Oppose[edit]

Why do you always vote for the opposition?, Do you have a problem with me? --Kasir (talk) 14:19, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

  • I don't know you, and I do not have any kind of problem with anyone (including you). My assessments for support or oppose are purely based on the photographs and their merits, I don't even check who is nominating or anything like that. So, if I feel a photograph deserves a oppose from me, I'll, whether it is nominated by you or any other user. I have the right to do so and so that's that. Hope this will clarify your doubts and you would assume good faith. Beyond this, don't expect any other response from me on this issue. --Dey.sandip (talk) 16:45, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

1880's photograph
The gateway to the tomb of Itmad-Ud-Daulah, situated in Agra, India.

Hello Sandip! Recently i am hunting down old historic images of India and uploading them here. I came across this one and wondered if it can be a featured picture? The image is of a high resolution and fits the criteria. But that's the only criteria i can check as i have little knowledge of photography. Hence though of taking your opinion before nominating it. §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {T/C} 08:01, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

... for your latest edit. I've observed that you vote quite often with "boring" or "no Wow" which is surely OK. But for the photographer it is much more useful to add some constructive clarifications what is missing for you with such a photo, as you've done in your last post. Please do not perceive an answer by me as an affront - I only was irritated about the term "boring" because I find the scenery quite interesting and the harsh light underlines imho the dry desert air. I hope everything is OK now?! --Tuxyso (talk) 14:23, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Tram FP[edit]

If you shot this as a raw file, could you please export it from CaptureNX with sRGB colourspace rather than AdobeRGB since this is intended for web use (the colours will not be displayed accurately to most people otherwise). Use AdobeRGB only for sending TIFF files to printers. If you shot it JPG, then it may still be worth converting but watch out for colour banding, and consider changing your camera setting back to sRGB or shoot raw. -- Colin (talk) 08:39, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
