Featured picture candidates


FPCandiateicon.svg

Featured picture candidates are images that the community will vote on, to determine whether or not they will be highlighted as some of the finest on Commons. This page lists the candidates to become featured pictures. The picture of the day images are selected from featured pictures.

Old candidates for Featured pictures are listed here. There are also chronological lists of featured pictures: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and current month.

For another overview of our finest pictures, take a look at our annual picture of the year election.

Formal things[edit]

Nominating[edit]

Guidelines for nominators[edit]

Please read the complete guidelines before nominating.

This is a summary of what to look for when submitting and reviewing FP candidates:

  • Licensing - Images licensed with solely "GFDL" or "GFDL and an NC-only license" are not acceptable due the restrictions placed on re-use by these licenses.
  • ResolutionImages (with the exception of animations, videos, and SVGs) of lower resolution than 2 million pixels (pixels, not bytes) are typically rejected unless there are 'strong mitigating reasons'. Note that a 1600 × 1200 image has 1.92 Mpx, just less than the 2 million level. A 1920 × 1080 image, commonly known as Full HD, has 2.07 Mpx, just more than the 2 million level.
Graphics on Commons are not only viewed on conventional computer screens. They may be used in high-resolution print versions, and the images may be cropped to focus on portions of the image. See Commons:Why we need high resolution media for more information.
  • Scans – While not official policy, Help:Scanning provides advice on the preparation of various types of images that may be useful.
  • General quality – pictures being nominated should be of high technical quality.
  • Digital manipulations must not deceive the viewer. Digital manipulation for the purpose of correcting flaws in an image is generally acceptable, provided it is limited, well-done, and not intended to deceive.
    • For photographs, typical acceptable manipulations include cropping, perspective correction, sharpening/blurring, and colour/exposure correction. More extensive manipulations, such as removal of distracting background elements, should be clearly described in the image text, by means of the {{Retouched picture}} template. Undescribed or mis-described manipulations which cause the main subject to be misrepresented are never acceptable.
    • For historic images, acceptable manipulations might include digitally fixing rips, removal of stains, cleanup of dirt, and, for mass-produced artworks such as engravings, removal of flaws inherent to the particular reproduction, such as over-inking. Careful colour adjustments may be used to bring out the original work from the signs of ageing, though care should be taken to restore a natural appearance. The original artistic intent should be considered when deciding whether it is appropriate to make a change. Edits to historic material should be documented in detail within the file description, and an unedited version should be uploaded and cross linked for comparison.
  • Valueour main goal is to feature most valuable pictures from all others. Pictures should be in some way special, so please be aware that:
    • almost all sunsets are aesthetically pleasing, and most such pictures are not in essence different from others,
    • night-shots are pretty but normally more details can be shown on pictures taken at daytime,
    • beautiful does not always mean valuable.


Artworks, illustrations, and historical documents

There are many different types of non-photographic media, including engravings, watercolours, paintings, etchings, and various others. Hence, it is difficult to set hard-and-fast guidelines. However, generally speaking, works can be divided into three types: Those that can be scanned, those that must be photographed, and those specifically created to illustrate a subject.

Works that must be photographed include most paintings, sculptures, works too delicate or too unique to allow them to be put on a scanner, and so on. For these, the requirements for photography, below, may be mostly followed; however, it should be noted that photographs which cut off part of the original painting are generally not considered featurable.

Works that may be scanned include most works created by processes that allow for mass distribution. For instance, illustrations published with novels. For these, it is generally accepted that a certain amount of extra manipulation is permissible to remove flaws inherent to one copy of the work, since the particular copy – of which hundreds, or even thousands of copies also exist – is not so important as the work itself.

Works created to serve a purpose include diagrams, scientific illustrations, and demonstrations of contemporary artistic styles. For these, the main requirement is that they serve their purpose well.

