Featured picture candidates


FPCandiateicon.svg

Featured picture candidates are images that the community will vote on, to determine whether or not they will be highlighted as some of the finest on Commons. This page lists the candidates to become featured pictures. The picture of the day images are selected from featured pictures.

Old candidates for Featured pictures are listed here. There are also chronological lists of featured pictures: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and current month.

For another overview of our finest pictures, take a look at our annual picture of the year election.

Formal things[edit]

Nominating[edit]

Guidelines for nominators[edit]

Please read the complete guidelines before nominating.

This is a summary of what to look for when submitting and reviewing FP candidates:

  • Licensing - Images licensed with solely "GFDL" or "GFDL and an NC-only license" are not acceptable due the restrictions placed on re-use by these licenses.
  • ResolutionImages (with the exception of animations, videos, and SVGs) of lower resolution than 2 million pixels (pixels, not bytes) are typically rejected unless there are 'strong mitigating reasons'. Note that a 1600 × 1200 image has 1.92 Mpx, just less than the 2 million level. A 1920 × 1080 image, commonly known as Full HD, has 2.07 Mpx, just more than the 2 million level.
Graphics on Commons are not only viewed on conventional computer screens. They may be used in high-resolution print versions, and the images may be cropped to focus on portions of the image. See Commons:Why we need high resolution media for more information.
  • Scans – While not official policy, Help:Scanning provides advice on the preparation of various types of images that may be useful.
  • General quality – pictures being nominated should be of high technical quality.
  • Digital manipulations must not deceive the viewer. Digital manipulation for the purpose of correcting flaws in an image is generally acceptable, provided it is limited, well-done, and not intended to deceive.
    • For photographs, typical acceptable manipulations include cropping, perspective correction, sharpening/blurring, and colour/exposure correction. More extensive manipulations, such as removal of distracting background elements, should be clearly described in the image text, by means of the {{Retouched picture}} template. Undescribed or mis-described manipulations which cause the main subject to be misrepresented are never acceptable.
    • For historic images, acceptable manipulations might include digitally fixing rips, removal of stains, cleanup of dirt, and, for mass-produced artworks such as engravings, removal of flaws inherent to the particular reproduction, such as over-inking. Careful colour adjustments may be used to bring out the original work from the signs of ageing, though care should be taken to restore a natural appearance. The original artistic intent should be considered when deciding whether it is appropriate to make a change. Edits to historic material should be documented in detail within the file description, and an unedited version should be uploaded and cross linked for comparison.
  • Valueour main goal is to feature most valuable pictures from all others. Pictures should be in some way special, so please be aware that:
    • almost all sunsets are aesthetically pleasing, and most such pictures are not in essence different from others,
    • night-shots are pretty but normally more details can be shown on pictures taken at daytime,
    • beautiful does not always mean valuable.


Artworks, illustrations, and historical documents

There are many different types of non-photographic media, including engravings, watercolours, paintings, etchings, and various others. Hence, it is difficult to set hard-and-fast guidelines. However, generally speaking, works can be divided into three types: Those that can be scanned, those that must be photographed, and those specifically created to illustrate a subject.

Works that must be photographed include most paintings, sculptures, works too delicate or too unique to allow them to be put on a scanner, and so on. For these, the requirements for photography, below, may be mostly followed; however, it should be noted that photographs which cut off part of the original painting are generally not considered featurable.

Works that may be scanned include most works created by processes that allow for mass distribution. For instance, illustrations published with novels. For these, it is generally accepted that a certain amount of extra manipulation is permissible to remove flaws inherent to one copy of the work, since the particular copy – of which hundreds, or even thousands of copies also exist – is not so important as the work itself.

Works created to serve a purpose include diagrams, scientific illustrations, and demonstrations of contemporary artistic styles. For these, the main requirement is that they serve their purpose well.

