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)

It's rather paradox. You think the light is harsh, Alchemist means the church is partially in shadow. I think the light shows the cathedral in a good and interessting way. --Wladyslaw (talk) 06:49, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
  • 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.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - This is a very sharp, clear photograph. But I don't know if the composition is best – I don't see the purpose of all the empty space on the left/upper-left. I suspect that a more dramatic photograph of this is possible under different lighting conditions. --Kbh3rdtalk 02:54, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
    • The subject has a sparse, minimalist design. I see how perhaps the composition with all that empty space mimics that. The color of the sky works well with the luster of the metal, also. --Kbh3rdtalk 05:14, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

I am perfectly calm, don’t worry (it takes much more to upset me). My "snotty commentary", as you called it (not entirely unsnottily, if I may say so), was a reaction on your statement "The reson for nomination is because I think this is a very uncommon and interessting tower". I agree – it certainly is. But that does not automatically make any picture of it as uncommon and interesting, too. We feature uncommon and interesting pictures here, and not necessarily pictures of uncommon and interesting things. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 20:03, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
For sure an interessting object makes not always an interessting picture. It would be much more helpfull if you could argue why. --Wladyslaw (talk) 04:39, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
It’s not always easy to say why a picture does not rise fascination. There’s nothing really wrong with this picture, it’s just not looking that special. Composition is one issue as already touched by others: too much sky, too little tower. Anyway, I am not obliged to justify my vote. I just answered to your reason for nominating being the uncommonness of the object, instead of the picture. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 07:46, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Tuxyso: and @Julian Herzog:: Thanks for taking your time to scrutinize my nomination. Concerning the two spots, I have checked with other shots taken in fast sequence, and I found that the largest one was an OOF mast and the other one is a small could (which looks a little like a bird). I have now cloned them out and updated the file. Concerning the processing of the photo and your comments about possibly too aggressive noise reduction, I have now documented the editing process in great details on the file page. I always do noise reduction in the raw converter, and here the default settings are one for luminance and two for the chroma noise (range 0-20 for both settings). I have incremented the chroma noise reduction by one to three in the oploaded file. I still would not call that aggressive at all though as the maximum is 20. Initally I had problems with blown areas on the white sun-exposed landing gear and a dark "belly" of the aircraft as it is in shadows in early afternoon strong sunlight. To counteract that I have gone down 1/3 in exposure, reduced highlights almost as much as possible and boosted shadows as much as possible in the raw editor prior to jpeg conversion to get out the details of the belly. Since it is ISO 100, this did not lead to too much noise in the shadows. I think that a modest DOF combined with a bit of motion blur from panning (not much though as the shutter speed of 1/400 s is still relatively fast) gives the washed out effect of the foreground and a little less pronounced in the background.. For me it helps separate the main subject from background and foreground. And it also gives a feeling of action. --Slaunger (talk) 15:27, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Probably you can try selective (only for shadow parts) noise reduction techniques for future shots. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:37, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
      • @Tuxyso: Thanks for the suggestion. I have a slight practical problem with doing selective noise reduction using my existing tools. The NR in my Canon raw converter works only on the entire image, and for my postprocessing editing tools (GIMP) there are no tools out of the box (as far as I know), except for selective Gaussian blur, which is a too primitive algorithm. I have read there are some GIMP plugins around for doing more sophisticated NR, e.g., separating between luminance and chroma NR using sophisticated algorithm. It appears they are not so easy to use, but maybe I should just 'bite the bullet' and learn how to use them. --Slaunger (talk) 15:30, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
        • The easiest and best solution for selective NR I found yet is the tool Dfine from the Nik-Tools (no surreptitious advertising, I really like it). By manual setting of control points you can include / exclude similiar image areas from noise reduction. Example: Without selective NR this photo would have excessive noise on the sky or the main motive had not been sharp. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:32, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
