      • Down sampling is allowed if it doesn't delete information and the picture isn't down sampled to an extended degree. Or do you think, that every panorama shown here is at its maximum resolution? As for the example..I didn't vote for that one, but I'm voting for this one. --Massimo Catarinella (talk) 16:52, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Composition, lack of contrast, colours, common subject, lack of wow. The FPX should've just been left there. –Dilaudid 18:16, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Considering the general difficulty for FPCs to become FP, it becomes easy to determine the images who will obviously not make it to FP. The purpose of FPX is to quickly remove images that will accumulate 9 days of "Oppose". FPX should have been left there IMO, and "support" should not be used to make a point against FPX. I would like, norro, that you explain why you think this image should be recognized as "the best of the best of Commons" (currently: 1400 FP over 3400000 media files = 0.04%)? --S23678 (talk) 13:19, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Although I would like to express support for norro's right to support the image, I don't see anything very special. --che 14:38, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think only obvious technical flaws should be a reason to use FPX, that image is not that bad and there is nothing extremely wrong with it. And even if it stays here for 9 days and only gets opposing votes .. so what. Composition is quite a subjective matter and everybody thinks different about that, please use the FPX-template with care, as it might seem quite offensive to someone new here. -- Gorgo (talk) 22:03, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral My concerns here are subjective, but not enough to oppose. First, about the panorama: I don't think the left third of the image has anything valuable to be showned. Second is about the picture itself: I would expect a little more from this scenery: wheather, light condition, etc, to give a "mood" to the picture. It is a very good picture, but the scene has the potential for more I think. --S23678 (talk) 13:02, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

    • Your maths is a bit of a joke... It is over two megapixels and I reserve the right to maintain the non-downsampled photographs for private sale. Noodle snacks (talk) 08:39, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

          • 1 Mpx = 1024 kpx and 1kpx is 1024 px. Am I missing something? And BTW, guidelines state that downsampling should not be encouraged. You are perfectly welcome to upload small versions of your images, but don't expect them to be featured then. The private sale argument is a non-issue. If some want to use your picturse commercially and don't want to stick to the free licenses, they will pay anyway. Lycaon (talk) 09:01, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
            • 1 Mpx = 1000000 pixels not 1048576 pixels. Flying Freddy (talk) 09:10, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
              • Ok, maybe I confused with Mb ;-). Still the downsampling is 1 on 5, which is IMO unacceptable. Instead of uploading the largest possible size (as per guidelines), some users make it a game to upload the smallest possible size they can get away with and that is sad and pitiable. Lycaon (talk) 09:20, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
                • Actually the image is a square crop from the original rectancular frame, so 1:5 is an exagguration. The actual scaling means its more than 50% the size of the original on each dimension. If you have a look at some of my other current nominations there are some quite large ones there, so it varies from image to image. Noodle snacks (talk) 09:27, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

  • "Images should not be downsampled (sized down in order to appear of better quality)." Mentions nothing about downsampling to maintain a commercial license. FWIW, the example image on the guidelines page for downsampling is a FP. Muhammad 18:03, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

        • That really is not a valid reason to oppose ; size is above requirements. Many many people downsample their pictures here, and don't get opposed for that. Benh (talk) 22:03, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
          • In that case the guidelines should be rephrased, they currently say "it is important that nominated pictures have as high a resolution as possible" and to me that sounds as downsampling actually is a valid reason to oppose. /Daniel78 (talk) 23:33, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Millions of people use Wikipedia on a daily basis and see your work. Further more, every large editor who will be interested in your pictures wants a Tif-version of the photo. Since all files are jpg, large editors will probably not use them (correct me if I'm wrong here).

