@Lauro Sirgado: It's fixable? User:ArionEstarArionEstar (talk) 21:50, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment@ArionEstar:I like that. I respect the Kreuzschnabel opinion (Hi Kreuzschnabel), but I have my own. The choice of point of view was just to give the impression that the spider touched the riparian forest to an observer far from the picture in the original format. This species is well distributed (even in cities) and the photo was taken to show it in its wild habitat, remove the motif of picture and replace the background ruin the motivation of the photographer to choose the composition. Anyway add a background leave the unnatural picture, due to details of the spider would be an insane work, to stay so I took it as a good job. -- Lauro Sirgadocontribs 22:59, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg CommentTo achieve that effect, the spider and forest should be nearly equally sharp. The unsharpness of the forest gives too much depth into the image to generate the intended deception. That idea just didn’t come to my mind. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 06:02, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

    • I understand your argument with the container (could not move it), for me it is not very distracting. What do you mean with "lower part"? The lower part of the building or the lower part of the complete photo? Take a look on Suncalc: The only way to photograph the building with nice light is in summer about 1h before sunset (north facade). The consequence is that only the building is well lid, other parts are in shadow. For me no shortage, in contrary: a special quality of this photo. Nonetheless there are still a lot of details in the shadows - no 100% black. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:05, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
      • The lower part of the image (=1/3 of the complete image) is rapt in strong shadow. --Wladyslaw (talk) 08:18, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
        • Thanks for the info. I will take a further look on it in the evening. Some moderate brighening should be no big deal here because all shadow details are still visible. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:20, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
          • all shadow details are still visible Sorry, but this is definitely not the case. Behind the pillars the building structure is deeply dark. --Wladyslaw (talk) 09:08, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

High dynamic range night shot of Benidorm, turistic capital of the Costa Blanca (literally White Coast) in Land of Valencia, Spain. The shot was taken from the Cross of Benidorm, located on the summit of the Sierra Helada. Benidorm, is a town with 73,000 inhabitants throughout the year but with a peak of over half a million in the summer season. It's the third town with the most concentration of tall buildings in Europe, after London and Milan, whereas in Spain, Benidorm is positioned third, behind Barcelona and Madrid in the total number of skyscrapers. Nevertheless, Benidorm has the most high-rise buildings per capita in the world.

    I don't believe that this kind of shots can only be taken in the blue hour (actually, I have some for this cityscape, but prefer this version). Poco2 08:20, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
    • depends on the scenery. A scenery with much water which becomes deeply dark and takes a dominant position in the composition is not beneficial IMO. --Wladyslaw (talk) 09:14, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment With its 2.25 Mpixels, just barely scrapes over the 2 Mpixel minimal resolution requirement. The file page could benefit from a proper {{Information}} template and a geolocation. I think the photo as such is very good, with a good timing. Focus is soft on one of the birds, but I think excuseable. Some concerns were raised about the authenticity of this photo in its EN:WP nomination back in 2009. It appears they were not completely resolved. I am in doubt if this gets over the bar for FPs of birds nowadays. --Slaunger (talk) 20:33, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info@Slaunger.I loaded a new image with larger size, based on the original as the quality of the original photo is good was possible to recover details and not just make a large copy devoid of value, please rate, if you disagree I revert the image.

      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment@Lauro Sirgado:See Commons:Overwriting existing files. It is very good that you have uploaded a photo of higher resolution, and it is certainly uncontroversial for this nomination as no-one has actually voted yet. It is a bit more controversial because the same file is promoted to featured status on both the English and Turkish wikipedias. However, as I see it it is clearly an improvement in this case and thus should not cause any problems with regard to the previous promotions. Overwriting an image with one of larger resolution is also mentioned explicitly as allowed, although one is cautioned when it comes to images with assessments that not other alterations are done at the same time. --Slaunger (talk) 20:05, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Since the creator is available for questioning: In the nomination at the English Wikipedia, an editor raised a concern/question if this was actually a staged shot? He also mentioned that the background appeared artificial. Could a little more details be revealed about the conditions of the shot on the file page (if this is still recallable, it has been some years :-) ) to shed some light on this? --Slaunger (talk) 20:12, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment@Slaunger:Do not know the author, and do not feel comfortable doing any inquiry, although we are geographically close. In the original I noticed a discontinuous and undefined boundary between the background and the motif, but does not progress on areas of detail of the barb of feathers, can be the result of image compression, but that's just a guess. -- Lauro Sirgadocontribs 21:13, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It's a nice photo, but I don't think it has a wow factor. Perhaps the image is a bit soft, but that's not a big issue. Overall, I don't think it is outstanding, for example the background is not chosen very well, imo (the statues are cut). Also the lamp in the background at the right bottom is a bit distracting --DXR (talk) 19:00, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm surprised that morally opinions are part of a FP review. Might it be, that you just love to attract attention? For a photographer, a critics about technique or composition is acceptable, but this kind of opposition is kind of hurting, to tell you the truth. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 11:41, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
It was meant as a joke. I thought a position as absurd as being morally opposed to empty baskets was transparent enough. Apparently not. Saffron Blaze (talk) 14:57, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Saffron Blaze, in a multilingual project such as Commons, it may not be evident for all non-native English speaking users, or users with other cultural backgrounds, what is intended to be a joke. In honesty, I was in doubt too, if you were joking or not. I think, that if it was meant to be a joke it would have been more reasonable to add it as a comment instead of an oppose vote. Due to your single joke-oppose, the FPC cannot be speedy closed after five days, but now have to stay open the full period. The 5-day rule for no-brainer FPs is intended for cleaning up clutter on the FPC page and let reviewers focus on the images, which actually need more attention from reviewers. Thus, I think the criticism raised by Cccefalon is justified. In addition getting a "clean sheet" promotion is kinda like an extra acknowledgement. Something I have never achieved myself, but which I have great respect for when happens - when it is justified as in this caseSmile. --Slaunger (talk) 15:20, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I took it as a joke too but remember your "joke" keeps this nomination from swift featuring. Put as comment it would have been funny but an oppose (which will be counted as serious by the bot) is ridiculous. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 05:49, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

