  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The engraving is as it was scanned; the hue/slight colour is the same as how it appears in the newsmagazine. And the original engraving is not perfectly rectangular, hence it may appear as though the crop is too tight. However, you may perhaps prefer the second version; black and white with a wider crop. :) RedCoat 21:02, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Moire pattern in hills of the top image; the scan needs more resolution. There's dots instead of lines in a couple of the others. Is this from the original print, or a reproduction? Because that's a common reproduction error for engravings. Adam Cuerden 11:58, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Oops, I hadn't noticed that; the moire pattern can really be detrimental. The thin lines cause it in this case don't they? And it's an original engraving though. RedCoat 15:33, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Yeah, Moire's a problem with engravings. I don't mind if it shows Moire when shrunk by wikipedia - hell, one of my uploaded engravings does that - but it shouldn't have it at full, and this one does. Still, if you have the original, it shouldn't be too hard to scan it at a somewhat higher resolution, in which case I'll definitely support. Forgive the questioning about the dots in those grey skies - it's not a common engraving technique, so it's better to double check it's not an artefact of reproduction.

      • I like this picture. It's nice and clear and sharp, with enough light where it needs to be and a good composition, IMHO. But should I oppose to cancel out your vote? I have put up many of my own pictures for FP candidates, and so far, I have not succeeded. Is it because people don't like me? I don't think so. I think it is because they don't like my photos, as you say, they keep finding problems with them. So I listen, and I learn, and I think I am getting better at taking photos with less problems.

