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

Fra et romersk osteria[edit]

Maleriet er nu FP, og jeg tænkte hvornår skal det være dagens billede, en mulighed er den 23. maj (i et ledigt år) det er da:Carl Blochs fødselsdag. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 19:09, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Det var da en god idé Villy! Jeg finder et ledigt år og smider den ind der. -- Slaunger (talk) 19:23, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
@Villy Fink Isaksen:. Det blev næste år. Er beskrivelsen, som den skal være, synes du? -- Slaunger (talk) 15:07, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Først fandt jeg det for kort, men det er jo ikke en artikel. Men det kunne godt fortælles at det var en testamentarisk gave i 1935, i stedet for bare "acquired". Se evt. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 15:30, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

About File:PMG-1 fire engine.jpg[edit]

Hello, Kim!

Many thanks for the reviewing of File:PMG-1 fire engine.jpg.

If you are interested in EXIF-data of this photo, I wrote basic data on the file talk page. As of the shallow DoF, I completely agree with you: it is rather shallow. I had doubts about the QI nomination of the photo. As well the shadows are rather noisy, in whole I masked the noise (not without faults, as I see today), but the radiator and intake hoses aren't quite problem-free about the noise.

Have a nice day, Dmitry Ivanov (talk) 10:19, 2 May 2015 (UTC).

@Dmitry Ivanov:: I have transferred the EXIF data to the file page using the {{Photo Information}} template. Please double-check that the data are correct. I am surprised of the shallow DoF considering it is f/11. Maybe a bit of camera shake as well as the 1/100 s shutter? Have a nice day too! Smile -- Slaunger (talk) 10:27, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
And for me the good light and colours mitigates the minor DoF/softness issue. -- Slaunger (talk) 10:27, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
The EXIF data are quite correct.
As of the shallow rear end of the truck: yes, may be the shaking of the camera plaid its negative role. Idontknow Also, I have to note, that a distance between the camera and the truck was rather short: it was impossible to take this photo from a long distance. In such conditions, and with the focus on the cab, the rear of a rather long truck quite could get out of the DoF even with F11 and rather short focal length.
Dmitry Ivanov (talk) 20:56, 2 May 2015 (UTC).
@Dmitry Ivanov: You are quite right. I just checked with DOFmaster using your camera settings. Assuming the distance was 2 m(?), the DOF is approximately 1.65 m and extends from 1.5-3.15 m from the camera. You have to choose an extremely small aperture, like f/19 to get sufficient DOF, but then diffraction effects comes in leading to an overall washed-out effect. Another option would be to go to, e.g., 25 mm focal length. Assuming a distance of 2 m, you would get a DOF of almost 6 m @ f/11, but then you would probably have to crop afterwards. Compromises, compromises... You probably did nearly as well as was possible given the boundary conditions.Smile -- Slaunger (talk) 21:14, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Ugh! Thank you very much for the “tip-off” about so useful DoF calculator! (P.S. According the EXIF data of the initial photo the focus distance was 2.24 m). Dmitry Ivanov (talk) 21:39, 2 May 2015 (UTC).
Dmitry a near limit of 1.5 m and a far limit of 3.1 m. What we see makes sense then Smile. At a 25 mm focal length it would have been 1.2-7.0 m. I wish my camera displayed those near and far limits in the view finder when I changed the focal length and the aperture. The relations are complicated and hard to get a good feeling of in the field, especially when you have to make a fast decision about the optimal aperture and focal length for a given scenario! -- Slaunger (talk) 21:56, 2 May 2015 (UTC)


  • J’essai de relancer le module MVR. Il y a 3 packs qui sont correctement fermés. Deux date de novembre mais il semble que le boot ne les voit pas. J’ai fermé le dernier Pack mais je ne sais pas où le mettre car il n’y a pas de le place désignée pour lui. Peux-tu m’aider ?
  • I try to revive the MVR module. There are 3 packs, which are properly closed. Two of November but it seems that the boot does not see them. I closed the last Pack but I do not know where to put it because there are no designated places for him. Can you help me?  --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 14:08, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
    Bonsoir Archaeodontosaurus !
    I would like to help, but first I need to get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing?
    I have not been involved in the MVR process for years, and I feel I am not entirely up-to-date with the current status.
    I assume you have tried to follow the already described process for MVR closure?
    Are there one or more particular steps in this process, which does or do not work as intended?
    Are you looking for further automation? (I agree the process described there is tedious, and we really ought to get it further automated).
    -- Slaunger (talk) 20:34, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
For example: the pack "Doris Day" is, I believe, properly closed. At the fourth step I have to place it in the monthly archive page, but this page does not seem to exist. (The most important thing is to restart, after we will see if that could be made better.) --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 17:16, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
I cannot find any links to an MVR concerning "Doris Day"? If I use Fast CCI, I cannot even find a VI of "Doris Day" using Doris Day as root category for searching? However, I think one of your problems may have been that Commons:Closed most valued reviews has not been maintained in 2015 with links ot new archive subpages for closed MVRs. I have added those now, meaning that it should be possible to actually follow the process again.
I'm in England the next few days, and will not have time for Commons while there, but maybe by the end of next week, we can continue the discussion? -- Slaunger (talk) 20:29, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
OK I'll try. I am in Venice for a while. there is nothing urgent. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 07:24, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment a lot! :) --Laitche (talk) 20:53, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Laitche: And thanks for your reviews as well. I appreciate your comments in general. You have a sharp eye on improvable issues with nominations, and it is very instructive to read your reviews.Smile -- Slaunger (talk) 21:12, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I really appreciate you and your comments and felt I should say what I am thinking about that photo without any flattering remark. --Laitche (talk) 07:30, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Laitche: Of course you should state what you think and your observations about non-ideal aspects of the nomination are both spot on and relevant. And, also please do not hold yourself back if you feel the technical issues should lead to an oppose. I strive for doing as well as possible and if I do not reach that bar, I would rather not have my nominations promoted. -- Slaunger (talk) 15:58, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
That Symbol support vote.svg Support and "Nice mode." are my real intention :) When I voted already noticed the posterization almost all over the image (but just a little bit) and I had confidence though purposely used the word maybe and pointed out only one which is most striking part. And seems Diliff said all :) --Laitche (talk) 20:35, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
That purpose means when you refused my comment, I could easily take the comment and the note back... --Laitche (talk) 21:18, 22 May 2015 (UTC)


Excuse please, my english is very bad. Your Photo is very good. We have in .de: - all this pictures are bad. Also I vote with enthusiasm for your Photo. --Ralf Roleček 20:59, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Ralf Roletschek: No problem. Actually, I understand German pretty well, I am just not so good at writing German myself. So I have no problems with your reviews written in German. Thanks for adding my photo to the 'Kaue' articleSmile. I see what you mean with the general bad quality photos in that article. -- Slaunger (talk) 21:09, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
