  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Bluebell woods are lovely but also a very traditional and common English image and this one isn't outstanding imo. The paint marks and hazard tape on some trees are distracting. Christian is right that the dynamic range has exceeded the camera's capability both with a lot of solid black on the tree trunks and also highlights on the ferns catching the sun. There is a reason why the books recommend photographing woodland on an overcast dull day. -- Colin (talk) 21:16, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not convincing at all. I am missing any clear compositional idea - no real eye catcher. The cutted reflections at the very top left are rather strange, the water surface is inhomogeneous, I guess due to stitching, the reflections do not come out well due to mixture of moving and non-moving parts of the water surface. --Tuxyso (talk) 12:49, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Your wrong here, the water sourface is due to wind and no-wind areas over the river in combination with the longer exposure. There is definitly no stitching error, if wished I can upload a single frame of the pano to proof that. --mathias K 14:01, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
I had not stitching errors in mind, but irregularities due to different time slots. If it is the correct representation of one moment it does not change my perception - the wind and no-wind areas have imho a negative effect on the overall image. --Tuxyso (talk) 14:04, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

High water alarm cannon on the dike near Blankenham. The building at the bottom of the dike is a gunpowder storage. The pond in the background is the result of a dike breach. The eroding water made it very deep so the repaired dike was build around it. There are many such ponds to be found on the dike near Blankenham.

  • I think complaining about not enough resolution is rather silly. All photographs should be down-sampled just too shut up the pixel peepers. This is a web based medium not a fine print business. Not many of us have 4k screens and we don't produce pictures to be sold as printed art by 3th parties. Also this picture might not be good enough but the subject is rather interesting. Does anyone even consider that fact, or are we all looking for noise and aberrations? Featuring something interesting is more important than absolute image quality.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Tuxyso (talk) 12:23, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose For me the lighting isn`t the best, the sharpness could be better and the overall image quality doesn`t convince me. Looking over our existing featured pictures of crocodiles I don't think yours is that outstanding to get featured. Sorry Tuxyso. --mathias K 17:09, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
    • Indeed, pure image quality is not the primary merit of this photo. Can you priovide some other (better) example for FP crocodiles to better understand your argument? The main reason for nomination was the composition and the nice expression with the deep view inside the muzzle of the crocodile. Compared to the other photos in the same category my photo is very good. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:40, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
      • No I can`t, but thats sadly no reason to support yours. And I never said your photo isn`t good or even bad. ;-) But other than that mentioned quality "problem", the composition you choose is what also wont work for me here. The chosen angle brings some problems, the dof is pretty shallow and the most of the long mouth of the crocodil is not in focus. Furthermore the focus should fit exactly on the eye at this shooting angle, which isn`t the case here. Your photos are definitely the best in the cat, but I think there are better results possible. --mathias K 20:01, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
  • weak Symbol support vote.svg Support Nice capture. This "crocodile park" (that times there only were crocodiles afaicr) I visited 13 years ago, unfortunately long before Commons time and so no single photo was taken. Not to rule out that the baby croc I had in my hand for a while was just this one. --A.Savin 06:23, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
    • @A.Savin: The zoo administration massively restructured the park due to the bad reputation of the park received for reasons of very tight enclosures. The "zoo" is relatively small but they now have a lot of different animals very close to the visitors and tried to design the enclosures in a more species-appropriate way - an interesting trend which is visible in a lot of European zoos, e.g. in the ZOOM Zoo Gelsenkirchen. I sometimes wonder if it is really better for the animals or only better for the peace of conscience of the visitors. Nonetheless the crocodile past (I did not know that only crocodiles had been there) is still visible - a lot of different crocodile from small to big are still there. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:26, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Hey, Achim, just for shits and giggles: to me, the whole idea of camouflage was just wrong thematically. If he's head-down, crouching, stalking prey, then yes, blending in to his surroundings is perfect; but, here, he appears to be look-at-me-I'm-the-king-of-the-jungle-style sauntering, in which case he's supposed to stand out.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Mathias, Is this the best sun position possible or is there another strong reason for that time of the day? The image is a HDR according to your nom on de.wiki (I feel it would be nice if you might mention such PP in the description) and I find it slightly unnatural in appearance. It appears that this image was shot in your hometown and, according to sun position calculators, the large shadow could be avoided by shooting in the morning. I don't want to be annoying, but I'm struggling with the shadow given that we are talking about a FP nomination. --DXR (talk) 18:19, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
  • You´re right, this isn`t the best sun position. I didn`t tried it jet, but yes there is a "better" posible time to take this picture for the lighting/shadow problem. But then, it must be a summer morning, the trees in the foreground would be green and full of leaves what makes them way more dominant in the foreground. Thats what I try to prohibit here. When I developed the picture I gave my best to get the most realistic appearance cause I personally don`t like the obvious HDR look. I could gave it a try and take the summer pic to, to have something to compare. But for now I let this nomination run. ;-) --mathias K 18:41, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the explanation! What was your shooting postion, a private building? Hard to guess that on Google Maps ;-) Anyways, if I'm not completely wrong, it should be well-lit at ca. 9:30 CEST at the very end of March, you might want to try that. --DXR (talk) 18:50, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Weak oppose per DXR; the shadows should be thrown away from the camera position, IMHO. Also, I might've moved a couple of feet to my right so that the trees frame the windows and the banner foreground left is off the building. :) —ATinySliver/ATalkPage 20:14, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Got your point and your right, I also liked to move a little more right when I was taking it, but sadly this is the "rightest" position to take the picture in public area. --mathias K 20:26, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As written on German FP page: The usage of HDR technique for compensation of bad lighting conditions (which could be much better in the morning) does seldom lead to convincing results. Combination of light and shadow is not a general problem with architecture shots, can also create depth, but the shadow part here is at the right front and imho to prominent.
  • @Tuxyso: No problem with your oppose, but your "much better" example for better lighting has an even more ugly shadow in the foreground comming out of nowhere. This is defenitly no serious alternative in my eyes. --mathias K 13:26, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
@mathias K: Cross the "much", photography is ofter about trade-offs. I prefer the trade-off with a well lid building with some strong shadows around the building as shown on the other image. Just my personal opinion - nothing more.

