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.

Merci d'inclure quelques mots expliquant pourquoi vous soutenez ou non la promotion de l'image, surtout si vous votez contre. N'oubliez pas de signer avec ~~~~.

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.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
Nuvola apps important yellow.svg
Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because GFDL 1.2 only is not accepted here. Sorry. Yann (talk) 23:23, 24 October 2014 (UTC) Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.

Mohiniyattam dancer Rekha Raju performing at XY theater would be appropriate. --El Grafo (talk) 14:30, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose 1. for size – a picture barely above the minimum requirement has to be very special for me to support. 2. The floor before her feet looks heavily cloned and softened/smeared. At the lower right of her, there’s a sharp piece among blurred ones. That does not work, sorry. Additionally, there’s considerable chromatic aberration in her hair decoration. While it’s a nice pic, IMHO it’s not among the very best Commons has to offer. --Kreuzschnabel 16:16, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

The Tower Bridge is a bascule and suspension bridge located in the center of London that crosses the River Thames. Its name is taken from the Tower of London, located nearby and has become an iconic symbol of London. The bridge was built between 1886 and 1894 and has a length of 244 m (800 feet) and the height of the towers is 65 m (213 feet). The 61 m (200 feet) long central span is split into two equal bascules than can be raised 86 degrees to allow the transit of ships. Otherwise the bridge is open to the traffic and to the pedestrians.

    • The sky, I can appreciate your opinion... I did push the contrast on the sky as bright overcast clouds tend to lose their definition in photography (as Kreuzschnabel mentioned) but I disagree that the grass is too green. I didn't adjust the saturation. Scotland is just very green in summer. :-) Diliff (talk) 21:36, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

File:Our Lady of the Gate of Dawn Interior During Service, Vilnius, Lithuania - Diliff.jpg
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Diliff - uploaded by Diliff - nominated by Diliff -- Diliff. As you can probably tell from this image, this chapel is very small (I was as far back as was physically possible, any further back and I would have fallen out the window!) and it was a challenge to capture it, both because of the cramped conditions and the fact that it is rare to find the altar empty. I had to visit a few times and sit through a 45 minute mass with the tripod set up, not understanding a word of Lithuanian and feeling a bit self conscious trying to take the 75 images necessary for the panorama while appearing to be there for the mass....... ;-) Not sure if I pulled that off, but I managed to avoid anyone being in the image somehow (a big challenge in itself) except the priest (I did get a version without the priest and another with the altar full of worshippers as was it like most of the time) but actually I think he adds a bit of dynamism to the scene) so I was happy with the image. Oh, and it isn't possible to get a completely geometically symmetrical, straight view. The altar itself seems to be slightly wonky and correcting one line upsets another.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Himmelsrasta (a compound word, himmel:heaven and rast:break) is a mountain home in Ljungdalen (Jämtland County, Sweden) built by swedish artist Paul Jonze in the 1940s consisting of two houses and a tradtionell Sami goahti (in the foregrund here). As a young artist Jonze worked with many leading architects and was 1909 commissioned to make an inventory of items of rural culture by the Association for Jämtlands Handicrafts (and he found the Överhogdal tapestries). He spent his last twenty years in Himmelsrasta and today he is best known for his mountain landscape paintings. The property is unique because it is located high up in the mountains, well above the tree line and with no roads and only reachable by foot in the summer or by cross country skiing or snowmobile in the winter. I chose, of course, skiing (as an eco-friendly photographer).

On the other hand, the subject covers barely 30 percent of the image area, the rest is empty space, which does not add quality to the composition IMHO. A closer crop (suggestion added) would emphasize the mood considerably but would also reduce the image size below the 2 Mpix minimum, and sharpness would be below threshold. – Besides, I’m not satisfied with the white balance, the image looks blueish to me. --Kreuzschnabel 07:45, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Route of Prince Maximilian of Wied in the interior of North America 1832-1834

