    • Ja, sieht sehr gut aus. Danke auf alle Fälle für die Nominierung. Habe mich sehr gefreut darüber, vorallem weil ich mir nicht so sicher war ob ich es selbst nominieren soll. Du hast übrigens fantastische Makro Aufnahmen auf deiner Seite. Ich nehme an du verwendest das MP-E 65 von Canon (laut Exif Daten). Was für ein Stativ benutzt du dazu?

Hello ChMehl

Thank you very much for your help. The problem with the photo of Benasque is that I lost the original photos, son I can't do anything now. But I'll try the software that you told me. Miguel303xm 22:14, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello Christian, I just wanted to compliment you on your compilation photo of this section of the Colorado river. It is a remarkable shot for it's beauty and perspective. I'm most curious to know what camera & lens you used for this? You may contact me at anoni_moose@bell.net Best Regards, Mike!

Alcatraz Island from Pier 39[edit]

Also ich finde das Bild, vorgeschlagen auf QI, jetzt nicht allzuknapp beschnitten, aber mich stoeren die vertikalen Schwaden im Himmel, die einem genau zeigen, wo die sechs Hochformatbilder aufgenommen wurden. Die Korrektur der Vignettierung und auch die Anpassung der Belichtung, da ist der Stand der Technik inzwischen weiter fortgeschritten. Apropos, demnaechst soll Hugin 0.7.0 rauskommen ;-) -- Klaus with K 20:55, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Das ist eine ältere Aufnahme von mir und damals hab ich leider noch nicht gewußt, das man die Einzelbilder mit den gleichen Belichtungseinstellungen aufnehmen muß :( So hab ich halt selbst mit den ganzen nachträglichen Belichtungskorrekturen nur dieses Ergebnis bekommen. -- Chmehl 07:52, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Nein, mit aktueller Software (ich meine damit Hugin 0.7.0, dass in der spaeten beta-Phase ist) muß man die Einzelbilder nicht mit der gleichen Belichtungseinstellung aufnehmen. Was dem Programm hilft, die Belichtungen gegeneinander abzugleichen, ist ein Ueberlapp zwischen den Bildern von 30-50%. Ein manuelles pre-processing ist eigentlich nicht mehr erforderlich. -- Klaus with K 10:55, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Use of Photo[edit]

Dear Christian,

My name is Bernadette Simpson and I am writing to you to tell you about a project I am working on. I am a teacher and have been living and teaching in Egypt for almost ten years now. Currently, I am working on a children's book about Egypt. The book is written in English and is intended not only for the millions of school children in Egypt who are learning English but also for travelers, young and old, who have special memories of their time in Egypt and for children around the world who wish to learn more about modern day Egypt.

I plan on self publishing - that is, paying for the printing and doing all the marketing, etc. by myself. As you may imagine, this is quite an undertaking. The book contains many beautiful photographs of life in Egypt. I took as many of the photos as I could myself but I would not have been able to complete my project without the contributions of photographers like yourself who have shared their work under the Creative Commons Attribution licenses. I am immensely grateful for these generous artists!

I hope to use the photo Great Egret, Egretta alba that you have posted. You have captured a fantastic image of a bird common to Egypt! I am writing to check with you that you are agreeable to sharing this photo with me for my book. If you can send me contact information and once my editing is complete, I will send you digital files of the page your photo appears on, as well as other pages that may be relevant, including the credits page.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Bernadette bernadmovies@yahoo.co.uk

Hi Chmehl, I'm interested in resizing and using your picture of Turret Arch (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Turret_Arch_MC.jpg) (overlayed with some text) for a campaign to protect Red Rock country in Utah from Oil and Gas development. Would this be OK with you? The image would be used for a banner advertisement driving people to a petition page setup by a nonprofit conservation organization. Thanks!

Feel free to use it. I would appreciate if you could send me the final banner via email since I am always curious how my pictures are used. Chmehl 05:49, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Here you go! http://www.therainforestsite.com/clickToGive/home.faces?siteId=4 If you don't see it at the bottom, try reloading the page. This ad has been enormously successful in generating petitions to save this land. Thanks!

