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)

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)

Commons:Featured pictures/Animals/Arthropods[edit]

Hi Jee, how are you? The last time you had severe headache, I hope you feel better. I've one or two question. I finiched the galleries of Plants, Flowers and Fungi. I did not dare to gather Flowers and Plants, do you think I can? I also started the gallery of Arthropods, is there a reason that the orders are not classified by alphabetical order (Lepidoptera, Odonata....)? -- Christian Ferrer Talk 07:48, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

@Christian Ferrer: I saw your edits as those pages are in my watch list. They are fine to me. I think you can merge Plants and Flowers as both are completed now. You can order them in the alphabetical order too. Thanks; I appreciate your efforts. (My neighbor applied Hibiscus hispidissimus on the big toes of me, which is a natural medicine to cure migraine. Hope it works.) Jee 08:13, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Ok, cool. For me to work theses galleries (and photography in general) is a pleasure. It is a very pleasant way to approach disciplines very different than my job whitch is to carry that like [4] during all the day and all the days. I always wanted to be a scientific and/or to work near the nature but I did not work on the school so.... So after (or before) my day job, it's a real pleasure to spend time with all these beautifull images:). The last time, in my talk page Archaeodontosaurus said that blocking the images to 200px could be a problem for some phones. Me I don't know nothing about phones, but after ro read that, it seems that the resolutions of recent phones are widely superior (here near 1,136×640 pixels), thus I don't think it's an issue.
If those galleries pages are in your watch list, so you must have a lot of notifications, I make one by one images....:)-- Christian Ferrer Talk 08:57, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes; I'm notified on your every edit. ;) Glad to see you belong to the working class. Jee 09:05, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Hello my friends. I welcome to the club of migraine, if continued to work with enthusiasm besides the Christian time, s then it should not take long to join us. For tablets and mobile phones is actually a problem of layout. I pointed out that you do not be surprised if there are returns on this item. I do not always follow these tips layout. In any case this work is very beautiful and it is useful because it gives a positive image of Commons. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 12:47, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Archaeo, supports and encouragements from mentors like you are always a reward pleasure for us. Jee 12:56, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Ok now Plants and Flowers are now merged. The gallery of flowers is always existing so what so we do with it now?
    But for now me too I have now a little headache and I take my bicycle to go there for to breathe the fresh air and to try to capture my next FP :-) -- Christian Ferrer Talk 15:55, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
  • I set a redirect. Please check. (You've many refreshing places as in Kerala.) Jee 16:29, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Ok for the redirect but what about the FPC boot and the unsorted sections? If someone close a nomination and tag it with "Plant/Flowers", what will be the result? Will the boot place it on the unsorted section of the gallery of Flowers or will it be also redirected? I've no doubt that Kerala have a lot of interesting refreshing places (6x biggest than Hérault) and if the climate seems very different the topography is a bit similar (littoral zone, ponds near the littoral, coastals plains, transition hills between plains ans mountains, and the mountains). -- Christian Ferrer Talk 06:05, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
Christian, I think the Bot skips and retry in the next scheduled time. We can fix it (by editing "Plant/Flowers" to "Plants") in between. Jee 07:14, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes of course and maybe we should warn people like A.Savin who is often closing FP nominations to now edit "Plant/Flowers" to "Plants".
By looking at this article, I found this image whitch is already a FP but was not on the gallery. I added it to the gallery of course but I hope there is not others lost FP like this one. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 07:23, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
Christian: Hmm; it was manually processed by somebody. Jee 07:35, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Macro[edit]

Hi Jee if you like macro photography, you should maybe like these images and others in this file list

-- Christian Ferrer Talk 05:00, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Christian. Great collection; I like the way s/he uses various focal lengths suitable for the subjects. Jee 05:20, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes indeed interesting, :( the last night my camera is fallen, the lens is broken and I my camera is also broken. At night I did not see that one foot of my tripod was not correctly opened...The good news is that I will certainly have a new camera soon :)
Christian: It is a sad news. Wish you get a D810 soon. Jee 05:50, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
It is the camera of which I indeed think...Today I have a day off and I think that I am going to go to Montpellier to find what I am looking for. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 06:00, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
  • It seems that a choice of small DoF in macro can make very nice and intersting results:
Yes; if the "subject" is a specific body part only, for example, the "head profile" as here. :) Such works are much appreciated in Flickr. They are OK in COM:FPs too. But Wikipedia editors not much encourage or use them. Another possibility is works like File:Caliphrodae head.jpg and File:Calliphora vomitoria Portrait.jpg. But they are focus staked; and very challenging! Jee 08:38, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
An issue of Wikipedia is IMO that the images are too much small, this is why a Wikipedia editor will prefer a cropped part of one of these images for to illustrate an article whitch is talking about the head of these insects but it would be really a pity to crop these images whitch at a reasonable size can correctly illustrate the articles. In a general way I find that the layout on Wikipedia is not bad however not enough worked and the connection with Wikimedia is also not enough developed, but this thing is a good beginnig. I also think that the Wikimedia projects (Quality, Valued and Featured images) are not enough highlighted in Wikipedia articles, we should know by reading the articles and looking at the miniatures if the images used in this artiches have been rewarded on Wikimedia (colored border, seal...).
The two images you shows are indeed not only the finest but more the finest of the finest. :) -- Christian Ferrer Talk 11:36, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Featured pictures/Animals/Arthropods[edit]

Hi Jee, I think that it can be possible and useful to create subpages for the orders whitch contains more than 50 images (Hymenoptera : 54 images), (Diptera : 76 images), (Lepidoptera : 221 images), (Odonata : 73 images) because when I will finish this gallery it will be very very big and long and thus a bit disturbing and visually blocked!!.
Of course the current alphabetical divisions will not disappear. For exemple :

