And why is there a so large difference between the criteria here and in Wikipedia?Alvesgaspar 12:50, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
it's a guideline not a rule, it's for encouraging people to only nominate pictures with a reasonable resolution. If it has a low resolution it might be exceptional in all other points and still become featured. -- Gorgo 14:00, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

As a newbie here (but not to photography, I’m afraid), I feel really flattered for all the attention given to my humble opinions. Honestly (we are talking here of intellectual honesty, of course), I believe this picture does not deserve a FP status. As I have said before in another discussion, there is little excuse for not producing an optimal shot when we have controlled conditions. In the present case, and because the subject does not have any exceptional interest, it is expected the picture to be technically perfect. I gave the opportunity to the author to improve the image a little before using my vote. If he had decided to do that, I probably wouldn’t have opposed the nomination.

    • Pictogram voting info.svg InfoThanks, I appreciate the critique. I'm a bit confused though. My understanding is that this is a forum to provide material which could be useful to creating informative wikipedia articles. This picture show how tightly bundled this school of striped eel catfish is. This is in fact the way they school in the wild, especially the juveniles. Hence the "noise" is intentional to show this behavior. As for the focus, I think the nearest catfish are in focus and you can clearly count the eight barbels which also identifies these to be catfish. The out of focus catfish in the back of the school also adds to the "noise". I would be happy to take any suggestions as to how this could be improved. Perhaps cropping it? Jnpet 15:40, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
      Just to point that out: Commons are not just for providing material for wikipedia, but for all wikimedia projects. In addition: It would be nice, if you could provide this additional information here on the image description page, too. Kindly, norro 13:14, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment In this context (digital photography) "noise" doesn't mean "confusion" but the presence of random coloured "grain" and artifacts caused by the camera sensor or the file compressing process. This is most common in the parts of the image less iluminated. To have all the fish focused it would be necessary to use a smaller lens aperture in order to have a larger depth-of-field. I don't think cropping would solve the problem. - Alvesgaspar 23:52, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose small DOF and very confusing norro 13:15, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I really appreciate everyone's input. I'm not necesarilly new to photography, but I am somewhat new to underwater photography, which I find can be somewhat challenging at times. Under water, things appear to be bigger than they actually are, an optical illusion caused by the water itself, so when focusing on something it can be a bit difficult to find the right focus to click, especially when you are looking into a tiny digital window when placing the subject in the frame. Light is another problem, the water naturally filters out colors and the deeper you go, the bluer it gets. Reds are the first to go and so you need to have flash to bring out the colors. But the flash has a tendency to white out underwater as the water itself reflects the flash. Best way to counter this is to use a strobe light, an expensive bit of equipment I have yet to invest in. Random colored grains was mentioned, this could be things floating in the water. It could be plankton or sand and it's not always possible to control. From this and the other two pictures I have submitted so far it seems DOF is my biggest correctable problem. I'm somewhat limited to the lens I have for the camera, as it's put in a water proof casing, however, I'm thinking that perhaps I am better off shooting on wide focus, then crop the picture afterwards. Some of the subjects are very small, and I'm not sure how well they will show. At any rate, I have a few more shots of some unusual creatures, which I hope will be useful to Wiki and all its projects, which I'll be submitting over the next few weeks and look forward to the input.

    • Depends on the positioning of the flash(es). Under water colour is lost quite quickly with depth (red is first to go). To make a lifelike picture of an underwater creature, a flash or other auxilliary illumination is unavoidable...

But there have been some. And your HDR version is based on his edited version. The unedited version is here. The problems is the lighter the dark areas become, the more noise is visible. If he had taken 3+ different exposures for each shot this would not be a problem. Digon3 15:38, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
I did recognize that my version was an edit :-) That's why it's scaled down and overwritten by the original. The idea was to give the photographer an idea. I fully agree that this picture can't be fixed.

At these focal lengths on an SLR, the moon usually looks like litte more than a dot. Perhaps, high cirrus is further diffusing the light from the moon before illuminating the mid level clouds. -- Solipsist 08:43, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This is as it came out of the camera other than some straighting of the horizon. The shot was slightly tilted. Auto White balance, taken with my D200, and the 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor that came in the kit. It was almost an afterthought shot. I had been wanting a long shot with the telephot to compress the shot, but the moon had come up obsured and not that great of a shot. Took a few, had removed my 80-200, and replaced it with the walking around lens, and the moon popped up and I saw it going towards the cloud bank.