I guess it has to do with the colors: It's obviously a bright sunny day, but the colors look kind of dull, missing vibrance (is that the right term?) or warmth. For example, I would expect the roof of the main building to look similar to the roof of the other church in the background. I very much appreciate you trying to avoid the "obvious HDR look", but it seems to me that you've overcompensated a bit here. --El Grafo (talk) 15:48, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Wait, I think I've got it now: Most parts of the image (apart from the church in the (right) back and the two smaller buildings in front of it) look very much like it might have looked to a person wearing sunglasses. If I were you, I'd try fiddling around a bit more in post-production – I've got a feeling that you're not far away from a really awesome picture! Cheers, --El Grafo (talk) 15:58, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

I don't find the TR crop overly tight, but feel free to have a look at the total panorama (quite some view in its own right!) and suggest what you would prefer. --DXR (talk) 08:24, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
I prefer the complete one. I would strongly encourage you to make an alternative (or additional?) nomination. The complete panorama is defintely FP worth and would surely receive a pro vote from me.

I lived in that area for a while and that's vibrant, you bet, but here I see a road wiht vehicles, a bridge and some neons in the background, I am not sure what you want to express with this work. To me the most interesting in that area would be having lots of people and neons, but here I find the bridge rather disturbing. Poco2 21:47, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks Diego. On the one side you're right: Shinjuku is generally characterized by lots of people and neons. But still: this area is also a major transport hub, with huge masses of people permanently coming and going. The railroad bridge in question is almost unbelievably busy, with trains crossing pretty much all the time. So integrating a train seemingly in motion helps convey this dynamic aspect in my eyes. --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 07:31, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

    • Will you reconsider? I've re-stitched the panorama with rectilinear projection. I originally chose cylindrical projection to avoid the distortion at the edges (this is a very wide view), but if Commons insists on rectilinear projection, I'm prepared to put up with a bit of edge distortion if Commons is.