What kind of argument is this?? Are you angry?--Christoph Michels 16:08, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
Just a little bit, but don't worry, I'll survive. Dantadd 16:09, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
I do not think it is a valid argument for opposing the picture. Would have you supported the same picture, if it was taken by a South American tourist? --Mbz1 16:22, 24 July 2007 (UTC)Mbz1
We need more FP of Latin American subjects. It doesn't matter who takes the picture. Dantadd 16:30, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
I agry we need more high value pictures from all over the world including Latin American subjects. Yet I'm not sure how opposing of that European picture could help to introduce the pictures from Latin America? There's no limit in the pictures that could get FP status.--Mbz1 16:49, 24 July 2007 (UTC)Mbz1
Well' you're right, but until we have a more fair distribution I'll oppose all European and North American picture. That's my personal opinion. Dantadd 16:59, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
Everybody could have their own opinion and, if I were you, I would have tried to find some interesting Latin America pictures, which are in public domain, upload them to Wikipedia and nominate them on FP simply because opposing all European and North American pictures will not help your couse while nominating more Latin America pictures could help.--Mbz1 17:42, 24 July 2007 (UTC)Mbz1
I'm gonna do it. In fact, I already did it with this beautiful historical picture (Image:Revolução de 1930.jpg), but, as always, the same users have found a hundred of unforgivable flaws in it. Dantadd 18:05, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
I think it would be a pity if this forum became a place for fighting over national or continental representation. So far I thought this was about good pics, but I just learned that you can't hide from politics :-) --Christoph Michels 20:23, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
I think that we must have to things in mind: good pictures and fair representation. If the election is just a matter of quality we already have the Quality Picture nomination. Please, take a look on the FP category: it's not fair what we see there. It's not a matter of politics, but everybody wants to feel represented. Dantadd 22:35, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
How can it be a matter of representation without being a matter of politics? And how can you then demand one sort of politics (continentalism?)only? If we start this debate here we should also take into consideration all issues of fair representation, e.g. gender, nations, continents, species, humans/non-humans, classes, ethnic groups, religions, political parties (you could extend this list endlessly depending what kind of politics you are interested in.)But I think this issue (for this forum) had been settled long time ago. And at least I understood that FP is about (a politics of) representing high quality images with an encyclopedic value. If you have the feeling that some pictures are discriminated due to their origin you are right in yelling out loud. But: From looking at the way people argue here I do not share your perception. And: I can't understand why you then start to discriminate others due to their origin. --Christoph Michels 09:21, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I have never seen such a ridiculous argument on Commons. Perhaps Europe simply does have more interesting subjects to be photographed? More skilled photographs?
I think this vote should be crossed out and not counted as Featured pictures is not about expressing personal political/ideological views, but selecting good quality pictures. What if somebody votes against a picture of a politican saying "I don't like him, he's a liar"? This vote is a dangerous precedent. --Derbeth talk 09:09, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
The dangerous precedent has already been set. Just look at the FP category. Ridiculous argument is "Perhaps Europe simply does have more interesting subjects to be photographed? More skilled photographs?" This is not a political or ideological view, it's just a matter of equity, but it seems that a lot of people is getting angry because somebody noticed that there's is a wrong systematic in play here. Dantadd 12:30, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
  • You are really funny. Now YOU (Dantadd) are the only one who opposes a picture because of the country where it is coming from (what a disgusting reason). If we all start a behaviour like you are doing here, we will soon have a mess here. That you as a Commons Administrator give such statements here is quite shocking for me. Again the nationality is of no matter here...i don't care if we have many pictures from Europe here...i want that commons becomes a source for good pictures. If we give low quality pictures with no composition the FP-status, then the FP in general will lose its value and we can close it down all together. But you don't seem to understand that - FP-status is only for the best pictures. --AngMoKio 12:36, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I'm really wrong. I tried, but you seem not to agree that there's an absurd and blatant inequity in the features pictures. I'm not here by myself. This problem was brought to me by two editors on pt.wiki. There's just a sentiment of impotence and impossibility of a even minor representation here. But, you won. Keep going and thinking that everything is perfect. This is not a matter of electing bad pictures, I'm not asking that. I'm asking to little techinal flaws to be forgiven in order to have more equity. Just that. If it's just a matter of quality, why have two parallel elections to decide it?. I don't understand. That's my final comment on this. Dantadd 13:01, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
Dantadd, we have more FPs of mammals (even without counting pictures of humans) than of beetles, while there can be aroung 350,000 species of choleoptera in the world, but less than 5,000 species of mammals. If this was a matter of fair representation, we should oppose every nomination of pics of mammals, and forgive flaws on beetle pictures until we reached equity among subjects. But we don't. We apply the same criteria (not just quality but also interestingness, uniqueness and usefulness - differences between QIs and FPs can be read in the instructions) to images, regardless of taxonomic class, order, or continent. Opposing a picture just with the comment too many European FP pictures looks as strange as opposing a pic of an oryx commenting too many FP of mammals. It's true that we have a bigger want of images of Latin American beetles than of European mammals, but we should have more FP of both types. --Javier ME 22:04, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
What if we sought equity among cities instead of among continents? If I found a second excellent and informative image of Brasilia, should I abstain of featuring it until we featured at least one of all the other cities which currently have none? I think we should feature more images, even if they were from Segovia , a minor European city of which there is already one FP. The problem with Image:Revolução de 1930.jpg was neither its continent nor it had a hundred of unforgivable flaws. It was that its values were not enough to overcome the certain flaws it had. I agree with Dantadd, however, in that the first questioned reason of the amount of European FPs were not probable "Europe simply does have more interesting subjects to be photographed?". It's very difficult to say if Europe has more skilled photographers than America, but it's easy to guess that the proportion of people with good photographical equipment and affordable access to Internet is higher in Japan, Western Europe or North America than in parts of Latin America or Africa. I also understand that taking photos of humans is easier than taking photos of insects without the proper makro equipment and skills, but anyway I suspect there is specism here and some voters are more interested in images of humans than of beetles, so we'll hardly reach equity in this :P --Javier ME 22:24, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

It may have lots of detail, but what good is detail if you don't know what it really looks like to the human eye? I prefer the projection used in this version.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose That is just too huge an angle of view to be projected usefully on a flat surface. Is there no possibility to go further away and shoot this with a more tele lens? --MichaD | Michael Apel 10:08, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Not really, short of a completely different view. I had the time to wander around. As Ram-Man has found here and here one can go slightly back, but bushes start blocking the view. Further back the village starts, and from the other side you get no sunlight onto the bridge. And this photo may help to explain effects of cylindrical projection. -- Klaus with K 11:33, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment What if we trimmed a bit off the sides of the rectilinear, to remove the heavily distorted trees, then nominated it? Adam Cuerden 18:36, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It still leaves the distorted pillars on the rectilinear. I think I am finding out the hard way that a mere flat screen is inadequate to display a panorama. -- Klaus with K 12:03, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
Pictogram voting info.svg Info Acknowledging some private discussions I feel that these are justification enough for me to say that illustrating the railway viaduct from the gallery above the right photo is presumably the best choice (unless one prints the image on a semicircular screen) but imaging the viaduct with its dominant horizontal and vertical components and also some fine structure in the girders the left photo can well illustrate the properties of a cylindrical projection. Rectilinear and equirectangular projections to serve as comparisons are now available as well. -- Klaus with K 19:28, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Ack Ram-Man - so I normally would Oppose, but I marked my vote as neutral because there is one more Oppose listed here than it should be. Now the final calculation should be fair again. Andreas Tille 10:00, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

