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.

Weitere Vorlagen gibt es hier.

Bitte füge ein paar Worte an, warum dir das Bild gefällt oder nicht gefällt, insbesondere wenn du dagegen stimmst. Bitte denke auch daran, zu unterschreiben (~~~~). Anonyme Stimmen sind nicht zugelassen.

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 immer noch, als exzellent zu gelten) oder mit
  • {{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist (das Bild verdient es nicht mehr, als exzellent zu gelten).

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.

I think that actually the angle is the best one for this building, but I don't remember why I took it behind the fence, so that's a problem. The contrail mentioned by Daniel is also a minus and the lighting/timing was not the best either, because most of the building is in shadow. To my defense I've to say that I had a tough schedule in Helsinki and didn't have time to look for the best light in all places I was. Poco2 09:40, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It is slightly tilted in CW direction Poco2 18:34, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
    • I don't think it is really, it's just that it was taken from a slightly off-centre position (the viewpoint from the church where I took the photo isn't perfectly in line with the building), which means that the doorway at the bottom isn't vertically aligned with the spire and gives the appearance of a tilt. I had a very close look and there seems to be a tiny amount of CW tilt (I measured it as 0.3 degrees), but that's only possible to notice if you are pixel peeping and aligning vertical lines against the edge of the screen, and I don't believe it's perceivable in regular viewing. The tilt that you are more likely to perceive is due to the visual illusion I mentioned above. Diliff (talk) 01:09, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

    Colin, I applied a partial correction, because going further I thought, would look too distorted. Let's see how the uncorrected version below goes, I am curious. Regarding the sky, to me it looks pretty smooth. I reduced the scope of the sharpening mask but without being really sure that it is necessary. Poco2 09:56, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

The origin of the word is "someone who should be breastfed" is well known breastfeeding of different animals by humans.

My camera has some limitations; I've to move the spot focus point using a joystick, which takes time. The fixed LCD is also not very helpful as I've to kiss the mud to get a view. :) Thanks all for the quick appreciation. Jee 02:38, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Yeah, I know how that is, that's why this amateur photographer sticks to moth photography, lights attract the moths overnight and then the next day, they're still there, and they don't fly during the day unless touched or bothered. Anyway, great pic! --AmaryllisGardener talk 03:08, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Ha ha; I like your moths. BTW, I see some point in your suggestion and made a crop. There is plenty of room in original even if I'm in the closest focusing distance because the subject is very small.

The church's name derives from the fact that the first Christian church structure on the site was built directly over (Latin: supra) the ruins or foundations of a temple dedicated to the Egyptian goddess Isis, which had been erroneously ascribed to the Greco-Roman goddess Minerva.

The church is located in the Piazza della Minerva one block behind the Pantheon in the Pigna rione of Rome, Italy, within the ancient district known as the Campus Martius.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment D’accord. --Kreuzschnabel 21:29, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment. But why didn't you just shoot the image from the fence, or just to the right side of it? I know you would have had a lower point of view, but I think it would have improved the composition. The lighting is nice and really makes the dam stand out from its surroundings. Diliff (talk) 15:58, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Having read your question I wonder why I didn’t even consider to do so. Of course you’re right about the fence being cropped out but the lower point would lead to two issues: a considerable amount of background hill would be covered, and the battlements on the opposite wall would not be visible either. I don’t think that would improve the image. --Kreuzschnabel 21:29, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
      • Fair enough. It's always slightly unfair for viewers to tell you what you should have done, because they are usually unaware of the terrain and exactly how the change would affect the photo. It's easy to be an 'armchair critic' as they say. :-) Diliff (talk) 23:36, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

