Formalien[edit]

Nominierung[edit]

Leitsätze für die Nominierung[edit]

Bitte lies alle Leitsätze (Englisch) vor der Nominierung.

Dies ist eine Zusammenfassung von Kriterien, auf die du bei der Einreichung und Bewertung von Exzellenz-Kandidaten achten solltest:

  • AuflösungFotografien mit einer Auflösung unter 2 Millionen Pixel werden in der Regel abgelehnt, außer unter „stark mildernden Umständen“. Beachte, dass ein 1600 x 1200 großes Foto 1,93 Megapixel hat und damit weniger als 2 Millionen.
Grafiken auf Commons können auch in anderen Weisen als zur Anzeige auf einen herkömmlichen Computerbildschirm verwendet werden. Sie können auch als Ausdruck oder zur Anzeige auf hochauflösenden Bildschirmen verwendet werden. Man kann nicht vorhersagen, welche Geräte in Zukunft Anwendung finden, deshalb ist es wichtig, dass die nominierten Bilder die höchstmögliche Auflösung haben.
  • Eingescannte Bilder – solange es keine offizielle Richtlinie gibt, findet man unter Help:Scannen für verschiedene Typen von Bildern Hinweise für die Vorbereitung, die hilfreich sein können.
  • Fokus – jedes wichtige Objekt im Bild sollte normalerweise scharf sein.
  • Vordergrund und Hintergrund – Objekte im Vorder- und Hintergrund können stören. Kontrolliere, ob etwas vor dem Motiv des Bildes wichtige Elemente verdeckt. Auch soll nichts im Hintergrund die Komposition verderben, zum Beispiel eine Straßenlampe, die über dem Kopf einer abgebildeten Person „steht“.
  • Allgemeine Qualität – nominierte Bilder sollten von hoher technischer Qualität sein.
  • Digitale Manipulationen betrügen nicht in jedem Fall den Betrachter. Digitale Nachbearbeitungen, um Fehler von Fotografien zu korrigieren, sind allgemein akzeptiert, vorausgesetzt, sie sind begrenzt und gut gemacht, ohne dabei betrügen zu wollen. Akzeptiert werden normalerweise Beschneiden, perspektivische Korrekturen, Schärfen und Verwischen sowie Farb- und Belichtungskorrekturen. Umfangreichere Korrekturen wie das Entfernen von störenden Hintergrundobjekten sollten in der Bildbeschreibung mit Hilfe der Vorlage {{Retouched picture}} klar beschrieben werden. Nicht oder falsch beschriebenen Manipulationen, die dazu führen, dass das Hauptmotiv falsch dargestellt wird, sind unter keinen Umständen akzeptabel.
  • Wertunser Hauptziel ist das Hervorheben der wertvollsten Bilder von allen anderen. Bilder sollten irgendwie etwas Besonderes sein. Darum sei dir bewusst, dass:
    • nahezu jeder Sonnenuntergang ästhetisch ansprechend ist und die meisten keinen wesentlichen Unterschied aufweisen zu anderen,
    • Nachtaufnahmen hübsch sind, aber dass man normalerweise mit Aufnahmen bei Tag mehr Details zeigen kann,
    • schön nicht immer wertvoll bedeuten muss.

Auf der fachlichen Seite gibt es die Belichtung, die Komposition, die Bewegungskontrolle und die Fokustiefe zu beachten.

