You reviewed my photo Tambunan_Sabah_Battlefield-Battle-of-Tambunan-01.jpg and added the comment "very nice but tilted". I am not sure, if you are aware, that "tilt lines" - a result of perspective aberration - do not occur when the camera is far away from the object. I have to oppose your opinion, that a small hut which is 2 kilometers far away from the camera can produce tilted vertical lines. Please consider, that we are talking about handmade erected huts on pilars which are sometimes out of orthogonal construction schemes. Moreover, the photo is showing a section of the "Tambunan Plain" which is rising from Tambunan to Sunsurong - eventually the rising horicontal line is giving a misleading view over the photo.
Of course I am always willing to apply whatever operation is needed to enhance a photo, but I cannot "untilt" a photo which is not tilted. Thank you, --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 13:16, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
*Hello*, To me, pillars, trees, houses in the background tend to lean to the left. Very nice shoot otherwise. Let's discuss in DR, regards, --Myrabella (talk) 13:37, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Al right; I could enhance by rotating clockwise. Your re-assessing will be highly appreciated. Cheers, --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 16:28, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your answer. But it seems that something went wrong with your edit, and the image has lost contrast and sharpness (and weight) more than expected I am afraid. Maybe is because you have imposed the same size (a rotation generally implies a crop)? Sorry to be bothersome, but your image is pretty, not boring, and my eyes were stopped by it. --Myrabella (talk) 21:50, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Gosh, you are right! I oversaw the edit protocoll in Lightroom ... I made a mistake and the export resultat is really poor!!! I am just uploading a new version. Thank you very much for your important hint! Cheers from Cologne, --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 09:40, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Better than the 2nd version! However, colors and saturation have changed in your new version, and personally, I prefer the original version in this respect. Good enough to go thouh, thank you for sharing. Cheers from near Paris :)--Myrabella (talk) 14:27, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for supporting! Saturation is - to a certain extend - for sure also about personal preference and I am a little bit shy to upload a 4th version with reduced saturation but just for my consideration: can I do that without breaking the QI status? --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 10:12, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Congratulations on an incredible photo in the WLM 2013 finals!-Godot13 (talk) 18:25, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much! I am very pleased and proud of it! I seize the opportunity to felicitate you too for your recent uploads about Israel and Czech Republic—some are poignant. --Myrabella (talk) 22:03, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 - Édition française
Bonjour, une des photos que vous avez versé dans le cadre de Wiki Loves Monuments a été sélectionnée par le jury. Nous prendrons contact avec vous rapidement pour les modalités pratiques de remise de prix. Sachez d'ores et déjà que la soirée de remise des prix aura lieu le 29 novembre à Paris et que vous y êtes bien entendu convié. N'hésitez pas à revenir vers moi si vous avez des questions.
In short and in english : one of your picture has been selected by french jury, we'll contact you as soon as possible with more informationSymac (talk) 19:00, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Ah ben tiens, merci bien, tu me confortes. Ce n'est pas un crop mais une autre photo que je n'avais pas retenue, la trouvant plate (plus plate que la mer calme un jour d'été sans brise..) --Myrabella (talk) 23:19, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
Si je lis bien ce qui précède : a/ nous sommes trois du même avis au sujet de ce phare : ne change rien, la deuxième mouture me paraît moins intéressante. Il arrive parfois qu'on recueille, sur Commons, des conseils à ne pas suivre... b/ Tu as obtenu, cette année encore, un prix à WLM France : congrats ! J'aurais bien aimé te rencontrer, avec d'autres, à cette occasion. Pour cela, il eût fallu que j'obtinsse un prix (ce qui n'était pas évident) et, tout d'abord, que je participasse (ouf !). Or je n'ai fait ni l'un ni l'autre : je regarderai donc la cérémonie à la télé ! Plus sérieusement, j'espère que, cette fois tu atteindras le podium, voire sa première marche (je croise les doigts) et que l'atmosphère sera aussi cordiale qu'en 2012. Bien amicalement.

Un peu, qu'elle est sur le podium ! Deuxième, même !--Jebulon (talk) 14:44, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Merci cher JLPC ! Pour la photo du phare ajaccien alea jacta est, je l'ai un peu recadrée en enlevant des cailloux du bas, selon une suggestion faite par Christian Ferrer et aussi Jebulon, mais je ne la retoucherai plus, elle me plait comme ça. Pour WLM, je suis très contente de cette distinction. Tu avais fait le choix de ne pas participer, que je respecte - pourtant, que de photos intéressantes documentant mieux encore les églises romanes de Charente ! Pour se rencontrer, c'est simple, tu nous fais signe quand tu viens à Paris. Pour ma part, j'irai sans doute à nouveau à Angoulême pour le prochain festival BD, cela peut faire une autre occasion. Bien amicalement à vous deux, --Myrabella (talk) 14:47, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
I wish you a very very happy and prosperous Diwali. --JoydeepTalk 06:27, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning behind it is "the awareness of the inner light". It is the belief that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atman. The celebration of Diwali as the "victory of good over evil” refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one's true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality. With this awakening come compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). This brings Satcitananda (joy or peace). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light. While the story behind Diwali and the manner of celebration varies from region to, the essence is the same – to rejoice in the Inner Light! And this year Diwali and All Souls' Day come together to fully defeat the Evil! "Happy Diwali!" – JKadavoorJee 09:04, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Chère Myrabella! Je te félicité très chaleureusement pour ta 2e place très mérité dans le WLM du 2013! Tes photos de Corse sont magnifiques et cella particulièrement! --Moonik (talk) 15:45, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Merci pour tes gentils mots! Commons me manque aussi mais je ne pense pas pour l'instant d'y revenir tant que les choses ne changent radicalement! Par contre je viendrai avec plaisir pour te féliciter personnellement lors de la cérémonie de remise de prix WLM 2013. Ça pourra être une excellente occasion de revoir tout le monde. A très bientôt je l'espère! --Moonik (talk) 18:17, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

There is one blurry bird (see annotation). Although they are reasonable sharp in full resolution, I suggest to remove the other two birds, because they look like small dust spots in lower resolution. --Cccefalon 18:55, 26 November 2013 (UTC) Done Yes, that was a speedy bird! Removed, as well as the two other ones. --Myrabella 19:30, 26 November 2013 (UTC) Support Ok! --Cccefalon 20:04, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
Bien vu, il doit certainement y avoir une erreur d'identification. D'habitude, Nick identifie justement ses différentes trouvailles, je n'ai donc pas eu le réflexe de vérifier. Je vais lui demander ce qu'il en pense, pour qu'on envisage de renommer le fichier. Amicalement--Citron (talk) 13:59, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
