  ■ MMXX  talk  08:06, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I know all these photos, they're great. I still think this photo is special and attractive, since it shows a somewhat extraordinary use of fire, not very common nowadays. By the way, what you think about File:Waldbrand-Bodenfeuer.jpg and where you were when it was up for delisting? :) Tomer T (talk) 12:44, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

What fascinated me most, actually, is how you managed (intentionally or not) to make a square frame composition with a centered object fascinating.

What's the subject supposed to be, the car? The train station? Unfortunately, the image just has a point-and-shoot feel about it, slightly underexposed, with no clear idea as to what it wants to say.

Either way, nice waterfall, but the composition isn't striking and the lighting, in either version, is too bland. Probably could be a cool image, maybe from a different angle, definitely with the sun lower in the sky, or else a nice cloudy sky. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 23:48, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info as stated here this image is mirror inverted. in addition to the orientation of the Winchester Model 1873's loading gate, we can verify this information by the orientation of McCarty's belt and vest. The buttons of his vest are right over left (from McCarty's pov if closed) in this mirrored version but should be left over right (from McCarty's pov if closed) - that's what we can see on countless images of the same period. The belt ends to the right (from McCarty's pov) but should rather end to the left (from McCarty's pov). These are two additional inidcators which give proof to the fact that is image is mirror inverted. I'd be happy to perform a digital restoration of this unique item if you could provide a high res tiff scan. Regards, PETER WEIS TALK 05:55, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
Good idea. I emailed the auction house and they're sending my request for a lossless image to the photographer who took the digital image of the tintype. Can you tell from the original EXIF metadata whether or not he took the picture in a lossy or lossless format? Scewing (talk) 17:16, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
This digital copy was created using a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, which could theoretically provide a 21.1MP raw file. Using 320ISO is nonsense - repros should be done at the lowest ISO possible, for the Canon this would be ISO50. Using a 100mm lense is good, because it prevents the image from major distortions. The library of congress mainly useses a P45 digital back for their digitasations. Hasselblad has recently announced the H4D-200MS. There more pixels, the merrier! If they get 2.3M $ for that particular image, maybe they can invest 1 or 2 $ in a proper scan before they actually sell it. I disdain the idea of not having a seriously high resolution scan while this image is vanishing in some sort of private collection. Regards, PETER WEIS TALK 06:22, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, true, you may choose ISO50 on a 5DII, but it's an "ISO enhancement" setting as the ISO 25600 on the other side of the ISO range for this camera is, AFAIK. The lowest ISO setting on this Canon without any electronic tricks is ISO 100, I guess; ISO 50 being of some use for situations where you need a longer exposure but where a ND filter is not an hand, at the price of not having the last bit of possible detail in the image. Regards, Grand-Duc (talk) 22:48, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
All DSLR ISO works with electronic tricks. There's no film that gets exposed. For clarification: ISO 50 is basically ISO 100 with different metering. It falls 2/3 of a stop short at the highlights. Depending on your setting to digititise an image, this might be handy. On the other hand exposure bracketing might be useful here as well. You can remedy the effects of improper lighting and digitally increase the dynamic range of an image via this method. Maybe we are lucky and they'll do a better scan next time. Regards, PETER WEIS TALK 08:22, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment After I saw you'd uploaded this, I was hoping you'd nominate it. I too hope for a mirror reversal of a high(er)-resolution version, which I would gladly support. While the continual use of the mirrored image needs to be discontinued, in my opinion (and I was surprised the media still uses it to such a heavy extent), I also believe the disintegration of the photograph is as notable as the image itself. If the restoration is done extremely well, I could support that as well, but the original I think stands on its own for sure. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 01:30, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
I've retouched the image and cleaned it a little but I didn't flip it, it still could benefit from more restoration but I don't think it could be up to FP standards.   ■ MMXX  talk  19:34, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The picture is a symbolic reference to an important phase in the contemporary history of Egypt despite the technical issues. -Dyaa (talk)
    • First edit in Commons. W.S. 22:03, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Despite the technical issues it remains a very interesting picture. It represents two Egyptian symbols, the national flag and the mythological lion. I find it very beautiful how these two symbols are in a single shot. Azeri (talk) 12:09, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support (I was neutrally asked to comment here). I like this photo for its simple composition of sky, statue, man and flag. It's very poetic and yet also realistic. My preference actually is for this version since it's more balanced with the sky rather than just focusing on the person. That makes it seem more epic to me. It could be a little sharper, but at that distance it's still well done. Ocaasi (talk) 12:40, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Despites the mentioned technical deficiencies that will probably not let it become a FP, this image carries a great historical value and would be an ideal candidate for the Valued images category! Hendric Stattmann (talk) 21:57, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A great photo that is a symbol of the Egyptian people (the man with the flag) and their solid courage (the lion) fighting tyranny and getting freedom. The photo could be cleaned up by Photoshop for better quality. Ahmad Shahin (talk) 05:07, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I think this is better than the original nomination in terms of composition, but the crop is massive and it looks like you lost a lot of potential information compared to if the current composition had been the actual frame shot in the camera. I also think it still looks too staged and it's not as sharp and crisp (naturally) as it could be, simply because it started off as such a small area of the frame. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 12:22, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Striking shot that is quite emblematic of the Egyptian revolution, and I agree that a less-cropped version is preferable, to show more of the wild blue yonder surrounding this action. The lion, symbol of a king in Egypt, is surmounted by a young anonymous citizen protester in blue jeans, who holds the flag of his country above all. And the whole revolution was staged, if by staged you mean noncombatants, after some planning and organization, showing up in public squares with banners and flags so that their demonstrations of civil disobedience would be noticed by the powers that be (that were), and by the cameras of the world. If you mean literally whether this shot was contrived or taken out of context, the other shots in the Photostream it comes from indicate otherwise. Abrazame (talk) 07:07, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

