Pictogram voting question.svg Question - are the nomination guidelines available in Arabic? I guess that Ghabara may not have understood them fully - MPF (talk) 15:28, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

No, there isn't an Arabic version of this FPC's rules yet (apparently the Arabic FPC is pretty different), but Ghabara can communicate in English. We just have a case n00b-itis here. --IdLoveOne (talk) 22:06, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Due to the composition: it appears cluttered, with no focal point, no breathing space for anything. The only leading compositional element is the backlit translucent glass enclosure at the bottom, but we lose it halfway in, since the overpass cuts the picture exactly in half. The trusses and structural elements of the ceiling are stacked together and thus not really legible, part of a mechanical stair protrude in the lower left corner... --MAURILBERT (discuter) 17:10, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
Noted: a ladder for another meter or so of height would have helped push the bridge down in the image and focus better on the vanishing point, but security doesn't look favorably on ladders at the checkpoints. Acroterion (talk) 17:57, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I was, but it was really hard for me to look at that poor bear (I saw dozens of them in a wild), at his yellow fur, and a sick look.

Nothing to be sorry about! I agree that ethics is a factor to [polar!] bear in mind when considering FPC - MPF (talk) 09:49, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, nothing wrong with having ethics, and it could be argued anyway that if someone was going to take a zoo photo it could show the animal more interesting than just sitting there. This one looks more lazy than like he's suffering to me, though. --IdLoveOne (talk) 14:38, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Llez - uploaded by Llez - nominated by Llez -- Llez (talk) 17:05, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Equine evolution. Composed from Skeletons of Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde Karlsruhe, Germany.
From left to right: Size development, biometrical changes in the skull, reduction of fingers (left forefoot)

      • ✓ Done No problem --Llez (talk) 17:51, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Another small comment ;-) the yellow note boxes aren't all congruent, it would look tidier if they were. Oh, and 'toes' not 'fingers'. - MPF (talk) 18:16, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - MPF (talk) 18:16, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As it is the forefoot (the hand) which is depicted, I chose "finger" (but everyone can change it, if he wants to). The boxes are arranged horizontally (with explanation) and vertically (with other explanations). If you go to the overlaying parts, you can see the comments for the horizontal and the vertical boxes respectively. That's the reason for this arrangement. --Llez (talk) 18:49, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment "Finger" is normally only used for arms, not for forelegs, in English. But I'll wait to see what others think. What I meant with the boxes, was that they were not fully aligned (e.g. column 1 started 343 px from the top and was 7620 px high, column 2 started 329 px from the top and was 7634 px high), I have aligned them all now. - MPF (talk) 19:30, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for aligning. Finger /toes: I'm not so familiar with English to know this difference. I accept your argument, I change to "toes". --Llez (talk) 20:41, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Why the most recent above, and the most ancient below ? Looks unlogical to me and seems a contrary of an evolution... It is not "evolutive", is it ? (and sorry for my poor english too, but I'm sure you understand what I mean) --Jebulon (talk) 00:38, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment All genealogical trees (human or in palaeontology) are arranged in this way (the oldest at bottom, the youngest on top). This corresponds also to the stratigraphical layers in geology (the youngest layers - and fossils - at the top). --Llez (talk) 05:42, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info All photos are taken by me in the "Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde Karlsruhe" (SNMK).

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question of a Beotian : why choosing a zebra, and not a horse, even both are members of "Equus", and both at the top of evolution ?
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info You can choose any modern Equus as example. But the reason is simple: At the Museum (SMNK, see above) these four skeletons are mounted to demonstrate horse-evolution. No other modern Equus-species is shown as skeleton. To photograph other species, you must have skeletons arranged in the same way. But I hadn't. In addition, I dont think that the skeletons would show serious differences. --Llez (talk) 17:41, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
      • Thanks for interesting answering.--Jebulon (talk) 22:48, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think that the annotation must be corrected, if I'm not wrong (Equus grevyi looks better than Equus greyvi ) Sorry if I mistake.--Jebulon (talk) 16:09, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