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral It's to hard for me to oppose a image of Diliff (I never had done until now). This image is technical on a very high level and more then just a quality image. But the compact impression and the clear and big visible shadow in front blur the composition IMO. So I sadly can't support this image as FP. --Wladyslaw (talk) 14:17, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
    • No problem. :-) Yeah, the shadow is a bit of a problem. It won't really disappear until the summer when the sun is much higher in the sky. But is very difficult to get a photo of this garden at the museum without any people in it, so I had to go at 10am when it just opened to get a photo without any people. It's usually more like File:VictoriaAlbert2 small.jpg or even more crowded. The people are maybe not such a problem, but then they will be distorted at the edges (distorted people look even worse than distorted buildings!). Some subjects are just very difficult to photograph well. Diliff (talk) 15:07, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Christian Ferrer (talk) 04:14, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose (weak) I have looked at the image serveral times and cannot really make friends with it. The quality is (as expected) outstanding good but the extreme perspective leads imho to an imbalance of image parts. The right front of the building is overemphasized - compare the size of the very right window on the right (the one with the grid) with the grid one at the very left at the same side of the building. Also the pond in front of the building is emphasized due to its closeness to the camera. On your photo the pond is visually larger than the complete entry side of the building. Such a misleading size ratio is not fortunate for an architecture shot. As far as I can judge from afar an exactly centered position had led to a better balance of elements because the entry side of the building is obviously the most interesting one. Probably on the stairs into the pond there could be minor stitching errors (see note), but I am not sure. Just remove the note if I am wrong. --Tuxyso (talk) 13:17, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
    • I don't think there are any stitching errors. I took the panorama on a tripod with panoramic head so there should be no misalignment. I'll remove the note. Diliff (talk) 22:21, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Weak oppose I mainly agree with Wladylaw's comment. Top quality but very disturbing shadow. I would have probably try to capture the building without the pond. The right part of the building is also a bit too distorted, sorry Poco2 15:27, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Weak support. I think the rectilinear view is far better. Also, I'm going to be the odd one out here: I think the presentation would have been more interesting had the shadow taken up even more area, say, half-way across the water. —ATinySliver/ATalkPage 07:04, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I looked at this several times and I just can't get past that shadow, as it intrudes so much into the scene and is a distraction. Both projections were fine to me. Saffron Blaze (talk) 02:39, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I do not think that the shadow is too disturbing because it does not cover the building's main part. --EveryPicture (talk) 14:06, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, but I don't like the new projection at all. I maybe could have lived with the horizontals being arched, but now at least the right half looks simply wrong to me. For instance, have a look at the chairs at the right, the ornaments directly above them or the window panes and bricks in that area: They are considerably squeezed. --El Grafo (talk) 15:15, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
  • OK, points taken. I'll try to revisit this another time. The main reason why the position of the viewpoint was so close to the water was because the grass was officially 'off limits' due to recent resurfacing, and there was a 'keep off the grass' sign immediately behind which would have been in the photo if I had been further back. Hopefully they'll remove the sign and let people onto the grass and I'll take a photo from further back, meaning less distortion (and hopefully less shadow if I time it better).

