  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment if other image is not better, then I oppose a delisting. Gryffindor 18:32, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
Even if the other image isn't better (and it is not), I don't think that this picture can be considerated a FP if it isn't complete! El ComandanteSkull and crossbones.svgHasta ∞ 19:13, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
Indeed, it does seem cropped. I am changing my vote to neutral, I still think it deserves to be listed, but if it's cropped... oh well, too bad. Gryffindor 07:07, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Thought I would test the waters with something a bit different - Technically proficient with an interesting subject that is a bit different from the "sunset set"--SFC9394 16:42, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose not very beautiful --Luc Viatour 19:01, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
Comment: That is entirely the point. From the nominator’s guidelines above: "beautiful does not always mean valuable", the reverse is also true. I thought I would test things a bit here, because featured pictures is meant to represent what is most valuable to the commons, not just what looks nice - and this picture is both technically sound, and the only picture of frostbite on the commons (I uploaded a number of beautiful mountainous pictures from the same photographer with the last ‘Licker upload – but I thought I would choose this to try and get something featured that isn’t just another panorama scape) SFC9394 19:50, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I understand — and agree with SFC9394 : we can't have only landscapes (or caterpillars;)...

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support for educational purposes. A better illustration of frostbite than those extreme cases one usually gets to see. There should, however, be more info. Under what conditions does one get this kind of frostbite (temperature, humidity, clothing, exposure duration)? And what stage is this? Apparently not quite recovering yet. A series showing the recovery process would also have been nice, but that may be asking too much. DirkvdM 11:01, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - It took me some time to figure out what this was about. There are only three subjects: a flag, baseball and apple(pie). The flag is the hint but not visible enough. Baseball fits in. But what about the apples? Surely, that's not something that is strongly associated with the US. Maybe it is a play on 'American Pie', but that would be too far fetched. It is neither visually impressive (for a composition) nor educative. DirkvdM 09:57, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

The only thing that is really in focus is the month's face (and even that could probably be sharper), which is too small (and too connected to blurry parts) to be visually interesting in and of itself. In the end it just doesn't have the crispness I'd want out of a macro lens photo, probably owing to limitations of the camera. --Fastfission 15:45, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't think I am able to improve this image with a simple crop. To reduce clutter a wider view would be be required. Alternatively, concentrating on fewer elements, such as completing the statue at the bottom or the figures at the top. I fell that the perspective, the photo appears to be taken from below, results in both statues being incomplete and cluttered with flowers etc. Anyone else is of course welcome to have a go. Snowwayout 10:18, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Snowwayout - Above you will see the wider view. The scence is what is. Is is the remnants of the Baroque period (a dynamic and dramatic style of art and architecture in mostly Catholic countries during the 17th century that stressed emotion, variety and movement. It was a style that used ornate forms as well as illusionism and realism to achieve its purpose. www.wideskiesart.com/fineartglossary0.php). Interfering with the objects or the scene would destroy its intent. Much like shaving the lion´s hair to make him look better. I do not interfere with the subject. This is not about the picture, I invite you to explore the faces, the symbols and appreciate them for what they are. Look beyond the picture. Look beyond the glass. And you can still not like it... no problem. --Tomascastelazo 14:03, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the wide view, it clearly demonstrates the fine craftsmanship of the period. I can also appreciate how the subject matter would be highly emotional and symbolic for some people. However, my oppose vote is for the image itself (for reasons already given). With respect, this is Featured Pictures, therefore the quality of the picture is paramount.Snowwayout 21:08, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