          • Thanks for the advice, Tuxyso. It is a very remarkable photo you are referencing to, and the tutorial was very instructive and impressive to see. I am currently considering a significant upgrade of my editing tools and gear, and this is valuable input in my considerations. --Slaunger (talk) 16:17, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Much bigger than the other FP of it I'm aware of ;) So could have been a nice replacement (I would have seen no reason to keep both which are similar). But the sharpness issue largely nullifies this improvement. Composition wise I don't see why the mount is not centered (the empty space on the right adds no value). Not a fan of the scaffoldings either. - Benh (talk) 09:37, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    • @Benh: Compared to the other file, level of detail is close to equal - yes. "Improvements" could be: less overexposed areas (thanks to exposure bracketing), more pleasing colors, more interesting sky (which gives the picture depth), and corrected perspective (thanks to Tuxyso) which the other file has not. I like the composition as it is, because a) I like the blurred clouds b) the composition doesn't look too centered and c) the result is a nice 16:9 picture :-) The scaffoldings are a pity but they simply are there BeBo86 (talk) 13:09, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I wonder why the image wasn't taken a bit earlier. Were the lights only switched on by then? Personally, I would like more light, both in the sky and on the darker parts of the rock. --DXR (talk) 13:42, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This was also because of tourists crossing the bridge (and the picture). This was the first moment with no tourist crossing my view (but you can see bicycles with lights coming from the left ;-) The alternative was to shoot from the handrail on the other side of the bridge, but on this side there was kind of a dam which didn't look good in the foreground (currently there's a building site!). BeBo86 (talk) 15:02, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Okay, even though I would probably have tried to combine shots to remove the tourists but fair enough. Looking at suncalc, the sun would have been quite a bit to the left so that would have worked, probably. BTW: Imho it's not good to remove the EXIF with a later upload. --DXR (talk) 15:28, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • just to mention I faced the exact same problem on my own shot (to a lesser extent, it was taken at winter time). Mont Saint-Michel is one of the busiest site in France. About using several shots to remove people, I'm a bit skeptical ; light decreases fast. Not sure it would be so easy to used empty parts from other pictures (possible to adjust exposure but depending on the number of people to erase, could drive one crazy ;) ). - Benh (talk) 22:14, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, for sure it isn't easy, but we are talking FP here, and if it takes a few hours in PS, it does. But granted, that's a bit academic now. --DXR (talk) 23:24, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I like the photo as it is (also the decentered composition with the links from the street going through the picture). Level of detail / sharpness is sufficient for me. Regarding the shooting time: I guess the sun sets at the very left part of the photo. If BeBo86 had shot earlier there had been problems with backlight. --Tuxyso (talk) 15:05, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
the sun is much farther on the left, so "backlight" is not really an issue here. The people, on the other hand... - Benh (talk) 22:18, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Weak Symbol support vote.svg Support. I like the dark blueish background and the lightning is good - a few places some minor problems with exposure control, but is is quite difficult to avoid in such kinds of photos. I especially like the mood of the lower buildings to the right. My biggest problem is the per-pixel quality for a 3.6 Mpixel image. I would have opposed if it was daylight. At these conditions it is harder, and for me it just passes the FP bar quality-wise.--Slaunger (talk) 20:29, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info @Slaunger: - yes you are right, the building close to the littoral tower is a pity. However, I did not want to use higher f-stop, because as a result exposure time would have been extended -> this was a no-go, because it was quite windy and my tripod was not as stable as it should have been ;-) But I think the details of the main subject - the abbey - are well focused. Thanks for helping with categories!!!
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I don't think the white balance is set correctly, it seems too greeny yellow tinted to me. The middle is reasonably sharp but it becomes quite soft around the edges. There would be no benefit in using a smaller aperture (higher f-stop) as it would have just made the image less sharp. Most lenses are sharpest at around f/8 and start to become diffraction limited from f/11 onwards (with an APS-C sensor such as the NEX-5N's). I think the issue with the softness is primarily down to the lens and not the settings. Diliff (talk) 10:41, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Diliff: is downsampling an option? BeBo86 (talk) 11:06, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Well it's an option but not a good one because it doesn't fix the problem, it just hides it. I know we can sometimes be critical of an image's sharpness at 100% and be less critical of a downsampled image that has the same real level of detail, but I don't think that downsampling is the right way to think about the problem. Diliff (talk) 11:58, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
      • I agree. That's why I did no downsampling. I can not change the behavior of my lenses. If 1000€ equipment is not sufficient for FP (at least in this case) I have to live with that ;-) BeBo86 (talk) 12:14, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
      • I agree with the comments of Diliff. Don't go down the downsampling path - it does not lead to real improvements, but often loss of information. --Slaunger (talk) 17:40, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
        • Downsampling does not necessarily yield loss of information, as most of the data in picture is made up from interpolation (which is why Slaunger said "often loss", but even this is exaggerated IMO). Moderate downsampling probably won't remove actual data in many many cases. Anyone familiar with image or signal processing to help sort this out? In any way, I don't think it solves the pb either. If someone judges an image by its sharpness when viewed at 100%, then she/he is the problem. - Benh (talk) 09:49, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
          • I'm not going to go off-topic (again) in detail on this but I disagree with Benh. The complex "interpolation" involved in Bayer-sensor demosaicing does not mean downsizing is a "no loss" image improvement technique. And photography isn't a data capture activity anyway (consider bokeh, or the pleasing grain in certain b&w films). -- Colin (talk) 09:54, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

