Номинација[edit]

Ако мислите да сте нашли или направили слику која може да се сматра вредном, онда је додајте испод у секцију номинације, на врх стране путем овог линка.(Упутства)

Пре него што то урадите, осигурајте да сте унели одговарајући опис слике, као и прикладну лиценцу.

Молимо гласајте користећи реч из вашег језика или одговарајуће шаблоне:

  • За - Yes, Sim, Ja, Oui, Sí, Kyllä, 支持 , Tak,...
  • Против - No, Não, Nein, Non, Ei, 反对 , Nie,...

Такође можете користити шаблоне {{Oppose}}(Symbol oppose vote.svg 

Oppose ) и {{Support}}(Symbol support vote.svg  Support ). Такође можете изразити да волите слику са {{I love}}(Nuvola apps package favorite.svgSymbol support vote.svg  Support ) или да сте неутрални {{Neutral}}(Symbol neutral vote.svg  Neutral ).

Молимо покушајте да укључите неколико речи о томе зашто вам се (није) свидела слика, посебно када гласате против.

Политика за кандидате за изабране слике[edit]

  • На крају гласања, резултати ће бити одређени петнаестог дана од номинације.
  • Номинације од анонимних корисника су добродошле
  • Доприноси у разговорима од стране анонимних корисника су добродошли
  • Гласови анонимних корисника се не рачунају
  • Номинације се не рачунају као гласови. Подршка мора да буде експлицитно изречена.
  • Номинатори могу да повуку своју номинацију било када.
  • Запамтите, циљ Викимедијине Оставе је да пружи централну базу за слободне слике које би се могле користити у свим Викимедијиним пројектима, укључујући и могуће будуће пројекте. Ово није проста остава за википедијине слика, тако да о сликама не треба судити према томе да ли одговарају неком пројекту.
  • Слике могу да се уклоне са списка уколико немају подршке (не рачунајући номинаторов глас) после седмог дана.

Кандидат ће постати изабрана слика у складу са следећим условима:

  • Одговарајућа лиценца (наравно)
  • Најмање 7 гласова подршке
  • Однос гласова за и против мора да буде најмање 2:1 (двотрећинска већина)
  • Код две различите верзије исте слике, не могу обе бити изабране, већ само она са већим бројем гласова.

За упутства о томе како се процесују старе номинације, погледајте Template talk:Featured pictures candidates#What to do after voting is finished.

Кандидати за уклањање статуса изабране слике[edit]

Током времена, стандарди за изабране слике се мењају. Може бити одлучено да за неке слике које су некада биле "довољно добре", ово више није случај. Овде се наводе слике за које сматрате да више не заслужују да буду изабране. Ово захтева двотрећинску већину (и минимум од 5 гласова) за уклањање статуса. Ако нема 2/3 за уклањање, слика остаје изабрана. За ове радње, гласајте са {{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg 

Keep (заслужује да остане изабрана слика) или or {{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg  Delist (не заслужује да више буде изабрана слика). Молимо пружите и линк ка оригиналној номинацији за изабрану слику (појавиће се под "Links" на страни са описом слике). За остало, иста правила важе као и изнад. Молимо користите овај линк како бисте додали новог кандидата за уклањање статуса

Old woman grey hair wrinkled skin from Laos
  • Probably this right thing you're talking about is a fisher net. Thanks -- Basile Morin (talk) 08:02, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment I know she is old and probably a bit worn out so she hunches. Unfortunately this angle makes her head look too big for her body, it almost looks like the image of the head is tacked onto a pic of the body. The light on her face is great but the whole thing looks a little strange. --Cart (talk) 09:29, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • I understand, but some deviation from this angle or posture would have been better. --Cart (talk) 11:47, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg  Oppose Per Cart. It may well be "life" but as a photographer you have choices about angle-of-view, how to crop and whether to use a longer more-flattening focal length. Skin looks like too much noise reduction applied. Btw, I'm really, not keen to reduce photos of people to simply the sum of some (often negative) visible attributes: old woman; white shirt; grey hair; wrinkled skin. Doesn't seem very respectful. In the other photo, she's a "grandmother", which is a nicer way to describing a fellow human being. -- Colin (talk) 11:53, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg  Info about changing the angle. This person has a twisted back File:Old_woman_of_Don_Puay_grey_hair_wrinkled_skin_twisted_back.jpg. This was the best angle I could get -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:04, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • That photo is much better wrt her posture in the composition, giving a flow to the head and body. Nothing that looks 'tacked on' in that. Her head is gently titled and the neck creates a nice line down to her blose which is so generous that you don't think about her back if hadn't been in the file name. --Cart (talk) 12:30, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

All these dust spots are future snowflakes, and there is one at the very center of the snowflake.

I think it would be a big help for you to read the Image Guidelines first, so you know what is expected from an FP.

