  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Could you please consider an horizontal perspective correction ? The shoals benches !!! should be horizontal, IMO (see note). Thank you.--Jebulon (talk) 13:57, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
    • I don't think it's as simple as that. I'm not sure why they are not horizontal image but it could even be that they are not not actually physically aligned perfectly with the aisle (unlikely, but possible). Usually when the verticals are corrected and the centre of the panorama is defined accurately (which it is, I think), then any horizontal lines which are parallel with the plane of the camera remain straight and horizontal. If they do not, I usually suspect there is actually a genuine reason for it. Also, I made a panorama looking towards the back of the church and the pews lean in exactly the same way for that panorama too. Yes, it's possible that I made a mistake in my technique somewhere, but I don't think so. I've made many similar panoramas without any such issues, and I don't think that my equipment could be the cause of an issue. I'm using a quality 35mm lens with virtually no distortion (and what distortion it does have, I correct in Lightroom), and I'm using a panoramic head so there should not be any stitching or alignment errors that could introduce a lean. In any case, I don't think it's possible to 'correct' them without introducing distortion or leaning elsewhere in the image. Diliff (talk) 18:03, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
    • Thank you for quick and detailed answer. I'm sorry if I'm not convinced by your explanation. I have to look at this more carefuly, but I've never seen shoals benches !!! like this before, so far from the altar. No logical reason.--Jebulon (talk) 19:43, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
      • Well, regardless of whether you are convinced, I don't see that it is an easy correction to make without affecting other parts of the image. Changing the tilt of the seating will affect other true horizontal lines. Also, what exactly do you mean by shoal? See the typical English use here, which doesn't have much relevance to a church. ;-) Diliff (talk) 11:44, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
        • lol ! Shame to Google translator ! Sorrysorrysorry ! The "collective seats" are named "bancs", in french. You link me to another meaning of "bancs", and I made the mistake ! Thanks for correction.--Jebulon (talk) 21:10, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

          • No problem. :-) We call them pews in English usually. A pew is a bench specifically for churches. Maybe it's a Anglo-centric word, because the article certainly talks mainly about English Protestant churches. Google tells me the word pew comes from the old French 'puye' which in turn comes from the Latin 'podium'. But a pew is not a podium.... Anyway, enough linguistics!

    • What does 'cut down' mean? If you mean cropped, then yes, I carefully cropped the image to get the framing I wanted. But what specifically about the composition makes you oppose? Diliff (talk) 10:05, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Yes, the seats are cut, that's what I mean --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 13:37, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
I would have preferred more of the seats in the foreground too, but it was not physically possible. My tripod was pushed up against a pillar directly behind the camera, so I could not go back any further. And to tilt the camera down further would result in a lot of distortion. Already, the viewpoint is looking down at perhaps a 60 degree angle at the bottom of the frame. The field of view is extremely large. Diliff (talk) 10:01, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
I underestand the situation. You could merge severals pictures in the future? --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 11:46, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Capturing the whole of an interior like this is not easy. The wide angle-of-view can lead to all sorts of stretched and distorted forms, and features such as columns and chandeliers can look awful. This image shows a good control of these problems and has a strong three-dimensional feel. The level of detail is great, as one would expect from Diliff, and the bright natural lighting is handled well. -- Colin (talk) 10:36, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

    • It is normal. Only the 'central' oculus is round, the rest are genuinely oval-shaped. I think they are progressively more oval shaped, but I'm not sure and did not pay enough attention at the time. There may be some perspective distortions at the periphery but nothing that would make a circle look so oval-shaped. 14:12, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

    Not less sharp than some of building photographs getting promoted here (and also supported by you sometimes); yes, quite mobile birdy which does not stand still for more than some seconds; and - yes, some noise but certainly not chromatic (=colour) one. --A.Savin 19:09, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
    Don't be angry ! I know what "chromatic" means, I learnt ancient greek when I was young, and the word is the same in French. So, there is chromatic noise, as I said. And I find the bird, especialy the face, not sharp enough, sorry. And yes, I've probably made mistakes in my votes. Didn't you ?--Jebulon (talk) 21:26, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
    Actually, I think A.Savin is right, there is noise but it's not chromatic. Chromatic noise would be a mixture of red, blue and green blotches. There's very little of that in the image. It's just luminance noise. Diliff (talk) 12:47, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
    I don't buy the "we have promoted images that are worse than this" argument you've raised here and in another photo. That some weak images get through isn't an reason to promote another weak image. If that argument held, we'd be on a downward spiral towards mediocrity. Perhaps we are :-(. I'd be very surprised if any 10MP unsharp building image got promoted these days. Comparing building and animal photography is pretty silly anyway. Jebulon, a captive bird can be trained to land and stay quite close to people. So it it would be possible to get as close as one desired and the keeper/circumstances allow. With a wild bird, one would be happy to even get the bird to fill the frame of a huge zoom lens.

