Brian Lara playing against India.
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Ukexpat - nominated by Anon. The picture should be featured because it looks elegant, is of a sport that is very popular in Commonwealth countries and we don't have any cricket pictures featured. -- 122.169.83.32 18:19, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The shirt is overexposed, but besides that I like it. Łukasz Wolf Golowanow (talk) 18:56, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Good pose, yes it would be nice to have a cricket FP (and I say that as an American with no special interest in the sport) and nice detail on the batsman and his uniform. However, is the blur on the bat motion-related or DOF? If the latter, that might prove problematic for other reviewers. Daniel Case (talk) 05:52, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating this image.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Paolostefano1412, your account is old enough. It is just that you are short by 3 or 4 edits if I counted correctly (This is a weird rule that I have opposed). To meet the edit count, just do an edit on some page (may be your user-page or some sandbox) then keep undoing that edit till you reach 50 edits! --Jovian Eye talk 13:29, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

On the other hand, you had very bad weather, with some haze and very poor lighting. You could crop it a bit on the sides so the plants don't disturb, and reduce color-noise a little (see mountains).

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The image looks a little tilted, but I compared it. It's an optical effect because the dock is not "parallel to the horizon". Anyways, I really liked this place when I visited, had great lighting and those red roofs in the same color are very nice. Hope you like it. -- Paolo (talk) 04:00, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Too few houses, too much sky and a little more sharpness, the picture would do well. Why ISO 320 and f/16. I think with f/8-11, would be more sharpness in the picture. --Ritchyblack (talk) 07:18, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
    • But the river is already a bit blurred, and higher aperture would mean more blur in the background, including the river, which was intended to be part of the subject. You are right: composition could be improved. But I would actually reduce the houses to have a better 1:3 ratio with blue(sky)/blue(river)/red(houses), and then exclude the crane on the left. That would be a possibility. Sharpness is better without noise reduction in the original pic. That is a matter of personal taste. I prefer smooth skies. But I'm open to suggestions -- Paolo (talk) 13:15, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
      • I would prefer not to see only 1/3 houses. My preference would be 2/3 houses, 1/6 river, 1/6 sky. That would put the ship at the (2/3, 2/3) focal point. --99of9 (talk) 04:13, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
        • Symbol support vote.svg Support I prefer this way actually. I don't need to see 100 orange-rooved houses to get the idea. I like the far-looking style here. It teaches the viewer immediately that we're looking at a city by the ocean and reminds me by the sky that Spain is one of those places that is dry almost all year 'round. IMO this is beautiful, educational and less boring than just a lot of houses. BTW this looks more like 1/2 houses, 1/4 water, 1/4 sky as is anyhow -- One, please.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support It's interesting to have a candidate so directly comparable to an existing FP. I picked through both versions, here are my inclinations:
  • The two pics have very similar resolution, disappointingly small given that this is such a standard shot, why not use the whole sensor / not downsample?
  • Both have similar sharpness.
  • The angles are so very similar that I can't say which I think is better.
  • This one has better lighting IMO, although it is more "flat", it shows better detail on the wall facing left. I find the shadows too strong in the other version.
  • This one has less pine trees obscuring the castle. Amazing that they've cut so many down, presumably for this reason?
So, this one has my support, and if it gets up, I think the other should be delisted. --99of9 (talk) 04:47, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Pale Blue Dot
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Voyager 1 Spacecraft, NASA - uploaded by Knowledge Seeker - nominated by Surajt88. Pale Blue Dot is the name given to this 1990 photo of Earth taken from Voyager 1 when its vantage point reached the edge of the Solar System, a distance of roughly 3.7 billion miles (6 billion kilometres). Earth can be seen as a blueish-white speck approximately halfway down the brown band to the right (annotation added). The light band over Earth is an artifact of sunlight scattering in the camera's lens, resulting from the small angle between Earth and the Sun. Carl Sagan came up with the idea of turning the spacecraft around to take a composite image of the Solar System. Six years later, he reflected, "All of human history has happened on that tiny pixel, which is our only home. -- Surajt88 (talk) 04:45, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This image was selected as picture of the day on the English Wikipedia for April 22, 2010 and I am of the opinion that it shoud be a featured picture in commons as well. Surajt88 (talk) 04:45, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Interesting science, but quality is not good enough for Commons. Yann (talk) 05:32, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
    • I agree. But at 6 billion kilometers away, quality similar to other FPs here cant be expected. Hope I am not sounding like a nutjob when I say that I nominated it for the reason that it is the most distant photograph taken of us and it has more beauty in its meaning than its content. Surajt88 (talk) 05:42, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
      • Not only the quality is not good, but the size is way below FP requirements. It is certainly a VI. Please nominate it here. Yann (talk) 07:18, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
        • Thanks. will do. Surajt88 (talk) 07:24, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

