Mønsted limestone mines
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created, uploaded and nominated by Slaunger -- Slaunger (talk) 23:01, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info An illuminated path in the largest limestone mine in the world, Mønsted limestone mine in Denmark. The limestone mine has been excavated over a period of almost 1000 years from the early 11th century untill 1978, mainly by using pickaxes or other handheld tools. The mine has over 60 km paths of which 2 km are illuminated. Some paths are like huge halls, others not passageable by a grown man. In the path shown here is clearly seen how thick layers of limestone alternate with thin layers of flint. The photo itself is an exposure fusion between three bracketed exposures with exposure times of 6, 15 and 30 seconds using CA corrected raw files as input into PTgui. In hindsight, I should have had an even shorther exposure time on the most underexposed photo as the point light sources are slightly burnt in even the 6 sec exposure. Done with an aperture of f/10 and ISO 200 (if i go higher I begin to introduce notieable noise with my camera). I have spend a great deal of time playing around with the exposure fusion to highlight the layered structure, which is not quite as evident when you are in the mines, as well as make the representation faithful. It appears lighter than it really is, as the light sources are weak. A ghost is seen in the long time exposure shot wearing a handheld lamp leaving a light trail. Almost unavoidable due to many guests in the mines.

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Nice pic. Perhaps a little boring centered composition. Weird. When I look at the cliffs in the foreground they appear duplicated or motion blurred. In theory it could be because the vantage point was changing during the shot, while you were focusing on the tower, but I would be surprised if this happened with 1/1000 s exposure unless the helicopter was moving very fast? It could also just be because of the f/4.5 aperture and the associated low DOF. --Slaunger (talk) 12:15, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Slaunger: even a pro lens as the 24-70 has weakness. The border sharpness at long distances is the weakness here. DOF should not be a problem here, because of the distance to the object (at least 200 meters altitude above the sea, and some distance from the tower and the island). There is no downsampling and almost no crop here, normally you do not see 24mp aerial images. Here is a 3 mp version of the same photo, looks very sharp.--ArildV (talk) 13:43, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Built by Skandinavisk Aero Industri with first flight on May 4, 1944. Restored to its wartime configuration after a crash in 1977. In 1949, the OY-DIZ was christened with the name Folke Bernadotte in honour of the Swedish count who had used this very aircraft to make a diplomatic visit to Germany to negotiate for the release of Danish prisoners in German concentration camps near the end of the war.

  • Thanks for you review. No, I will not change the crop in this file, because it is already featured elsewhere, but of course I could upload a new file, which was cropped. But I like the grass as it is. Gives balance to the composition in my opinion in accordance with rule of thirds. --Slaunger (talk) 21:49, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • @Christian Ferrer: You mention how the 131 mm focal length affects the perspective (in I suppose a bad way). I am sorry, but can you elaborate? What would have been a better focal length in your opinion? --Slaunger (talk) 22:08, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
It is not necessarily the focal length the problem, here it is more the association of this focal lenght and this centring and/or crop that makes the composition a little bit unbalenced, I feel as a baby fox who is obliged to raise the head by above herbs to see the plane. In summary the grass is here an obstacle to the reading of the image. How to avoid all this : if I find an answer be sure that I shall tell it you. The no-cropped version is better IMO -- Christian Ferrer Talk 22:27, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
And if you possess a 200mm or higher of course it would have been better. And if you don't have a 200 or 300mm, a photo one or two seconds before, with the plane a bit more in the sky (=less grass) would maybe have been better. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 22:32, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
And in more there is only horizontal lines (plane, grass, sky, background) whitch is certainly increase by your choice of crop....I go to sleep....:) -- Christian Ferrer Talk 22:42, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
@Christian Ferrer: Thanks for your detailed response, Christian. I really appreciate that:) The lens I used was actually a 250 mm, and I could have zoomed more, if I were better at panning:) But I wonder if the end result perspective-wise isn't approximately the same after cropping at 131 mm? It was not really possible for me to get a photo when approaching, due to the presence of very enthusiastic aviation photographers with huge tele lenses standing on small ladders and partially obstructing my view:) You could argue, correctly, that if I had been a bit more pro, I would also have brought a small ladder, and I would have arrived as early as possible to get the best possible position, but this was my first air show photographing. Anyway, sleep well, ChristianSmile. --Slaunger (talk) 23:16, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Hi Slaunger, to develop just a little more my point of view the comparison with the image above is very well. The both images have a centered position of the main subject, the house with the first and the plane with yours. The both images have also 1/3 of sky, 1/3 subject and 1/3 grass on the foreground. However on the first the use of 50mm give an effect of depth. It is typical of the telephoto lens of to crash the different areas (background, subject, foreground, ...). In this one you can see how focal length affects perspective and in more in this exemple we see only 18, 34 and 55mm, imagine with 130, 200mm... -- Christian Ferrer Talk 05:41, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
@Christian Ferrer: Thanks for taking your time to elaborate further. I understand much better now what your point is. I do not agree it is a problem in the nominated photo, but I understand what you see as being the problem with the focal length. Anyway, not really something I can change in the nomineated photo, so either you like it as it is or not. And it appears most don't really care, actually, as there are no votes yetSmile. --Slaunger (talk) 16:54, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