            • No one is making wild acccusations, as the notifications you have made are technically cavassing.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info -- O que eu quero dizer, Miguel, é que o cenário não é o mais apropriado. Tal como estão, no meio da vegetação, os covos (nasas) parecem abandonados. Alvesgaspar (talk) 07:21, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
Assim dito é muito diferente. Os covos estão na praia (o fundo da imagem é areia), o lugar normal para deitar os covos não é a areia, é a terra firme, pelo que estão em erva, mas erva seca, na beira da praia. Eu penso que o dono vive em lugar próximo e os covos estão entre a vivenda e a embarcação.
Não há problema. Retirei a imagem pelo erro na categorização (fish trap), tras as suas palabras evidente. Não compreendo a sua agresividade. Depois eu sentin-me más agredido (trash). Só posso dizer que não compreendo ser tratado como delincuente. Isso sim, a imagem, para mim, não tinha futuro em FP. Para mim o importante é escuitar críticas e apreender, não medalhas.

Há aqui um mal entendido, Miguel. Eu não disse que a sua foto era lixo (trash) mas sim que as nasas pareciam ter sido deitadas para o lixo (trashed). Não há qualquer agressividade nas minhas palavras. Now in English for everyone: there is a misunderstanding here. I didn't say that your photo was trash but that the traps looked like having being trashed. There is no agressivity in my words whatsoever. Alvesgaspar (talk) 08:41, 2 July 2011 (UTC)
Ok, Alvesgaspar. My level of English is too bad. It's normal that I must use translators to understand. (Writing with a translator, because I don't know to say this:) I must be more careful and patient: I am able to learn and to improve. Thanks--Miguel Bugallo 22:38, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Benh: I cannot accept "I don't like framing" as an argument. It could be "I don't like colors" next time. Nevertheless, I accept the point about the cropped building. What do you think, what could I do with the horizon to be more straight? I tried to find a workaround, but couldn't. --HoremWeb Place of Auditions 19:28, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
Hi, unfortunately, judging a picture involves some "subjectivity". I don't have the right to say the framing is not good, because other people might like it like that. But I have the right not to like it. I like taking panoramas too, and when I end up with similar disturbing elements in the foreground, I would keep only the center part of the whole thing. Using alternate projections might help to get more of the panorama. I don't know the exact conditions under which you took the sources photos of the panorama, but I believe you should have set the camera a bit farther ahead to avoid most of the elements in the foreground. This would have helped getting most, if not all, of the closest building at the bottom. To my knowledge, fixing the horizon is easy, provided your sources pics are aligned correctly (if you went through some sort of automated process, this might not be the case), and provided you use decent software such as Hugin. It's most of the time a matter of setting the "viewpoint" (hope I name it right) correctly. - Benh (talk) 20:05, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
  • I add that although it could be considered a subjective matter, leaving the foreground elements like what we see here is to me due to a lack of practice (or just a bad habit) in taking panorama pictures, hence my oppose. I wouldn't oppose because of colors, unless it looks really unrealistic or whatever. - Benh (talk) 20:11, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Maybe a dark studio backdrop can be used instead? White may be fine on printed portraits, but on a bright LCD screen, it really bothers my eyes. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 22:33, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Sadly no. The setting was rather unprofessional - we didn't use any backdrop at all. File:2011-06-23-dora-heyenn-by-RalfR-11.jpg shows pretty well how we photographed in front of mere wallpaper. Applying a dark digital backdrop would be harmful to the details - you might want to look at the category to verify that. Several people have dark hair colours or wear dark clothing. I agree that using a black backdrop and a different lighting would've been nice. My intention was to create a uniform background for the images I took, so white is more a pragmatic solution than an astheatic one. Regards. PETER WEIS TALK 08:08, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