  • Belichtung bezieht sich auf die Verschluss-Blende-Kombination, die ein Bild mit einer Tonkurve wiedergibt. Idealerweise bildet diese Tonkurve in akzeptabler Genauigkeit Schatten- und Spitzlichtbereiche im Bild ab. Dies nennt man „Belichtungsspielraum“. Bilder können im niedrigen Teil der Tonkurve (unterer Bereich), im mittleren (mittlerer Bereich) oder hohen Teil (oberer Bereich) liegen. Digitale Kameras (oder Bilder) haben einen engeren Belichtungsspielraum als Fotofilme. Fehlende Genauigkeit im Schattenbereich ist nicht unbedingt ein Nachteil. Tatsächlich kann dies ein gewünschter Effekt sein. Eingebrannte Spitzenlichter sind dagegen ein störendes Element.
  • Komposition bezieht sich auf die Anordnung der Elemente im Bild selbst. Die „Drittel-Regel“ ist ein guter Grundsatz für die Komposition und ein Erbe der Gemäldemalerei. Die Idee ist, das Bild mit jeweils zwei horizontalen und zwei vertikalen Linien zu teilen. Dadurch wird das Bild in horizontale und vertikale Drittel geteilt. Das Motiv im Zentrum des Bildes zu platzieren, ist oft weniger interessant, als es auf einem der vier Schnittpunkte der horizontalen und vertikalen Schnittlinien zu platzieren. Der Horizont sollte eigentlich niemals in der Mitte des Bildes liegen, wo er das Bild in zwei Hälften „teilt“. Die obere oder untere horizontale Linie ist oft eine gute Wahl. Der Hauptgedanke ist, den Raum zu nutzen, um ein dynamisches Bild zu schaffen.
  • Bewegungskontrolle bezieht sich auf die Weise, wie die Bewegung im Bild abgebildet wird. Die Bewegung kann stillstehend oder verschwommen sein. Weder das eine noch das andere ist besser; es kommt auf den Zweck der Aufnahme an. Bewegung ist relativ innerhalb der Objekte des Bildes. Zum Beispiel vermittelt uns das Fotografieren eines relativ zum Hintergrund stillstehenden Rennwagens kein Gefühl für das Tempo oder die Bewegung. Also zwingt uns die Fototechnik, das Motiv stillstehend vor verschwommenem Hintergrund abzubilden, wodurch ein Gefühl für die Bewegung entsteht. Dies nennt man „Schwenken“. Andererseits kann eine Aufnahme eines im Vergleich zur Umgebung stillstehenden Basketballspielers während eines hohen Sprunges das „Unnatürliche“ der Natur dieser Pose sichtbar machen.
  • Fokustiefe (DOF – Depth Of Field) bezieht sich auf den Fokusbereich vor und hinter dem Hauptmotiv. Die Fokustiefe wird abhängig von den spezifischen Erfordernissen jedes Bildes gewählt. Große oder kleine Fokustiefe kann auf die eine oder andere Weise die Qualität der Aufnahme vergrößern oder schmälern. Geringe Fokustiefe kann die Aufmerksamkeit auf das Hauptmotiv des Bildes lenken, das Hauptmotiv erscheint dadurch von seiner Umgebung gelöst. Hohe Fokustiefe bringt Abstände zwischen Motiven zur Geltung. Objektive mit kurzer Brennweite (Weitwinkel) ergeben eine hohe Fokustiefe, umgekehrt haben Objektive mit langer Brennweite (Teleobjektive) eine flache Fokustiefe. Kleine Blendenöffnungen bringen große Fokustiefe, und umgekehrt große Blendenöffnungen bringen flache Fokustiefen.

Bei den grafischen Elementen gibt es Form, Volumen, Farbe, Struktur, Perspektive, Balance, Proportion, usw.

