Формалности[edit]

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

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question - Why so much sky? Also, seeing a sign that says "se vende" and then is cut off, I want to know what they were selling. Could you possibly add a bit more land on the near side and remove some of the sky? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:48, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It is a way to express the folly of borders, the sky is the limit type of thing... The land on the Mexican side was for sale, that could come out... --Tomascastelazo (talk) 23:54, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I understand your poetic point about the sky, though I think the point could still be made with a bit less sky. I'll try to put a suggested crop in the image notes.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is a 120" High Density Polyethylene pipe installation in Mexico City. Plastic pipe installations of this

diameter are rare due to the fact that plastic pipes are a relatively new technological innovation. The pipe will transport 10 cubic meters per second of sewage. -- Tomascastelazo (talk) 23:00, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Perspective is a problem: The things that are leaning this way and that are making me reel a little. Also, the cut-off crane really demands my attention and becomes for me the main subject of the picture. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:25, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It is an aerial shot, thus perspective is inverted from "normal" view. More important however, is what the photograph shows, a 120 inch plastic pipe installation... Not many around. More than aesthetic issues, the important thing is the rare infrastructure event. The way to see this picture is from the engineer perspective, it has a lot of visual information, which to me is the point. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 23:34, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - That could make it a useful VI, but for it to be an FP, it has to have "wow", or something analogous to "wow". Even if I accept the strange perspective, the cut-off crane kills it - that's the first thing I noticed about the picture, even in thumbnail view. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:46, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Ikan Kekek, well, the Wow factor is culturally dependent, Wow for you could not be a Wow for me in any given particular picture based on experience, origin, field of study, etc. To me, even though I took the picture, the picture has a lot of Wow because at least where I am from, this type of civil engineering is not common place. The material is a technological innovation in this application, and to see this moment in its installation is interesting. Pipe is never seen because it is buried, but there is a lot of engineering work behind it. This picture has a lot of technical information, if you know what to look for. BTY, that´s me in the yellow hat. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 05:07, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Very cool that you're there in the yellow hat! But please understand, I'm not saying that the subject is not featurable. My objections have to do with the composition. The pipes are definitely impressive. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:55, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I agree with Uoaei1. I'm not a fanatic about crops always being symmetrical, by any means, but this one makes me feel off-balance. My suggestion would be to include an equivalent amount of additional content to the right, if that's possible. Cutting the chair in the middle on the left side won't produce a good effect. Very high-quality photo, though. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:40, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Excellent composition (I preffer see the border when the columns begin), excellent image size too. There is a small sharpening problem and a good way to fix it is use HDR image or even a tonemapped image the HDR/tonemapping part. Sharpening itself is generally a destructive, however, using a image combination it's not a digital sharpening and could be a answer in this subject. My sharpening procedure is pass "Nik Sharpener Pro" for each raw layer in the HDR/tonemapping before to put the images together. --The Photographer 12:52, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

    • I am confused about the "CA" comment. Also, 100% JPG is not necessary. For Photoshop 11/12 is just fine and the equivalent on Lightroom is 90%. I don't know the optimal setting on GIMP but 100% (no compression) is not necessary for FP. -- Colin (talk) 20:43, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

Are we going to start focus stacking church interiors now too? Please, let's accept reality a little.

Perhaps a stage in your stacking workflow is removing the EXIF data. It is possible to copy EXIF from one file (tiff, jpg, etc) to another using EXIFTOOL. Btw, if these are thin files, why is focus stacking necessary? And how would a 20mm increment help -- surely they are less than 20mm thick? Also, information about stacking and stitching is best put on the file description page, and there are templates to help with this. -- Colin (talk) 12:50, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
    @Colin: ✓ Done 1. I restored the EXIF as you wished. Which is a bit important as this image is not grayscale, it does contain color. 2. Focus stacking was necessary because at f/8, the best aperture of my lens, the DOF wasn't large enough. The 20 mm increments are from left to right in the image, not in depth, I moved the camera along the files to get more resolution. I added that info to the description texts.– Lucas 13:44, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

This one does have a larger image of a nutria, though, and we see both its front and back paws, but its eyes aren't fully open. But my real problem with this photo is the very unsharp ice at the near right corner, which I find just too distracting at full screen and even at thumbnail size. In order to fully crop it out, some pretty aggressive cuts on both the bottom and right would be needed, and then other sides might need to be cropped for balance. I'd like to see the result and would reconsider in that case. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:51, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I like this image since it shows the beauty of Bandy. Bandy is all about speed and movement.

