    If you mean the bottom right corner: This is really a strech limo, I can upload a crop out of original image if you don't believe. --P e z i (talk) 10:08, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
No, I could see that, but just to its left is a hatchback that looks unnaturally long. I also see it in the clouds near the top. Daniel Case (talk) 04:17, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
The Alfa Romeo looks natural to me. Also the entrance of the building in the back. For the clouds: Let's take into consideration that is a wideangle shot (14mm @ full frame) with perspective correction. And the top of the building to the right is shaped like it looks; compare File:Raiffeisenzentrale-DSC 0603w.jpg --P e z i (talk) 10:06, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
I figured that was what the top of the building looked like. However, I still both the Alfa and the limo look distorted, as do the leaves above them, and the clouds near the top of the image. Daniel Case (talk) 05:25, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose not a really good composition: the cars but especially the lamps and the road sign in the far left edge is disturbing, the distortions in the edges are to strong here and I see nothing special about this picture --Wladyslaw (talk) 07:09, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I am also not fully convinced of the composition, but balancing vote due to formulation "very bad composition". BTW: Could you please clarify Pava, what is "very bad" and give the uploader some hints what he can do better? Nonetheless light and image quality is at a very high level thus a support vote is justified. To the composition: The crop is carefully choosen, for me two aspects are slightly distracting but cannot changed by the photographer: The street lamps do not integrate well into the composition. Their position on the glass front seems to be somehow random to me. The street signs at the very left bottom are distracting. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:39, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment thanks for your review though! What makes this image special in my eyes is the fact that it shows how one of Munich's prime monuments becomes a popular hill for going sledding during winter. This also elucidates the special connection between Münchner and their English Garden. And from a formal point of view: I like the diagonal created by the people on the hill. But I guess I'm biased, both as the photographer of this image and as a Münchner. ;-) --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 10:24, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

  • {{Oppose}} Per above. —Mono 02:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
    • To the "wow" (cannot change your personal Wow perception) - but for me motive and background have enough wow - it's not an everyday shot (at least not for me) To the colors: I see no reason to artifically pimp the colors here. As the King pointed out: the day was cloudy, and the diffuse light and the structure of the clouds helps to bring out the surface of the yachts. I really like the soft light and soft colors in the clouds and on the landscape, further post-processing would destroy it. The light comes from my back and imho well lightens the scenery. @Amada44: Although it is technically possible to increase the contrast ratio of an image it does not necessarily help to preserve the mood of a photo (as your editing of Mono Lake) and to reflect the moment accurately as possible. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:25, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
      • @Tuxyso No, I don't think that increasing the contrast would improve the image. If the sun would have come out then I think you would have got a perfect featured image. Everything else in the image looks good. Just they lack of yellows an red from direct sunlight makes the image look a bit flat. Amada44  talk to me 08:31, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
        • Amada44, thanks for your clarification. Especially for negative votes it is always beneficial for everyone to write a more detailed comment (as your last one). I guess (if King said) that with direct sunlight the whites of the yachts would have been problematic. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:48, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

You even see structures in the grass and the single stripes from der American flag at the pier - so what is unsharp? This is an non-downscaled version in full sensor resolution.

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral The light is very nice, especially the interesting black-white contrast between ship and sky. But two aspects are disturbing for me (one fixable, one not): 1. I would definitely crop out the part of the red ship at the very right which moves out of the photo. 2. Your shooting position is not optimal considering the background: The office tower at the right is nice, but parts of the ship hide an important church of Hamburg, the St. Catherine's Church. The best placement would be between tower and church. --Tuxyso (talk) 18:05, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Ja, sehr gut, I remember this one. --Ivar (talk) 18:35, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment i agree about the red ferry, it is disturbing. I would propose a crop. I think that the shooting position was the only possible, I have not been in Hamburg for many year. But as I rember, it's very difficult to find possible locations to take photos from on the south side of the river, and I (looking at the satellite image) see no option to take a picture from a better angle from a public place.ArildV (talk)

    FYI: The "sea" is the river Elbe at Hamburg and the flat water is the proverbial "calm before the storm". Darkness comes from a rising thunderstorm and was the mood I tried to catch. Composition couldn't be influenced very much if you look at georeference. And for the last point: You are right, I should have cleaned up the pier before taking a photo of the ship :) --P e z i (talk) 18:23, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

    • Sorry, but both photos are not compareable. Please keep your comparisions fair. 1. different motive 2. much higher resolution of my photo (3,1 Mpx vs. 16 Mpx).
      @Alchemist: IMHO the slight blurr underlines the movement of the people through the Canyon. The man stands at the edge of the photo - find it somehow interesting. My ultra wide angle lens was with 10mm at its maximum. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:22, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
      • Also sorry, but what isn't fair? The image is IMO not accommodate and the composition poor. This main point can't be compensate by a higher resolution.

