  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral The picture has probably been taken so close to the Earth that it got a fish eye like effect which, in this case, makes the USA look quite enormous compared to the apparent "diameter" of the Earth seen here.

What comes to the picture itself, it is really beautiful and detailed... But..! --Ximonic (talk) 07:01, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
Because the satellite seems to be named as Suomi which means Finland (even though it was named after Verner E. Suomi) they should take this kind of fish eye picture where Finland fills the entire half of globe. :-) Let's talk about false impression after that... --Ximonic (talk) 07:08, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- Ximonic is right, the picture has probably been taken so close to the Earth that a substancial part of the visible hemisphere is "behind the horizon". Take the Earth representation in Google Earth and imagine cropping the image with a smaller circle. The result is similar to the present picture.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment and Symbol support vote.svg Support -- I can't understand the animosity against this image. This is not a fisheye effect at all! When looking at a sphere you only see (almost) a full hemisphere when you are very, very far from it. The closer you are the less you see. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:03, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
    • I think what is meant by "fish-eye effect" and "distortion" is not that is "artificial" use of a special lens, but that is a very particular perspective, in contrast to the ones we are used to, taken from further away and which are closer to the projections used in mapping. The problem I see is that it does not provide any significant advantage in terms of major additional detail in the centre, while reducing the overview. Furthermore, the distinction from the "standard" perspectives is here ambiguous as some of the usual conventions are kept (i.e. north upwards), and thus the viewers are confused, as well demonstrated above. --ELEKHHT 20:34, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
      • Let them be confused, they will undestand and maybe learn something then - isn't this a purpose of the project? Of course the description of file should explain this. --sfu (talk) 22:47, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
        • I believe a good image should be self-explanatory. For instance here is clear for anybody that the image is from close-distance (while the description is also more precise). My other argument illustrated, is that I find a good overview more educational. --ELEKHHT 00:13, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
          • I don't believe so. I think description is needed sometimes. --sfu (talk) 07:14, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
            • Alves you are right with the distance, but it suggests that you see the whole (half) globe, but it isn't so. -- -donald- (talk) 08:08, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Jes. People. It really looks that way if you are close to the surface. You can only see full hemisphere if you are far enough from the surface. Being very strictl you can only see full hemisphere while being in infinite distance from the sphere. Plese read the: en:Horizon, please. --sfu (talk) 22:29, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment A shot from the moon is far less than infinite. It would be good enough, no need to go to infinity. It gives a perfectly precise enough idea of what the continents and landmasses sizes are, compared to the total size of the earth. We are not arguing technical facts, fisheye distortions and crazy calculation stuff here, as I've understood. We are just opposing because when a person opens the file gets a wrong proportion of the landmasses, which is not very helpful for an encyclopedia. If I were a learning kid and looked at this picture I'd get confused (what the heck, is the north pole in the grand canyon?? Is California the opposite of Ushuaia? Are Asia plus Europe smaller than America????). Problem here is, that this stitched pano's contour is round, coinciding with the earth roundness. Had it been a circular sector, there would have been no problem. But the file, as it is, is misleading, no matter what we say. It is an extremely cool panoramic image, but it gives more wrong information than it gives right. --Paolo Costa (talk) 05:42, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
    • Once again, bacause I have a slight impression that you are trying too suggest it's arifficial: if you where on this height above Mexico as the satellite you would see exacly the same. The fact that it looks that way is a very strage indeed, and that is why it's worth to show it to the people. Of course the decription have to be changed, as now it doesn't mention the word horizon, nor the height of the satellite above the ground. Give people something confusing, and explain to then. Are you really stucked in showing people nice but not surprising views and animals? If look at the picture more carefully you will see that the atmosphere is very thick in it. That's because the satellite was close to the surface. Everything fits, it looks that way. What have to be changed is the description, which should mention the approximate height of the satellite and the link to horizon. It's disturbing, it's true, Great! Then that's what we want (with a good description)! Ok, I'll try to make the description today. --sfu (talk) 07:11, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Nearly Full Moon

Name and description of file purports to show a full moon. In fact, the moon shown is not a full moon, so should not be a featured picture illustrating a full moon. Suggest another picture showing an actual full moon would be a better candidate for a featured picture.

