Your comment to my Nunâ island panoramic nominated for QI

Thank you for taking your time to look carefully at my first Nunâ island panoramic nominated for QI. As I inspected the image for the black pixels you mentioned, I realized there was a bad stitch in the photo. Therefore, I have withdrawn my nomination of that image. Instead, I have worked on editing connection points, and I have redone the whole process. However, this time I decided for another crop, and I have not sharpened the image this time as I think the sharpness is sufficient in the reprocessed photo. I have nominated the resulting Nunâ island panoramic for QI as a substitute for the original nomination. -- Slaunger 01:40, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi Slaunger. This image is definitely worth being QI! --Ikiwaner 22:02, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
Hi Ikiwaner. Thank you for taking the time to review the new nomination. You mention something about a carefully applied sophisticated sharpness filter. Do you have anything particular in mind? I do not have Photoshop, but I recently started using GIMP, although I do not master that tool fully. Did you mean something like smart sharpening based on an edge detected mask for applying an unsharp mask? That is what I did in the first edition but although I only apllied it by an amount of 40% or so to the edges in the luminosity channel it seemed to me that it gave the photo an artificial look. -- Slaunger 11:31, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes that's what I meant. I use Fred Miranda CS Pro but I'm not fully satisfied. Sharpening is hard here in commons because your images get judged on screen resolution while big images should better be optimized for printing. I do not use GIMP because it has no colour management. A calibrated display is very important to me when doing contrast and colour corrections. --Ikiwaner 11:32, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
OK, thank you for clarifying that. By the way. I took the liberty to replace the image you re-reviewed for QI with yet another version. The reason being that there where further stitching errors and it was commented in featured picture candidates that the photo had a noisy sky and could benefit from a less tight crop. I also applied a small amount of smart sharpening (30%) to the rocks following your advise. -- Slaunger 21:28, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Becoming an administrator?

Hi Ikiwaner,

What do you think about a request for adminship? I personally think that you have contributed so many great pictures to this project, but you are also doing a lot of messy work such as organizing categories and so forth. If you were admin, you could help Commons even more. Best regards from an user with a dynamic IP. --212.41.103.156 00:04, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi, who are you? For long time Commons could need more admins because the list of images to be deleted was too long. However this is not the case currently and I'm spending almost all my time for Wikimedia CH. I just have not time for additional commons work the next months, sorry. --Ikiwaner 11:32, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Image:CH_Tarasp_Fontana_edit.jpg

Habe jetzt mal Zeit gefunden mich um das Bild zu kümmern. Alledings ist die CA in den Wolken nicht so einfach zu entfernen. IMHO sieht man sie in der jetzt auf 8MP verkleinerten Version nicht so stark. Was meinst Du? --Dschwen 23:02, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Hoi Daniel, ich kam leider vor meinen Ferien nicht mehr dazu, mir den edit naeher anzuschauen. Bin momentan in Kanada, kuemmere mich spaeter darum, versprochen. Gruss --Ikiwaner 06:16, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Sagginitobel bridge

Ikiwaner: You have posted some very beautiful photos of Maillart's Salginatobel Bridge on Wikimedia. I am a self-employed writer. Two daily newspapers in the U.S. print my economics column twice a week. I am writing about how works like briges can be beautiful and also be economical in cost. I use the Salginatobel bridge and Christian Menn's new bridge in Boston as examples. I would like a photo of Salginatobel to be published with my column in the St. Paul Minnesota) Pioneer-Press. I do not have any budget to pay for its use. The newspaper is not willing to pay anything and wants to use a stock black-and-white photo that they can get free.

Would you be willing to give your permission to use your "Salginatobelbruecke suedwest.jpg" for this purpose? It would be printed one-time in a newspaper on newsprint so it would not be practical for anyone else to reproduce it. You would be credited by name as the creator of the photograph.

If this is possible, please email me at ed@edlotterman.com. I wish that I could offer you a monetary payment but that is not possible in this circumstance.

Thank you for your time.

Wikipedia Tag Bern

Sali Ikiwaner, Merssi für die Info. Leider kann ich nicht kommen, da ich am Samstag bereits einen anderen Termin habe. Wenn ich das etwas eher gewußt hätte, dann hätte ich das gleich mit einem Besuch bei meiner Schwester in Luzern verbinden können. Naja, vielleicht nächstes Jahr. Aber vielleicht macht ja jemand Fotos, die ich dann anschauen kann. Das wäre nett. Viel Spass dort. Gruß Simon alias --Simonizer 07:39, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Image:K_umdrehkreisel.jpg