Thanks for the link! I like the banner :) Chmehl (talk) 21:27, 1 July 2008 (UTC)


Hello Chmehl, I'm also interested in using a photo of yours, "Budapest at Night From Gillert Hill." I will be using it for my non-profit, free travel guide website BigBoyTravel.com. The site is new, but basically I use it in my free time to make free walking tours with maps for traveler to use. The photo will be located at www.bigboytravel.com/europe/hungary/budapest[1], the page is under construction, however, I just loaded your image so you can get an idea of how it will be used. It is also linked back to your wiki user profile page, please let me know if another website would be better. I believe I read you bought your first professional camera just 3 years ago, your photos are great and look better than most people's photo who have been do it their whole careers. Nice work. Thank You, Jon Miller Jon@bigboytravel.com --Jonathanleighmiller (talk) 08:31, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

...[edit]

Hi,

I've never taken the time to look carefully at your pictures. They are trully incredible. I remember that picture of SF seen through the golden bridge which didn't make it through to FP status (which I'm very sad about), and the many panoramas of many valley in US, but the rest is also superb I believe.

I nominated one of your picture on FPC, and will do so for several of them (not at same time ;) ).

Hope you'll keep contrbuting for long. Benh (talk) 22:03, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your words about my pictures. They keep me going! I have a lot of other pictures on my hard drive that just wait for being uploaded...
I just had a look at your panoramas and I find the view over Paris and the Louvre pano truly superb. These pictures make me want to go to Paris some time.
Thanks also for the nomination, let's see what the other users think! Chmehl (talk) 06:45, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Hi again. And thank you too :) In case you haven't seen, we are wondering if you could fix your picture (uneven sky and poterization). I think left part on the sky is darker and we can do nothing about it, but posterization needs a fix IMO. Benh (talk) 18:11, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
And the shadow of the tripod on the left side is disturbing, too. Maybe you can fix this as well --Simonizer (talk) 22:47, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
I uploaded a new version Image:Hooker Valley Pano MC edit1.jpg. I think the posterization should be better now but still not optimal. There is hardly anything I can do about the uneven sky. It is a very wide field of view and the sky just does not have the same color in all viewing directions. I think I shouldn't have used the polarizer when taking this image :( I also tried to brighten the sky a bit but this increases the posterization in the very fine color gradient of the sky. However, there is also good news: I was able to clone out the tripod :). What do you think of the new version? I could also supply you with the raw files if you want to give it a try. Chmehl (talk) 19:33, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Hmmm. The new version is less sharp and little bit washed out --Simonizer (talk) 09:31, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
OK, I updated it again: Image:Hooker Valley Pano MC edit1.jpg. What do you think of this version? Chmehl (talk) 12:38, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, very good --Simonizer (talk) 15:51, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
OK, I nominated the edit as an alternative version. Chmehl (talk) 16:57, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Hi again Christian, I was just wondering if you used any polarizer filter when taking this picture ? Thanks Benh (talk) 11:35, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I used a circular polarizer. Chmehl (talk) 12:07, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
This may explain the uneven sky (but I still agree that left part of the sky is darker). I read somewhere that using polarizer filters on multipictures panoramas is not recommended, but may be wrong (I've never tried). Benh (talk) 13:40, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I also think that the polarizer increased the effect of the uneven sky. Maybe I shouldn't have rotated the polarizer to the angle where the polarization effect is at its maximum. I think a few degrees before or after the maximum can still give you the deep blue sky and the richer and intenser look of the green. At the same time the sky would be more even. I will try to experiment a bit when I am going to the mountains this summer and let you know my results. Chmehl (talk) 14:05, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
I'd be very interested to know (I'm considering buying a circular polarizer filter, but since I take mostly multi pictures panoramas, I wonder if it will be a good investment). Thanks for your explanations :) Benh (talk) 14:56, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Image:Fira and the Old Port MC.jpg[edit]

Hi Christian,

I can't fault your image :) or maybe 50mpix was too much for me to scrutinize ? ;) Incredible pic ! Tonight, I'm going to close some FPC, but tomorrow, I think I'll nominate it.

I've set up a mediawiki at work. As far as I remember, there are two limits for the max size of a file that can be uploaded. One is for warning only, but the other is in the php code if I remember right. So I don't know any workaround for now. I'll have a check at work tomorrow.

