  • Comment I'd like to get information about the wasp's environment. What are the grey, white and red objects? Roger McLassus 17:41, 18 March 2006 (UTC)
The red substance is strawberry jam / jelly according to the homepage of the photographer. I suppose the white area is no object but over-exposed sky. 62.47.150.232 18:51, 18 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Since strawberry jam is not the natural food of wasps, there is a good reason to believe that the grey environment is something artificial too, which diminishes the value of the picture considerably. That no description of this environment is given with the picture is another point to its disadvantage. In connection with the low resolution, the apparently overexposed sky and the hidden rear part of the wasp's abdomen I can't help opposing the picture. Roger McLassus 10:29, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist if it wasn't properly featured in the first place it shouldn't have to go through a formal delisting either... --Dschwen 06:40, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Comment. This image was the first featured picture ever on this project. It received its featured status before a formal nomination process was put in place, at a time when the Commons was relatively new. Now that we have many excellent pictures, the bar has been raised and a review is appropriate. However, if the main concern is that it was "featured without discussion", perhaps someone should ask Aurevilly how FP nominations worked in the first two months of this project. He is the administrator who put it on Commons:Featured pictures in the first place. Has anyone bothered to find out where the FPC discussions took place at that time? This is not entirely obvious for anything featured before March 2005; see this discussion for further background. And why should there be a double standard? ("Furthermore I apply stricter criteria for pictures once listed without discussion.") Either something meets our explicit and implicit criteria for FP status, or it doesn't. --MarkSweep 19:12, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Well, this picture obviously does not. But as for the other pictures that were once featured without a formal (and archived) voting, I think we should start a discussion on the appropriate page. Roger McLassus 06:44, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep - Low resolution - yes - but what was the technology when it was listed. In 2-3 years pictures we feature now will have low resolution, do we use this as part of our consideration now? Historically to commons this image is more significant then any we vote on now, there will only ever be one 1st featured picture, no matter where technology takes pictures this is where we started. Gnangarra 10:13, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
    • Delisted pictures don't just disappear. They simply change their status from "featured picture" to "formerly featured picture" and will hold the latter forever. They are only removed from the actual FP-list but stay in the chronological list with the comment "delisted". As soon as this one gets delistet (which is very likely to happen) I'll create a template {{Formerly featured picture}} and insert it instead of the template {{Featured picture}} in the image-page. Roger McLassus 16:56, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
    • that's the whole point of delisting. Quote from above: "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." -- Gorgo 17:29, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose what is the point of making commercial photo FPC Gnangarra 01:25, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
    • The point of featuring pictures is not only to encourage wikipedians to create (and upload) good pictures, but also to find them (and upload them, if they are public domain). But since most wikipedians cannot privately afford a professional photographic equipment, I suggest we should have two categories of featured pictures: A (for private ones) and B (for public ones). Roger McLassus 09:35, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
      • I thought the point of featuring pictures was to mark and show the greatest pictures on commons, and not directly approve or encourage photographers, am I wrong?... Minto 20:40, 21 March 2006 (UTC)
        • I guess so. Without any featuring the "greatest pictures on commons" would be just as great. But featuring is a method of increasing their number by encouraging people to create and find new excellent pictures. Roger McLassus 10:40, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Even though I am not in to insect pictures, I like it. I love the shallow depth of field and good bokeh. The subject is well separated from the background and when viewed in full size, the picture is razor sharp. You can even see nice details like spider's web on the plants. Perhaps a tighter crop could make it better, when viewed at computer monitor, however. Yes. The composition could be better, but it is a good picture nonetheless. --Thermos 16:26, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The author has submitted a lot of other excellent pictures, but this even is not good. The main subject needs a lot more of space for its motion, the space that's below should be on top, and the one that's on the left should be on the right, or in other words: the subject should be lower and more to the left. Composition is really bad. Francisco M. Marzoa 13:51, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
I made this image to illustrate a flower article for this species, so the main subject is the blossom and not the fly. If you mainly see this image as an insect image, then its bad indeed. But believe me, I never would have uploaded it then. The fly is just there to decorate the flower. But of course, your mileage may vary. I'm just a little bit disappointed if you say "the composition is really bad" only because it's not the composition you'd like to see. -- aka 14:11, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
Even if the main subject is the flower, quality and DoF is excellent, BUT I still think that composition is bad with that fly there, because the fly seems to be the main subject for those who look at without further explanation. Do not be dissappointed. Your photo gallery is one of the bests that I've seen here (and may be that I'm wrong with this also, indeed). Francisco M. Marzoa 19:03, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - I like the water colour intensity did you adjust the colour?, the issue is the exposure across the body of the subject it needs more contrast to show the features. Also I would like to see more of the reflection it looks like the legs have been cut off.
    The color is slightly enhanced. Contrast on that day was a bit of a problem. If you zoom in all the way you can see the feathers. This bird is very white. The legs are in the frame. They are just under water. Miskatonic 17:26, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

