  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Animated GIFs are so last century. We've now got proper digital video formats with enormously richer image quality than a GIF's 256 colour pallete and HD resolution is absolutely the norm (this isn't even SD resolution). Each frame is dreadful to look at, with heavy posterisation. There's generally no way to stop the animation in one's browser, which is extremely annoying when trying to read the web page. There's no way for this image to be reused other than on the web. There's a reason why no professional web page published in the last 10 years contain animated GIFs.

You know, I never understand the Commons FP style of nominating an unusual picture and not explaining it. What you, as a photographer, were trying to achieve.

Disturbing building in the bottom right corner, not the best lighting (shady on the left, bright areas on the castle) and the image is sky-heavy (himmellastig, too much sky IMHO).

The whole church is lined with such frescoes. At the time this church had also the function of a newspaper such as the German newspaper today "Bildzeitung". Who stood in church and looked up into the vault realized there people of high society. As a result, came into being for persons of high society the German name "die da oben". Later, the frescoes were painted over with white paint. In 1924, the frescoes were discovered and exposed. Today the frescoes for scientists, film directors, actors and costume designers have a great importance because it is the fashion of 1400 original show. --Michael Gäbler (talk) 16:54, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I am sure that the perspective is realistic considering the photograph is taken from quite near to the ground. However, for me, the perspective distorts the shape of the car and makes it look huge. Also, the top of the bonnet is not visible and normally this would be seen by an observer standing near to the car. I think that a encyclopaedic photograph of a car should have normal perspective, so that it does not tend look like and advert. Snowmanradio (talk) 09:20, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Very good shot of the bird and insects. Suggest you try an almost square crop where the top edge of the branch runs from top-left to bottom-right (1795x1697 when I tried it). That crop eliminates the bottom of the branch, simplifying the scene, and provides a strong geometric form IMO. It would also produce a little more room to the left of the bird than to the right, which I think is helpful given the direction the bird is facing.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment What does "composition looks a bit messy" mean? I really hate to lecture, but... Composition wise, it is a very simple composition, two elements, the table and the carrots. The rule of thirds is followed, one third table, two thirds carrots. So messy composition in my opinion is a wrong term. If anything, it is a very measured, clean composition. On the graphic side, we also have simplicity: color and repetition. That the carrots are in a haphazard pile, well, it is carrots in a market... Now, there is one element that to the observant is relevant... But after all, it is a simple picture of carrots in a market. Can you see the market? --Tomascastelazo (talk) 16:32, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There's more to "composition" than lining two major elements up on the rule of thirds line. An attractive basket would be better than that migraine-inducing-green box. The random arrangement of carrots has no depth and little to interest the viewer. A basic Google Image search for "carrots" turns up countless examples of more inviting images. Sorry, but this is a long way from feature-worthy IMO. Colin (talk) 17:45, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Of course there is more to composition, the link you provide above should be a must read for anyone evaluating photographs here... Have you? And yes, there are millions of better photos not only in the internet, but stashed away someplace. But this one is here, and it is free. But I do not think I am ready to produce a picture of something in an attractive basket to please the particular taste of anyone. I photograph reality as it presents itself to the world, extracting what I consider relevant. And that migrane-inducing green box is an expression of a particular culture, a particular place, that has much to say to the educated mind. It is like music... to some it is noise, to some it is the metrics of sounds, to others, pleasure... --Tomascastelazo (talk) 18:11, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Why not these ([1], [2], [3]) ways? -- Jkadavoor (Jee) (talk) 06:12, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
