Alla on tämänhetkiset ehdokkaat suositelluiksi kuviksi. Huomaa, että tämä ei ole sama asia kuin päivän kuva.

Ehdottaminen[edit]

Ohjeita ehdottajille[edit]

Lue läpi Commons:Image guidelines ennen kuvan ehdottamista.

Alla on yhteenveto siitä, mitä tulee tarkastella arvioidessa kuvan sopivuutta suositelluksi kuvaksi:

  • Resoluutio – Yleensä kuvat, joiden resoluutio on alle kaksi megapikseliä, on hylätty. Alle kahden megapikselin kuva voidaan hyväksyä vain poikkeustapauksessa. Huomaa, että kuvassa, jonka resoluutio on 1 600 × 1 200, on noin 1,92 megapikseliä, joten se on kelvoton.
Commonsissa sijaitsevia kuvia voidaan käyttää muuhunkin kuin tietokoneen näytöllä katselemiseen. Niitä voidaan tulostaa tai katsella suurella resoluutiolla olevilla monitoreilla. Emme voi ennustaa, millaisia laitteistot tulevat olemaan tulevaisuudessa, joten kuvan tulee olla niin suurella resoluutiolla kuin mahdollista.
  • Fokus – kuvan tärkeimpien kohteiden tulisi olla teräviä.
  • Edusta ja tausta – edustalla ja taustalla olevat asiat voivat olla häiritseviä. Tarkista, että edustalla olevat kohteet eivät peitä mitään kuvan kannalta tärkeää ja taustalla olevat kohteet eivät pilaa asetelmaa, esimerkiksi katuvalo ei näytä tulevan jonkun päästä.
  • Tekninen korkealaatuisuus – suositellun kuvan tulee olla teknisesti korkealaatuinen.
  • Digitaaliset manipulaatiot eivät saa vetää nenästä kuvan katsojaa. Kuvassa olevien kauneusvirheiden korjaaminen on sallittua, jos korjaus on tehty hyvin ja sen tarkoituksena ei ole vääristää kuvaa. Hyväksyttäjä manipulaatioita ovat rajaus, perspektiivin oikaisu, terävöittäminen, sumentaminen ja valotuksen sekä värien korjailu. Monimutkaisemmat manipulaatiot ovat sallittuja vain, jos mallinetta {{Retouched picture}} käytetään kuvaussivulla. Kuvauksettomat tai väärin kuvatut monimutkaiset manipulaatiot ovat kiellettyjä.
  • Arvo – päätavoitteenamme on erottaa arvokkaimmat kuvat muista. Suositellun kuvan tulee olla jotenkin erikoinen.
    • Auringonlaskuista otetut valokuvat ovat kaikki vähän samanlaisia (Valokuvia)(Suomessa otettuja valokuvia)
    • Yökuvat saattavat olla hienompia, mutta päiväkuvista ilmenee yleensä enemmän tietoa
    • Kaunis ei ole sama asia kuin arvokas

Teknisiä yksityiskohtia käsitellään kohdissa valotus, asetelma, liikkeenhallinta ja terävyysalue.

