There is currently no WWI trench maps amongst the FPs. The image is a scan of an original Canadian Corps confidential situation map held at the Canadian War Museum. A German attack on the 3rd Canadian Division on 2 June 1916 resulted in the deaths of the divisional commander (Major-General M.S. Mercer) as well as the capture of a brigade commander (Brigadier Victor Williams), both of whom were making an inspection of the front line when the German attack began. The 3rd Canadian Division had to be pulled from the line and its front taken over by other formations. The map was produced on 9 June 1916 while plans were being developed for a counterattack to regain the lost territory (which took place on 14 June 1916). The map would likely have been used at either the divisional or corps levels to display the field situation.

So in your opinion it would have been better without the crane? --Mbz1 (talk) 12:25, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes, the crane makes the photo heavy on left, but on the other hand, without it the documentational value of the image would be lower. Anyway, I think this is a good news photograph and doubt that anyone else could have done it better from this angle. I just don't think it's exceptional enough to be featured. --MattiPaavola (talk) 12:43, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes, it is only the best image of erosion on Commons, the image that not only shows erosion itself, but the work that is done to fix it, but of course it is not good enough to be featured I guess Smile. BTW, if I may ask, what was wrong with that image File:Bluff erosion in Pacifica 2.jpg, on what side it was heavy :) --Mbz1 (talk) 22:56, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
Please calm down - it was a neutral vote, not even an oppose! :-) I just think that these pictures were not aesthetically as exceptionally superb as e.g. your best pics, like File:Crepuscular_rays_and_Dead_trees_at_Mammoth_Hot_Springs.jpg or File:Seal_Rock_from_Cliff_House.jpg, are. While falling of a house into Pacific is of course very important and we should take erosion seriously, in my opinion we are not talking about historically very important pictures here compared to e.g. first aeroplane flight etc. Therefore, I expect the aesthetics to be on par with the other FPs. This is just an opinion of one Commons user from a distant country - don't take it too seriously! Keep up the good work and Happy new year! BR, --MattiPaavola (talk) 10:14, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
whatever... Happy New Year to you too!--Mbz1 (talk) 19:51, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Intercity train of Kosovo Railways on its way to Pristina
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info all by Kabelleger -- Kabelleger (talk) 21:52, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support There are still way too few featured railway pictures, so let's try again :) -- Kabelleger (talk) 21:52, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral There's something about a mile-long object that is just hard to capture on film. When I think of the best images of trains, what comes to mind are the old B&W early 20th century industrial images showing the machinery, the complexity of the vehicle. This one just doesn't seem to capture 'train' as well as it could. Also the subject is fairly small and we can barely see the rails, which are a fairly important part of the train concept. Severnjc (talk) 06:50, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
    • About not seeing the rails: There is often no other way to get a background that isn't cluttered except standing a bit lower, as I did for this picture. Otherwise you'd have to be in a desert to get a calm background :) (we'll try that in February in Morocco). --Kabelleger (talk) 09:32, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral I'm afraid that composition (too much foreground) and quality here are a little bit too average for FP. But yes: we need definitely more good railway pictures at Commons! Interesting and very nice view of a legendary European engine from the 50's. This model - based on the famous F7 of General Motors / EMD - was not only built in Sweden by NoHAB, but also in Belgium by AFB (Société Anglo-Franco Belge de Matériel de Chemins de Fer) for the Belgian and Luxemburg state railways. In Dutch these engines are called "Bolle Neuzen" (Round Noses). -- MJJR (talk) 20:11, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info One of my favorite images from Afghanistan, where colors like this aren't seen very often. These girls are sitting in their section of a school in Bamozai -- the school consists of the shade of some trees in a nearby orchard. They look so happy because they just received the backpacks in front of them, which are probably the first school supplies they've ever owned. Some of the alkalai is blown out, as the girls were sitting in the shade rather than the direct sun. Fixed by Herby. Thanks man! Severnjc (talk) 09:59, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Same reasons as last time. In dark areas, too much detail is lost. I still think there's something wrong with the contrast/levels. Problem areas marked with image notes in the preview above. Lupo 14:55, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
    • Perhaps your monitor needs calibration? This was reedited to address those concerns. This does bring out more detail than the previous nomination. Other (non-uploaded) edits that go farther than this give an unnatural appearance. Would gladly send you the interim version if you'd like to try it yourself. Durova (talk) 15:01, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
      • My monitors are all fine, I think. (Using several different monitors and computers, in fact; same problem on all of them, and one of them is a calibrated 27'' iMac screen that is used for semi-professional graphical work.) Just compare with the unrestored original where the details are visible just fine. In fact, I just verified in GIMP that large parts of the shadow on the right man's back and left arm are just black (#000000). So it's not my monitors, but really something in this image. Lupo 16:19, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
        • As you can tell from the difference in filesize that "original" wasn't the actual starting point for this restoration. The Library of Congress later uploaded a much higher resolution version that was probably scanned separately. This restoration was edited from the highest resolution source file, although I had to convert it from 16 bit to 8 bit in order to upload to Commons. It gains an order of magnitude of resolution, which seems worth the loss of a few folds in Orville's jacket sleeve. Durova (talk) 17:23, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
          • Well, compare these two crops:
As you may notice, the 16-to-8bit conversion still leaves much more detail than what remains in the restored version you nominated here. It is evident to me that something with the histogram adjustments went wrong. Lupo 13:28, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I think that too much of the original artwork is missing (and no restoration can help that unfortunately). --MattiPaavola (talk) 16:04, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Too much information about the original artwork is missing. Otherwise (despite being rather fragmentary) it is a nice picture. It's just not clear exactly what it is. Kleuske (talk) 01:44, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I think this version is better than File:Antep erased2.jpg. Missing in this image is smaller than in File:Antep erased2.jpg. In the erased version, there are serious problems especially at the egde part with its rough trimming and it has lost the originality of historical artwork. Thanks.