    • Thanks for the review, Kadellar. My problem with the wider view is that the interesting city and background around the church distracts from the main motive - the church. From a documentary perspective I still think the nomination at hand is better suited than a wider view. The photo here shows St. James's Church in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the wider view would be a different motive, e.g. View over Rothenburg with St. James's Church and surronding landscape. Probably I can do a further candidature with the wider view but I think the motives are too similar and some reviewers would protest against a nomination. Any opinions / suggestions on that topic? --Tuxyso (talk) 13:09, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • This image is better, for example, for the article about the church, because it shows only the church, as you say (and because we use small sizes at the articles). However, as a picture, the wider view is more impressive. I wouldn't nominate the other, it would be almost "delist and replace". --Kadellar (talk) 13:17, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

    • The tilted horizon caused by the photographer's aircraft banking to the right and the contrail of one F-15 crossing up and over the other's path both make this a very dynamic photograph. You can practically feel the velocity as the nearer pair of aircraft close in on the farther pair. If there's a rule that says horizons must be horizontal, remember that breaking rules can make for much more interesting composition. -- Kbh3rd (talk) 01:46, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

@Slaunger: this can be a focus's effect or not. User:ArionEstarArionEstar (talk) 20:22, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
@ArionEstar: I doubt it. My guess is, it is the result of a selective background blur in postprocessing (which is sensible for getting good bokeh) gone haywire. I doubt it is present in the raw file. I think it can be salvaged by reprocessing the raw file. --Slaunger (talk) 20:26, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment On several occasions I have encountered the same problem. I will try to solve the problem this weekend, however, it would be interesting for someone to show the way of how to solve it. Thanks --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 14:02, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
@Wilfredor: My method is very simple-minded, I just mask the background and apply a selective Gaussian blur of modest radius. I usually do not get any posterization from that method. If your raw is posterized, I have no idea how to solve that. (Is it?) --Slaunger (talk) 19:20, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Mixing in a little of the original noise should, in theory, fix all banding issues. I highly doubt that the RAW has banding, because banding doesn't exist if there is noise (which is why a little noise is a good thing and adds information), and a camera producing a RAW without any noise at all would be new to me. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 21:53, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
@Slaunger: Thanks for the comments, nice review Julian. I've been looking for different ways to solve the problem, however, add Gaussian blur is exactly what I did and what I think caused the posterization. I Rebuilded from RAW. I have added more information on this, please let me know if it is well --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 02:01, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
You new edit is better, although it still has a little pixelation. I usually find for photos taken with my camera, that if I use a pixel radius of 5 in the selective Gaussian blur, I normally avoid the banding effect. I actually just tried that out on your unaltered version below, and I ended up with banding at approximately the same level as in your new edit. Then I tried again with a radius of 3, and now the banding has gone and the background remains slightly noisy as mentioned by Julian. I can upload it over any of the version, if you would like to see it? You can just revert if 'no me gusta' :-) It is not revolutionary at all but something a little in between your two versions now, and it is close to (if not) nitpicking. --Slaunger (talk) 21:51, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
I just stroke my conditional oppose as the banding/pixelation has improved to a level, where I do not object to it. --Slaunger (talk) 21:55, 23 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)

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.

