Looking at it again, I think it is a cropped version. The UUID is the same in the EXIF. I am not sure how to add the other as an alt, but I did add a thumb. I came across this image by fluke.

I added tags as per COM:PEOPLE. Value could easily be fashion, antique column graffiti (after crop), facial features/expression, etc, etc.--Canoe1967 (talk) 16:39, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
"could be fashion"??? "After crop" is not visible on that picture, and facial expression....So just because it could be nice, it does not necessarily be educational. --Yikrazuul (talk) 18:23, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
"Could easily be fashion", please don't misquote me and see the IP comment below. An article could easily be written and use the image as a example of social values reflected in fashion. When I said 'crop' I meant the column section could be cropped out as it seems to be the best image we have of the graffiti on this famous building. Another reason for featuring, you may wish to google National Geographic cover for June, 1985. Let me know if you would oppose that image as well. I find them very similar. --Canoe1967 (talk) 19:14, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The other version has more interest with more of the antique column graphiti avialable. In both images there is disconnect between the modesty implied by the head covering and the deeply plunging neckline of the sundress. That could be a plus or a minus depending on your perspective.
This is exactly why this picture was interesting to me. The apparent contradiction between modesty and sexuality. The woman appeared to be a model preparing for what looked like a photo shoot outside the door of one of the most important religious buildings for several faiths. There were several people looking on with obvious scorn. I just wish there was a way to have taken the picture of the spectators. Almonroth (talk) 14:52, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose – No illustrative or educational value regarding the Holy Sepulchre, and the same is true for topics of graffiti and fashion: these features are all too small and obscured by the dominant presence of the woman. Is there a reason to make her a Featured subject? If so, it's not explained. Also, the issue of personal image rights does not seem to have been settled definitively.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I think the discussion here reflects the same feeling I had when I saw the woman set up and pose at the pillars. When other people were putting wishes on notes in the cracks of the columns and kissing them, praying, she was posing in a very obvious contradiction of mores. Whether it was for money or for personal portfolio, it seemed a challenge to establishment. I think it very interesting. Almonroth (talk) 04:57, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

  • The camara will take 3648x2736 picture but the output will very poor in case of macros; may be due to the small sensor. This is with the help of extended optical zoom (3MP) as advised by the manufacturer. I use the image size setting as 'maximum size/best quality'. I will get a bit more space around if I had used the extended optical zoom (5MP)setting even though I loss a bit details. Jkadavoor (talk) 05:56, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Use of terms like "Bad" and "Disturbing" are inappropriate when reviewing someone's work. Surely there other less contentious words that could be used to gently convey the issue with the image. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.137.245.206 (talk • contribs)
    • Eh? As long as the adjective used concerns the picture, and isn't gratuitously over-the-top, then I don't see what is wrong with critical terms. If the nominator can't stand criticism of the picture then don't nominate. My issue with Yikrazuul's comment is that it isn't helpful enough in saying what is "bad" about the crop. Colin (talk) 12:02, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
      • Perhaps it is a Canadian cultural thing. Critisim comes in many guises and not all should be welcome here. I would never tell a child they are being bad, as it is enirely too harsh given the context we use the word (akin to morally reprehensible or defective). These photos are analogous to people's babies. I just don't see the need to be so blunt when so many other descriptive words are available and as you note just saying something is "bad" is not helpful in correcting any issues. It just makes the environment hostile and misses the mark of providing constructive critcism.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.137.245.206 (talk • contribs)
        • Remember that not all contributers have Engish as a first language. Bad is a simple word everyone understands. Since an object itself (the photo) can't misbehave, then the only reasonable meaning is that it is "defective" as you say. Which is a valid criticism, though not very precise. This is not a forum for children so the kind of attitude we have towards reviewing one's child's work or behaviour doesn't apply to adults who have voluntarily put up a picture for public review. As I've said elsewhere, if you just want uncritical praise of your photographs, show them to your mum. There are worse behavioural issues here than reviewers being blunt about an image's defects. These are not people's "babies" and many of the behavioural problems seen here would be improved if folk just took a "win some; lose some" attitude to their nominations, rather than getting all emotional about negativity. Colin (talk) 14:24, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
          • Of course they aren't babies but to deny people aren't (or shouldn't be) vested emotionally in their works is silly. This is why in a community such as this the emphasis should be placed on contstructive criticism. No one is asking for uncritical praise just some courtesy when reviewing. Asking that people avoid emotive words like "bad" or "disturbing" shouldn't require this level of debate. Bad may be a short word but it is by no means simple when you take a moment to look at the definition and the baggage this carries. Brushing aside concerns in this regard is all just part of a culture where people are expected to have a stiff upper lip and take it on the chin as if nothing better can be achieved. That may be your worldview but it doesn't have to be the reality here. Moreover, negative votes effectively have twice the weighting of a support vote and as such offering an oppose should come with it clear expectations of justification. Saying something is just bad is not helpful (On this aspect we are in violent agreement) and hurtful. If it is not helpful and/or hurtful then it doesn't belong in a community that hopes to attract and retain contributors. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.137.245.206 (talk • contribs)
            • Would you mind signing your posts, please. This is off-topic for this nomination really. If you think it is important then could you post on the featured candidate list's talk page and get an account. I see no baggage with the use of the word "bad" in the above example. The fact that the nominator isn't complaining, but just some IP who is unable to contribute images or vote, suggests to me that perhaps it is just you being over-sensitive and reading into the words meanings that aren't there. Colin (talk) 13:14, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I too like the flowers on the top and bottom. People may complaint about low resolution if we crop tight for small subjects; so better leave as it is. :) Jkadavoor (talk) 06:34, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