Provided the reproduction is of high quality, an artwork generally only needs one of the following four things to be featurable:

  • Notable in its own right: Works by major artists, or works that are otherwise notable, such as the subjects of a controversy.
  • Of high artistic merit: Works which, while not particularly well known, are none the less wonderful examples of their particular type or school of art.
  • Of high historic merit: The historical method values very early illustrations of scenes and events over later ones. Hence, a work of poor quality depicting a contemporaneous historical event can be nonetheless important, even if the artistic merit is relatively low. Likewise, scans or photographs of important documents – which may not be at all artistic – nonetheless may be highly valuable if the documents are historically significant. The reason for the image's historical importance should be briefly stated in the nomination, for those reviewers unfamiliar with the subject.
  • Of high illustrative merit: Works that illustrate or help explain notable subjects, for instance, illustrations of books, scientific subjects, or technical processes. The amount of artistic merit required for these will vary by subject, but, for instance, an illustration that makes the working of a complicated piece of machinery very clear need not be notable as a piece of artwork as well, whereas an illustration for a book might well be expected to reach much higher artistic standards.

Digital restorations must also be well documented. An unedited version of the image should be uploaded locally, when possible, and cross-linked from the file hosting page. Edit notes should be specified in detail, such as "Rotated and cropped. Dirt, scratches, and stains removed. Histogram adjusted and colors balanced."

Photographs

On the technical side, we have focus, exposure, composition, movement control and depth of field.

  • Focus – every important object in the picture should normally be sharp.
  • Exposure refers to the shutter diaphragm combination that renders an image with a tonal curve that ideally is able to represent in acceptable detail shadows and highlights within the image. This is called latitude. Images can be on the low side of the tonal curve (low range), the middle (middle range) or high side (upper range). Digital cameras (or images) have a narrower latitude than film. Lack of shadow detail is not necessarily a negative characteristic. In fact, it can be part of the desired effect. Burned highlights in large areas are a distracting element.
  • Composition refers to the arrangement of the elements within the image. The "Rule of Thirds" is a good guideline for composition and is an inheritance from the painting school. The idea is to divide the image with two imaginary horizontal and two vertical lines, thus dividing the image into thirds horizontally and vertically. Centering the subject is often less interesting than placing the subject in one of the "interest points", the 4 intersection between these horizontal and vertical lines intersect. Horizons should almost never be placed in the middle, where they "cut" the image in half. The upper or lower horizontal line is often a good choice. The main idea is to use space to create a dynamic image.
    • Foreground and background – foreground and background objects may be distracting. You should check that something in front of the subject doesn't hide important elements and that something in background doesn't spoil the composition (for example that the streetlight doesn't "stand" on someone's head).
  • Movement control refers to the manner in which motion is represented in the image. Motion can be frozen or blurred. Neither one is better than the other. It is the intention of representation. Movement is relative within the objects of the image. For example, photographing a race car that appears frozen in relation to the background does not give us a sense of speed or motion, so technique dictates to represent the car in a frozen manner but with a blurred background, thus creating the sense of motion, this is called "panning". On the other hand, representing a basketball player in a high jump frozen in relation to everything else, due to the "unnatural" nature of the pose would be a good photograph.
  • Depth of field (DOF) refers to the area in focus in front of and beyond main subject. Depth of field is chosen according to the specific needs of every picture. Large or small DOF can either way add or subtract to the quality of the image. Low depth of field can be used to bring attention to the main subject, separating it from the general environment. High depth of field can be used to emphasize space. Short focal length lenses (wide angles) yield large DOF, and vice versa, long focal lenses (telephotos) have shallow DOF. Small apertures yield large DOF and conversely, large apertures yield shallow DOF.

On the graphic elements we have shape, volume, colour, texture, perspective, balance, proportion, noise, etc.

