SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • I've got this lens and know how better it can be at 400mm, handheld with the stabilization. But the subject is interesting enough to strike my vote -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:56, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support a great, possibly iconic shot that just shouldn't be overly pixelpeeped... honestly, I don't know what could have been done better. Equipment and exif look perfectly fine to me. --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 07:41, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • I've seen jaguars in the Pantanal and they are not that colour. Charles (talk) 07:47, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • I disagree the sharpness is an issue. The technical quality seems fine for a 400mm telephoto. At 6MP it looks completely sharp and would print A4 just fine. Charles, what specifically is wrong with the colour? Do you think the white balance is wrong? Surely the colour will change somewhat depending on ambient light. -- Colin (talk) 09:02, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Colour is too orange - check out the colour of the eyes - no other images on Google show this colour. Charles (talk) 12:56, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • If you take away the ambient soft yellow light and make the WB totally neutral (I did that in PS), you can see that there is something orange reflected in the jaguar's eyes. Orange is a preferred color to wear among some game keepers (and hunters) since many animals are color blind and they perceive it as grey while we humans can see each other even in dense foliage. This might be something like that reflecting. --Cart (talk) 15:02, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • No it's not a reflection. 400mm lens. It's a false colour. Charles (talk) 20:55, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support, along similar lines as Martin. This reminds me of an illustration from "Where the Wild Things Are", except that it's a real wild thing and a real photo. Also reminds me of paintings by Le Douanier Rousseau. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:10, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is a picture more than a photo (and those are rare here at FPC) so composition and wow overrules technical pixel-peep-perfection. The overall light in the pic is warm, creating an ambiance, so it's normal that the jaguar gets a hint of that tone too. --Cart (talk) 11:26, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Beautiful composition, and the crop resulted in a big improvement. I frankly don't care about the degree of sharpness of the trees in a photo that's so based on the rhythm of the eyes moving around the picture frame that that abstract element is much more important than the details on the individual trees. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 16:18, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

Hermione (ship, 2014)
  • Unfortunately even very small things can disturb a photo. Might be hard to clone these out though. --Cart (talk) 14:14, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very nice blue hour shot. --Code (talk) 10:26, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per Cart. The yellow flag looking like a ghost is more disturbing than the garbage bins, but both attract the eyes immediately after the ship. They're located in front, just in the middle. Also I wonder if this saturated blue is not overprocessed -- Basile Morin (talk) 10:54, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per above, the subject is though FP-worthy. I wonder whether it would have been possible to take the image from the front Poco2 12:39, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I agree with Basile, this one is far below the quality you usually present here. Clearly it is more challeging to get there for tiny objects but I believe that there is room for improvement, sorry Poco2 12:35, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree that the quality of the shell photos I usually present here is better. But I please you to note, that such tiny objects can not be photographed with a normal camera. All my photos of tiny shells, see for example the Caecidae or Rissoidae photos, are made with a binocular microscope, which does never reach (and is also not comparable with) the quality of pictures of a good "normal" camera. --Llez (talk) 13:16, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
      • Ok, I strike through my vote as I've no experience in this kind of photography, and therefore I don't really feel qualified to judge the result Poco2 18:21, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
