Bobcat[edit]

I am writing regarding the picture you have placed in Commons - http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Bobcat2.jpg . We, with our friends from the Otryt Association (connected with the Bieszczady mountains), have decided to trace and mark the first in the Ukrainian Bieszczady didactic route (historical-natural scientific). We have been preparing it with the Ukrainians from Old Sambor, in which neighborhood the route is going to be placed. The route consists of ten boards, some of which are devoted to fauna and flora of the Bieszczady. We would like to use your graphics mentioned above on one of the boards. Of course, we will give information about your authorship.

And I have some request - is it possible sending me this photo in higher resolution (900x900 or 1200x1200)?

I look forward to hearing from you in the nearest future.

Please, answer by e-mail (patryk HERE-SIGN-"AT" samorzad.uw.edu.pl) or my discussion page (http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyskusja_Wikipedysty:Avadoro).

Best regards

  • Thank you very much, Calibas. But the "insect bar" is so high that I wonder if it will succeed. The problem is the harsh lighting. - Alvesgaspar 17:22, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Image Las Vegas NY NY Hotel[edit]

Hi Calibas, thank you for your comment to my picture on the QI Page.

But could you explain what your sentence means: "...some tweaking of the levels might soften up the lighting..." ? I really have no idea, but I'm very interested in everything that might help to make my pictures better. Talking about pictures in English is nothing that I do very often, so I'd be thankful for a easy explaination. :-)

And now to something completely different: Is your picture of the night heron taken with your Canon 70-300 mm lens? I'm looking for a lens at the moment, and it seems that I will make my decision between this one and the 70-200 mm 1:4 L. The 70-200mm is said to show more sharpness, but I really like your picture, it seems very sharp to me. --Flicka 18:39, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi. What brought this on? Lycaon 06:49, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks and questions[edit]

Thanks for your kindness. I’m new in Commons. The edition you made on my photo is great. The problem is that in my wiki I’ve been told that I had to upload the file with a small size and this way it’ll lose most of its quality. That’s the reason why I would like to give it a try by myself and apply the program you told me about on the original picture to see what results can I get. IgrexaparroquialStaMaría.jpg new version by me Could I submit the rejected picture once it’s fixed?? And the Church of Cambre, can I upload a new better version? And if I can’t make it better as much as you could, could I upload the improved version made by you? How should I do in each case? Finally, I would like to tell you that I took a look at your photo gallery and I would love to learn from you, you are an amazing photographer. Greetings. --Alma Gal 20:18, 14 November 2007 (UTC) (Alma in Galipedia)

Categorization/species galleries[edit]

Hi, while browsing some of your beautiful photos, I noticed you have added several plant and animal species to species specific dead-link categories (like your two recent QIS). It could be an idea to go through your photos and do the same things as you did here on them I think. Not the most interesting task perhaps, but it would be a pity if other users of Commons were unable to locate your very nice high-quality photos. -- Slaunger 10:24, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Lack of contrast[edit]

Thanks for taking the time of working on my image on the Annakirche: Detail of Glory of Virgin Mary by Daniel Gran - Annakirche2.jpg In short, you are 100% right. I realize my image is boring flat. Do you have any rule of thumb you can provide me with?

I have to admit that I have some problems with increasing contrast. I don't trust my notebook screen. In case of doubt, I connect my pc to my 60-inch full HD LCD tv to check for colors.

Valuable Image Proposal[edit]

Hi Calibas, I am working on a Valuable Image (VI) Proposal in my sandbox. I noticed your recent discussion at COM:QIC and i would like to hear your opinion about the idea? I thought of posting it on COM:VP once it has been fine-tuned a little. I am not a native writer and I think the language/formulations can be improved here and there feel free to do so if you like. Secondly, I am a real idiot at writing something in a clear, short and concise form. If you think it could be shortened down while still keeping the essence there I appreciate your comments. -- Slaunger 16:09, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi Calibas.
Thanks for the info. Yes, I know about this project and I'm looking at it from time to time, but it seems it has some difficulties to start as the first round still hasn't been launched. Also, at this level, the maps aren't included in the project but it may change for the further rounds, so I will see when the first round really starts.
Greetings. Sting 15:38, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Lotus flower image[edit]

HI Calibas, thanks for the comment on my offering. I might have a play with this (I've tried blurring the background to reduce background and cropping...not sure if I'm happy with it though), but I might be better off trying another shot and taking more care (camera off full-auto mode for a start!). Nice collection of images you've had acknowledged. - Peripitus 11:04, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Northern Mockingbird Image Editing Request[edit]

Would you mind if I create and upload a version of your Northern Mockingbird photo that is cropped in much tighter on the bird itself? I'll credit you as author and link to the original in the 'Other Versions' section. The reason for my request would be that I'm working on improving the Northern Mockingbird Wikipedia article, and I'd like to add an image to the taxobox that clearly illustrates the major identifying characteristics of the bird, even when viewed at thumbnail size. Your image seems like the best we have available that shows the Mockingbird's key features. Thank you. - Ken Thomas 01:54, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Reddit[edit]

Hi Calibas. On Commons:Featured_picture_candidates you wrote that you saw File:Rome - Vatican Museum - Spiral Staircase by Giuseppe Momo - 0673.jpg on reddit. Would you have a URL for me, so I can see it too? I'm definitely interested when my pictures are used. Thnx in advance! -- NormanB (talk) 10:58, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Thank You for the Wikipedia Picture[edit]

Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture. I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:

http://www.freeenglishsite.com/

I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/index.htm

2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/usa/index.htm

3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/lessons/index.htm Slang Dictionary link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/slang/Eslang_a.htm

Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.

Please share this free site with your friends. I hope all will enjoy the pictures and find the English information useful. Sincerely,  Duane Hurst in Utah, USA

Photo use[edit]

I am working with the Forest Service at the Spring Mountains NRA on their new interpretive center in Kyle Canyon. The new center will include several interpretive exhibits that aim to help visitors better understand the interconnected ecosystems of the Spring Mountains, and the role they play as stewards of this special place.

We came across your wonderful California King snake photo on Creative Commons and would like to incorporate it into the interpretive exhibits. I would just like to confirm your CC license that this is free for the Forest Service to use in their exhibits and that it should be attributed to "Calibas".

We are very grateful for your contribution to this project and hope that your image will help to inspire visitors to take a closer look at the incredible plants and animals around them. Please contact me at kdaley@aldrichpears.com thank you
