    • ✓ Done I've very slightly increased brightness and worked a bit on the sky. As far as I can remember I've used a polarizer. Is it a crime? The sun is about 45° to the right thus you have a certain gradient in the sky. Further corrections would destroy the mood of the image - I like the deep blue of the sky especially here very much. --Tuxyso (talk) 06:48, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Due to shadow areas especially all white building have a strong blue cast (try WB on the white areas there). All in all a photo with a good (but not outstanding) composition, high resolution but unfortunate light.

Was ISO 400 1/60s 50mm hand-held evening light, so this is as much detail as I can get from the source frames. I think it is much better now. Colin (talk) 22:12, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

If you take a look on Suncalc there are two possible recording times for the photo - VERY early in the morning, shortly after sunrise at 3.30 am [3] or shortly before sunset at 8.30pm (as you've choosen). The problem with the recording time in the evening is that most parts of your main motive are in shadow. Have you ever seen the lighting situation early in the morning and can you judge if it is better? Or are there other shortcomings in the morning? --Tuxyso (talk) 20:52, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Nice to see, that I'm not the only one, who calculates sun's position. Town Hall has this kind of evening light only some three weeks during whole year. Early morning light was my second choice, because if the sun shines from that side, the neighbor buildings and some of the Town Hall itself would have been in the shadow, whilst foreground would have more light. --Ivar (talk) 07:49, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

    • Just explaining why I nominated this and why I think it's so special: this is a photo taken just after the signing on a peace treaty between two enemy countries, Israel and Jordan, and it depicts a special personal moment between the leaders of both countries: Rabin and Hussein. It reflects something unique about the relationship between the two great leaders. Tomer T (talk) 07:15, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
      • The moment captured is quite historic and interesting, too. I like the lighting of the cigarette as symbolic of relaxation between the two. The actual quality of the photograph leaves something to be desired, though, especially in the "sharpness"-department. Kleuske (talk) 11:19, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

HK and mainland China have different FoP provisions, with attribution not required in the former. I don't know if Macau is different (they may have retained Portugal's), but they do not use Chinese copyright law yet. Daniel Case (talk) 15:07, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It's an eye-catching picture. But the contrast has been boosted too far resulting in clipped highlights (loss of detail on the building) and blocked shadows. The JPG has no defined/embedded colour-space either. Colin (talk) 22:04, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Weak Symbol support vote.svg Support. Agree with Colin that there is some clipping, but mostly it's just specular highlights and patches of red-channel clipping, so good enough for me to support. --King of ♠ 22:19, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
I agree that fussing about blown specular highlights is often mistaken, but brick/stone/concrete doesn't produce specular highlights -- you need something mirror smooth like metal or water to get specular highlights. I think more subtle processing could save the detail while still producing a bold image. It is clearly not straight-from-camera (there's very little EXIF data, so some program has removed it) so I hope the creator can rework it. Colin (talk) 22:42, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

    • Sorry, the previous version was imho much better. I've changed my vote to neutral. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:11, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
    • I like both versions. Previous has strong contrast and is darker. Actual is more soft and lighter. But if we discuss the "previous" image, so I've decided to restore previous version. I shoot photos in RAW, so I can develop RAW images in many ways. --Jar.ciurus 08:45, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
      • In such a case it is better to make an alternative nomination because the previous pro votes are for the original version. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:52, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
      • Agree with Tuxyso that using a different filename & alt-nomination helps. I think your intermediate version is over-exposed, but at least it shows all the detail was captured. So I'd prefer something a little darker overall, showing texture on the building, but perhaps with shadows lifted a bit to retain detail in the trees. Also, what raw converter and/or editor are you using? Please make sure you pick a colourspace (sRGB is best for the web) and make sure it saves this detail in the JPG. Colin (talk) 09:01, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Colin gave quite good solution. ;) - I've uploaded new wersion. :) Shadows have been lifted and highlights corrected. There are details both in lights and shadows. What do you think now? (Next time I'll just upload a new file, but this time let it be) I use LR 4.4 and PS. I export images in "to the web" mode, every image has added sRGB profile. --Jar.ciurus User talk:Jar.ciurus 16:30, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support version 16:17, 29 October 2013. However, you're still not saving the colour profile and I would appreciate if you could fix this so it displays the right colours for everyone. Have you got the "Metadata" section of the export dialog set to strip everything but copyright? Perhaps that's removing this vital info? Test it with this tool. I would strongly recommend you post your latest as another file with alternative nomination, though, as I don't consider any of your previous votes as valid for this one, and some may still not like this one.

    • IMHO there is nothing wrong with the color balance. At the time I've visited the Grand Canyon National Park there had been massive rain falls the days and weeks before. Opposing because the photo shows the Grand Canyon in an unfamiliar way (as pointed out by Jebulon) in not really understandable for me. Look also at the photo on the next day or on this or this one.