      • the animal unclear. the focus is problematic - it think it should to bold the animal better. now it disappear. Zivya (talk) 08:33, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
        • Dear Zivya; a camera, a lens, or a person can be problematic. I don't see how the focus of an image can be problematic. The focus can be on the right place or can be on the wrong place. It should be on the subject, as is the case of this picture. Therefore I don't understand your statement "the focus is problematic". Maybe you meant, the depth of field is too shallow, meaning there are many blurred parts besides the subject? But then, later on, you state: "it should to bold the animal better", which doesn't mean a thing. I know there are language problems, and you probably used google translator or something... and sorry if I'm being too accurate... but it is good that we all use some standard terms. If you want the background of a picture to be blurred and "bold" the subject, then you should use the correct verb, which would be "emphasize" or "highlight" the subject. By the way, before continuing with your critics on FPC, it would be cool and useful for you to read Commons:Image_guidelines. There, you will learn some useful terms and how to correctly evaluate a picture. Regards, --Paolo Costa (talk) 15:07, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
          • as i see, you understand very well what i meant to. you delayed on terms. so to be correct: i think that despite the focus, it is not clear where the subject is located. and i thank you for your polite invite to read the image_guidelines - i think it will be more useful for me to take English course. anyway, i will do my best next time. thank you for you comment. As they say, all beginnings are difficult. Zivya (talk) 17:48, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Possibly the small f18 has led to diffraction causing a loss of overall sharpness. The small aperture, however, ensures the image is in focus from front to back. This is a 20MP image. If I downsample to 10MP, say, it is gloriously sharp all over. So complaining of "lack of definition" is pixel peeping IMO and punishing the uploader for being generous. This is a lovely picture.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I find it too misleading. If it were a sequence of, say, five shots with gradual changes, one would understand that it is the same bird in multiple shots. But here it is confusing. There should be a clear border between the two shots, or they should be presented separately. Gidip (talk) 07:51, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
    • I actually have a whole sequence of frames, but the bird is changing altitude, so I would have bits of missing background if I stitched them. It may be possible to put five together or something though. JJ Harrison (talk) 12:48, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
      • That may be easier that you think I did that with File:Heron and small trout crop.jpg I had to rotate and stitch in some water and rock sections. It didn't take long in gimp with oval sections feathered to a 20 pixel threshold.--Canoe1967 (talk) 20:06, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The picture is imo technically excellent (maybe just a bit dark). ISO 1600 and f/3.5 is very good choice for night shots, with long exposure times. But you also have a good sensor, wide angle lens, and you had enought light, which allowed you to achieve low exp. time, resulting in a beautiful starry sky with no startrails.

  • I tried to make a complete rework from RAW. I think it cannot improve very much from this. There should be only slight camera grain which might be difficult to remove completely because many details might get lost. Of course this is very different thing than capturing stuff in bright day light. One should take that in concideration. Every setting is a compromise to something. --Ximonic (talk) 20:12, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
    Sadly, it is not possible to make everyone happy in photography. I think the image was fine as it was. Night photography is usually about night sky. I remember reading in some book "don't get detail syndrome when shooting night sky". High ISOs are usually recommended (normally above 1000), as well as f/3.5, sacrificing some detail while applying some noise reduction. In my point of view the aurora is the subject in this pic. Auroras are difficult to see even in clear nights, and high ISOs are mandatory, as well as big apertures. The lake just adds that something to the framing, don't think it's important (neither possible) to show everything sharp in this kind of shots. But then, photography is a very subjective art. --Paolo Costa (talk) 14:03, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

  • For me this version looks somewhat too reddish. I wanted to take special care of the white balance because I guess many of you haven't witnessed northern lights yet. So as I've seen them several times I want to give you the idea of the actual colors and brightness. Although the auroras can be very dim and very bright, also red as well. If you want to photograph them you should travel atleast as far as polar circle. (But I'd rather suggest to go further north because the probability of seeing them increases greatly.) This phenomenon is certainly not rare - it happens all the time but you only need luck with the bright ones. --Ximonic (talk) 09:12, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because it has heavy vignette, very visible compression artifacts (JPEG compression), is oversaturated (Color) and the subject too small in the image (Composition). 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.