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment We really have got to rephrase that part of the guidelines about the size. To me the opposes aren't justified here because the picture is > 2mpix. No matter what hardware was used, the result is good. Had this picture been taken with a 2mpix camera, no one would have opposes. And if it's the best Commons can offer on the subject, why would we reject it ? I suggest Noodle Snack to buy a 2 mpix camera, to take the same pictures with it, and renominate them here to avoid these sorts of votes. Benh (talk) 22:29, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Downsampling ! I have no absolute religion against downsampling, but if you put a featurable downsampled version on Commons and keep another not downsampled version for selling, then you will get big confusion about published pictures. As featured images are to be widely scattered, we must do it very clear. Author rights apply to the work, not to the pixels. That's my opinion. --B.navez (talk) 03:33, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
    • Your opinion is irrelevant as far as the law is concerned. There is a huge list of current downsampled featured pictures, oppositions based on downsampling are a case of bias more than anything else. Take a look at the top 10 photographs for the Commons Picture of the Year last year. Only one was clearly not downsampled, and one may have been a crop or a downsample. The remainder were clearly downsampled. Voting fairly against downsampling in all cases would knock out a majority of the best images on commons (including all of fir0002's contributions and I believe a majority of Diliff's). Noodle snacks (talk) 05:02, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
      • Maybe another way to look at "downsampling" opposes is that since 35 mm film can capture at ~10 MPix ( a guess for sure, but current digital cameras can) then a downsampled version, say ~2 Mpix, can easily be remade with better quality.--Commander Keane (talk) 06:46, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

    • Both are the same Pictures, that should be ideally equal. The only difference is storage format. The better and more valuable file is the SVG version (left image), even if the renderer of wikipedia sucks in displaying it. This is the real work. A with Inkscape exported version is the better looking PNG-File. So all votes count for the first (left) image, even if you may use the PNG-Version for an article, because the wp renderer sucks (but maybe improved over time). --Niabot (talk) 13:27, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
      • If, as you claim, the Wiki renderer sucks, then how can we assess objectively that the SVG version was properly constructed? My own SVG's (which, I admit, are far less complex) render just fine. Lycaon (talk) 10:23, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
        • You can use any newer Version of Opera, Firefox or Inkscape to verify the result of the SVG-File. But be patient, the renderingspeed of Firefox and Opera is not very good. The results are just fine, even if Firefox does only implement about 50% of the SVG standard. --Niabot (talk) 17:47, 2 November 2008 (UTC) PS: We have many images that are showing bugs with librsvg.

There was a still photo taken by a professional photographer which was zoomed in tight on the rocket lifting off while still at the launch pad. This view framed with the sky and mountains is unique - no one else got any view similar to this shot. This is the best resolution available on this view. Ikluft (talk) 10:57, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I think (and hope I can convince enough others) that there's "wow" in the event and experience it conveys. That wide field of view was actually an intentional part of the presentation, the way I hoped the shot would turn out. My experience from photographing high-power (hobby) rocket launches was that you don't zoom in too much on a supersonic rocket's launch without highly increased risk of getting a picture of the smoke at the pad with the rocket long gone. Here's an example. And even when you get some of those close-ups, you get better variety of the views with wider shots if you can get the rocket near the top of the frame. It's a tough shot to get, because these kinds of rockets are nearly or already supersonic by that point. But it's a more rewarding view. (I did also get a shot of the CSXT launch at liftoff still at the pad as shown in the photo presentation of the launch.) A benefit of a wider shot like this is that it also shares with the viewer what it was like to be there at the historic moment. Ikluft (talk) 19:20, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Yeah, that's generally why there's a 2 megapixel guideline. Some votes here could see past that and accept the history it records as a mitigating factor, which the rules do allow. I wish some had considered more favorably that this is a good shot of a very difficult subject since the rocket was around transonic speed (breaking the sound barrier) at the time of the photo. The event is nothing short of "WOW" - that is the value of this photo and the reason why I offered it. But right now it's falling well short of the 2/3 mark and will fail if there aren't a lot of support votes in the last day of voting. I was advised on my talk page to take this to Wikipedia where it exceeds the minimum resolution there. And the topic area is also given more weight. So that's probably what I'll do. Thanks for considering it. Ikluft (talk) 02:59, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

