Plane wing; control surfaces

I noticed this as the picture of the day on the Polish Wikipedia today and was suprised it was not a featured image here. --03:56, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

SVG version with a more harmonic colour composition. Not a FP candidate.
another vector version. Not a FP candidate.
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support as nom. --Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 03:56, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The decorative text on the wing is pointless and distracting, and the color palette could be more coherent. It also should be SVG. – flamurai 06:49, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I would try making the picture a little more sober (colours, numbers, text in wing,...). I think decoration distracts from the information depicted. Also, the illustration would be more clear with a longer wing.Alvesgaspar 12:36, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Please remove the decorative text and convert it to SVG. The "Wiki Air" on the winglet has basically the same effect as a watermark crediting the Wikis. Zzyzx11 08:39, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support useful diagram. The text on the wing, engines, etc doesn't worry me, after all, real plane wings have it on too. And why should it be turned into svg? Just to make it inaccessible to those who don't have svg-compatible computers? - MPF 19:07, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
    Every SVG is rendered to an PNG by the mediawiki software. If it's an SVG, it's scalable and can be accessed in two ways: as SVG or as rendered PNG. norro 20:20, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
    But only as the thumbnail - you can no longer "Download high resolution version (1024x968, 218 KB)" once it has been converted to svg - MPF 02:12, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
    Of course it there is - you can make image with overscaled size, eg. [[image:Test.svg|10000px]] will give you image 10000px width :) --WarX 10:04, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
    There's no such thing as an "svg-compatible computer". – flamurai 09:32, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Should be SVG. /Daniel78 23:16, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. 1) should be SVG. 2) shouldn't have CC-BY-SA in the image. If you want to put that in metadata that is fine. The signing of the image is creative enough that I don't think I'd oppose for it :O I don't really mind the decorative text. There are various images with 'Wiki' things where a brand name might be. But, I suppose I can see why people might not want it. gren 18:25, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I tried to create a vector version of this image. I used a more harmonic colour palette and removed the text. See thumb at the right. norro 22:54, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I still wouldn't support that. I think illustrations, unless they are technically complex like the piano, should live up to the artistic standards set by Image:Personal computer, exploded 4.svg, especially if they are drawn in anything other than flat perspective. – flamurai 06:52, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Good job, norro. Clearly you put some work into the drawing. Cary "Bastiqe" Bass demandez 14:53, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per above. Would support SVG shown here.--HereToHelp (talk) 01:18, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Excellent job, norro, much better now with a longer wing. But the wing should be rotated, the subject is partially hidden. Alvesgaspar 08:50, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It's great to see the development here... I don't think the last picture (long wing seen from the front) should be turned - it would be enough to see it from a bit a higher point until the now hidden parts can also be seen --Anna reg 18:49, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
    • That's equivalent to rotate the wing along its longitudinal axis. Alvesgaspar 19:43, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Short description

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by David Wilson Clarke - uploaded by User:Überraschungsbilder - nominated by Arad --Arad 14:13, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info An impressive photograph by Dwclarke of Anthony Gormley's most famous creation, the Angel of the North. I particularly like the primary coloured contrast created between the sculpture, the grass and the sky - it reminds me a little of the XP wallpaper "Bliss". The figure also illustrates the size of the sculpture well without being intrusive.
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --Arad 14:13, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support It is a bit low res. Other than that, it is a fantastic picture. --SvonHalenbach 16:38, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support very nice. Can someone please remove the person at the statue's feet? norro 16:45, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral No doubt it's a great shot, but it could benefit from a crop (the angel is facing left, which draws your focus in that direction... all that sky on the right side makes it back heavy), and I do find the person distracting. – flamurai 17:54, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Composition. The subject is looking out of the picture, which draws the viewer's eye out as well.--MichaelMaggs 18:20, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The pic is edited (the page says so) - unfortunately, the light on the buildings is obviously shining in from the left, whereas the brightest area of edited sky is behind, leading to a bad conflict in shadowing. - MPF 18:23, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Well, the sun must be off to the left, but it's that which is producing the shadows, I think, not the brightest area of sky that's visible in the image. The sun is not where the 'brightest area' is. --MichaelMaggs 20:02, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment That's the problem - the sky in the pic is pasted in from another photo (the image page says so), with not enough care on the angle of the light. Given the sun's position off to the left, the area of sky beyond the tower would not (and could not) be bright. - MPF 22:57, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment What a complement. I have a series of 40 or so shots, jpegs and the Nikon Raw the nef with which you could use authentication software to see that other than a slight adjustment in the exposure, and cropping the top and bottom off the photo, it is as it came out of the camera. I did straighten the horizon on the crop as it would look bad tilted. and it had a aircraft light in the back ground I cloned out. otherwise it is as it was. Here is a link to another one out of this series.I love when I take a shot out of the camera and someone does not understand a 30 second exposure will produce great reflections from the water. IN fact here is a link to the untouched original with the aircraft light streak and crooked horizon.http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/Rufustelestrat/SanDiegoNight/DSC_11060002.jpg?t=1164238147 Ted "RUFUS" Ross 23:32, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Two questions to the author: (i) What are the tiny black dots? (ii) Why not a better resolution photo? Wouldn't be too hard to get. Alvesgaspar 15:44, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Black dots: probably noise of the sensor (the full moon is very contrasted and very luminous, difficult for the sensor). Resolution: 1400x1400 it is the maximum with my Nikon D50 for this focal optical. the remainder of the surface of the sensor it is only black exemple full frame --Luc Viatour 16:05, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Better resolution doesn't nessesarily mean better view of the moon, because of the atmosphere. This is one of the best shots you can get from earth with amateur material. It can be improved just by stacking of more pictures together to maximise the contrast. The name should be changed to "fullmoonfromearth.jpg" or something to be more descriptive.--SvonHalenbach 16:30, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