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm not sure if there is a way to withdraw my nomination, but I've changed my vote. Meanwhile, I've also emailed the author, who has a much better camera now and possibly could simply replace the picture with a better one, which would satisfy some of the criticisms when originally featured.Victor Engel (talk) 22:02, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

It's wrong for it to be used as an example of a full moon picture. That's what I would like to correct, but I'm not sure how to accomplish that. Delisting it is one step toward that direction.Victor Engel (talk) 22:32, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It is a Featured Picture because of the quality of the image, it wasn't featured because it was of a full moon, that is irrelevant to its featured status. You are quite welcome to correct the descriptions and captions wherever they occur, and even request a rename of the file. But your reason for delisting appears to be that you think it is easier to delist than bother to correct what you see as a problem. --Tony Wills (talk) 19:30, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg CommentIt would be nice if I could receive some constructive comments. Did you follow the link posted to the comment you replied to? Did you see that the picture is listed there as a featured full moon picture? Note that this is the first time I've dealt with modifying the status of an existing wikimedia commons entry, so this is new ground for me. Rather than criticize what I'm doing, instructing me what I SHOULD do would be more helpful. I have not followed all the links to this picture, but I suspect there are a number of pages that use this picture to illustrate a full moon. If those pages are to be corrected to reference another picture (there are plenty out there), what is the best way to do that?Victor Engel (talk) 20:22, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

    • Why? --LC-de (talk) 18:47, 2 February 2012 (UTC)
      • It is good to show detail through the whole image in an encyclopedic picture. Blur is good for artistic pics, but sharpness is necessary here. It depends on the use of the image. --Paolo Costa (talk) 12:18, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
        • Not at all. It depends on the photographer's decision. It's hard for me to understand what makes you believe that the whole object should be in focus. Using that shallow depth of field and having this bokeh was created intentionally. Using a larger aperture would provide insufficient optical resolution and therefore less sharpness. The faded label does not provide a distinct sharpness. Yet one can estimate the focal point when looking at the Mummia atop of the box. Regards, PETER WEIS TALK 21:21, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