    • Agree. There's a far better "carrots in market" image that could have been made than this uninteresting still-life. The "this one is free" argument is irrelevant. Colin (talk) 08:59, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Of course there can be, and there are better pictures, better photographers, but this has to be one of the silliest arguments to oppose. If we were to apply that criteria to oppose, not one single image in Commons would be featured, for there is always room for improvement. The reality is that this picture is the one up for voting, not some Platonic ideal concocted up in someone´s mind, who has no idea what photography is all about, nor how to judge on photographic and documentary merits. If the lack of quality really bothers someone, they should set the example of quality, and show the world how things are done. Evaluators should at least use universally agreed terminology in photo evaluation, if they know what that is. Also the responsibility for the quality in FPC resides not only on the photograph, good or bad, for I´ve seen extraordinary photography shot down by inadequate, ignorant judging. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 16:59, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Is this nomination just a piss-take, Tomascastelazo? Are you just trolling us? The photo is deeply boring and has unpleasant colours. It completely fails to capture the interest of the viewer, who can't wait to get this luminous arrangement of pixels off their screen. There, that's my reason for opposing. All the rest is just an aside. Colin (talk) 17:08, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I take my photography and my nominations very seriously, and if you read the thread you are the one who started using inadequate terms in the evaluation, pointing out reasons to oppose that are not within the evaluation criteria and based on your personal taste (which is fine), implying bad quality, bad technique or what have you. To say that the picture is deeply boring for example, is a personal value judgement outside of the criteria. And since you take the effort to evaluate from the wrong parameters in detriment of the spirit of Commons, so I take the effort to point out your lack of objectivity and question your authority to speak on behalf of the viewers. If it is boring for you, so be it, you have a right to your opinion, but I do not recall you being appointed the spokesperson of the community. I speak from my experience, from deeds done, from contributions, whereas I cannot really see where your assumed authoritative knowledge comes from. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 18:58, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The black bag is sanitary control! The picture depicts the products as well as their merchandising... On a street! So the picture has more information than just the representation of products... As C. Wright Mills suggested in his classic "The Sociological Imagination," so here we could use a little of "photographical imagination." This is, after all, an encyclopaedic endeavor, not a beauty contest. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 18:19, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Ich vermute jetzt einfach mal, dass du JPEGs machst und deine Kamera die Bilder schärft. Schau mal die Fahrleitung auf den Bildern ab Kamera an. Evtl. fällt das erst nach dem Stitchen richtig stark auf, weil dann gewisse Bildbereiche vergrössert werden. --Kabelleger (talk) 22:12, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Unfortunately I can't see better examples (showing 10 stories above the water) although found some more resolution ones. This may be reason why this file is used in so many wikis whereas no one else is ever used. :( -- Jkadavoor (Jee) (talk) 14:03, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
The recently uploaded (for WLM 2012) images File:Chand Baori (step-well).JPG and File:Chand Baori (Step-well) at Abhaneri.JPG show 12 levels above the water and are taken from two opposite sides. The latter is a better picture and higher EV than this IMO. That it was only uploaded two weeks ago is probably the main reason it isn't widely used yet. The above nomination appears to be a scan of a photograph and the left-hand-side has serious light-bleed issues, as well as the picture having low overall sharpness/detail for its (barely) 2MP.