As can be seen by the separation b/w mountains and sky (white fuzz) the sky is almost certainly courtesy of PS gradient tool - ie it is fake. Looks to me as though the sky was completely blown in the image, and a simply blue gradient has been used (and a rather poor cut out spoiling the image).

I would not mind any comments from one, who was in cage with sharks. I would not mind valid comments from everybody else.I do mind sarcastic and unfair comments from the one, whos very best wild life image is a supper quality and a supper no value (in my opinion) image of a head of giraffe taken in a nearby zoo.What was also rather surprising that all very nice samples, which fir0002 shared with us were taken not from Wikipedia. It is really strange to me because just few days ago fir0002 wrote to me: "Wikipedia doesn't want people to get the info from another site, it wants to give the people the information."

Pictogram voting info.svg Info I think it's a very interesting picture.I propose an edit; I reduced it,I smoothed the sea and I sharpened the shark (some parts more than others).It isn't really sharp yet, but it's absolutely shark! Vassil 14:02, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info As Szilas said, there doesn't need to be a specific subject here other than the valley extending into infinity. What I tried to express through this shot was the very particular mood we were into after getting through this pretty hard pass (the highest point of the whole trail) and seeing this endless valley unroll upon us, with evening light and a really peaceful/melancholic set of mind. I guess the real subject is the perspective and the mood. --Nattfodd 23:42, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

I prefer this uncroped version in this format...maybe it is possible to crop a little on the right side to move her a bit to the right side in order to "de-center" her a bit. But you have my support if you upload a color-improved version of this one. --AngMoKio 19:55, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
    • I did an edit here, trying to focus on the skin tone and reduce pixel grain. I'm still not perfectly satisfied, and if people keep complaining about the cropped headdress it might not be worth nominating. ~ trialsanderrors 16:48, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
      • Your edit is not bad. Though I have to say I like the format of this original picture. Well about the cropped headdress...the crop of the head is perfect and has to be like that. To crop upper parts of heads is a very common composition for portraits.--AngMoKio 08:04, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info After reading and considering the comments above I was tempted to load up another edited version. But there are too many different recommendations: vertical or horizontal format (on de.wikipedia someone also mentioned square), more or less correction of color and/or light etc. ... there does not seem to be one version to satisfy all viewers (for enzyklopedic use, there are already two edited images, one by myself, one by by trialsanderrors). Personally I like the image just as it is, with the blurry background (including the black area at the left, which, to me, works as a visual completion of the image), with the cut headdress (otherwise the bust-like portrait would lose its vertical balance) and the bluish-pale colors which support the atmosphere); so I wont load up another edit for FPC. Nevertheless: thank you for all comments, feedback is always very welcome :-) Tsui 17:57, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Good portrait of a nice lady in a beatiful posture. Unfortunately the photographic quality is far from adequate for FP status. The edited version has better colours and crop but the chromatic noise is just too much. - Alvesgaspar 18:31, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