      • Your assumption is wrong. This picture is really unsharp, if examined at 100 percent. If it wasn't unsharp, I'd have not voted here at all; because this picture is not that interesting to me to take time to review (matter of taste; therefore it would be unfair to oppose just because of this). Believe me or not, but I find "revenge votes" sort of kindergarten behaviour and I don't practice them. Maybe you do; but nonetheless please do not judge others by your own standards. --A.Savin 21:58, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

      • I agree the image isn't as sharp as we might want and we have lots of megapixel stitched architecture images that show greater detail than this. But unlike QI, FP is judged for wow and artistic qualities which can mitigate against technical issues. When I saw this picture I went wow, both for the effect of the subject itself and also the pose of the man in the archway. It makes a great picture overall. This is the heart of FP, not pixel peeping. But everyone sets their thresholds and balances at different levels so I can accept some think the technical deficiencies (whether sharpness or noise) are too much. -- Colin (talk) 10:29, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
        • About sharpness: please remember this is not "architecture", but "painting". What you see is a flat wall, one cannot compare with any other facade. The painted lines are not as "pin" if it was a real relief (on purpose IMO).--Jebulon (talk) 14:58, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
          • I appreciate that, and studied the real bits too. There is some grain/noise that removes sharpness -- not sure if due to processing like Tuxyo suggests. But ultimately I guess we are looking a raw captured pixels rather than a downsized image, and it is rarely perfect at that level. Maybe you should try your hand at stitched panorama! -- Colin (talk) 15:42, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
          • I don't think I'm able ! Actually I don't know how to do.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose (weak) I also like the innovative composition as said by other reviews. But imho the problem of the photo is the bad light. It looks for me as if you extremely pushed the shadow parts of the building which lead to some unfavorable noise at the facade. Probably you just excluded the sky because it had been burnt out due to back light. For a photo with a strong accentuation on the structure of the facade it is not crisp enough. --Tuxyso (talk) 04:07, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

If you don't want as extreme as 3:1 then keeping the bottom but cropping the top is still better imo. -- Colin (talk) 13:43, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Daniel it is not the question if I trust you and Yann or not. If it is the perception of you then I take it seriously. Nonetheless a few questions: What is the best brightness for such a shot? As you can see it is not a classical cityscape - you have only lights which brighten the main building and few lights at the left part of the bridge - the dark parts are trees. In short: Longer exposure with HDR or earlier shot? I've exposed in a way that the bright parts of the building are barely not burnt. Additionaly the sun sets behind the right part of the building thus you have at the beginning of the blue hour a strong brightness gradient on the sky. Another possibility had been to take the shot early in the morning before sunrise (sun behind me), but I do not know if the nice lighting of the building is there at that time. What would you suggest? --Tuxyso (talk) 07:41, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
  • In my opinion, the darkness is correct. It is night, and this emphasizes the situation. A night shot, in which can be seen more than is lit, I think is unrealistic. This composition with the lights reflected in the water and the rest of the twilight hour I find a good balance.--XRay talk 08:23, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
There's no EV in this one because we can't really see the shape of the building behind the lights. Therefore the darkness is not correct. Daniel Case (talk) 03:29, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Cartoon of British views on the war against Spain, Pyne 1790-1810.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support as nominator; see this jpeg version if you prefer to use the Commons ZoomViewer. This is a difficult document to digitize due to size (45 inches or 1.14 metres wide) and this is part of the reason for nominating it as an exemplar of the excellent work of the archivists at the Library of Congress in releasing the British Cartoon Prints Collection. Pyne was notable for establishing the Royal Watercolour Society. This cartoon is historically significant as it was made at the time of the Anglo-Spanish War (1796–1808) showing stereotypes of the Spanish as expressed by different classes of the British population. It is a rare example of William Pyne's humorous cartoons (the only political cartoon of his that I can find on Commons), the majority of his published work being palace illustrations and British costumes. The digitization shows detail of costumes and characters, sufficient for each to be taken as a separate detailed illustration. The full size image shows natural foxing due to age, and creases from being folded up, which it was designed to do, but these do not detract from the impact or quality of the etchings. The main humour of the text is to poke fun at the Spanish, with the cobbler calling them "fish-eating rascals" and the journalists for the Spanish Gazette having nothing to report (on the left) while the British cryers (on the right) are exhausted from having ten years worth of incidents to report in one day. I would hope that a consequence of bringing attention to this cartoon would be to help improve Wikipedia articles about Pyne, at the moment the article about his life exists only in English and is a stub. -- (talk) 15:51, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Capilla de Lourdes
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Very nice scene but overprocessed and soft at 6MP. Why are the colours so different in File:Lourdes Chapel.jpg which appears to be the same photo but without the bird removed. The trees in the nomination photo have a white outline against the sky, compared to the other photo. The sloping white faces of the church are near white in the second photo but considerably darker in this nomination, suggesting the highlights are lowered too much -- a white surface facing the sun would be expected to be white. This makes the tonal range compressed. The scene could be fantastic at a slightly better time of year when the trees are less bare. -- Colin (talk) 12:23, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Could you elaborate a bit on the shooting conditions? I obviously have no business with this sort of photography and will therefore not make a vote, but the exif leaves me a bit wondering. Did you hand-hold it for 0.2s or could you push it against something stable? It looks a bit soft (in the sense of denoised) to me for a ISO 400 image. --DXR (talk) 20:00, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
    • Speechless again... Lack of base of the cushion, and questions about Exif Data, that's only what suggests this picture ? I took this image hand hold (or maybe I used the glass as stable surface, I don't remember). I post processed with Lightroom5, and after that with GIMP. I used luminance and color denoising with Lightroom5, adjusted sharpness a very little, and the white balance too. After that, with GIMP, I used the selective blur tool in order to correct the noise of some pearls, one after the other. I removed some disturbing elements in background by cloning out, and corrected the perspective a very little bit. This image was taken without tripod nor flash in a museum full of tourists, behind a glass, it is as difficult as it is interesting, a real challenge.--Jebulon (talk) 21:00, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
      • I'm not looking to get into an argument here, but I'm not sure you should be "speechless" that an image of a crown, even if it's admittedly a beautiful one, will not blow everyone of his feet if nominated as a commons FP. As I said, I will refrain from voting, but I think my question regarding the quality was legitimate and your comments help assess the quality of your work here in a postive way. --DXR (talk) 21:31, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The fact that it was challenging to capture this picture does not add any value to the photo. Photographers often mistakenly think it does but I'm afraid it doesn't. Some get rewarded because they were lucky, some work hard and and the outcome is slightly above the average.

