  • There is no doubt this is a good image, however I feel this could be achieved by anyone at any stained glass window during a bright day. I shall refrain from voting as I am undecided, I like it, but there are plenty like it.Mtaylor848 (talk) 21:18, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support There are also "plenty" of dragonflies, but that doesn't stop us promoting the good ones. As stained glass windows go, on the other hand, this isn't one of the very pretty ones, so my support is partly due to the building the window is part of. Maedin\talk 12:35, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Morgan 3 wheeler

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info A Morgan 3 wheeler with a JAP motor during GLP at "Gaisbergrennen" 2009. Sharp, you can see the motion of the wheels but also see the surroundings mirroring in the car. Nice depth of field, the car is complete sharp, the background blurred, but you can see the action. Created, uploaded and nominated by MatthiasKabel(talk) 19:38, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Reluctantly oppose, good picture, but is off-centre and the background detracts from the car slightly. Mtaylor848 (talk) 20:47, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Background is blurred, centering can be boring, and the shadows ar on the right side of the picture. (5 oppose from me because of resolution didn't influence your decision?) MatthiasKabel (talk) 21:07, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
I've sent my lambs out to slaughter, no hard feelings.Mtaylor848 (talk) 21:12, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not quite FP for me, due to the distracting background (despite the fact that its blurred) sorry --Tom dl (talk) 21:17, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I like it. Also the background is just blurred enough to give you the feeling of the oldtimer race. Crop on the left is a little bit tight though. --Chmehl (talk) 07:55, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The background needs to be blurry to keep the eye's focus on the car. An in-focus background would be distracting. I wouldn't crop it because the road stripes add to the effect - maybe just a little cropped off the right if any. The engine detail is extremely interesting. Royalbroil 13:14, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
I thought about cropping on right side also, but I wanted the traffic sign and the shadows and moisture on the right side shouldn't be cutted. MatthiasKabel (talk) 15:43, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I like it, but crop is too tight on left side and there's too much blurred surface on right. kallerna 17:09, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I do not see the use of a shallow dof here. It might even be confusing as it makes me wonder if there are anything special about those letters that are in focus ?

    • I would say the main subject of this photo are the Latin letters on the Roman gravestone. However, instead of showing a plain gravestone with all the letters in focus (due to a deep depth of field), I "played" a little bit with the aperture of my camera, bringing the focus on some few letters. That was my main intention behind this photo. --Tiago Fioreze (talk) 08:29, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg CommentIMO out of courtesy for the individual depicted, and because we do not need the rest of the person for clearly illustrating the premises of homelessness and poverty. Not seeing the complete person brings a sense of tension and curiosity for the viewer, and stimulates imagination. Have a close look at the condition of the feet and its nails, see the worn texture of the filthy trousers - it tells you all there is to tell of the lack of resources for this particular individual. I think such a type of photo has an impact on the viewer, which depends a lot on the cultural background, and personal preferences. Perhaps not as objectively informational as if the entire person had been there, but the impact on the viewer is larger. --Slaunger (talk) 18:20, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I think this picture illustrates strong and beautifully the abstract concept of poverty, without having to personalize the human subject. Even if if were to be evaluated under the strict encyclopaedic critera of Wikipedia (at WP:FPC), it would pass the test IMO. Alvesgaspar (talk) 18:46, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It's pictures like this which make me think of humanity, and how interconnected we all are when we strip away our individual differences and barriers of race and rank and allegiance. If this were a whole human, you would see that he is a dirty man who looks like no one you know, and no one that you would want to know. But in this view, you see the hair on his legs . . . quite a lot like yours, perhaps, and the veins in his feet, carrying blood for him as well as the rest of us. I think it's very powerful to move to detail, because sometimes it can get around our own subconscious barriers better than "the whole story" can. Maedin\talk 19:15, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because it is not stunning, questionable composition, has glare, has lighting problems, and doesn't befit the FPC criteria in general. Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.

