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.

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.

It is odd that the railway track is lighter in the cloud-shadows in the foreground than it is in the sunny patches.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Colin - uploaded by Colin - nominated by Colin -- Colin (talk) 14:19, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Ok, the sky is overcast and the hour is neither golden nor blue, but the viewpoint is the platform near the top of the dome on the Methodist Central Hall, This only open to the public for a few hours, one day a year on the Sunday of Open House London weekend. So there isn't much chance to choose one's weather let alone choose the time of day. The unique viewpoint and extraordinary resolution enhance the educational value here beyond a QI to give some wow in my opinion. Specifically:
  • It shows all 96m of Big Ben (Elizabeth Tower) from base to top. Many photos of this side of the tower are cropped or obscured at the base by the trees, fencing or surrounding buildings.
  • The viewpoint is equal in height to the bottom of the clock face, and 400m distant. Therefore, the narrow vertical angle-of-view and perpendicular gaze means that the subject is not distorted, giving a true representation of the proportions and dimensions. Almost all near-view photos are taken at ground level so suffer from vertical perspective issues that can't be fully corrected. Horizontally, the angle is slightly off of face-on, which allows for more than one clock to be visible and to give a sense of depth to the tower -- other high-resolution images of the tower are flat.
  • The New Palace Yard with Jubilee fountain is visible from this angle.
  • The Union Jack is flying next to Big Ben -- can't get more British than that.
  • It is at least twice as detailed as any previous photograph of Big Ben, while also including some of the Palace of Westminster and surrounding area. Overall, this image is 205 megapixels.
I recommend using the Non-flash viewer to examine the image since the Flash viewer zooms to 200% and limits the quality of the JPG it displays. Can you find Shrek? -- Colin (talk) 14:19, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Well done! Though the details at 100 per-cent view do visibly suffer from noise reduction, this is not a reason to downscore at the resolution and detail level supplied. Found Shrek. --Kreuzschnabel 09:30, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. Not crazy about the composition but as you say, the viewpoint is pretty limited in terms of when and where you can shoot from and this is a unique angle. Also, were different shutter speeds used? Big Ben seems to get significantly darker around the clockface, which also seems to be in line with the horizon. Or did you apply a gradient filter on the sky? Either way, seems a bit odd and I've never noticed it being darker in any other images of Big Ben. Anyway, it's the extreme detail and unique location that gets this image over the line for me, and for that reason it's very useful. Diliff (talk) 13:07, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the support. The shots were all taken fully manual with same 1/500s shutter. I checked and there's no graduated filter used. A couple of small spot adjustments to remove some fringing and moire. I examined some the individual frames that are half-face half-body and perhaps the face is a little darker but it seems a bit more in the final image (with some global exposure adjustments + modest vibrance + clarity boost). My other shot, File:Palace of Westminster from the dome on Methodist Central Hall.jpg, doesn't show a darker face, though the sun is shining on Big Ben in that photo. The clouds were moving across the sky, possibly altering the scene during the few minutes it took to capture all these frames. That other photo was taken just 11 minutes earlier, with quite different lighting. -- Colin (talk) 20:40, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Thanks RTA but unfortunately in Rome if you leave a tripod in a church that seems to have gone out a gun and I have to hurry before it gets security, though maybe that lents so I would have a lens to 2000 dollars and a Reflex to 300 dollars Face-grin.svg --LivioAndronico talk 08:57, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • What do you mean about a tripod? They are not friendly towards photographers with tripods? I occasionally have that problem but most of the time it's fine in the UK (and also fine from my experiences in Lithuania, Latvia and France). I don't think a tilt-shift lens will really solve the problem that much though. Even if you use tilt-shift, you usually will not get the perspective correction perfectly adjusted (it's not always easy to see when it is correct in the viewfinder), and will still need to make a minor adjustment in Photoshop afterwards. Diliff (talk) 13:22, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Diliff I write what is reported on a photography site: For the City of Rome a tripod is occupation of public land. Such employment must be authorized specifically for that place and that time. On a par with a crew that has to turn the scenes for a movie.You can get around the ban by placing the tripod on benches or on the rubbish bins.Also buildings or historic fountains eg. the Fountain of Dioscuri (Piazza del Quirinale) try to come closer with a tripod, even at night. A free hand whenever we want, but with no tripod.Then it's different if you fail to establish a dialogue with the representative of the forces before checkout which, as our equipment is really a camera, allow a few moments of recovery.--LivioAndronico talk 14:25, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Diliff Did you saw the first version? [1], this you can easily correct with the T&S lens, tilting you could fix the perspective, and actually the lack of the floor in the picture could also be fixed by shifting creating a panoramic photo, of course it's a trick lens, and expensive one, but if you have the money, and take a lot of building photos... -- RTA 18:11, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Yes, but there is nothing that a tilt-shift lens can do (perspective-wise, that is) that can't be fixed equally with software... As long as the shift is not extreme, there is no significant advantage to a tilt-shift lens for this purpose. A tilt-shift lens can actually shift the focal plane too, which is something that software cannot do, but that is not a factor in photography like this. Diliff (talk) 19:05, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • True, but in software you will lose some resolution, creating a smaller picture, nothing to worry about if you will not print... I was kidding when a suggest t&s lens, because that could solve the issue, but is ridiculous expansive, specially comparing cam+lens used here "D3200 with 18-55mm" ~450 USD versus ~2000 USD just for lens... And shift the focal plane, for me, is the only reason to have one of these. :D -- RTA 19:41, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment. I think it's unfortunate that you weren't able to capture any of the floor. Currently, it's hard to know if the camera viewpoint was only just above the floor, or at head-height. Diliff (talk) 13:22, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

