Also one thing I like is that you seem to have chosen to modify esposures selectively in different areas instead of some full HDR effect. The way you balanced the brightness makes the result look more natural. So that's good. --Ximonic (talk) 12:52, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

It would be also nice to add some technical information to the description: which camera/lens have you used, which software for panorama stitching and how many shorts were stitched.

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg NeutralSymbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Lighting unimaginatively direct. Not sure about the framing. The image has been crudely Photoshoped, presumably to remove scratches, which causes a blurred patch in several places, rather than the actual text of the object. Colin (talk) 08:32, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment That bad? And I thought the only thing wrong with it were the fingerprints on the lens mount :) It's certainly better that the picture of the Praktica camera I submitted last week. The blurred parts come from focus stacking errors. I still need to learn how to manually correct those. Some dust specs have been removed but you would not be able to see that. But I think I better revoke my nomination because I've noticed that once you get a bad first review, chances are very slim that the picture will get featured.
    • Ah so that's what is going on. The stacking is probably responsible for the lack of 3D that I put down to the lighting. I have probably been too harsh. It is a very clean subject and that's not easy to achieve. And it is a very sharp image. I think the stacking errors will make an FP hard. Did you stack with Photoshop or another program? I've used enfuse with success. If you can get some of the frames you took into a Photoshop layer and aligned, then you might be able to reveal it selectively and fix the stack errors. And the clone tool might help with the blurred bits on the flat surfaces. -- Colin (talk) 16:21, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info My intention was to bring out the main subject (the tiger) well. Might be correctable, but I like it that way. The dark area behind the head is (for me) a nice dark (not black) natural background for the tiger's head. If only photos where every area is sharp and every area has the same brightness can become FP, every photo has to be a HDR focus stack :) A common style in photography is light-dark-contrast. --Tuxyso (talk) 13:54, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
      • Your comment is a bit unfair (or rather the assumption behind your comment). I work with shadows, various DOF and contrast when I shoot and I have never demanded what only photos where every area is sharp and every area has the same brightness can become FP. It would be madness to do so. You can have a look at the pictures I have nominated and voted for here. This particular image has imo a dark and disturbing background, it may be deliberately or not but it does not work for me here. Regards --ArildV (talk) 14:10, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
        • My argument was poignantly formulated and not against your photography. If it was misunderstanding sorry for that. It was a bit polemic against the trend on FP, especially on QI that every area of a photo has to be sharp and uniformly bright. I still think that my dark background to the tiger's head is not disturbing but accentuating the main subject. --Tuxyso (talk) 14:24, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
          • I try to avoid getting into irritated discussions on Commons (as the discussion you link to) but I personally think it is simplistic to talk about a trend. For example, "foreground is too dominant to be out of focus" is a valid argument and dosnt mean that "shallow depth of field is always wrong".--ArildV (talk) 14:38, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I'm going to go out on a limb: We're meant to be a file repository for all sorts of projects. While this isn't encyclopedic, that's not really a consideration we have here, and this could be useful for a variety of graphic design uses. Adam Cuerden (talk) 15:57, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
    • I suggest that no graphic design editor would pick this. The HDR halo effect is particularly amateurish. This isn't just a random file repository: images should have some educational purpose. If the only educational purpose is to highlight the creator's lack of skill or unusual taste then that isn't a redeeming feature. Search "Cadillac Range" on Google Images or even on Commons. In what way do you think this represents our finest images? Colin (talk) 18:13, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
      • I'm pretty sure I've seen such things used for covers psychadelic books. Things along the lines of en:Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. As I said, I think you may be being a bit normative in image evaluation; this is a recognisable style. Adam Cuerden (talk) 18:06, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
        • But this isn't an original-art project, nor is it a stock photo library for graphic design. It is out of scope, as well as being amateurish even for its style. Colin (talk) 19:42, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Did anyone think that perhaps the image was done like this on purpose? I've looked at the guys other HDR pics, and they are great. This was obviously done to be outlandish, which fits in with the whole Cadillac Canyon theme. C'mon, Cadillacs stuck in the ground in the middle of the Texas desert, and which the owner encourages to graffiti. It's out there! And I get this pic! russavia (talk) 20:13, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
    • We all know they are done on purpose. Even if one likes the extreme HDR style, the obvious halos round the cars are an artefact one would try to avoid or fix. I've looked at the guy's other HDR pics and they often suffer from similar issues. If it makes him happy and folk like his art then great. But this is original art and Commons isn't Flickr. Colin (talk) 20:24, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Weak support I know that it is very processed, but I'm a big fan of HDR and I really do like this image overall. I've seen plenty of better HDR images, but I have to (partly) agree with Adam Cuerden and Russavia on this one. Michael Barera (talk) 23:04, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support It's not overprocessed, it's processed the best it can for this purpose. It's a rare case of psychedelic art on Commons and it's obviously very good case. When you'll consider it as a psychedelic art, you'll see it's done exactly how it's supposed to be done. When you'll see it as a straight photo of this place it's indeed bad photo. This place needs more LSD. I means Commons, the ranch has enough of it. Surprisingly it's difficult to take photo of visions, so people have to use effects which aren't just a copy of sight after psychedelics, but it's poetry as well, which is understood naturally by the users. Objects are glowing with energy and you don't see that, you feel that. The example poetry in this photo is that glow, which brings memories back, even though it looks different while being hypersober. Krzysiu (talk) 06:32, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