Anonymous DissidentTalk 14:16, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I am commenting on your proposal to FPX the image because of the reasons that you state are completely subjective and lack substance at that, except at your personal level, which cannot be relied on as evaluation criteria. Not stunning is subjective and subject to personal preference. Not an objective point. Questionable composition is also subjective and again, subject to personal preference. Not an objective point. Glare, where? the sun is behind, so there is no glare. Not a valid technical point. Lighting problems? Which? dynamic range is there, if you knew zone system photography this would be evident. In fact, given the dynamic range, exposure is pretty good. Again, not a valid technical point. So I nonymously (sic?) dissent in your personal opinion and I definitely dissent on your technical observations. Self portraits are a tradition in painters, photographers, etc., and are self interpretations of the creators. Whether they work or not for the observer is a different story, subjected to the cultural capital of the observer and his knowledge of the medium, but they are definitely a common practice. A simple oppose would have been enough. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 17:48, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Lack of source is probably also trivial? References and labelling make or break a scientific illustration. Now it has no value. Lycaon (talk) 20:00, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
      • BTW, talking about useful: it is not used in any of the larger wikis. Lycaon (talk) 20:09, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
        • BTW, have you checked this? It says IT IS used on 132 pages in 23 projects, what are you talking about? --Ahnode (talk) 13:40, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
          • Yeah sure, it's used on all transcluded Potd templates, but all serious articles shun it. Must be a reason. Checkout en: FP candidature too. Lycaon (talk) 14:22, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
            • Oh I haven't noticed that, but now I see why. You removed it from at least two articles yourself (Russian & Italian). Now when you did it, you got a formal "right" to claim it isn't used. That is at least not nice. --Ahnode (talk) 14:51, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
              • That's very nice cause I did them a favour. You don't seem to understand this, do you? As a scientist it is my duty to correct (or denounce) incorrect or confusing information, not to promote nice pictures!! Lycaon (talk) 14:59, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol keep vote.svg Keep It probably took hours and hours of hard work to make this highly detailed illustration. Since you cannot substitute it with a real-life photograph of a dissected hand, the FP status of this image should stay. (P.S. I have such a feeling that I was not the only one to use wrong template in order to vote. Whoever is going to count votes, read the comments first, they might contradict the vote template.)--Ahnode (talk) 13:40, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
    • It take as much hours to make a correct illustration as to make a partially useless one, so why keep the latter? Lycaon (talk) 14:03, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
It isn't useless because you want it to be useless. See above. --Ahnode (talk) 14:51, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
That's why I said partially (please read my comments properly) as it is salvageable should the original author (or someone else for that matter) want to do the effort. I'd rather have it as a correct image than not used! Lycaon (talk) 15:04, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
I think it will be a good idea for you to notify The Photographer about this nomination to delist his illustration. At the same time, I would suggest you, as a scientist, to help us improve the illustration and explain precisely on the talk page (image's or user's... wherever) why do you think it is inaccurate. This is going to be the best 'favour' you can do so far (removing it from articles doesn't count, as you haven't discussed it first at the article's talk page). As for your claim regarding absence of references, Wilfredo specifically addressed this issue when replied to your comment. Probably you couldn't have asked Wilfredo to enter this information into illustration's description template. But again you haven't contacted him yet. --Ahnode (talk) 16:05, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
This was obviously not a reference. I can't understand why you are so adamant in wanting to keep this picture as FP when it clearly needs work done to it. It doesn't even specify whether it is a left or a right hand so that a laymen (99.99% of users here myself included concerning human anatomy) can't properly judge whether it is a top or a bottom view...

    • Any reason? Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:19, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - The image doesn't have FP wow. The tonal range is narrow and the composition is clunky. It's designed to be informational, not convey an overall emotion or be an example of excellent photography. The image is interesting historically and as you say, valuable for illustrating programs, websites, etc., of productions of Macbeth. My understanding of the FP criteria may be inadequate, so I welcome any comments. Downtowngal (talk) 23:27, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
The FP criteria are somewhat photograph-biased, but it's usually accepted that informative illustrations are fine =) Adam Cuerden