  • Shape refers to the contour of the main subjects.
  • Volume refers to the three dimensional quality of the object. This is accomplished using side light. Contrary to general belief, front lighting is not the best light. It tends to flatten subject. Best light of day is early morning or late afternoon.
  • Colour is important. Over saturated colours are not good.
  • Texture refers to the quality of the surface of the subject. It is enhanced by side lighting… it is the "feel" to the touch.
  • Perspective refers to the "angle" accompanied by lines that disappear into a vanishing point that may or may not be inside the image.
  • Balance refers to the arrangement of subjects within the image that can either give equal weight or appear to be heavier on one side.
  • Proportion refers to the relation of size of objects in picture. Generally, we tend to represent small objects small in relation to others, but a good technique is to represent small objects large contrary to natural size relationship. For example, a small flower is given preponderance over a large mountain…. This is called inversion of scales.
Not all elements must be present. Some photographs can be judged on individual characteristics, that is, an image can be about color or texture, or colour AND texture, etc.
  • Noise refers to unwanted corruption of colour brightness and quality and can be caused by underexposure. It is not a desirable quality and can be grounds for opposition.
  • Symbolic meaning or relevance … Opinion wars can begin here … A bad picture of a very difficult subject is a better picture than a good picture of an ordinary subject. A good picture of a difficult subject is an extraordinary photograph.
Images can be culturally biased by the photographer and/or the observer. The meaning of the image should be judged according to the cultural context of the image, not by the cultural context of the observer. An image "speaks" to people, and it has the capacity to evoke emotion such as tenderness, rage, rejection, happiness, sadness, etc. Good photographs are not limited to evoking pleasant sensations …

You will maximise the chances of your nominations succeeding if you read the complete guidelines before nominating.

Set nominations

Sets are temporarily disallowed for technical reasons; will reopen soon.

If a group of images are thematically connected in a direct and obvious way, they can be nominated together as a set.

  • All images should be processed and presented in a similar manner to ensure consistency amongst the set.
  • All images should be linked to all others in the "Other Versions" section of the image summary.
  • If the set of subjects has a limited number of elements, then there should be a complete set of images. This may result in images in this kind of set with no "wow" factor, and perhaps little value on their own. Their value is closely bound to the value of having a complete set of these subjects. The decision to feature should be based on this overall value.
  • If the set of subjects is unlimited, the images should be chosen judiciously. Each image should be sufficiently different to the others to add a great deal of value to the overall set. The majority of images should be able to qualify for FP on their own.
  • All images should be of high technical quality.

Adding a new nomination[edit]

If you believe that you have found or created an image that could be considered valuable, with appropriate image description and licensing, then do the following.

Step 1: copy the image name into this box, after the text already present in the box, for example, Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Your image filename.jpg. Then click on the "create new nomination" button.

All single files:

For renominations, simply add /2 after the filename. For example, Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Foo.jpg/2


Set nominations ONLY

Sets are temporarily disallowed for technical reasons; will reopen soon.

Step 2: follow the instructions on the page that you are taken to, and save that page.

Step 3: manually insert a link to the created page at the top of Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list: Click here, and add the following line to the TOP of the nominations list:

{{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Your image filename.jpg}}

Optional: if you are not the creator of the image, please notify him/her using {{subst:FPC-notice|Your image filename.jpg}} -- ~~~~.

Voting[edit]

Editors whose accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. Everybody can vote for his/her own nominations. Anonymous (IP) votes are not allowed.

You may use following templates:

  • {{Support}} (Symbol support vote.svg Support),
  • {{Oppose}} (Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose),
  • {{Neutral}} (Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral),
  • {{Comment}} (Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment),
  • {{Info}} (Pictogram voting info.svg Info),
  • {{Question}} (Pictogram voting question.svg Question),
  • {{Request}} (Pictogram voting question-blue.svg Request).

You may indicate that the image has no chance of success with the template {{FPX|reason - ~~~~}}, where reason explains why the image is clearly unacceptable as a FP. The template can only be used when there are no support votes other than the one from the nominator.

A well-written review helps participants (photographers, nominators and reviewers) improve their skills by providing insight into the strengths and weaknesses of a picture. Explain your reasoning, especially when opposing a candidate (which has been carefully selected by the author/nominator). English is the most widely understood language on Commons, but any language may be used in your review. A helpful review will often reference one or more of the criteria listed above.

Unhelpful reasons for opposing include:

  • No reason
  • "I don't like it" and other empty assessments
  • "You can do better" and other criticisms of the author/nominator rather than the image

Remember also to put your signature (~~~~).