The map shows the northern states of the United States of America in 1832. At that time the rivers of the Mississippi and the Missouri formed the border between the east settled area of the Americans and the western area of the Indians. The areas of the different Indian tribes and the villages and towns of Americans are inscribed on the map. An orange line indicates the northern boundary of America. The red lines from Boston to the upper Missouri and back to New York marked the history of the Expedition of the scientist Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied and the painter Karl Bodmer in the years 1832-1834.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Very nice colours, great subject, good composition. Like a painting. But unfortunately also like a painting there is no sharpness. I don't know what went wrong (focus too close? camera shake at 1/25s?) I'd accept that at 36MP 100% but this has been downsampled to 66% (actually 85% plus cropping) and the lighting conditions are ideal. -- Colin (talk) 11:38, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for your comment. if you like I give you some technical detail: I used a tripod, self timer set at 5 seconds delay and shutter release after 2 seconds of mirror up, the focus point is on the rocks, the picture control of the camera is set at neutral. I did not any sharpening. --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 15:11, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
      • Moroder, when you said "focus point is on the rocks" did you mean the distant mountains? I find that hard to believe as they are more blurred than the near grass. But if so, then that is surely wasting the DoF for f/13, which would allow you to focus on the trees (or nearer) and have everything pretty sharp. All digital images are sharpened, it is just a question of whether you add more than the software does by default. Also, all digital images have noise reduction and perhaps in this picture that is set too strong and has robbed detail. If you have the raw file, I would be happy to experiment with Lightroom to see what can be achieved -- I wouldn't publish the result, just email you for you to compare. -- Colin (talk) 19:28, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The point of focus? Where is it? It's not on the rocks, not "on the trees (or nearer)" where it should be and not on "the near grass" which is blurred. It is on the Moon! What is wrong with you man? Pixelnerd? nitpicker? Are you trying to say that all reviewers supporting this picture in less than 24 hours are jerks. Has there been a support epidemic on FP? Are you sure your monitor works properly? When did you have your last eyecheck (pardon me). This picture has been taken imo under the best conditions. At the distance of the trees and with this lens it does not make a difference where the focal point is and you cannot even make up your mind what is wrong with this picture, if there is something wrong. If you suffer from envy I feel bad for you (I am joking) and it is dismal for you and for all of us. How may I send you a 76 MB file? Cheers --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 16:28, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks @Wilfredor: for your help and support --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 13:27, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Since the NEF raw file has been licensed CC BY-SA, I am able to create and publish a derivative work (normally I would not publish a derived work if someone sends me a raw file). I have uploaded it to File:Mont de Seuc y l Saslong Edit.jpg. I have tried to reproduce the same tone and framing. The image is cropped from the original raw and reduced to 85% size to result in the same 15MP JPG. I applied Lightroom's profile for the lens but have left the rotation/perspective as per the original raw file -- the camera would be level on the tripod and the trees look upright. The image has some global sharpening applied, together with selective sharpening and noise-reduction as appropriate. I think the edit is a technical improvement on the nomination, which is a fine picture. But this is Moroder nomination so up to him if he wants to nominate an alternative. Thanks to Wilfredor for help with the raw file. Kreuzschnabel I hope this is sharper for you and the perspective ok (I can only assume the small hut on the far left is leaning in reality -- there is no way to straighten it without making the trees slope). -- Colin (talk) 22:04, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment To get more of them into focus, I would have had to stop down beyond f/8, which certainly would have impaired the sharpness due to diffraction – or take an entire series for focus stacking.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very nice specimen in good light in its natural environment. Sharpness is fine given the resolution. I do think the aperture could have been stopped down to e.g. f/11 to achieve a better overall compromise between DOF and diffraction blur, but for me DOF is sufficient. It adds a little of bokeh to it and helps the main subject stand out better from the background. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:48, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I disagree with King of Hearts about the light. People go there to sunbathe so a picture in full sun with colourful water is appropriate to the subject. I don't find the scrub land surrounding the beach particularly attractive. The tree in the bottom of the picture obscures some of the beach.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Unlike Wilfredor, I wasn't disappointed by the quality at full size -- one can't expect razor sharpness at those kinds of distances. Downsized 75% to 14MP it is sharp. I think at Commons we can see educational value in daylight lighting. While commercial landscape photographers know that sunrise/sunset are special times for postcards and coffee table books, there is merit in seeing such a landscape as it is, rather than tinted by an orange sky or covered in snow. One niggle is that I don't think you've quite succeed in getting enough near foreground for that to work well (it just looks arbitrarily cropped). Consider a 3:1 ratio aspect of the top portion to concentrate on just the view rather than what is near one's feet. That crop has the benefit of the horizon aligning with the rule-of-thirds, for what that is worth. -- Colin (talk) 10:43, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for the support, Colin. The purpose of the near crop is to show the way up to the peak through the gravel and that the pic is not taken from a plane.