      • I gree on your comment that "An insect on a plant is a natural component you usually find in the field" so let me repeat what a have written before: "A shadow is also a natural thing, and natural things can be reasons for opposing, see Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:City Palace detail 01 - Berlin.jpg". And by the way, people in museums are also natural "components" you usually find in museums, but you don't see persons on many pictures of museum artifacts. --Nobelpeopleuploader (talk) 06:50, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment There is a remarkable variation of sharpness in this stitching. I've marked two unsharp parts (one at 2/3, the other one at the right border). Surely, you have border unsharpness with wide angle shots, but with stichtings it is avoidable. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:46, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't think the blurred areas are caused by lens corner (lack of) sharpness, but maybe by a dirty lens. It's repeated on the horizontal axis at regular intervals. There are a few stitching error as well (with some "duplicated lines" on low mid left area). Like two other previous noms of same place, light comes from above and is harsh, and makes for a very flat subject. But composition is nicer here. Consider my oppose void if the stitching issues are fixed. - Benh (talk) 13:09, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Alternative view on the Butter Tubs Pass

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Alternative view on the Butter Tubs Pass from a different point of view, showing the road not that dominant in the foreground. Light has changed a bit during those few minutes, not for the worst I think. Hopefully, the sheepfold in the lower right is interesting enough a detail. Oh yes, and this one is cropped to 3:2 ratio as well for those who don’t like µFT’s native ratio :-) On support, I will withdraw the other nomination.

Mønsted limestone mines
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created, uploaded and nominated by Slaunger -- Slaunger (talk) 23:01, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info An illuminated path in the largest limestone mine in the world, Mønsted limestone mine in Denmark. The limestone mine has been excavated over a period of almost 1000 years from the early 11th century untill 1978, mainly by using pickaxes or other handheld tools. The mine has over 60 km paths of which 2 km are illuminated. Some paths are like huge halls, others not passageable by a grown man. In the path shown here is clearly seen how thick layers of limestone alternate with thin layers of flint. The photo itself is an exposure fusion between three bracketed exposures with exposure times of 6, 15 and 30 seconds using CA corrected raw files as input into PTgui. In hindsight, I should have had an even shorther exposure time on the most underexposed photo as the point light sources are slightly burnt in even the 6 sec exposure. Done with an aperture of f/10 and ISO 200 (if i go higher I begin to introduce notieable noise with my camera). I have spend a great deal of time playing around with the exposure fusion to highlight the layered structure, which is not quite as evident when you are in the mines, as well as make the representation faithful. It appears lighter than it really is, as the light sources are weak. A ghost is seen in the long time exposure shot wearing a handheld lamp leaving a light trail. Almost unavoidable due to many guests in the mines.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The encyclopedic value of such a shot is undoubtedly high, your explanation is very interesting and one can guess that the shooting conditions were challenging.. But from a pure photographic viewpoint I cannot see FP aspects here: I cannot get a compositional idea, the motive is visually not interesting (no interesting stone formations, no interesting colors), the bright lights distracts from the structure of the mine which should be the main motive. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:03, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
    • @Tuxyso: Thanks for taking your time to review the photo and provide a detailed explanation. A photo of a limestone mine will of course be rather limestone colored all over with no particularly interesting stones. I think the layer formation between limestone and flint is quite notable in the photo formed in a surprisingly complicated process. But of course, taste differs, and I respect you do not think it has it. --Slaunger (talk) 19:53, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Weak Symbol support vote.svg Support. I share a few concerns with Tuxyso, namely the lack of interesting colours or rock formations, although I am still wowed enough by the image to support. --Lewis Hulbert (talk) 00:56, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