Oh by the way, I've bought a circular polariser filter. B+W thing. I'm happy with it, results are incredible... I can't wait to visit Provence (in 2 weeks) to try it on great sceneries :). Now I think I understand why your sky was uneven on the Hooker valley pic. effect depends on the angle to the sun... the wider your field of view, the stronger the contrast. turning the polariser to minimize effect could help I think, but very little IMO. I already see the uneveness on a single shot at 10mm on my 400D. Do you agree ? -- Benh (talk) 22:11, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I can also see the uneveness in a single shot at 10mm. I think that on a clear day it might be better to take the picture without polarizer. When you have clouds on the sky (where the uneveness is also not that obvious) the polarizer makes an incredible difference---I love the contrast on the clouds that is generated by the polarizer :) --Chmehl ( ) 06:29, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
I wonder if there's an angle which would give consistent results across the horizontal field of view. I love the contrast between sky and clouds too :) My roomate and I found that shooting skies with the CP filters on sunsets make the clouds brighter than sky when they were actually darker. simply amazing ! Oops by the way, I forgot to check the mediawiki conf at work. I'll get back to you soon. Benh (talk) 10:17, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi again, I checked the MediaWiki setting at work. There are two ways of setting limits for file size that can be uploaded

  1. editing php.ini file
  2. setting $wgMaxUploadSize variable appropriatly on mediawiki (can't be > the one on php.ini).

There's also a $wgUploadSizeWarning which sets a limit above which only a warning is triggered.

Anyways there's not much one of us can do to change them :) Benh (talk) 08:19, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

OK, Thanks for the effort! Maybe at some time in the future I can upload the full resolution image... Chmehl (talk) 09:39, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Russian offices in Austria[edit]

Hi Christian, I have a somewhat unusual request for assistance which you may be able to help with, maybe not. On English Wikipedia, I am working on an article/list of Diplomatic missions of Russia, and subsidiary articles, and I am in need of photos of:

  • Embassy of the Russian Federation in Austria, Reisnerstrasse 45-47, 1030, Wien
  • Permanent mission of Russia to the OSCE and International Organisations, Erzherzog Karl Strasse 182, 1220, Wien
  • Consulate-General of Russia in Salzburg, Bürglsteinstrasse 2, 5020, Salzburg
  • Trade Representative of Russia in Austria, Argentinierstrasse 25-27, 1040, Wien
  • Russian Cultural Institute, Brahmsplatz 8, 1040, Wien

Might you be in the position to be able to help with photos of these representations of Russia in Austria? Or perhaps you can point me towards someone who may be able to help with these photos? Any assistance you can give would be appreciated. Cheers --Russavia (talk) 04:28, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi Russavia, I think I can help you with the four offices here in Vienna. I could do a tour this weekend and photograph them. The office in Salzburg is a bit difficult since I am not going there regularly. I will let you know once I have uploaded some images. Cheers --Chmehl (talk) 07:50, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
Hi Christian, thanks for your reply. Your help is appreciated, but there is no rush on this. I have added a link to the to embassy above, to show you a photo of what the embassy is. Apparently there is a Russian Orthodox Cathedral next door to the embassy, if you are able to get a pic of that also, it would be great. I will hunt for someone in Salzburg who may be able to get that one. Thanks again mate, cheers (Scotty) --Russavia (talk) 01:12, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Image:Remarkables view MC.jpg[edit]

Hi,

I wanted to nominate this beautiful pano of yours on FPC when I noticed some flare on the right side. Do you think you could remove them ? I think I could but prefer the author to do it so quality won't be affected at all. Thanks ! Benh (talk) 18:36, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Benh, do you mean the scattered light coming from the right side, similar as in Image:Jalovec northside MC.jpg? The scattered light reduces the contrast and I'm not sure how to remove this. If you know how to do this I could make you a tiff file of this image available in the evening. Chmehl (talk) 06:25, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Hi Christian, sorry for delay... I had a look again, I just noticed the flare are actually balloons... I need sleep :) I will nominate it on FPC to see how it stands the reviews. Benh (talk) 20:10, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
 :)) Yes, just give it a try. I am interested to see what the other users think. Tomorrow I am heading to California, I hope to get some nice shots with my new 50D in Yosemite NP, Sequoia NP, and in San Francisco! Chmehl (talk) 20:33, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Featured Picture template[edit]

Hi there. I thought you might find the following templates interesting.

Cscr-featured.svg This user took the featured photo [[{{{1}}}]].

With this template, you can show which Featured Pictures you have uploaded to Commons.

Alternatively, you can use this template:


Cscr-featured.svg This user has uploaded featured pictures on Commons.

Here you can say exactly how many Featured Images you have uploaded to Commons. You simply add the number of uploaded FPs to the template.


