I cannot, because the whole plant is unsharp and/or blurred. IMHO there are two possibilities: 1. You forgot to activate vibrance reduction on your lens (does the lens have VR?) 1/160 @ 100mm could be critical without VR oder you mis-focused the plant. It looks as if the focus lies in front of the plant. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:05, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Logo of a Panther B8 motorcycle.
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info c/u/n by Christoph Braun (talk) 22:38, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not sharp enough. Besides, why did you set the aperture to 7.1 although the motive does not have any depth? --Florian Fuchs (talk) 05:16, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
The logo is attached to the motorcycle's fender - a round surface. You might want to have a look at the annotations of File:Wiki-Projekt Private Fahrzeugsammlung Braunschweig NIK 1826.JPG. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 06:09, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
From what distance did you take the picture? What is the depth of the logo? --Florian Fuchs (talk) 07:44, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
~0,3-0,5m distance, ~1-3cm depth due to the fender's curvature. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 09:05, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
At a distance of 50 cm, a focal length of 100 mm, and an aperture of 7.1 the DOF is 0.86 cm. This can never be sharp if the depth of the log is somewhere between 1 und 3 cm in my opinion, unless you use focus stacking. --Florian Fuchs (talk) 09:25, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, I'm well aware of using a depth of field table. The intention for this shot was neither to get the entire logo in focus, nor to use focus stacking to compensate. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 19:54, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

    No, it has nothing to do with french history. My support is only due to pure national canvassing, of course and as usual. Good answer ? If not, I think that this picture is really charming, I feel some emotion when reading the text, a special poem in a typical and classical french form (alexandrins). This makes me a little sad and "romantic". I do like the contrast between the stone texture and the metal, the capture of colors is perfect, and well, this testimony of love through the centuries speaks to me. For me, there is something "special" in this picture, far much more than in the tons of top quality butterflies or spectacular landscapes we have here (I appreciate them too). Maybe it is a part of the "french spirit" (if any)?--Jebulon (talk) 11:47, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

    • I cannot change your "Wow perception" but imho the light is at this special daytime is quite good. If you take a look on this direct Suncalc link you can see that at the daytime of the photo all important parts of the harbour als well-lightened by the morning light. Take e.g. a look at the tower on the very right. Later at the day you have got the problem of contra-light situations. --Tuxyso (talk) 04:50, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
      • All important parts may be well-lightened. However, the cloudy sky makes the picture look boring to me. Besides I find the shadow on the left hand side disturbing. Overall, although it may have been difficult to stich the pictures together, the picture seems like an ordinary snapshot, escpecially if I compare it to the FPs you have taken so far. --Florian Fuchs (talk) 05:12, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
        • An interesting argument, but I think the term "snapshot" is misplaced here. If I take a photo I always think about the light and composition. You are right that this photo was a relatively spontaneous one. I took it before a boad trip to seal banks near the harbour of Cuxhaven. Spontaneous photos (not snapshots) are not bad per se - in contrary. A very special light situation, sky formation or motive is seldom planable. If I take a look on my FPs I would say that about 50% of them were spontaneous photos (with the meaning that I have not planned to photograph exactly that motive in that compositon). --Tuxyso (talk) 06:25, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Technically it is very good, very sharp, great detail. But I agree with King of Hearts that the composition just isn't working. The right-hand-side isn't helping, with the white tower block "looking out of the picture". Suggest you try cropping to include just the left 9000px and see how you feel about that composition. I think that improves it, but still perhaps not enough to go wow.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support and Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Outstanding work overall—especially with the germ cells. Bézier quality is poor though—there are far more points than necessary, and lots of strokes have been converted to outline paths (with excessive numbers of points). Visible curve deformities in the Rectum/Anus area. The circle on the pharangeal/intestinal valve has seams and is for some reason, an outline instead of a stroke. Visible seam between the two halves of the intestine too—first half is under the inset shadow, the second half is above it. Expect for the overpointing, those are minor problems though.—Love, Kelvinsong talk 19:31, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
Kelvinsong: I will re-examine the picture in light of your comments, but I should point out that the difference you are seeing in the halves of the intestine are intentional: the left/ anterior arm of the intestine is "above" (from the viewer's perspective) the anterior gonad arm, and then around the middle of the animal it switches to the other "lower" side. For more clarity on this, consider seeing the Wormatlas page on hermaphrodites. Thank you for your comment and your support! KDS444 (talk) 01:05, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
What I meant is that the shadows contradict the z-layering of the shapes themselves. The first half of the intestine is drawn as above the gonads, yet it's under the inset shadow of the worm's body. The second half is drawn under the gonads but it's above the inset shadow. You can see where the shadow abruptly cuts off where the blue meets the purple.—Love, Kelvinsong talk 01:19, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
Okay, I have now gone over the image and I believe I understand what you were talking about and have now corrected it: the rear portion of the intestine is now as transparent as the forward part, and the gray shadow can be seen through both. I have also fixed the seams around the p/i valve and between the sections of intestine. The overabundance of curve points appears to be an outcome of Adobe Illustrator CS6 converting the image from an AI file to an SVG-- I tried removing a few of these from the SVG file but then the curves end up needing major corrections all over again (this is not the only thing Illustrator did that wasn't asked for) and I decided the image was going to be better off and much more aesthetic if I did not mess with these any more than I already have done. But let me know if I addressed your points on transparency and on the seams. XOXO KDS444 (talk) 04:29, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that looks fine. There is a small rectangle next to the left end of the scalebar; I'd remove it myself but Inkscape makes the filesize explode for some reason. There is still a seam between the intestines but that is an RSVG bug (the renderer that mediawiki uses). There's a solution (bend out the edge of the lower element) but it's not applicable in this case (topology and transparency). Also the scalebar looks kinda big, can you shrink the text a little?—Love, Kelvinsong talk 14:41, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Fireworks over Ponte Vecchio
  • all by Martin Falbisoner (talk) 09:29, 30 July 2013 (UTC). A few weeks ago, I already successfully nominated another image of fireworks over Ponte Vecchio. Still, imo the current photo deserves a FP nomination in its own right too. The type of explosion and its color are significantly different, creating a distinct atmosphere.