But I have the kind of feeling that this picture could be from almost anywhere in the mountains – so I believe there would be quite a huge amount of similar pictures which had similar chances of getting featured after this one. Just by looking at this photo I'm not sure which is the main subject of it: the stream, the mountains in the background, perhaps the entire valley or the type of vegetation? Perhaps I would have liked more to see either the direction where the water is coming or the direction it's going... SO, a pleasant picture to watch, but I'm not really sure what is the thing I would be supporting this for. --Ximonic (talk) 01:35, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Gracias Tomascastelazo. Me gustaría preguntarte lo siguiente: ¿Tú crees que sería preferible que en vez de centrar el crucero (el sujeto de la fotografía), lo desplazase para respetar la regla de los dos tercios? Yo creo que no, creo que en imágenes como esta no procede, pero la próxima vez que sea posible tomar dos imagenes diferentes, lo haré, e intentaré proponer las dos. ¿Debería tomar estas imágenes un poco de lado y no de frente? Gracias--Miguel Bugallo 01:22, 2 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Miguel, la regla de tercios, aunque se llame regla, es solo una guía, no es algo inflexible. En este caso lo mejor que se podía hacer es exactamente lo que hiciste, en mi opinión. Muy probablemente yo hubiese hecho la misma toma. Aunque de alguna manera estás respètando la regla, al situar el transversal en el tercio superior. Respecto a tomarla de lado, la imagen tal vez se haría un poco mas dinámica, al inclinarse el transversal. Si te desplazas a la derecha, por ejemplo, el lado izquierdo de la transversal baja y el derecho sube, y viceversa. Sin embargo, si te hubieses desplazado a la derecha, hubieses perdido algo de volumen, pues las sombras tenderían a disminuir. A la izquierda, las sombras se hubiesen incrementado. Lo que yo hago, con objetos estacionarios, es siempre explorar el punto de vista y tomar varias fotos, a distancias diferentes, alturas diferentes y desplazándome alrededor de la imagen. En fin, esto de tomar fotos es como aprender los cambios manuales en los autos, se convierte en una segunda naturaleza. Una práctica que yo hago, es evaluar rápidamente los elementos gráficos de los sujetos y acentuarlos, tal como color, volumen, contorno, textura, etc. Lo que si sugiero es que le des auto levels en photoshop, se mejora la imagen.--Tomascastelazo (talk) 21:42, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

  1. Dark objects in a shadows are... dark.
  2. Colors are not tweaked, that´s the way they are, helps people see them... much like construction vests, the idea is to be seen.
  3. the tires are slightly blurred... motion blur, that is not a photographic fault.
  4. luminosity values are what they are and reproduced according to their value in the dynamic scale. Can´t expect white to be shown as gray or blue, for example.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Correct. This is one of the shortcomings of digital photography. If neither extreme exposure is right in this case, it is because the luminosity of the scene, that is the dynamic range of the scene is wider than the dynamic range of digital cameras. Consecuently, the exposure is in the middle values. To have overexposed to bring back the shadow detail, would have meant to push the highlights even further out into more over exposure, and to under expose the sky would push the shadows into even darker values. There is a dynamic range for existing light conditions, for film and for digital. The shorter scale is the digital one. Digital works great when that scale is short. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 19:01, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Both of you are correct... and this is how one learns! I did not use flash because of the sync speed, it would have created a double image. And yes, the raw file can yield a bit more, but guess what? I did not shoot raw! In any case, my intention was to freeze the moment considering the contour or outline of the subject, expose for a half decent sky and I did not concern myself much with shadow detail, for I think it is irrelevant in this particular case. The graphic element here for me is contour and the photographic concern was to freeze motion.

