  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I know you are trying to avoid an ugly sign at the base, but the effect is you are looking at the ceiling and the image is dominated by the pattern at the foot. So the reclining Buddha doesn't get much attention. Trying to get it all in with a wide angle just distorts the room and the size of the ... are they toes?. Perhaps better to concentrate on part like File:Wat Pho Large.jpg. -- Colin (talk) 20:32, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
    Ok, thanks, I see your point. No, no ugly sign but 40 heads and yes, those are the toes! :) What do you think about this version? Poco2 21:45, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

    Well, if you mean "bright" when saying "blown", I agree, but they are not overexposed. And, yes, as Christian says, that's Poland, a nice country with tricky weather (seen as Spaniard) :) Poco2 08:47, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
It's still a distracting surface, much more so than it would be if it were uniformly overcast. We cannot blame the weather for the failings of our photos anymore than Rafael Viñoly can blame the high sun for the death-ray problem at 20 Fenchurch Street.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose After certain considations I am not fully convinced of this photo. My question if this is an HDR aroused because it looks as if you've photographed against the light. The consequence is that the sky is quite bright and, as Daniel stated, somehow distracting. All buildings are in unfortunate shadow. This photo could have been better at a different time of the day. BTW: Please add geocoordinates. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:10, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for send me the RAW. Now you can easily see the difference in color of the sky bora bora version and real version. Clearly this is not just a change of lighting, this is a total change of the picture, especially in colors --Wilfredor (talk) 22:12, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes, maybe the sky can be brightened a little but very good editing by Diego --Christian Ferrer (talk) 06:43, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
Wilfredo, please, stop this. I am getting tired of your attempt to prove I don't know what. You are not supposed to change my nomination into a before-later comparison contest with a file that I haven't even publish and I sent you privately. You didn't even ask me.
As I already explained you via email I haven't done anything especial with this picture that I don't do with all other my pictures, apart from the fact that I had to lighten up the darker areas in the foreground heavily, as I already explained. You seem to have a problem with the colors, which IMO are okay and are the result of my standard settings. After almost 9000 pictures uploaded it is the first time I have this kind of discussion. I only shot RAW and RAW needs per se to be developed and requires some adjustments like sharpness, contrast, saturation (little in my case: value 7 in LR is my standard setting). Please, stop this and judge the result, you have already expressed your opinion clear enough (even in other pages complaining about "Bora Bora skies"), if you don't like the picture, keep your oppose vote, but let this nomination run and don't boicot it. Thank you for your understanding Poco2 07:46, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
Yo creo que este tema se salio un poco de control, no es para tanto. Simplemente no puedo creer que esté equivocado?, aparentemente así es por la cantidad de personas que están votando a favor. Creo que tendré que reconsiderar que es lo que es la realidad, la realidad desde el punto de vista del observador. Yo sinceramente no termino de ver esta imagen bien, algunos usuarios me han pedido que te pida, valga la redundancia, disculpas por haber subido una versión RAW JPG de Lightroom. Yo considero que el que nada teme, nada debe, además creo que me habrías dado permiso para subirla igualmente. Anteriormente no critique tus fotos porque yo no estuve alli para observar ese cielo en ese momento y en ese lugar, sin embargo, en este caso me atrevi a hacerlo. Si todos estos votos te apoyan, yo debo estar equivocado posiblemente, sin embargo, es mi punto de vista. No hay necesidad de hacer un drama a todo esto, no estoy llevando ninguna campaña en tu contra, si te pones a ver, he hecho comentarios similares a otras fotos inclusive en QIC. --Wilfredor (talk) 14:02, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Great scene. I've downloaded this and opened in Photoshop on a factory-calibrated monitor. The colours don't look unnatural (though I wasn't there). My only issue is it looks like you've been a bit over-generous with the "clarity" slider on Lightroom. Quick note: if your monitor is a wide-gamut one and you are looking at this in a web browser, there's a good chance the red will appear over-saturated because the browser isn't handling the colourspace properly. I don't think looking at an unprocessed raw file is fair, nor is legal to publish it without permission so it should be deleted imo. Colin (talk) 08:50, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
    Thanks for your assessment Colin!, I have reduced the contrast of the mid-tones following your suggesting to be more moderate with the clarity slider and uploaded accordingly a new version. Will definitely buy a new monitor and get it calibrated. Poco2 10:46, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