I have also created two other templates for Valued and Quality images, which can be found here and here. What do you think? Could it catch on? Elucidate (talk) 14:54, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi, that's certainly a nice and useful template. Thanks for implementing it. Do you now about an automatic way to count the number of featured pictures, quality pictures, etc... Chmehl (talk) 14:40, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
You mean by use of a graph and several image specific categories? Elucidate (parlez à moi) Ici pour humor 14:58, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
No, I mean something more sophisticated, like e.g. filtering all featured pictures by the username. I don't know how this could be implemented but maybe it is possible... Chmehl (talk) 20:06, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi, of course you can use the pictures. The license only requires some sort of attribution, like for example as you mentioned by placing my name in the corner of the image. Please use "Photo by Christian Mehlführer". It would also be nice if you put somewhere on your page a link to my user page here on Wikimedia Commons. --Chmehl (talk) 06:12, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Tilt[edit]

Hallo! Bin zwar kein Meteorologe, aber eigentlich sollten die Wolkenunterseiten in der Tat zumindest lokal in etwa auf einer Ebene liegen. Aber aus eigener Erfahrung meine ich zu wissen, dass einem Wolken manchmal einen Streich spielen koennen, weil oft die raeumliche Tiefe der Wolkenformationen Horizontalen vortaeuscht, welche nicht parallel zur Bildebene liegen (also auch von hinten nach vorne verlaufen). Na ja, aber der Anstieg vonn 4000 auf 6000m ist natuerlich ein gutes Argument. Bist Du eigentlich nur am rumreisen und Fotos schiessen?! --Dschwen (talk) 21:03, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Schaun wir mal ob noch andere Leute eine Meinung zu dem Bild haben. Ich werd mir das morgen abend auf alle Fälle nochmal in den Panoramatools genauer ansehen, vielleicht find ich ja doch noch einen Anhaltspunkt nachdem ich das Foto ausrichten kann...
Rumreisen im Sinne von Urlaub mach ich eigentlich immer nur im Februar :-) Aber ich hab das Glück das ich oft auf Konferenzen fahre, an die ich dann immer wieder mal einige Tage als Zeitausgleich anhängen kann :-) Deswegen gibts so viele Fotos von den unterschiedlichsten Gegenden hier von mir... --Chmehl (talk) 05:07, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Use of your picture[edit]

Dear Christian,

I work for the french Museum of natural history. We are updating the multimedia devices in the Grande Galerie de l'Evolution and one of this device treats about the rainforest of South America. I'm looking for pictures and found your picture of Bradypus on Wikimedia :

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:MC_Drei-Finger-Faultier.jpg

There are some stuffed specimens in the Gallery which represent the rainforest, and for every specimen we would like to show a picture of the animal in his natural area (picture attached). This is a non-commercial use, our purpose is to show how rainforests are threatened by human activities.

Do you agree if we use your picture in this device ? Of course your name will appear in the device.

We would be very pleased to invite you at the Grande galerie if you go to Paris once a time.

Thank you,

Best regards,

Ingrid Verleye

Colorado River Brücke[edit]

Hallo Chmehl,

auf der deutschprachigen Seite für die Kandidaten für exzellente Bilder steht derzeit dein Bild zur Wahl:

Dort ist kürzlich eine Diskussion darüber entbrannt, dass die Verzerrungen die durch das Stitching hervorgerufen wurden die Realität massiv verfremden würden. Ich teile zwar diese Auffassung nicht und diverse Luft- und Satellitenaufnahmen zeigen, dass eine kleine Einbuchtung in der Uferlinie dafür verantwortlich ist (und nicht wie behauptet die optische Verzerrung), dass es am rechten Bildrand so aussieht, als würde der Fluss abzweigen, was er natürlich nicht tut. Vielleicht kannst Du dazu kurz was sagen wenn du magst. Aber Vorsicht: es ist die Höhle des Löwen ;) Viele Grüße Wladyslaw (talk) 12:03, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Hallo Christian,

ich würde mich gerne selbständig machen und dein Bild (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:MC_Rotfeuerfisch.jpg) als Logo in schwarzweiß nehmen.(Bildauschnitt mit Fisch+ Firmenname) Auf der Website würde ich das Bild in Farbe stellen wollen. Da könnte ich auch gerne dein Copyright als mouseover machen. Wäre das in Ordnung oder bist du nicht mit einverstanden?

Danke für Rückinfo

Ist ok wenn du das so machst. Poste mir doch bitte dann den Link von deiner Webseite hier. --Chmehl (talk) 13:06, 2 October 2009 (UTC)


Hallo Christian,

vielen Dank erstmal. So würde die Seite mit deinem Bild aussehen. Name von dir hab ich als Title drauf gemacht aufs Bild- Logo ist dann genauso in schwarz weiß. www.kk-aquaristik.de wäre die Seite- wenn es wie gesagt ok für dich ist- lass ich es so. oki?