      • Thank you for your suggestions, I´am really thankfully about it! The f/1.4 50mm may have been the better choice, not the 70-200. It was extremely difficult, I just had 50cm space to handle this, I did´nt even had space to look through the viewfinder or monitor. This shall not be an excuse, it just was a unique opportunity for me. I had no chance to make a 2nd row. Not with this pano-head. --Hubertl (talk) 13:43, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
        • No problem. I took a very similar panorama in Riga last month using two rows and a 50mm lens, so I'm familiar with panoramas such as this. You shouldn't need to use a panoramic head in this instance though, because parallax errors would be minimal as the buildings are very far away. In fact, I took my panorama hand-held. Not only that, because the bell tower in the church is hexagonal (or maybe octagonal, I forget), I took different photos from different locations inside the bell tower. As the camera direction rotated around 360 degrees, I actually moved my location inside the tower to suit this (mostly so that when looking down, I would not see the edge of the tower in the frame). I would guess that the camera location rotated around a 3-4 metre diameter, and still there are no significant parallax errors. So I think it would have been better to shoot this image hand-held, and then you could more easily shoot a second row. Diliff (talk) 14:36, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

  • weak Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose – not a bad panorama but a) per Diliff and b) there’s many, many small stitching errors.

I mean the darkest parts of the both wings are just over the dark area of the background (half top of the image), and that don't help for to highlight the butterfly, that's even increase the contrast between the half bottom and the half top, it's the first thing I think when I look at the image : dark half top + clear half bottom = a bit unbalenced (IMO). In macro the backgrounds are very important for compositions, and it's very hard but necessary to think at what will be the background in the final result. This image is nice and well done IMO, but here we agree that we speak about outstanding images. I hope to have been a little more precise. :)-- Christian Ferrer Talk / Images 14:59, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose 1. for size – a picture barely above the minimum requirement has to be very special for me to support. 2. The floor before her feet looks heavily cloned and softened/smeared. At the lower right of her, there’s a sharp piece among blurred ones. That does not work, sorry. Additionally, there’s considerable chromatic aberration in her hair decoration. While it’s a nice pic, IMHO it’s not among the very best Commons has to offer. --Kreuzschnabel 16:16, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

The Tower Bridge is a bascule and suspension bridge located in the center of London that crosses the River Thames. Its name is taken from the Tower of London, located nearby and has become an iconic symbol of London. The bridge was built between 1886 and 1894 and has a length of 244 m (800 feet) and the height of the towers is 65 m (213 feet). The 61 m (200 feet) long central span is split into two equal bascules than can be raised 86 degrees to allow the transit of ships. Otherwise the bridge is open to the traffic and to the pedestrians.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Diliff - uploaded by Diliff - nominated by Diliff -- Diliff. As you can probably tell from this image, this chapel is very small (I was as far back as was physically possible, any further back and I would have fallen out the window!) and it was a challenge to capture it, both because of the cramped conditions and the fact that it is rare to find the altar empty. I had to visit a few times and sit through a 45 minute mass with the tripod set up, not understanding a word of Lithuanian and feeling a bit self conscious trying to take the 75 images necessary for the panorama while appearing to be there for the mass....... ;-) Not sure if I pulled that off, but I managed to avoid anyone being in the image somehow (a big challenge in itself) except the priest (I did get a version without the priest and another with the altar full of worshippers as was it like most of the time) but actually I think he adds a bit of dynamism to the scene) so I was happy with the image. Oh, and it isn't possible to get a completely geometically symmetrical, straight view. The altar itself seems to be slightly wonky and correcting one line upsets another.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Himmelsrasta (a compound word, himmel:heaven and rast:break) is a mountain home in Ljungdalen (Jämtland County, Sweden) built by swedish artist Paul Jonze in the 1940s consisting of two houses and a tradtionell Sami goahti (in the foregrund here). As a young artist Jonze worked with many leading architects and was 1909 commissioned to make an inventory of items of rural culture by the Association for Jämtlands Handicrafts (and he found the Överhogdal tapestries). He spent his last twenty years in Himmelsrasta and today he is best known for his mountain landscape paintings. The property is unique because it is located high up in the mountains, well above the tree line and with no roads and only reachable by foot in the summer or by cross country skiing or snowmobile in the winter. I chose, of course, skiing (as an eco-friendly photographer).