  • The motive has definitely a lot of "Wow inside", quality and light is at a high level, but Pictogram voting question.svg Question why did you crop the bottom? For me the crop is a bit unfortunate that way. --Tuxyso (talk) 15:43, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
    Why? because it is too ordinary and bussy, cars, signs and so on. In my opinion it loses its magic. If you don't believe me, I can upload the uncropped version, but only for information, I wouldn't change this nomination. Poco2 17:38, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
  • It has nothing to do with "believing" - I do not know the location and in most cases it is better to ground an architecture shot (besides it is a tele detail shot) otherwise ones get the impression that something is missing. It would be interesting to see the whole location and I look forward to an uncropped version just for informational purposes.

The problem with the nominee is that the crop is imho not audacious enough. At the bottom it looks a bit random to me. If you had cropped tighter without visible elements from the ground you could have accentuated the artistic structure of the building in a better way. --Tuxyso (talk) 20:50, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The reflections of the other picture are much more lively, this one is duller. I find the other one has a good composition, it shows the coloured parts of the building (this one showing the whole building might be better, but both are good imo). I agree with Ivar about the street lamp, it's disturbing. --Kadellar (talk) 13:07, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
    ...gone! Poco2 13:47, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
    ...and regarding the image being a bit duller, I agree with you. I improved it giving it a bit more contrast and a bit more of light. If I may also express my opinion: the reflexions here are not as nice as at the other one (due to the cloudes, although the gap between both pictures is only 2 minutes), I don't like the road and I am not fan of the shadow on it. That being said, it is a nice picture, as well. Poco2 03:51, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

For sure most of your BMW noms are nice, but the educational value (vs. advertising value) is imho very limited. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:16, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting question.svg Answer Categorizing my pictures as advertising is IMO a blow below the belt. I have also successfully nominated a couple pictures of Mercedes like this one. I just happen to live close to the BMW buildings and they are just fascinating to me. I see them rather as architecture masterworks, visited by millions of people every year, than just advertising. But, don't worry, I will refrain from nominating anything related to them Poco2 19:37, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
    Sorry Poco, probably my words were misunderstanding. I have not categorized your pictures as advertising. Most of them are good or very good architecture shots. My problem is the motive. As far as I know the "BMW Welt" was solely built for representation and advertising purposes. FP means giving those pictures a prominent place on Commons which might be in the case here not a good idea. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:36, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
    Well, I don't really care much about the official purpose of the building, it is one of the nicest modern architecture buildings I have seen. But don't worry, I will bring new subjects in the coming week from a bunch of countries in Asia. Poco2 08:40, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg weak oppose This crop is MUCH better than the previous one but the overall quality is not convincing. For sure: The shot was hand-held but with such a motive I would expect more details in the background areas. Pictogram voting question.svg Question Is it possible that you have nominated a very similiar shot about half a year ago? Or was it on QI? From a compositional viewpoint there is a lot of accentuated (but nearly empty) foreground due to wide-angle and deep shooting position. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:52, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
    I have nominated a couple of them in QI, check the category, but none here. This is the first nomination. Poco2 08:42, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

    The crop on left is exactly as in the existing FP; but the "cut" legs due to the bottom crop can be improved. I like this crop than the existing FP; but that seems more detailed. I prefer the edit. For me, your frame with a more generous crop at bottom (without "cut legs") and details as in Alves may ideal. :) JKadavoor Jee 08:44, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Here the flower is fully OOF. But yes; people have other opinions. JKadavoor Jee 07:27, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Thank you Muhammad for the lecture. Your assumption is right. My intention with this FPC was to propose a bee AND a flower as FPC. I wouldn't have propose this picture with the intention that only the bee is the subject. I thought that the title and the description would serve as hint about what is the subject of this shot.The case that Jkadavoor mentions was not similar. In that QIC the flower was clearly not in focus (and not eben complete) and therefore I accepted his argument , but this is not the case here, because the flower is in focus.

    In the Roman Catholic Church, three (and only three) archbishops are called "Patriarchs". They hold not a crozier, but a patriarcal cross. They are the archbishops of Jerusalem, of Venice, and... of Lisbon. It is a church in Porto and not Lisbon, but in Portugal. Maybe it is a beginning of an answer ? I don't know...--Jebulon (talk) 23:59, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