Michelangelo's Pietà

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This new version of the Michelangelo's Pietà, one of the marvels on the human genius IMO. I know that we already have a Featured Picture of the same subject, but it is now a bit old (2008), and a bit small. The nominated version has double size. It seems to have a sufficient quality (better than the already feaured version IMO). Those who know the place know also how it is difficult to take such a photograph, without tripod nor flash, and through a glass...-- Jebulon (talk) 18:21, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment --The contrast of the edited version is better but why did you clone out the lights' reflects?

    • overexposition.--Jebulon (talk) 20:54, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
      • That's what I thought: it's only my opinion but I think they are perfectly acceptable because these burned areas are small, natural in respect of the glossy marble and the lightning condition (this is not a studio shot!) and I prefer them to a not so well cloned alternative. Did you shoot it in Raw? Sting (talk) 21:38, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Perspectives to remove : drawing marble at right and the marble at left are leaning out a little bit. And also CAs (see notes) Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:58, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
    • CAs on horizontal lines? No, and I doubt it's focus fringing. May be the color cast of a different color-balanced light, probably a window visible in the reflect of Christ's left leg. See for example the blue patch at the extreme lower-right corner, as well as in several shadows. Sting (talk) 21:22, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
    • En effet, merci Sting. On voit d'ailleurs un peu de reflet bleu dans le coin inférieur droit. Pour la perspective, je ne vois pas l'erreur, ça me parait bon, compte tenu de ce que je ne suis pas pile en face de l'œuvre, il y a forcément un effet de profondeur. Pour les reflets, je peux essayer d'utiliser les deux images par empilement des couches. Profiter à la fois des bons reflets et du meilleur contraste. Ça vous irait ?--Jebulon (talk) 21:50, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
      • Si tu as pris la photo en Raw et si tu l'acceptes, envoie-moi ce fichier et j'essayerai de l'améliorer avec DxO. Mais à mon avis la majorité de ces reflets sont brûlés ce qui personnellement ne me pose aucun problème dans le cas de cette photo parce que c'est naturel et n'est pas un défaut technique. L'autre FP est d'ailleurs pareil. Une erreur àma serait de les supprimer ou pire de les rendre gris. Sting (talk) 22:49, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

    • When looking at the picture at full size and presuming the background wall has been well constructed, you will in fact notice the photograph is (very) slightly CW rotated (but the lines are parallel). So it is the lower-left structure which is in reality and on location as well as the only one in the picture leaning leftwards. See notes I added. Sting (talk) 13:50, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

  • The subject / object of a photo is always part of assesments on FPC (impressive landscape vs. boring landscape). Beneath light and composition a lot of wow comes from the subject itself. If a subject is in no way appealing for me I surely oppose - as it was the case here. There is a red line for me when photo glorify the usage of weapons and war - as it is undoubtlessly the case here. Saffron Blaze, the diversity of opinions of users with different culturual backgrounds should not be condemned but appreciated with regard to the international orientation of Commons. For some people nudity is a red line, for others (like me) the glorification of war and so called Best Warriors --Tuxyso (talk) 08:36, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Looks like a good photo of the training that goes into preparing for war. It seems you hate war (as any rational person should) so you will oppose anything military, unless of course it shows them doing something horrific. I think that is an awkward position to make when we are supposed to celebrate excellence in photography as opposed to making political statements. 131.137.245.206 14:48, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Nothing against war and soldiers, I've been a soldier and now I'm part of the military reserve force of my country. But if we learn to the "Best Warriors" to stay on a point heightened in the middle of the night under a projector, what we teach to the worst soldiers : to dance the lambada on battlefields. It is not a real war scene, it is a direction and it is not credible. Nothing againts the photographer but I see nothing captivating in the composition and absolutely no encyclopaedic interest.