    • It's very difficult to preserve the highlights in long exposures of waterfalls without underexposing the rest of the scene. It's not about contrast, it's about the camera having limited abilities to capture the full dynamic range of the scene. Diliff (talk) 20:12, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
      • I'll think about it, but underexposing to preserve highlights should really not be a problem. Brightening in post is always possible, or reducing contrast. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 21:04, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Julian H., your critique is not without merit. I noticed the two areas of clipped whites, but thought they were small enough to be ignored. I should have used some layers to recover those highlights as the RAW has the DR to deal with this. I will see about fixing it when I have some time. Thanks Saffron Blaze (talk) 21:10, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Brightening in post is 'always possible to do', but underexposing and brightening in post is not always a realistic proposition to solve the issues of blown highlights. If you've underexposed too much, you start running out of usable tonal range and the shadow detail looks poor. But if as Saffron Blaze says, there is still highlight detail in the RAW image then perhaps it can be fixed. Diliff (talk) 13:19, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Julian, I think this has been caused by the HDR processing. I have tried to keep it to a minimum but it is hard to completely avoid, at least with my tools. --DXR (talk) 08:04, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok, that's unfortunate. I'll still Symbol support vote.svg Support. I guess the only way to avoid it then is to manually do the HDR editing, which is admittedly quite difficult to get right, too. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 08:20, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Strong support if ArildV will forgive the contradiction. DoF where there should be DoF is correct, just from my (clearly?) uneducated PoV. The focal point is the center subject's right hand when it should have been the bit of saffron between her hands, which means Safa missed by, what, one inch? Two inches? Inconsequential. (And, Claus, I don't get your argument at all ... xD) —ATinySliver/ATalkPage 08:57, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
    I never said that the DOF was incorrect or that the photographer have made ​​a technical mistake. What I said was that I do not understand the point of choosing 200mm and limited DOF here.--ArildV (talk) 10:16, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
    As a viewer, it gives me the proper perspective within a tight shot of how small these people are in a vast field while still demonstrating their importance to the harvest. To better explain my comment to Claus, that they're "faceless" lends to this composition. :) —ATinySliver/ATalkPage 19:44, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with the comments regarding DoF. It is too limited and the isolation of just two of the workers is off putting at full res. I see this image as a missed opportunity. I don't like that the basket on the left was cut off and I also don't like the one person's face being cut off. Ideally this would have had all the workers in focus and the baskets fully within the scene and all workers looking down presenting the top of their hats. That would have been a masterpiece.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A living frame. The DOF is enough as the subject here is only the two people and their work (for me). This is brilliant photography without disturbing the subjects with a 50mm. And for those who want to see the face. Jee 16:40, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Thanks for the nomination! I had hesitated to nominate this, even though it's a fave of mine, because of the high-ish ISO (I can understand your point Christian, although I would amicably disagree about the composition and size). However, I've gone and looked at some of the other Mandarin FPs, and I think the detail is comparable.

I honestly hope you guys are not annoyed with my images crowding the space here, that wasn't my intention, of course. @Tuxyso: I have adjusted the size to 40MP, that footbridge from which I shot vibrates like hell and the faraway images are just too soft for any more resolution. Furthermore, I am not sure what the proper process is here? Should I withdraw the other one? Both images were shot seperately and are not based on the same material, and are certainly not alts in the strict sense. Could some more experienced users give their opinion, please? --DXR (talk) 10:24, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

  • weak Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I've come back to this picture a few times. The idea is really good (It could have been a brilliant photo), but the execution has a few flaws imo. It's not a good idea to place the pillar right on the edge of the picture (it highlights the perspective distortion and also an unfortunate cropping there), the train obscures the station building more than necessary. I think a picture taken a few feet further back would have been better (and solved both issues). Another possibility would be the opposite, to use a longer focal length to get a tighter crop of the train without the pillar on the left and with less of the station.--ArildV (talk) 15:00, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

        • The categorisation of this image is just stupid. I know Commons category tree is broken but seriously, the primary categorisation of this image should be that it is a mould on a soft drink. So if I go to that category I expect to see it. I don't expect to have to further specify the kind of photographic technique used to capture the image, and especially not when there are no other entries in that category. Focus stacking is as irrelevant to the user as the camera or lens used or the f-stop. Really we should learn to categorise at the sensible depth and not the n-th degree of specialisation. -- Colin (talk) 11:38, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

