All in all, I fail to see the "wow" in this digital replication – the sheer size of 11,915 × 7,254 pixels is nice, but not too unusual anymore nowadays. --El Grafo (talk) 17:31, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It's a well-chosen image of an (ahem) echt-German townscape, but ... while it has great EV for this it is also compositionally unexceptional (the technical way of saying "no wow") and in fact some of the foliage in the front is a little unsharp. Lovely color, I will say. Daniel Case (talk) 00:25, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
    • I understand your first point. "No wow" is a subjective matter, unfortunately I cannot change it - In the past I've also opposed due to "too less Wow", but most of these cases were less important single buildings photographed at neutral light. The point with the foliage is unclear to me: The foliage at the left front has nothing to do with the main motive (panoramic view) but has only the function to get an impression of the spatial distances - I see no reason why these should be as sharp as the houses. Does the term echt-German really exist?--Tuxyso (talk) 05:40, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The underexposed foliage on left top and bottom is distracting. I prefer this AOV. JKadavoor Jee 07:02, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
    • Sorry, but the panorama you linked to is not convincing, especially regarding quality, composition is also not concvincing. I took a similar shot but unfortunately with distracting cars. I cannot really understand why the reviewers here focus on the (unimportant) leafs rather than on the motive. The leafs function only as framing to the panoramic view - this a quite common shooting techique (see comment above regarding spatial distances). ✓ Done Nonetheless I have slightly brightened the leafs in the foreground. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:21, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
      • Leaves are OK now. I like your other composition more; the green foliage is well distributed than center weighted here. (Although I'm a nature lover; I have much tolerance to other fellow humans and their basic necessities like cars.

Diagram of C4 photosynthesis.
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Some plants such as corn have evolved some modifications to photosynthesis, increasing its efficiency by separating the light reactions (oxygen generating phase) from the dark reactions (sugar generating phase). One modification is C4 photosynthesis (The NADP-ME version is depicted here). C4 photosynthesis is complicated. I made this poster to make it slightly more understandable. :)

Sources
[1], [2], [3], [4], File:C4 photosynthesis NADP-ME type.svg, and the C4 photosynthesis article.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Honestly spoken: Yes, this picture is on the one hand too complicated (much text, not very clearly represented - one have too look very closely), but on the other side it is not sufficient presented in a biochemical way, e. g. the PEPCK- and the ME-NAD-typ are neglected impo). What we have here is maybe a good picture for a poster, but I think for a wiki-article it is not suitable. --Yikrazuul (talk) 17:09, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
  • I focused on the NADP-ME type, because in previous diagrams, whenever I tried to do a "generic" version of a pathway, it never turned out well. This time I just did corn NADP-ME because corn is the most well known C4 plant (other than crabgrass) and the NADP-ME version is the simplest. Also, pictures on Commons are not just for wikipedia articles. That is an EnFP criterion, not a Commons FP one.—Kelvinsong (talk) 17:48, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Do not get me wrong: I like your pictures, that is true. You have well proven your outstanding craftsmanship of difficult pictures. But this one goes a little bit too far in a certain way as mentioned, maybe even a little bit too simplified and hence misleading. --Yikrazuul (talk) 20:30, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Alright, do you want me to throw in all the other small details like the pyrophosphate, aspartate, etc? Maybe throw in the PEPCK and NADME mitochondrion in those variant pathways too? Because what happens when you do that is you start to get a lot of asterices and a lot of branching and sidenotes. Take a look at a standard picture of a plant or animal cell in a textbook. There is a lot of diversity in cell types, but you don't see acrosomes or T-tubules or statoliths in those pictures, because you illustrate the simplest version of a structure or pathway that exists.—Kelvinsong (talk) 14:17, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