    • Honestly, I don't think complaining about the shadow is appropriate here. The light is very good, and with a strong side light which add relief to the sculpture, there needs to be a shadow on the side. Digitaly removing the shadow will certainly not improve the image. Regards, Yann (talk) 04:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
      • I do not think digitaly removing the shadow is good. Before taking the photo there should have been a lamp placed at left giving light in the left part of the photo. I know that would probably not have been possible for the photograher (a museum visitor I guess). --Nobelpeopleuploader (talk) 15:24, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
        • No, because it would remove the shadow on the sculpture, which would ruin the idea. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:02, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

I agree that an afterwards removal of the shadow wouldn't improve the image; a shadow is not necessarily an evil, but this one is simply too harsh for me, which is hardly avoidable with an object placed so close to the background. --A.Savin 21:00, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

The Warrior on a Horse statue is one of the main symbols of the Skopje 2014 project and is located in the center of Macedonia Square in Skopje, capital of the Republic of Macedonia. Although it is not officially named for him, it is typically thought to depict Alexander the Great. The statue was sculpted by Valentina Stefanovska and completed on September 8, 2011 to commemorate 20 years of the independence of the Republic of Macedonia. The bronze sculpture is 14.5 m tall and it sits on a cylindrical column, which itself is 10 m in height. The column consists of three large ivory sections containing reliefs, each separated by a thinner bronze ring. Each section contains reliefs. The column stands in a fountain and at the base of the column there are 8 bronze soldiers, each 3 m tall and 8 bronze lions, each 2.5 m tall.

    I see your point but there was IMHO no better angle to photograph the monument. I have spent hours there and have uploaded multiple pictures. The sculpture is not lighted in the top, I cannot change that and for composition purposes it was important to achieve a certain symmetry in the fountain (with the lion in the middle). Furthermore from this angle there was the better composition in the background. Poco2 19:09, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Tarfaladalen
  • You can see Sweden's tallest mountain, and several famous glaciers (notably Storglaciären, which has the world's longest data record). The phenomenon on the left is just a normal consequence of the panoramic projection and the fact that you don't have a straight horizon. Another thing is that the valley increases in altitude from left to right in the panorama. The picture also gives a overview of the research station's location. Alexandar Vujadinovic (talk) 07:37, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • The picture may show interesting items, still it is not outstanding itself IMHO. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 11:40, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question I find it interesting, that it has a big contrast alternating very much between almost white and almost black. I am wondering if the contrast is a little too high? Does it really look so black and white? I seems some features are missing, especially in the dark areas, where I believe shadows could be highlighed more. The researh station buildings has very little colors. Are they really colorless or could the image simply use a little more saturation? --Slaunger (talk) 12:01, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
  • That's how the place looks like during summer - large albedo variation everywhere. Of course, if I did a vegetation-only shot, I would have used the Levels tool to tweak the photo, but doing something here would just create an unrealistic picture. If you want a closer look at the research station and the vegetation (the whole valley is above the tree line), see the Tarfala category that I made...

Polish "Bilet Skarbowy" (treasury note) - 5-zloty, dated 8 June 1794. This note is from the first issue of banknotes by the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and was authorized by Tadeusz Kościuszko. The file is already a FP at en-wiki and a part of a valued set here. To anticipate certain doubts - the cut-off top is actually a feature. As an anti-counterfeiting measure, in those times the top margin was cut off and kept together with the serial number of the note, so that by comparing them later to the rest of the note it could be determined if the note was genuine or not.

The Dutch "Mona Lisa"
There is already a Featured Picture of this painting here at Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) - The Girl With The Pearl Earring (1665).jpg, but this image has several serious issues in my opinion 1 unsourced and undocumented 2 revoltingly saturated, our poor little meisje in the last throes of terminal hepatitis, and 3 (astonishingly) cropped at the right. An attempt by me to overwrite it with the new Mauritshuis was met with resistance from City Hall, so I am following the letter of the guidelines and offering a new file and a fresh nomination. This enterprising legacy high resolution file File:Johannes Vermeer - Girl with a Pearl Earring - WGA24666.jpg would also be worth attention were it not for the inauthentic rosy complexion, harbinger this time perhaps of the dreaded Plague so rampant in cities of the time not to mention the editor's personal preference in erm ... pink.
Current project (City Hall permitting) is to engage with others writing up the Mauritshuis collection for Commons and I may bring some others here depending on the progress of this nomination Coat of Many Colours (talk) 17:41, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I've requested a "rename" of the file and corrected once here, "Mauritshuis" instead of "Maurtishuis".--Jebulon (talk) 19:39, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
Cheers. Thanks for that. My damn eyes and drinking too much I expect. Oh well. The Commons administratot will actually make the adjustment., It's really very difficult for me to cope with that kind of thing, so I would appreciate it if someone could make the adjustments for mew. I think stuff might have got lost here. 20:34, 15 July 2014 (UTC)Coat of Many Colours (talk)
The image has gone. I simply can't manage the small print. This is the link to the newly named file File:Johannes Vermeer -Girl with a Pearl Earring - Mauritshuis 670.jpg. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 20:39, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Raymond Poincaré official portrait
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Héliogravure Braun- uploaded, stitched, restored and nominated by me -- Jebulon (talk) 16:37, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support New in "Commons". This is a photogravure (heliography) of the presidential portrait of Raymond Poincaré (1860 - 1934), which was the head of state of France during all the World War I (1913 - 1920). He had no real constitutional powers, but he managed very well several governments, and achieved in maintaining the unity of the country. In France, he is a symbol of tenacity during difficult moments. Restored by me. High size, quality, and value(s), IMO.-- Jebulon (talk) 16:37, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