-- Christian Ferrer Talk 08:09, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

@Christian Ferrer: Interesting. But I think it will be wise to discuss at COM:FPC first as it seems a big change/development. Jee 05:57, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

File:Common Lime Butterfly Papilio demoleus UP by Kadavoor.jpg[edit]

Oups, one of your images was not in the FP gallery; the mistake is now corrected :)

Happy Onam![edit]

"When Maveli ruled the land, All the people were equal. And people were joyful and merry; They were all free from harm. There was neither anxiety nor sickness, Deaths of children were unheard of, There were no lies, There was neither theft nor deceit, And no one was false in speech either. Measures and weights were right; No one cheated or wronged his neighbor. When Maveli ruled the land, All the people formed one casteless races."

Wish you all a wonderful Onam! (Will be away for a week) Jee 11:46, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Preferred FP gallery[edit]

Hi Jee, I think the idea is good, I took a look but for exactly what you want I think a script is needeed. And for my big despair, it is out of my skills. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 12:39, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Christian Ferrer: Mine too. But hopefully somebody who know the coding will do it. :) Jee 12:49, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

ISS-20 Thunderstorms on the Brazilian Horizon[edit]

Hi Jee

In the page: Commons:Featured_picture_candidates/Log/August_2014 apparently occurred an exchange between:

  • Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:ISS-20 Thunderstorms on the Brazilian Horizon.jpg (2014)
  • Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Thunderstorms on the Brazilian Horizon.jpg (2010)

I do not know who to tell, how was your featured picture promotion, I decided to warn you. I hope I'm correct in warn you.

Lauro Sirgadocontribs 15:34, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

  • @Lauro Sirgado: I didn't get what you mean by "apparently occurred an exchange between". The picture was first nominated in 2010 but failed; but featured in August 2014. Anything wrong in it? Jee 15:43, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
  • The page: Commons:Featured_picture_candidates/Log/August_2014, displays the result of 2010. -- Lauro Sirgadocontribs 15:50, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

File:Machimus rusticus, Sète 02.jpg[edit]

Hi Jee, I need your expert advices for this photo. The wings are overexposed so do you think this image is a QI? I prefer to ask you before to try to nominate it because somes images are sometimes too easily promoted in the QIC page. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 07:53, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

  • @Christian Ferrer: Overexposed wings and underexposed/unsharp eye (probably due to the back lit) are not so good. I prefer a tight crop for such a small subject. BTW, congrats for new 810! Jee 08:24, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Here s/he is cleaning his eyes. A good documentation of the behavior; but can't expect a sharp shot while the subject is restless. :)
I checked our Robber fly gallery and surprised to see only 3 FPs so far. There are a few older FPs in EN; but they are of very low resolutions. I like Richard's photo; but that is also not today's standard. My FPs are taken with a Panasonic FZ28 at 81mm + Raynox DCR250 closeup glass. So the quality of details also below our standard. So what I can talk about is composition and angle of view; an area where I am a bit confident. Here the subject is on a branch; so is easier to align the camera/lens perfectly with the subject. But I was as close as 3-4 inches and robber flies are not so friendly. Here and hear the subjects where on ground level; so I was laying on the ground. The background in your work seems very busy; need more patience to catch them in a more pleasing spot. Try hard; and I'm sure you will achieve it! Jee 02:57, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
  • My question was more to know if there could be QI, not FP of course. And I'm not sure to understand correctly your answer about that. But thank you very much for your analysis and your approach; ) -- Christian Ferrer Talk / Images 05:07, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

You closed that, but if you took 2 sec, you will realize that some volunteers created a another version 5 days before you close that, and we just needed one more vote... Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 02:35, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, we need to confirm manually, cause the bot do not take in account changes in the image, this the why we need a human reading what's going on to confirm. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 03:03, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
But we can't give allowance for the 9 day rule. More over FPC expects stable nominations. You can try QIC first for minor corrections. If you think my closing should be reverted, please ask at FPC talk. But I don't think the decision will change. Jee 03:08, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Dude, this already is a QI image, no opposed votes, and six votes...
Just think about it, I already give up to do great things here...
Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 12:32, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Oops; but I can't do anything, I afraid. Just pinging A.Savin for opinion. Jee 14:05, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi Rodrigo, I really don't know any betterb than Jee. My 2 cents: it is of course annoying if an FPC fails so barely, but sometimes it happens, and there is always a possibility to renominate. --A.Savin 14:43, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Black and White[edit]

Hi Jee, is there in the FP galleries a section for the black and white images? if not I think it can be good to create a new gallery for that. Of course to leave its in the current galleries (peoples, natures, histrorical...) but a new entry where theses images would be gathered can be a good idea. I don't want to do it right now, I already have a work to be finished at first, but I think it's not a bad idea. When I shall have end to relook the FP galleries, I will also ask to the communauty for to create new sub-galleries (Artiodactyla, Passeriformes...) like the last time I did. But this time I prefear to wait to have finished for to be sure to ask for everything at one time. -- Christian Ferrer Talk / Images 18:36, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Black & White is a good theme; but most "historical" are b & w too. So I afraid how we can split these topics. Jee 02:17, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

New multilingual tag for other licensing options that you may be interested in[edit]

I know it has been a while since you gave me some really useful advice on licensing, but I've now created a new multilingual tag, {{Other available license options}}, based off your wording that I've since implemented in my custom license. I don't know if you'd have any interest in using it on your custom license, but I thought that you'd at least like to know. Thanks again for the help you gave me back in July, and take care!