Provided the reproduction is of high quality, an artwork generally only needs one of the following four things to be featurable:

  • Notable in its own right: Works by major artists, or works that are otherwise notable, such as the subjects of a controversy.
  • Of high artistic merit: Works which, while not particularly well known, are none the less wonderful examples of their particular type or school of art.
  • Of high historic merit: The historical method values very early illustrations of scenes and events over later ones. Hence, a work of poor quality depicting a contemporaneous historical event can be nonetheless important, even if the artistic merit is relatively low. Likewise, scans or photographs of important documents – which may not be at all artistic – nonetheless may be highly valuable if the documents are historically significant. The reason for the image's historical importance should be briefly stated in the nomination, for those reviewers unfamiliar with the subject.
  • Of high illustrative merit: Works that illustrate or help explain notable subjects, for instance, illustrations of books, scientific subjects, or technical processes. The amount of artistic merit required for these will vary by subject, but, for instance, an illustration that makes the working of a complicated piece of machinery very clear need not be notable as a piece of artwork as well, whereas an illustration for a book might well be expected to reach much higher artistic standards.

Digital restorations must also be well documented. An unedited version of the image should be uploaded locally, when possible, and cross-linked from the file hosting page. Edit notes should be specified in detail, such as "Rotated and cropped. Dirt, scratches, and stains removed. Histogram adjusted and colors balanced."

Photographs

On the technical side, we have focus, exposure, composition, movement control and depth of field.

  • Focus – every important object in the picture should normally be sharp.
  • Exposure refers to the shutter diaphragm combination that renders an image with a tonal curve that ideally is able to represent in acceptable detail shadows and highlights within the image. This is called latitude. Images can be on the low side of the tonal curve (low range), the middle (middle range) or high side (upper range). Digital cameras (or images) have a narrower latitude than film. Lack of shadow detail is not necessarily a negative characteristic. In fact, it can be part of the desired effect. Burned highlights in large areas are a distracting element.
  • Composition refers to the arrangement of the elements within the image. The "Rule of Thirds" is a good guideline for composition and is an inheritance from the painting school. The idea is to divide the image with two imaginary horizontal and two vertical lines, thus dividing the image into thirds horizontally and vertically. Centering the subject is often less interesting than placing the subject in one of the "interest points", the 4 intersection between these horizontal and vertical lines intersect. Horizons should almost never be placed in the middle, where they "cut" the image in half. The upper or lower horizontal line is often a good choice. The main idea is to use space to create a dynamic image.
    • Foreground and background – foreground and background objects may be distracting. You should check that something in front of the subject doesn't hide important elements and that something in background doesn't spoil the composition (for example that the streetlight doesn't "stand" on someone's head).
  • Movement control refers to the manner in which motion is represented in the image. Motion can be frozen or blurred. Neither one is better than the other. It is the intention of representation. Movement is relative within the objects of the image. For example, photographing a race car that appears frozen in relation to the background does not give us a sense of speed or motion, so technique dictates to represent the car in a frozen manner but with a blurred background, thus creating the sense of motion, this is called "panning". On the other hand, representing a basketball player in a high jump frozen in relation to everything else, due to the "unnatural" nature of the pose would be a good photograph.
  • Depth of field (DOF) refers to the area in focus in front of and beyond main subject. Depth of field is chosen according to the specific needs of every picture. Large or small DOF can either way add or subtract to the quality of the image. Low depth of field can be used to bring attention to the main subject, separating it from the general environment. High depth of field can be used to emphasize space. Short focal length lenses (wide angles) yield large DOF, and vice versa, long focal lenses (telephotos) have shallow DOF. Small apertures yield large DOF and conversely, large apertures yield shallow DOF.

On the graphic elements we have shape, volume, colour, texture, perspective, balance, proportion, noise, etc.

  • Shape refers to the contour of the main subjects.
  • Volume refers to the three dimensional quality of the object. This is accomplished using side light. Contrary to general belief, front lighting is not the best light. It tends to flatten subject. Best light of day is early morning or late afternoon.
  • Colour is important. Over saturated colours are not good.
  • Texture refers to the quality of the surface of the subject. It is enhanced by side lighting… it is the "feel" to the touch.
  • Perspective refers to the "angle" accompanied by lines that disappear into a vanishing point that may or may not be inside the image.
  • Balance refers to the arrangement of subjects within the image that can either give equal weight or appear to be heavier on one side.
  • Proportion refers to the relation of size of objects in picture. Generally, we tend to represent small objects small in relation to others, but a good technique is to represent small objects large contrary to natural size relationship. For example, a small flower is given preponderance over a large mountain…. This is called inversion of scales.
Not all elements must be present. Some photographs can be judged on individual characteristics, that is, an image can be about color or texture, or colour AND texture, etc.
  • Noise refers to unwanted corruption of colour brightness and quality and can be caused by underexposure. It is not a desirable quality and can be grounds for opposition.
  • Symbolic meaning or relevance … Opinion wars can begin here … A bad picture of a very difficult subject is a better picture than a good picture of an ordinary subject. A good picture of a difficult subject is an extraordinary photograph.
Images can be culturally biased by the photographer and/or the observer. The meaning of the image should be judged according to the cultural context of the image, not by the cultural context of the observer. An image "speaks" to people, and it has the capacity to evoke emotion such as tenderness, rage, rejection, happiness, sadness, etc. Good photographs are not limited to evoking pleasant sensations …