Featured picture delisting candidates[edit]

Over time, featured picture standards change. It may be decided that for some pictures which were formerly "good enough", this is no longer the case. This is for listing an image which you believe no longer deserves to be a featured picture. For these, vote:

Text to use Displays as Meaning
{{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep It deserves to remain a featured picture
{{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist It does not deserve to be a featured picture anymore.

This can also be used for cases in which a previous version of an image was promoted to FP, but a newer version of the image has been made and is believed to be superior to the old version, e.g. a newly edited version of a photo or a new scan of a historical image. In particular, it is not intended for replacing older photos of a particular subject with newer photos of the same subject, or in any other case where the current FP and the proposed replacement are essentially different images. For these nominations, vote:

Text to use Displays as Meaning
{{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep Do not replace the old image with the new image as an FP.
{{Delistandreplace}} Symbol redirect vote.svg Delist and replace Replace the current FP with the proposed replacement.

If you believe that some picture no longer meets the criteria for FP, you can nominate it for delisting, copying the image name into this box, after the text already present in the box:


In the new delisting nomination page just created you should include:

  • Information on the origin of the image (creator, uploader);
  • A link to the original FP nomination (it will appear under "Links" on the image description page);
  • Your reasons for nominating the image and your username.

After that, you have to manually insert a link to the created page at the top of Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list.

As a courtesy, leave an informative note on the talk page(s) of the original creator, uploader(s), and nominator with a link to the delisting candidate. {{subst:FPC-notice-removal}} can be used for this purpose.

Featured picture candidate policy[edit]

General rules[edit]

  1. The voting period is 9 complete days counted from the nomination. After the end of this period the result will be determined. Votes added on day 10 and after are not counted.
  2. Nominations by anonymous contributors are welcome
  3. Contributions to discussion by anonymous contributors are welcome
  4. Only registered contributors whose Commons accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. Exception: registered users can always vote in their own nominations no matter the account age and number of edits.
  5. Nominations do not count as votes. Support must be explicitly stated.
  6. Nominators and authors can withdraw their nominated pictures at any time. This is done by adding the following template: {{withdraw}} ~~~~
  7. Remember, the goal of the Wikimedia Commons project is to provide a central repository for free images to be used by all Wikimedia projects, including possible future projects. This is not simply a repository for Wikipedia images, so images should not be judged here on their suitability for that project.
  8. Rules of the 5th day based on vote counts on day number 5 (day of nomination + 5)
    1. Pictures are speedy declined if they have no support (apart from the nominator).
    2. Pictures are speedy promoted if they have 10 support votes or more and no oppose votes. (Note that if it takes more than five days to reach this threshold, the picture can be promoted as soon as it is reached.)
    3. Once either speedy criterion is reached, the voting period is considered closed, and no more votes may be added.
  9. Pictures tagged {{FPX}} may be removed from the list 24 hours after the tag was applied, provided there are no support votes other than that of the nominator.
  10. Pictures tagged {{FPD}} (FP-Denied) may be removed from the list 24 hours after the tag was applied.
  11. Only two active nominations by the same user (that is, nominations under review and not yet closed) are allowed. The main purpose of this measure is to contribute to a better average quality of nominations, by driving nominators/creators to choose carefully the pictures presented to the forum.

Featuring and delisting rules[edit]

A candidate will become a featured picture in compliance with following conditions:

  1. Appropriate license (of course)
  2. At least seven Symbol support vote.svg Support votes at the end of nine days
  3. Ratio of supporting/opposing votes at least 2/1 (a two-thirds majority); same for delist/keep votes
  4. Two different versions of the same picture cannot both be featured, but only the one with higher level of support, as determined by the closer. Whenever the closer is not sure which version has consensus to be featured, he/she should attempt to contact the voters to clarify their opinions if not clear from the nomination page.

