About Maps[edit]

Hi Alvares, I really enjoyed your beautiful images. Its like coming to a small museum located in a quiet backwater. Have you any old portuguese map images of India, Goa or any Indian colony? It would make a nice addition to articles on India. Thanks, 210.212.173.157 04:19, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Thank you for the compliment. No, I don't have maps of the former portuguese territories in India but I'll look for it. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 09:29, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Fora de foco!?[edit]

Desculpe contestar mas o tag que vc colocou em: [1] não está correspondendo com a realidade. Pois embora a flor de primeiro plano esteja sem foco, a fotografia foi tirada com foco na flor do segundo plano! Danilo P (talk) 18:43, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Olá Danilo, que tal tentar outra vez de modo a que a flor mais próxima fique focada? Tal como está, será difícil alguém gostar deste primeiro plano. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 20:22, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Joaquim - sorry but French laws don't allow this one. Daft, I know, but they don't allow photographs of copyright buildings. Disneyland in the US is OK, as the US does have Freedom of panorama for buildings. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 06:22, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

  • OK, Michael, nothing we can do on that matter. Does it mean that all pictures of buildings from Disneyland Paris (including Cinderella castle...) will have to go? We may be talking about hundreds of them, if we also consider the other wikis! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 07:52, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
Yes, those on Commons that were taken in France will have to go. Images hosted on other Wikis such as the English Wikipedia may be OK if fair use can be claimed. That's not allowed here. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 17:56, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Tour Eiffel[edit]

Hi Joaquim,

I'm surprised too. I haven't checked before you told me. I knew this one Image:Tour_eiffel_at_sunrise_from_the_trocadero.jpg which has a superb composition and mood, but which is a bit short on technical side. I never wanted to do it, because it seems such a trivial shot that I thought someone would do/had done it... but apparently, no one has yet ! I'll try to shoot it myself if I have time. Benh (talk) 11:34, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

By the way, I haven't forgotten you... but weather hasn't been so nice over here for quite some time now... I've tried for one month every week end, and each time had very cloudy sky (I could try some Noodle Snack three exposures trick, but am not that skilled). I also missed my 17-55; sent back for repair. Now I got it back, but think the season isn't appropriate any more for a decent shot (sad leafless trees :( ). See you in March 09 ! Benh (talk) 21:46, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Opinion[edit]

Hi Joaquim, I would like your opinion of two images of mine. I'm sure whether to upload them to wikimedia or not, because I'm not convinced there good enough. http://massimo.catarinella.nl/IMG_6158.jpg http://massimo.catarinella.nl/IMG_6190.jpg Massimo Catarinella (talk) 19:41, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

  • I prefer the composition of the first, but its technical quality is poor, with obvious pixelation in the darker parts of the water and artifacts around the edges. The second is much better in technical terms and the colour patterns in the water are wonderfull. But there is also some pixelation in the water (in the left side) and some fringing due to sharpening. Shouldn't be too difficult to fix these flaws. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 20:21, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

white fringing in some of the grapes[edit]

Hi Alvesgaspar:

I'm trying to fix the white fringing in some of the grapes on the Coccoloba uvifera. But really, I can't to see the mistake. You could tell exactly where is the white fringing that you're watching. This would help me to fix it.

Thank's you --libertad0 ॐ (talk) 13:01, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Please look at the outline of the grapes at the left side of the bunch. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:30, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Commons:Photography critiques[edit]

Hi there. I have placed several of my photos on the critiques page, in order to see where I could improve om my technique. Some of these images failed at the Quality Images nominations page, due to their small size. However, I am interested in finding out about the actual image quality, and what would improve these shots. Your comments would be much appreciated. Just see the top page entry on the critiques page, under the heading "Miscellaneous Photographs". Thanks in advance, Elucidate (talk) 13:45, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

In fact, not a VI[edit]

Hi Alvesgaspar,

I noticed this an related edits. The individual images in a VIS are actually not considered valued images themselves. It is the Valued image set gallery, which you might want to categorize to a personal VIS category (if I were to do it). -- Slaunger (talk) 23:18, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

If I were to do the same hack, I would have 40 and not 25 VIs ;-) -- Slaunger (talk) 23:21, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
  • (edit conflict) Thank you, Slaunger, I still have to think how to organize it. Big Brother is watching you! ;-) -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:24, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
    • Yeah, keeping an eye of you because I know you want to beat me in the VI race using whatever means... ;-) -- Slaunger (talk) 23:29, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
    • And I will, after making you suffer a bit! Did you notice that I seldom nominate FP's to VIC? -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:39, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
      • Hey, I have not nominated any of my (three, lol) FPs for VI either! I am a gentleman. Anyway, its only one VI per scope, and just how many different scopes do you have in those FPs? Oh well, eventually I will loose, although I have high hopes for October 22-29, where I am going to Greenland again, hurray. -- Slaunger (talk) 23:44, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
        • As a naval officer it might interest you that I am going to be on this one. -- Slaunger (talk) 23:52, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
      • Well, I want to believe I'm a gentleman too. Just look at my last nomination (a few minutes old)! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:49, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
        • He, he. Yes indeed. -- Slaunger (talk) 23:52, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
      • I propose that, in our private competition, A VI set counts as much 3 ordinary VI (though that will benefict you) -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 00:04, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
        • Let's just count the VIs, it is simpler. Anyway, I see Lycaon as a more serious VI contributor than me. -- Slaunger (talk) 06:54, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Raising the bar[edit]