description
  • Nomination --68.216.187.39 19:00, 1 April 2006 (UTC) (nomination fixed by Thryduulf)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. This was taken at the same time as Image:View of loch lomond.JPG, which is also currently a featured picture candidate (the metadata shows they were taken within the same minute), but the composition is significantly poorer. The tree dominates the foreground and distracts from the loch - in the other picture it is off to the side and is nowehere near as prominent; the water on the lake is also washed out on this image which is not on the other. This feels like exactly the sort of photograph I take as part of a panorama - the centre of the composition is on the right edge. I would have a go at stitching them myself but the overlap is too great and the colours too different for my software to cope with. If this is your photograph then a tip for the future when making panoramas like this is to take the photos in manual mode so they have the same aperture and exposure time etc. Also the ideal overlap is no more than about 1/3rd of width of the frame. Other than that keep trying - some work some don't, and even when they don't sometimes one of the individual frames is a great picture in its own right. Thryduulf 20:51, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

    I am aware that the cliff on the left might be a bit dark, but I have not edited the picture, in order to keep it as authentic as possible. I did spend more than I probably should've on assembling the panorama itself :) —UED77 00:56, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Image:2006-01-15 coin on water.jpg - featured[edit]

coin floating on the water
  • Description: A Hungarian coin was carefully put on the surface of the water in a glass and photographed while it floated because of the water's surface tension. The colour is due to the wooden environment.
  • Nomination and Symbol support vote.svg Support by the photographer Roger McLassus 12:07, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral its a good picture, imho i think a lower angle showing more of the edge of the coin Gnangarra 14:28, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
    • On the same occasion I made (and later deleted) dozens of pictures from all possible angles. None of them showed the edge of the coin, because it was always hidden behind the curve of the meniscus. The coin does not lie flatly on the water, it dips in, so that the coin's upper side is deeper than the surface of the water outside. Roger McLassus 14:47, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral It is kind of low resolution. Do you have a larger image? Miskatonic 15:50, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Unfortunately I have no larger image. This is the reason why I've hesitated for more than two months before I decided to nominate the picture. Due to my camera's limited depth of focus at macro range I had to take the picture from quite a distance to get everything sharp. After cropping away the superfluous surrounding the remaining picture has now a rather limited resolution. Roger McLassus 16:21, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. How did you do it? - MPF 15:56, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
    • It was not easy. I held the coin in a horizontal position between the nails of thumb and forefinger and carefully put in on the surface of the water. I have some training in doing so (having done it occasionally since decades) but nevertheless it took me quite a lot of unseccessful trials before it worked. Roger McLassus 16:29, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support--Ygrek 19:32, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose the main subject, the coin, is way too small. Most of the picture just shows a glass of water. --Dschwen 21:30, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
    • The coin itself is not the subject of the picture, but the effect that surface tension prevents it from sinking. So the coin's details are irrelevant. The glass, however, is important, since it makes clear what is underneath the coin. Furthermore it provides an optical environment that makes the meniscus better visible. Roger McLassus 05:46, 29 March 2006 (UTC)
      • This is just nitpicking, I agree the details of the coin are not relevant, but the size of the meniscus around it is of the same order of magnitute, and that is just too small. Also The lighting could be way better. The shadows in the glass clutter the image and distract more from the floating coin rather than helping. --Dschwen 09:31, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

    • Blue is not the natural colour of water, which in fact has no colour. Water is only blue if reflecting a blue sky. But there was no blue sky above this glass of water. All its surrounding consisted of light-coloured wood. So there is no reason for any other colour to show up. Roger McLassus 18:19, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
      • This is not exactly true. Water being colorless is a common misconception which may hold for the tiny amounts we usually handle. A closer look at the absorption spectrum of water shows a comparatively high absorption in the near-infrared to red range, yielding to a faint blue appearance. Well, but in any case this would not matter for the conditions the photo was taken in :-) --Dschwen 20:51, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Maple leaves - not featured[edit]

Please state which (if any) you support, referring to them by number 1, 2, 3 or 4. I only intend for one of these to be featured but I am sure people will have different favourites (and least-favourites).