Our Lady of Grace church, Beaver Creek, Yukon, Canada

  • Pictogram voting info.svg  Info Catholic church of Our Lady of Grace, Beaver Creek, Yukon, Canada. This original small church belongs to the Diocese of Whitehorse and was built by Father Morriset in 1962 using a Butler hut (a redesign of the famous Quonset hut) left by the US Army after construction of the Alaska Highway was completed. The church is located in an area with a very low population density and Beaver Creek, the last populated place in Canada before Alaska, has a population of 93 (2016).

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg  Oppose Fine for 10 years ago but not acceptable for a studio image from 2017. Our guidelines strongly discourage downsizing. High JPG compression and posterised lighting. No colourspace specified/embedded. Yann, none of our Commons regular photographers would get away with nominating 3.95MP studio image in 2018. Why don't you try contacting the photographer to upload their 16MP original (assuming it is like their other photos) and we can then judge it against what the finest photographers on Commons are nominating in 2018. -- Colin (talk) 20:12, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Colin: What makes you know that it is a studio image (i.e. not a real show)? Regards, Yann (talk) 06:57, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Because all their other photos are studio photos. And the lighting. -- Colin (talk) 08:04, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
  • That this is staged was my first reaction to it. Had it been a real show, there wouldn't have been a wall that close behind the dancers. The flow of her hair and the fabric would also require a big fan or wind machine, you don't get that from motion alone. Plus the light, stage spotlights create much harder shadows than this. (I've seen hundreds of ballets and danced myself, so gut feeling.) --Cart (talk) 08:43, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg  Support Basically per Poco. The only weakness (I agree) is the resolution. It's only a 4 Mpx image, well. But the minimum accepted here is 2 Mpx, necessary for a good quality print. That's twice bigger than the minimum. Sure it's not huge, it's not 4K for example. But this is clearly a professional picture, taken with technical accessories, and rarer thing, involving professional dancers. How many of us regular photographers take and nominate on Commons such kind of original pictures ? This image is special in its kind, and will be interesting to enrich the collection, because it doesn't look like any other. I also rather like the composition with the red scarf floating in the wind and the entwined people choreographing -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:09, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
    • Basile Morin, question. Are you going to commit from now on to only reviewing other images here at 3.95MP, i.e. long axis no larger than 2400px. That means never again complaining about noise, CA, sharpness, oversharpening halos, etc, etc. Because, from 24/36/42/50MP camera downsized to 3.95MP, none of those things will be visible. The 2MP standard was set when a TV resolution was 720 × 525 (0.38MP) and HDTV wasn't available. This doesn't even fit a QHD monitor, never mind the 4K TVs being sold in supermarkets. This resolution is too low to print even one page of a glossy magazine. How about if the rest of us started uploading at 3.95MP too ... would you still support? I agree it is a well taken image, if a bit contrived/unrealistic, but I don't see why the photographer can't be asked to upload the 16MP original. -- Colin (talk) 08:06, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Sharpness, noise, etc. are important to take in consideration when the size of the image is essential. Landscapes for example. This kind of picture is special, perhaps limit with the size, and of course it would be better to get a higher res, but in the uncertainty I decide to support as it is -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:10, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

The light is nice in both pictures, but this one feels to me like a photo of a phenomenon, not a picture with such a compelling composition. At least 3 people would seem to disagree with me. I'll live with this a little longer, because there's something to be said about the light itself creating a shape, but I'm currently leaning toward opposing this one. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:55, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

This shouldn't be declared a requirement for support. Most people here are photographers in the first place - not botanists. ;-) --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 05:52, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
I understand that, but this is FPC, and I think that for this photo to be truly outstanding, the tree, which is a primary subject and for its particular shape as a deciduous tree with leaves, really should be identified. Johann, if you're confident, we can add that category and be done with it. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:17, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
I'm not absolutely sure about the determination of a fraxinus excelsior (ash, European ash, common ash), but the shape of the leaves give a strong hint to my conjesture. I am around 95% confident that the deciduous tree is an ash. -- Johann Jaritz (talk) 07:39, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Spruce tree stump in Gullmarsskogen ravine
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Natural
  • Pictogram voting info.svg  Info The ravine in Gullmarsskogen Nature Reserve is carved out by a stream and tall trees grow both in and around the ravine. The ravine is in an almost perpetual dusk, even on sunny days, the sun only pierce the foliage with bright spots of light. (More info at the category) This creates an almost magical light down in the ravine, but it is also very difficult to handle when shooting. Even HDR is sometimes not enough with the extremely bright spots next to darkness. I have tried to fix up the photos of the scenes as they appear IRL.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment I know she is old and probably a bit worn out so she hunches. Unfortunately this angle makes her head look too big for her body, it almost looks like the image of the head is tacked onto a pic of the body. The light on her face is great but the whole thing looks a little strange. --Cart (talk) 09:29, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • I understand, but some deviation from this angle or posture would have been better. --Cart (talk) 11:47, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg  Oppose Per Cart. It may well be "life" but as a photographer you have choices about angle-of-view, how to crop and whether to use a longer more-flattening focal length. Skin looks like too much noise reduction applied. Btw, I'm really, not keen to reduce photos of people to simply the sum of some (often negative) visible attributes: old woman; white shirt; grey hair; wrinkled skin. Doesn't seem very respectful. In the other photo, she's a "grandmother", which is a nicer way to describing a fellow human being. -- Colin (talk) 11:53, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

