  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Is the haze caused by mist from the falls? The human eye can cut through mist very well and see plenty enough contrast, but a camera will have a much more difficult time at it.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment- I'm kind of wondering how you achieved that motion effect unless you were also in a moving vehicle when you took the shot Madmax32 13:15, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
    • It is a technique called panning. This is sth that i am practicing for some time now. When the car passes you, you have to move the camera in the speed of the car and take the picture. It takes a lot of practise and also luck to get a good shot.--AngMoKio 17:46, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose (weak) I like the motion blur, but the orange "plot" is really annoying, and I'd have prefered more space in front of the car and not behind. Benh 21:28, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose but please try again. The cone is a problem, as is the blur on the back half of the car. I wonder if that is not motion blur, but simply too small a DOF? Regards, Ben Aveling 07:51, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
It is motion blur, it was intended to be like that. I actually think the cone fits where it is. Well try again? Such a picture is not so easy to try again...to see a Formula 1 safety car like this is a rare opportunity. And if you have the opportunity it is not a picture you can make several times until you have a nice one. Anyway thanks for your comment. --AngMoKio 10:52, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
How do you get motion blur on the back of the car but not on the front of the car? What camera settings did you use? And yes, I certainly do know what you mean about not being able to try some photos over again.  :-) Cheers, Ben Aveling 12:02, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
f/8, 1/80s. The fact that the motion blur is only on the front has to do with the fact that you draw a half circle when you move the camera with the car - so the movement of the camera only fits to a certain part of the car. It is a bit difficult to explain. --AngMoKio 14:41, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I see. The amount of rotation required depends on the ratio between the speed of the car, its distance from you, and the exposure time. The speed and exposure time are the same for all the bits of the car but the distance from the camera differs by a significant amount, relative to your distance from the car, so the different parts would require a different rotation not to be blurred. That makes sense. I'd support this picture for QI. Given the circumstances, you probably did as well as could be done. But for reasons as per the above, it still falls short of FP for me. Better luck next time. Ben Aveling 01:52, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Version 2, not featured[edit]

Pictogram voting info.svg Info A edit by User wau--Richard Bartz 23:47, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Nice idea, but for me this new arrangement withdraws the dynamic/tension of the golden section away. It looks slight dull that way. A very nice and artistic thing on the original version is the space, which lets the object breath, plus makes the composition very surrealistic in my eyes --Richard Bartz 23:47, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Now, there is a unfortunate gradient on the left side of the background, could you fix that, please? Regards --Richard Bartz 00:29, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Une règle photographique conseille de ne pas centrer le sujet pour garder une dynamique! Voluntarily not centered to see why here:Rule of Thirds ;) --Luc Viatour 07:54, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I thought about the rule of third before my edit. But the rule does not speak about a plant leaning outwards to the edge of the picture. There is no clear movement or orientation to the right side (the drops at the right side of the plant are not little faces looking to the right, but act as lenses throwing light from behind to your eyes), the plant leans towards the left outside of the picture which lets me think of "The subject should not be facing out of the image". This is why I would place it a bit more to the center with a proporton of the left and right background of about 1/3 to 2/3 (about 1/4 to 3/4 in your picture). I would agree to your composition, if after starting to the left side the upper part of the plant would curve back to the right or if there were another small object like a fly at the right side as a counterweight. --wau > 20:02, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
I like that you had the courage, trying to improve this picture. --Richard Bartz 20:47, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes there is what to discuss, thanks for trying to improve my photograph. Your version is also pretty;) ;) --Luc Viatour 08:32, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It is not fair to compare the resolution of Alvesgaspar's or Richard Bartz' pictures with the reduced res ones of Fir0002 (although for their size they are often top quality). Reduced to the minimal allowed limits, many of us would rival Fir0002 any time!!! Lycaon 20:56, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment True my downsized images get improved sharpness etc, but they are good at full res too, and such quality can be expected and demanded from pix at this size. For an example take a look at this - Image:Large brown mantid07 edit crop.jpg which shows the quality of the image at 100%. Obviously not as high sharpness/quality as the down sampled image, but still quite acceptable. --Fir0002 www 09:08, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
      • To see by myself I reduced the size of this picture so it fits in a 1600x1600 square. It doesn't look as nice as Fir0002's pic IMO. You can do the same at home if you have some spare time too :) -- Benh 21:09, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
        • I just tried, you're right it doesn't look as nice, but to me it looks nicer (no offence to Fir0002) as it is real life and not a studio photo.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info - The 1600px version was added at right (not a nomination). A lot better, isn't it? I've just come from WP:FPC slightly irritated with the "significant motion blur" pedantic chorus. Of course there is some motion blur and the DOF is not the ideal (3,5 mm in the present case), this was taken outside with sunlight, some wind and no tripode - which is useless with a 100 mm macro lens and quick moving creatures. Sometimes, we have the luck to meet friendly and cooperative models, like in this case, but that is uncommon. - Alvesgaspar 10:43, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm now starting macrophotography too. I have similar problems as yours (and this is a reason why I haven't uploaded any of my pics yet, they won't meet expectations here). I've found out however that increasing ISO to 400 (and even 800) is a good compromise. It allows you to use smaller apertures and get a shallower DOF, or to use shorter time exposure. What you lose in noise is fairly compensated by the increase of sharpness and DOF. Wonder if other more experienced macro shooter agree. Benh 11:33, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment One thing I might add to this comment is that Commons needs al kind of pictures of organisms and not only those that fulfil FP or QI requirements.