I would almost rather see the ship taken from starboard, even if that means you have to boat out there to get it, and fill the frame with more ship, less sky and water. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 01:44, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This site and large areas of Rostock are illuminated by night with yellowish street lamps, sodium-vapor lamps, I think. Is it wise, then, to alter the colour rendering to get an impression of bright white light on scene? I recall exactly this yellowish hue of the location as depicted when I took the photograph. The edited version could not be seen as such in reality, IMO. As for the licensing theme... Well, what is the "spirit of Commons"? This file is free (due to the GDFL 1.2), Commons:Reusing content outside Wikimedia explains the reusing of GDFL-licensed material before dealing with the CC, so there is nothing against any "spirit of Commons", here. Regards, Grand-Duc (talk) 20:02, 2 July 2011 (UTC) PS. Mathias, you'll get soon my DNG raw via Wikimail.
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I've uploaded a new version with the corrected WB. Thanks again for the original dng file. It's a hard decision with the colours at such a situation like this. For me who don't knew the lighting there, it's just a wrong WB. Even if the lighting situation is more like your picture, the colours are not like this in reallity. For my taste i prefer the corrected colours, or a version between yours and mine, but the nominating one is to heavy for my taste. Regards mathias K 11:33, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I find this kind of pictures usually quite interesting to explore, especially all kinds of small details they have. But would this be a FP for me? Unfortunately, not. For me the main disturbance in this case is the crop below: I would have liked to see more what might be down there where the border comes. Especially in the middle of the picture there seems to be a kind of a valley which I would have liked to see a bit more. The cropped out rocks below on the right are also somewhat disturbing. The sky above the summit on the left is having somewhat different tone compared to the rest of the sky (I don't think it is natural but a cause of brightening the summit). At some mountain edges there are also some very obvious white fringing strengthened by image sharpening (these would, however, be really easy to fix with darkening or cloning tools. I've often been reminded of this also). --Ximonic (talk) 18:21, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support darkness is appropriate. the arrangement of light and dark areas is very natural. the valley has lots of shadows, yet one can even see the shapes of the fir trees. a polarizing filter was used to darken the skies - the top of the Großer Widderstein was affected by this as well. one could easily lighten this area and slightly increase global contrast - neglectable if considering the overall quality of this images. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 09:52, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I wouldn't be so sure a polarizer was used. On a 180° pano, you normally see the unevenness yield by a polarizer ; unless the picture is taken when the sun is at zenith, which is normally not the case here at time generation of EXIF. I also never seen that polarizer affected this much rocks (top of roßer Widderstein). - Benh (talk) 11:13, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

OK. What else did you do to darken the sky? Digital enhancement? Another technical gadget? Regards, PETER WEIS TALK 10:22, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
What makes you so sure something was done to it? I rather believe it simply hasn't been exposed long enough to have a medium-bright blue. Look at the snow, it should be somewhat white on a sunny day like this, but it is grey. The dynamic range of the scenery is very wide, difficult to catch without good and balanced postprocessing from the RAWs. -- H005 10:49, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
This effect looks rather unnatural to my eyes. Vignetting might be another answer to the question - yet I don't believe this is a realistic depiction of the sky. As for the colour of snow: ever thought of the clouds and their soft shadows? Luckily we don't need to theorize, Böringer is here to answer our questions (is he?).
Question 1: What's the reason for the dark skies?
Question 2: Did clouds cast their shadows on the snow (explaining the greyish snow tone)?