On the other hand, the subject covers barely 30 percent of the image area, the rest is empty space, which does not add quality to the composition IMHO. A closer crop (suggestion added) would emphasize the mood considerably but would also reduce the image size below the 2 Mpix minimum, and sharpness would be below threshold. – Besides, I’m not satisfied with the white balance, the image looks blueish to me. --Kreuzschnabel 07:45, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Route of Prince Maximilian of Wied in the interior of North America 1832-1834

The map shows the northern states of the United States of America in 1832. At that time the rivers of the Mississippi and the Missouri formed the border between the east settled area of the Americans and the western area of the Indians. The areas of the different Indian tribes and the villages and towns of Americans are inscribed on the map. An orange line indicates the northern boundary of America. The red lines from Boston to the upper Missouri and back to New York marked the history of the Expedition of the scientist Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied and the painter Karl Bodmer in the years 1832-1834.

I don't know what went wrong (focus too close? camera shake at 1/25s?) I'd accept that at 36MP 100% but this has been downsampled to 66% (actually 85% plus cropping) and the lighting conditions are ideal. -- Colin (talk) 11:38, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for your comment. if you like I give you some technical detail: I used a tripod, self timer set at 5 seconds delay and shutter release after 2 seconds of mirror up, the focus point is on the rocks, the picture control of the camera is set at neutral. I did not any sharpening. --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 15:11, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
      • Moroder, when you said "focus point is on the rocks" did you mean the distant mountains? I find that hard to believe as they are more blurred than the near grass. But if so, then that is surely wasting the DoF for f/13, which would allow you to focus on the trees (or nearer) and have everything pretty sharp. All digital images are sharpened, it is just a question of whether you add more than the software does by default. Also, all digital images have noise reduction and perhaps in this picture that is set too strong and has robbed detail. If you have the raw file, I would be happy to experiment with Lightroom to see what can be achieved -- I wouldn't publish the result, just email you for you to compare. -- Colin (talk) 19:28, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The point of focus? Where is it? It's not on the rocks, not "on the trees (or nearer)" where it should be and not on "the near grass" which is blurred. It is on the Moon! What is wrong with you man? Pixelnerd? nitpicker? Are you trying to say that all reviewers supporting this picture in less than 24 hours are jerks. Has there been a support epidemic on FP? Are you sure your monitor works properly? When did you have your last eyecheck (pardon me). This picture has been taken imo under the best conditions. At the distance of the trees and with this lens it does not make a difference where the focal point is and you cannot even make up your mind what is wrong with this picture, if there is something wrong. If you suffer from envy I feel bad for you (I am joking) and it is dismal for you and for all of us. How may I send you a 76 MB file? Cheers --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 16:28, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks @Wilfredor: for your help and support --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 13:27, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Since the NEF raw file has been licensed CC BY-SA, I am able to create and publish a derivative work (normally I would not publish a derived work if someone sends me a raw file). I have uploaded it to File:Mont de Seuc y l Saslong Edit.jpg. I have tried to reproduce the same tone and framing. The image is cropped from the original raw and reduced to 85% size to result in the same 15MP JPG. I applied Lightroom's profile for the lens but have left the rotation/perspective as per the original raw file -- the camera would be level on the tripod and the trees look upright. The image has some global sharpening applied, together with selective sharpening and noise-reduction as appropriate. I think the edit is a technical improvement on the nomination, which is a fine picture. But this is Moroder nomination so up to him if he wants to nominate an alternative. Thanks to Wilfredor for help with the raw file. Kreuzschnabel I hope this is sharper for you and the perspective ok (I can only assume the small hut on the far left is leaning in reality -- there is no way to straighten it without making the trees slope). -- Colin (talk) 22:04, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not working for me I'm afraid. Portrait aspect isn't helping. Not minimal enough perhaps. The focus seems to be on the breaking wave yet the shutter isn't fast enough to capture it crisp. The foam and especially the sand is blurry but not blurry enough to be smooth. The middle of the sea isn't interesting at all. I don't know. Perhaps either very simple calm sea or turbulent sea. -- Colin (talk) 15:40, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment What I feel about the composition: A good idea for a minimalist composition, but the main motive seems to be within the strip of foam and the delicate veil of splashing (the timing was very good), these two elements are horizontal and the photo is vertical, the high angle (for those elements) does not help because it leads my gaze to the horizon leaving these elements in the second plan. In summary a horizontal composition and a very lower angle would be better IMO. -- Lauro Sirgadocontribs 14:07, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