  • This is a self-nomination, but I was very happy with how it came out. It is an explanation of how a multi-stage MIRV missile (in this case, a Minuteman III) is launched. It is based on an image in a US government publication, but completely re-drawn from scratch in Inkscape with a number of big changes, and with numbers for easy internationalization. You can see it used in an article at the MIRV article on the English Wikipedia. --Fastfission 00:58, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Note - This is a US missile, which suggests that that is the US on the left. Which would make that Europe on the right and the island (Great Britain?) reinforces that notion, which makes the image a bit too suggestive, even though the countours don't fit. Moving the island to the other side of the ocean would probably solve that. DirkvdM 19:19, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
    • The landscape is generic (it could just as easily be firing over the North Pole, or over the Atlantic Ocean), but sure, I could move the island, it's no trouble. --Fastfission

I'm very sorry but do we evaluate the image or where it was shot? Since when are zoo shots not acceptable for FP? Andreas Tille 19:56, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
It is not where it was shot, the cat seems uninteresting (to me). Generally zoo shots do not show the animals in motion, or their natural level of alertness, etc. Your picture Image:WolfInNumedal.jpg, for example, is a much, much better image. That is my opinion.--Tomascastelazo 15:13, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
There is way too much stress on pretty pics here and too little on encyclopedic value. Where a photo was taken is very essential information. Especially when a natural subject is taken out of its natural environment. This is not a natural shot and that should be made very clear. For this photo the description was removed, so the fact that it was shot in a zoo is only visible in the file history. That doesn't make it a bad photo, though, I'm just reacting to the question whether this info matters. DirkvdM 19:33, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the hint that I have removed the Zoo information. It just was a mistake when I switched from the simple upload text to my description template. It is readded now and it was not intended to hide information (which can be obtained from the source page anyway). On the other hand I continue to fail in seeing the difference between a Zoo shot and a wildlife shot. I think the difference can probably be seen on a video, but I certainly doubt that a blind study containing wildlife and Zoo shots will show that people are able to separate these two groups. So the missing information was a drawback for the image but this is fixed now. Andreas Tille 20:10, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
I wouldn't see the difference, but I'm pretty sure that in general animals behave differently in captivity. Then again, a realistic representation would be a series of random shots. By selecting the nicest photo, we also manipulate how people view animals. There's a constant friction between truth and beauty in photography. DirkvdM 09:41, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

An OK photo, but nothing special, other than it's rather well touched-up. The background is quite random, not to mention that the car itself is moderately plain (it's not the photographer's fault, but still).

I am sure 15 min of photoshop could have improved this picture a great deal by having the eye go right on the car instead of being obstacled onto the left border and through the flowers before finally fixating the vehicle... too many words for too little a flaw: still a good shot - plus a car in here afterall :-) -- Boereck 08:28, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Comment: Not sure on that - H. syriacus is also very commonly cultivated. But even if they are mostly H. rosa-sinensis, unless they are wild-type plants (preferably photographed in the wild!), they should have a cultivar name - MPF 23:12, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Depth of field is a function of focal length and/or aperture. Density is a function of exposure. Sharpness is relative to medium and enlargement, as well as viewing distance. Pic taken with ektachrome 100, 35 mm. --Tomascastelazo 00:32, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
    • I didn't want to give a tutorial in basic camera operation, but you're right... Generally however, if you increase exposure time, you get better landscape pictures (better density and depth of field if you like). It is a shame because its a nice location, but I think it is possible to get a better photo from there. -- Tomhab 08:51, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment backround wrong colour and doesn't look right(focus)? --Digon3 02:08, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Tomhab: All pictures can always be better, even good ones. As to density, if you know the nature of slide film and the shorter dynamic range, you will find that the density is correct, detail in shadowns, detail in sunlit areas. Slide film is unforgiving in exposure errors due to limited lattitude. Color in background is called haze... moisture in air does that to landscapes, that particular day, that was the way it was. Painters use haze a lot in lanscape paintings. It give the feeling of distance. Pic taken on tripod, 28mm lens, ecktachrome 100 film, 125/f11, cable release. Canon lens and camera. A lot of detail in a small surface. Of course you cannot see the needles of the pine trees in the other side of the canyon.--Tomascastelazo 16:42, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