  • Form bezieht sich auf den Umriss des Hauptmotivs.
  • Volumen bezieht sich die dreidimensionale Qualität des Motivs. Diese wird durch Seitenlicht herausgebildet. Im Gegenteil zum allgemeinen Glauben ist Frontbeleuchtung nicht die beste Wahl. Frontbeleuchtung lässt das Motiv abflachen. Das beste Tageslicht hat man am frühen Morgen oder nachmittags.
  • Farbe ist wichtig. Übersättigte Farben sind nicht gut.
  • Struktur bezieht sich auf die Oberflächenqualität des Motivs. Diese wird durch Seitenbeleuchtung verbessert.
  • Perspektive bezieht sich auf den „Grad“ zusammen mit Linien, die in einen Fluchtpunkt innerhalb oder außerhalb des Bildes enden.
  • Balance bezieht sich auf die Anordnung der Motive innerhalb des Bildes, die entweder das scheinbar gleiche Gewicht haben oder schwerer auf einer Seite erscheinen.
  • Proportion bezieht sich auf die Größenunterschiede der Objekte im Bild. Normalerweise tendieren wir dazu, kleine Gegenstände klein im Vergleich zu anderen darzustellen. Eine gute Methode kann aber sein, kleine Objekte groß im Gegensatz zu wirklichen Größenverhältnissen abzubilden. Zum Beispiel: Eine kleine Blume überwiegt gegenüber einem großen Berg. Dies nennt man Maßstabsinversion.
Nicht alle Elemente müssen berücksichtigt werden. Einige Fotografien können anhand individueller Eigenschaften beurteilt werden. Für ein Bild kann die Farbe oder die Struktur wichtig sein, oder Farbe und Strukur, usw.
  • Symbolische Aussage oder Relevanz…. Der Meinungskrieg kann hier beginnen…. Ein schlechtes Bild von einem sehr schwierigen Motiv ist ein besseres Bild als ein gutes Bild von einem gewöhnlichen Motiv. Ein gutes Bild von einem schwierigen Motiv ist ein außergewöhnliches Foto.
Bilder können kulturell beeinflusst sein durch den Fotografen und/oder den Betrachter. Die Bedeutung des Bildes sollte vor dem kulturellen Hintergrund des Bildes beurteilt werden, nicht durch den kulturellen Hintergrund des Betrachters. Ein Bild „spricht“ zu Menschen und hat die Möglichkeit, Emotionen auszulösen, wie zum Beispiel Zärtlichkeit, Zorn, Ablehnung, Heiterkeit, Traurigkeit usw. Gute Fotografen sind nicht darauf beschränkt, gefällige Emotionen zu provozieren.

Um die Chancen für einen Erfolg deiner Nominierung zu erhöhen, lies vor der Nominierung alle Leitsätze.

Abwahlkandidaten der exzellenten Bilder aufstellen[edit]

Mit der Zeit ändern sich die Standards für die Exzellenten Bilder. Es kann entschieden werden, dass Bilder, die vorher „gut genug“ für die Exzellenten waren, es nicht mehr sind. Dies ist zum Aufstellen eines Bildes, welches deiner Meinung nach es nicht mehr verdient, exzellent zu sein. Dazu wähle mit

  • {{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep (das Bild verdient es, exzellent zu sein) oder mit
  • {{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist (das Bild verdient es nicht, exzellent zu sein).

Wenn du denkst, dass ein Bild nicht mehr den Exzellenz-Kriterien entspricht, kannst du es für die Abwahl nominieren, indem du den Bildnamen in dieses Textfeld (einschließlich des Zusatzes Image:) hinter den bereits stehenden Text im Feld kopierst:


In der eben erstellten neuen Seite für die Nomination des Abwahlkandidaten solltest du einfügen:

  • Informationen über den Ursprung des Bildes (Ersteller, Uploader),
  • Einen Link zur originalen Exzellenz-Kandidatur-Seite (es erscheint unter „Links“ auf der Beschreibungsseite),
  • Deine Begründung für die Nominierung und dein Benutzername.

Danach musst du einen Link zu der erstellten Seite oben auf der Seite mit der Liste der Abwahlkandidaten manuell einfügen.

Richtlinien für Exzellenz-Kandidaten[edit]

Allgemeine Regeln[edit]

