{{hidden image}}[edit]

Hi, I've created this template for the whole hiding-explicit stuff situation. Using a javascript box as opposed to having to click on a link is much better for usability, as you don't have to leave the review page to see the image. And of course it allows for a reason - its not just porn that is objectionable content after all. (Discussion of the eligibility probably should go on at COM:FPC, as that's where there has been prior discussion)--Nilfanion (talk) 23:12, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

The template isn't perfect in that it won't work in the QIC galleries, or perhaps more seriously in a VIC, due to the use of <gallery> at the first and not really nesting well in the VIC template. That said its a start, and it works ok at FPC and in the discussion part of QIC.
As for what should be eligible for promotion and what should be censored on nomination pages: My inclination (which I did express previously) is everything that is within Commons scope and meets our licensing requirements is eligible, and any image that someone has a reasonable objection to should be "hidden". I don't really have time to revitalise the discussion right now, but FPC (or the village pump) seems like the logical place to me; and yes the examples I gave earlier are a decent starting point for that.--Nilfanion (talk) 23:37, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Hm you are right on the QIC criteria not really being up to spec. My oppose is based on reviewing it like a photograph ultimately, to review an image as an artwork, and more importantly as a specific genre of artwork is harder and we don't want to have to define what a quality anime image (or oil painting or sculpture or abstract painting...) is. The comment about the headphone strikes me as simple enough, what artistic reason is there for including something with no apparent value to the composition (but unlike a photograph he has deliberately chosen to include as opposed to failed to remove it)? The other two point could possibly be ok, depending on what typical anime is like - does it have that dreamlike situation with the fake DOP or does it try to emulate photorealism. The QI criteria are restricted to photos, but should probably talk about the general principles of art, before giving more detail on how to apply it to photos. We don't need to broaden it to all art, as we are only interested in stuff that's useful for WM projects which is a restricted set of those. (Feel free to copy this somewhere if you want to start discussion).--Nilfanion (talk) 08:21, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Español: Le ruego que si revierte una edición mía en una página de comentario o discusión (File talk:Spider and fly April 2010-3.jpg) tenga al menos la cordialidad de comunicármelo. Gracias

--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 23:11, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Mas esse não é o local apropriado para comentar a foto. Por que não o fazes aqui? Parabéns pela vitória de Espanha! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:13, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Sobre si es lícito su manera de actuar, habría que hablar. ¿Se me censura por decir lo que pienso?--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 23:19, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Não o estou a censurar, somente a informá-lo sobre o local adequado para comentar a fotografia. Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:21, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
En este momento, yo si estoy a censurarlo y a criticarlo a usted por censurarme a mi al borrar mis palabras: Usted no tiene atribuciones para borrar mis comentarios si no son insultantes. Ni siquiera siendo usted administrador puede borrar un simple comentario. ¿A quien he insultado? ¿No he sido correcto? Por favor explíquese. ¿Sabe lo que hace? --Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 23:26, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Que a usted le parezca o no apropiado el espacio es su opinión. ¿Acaso es usted la referencia para decidir lo que se puede o no decir en una página de discusión?--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 23:29, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Deseo que el comentario permanezca. Me parece el lugar adecuado. Pienso que las imágenes de calidad están dominadas por un cierto amiguismo. Aquel que aprueba una imagen de otro, al final, se ve recompensado, por ese motivo me he expresado en el lugar que he considerado, sin hacer críticas mayores (cosa que ahora y por su participación, hago). ¿No tengo derecho a decir en una página de discusión mi opinión (http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File_talk%3ASpider_and_fly_April_2010-3.jpg&action=historysubmit&diff=41329045&oldid=41328935 ) y de hacerlo tan comedidamente como lo he hecho? ¿Como puede usted censurarme?--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 23:35, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
No hago comentarios donde usted dice porque no sé hacerlos ahí. Lo he intentado, pero no sé. Por no saber, ¿no se me puede permitir expresar lo que considero donde sé expresarlo?
Es evidente que provocaría que esa imagen fuese discutida, ¿puede explicarme usted (entiendo el portugués y sé hablarlo, aunque lo escribo con dificultad) cómo hacerlo?--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 23:42, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Sea como sea, su actitud es increiblemente reprobable--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 23:42, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

OBSERVO QUE HA VUELTO A BORRAR MIS PALABRAS, NOS VEMOS EN Commons:Village pump (aunque previamente he de buscar si hay un espacio para abusos de administradores). GRACIAS--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 23:50, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Le he respondido a User:Cookie lo siguiente y creo que es lo mismo que le debería responder a usted si me hubiese comunicado en su oportuno momento sus acciones y adjuntase alguna explicación: Comprendo. Gracias. Podría hacer filosofía sobre la cuestión e intentar defender mi postura, pero es absurdo hacer tal cosa, pues lo que dices es perfectamente coherente aunque pueda dejar mal parados a los que no se expresen en inglés, ya que las páginas de expresión de opiniones son en inglés, no así necesariamente otras.

Maps expertise[edit]

Hi Alves. Your expertise regarding maps would be helpful to inform this debate, if you're interested. --Elekhh (talk) 05:05, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi Elekhh. I made a short comment there but very much doubt it is really useful -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 11:13, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks for your comment and time invested in this: I think is very useful in providing a professional impulse to the debate, regardless of the ultimate outcome. But I believe the general issue is very important, as I've seen the same approach with other countries where ethnic discrimination is fought with manipulative maps. I am sure as Commons will evolve towards higher quality (?!) these issues will need to be clarified anyway. --Elekhh (talk) 04:15, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Good day!