Ah, sprich das doch. Kein Problem, dann schreibe ich gerne noch mal auf Deutsch, um was es hier geht. Es gibt mehrere Kritikpunkte an deinem Bild von Seiten der User: Verzerrung des gesamten Bildes, nur ein Panorama unter Vielen, allgemein zu dunkel, unterbelichtet, Schnee ist zu Grau, Himmel und Spitze des Großen Widdersteins ist zu dunkel (stimme ich zu). Die Fragen die offen sind, sind folgende: Warum ist der obere Teil des Himmels so dunkel? Ist der Schnee deswegen so grau, weil die Wolken einen Schatten geworfen haben, oder hat das andere Gründe? Welche Ausrüstung wurde genutzt um das Bild zu machen? Welche Bearbeitungen wurden durchgeführt? Beste Grüße nach Österreich und regards, PETER WEIS TALK 22:18, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
die Fragen habe ich soweit schon verstanden. Dazu habe ich das Bild nebenan hochgealden. Dort sieht man in den exif Daten die Einstellungen der Panoramabilder. Es gab bis auf das Zusammennähen mit PTGui keine weitere Bearbeitung. Dass die Schatten im Schneefeld von den Wolken stammen, sieht man ja im Bild selbst. Warum der Himmel oben so dunkel ist weiss ich nicht. Vermutlich habe ich zu viele Bilder oder eine zu grosse Überlappung beim Erstellen des Pano gehabt. Eine Verzerrung links in den Wolken kann ich beim besten Willen nicht sehen. Für mich gibt es keine geraden oder schiefen Wolken ?!? --Böhringer (talk) 10:11, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Den Kritikpunkt "Verzerrung des gesamten Bildes" kann ich so auch nicht finden in den Kommentaren, ist meine Anmerkung "I also see a strong tilt - look at the clouds to the left" gemeint? "Tilt" ist aber keine Verzerrung, sondern eine Schiefe. Und der linke Teil des Bildes sieht mir sehr schief aus. (Anders als das Detailbild rechts - das ist gerade!) -- H005 13:50, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
diese und andere Ansichten nehme ich als gegeben an, da werde ich nichts ändern können. Trotzdem danke ich für die rege Anteilname an der Bildbewertung. --Böhringer (talk) 21:43, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Cool image, great composition, great subject, fairly decent crop. But the image is extremely "dry", I thought it was shot on film on an older stock (or perhaps overkill HDR) and was surprised to see it was done with a D90. I think the problem for me is the harsh lighting and the lack of fill light on the subject (obviously not always the easiest thing to "bring"). I feel like maybe some recovery was done in the shadows. I also feel the image to have a strange oversharpness/softness effect I can't explain, so perhaps the lens was no good or the image was over-processed. The rear end of the horse might be a little overblown, along with the cuirassier's left knee/thigh. Interesting background, interesting overall image, so I couldn't oppose, but I couldn't support either. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 15:56, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting question.svg Question How can you do HDR with a moving subject? --Jovian Eye talk 01:21, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
      • I should clarify that the HDR "thought" was only for a flash-moment. People HDR images of moving subjects (rivers/water, boaters, etc.) all the time, and while I cannot vouch for its technical authenticity, one simply has to create a second or third image of varying contrast/brightness from the same image. If an original RAW file can contain up to 11 stops of latitude within the photographic image, then the information can probably be filled and/or recovered to, say, one extreme or the other (overexposure and underexposure) with the original being properly exposed (for example). These three images can then be combined and an HDR look achieved. I've never done it myself; I'm assuming this is how it's done otherwise. With a single RAW image, simply filling in the shadows by brightening them even gives a sort of HDR appearance; so only one image is used. The information is already there. I do that all the time, for better or worse. : ) – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 04:31, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I personally do not think it is too dark. It is quite difficult to manage the exposure since you cannot guess the colour and intensity of each firework. Any higher exposure would only get the fireworks over-exposed. Of the 60 pictures I took at least one third had the fireworks over-exposed. As far as I could search, I found only two FPs on fireworks File:2007 Nagaoka Festival 004 Edit.jpg and File:Ignis Brunensis Macedos Pirotecnia 2007.jpg. Regarding the crop, I have nominated another image which has still better framing. --Jovian Eye talk 23:15, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Too dark, you can not appreciate the landscape. Not everybody has been to Washington, so not everybody knows what that landscape should look like, are those houses, trees, buildings?. This could have been easily solved increasing the exposition time or increasing the ISO. Also, the fireworks portrayed are not aesthetically remarkable, there are much impressive fireworks pictures around. Also, why do you propose to feature two very similar pictures token at the same spot and at the same time? Repeatability of pictures makes them lose their value, did you know? Why a picture should be featured if it is not unique? A featured picture has to be unique. (Gussisaurio (talk) 19:40, 13 July 2011 (UTC))
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It is quite easy to make such criticism. The subject here is not the landscape by itself, but along with the fireworks. The monuments are marked as annotations in the image. Regarding the exposure, this sort of subject is quite challenging. I chose ISO-200 to keep the noise low. The aperture was kept constant in all shots and f/9 was chosen to optimize sharpness. The shutter was chosen after a few trial and error attempts to 1/2 second. Despite these settings, a lot of the images were over-exposed. This is because of the luck factor I guess. I was unable to move from this spot which I reserved by arriving at the location 3 hours in advance! I fortunately have the RAW file and am planning to renominate the image after adjusting the exposure. --Jovian Eye talk 12:20, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info as regards blur: Mind you, dear friends, zero rotor blur is generally considered a flaw. Basically the same rule applies here, as it does for panning. The blur is supposed to indicate movement, and whereas in panning background blur indicates movement (of the object in relation to the background), the movement of propellers or rotors is generally the only way to indicate the status of a helicopter of propeller-driven airplane. Too little blur would be a valid reason to oppose, though far fetched. The presence of blur as a reason to oppose is far beyond the threshold of insanity. While the two opposing votes below are sound - I may agree with them or not, but they are sound - the demand for zero rotor movement is an insult and a half. Łukasz Wolf Golowanow (talk) 08:36, 7 July 2011 (UTC) PS File:Mi-2 Darłowo 2009 .JPG 1/1500, still blurred. Even with 1/2000 the blade tips would cover about 2-3 cm within the period and at 1:1 scale the blur would STILL be visible.
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with Airwolf's analysis, blur is sometimes a good thing, and this is one of those cases IMO. --99of9 (talk) 00:38, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Yes, thank you for explaining, and that makes perfect sense. I was actually looking at motorcycle pictures (in some magazine) and studying the wheels and they too were as crystal clear as possible while retaining an element of blur, and I realized without that blur, I would have thought the motorcycles stationary. Thus, exceptions excluded, blur would almost have to be essential. I've struck out my comment below. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 04:31, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry also :( Something about the image really bothers me. I don't like the crop, and it looks like a crop, if that makes sense. The helicopter seems just a smidge unsharp. I'm not familiar enough with heli images to know if rotor blur is unwanted (for the majority of times) or not, but I have to agree with Mono that here it doesn't seem to work, and I also agree that the background is kind of dull. I appreciate a non-distracting background, of course, but in this case, the lackluster steel color and the strange "smudge" shadow of waves make the image, overall, look kind of dirty. I think the copter is banking to the right, but it would be nice to have something to clarify the copter's motion through the sky. Wonderful red and yellow colors, interesting copter "shape", but really not something that stands out to me as a "great" copter image. (The color sure stands out, of course, but the image holistically just seems to be lacking.) – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 04:02, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

