Thank you so much :-) --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 14:57, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Jo, Glueckwunsch. Hoert sich nach einer spannenden Aufgabe an, die ja wohl ziemlich in Deinem Interessengebiet liegt. Hoffendlich bleibt da noch Zeit zum Fotografieren :-). --Dschwen (talk) 16:06, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Daniel, ja, ich freue mich schon riesig auf diese neue Herausforderung. Und mal sehn, wieviel Zeit mir hier noch bleibt. Ich versuche ja auch noch ab und an, einen neuen Artikel in der deutschsprachigen Wikipedia beizutragen. Zum Glück sieht meine Frau das ganz gelassen, wenn ich dann auch noch am frühen Sonntagvormittag an irgendeinem Tümpel sitze, um Haubentaucher vor's Objektiv zu bekommen ;-) Ich schick' dir per Emailfunktion mal meine neuen Kontaktdaten zu. Yellowstone habe ich für dieses Jahr fest eingeplant… vielleicht lässt sich ja bei der Gelegenheit ein Wiedersehen arrangieren. Wirst Du im August nach London fliegen? --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 16:32, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
Ich habe eine Scholarship beantragt. Wenn ich die kriege bin ich bestimmt dabei. Yellowstone hoert sich gut an. Wir sind jetzt erstmal 1-2 Monate in einem temporaeren Appartment und suchen uns ein Haus. Du bist herzlich eigeladen einen Zwischenstop (mit Uebernachtung) zu machen! --Dschwen (talk) 16:44, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Und das Fußvolk drängelt sich im Europaparlament herum und knipst Politiker. Die Welt ist ja so ungerecht! --Ralf Roleček 16:46, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Es war auch ne gute Aktion. Nicht nur die Fotos. Die Zusammenarbeit von Leuten, die sich nie vorher gesehen habe, Gespräche mit Politikern, sowas ist auch wichtig. --Ralf Roleček 17:28, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

File:Blick auf das Kraftwerk Zolling bei München aus der Vogelperspektive.jpg[edit]

Hello Frank!

Did you take more aerial photographs from this flight over the East of Bavaria? This one's a nice image and it would be a great thing to have more of such kind. If you plan to upload new ones, you can contact me on my talk page in order to get a little support (e.g. categorization) by me. Best regards, High Contrast (talk) 14:38, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thanks a lot for your feedback :-) I wish I had taken more images. This one was the only (out of 3–4 that I took in a row) that was worth uploading. Only seconds after I took this shot, the plane crossed the clouds. I was just fascinated by the beautiful view and I hope I got the name of the plant right. Can you confirm that it's "Kraftwerk Zolling"? --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 14:54, 14 February 2014 (UTC) P.S. Oh, and many thanks for adding the category. I thought something like this might exist, just couldn't find it.
Ah, I see, ok. Yes, this is the Zolling-Power-Plant. In the background there is also the Ohu-NPP visible. --High Contrast (talk) 15:18, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
Wow, I didn't realize that there's also a nuclear powerplant in this shot. Thanks a lot!! --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 15:48, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
Hey High Contrast, after the image got featured on Flickr Explore over the weekend, I've now nominated it as featured picture on Commons. Best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 16:39, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Wiki-Videos, Wikimania submissions[edit]

Hallo Frank, mir wurde von mehreren de.Wikipedianern gesagt, dass Du Dich auch schon sehr viel mit Videoproduktion für Wikiprojekte beschäftigt hast und auch zur WikiMania kommst, deshalb wollte ich Dich auf meine Submissions hinweisen:

Das erste ist für Dich dann wahrscheinlich nichts Neues mehr, umso mehr hast Du vielleicht Lust und Ideen, bei dem zweiten mitzumachen – auch wenn die Submission vielleicht nicht gewählt wird, könnten wir doch trotzdem etwas auf die Beine stellen!? Hast Du noch Tipps, wo ich die Submissions noch verbreiten sollte, damit sie von potentiell Interessierten auch wahrgenommen werden? --BR, Jan S. (media) 09:31, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Jan, bitte entschuldige meine späte Antwort. Das Thema Videos für Wikipedia habe ich größtenteils aufgeben. Zum einen, weil ich mich einfach mehr für die Fotografie interessiere, zum anderen, weil hier auf Commons durch restriktive Videocodecs die meisten Menschen ausgeschlossen werden. Deine beiden Einreichungen für die Wikimania habe ich mir aber angeschaut und ich wünsche dir bei der Durchführung allen erdenklichen Erfolg. Ich werde vermutlich in London sein und freue mich auf ein persönliches Kennenlernen. Herzliche Grüße aus Kalifornien, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 16:20, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