    • Agree on the dusk comment (As I said at enwiki). If the lamps are low pressure sodium though (which they probably are for cost reasons) there'd be little point altering the white balance as the spectrum of the light would be pretty close to monochromatic anyway apart from two lines at around 590nm.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I would take it the tagging here refers to the exposure on the street lighting but that would be a pity because the subject is clear as a bell and the lights themselves only foreground for me and a very beautiful picture. Are focal areas and lens points not artistic matters? Distorted by a wide angle lens and unsharp about the streetlighting only? I wonder if you compare it to the odler version how nice a picture you may think. Isn't this sort of tag for a machine which seems incapable of producing a nice picture? The glare is a nice effect when seen with the roof lighting. I dare say that of such a beautiful building, no more pretty a picture coulb be taken. The items refered to in this tag may appear to be perspective and glow. (artifacts? I hope you don't mean the leaves :D) ~ R.T.G 03:43, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

    Sorry I don't know well the nomination process, but I assumed that votes were for the improved version, and that any previous votes would count for the improved version too. It seemed logical to me. How do you separate votes, on a separate page ? Does it start fresh ? It's not easy for people not accustomed to FPC :-/ le Korrigan bla 11:55, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
    • IMO it would be best to withdraw the current (original) image and start afresh with the edited one, then without opposing votes. As apart from correcting the tilt, the edit has also more compression, we cannot assume all support votes from before the correction to be carried over. Lycaon (talk) 21:39, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because the image is very noisy. 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.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This isn't sharp even when scaled down considerably, it will avoid misconstrued downsampling votes though :). The aperture chosen seems appropriate, so either focus was missed or the blur is camera shake related. I'd suggest bumping up your ISO from 100 to 200 or 400 to raise the shutter speed and reduce the probability of this happening as 1/320th is fairly borderline as far as getting sharp shots at 200mm goes. I also feel the crop should probably be a little tighter, I am not sure if your equipment's maximum magnification comes into play there. The natural lighting is quite nice but I think a little fill flash would not have gone astray so the stem and base of the rose were more visible. Identification of the rose would be nice too, w:Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Plants is quite useful for that purpose. Noodle snacks (talk) 05:11, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created and uploaded by Manuel González Olaechea - modified by diego_pmc - nominated by Benh (talk) 23:14, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This was proposed as replacement on delisting section, but original didn't get enough votes to be unfeatured. I'm nominating the edit here instead. Please don't forget the context before voting, this is to replace an old FP, which may not be bad enough to be delisted, but which may not be good enough to get featured by today standards. Benh (talk) 23:14, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral -- Benh (talk) 23:14, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I think quality (sharpness) for the smallish size disqualifies the picture according to current standards. Re-election is doubtful, maybe you should've left it at the replace-with-improved-version stage. Delisting would (and will) always be a risk for this one I'm afraid. Lycaon (talk) 09:47, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don't really understand why an already existing FP should not be replaced by the same picture, only improved. Anyway, I really don't think there is a point in having this pictured featured, while the other one is featured as well. I would rather reopen the delist nom. diego_pmc (talk) 17:01, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
  • I don't know any clear "deliste/replace" rule here. I wanted to replace the old FP by the improved version, but, despite consensus was for a replace, there wasn't enough delist votes on the delist nomination. I wanted to go ahead and replace it, but I had to follow the rules. I will work on a slight improvement of them tonight to avoid this happening again. Benh (talk) 09:57, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Whilst the technical quality is quite weak, I really like the composition. All in all not enough for a support, unfortunately. —αἰτίας discussion 01:48, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
result: 0 support, 1 oppose, 2 neutral => not featured (rule of the 5th day). Benh (talk) 11:20, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

  • that's a fact that this picture does not really respect exactly the size standarts, but this is not "small" , moreover, the movement is the interesting thing in this picture, that's why I keep thinking this could be a featured picture Adrille (talk) 16:08, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
    • It's easily possible to retake this image with higher resolution and less noise (noise is even visible in the thumbnail), so there are no mitigating circumstances like age or "once in a lifetime chance". -- Gorgo (talk) 14:41, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