You will maximise the chances of your nominations succeeding if you read the complete guidelines before nominating.

Video and audio

Set nominations

Sets are temporarily disallowed for technical reasons; will reopen soon.

If a group of images are thematically connected in a direct and obvious way, they can be nominated together as a set.

  • All images should be processed and presented in a similar manner to ensure consistency amongst the set.
  • All images should be linked to all others in the "Other Versions" section of the image summary.
  • If the set of subjects has a limited number of elements, then there should be a complete set of images. This may result in images in this kind of set with no "wow" factor, and perhaps little value on their own. Their value is closely bound to the value of having a complete set of these subjects. The decision to feature should be based on this overall value.
  • If the set of subjects is unlimited, the images should be chosen judiciously. Each image should be sufficiently different to the others to add a great deal of value to the overall set. The majority of images should be able to qualify for FP on their own.
  • All images should be of high technical quality.

Adding a new nomination[edit]

If you believe that you have found or created an image that could be considered valuable, with appropriate image description and licensing, then do the following.

Step 1: copy the image name into this box, after the text already present in the box, for example, Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Your image filename.jpg. Then click on the "create new nomination" button.

All single files:

For renominations, simply add /2 after the filename. For example, Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Foo.jpg/2


Set nominations ONLY

Sets are temporarily disallowed for technical reasons; will reopen soon.

Step 2: follow the instructions on the page that you are taken to, and save that page.

Step 3: manually insert a link to the created page at the top of Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list: Click here, and add the following line to the TOP of the nominations list:

{{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Your image filename.jpg}}

Optional: if you are not the creator of the image, please notify him/her using {{subst:FPC-notice}}.

Voting[edit]

Editors whose accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. Everybody can vote for his/her own nominations. Anonymous (IP) votes are not allowed.

You may use following templates:

  • {{Support}} (Symbol support vote.svg Support),
  • {{Oppose}} (Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose),
  • {{Neutral}} (Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral),
  • {{Comment}} (Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment),
  • {{Info}} (Pictogram voting info.svg Info),
  • {{Question}} (Pictogram voting question.svg Question),
  • {{Request}} (Pictogram voting question-blue.svg Request).

You may indicate that the image has no chance of success with the template {{FPX|reason - ~~~~}}, where reason explains why the image is clearly unacceptable as a FP. The template can only be used when there are no support votes other than the one from the nominator.

A well-written review helps participants (photographers, nominators and reviewers) improve their skills by providing insight into the strengths and weaknesses of a picture. Explain your reasoning, especially when opposing a candidate (which has been carefully selected by the author/nominator). English is the most widely understood language on Commons, but any language may be used in your review. A helpful review will often reference one or more of the criteria listed above.

Unhelpful reasons for opposing include:

  • No reason
  • "I don't like it" and other empty assessments
  • "You can do better" and other criticisms of the author/nominator rather than the image

Remember also to put your signature (~~~~).

Featured picture delisting candidates[edit]

Over time, featured picture standards change. It may be decided that for some pictures which were formerly "good enough", this is no longer the case. This is for listing an image which you believe no longer deserves to be a featured picture. For these, vote:

Text to use Displays as Meaning
{{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep It deserves to remain a featured picture
{{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist It does not deserve to be a featured picture anymore.