I believe this one is better, both technically (far less noisy) and in terms of composition (the presence of the car, the soldier is little more than a shadow hidden in the smoke).

    • For the first time in 24 years I am speechless. Really. I find it unbelievable that a person boasting over 16,000 contributions has never actually taken the time to read the guidelines about file types, and instead invents his own guidelines just to have a reason to oppose. Sweet Jesus, I thought such things only happen in Poland. Wolf (talk) 19:19, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
      • Yes, I have made over 16,000 contributions, but I do not boast about it. Also, I have not made up any guidelines. Perhaps you are confusing file types and file extensions. You have linked pages to file types, but not about the file extension to use. Please see Commons:File renaming and Commons:First steps/Quality and description. The latter says "For photographs, use JPEG (file extension .jpg or .jpeg)" and clearly indicating what file extensions are to be used. I am not doing this to just oppose, but I think that featured images should be in line with guidelines in every way. I realise that it would be fairly easy to rename the file, and if this is done, I would not oppose. I would like to see better compliance with basic guidelines in the featured images in general. Incidentally it is against wiki-guidelines to use eastereggs, so please remove the linked images from above. What are the eastereggs meant to mean? What happens in Poland? Snowmanradio (talk) 23:03, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
        • What happens in Poland? This. This exactly, to the most minute detail. And above all, I refuse to comply unless I am given a proper justification of why it is essential and indispensible for the three letters to be lower case. If it is not essential and indispensible, I see no reason to comply, other than courtesy - I swear to God, I would not have a problem with this if you decided to let me know about it in a gentle and civil way (like you did just above), but you chose not to. Compare my oppose to SSL's recent nomination of F/A-18s which were preceded by at least two requests to shorten the filenames. More than that: I see every reason not to comply, as a gesture of civic resistance against such harmful actions. Because I do - with full responsibility, having thought through what I'm just saying - consider such voting as harmful. Mind you: not what you are trying to achieve, not the endavour of having extensions in lower case. But using this as a basis to oppose is, to the best of my judgment, contradictory to POINT. To sum up, quoting from the page linked by you: As a matter of principle it's best to leave all files with generally valid names at their locations, even if slightly better names may exist. Thank you for your attention. Good night and God bless. Wolf (talk) 23:34, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I think that it is unfortunate that we end up with featured images with file extensions that are not in line with the basic guidelines, and are likely to become bad examples of file naming to the general reader. Snowmanradio (talk) 00:22, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

