Les règles des Propositions d'images remarquables ont changé.
Conformément aux règles générales, une image est promue avec 7 (sept) votes "support" ou plus (et un ratio de 2/1 de # supports/opposes) et le nombre de nominations actives par utilisateur est limité à 2 (deux)
Désormais, seuls peuvent voter les membres inscrits depuis plus de 10 jours ayant procédé à au moins 50 interventions dans "Commons"

Cette page recense les images qui sont proposées pour être affichées dans les Images remarquables. Notez qu'il ne s'agit pas de la même chose que l'image du jour ou que les images de qualité.

Les archives des votes précédents se trouvent sur cette page.

Il existe également une liste chronologique des images remarquables.

Procédure[edit]

Conseils avant de proposer une image[edit]

partie en cours de traduction depuis la version anglaise, votre avis est le bienvenu.
Lisez entièrement le guide avant de commencer
Quelques règles informelles à retenir avant de proposer une image (les termes en italiques sont la traduction anglaise des termes).

  • Définition (display resolution) : les images de Commons peuvent être utilisées sur d'autres supports qu'un écran d'ordinateur, par exemple pour être imprimées ou vues à très haute résolution. Il est important que les images proposées aient la plus haute résolution possible. Au moins 2 millions de pixels (par ex. 2000 x 1000) semble raisonnable à présent. Les images de définition inférieure sont systématiquement rejetées sauf s'il y a une bonne raison.
  • Mise au point (focus) : tous les objets importants de l'image devraient être nets. Dans l'idéal les objets non primordiaux sont nets.
  • Avant-plan et arrière-plan (background and foreground): ils peuvent être dérangeants. Le sujet principal ne devrait pas être caché par le premier plan, ni se confondre avec l'arrière-plan.
  • Qualité générale (general quality) : Les images proposées devraient avoir une très haute qualité technique.
  • Une retouche (digital manipulations) ne doit pas tromper l'observateur. La correction de quelques défauts dans l'image est acceptée pour autant que ce soit limité, bien fait, et non pour tromper. Les retouches courantes sont le recadrage, la correction de la perspective, de netteté, des couleurs ou de l'exposition. Des manipulations plus importantes, tels quel l'élimination d'éléments dans l'arrière plan, doivent être décrites dans la description de l'image, par le biais du modèle {{RetouchedPicture}}. Les retouches non décrites ou mal décrites qui transformeraient le sujet sont inacceptables.
  • Utilité (value) : notre but principal est de présenter des images utiles et précieuses. Les images devraient ainsi être spéciales d'une façon ou d'une autre, donc, entre autres :
    • La plupart des coucher de soleil sont beaux, et la plupart ne sont pas différents des autres existant déjà.
    • Les photos de nuit sont souvent belles mais davantage de détails sont visibles de jour.
    • "Beau" ne veut pas dire "utile".

Au niveau technique, nous avons l'exposition, la composition, le mouvement et la profondeur du champ.

  • L'exposition (exposure) est l'obturation du diaphragme qui modifie la luminosité (brightness) pour rendre avec qualité les ombres et les lumières au sein de l'image. Le manque d'ombres dans le détail n'est pas nécessairement négatif, cela peut être un effet désiré.
  • La composition (composition) est l'arrangement des éléments dans l'image. La "Règle de trois" est un bon guide pour la composition, c'est un héritage des écoles de peintures. L'idée est de diviser l'image par deux lignes horizontales et deux lignes verticales, nous avons donc trois parties dans chaque sens. L'objet ne doit pas forcément être centré. Les sujets intéressants doivent êtres placés aux 4 croisements des lignes. L'horizon ne doit jamais être mis au milieu, car il couperait l'image en deux. L'idée principale ici est de rendre l'image dynamique.
  • Netteté (sharpness) renvoie à la manière dont les mouvements sont représentés dans l'image. Ils peuvent être nets ou flous. Ils ne sont pas mieux l'un que l'autre, cela dépend de l'intention du photographe. L'impression de mouvement dépend des différents objets de l'image. Par exemple, photographier une voiture de course qui apparaît nette par rapport à l'arrière plan ne donne pas une idée de la vitesse. Il faudrait en fait que la voiture soit représentée nette, mais avec un arrière plan flou, créant ainsi le mouvement. D'un autre coté, représenter le saut d'un joueur de basket net avec le reste de l'image flou, en raison de la nature peu habituelle de la photo, lui conférerait de l'intérêt.
  • La profondeur de champ (depth of field or DOF) renvoie à la zone de mise au point devant et au delà du sujet principal. La profondeur de champ est choisie en fonction des besoins spécifiques à chaque image. Une profondeur grande ou petite peu améliorer ou dégrader la qualité de l'image. Une faible profondeur de champ peu attirer l'attention sur le sujet principal, en le séparant de son environnement. Le lentilles à petite distance focale (grand angle) ont une grande profondeur de champ, et vice versa, les lentilles à grande distance focale (petite ouverture) ont une petite profondeur de champ.