How to ID a bird?[edit]

Bird at Aquatic Park at dusk.jpg

Hi Frank, I recently saw two or three of this incredible bird at Aquatic Park in Berkeley. It was darting around similar to a swallow at dusk -- I originally thought it was a swallow. But it was only flying at the edge of the lake, and when it saw a fish it would dive for it -- dropping like a stone from maybe 4m up, splashing into the water, and then flying away. While flying, its head was dropped down, as it looked for...fish, I assume.

How would you go about identifying a bird like this? I tried a few web sites I found, but none seemed very helpful. Any tips? Also pinging Kaldari, who showed me the iNaturalist app I told you about. -Pete F (talk) 01:53, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Pete, from all I can tell, this looks like a Tern. There are a couple of groups on Flickr that you could engage with. Other than that, the people at w:de:Wikipedia:Redaktion Biologie/Bestimmung might be able to help. --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 03:52, 23 September 2014 (UTC) 
Looks very likely, thank you! I will submit that on iNaturalist and see if that level of detail elicits a response. I may try the dewp group too -- do you think they would mind conversing in English, or is that a job for Google Translate? Many thanks for the suggestion! It was a beautiful bird, I'd love to know more about it. -Pete F (talk) 04:15, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
They should be able to respond in English as well. I'm actually surprised that no such place exists on the English Wikipedia. Might be time to get it started ;-) The only other group I could think of would be the Audubon Society. I just went on a tour to the Farallon Islands with them last Sunday. They're very knowledgeable about local birds. --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 04:20, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Aha -- somebody else already came to the conclusion there: [1] Thanks again! -Pete F (talk) 04:18, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

The topic of our contest is "Digital Society". I discovered that your video "Wikipedia tutorial - How to make links" is included in the German article called Screencast. Therefor I want to invite you to participate with this video in the contest. The procedure is very easy: You would just have to add the template {{Video für Wikipedia-Artikel 2014}}. Obviously, if you have other video material consistent with the topic "Digital Society", you are wellcome to participate with it as well. --NSm (VWA) (talk)

Schönes Käsebild[edit]