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose All of these four pictures are equally nice, but none of them is sharp in every part. I'd prefer just one sharp leaf instead of a disturbing multitude of them. Due to the fact that leaves are neither rare objects nor difficult to photograph an excellent quality would be needed to justify FP-status. MGo 11:44, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Leaves are not rare, true, but I have never seen any like this. pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:16, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
  • First of all: These are really nice pictures. Second and third one are very artifically, but have not much encyclopedic value due to disturbing composition. I prefer first and fourth one. Due to the fact, that they are little bit blurry (unfavourable, because of the feathery structure) and the sticks in the background, i just vote Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral. The first one is my favourite. norro 12:09, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

      • According to my own calculation 1.4° correspond to 2 minutes and 48 seconds. If it were my picture, I'd try it out and see if the correcting rotation can be performed without any visible loss of sharpness. If so, I'd rotate it, otherwise not. Roger McLassus 12:00, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

As per comments recieved, I begun to look at the composition. And in the original image, it is far from perfect to say the least. Yes. The composiotion must be improved. Your comments are right.

For that reason I cropped the image to still reasonable 1944 x 1944 pixels. I think that this should focus more on the actual subject. In addition, I think that it benefits the image as a whole, leaving away much which is boring. Also, as I used a "fast" telephoto lens "wide open" the depth of field is shallow. Hence, there is nothing I can do to get more of the image "sharp". However, as it was my intent to "to blow away the background", perhaps it is better to crop the image to such parts, that remain at least rather sharp. Which I think is the case with the cropped version.

For further improvement, however, there are limits. First, regading the left side, there is not one pixel of more space. Unfortunately, this guy got away after the shot. And other images I have, are simply out of focus. Yes, there is more sky available in the original, but that would be just more grey background above the bird. If anyone wants it, that can be provided.

In any case. PLEASE, for further comments and for the purposes of voting, PLEASE EVALUATE AND COSIDER the CROPPED IMAGE, titled "Falcon_Grey_BG_Crop_A.jpg". That is the one on the right. Thank you. --Thermos 16:36, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Bad foreground (especially ugly bus) and the sky is much too yellow to be plausible for a sunset. I suppose the sun is only hidden behind the big building in the center and the picture is taken quite a while before real sunset. Both the house on the left and the bus should be cropped and the picture renamed. MGo 18:05, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
    • While I can accept opposes and respect people's reasoning for them, I have to step in here, and say that as the original photographer, I can happily admit that I did not modify or enhance that sky in any way. What I did do was brighten the shadows of the foreground buildings to give them a bit more life and texture, but I think you should be slightly more careful with what you claim is implausible. Sunsets come in varying colours and intensities and I just happened to witness a pretty spectacular one. I have many more in a series I took of the sunset, showing its progression as the sun set. The sky ranged from a bright yellow to a deep orange to purpley violet. Diliff 22:59, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
      • You misunderstood what I wrote. Not the colours of the sky are inplausible but their occurrence during sunset. Sunset means that the evening sun is partly below the horizon (the real horizon, not just the sky-line of buildings or mountains). Due to the laws of physics the colour of sunset must be red. So if the colours in your picture are true, it cannot show sunset but rather the sky in the late afternoon. I oppose the use of the word sunset in the name of this picture, but as soon as this is corrected (and the bus and the house on the left are cropped) I'll support the picture.

I also like the way you have managed to get lamps within few buldings lit up, while within most buildings the lights are not yet on, perhaps indicating a town preparing for coming night. However, as per some opposing votes, I am wondering what could be achieved by simply cropping the picture a bit?

Would it be too much to ask, if you could provide a cropped version of your picture? Or perhaps you could provide another picture with a little bit different composition (I understand that you have more pictures of this moment)? In any case I would not oppose this picture, but I am wondering, if something even better could be had. Please, consider my comment.