However, the noise and lack of detail, especially in that of the swan's underside, prevents me from supporting.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Created, uploaded and nominated by Peter Isotalo; a picture of the museum ship Vasa shot from the catwalk used to service the lighting fixtures below the ceiling of the Vasa Museum. The platform is off limits to visitors and is otherwise only accessible to postcard photographers. / Peter Isotalo 10:56, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose That's a missed opportunity then :-(. The picture is far too noisy to be featured here. Sorry. Lycaon 12:49, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
    • Is it a technical limitation of the camera or merely a matter of settings? Peter Isotalo 16:38, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
      • I'm not sure the settings can be improved upon. Check the ISO settings an put them as low as possible. If it is on Auto, it will probably revert to ISO 400 in such circumstances. With a lower ISO you will get longer shutter times, but I assume your using a tripod already anyway. The Canon PowerShot A610 can be set as ISO 50, that should reduce the grain. Illumination of the ship will always be a problem though, I'm afraid. Lycaon 16:50, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
        • I actually know diddly about photography and I don't even own a tripod so I guess it might be difficult to get it up to featured quality. Especially considering how shaky one gets when hobbling about on a steel catwalk some 30 meters above the museum floor... :-) I'll see what I can do about getting the AV tech guy to get me a a few shots worth of extra photo lighting (they really only turn it on for press photos as far as I know). One thing, though: is the composition okay? Peter Isotalo 17:11, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I tried to apply some technical adjustments, but unfortunately I could not make it any better than the version I uploaded. Apparently this is extremely hard image to improve regarding noise. Unfortunately the orginal has a lot of noise, which obviously can be reduced in both luminance chrominance channels. However, what makes this tricky, is that when the noise is reduced, the detail in deck and other parts of the image starts to dissapear. Which is a really, really pity. The angle is good and such image is certainly needed by the projects. In any case, thank you Peter for contributing the image. --Thermos 09:47, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

But I don't understand why it is being rejected on the basis of technical reasons. The image is sharp, detailed, well composed, and the colours are nice and natural. DOF was carefully chosen to keep the background blurred and give some depth to the head, even at the expense of some slightly unfocused areas. I went through all pictures listed in the Felis silvestris catus page and, frankly, I couldn't find a better one (including Fir0002's).

    • The original is a full A3 newspaper page print, so it's not actually made that much bigger. Also, you can't get the necessary detail if downsampled so that it shows on the screen at the original size: Distinct lines become patches of grey, or, worse, moiré.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'll grant it's hard to make a bible verse dramatic, and you manage fairly well, but that's kind of an awkward printing. Dividing Jesus into "Je-" and "sus", using him instead of Him, and so on. Also, the file name is obviously inaccurate (9 for 19), and leaves out the book it's from.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Because heart (the artsy side) has prevailed over reason (the technical side). And I like to believe that I'm more on the first side... With the present hight of the bar I consider this one to be on the borderline. And though the lighting is not the best it doesn't affect much the detail on the hopper's body. Alvesgaspar 11:23, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I can tell you why I supported. We also judge the composition here...and in my opinion this is one of the very few pictures of an insect that really has a thought-out composition. For most insect pictures i can't really give a vote at all. They are quality-wise very good but seldom have a convincing composition - that's why I dont know how to handle them. --AngMoKio 19:21, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

  • I'm pretty sure it is a cylindrical projection, but you would have to ask Klaus with K. For this picture I think a cylindrical projection is better than a straight, equirectangular projection, which IMO would make it boring. --Digon3 talk 22:55, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Hmmm, I just wanted to illustrate here how to remove some dust...and now that. Yes it is a cylindrical projection, in panorama context I would call that a bog-standard projection.

This seems to be more than 180 degrees and looks like a rectilinear projection? Maybe its possible? --Digon3 talk 19:50, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
It cannot be rectilinear. My guess is its cylindrical too, wit a semistatistical distribution of trees you just don't notice it. In Klaus' picture there are many straight and linear elements which get distorted by the projection. No biggie for me, I prefer conserved proportions over straight lines in this case. --Dschwen 20:42, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Wrong count. 8 people supported this one. Digon3 said he supported all, but the first.--Mbz1 12:24, 20 August 2007 (UTC)Mbz1
So edit 3 has 8 support-votes, too. So the situation is the same. Personally i find the colours in this version oversaturated. So i decided to feature the other version. But I dont know what to do in such a situation. The guidlines say we should feature only one picture of the same motif. So i decided to feature the last one. But if you dont agree with this decision, what else can we do? Should we consider a new nomination of both edits? --Simonizer 13:13, 20 August 2007 (UTC) Iam confused. I copy Digons Support vote and feature this one. --Simonizer 13:17, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