This can also be used for cases in which a previous version of an image was promoted to FP, but a newer version of the image has been made and is believed to be superior to the old version, e.g. a newly edited version of a photo or a new scan of a historical image. In particular, it is not intended for replacing older photos of a particular subject with newer photos of the same subject, or in any other case where the current FP and the proposed replacement are essentially different images. For these nominations, vote:

Text to use Displays as Meaning
{{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep Do not replace the old image with the new image as an FP.
{{Delistandreplace}} Symbol redirect vote.svg Delist and replace Replace the current FP with the proposed replacement.

If you believe that some picture no longer meets the criteria for FP, you can nominate it for delisting, copying the image name into this box, after the text already present in the box:


In the new delisting nomination page just created you should include:

  • Information on the origin of the image (creator, uploader);
  • A link to the original FP nomination (it will appear under "Links" on the image description page);
  • Your reasons for nominating the image and your username.

After that, you have to manually insert a link to the created page at the top of Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list.

As a courtesy, leave an informative note on the talk page(s) of the original creator, uploader(s), and nominator with a link to the delisting candidate. {{subst:FPC-notice-removal}} can be used for this purpose.

Featured picture candidate policy[edit]

General rules[edit]

  1. The voting period is 9 complete days counted from the nomination. After the end of this period the result will be determined. Votes added on day 10 and after are not counted.
  2. Nominations by anonymous contributors are welcome
  3. Contributions to discussion by anonymous contributors are welcome
  4. Only registered contributors whose Commons accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. Exception: registered users can always vote in their own nominations no matter the account age and number of edits.
  5. Nominations do not count as votes. Support must be explicitly stated.
  6. Nominators and authors can withdraw their nominated pictures at any time. This is done by adding the following template: {{withdraw}} ~~~~
  7. Remember, the goal of the Wikimedia Commons project is to provide a central repository for free images to be used by all Wikimedia projects, including possible future projects. This is not simply a repository for Wikipedia images, so images should not be judged here on their suitability for that project.
  8. Rules of the 5th day based on vote counts on day number 5 (day of nomination + 5)
    1. Pictures are speedy declined if they have no support (apart from the nominator).
    2. Pictures are speedy promoted if they have 10 support votes or more and no oppose votes. (Note that if it takes more than five days to reach this threshold, the picture can be promoted as soon as it is reached.)
    3. Once either speedy criterion is reached, the voting period is considered closed, and no more votes may be added.
  9. Pictures tagged {{FPX}} may be removed from the list 24 hours after the tag was applied, provided there are no support votes other than that of the nominator.
  10. Pictures tagged {{FPD}} (FP-Denied) may be removed from the list 24 hours after the tag was applied.
  11. Only two active nominations by the same user (that is, nominations under review and not yet closed) are allowed. The main purpose of this measure is to contribute to a better average quality of nominations, by driving nominators/creators to choose carefully the pictures presented to the forum.

Featuring and delisting rules[edit]

A candidate will become a featured picture in compliance with following conditions:

  1. Appropriate license (of course)
  2. At least 7 supporting votes
  3. Ratio of supporting/opposing votes at least 2/1 (a two-thirds majority); same for delist/keep votes
  4. Two different versions of the same picture cannot both be featured, but only the one with higher level of support, as determined by the closer. Whenever the closer is not sure which version has consensus to be featured, he/she should attempt to contact the voters to clarify their opinions if not clear from the nomination page.

The delisting rules are the same as those for FPs, with voting taking place over the same time period. The rule of the 5th day is applied to delisting candidates that have received no votes to delist, other than that of the proposer, by day 5. There is also a limit of two active delisting nominations per user, which is in addition to the limit of two active regular nominations.

The FPCBot handles the vote counting and closing in most cases, current exceptions are candidates containing multiple versions of the image as well as FPXed and withdrawn nominations. Any experienced user may close the requests not handled by the bot. For instructions on how to close nominations, see Commons:Featured picture candidates/What to do after voting is finished. Also note that there is a manual review stage between the bot has counted the votes and before they are finally closed by the bot, this manual review can be done by any user that are familiar with the voting rules.

Above all, be polite[edit]

Please don't forget that the image you are judging is somebody's work. Avoid using phrases like "it looks terrible" and "I hate it". If you must oppose, please do so with consideration. Also remember that your command of English might not be the same as someone else's. Choose your words with care.

Happy judging… and remember... all rules can be broken.

Table of contents[edit]

List may contain works considered Not Safe for Work (nudity).