Proposition[edit]

Si vous pensez avoir trouvé ou créé une image qui puisse être considérée comme parmi les meilleures de Commons, avec une description et une licence appropriée, copiez le nom de l'image dans la boîte ci-dessous (en incluant le préfixe File:), après le texte déjà présent :


Après cela, vous devrez insérer un lien vers la page que vous venez de créer en haut de Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list.

Vote[edit]

A l'exclusion de tous autres, vous pouvez utiliser les modèles suivants:

  • {{Pour}} (Symbol support vote.svg Support),
  • {{Contre}} (Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose),

Ainsi que :

  • {{Neutre}} (Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral),
  • {{Comment}} (Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment),
  • {{Info}} (Pictogram voting info.svg Info),
  • {{Question}} (Pictogram voting question.svg Question).


IMPORTANT: veuillez notamment NE PAS UTILISER les modèles {{weak support}} (GA candidate.svg Weak support) ni {{weak oppose}} (BA candidate.svg Weak oppose), ils ne sont pas reconnus par le robot, et votre vote serait considéré comme non valide.

Règles[edit]

Règles générales[edit]

  1. Le résultat est donné 9 jours après la proposition (voir le planning en bas de page). Les votes ajoutés le 10e jour ou après ne sont pas décomptés.
  2. Les utilisateurs non-enregistrés peuvent proposer des images, faire des commentaires, mais pas voter.
  3. La proposition elle-même ne compte pas comme un vote : il faut l'ajouter explicitement.
  4. Le proposant peut retirer une image à tout moment, en écrivant I withdraw my nomination.
  5. Souvenez-vous que le but de Wikimedia Commons est une bibliothèque pour tous les projets Wikimedia, y compris des projets futurs ; les images n'ont pas à être utiles uniquement pour Wikipédia.
  6. Les images peuvent être retirées de la liste dès le 5e jour si elles n'ont reçu aucun vote "pour".
  7. Soyez attentifs et très sélectifs dans les choix que vous faites, car il ne peut y avoir que deux propositions actives par proposant. Toute proposition supplémentaire sera rejetée sans examen.
  8. Seulement 2 nominations actives par même utilisateur (qui est, en nomination sous "review" et non encore close) sont autorisées. Le principal but de cette mesure est de contribuer à une meilleure qualité moyenne des nominations, par un choix plus judicieux des photos présentes en nominations.

Règles de promotion[edit]

L'image candidate devient une image remarquable si elle remplit les conditions suivantes :

  1. Une licence appropriée (bien sûr !)
  2. Au moins sept votes "pour".
  3. un ratio de 2/1 de votes "pour"/"contre".
  4. Deux versions différentes de la même image ne peuvent pas être promues en même temps, mais seulement celle avec le plus grand score.

Contestations[edit]

Avec le temps, les critères d'évaluation évoluent, et il peut être décidé qu'une image qui était auparavant assez bonne pour être dans la liste ne peut plus l'être.

Pour qu'une image soit déchue, il faut qu'une majorité de 2/3 avec au moins 5 votes accepte de retirer l'image, autrement elle reste "remarquable". Pour voter, utiliser les modèles {{Keep}} (Symbol keep vote.svg Keep : mérite de rester "remarquable") ou {{Delist}} (Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist  : ne mérite plus le label).

Pour contester une image, copiez son nom avec le préfixe dans la boîte ci-dessous à la suite du texte déjà présent :


Vous devriez inclure les informations suivantes :

  • Informations sur l'origine de l'image (créateur, importateur).
  • Un lien vers le vote d'origine.
  • La raison pour laquelle vous contestez le label, avec votre signature.

Insérez ensuite un lien en haut de Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal.