    • The way I see it, Poco has traded tilted vertical lines in order to reduce perspective distortion. If Poco had used an architectural perspective, the distortion would have been greater. I still prefer to perserve straight vertical lines, but in wide views such as this, it is unavoidable to get some kind of distortion and the distortion is perhaps no worse than mine. I guess the difference between this image and my stitched images is that I can retain more sharpness and resolution so the distortion does not affect the quality as much. With a single frame, it is not so easy. Diliff (talk) 11:28, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The "standard" rectilinear view is an FP Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Iglesia de San Pedro, Teruel, España, 2014-01-10, DD 10.JPG. This one is closer and sharper with more detail and better handling of the lighting. The ultra-wide rectilinear has its own distortions. And File:Iglesia de San Pedro, Teruel, España, 2014-01-10, DD 16-17 HDR.JPG is seriously bendy! The converging verticals draw the eye to the apex and make one feel small, looking up. This is a valid perspective choice, rather than a technical error. -- Colin (talk) 15:43, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
    • Both this and the second image you cited are standard rectilinear though. As far as I can see, the only difference is the position and tilt of the camera. The angle of view seems the same although unlike the other image, the shutter speed, aperture and focal length have been removed from the EXIF data of the file so I can't be sure. Diliff (talk) 11:28, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
      • I have added more information, also the camera settings (ISO 100, 17 mm f/11 2,5s and 8s). One thing, though, I haven't removed anything. As I've explained here and there I have a problem with the EXIF info update module of my enfusion SW that I used for (pseudo-) HDRs. I don't aim to hide any information, the other way around. Poco2 12:02, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Regarding the observations of Diliff and Colin I pretty much agree with them. In this picture I got "in the middle of the thing" and the result of a 17mm lens is what you see. I could make a version where verticals are vertical but, apart from the fact that I'd lose half of the picture, the result wouldn't be what I was looking for: "transporting" the viewer into the picture. One of the constraints of the picture when I took it was to be careful with the crop at the top (specially the middle top). David, I think that you'd have a worse time even in Spain to take pictures of churches with a tripod 15 minutes long than in France. I negotiated it (hard) after explaining what the picture was for and got inside 5 minutes before everybody else did in the afternoon allowance. Sometimes I do really miss a kind of acreditation for Wikimedia, that would ease my life. Poco2 12:02, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
    • Sorry, I didn't mean that you were deliberately hiding the EXIF data, just that it is missing. It's frustrating that they are so restrictive about photography. There are many locations in England that I would love to be able to photograph but getting permission is hard. I've written to many organisations asking for permission but of course I'm not officially representing Wikimedia, so I'm not usually given any special allowances. Really, the only notable example so far who has given me permission is St Paul's Cathedral. That was a big success though, because photography is usually completely forbidden and there are not many high quality photos of the interior anywhere on the internet. I was given a whole hour but it wasn't really enough. I wish I had another chance because now with my 50mm lens and a bit more experience shooting church interiors, I would have been able to take better photos, but I'm happy with what I managed to take under some time pressure. I have managed to get permission to photograph the interiors of the Bodleian Library in Oxford (again, photography is usually strictly forbidden) and I will be visiting in early January in the morning before it opens to the University. Lighting and time will be very limited, so I'm not sure what results I'll get, but we will see. I agree though, it would be great to get accreditation or for Wikimedia to be able to negotiate on our behalf somehow. Diliff (talk) 13:52, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
    • Diliff by "standard" I meant "looking straight ahead", as well as the choice of projection. I think here "pointing the camera up" is a good creative choice here. It displays aspects of the view one sees if one were there, looking up, but also (since it is a flat fixed 2D view) has attributes one wouldn't see. Not everything unnatural that is due to a lens is a "fault". For example, with shooting a photo with shallow depth of field -- something the eye never sees. So is background blur a distortion just because it isn't how we perceive the world in person? And bokeh highlights are merely a lens artifact. The viewer isn't mislead here. Architectural perspective is not the only one. My 2p. -- Colin (talk) 13:14, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
      • Ah ok, I agree, the tilt is good for the composition in this case (although the altar isn't exactly centred so the symmetry is an issue). Just as we don't see a shallow depth of field with our own eyes, we also don't see vertical lines leaning inward as a camera does so I agree there also. We would if our retina extended across our whole field of view, but it doesn't, so we move our eyes to re-centre the view and the vertical line straightens when it is centred. However, I think that is a good argument for why we should (if we can) try to preserve the vertical lines - it better matches what our eyes see. I admit that it isn't possible to do so in this image without introducing fairly significant distortion elsewhere. So yes, in short, I agree that it isn't a rule for all cases, just a guideline that works in most non-extreme cases. Diliff (talk) 13:52, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support, although as mentioned above, it isn't entirely symmetrical. Could benefit from a slight crop to the right hand side. Diliff (talk) 13:55, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
