Bot move[edit]

Thanks, Steinsplitter; will look into them. Jee 15:12, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Merci[edit]

Thank you for your thanks on this diff, it's always nice to have that and feel welcome by others. This is what makes a friendly space in our virtual world. \o/ --PierreSelim (talk) 10:36, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome! Jee 10:58, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Marking your works[edit]

Hi, I've read your discussion on the FPC talk page, I just want to be sure, is my way to mark my work ok? an exemple here. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 18:45, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Christian Ferrer, that discussions are more about people who are using custom license tags or customized messages under "permissions". It seems you're using only a "creditline" without mentioning where or how the attribution is specified which is perfectly OK with the license conditions. Jee 02:22, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Follow-up to your revert[edit]

Hi, This is to follow-up on your revert on the photo I contributed of St. Joseph Church, Gowanda, New York. Another member suggested that I add the additional tag to ensure that users would know that the photo is usable and not copyrighted in any way, and that it is my original work, Daniellagreen (talk) 15:42, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Daniellagreen, the right places for license tags are either outside {{Information}} or at Permission= inside {{Information}}. I removed the tag you added at Source= because that field is only for mentioning source; not license or permission. Let me know if any further doubts. Jee 15:51, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Okay, well, I didn't know where to put it, but wanted to include it because it was suggested to me. I thought it silly to have to include another release of copyright, but I did as directed, Daniellagreen (talk) 15:57, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Mycalesis perseus of Kadavoor.jpg[edit]

Hi, I promoted this file in the QIC page, but I uploaded an other version of it (not very different, in summary more sharp but with a personal process). If you don't think it's an improvment you can revert. If you like the result and if you're interested, I can describe exaltly what I've done. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 18:18, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

to see the difference look at the fine details -- Christian Ferrer Talk 18:23, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
@Christian Ferrer: Thanks for the help; it is always appreciated. I'm still very poor in post processing. Hope you like her wing scales. :) Jee 02:18, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the link, after to see that I was surprised to see only four legs on your butterfly... So I search a reason and I found in this page : An adult butterfly has six legs, but in the nymphalids, the first pair is reduced. I learnt something. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 05:06, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Macro[edit]

Hi, for macro photography of insects, is close-up filters a good solution with my material? or maybe dedicate zooms lens? do you know good ones? -- Christian Ferrer Talk 12:02, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Christian, closeup filters will work with any lens; including primes, macros, and zooms. But they have very high magnification and shallow DOF. So whether they are suitable for your needs depends on your photography habits. I've one; the picture you edited for me is taken with it, setting my camera at 154mm.
I've a friend in Flickr who is using the same filter with DSLRs. Jee 15:37, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the links, apparently this material allows nice compositions. Can you precise so that I understand well, you say "...setting my camera at 154mm" but what is the focal length whithout the closeup filter ,I did not see it on your exif datas? For exemple with my 105mm what will be the result (what is the calculation?)? -- Christian Ferrer Talk 18:03, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

154mm is the focal length of my camera lens. The closeup filter will not affect/change the focal length. But the subject distance must be in 3-4 inches (76-101 mm) for the DCR250, as it focuses only in that range. The longer the focal length, the greater the magnification. But DOF will decrease when focal length increases. (My freeware NR tool remove the EXIF; that's why no data in the file.)
These pictures ([1], [2], [3]) are with a 105mm in a cropped sensor camera. There will be a slight difference in magnification and DOF in your full frame.
Canon has a pro grade 5x macro; people like Richard Bartz can share you their experience.
A great macro photographer that you can ask for advice is Kurt G. He is an expert in night macros while the subjects are sleeping! Jee 02:26, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much for all these explanations, these links and thus the time spent here, you are really very kind. I am going interested in the subject and to analyze all this. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 04:41, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

RfC on the scope of file renaming criterion 2[edit]

Pursuant to the closing of the RFC "Proposed overhaul of the "Which files should be renamed?" section", a second RfC has been opened at Commons:Requests for comment/File renaming criterion 2 specifically to address the scope of criterion 2, which currently reads "To change from a completely meaningless name to a name that describes what the image displays." Since you participated in the initial discussion, I am notifying you of the follow-up RfC.

Please note that I fully anticipate that the first few days will see a number of additional options proposed, so it may be a good idea to check back periodically on the RfC.

Thank you. Sven Manguard Wha? 01:43, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Gallery of flowers[edit]

Hi Jee, I begin to classify the flowers of this galleries by families. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 07:03, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

I also put the orders and maybe that we could classify out the images only with orders because there are many families?...Can you take a look and can you say your opinion please? -- Christian Ferrer Talk 07:42, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Finaly I think it's not too bad with the families AND with the orders. More generally I think that we should reflect to have more attractive and elaborate layouts for our galleries, I've no precise ideas but... -- Christian Ferrer Talk 07:50, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes; "order" and "family" concept is very nice and useful. <gallery mode="packed-hover" heights=150px> may give it a better look. (Sorry for the late response; I was away for two days.) Jee 12:09, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I don't know if you saw it, because there is a lot of things in my talk page, but MPF have answered and say his opinion, he agree with you for to merge Plants and Flowers, and, me too, I agree, from a scientific point of view I totaly agree and it will be more logic and relevant. I have 3 questions:
1. Must we ask the opinion of the community to do that?
2. What exactly to do? to take the images from the plant gallery and to put its in the flower gallery?
3. Should we rename the flower gallery into flower and plants or IMO in Flora? -- Christian Ferrer Talk 04:51, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes; I saw MPF's comment, and agree with it. As I said earlier, there is no need to repeat everything in two places. So we can move the contents in "Flowers" to "Plants". Then we can redirect "Flowers" to "Plants". Since "Plants" cover everything, there is no need of other names like flower and plants or Flora. Mentioning in FPC talk is nice; but we already pinged most of the people involved in Biology. So I don't think a big issue. Jee 04:09, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Agree; on point 1 above, it might be best to announce what you propose first and wait a few days for anyone to comment, before doing it. Yes to Jee that "Plants" is the best title. - MPF (talk) 08:31, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Hope you are well soon! - MPF (talk) 08:31, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