Hallo Ikiwaner, im Wikipedia-Artikel Kreisel ist mir o. g. Bild aufgefallen. In der Bilddatei hast Du eine Freigabe eingetragen per OTRS ticket 2007092110004071, deshalb wende ich mich an Dich. Ist durch das OTRS-Ticket das Bild über alle Zweifel erhaben? Es ist durch Oblomov lizenziert als "self-made". Da ich durch die Beiträge des Bildeinstellers etwas ins Grübeln gekommen bin, würde ich Dich um den Gefallen bitten, nachzusehen, ob Dir hier alles in Ordnung erscheint. Das Bild findet sich auch hier. Für Deine Mühen bedanke ich mich, Joachim Weckermann 16:18, 4. Okt. 2007 (CEST) --89.60.252.138 14:18, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Image:Torun SS Johns Mary Magdalene.jpg

This is an old issue, but I must write about it. You had uploaded corrected version of my image Image:Torun SS Johns Mary Magdalene 01.jpg and wrote that original should be deleted. Please be careful with such a statements, I think both versions should stay. I admit, that cropping is good for composition reasons, but at the same time you cropped bottom part of the sculpture. This part could seem as having no significance, but for somebody who studies history of art it could have. You also retouched the colors, but I don't like them, there is too much purple color in it. The original is closer to how it acutally looks. Pko 19:49, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

This is a misunderstanding. I asked to delete my edit after a few days and load it on top of your original version. With that both versions would have been preserved with my version as the "standard" one. As you don't like my edit this procedure doesn't make sense so it's better to do nothing. --Ikiwaner 17:58, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Image:Moorea-hauru.jpg

Bonjour,

Je vous remercie la critique à la photo que j'ai présenté pour être "de qualité". J'ai présenté une photo là pour en recevoir une critique, plutôt que devenir de qualité. Je voulais savoir ce que je peux améliorer. Je vais récupérer le fichier raw pour faire les améliorations, quoique je sois inquiet pour la distorsion concave qui ait pu créer l'optique de mon appareil photo... De même, il y a le problème des couleurs, que je vais régler immédiatement, encore que je craigne que le problème soit le moteur du "preview" du commons.

Bien à vous,

Vilallonga · (digui digui) 13:06, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

J'ai fait quelques changements à l'image, mais je n'en suis pas tout à fait satisfait... En outre, je crains encore que le moteur du "preview" du commons n'est pas tres raffiné... Voyez-vous le résultat à Image:Moorea-hauru-r.jpg. Merci pour votre temps. Bien à vous, Vilallonga · (digui digui) 13:39, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Merci pour avoir pris ma critique comme une recommendation. La composition et le contraste du nouvel image sont déja bien. Il reste la distortion. En Photoshop on pourrait la corriger avec Filter->Distort->lens correction. Vous verrez que l'horizon n'est pas parfaitement horizontale ce qui est façile a corriger. Sincèrement --Ikiwaner 17:52, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I'm writing to let you know that an image of yours that became a Commons Featured Picture during 2007 is now part of the 2007 Picture of the Year competition.

Image:Grande Arche de La Défense et fontaine.jpg

Hello, you have supported to the promotion of the image Image:Grande Arche de La Défense et fontaine.jpg to the Featured Picture status, and I thank you for that. Currently this image has been proposed to deletion by another user under the pretext that there is no FOP in France.

I believe that the image is not a copyright infringement; the main subject is the water from the fountain, the Grand Arche is unavoidable in the background. In what the lightning of the fountain is concerned, as user Arad mentioned in the original nomination, they are very simple and they do not have a special plan, so they cannot be copyrighted.

If you wish you can express your opinion on this issue on the deletion request page of this image, otherwise the image could disappear soon; the usage check indicates that the image is already used in around 150 pages around internation wikis (usage check), it would be a pity for the community to see a FP image disappear.

Thanks and best regards, --Atoma 17:00, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

I've just seen that the deletion is closed now without deleting the image. That's a good decision. --Ikiwaner 17:36, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi,

thanks for your edit in Image:Warszawa-Królikarnia.jpg. When I was uploading it I didn`t expected it to be needed. But if you thought so, now I think it was needful. Sfu 11:16, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

You're welcome. It was a boarderline case: In thumbnailed view it looked tilted while it was OK on the large scale. It's a tiny edit. Let's hope it gets promoted! --Ikiwaner 18:07, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

deprecated function in your monobook.js

Dear user, I noticed that you use the includePage function in your monobook.js page.

This function is now obsolete, as the importScript function was introduced with rev:35064 to the MediaWiki Javascript core library wikibits.js. It also keeps track of already imported files.

To allow us to remove includePage from Mediawiki:Common.js I'd kindly ask you to replace its use with importScript (same syntax!). Thanks! --Dschwen 17:03, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Tilted canalside houses

You wrote in response to the quality image candidacy of Image:KeizersgrachtAmsterdam.jpg: "Tilted buildings on the left". For your information, many buildings alongside the canals in Amsterdam are in fact tilted. – Ilse@ 22:22, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Dear Ilseat, it may be true that some buildings are tilted a little bit. But when they're primarily tilted towards the image border I think of perspective distortion. See the pillar of the bridge on the left: It is tilted the same angle as the houses. Coincidence? --Ikiwaner 18:40, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