Nominators are requested, out of courtesy, to include the {{nsfw}} template with such images. Users may select the gadget in user preferences "Deferred display of images tagged with {{nsfw}} on COM:FPC" to enable the template's effect of hiding the image until selected.

Route of Prince Maximilian of Wied in the interior of North America 1832-1834

The map shows the northern states of the United States of America in 1832. At that time the rivers of the Mississippi and the Missouri formed the border between the east settled area of the Americans and the western area of the Indians. The areas of the different Indian tribes and the villages and towns of Americans are inscribed on the map. An orange line indicates the northern boundary of America. The red lines from Boston to the upper Missouri and back to New York marked the history of the Expedition of the scientist Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied and the painter Karl Bodmer in the years 1832-1834.

Damit: "So the front looks bright and reddish-yellowish in sunny days." wiedersprichst Du Dir nun selbst. Ein "sunny Day" liefert nun mal kein neutrales Licht. Außerdem sagte ich auf de:KEB: "im Vergleich zu Deinen anderen Bildern des Basler Münsters, sieht das Bild hier eben zu "gelbstichig" aus. Das ist auch nun mal ein Fakt.

Sicherlich liefert Sonnenlicht kein neutrales Licht, aber neutrales Licht ist ja auch eine Utopie in der Natur. Wenn du nun behauptest, das Bild sei gelbstichig dann impliziert das einen falsch gewählten Weißabgleich oder eine fehlerhafte Farbnachbearbeitung, die nicht stattgefunden hat. Da du nicht vor Ort warst und ich schon erlaube ich mir das richtig zu stellen, was deine Aussage unterschwellig vorwirft: dass hier Farben verfälscht dargestellt würden.

@Slaunger: First thing,thanks for review.The idea of the composition is ... take a picture of a church, I don't know what else I should invent.All the Catholic churches prior to 1963 have the altar inside and out, as decided by the Second Vatican Council. Then comparison with the other requested as long as you have found, this is the church of the Spaniards in Italy, where he is buried alfonso XIII and Pope Alexander VI.You should not make the picture comparison between the churches in my opinion, everyone has their own characteristics.Regards. --LivioAndronico talk 21:21, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
I think you misunderstand regarding the alter. It is as if you are undecided if you want the whole alter in the image or not in the image. It is as if you have not made a conscious decision where the picture shall begin and where it shall end. -- Slaunger (talk) 21:27, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm not suggesting that every image like this should be a panoramic stitched image with HDR, but it is exactly this issue that makes it so flexible and why I usually use this technique (along with many other good technical reasons). A much wider area can be captured and you can decide later if you prefer a different composition. You are not limited by the field of view of the lens. Diliff (talk) 17:50, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment To get more of them into focus, I would have had to stop down beyond f/8, which certainly would have impaired the sharpness due to diffraction – or take an entire series for focus stacking.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very nice specimen in good light in its natural environment. Sharpness is fine given the resolution. I do think the aperture could have been stopped down to e.g. f/11 to achieve a better overall compromise between DOF and diffraction blur, but for me DOF is sufficient. It adds a little of bokeh to it and helps the main subject stand out better from the background. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:48, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Unlike Wilfredor, I wasn't disappointed by the quality at full size -- one can't expect razor sharpness at those kinds of distances. Downsized 75% to 14MP it is sharp. I think at Commons we can see educational value in daylight lighting. While commercial landscape photographers know that sunrise/sunset are special times for postcards and coffee table books, there is merit in seeing such a landscape as it is, rather than tinted by an orange sky or covered in snow. One niggle is that I don't think you've quite succeed in getting enough near foreground for that to work well (it just looks arbitrarily cropped). Consider a 3:1 ratio aspect of the top portion to concentrate on just the view rather than what is near one's feet. That crop has the benefit of the horizon aligning with the rule-of-thirds, for what that is worth. -- Colin (talk) 10:43, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for the support, Colin. The purpose of the near crop is to show the way up to the peak through the gravel and that the pic is not taken from a plane.