      • Well how can it be "too dark"? If you are skeptical then how do you imagine this image was taken? Maybe it was scanned and edited to make the background blacker, the colours brighter, I don't know... I can't imagine how else it would have been taken though. pfctdayelise (translate?) 10:51, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
        • Quick lesson to scan a 3D object with a black background you either place a black cloth over the object, you use a box with the inside painted black or even a darkened room. As there no pressure points a box was the most likely method. The reason you can tell its a scan is the dust on the glass and the lines in the black Gnangarra
    • In the meantime I have made some experiments with my own scanner. As a result of this I am no longer sceptical and now believe that this picture is a scan. But scanning, however, is not the best method to create an image of tomatoes. Those parts of the tomato which have a greater distance from the glass get too little light and are therefore too dark. Apart from this inevitable disadvantage of scanning there is also too much dirt visible and the leaves are unnecessarily cut. So my opposing vote stands. MGo 17:55, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - There's a finger in front of the lens (bottom right). And yes, there is a tilt. Even at coastlines, the water obeys gravity laws ;-) I put an untilted version to the right, rotated by 1.8 degrees. Please compare. --Pumbaa 09:14, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
    • As for the finger I guess you are right, but the tilt is not so clear. The tower is too small to measure its uprightness with the necessary precision. The coastline is horizontal in the modified picture but not necessarily so in reality. This depends on whether the coast has the same distance from the photographer on its left and right side. If it is nearer on the left (which cannot be ruled out) the original picture is upright and the modiefied one tilted. Roger McLassus 09:57, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
Maybe you're right, but I'm pretty sure that the cliff from which the photo was taken is not high enough to make such an effect visible. If the photo were taken from a plane, I would agree. But the shape of coastlines can't be recognized when looking at them (almost) horizontally. --Pumbaa 16:04, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Got to agree it is tilted, but only by about 1° to 1.5°. Also that finger. I'd support a straightened version with the finger removed. - MPF 15:01, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Hot spring in Hverarönd in winter, Iceland; Andreas Tille 15:16, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

The right version is a suggested cropping done by User:Gnangarra. If people agree that this image is better I would start a new FPC entry for this version. Andreas Tille 06:11, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

Good idea. My problem as the author of this image is that I'm personally not distracted at all - kind of personal feeling about own images which is far from objective. So I would be more than happy if you would suggest some croping coordinates or upload a cropped image to a public place or whatever to make clear what you would regard as a better image. This would definitely be apreciated. Andreas Tille 18:36, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Is the question finding the best photo ever of a Green Flash or just accept this one for a featured picture? -- Cédric 06:37, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
It's a green flash, i.e. a rare atmospherique event lasting ~2 seconds or so, quite difficult to catch up. This one is particularly beautiful (IMHO) because the Sun has already disappeared below the clouds and also because of the thin bright line. -- Cédric 06:37, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Very nice indeed. But there are not on commons. ;-) -- Cédric 17:31, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
Exactly -- Dschwen, can you find a better photo in the public domain?
This is absolutely not the point. A crappy picture of by behind will certainly not be featured, just because there is no better one in the PD (I hope). Pictures here should be judged on photographic merit. --Dschwen 07:38, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose My congratulations to catch this event and I think the author can be happy about shoting something rare. But I would not really regard this as a featured picture just because it was hard to shot. Moreover I think that some cropping might enhance the image. While the author wrote "The image has not been modified in any way." I think cropping is allowed. Andreas Tille 17:47, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
Well of course I considered cropping. But it will crop also the thin orange line of clouds below the GF. So I definitely think it's better like that. The contrast created by the fact the GF is very small is interesting. Anyway, I think arguing is pointless here, since people oppose simply because they are not "impressed" ... Waste of time. -- Cédric 08:19, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
since people oppose simply because they are not "impressed"? Please reread the comments. --Dschwen 08:26, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
I usually need to read only once to understand, thanks for the advice. The pictures you link to, dear Dschwen, show very clearly the phenomenon, indeed but there are esthetically of very poor quality and/or small. Mine has its main quality in the absence of the sun, and the bright line of clouds, and in the contrast of the large but balanced image with the small size of the flash. Find another picture like that, I'll stop arguing. My image is not showing a rare event, it's showing a very rare event. And the image is of very good quailty given the difficulty of catching this event. Now, if you prefer flowers and ligthining, fine. -- Cédric 16:34, 23 April 2006 (UTC)
Flowers and lighting? What are you talking about. No need to get condescending here, especially with factually inaccurate statements. In my opinion there is not much merit in the size of the picture since most of it is blackness anyway. --Dschwen 09:54, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