The delisting rules are the same as those for FPs, with voting taking place over the same time period. The rule of the 5th day is applied to delisting candidates that have received no votes to delist, other than that of the proposer, by day 5. There is also a limit of two active delisting nominations per user, which is in addition to the limit of two active regular nominations.

The FPCBot handles the vote counting and closing in most cases, current exceptions are candidates containing multiple versions of the image as well as FPXed and withdrawn nominations. Any experienced user may close the requests not handled by the bot. For instructions on how to close nominations, see Commons:Featured picture candidates/What to do after voting is finished. Also note that there is a manual review stage between the bot has counted the votes and before they are finally closed by the bot, this manual review can be done by any user that are familiar with the voting rules.

Above all, be polite[edit]

Please don't forget that the image you are judging is somebody's work. Avoid using phrases like "it looks terrible" and "I hate it". If you must oppose, please do so with consideration. Also remember that your command of English might not be the same as someone else's. Choose your words with care.

Happy judging… and remember... all rules can be broken.

Table of contents[edit]

List may contain works considered Not Safe for Work (nudity).

Nominators are requested, out of courtesy, to include the {{nsfw}} template with such images. Users may select the gadget in user preferences "Deferred display of images tagged with {{nsfw}} on COM:FPC" to enable the template's effect of hiding the image until selected.

Thanks for your examples, but there were a long discussion here. No need more examples. A color image has a more EV than a BW for me. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 20:34, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
ArionEstar you are right, and this continues to be tiresome. We all get that Alchemist-hp doesn't appreciate b&w but there's no need for him to continue reminding everyone of his limitations in photographic criticism. -- Colin (talk) 21:35, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
@Colin: a B&W image is and remains a castration of the reality! That is my valid criticism! --Alchemist-hp (talk) 21:44, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
"a castration of the reality" Do you realise you extreme you sound? The reality moves, smells and has 3D, and yet.... Please stop disrupting FP with your bias. There is always the possibility to have more EV. Wisdom says more isn't always better. -- Colin (talk) 21:56, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Alchemist-hp if you are going to continue voting against b&w on principle, then I will continue to exercise my right to criticise such biased and weak critical analysis, and to defend others who question it. If you have a problem with this, I suggest you unwatch after voting. -- Colin (talk) 22:05, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
@Colin you can do whatever you like. I have no problem with it. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 22:17, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
@The_Photographer a proposal: if possible for you, so please show us the color image as an alternative too. Thanks, --Alchemist-hp (talk) 22:17, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Why? It is up to "The Photographer" of course, but continues to represent a misunderstanding of b&w and our choices as artists. This is his creative choice, not yours. Do you ask everyone who nominates a cropped photo to also upload the uncropped as an alternative? Or perhaps we should nominate the "out-of-camera" unadjusted exposure/colours version as an alternative in case you don't care for the post-processing someone has done? Why not just ask for the RAW and forget about reviewing JPGs at all? This is rude. Please review what you are given in the nomination, or taken your own picture. -- Colin (talk) 22:28, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Why not? It was only a proposal from me. Have a nice time at our FP side. Regards, --Alchemist-hp (talk) 22:35, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
@Colin, Alchemist-hp: In fact, I support this picture more because we have to have more FPs of Brazil. While there are countries with more than 80 FPs, we have only 32 FPs of Brazil. For me, this number could and should be big and great. 😄 ArionEstar 😜 (talk) 22:48, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I shouldn't like this. The DoF leaves some parts of the flower to be desired, and it's not even wild ... it's cut. There is, despite the natural tinge of the petal ends, some CA. In fact, it almost looks like a grayscale image that was later hand-tinted.

    But I like it anyway. For what it lacks in technical sophistication, it more than makes up for in artistic appeal. On some level, this just speaks to me ... so plainly and clearly. It does more than speak, actually—it sings. I cannot not hear Satie's Gymnopédie No. 1 (I know, such a cliché) as I ponder this image. It will make a great album cover one day for the right music.

