  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not bad for a first try on fpc, but you took it at the wrong time of the day. You should try either daytime or after nightfall. At the time your photo was taken at, both the sky is too bright, the area outside the sky is in the shadow and the streetlights are too bright in comparison with the rest of the shot, leading to overexposure in that area. Try it at a different time of the day, and it might just about become an FP. Freedom to share (talk) 21:41, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

    • No no no no no! What do you mean by enhanced? That makes it sound like you did something good. That's not the case. It is a completely false assumption by people with bad monitors that stretching the histogram of an image automatically produces a better picture. You are ruining the colors of the image for the rest of us with non sucking monitors. --Dschwen (talk) 20:36, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
      • Sorry, I was not aware of that. I have tried to fix the tilt and replaced the edit with an image with the original contrast. Muhammad 21:37, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support IMO it now solves all the above mentioned problems. Muhammad 20:24, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

    • There are other issues : all your source pictures weren't focused consistently, resulting on soft parts and sharp ones being mixed. This will be more difficult to fix. The tilt is very obvious on this version. Also, I wouldn't try to change things when they can only be judged subjectively (such as contrast and colors... you were there, you remember the colours better than we do, so if you were satisfied with the first version's colours, I'd suggest you keep them !).

    • OK, let's close the nomination, but I want to ask e few questions - how it is tilted, if all walls of buildings are vertical, and roofs at the center - horizontal? This image was taken at this place: [1]. So, in the left a river is moru curved, than in right, so it only looks like curved. I don't really understand, where you see tilting :( Andrius Vanagas (talk) 04:40, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
      • But, uhm, the buildings are not 100% vertical - I measured a 1.64 degree counter-clockwise tilt on the highest building (in the middle) with Photoshop's Measure Tool. --Aqwis (talk) 09:46, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
The tilt is clockwise, not counter-clockwise. You can see that when you connect any object with its mirror in the river. The connecting line should be vertical. --Romwriter (talk) 14:35, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Hm... Is it difficult to solve this problem? Photoshop free transform tools? or is there other way? - Andrius Vanagas (talk) 16:14, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - No, there aren't many but the one I know has an amazing quality. One comment and one question: I don't like the way the dial of that metering device, at the LR side, is distorted; where were the child and the newspaper? I'll save my vote for later. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:31, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
  • I can't do much about distorsion, please keep in mind this is a 10mm shot (FOV ~ 90°) and that I couldn't step behind. Lucag's FP is a great one, and a tough comparison :-). It was taken using the same hardware (400D + Canon 10-22) and with similar settings (I used f/8 and 10mm, against f/5.6 and 10mm) so quality should be on par. My picture isn't downsampled and this is a little bit more unforgiving. Lighting is more challenging here as well. Notice you see the details on the upper floor quite well, which isn't possible without exposure blending (which I used by the way, sorry for not telling, I'll update the caption). I didn't want to tell were cloning out was done, not to biase votes, but here where they were : Child (550, 1550) and around ; newspaper (244, 2452) and around. - Benh (talk) 06:04, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