    • That sounds like a discrepancy to me: If I'd had made it wider you would see even more sky and on the ground projection distortions would become obvious. Please consider the image resolution of 56 Megapixel when judging image quality. I have a 2m wide printout at home which looks absolutely perfect. If you can't read the labels you can scale the graphic-that's the advantage of a vector format. --Ikiwaner (talk) 17:42, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
      • Yes, I understand the difficulties, which may not have an adequate solution. I'm also aware of the lighting problems with this kind of image. Maybe this was not the best spot to take the 360º panorama; a higher place would have been much better, of course but is there such place? The truth is I don't sympatize with 360º panoramas, not only due to the technical problems involved but also because they don't offer a realistic view of the subject. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:04, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Might be better to switch the names with numbers for non-English speakers, that way the mountains could be labelled on the image page description. --IdLoveOne (talk) 15:48, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

The most important thing, the subject of the image is a whale, or rather the mark of the bites of great white sharks. The whale was not retouched. The ocean was. There were a big waves that day, and it is all, but impossible to stitch the waves automatically. I did my best in stitching those waves, and I believe I have done a good job, but once again, the subject of the image is the whale, and the marks of shark bites.--Mbz1 (talk) 22:07, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

I'd honestly rather see a decaying whale, which is a very interesting subject matter that isn't something you see everyday (a big factor, I would think, in whether or not something is worth featuring). As for the stitching, I understand why manipulations on the ocean had to be done, and I fail to see why that's a deterrent; the subject in intact and looks good (not that type of good...), while the ocean is an ocean, and isn't a big factor in the image. ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 03:05, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