      • Thank you for your suggestions, I´am really thankfully about it! The f/1.4 50mm may have been the better choice, not the 70-200. It was extremely difficult, I just had 50cm space to handle this, I did´nt even had space to look through the viewfinder or monitor. This shall not be an excuse, it just was a unique opportunity for me. I had no chance to make a 2nd row. Not with this pano-head. --Hubertl (talk) 13:43, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
        • No problem. I took a very similar panorama in Riga last month using two rows and a 50mm lens, so I'm familiar with panoramas such as this. You shouldn't need to use a panoramic head in this instance though, because parallax errors would be minimal as the buildings are very far away. In fact, I took my panorama hand-held. Not only that, because the bell tower in the church is hexagonal (or maybe octagonal, I forget), I took different photos from different locations inside the bell tower. As the camera direction rotated around 360 degrees, I actually moved my location inside the tower to suit this (mostly so that when looking down, I would not see the edge of the tower in the frame). I would guess that the camera location rotated around a 3-4 metre diameter, and still there are no significant parallax errors. So I think it would have been better to shoot this image hand-held, and then you could more easily shoot a second row. Diliff (talk) 14:36, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

I mean the darkest parts of the both wings are just over the dark area of the background (half top of the image), and that don't help for to highlight the butterfly, that's even increase the contrast between the half bottom and the half top, it's the first thing I think when I look at the image : dark half top + clear half bottom = a bit unbalenced (IMO). In macro the backgrounds are very important for compositions, and it's very hard but necessary to think at what will be the background in the final result. This image is nice and well done IMO, but here we agree that we speak about outstanding images. I hope to have been a little more precise. :)-- Christian Ferrer Talk / Images 14:59, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Macro Portrait of a tiny Comensal Shrimp, just a few cm long. It is a subespecies called Sarasvati Comensal Shrimp (Periclimenes sarasvati). I like this image particularly, due to two reasons: the great contrast of colours between the beige anemone tentacles and the purple shrimp... and the good depth of field, that shows great detail, particularly through the shrimp's translucent body. Also, it is an uncommon species of shrimp, but I am not sure whether or not documental value is a factor taken into account for FPCs.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. For me, the wow is in the amazing stucco relief details. Actually, this is part of a series of images taken in this church (others are visible from the image page). The other images also offer interesting views that cannot easily be captured in a single image. However, I think this image is the most representative view of the church and is therefore the one I nominated. Another thing to note is that this is the most time consuming panorama I've ever taken. It was extremely crowded inside and it took about 45 minutes of waiting for the church to become empty enough to complete the panorama. It looks so peaceful and serene in this image, but the truth is, it was more like this. ;-) Diliff (talk) 23:59, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

    • Well, it's an HDR image so it is impossible to say that nothing has been done to the contrast because by definition, contrast adjustment is something that is intrinsic to HDR processing. However, I don't think it looks abnormal. I guess you could say that the micro contrast is higher than the original images, but the actual contrast is lower (hence it is possible to turn a high dynamic range into a lower dynamic range JPG).

    • Ahh, well spotted. My first thought was that it must be an illusion but you're right, they are bending slightly. As I've taken so many photos in Lithuania, I assumed it was pure rectilinear (as virtually all my interiors are). However, I do sometimes apply a small amount of vertical (and/or horizontal) compression, which seeks to minimise the rectilinear distortion at the edges of the frame. This has the side effect of the perspective lines bending slightly as the compression is progressively applied. I'm happy to update the image description to explain this slight curve of the lines.

From experience, I know I can't go any wider because the distortion becomes too prevalent (the horizontal FOV is about 110 degrees). If I moved further back, I could have captured the entirety of the cross, but then the balcony bannisters would obscure the ground level of the church. Diliff (talk) 12:01, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

The histogram shows no brightness and can be adjusted without losing too much of the softness in the image. Cropping the sky to 1/3 the image might help. I tried those adjustments on a local copy and boosted the saturation slightly, too, and I liked the result even better. though you might like it as it is. I disagree with ArionEstar – I like the flats and boats, too. A small crop of the foreground might help, however. It definitely needs a fuller description, and geo-location would be nice to see. --Kbh3rdtalk 19:45, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Sorry Kbh3rd if I expressed myself badly. When I said "wow", I meant that when I look at the picture, first I get impressed with the dune. This region here where I live, although in Brazil, the country where the photo was taken, does not have these dunes, which leaves me impressed. I think the sky, during the sunset, also impresses me.

Västerås

Compared to some recent FP candidates here, I think the images has slightly softer contrast and warmer light. I think the result is very realistic for this church. The part closest to the camera is affected by brick walls and stained-glass windows.