Salut Joaquim! Merci d'avoir attiré mon attention, il y a une semaine environ, sur la page Commons talk:Featured picture candidates et plus particulièrement sur le chapitre "Raising the bar". C'est effectivement une discussion très intéressante qui se dévelope là-bas. Je n'ai pas encore réagi, car à cause d'occupations professionnelles et autres, j'ai pour le moment peu de temps pour "travailler" sur Commons. Mais je tenais quand-même à vous laisser un mot pour vous remercier. Sincères salutations, Marc. MJJR (talk) 20:44, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

SVG help needed[edit]

Hi, I need some help fixing this. --Mr. Mario (talk) 01:41, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure what you want to fix. The illustration is a bit crude and still needs some work. For example: the legends should be all horizontal; the lines connecting the legends to the objects should be short and straight; the colours are too fancy and the outlines should be more discrete. As for the black boxes, they don't show in my svg reader. I have no idea why they show here. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 07:58, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

FPC closing[edit]

Hi Joaquim,

don't worry too much about FPC closing. I'm taking care of that (well, I try) and I'm confident that Simon has an eye on that too. I think you are busy enough on Commons already... If you ever see that FPC haven't been closed for 4-5 days, then you might begin to worry :) Benh (talk) 20:44, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Sorry Benh, that was just to give a hand (I must stop feeling responsable for the closing of FPC...). I've left a message in Dschwen page suggesting a bot to archive the FPX pictures, no answer until now -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:32, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

POTY[edit]

Caríssimo,

Por motivos vários, em particular motivos muito pessoais, estarei inactiva nos próximos tempos no Commons (e nas wikis em geral), e, por esta razão, totalmente indisponível para ajudar no POTY. Peço imensas desculpas, mas quando pensei que poderia dedicar o meu parco tempo apenas a esse projecto, não antevi a minha real (in)disponibilidade. Espero que não fiques aborrecido comigo por voltar atrás com a minha palavra, mas há muito pouco que eu possa fazer neste momento quanto ao assunto.

Um abraço, Patrícia msg 13:16, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Valued image scope[edit]

There seems to be some disagreement on VI scope. You opposed the Bald Eagle in flight one due to too narrow of a scope but yet you yourself nominate one (two threads above) with the scope "Graphosoma lineatum (mating)" as well as "[[Anthidium florentinum] (mating)". Can you explain this discrepancy? One species (your nom) can have a scope on a certain activity and yet another can't (my nom). While we're on VI images, since Bald Eagles can seemingly only have one scope, which of these is the best VI candidate: Image:Eagle on roots - crop 3 (430008061).jpg or Image:Haliaeetus leucocephalus2.jpg?

Article at pt.wikipedia which is a typo from delta-key[edit]

I just don't know enough pt (y/or any, actually) to see about getting the article pt:Turberaria deleted. I am quite certain that it is a typo copied from http://delta-intkey.com/angio/www/cistacea.htm and it should be Category:Tuberaria. See http://botany.si.edu/ing/INGsearch.cfm?searchword=Turberaria and http://botany.si.edu/ing/INGsearch.cfm?searchword=Tuberaria

Some time if you are bored or needing to perhaps do something productive or whatever the motivation, perhaps you could look into the deletion of this article? -- carol (talk) 19:26, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

  • But the article is a minimal stub! All it says is that "Turberaria is a botannical genus of the Cistaceae family"... Maybe you wanted to check if I can reaaly read Portuguese?... Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:34, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
No. What I think is that it is a paste error. That a list of names was pasted and articles were created from that list and one of the genera in the list was mispelled (and I showed a web site that has such a list with that particular genus misspelled). So, I think that the article should be moved (I guess not deleted) to pt:Tuberaria.
That web site has a few mispellings that I know of and probably some that I don't know of also. -- carol (talk) 23:23, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Good to see that you are still around and interested in things here enough to enter images at QIC. I think about this thread I retrieved from your archives and pasted here often. Just for the hell of it, after finding another mis-spelling at delta-key I used the search engine with the mis-spelled word and pt.wikipedia is the first link in the search results.

pt:Keetlia is the word today. If it is not too much bother and since it is so obvious to me that a software made those stub pages from lists of species found at that web site, if you could leave word where ever the pt plant people read things, not all of the mis-spelled species but many of them get corrected here and should be easy to find for the larger families. Genera of Rubiaceae is a page I pasted from those lists. The edit history is full of either spelling repair or dealing with a name that is shared. http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Genera_of_Rubiaceae&diff=16332026&oldid=16321311 <-- todays.

If you could possibly tell them that much of the task of finding the mis-spelled genus names has been done here -- I will probably continue to think about pt.wikipedia everytime I find one, but I will also think that there is a chance that they know of the problem and of at least a partial solution for many of them. -- carol (talk) 07:11, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

In addition, thank you for moving that original one. Seriously. I never checked on it and when I did today and it was moved already, I got an honest smile.
Perhaps I should/could just move them myself when I find them? Not knowing the Portuguese to initiate this prevents me from thinking about it too much.

"nome do género errado" <-- I could paste this, heh. Thanks y good day ;) -- carol (talk) 18:27, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Umbel[edit]

Hi Joaquim
I found your beautiful photo of an umbel. I would like to include it in a video (for YouTube) to illustrate a phrase in a poem by Rimbaud. YouTube does not require licences, so is it sufficient for me to add your name in the credits (in the description)?
Thanks

  • Thanks for your attention. According to the terms of the license, it will be sufficient to mention "Wikimedia Commons", plus the name of the auhtor. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 10:49, 9 December 2008 (UTC)


Thanks :-)
The video is here Voyelles