    • I don't know how this process could be considered credible if this image doesn't pass. JJ Harrison (talk) 06:31, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
      • I think you are confusing this process with another process on en:. Contributors that are new to commons should read the whole guidelines text before nominating (or voting for that matter). EV is not important on commons FP, other criteria are. The most important, yet most elusive and hardest to describe ingredient of a commons FP is the WOW-factor. That is something that strikes you the moment you see the image, not something that registers after reading half a page of explanations (I'm exaggerating a little here, but still). And then there are of course resolution, technical quality, composition and others. W.S. 05:26, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
        • No need for the patronizing explanation - I've been floating around here about five times longer than you have. Perhaps Carl Sagan could explain why this image is so special, and has great WOW-factor. Technical arguments don't apply - even if someone decided to launch another probe today, it took voyager about 15 years to get out that far. JJ Harrison (talk) 23:45, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
          • My comment was general, Noodles, and not specifically aimed at you. And I'm sure your were not yet 'floating' around here in 1982 ;-). W.S. 07:25, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Sorry about the silly file name. Obviously, I made it for myself as a desktop wallpaper along with File:Wallpaper Red Arrows.jpg, and then I thought it might be a good idea to upload it here, but I forgot to change the name. I pumped up the saturation a little bit (so that the planes actually appear red!) and tweaked the shadows so that the smoke appeared more crusty, but I did not rotate it. They were actually flying upside down. By the way, note how you can see the moment the smoke is created.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Sorry to spoil the fun, but I have a lot of problems with this. Firstly it would be more obvious to me that this is in a natural setting if the background hadn't been so blurred - it's a very unrealistic effect, at least for my eyes. The frog couldn't have been more than a couple feet off the ground, yet it's totally blurry just a couple of inches from where it is? Usually if you're looking at something (and are fortunate enough to still have good vision) and somethings just a few feet from it and unobscured the things in the background should be fairly sharp. I supposed this trick was employed because FPC is still to understand that there is such a thing as too much lead room and it would be impossible to crop out the leaf to the right, but I think I would've preferred normal sharpness, even if it attracted "no wow"s. Also the direct overhead lighting is bad. It's unrealistic because frogs are pretty timid and don't go under direct light often. It gives away that this was taken in a zoo (the frog must feel safe there). -- One, please. ( Thank you.) 04:05, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Mir wiederum gefällt die Perspektive nicht besonders, denn von der Durchfahrt könnte man mehr sehen, doch diese ist durch eine schattige und damit mMn schon allein störende Mauer verdeckt. Der Heckenansatz rechts gefällt mir ebenfalls nicht besonders. Hast du von diesem jedoch sehr schönen Motiv noch andere Bilder gemacht, von anderen Standpunkten?

And on another note, let´s not forget that art, whether you consider this art or not, for the idea of art is above any individual´s consideration, always has an ideological consideration, like it or not, evident or not. It is an instrument of communication. FP is a place where images, including art, have a place, and as such, the whole realm of its considerations apply. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 13:47, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Why is it hard for some of you to respect legitimate ideas and concerns about a very serious issue such as censorship. Passing judgement as lightly as some of you do about this issue speaks volumes of the state of sensibilization about this phenomena. It is obvious that it is not a concern, and as such, censorship has such a soft spot from which to enter and establish itself. You may not agree on my posture regarding censorship and may be offended by my critisism of it, yet I am also offended by the silence that promotes it. And Herbythyme, it is so arrogant on your part to tell me I should know better, do you know better? --Tomascastelazo (talk) 16:07, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
You are welcome to your views - sadly licensing is not about your views but legality. There is nothing at all light about the judgement on legal issues I assure you (neither is it censorship which I something I am against). I am sure you will continue to hold your views despite any real legal facts. --Herby talk thyme 16:16, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
@ Herbythyme: There is a legal expression that says: Not everything that is legal is just, and not everything that is just is legal. Legality is a human creation, and as such, subject to many flaws. At one point in history slavery was legal, and considering such precedent, we can assume that many other legal issues answer to the same baseless logic. Legal defense of legitimate intellectual property is absolutely fine with me, but censorship masqueraded as a legal issue is an altogether different animal. For all you know, you (or any of us) may be doing the devil´s bidding without knowing it. But regardless of ethical, legal and moral considerations, censorship it is.--Tomascastelazo (talk) 17:16, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Photomontage
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Many! - edited, uploaded and nominated by Mmxx --   ■ MMXX  talk  12:47, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info A photomontage made by compositing 16 freely licensed images, this is one of the best photomontages available on Commons.
    Although rules discourage digital manipulations, but this is a fictional art work and fits very well in FP as an art work, this work should not be mistaken with a real landscape, the fact is in this work manipulations adds to it's EV .
    Another version of this art work has been nominated before, in this new version, I have corrected the issues mentioned in last nomination, also I replaced the image used for earthrise with the Blue Marble which is closer to real colors.

    • They shouldn't be sharp, focus on different objects should be similar with it's surrounding area, it must be even as much as possible.   ■ MMXX  talk  16:16, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

It was certainly a lot of hard work (though maybe fun) to compile all the images into one whole, but normally one has a goal in doing so. This looks to me like a very random compilation of objects, technically all nicely done, but what's the point? --Quartl (talk) 08:53, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
    • The point may for instance be the illustration of the technique and/or possibilities of photo-montage. W.S. 09:39, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
      • Yes, but for an illustration of the technique 2 or 3 pictures would have been sufficient. What do you need 16 pictures for when each additional picture only increases the absurdity of the outcome but not the range of possibilities? --Quartl (talk) 10:03, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
        • Your question is like asking why do you take picture of a landscape while you can take picture of an object in your home and you don't have to be worry about weather or other stuff... this is just another photomontage like this, this or this one, it's a free art work with free and verifiable sources, to illustrate the photomontage techniques and to shows how can one create something using works with compatible free licenses.   ■ MMXX  talk  19:50, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