  • That photo is much better wrt her posture in the composition, giving a flow to the head and body. Nothing that looks 'tacked on' in that. Her head is gently titled and the neck creates a nice line down to her blose which is so generous that you don't think about her back if hadn't been in the file name. --Cart (talk) 12:30, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg  Oppose Fine for 10 years ago but not acceptable for a studio image from 2017. Our guidelines strongly discourage downsizing. High JPG compression and posterised lighting. No colourspace specified/embedded. Yann, none of our Commons regular photographers would get away with nominating 3.95MP studio image in 2018. Why don't you try contacting the photographer to upload their 16MP original (assuming it is like their other photos) and we can then judge it against what the finest photographers on Commons are nominating in 2018. -- Colin (talk) 20:12, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Colin: What makes you know that it is a studio image (i.e. not a real show)? Regards, Yann (talk) 06:57, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Because all their other photos are studio photos. And the lighting. -- Colin (talk) 08:04, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
  • That this is staged was my first reaction to it. Had it been a real show, there wouldn't have been a wall that close behind the dancers. The flow of her hair and the fabric would also require a big fan or wind machine, you don't get that from motion alone. Plus the light, stage spotlights create much harder shadows than this. (I've seen hundreds of ballets and danced myself, so gut feeling.) --Cart (talk) 08:43, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg  Oppose per Colin. Daniel Case (talk) 13:42, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg  Support Basically per Poco. The only weakness (I agree) is the resolution. It's only a 4 Mpx image, well. But the minimum accepted here is 2 Mpx, necessary for a good quality print. That's twice bigger than the minimum. Sure it's not huge, it's not 4K for example. But this is clearly a professional picture, taken with technical accessories, and rarer thing, involving professional dancers. How many of us regular photographers take and nominate on Commons such kind of original pictures ? This image is special in its kind, and will be interesting to enrich the collection, because it doesn't look like any other. I also rather like the composition with the red scarf floating in the wind and the entwined people choreographing -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:09, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
    • Basile Morin, question. Are you going to commit from now on to only reviewing other images here at 3.95MP, i.e. long axis no larger than 2400px. That means never again complaining about noise, CA, sharpness, oversharpening halos, etc, etc. Because, from 24/36/42/50MP camera downsized to 3.95MP, none of those things will be visible. The 2MP standard was set when a TV resolution was 720 × 525 (0.38MP) and HDTV wasn't available. This doesn't even fit a QHD monitor, never mind the 4K TVs being sold in supermarkets. This resolution is too low to print even one page of a glossy magazine. How about if the rest of us started uploading at 3.95MP too ... would you still support? I agree it is a well taken image, if a bit contrived/unrealistic, but I don't see why the photographer can't be asked to upload the 16MP original. -- Colin (talk) 08:06, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Sharpness, noise, etc. are important to take in consideration when the size of the image is essential. Landscapes for example. This kind of picture is special, perhaps limit with the size, and of course it would be better to get a higher res, but in the uncertainty I decide to support as it is -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:10, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment - I think the other photo has a much better composition, with the bright leaves extending diagonally from the upper right to the lower left. The light is nice in both pictures, but this one feels to me like a photo of a phenomenon, not a picture with such a compelling composition. At least 3 people would seem to disagree with me. I'll live with this a little longer, because there's something to be said about the light itself creating a shape, but I'm currently leaning toward opposing this one. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:55, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

This shouldn't be declared a requirement for support. Most people here are photographers in the first place - not botanists. ;-) --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 05:52, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
I understand that, but this is FPC, and I think that for this photo to be truly outstanding, the tree, which is a primary subject and for its particular shape as a deciduous tree with leaves, really should be identified. Johann, if you're confident, we can add that category and be done with it. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:17, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
I'm not absolutely sure about the determination of a fraxinus excelsior (ash, European ash, common ash), but the shape of the leaves give a strong hint to my conjesture. I am around 95% confident that the deciduous tree is an ash. -- Johann Jaritz (talk) 07:39, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Spruce tree stump in Gullmarsskogen ravine
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Natural
  • Pictogram voting info.svg  Info The ravine in Gullmarsskogen Nature Reserve is carved out by a stream and tall trees grow both in and around the ravine. The ravine is in an almost perpetual dusk, even on sunny days, the sun only pierce the foliage with bright spots of light. (More info at the category) This creates an almost magical light down in the ravine, but it is also very difficult to handle when shooting. Even HDR is sometimes not enough with the extremely bright spots next to darkness. I have tried to fix up the photos of the scenes as they appear IRL. I really like this tall tree stump with the small new sapling growing in front of it. A promise of new life next to the old dead tree. All by me, -- Cart (talk) 09:57, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