In the new days, high ISO speeds are used under low light conditions, yielding what is called "noise" or the equivalent of grain. In this particular case, the subject was taken in its natural environment, late in the afternoon, under low light conditions. Using a lower ISO speed would have resulted in a blurred picture due to having to use lower shutter speeds. So, what do we want? a picture with noise (or grain) that is relatively sharp and considering the limitations of technology or a picture with low noise (or grain) that is blurred by movement? As in the old days, we have a grainy picture due to limitations of technology with a relatively frozen subject, and a bit low DOF that is not important in the general context of the image. So, the adverse conditions were: 1. low light 2. Hight ISO thus more noise 3. A moving subject and the result? 1. a relatively frozen subject. 2. A picture rich in content and context, 3. a close up of an elusive subject. Under adverse conditions, one must always sacrifice something. But point taken, next time I will carry studio equipment, tranquilizers and hire more crocs, and a platform to replace the mangrove so I can use a tripod... :o) --Tomascastelazo 16:42, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
    • One more comment, to consider not necessarily for this image, but all images in general. Difficulty degree in photography judging is almost always an important variable, and judges are required to read the clues that point to that. In this case, digital photography lacks the dynamic range of analog photography. Dynamic range is the capacity of film (or chip) to register tonal differences within an image. So, here we have a subject that belongs to the middle of the tonal range of a gray scale with acceptable detail, and in the shade. The water reflects the sky in a manner that it is represented by aprox zone IX in the gray scale. That means the the light differential between a subject in the shade and a subject outside the shade is basically short, as neither the main subject is blocked towards the low side of the scale, well within the texture range, and neither the sky is blocked toward the high end of the scale (during the day, the reflection of the sky would have been extremely overexposed). So we have two subjects that belong to two different light conditions (and scales), sharing one tonal scale, in a medium that is known for a short dynamic range... (and I will spare you the details of climbing over mangroves...) Draw your conclusions. --Tomascastelazo 17:06, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

In the present case, and although we do not have fully controlled conditions, we can still wait for a better opportunity: a better light, a more cooperative animal, a more sophisticated camera or simply a younger, more patient and courageous photographer capable of mounting a tripod near the nose of the beast and wait for the oportunity.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I’m sorry if I have offended the readers of this page; that was not my intention. But I don’t like to be lectured about the way a picture should be evaluated and how I should act as a reviewer, especially by the author of the photograph under review. That is indeed a subtle form of impoliteness, much worse for me than any childish joke about my poor intelligence. Please forgive me of my mention to age. But again, I had no intention to offend; chances are that I’m much older than most reviewers here. Alvesgaspar 20:45, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I do not mind criticism, in fact, I welcome it truly, and my intention is not to lecture but to bring light into the world of photography. However, I firmly believe that there is a difference between liking a picture and evaluating a picture. Personal taste is just that, personal, and nothing can be said about that. If a person does not like cats, he/she just doesn't like cats, but it does not mean that a picture of a cat is either bad or lacks photographic merit. One must raise above personal likes or dislikes and recognize, according to well based criteria, the photographic merit of certain images, including those of subjects we may not like. In my opinion, value criteria is often either lacking or displaced. I read tons of oppose comments alluding to "technical flaws" such as noise or color or burned out areas or DOF, etc., etc., that make people miss the point of value of the image, specifically the encyclopedic value, on top of being totally baseless from the technical and photographic point of view, and depriving Wikipedia of a valuable opportunity to motivate people to participate and contribute. I see an over reliance of software trickery that hide the true nature of photographic talent and technique. Alvesgaspar, if you read my "lecturing" that brought about this unpleasant exchange, there was nothing in it that pointed to flaws in your judgement on the personal level, but was limited to technical explanations and well known photographic judging principles, in the spirit of raising awarness of how to judge photographs, not my photographs. I have been around photography for 35 years, and although I may not be the best photographer nor the most knowledgeable person in photography, I have accumulated lots of tricks and knowledge, which I will gladly share. This is not an arrogant statement, for whatever little knowledge I may have is useless to me, I already have it, it is only useful in the measure that it can be shared. I offer it to you and anyone who wants it. Just ask.--Tomascastelazo 04:01, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Any comments welcome. I'm expecting opposition for decreasing sharpness towards top/bottom - unfortunately I couldn't figure out to avoid this at the macro level using my off-the-shelf digicam. However, you may want to take into account that the object of interest basically is a recurring pattern, so I doubt any encyclopedic value or detail is lost by this. --Contributor 19:46, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose My problem with this picture is it is cut off on the left. Decreasing sharpness towards top/bottom is not that big of a problem. --Digon3 20:14, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
I see. Do you find the cut-off simply unpleasant (ie. image too narrow) or do you miss something? The problem is that the knurled part has a length of several centimeters and is therefore too large for full depiction at this close-up level with my equipment. So I had to make a choice and picked one of end points of the knurling to contrast it with the normal surface. Still, it is true that I cropped it even further on the left/right afterwards, mainly because I didn't feel there's any value in it if a) a full depiction is out of question and b) the main subject, ie. the diamond knurling pattern itself, but also the normal surface, stays exactly the same (no matter how wide the picture) anyway and c) perspective distortion was beginning was beginning to show at the farther l/r. Anyway, thanks for the input. --Contributor 21:26, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

There is only one band. As I already tried to state above: due to its wideness I can't show it in its entirety at the necessery level of detail (=distance) with my current equipment.

The crucial point here is how to get to the 0.07 and that's is the only thing, that probably remains unclear to the layman. That has to be improved. Furtermore I think, animating is not necassary here. The last frame would be sufficient. Perhaps as SVG :) norro 17:14, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Info The "0,07" is read directly in the vernier (which is graduated in 1/100 cm), at the exact point where there is a coincidence between segments of the vernier scale and the main scale. - Alvesgaspar 17:31, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Yes, I know that, but I can't imagine a layman understanding that. There is no hint, why it's 0,07. There is nothing in that animation that shows, what you explained here in written form.