    • I don't think one should oppose a picture just because it's HDR (but I don't say it's what you did here). HDR allows to override limitations of our material which I read have small dynamic range, lower than that of our eyes (you can notice that easily if you take a picture inside a cathedral and try to have details on both dark walls and bright stained glass, you likely won't be able to achieve this without HDR). Thus I'd say that a proper HDR can result in a picture more natural than non HDR ones. On this picture, contrast is high and maybe it's a bit oversaturated, but this is certainly not due to the HDR tone mapping itself I think. Benh 06:44, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
      • Right, I meant HDR pictures that result in psychedelic, unrealistic colors (unless it was specifically an image to demonstrate such HDRs). Dori | Talk 13:09, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
        • It's true tone mapping can lead very easily to very ugly things, and Category:HDR images looks a bit like a gallery of horrors at some points, but I don't think (hope) that it isn't the case with the image presented here. --Nattfodd 15:10, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
      • HDR by itself is indeed no reason to oppose, but al least a {{Retouched|}} template should be there. The picture has other issues anyhow. Lycaon 07:40, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
    • The human eyes and brain naturally make HDR, adjusting to brightness "on the fly". A camera sensor can't, and this is why sometimes (it's the case here), tone mapped HDR is more realistic than LDR images. As for the whole "retouched" business, I didn't edit anything out of the picture, and cameras themselves modify very heavily an image, especially when they convert it to jpg. People need to get rid of this sacred view of an out-of-the-camera picture, because it's usually much less retouched than what a human can do manually from a raw file and with a memory of the scene. --Nattfodd 07:58, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

  • But even on the well made I have second thoughts after scrutinizing your image: letters are not aligned, nor equally spaced (e.g. +VE and -VE symbols). Lycaon 18:30, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
  • The less-than-ideal appearance of the subscripts is an artifact of whatever software Wikimedia uses to display images. They look find in Inkscape. The non-alignment of +VE and -VE is my aesthetic decision; I chose to put them in the center of the horizontal lines they are connected to. (I have made some slight alignment improvements as a result of Lycaon's comments, but they are barely noticeable when using the Wikimedia SVG viewing software.) --Gerry Ashton 19:51, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