The Helix Nebula
The Helix Nebula (also known as The Helix, NGC 7293, or Caldwell 63) is a large planetary nebula (PN) located in the constellation Aquarius. The Helix has often been referred to as the Eye of God on the Internet, since about 2003.
With a resolution 16,000 × 16,000 and a filesize 37.15 246.9 MB this is one of the best (if not the best) images of the Helix nebula.
Image was nominated before but I do feel it deserves another go given the upload of improved version by Tryphon since the nominaiton.
Other image (featured)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Wahhhh. Amazing! But wait, I can see HUGE pixels... so what are those 37 Mb for if resolution is not that good in the end? Takes hours to open, but I could open in 10 sec a similar file with almost the same res I think, am I wrong? --Paolo Costa (talk) 04:01, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
  • It is not the same image. Compared to the 2004 version (the other image) way more effort was given to the creation of this image due to a meteor storm so it is more accurate I believe. You'll notice old image has more "red" and colors are actually off in other ways as well.
Story: "Valuable Hubble observing time became available during the November 2002 Leonid meteor storm. To protect the spacecraft, including HST's precise mirror, controllers turned the aft end into the direction of the meteor stream for about half a day. Fortunately, the Helix Nebula was almost exactly in the opposite direction of the meteor stream, so Hubble used nine orbits to photograph the nebula while it waited out the storm. To capture the sprawling nebula, Hubble had to take nine separate snapshots."
  • Mind that the source image is a 285.99 MB TIFF file which unfortunately isn't as easy to carry to Wikipedia. I will try to upload a better copy though as I am downloading this TIFF. The pixels are the detail Hubble is capable of. Aside from looking good the pixel color differences gives us better clue on how the material is distributed in the planetary nebula (back when I first uploaded it, my computer had less ram than the size of the TIFF file). So it is supposed to be pixelated when zoomed in too much I believe.
-- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:24, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes, the massive pixels are a product of low quality JPG. I'll be working on this right away. The better quality version is at 4shared.com, though I am not sure if devs will agree to upload it here yet. -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 13:49, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
  • I still see huge pixels, but now the image is way higher in size, which requires even more time to open. That's probably not the way to solve the issue, it's not a matter of compression of the tiff, nor the fact that the file was made out of 9 separate images. If I have a photo of 2 by 2 px of information and make it larger I can now have a lot more pixels, but the information is gonna be only 4 pixels, in 4 squares, repeating themselves. I'm not adding quality/information to the file, only weight. That's what appears to be happening here. As for the second upload, I think 250 Mb is really too much, you probably want to revert the picture to its previous size of 37 Mbs. Just an opinion. --Paolo Costa (talk) 12:25, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Reduced size is reduced quality in this case though. I do not believe there are giant squares anymore. There are subtle differences in pixels, the difference is small due to the increased resolution. Are you sure it isn't a setting issue? I am not sure if I understand your concern completely. I thought I did which is why I went to great lengths to upgrade quality. :/ -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 12:54, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
  • I still see them, even refreshing the file. I don't know, could be a setting issue... it never happened to me before, even on large panos of approx. 100 Mbs. But I'm not sure, it could be a problem on my computer, that's why I'm not opposing. Maybe we can get an opinion from another user. --Paolo Costa (talk) 16:56, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Crop: Comet-like Filaments Along the Inner Rim of the Helix Nebula's Gas Ring
Crop: Another close-up of the Helix Nebula
  • The file is using what came from NASA/ESA/Hubble. I have not increased the resolution artificially by stretching the image. :) Mind you we do not really expect the viewer to view the file full. I am unaware of any computer that can display in 16k by 16k resolution. :) When you downscale the file down to screen size or printable size it should not show pixelization of any kind. If the person wants to print this image into a poster the size of the ones in times square, it should still not show pixels. High resoluition allows this. What it also allows is if someone wants to zoom to a specific point and crop that detail as the very center could be of great importance like here. If the file is downscaled down to 3k by 3k pixels it would loose that kind of detail.
  • By the way the individual stars you see may be pixelated as they are out of focus. The stars and the nebula are light years apart (literally). The object (nebula) you see is about 2.87 lightyears wide (~2,715,171,650,000 kilometers or ~1,687,129,450,000 miles) so it would take you 2.87 years to get to one side to the other if you are traveling at the speed of light!

  • Awesome stuff :) Crazy numbers. --Paolo Costa (talk) 20:14, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
  • To give you a better idea, the nearest star to the Sun is Alpha Centauri C which is 4.24 light years away making the nebula's radius ~0.677/10ths the distance to there. Indeed the numbers are crazy. :) -- とある白い猫 ちぃ? 21:22, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info As for those four vertical lines: That’s the reflection of sunlight off the ocean, or “glint,” that VIIRS captured as it orbited the globe.
    • Yes, I know. And there are four stripes, because this image is a composition of several pictures taken by the satellite at various places, normally there would be only one area. So it's artificial and not even useful to explain the "glint". Btw. explaining the flaw doesn't improve the image. --LC-de (talk) 11:24, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Very impressive techinique in stiching. Although sun reflection from four visible passes of the satellite over the Planet makes the picture looking odd and unnatural. The fact that it's a stich is not a problem for me, but parts of pictures with sun reflection in the oceans should be avoided (I don't know it that was possible though). Also I'm not very sure if everything went fully correct while calculating the resulting image. When looking at the famous blue marble picture form Apollo (which didn't required stiching as it was taken far enough from the Earth) we can see that there is a big part of Antarctica visible. I suppose the purpose of the author was to create a picture of Earth as seen form a similar point as the one Apollo 17 was in 1972. In 2012 picture we can see only some coast on Antarctica, while in Apollo's quite a large part, including South Pole. In other words South Pole should be visible in a picure taken from very high above a point on the Earth south of the equator and it doesn't seem to be here (at least far enough from the horizon). --sfu (talk) 11:56, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