Profile size and activity criterion for Commons:Meet our photographers[edit]

Dear member of Commons:Meet our photographers,

Two issues have recently been raised at Commons talk:Meet our photographers:

Profile size creep
The page is becoming increasing cluttered due to a tendency among some members to make personal profiles, which are unreasonably large. You are kindly requested to consider the size used by your profile and consider if it has a reasonable size. Note that the same message is being send to all members, so it is up to you to use your own good judgement in this. We are not interesting in setting up exact quantitatve rules. It should be a matter of common sense.
Activity criterion
It has been suggested to introduce an activity criterion in addition to the minimum 10 FPs criterion to be included on the list. You are kindly requested to voice your opinion on this proposal.

Zur Informationen[edit]

Hallo Christian,

ich habe mir erlaubt, drei deiner Fotos auf meiner Homepage einzubinden: http://www.erdikon.de/fotos/tierwelt/gemeiner-schwarzleguan

Hoffe die Urhebernennung ist so für dich in Ordnung (im Popup direkt unter dem Foto). Andernfalls werde ich das natürlich noch ändern. Falls du eine Homepage hast, kann ich auch gerne noch einen Link unterbringen.

Danke für die schönen Fotos. Grüße, Marco


Hallo Marco,
die Urhebernennung ist für mich ok, freut mich das meine Fotos eine Verwendung finden :-)
Eine kleine Anmerkung hätte ich aber doch: Kannst du den Ausschnitt der Fotos die im Preview gezeigt werden ändern? Würde vermutlich besser aussehen, wenn die Köpfe der Leguane nicht abgeschnitten sind...
Grüße, Christian
Chmehl (talk) 07:51, 24 February 2010 (UTC)


Leider ist der Ausschnitt momentan noch nicht frei wählbar. Die Gallerie ist noch nicht ganz ausgereift, aber ich arbeite daran und sobald ich eine entsprechende Funktion implementiert habe, werde ich den Ausschnitt anpassen.
Danke nochmal!

You have some great photos. May we have permission to use the following attribution when displaying your photos on our website, www.LightfortheDay.com: "Photo courtesy of Christian Mehlführer, Wikimedia Commons" The more I read the full texts of the licenses, it becomes unclear whether we have to have links and references to licenses in our caption, which we generally do not have. Thank you for your consideration. LightfortheDay.com is non-commercial and has no advertising. Sincerely, Paul Crawford, Montgomery, Alabama

Hi Paul, its ok for me if you put the attribution you mentioned. Feel free to use any of my photos for your website. Sincerly, Christian. Chmehl (talk) 19:51, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Request for Permission to use Yellow-eyed Penguin Photos[edit]

Hello,

I work for the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA and I'd be interested in using your photos for our new penguin exhibit. They would be used on an interactive educational kiosk.

Alice ahsieh @ lbaop.org Exhibit Graphic Designer Aquarium of the Pacific 65.255.201.35

Photo usage[edit]

Hi, I've been working on a small game built around animal quizzes and I wanted to let you know I've used one of your pictures.

I found your picture here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Yellow-eyed_Penguin_MC.jpg

And I attributed the picture like this: Christian Mehlführer with this link: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Chmehl and also added a link to the license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5/deed.en

I hope you're happy with it, please let me know if this is not the case. You can find the game here: http://apps.facebook.com/animalalbum Or through here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/AnimalAlbum/156339584490672

Kind regards, Garfunkel Jansen (talk) 21:24, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

P.S. Thanks for taking the picture and making it available.

Hi, thanks for letting me know. The attribution is absolutely fine. Kind regards, Chmehl (talk) 21:35, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
Hi again :) In the meantime the game has grown and changed a lot. I wanted to make sure you were still ok with me using the picture. Also, because I want to make sure there's no misunderstanding, you are the original photographer correct? It sometimes happens that another person simply takes a picture from somebody else and uploads it to wikipedia with a license to distribute. Seems very unlikely, but I just want to make sure.
There is more information on the game here, including a short video that tells a little bit about the background: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/238178285/animalalbum
I also have a demo version of the game available so you can see for yourself in what way the pictures are presented: http://dromedarydreams.com/index/demo/0-8
Please let me know if I have your permission, if the picture is yours and if you want a different attribution.
With kind regards, Sjors Jansen (all.animalalbum@gmail.com) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Garfunkel_Jansen
Hi, I confirm that the picture was taken by myself. You. Still have the permission to use the picture with the above attribution. Very nice game and interesting project btw. Kind regards Chmehl (talk) 20:54, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