  1. Nach dem Ende des Abstimmungs-Zeitraumes wird das Ergebnis am Tag 10 nach der Nominierung festgestellt (im Zeitplan weiter unten gezeigt). Also dauert der Abstimmungs-Zeitraum 9 Tage, plus die Stunden bis zum Ende von Tag 9. Stimmen, die an Tag 10 oder danach abgeben wurden, werden nicht gezählt.
  2. Nominierungen von anonymen Mitwirkenden sind erwünscht.
  3. Mitwirken bei Diskussionen von anonymen Mitwirkenden sind erwünscht.
  4. Nur Nutzer mit einem commons-account, der mindestens 10 Tage alt ist und 50 Beiträge hat, können wählen. Ausnahme: Die eigene Nominierung kann gewählt werden, unabhängig von Alter und Beiträge.
  5. Die Nominierung zählt nicht als Stimme. Unterstützung muss explizit angegeben werden.
  6. Nominierungen können vom Einsteller jederzeit zurückgezogen werden. Dies geschieht einfach durch das Schreiben von „I withdraw my nomination“ (eng. Ich ziehe meine Nominierung zurück)
    oder durch Hinzufügen von {{withdraw|~~~~}}.
  7. Denke daran, das Ziel von Wikimedia Commons ist es, einen zentralen Speicher für freie Bilder, genutzt von allen Wikimedia-Projekten, bereitzustellen, einschließlich für mögliche zukünftige Projekte. Dies ist nicht einfach ein Speicher für Wikipedia-Bilder, deshalb sollten hier die Bilder nicht danach beurteilt werden, ob sie zu diesem Projekt passen.
  8. Bilder können vorzeitig am Tag 5 (fünfter Tag nach der Nominierung) von der Abstimmungsliste genommen werden („Regel des 5. Tages“):
    1. Wenn sie keine Unterstützung erhalten, die Einsteller nicht mitgezählt.
    2. Wenn sie 10 oder mehr Pro und kein Kontra erhalten haben.
  9. Bilder, welche durch die Vorlage {{FPX}} markiert wurden, können 48 Stunden, nachdem die Vorlage gesetzt wurde, von der Liste entfernt werden, vorausgesetzt, das Bild hat außer von den Einstellern keine positiven Stimmen (Unterstützung) erhalten.
  10. Bilder, welche durch die Vorlage {{FPD}} (FP denied) markiert wurden, können 48 Stunden, nachdem die Vorlage gesetzt wurde, von der Liste entfernt werden.
  11. Es dürfen von einem Benutzer maximal 2 Nominierungen gleichzeitig platziert werden.

Regeln zur Wahl und Abwahl[edit]

Ein Kandidat wird in die Galerie der exzellenten Bilder aufgenommen, wenn folgende Bedingungen erfüllt sind:

  1. Passende Lizenz (selbstverständlich)
  2. Mindestens 7 positive Stimmen (Pro-Stimmen)
  3. Das Verhältnis von unterstützenden zu ablehnenden Stimmen ist mindestens 2/1 (eine Zwei-Drittel-Mehrheit)
  4. Zwei verschiedene Versionen desselben Bildes können nicht beide exzellent werden, sondern nur das mit der höheren Zahl an Stimmen.

Die Abwahl-Regeln sind dieselben wie zur Wahl der exzellenten Bilder bei gleichbleibenden Abstimmungs-Zeitraum. Die Regel des 5. Tages gilt für Abwahlkandidaten, die keine Stimme für die Aberkennung des Exzellenz-Status' bis zum Tag 5 erhalten haben, außer die des Antragstellers.

Ein erfahrener Nutzer kann die Anfrage beenden. Wie man eine Anfrage beendet, siehe unter Commons:Kandidaten für exzellente Bilder/Was tun, wenn der Abstimmungszeitraum zu Ende ist.

Vor allem sei freundlich[edit]

Bitte bedenke, dass das Bild, das du beurteilst, das wohlüberlegte Werk von jemandem ist. Vermeide Phrasen wie „it looks terrible“ (eng. sieht schrecklich aus) oder „I hate it“ (eng. Ich hasse es). Wenn du dagegen Stellung nehmen musst, tu dies bitte mit Rücksichtnahme. Bedenke außerdem, dass deine Englischkenntnisse nicht die gleichen sein müssen wie die eines anderen. Wähle deine Worte sorgfältig.

Viel Spaß beim Bewerten …, und denke daran: Alle Regeln können gebrochen werden.

Dome of the old Chapter House, better known as the Holy Chalice Chapel, because there supposedly the Holy Chalice is exhibited. The chapel is part of the Metropolitan Cathedral–Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady of Valencia, a Roman Catholic parish church in Valencia, Spain. The cathedral was consecrated in 1238 and  dedicated by order of James I the Conqueror to Saint Mary. The chalice kept in this chapel has been defended as the true Holy Grail; indeed, most Christian historians declare that all their evidence points to this Valencian chalice as the most likely candidate for being the authentic cup used at the Last Supper and was actually the official papal chalice for many popes, and has been used by many others, most recently by Pope Benedict XVI, on July 9, 2006. The chalice dates from the 1st century, and was given to the cathedral by king Alfonso V of Aragon in 1436.