I was just voting on the photo, if I have to consider about circumstances of photographers then I can't vote. I think... --Laitche (talk) 05:08, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
I'm talking about the size of the photo, not the circumstances of the photographers. I'll explain. If I had taken this photo with a D800, it is likely that the size and has not been a problem, however, the value of a d800 is equivalent to the price of a big house in my country. Where I'm going with all this?, Attach too much importance to the size automatically kills any chance of a photograph of an underdeveloped country. Then, the number of people with FP becomes elite. In summary, the current requirements are sufficient, plus size probably go over there, but not yet. --Wilfredor (talk) 12:21, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
What I'm saying is that about the size as this kind of pic not all pics and image size is not big point to oppose. I think they don't need D800's pixels (7,360 × 4,912). I would support when a photo is good if the size is small like this one ✿ --Laitche (talk) 13:49, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

While I agree the detail on the gate isn't good enough for FP (compare File:Duomo Out S5.jpg), the perspective "distortion" can't be "corrected". The top of the gate is further away and features at the top are observed from below. No mathematical algorithm can change the viewpoint to half-way up the gate or further back. Such software fixes only really work with essentially flat subjects or where the degree of correction required is small. The solution is to take the photograph from futher back (and higher-up if possible), though that isn't easy with a popular tourist spot. And this gate is so detailed, that a stitched image would be beneficial. Colin (talk) 17:32, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose as above. A solution could be using a tilt/shift lens -- Arcalino (talk) 19:35, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
He he. Excuse me for labouring the point but no, that won't help either. Sure, the verticals with be straight and the focus would be sharp from top-to-bottom, but the viewpoint of features towards the top of the image will still be "from below" rather than "straight on". One could probably get away with this for the ironwork of the gate but not the 3D surround. Also, do you realise that your "solution" (T/S lens + full-frame camera) costs approximately 100x the equipment used here? :-) If one can't get further back to take the whole pic straight-on then other ideas are making the perspective a feature (shoot from real close up) to emphasise the height, or just focus on an interesting part of the gate. Colin (talk) 21:30, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
  • I completely agree with Colin: Artificially rectangulating (is that even a real word?) the gate would certainly do more harm than good. Apart from that, lack of sharpness etc. prevents me from dupporting → Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose --El Grafo (talk) 11:10, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

If the window was created before 1923, {{PD-old-auto-1923|1926}} might be the right choice for the window. Please add the year of creation to the description so we can figure out what template fits best here. If you wish to keep an additional CC-0 tag for your part of the work, that should be fine I guess. I have also added {{Creator:Louis Majorelle}} to the "author=" field (in addition to your name). BTW: All this basically applies to all the files in the category. Sorry for being such a pedant – I'll be happy to support as soon as that's resolved. --El Grafo (talk) 14:06, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

    I have no doubt that this is fixable – would already have done that myself if the year of creation had been available. I wouldn't even insist on {{Art photo}} – looks like a real monster of a template ;-) --El Grafo (talk) 15:12, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
    Hi, thanks for pointing this issue out. Actually, it is not {{PD-1923}}, since the stained glass were created in 1928 (and designed / conceived earlier). However, Majorelle, the copyright holder, died in 1926, so the artwork was in public domain in France in 1996 (as early as 1985 because at that time PD was 50 years postmortem). So PD-1996. Léna (talk) 19:37, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

But from a photographic viewpoint this is "only" a good photograph of a lake with its bank - imho nothing special, same as this, this, this or this. I also do not see interesting light or a real eye-catcher. Nonetheless the post-processing (color, noise management on dark areas and sharpness) is quite good. --Tuxyso (talk) 12:22, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
    Normally I hate to comment FPC votes, but I must say it's a quite poor comparison. Here, we have some dramatic atmosphere due to rippled waters and heavy clouds. To me, the scenery looks like a painting. On Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Natural, one can see lots of much more "ordinary" shots. --A.Savin 19:20, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
    I see your point, but the photo does not work this way for me. I do not see "heavy clouds", sorry. I made a circumstantial comment instead of writing only "no wow" to explain my problems with this nomination. On FPC there are often subjective impressions which make the difference because at least 90% of the FPCs are wihtout doubt technically very good (as the nomination here). Please regard my vote as it is - as very subjective assessment. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:58, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As far as I'm concerned, it's not the tone of the colors or something like that, it's the lack of color. When I saw the thumbnail first, I thought it was black and white only. It looks a bit like absolutely everything in this scene was covered by a thick layer of soot. Whether one considers theat to be "artistic" or "unrealistic" is of course in the eye of the beholder. Apart from that, there is a significant amount of noise in large parts of the image – the most obvious areas are e.g. the spire in the background, the building on the left or those flag-like signs mounted to the poles along the road. --El Grafo (talk) 14:05, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