  • I'll note the imperfect source for the id, quoting a marine biologist, says Sei (B. borealis) or Bryde's (B. brydei) [doh! Fin (B. physalus)] or Blue hybrid. I imagine the boffin blathering on about uncertain taxonomy of the genus, and the reporter seizing on rare and hybrid to fill the column, but noting it as a species of w:Balaenoptera is probably reasonable. Beached whales are not rare, neither is being chewed round the edges before they land. Questions: This was taken with the same camera that produced the image at the Great White article? Is it possible to see the source without retouching? Where is the citation that states it was that shark species, or is that assumed? cygnis insignis 18:11, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
Well, beached whales are more or less rare, and appear only in some regions, even at ocean shores. I live 10 minutes walk from the ocean. I see a beach wale about 1 time in 2-3 years in 40 miles radius from my home. It was only second time I saw a whale with the bites by a great white shark, or any shark for that matter at all. I saw elephant seals with the bites of sharks. All the images were taken with the same camera. Also amazing were the huge bites taken out of the whale that experts said were from great white sharks. I am not sure why do you need to see the source files.--Mbz1 (talk) 18:26, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
I wouldn't cite that source, good copy is the priority. I can't cite you until you are published and reviewed, but dead and dying whales turn up on beaches more often than other regions, if not always. I see and hear of them in my immediate vicinity many times a year, I've never thought to photograph them, is there an audience for deserted and dying humpback calves. This used to drive the locals nuts, keeping them awake all night with their wailing until somebody went out and shot it. Stinking up our favourite beach isn't much fun either. I had the idea that making the original data available was sop, at least for restoration, and I fancied having a look after I zoomed up on the retouched file. Is it impolite to ask, ignore me if it is. cygnis insignis 19:49, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
I count four in the last three months, on beaches I can see from my window. One was 'resting' in the harbour for a fortnight, then was blown up; again, I didn't think to get a snap of that. BTW, you should add a warning about touching dead mammals, not a good idea. Rarity is not a consideration here. cygnis insignis 20:09, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose the image of the Frecce Tricolori that you intend to get featured does not show the formation with their traditional colours. displaying the national colours of italy is what makes them so remarkable. the blurry bush seems rather distracting here and does not improve the composition. i would be glad if you could provide another picture showing the colours at this size. using digital image editing - removing the fauna will be the least problem. regards, --Peter Weis (talk) 19:48, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
    • What do you mean by their traditional colours? This? As far as I know, the F.C. had never had this kind of livery on the MB-339. And if you want to remove the tree - sorry, no deal. Wolf (talk) 19:56, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
    • their traditional colours / national colours of italy refers to the green-white-red smoke trails as seen on other pictures. my point is not about the planes' colours - i opposed because i think showing the Frecce Tricolori without those smoke trails does not cope with what they are renowned for. if reviewed at 100% sharpness and detail could be better as well. for this is not an image showing a historical singularity an image featuring all the aspects mentioned here could still be created. think of someone who is not into aviation and does know about the Frecce Tricolori - which composition would be better to explain what is seen on the picture? --Peter Weis (talk) 08:05, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
      • Oh, the smoke, now I understand. Honestly, no, they are not renowned for the colour of the smoke. They're simply not. You could say that Patrulla Águila is, in a sense, because they're the only team to use yellow smoke. And mind you, this is not Wikipedia the Commons FPs do not need to be educational in the strict sense. And there is never an indication of what a particular image is supposed to illustrate. The argument would, however, be perfectly valid for valued images, that is where we pay attention to how the image illustrates a given topic. There due to the reasons you mentioned, I'd oppose the picture myself. Wolf (talk) 08:12, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
      • i think there is always an indication of what a particular image is supposed to illustrate. it first of all is image itself: the level of detail you can perceive, the movement within the image, the way the image was shot concerning technical aspects. the question one needs to ask oneself is: what does this picture tell me? does it tell about the aircraft type? not really, shape is visible, but technical details are not. does it tell about the formation they fly? yes it does - to a certain degree, film could do better to give a illustration of what they are able of. speaking of the connection of colour and Frecce Tricolori - i think it is the same with Patrulla Águila. they do formations including their national colours as well. that was my point. after having seen several picture of the Frecce Tricolori, visiting their website and browsing through the article i got the impression that this what they are renowned for. but alright, you are the guy who's into aviation. i would be very glad if you could get me the part of the guideline where it says, the Commons FPs do not need to be educational in the strict sense, i did not find it so far.--Peter Weis (talk) 14:17, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
        • And where does it say that an image has to be educational? That's exactly the point that EV is absent from the guidelines altogether. Commons FP (as opposed to Wikipedia FP) deals with the image itself, not the image in the context of a particular article. And as for colours, the truth is that most stunts are done with white smoke, the colours are mostly reserved for fly-bys and some formation manoeuvres. Wolf (talk) 15:22, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
        • after digging deeper and deeper in the mine of understanding, i unearth your idea here. besides colours or not, besides educational value or not - what is the aspect of this image that makes you think it deserves featured picture status, what makes it convincing?--Peter Weis (talk) 16:07, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
          • I like the diagonal composition and - as mentioned below - the idea of the planes popping out from behind the cover as if in a low level air raid. By the way, I've just nominated a picture with high (I think) educational value. You can consider it to have a dedication just for you Smile Really, no hard feelings.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm sorry, I think such a tilt is not that "obvious". I see other little issues, as always when I watch very carefully my pictures (I'm never fully happy with them), but I really don't find any tilt.--Jebulon (talk) 16:43, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

    • I saw that previously. It seems more to be a perspective distortion IMO, because there is no other way where a tilt could be possible (and the right wall of the castle is not straight in real). Not sure it needs to be corrected. Thoughts about ?--Jebulon (talk) 20:28, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
      • I agree, it could be the effect of barrel distortion since a small focal distance was used -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:18, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I reckon it's a fine photo, composition-wise. Sticking a grey point on the shadow of the foreground sail shows that there's a slight magenta tinge, there's also a touch of colour noise in the shadows, and it could be a little brighter and more saturated to emphasise the strength of the Spanish sun. I've uploaded a version incorporating these changes (aside): I'd be interested to hear what people think. Smalljim (talk) 22:46, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thank you for comments and very nice and interesting work. No need to emphasize the strength of the spanish sun : I was under, and it was enough, for sure !!