  • Valotus – valotuksella tarkoitetaan valokuvauksessa kameran filmiin tallentuvaa tai digitaalikamerassa valoherkän kennon tallentamaa valon määrää. Valotuksen tulisi olla sopiva. Laajat ylivalottuneet alueet ovat usein häiritseviä.
  • Asetelma – asetelmalla tarkoitetaan kuvan esineiden sijoittumista toisiinsa nähden. ”Kolmoissääntö” (esimerkkikuva) on hyvä nyrkkisääntö siitä, millainen on hyvä asetelma. Kolmoissäännön ideana on, että kuva jaetaan kahdella pystyviivalla ja kahdella vaakaviivalla yhdeksään osaan (3×3). Pääaiheen sijoittaminen tiukasti kuvan keskelle on yleensä huonompi vaihtoehto mielenkiintoisuuden kannalta kuin pääaiheen sijoittaminen johonkin neljästä viivojen muodostamasta risteyksestä. Horisonttia ei tulisi sijoittaa kuvan keskelle, vaan jommankumman viivan keskelle. Kolmoissäännön avulla saadaan luotua dynaaminen kuva.
  • Liikkeenhallinta – liikkeenhallinnalla tarkoitetaan sitä, miten liike näkyy kuvassa. Liike voi olla terävää tai epätarkkaa. Jompikumpi aina ei ole paras vaihtoehto, vaan tärkeintä on aikomus havainnollistaa jotain. Liike on suhteellista kuvan kohteisiin verrattuna. Esimerkiksi valokuva ralliautosta, joka näyttäisi olevan paikallaan taustaa vasten, on huonompi vaihtoehto kuin valokuva ralliautosta, joka näkyy terävästi, mutta jonka tausta on sumuista, koska tällöin liikkeen huomaa helposti. Tätä kutsutaan ”panoroinniksi”. Toisaalta valokuva hyppäävästä koripallon pelaajasta, joka näyttää olevan paikallaan taustaa vasten, on hyvä sen epäluonnollisuuden takia.
  • Terävyysalue – terävyysalueella tarkoitetaan kuvan kohteen terävyyttä ympäristöön verrattuna. Terävyysalue valitaan jokaisen kuvan kohdalla erikseen. Suuri tai pieni terävyysalue voi huonontaa tai parantaa kuvan laatua. Pientä terävyysaluetta voidaan käyttää erottamaan pääkohde muusta ympäristöstä. Näin katsojan huomio kiinnittyy haluttuun kohteeseen. Suurta terävyysaluetta voidaan taas käyttää tilan havainnollistamiseen. Lähtökohtaisesti syväterävyysalue muodostuu sitä lyhyemmäksi, mitä suurempaa aukkoarvoa valokuvaaja käyttää. Vastaavasti pientä aukkoarvoa käytettäessä syväterävyysalue voi ulottua kuvan etualalta äärettömään. Aukon arvon lisäksi syväterävyysalueeseen vaikuttaa kuitenkin myös objektiivin todellinen polttoväli ja toisaalta kohteen etäisyys kuvaajasta.

Alla käsitellään vielä grafiikkaa.

  • Terävyys – pääkohteiden ääriviivojen on oltava teräviä.
  • Kolmiulotteisuus – kolmiulotteisuuden on oltava laadukasta. Parhaiten tämä onnistuu siten, että valo tulee kohteen sivulta. Yleensä kuvaajasta päin tuleva valo ei onnistu luomaan kunnollista kolmiulotteista vaikutelmaa, vaan se johtaa litteään vaikutelmaan. Paras valo ulkona on aamulla tai illalla.
  • Värit – värit eivät saa olla liian kylläisiä.
  • Tekstuuri – kohteen pinnan on oltava kolmiulotteisen näköinen ja laadukas.
  • Perspektiivi – kuvan tulee olla kolmiulotteinen.
  • Tasapaino – kuvan kohteiden tulisi olla tasapainossa keskenään. Suurta määrää kohteita ei tulisi jommallakummalla puolella.
  • Mittasuhde – mittasuhteella tarkoitetaan kuvan kohteiden kokoa toisiinsa verrattuna. Yleensä meillä taipumus esittää pienet kohteet pieninä, mutta toisaalta pienen kohteen esittäminen suurena luonnossa suurta kohdetta vasten on myös hyvä tekniikka, esimerkiksi kukan esittäminen vuorta vasten.
  • Symbolinen tarkoitus – huono kuva vaikeasta aiheesta on parempi kuin hyvä kuva helposta aiheesta.
Valokuvaaja ja/tai sen katselija voivat tarkastella kuvan kohdetta puolueellisesti. Kuvan arvoa ei tulisi arvioida arvioijan kulttuurillisen taustan perusteella, vaan se tulisi arvioida kuvan kulttuurillisen taustan perusteella. Hyvä kuva ”puhuu” katsojalle herättäen sellaisia tunteita kuin ilo, sympatia, herkkyys, suru, inho, viha ja raivo. Hyvän kuvan herättämät tunteet eivät ole vain positiivisia.