If this photo depicts a unique playing situation or something like that, then it would be a bit different. For example, you describe that Bandy is a fast sport, but the image doesn't show that very well. The dull lighting, the composition that includes too much background for my taste and IMO bad choice for focus on his back is working against it as well. – Lucas 21:42, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

I certainly still have no problem with it; thank you for taking the suggestion. I stand corrected, however, as to my original assessment of the man with his back to us as the goalie—per Ikan I can see he is indeed carrying a stick. Daniel Case (talk) 01:24, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

The castle was built in the late 12th or early 13th centuries on a sandstone outcrop and stands on the site of a former Visigothic and Moorish fortification that fell into Christian hands in 1129. It had considerable strategic importance as a virtually impregnable defensive work on the border between Christian and Muslim-ruled territory. The castle was never conquered and was successfully defended against the King of Castile in the 13th century.

  • And depending on what kind of shots you do, you really needn't be jealous of the 5DS. As it's been discussed, If you are a macro, or still object guy, it won't bring you any much advantage over any other FF or APS-C given sensor of same generation. - Benh (talk) 11:24, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
@Benh: 1. I would love to support this image, but the different levels of sharpness and visible seamline because of it are bothering me. Would this image be of less resolution then it might no be visible even at 100%, but given the resolution, these shortfalls are visible. 2. I haven't followed these discussions. I'd love to have more resolution available for my studio shots, just for the sake of seeing more details, so I'm jealous. --Lucasbosch 12:28, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Lucasbosch, I agree a high-resolution sensor has an advantage for single-shot photos such as your studio. We try to avoid penalising photographers for uploading full-resolution photos or huge stitches like this. Try the 50% downsize I link below. That's still 28MP and very sharp. If you'd support that then there is no reason to not support this. Opposing over 100%-size pixel peeping of a >100MP image just encourages folk to downsize prior to upload, and then we lose detail that can never be retrieved. As I'm fond of saying, if your monitor is a standard 100DPI, then this image is over 4 metres wide, and you'd probably view it from a couple of metres distance at least, rather than normal monitor distance. -- Colin (talk) 12:58, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
@Colin: Thanks for your thorough explanation, I strike my oppose. I would welcome allowing/encouraging photographers to upload downsampled images instead of full sized ones like this, to hide flaws better and avoid pixel peepers like me. In fact I would have downsampled this in secret if I were in the same situation, as the resolution is plenty even downsampled. But I understand that having sharp parts of the image is considered more desirable for the Commons project than having less pixels but with the whole frame being perfect. --Lucasbosch 13:13, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Lucasbosch, if the software can downsize on-the-fly then why downsize on upload? Actually, for huge stitches most photographers already downsize a bit to ensure the detail is sharp, which it is for most of this image. I don't see the point in uploading full size if it is soft/blurry all over, and for big stitches there is no value in making people download a big file that is not sharp. When we get folk uploading 6MP landscapes that pass FP, it isn't really fair to to penalise others who don't downsize. -- Colin (talk) 13:50, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
@Colin: You say yourself that some people already downsize so others don't have do download a panorma that isn't sharp corner to corner. I don't think this image is any different, albeit being much more resolution. My opinion is that such a panorama should have equal sharpness over the full frame, and not rely on downsampling to achieve this. If there is a soft part, downsample until everything is constistent and thus the seamlines become invisible. I find a 100MP image which is soft on some spots and sharp on others kind of more wonky than a pristine 6MP image. I see your point, too, that you throw away detail on parts of the image in the process. So I wouldn't want to penalize him for not downscaling, but the different levels of sharpness which reveal seamlines, and I don't want to see seamlines. I believe in a pixel perfect uploaded file not reliant on downsampling to achieve even sharpness. Even if this requires downsamling before upload. Agree to disagree ;) --Lucasbosch 14:57, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
I appreciate you don't want to see the seamlines, and I wish the stitching was better. But you have a choice to examine the image at this level of detail. Nobody forces you to download the full size image and then display it on your screen at 100% while examining it closely. A good review test might be to judge the whole image fullscreen on your monitor, and then to examine for flaws at some intermediate resolution. If you'd support this at 12MP, say, or 24MP, say, then any extra resolution is simply a bonus. I think that unless the image was huge and very soft/noisy all over, then I'd be reluctant to complain about the size being too large. We have a culture here of pixel peeping that harms people's generosity in uploading/creating high-resolution images (vs Flickr where many images don't even fill one's screen). The result is some photographers really do upload 6MP landscapes from their 36Mp cameras and get and expect to get FP. Of course, minor errors only visible at 100% on a large image may be worth pointing out to see if they can be fixed. If you have a high DPI screen, then much of this pixel peeping concern simply disappears. Our standard 100DPI monitors are the equivalent of taking a magnifying glass to a print. -- Colin (talk) 15:54, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support There is a flawed frame and perhaps the stitching could be improved (IIRC you just use Lightroom - have you tried PtGui with SmartBlend as the blend tool?). But the resolution of 111MP makes this visible at 100%. A reduction (see this link to a 28MP 50% downsize) hides such sharpness problems and the whole image is very sharp indeed. -- Colin (talk) 12:58, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I've uploaded a new version where I cropped the right side a bit to get rid of the area that somehow wasn't as sharp as others. If the result is not satisfying I can offer also this other version with a far wider view. Thank you Benh and Colin for making understandable that images with more resolution are not always comparable with lower ones and users of a camera like 5DS shouldn't be punished for that. It is indeed not as easy as it was with the 5D Mark II to get all images sharp. Poco2 18:09, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Colin did most of the lobbying :) And, pardon me if you already knew, but If your pipeline gives you access to the seam mask, it's very easy to edit it and soften the transition from sharp to blurred area. This would give a better result I think, but this take for granted the "common" area between the source pictures is large enough. - Benh (talk) 18:43, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
The new crop doesn't just chop off a bit on the right, but introduces some to the left. I like the road on the left, but this is a different enough picture that I think you should ping all who have voted so far. It isn't like you just removed a dust spot. As for the other one you link, it is far too wide and also has quality issues. There is still an issue with a seam (to the right of the rocks) that could be handled better if, like Benh says, you took control over the join there (or used Smartblend, which I find is often better are placing seams and not crearting blurred seams). -- Colin (talk) 19:57, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I prefer the crop from the time of original nomination. There's still a visible seam in the new crop, which wouldn't go away unless the you crop much closer to the rock. While now the rock the castle is sitting on is actually centered, the castle itself is now a bit off to much to the side to me.