Isn't Commons just the worst UI for browsing pictures? Tiny thumbnails and very hard to sort or judge without opening them all. Colin (talk) 15:44, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes; I started to rearrange pictures in gallery like this so that people can easily find the best files. Is it good? -- Jkadavoor (Jee) (talk) 15:54, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
That sort of thing helps. A gallery still doesn't list image dimensions and on the category list all you have to go on is the file size. Different users will have different needs. For web use, the tiny images might be fine. For others, they are just noise. Colin (talk) 17:10, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Hey Jkadavoor, thanks a lot for your feedback. How if we looked at this less as an "issue" than as a disagreement about how to do things. I took about 70 exposures, from different angles and with all kinds of different depths of field. After looking at the different shots, I decided that I wanted to go with the f/7.1 than with f/4.0 (as e.g. in this picture) because I wanted the nice bokeh and I also wanted the main parts of the bird to be pin sharp (as in the picture above). So, just to clarify: I'm not challenging your vote. I'm totally fine if you don't like the photo or if you just don't think it should be featured. What I would like to point out is that I would feel much more comfortable if you said: "I see your approach and I don't like it" instead of "there's an issue". Let's just assume that most of the people here know what they're doing and might just have chosen to do it in a specific way – instead of thinking that someone was lacking the technical skills "to get it right" ;-) Best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 18:28, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks Frank for the detailed reply. Yes, DOF and "fine details" are not friends; they always walk in opposite directions. So the only thing we can do is to find the best point in between. I appreciate your selection here (F7.1 at 145mm) but the subject is not well aligned to your camera sensor.; the bill is close and the tail is far. So the bottom of the head is also out of focus. The camera should be well aligned vertically and horizontally to get best results in such works. The “problem” of Tomas’ previous FP seems lack of vertical alignment than horizontal.
The position of the head in the other picture you referred (F4 at 165 mm) is better ; here it turns at you . Please note that DOF changes with change in focal lengh or subject distance. You will get more advice (which are free) if posted at Wikipedia where DOF is more considered than here. BTW, I like your plenty of works including this. :) -- Jkadavoor (Jee) (talk) 06:49, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Karl Briullov - uploaded by Dcoetzee - nominated by Dcoetzee. A 632 megapixel high-quality digitization of Karl Briullov's famous painting, The Last Day of Pompeii, from the Google Art Project. Depicts a panicked scene as a volcano erupts. Includes links to a set of 12 tiles for the full 9.3 gigapixel version of the image, providing an extremely high level of detail suitable for creating high-resolution detail images and large wall-sized prints. This version was scaled down to 30,000 pixels wide because that's the largest size Photoshop can handle (and it requires only a reasonable 2.5 GB of RAM to load). -- Dcoetzee (talk) 05:27, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Superior to existing versions (File:Karl Briullov, The Last Day of Pompeii (1827–1833).jpg is overbrightened). Could use more info in its artwork template. Dcoetzee (talk) 05:27, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very nice, but really hard to load! Indeed Photoshop will load it, but for those without it, I would recommend Irfanview. It automatically resizes it to 15000px, which is still really detailed. Programs I've tried that do not work on my computer with 6 GB RAM: Firefox, Toolserver, Windows Photo Viewer, GIMP (on Linux), EOG (on Linux). -- King of ♠ 06:57, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
    • FYI I've managed to load it in both GIMP on Windows and Windows Photo Viewer on my comp with 8 GB RAM, although GIMP took a few minutes - not sure why exactly the Linux version didn't work out. Firefox didn't work for me either, nor did MS Paint or JPEGcrop. Dcoetzee (talk) 07:16, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose IMO, we could feature "in block" all the pictures of the "Google art Project", and I don't see the interest for our project. "Commons" needs theses images, yes, but there is no need to feature a picture (taken by a bot) that at least half of us cannot upload on a "normal" browser... This version was scaled down is in contradiction with the guidelines, and it is an interesting paradox... Important for "Commons", agree. Featured Picture, disagree.--Jebulon (talk) 14:51, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
    • I'm confused - you're objecting that you can't load it but also objecting that it was scaled down? Also it couldn't possibly have not been scaled down, as JPEGs have a maximum resolution of 65536x65536, and in addition the full resolution version was uploaded separately as a tile set. Also very high-resolution bot uploads have been featured before, such as File:The Immaculate Conception, by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, from Prado in Google Earth.jpg (12,988 × 23,867). Would it be perhaps helpful to upload a (further) scaled down version separately for people who are unable to open this one? Dcoetzee (talk) 17:40, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
      • Can you upload maximum resolution version in TIFF or XCF ? --Sasha Krotov (talk) 13:14, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
        • The maximum resolution TIFF would be about 18 gigabytes in size, and is far too large to upload or to manipulate using any existing software (the image would require about 37 GB of RAM to decode with 32 bpp, which most home PCs don't have). (Moreover the original TIFF is not lossless, but rather is assembled from Google's JPEG tiles, so JPEG artifacts are already present in it.) Right now I think Category:Tile set of The Last Day of Pompeii provides the best way to access the full resolution version. Dcoetzee (talk) 20:14, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

I've also used the gigapixel tiles to create a new 10,466 × 20,584 version of the detail image File:Karl Briullov, The Last Day of Pompeii (1827–1833, detail of Yuliya Samoylova).jpg.
