Welcome to the new thread for Team Suck's OOBIE and YAPPIE nominations!

An OOBIE sucker is awarded to an "Out Of the Box" entry in a DPChallenge, something that meets the challenge in a creative fashion that DPC voters might not have properly appreciated.

A YAPPIE sucker is given to a commenter for either a particular comment or a history of great comments.

If you have ideas for someone who should get an OOBIE or a YAPPIE, please post your suggestions in this thread. It's helpful to have a blurb or even a poem about why you are making the nomination.

Description of the general nomination/voting process:

A. Nominations for OOBIEs are collected weekly, running from Sunday to the following Saturday. Nominations for YAPPIEs are collected throughout each month.

B. After the Team Suck standings are announced each week (team standings), two teams will be PM'd with a ballot for that week's OOBIE vote: the team that sucks the least for that week, and another randomly chosen team. Those voting each month on YAPPIEs are a randomly selected and PM'd group of 10 TSers.

C. The winners will be announced about a week after each voting round begins. OOBIEs are awarded weekly; YAPPIEs are currently awarded monthly. Each award gets its own announcement thread.

There are currently only 3 rules:

1) Please do not nominate yourself or your own photograph;

2) Please try to keep in mind that the YAPPIE is meant to recognize individuals more for the quality of their comments than for the sheer quantity that they produce, and nominate accordingly. For comment quantity recognition, please see the excellent work of ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Judi and her 100% Comments Club awards;

3) As much as we appreciate commenters, please hold nominations on repeat YAPPIE winners until 90 days have elapsed. To see a list of YAPPIE winners check the YAPPIE Hall of Fame, listed below.

So there you have it folks, let's inaugurate our new nominations thread - post your candidates for an OOBIE or a YAPPIE here!

A new round of nominations has begun - the OOBIE noms you post here between December 16-22 will go to the vote December 23.

Post your OOBIE and YAPPIE nominations here!

This might be an interesting idea, with the blur, but there are some things I personally would have fixed... the colors, first of all, are a little wild. Maybe less saturation would help, although perhaps you wanted the wild colors. There is lots of grain as well, which you might be able to fix by lowering the ISO. But then the picture can get too dark... Also, the picture appears rather washed out and overexposed. Overall, I would suggest a lower ISO setting, and a longer shutter-speed, and maybe a tripod or even a table-top or something to keep the camera steady and prevent the picture from getting too blurry. Hope some of that was helpful! :)

' Haneck (profile doesn't say man or woman, and I hesitate to conclude from the name alone, and thus the ackward use of username in this nomination) makes comments the way I like to see them made; expressing an opinion, being supportive but making suggestions, and often acknowledging that there are other ways to look at the image ("perhaps you wanted the wild colors").

While many comments (I think on a current side-challenge?) are brief, there are numerous gems with interesting observations made in a way that is respectful of the photographer's creativity and intention. Very pleasing to see and to read . . .

Totally agree with both of these; two of my high scores in the challenge, and both hammered by voters.

I loved this shot in "long exposure", and it got hammered. I kept going back and looking at it, it really does something for me. It's so "ordinary", and yet its oddly compelling. Almost like the two open challenges merged in the one image. And besides, if you look close you'll see the face of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle in the largest piece of laundry.

But, seriously, in the context of "long exposure" this is pretty OOB, being as subtle as it is.

Adding info to the nomination for ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' yospiff. In another thread, he wrote:

My largest frustration is when I think I have a great entry and it does low 5's with little feedback to tell me why. My answer to that issue has been to comment on everything I vote on. The result of commenting has been that taking the time to analyze why I do or don't like others shots has been contributing to an improvement in my own photos.

Comments:
Normally a shot of a single bird might not do it for me for this challenge, but the way this is presented most definitely meets the challenge. I love that the bird itself is not sharp - it's fluid and blurred and quite lovely. The motion can be felt. I love that the background is a background. I even like that the bird is centered. It speaks of transience, of beauty, of simple grace.

If this had been pin sharp it wouldn't be half so appealing. It has a very transient feel, like the snow it's flying through. Beautiful work :)


Very nice capture. I hope you don't get hit for the soft focus as it really adds to the effect of the shot.

I know it blue ribboned, but I think this shot should be considered for an OOBIE.

I think you're confusing OOB with Wow Factor