    • CAs fixed. Cannot change your perception regarding the composition - I like it as it is, especially with the inclined branch. But I cannot follow your focus argument. What is wrong to focus on the eyes? Head, eyes and a lot of areas of the coat are sharp.
      Und noch mal auf Deutsch um Missverständnissen vorzubeugen: Die CAs habe ich korrigert. Deinen Kommentar bzgl. der zu gewöhnlichen Komposition kann ich nicht verstehen, mir gefällt sie. Deinen Kommentar bzgl. des Fokus ist nicht nachvollziehbar. Was bitte ist falsch daran auf die Augen zu fokussieren (wie bei Porträts üblich, sollte dir bekannt sein)? Große Teile des Kopfes, der Augen und des Fells sind scharf - ich kann beim besten Willen kein Problem sehen. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:19, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Es ist nach wie vor ein unschöner Farbsaum zu erkennen und auch eine unschöne Ausfransung der Kontur. Der Ast korrespondiert fotografisch mit nichts anderem im Bild, im Gegenteil ragt er nur als störendes Element in Richtung des Betrachters empor. Dass ausgerechnet der hintere Teil des Holzes scharf, aber der vordere sehr prominente ins Bild gerückte unscharf ist finde ich eben unglücklich. Zur Katze selbst: sie sieht schlauchförmig aus und wenn man es nicht durch die eigene Erfahrung besser wüsste konnte man das Tier auch für eine felltragende Schlange halten. Ich kann daran kein geglücktes Detail erkennen, was mich von den Socken haut. Fazit: generell technisch handwerklich okay, für ein FP mir klar zu wenig. --Wladyslaw (talk) 20:03, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info A lateral view of a Saperda carcharias, a species of longhorn beetles. Sadly one of the antennae was broken but I think thats not that annoying from this side. c/u/n by me, mathias K 14:53, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- mathias K 14:53, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The focus is very soft on the remaining antenna and somewhat soft on some of the legs. First I suspected it was due to DOF issues, but it is taken at f/13, so I guess it cannot be that? Could it be motion blur? The exposure time was 1/60 s, a little slow. Whatever, the reason is, it is a pity as it distracts from the body, which has a very nice detail level. Light and composition is also good. Subject is interesting. I did not know about the longhorn beetle and that it is actually considered a serious pest for poplar trees. Not sure I can support due to the soft focus issues, but it was interesting and I learned something. --Slaunger (talk) 17:22, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Slaunger! First of all, thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to read because of your last point: "it was interisting and I learned something". Thats really cool!! Cause one of the most importent things in taking pictures for me is that the pic makes us want to know more about something. And if that is the case, then it is much "better" than any fp-sign could be! :-)
To the technical thing: The soft focus issue you mentioned is in fact a dof effect. When I was taking the pic my first intention was to get the max possible magnification with the whole bettle on the sensor. To get this I need to go as close as possible to the bettle. In this actual pic the distance between sensor and bettle was ~45-50cm. With my 90mm macro and f/13 this means a total dof of ~1,0 - 1,3cm. Now you need to keep in mind that the beetle is pretty "big" with ~4cm body length, and when it was sitting like this it is also wider then 1,5cm from "edge to edge". So you see, even with f/13 it isn´t possible to get the whole body in focus with this resulting magnification/resolution. I hope I could explain myself, my intention and the picture passably... ;-) Regards mathias K 18:28, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
I understand completely, and I am glad you appreciate the review, although I did not support:) It surprised me that the f/13 is the limiting factor, but you are right, I just checked with an online DOF calculator. It appears that if you had moved away to 75 cm you would have gotten a 2.5 times larger DOF, at a cost of approximately half the pixelage on the main body. Maybe it would have been a better compromise, but it is so easy to be smart in hindsight. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:24, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not enough DOF. Choose a more suitable lens or step back as Slaunger suggested. :) Jee 03:03, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I got the dof point and youre right. It is very narrow. But as I wrote above, there isn't much room for more dof at this magnification. When, for instance, shooting portraits with f/2.8 the focus should match the eyes amd the rest should be oof. Its nothing else here, I had to choose between max magnification, with a limited dof which fits the eyes and the body, or less magnification with more dof... It looks like I choose the wrong one. ;-) Greetings mathias K 07:24, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose These shots are always very hard to control from an exposure point of view, if you 'only' make a single shot as here. Although nice, I think too many details are lost in the most brightly illuminated areas. Diliff has recently made an impressive display of what is possible for these church/cathedral interiors by combining different exposures. I consider his work as being at a completely outstanding level, and not the new baseline for FP. Still, I think the gap is a little too large quality-wise. Sorry. --Slaunger (talk) 17:53, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment. I think the largest problem for me is the composition. It feels unbalanced due to the seating being cropped. Well, I'd be the first to say that you shouldn't have to do what I do to get a FP, but my methodology provides a lot more flexibility which I often appreciate when I get home and process the images. I can get a wider angle view than is normally possible with a lens, and later on, if I feel the view is too wide, I can crop it a bit without feeling like I'm losing precious detail by doing so. And of course with multiple exposures, there is no worry that detail has been lost due to overexposure. But actually in this image, I think it could have been underexposed by 1/2 a stop or maybe more without losing any detail in the shadows. Diliff (talk) 18:18, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Of course. One question though, how do you decide between 35mm and 50mm? Is it a matter of DoF or time? Or has the 50mm replaced the 35mm for better quality/higher res? --DXR (talk) 09:08, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Good question. The Sigma 50mm has replaced the 35mm for most of my stitching now, but I sometimes go for 35mm when I need wider depth of field. 50mm provides only just enough DOF in many of my panoramas (even when using the hyperfocal distance to maximise DOF) and sometimes I need to go all the way to f/16 (the smallest aperture on both the 35mm and 50mm lenses). At this aperture, diffraction is a problem and starts to eat away at the detail advantage of 50mm. Also, 50mm requires more individual photos to capture the same scene. So basically, I use 35mm when I am not as concerned with quality/high res, and when there are objects very close to the camera that would be out of focus with my 50mm lens. But for most stitched architectural photography, 50mm is the 'sweet spot' for me and if the scene is worth a bracketed and stitched image, it's probably also worth spending an extra minute or two to capture it with the 50mm lens. ;-) Diliff (talk) 09:30, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Interesting explanation about 35-50mm, thanks. One question from me as well, do you remove people from the scene before stitching or the other way round? Removing first, right? You'll have to organize a workshop! ;) --Kadellar (talk) 11:08, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Actually, I very rarely need to use Photoshop to remove people, I just wait very patiently until people are not in the frame. ;-) It's a bit easier because of the stitching though. For example, If they are on the right side, I can take all the photos of the left side (and all the photos of the ceiling). I just have to keep a mental picture of which sections still need to be taken, and then I wait until people decide to move away. Sometimes it doesn't take long, sometimes I wait for 15+ minutes and one person leaves just as another person arrives. It can be very frustrating. Sometimes I just give up and leave them in the photo, but it's rare. Maybe the looks I give these people while I wait is enough to make them disappear! ;-) Diliff (talk) 11:45, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support French gothic cathedrals need you too ! (please see note. Maybe -I repeat, maybe- I've found something a little wrong)--Jebulon (talk) 14:18, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
    • The slight tilt in the ceiling ribs is probably because I wasn't perfectly centred (or the ceiling isn't perfectly in line with the floor tiles). The problem with these old cathedrals is that you would assume that the middle of the central floor tiles is the middle, but not always... Even if you are away from the true centre by just a one centimetre, that can be enough to be very obvious in a photo like this. Lines deviate more when the angle of view is very wide. Diliff (talk) 16:09, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
      • Oh, and I would love to spend some time in the French cathedrals. My wife is from Picardie but we usually just spend all our time in France with her family... I was surprised to learn that there are six cathedrals in Picardie! Beauvais, Amiens, Noyon, Senlis, Soissons and Laon. There are a lot more cathedrals in France than in England... It would take a long time to visit them all. Diliff (talk) 16:58, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