This unbalance breaks the composition and forces the viewer to look at the grass. This effect is not desired because the mountain at the horizon is much more remarkable than the grass itself. However, the peak of the mountain is almost touching the frame. This is a misleading composition. Can you please re-crop the picture so it gains the required balance, making the grass section of the same or lower height that the sky segment's? That would turn this in a much better and remarkable picture. (Gussisaurio (talk) 19:17, 13 July 2011 (UTC))

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question is it a HDR photo? Why? It looks very flat for me. The colors are false for me too. And why f/10 for a flat subject? The best resolution will be at f/2.8 or f/4. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 16:31, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment yes, this image has been achieved by exposure bracketing. the the camera's sensor was not perpendicular to the painting, due to it's position on the spot. that's why i'd chose f/10. the lacking perpendicular was remedied by using photoshop's lense correction tool. the best resolution for the EF 85 mm f/1.2L II USM is at f/5.6 regarding center, border and extreme measuring. diffraction won't be an issue below f/11. as for colours: repros (especially on here commons) feature considerations on this issue. since this is a non-professional reproduction (due to its daylight exposure, non-use of a colour seperation guide and other criteria) of the painting and i being a sceptic on faithful reproductions, i suggest to see the image on location. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 19:26, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I'm an involved editor, having worked on this article as well as several others related to Egyptian activism. BUT, it's a stellar photo: it captures the piercing, sober presence of a lifetime activist--a standout man amongst a crowd. It's crisp, well cropped, the black and white adds to the sense of history and iconography... the only defect I see is a bit of glare on the glasses. But then this man is always in the line of fire, directly in view, so he probably wouldn't have it any other way. Ocaasi (talk) 19:35, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Something can be seen in the air, it's not the clouds, but I'm not sure what that (flying?) black spot is. And the image looks a little grainy. I'm guessing someone may point out other flaws, but to be generous, I'm not opposing. —stay (sic)! 23:16, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
This black spot is a kite. --HélioVL (talk) 23:26, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Well in my opinion, that kind of ruins the image for me, unless the kite was able to be seen more clearly up closer. —stay (sic)! 00:52, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Blurry and not too fond about the composition (cut off tree on the right, horizon in the middle, too much sky). Might be worth taking in another season (with greener grass), in different weather conditions and at different time of day (early morning or late afternoon). bamse (talk) 09:14, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