My "snotty commentary", as you called it (not entirely unsnottily, if I may say so), was a reaction on your statement "The reson for nomination is because I think this is a very uncommon and interessting tower". I agree – it certainly is. But that does not automatically make any picture of it as uncommon and interesting, too. We feature uncommon and interesting pictures here, and not necessarily pictures of uncommon and interesting things. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 20:03, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
For sure an interessting object makes not always an interessting picture. It would be much more helpfull if you could argue why. --Wladyslaw (talk) 04:39, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
It’s not always easy to say why a picture does not rise fascination. There’s nothing really wrong with this picture, it’s just not looking that special. Composition is one issue as already touched by others: too much sky, too little tower. Anyway, I am not obliged to justify my vote. I just answered to your reason for nominating being the uncommonness of the object, instead of the picture. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 07:46, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Very good shot. I also find that it looks like the noise reduction was very strong. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 09:06, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Tuxyso: and @Julian Herzog:: Thanks for taking your time to scrutinize my nomination. Concerning the two spots, I have checked with other shots taken in fast sequence, and I found that the largest one was an OOF mast and the other one is a small could (which looks a little like a bird). I have now cloned them out and updated the file. Concerning the processing of the photo and your comments about possibly too aggressive noise reduction, I have now documented the editing process in great details on the file page. I always do noise reduction in the raw converter, and here the default settings are one for luminance and two for the chroma noise (range 0-20 for both settings). I have incremented the chroma noise reduction by one to three in the oploaded file. I still would not call that aggressive at all though as the maximum is 20. Initally I had problems with blown areas on the white sun-exposed landing gear and a dark "belly" of the aircraft as it is in shadows in early afternoon strong sunlight. To counteract that I have gone down 1/3 in exposure, reduced highlights almost as much as possible and boosted shadows as much as possible in the raw editor prior to jpeg conversion to get out the details of the belly. Since it is ISO 100, this did not lead to too much noise in the shadows. I think that a modest DOF combined with a bit of motion blur from panning (not much though as the shutter speed of 1/400 s is still relatively fast) gives the washed out effect of the foreground and a little less pronounced in the background.. For me it helps separate the main subject from background and foreground. And it also gives a feeling of action. --Slaunger (talk) 15:27, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Probably you can try selective (only for shadow parts) noise reduction techniques for future shots. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:37, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
      • @Tuxyso: Thanks for the suggestion. I have a slight practical problem with doing selective noise reduction using my existing tools. The NR in my Canon raw converter works only on the entire image, and for my postprocessing editing tools (GIMP) there are no tools out of the box (as far as I know), except for selective Gaussian blur, which is a too primitive algorithm. I have read there are some GIMP plugins around for doing more sophisticated NR, e.g., separating between luminance and chroma NR using sophisticated algorithm. It appears they are not so easy to use, but maybe I should just 'bite the bullet' and learn how to use them. --Slaunger (talk) 15:30, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
        • The easiest and best solution for selective NR I found yet is the tool Dfine from the Nik-Tools (no surreptitious advertising, I really like it). By manual setting of control points you can include / exclude similiar image areas from noise reduction. Example: Without selective NR this photo would have excessive noise on the sky or the main motive had not been sharp. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:32, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
          • Thanks for the advice, Tuxyso. It is a very remarkable photo you are referencing to, and the tutorial was very instructive and impressive to see. I am currently considering a significant upgrade of my editing tools and gear, and this is valuable input in my considerations. --Slaunger (talk) 16:17, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

(Note: I have downsampled it a bit now, as a consequence of perspective correction.) Level of detail is comparable to the existing FP of Mont Saint-Michel BeBo86 (talk) 13:09, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