Backlit keyboard
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Colin - uploaded by Colin - nominated by Colin. A backlit laptop computer keyboard. Most fingers are on the "home" keys for touch-typing; the 'U' key is being pressed. Typing on a keyboard is a classic stock photograph, with endless illustrative uses.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The right hand has motion blur, I believe it should be resampled. The model has the phalanges of the toes short, would be nicer if they were long (is more harmonic). The composition of the keyboard looks tighrt, borderless, I believe that a larger space would benefit the photo. I make these comments because it seems easy to retake the photo that has good use (IMO). -- Lauro Sirgadocontribs 14:06, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
    • Thanks for your review. You are right there is a slight movement in the right hand because the exposure was long (30s). The only light is from the backlight, which is dim and I wanted enough DoF to get the fingers reasonably in focus. I took quite a number of attempts but none absolutely perfect when viewed 100%. I wanted a tight crop on the hands and essential keys, but there are other valid crops for sure. As for the model, well he's me and that's what my fingers look like when typing when viewed directly from above. Viewed from normal sitting position, the ends of my fingers aren't really visible at all, and when I reach to press 'U' the other fingers in my hand curve back. My wife has small slender hands, and while it may be nice to spend an hour in the dark with some young model with long elegant fingers, I'm not going to get approval for that :-). I took this last December for the photo challenge. It took me a while to clean the keyboard and a while after with the spot removal tool in Lightroom to get rid of the worst of what was still there. Plus colour and tone adjustments. In short, it wouldn't just take 5min to repeat and I'd have no guarantee of improvement. -- Colin (talk) 20:05, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
      • I appreciate the feedback, and yes you're right, the composition is very personal and intuitive. I liked the overall look of the photo, thank you again : ) -- Lauro Sirgadocontribs 23:29, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I've looked for several times at this photo. It's technically without flaws but I do not really like the light and composition. The light is quite harsh, you have relatively strong shadows probably due to midday sun. To the composition: We have surely some eye-catchig elements: the house at the front right (too tightly cropped) and the rocks in the background with their top lines going through the top part of the image. But I am missing something similiar at the left foreground part of the image - there are no clear lines, nothing the eye can resist on. Surely you can see some interesting details in full res but the canyon does not come out well there. --Tuxyso (talk) 10:48, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

  • What's the subject of this image?
    • The 2 left lines leads our eyes to the lighthouse.
    • In the right we have a strange metal bring more distraction. And lines going to nowhere creating more distraction, and leading our eyes again away from the main subject.
    • Why this huge empty space at the left? And a lot of no important things at the bottom, even the reflection is not great, water is moving, not clear reflection...
  • Is not sharp, as Wladyslaw said, not even the bridge is sharp, let alone the buildings...
  • We have a lost of information in the main building, so overexposure that we have a pure white in practically 25% of the edification...
  • For me a crop could be better as this: File:2014-09-29 - Reichsbrücke-DC-SunkenCity-Editar.jpg.
  • And if you had wait a little more to took this picture you would had this light: File:DC Tower 1 September 2013.png or better.
  • So, sorry, but no. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 22:14, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Why so emotional? Have you ever been in this part of Vienna? This one is a "before"-picture. But thank you, I can accept your opinion and I´am sorry, that I cannot meet your expectations with this very personal idea. --Hubertl (talk) 22:44, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
  • I left a note on this picture, where you can realize, how it was before and my position two weeks ago. --Hubertl (talk) 22:58, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi, Hubertl, I'm not here to offend you, or throw your work away.
  • I'm just attacking the technical points to improve your photos, not saying anything about the historical importance of that.
  • If the lighthouse is important put it in focus, if the tower is the main thing, toward the lines to the build, move around to find this lines, to eliminate distractions. If the grass is important, lay down, put it in the first layer, and the skyline in the background (something like: File:Field of sunflowers (4883070812).jpg, this is not a great pic, but the idea is there).
  • You can try a long exposure with a 1.8 (or more) ND filter, to have a more soft water, and not overexposure spots, or try in a more cloudy day or in the gold hour.
  • See the cropped image, and the other image that a linked, if you lives close, or there, you could go there, do a better shot, and bring us again.
  • This is just tips to sole problems that I bring, but it's up to you. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 23:21, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
  • I really appreciate your efforts and your useful advices, but dont worry about me, this time it was a panorama picture, the next time it will be just another motive. If I'd want to do a image as you cropped it, I would have done it. But I wanted to do something different. As Taxiarchos wrote, the Uno-City has a wide range of motives and I live very close. Next time it might be winter, no flicker of the air, all razor sharp. Do not take this selection too seriously, it is not a competition. The results are now this way and another time for sure completely different. If I'd want to do, how you cropped it as a completely new picture, I would have done it by myself. But I just wanted to do something slightly different. I hope, you can accept it. --Hubertl (talk) 00:09, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Closing a featured picture promotion request[edit]