  • Thanks to Jkadavoor. Now I can understand. The problem is the translation: In Spanish, Galician or Portuguesh, there are two verbs ("ser" and "estar"), but in English only one (to be). If I translate with a automatic translator "la cara está oscura" (= the face is underexposed), the translation can be "the face is dark" (="la cara es oscura", but also ="la cara está oscura"). On the other hand, "oscura", in spanish or galician language, is a shade of a color, never the name of a race. The hair or the skin can be "oscuros" (=dark) regardless of race. Sorry--Miguel Bugallo 21:51, 30 May 2012 (UTC).

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think the sharpness isn't perfect but if one reduces the 9MP to 5MP it is fine so given that Commons FP only requires 2MP then I can accept this and encourage uploading of the larger size. However, it needs a little straightening. A tool like Hugin should be able to do this nicely but will affect the crop. Ideally one would do this on a TIFF of the full image. If the uploader doesn't have the tools to achieve this, then contact me. Colin (talk) 20:23, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info More Clear.
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Although this has a slightly larger crop, it also appears to be reduced in size. This might make it appear sharper but we prefer the full size version (and the end-user can resize to whatever they want). Do you have a RAW version of this photo? If so then email me and we can exchange it and I'll straighten it for you. Otherwise, could you upload the JPG you got from the camera, without cropping or rotating, and I'll do my best to straighten and crop it. Cheers, Colin (talk) 11:13, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is ok for me.--Telemaque MySon (talk) 15:35, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Monfie supplied the original photograph (here) from which I've had a go at minimising the distortions. However, I've uploaded over the top of this Alternative rather than create another file. Sorry if that complicates things. I'll let Telemaque MySon know. The latest version is straighter IMO but not 100% regular all over. The tiles are clearly not all laid in a straight line. Plus there's probably some distortion due to the lens that I'm unable to correct for. The JPG didn't have EXIF with camera details. I suspect this still isn't the original from the camera (perhaps that's been lost). A significant difference between this alternative and the original is that the proportions of the tiles are close to square, whereas the original was fatter. -- Colin (talk) 20:37, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I checked per random several FP of birds and found a range of f/4 to f/9 and a focal length of 55 - 600. So the values are at the lower border, but not exceptional. The distance to the bird was lesser than 2 m, the light not very good (see exposure time 1/60 with f/5,6). The small distance explains the focal length of 55mm, the bad light f/5,6. A smaller aperture would have caused 1) a exposition time too long for a living object 2) probably a more detailed, distracting background (for the distance to the wall behind was only about 1m), a larger aperture would have caused too little DOF of the object itself. --Llez (talk) 14:25, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

    • Thanks for the review. It would be helpful for me if you could be a bit more specific regarding the technical issues in this QI, as it is not obvious to me. As a Dane, the wow is obvious, but I realize that for non-Danes it may not be so obvious that the photo grasps various element typical of a midsummer celebration in Denmark. The soft evening light, the celebrating newly graduated students with their hats in the boat with the champagne, the bonfire with the witch ready to be lit at sunset after the town mayors speech. The light was just perfect for a few minutes before it got too yellow. But of course, an image should not have to be explained as I do here. If it is not obvious, what the point is, it does not do its job well. --Slaunger (talk) 19:41, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
      • "Graduated students"? Could be a everyone, I see only one holding a beer bottle. And if they were g. students, so what?

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Agriocnemis pieris are very small damselflies (dartlets), only 16-18 mm long and almost invisible under our feet among the grass while walking. The males are white and pale blue with black stripes while the females have different color morphs; here the female is orange. The existence of several female colour morphs is a conspicuous characteristic of many damselflies that show one male like (androchrome) and several non-male like (gynochrome) morphs.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Soerfm (talk) 19:16, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The image annotations are good. Valuable. But it has been downsampled a lot after making the grid alignment of the original images leading to unecessary loss of detail. Moreover, for me the b&w graphics and the grid composition does not work so well for me. --Slaunger (talk) 19:55, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Yes, I forgot to say that the images are sampled from the gallery Apollo 11 flight where they are better seen; however I don't know how to nominate a gallery that is why I chose this. Soerfm (talk) 20:05, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • OK, I see, but in the process of making the composite from the individual images, the resulting image has been downsampled significantly (basically every four pixels in the original has been merged to one). And that is a pity as information and details are then being thrown away, when there is no reason to do so. --Slaunger (talk) 20:17, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • The question is perhaps: should I nominate the gallery instead? Soerfm (talk) 20:24, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes, I think that would be a better idea. Look for the headline Set nominations in the guideline. It is only very rarely used, and I do not know how you actually set it up. I doubt the FPC bot can handle a set nomination, for example. Alternatively, you may want to try as a Valued image set candidate, see also COM:VICR. This process works (with some manual assistance) for image sets. --Slaunger (talk) 20:38, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Their trunks are sharp end well-defined, but as we move out to the smaller branches and twigs everything is smeared out.

