2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

About portrait of Jean Cocteau[edit]

Thanks for your attention : I vey scarcely have a look at the FP promotion page on the English Wikipedia. Even though it isn't my photo, I worked on it a bit, and the unknown photographer who took it did well imo. I'll thank the nominator soon. Cheers. --JLPC (talk) 21:03, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

by Annotations on gravel pit[edit]

Hi Slaunger

The process in question is simple if viewed only as a size selection by screens, the refinement is to use water to help in the selection process, other equipment only transport ,or ensure a regular supply(and removal) of material for screens (stack of three in this case ). I'm no expert in this area, but I'm a good pequisador and I have facility with natural sciences, technology and bit more, not because of my area of ​​expertise (not always but sometimes), but due to a family trait and natural curiosity. I have a multidisciplinary character.

But to answer your implicit question my area of ​​academic background is chemical engineering, despite considering myself a poet. : ) . Here I keep me as an amateur photographer, after all makes a lot more time that I photograph (as an amateur) than graduated (Ok poet is good ; ) ). Oh yeah, I'm flattered by your interest and thank cordial and friendly manner of his treatment with me.

A great big hug -- Lauro Sirgadocontribs 23:20, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

P.S. Taking advantage, I had no way to ask but there is a piece of equipment right underneath that was out, you would not happen to have a picture of this equipment, I felt that something was missing in the description but do not know without seeing what is, ty.

Bom dia poet Lauro Sirgado,
Thanks for your message, which I enjoyed reading. Yes I do see, that if you just start analysing the image systematically as you have done, there really isn't much ambiguity in the interpretation of what you are seeing.
Reagrding your question about some missing information: Are you referring to the pieces hidden by the foliage in the lower right corner? I do have some other shots from the location, but none, which reveals what is under there, regrettably. Stort knus fra Danmark, -- Slaunger (talk) 19:47, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
God eftermiddag kære Slaunger,
Ok. It was just a curiosity, but from what I saw on google maps is just a fork in the supply system (apparently), I believe that information is not lost there. I have numbered the process flow to facilitate the interpretation.
Knus, -- Lauro Sirgadocontribs 20:47, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
P. S. Håber, at jeg have været ensbetydende rigtigt - og tak for poeten - : )))
Ha ha ha, machine translation(?) sometimes gives funny results. I understood the intention though! Abraços -- Slaunger (talk) 18:49, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes...sniffff, I try.... snifff Redface. A great big hug ; ))) -- Lauro Sirgadocontribs 03:21, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

FPC - Fischerboot vor Bodø[edit]

With the help of Lauro I have found some basic information on the boat. You are right, the internet knows everything. Please have a look:[1]--CHK46 (talk) 14:18, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Nice teamwork! I have now voted. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:02, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for the vote. The immatriculation number N 110 ME is on the top of the steering house next to the name of the ship.--CHK46 (talk) 21:19, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
CHK46: It was not the immatriculation number I was after, but the IMO number, but I have been silly because such small vessels do not have an IMO number. Sorry for the confusion. -- Slaunger (talk) 18:46, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Aleppo Pines grove, Pinet, Hérault 02.jpg[edit]

Hi Slaunger, the last time during this nomination, you were enthusiast. Any feedbacks, even an oppose, for this similar nomination is welcome. Have a nice day. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 12:35, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Nice feedback[edit]

Thank you for your "Thank you" notes on the two KZ aircraft. It's nice to get some positive feedback, which is not so common in "Commons". Vielen Dank! --Uli Elch (talk) 14:39, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Uli Elch. That is the least I could do! So I take some photos of some aircraft, and I know almost nothing about them, but create some categories for them, knowing that they may not be cateogorized as precisely as I may have wanted, as I do not want to categorize them wrongly. And then a helpful soul (you) comes by knowing that one of them is a Twin-piston-engine propeller aircraft (tractor configuration). I had no idea about that, but I appreciate to know that, and I learn something the process as well. That is why I appreciate Commons. I learn all the way. I am a bit sorry, that you feel you are not so often thanked! Keep up your good work! -- Slaunger (talk) 16:47, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Hallo again, thank you for your friendly message and your encouragement. You are quite right - WP is about teamwork. I am only a mediocre photographer, but know a lot about aviation, having been interested in the subject since I was a boy. Then I was lucky enough to turn it into my profession. - When I take pictures of the beautiful round churches on Bornholm, I would not dare either to put them into a very specialized category - other people know more about that subject! - Right now I am in our "sommarstuga" in Halland (förresten med mycket snälla Danskar I grannstugan). Tack igen - --Uli Elch (talk) 18:43, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Haha, you found one of my aircraft cats again! Have fun in Halland (once Danish territory, you knew that?). -- Slaunger (talk) 19:57, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I know very well about "once Danish territory". Slaget ved Axtorna happened 4 km from here. On that occasion the Danes won. But apparently the WP-method of reverting seems to be very old, since nowadays the Danes come only here as peaceful tourists. --Uli Elch (talk) 20:18, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Hahaha. Good point with the WP analogy. Glad to hear the Danes there are peacefull. I think we have "gotten over" the loss of Halland by now. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:24, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations! (from a mediocre photographer) --Uli Elch (talk) 05:59, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Uli Elch! (from a mediocre categorizer) -- Slaunger (talk) 09:23, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
Haha - great - now we are both well categorized, too! --Uli Elch (talk) 14:39, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
Wow ! Excellent. I think I should try something with panos...--Jebulon (talk) 22:14, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
@Jebulon:: Thanks! Yes it is fun. You can start out using Hugin and see what you think of it. A commercial and very similar alternative is PTgui. -- Slaunger (talk) 21:09, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
User:Jebulon, if you want any help with Hugin, give me a shout. DXR also uses it. While I have recently begun taking picutures with Diliff's pano head (with mixed results, due to my own inexperience) I've had plenty success just hand-held. -- Colin (talk) 07:32, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks Colin !--Jebulon (talk) 13:33, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Proposal to select QIC candidates more[edit]

Ok, in the future I will remember your comments. Nice photo :-) --Jacek Halicki (talk) 20:59, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

En mulig fototur i Aarhus[edit]

Aarhus Brandstation har virkelig brug for nye billeder og Samsøgades Skole mangler billeder indenfra. Det kunne være en god mulighed for en fototur sammen. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 08:09, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Ja, det er en god idé. Jeg synes også Den gamle By kunne være interessant. Der er ganske vidst mange billeder derfra, men det må kunne gøres bedre;-). Det får dog desværre vente endnu lidt på sig pga travlhed for mt vedkommende. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:10, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for that smile...[edit]

Hola Slaunger, how are things? Hope all well... Thanks for that smile... I changed the text because of your comment a few weeks ago... I had in the back of my mind that I had to make sure my page did not feel as having a commercial angle. But let me ask you something... How you noticed so quickly??? I did not mention you... Best, --Arturo de Frias Marques (talk)

Bonsoir Arturo de Frias Marques
Sorry for the French greetings, but I am in Lille these daysSmile. Soy muy bien, gracias! I am glad you appreciated the smile. The reason why I noticed so fast is because I have edited your talk page, and then I have setup my preferences such that every page I edit is automatically added to my Watchlist. So when I saw you changing your user page on my Watchlist, I got curious to see what changes you had made, remembering our old commercialization discussion. And then I was glad to see that. 1. You now had a few FPs, and 2. You tweaked the formulation to emphasize that the referenced web pages were not intended as commercial advertising pages:)

one of the best pictures I have ever seen. Sehr schön! (Orientalist in der de:WP)