Käytäntö[edit]

Yleiset säännöt[edit]

  1. Äänestys on auki tasan yhdeksän vuorokautta ehdotuksen tekemisen jälkeen.
  2. Käyttäjätunnuksettomat käyttäjät saavat ehdottaa ja keskustella, mutta eivät äänestää.
  3. Ehdotus ei ole ääni. Ääni on annettava erikseen.
  4. Ehdottaja voi vetää ehdotuksen pois lisäämällä {{withdraw|~~~~}} äänestyssivulle.
  5. Wikimedia Commons ei ole vain Wikipedian kuvavarasto, joten kuvia ei tule arvioida vain Wikipediaan soveltuvuuden perusteella.
  6. Jos kuva ei saa muita kannattavia ääniä kuin ehdottajan viiden vuorokauden kuluessa ehdotuksen tekemisestä, poistoäänestys tulee lopettaa.
  7. Mallineella {{FPX}} merkitty poistoäänestys tulee lopettaa 24 tunnin kuluttua mallineen lisäämisestä, jos muita kannatusääniä kuin ehdottajan ei ole.

Statuksen muutos[edit]

Kuvasta tulee suositeltu kuva, jos se täyttää seuraavat vaatimukset:

  1. Kuvaussivulla on hyväksytty ja totuudenmukainen tekijänoikeusmalline
  2. Vähintään viisi kannatusääntä
  3. Vähintään kaksi kolmasosaa äänistä kannattavia
  4. Saman kuvan eri versiosta vain yksi saa olla suositeltu kuva. Siitä kuvasta, joka on kerännyt eniten kannattavia ääniä, tulee suositeltu kuva.

Statuksen poistoehdotuksen kohdalla sovelletaan samoja sääntöjä. Jos statuksen poistoa kannattavia ääniä ei ole tullut ehdottajan äänen lisäksi viiden vuorokauden kuluessa ehdotuksen teosta, äänestys tulee sulkea.

Ohjeita äänestyksen lopettamisesta on sivulla Commons:Featured picture candidates/What to do after voting is finished.

Arvostele hyvien tapojen mukaisesti[edit]

Muista, että kuva jota kommentoit on jonkun tekemä. Älä käytä sellaista tyyliä kommenteissasi kuin ”Vihaan kuvaa”, ”Kuva on ihan ruma” tai ”Kamala kuva”.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose In recent times we had a lot of nominations of church windows (party techincally at a very high level). My everlasting problem with such nominations is, that the personal contribution of the photographer is difficult to recognize in that case. From a technical perspective the photo here is imho only average. It looks rather soft and on the left side there are bright border areas which are distracting. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:10, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Agreed with Tuxyso, and I’d like the sides to be vertical (if they are in reality as I suppose). --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 07:35, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Splendid image. Stained glass an accepted 2-D category on Commons. Can't follow "personal contribution". Of course if the editor knows it's not a faithful representation, that's another matter. No reason to suppose that is so here. Straight enough for me. Perfectly straight probably too straight. All these fantastically straight images ultimately tedious IMHO. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 08:20, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

I would support editing it out providing it's a documented separate file linked to the original. I'm not sure it can be within the guidelines. And besides maybe she was really being 'lifted'... It is pretty intrusive I have to admit. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 08:07, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree, the flash light is a bit harsh. But it was very dark in the shed, the camera had a hard time focusing, and the build in flash was all I had. Maybe I should get one of those softboxes that fit over the build in flash, that shouldn't take up much room in my small camera bag.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created, uploaded, and nominated by Pundit - I got absolutely fascinated by this shrine complex in Fushimi Inari Torii in Kyoto. What do you think? -- Pundit (talk) 11:57, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support I'm supporting everything orange today.