Boris Kustodiyev. Maslenitsa. 1919. Oil on canvas. 71x98 sm
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Boris Kustodiyev. Maslenitsa. 1919. Oil on canvas. 71x98 sm. Maslenitsa (Maślenica, also known as Butter Week, Crepe week, or Cheesefare Week), is an Eastern Slavic religious and folk holiday. It is celebrated during the last week before Great Lent—that is, the eighth week before Eastern Orthodox Pascha (Easter). Maslenitsa corresponds to the Western Christian Carnival, except that Orthodox Lent begins on a Monday instead of a Wednesday, and the Orthodox date of Easter can differ greatly from the Western Christian date.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This 1576 old map of Paris. Of course my city is far much bigger now, but this very high size and very detailed version shows streets which are still existing with the same name. It is an excellent and useful document, with many little interesting details about disappeared monuments or buildings (the Temple, la Bastille, Montfaucon (the hanging place), the islands etc. Nice and high value IMO.-- Jebulon (talk) 19:20, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very nice document, good restoration. Yann (talk) 20:14, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Great detail, interesting. Any idea why it is not oriented towards north? Is is just due to the shape of the city or the Seine? --DXR (talk) 16:25, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
    • Thank you. No idea at all. I just notice that all original maps of the 16th-century are so. Probably it was not a mandatory at that time. Anyway, we have a "rose-compass" indicating the north (and the east: Jerusalem). @ Alvesgaspar, any help, please ?--Jebulon (talk) 17:18, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
      • Not only Paris.--Paris 16 (talk) 19:01, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
      • It was always a common practise, even today, to orient the urban planes according to the conveniences (that is, the shape of the area, the orientation of the main streets or rivers, etc.). Concerning the larger scale maps and charts it took some time to adopt the north-up standard. For example, in all nautical charts before the Mercator projection was adopted, the geographic names of the places along the coast were written perpendicular to it, thus rotating according to the orientation of the coastlines. Those charts did not have a well-defined orientation. During the Middle Ages, and nearly up to the fifteenth century, the world maps were often oriented to East (i.e. to "Orient", were the Earthly Paradise was located) or to South. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:15, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
        • Thanks! That's quite interesting, but of course it makes sense, especially for nautic purposes. --DXR (talk) 19:30, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
          • Excellent ! I love when "Commons" is like that !--Jebulon (talk) 19:58, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
          • This is indeed the best of Commons: what we learn (including about ourselves and human behaviour in general) and what we help others to learn. Alvesgaspar (talk) 20:31, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

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)
      • Sorry, Poco is right, but not the picture (please see note). And I don't think it is pixel peeping, as I noticed this even in thumbnail...--Jebulon (talk) 15:36, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
        • I don't think you could have noticed the lean in the thumbnail though, realistically. As I said, I measured it as 0.3 degrees (and I double checked again in the area you noted). This translates to a total shift of 2 pixels from one side of the building to the other at thumbnail size. Unless you're looking at the thumbnail with a magnifying glass and pixel peeping the thumbnail, I honestly don't think you could perceive that lean. I'm not denying that the lean exists (it does), it's just too small to be perceptible in the thumbnail IMO. I still believe that what you are most likely seeing is the illusion caused by the off-centre composition. I'm happy to correct the shift though. I've uploaded a new image over the top.

By 'this', do you mean the lean that Jebulon was referring to, or do you mean the image itself?

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Actually, I was wondering if the verticals had been slightly corrected already. I'm trying to understand the crunchy pixels at the top of the tower, which look like they have been sharpened and then scaled up in size. Since this is an obviously "looking up" view, uncorrected verticals may be best. The sky seems a bit posterised and/or noisy for iso 100. -- Colin (talk) 19:29, 19 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 uncorrected one looks less distorted (the first had the near corner warped oddly), though there is strong vertical perspective. I think trying to "correct" vertical perspective that is as strong as this is a mistake -- better to accept it or take the photo from further back. The second one, looking up, is quite graphically strong and the sky is smoother (less magnified anyway). I'm not sure why it isn't quite working for me. Perhaps the fence is just too close and dominant, or the lack of any ground-level makes it disconnected? -- Colin (talk) 08:36, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

It normally appears as more of a yellowy-orange in photos at night. Obviously this is affected by white balance choice but I've never seen it looking such a bright orange colour. This image is more of the colour that I would expect to see. Diliff (talk) 03:08, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
    David, you are probably right. I didn't touch the WB but comparing it to others it was in fact too much orange there. I have uploaded a new version for the original nomination. The sky looks also better now. Poco2 14:31, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
    The new version is an improvement. The green area at the top of the tower is also much more natural looking. It looked very yellow in the old version and this is definitely not right. It should be green. Diliff (talk) 17:17, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Among these two, I prefer this one. Though the tower clock appears more "natural" on the uncorrected alternative, it just looks too straightforward to me. I just don’t like the pixelisation visible in all details from the clock dials on upwards. --Kreuzschnabel 07:14, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

It's slightly lower resolution horizontally as the projection has been changed, the contrast seems a bit flat, the edges have been cropped unnecessarily and the white balance is too warm. I followed the image back to its creation on the German FPC nomination and I'm not entirely sure what the objections to the original image were. It could be a poor translation from German using Google Translate, but it didn't make a lot of sense to me. Diliff (talk) 14:09, 18 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)