It was an honest mistake, he tried to save lifes, but lost his place in the Thunderbird teams for this (The pictures gives the impression he is still flying above some crowd, I know 3D can be tricky during meetings but really I don't find the description accurate enought). --PierreSelim (talk) 18:24, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

    It's really not political, either the description is short Ejection from pilot bla bla seconds before F16 crash during XX airshow, either the description explains what happened and not only that the pilot saved lifes and his ejection seat worked well (which looks very much like propaganda to me). --PierreSelim (talk) 12:22, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Sunspot contains too many polygons, this can be simplified to simplify the amount of strokes. --Wilfredor (talk) 19:03, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
I tried out simplifying the sunspot—it does shave ⅓ off the filesize(~300kb), but I think the (small amount of) lost detail outweighs the (small) filesize reduction. Also seems pointless to me—PNGs, whose sizes won't change, are served by wikimedia, not the source SVG.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose For several reasons: (i) Ugly and unnecessary title (should go into image description page, not in image itself), (ii) Unrealistic moon surface (what are those "stars" around the craters?), (iii) Unreadable (too small) radii/lengths, (iv) Lengths need a space between the amount and the unit ("km") and 1737.1 should probably be rounded. (v) Light colored regions on surface should be labeled for completeness. Not extremely important, but having a source for the dimensions could be nice. Also, what does "Editable text is outside the SVG page frame." mean? bamse (talk) 21:11, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
I uploaded a new version(though for some reason the thumbnails aren't updating—click through to the SVG)—III I increased the size of the radii labels, IV There already is a space between the numbers and "km", you probably didn't see it though because of the close kerning. I made it a double space. I also rounded 1737.1 to 1737. V Not sure if this is what you meant, but I added the "terræ" label. VI, The dimensions come from the image it replaced (Main lunar core en.jpg), the rest(crust) from the moon article.
For numbers one and two, the "stars" are the brighter blast marks around craters, and the I feel the title helps with "completeness". Also, for "Unrealistic moon surface", "unrealistic" is an inherent quality of an SVG cartoon. I decided to hand draw this one instead of stacking traces like on my other ones.
"Outside the SVG frame" means that if you open the file in Inkscape, the editable text will still be there, floating outside the boundaries of the rendered image.—Kelvinsong (talk) 21:55, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This is not a depth of field issue (distant objects are sharp in the center of the image). However, the lens was at its widest setting (17mm), and while it is a decent lens overall (EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS USM) it does have some imperfections. I don't think stopping it down even more would have helped much. @1/500: Maybe something like 1/250 might have sufficed, but since a blurry train looks really bad and many pictures (like this one) cannot easily be repeated I usually prefer to be on the safe side. --Kabelleger (talk) 21:45, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not a bad view, but the tree/signal in the foreground is hiding a significant portion of the train and therefore not really contributing positively to the composition. It would have been better if that signal/foreground tree was not present (only the train and the meadow) and that could also make it a good minimal composition. Also looking at the direction of the light, I was wondering whether you had taken a picture from the other side of the train, that would have lighted the train well. --Dey.sandip (talk) 04:42, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