Good luck. I'll be watching myself. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 17:51, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Nice comp, but the green leaves outside look heavily and unnaturally oversaturated to me. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 19:38, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Massively oversaturated (take a look on the histrogram of the red chanel), perspective issues. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:13, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
So is Van Gogh's Sunflowers. What exactly is the perspective issue here? It's 18mm on a f3.5 lens, pretty standard. Looks fine to me. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 08:59, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Take a look at the bottom of the columns at the left side - they look rather distorted. The columns are not fully straight in real but also not that converging as the photo implies (take a look on other photos in the same catgegory). But the main reason for my oppose is the massively blown red channel not the perspective. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:09, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Colors are definitely in vivid mode and may be overdone, I'm curious though what could I have possibly do better next time to make the columns more straight? Do you think that the lenses distorted the actual view? Pundit (talk) 09:12, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Have you used a tripod in combination with a leveler? Have you done any perspective corrections on the computer or is the photo "out of the cam"? --Tuxyso (talk) 11:24, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
I have Nikon Capture NX2 and it's default Distortion control of 10% has a barely noticeable effect on the image. The saturation isn't "massive". It's comfortably within 10% in NX2 I would say and a glance at the category confirms the image is not deceiving the viewer, the FP criterion. There's no such thing as the "right" image in photography (lesson 1) and I'm worried that criticism at this level might be alienating ordinary contributors with realtively unsophisticated equipment or resources. It's essentially elitist in my view, and while it has it may have place amongst established contributors of images on Commons, I do think we should be wary of discouraging new contributors. The image looks great. End of. And my comment about composition is quite right, as you can readily confirm looking through the category. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 14:06, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
No perspective corrections or tripod, I leaned the camera on one of the poles of stability. Pundit (talk) 11:55, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Colors are over saturated and when you tilt the lens you will gets perspective distortion. When it looks good, what's the problem? Seems like that perspective is the new noise to complain about. --Baykedevries (talk) 13:40, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

    • @Fotoriety: Thanks for the review. Regarding the foregound and surroundings in general I left some space around to allow the building to "breathe". For me the featureless foreground helps the main subject to stand out. Is it correct that you think it should have been cropped tighter? I am sorry you do not like the lightning. I really like it myself and how the sky and coads are partially reflected in the curved ceramic shields surrounding the building. Anyway, there are so many possibilities for taking photos of this building regarding the vantage point, time of day and weather conditions. It is almost like a chameleon to me. If you look at the other photos in Viborg power plant, are there any elements in the framing, light vantage point in some of the other shots which are worthwhile to explore further in your opinion? I live close by, so it is easy to take new shots at it. Or, are you just non-wowed by this building in general? --Slaunger (talk) 06:31, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I was about to say the same. A wikilink in the nom or information page is always handy but my browser has a search box. There's a geocode link too. I'd much rather nominators explained why they think the image is among our finest, which is something I can't find out for myself with a click. -- Colin (talk) 17:53, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Sure I can do a search, but I'm not going to. If you think a picture is feature worthy you can take the time to add a decent description. For me a good description is important and At some point I'm going to ignore pictures without. I'm making a point here. Don't take it personally :) But to many pictures are missing descriptions --Baykedevries (talk) 18:09, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Since I haven’t understood your point yet, let me ask once again: What do you expect? Or maybe point out some of the active nominations that do have descriptions after your liking (most don’t have any at all, just "c/u/n by $NAME", without you complaining, AFAIS). I really don’t know what you mean. The picture shows the Pennine Way climbing a mountain named Pen-y-ghent from its southern side. That’s what my description says, so IMHO it’s a proper description of the photograph. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 22:22, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
          • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with Baykedevries that often file descriptions (on the file page - it is those that matters) are inadequate as important information is often missing regarding the particular image, but this is not one of those cases. The file page is adequately categorized to e.g. Pen-y-ghent and Pennine Way and if you follow those links, there are interwiki links to articles in several different languages (after I have added them, that is, as they were initially missing). If the nominator were to copy that information to the file page (in how many languages?), it would just be maintenance of redundant information. It would contaminate, not add value. I do think though that it is generally a good idea if nominators check that main categories are adequately linked to wikipedia articles, such that the relevant information can be found fast and efficient. The interwiki links are often missing on Commons categories. --Slaunger (talk) 23:21, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