      • Thanks for the link; as far as I understand it would require a series of tripod shots, which is probably not the case here, and unlike the scene with the people who move around quickly we have here a scene with buses which - I guess - stop for a relatively long time, so that I doubt that an otherwise homogenous series would have been possible. There is of course always a possibility to apply PS cloning, but in this case with relatively big parts of street and facade obscured by the buses, it will probably not really work, or just with visible retouching traces, which I certainly would not prefer. --A.Savin 10:03, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
      • Thanks for the link too. I had heard about that, but I don't usually take my tripod with daylight, I prefer (by now) single shots, though I'd like to learn how to stitch pictures like you do. However this is one of the busiest places in Madrid and one of the main bus stops (even at 3am) and you have to wait for the sequence of traffic lights to have no cars in the foreground, waiting for a chance to have no buses and no cars would take forever (I understood the technique, but imo some parts would always be obscured, it is very busy), to have some good takes it took me about 20 minutes and I was starting to be sun-burnt haha; in this one less than half a second later a few motorbikes would appear in the picture coming from the left. I also think buses are somehow part of the place, so it's not so disturbing. As Alexandr says, cloning would also be difficult, and I don't master photoshop. --Kadellar (talk) 10:54, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

    I decided to nominate the picture when I saw that it was used to illustrate a talk by Peter Wynne Rees (the chief planner of the City of London from 1985). London is not Paris or Florence, it is a much more chaotic urban landscape (not as harmonious and beautiful, but perhaps more exciting). The picture captures the urban landscape with typical elements for London. The River Thames, one of many railway bridges, all generations of the skyscrapers in city, the typical mix of old and new. I do not care if the bridge is not appealing, the bridge is IMO an interesting and important part of the urban landscape.--ArildV (talk) 17:55, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Dettifoss is a northern Icelandic waterfall situated on the Jökulsá á Fjöllum river
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Dettifoss, a northern Icelandic waterfall situated on the Jökulsá á Fjöllum river, has a width of 100m and a drop of 45m, making it Europe's most powerful waterfall with an average flow of 193m3/s. Its enormous dimensions can be measured using the group of people on the left bank as scale. What I like about the picture is the barren and yet powerful, almost primeval mood it conveys.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As I so rarely visit this candidates page, I don't want to vote, but I would agree that Dettifoss looks somewhat strange in this photo, just too smooth and static through the long exposure - much smoother than the actual impression is (I have actually seen this waterfall a few years ago). In my opinion, images like File:Iceland Dettifoss 1972.jpg (already a featured picture) or File:Dettifoss TimBekaert.JPG better convey the actual "Dettifoss feel".

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I agree that the waterfall is not helped by the long exposure in this case. I find that around 1/10 to 1/2 seconds is the ideal exposure length for waterfalls to achieve a sense of movement and flow, but without completely removing the texture of the water. It's also very monochromatic, although I guess this is just the reality of the landscape. Diliff (talk) 11:07, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Interesting, I really thought this picture would meet with a more positive response. Anyway, thanks for your reviews. And yes, Diliff, the reality of the landscape up there is in fact rather "monochromatic", with overcast skies, rocks of all sorts and sizes, and muddy water. Pictogram voting delete.svg I withdraw my nomination --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 12:04, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
    • It's not a bad photo at all, but I don't think the exposure length and the position of the camera is ideal, I also don't get a sense of the scale of the waterfall, except when I notice how small the people are on the other side. It's better when the picture can speak to you without having to look at the little details like that to understand it. I don't like to tell people where they should have taken a photo from because I don't know what options were available, but it would have been nice to see it either from closer to the edge or from further away and along the cliff edge so that you can see the waterfall's drop better. Or from higher above it, but I guess that is not possible! :-) Diliff (talk) 13:11, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Palma Cathedral, Majorca

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Very impressive view, composition, and size (I did not find any stitching error). Some "rework" in the sky is visible -artefacts- (I know how it is difficult to manage this). The contrasts of some parts of the building and vegetation are not the same everywhere (some parts look like "dusty" and pale). But it can be corrected and we already have promoted worst pictures than this one, IMO...--Jebulon (talk) 09:54, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
The few "dusty" areals are no fault of the stitching or a sign of bad processing. The sun was shing very strong this day and there are some interference. This phenomenon you can find also in my single shots of this church (e.g. File:Mallorca - Kathedrale von Palma6.jpg). I understand if you oppose because of this but I don't think it's thatmost disturbing. A similar physical effect you can see on this image File:Toronto - ON - Schaft des CN Tower.jpg which is for sure actually interessting.
