Dartmoor[edit]

I'm trying to clear Category:Dartmoor of directly included files (putting everything through subcats). Issues so far:

  1. Livestock: "wildlife" obviously isn't valid, "agriculture of D" perhaps?
  2. A couple specific images: File:Dartmoor.jpg. I don't have a clue which tor that is - do you? If you can identify it please do so...--Nilfanion (talk) 11:57, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
Got to Steeperton - from Cosdon area I guess? Should have a fair few there :) And yep, agree on that tor - can see its identical to your decent image of it.--Nilfanion (talk) 12:51, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi,

I as mega addict could only stay away for 2 days :) I would just like to say that you make super pictures lately, if this is what we get from you from now I guess we would have 365 FP by you next year ;)

Btw thanks for the email you sended a while back.

See ya, Huib talk 18:24, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks - much appreciated & glad you are around.
The course is taking time but also giving some photo opps which I will hope to upload when relevant.
The above are QI of course not FP but you never know :). --Herby talk thyme 10:39, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Sharp Tor[edit]

I wonder just how many Sharp tors are in Devon :)...--Nilfanion (talk) 00:55, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Quite a lot I would imagine, fairly obvious name for a rock outcrop! --Herby talk thyme 15:29, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
True! (Though I'm feeling bored enough to have a check now) Incidentally, any idea how to categorise File:O Brook.jpg (and similar shots)? Maybe Geography of D will do.--Nilfanion (talk) 15:55, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
To me it is certainly a "Rivers of" one as an important source of water for industry & farming etc. There are a number of mine workings up the valley including some that were active early last century and some from considerably earlier. I guess a "views of" in some way covers panos & that sort of thing? --Herby talk thyme 16:16, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah rivers makes sense. (I'll also add it to South Dartmoor (SSSI) when I create that one). As for the broader subject - "views" works: Can't see how else to categorise File:Dartmoor sheep.jpg.--Nilfanion (talk) 16:20, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Re: Uploads[edit]

Fair enough. I'll check them and add relevant ones to the lists - unless you beat me to it. I agree on the military, either "Dartmoor Training Area" or "Military training on Dartmoor" would work as the category. The bit that concerns me is actually the military aspect of it. Category:Military training needs a lot of work, its far too generic to be an appropriate parent and the "by country" subcats don't even exist :(--Nilfanion (talk) 17:36, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Corfe castle 1.jpg
Corfe castle 1 edit.jpg

Well I'm no expert ;-) but ... If you were going to offer it for FP as a landscape, or even a picture of a structure, people would probably want it bigger, ie a multi shot panorama with eye boggling detail :-).

It is hard to say whether it is tilted because it is a ruin and one can't quite expect vertical walls to still be vertical. And things lean to the left (main block) and the right (middle tower stump). But what convinces me is the ridge-line and eaves of the building bottom left. If you rotate the whole image 1.6 degrees clockwise it looks better.

The white balance looks a little too red, looks like an evening or maybe early morning shot. Probably only very slightly off.

The overall exposure looks good, no blown highlights or parts lost in shadow. The bright sky perhaps means that the subject looks less bright than it should on a bright, clear day. This is reflected in the colour histogram which has a large bulge representing all that bright sky, and most of the rest of the pixels are towards the underexposed end. That probably contributes to it looking as though it was late afternoon or early evening.

My idea of framing seldom matches that of anybody else. I like the basically centred composition, and can't think of a better one for this basically symmetrical scene. The structure bottom left is a little bit distracting. If you haven't got enough time to wait for it to fall down, or be overgrown by trees, perhaps it could be cloned out or cropped off. Maybe ask someone like Alvesgaspar about alternative framing possibilities.

And of course I would fiddle, a little unsharp mask, a little white balance adjust, a little brightness/curves adjust, a little saturation tweek (for good measure) ... and the result is little different :-). I'm not sure it would be an improvement :-) :-).

A quite attractive image, and I think the possibly slightly incorrect lighting actually gives it a bit more character and mood than the 'corrected' version. :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 12:26, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Should have gotten there earlier [1]. --Tony Wills (talk) 08:58, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Dotty[edit]

I have recently been wondering what on earth the dpi figure recorded in EXIF data means. Eg looking at a random image File:Down tor circle & row 1.JPG, it has horizontal and vertical resolution described as 72 dpi. The camera sensor is somewhat smaller than an inch, can't have many pixels ;-). Even if it was describing a 35mm equivalent still not many pixels :-). A suggestion as to how you should print it out? At that resolution it is a suggestion to print it as a 28" high poster. Maybe it is really just an indication that it uses square pixels. I'm sure some reader will relieve me of my ignorance ;-) --Tony Wills (talk) 21:45, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

I found a thread that says 72 DPI is the number of actual physical pixels in an inch on the original Macintosh screen in 1984. This gave them true WYSIWYG, eg a 12 point font (a point defined as being 1/72th" in size) would show the same size on screen and paper. Strangely enough en:Dots_per_inch has a useful article on the subject :-) --Tony Wills (talk)

User:Oro2[edit]

Hi Herby:

You blocked this account indefinitely in April for abusing multiple accounts; try as I might, I could not find any other accounts which they may have used; I've done checkusers on enwiki and it's come up clean, as has the IP address, and I've consulted the checkuser-l list to see if there is anything related there. As they're an active user on the English Wikipedia as well as the Norwegian Wikipedia, I've gone ahead and unblocked the account, but am perfectly willing to redo it if we can determine a compelling reason. Bastique demandez 19:07, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, Herby, I've been pointed to the block of Bonga3 and researched the logs for that date. Same IP number (although checked on different days, so it was hard to find out). I'll reblock with a note. Bastique demandez 19:21, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
If my memory serves me right you might find a clue when comparing deleted contribs of user:Bonga1 and user:Bonga3 with those from this account. As Oro2 the user is doing fairly well at Wikipedia in Norwegian - but if I remember correctly and this is Bonga3 then I gave up on them with regards to imageuploading and respect for copyright after several attempts at making them cooperate. Might be right to give a second chance Commonswise, but that will need very careful monitoring/mentoring if so (and I'm not the one who will be doing either of those ;) Finn Rindahl (talk) 19:32, 6 November 2009 (UTC)How come I didn't get ec on that one...

Re:[edit]

Yeah, I'll have a look into that and associated pages. The one image I really want to get a hold of/create at the moment is a decent map of the moors - but not entirely sure where to begin.

You were right[edit]

Hi Herby, I'd like to tell you that you were absolutely right, when you said that "Edit warring is "plain daft"". It is. I admit it was daft of me to be a part of it. You were right to report me to AN/U. I've been involved in few edit warring before, but that one is different. Now I really learned my lesson, thanks to you, Herby, and I'd like to assure you it is not going to happen ever again. I will try to become as perfect as possible :). I would also like to apologize for everything that followed. Best wishes.--Mbz1 (talk) 15:23, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