The entire picture (see right) shows the full adult, but I find the right neighbour bird a bit disturbing and some more space over the neck might also be nice. I prefer the crop, there is nothing disturbing and it shows a focus on the care.--CHK46 (talk) 20:23, 18 October 2014 (UTC). Thankyou very much for showing the alternative.

Hmmm.. I am afraid the fix is not very good, there is also some red fringing more to the right. How did you try to address it? The best method is to compensate for CA directly in a raw converter such as LightRoom or Digital Photo Professional - the native Canon raw converter. I have some terrible lenses when it comes to CA, but after correcting for it in the raw converter it turns out surprisingly well. -- Slaunger (talk) 18:43, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Tussilago farfara (Coltsfoot) growing on a rubble tip
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info A bunch of Tussilago farfara (Coltsfoot) growing in its most natural habitat, a dry rubble tip. Though the most common image for this species on Commons appears to be File:Coltsfoot.jpg, which is a fine image, I prefer my image for its atmosphere and warm light. While the foremost blossoms are in focus, the more remote ones aren’t in order to obtain a nice smooth background blur.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment To get more of them into focus, I would have had to stop down beyond f/8, which certainly would have impaired the sharpness due to diffraction – or take an entire series for focus stacking. This is almost a close-up shot, taken from a very short distance, which comes usually with a shallow DoF. --Kreuzschnabel 19:45, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very nice specimen in good light in its natural environment. Sharpness is fine given the resolution. I do think the aperture could have been stopped down to e.g. f/11 to achieve a better overall compromise between DOF and diffraction blur, but for me DOF is sufficient. It adds a little of bokeh to it and helps the main subject stand out better from the background. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:48, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I think that about 4 flowers are in focus, but I guess that's a question of how narrow the definition of "in focus" is. At least the triangle in the center is sharp for me. The atmosphere is good, with the warm light. The picture you linked is almost oversharpened to me. I guess they both have their positive qualities. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 07:09, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

In most lenses used for plant photography you can get at least up to F16 without diffraction, but often even that cannot put everything in focus. Anyway there is really no need for more DOF here IMO.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Unlike Wilfredor, I wasn't disappointed by the quality at full size -- one can't expect razor sharpness at those kinds of distances. Downsized 75% to 14MP it is sharp. I think at Commons we can see educational value in daylight lighting. While commercial landscape photographers know that sunrise/sunset are special times for postcards and coffee table books, there is merit in seeing such a landscape as it is, rather than tinted by an orange sky or covered in snow. One niggle is that I don't think you've quite succeed in getting enough near foreground for that to work well (it just looks arbitrarily cropped). Consider a 3:1 ratio aspect of the top portion to concentrate on just the view rather than what is near one's feet. That crop has the benefit of the horizon aligning with the rule-of-thirds, for what that is worth. -- Colin (talk) 10:43, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