For me more a photo targeted at a 500px audience. --Slaunger (talk) 15:58, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Please don't correct the verticals, it really spoils it... my composition is on purpose : worm's view is dramatic, and the perspective lines lead your eye to the dramatic sky which enhances the effect even more. I was just trying to check how audience would react, as I'm on a "processing pictures" momentum. I'd like to point out that although it's heavily processed, the original picture already looked like that. HDR only help to brighten up the church (and again, I try to keep a natural look). I'll upload a pic for comparison if I think about it tonight (and I still have to fix the pont du gard picture as I promised). This is a recurring issue, but the noise (which is very small, but can be fixed) and overlapping issues won't be visible until scrutinized at 100%. Even large print would look nice.

      • You're right. My comment was more in an FPC context and "please don't alter the nomination" would be a better statement. This is not en:FPC where you can apply this kind of fix, because it's for the sake of encyclopeadic value. If this photo is to be promoted, I would like it to be because people like it the way I meant it. I think commons FPC is more a ground for that.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Are you going for something that might grace the cover of a gothic novel? If so, it isn't nearly dramatic enough. Possibly a strong crop on just the church would help. The trees, wall, path and colour all have a taming effect. The sky isn't particularly foreboding. I agree completely with Benh on the vertical "correction". This isn't an architectural shot and one simply can't correct verticals on a picture taken this close without introducing a ridiculous stretching effect. In terms of sharpness/megapixels, I have recently discovered the wiki software lets you create links to images at any size. So one could suggest that the image be "reviewed for sharpness" at a given size, while still uploading/nominating a larger image if desired. For example, it looks sharp at 50% reduction (2.5MP). At 66% reduction (4.4MP) it looks ok. While those sizes would be underwhelming for an architectural nomination, they might be sufficient for an image with enough wow. -- Colin (talk) 12:05, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Agree with everything. Review size should be something automated, but this was discussed a lot already. You may be right for the framing affecting the effect. I've played a little with recroping and the results are interesting. Will think about it (but the picture doesn't seem to attract much interest anyways, so will be for myself :) ). - Benh (talk) 21:13, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

An example of some of the beacons that marked key sites in territory at the Cape claimed by the Dutch. Both are made of Robben Island slate and bear the coat-of-arms of the Netherlands (a lion with seven arrows representing the seven Dutch provinces). This beacon was found on the farm Ongegundefontein on the southern side of Olifants River mouth, near present-day Papendorp, and was donated to the South African Museum in 1893.

Motion blur in the girl’s right arm/hand, denoising/sharpening artifacts in her face. (Motion blur of the animal’s foot does not distract me since that is supposed to move.) Crop is a bit too tight. 1/125 s is quite a long exposuring time for moving objects.

The picture shows ~280° of the sky.Selimabner was so kind to add some constelations, stars and planets as annotations which I linked to the german and english article.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I haven't seen a lot of starry skies over here. It definitely has wow factor. I would have loved to know which setting you used to properly review, so I'm wondering if you couldn't have shortened exposition. ISO bumping perhaps? (I'm aware you probably went very high already). Contrary to many pictures on the web, you didn't seem to downscale a lot (if at all), but there might be some little more room for improving noise issue with careful NR. I think stars are good subjects for non too destructive NR. I'll end with composition, which I don't find very sophisticated, but this is just my opinion of course. - Benh (talk) 19:00, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Benh, thank you. The single pictures were taken at ISO3200 with f3.5 and 30sec exposure. So yes, there is allready ISO bumping and not much room for shorten the exposition. The high ISO and the open aperture are necessary to catch as much stars as possible at an "acceptable" exposure time. And, I think I have to disappoint you about the downsampling thing. ;-) Cause of the choosen settings I had to downsample a lot to get the actual quality. But with the now given resolution I have made a 120x40cm print were I´m pretty happy with the result, so I think it is a good compromise between size and quality.

Maybe I should get one of those softboxes that fit over the build in flash, that shouldn't take up much room in my small camera bag.