    • 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)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Boris Kustodiyev. Maslenitsa. 1919. Oil on canvas. 71x98 sm. Maslenitsa (Maślenica, also known as Butter Week, Crepe week, or Cheesefare Week), is an Eastern Slavic religious and folk holiday. It is celebrated during the last week before Great Lent—that is, the eighth week before Eastern Orthodox Pascha (Easter). Maslenitsa corresponds to the Western Christian Carnival, except that Orthodox Lent begins on a Monday instead of a Wednesday, and the Orthodox date of Easter can differ greatly from the Western Christian date.

      • Not only Paris.--Paris 16 (talk) 19:01, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
      • It was always a common practise, even today, to orient the urban planes according to the conveniences (that is, the shape of the area, the orientation of the main streets or rivers, etc.). Concerning the larger scale maps and charts it took some time to adopt the north-up standard. For example, in all nautical charts before the Mercator projection was adopted, the geographic names of the places along the coast were written perpendicular to it, thus rotating according to the orientation of the coastlines. Those charts did not have a well-defined orientation. During the Middle Ages, and nearly up to the fifteenth century, the world maps were often oriented to East (i.e. to "Orient", were the Earthly Paradise was located) or to South. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:15, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks a lot for the nomination AmaryllisGardener! To be honest I am not convinced, either, that this could be a FP. 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)
      • Sorry, Poco is right, but not the picture (please see note). And I don't think it is pixel peeping, as I noticed this even in thumbnail...--Jebulon (talk) 15:36, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
        • I don't think you could have noticed the lean in the thumbnail though, realistically. As I said, I measured it as 0.3 degrees (and I double checked again in the area you noted). This translates to a total shift of 2 pixels from one side of the building to the other at thumbnail size. Unless you're looking at the thumbnail with a magnifying glass and pixel peeping the thumbnail, I honestly don't think you could perceive that lean. I'm not denying that the lean exists (it does), it's just too small to be perceptible in the thumbnail IMO. I still believe that what you are most likely seeing is the illusion caused by the off-centre composition. I'm happy to correct the shift though. I've uploaded a new image over the top.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Actually, I was wondering if the verticals had been slightly corrected already. I'm trying to understand the crunchy pixels at the top of the tower, which look like they have been sharpened and then scaled up in size. Since this is an obviously "looking up" view, uncorrected verticals may be best. The sky seems a bit posterised and/or noisy for iso 100. -- Colin (talk) 19:29, 19 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 uncorrected one looks less distorted (the first had the near corner warped oddly), though there is strong vertical perspective. I think trying to "correct" vertical perspective that is as strong as this is a mistake -- better to accept it or take the photo from further back. The second one, looking up, is quite graphically strong and the sky is smoother (less magnified anyway). I'm not sure why it isn't quite working for me. Perhaps the fence is just too close and dominant, or the lack of any ground-level makes it disconnected? -- Colin (talk) 08:36, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

It normally appears as more of a yellowy-orange in photos at night. Obviously this is affected by white balance choice but I've never seen it looking such a bright orange colour. This image is more of the colour that I would expect to see. Diliff (talk) 03:08, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
    David, you are probably right. I didn't touch the WB but comparing it to others it was in fact too much orange there. I have uploaded a new version for the original nomination. The sky looks also better now. Poco2 14:31, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
    The new version is an improvement. The green area at the top of the tower is also much more natural looking. It looked very yellow in the old version and this is definitely not right. It should be green. Diliff (talk) 17:17, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Among these two, I prefer this one. Though the tower clock appears more "natural" on the uncorrected alternative, it just looks too straightforward to me. I just don’t like the pixelisation visible in all details from the clock dials on upwards. --Kreuzschnabel 07:14, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

I think over processing is acceptable provided it does not change the reality, in this case, an incredible sunset. --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 10:14, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

I think you need a vacation to the Caribbean like Isla Margarita (My home), there usually noticed colors as well. I am at your services if this actually happens. --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 12:37, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting question.svg Question ISO 100, why noise reduction? maybe badpractice o it is intencionally to generate this painting effect?. --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 14:52, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'm sorry but I don't see anything featurable here. Composition is not attractive imo, the wolf is too much at the lower left corner and the pigeon is centered. Background is distracting. At full size the image shows a strange processing, or jpeg artifacts or something which spoils quality. Not really encyclopaedic either, this is not the best way to show the wolf, because there's a pigeon on it. --Kadellar (talk) 16:30, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