Cosmography by Claudius Ptolemy, including 27 maps by Claus Clausson Swart.
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Ptolemy, DJVU file created, uploaded and nominated by Yann (talk) 22:05, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I think this is an exceptionel document (manuscript of 454 pages). This book was the reference of the known world in the Roman Empire. Its rediscovery in Florence around 1400 lead to a new interest about geography, finally leading to the travels of Colombus and Magellan. This copy of the Latin translation by Jacobus Angelus was commissioned by Guillaume Fillastre, cardinal of Saint Marc, and the book bears his arms. This unique examplar includes 27 maps by a Danish cartographer, Claudius Claussøn Swart. IMHO, the Cosmography by Claudius Ptolemy is one of the book who has the most influence over the whole human History.

Many a times it feels, that there is too much emphasis on quality (The reference always used for argument is Commons images may be used for high quality printing and other high resolution media purposes). Well, I would like to get some statistics on how many of these FPs are actually being used by People and Establishments in the above-mentioned way. That would help us call a spade, a spade. I think we need a serious revision of the FPC Criteria, nowadays many images with average and no "wow" getting promoted just because there's tons of resolution, taken in broad daylight or used softwares amply to correct every flaws noticed out of pixel-peeping. I tend to get confused with the definition of what is featurable, because in almost all other well-known sites, emphasis is given on photographic creativity. --Dey.sandip (talk) 11:40, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

It seems to be placed randomly. And the buildings round the base of the tower (which belong architecturally together) are cut of. Sorry, nice mood but from EV and composition this picture is not very extraordinary. --Wladyslaw (talk) 21:32, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thank you both for your comments. The problem is that it is impossible to see all buildings round the base of the tower, as it is not possible to stand at the edge of the building. Please see this picture. I uploaded a new version with the building in the middle. I dont know how to reconstruct the sky.--ArildV (talk) 06:02, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment To add some sky wouldn't be a big deal. This I could make for you, but the cut of basement is IMO the real problem of this picture. I am convinced that the conditions on this outlook level was not good, but this explanation can't convince me to support this image. I guess this problem could be solved by making two images and stitch them together. --Wladyslaw (talk) 07:40, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for your offer regarding the sky! The second problem is probably impossible to solve; since it is not possible to see all of the surrounding buildings from the terrace. To do that you have to climb out on the roof (which is not allowed to do), the railing on the roof blocking the view from the terrace. Just to be clear, I'm just trying to explain the circumstances. I'm not trying to convince you to to change your vote. I understand your opinions.--ArildV (talk) 07:56, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

    • What do you mean by "treatment of the water"? What is wrong with it? I have not "treated" the water but just visualized the flow of the water. Pictogram voting info.svg Info The flow speed of the water at this position is quite fast because under the bridge I am standing on there is a large weir system. The motive is the old town of Kettwig (nowadays a district of the city of Essen) which is directly located at the river Ruhr. If you look into the history there is a close relationship between Kettwig and its former textile industry and the river Ruhr. Thus this photo is imho a very good illustration of Kettwig. For me sharpness is OK (take a look on the resolution). I think not every photo must be 36 Mpx from D800 or a stitching. --Tuxyso (talk) 15:56, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg weak oppose The detail quality is very good, the colors are also good. Despite the high quality, the crop is imho too unfortunate: 1. the crop is too tight at the left and right. Most problematic at the seats around the fountain. 2. the crop in not symmetrical at the wall. On the right I had also cropped at the middle of the third window. But if I look in 100% view there seems to be something you cropped out there which results in such a tight crop. Positive: The relative position of entry and middle of the fountain is good. --Tuxyso (talk) 21:22, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

The idea of the bench in the front is good, but the contrast between the shadow and the strong light in the back is not. The green wires on the left are hugly. The pipe in the right is also disturbing. Yann (talk) 14:16, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Lack of contrast, lack of details/excessive blur in a lot of parts because of uncontrolled use of surface blur (or equivalent), not enough control of the DoF which doesn't make the main flower “pop up” from the background, the whole picture is flat/washed out because the main flower is almost lit backwards while there's a partially bright background.

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because nothing is sharp. Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way.