    • Interesting question. I can't spot JPEG artefacts, so I can only presume the dark background is particularly good for compression. Adam Cuerden (talk) 17:16, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
    • Yes - this JPEG is compressed at high quality, but images containing large, smooth dark regions tend to compress very well with JPEG (just take a look at the filesize of an underexposed photo) due to most of the quantized coefficients going to zero, facilitating the benefits of the end-of-block sequence. Interestingly, a crop of his face (File:Charles Robert Darwin by John Collier cropped.jpg) is 20% the number of pixels, but 34% the filesize. Dcoetzee (talk) 19:13, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment You know I'm a stickler for geotagging, having made, e.g., the {{Geo}} template. On a number of occasions, I've been told that the geotagging would be useless for photographs of a given creature because the subject was photographed in captivity. I never recall that fact being considered a dealbreaker for an image's FPC eligibility in the past. Even if the image were said to lack the ecological validity provided by an in-habitat shoot, I believe the image illustrates the species quite well, and with high image quality; and I feel that any "damage" to the image's suitability is mitigated by the fact that it also illustrates the state-of-the-art in enclosure design, as this exhibit opened just a couple of weeks ago at the National Aviary. —Notyourbroom (talk) 19:24, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Zoo environments certainly don't prevent a picture getting FP, however they usually fall into two categories : 1) even though the animal is captive you don't get that impression by only looking at the picture, 2) inspires emotions of anger or pity (i.e. a gorilla or chimp looking sad clutching the bars of its cage). In this particular case I think the opposes are because it doesn't fall in either category, IOW the background is distracting without offering much value (I understand this is a new enclosure, but it's hard to tell by simply looking at the picture). --ianaré (talk) 20:14, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Please obtain id's before you nominate. Thanks. Lycaon (talk) 11:25, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Well Lycaon, a few things... Ianare generously contributed with the id... (thanks Ianare) before you opposed. And while I see the value of identifying subjects, it is not part of the guidelines, and I don´t think it should be a requirement. So I see no basis for your oppose, unless you find other faults... (and please don´t just add the requirement by yourself). Some people are good at photography, others at identifying or classifying images... Others at both... If you have the knowledge, share it. I have photographs, I share them... That way everyone wins! --Tomascastelazo (talk) 22:45, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
    • That's not very fair, isn't it? Imagine if I would nominate a name of an insect (well defined) and trhen say: ""I name the subject, you take the picture". A bit ridiculous too, wouldn't it be? Lycaon (talk) 13:03, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
      • LOL! Wrong premise Lycaon, starting point is the image, all else follows. Besides, this particular image is centered on flight of pelicans, where the particular identification of the subjects is not the main objective. Remember the Tao, "The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. Translation, the words are not the thing named, the words are not the image. The image is the image. The words about the image is not what is judged here. The image is. Granted, Identification is extremely desirable, but to what depth? And since this is a collaborative effort, I think it is reasonable for people to help the project along, not to shoot it down in technicalities. Add them and further the effort. I prefer depth over form. --200.56.93.82 18:01, 8 June 2009 (UTC) Opps... that was me... --Tomascastelazo (talk) 19:05, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
        • You are missing the (my) point. I have nothing against uploading unidentified pictures (though I'd never do it myself) but there are lots of options to find out an id before you nominate. FP is not an identification forum (nor a forum to post several alternative versions of the same thing for that matter, but that is another story). We have Commons:Photography critiques for that. Other users can do it (e;g. Alvesgaspar, Yann, Richard Bartz, ...) so why couldn't you? I help where I can and when I can and so do other people. Lycaon (talk) 22:26, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
          • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Please judge on FP criteria, this is still not QI. I agree that identification makes an image much more useful, but images are not just used for Wikipedia articles about a species. --Tony Wills (talk) 23:12, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Bad quality + id's missing. kallerna 12:49, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
    • ... and continuing with the next... What does bad quality mean? There are generally agreed criteria in the photographic world that can, somewhat objectively, define quality in specific terms. Please define your idea of bad quality in adequate language, at least as a courtesy considering your ever present opposes. I think the authors deserve to know the substance, if there is any, of the critiques. That way others and I may learn something from your wisdom. As for the ID, if you had taken the time to read the description, you would have seen the ID. --200.56.93.82 18:01, 8 June 2009 (UTC) That was me... --Tomascastelazo (talk) 19:05, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

I keep reading that short sentence in this forum yet the quality gurus never seem to put forth valid arguments that result in such judgement and do not contribute to the authors or other observers. If it is an opinion, say so, if it is the result of an evaluation process, bad quality can be expressed in photographic terms. As it stands, it is just an opinion. Purpose of the image? Well, if you read a little about geography, rivers and ecosystems, this picture illustrates on those areas, encyclopedic in nature. Pretty or eye-catching photography? Definitely no. Illustrative of a geographical space, yes. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 18:12, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment In this instance I was referring to the softness of the image esp. away from the cows, nearly all the image is soft (maybe motion blurred?) especially at the edges when compared to work such as diliff's, obviously this isn't a downsampled pano, but this is really unlike a 50d with good glass in front of it. I'm sure you know far more about it than me, and there's probably a reason why you didn't, but in this instance I would consider a polarizer, shooting at ~90mm on a crop body you're not going to get a huge amount of difference in polarization across the sky and you'd definitely knock out some of the haze and increase the contrast.

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because the images shows reflections from a window of bus. Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.