I took a back lighted shot to get a b/w or sepia appearance. If you look at the sky, you won´t find usual or "natural" colours, neither in mine than in the example files. This is what it often looks like in the evening in this area. (By the way, "Self-praise is no recommendation", so I pull back my own support. :) )--Caecilius Mauß (talk) 20:11, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

    • Thanks for the review. Pictogram voting question.svg Question Do you mean distortions at the building or at the border of the photo at the leafs? Distortion at the borders are inevitable with wide-angle (10mm x 1.5) perspectives. But imho the leafs build a nice framing for the castle. Also note that the tower in the center is not vertically straight (see other photos in the category) --Tuxyso (talk) 10:57, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
      • Yes, I've noticed the 10mm, so distortions are unavoidable, in the leaves for this picture. Maybe a little less vegetation (with 12mm or more) would have been enough to frame the castle but I don't know the place and it's pretty nice the way it is. --Selbymay (talk) 11:50, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
        • Thanks for the info. What do you (and the others) think about this alternative crop? I am not sure. Imho the nomination with the centered compositon is more dramatic. --Tuxyso (talk) 13:00, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

1 day old chick hatchling weighing 28 grams.
it would look like this with no handle on the spoon Penyulap
The chick is in a hatching factory I expect, there is equipment used there, like incubators and cages. The chick is standing in what looks a lot like a spoon, used to reach out to the bottom of the cage that the chick is in and pick it up. Without the handle, it would look strange to chicken wranglers. Penyulap 11:10, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
Actually, if I rotated the handle so it is hidden behind the chick, then it would look like a chick with a little black mohawk Ras.gif Penyulap 16:04, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

uncanny irony of modern Korean history
This photo is one Korean friends' middle school years.
(back row) The rightest is Yun Dong-ju. He was talented for literature and has been highly acclaimed at home. In university, he was arrested by Japanese Empire for writing poems of resistance. And was dead by medical experiment on a living body. It was 1945, only 6 months earlier than Empire's fall.
(back low) The leftest is Chang Chun-ha. He was drafted by Japanese Imperial Army but ran away to became Korean segregationist soldier. After Korean independence, he became a journalist. His periodical Sa-sang-ge("The System of Idea") triggered April revolution(1960). In 1975, while he planning unidentified conspiracy against dictator, was assassinated by unkown someone.
(back row) The center is Moon Ik-hwan. He became Presbyterian minister and took part in retranslation of Korean Bible in 1970s. After Chang(the leftest)'s dead, He devoted himself to movement for democracy. He died of a heart failure on January 18, 1994.
(front row) He is Chung Il-kwon. In 1940s, he joined the Manchu State(which was a puppet state of Japanese Empire) army and became military police captain. After Empire's fall, he transfered to Korean Nation's Army and distareged as full general. He cooperated President Park Jeong-hee, who was militant dictator. So he became the prime minister and the chairman of the national assembly. He died on Jenuary 17, 1994, almost same day of Moon(the center of back low).
This photo is more than only middle schooler friends' photo. This is an irony itself of modern Korean history.
Symbol support vote.svg Support this photograph expresses that these schoolmates were all close each other during their middle school years, but their path of life became totally different. I think this picture depicts the historical irony well. -- Shyoon1 (talk) 21:33, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment There is a little CA, see image note for an example. Not a huuuuge problem, but if it is fixable? Also the projection really gets stretched at the etches, at the limit of what is reasonable for this projection, probably because the field-of-view is large. Nice colors and light. --Slaunger (talk) 21:18, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The sky looks much oversaturated, has some noise (probably from sharpening the clouds) and shows a strange brightness distribution: The center of the sky is less bright than the borders (polarizer + wide angle lens?). The sharpness at the left side of the fassade is at the low end. Nonetheless a good composition but in the current version no FP for me. --Tuxyso (talk) 21:48, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