An early close such as Michael has proposed would appear to be a way of mollifying the move to suppress this image as NSFW and is the sole current subject case example to support a current RFC about this type of censorship.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I have replaced the image with a link. I have no problem with such works on Commons or being reviewed for FP but a general forum like FPC should remain "safe for work" (or safe for viewing while my in-laws are visiting!). I appreciate the lack of image makes the nomination harder-work but hope you understand. Not everyone here is reviewing images in the privacy of their own study, and could face significant embarrassment or even disciplinary action for viewing this. -- Colin (talk) 17:09, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Wow Colin, what's embarassing on an art nude photo, furthermore on one in a thumbnail view? Imo, you're exaggerating. --A.Savin 19:38, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I would appreciate a bit of feedback on what images are to be censored in FPC candidate discussion as there ought to be an unambiguous definition that I can comply with. Nudity itself is not really "NSFW" in my view, this was a life study image, and an obviously gay one, but not a sexually explicit image or even an erotic one in my view. Thanks -- (talk) 19:51, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Please avoid the C-word; this is not an issue of censorship and that word leads to a polarised mentality in discussions. Flickr offer some advice: "If you would hesitate to show your photos or videos to a child, your mum, or Uncle Bob" and "A good rule of thumb is, bare breasts and bottoms are "moderate." Full frontal nudity is "restricted."". I'd rate both the "moderate" and "restricted" Flickr categories as needing a link rather than preview image. This image is full-frontal nudity even if the intention is not in your opinion sexual or erotic. It is hard to give an "unambiguous definition" but if there is doubt, I think a link should be used instead. In the UK, imo, viewing such images in a professional open-plan office can lead to disciplinary actions (misuse of company facilities, sexual harassment in the workplace), as well as considerable embarrassment. A.Savin, if you think I am exaggerating then you need to read a UK employee handbook (the scope of "misuse of company facilities" is often worded extremely widely and the sentence for this "crime" can be as severe as instant dismissal). Perhaps you don't work in a mixed-sex open-plan professional office environment in a country like the UK? This isn't a "thumbnail" like on QI, but about 5x5 inches. One can get away with more nudity in a historical fine-art painting than in a photograph -- there's a considerable a social-attitude difference even if you believe there isn't a rational one. -- Colin (talk) 22:27, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
A few simple points, from someone who happens to be the most active contributor to Wikimedia Commons this month:
  1. "Censorship" is not the C-word, you appear to be trying to create a parody here where even the concept of what might be censorship is as offensive to discuss as the word "cunt". We have an extremely clear section in one of our most important policies on this project, Commons:Project scope#Censorship. This photograph is not offensive sexual material in anyone's book. Thank you for your concern for my family, but my mother would not be in the least bit offended by this life study shot of a gay couple that is more romantic than erotic. If you are offended by it, I'm afraid that is your problem, not Wikimedia Commons' problem to hide it from you or your mum.
  2. It is not your job to hide content on Commons on the basis of what you personally think might be NSFW or not, based on rules that you are making up as you go along. If you think Commons should have a policy of hiding explicitly homosexual content or nude content then I suggest you run an RFC so that the Community can decide whether your ideas about censorship represent everyone else. Until you do manage to establish a community consensus for this type of censorship, I am restoring this photo to this discussion rather than allowing special rules on this discussion that exist nowhere else on Commons. Your personal opinions may be interesting, but do not have the power to overturn guidelines established by the community.
  3. Commons is not Flickr, quoting their policies here to justify your action in censoring this image is no justification.
  4. Commons has images of dead people, sex education content, nude women and images of highly offensive political and defamatory propaganda. If you work in an office environment where policies for internet access are so restrictive that you might get dismissed, then you probably should not randomly surf the internet at all. It is not within Commons' scope or any guidelines to comply with arbitrary policies that companies may have made up or may vary on a day to day basis, but are neither a national law, nor practical for this project.
Thanks -- (talk) 22:45, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
You seem to have confused Commons hosting guidelines with the wishes of those participating at FPC -- the community at FPC can set their own guidelines wrt what material should be hidden from immediate display in that forum. I'm disappointed you are edit-warring over this without establishing consensus for change. You also seem to be confusing my personal opinions with those of my personnel department at work, views I have no control over and who do not have to conform to the kind of morality views at Commons yet have a rather large influence on my pay packet each month. If FPC is NSFW then I cannot and shall not participate. Goodbye. Colin (talk) 23:08, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Rubbish, boldly making a single edit to restore the discussion to comply with the norms of this project is not edit-warring. Neither have I "confused" the guidelines. If there are to be special rules for FPC that do not apply anywhere else on Commons, then you need to establish them as agreed with the community rather than dictating them on the community. As for your morality, you are most welcome to hold your views and discuss them here, but please do not assume that your morals are superior. Thanks -- (talk) 23:14, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
If you are a UK office employee and you believe to endanger your job by watching FPC page as well as any other Wikimedia page on a computer in your office, you probably should avoid Wikimedia projects entirely while surfing on Internet at work. Wikimedia projects have for a good reason a purely educational purpose, there were already "worse" things (remember Vulva on WP Main Page?), we on Commons have also explicit pornographic images, so there were plenty of discusions on child protection, image filter etc., but fortunately none of them have been succesfull so far. Yes, in some countries you might lose your job, in some other countries maybe also your freedom or even your life (because there are still lots of backward barbaric countries in the world, even nor, in 2013); maybe also because of much more harmless pictures; but still, it is not Commons' job to safe you from such risks. Its only job is: hosting freely licensed educational content. --A.Savin 23:58, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Colin, seriously, get back to work, I am sure that your employer isn't paying you to be surfing the net, and even more sure that they are not paying you to argue on the internet. Also, I think you are coming across as a little high and mighty when you talk of the "FPC community", or is it that FPC in your mind is the feifdom of a few closed off entirely to the evil outsiders? Sorry, but we are all members of the same community, so Fae's suggestion of an RFC on the issue is a sound one. russavia (talk) 23:59, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
So we leave a crap image on display, that is obviously not going to succeed as FP given the community's standards, just to spite people that have concerns as to when and where it gets displayed? Brilliant. Saffron Blaze (talk) 01:46, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
Most of the body of Kargaltsev's works are related to his gay life, however he has made some studies of non-gay subjects such as this nude portrait of a heterosexual couple which I doubt would be suppressed due to arbitrary claims of being NSFW. I would be surprised if all of his artwork was considered "crap" by the community and I would be interested to know if alternative gay related photographs published on Commons under Category:Files from Sasha Kargaltsev Flickr stream that feature nude or semi-nude gay men would also be subject to censorship if I nominate them here. -- (talk) 08:12, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
  • How do we know this heterosexual couple is heterosexual? Are they a couple at all? Nothing on the flickr site would allude to these assertions as being fact. Actually the commentary in the description would lead me to think otherwise, albeit in a rather humorous way. Regardless, it is all irrelevant. The nominated image is of an exceedingly poor technical quality that it is appalling you nominated it. Moreover, your desire to make it a test case should not trump accepted FPC practices. The fact that you persist in throwing around the censorship card speaks clearly to your motives not Colin's. However, let me assure you I would have objected to any image on FPC that displayed full frontal human nudity. Not because I am prude, but rather because I would like to exercise control of what gets displayed on my screen beyond a certain limit as a courtesy to those around me and out of respect for the terms of acceptable use I often commit to, to use various venues of Internet access. Saffron Blaze (talk) 03:56, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