Daniel Case (talk) 16:54, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
FYI Daniel Case, snowmelts like this have become increasingly frequent over the last decade. Having 10 oC+ temperatures in January is not normal in Canada. Otherwise, I agree the subject would be much better illustrated with a but more focus on the tree itself, there is a closeup version on the file's page in case you want to see the beaver's work in details.Tinss (talk) 19:12, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
Nothing in the image, or the filename for that matter, tells us this picture was taken in January ... we have to go to the EXIF for that. Or where it was taken FTM—I could take such a picture in the Catskills, near where I live, where such January melts have historically been more common. If you have to explain this much to get someone to understand why it should be an FP, it's not ever going to be an FP. Daniel Case (talk) 19:25, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I agree that, now having seen the phenomenon with my own adult eyes (I might have seen it when I was younger but not appreciated it fully), that the Thames at low tide is better appreciated in poetry than photography. However, on the whole, yes this is a picture most tourists get—which is why we should have one of as high a quality as we can get. If someone uploads a better one one day and nominates it here, then we can delist and replace. (And what's wrong with a classic tourist pic? I seem to remember we have in the past promoted to FP a tourist standard image of Lower ManhattanFace-smile.svg). Daniel Case (talk) 05:24, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Well, I don't see them as the same at all though... The detail visible in the Lower Manhattan image is much much higher (12000x3000 resolution, and pixel sharp, compared to 5000x3000 and not that sharp at 100%), and taken from a moving ferry (so had to shoot the panorama extremely quickly to avoid parallax errors), which makes it stand out compared to tourist snapshots IMO (although I didn't nominate it or vote on it!). I just don't see anything that stands out about this image though. My point wasn't that touristic views shouldn't be eligible for FP, it was that this image doesn't seem any better than a tourist snapshot, for me. The baseline for FPs (for me, anyway) is that it is an image that stands out amongst contemporary photography in some way (detail, composition, lighting, aesthetics etc). This image just doesn't have any of that IMO. Diliff (talk) 10:34, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Daniel Case, Commons "Delist and replace" isn't like the en:wp one. We don't delist and replace FPs when someone else takes a better one. We only use it when someone has improved the same image (e.g. a better photo of a painting, a reprocessing from raw file). Generally, once an image is FP it stays that way, and we only delist FPs if they are now embarrassingly bad compared to the standard of today. London is a heavily photographed city and we need to compare this to the kinds of photos that appears exceptional. For example, some very high EV with great detail or panorama, or some beautiful lighting due to time of day or weather. Pointing a high-quality DSLR at bits of London isn't enough. It's a useful picture and nice weather but I don't see it being among our finest. We can wait for someone to take a finer one. -- Colin (talk) 10:59, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

    • I don't really understand why the composition is destroyed though by using an off-centre composition. In this case, it shows the location of the building as it relates to the courtyard and the three dimensionality of it - a sense of its relationship that you don't get from a frontal view. Yes, this results in perspective leans of vertical lines but this is to be expected, and I don't think it is very extreme in this case. I also took this image of the building which is from a slightly different angle and does not include the church spire behind. Do you think this is better? It was taken 4 minutes later but you can see that in that time, the lighting changed a bit and it was darker. I specifically chose to photograph it illuminated at dusk because the building (House of Blackheads) stands out much better than during the day and contrasts nicely against the blue hour sky. Diliff (talk) 15:03, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thats one you mentioned definately works for me, should be first alternative. Actually i like off-centre, i hate all those centering and asking PD fine on 40-50 meters high tower, and especially mentioning PD at angle shot... its nonsense. Some are too much up the rules, and not know when is not so goood to obey them. Leaving that high church out, you get some more natural-looking PD correction. I didnt know it have some name-ambient conotation. Worth to rethink. --Mile (talk) 22:24, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

View of the 32 m (105 ft) high and 20 m (60 ft) wide crevice of the Gullfoss waterfall located in Suðurland, Iceland. The crevice extends perpendicular to the flow of the river and is 2.5 km long. The average amount of water running over this waterfall is 140 m3/s in the summertime, but up to 2000 m3/s have been measured. Together with Þingvellir and the geysers of Haukadalur, Gullfoss forms the Golden Circle, the most popular touristic attraction in Iceland.