    • @Tuxyso: THANKS a lot and you are right!!! ✓ Done BeBo86 (talk) 13:09, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Much bigger than the other FP of it I'm aware of ;) So could have been a nice replacement (I would have seen no reason to keep both which are similar). But the sharpness issue largely nullifies this improvement. Composition wise I don't see why the mount is not centered (the empty space on the right adds no value). Not a fan of the scaffoldings either. - Benh (talk) 09:37, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    • @Benh: Compared to the other file, level of detail is close to equal - yes. "Improvements" could be: less overexposed areas (thanks to exposure bracketing), more pleasing colors, more interesting sky (which gives the picture depth), and corrected perspective (thanks to Tuxyso) which the other file has not. I like the composition as it is, because a) I like the blurred clouds b) the composition doesn't look too centered and c) the result is a nice 16:9 picture :-) The scaffoldings are a pity but they simply are there BeBo86 (talk) 13:09, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I wonder why the image wasn't taken a bit earlier. Were the lights only switched on by then? Personally, I would like more light, both in the sky and on the darker parts of the rock. --DXR (talk) 13:42, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This was also because of tourists crossing the bridge (and the picture). This was the first moment with no tourist crossing my view (but you can see bicycles with lights coming from the left ;-) The alternative was to shoot from the handrail on the other side of the bridge, but on this side there was kind of a dam which didn't look good in the foreground (currently there's a building site!). BeBo86 (talk) 15:02, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Okay, even though I would probably have tried to combine shots to remove the tourists but fair enough. Looking at suncalc, the sun would have been quite a bit to the left so that would have worked, probably. BTW: Imho it's not good to remove the EXIF with a later upload. --DXR (talk) 15:28, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • just to mention I faced the exact same problem on my own shot (to a lesser extent, it was taken at winter time). Mont Saint-Michel is one of the busiest site in France. About using several shots to remove people, I'm a bit skeptical ; light decreases fast. Not sure it would be so easy to used empty parts from other pictures (possible to adjust exposure but depending on the number of people to erase, could drive one crazy ;) ). - Benh (talk) 22:14, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, for sure it isn't easy, but we are talking FP here, and if it takes a few hours in PS, it does. But granted, that's a bit academic now. --DXR (talk) 23:24, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I like the photo as it is (also the decentered composition with the links from the street going through the picture). Level of detail / sharpness is sufficient for me. Regarding the shooting time: I guess the sun sets at the very left part of the photo. If BeBo86 had shot earlier there had been problems with backlight. --Tuxyso (talk) 15:05, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
the sun is much farther on the left, so "backlight" is not really an issue here. The people, on the other hand... - Benh (talk) 22:18, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Weak Symbol support vote.svg Support. I like the dark blueish background and the lightning is good - a few places some minor problems with exposure control, but is is quite difficult to avoid in such kinds of photos. I especially like the mood of the lower buildings to the right. My biggest problem is the per-pixel quality for a 3.6 Mpixel image. I would have opposed if it was daylight. At these conditions it is harder, and for me it just passes the FP bar quality-wise.--Slaunger (talk) 20:29, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, but per above. Yes, it is an iconic location and I understand the choice of time, but in my opinion the quality just is not good enough to be the best of commons --DXR (talk) 23:24, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The light is quite good, and I like the compositional aspect of the curved road leading to Mont Saint-Michel. However, I think the crop is a little too tight and the image appears a little soft in focus, especially on the buildings closer to the littoral water and at the edges of the photo. The FP bar for this type of photos is just a little larger in my opinion. I had a look at the file page, which was over-categorized. I believe I have fixed that, and also added a few categories of relevance. Still a good photo, but not quite FP for me, sorry. --Slaunger (talk) 18:15, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info @Slaunger: - yes you are right, the building close to the littoral tower is a pity. However, I did not want to use higher f-stop, because as a result exposure time would have been extended -> this was a no-go, because it was quite windy and my tripod was not as stable as it should have been ;-) But I think the details of the main subject - the abbey - are well focused. Thanks for helping with categories!!!
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I don't think the white balance is set correctly, it seems too greeny yellow tinted to me. The middle is reasonably sharp but it becomes quite soft around the edges. There would be no benefit in using a smaller aperture (higher f-stop) as it would have just made the image less sharp. Most lenses are sharpest at around f/8 and start to become diffraction limited from f/11 onwards (with an APS-C sensor such as the NEX-5N's). I think the issue with the softness is primarily down to the lens and not the settings. Diliff (talk) 10:41, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Diliff: is downsampling an option? BeBo86 (talk) 11:06, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Well it's an option but not a good one because it doesn't fix the problem, it just hides it. I know we can sometimes be critical of an image's sharpness at 100% and be less critical of a downsampled image that has the same real level of detail, but I don't think that downsampling is the right way to think about the problem. Diliff (talk) 11:58, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
      • I agree. That's why I did no downsampling. I can not change the behavior of my lenses. If 1000€ equipment is not sufficient for FP (at least in this case) I have to live with that ;-) BeBo86 (talk) 12:14, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
      • I agree with the comments of Diliff. Don't go down the downsampling path - it does not lead to real improvements, but often loss of information. --Slaunger (talk) 17:40, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
        • Downsampling does not necessarily yield loss of information, as most of the data in picture is made up from interpolation (which is why Slaunger said "often loss", but even this is exaggerated IMO). Moderate downsampling probably won't remove actual data in many many cases. Anyone familiar with image or signal processing to help sort this out? In any way, I don't think it solves the pb either. If someone judges an image by its sharpness when viewed at 100%, then she/he is the problem. - Benh (talk) 09:49, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
          • I'm not going to go off-topic (again) in detail on this but I disagree with Benh. The complex "interpolation" involved in Bayer-sensor demosaicing does not mean downsizing is a "no loss" image improvement technique. And photography isn't a data capture activity anyway (consider bokeh, or the pleasing grain in certain b&w films). -- Colin (talk) 09:54, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Dman41689 has voted support, but that is for an entirely different image, and that is very confusing.

Once you have withdrawn you are allowed to nominate the new picture and start out fresh. At the same time you will also comply with our policy Commons:Overwriting existing files. It is of course great if you have found the feedback contsructive and that this has given rise to the introduction of another candidate, which addresses the issues raised. --Slaunger (talk) 20:52, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