I think that is a good idea. Alvesgaspar 09:25, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don’t agree that the depicted pi has 4 000 digits. The size of the digits is decreasing linearly becoming zero in the last fifth of the image. Assuming, for simplicity, that we have about 70% of the 1280 pixels available for representing the number (about 900 pixels), and that we assign one pixel to each digit and another to the space between them, the best we can do is represent about 450 digits, not 4000. Alvesgaspar 09:24, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment To answer the person above of me. You are partially right because around 900(not 450) are fully visible. The rest are there but because if the glossy reflections on the glass and the irregular lighting, the rest of the numbers are overly bright. But I can guarantee you that there is 4000 numbers, If you are furthur interrested E-mail me and I'll give you the complete Maya file and you can see for yourself. The Author 07:10 EST, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm sure you have considered all 4000 digits in the rendering application, but that is not the point. The point is to represent each of them as a separate graphical entity you need, at least, 2 pixels: one for the digit and the other for the space that follows. In the present case, you don't have enough pixels avaliable. But you could, at least in theory, make a new output with a much larger resolution in which all digits were visible.

The crucial point here is how to get to the 0.07 and that's is the only thing, that probably remains unclear to the layman. That has to be improved.

Pretty work but not encyclopedial.B.navez 14:59, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
    • As filename says - it's COA of województwo łęczyckie (voivodship) in IRP, what means 1st Republic of Poland - Poland in XVII-XVIII century. Best known in the world Polish COAs are drawn by Taduesz Gajl, and are fully modern, 20th century design, but noone says that they are unhistorical :)--WarX 11:16, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Sorry, but I don't understand : is it Bastianow's work or Gajl's ? Could you please translate exactly what is said on pl:Tadeusz Gajl about copyright rules  : (Herby gajlowskie są bardzo często wykorzystywane bez wiedzy autora, czego nie uniknęła również angielska wersja Wikipedii, jednak autor zaakceptował pozostawienie w niej jego grafik w niskiej rozdzielczości.) My knowledge of polish language is so low that I could misunderstand its meaning. B.navez 15:23, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
        • This particular one was drawn by Bastianowm, based on some historical materials and has nothing in common with Gajl's COAs (except that they are modern). Problem with Gajl is/was that people think that his works are historical, so are PD, and use scans of his works. He was informed about it and agreed to use low-res versions on Wikipedia, but problem is unsolved, because if he agreed on GFDL for low-res, he agreed for vectorization those images to resolution independent format (as derivative work from GFDLed image). The quote is COAs drawn by Gajl are often used without knowledge (and permission), what happen even to en.wiki, but author accepted publication of low-res images--WarX 15:32, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

However, the many elements of the plant compete with main subject darting in and out of focus, thus making the image too busy. Think of an autofocus camera that doesn´t quite know where to focus.

    • What would make you even imply this is a bad faith nomination?! Maybe because it's not a landscape or nature shot...? – flamurai 17:21, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Let me say again: I made that comment and did not use my vote because I am convinced this is a good faith nomination. But I failed, till now, to understand the beauty and/or the relevance of the picture as a FP. I understand how an expansion joint works but I don't see anything extraordinary is this illustration Alvesgaspar 21:51, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Alvesgaspar - You can see the shape of the rails, they are wedge type, one endng in a sharp point, that so whe they expand and contract, they do so in basically the same axis, so the contraction and expansion occurrs in a sliding action between joining rails thus retaining a straight line, otherwise, a buckling of the rails would occur, or a gap in case of contraction. --Tomascastelazo 17:59, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - useful photo, as per uploader. Railway lines expand when they get hot; if no expansion space is provided, they then buckle. The photo shows sliding contacts between two rails to allow for expansion without buckling. - MPF 16:37, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support very special case. Of course you have to think for some minutes to understand it. If you're not interested enough you might never understand. But for this subject the perspective is perfect: It's the way you would see it when standing in front of it. Subject exposure is perfect and the snow explains the cold (not distracting). I also like the artistic value. Colours are nice and you can loose yourself in the image because there is no horizon or scale. Given this subject any other picture will either be too technical or too artsy. --Ikiwaner 20:13, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Anyways, I noticed this expansion joint for the first time on the GWB in NYC and took the pic out of curiosity. There was no way to get a better angle, and to my knowledge there was no picture of this contraption anywhere on wikimedia servers. It would loose context with tighter cropping and I feel it depicts the subject reasonably well. But quite honestly I don't think it deserves/needs to be a featured picture. --Dschwen 10:41, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose price of coffee in which country?, why aggregate tax and transport: not the same thing. There is a minor translation mistake (Löhne = salary, not loan). There is an implicit message which i find wrong: "planters workers are badly paid", truth is that if you show the salaries of each subgroup (planter's, roaster's, vendor's, transporter's) they are probably paid there fair share of the final product, if it is (individually) low, it is most probably because third world economies are not efficient and mechanized, not because WE, end consumers, abuse the situation.