  • I might but I'm not equipped properly (like a Nodal Ninja panoramic head). And there were so many people that my timing was very short. I agree with you that the shot would have been much better uncropped... But I still think it looks aesthetic (nice atmosphere and colours to me), and has value. IMO it depicts well the mecanism of hydraulic motor. Once I'm sure about what composes it, I'll update the caption (but if someones here knows... All I can tell is the left gear has its vertical bar actioned by the turbine in the river underneath). - Benh (talk) 17:15, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Two reasons: crop and to improve sharpness. You may notice that it is cropped slightly tighter than in the previous versions. In those versions, I actually added some "fake" sky in the uppermost part of the picture where there was previously a grey background from rotating the picture. I didn't want to do that in the FPC version so I cropped it instead. I've also downscaled it slightly to improve sharpness. --Aqwis (talk) 11:09, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment No upsize or downsize was done, it would of course look much sharper if I downsized it but our guidelines say that we should not do that. Postprocessing has been spot and noise removal and I slightly reduced three highligts and adjusted the white balace a bit. It was quite difficult to get the light right for this as the shiny metal easily made burned out highligts during the 8 second exposure. I ended up with using three light sources and moved the strongest one in an arc behind the camera during the exposure to create a more even light. I understand your concern about if this should be FP of course there are more beautiful subjects, but all are difficult in their own way. Sharpness was also a challange, I used both mirror lock up and remote shutter. In my oppinion we have many featured macros of nature objects but not that many of "things". /Daniel78 (talk) 22:56, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
I realise it's not upsized, but wanted to point out that the picture as only tiny blotchs, and not pixels (sorry I don't know how to explain better). Strange. As a result, downsampled version wouldn't not lose much information I believe. And if something can be downsampled, we should go ahead I believe. Space drive is not free ;). I'm surprised you had to remove noise from a Nikon D300 picture ; why did you use ISO 200 by the way ? Benh (talk) 17:31, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
Well there was not much noise, and nothing visible on the jackplug (just in the background), perhaps it was the background that caused it as it was a black paper with some texture that was not in focus ? Anyway ISO 200 is actually the lowest on the D300 although there are lower modes called LO, but as I recall it those modes do not follow the standard for ISO ratings (color reproduction and other measurements I guess) and therefore it is not using the ISO numbers just like the reason that above ISO 3200 and up to 6400 it is called HI instead of using the numbers. About downsampling there seem to be different oppinions here, some thinks it's ok and some think you should never do it. But as of now our guidelines do say that the highest possible resoultion should be used, if that is not the case it should be rephrased. And keeping the highest resolution is good in the way that it leaves the option of downsampling to the user of the image, after downsampling you can not get the original back. /Daniel78 (talk) 20:04, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Overall sharpness is quite good, but the edges are not as clear as I would desire. Background is too “warm”, it could be darker and the hue should be complementary to the plug's golden colour. Third, I do not like the lighting, I would prefer more diffuse light sources. --Romwriter (talk) 08:03, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
  • I agree that the background and the plug could be better separated, perhaps I should try to play with that. But to me the jackplug should not be warmer, I have it in front of me and if something this image looks too cold. Not sure why everyone think it's the opposite :) I would also like to try with more diffuse light sources, but I had none available. /Daniel78 (talk) 20:21, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I've never visited the place, but I think this pic is giving me an impression of both the fantastic building - and the dreamlike atmosphere associated to it (read the story - it tells much). So many symmetrical features gives me the need for some dynamic (un-)balance, given here by the skewed position of the camera + that the minarets are leaning inwards. Straight on the middle would simply be too much. The price to pay is the dominant grouping of trees not being kept in perfect balance by a bigger group of people on the left side of the picture. All in all: A very good photo. I wish that I some day can equal it. --Bjørn som tegner (talk) 09:58, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

This is an alternative to the well-known "missing square paradox", popularized by Sam Loyd in the beginning of the 20th century. When the four quadrilaterals rotate about their centres, they fill the space occupied by the small red square. However the total area of the figure remains apparently unchanged during the process. Look better! I made this puzzle more than twenty years ago (in wood) and haven't found yet any written reference to it. However, and because its principle is quite simple, it might be hidden is some old puzzle book. The aim of the animation is to puzzle the reader and defy him to find the explanation, which is quite simple and doesn't call for any special mathematical or geometrical skills.

      • No, a crop will not improve the composition. It's hard to get a featured picture of a flower since we see a lot of good pictures of flowers. A nice close-up of the domes of St. Basils cathedral at night or a panorama of the Kremlin would stand more chance of becoming featured.

    • But we are talking about imagine not about the description. And this imagine doesnt say the strory about what is there, what lanscape is there.--Juan de Vojníkov (talk) 18:58, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
    • I realize that. I was considering to include the location in the title, however it seemed very long and unnecessary since there's a description and geo location. I understand what you mean up to a point, but still what kind of a story do you expect anyway, it's a photo, it worths a thousand words.

    • Pictogram voting question.svg Question To increase sharpening level is quite easy. But to equalize luminance field is more difficult for me : I am not familiar with those technics. Should I apply this method (I tried but did not managed to obtain a satisfying result) ? --Gloumouth1 21:07, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
      • This method is applicable for a few images with no extremely darkened parts (e.a. some weak underexposure removal). I recommend you to equalise luminance field not strongly, using the "Curves" or "Highlights/Shadows" Photoshop instruments. You also can open this image using Camera RAW (in Photoshop CS3 this plugin works with JPEG) and try to improve quality of the image with "Clarity", "Recovery"? "Blacks" and "Fill Light" trackbars. The instruments of Camera RAW have intuitive interface.

Le sens du regard va vers la gauche en direction du bas. Il est pour moi très esthétique et dans les règles de dégager le sens du regard même dans un format carré. De plus le regard a un inclinaison parallèle a la branche ce qui renforce la composition! --Luc Viatour (talk) 14:26, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
"The eye travels towards the left and bottom. It is for me very aesthetic and within the rules to free the eye even within a square format.
