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, 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.

  • My explanation as requested: Probably a good photo in the family's own photo album. I think the family members love to see the family's son and dad (I guess) together in front of an old train. But that doesn't make it a featured picture. I think the photo is a little uninteresting. Furthermore, I think the man's black backpack dominates the picture too much. For me the train is the interesting part of the picture and that is unfortunately "pushed back" in the up left corner because of the two persons in front. And a cropped version with the train only will not be good because the two heads are blocking for a part of the train. --Nobelpeopleuploader (talk) 20:37, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

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.

But from a pure photographic viewpoint I cannot see FP aspects here: I cannot get a compositional idea, the motive is visually not interesting (no interesting stone formations, no interesting colors), the bright lights distracts from the structure of the mine which should be the main motive. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:03, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
    • @Tuxyso: Thanks for taking your time to review the photo and provide a detailed explanation. A photo of a limestone mine will of course be rather limestone colored all over with no particularly interesting stones. I think the layer formation between limestone and flint is quite notable in the photo formed in a surprisingly complicated process. But of course, taste differs, and I respect you do not think it has it. --Slaunger (talk) 19:53, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

  • 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)

Why only 10 Mpixels with a 16 Mpixel camera? How come the sky is so dark at 2 pm? --Slaunger (talk) 11:50, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
    • The picture was edited, cropped and resized a bit, of course. But anyway, I think 10-12 Mpixels is enough for most cases. Such tone of sky can often be seen in our latitudes. --Alex Florstein (talk) 12:05, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
      • OK, thanks for the explanation. How about the saturation. Has that been increased significantly? ---Slaunger (talk) 12:11, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Agree with A.Savin. Too much shadow on the left part of the object and a big dominating shadow on the left of the object. The light is not good. --Nobelpeopleuploader (talk) 20:18, 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)
          • Yann, I agree entirely with you regarding the lightning. The lightning is very good as it is. --Slaunger (talk) 20:40, 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... Alexandar Vujadinovic (talk) 13:16, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Anonymous creator, historical Polish official treasury note from the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution, scan by Godot13 - uploaded by Godot13 - nominated by Maire -- Maire (talk) 10:53, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

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.

You can even see the reflection of the photographer in the frog's left (our right) eye. KDS444 (talk) 16:42, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Raymond Monvoisin - Retrato de Juan Manuel de Rosas.
@Yann:The version linked to is not the one I used for restoration. I used the Argentine government's official image (see [2], which is linked in the description page of the image file). The one you link to, which is also the original upload, is very blue and has lost much of the coloring; the subject looks almost violet, almost as if he was choking (or holding his breath too long)! Best regards.--MarshalN20 (talk) 14:38, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
The colors here are also different, which prompt me to oppose even more to your version. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:09, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