I would oppose this image with an upper case file extension becoming a FP, but not if it is renamed with the lower case file extension. Snowmanradio (talk) 23:38, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Instead of linking to a page where I dont find the information, could you please provide a good reason why the case of the file extension is important enough for an oppose?--Korall (talk) 00:36, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
  • The page linked above says "For photographs, use JPEG (file extension .jpg or .jpeg)." See also Commons:File renaming, where you will see files with bad names are also changed to jpg with the lower case. I expect it is because you can get File:Book.jpg and File:Book.JPG, which is confusing to have files with the same name except for the file extension. I think that FPs (the best on commons) should follow the guidelines. If you are going to upload a new version with a fix as suggested by an earlier reviewer, then please upload the modified version with a lowercase file extension. Snowmanradio (talk) 09:50, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Well that text says nothing specifically about the case of the file extension. I think you are over-interpreting the guidelines and I do not think that reason is good enough to start renaming files. File renaming causes a lot of work on the other wikimedia projects that uses the files so frankly I think its best to leave the files with the names they already have. Every letter in the file name is case sensitive while naming files so there is a very large number of ways to name files with very similar ways and get confused. Please read Commons:File renaming that explicitly states 6 good reasons to move a file. Changing the case of the file extension is not one of them. --Korall (talk) 17:32, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I'm with Korall on this one, what exactly is accomplished by renaming these pictures? Is the quality of the image diminished in any way by having .JPG instead of .jpg? As far as I'm concerned, it's a giant waste of time and effort. The extension could be, .JpG, .jpg or even .JpG, and I wouldn't give a hoot. We should be grateful that people like korall, Wolf and others are generous enough to put their pictures on Commons for free. If you want to argue the toss, start a discussion on the talk page, in the meantime, strike your votes and get some commons sense. Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 19:57, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This image does have some similarities to this one in that they were taken less than a kilometre apart on the same day. However the similarity ends there for me as they were taken looking into opposite directions looking & into quite different conditions. To me this one reflects a bleaker and more remote scene well.

A CCW rotation of between 1 and 1.5 degrees is all that's required (check the horizon on the right quarter of the image for example, that terrain is approx level), I would do it myself and present the alt but it would be better if Herby did so as I would lose more of the scene working from this file than Herby would working from the originals.--Nilfanion (talk) 21:15, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Referring to the ordinance survey map the cairns on Rippon tor are on almost exactly the same contour line as the tor itself making the image a pretty true representation to me. I see from the file history that the image has been adjusted by 0.5 deg already. I don't see compelling evidence for any further adjustment I'm afraid. --Herby talk thyme 09:15, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm prepared to accept that there are better pictures of Sydney, but this isn't a picture of Sydney. It's a picture of the harbour. Having more sky, and the tops of those not very interesting buildings would draw the eye away from the actual subject of the picture. IMHO of course. YMMV. Regards, Ben Aveling 12:15, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Technically it's more a picture of the Opera House than the harbour. A good image of the harbour would show its expanse, not a tiny fraction of it in front of a notable building. And even if it were of the harbour, it's usually a compositional faux pas to crop the tops of buildings, trees etc when it's unnecessary to do so. Diliff (talk) 15:00, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
      • Getting the tops of the buildings would have meant framing closer to the tall ship. Ben Aveling 19:56, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Beautiful picture. I was a bit concerned when I saw the file size that it might be suffering from compression artifacts or reduced color, but viewing the picture at full resolution I wasn't able to spot any problems. DOF could be a little higher, but you got the entire head and most of the body in good focus. A focus stack might have gotten better results, but I don't think the DOF is so shallow as to be a problem. The green plant parts in the lower left are a bit distracting as they intrude on the focal plane, but again, that's a minor quibble. Severnjc (talk) 17:12, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

At lest now I know that somebody watched my video! Smile thanks, but I am not sure what did you mean with "What is the point"? The point is to show great white shark swimming, or it is an every day sight for you?--Mbz1 (talk) 16:40, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Intriguing symphony of different sea animals with very interesting colors. Is the saturation really like that or have you given it a hrmph on the saturation knob in the editing process? In certain areas immensely crisp and detailed. However, there is a bad area (cf. annotation) and I think that the composition is a little bit too busy for my taste. --Slaunger (talk) 23:15, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose while quality is great, I think there's a bit too much going on on the picture. It's dominated by the massive surface of the pillar, and details are lost when viewing on zoom level lower than full view. --Leafnode 13:00, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Ok, then I didn't see what you mean! Can you explain what light quality is exactly? This was taken on a midsummer day in Australia - so I had plenty of light, but that's obviously not what you mean. Do you mean how diffuse/direct it is? If so, which are you after? --99of9 (talk) 10:54, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
  • I suggest that you read [1]. Feel free to ask if you have any questions. --Aqwis (talk) 17:53, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the link. Interesting read. The problem is that most of his specific recommendations (dawn, dusk, clearing/oncoming storm) change the behaviour of the people on the beach. The aim here was to include typical beach activities, and for that you need typical atmospheric conditions. The hunk in Speedo's for Durova would probably not be there at dusk :). --99of9 (talk) 01:59, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