    Thank you for your comment. I had a second (and third) look, but Im still not really convinced. The combination of a very dark and hidden face, and the color does not convince me that it's a really strong concert picture. Sorry. Regards --ArildV (talk) 19:46, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very good quality and composition. Did you use a polarizing filter? The sky in the center of the pano is visibly darker than the edges. --Tuxyso (talk) 17:47, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
  • I did. Need for a correction? --Ximonic (talk) 18:07, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Not for me - IMHO it is good as it is. But it is a bit curious that up to now no one has realized it. Former nomination of mine were regualary critized in cases of irregular brightness distributions on the sky. --Tuxyso (talk) 18:19, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
  • I felt the urge to try a little. I found kind of a handy tool for reducing the dark. Maybe it's less intense. Usually less cloudy situations are a bit more difficult with a filter because the effect can be easier to notice. --Ximonic (talk) 18:30, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
  • The problem is that the angle to the sun and thus the intensity of the polarizing filter changes when you rotate your camera for the panoramic view. To archieve a homogenous brightness distribution you must rotate your polarizing filter after every rotational step. To do that precisely is nearly imposible. I have decided for me to photograph panos without polarizing filter to avoid additional post-processing. I've seen your correction. Better than before. Which tool did you use? Viveza 2? --Tuxyso (talk) 18:49, 29 July 2013 (UTC) --Tuxyso (talk) 18:43, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
  • I opened it in Photoshop and chose a soft brush in divide mode. Then I searched for an appropriate tone of gray for the brush and - as little as enough - used it for the target areas. The brush didn't harm the details, only whitened the dark a bit. Maybe this is a good hint for someone but it has to be used carefully. --Ximonic (talk) 07:49, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question You have a lot of former (successful and good) nominations of the BMW Welt in Munich. I wonder if it is a good idea to give all those BMW photos a prominent place by an FP seal? It is something like free advertising for BMW. I would like to hear other opinions on this question. For sure most of your BMW noms are nice, but the educational value (vs. advertising value) is imho very limited. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:16, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting question.svg Answer Categorizing my pictures as advertising is IMO a blow below the belt. I have also successfully nominated a couple pictures of Mercedes like this one. I just happen to live close to the BMW buildings and they are just fascinating to me. I see them rather as architecture masterworks, visited by millions of people every year, than just advertising. But, don't worry, I will refrain from nominating anything related to them Poco2 19:37, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
    Sorry Poco, probably my words were misunderstanding. I have not categorized your pictures as advertising. Most of them are good or very good architecture shots. My problem is the motive. As far as I know the "BMW Welt" was solely built for representation and advertising purposes. FP means giving those pictures a prominent place on Commons which might be in the case here not a good idea. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:36, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
    Well, I don't really care much about the official purpose of the building, it is one of the nicest modern architecture buildings I have seen. But don't worry, I will bring new subjects in the coming week from a bunch of countries in Asia. Poco2 08:40, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

I see no lack of sharpness. We have here a high resolution picture. I can downsize the image than it will seem even sharper. I see also no problem with the contrast.

            • Looks like color banding to me. CAs can not be more than a few pixels wide, and are necessarily always the same width across a whole part of the photo. It's not possible to have CAs in a small isolated spot, at least not if the lenses aren't horrible messed up. --Julian H. (talk/files) 14:17, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
              • As you are saying those are not CAs maybe. It's maybe a flaw by sensor or low pass filter, in any case a flaw is a flaw. --Laitche (talk) 14:42, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Quality is excellent, I'm slightly torn with my vote because the scene could probably have been captured in a similar way from 1-2 meters further away with slightly less distortion and a little more space around the boat on the right. Also, the dark areas have been brightened quite heavily, I don't think brightening was necessary to that extent. It's definitely a beautiful image though. --Julian H. (talk/files) 12:22, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Counting the votes it's better to keep the current version. Anyway I think the color flaw is more important than some details one, because not really too many people are going to watch this beautiful picture in full resolution, but everbody's going to watch is small version. And anyway the picture is going to be FP, I just want to express my oppose for promoting incorrectly color balanced images. Otherwise it's FP for me --sfu (talk) 20:51, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Die Sache ist, dass im linken Bereich, im Schnee, einige Bereiche relativ scharf abgegrenzt den Farbwert 1 haben (also überbelichtet sind), wobei die Umgebung korrekte Belichtung zeigt (vermutlich, weil der Bereich beim stitchen abgedunkelt wurde). Wenn das möglich ist, wäre es gut, diese abgegrenzten Bereiche ein wenig der Umgebung anzupassen - manche Programme bieten dafür Werkzeuge an, ansonsten kann man es auch eventuell mit einer manuellen Bearbeitung etwas reduzieren. Die Bereiche sind aber nicht groß oder übertrieben auffällig, insofern ist es vielleicht auch ok so wie es ist. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 07:42, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