So is Van Gogh's Sunflowers. What exactly is the perspective issue here? It's 18mm on a f3.5 lens, pretty standard. Looks fine to me. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 08:59, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Take a look at the bottom of the columns at the left side - they look rather distorted. The columns are not fully straight in real but also not that converging as the photo implies (take a look on other photos in the same catgegory). But the main reason for my oppose is the massively blown red channel not the perspective. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:09, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Colors are definitely in vivid mode and may be overdone, I'm curious though what could I have possibly do better next time to make the columns more straight? Do you think that the lenses distorted the actual view? Pundit (talk) 09:12, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Have you used a tripod in combination with a leveler? Have you done any perspective corrections on the computer or is the photo "out of the cam"? --Tuxyso (talk) 11:24, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
I have Nikon Capture NX2 and it's default Distortion control of 10% has a barely noticeable effect on the image. The saturation isn't "massive". It's comfortably within 10% in NX2 I would say and a glance at the category confirms the image is not deceiving the viewer, the FP criterion. There's no such thing as the "right" image in photography (lesson 1) and I'm worried that criticism at this level might be alienating ordinary contributors with realtively unsophisticated equipment or resources. It's essentially elitist in my view, and while it has it may have place amongst established contributors of images on Commons, I do think we should be wary of discouraging new contributors. The image looks great. End of. And my comment about composition is quite right, as you can readily confirm looking through the category. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 14:06, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
No perspective corrections or tripod, I leaned the camera on one of the poles of stability. Pundit (talk) 11:55, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Colors are over saturated and when you tilt the lens you will gets perspective distortion. When it looks good, what's the problem? Seems like that perspective is the new noise to complain about. --Baykedevries (talk) 13:40, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

    • @Fotoriety: Thanks for the review. Regarding the foregound and surroundings in general I left some space around to allow the building to "breathe". For me the featureless foreground helps the main subject to stand out. Is it correct that you think it should have been cropped tighter? I am sorry you do not like the lightning. I really like it myself and how the sky and coads are partially reflected in the curved ceramic shields surrounding the building. Anyway, there are so many possibilities for taking photos of this building regarding the vantage point, time of day and weather conditions. It is almost like a chameleon to me. If you look at the other photos in Viborg power plant, are there any elements in the framing, light vantage point in some of the other shots which are worthwhile to explore further in your opinion? I live close by, so it is easy to take new shots at it. Or, are you just non-wowed by this building in general? --Slaunger (talk) 06:31, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment On a photograph of a mountain, I think it’s decent enough to give the mountain’s name along with the geocoding and point of view. What else do you expect?

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I was about to say the same. A wikilink in the nom or information page is always handy but my browser has a search box. There's a geocode link too.

      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Sure I can do a search, but I'm not going to. If you think a picture is feature worthy you can take the time to add a decent description.

