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”.

    • 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)

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.

Taiwanese Monk at the Salar of Uyuni
  • It indeed is peculiar! When I realized that it's not given to everyone to meet with a monk in the middle of the Salar, I thought that this coincidence was worth a photo and a good chat—he's a great guy! At the end, there isn't much to explain though—he was simply travelling like everyone else for a few weeks in order to see some nice places and to meet some of his fellows scattered in Latin America. Funningly he was given a tablet to document his travels and did that pretty well to the point of taking a snap every 5 minutes while being driven around the Salar. I hope this is not going against some special requirements for the featured category that I might have missed—since I saw other very similar photos being promoted as featured, I thought that I was good to go. Let me know if not and I'll remove it. -- Christopher Crouzet (talk) 20:46, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
  • You are certainly not breaking any FP rules subject-wise. Interesting story, and I like it because it challenges my prejudice views that a Taiwanese monk would probably stay in Taiwan, and if traveling, wear a more 'normal' outfit:) I think it would be worthwhile to add a shortened version of this story to the file page, such that other users who initially go Symbol wtf vote.svg WTF? (like me) can get some further insight. Did you ask for his consent to publish this work for commercial re-use? Concerning a vote, I need to think about it. My biggest concern is that I think an FP should tell its story by itself. On the other hand I like the 'surprise' aspect of this photo, which poke at my simple-minded 'view of the world'. And it makes me curious to learn more, which is good. --Slaunger (talk)
  • Fair enough! I'm glad that it triggers this kind of reaction. I've updated the description as requested but as for his consent, I don't have it. I'm unfortunately not very good with the legislation part of photography, but I thought having read somewhere on Wikimedia that release rights were not required as soon as a person was shot in a public place? Now, I can't recall where exactly I've read that for reference, nor if the Salar is a public place at all? If I'm wrong in thinking that, and in the case where I can't manage to contact him, what should I do? -- Christopher Crouzet (talk) 21:46, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
  • See Commons:Photographs of identifiable people - there are country-specific issues. The term "commercial use" is ambiguous. Nearly all images of identifiable people on Commons lack a "model release" that would permit using this image for "commercial" purposes i.e. advertising, but the image may still be used in a "commercial" publication, such as education or news. Ultimately, it is up the the re-user to determine their legal situation and the free licence needed for Commons is a separate issue from personality rights. The thing you need to worry about as a photographer/uploader is the the country-specific laws about taking/publishing photos of people with/without consent. -- Colin (talk) 22:04, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for those explanations—as expected, it doesn't sound simple :) In this case, I should look at Bolivia since the photo was taken there rather than Taiwan which is his nationality, right? In any case, none of those two countries are listed on your link so it's hard for me to tell without some investigations. That said, if I take the shortcut of checking Peru instead, it doesn't seem to be a good sign? Now, I'm quite "speechless" at this page... looking at the rules applied to France for example, I've got difficulties to imagine that more than 0.0001% of the photos on Facebook, Instagram, and most of the internet (Wikimedia too from what you said?), are being published with an explicit consent of the subject. Sounds like a complex case here? Anyways, if you think that it's easier to remove that photo, it's totally fine with me. -- Christopher Crouzet (talk) 22:26, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Unfortunately those pages aren't very helpful and tend to be compiled by folk playing amateur lawyer rather than looking at reality. And doesn't list Bolivia. You are right that the laws in some countries are technically so strict that very few images would be legal. Can you imagine a football or tennis match on TV where the crowd was all blurred out? And laws regarding "publication" seem to exist from a pre-internet age when your holiday snaps were in an album on a bookshelf. You might want to ask User:Poco a poco, who seems well travelled. Commons is unlikely to delete the image and any legal risk you face here is no different to your Flickr page. Your friendly monk clearly consented to having his photo taken by you and if he is using a tablet for photos, then he's probably got one of you on his Flickr page so you could safely assume he's aware the image might end up on the internet. I find it hard to imagine this Taiwanese monk using Bolivian law to sue you for taking a holiday photo and posting it on the internet. -- Colin (talk) 08:19, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

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)

    • Hehe, I think your comparison is misleading. The structure of shadow has much to do with light and can be controlled by the photographer due to intelligent flash light usage and shooting time. An insect on a plant is a natural component you usually find in the field. --Tuxyso (talk) 21:39, 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.

