    Hi fir0002. Please nominate them singly. It's nearly not possible to count the votes when mixed like here. Thanks, norro 19:14, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support the first. Lightness of the shadows is perfectly ok on my monitor. In the second picture I don't like the cropped hill top. In the third the compostition makes prominent the telegraph pole, and both are boring compared to the first one. --Wikimol 16:11, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

sorry Wikimol but the edit version is really splendid. no? Tatoute 23:06, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
There is lenghty discussion about it at en:Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Notre-Dame de Montréal Basilica. If you want my opinion, the edit does no good to both the atmosphere and realism of the photo ...obviously I would support it if it was the only version. You may say I have double standard - which is absolutely true. When voting in FPC I usualy compare the candidate with what else is availiable on the subject. (Which is also why I have different demands on a FPC eg. of the Statue of Liberty and FPC of a volcanic eruption) --Wikimol 00:13, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support the original only. I just want to add my two cents. I'm the original photographer of this image and I feel that the edit is inaccurate and doesn't express the same atmosphere that the original does. Sure, it appears prettier and more striking and to some lifts the dark shadows, but I don't think that is something we should mess with. There are some situations where a photo is obviously in need of alteration to recreate the aesthetics of being there, but as I was there and I KNOW the basilica was dark and selectively artificially lit at the front, and there WAS a stark contrast between the dark and light. The edit removes this contrast and at the expense of accuracy. Diliff 02:18, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

As for arguments about the photographer's wishes, has he been notified? I left a msg on his talk, just in case. Perhaps he likes the edited version. - Samsara 12:10, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The fog is not a very reliable feature but, anyway, when having a look to the main patches of fog in the original pic with the Gimp guidelines (which are totally parallel to the top of the pic), one can see that they are in different levels (a logical thing in such a hilly environment, by the way). I edited three pictures rotating the original 0,5; 0,75 and 2 degrees anti-clockwise and then I checked the fog with the guidelines again. It's then when the fog seems to be going up from left to right. Check it yourselves. If it finally had to be edited, I wouldn't rotate it more than 0'3 degrees. The other similar pictures Rafael did support this view. The so-called sloping is just an optical effect. Given the fact that this picture is likely to be used for encyclopedic (and not artistic or aesthetic) purposes, my "ballot" goes for the non edited version. --Piolinfax 15:30, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

    • I don't think there was much camber on the track, but looking at the the telegraph pole that should be vertical (or approximately so). As for why the train was there, the ECML was closed between Newcastle and Edinburgh for engineering works of some sort so they were diverted via Carlisle (about 2 hours longer I think they were quoting. Virgin XC gave up at Newcastle). Thryduulf 23:36, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

  • To be honest, i do. As the person who was there, I feel that the original version is more accurate to real life. While, for artistic merit, the color fixed version is nicer, in terms of the wikipedia entry it is linked to, i feel it is better to have it more accurate as apposed to looking better. Unununium272 22:08, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
    Thats why I asked. When looking on picture it's hard to say what's due to reality and what's because of the capture. To me the edit looked ok, but as you were there, you know better :)--Wikimol 22:39, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

      • No, but IMO here the cropping serves a pourpouse and this way it is more aesthetically pleasing. Now the main subject is in the golden section and the flower is supressed by compostion to the role of "environment". IMO its in 99% better to have one clear subject than two or more, and this compostion is more interesting than the "default macro" centered compostion. --Wikimol 17:29, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

    Comment: I believe the speed of animated gifs is often dependent on the user's browser, regardless of what speed the creator has set. I think IE used to have quite a slow "max" speed, whereas Firefox actually follows what the file has set, so images that used to look OK in IE often look awful in Firefox. pfctdayelise 14:47, 22 January 2006 (UTC)
    Hmmm, speed is given by the delays between the single pictures. I doubt that current browsers (like IE, FF for example) ignore that. The duration of one loop of this animation is not even one second, when i look at it with Firefox or Konqueror. norro 20:27, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

The building was planned and executed at some time between late 1950s and early 60s (wp article on Oscar Niemeyer does not give the exact date). Many of the architectural details are typical of this period. Samsara 12:31, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