"Over time, featured picture standards change. It may be decided that for some pictures which were formerly 'good enough', this is no longer the case." The Technical quality of this picture is really bad. Besides, featured pictures is not about picking one picture that is better than some others, but it's about what we believe to be the best pictures on commons. -- Gorgo 20:51, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose proportions are off, which makes it look cartoonish. See [1] for a photo from a similar perspective. (another photo) The tube is too thick, the slide is too short, and the curve at the front of the slide is not right... it's not just a simple single-radius curve (should look like [2]). Looks more like an alto trombone than a tenor trombone (as the description says). I understand that these are things non-musicians might not pick up on, but I strongly believe inaccurate images should not be featured. I would support this with modifications, because artistically it's well executed. The artist needs to look at a few more source images instead of just trying to copy an old engraving. – flamurai 22:51, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thank you for your opinion and examples - I tried to fix the problems with front curve and tube. About the length of instrument - of course it was too short. After my expiriences with piano, I think that very wide pictures somtimes doesn't look good in articles, and in general there must by very large size of picture used, to show all details and numbering (please, see below) - so I "cutted" the main slide of trombone, and place the smaller picture of instrument in real proportions.

    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I considered the enlargment of numbers, but I don't think it's very good idea - numbers on image page would be too big. I know, that you probably won't be satisfied - but please note that schemes like this in general have to be used in larger size - because in the default size, smaller elements of picture are hard to see. So, it should be used in articles as wide, as is needed to see the small elements. That's why I "cutted" the instrument, to make the picture not so wide, and why IMO larger numbers are not necessary. Please, look at article about piano on pl-wiki, there are examples (also with small numbers). Orem 16:25, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree. How can pure white (RGB 255,255,255) be overexposed when it is lit by bright sunlight ??? Lycaon 11:22, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment cause there is no pure white in nature or outside enviroment -- Simonizer 11:30, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Representing white in photography is where technical mastery of the medium is shown. The texture of the white could have been shown by making an exposure reading on the white and then adjust exposure to place it in Zone VIII or Zone IX. The shadow areas then would have fallen below the current luminosity range but could have been dodged in order to reduce the range within the image. This is easily resolved when done from the moment the picture is taken. As it stands, the white falls outside the gray scale range. Now, as far as thinking that the wall in reality is represented by RGB 255, 255, 255 is a wrong assumption, if texture can be seen, then it is not pure white. One thing is for our brain to represent something as white, and another thing is for it to be white. Photographically speaking, the wall should be represented as a shade of gray. The wall will never be as white as the sun. Now, that is white!--Tomascastelazo 18:49, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg CommentTomás, this time I must admit you are correct, and I made a silly mistake. I remeasured the colour values of the wall: they are RGB 251, 251, 251 ... a shade of... gray!! Isn't that masterful? ;-) -- Lycaon 20:55, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Lycaon, there is no trick in measuring image values after-the-fact. The real trick is to measure them in situ, adjust exposure and place them in a luminosity value (zone) one wants, that is to say that if converted to a gray scale, the area would show in a particular shade of gray by choice, not where the camera wants. But of course, it is a futile discussion now that technology has replaced old knowledge. Who needs drivers? ;o) --Tomascastelazo 02:35, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg CommentYes, sadly, SVG has become a matter of faith rather than reason. SVG is good, but it is not always better.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose -- Not SVG.  Pabix  10:44, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I really think svg is becoming a cult in Wikipedia. Because I love maps and have been dedicating a considerable time of my life studying, thinking and writing about them, please let me explain why I think the use of svg format in Cartography should be most careful:
  1. A map is conceived and designed with a specific scale, whose choice is determined by the purpose of the representation and conditioned by the availability of accurate data. Traditionally, the positional accuracy of a map is linked to visual resolution. If we take a typical value of 0,2 mm (which is the thickness of a thin line), the corresponding distance on the surface of the Earth depends obviously on the scale of the map: 2m for a scale of 1:10 000, 20m for a scale of 1:100 000, 200m for a scale of 1:1 000 000, etc. The general rule is that the maximum positional error of any object on a map should be, at most, equal to that reference value. This obviously means that for larger scale maps we need more accurate geographic positions. And when we enlarge a map which was designed for a certain scale, say to twice its normal size, we are transmitting a wrong idea about the accuracy of its information.
  2. Another problem is that when we alter the scale of a representation by a factor of “s” we are also altering the available area of that representation by a factor of “s x s”. If we enlarge it, we may end up with too much empty space and/or symbols too large; if we reduce it, the cartographic image may become too small to be readable or, alternatively, cluttered with too much information. The task of adapting the available geographical data to a certain scale (and to a certain purpose) is not a trivial task and it is known as cartographic generalization.
  3. To defend that all maps in Wikipedia should be scalable just because this kind of format is better for editing and printing is to condition a fundamental issue (the cartographic quality) to a secondary one. It is not enough that a svg image has some “nominal” scale, because nothing forces the user to print the map in that scale. In my opinion, scale bars are not enough: the principal scale of all maps designed to be printed should be part of the written cartographic information.
This is, of course, "preaching in the desert". If I'm lucky maybe the next reviewer will think better before just repeating "oppose, should be svg". Alvesgaspar 12:00, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
PS - In the presente case using a scalable repreentation wouldn't be a serious mistake, provided the lettering and symbols were readable. The reason is in this type of map (a cartogram) the property to be conserved is the topoloy of the objects, not their absolute (geographic) or relative positions. Alvesgaspar 14:36, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose should be SVG. And your last scentence comes across pretty arrogantly Alves. --Dschwen 14:07, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
    • In any case it would be nice if a vector-version could be provided. --Dschwen 21:30, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Although I'm very much an SVG supporter, I can see reason in Alvesgaspar's arguments: maps may prove an exception to the rule (there may be others with decent arguments).