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.

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)

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Nice pic. Perhaps a little boring centered composition. Weird. When I look at the cliffs in the foreground they appear duplicated or motion blurred. In theory it could be because the vantage point was changing during the shot, while you were focusing on the tower, but I would be surprised if this happened with 1/1000 s exposure unless the helicopter was moving very fast? It could also just be because of the f/4.5 aperture and the associated low DOF. --Slaunger (talk) 12:15, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Slaunger: even a pro lens as the 24-70 has weakness. The border sharpness at long distances is the weakness here. DOF should not be a problem here, because of the distance to the object (at least 200 meters altitude above the sea, and some distance from the tower and the island). There is no downsampling and almost no crop here, normally you do not see 24mp aerial images. Here is a 3 mp version of the same photo, looks very sharp.--ArildV (talk) 13:43, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

The light is very good, and with a strong side light which add relief to the sculpture, there needs to be a shadow on the side. Digitaly removing the shadow will certainly not improve the image. Regards, Yann (talk) 04:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
      • I do not think digitaly removing the shadow is good. Before taking the photo there should have been a lamp placed at left giving light in the left part of the photo. I know that would probably not have been possible for the photograher (a museum visitor I guess). --Nobelpeopleuploader (talk) 15:24, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
        • No, because it would remove the shadow on the sculpture, which would ruin the idea. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:02, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

I agree that an afterwards removal of the shadow wouldn't improve the image; a shadow is not necessarily an evil, but this one is simply too harsh for me, which is hardly avoidable with an object placed so close to the background. --A.Savin 21:00, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

The Warrior on a Horse statue is one of the main symbols of the Skopje 2014 project and is located in the center of Macedonia Square in Skopje, capital of the Republic of Macedonia. Although it is not officially named for him, it is typically thought to depict Alexander the Great. The statue was sculpted by Valentina Stefanovska and completed on September 8, 2011 to commemorate 20 years of the independence of the Republic of Macedonia. The bronze sculpture is 14.5 m tall and it sits on a cylindrical column, which itself is 10 m in height. The column consists of three large ivory sections containing reliefs, each separated by a thinner bronze ring. Each section contains reliefs. The column stands in a fountain and at the base of the column there are 8 bronze soldiers, each 3 m tall and 8 bronze lions, each 2.5 m tall.

    I see your point but there was IMHO no better angle to photograph the monument. I have spent hours there and have uploaded multiple pictures. The sculpture is not lighted in the top, I cannot change that and for composition purposes it was important to achieve a certain symmetry in the fountain (with the lion in the middle). Furthermore from this angle there was the better composition in the background. Poco2 19:09, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Tarfaladalen
  • You can see Sweden's tallest mountain, and several famous glaciers (notably Storglaciären, which has the world's longest data record). The phenomenon on the left is just a normal consequence of the panoramic projection and the fact that you don't have a straight horizon. Another thing is that the valley increases in altitude from left to right in the panorama. The picture also gives a overview of the research station's location. Alexandar Vujadinovic (talk) 07:37, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • The picture may show interesting items, still it is not outstanding itself IMHO. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 11:40, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question I find it interesting, that it has a big contrast alternating very much between almost white and almost black. I am wondering if the contrast is a little too high? Does it really look so black and white? I seems some features are missing, especially in the dark areas, where I believe shadows could be highlighed more. The researh station buildings has very little colors. Are they really colorless or could the image simply use a little more saturation? --Slaunger (talk) 12:01, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • That's how the place looks like during summer - large albedo variation everywhere. Of course, if I did a vegetation-only shot, I would have used the Levels tool to tweak the photo, but doing something here would just create an unrealistic picture. If you want a closer look at the research station and the vegetation (the whole valley is above the tree line), see the Tarfala category that I made...