I don't find the out of focus areas disturbing at all, they make it look like just a random encounter in the streets, which adds to the "natural" feeling. The tight composition works very well with that as well.

That's interesting, Greenwich Naval Hospital has been on my to-do list for some time now, but I live on the western side of London and never get around to heading that far east! ;-) Did you take any regular interior photos of it too? In any case, the rosette is well done, although a tripod and stopped down aperture might have increased the sharpness a bit. Diliff (talk) 09:07, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
Why thank you so mcuh for your support ... now I know how all those tween girls on Twitter feel when Justin Bieber retweets them (But not all of them, thankfullyFace-smile.svg).

Actually, yes I do have some other interiors that have made QI and which I am planning to nominate here soon.

As far as a tripod goes ... yes, I agree. I'm new to finally using a DSLR after shooting with just a DP/S for so long (and having had experience with film SLR, I feel like I've come back home). As I've gotten used to it more, a tripod is part of my plan for next year, as I would ruin less shots with it. And thanks for the tip about the aperture ...

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

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

Closing a featured picture promotion request[edit]

The bot[edit]

Note that the description below is for manual closure, this is mostly not needed anymore as there exists a bot (FPCBot) that counts the votes and handles the process below. However after the bot has counted the votes a manual review step is used to make sure the count is correct before the bot again picks up the work.

Manual procedure[edit]

Any experienced user may close requests.

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    Add the result of the voting at the bottom (on a new line with a space first)
    {{FPC-results-reviewed|support=x|oppose=x|neutral=x|featured=("yes" or "no")|category=xxx (leave blank if "featured=no")|sig=~~~~}}
    (for example see Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:The Bridge (August 2013).jpg). See also {{FPC-results-reviewed}}.
  2. Also edit the title of the candidate image template and add after the image tag
    featured or not featured
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] ===
    becomes
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], featured ===
  3. Save your edit.
  4. If it is featured:
    • Add the picture to the list of the four most recently featured pictures of an appropriate category of Commons:Featured pictures, list as the first one and delete the last one, so that the number is four again.
    • Also add the picture to an appropriate subpage of Commons:Featured pictures, list. Click on the most appropriate link beneath where you just added it as one of the four images.
    • Add the template {{Featured picture}} or {{Assessments|featured=1}} to the image description page.
      • If it was an alternative image, use the subpage/com-nom parameter: For example, if File:Foo.jpg was promoted at Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Bar.jpg, use {{Assessments|featured=1|com-nom=Bar.jpg}}
      • If the image is already featured on another wikipedia, just add featured=1 to the Assessements template. For instance {{Assessments|enwiki=1}} becomes {{Assessments|enwiki=1|featured=1}}
    • Add the picture to the chronological list of featured pictures. Put it in the gallery using this format: File:xxxxx.jpg|# - '''Headline'''<br>created by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]], uploaded by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]], nominated by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]]
      • The # should be replaced by 1 for the first image nominated that month, and counts up after that. Have a look at the other noms on that page for examples.
      • You may simplify this if multiple things were done by the same user. E.g.: File:xxxxx.jpg|# - '''Headline'''<br>created, uploaded, and nominated by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]]
    • Add == FP promotion ==

{{FPpromotion|File:XXXXX.jpg}} to the Talk Page of the nominator.

  1. As the last step (whether the image is featured or not), open Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list, click on [edit], and find the transclusion of the nomination you've just finished closing. It will be of the form:
    {{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:XXXXX.jpg}}
    Copy it to the bottom of Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/February 2015), save that page, and remove it from the candidate list.

Closing a delisting request[edit]

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    Add the result of the voting at the bottom (on a new line with a space first)
    '''Result:''' x delist, x keep, x neutral => /not/ delisted. ~~~~
    (for example see Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal/Image:Astrolabe-Persian-18C.jpg)
  2. Also edit the title of the delisting candidate image template and add after the image tag
    delisted or not delisted
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] === becomes === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], delisted ===
  3. Move the actual template from Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list to the bottom of the actual month page on Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/February 2015.