The blobs are artifacts of the SVG rendering software used by Wikimedia and so is the unevenness of the negation bar over F=not (A+B). Indeed, an earlier version that accidentally had a negation bar that was too long showed the bar in the thumbnail, but in a large rendering the bar was completely invisible! (Pun intended.) --Gerry Ashton 12:42, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
Bar is too short when downloaded and viewed with inkscape (well actually not too short, just starts too soon). Blobs are also visible on downloaded copy when viewed with "Eye of GNOME 2.16.1" so there is something there that two different programs render as blobs. :-) --Tony Wills 02:32, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Roesel's bush-cricket (Metrioptera roeseli) which is 15mm or half an inch in size is a European bush-cricket, named after August Johann Rösel von Rosenhof, a German entomologist. 1749 he wrote in a description: „§ 10. Da diese Thiere sehr bösartig sind; so hat man sich in Acht zu nehmen, wenn man sie fangen will: dann sie pflegen wo sie die blose Haut finden, so scharf zu beissen, daß so gleich das Blut darnach gehet. Zur gleichen Zeit flüsset auch aus ihrem Mund ein brauner Safft, welcher nichts anders ist, als die in dem vordern Schlund in eine flüßige Materie verwandelte Speise. Daß aber ihr Bis mit ziemlicher Gewalt geschehe, erhellet daraus, daß man sie in den Hut beissen lässet und selbigen zur gleichen Zeit wegziehet, der Kopf mit dem Schlund an dem Hut allezeit hangen bleibet, und von dem übrigen Körper los gerissen wird.
    I try a short translation :) Because of the badness of this animals you have to take care if you want to catch them, because if they find plain skin, they bite as hard as possible, until the blood will rinse. At the same time there will be a brown liquid comes out of their mouth, which is nothing else than fluidified transformed food. You have to take care about your hat if they stifle onto it, because of the strong impact of the bite the head will seperate from the body if you try to pull it away.

I wasn't 'insinuating' anything, but the image as it appears here does have a washed-out-looking background, probably because of the harsh lighting you mentioned below. Maybe some selective work on that in Photoshop would help. --MichaelMaggs 20:36, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - I agree. Though the composition is great, the quality of the picture is not good enough - Alvesgaspar 17:08, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
    • What specific "bad quality" are you refering to? The reindeer is sharp and well contrasted to the background. The lighting was pretty harsh when I took this shot (one of the rare sunny moments on the hike) and this is the colour of the vegetation on the slopes of Mt Kebnekaise. I really don't get what the criticism is all about. --Nattfodd 19:09, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Lycaon 19:03, 27 August 2007 (UTC) Maybe if there were a clock in the picture so that the hour hands could indicate that the cycle here is supposed to represent 24 hours several hours. On the other hand, the pendulum's period is probably only a few seconds at most, so that would work out to thousands of oscillations over a 24> several hours period. 67.96.174.66 19:02, 27 August 2007 (UTC) Sorry for not signing in before.

    • the speed of the animation isn't necessarily unphysical as no one says it's the earth that rotates (though admittedly the compass suggest this).

No other good way of taking it without endangering yourself or the other cars as the road is pretty narrow and you can't always see the cars coming.

    You can take another picture, but you'd have to fly in front of the mountain or have a big enough telezoom lens to take from another mountain. I have another image of the mountain here showing the winding road. Besides, I actually like the intersecting slopes, I guess it's a matter of preference. Dori | Talk 17:35, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Considering that this is @ 24mm I doubt that you would need much of a telephoto to take it from another mountain. I've taken pictures of mountains many miles away with a midrange zoom. There is a hill on the right visable in both pictures. maybe you could have hiked over there. -Fcb981 11:51, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

I knew as much that sea urchins do not have eyes, but I myself was not sure what were the bright balls that did look as eyes. Then I found out what they were. I have not asked a question about this particular sea urchin, which is nominated here, but I believe it is the same part of the body that I saw at Madagascar.

    • No big deal. I didn't use a tripod because I hadn't taken it with me (this is shot from the top of a small peak). And I couldn't get a much smaller aperture because the wind was blowing very strongly (I had some trouble standing up!) and so the clouds were moving really, really fast, which meant I needed fast shutter speed for the bracketing...