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Anonymous creator, historical Polish official treasury note from the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution, scan by Godot13 - uploaded by Godot13 - nominated by Maire -- Maire (talk) 10:53, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Polish "Bilet Skarbowy" (treasury note) - 5-zloty, dated 8 June 1794. This note is from the first issue of banknotes by the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and was authorized by Tadeusz Kościuszko. The file is already a FP at en-wiki and a part of a valued set here. To anticipate certain doubts - the cut-off top is actually a feature. As an anti-counterfeiting measure, in those times the top margin was cut off and kept together with the serial number of the note, so that by comparing them later to the rest of the note it could be determined if the note was genuine or not.

    • 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)

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.

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.

Taiwanese Monk at the Salar of Uyuni
  • It indeed is peculiar! When I realized that it's not given to everyone to meet with a monk in the middle of the Salar, I thought that this coincidence was worth a photo and a good chat—he's a great guy! At the end, there isn't much to explain though—he was simply travelling like everyone else for a few weeks in order to see some nice places and to meet some of his fellows scattered in Latin America. Funningly he was given a tablet to document his travels and did that pretty well to the point of taking a snap every 5 minutes while being driven around the Salar. I hope this is not going against some special requirements for the featured category that I might have missed—since I saw other very similar photos being promoted as featured, I thought that I was good to go. Let me know if not and I'll remove it. -- Christopher Crouzet (talk) 20:46, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
  • You are certainly not breaking any FP rules subject-wise. Interesting story, and I like it because it challenges my prejudice views that a Taiwanese monk would probably stay in Taiwan, and if traveling, wear a more 'normal' outfit:) I think it would be worthwhile to add a shortened version of this story to the file page, such that other users who initially go Symbol wtf vote.svg WTF? (like me) can get some further insight. Did you ask for his consent to publish this work for commercial re-use? Concerning a vote, I need to think about it. My biggest concern is that I think an FP should tell its story by itself. On the other hand I like the 'surprise' aspect of this photo, which poke at my simple-minded 'view of the world'. And it makes me curious to learn more, which is good. --Slaunger (talk)
  • Fair enough! I'm glad that it triggers this kind of reaction. I've updated the description as requested but as for his consent, I don't have it. I'm unfortunately not very good with the legislation part of photography, but I thought having read somewhere on Wikimedia that release rights were not required as soon as a person was shot in a public place? Now, I can't recall where exactly I've read that for reference, nor if the Salar is a public place at all? If I'm wrong in thinking that, and in the case where I can't manage to contact him, what should I do? -- Christopher Crouzet (talk) 21:46, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
  • See Commons:Photographs of identifiable people - there are country-specific issues. The term "commercial use" is ambiguous. Nearly all images of identifiable people on Commons lack a "model release" that would permit using this image for "commercial" purposes i.e. advertising, but the image may still be used in a "commercial" publication, such as education or news. Ultimately, it is up the the re-user to determine their legal situation and the free licence needed for Commons is a separate issue from personality rights. The thing you need to worry about as a photographer/uploader is the the country-specific laws about taking/publishing photos of people with/without consent. -- Colin (talk) 22:04, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for those explanations—as expected, it doesn't sound simple :) In this case, I should look at Bolivia since the photo was taken there rather than Taiwan which is his nationality, right? In any case, none of those two countries are listed on your link so it's hard for me to tell without some investigations. That said, if I take the shortcut of checking Peru instead, it doesn't seem to be a good sign? Now, I'm quite "speechless" at this page... looking at the rules applied to France for example, I've got difficulties to imagine that more than 0.0001% of the photos on Facebook, Instagram, and most of the internet (Wikimedia too from what you said?), are being published with an explicit consent of the subject. Sounds like a complex case here? Anyways, if you think that it's easier to remove that photo, it's totally fine with me. -- Christopher Crouzet (talk) 22:26, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Unfortunately those pages aren't very helpful and tend to be compiled by folk playing amateur lawyer rather than looking at reality. And doesn't list Bolivia. You are right that the laws in some countries are technically so strict that very few images would be legal. Can you imagine a football or tennis match on TV where the crowd was all blurred out? And laws regarding "publication" seem to exist from a pre-internet age when your holiday snaps were in an album on a bookshelf. You might want to ask User:Poco a poco, who seems well travelled. Commons is unlikely to delete the image and any legal risk you face here is no different to your Flickr page. Your friendly monk clearly consented to having his photo taken by you and if he is using a tablet for photos, then he's probably got one of you on his Flickr page so you could safely assume he's aware the image might end up on the internet. I find it hard to imagine this Taiwanese monk using Bolivian law to sue you for taking a holiday photo and posting it on the internet. -- Colin (talk) 08:19, 28 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)