      • Fae, I've reverted your edit as the image is indeed not FP quality, with little chance of passing. I understand and share your concerns, especially as it relates to people who should be working trying to censor the project, but seriously this is not the image to use to have such a discussion that you wish to have. russavia (talk) 18:37, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

IMHO the photo is very good, the composition is harmonic, light is nice, framing is also good. I would suggest to work a bit on the dark bushes at the left - they are quite noisy and noise + sharpening leads to unfortunate sharpening artefacts. Give the new radial filters in LR 5 a try and apply strong noise reduction in that edge and reduce clarity. Probably it will help.

      I use darktable, which has a CA correction tool that sometimes appears to detect CAs where there are none, then tries to correct them and adds new ones due to that. :/ However, now at second glance I'm seeing that the version with the correction turned on was actually quite good - at first glance I thought I saw some CAs that weren't in the other version, but now I can't see them anymore. I'm going to upload a new version, I hope it is better. Thank you for the feedback. darkweasel94 21:22, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

The color of the (rock?) matches the color of the bird's coat -OK- but it somehow cuts the birds and distracts from the main motive. The missing separation of the bird from the background is most notably in thumbnail view. --Tuxyso (talk) 20:14, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

  • I had not denied that it is the natural habitat. But from a photographic viewpoint the background is unfortunate. If the brown area had filled the complete background or if the whole body of the bird had been over the rock it had been much better. The way it is now the rocks (or whatever it is) cut the wings of the bird. It is the same as you cut a (human) head by a horizon line - a no-go for portayal shots. --Tuxyso (talk) 13:01, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

    • Julian, I've worked on the sky (selective NR) and applied some masked sharpening. Do you think it is better now? For sure it is a backlit situation but I do not see real clipping. Backlit is the only way to bring out the nice sun rays inside the Canyon. Just to avoid confusion: The other noms of the Grand Canyon show a very different motive thus they are not really comparable to the one here.

    • I have contacted the photographer to see if they have a looser crop of the photo available and will revert back here if they do. Either way, whilst such crops are sometimes frowned upon in the event a looser crop isn't available, I hope those considering the photo will recognise how rare it is to get a photo of aircraft/helicopters with propeller aerodynamic condensation. russavia (talk) 13:51, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
    • I have heard back from the photographer and this is the only crop available of the photo/scene. russavia (talk) 03:20, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