        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Since I haven’t understood your point yet, let me ask once again: What do you expect? Or maybe point out some of the active nominations that do have descriptions after your liking (most don’t have any at all, just "c/u/n by $NAME", without you complaining, AFAIS). I really don’t know what you mean. The picture shows the Pennine Way climbing a mountain named Pen-y-ghent from its southern side. That’s what my description says, so IMHO it’s a proper description of the photograph. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 22:22, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
          • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with Baykedevries that often file descriptions (on the file page - it is those that matters) are inadequate as important information is often missing regarding the particular image, but this is not one of those cases. The file page is adequately categorized to e.g. Pen-y-ghent and Pennine Way and if you follow those links, there are interwiki links to articles in several different languages (after I have added them, that is, as they were initially missing). If the nominator were to copy that information to the file page (in how many languages?), it would just be maintenance of redundant information. It would contaminate, not add value. I do think though that it is generally a good idea if nominators check that main categories are adequately linked to wikipedia articles, such that the relevant information can be found fast and efficient. The interwiki links are often missing on Commons categories. --Slaunger (talk) 23:21, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I like it but I do prefer the original. Shot from a low angle with a u.w. lens I like to see some perspective distortion. Over correcting, like the second picture, looks unnatural to me. --Uberprutser (talk) 10:58, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As always, it is a pleasure to see your photography, which has the wow, but the technical flaws you point out yourself plus a quite noisy sky is too much of an issue for me. I would also appreciate a more faithful representation wrt processing (but I respect that you prefer it heavily processed). For me more a photo targeted at a 500px audience. --Slaunger (talk) 15:58, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Please don't correct the verticals, it really spoils it... my composition is on purpose : worm's view is dramatic, and the perspective lines lead your eye to the dramatic sky which enhances the effect even more. I was just trying to check how audience would react, as I'm on a "processing pictures" momentum. I'd like to point out that although it's heavily processed, the original picture already looked like that. HDR only help to brighten up the church (and again, I try to keep a natural look). I'll upload a pic for comparison if I think about it tonight (and I still have to fix the pont du gard picture as I promised). This is a recurring issue, but the noise (which is very small, but can be fixed) and overlapping issues won't be visible until scrutinized at 100%. Even large print would look nice. Similar FP candidates which were promoted before were all downsampled to 2mpix. - Benh (talk) 10:17, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
    • "Please don’t"? If you do not want your work to be edited and re-published by others, why do you publish it under a free license which explicitly allows to do so? I did not overwrite any of your work, I just issued an alternative. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 14:19, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
      • You're right. My comment was more in an FPC context and "please don't alter the nomination" would be a better statement. This is not en:FPC where you can apply this kind of fix, because it's for the sake of encyclopeadic value. If this photo is to be promoted, I would like it to be because people like it the way I meant it. I think commons FPC is more a ground for that. Sorry for any misunderstanding (I do realise my english doesn't help). - Benh (talk) 15:09, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Are you going for something that might grace the cover of a gothic novel? If so, it isn't nearly dramatic enough. Possibly a strong crop on just the church would help. The trees, wall, path and colour all have a taming effect. The sky isn't particularly foreboding. I agree completely with Benh on the vertical "correction". This isn't an architectural shot and one simply can't correct verticals on a picture taken this close without introducing a ridiculous stretching effect. In terms of sharpness/megapixels, I have recently discovered the wiki software lets you create links to images at any size. So one could suggest that the image be "reviewed for sharpness" at a given size, while still uploading/nominating a larger image if desired. For example, it looks sharp at 50% reduction (2.5MP). At 66% reduction (4.4MP) it looks ok. While those sizes would be underwhelming for an architectural nomination, they might be sufficient for an image with enough wow. -- Colin (talk) 12:05, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Agree with everything. Review size should be something automated, but this was discussed a lot already. You may be right for the framing affecting the effect. I've played a little with recroping and the results are interesting. Will think about it (but the picture doesn't seem to attract much interest anyways, so will be for myself :) ). - Benh (talk) 21:13, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I haven't seen a lot of starry skies over here. It definitely has wow factor. I would have loved to know which setting you used to properly review, so I'm wondering if you couldn't have shortened exposition. ISO bumping perhaps? (I'm aware you probably went very high already). Contrary to many pictures on the web, you didn't seem to downscale a lot (if at all), but there might be some little more room for improving noise issue with careful NR. I think stars are good subjects for non too destructive NR. I'll end with composition, which I don't find very sophisticated, but this is just my opinion of course. - Benh (talk) 19:00, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Benh, thank you. The single pictures were taken at ISO3200 with f3.5 and 30sec exposure. So yes, there is allready ISO bumping and not much room for shorten the exposition. The high ISO and the open aperture are necessary to catch as much stars as possible at an "acceptable" exposure time. And, I think I have to disappoint you about the downsampling thing. ;-) Cause of the choosen settings I had to downsample a lot to get the actual quality. But with the now given resolution I have made a 120x40cm print were I´m pretty happy with the result, so I think it is a good compromise between size and quality.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Nice but there’s a stitching / editing flaw between sagitta and aquila, showing doubled patterns of stars. Tried to squeeze a note in. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 11:47, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
  • @Kreuzschnabel: Thanks for the review. As Benh says in another nom: "...reviewers have sharp eyes." ;-) But yes, you're right, there are some double patterns in this area. I don't think it spoils the image that much, but I will try to fix this problem as soon as possible! Thanks again, --mathias K 03:47, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