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not SVG. Point taken about maps and SVG. However if you want to say, print out a copy of this map twice as big as the file, it's going to be pixelated. As display devices get better and better, older png and jpg diagrams are going to get smaller and smaller. Alvesgaspar may have a point as for high-quality maps, to a certain extent, but here it doesn't matter if say, "line G" is exactlly properly placed. It's a schema after all.. what matters is how the lines connect. So until this wonderful image is converted into an SVG, I'm going to have to oppose. --Zantastik 23:16, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg CommentAgree with AngMoKio. Can't see neither the zoo nor the unnatural background. I don't like the bird's look, and know this is not the best pic to show the anatomy of the pelecan (not even the whole beak can be seen) but we need a pic of this typical position of the with its beak on its chest. Image:White Pelican, Pelecanus onocrotalus 4, JBP, Nov 06.JPG has a fuller view but the angle in this picture is better. --Javierme 18:49, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I wouldn't stir it neither. Just a pity the background is so 'busy', H. lunulata is not the easiest of 'models'.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There is a regular pattern, more visible in the background, suggesting this is a copy of a printing rather than a photo of the original. Also, the focus is not perfect. It is an interesting painting though. I'm not sure what kind of tool the man is handling (a hammer?) but it looks quite heavy and menacing... Alvesgaspar 09:00, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The name, Der Holzfaeller, means the lumberjack; so, this is probably a tool of that trade. Perhaps an axe, though it seems not... I am thinking this might be a large, levred plane, used to cut the logs into roughly rectilinear shapes, like a giant Draw Knife? Menacing and heavy indeed.. Stephen.job 04:21, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

      • Of course yes, but then: what shows this animation: principles from course of general physics or real life? (assumption about elastic collision is not enough to have no wiggles - it must be ideally central too)--WarX 11:06, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

    Just because you know you have animations off doesn't mean that you can know when a blank space is part of an animation.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Please read the guidelines before submiting your works and take some time looking at the existing featured pictures. This photo does not meet the minimum criteria for FP: trivial composition (no foreground to give depth), very noisy image. If you want some feedback and advice for your pictures, quality image candidates and Photography critiques are good places to start with. Alvesgaspar 13:10, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose this is a very nice picture, but a tiny bit too blurry to be FP. Maybe with sacrifying some of the Resolution to make it special? I love the coloring. --SvonHalenbach 15:15, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
    • You are quite right, here is a downsampled version, very slightly adjusted. Do you think I should substitute the old one? Alvesgaspar 15:54, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

    • I'm really not sure about the species (the genus is no doubt Osteospermum), it might be a hybrid cultivar. This is called in my country an "African Daisy". Alvesgaspar 23:14, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
  • I don't know what the opposers have against this pic. It is perfectly nice enough to be nominated as a FP. The colors are just wonderful. What do you expect from a flower? --SvonHalenbach 23:06, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question How was this image obtained? The focus in the upper and lower parts are unequal, suggesting that a camera was used. What about the colours, are they like the original or were slightly adjusted (they seem weird)? Also, there is a tilt in the upper part which is not apparent in the lower part. I'm asking all these questions because I like this map very much ("New and much rigorous(?) city of S. Petersburg in Russia... Wow !). Alvesgaspar 21:54, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Not disturbed by the colours which can reflect cartography usage of the time. Not disturbed either by "tilt" or "focus" defects which again, can stem from the original print itself (the lines on carts could be hand drawn and ink could spill out (we say in French that the ink "drools"). --Diligent 09:39, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