    • Hehe, I think your comparison is misleading. The structure of shadow has much to do with light and can be controlled by the photographer due to intelligent flash light usage and shooting time. An insect on a plant is a natural component you usually find in the field. --Tuxyso (talk) 21:39, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

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)

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)

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Nice pic. Perhaps a little boring centered composition. Weird. When I look at the cliffs in the foreground they appear duplicated or motion blurred. In theory it could be because the vantage point was changing during the shot, while you were focusing on the tower, but I would be surprised if this happened with 1/1000 s exposure unless the helicopter was moving very fast? It could also just be because of the f/4.5 aperture and the associated low DOF. --Slaunger (talk) 12:15, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Slaunger: even a pro lens as the 24-70 has weakness. The border sharpness at long distances is the weakness here. DOF should not be a problem here, because of the distance to the object (at least 200 meters altitude above the sea, and some distance from the tower and the island). There is no downsampling and almost no crop here, normally you do not see 24mp aerial images. Here is a 3 mp version of the same photo, looks very sharp.--ArildV (talk) 13:43, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

    • Honestly, I don't think complaining about the shadow is appropriate here. The light is very good, and with a strong side light which add relief to the sculpture, there needs to be a shadow on the side. Digitaly removing the shadow will certainly not improve the image. Regards, Yann (talk) 04:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
      • I do not think digitaly removing the shadow is good. Before taking the photo there should have been a lamp placed at left giving light in the left part of the photo. I know that would probably not have been possible for the photograher (a museum visitor I guess). --Nobelpeopleuploader (talk) 15:24, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

I agree that an afterwards removal of the shadow wouldn't improve the image; a shadow is not necessarily an evil, but this one is simply too harsh for me, which is hardly avoidable with an object placed so close to the background. --A.Savin 21:00, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

The Warrior on a Horse statue is one of the main symbols of the Skopje 2014 project and is located in the center of Macedonia Square in Skopje, capital of the Republic of Macedonia. Although it is not officially named for him, it is typically thought to depict Alexander the Great. The statue was sculpted by Valentina Stefanovska and completed on September 8, 2011 to commemorate 20 years of the independence of the Republic of Macedonia. The bronze sculpture is 14.5 m tall and it sits on a cylindrical column, which itself is 10 m in height. The column consists of three large ivory sections containing reliefs, each separated by a thinner bronze ring. Each section contains reliefs. The column stands in a fountain and at the base of the column there are 8 bronze soldiers, each 3 m tall and 8 bronze lions, each 2.5 m tall.

    I see your point but there was IMHO no better angle to photograph the monument. I have spent hours there and have uploaded multiple pictures. The sculpture is not lighted in the top, I cannot change that and for composition purposes it was important to achieve a certain symmetry in the fountain (with the lion in the middle). Furthermore from this angle there was the better composition in the background. Poco2 19:09, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