Weil am Rhein: Vitra House, entrance area
  • color balance is given, the lamps are blasting yellowly --Wladyslaw (talk) 11:58, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Uninteresting composition. White-balance wrong (yes, the lamps are yellow, that's why we have controls to fix the white balance, just as our eyes do). The JPG is lacking colourspace -- whatever you are using to edit/save this JPG, it isn't up to standard and unsuitable for photographic work. A colourspace is an integral part of a JPG otherwise the image viewer has no means to determine what colour to use. -- Colin (talk) 12:26, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Here is nothing to fix. We are creating picture of EV and not art pictures. If the lamps are yellow we don't have to "correct" s.th., this is just the reality. Your pure assumption that here is a wrong colourspace is a very strange argumentation --Wladyslaw (talk) 13:06, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
White-balance and JPG colourspace are separate issues. Your JPG has both faults. The correct white-balance for an image is a matter of judgement. I assume your picture is taken at night so there is no daylight in the scene. The eye would naturally adjust for yellow light and render the colours "correctly". Sometimes a picture benefits from retaining the tungsten yellow of lamps but imo this one does not and the wall and and white paintwork are rendered a sickly colour. As for your file lacking a defined colourspace, I suggest you read up more on this. What software are you using to save the file? -- Colin (talk) 13:32, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

    IMO the photos are significantly different; this one is taken just as the sun is starting to rise, while the other one is taken right in the middle of the golden hour. And composition-wise, they are taken in different directions of different tufas and different mountains (in particular, this photo emphasizes the contrast between the tufa in the foreground and the illuminated mountains in the background, while in the other one the sole focus is the tufa and its reflection). --King of ♠ 22:25, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose From my current research we have a serious copyvio problem here. I asked the German copyvio experts for further help. I will change to neutral or weak oppose if everything is fine with the image. To the image: Not a brilliant one: As already mentioned the scaffolding is disturbing and the large photography in front of the building distracts from the architecture of the building. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:31, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
    • Your "reserch" is based on a non juristic book with a disputable conclusion made by yourself. I guess an advocate which is involved day to day with this questions is more authentic than any self-appointed "copyvio expert". In fact this smells very strong to be a revenge-contra for this. --Wladyslaw (talk) 07:57, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
      • No personal accusation please - probably I should ask some admins for help. I am free in my opinion and on the time I express it. During my research on the copyvio I looked serveral times on your photo and saw new aspectcs I did not really like on your photo - e.g. the distraction of symmetry by the large photo in front - what's the problem with that? Please respect my opinion. One aspect of my oppose was already mentioned five days before - so keep calm. IMHO the copyvio problem should be resolved in consensus with the community. I guess your lawyer decided rather technically than considering your motive. This is not only a judicial problem but a photographic question. The photograph in front of the building surely belongs to the motive. But please let's discuss it on the appropriate place. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:11, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
        • please do not discuss on two pages for the same stuff, I didn't accuse anybody here, so stay calm and do not assume my advocate wouldn't know the arguable image. I asked intrinsic for this image. --Wladyslaw (talk) 08:20, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A very nice image and apt lighting. Presence of ghosting is very minor and is not disturbing. --Dey.sandip (talk) 07:28, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
    ... but to eliminate the ghosts is a small work for a good software, for example: like Photomatix 4.x.
    It's not possible to eliminate the ghosting. Photomatix only removes the ghosts that are caused by duplication between the different exposures of the same frame. However, the ghosts in this image are caused by long exposure and cannot easily be removed. Diliff (talk) 10:10, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
    Ha, it is also simple to eliminate the ghosts: take 2-3 shots and mask the peaple out. I think you know it too ;-) --Alchemist-hp (talk) 19:35, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
    Yes, I do... But this photo was already 24 separate exposures and it was extremely difficult to find any time at all when people weren't coming up or down the stairs. I was also standing in the same position that many other photographers wanted to stand to take their photos so I was under pressure to give them 'their turn'. ;-) I didn't think it was necessary to remove all the ghosts. Diliff (talk) 01:15, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I'm missing also the info: how it is made: I think it is also an HDR image. Please add the infos: exposure time(s), like here. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 08:01, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment why not? There are many precedents, e.g. this one --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 10:14, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
Also, I don't think they are so similar. The angle of view is different (mine is considerably wider), as is the lighting/HDR processing. Each show the same subject but quite differently. Diliff (talk) 10:37, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
@Martin Falbisoner: That is a very rare case. But, here I agree with Diliff; the lighting make them very different. JKadavoor Jee 15:41, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 10:14, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Technically it is considerably better than the other nomination/FP: the lighting is handled better, the image is sharper while slightly higher resolution, and the verticals are straight. I also prefer the composition here (in the other, the hand rail dominated) and the extra width brings in another section of ceiling and two side galleries.