I fail to see how this has anything to do with pedophilia. It's only a picture of 2 kids. And how is it vulgar and in bad taste? --65.95.201.142 04:08, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
This has nothing to do with pedophilia, I was merely mocking both the usual chant of people who would, say, see a teddy bear on an image depicting grow-ups making love, and the fascination for "childish innocence". That said, I consider the image vulgar because there are gazillions of postcards showing precisely this, all of them being certain that they are very cute, and most, if not all of them, being very wrong. Vulgarity is just this: doing exactly what others do, because they do it, without thinking any further. Children kissing are not cute, they are sticky. Rama 01:07, 1 February 2006 (UTC)
I think the word you're looking for is cliché or kitsch, but I don't see how this picture in particular is very wrong. --64.231.212.208 07:39, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Do we believe that this soldier was touched by the experience, that he had the deep feelings (gratitude, reflection on his own sacrificial position) implied?

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't think that this is really illustrative. There are several effects mixed, so it does not show the influence of JPEG-compression, because the layman can't seperate it from the influence of resizing, and colour-correction. Furthermore you would need to see the original picture, to evaluate the effects. Btw: I like the paradoxical fact, that this is an PNG, to illustrate JPEG-arteacts ;) norro 17:09, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

How can you tell the colour of my lamp? -:) Seriously - the colour is intended, because the luminosity of the lamp is reduced to enhance its visibility. This reduction means a decrease in ratiation temperature and therefore a redshift according to the laws of physics. Apart from this, the topic of my picture is not the flourescent lamp but the segmental reflection with leads to the (at least for me) attractive effect of repetition. Roger McLassus 09:58, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
Ehrmmm... "redshift" is something else (check the wikilink). And it's only incandescent lamps that get really reddish when dimmed. This is fluorescent, right? I bet the color is more due to the color temperature setting on your camera. --Janke | Talk 08:56, 11 February 2006 (UTC)
Your reply made it clear to me that I misformulated what I wanted to say. I didn't manipulate the lamp itself, only its apparent luminosity by selecting a very short exposure time. By the way: I didn't mean the redshift of the Wikipedia-article (I am a physicist myself and quite familiar with this concept). The word "redshift" has more meanings, some of which you find listed under red shift, but the use of one or the other spelling is rather arbitrary. Roger McLassus 15:34, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Ummm, are we now voting on paintings from the 19th century?!--Lumijaguaari (моє обговорення) 03:09, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
There are plenty of featured pictures already that are old maps or diagrams or other non-photographic images. Why wouldn't we vote on a 19th century lithographic, if it's interesting, attractive, and historically significant? It's about to become a FP on English Wikipedia, 14 to 0.--Ragesoss 05:03, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
Ok well it's just that there's a ton of lovely lovely paintings here on Commons by the great masters and the not-so-well-known masters - would it be okay to start nominating them or will the angry mob crush me if I do? Well, not that I am absolutely going to, now that I think of it - it's kind of pointless, isn't it... oh well. --Lumijaguaari (моє обговорення) 02:54, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
I would certainly be likely to support such images, if they are hi-res and high quality. But I'm pretty new to this process; maybe there really is a policy or consensus against that/this kind of thing.--Ragesoss 05:04, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is a typical encyclopedic illustration of its era. Beautiful lithography! --Janke | Talk 08:52, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Before I decide I'd like to learn about these horizontal lines in the centre. Are they scanner-artefacts or part of the picture? Since only one of the many objects on the picture is scratched in this way, they probabely were already on the scanned print. But they make no sense to me. Calderwood 09:41, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
Yes, they are either artifacts of the original lithographic process or actually part of the original template. In any case, they are not scanner artifacts (and neither is the diagonal pattern that can be seen when you view it at full resolution)--Ragesoss 18:04, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
Upon further investigation, I found that other scans elsewhere, from other copies, also have those horizontal lines.--Ragesoss 03:08, 11 February 2006 (UTC)
You know, the techniques used for lithography were truly amazing, sometimes a dozen stone plates were prepared for as many printing colors, and the artist had to do the colour separation in his mind! The lines are the actual handiwork of the artist - sometime they used tools, like finely toothed steel knives, to scratch in details of their design. --Janke | Talk 08:40, 11 February 2006 (UTC)