Is the image that I was nominated so bad that you put on it a pattern? Dear Photographer, I do not believe that you are right. Осенняя мгла (talk) 11:36, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi Осенняя мгла, The FPX template is a way of avoiding a long list of oppose votes in pictures that have little chances of promotion. Anyway, it addresses the picture, not the photographer! In this particular case, the conditions are very difficult due to the lack of good lighting, and the use of a high ISO setting caused strong noise in the darker parts of the image. You should also be more carefull in the framing, trying not to crop important parts of the subject and keep the vertical lines vertical. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 15:00, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Hello ! According to the rules, and as you agreed with the term "branch", I changed the scope in VIC. Thanks for reviewing, anyway !--Jebulon (talk) 15:05, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Hi. I'm not running for VI, but you opposed to this nomination because of the scope. Following your remark, I changed the scope as requested by you, by adding "branch", then, according to the rules, I informed you (above). No comment nor answer by you here, on my talk page, or in the VIC page. Now time is over. I think it is not very fair. Some are asking about the death of VI, in my opinion your abstention here is a beginning of an answer...--Jebulon (talk) 22:40, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Mosquito[edit]

Mosquito is very good even if our colleagues don't think it is a QI. I have a 100 mm macro and have taken a few photographs of a Culiseta species but nothing approaching the quality of this image. May I ask the length of the extension tube that you used and the f/stop? Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 18:12, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Thanks you for your comments and support. I'm glad that someone was finally able to go beyond the surface. This photo was made with a Tokina macro 100mm and a 36mm extension tube (F/16, ISO 125, 1/100). But are you sure it is a Culiseta sp.? Because this was a quite small fly, when compared to the Culisetas I use to shoot. Please check this other view, where the wing venation is partially visible. Cheers, Alvesgaspar (talk) 21:09, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
  • I wasn't questioning the assignment of the individual in your photographs. I was comparing your pictures to mine. My pictures are of Culiseta impatiens, or so I think. If your insect is smaller than that species, I'm even more impressed. Thanks for the extension tube and exposure information. Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 23:36, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi Richard, thanks for the info. A shame it is so expensive! There is an old book with ALL insect families you might be interested in -> Insects (1970), by Donald Borror & Richard White (Peterson Filed Guides). What about the big decison? -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 18:31, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

      • Well, I have also retracted from my initial ideas of acquiring a FF (D700). I would have to trash my 18-200 lens (not very good, but quite useful and expensive) and spend too much money just to have cleaner photos. Not worth, for the moment. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 10:33, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Macro photos[edit]

Hello Alvesgaspar. Just wondering, what lens do you use for macro shots? Do you have a flash? And finally, do use manual focus for most shots or AF? --The High Fin Sperm Whale 03:15, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi, Finn Whale! Welcome to the fascinating (and rewarding) world of bug shooting! Yes, I have a dedicated 1:1 macro lens (a Tokina ATX-Pro 100 mm, a wonderful glass) and also use extension rings when necessary. Unfortunately light is seldom sufficient in macro photography and I have to use a flash quite often. There are much better solutions, like dedicated macro flashes and all types of permanent light sources and reflectors (ask Richard, he is the specialist in lighting). As for the camera settings, I have everything in manual mode when in macro, including focus. It is usually much easier to move the camera than to operate the focus ring. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 10:48, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
I did, but he retired the day before I asked him! Oh well. Thanks anyways. --The High Fin Sperm Whale 22:10, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for information.. I take this picture with a normal compact Kodak V-10 Camera.. Let's see if I can make a more big pixel picture.. It's nice to know you online.. NaidNdeso (talk) 14:15, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

  • If you are really interested in Photography, it will come a time when a better camera will be needed. In the meantime, you can learn a lot just by observing the FPC and QIC foruns, and training with your camera. Do we know each other in person?... -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 14:21, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Hello Alvesgaspar, What is the location of the picture? Very helpfull for the id. --Cephas (talk) 20:28, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

FPX and FPD[edit]

Hello Alvesgaspar. Relating to our edits here and here, is it really a good idea to add {{FPX}} and {{FPD}}? I think Ghabara had it pretty tough already, with every one of the six nominations FPXed or FPDed. It seems a bid redundant to add them both, IMO. Not condemning your actions, just want a second opinion on this. Thanks, --The High Fin Sperm Whale 04:36, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi, there is a fundamental difference between the two templates: while FPX can be removed by anyone with a support vote, that is not the case with FPD. What would we do if someone removed the FPX templates from those nominations? In short, FPX does not replace FPD and FPD cannot be removed. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 06:46, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
    • Yes, I see the point, but it seems a bit harsh to newcomers to get both. And the nomination gets removed by FPCbot in a day anyways, so does it really make that much difference? --The High Fin Sperm Whale 16:08, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
      • I think it does. Just imagine if someone removed the FPX template with a support vote. While the use of FPX may be considered as to have some subjectivity, that is not the case with FPD (unless is wrongly used, of course). Anyway, no one wants to humiliate newcommers. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 21:57, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Breves considerações sem importância[edit]

Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Manuel Reimóndez Portela - A Estrada - Galiza.jpg

(Não tem que você responder esta mensagem) Esteve eu pensando sobre a luz da foto. Ocorreu-se-me que quiçá você não observasse que o granito é branco. É um granito de alta qualidade, muito diferente do da base do busto (granito rosado). A qualidade do granito galego é altíssima e o granito branco reflecte muitíssima luz, pelo que, ao tirar uma foto a esse granito, o ceio sempre fica bem. Veja File:Manuel Reimóndez Portela.jpg

É possível que você já soubesse ou fosse consciente disto. É somente uma reflexão--Luis Miguel Bugallo Sánchez (talk) 18:15, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

  • Olá Luis, o problema não é a cor do granito mas a luz solar directa. Com uma luz mais difusa e suave (ao entardecer, por exemplo), o contraste seria menor. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 18:51, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