@Ikan Kekek: The file name is, mainly, "Caye Caulker Belize", which describes the islands, so already the file name is not optimal/confusing if the white thing is the main subject.

Pictogram voting info.svg Info i monitored the whole discussion :) The subject in the middle is called the split:"A narrow waterway known as the Split divides the island in two. Some people state that the Split was created by Hurricane Hattie in 1961 which devastated Belize City, however that is a myth." You can read this here on wiki (eng.). I made some photos of caye caulker from different perspectives. You can find them in wikimedia too. In this photo i wanted to show how caye caulker is divided. The focus here is not the split-- dronepicr ([[User talk:Dronepicr|

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is a 120" High Density Polyethylene pipe installation in Mexico City. Plastic pipe installations of this

diameter are rare due to the fact that plastic pipes are a relatively new technological innovation. The pipe will transport 10 cubic meters per second of sewage. -- Tomascastelazo (talk) 23:00, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Perspective is a problem: The things that are leaning this way and that are making me reel a little. Also, the cut-off crane really demands my attention and becomes for me the main subject of the picture. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:25, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It is an aerial shot, thus perspective is inverted from "normal" view. More important however, is what the photograph shows, a 120 inch plastic pipe installation... Not many around. More than aesthetic issues, the important thing is the rare infrastructure event. The way to see this picture is from the engineer perspective, it has a lot of visual information, which to me is the point. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 23:34, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - That could make it a useful VI, but for it to be an FP, it has to have "wow", or something analogous to "wow". Even if I accept the strange perspective, the cut-off crane kills it - that's the first thing I noticed about the picture, even in thumbnail view. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:46, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Ikan Kekek, well, the Wow factor is culturally dependent, Wow for you could not be a Wow for me in any given particular picture based on experience, origin, field of study, etc. To me, even though I took the picture, the picture has a lot of Wow because at least where I am from, this type of civil engineering is not common place. The material is a technological innovation in this application, and to see this moment in its installation is interesting. Pipe is never seen because it is buried, but there is a lot of engineering work behind it. This picture has a lot of technical information, if you know what to look for. BTY, that´s me in the yellow hat. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 05:07, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Very cool that you're there in the yellow hat! But please understand, I'm not saying that the subject is not featurable.

    @Lucas: I think it's a bad idea. Vertical photo will look unnatural due to the line of the fluid level in an atomiser. Besides in Wikipedia look better horizontal photos.

The near corners are unsharp, so you might consider a crop if it doesn't damage the composition, but otherwise, it's great.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Excellent photo and sharp from left to right. Wrt Ikan's comment, the only bit "unsharp" are the corners of the nearby pews, which are out-of-focus. That's to be expected and in no way harms the composition and square framing. I'm really not sure why one would expect or need them to be in in focus. Are we going to start focus stacking church interiors now too? Please, let's accept reality a little. Having some parts out-of-focus is an indication they are not important and the eye is led elsewhere. -- Colin (talk) 11:04, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