    • "I'm not sure how a soft drink goes mouldy but should I care" : it's some Coca Cola. --ComputerHotline (talk) 05:35, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
      • How do you get it to go mouldy rather than just evaporate away? It seems a bit contrived, as mouldy soft drinks aren't common in my experience. Anyway, my point is a featured picture, in addition to an outstanding image, needs to make some effort wrt file naming, image description and categorisation -- see the "Image page requirements" of the Commons:Image guidelines. You've told me that it is Coke but haven't updated the image description page. -- Colin (talk) 07:28, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Glacier Perito Moreno
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info All by me. The very tight crop is intentional. I feel it helps to "read" the image from left to right, ending at the boat, which is the only element allowing the viewer to get a sense of the sheer size of the ice wall. I made another panorama from the same location with a more conventional crop, but I feel this one is truly superior. -- S23678 (talk) 04:37, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Strong Oppose I have no idea what exactly am I looking at. Per Colin. Nice attempt at showing the patterns and size of the glacier, but the picture fails technically, and does not give a overall view of the glacier. Sorry. @S23678 --(✉→Arctic Kangaroo←✎) 06:59, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The idea might be interesting, but how it is done here is very unfortunate. Especially the first half (from the left) looks like a crop mistake because one does not know if the glacier should fill the whole frame or not. Also on the first half there is no visible reduction to the inner part of the photo. --Tuxyso (talk) 18:06, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I knew before proposing this FPC that I was going against the general consensus here, especially for the crop, but I felt the image was still FP worthy. I wont beg for people to change their votes, I will just try to beter explain my "artistic choices" and some of the technical difficulties of such a shot. I know my chances to turn the tide are slim, but I'm willing to face the wind.
    1. Crop : I'll expand on my first "info" bullet. It's very hard to get a sense of the scale of Perito Moreno by just looking at the glacier itself. It's truly a monstrous mass of ice, and very few pictures (IMHO) does justice to its size because of a lack of scale. By keeping a tight vertical crop, the boat isn't lost in the composition, it becomes an obvious element. This panorama isn't a crop from a larger one (all the pictures are exclusive). The extremly small portion missing at the top of the glacier on the extreme left was cut during the trimming of the panorama. I feel it's not a big deal, but I could crop the left of the panorama if some feel it could be a game changer.
    2. Color/brightness : The ice is clearly blue to the naked eye. The -2EV frames would have picked-up darker blues than non-HDR pictures, and I always give my pictures a strong saturation. Wether you like it or not a really a personnal choice that I can't discuss, but at least you know the origin of the color. As for the brightness, the -2EV frames (1/8000s, f/5.6, ISO 100!) were the only one not to overexpose the ice (on an overcast day!). Only the +2EV frames started picking-up colors in the forest, but the exposure fusion of all 3 exposures gave it a "shitty HDR" look, so I kept only the -2 and 0EV frames. As well, the dark forest really isolates and highlights, IMO, the glacier and the boat.
    3. Composition : I divided the image in 3 "thrids", first one shows ice details, the second the entire ice wall and the third is the boat. I know the picture does not shows the entire ice wall (which is impossible to do from the ground because of its concave shape), but are we limited to only showing the "big picture" without ever going into details?
    4. Other pictures : To the voters who proposed some of my other panoramas (with wider FOV) of the glaciers as an alternative , I just want to mention that I had to dismiss most of them as possible FPC because of uneven skies caused by internal lenses reflection from the very bright glacier at the bottom of the frames (this isn't obvious on first look). I'm still glad you liked these panoramas. Sorry for taking up that much space! --S23678 (talk) 22:21, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is large, very large (which is good), but the only feature of the image (the waterfall) fades into insignificance. So unfortunately not enough wow for me. Moros y Cristianos 18:18, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
    • The feature is the valley itself! It may not have many other notable features, but neither would a photo of the Grand Canyon have any other features other than a big valley. Is the view not enough wow in itself? I've seen plenty of photos with less impressive views pass here without any opposition. Diliff (talk) 22:16, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Great one! The quality is awesome and the view is definitely featurable! The waterfall is "just" a nice addition... --mathias</