    • As for me, I just asked for assessments, nothing else. I gave explanations because I was asked for. I don't think long discussions make a photo better (I tend to think the contrary).

Well, frankly, I think submitting more-or-less the same unexciting image to FP three times is "not very polite" and just gaming the system. What if everyone did this in the hope that one time the previous opposers might be on holiday or grow tired of opposing? This is a long way from the most impressive example of rock formations in the region (try Google). So are we to expect every funny looking rock in the region to get nominated here? I await Cirque de Mourèze, Hérault 3745.jpg. This is just a QI. The camera did its job.

  • no problem with copyright here, no prolems with colours, very nice view, good technical accomplishment, but I am not happy with some strong overexposed parts, especially the area of the Statue of Liberty and surrounding. The strong flashlight at top of the Eiffel Tower and some not very important illuminated advertising I`m willing to excuse. But the mentioned area is eye-catching and should be reprocessesed IMO. --Wladyslaw (talk) 17:42, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Wladyslaw, I agree with you that it is not ideal, but you should keep in mind that bridge is extremely bright while the buildings are only illuminated by ambient light. I have already tried all what can be done with normal raw files and I think the result is borderline but just acceptable, although I understand other opinions here. In principle, HDRs could solve that, but that will probably cause a massive mess with the water, especially when stiched. Perhaps this conflict could be avoided by shooting earlier (I will certainly do this in the future), this was not possible on that day since a cruise ship was turning in the river, pretty much destroying the scene. --DXR (talk) 20:40, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Can you try partial HDR only in this mentioned areas? I know it's much work. I agree with you that HDR will destroy the water, this is here definitivly a highlight. So I thought about partial work. -- -donald- (talk) 07:41, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately I do not have the exact frame in different exposures, so HDR is not really an option here. The only possiblity would be cloning these areas from a slightly different frame. This would certainly take hours if done very well on my desktop with a fast processor and a good mouse, but unfortunately I cannot access this PC until the end of May since it is at my home in Germany. I have tried it on my slightly old laptop but the results are just not good enough in gimp since everything is just lagging and precise operations are very difficult when dealing with such large files. --DXR (talk) 12:05, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

  • strong Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Very hard to review, the new version have very different colours and the source link dosnt work for me. For a historical work of art, I expect that the reproduction is as faithful as possible. The image is also cropped!--ArildV (talk) 11:00, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
This is the the original version I got directly from source. I remind you: First of all This image is not cropped. Second, Even if you see images from original source, it is not faithful. This small water paint has been drawn on a piece of paper about 200 years ago. During the time paper color became dark yellow to brown (If you see unretouched black and white images of this book, you can see this effect much better). The paints color has been changed as well during time. Therefore after changing some tones, not 100% sure but I believe it is more likely to the original image at the time it has been drawn. You can see drawings, specially sky, is much more clear than before.Monfie (talk) 15:38, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Not cropped? The original version have more sky.--ArildV (talk) 16:33, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