But I may be wrong... --Slaunger (talk) 22:11, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I like it. The composition and technical quality is good (high DOF, very little noise), the dusk light is delicate. It is difficult to take an interesting photo of a subject which normally is perceived as - perhaps - boring. But you do that well. Some observations though: The three lit logos for the Familjebostäder at the ground floor level are partially blown, and it hard to recognise the logos. At least for me it took some time to realise it is the same symbol higher up one of the buildings. If you did bracketed exposure you can maybe recover some details with some exposure blending? There is some motion blur on some leaves of some trees to the right due to the 5 s exposure, acceptable for me though. --Slaunger (talk) 20:12, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Thank you very much for your careful review. There is a single shot and no bracketing. I did adjusted the highlight, but there are limits even for D7000's superb dynamic range.--ArildV (talk) 20:33, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
      • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Yep. I realize that for a single shot, this is very good. It is a pity you did not do a bracketed exposure now that you had everything set up with a tripod and all... I really can't support with the partially blown logos, sorry. --Slaunger (talk) 20:43, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

  • But then it may cause a blurred foreground as in the musroom shot above because the subject is perched on flat ground. Othervise I too prefer this suggestion here and whenever possible. Jkadavoor (talk) 13:32, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Actually, I think this is a very good tip. I have tried it myself before, getting great results. You have to be careful with the foreground yes, but it can be done nicely. Unfortunately, this was a city shot, taken in a park: I had to cut out a yellow edge of a sidewalk on top. Taking the shot from floor level would have shown a very distracting background. --Paolo Costa (talk) 21:58, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

I don't know such a rule, but not every comment should be according to a certain rule. I don't see why it is tif, one can't open it to full resolution without downloading the file. I think it should be converted. Tomer T (talk) 15:22, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

File name is too long and not relevant (it cannot be a Hubble image, as mountains are visible at the horizon...). Description is way too long, not informative about the image itself and completely outside the question. Tif format is no problem IMO, as this format is allowed for Commons uploads. -- MJJR (talk) 21:43, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

This is an artists concept, ofcourse.

    • A shoot-through umbrella with a remote flash was held by a friend just to the right of the frame close to the mushrooms to create a soft light source. The rear left lighting is just the sun filtering through the rain and clouds. It could be emulated with another shoot-through umbrella or softbox (I did have more equipment in my pack). Fill is achieved with ambient light by adjusting shutter speed. In addition, the whole thing was stacked with CombineZP to maximize the depth of field. JJ Harrison (talk) 11:48, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
      • Thanks a lot. I doubt I could emulate this easily, but I'll have that in mind if I hunt for mushrooms some day. - Benh (talk) 14:18, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
        • FWIW, The lighting gear was just cheap eBay stuff, probably under $50 worth excluding the flash. JJ Harrison (talk) 02:16, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
          • I was more questioning my skills than my gear ;). I don't have shot through umbrella, but was thinking about using reflective cone instead to diffuse light and playing with flash intensity and exposure time to get it right as you did. Maybe I'll have a shopping session on eBay and check. Thanks again. - Benh (talk) 08:18, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Nice and clear, but the composition lets it down. Photo will also be more valuable if the pedestal and inscription was included in the photo. --NJR_ZA (talk) 19:50, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment {removed file link, up for deletion} I gave it a rotate and crop. Opinions as to whether this image can be improved in similar ways? Feel free to use the page I uploaded for changes.--Canoe1967 (talk) 18:45, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think if any adjustment should be made, it is to straighten the verticals with a perspective correction (not a mere rotation) from the original photo. The rotation above is actually makes the problem worse, and the long edge of the platform mustn't be made horizontal as it is at a considerable angle to the viewer. I agree the crop isn't ideal. Either take from higher up to get the horse's feet, or include the base. Colin (talk) 12:13, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Yes, that made it worse. Like Colin said, when rotating, always look at vertical lines, not the horizontal ones. But as this was made at 82&nbps;mm (18.1 times 4.55, correct me if I'm wrong), it should be possible to walk a little further away and get a better angle. --Julian H. (talk/files) 10:18, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