The bot[edit]

Note that the description below is for manual closure, this is mostly not needed anymore as there exists a bot (FPCBot) that counts the votes and handles the process below. However after the bot has counted the votes a manual review step is used to make sure the count is correct before the bot again picks up the work.

Manual procedure[edit]

Any experienced user may close requests.

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    Add the result of the voting at the bottom (on a new line with a space first)
    {{FPC-results-reviewed|support=x|oppose=x|neutral=x|featured=("yes" or "no")|category=xxx (leave blank if "featured=no")|sig=~~~~}}
    (for example see Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:The Bridge (August 2013).jpg)
  2. Also edit the title of the candidate image template and add after the image tag
    featured or not featured
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] ===
    becomes
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], featured ===
  3. Save your edit.
  4. If it is featured:
    • Add the picture to the list of the four most recently featured pictures of an appropriate category of Commons:Featured pictures, list as the first one and delete the last one, so that the number is four again.
    • Also add the picture to an appropriate subpage of Commons:Featured pictures, list. Click on the most appropriate link beneath where you just added it as one of the four images.
    • Add the template {{Featured picture}} or {{Assessments|featured=1}} to the image description page.
      • If it was an alternative image, use the subpage/com-nom parameter: For example, if File:Foo.jpg was promoted at Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Bar.jpg, use {{Assessments|featured=1|com-nom=Bar.jpg}}
      • If the image is already featured on another wikipedia, just add featured=1 to the Assessements template. For instance {{Assessments|enwiki=1}} becomes {{Assessments|enwiki=1|featured=1}}
    • Add the picture to the chronological list of featured pictures. Put it in the gallery using this format: File:xxxxx.jpg|# - '''Headline'''<br>created by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]], uploaded by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]], nominated by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]]
      • The # should be replaced by 1 for the first image nominated that month, and counts up after that. Have a look at the other noms on that page for examples.
      • You may simplify this if multiple things were done by the same user. E.g.: File:xxxxx.jpg|# - '''Headline'''<br>created, uploaded, and nominated by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]]
    • Add == FP promotion ==

{{FPpromotion|File:XXXXX.jpg}} to the Talk Page of the nominator.

  1. As the last step (whether the image is featured or not), open Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list, click on [edit], and find the transclusion of the nomination you've just finished closing. It will be of the form:
    {{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:XXXXX.jpg}}
    Copy it to the bottom of Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/October 2014), save that page, and remove it from the candidate list.

Closing a delisting request[edit]

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    Add the result of the voting at the bottom (on a new line with a space first)
    '''Result:''' x delist, x keep, x neutral => /not/ delisted. ~~~~
    (for example see Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal/Image:Astrolabe-Persian-18C.jpg)
  2. Also edit the title of the delisting candidate image template and add after the image tag
    delisted or not delisted
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] === becomes === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], delisted ===
  3. Move the actual template from Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list to the bottom of the actual month page on Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/October 2014.
  4. If the outcome was not delisted, stop here. If it is delisted:
    1. Remove the picture from Commons:Featured pictures, list and any subpages.
    2. Replace the template {{Featured picture}} on the image description page by {{Delisted picture}}. If using the {{Assessments}} template, change featured=1 to featured=2 (do not change anything related to its status in other featured picture processes). Also, remove the image from all categories like Featured pictures of ....
    3. Add a delisting-comment to the original entry in chronological list of featured pictures in bold-face, e. g. delisted 2007-07-19 (1-6) with (1-6) meaning 1 keep and 6 delist votes (change as appropriate). The picture in the gallery is not removed.