wenn nur nicht die Reifetemperatur um 2-3° zu hoch gewesen wäre. Erkennbar an den ausgetrockneten Bereichen die dadurch entstehen und dass u.a. auch die Luftfeuchtigkeit unter 85% im Reifekasten war. Tja, Zeit ist offenbar alles, langsam Reifen kostet Platz und somit Geld. Mit solchen Tricks kann man die Reifezeit von 2 Wochen auf eine Woche senken, leider ist das Ergebnis dann nicht das, was man sich unter einem wirklich cremigen Weichkäse vorstellt. Macht nix, wird schon noch, inzwischen gibt es ja sogar ein paar trinkbare Weine bei euch. ;-) --Hubertl (talk) 19:39, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Hey, danke für das Feedback. Welchen Käse meinst Du? Den Red Hawk oder den Humboldt Fog? Beste Grüße --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 20:26, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
den mit dem schwarzen Hintergrund, siehe unten, das ist der Red Hawk. Der mit dem roten Hintergrund, an dem sieht man auch deutlich, dass die Temperatur zu hoch war, Cream Cheese sollte keine Löcher haben, er soll nur cremig sein. Aber wie gesagt, ganz sicher Kritik auf hohem Niveau. Passiert in der Zwischenzeit auch bei uns, es geht nur noch um Output. Ich hab mich ein paar Jahre mit Käsen auseinandergesetzt und habe selbst mit Rohmilch gekäst. Aber nur als Hobby, allerdings hatte ich Zugang zu professionellem Umfeld.--Hubertl (talk) 23:14, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Hast du schon eine Idee wie das wird, ähnlich wie WLM? Da gings ja auch um das Hochladen von Bildern innerhalb eines bestimmten Zeitpunkts. Aber wie es scheint, die Sache, dass sich auch andere Länder anhängen wollen, war von den Franzosen wahrscheinlich so gar nicht mitüberlegt. Wir sind alle schon richtig aufgeregt, die erste Aktion in Ö ist bereits organisiert. --Hubertl (talk) 23:20, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Keine Ahnung, ich denke eine zeitliche Begrenzung gibt es nicht. Ich habe für die nächsten Wochen und Monaten hier in Nordkalifornien erstmal zwei Touren zu Käsereien in Sonoma und Marin eingeplant. Und es scheint auch etwas Interesse der lokalen Community zu geben. Anders als bei den Franzosen würde ich gerne auch die Käseherstellung und nicht nur die fertigen Produkte dokumentieren. Von der Sache an sich habe ich allerdings nur wenig Ahnung, da verlasse ich mich auf dein fachmännisches Urteil. Ich sehe das ganze momentan vor allem vom fotografischen Standpunkt her. Und dann soll es natürlich auch Spaß machen. Ich finde Deine Initiative in Wien auf jeden Fall klasse. Die Deutschen scheinen ja etwas schwerfällig zu sein, was das Hochladen der Bilder angeht ;-) Beste Grüße, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 00:21, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Ich hab mir jetzt das Bild vom Humbold angesehen, wenn das so beabsichtigt ist und nicht Zufall, dann ist das ein interessanter Käse. Käse ist etwas ganz besonderes, ich lebte 1974 neun Monate im Wallis (die erste Kommune, die es in der Schweiz gegeben hat), in einem uralten Chalet, ehemaliger Bischofsitz, und wir hatten dort mehrere Keller, welche teilweise nie begangen wurden. In einem der hinteren fanden wir einen riesigen Käselaib (ehemals so 40kg) den wir nach oben schleppten und anhand des Käsereistempels als ein Produkt aus dem Jahr 1920 identifizierten. Nur in der Mitte gab es einen ca 3cm langen Riss, ansonsten war es einfach nur ein Käselaib. Kurz: wir haben ihn mit einer Hacke zerkleinert, dann gerieben (was anderes war nicht möglich) und uns dann wochenlang von irgendetwas Gratiniertem ernährt. Ich glaube, das ist eine Geschichte, die wahrscheinlich kaum jemand erlebt hatte, allerdings hab ich gehört, dass es Käsereien gibt in der Schweiz, die Jahrgangskäse aufbewahren. Was sie damit machen, das weiß ich nicht. Seitdem sehe ich die Sache mit dem Ablaufdatum auf Lebensmittel differenzierter ;-) lg --Hubertl (talk) 01:07, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Ja, der Humboldt Fog ist wirklich interessant. Die Pflanzenasche gibt ihm sein charakteristisches Aussehen (Info hier). Mensch, und die Geschichte mit dem Käse aus dem Chalet im Wallis ist natürlich spitzenklasse. Ich wünschte, ich wäre dabei gewesen :-) --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 03:38, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Über den Käse können wir ja noch reden[edit]

aber möchtest du dieses Bild nicht in die FP-Nominierung geben? Ich will es nicht machen, dann dann nehme ich mir die Möglichkeit, es positiv zu bewerten. ;-) --Hubertl (talk) 23:09, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Licht und Käse[edit]

Hallo Frank, nett gemeint mit dem QI, aber an den Käsebildern üben wir noch, das Objektiv war nur begrenzt tauglich und Licht … naja, da müssen wir auch noch einiges lernen. Interessieren würde mich deshalb Dein Lichtaufbau bei dem hier, und wie weit Du mit dem 35mm-Objektiv vom Objekt entfernt warst. Nächster Versuch bei uns wird mit Makro sein, aber vielleicht ist das auch genau der falsche Ansatz. Liebe Grüße, --Elya (talk) 10:45, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Nur für dich :-) Ganz liebe Grüße nach Köln. --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 01:16, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