I know Diliff but unfortunately my lens from that distance takes only that portion and then I had to "lock" the tourists. In addition, the pope was coming and there was security everywhere.Thanks for your opinion anyway --LivioAndronico talk 14:28, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
You should consider shooting panoramas. ;-) Then you are not so restricted by your lens angle of view. But yes, I understand why you would use this framing if there were distracting tourists in view. Better to take the photo when security is much less strict though. Perhaps you could revisit sometime? Diliff (talk) 19:03, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Totally agree... :P -- RTA 19:41, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose According to the EXIF this was shot at f/14, yet the DoF is extremely shallow. It appears artificially (and poorly) blurred or else it was taken with extremely poor focus. Compare to this image which is technically superior. -- Ram-Man 03:04, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment That comparison is a bit unfair. Your "superior" favorite has over four times lower resolution with no EXIF data at all. The Orchid on my image was pretty small, so I had to get very close to take full portrait and therefore DOF was shallower than usual. But calling it artificially and poorly blurred is imho too harsh. --Ivar (talk) 06:26, 21 January 2015 (UTC). And that's not even important, that this species grows only in few (less than 10) places in my country and I had to hike in the Bog to find it in the perfect evening light. --Ivar (talk) 06:38, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
      • My apologies for the poor comparison. What I meant was this: the other image shows superior depth of field and better subject sharpness while still having a blurred background. Was this retouched? It should be declared if it was and why were the flower petals and stalk blurred (bad masking?)? But if it was not blurred, then at f/14 the focus and sharpness should be on par with the other image. Something does not add up here. And FWIW, I wouldn't support the example image as a FP. -- Ram-Man 12:31, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support It was in my intentions to support anyway this nomination (colors, details, composition, all work for me). But I rather agree with Ivar, the quality of the Ivar's image is far much better in all points. The exemple shown by Ram-Man is certainly downssampled, and even so downsampled that we can judge correctly about the DOF, and the quality is so poor that I'm not able to say correctly what is in really in focus. Some parts are also a bit overexposed. -- ChristianFerrer 07:45, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
    • The out-of-focus/blurred petals on this image are visible at thumbnail size. It's not an issue of downsampling. The other image shows that there was no reason for this image to have out-of-focus petals. -- Ram-Man 12:34, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --Code (talk) 09:06, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. But as a user recently switched from a compact camera to a DSLR, I understand what Ram-Man stated above. It is very difficult to get reasonable DOF at 100mm if we are at closest subject distance. So we have two choices; increase the subject distance and crop the image, or use a longer lens. Choice two is expensive. Jee 03:28, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

First there are the blown clouds at the right, which tip you off that, whatever else might have looked right at the time of the shutter falling, the sun was too close to that side. Second, there seems to have been a fair degree of processing and sharpening done, evident from the ridgeline and sea in the center. That might not have been a problem except it seems to have been done to compensate for shooting a landscape like this at f/8, rather than the usual landscape sweet spot of f/11–16. Was there some reason for that aperture setting? Because I think this deserves more, and shooting with a narrower f/stop might have eliminated the need to work on it afterwards.

Funny: some would prefer a more narrow crop, others prefer the opposite. I guess I have found a pretty good compromise :-) --Wladyslaw (talk) 21:27, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
Needless to say that compositional issues will always be a matter of taste. That’s why we do majority votings here, often showing divided opinions. This person hovering in the air is obviously jumping from? over? anything, and I prefer to see this anything in the image to get a full impression of the action going on, as in images like this for example. Others want to see the person isolated, flying through space – that’s a different image with different intention (and in that case, the twigs are distracting, you’d need nothing but blue sky around). Looking for compromises often results in unclear compositions :-) --Kreuzschnabel 09:04, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Apparently not unclear for the majority. I think the figure of the boarder is clear and ästhetic so that a concentration on this is justified. --Wladyslaw (talk) 14:09, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Whoa, that takes quite some time to render in Firefox – looks like you put a lot of work into this! One thing I noticed is that the blue dots (eyes?) turn into very small black dots if rendered in Firefox. Also, the W3C validator finds some errors concerning re-used IDs. Apart from that: Very nice work imho, though that sheer mass of text somehow distracts from the graphics. Have you thought about a plain numbered version? That would remove some of the clutter and make the whole thing language-neutral at the same time. --El Grafo (talk) 14:37, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
I considered a numbered version, but ironically, as the numbers increase it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of which number corresponds to which anatomical part! I could reduce the number of parts mentioned, but the parts mentioned here are a consistent list of those usually covered in the anatomical literature on the animal (while still leaving out many of the more obscure parts, if you can imagine!). As an SVG, it should be translatable into other languages fairly easily (which is supposed to be one of the great things about the SVG format, yes? Though it seems it is seldom enough actually done...). Also, heads-up: image now passes SVG validation! Don't know why I didn't take care of this before now. Lastly, have fixed the issue with the eyes turning out very small and black. Now they should all appear large and blue, as intended. -KDS4444 (talk) 09:44, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
OK, I can see your point. The blue circles are still black dots in my Firefox 32.0, but I just noticed that it also somehow manages to render DejaVuSans as a serif font, so that's not unlikely to be my browser's fault. → Symbol support vote.svg Support --El Grafo (talk) 12:47, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I think that the circumstances and excellent subject/framing allow the lack of sharpness, particularly on one wing, to be forgiven. However, there's something odd about the picture. The Nikon D2X is a 12MP camera and this is a 17.3MP image. Plus it is in 4:3 format rather than 3:2 native format, so would have been cropped (never mind any cropping necessary to achieve the good framing here). This suggests the image has been considerably upscaled. I suggest reviewers downsample this to around 6MP for judging. Alternatively, perhaps knows from where the original non-upscaled version might be obtained? And does this upscaling issue affect other images retrieved from that source? -- Colin (talk) 10:36, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