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I will not argue more on this case. Just wanted to bring your attention on that point. On the french featured picture candidates page, the "value" criteria is stated as "utilité" (usefullness). This rule says : "Beau" ne veut pas dire "utile" wich seems quite clear to me, but not to everyone. I first thought the FP images should have a kind of encyclopedic value, but after observing the fp nomination process during a few weeks i concluded it is rather a way of building a collection of beautiful and technically perfect photos, constituted by a small team of devoted users. I am sorry to say so, but you should have the honesty to recognize that. My opinion is that commons has a real problem with values. And as all opinion it must be respected even if you don't want to think about it.Benwik 15:44, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Digger wasp chasing a fly

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Digger wasp of the Sphecidae family (Bembix oculata) chasing a fly. It all happened in front of my eyes and I had very little time to point and shoot. I know that the picture falls short of technical perfection (sharpness, lighting, DOF) but I couldn't do better under the circunstances. Hope that the value of the catch mitigates the technical flaws. Created and and nominated by Alvesgaspar
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info - After paralysing the fly with the sting the wasp is sucking its internal fluids using a beak-like extension of the mouth-parts. The dyptera won't survive the experience... - Alvesgaspar 06:38, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Nice catch :) If you ask for extenuating circumstances i would say: This is a regular part of the Wasp's life. This happens every day, and is not very special. You just have to wait patiently, observe and calculate the daytime. So why not going back tomorrow on the same place and make a sharp one with f12-16? I believe she is waiting for you ;) As you have well foreseen, the technical perfection is on the borderline (DOF, noise, oe, sharpness, size!) and I think it doesn't satisfy a Featured Pictures need.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - The composition is indeed the best thing in this picture, transmiting a feeling of vastness and calm. But the body of the animal is not sharp and detailed enough maybe as a result of a less than optimal lighting. Finally it is unfortunate that part of the head is in the shadow.

That place is almost less real natural things. There are few plant but not real nature (potted plant). These days many butterflies are living in a city(among buildings). If butterfly photo's background must need real natural things only, it maybe doesn't seem natural. On the other hand the banding makes people feel unnatural. That's right as you are saying. Incidentally the banding is a shutter wall :)--Laitche --Laitche 10:50, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Otherwise there would have been no foreground or less sky. And it was my first try so i didnt spend much time on the composition isue. But the mood and the light make it nevertheless a great picture.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created & nominated by --Richard Bartz 20:04, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The tiger beetles are a large group of beetles known for their predatory habits. As shown a Sandlaufkäfer 'Cicindela hybrida' which is 12mm in size. The Frons (forehead) and the claws are a very important part to identify many species, so i did a 4x magnification which is very difficult to produce. This picture illustrates this article in a very professional manner.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Iam not a Entomologist, but i think (based on watching) they left the cold ground when there is foul weather. They also have wings which they can use to reach leaves and rocks.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Iam very disapointed about the progress on this picture above, but . . . I dont give up :) I strongly believe that the head with the claws mighty jaws are the most interesting element on this insect. Shots like this on a insect with 10mm or less than half an inch in size, taken biaswise are the most difficult things in macro photography. Did you knew that in the strict sense macro photography starts with a magnification greater than 1:1? If any User find a similar picture (with the same image-resolution, insect-size and magnification) i will tell this user all my evil and mean macro-freak hints per email :) PS.

Then the less good news: DOF is not really sufficient and above all: this is not its natural environment, it's supposed to be sand! Did you manipulate the beetle (chilling)? They are normally notoriously fast. (compare with this picture). Lycaon 20:27, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It was taken on a river bank and there was no sand far and wide. I can report that there was plenty of rocks and hedges. So i would say this must be his natural environment, maybe not cliché. About DOF, I think we can life with that, because i allways tried to get the maximum, as shown here with f/14 and 2/5 sec. Here and here the DOF on this kind of resulution was not a problem, too. So why not to change your vote to a neutral ? :) --Richard Bartz 20:45, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

In the morning after a cold night its easier to catch insects, because they are moreless dizzy. Thats why you see waterdrops in many macros. I think it is more difficult in Portugal because its too warm in the morning ---Richard Bartz 10:31, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Also, I don't like the crop and the aspect ratio of the picture. More space is needed above and below the beetle - Alvesgaspar 14:14, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
More space would make this picture useless in articles because they often revertet my pictures with the reason that picture with a lot unused space in the background wastes too much space in the article. Another statement was "we dont need postcards" so i changed my concept, because my main-concern is the useability. It would make me sad if the pictures run to seed on the harddisk's on commons :) Therefore it cannot suit everybody --Richard Bartz 15:20, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