Actually I've that lens (and in that cat there are a few QIs of mine) but so far I just used it outdoors, which is really hard. I'll try to take some studio images of tiny objects with my 5DS R, I didn't try that yet. Poco2 18:04, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info For the shell photos I normally use a 60mm Tamron Macro objective, which is comparable to the Canon lens mentioned above. This objective is useful for objects (e.g. shells) down to 6 mm (of course I made this photo with the 60mm Macro). All objects, which are smaller can't be photographed picture-filling any more, for you can't go closer to the object. This means, the smaller the object, the smaller is the object on the photo and the more empty space you have (and the more quality loss you have). Therefore I use for objects smaller than 6 mm not a normal camera with macro lens but an UCMOS 14000KPA camera (4096 x 3288 px) in combination with a microscope or a binocular mircoscope respectively, which allows picture filling photos of objects from 6 mm down to 10 μm (!), an object size, which is impossible to photograph with a normal macro lens. All my photos of shells, of which the size is below 7 mm, are made with the UCMOS 14000KPA. --Llez (talk) 14:56, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Interesting. I've added two categories : Pareidolias and Condoms. If not in the description, what makes this picture special should be mentioned somewhere on the file page, I think -- Basile Morin (talk) 02:27, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
  • I question adding category:condoms, since this is not a condom. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:32, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • True, but shall we create the new category "condom-shaped objects", considering this will be the only file in this sub-cat, and will probably remain as it for quite a while ? This is not a condom, but this is not a "condom in art" neither, nor any other existing category-related file. If created, "Condoms in nature" would sound strange Face-smile.svg. Also, "Condoms" seems very general here, and all the pictures of condoms are more in this sub-Category:Condoms_by_sex (male and female), that's why I think "Condoms" is a good choice for now. But any better suggestion ? welcome -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:00, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
  • I don't think we need to have categories for everything that looks like something else. Basic shapes are enough. We also don't need to put every object that might look like something into a category for that, otherwise you would have to put every elongated object, obelisk or structure into Category:Penis-shaped objects. --Cart (talk) 10:06, 22 April 2018 (UTC)
  • I totally disagree. What makes this picture special, in my opinion, is that it looks like a condom, more than a shell ! Kind of prehistoric condom at first sight :-) The resemblance is amazing, and the illusion is so strong that the author mentionned it straight at the top of their nomination :"No, it is NOT what you think it is on the first sight ! Face-smile.svg". Exactly the same impression I had when I discovered this shape of a shell : it clearly looks like a male contraceptive. Not only an elongated shape that would make it approximately similar, but also something hollow on the base with a roll aspect, and the most caracteristic detail, a kind of reservoir on the top ! That's just awesome for a coincidence. This definitely creates a good pareidolia, that means a "psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus being perceived as significant". Sorry but I can't look at this shell without thinking to a condom (not my fault it's a sexual-related subject), as I can't look at this rock without thinking to an elephant. Same degree of proximity, and that's perfectly normal to read "elephant" in the description of this file. Would be ridiculous to remove the appropriate category and say "Well, it's just a saltwork formation in a desert in reality, not an elephant" ! In Thailand, there is a famous site in Koh Samui with two rocks displaying a phallus and a vulva. This site attracts a lot of visitors every day and Wikimedia has a Category:Hin_Ta_Hin_Yai which is of course included in the categories Phallic symbols and Vulva symbols. That's the logics. Concerning the Category:Penis-shaped_objects, it's perfectly legitimate to find inside these knockers, but what would be worth the picture without mentionning this particular aspect of the metallic object ? Insignificant. I've uploaded a stain on Commons a few years ago File:Pareidolia_stain_on_wall_as_map_of_France.jpg and this work would lose absolutely all its content if the illusion of the map of France was not mention anywhere on the file. We would just see this spot like another ordinary stain, and above all quite a bad photo ! I'm not saying Llez's shell is bad (the only reason I don't support the nomination is because I find the quality a bit too low, however the picture is really great, and fortunately we also have great pictures on Commons which are not necessarily featured). Just what makes this photo awesome, in my opinion, apart from the fact it is a very small object, it is that it looks like a condom, and this is exceptional, yes. The Category:Penis-shaped_objects would fit approximately, and Condoms too, but this last one is more precize in my opinion. Most of the examples of pareidolias on Google are heads and faces with eyes and mouth. When they're not fakes, such objects resembling to other objects are really very rare. Here we're confused by the reality and need to look at twice ! This file is then an excellent example of this kind of illusion, and should thus be promoted as such without ambiguity. It doesn't spoil the shell characteristics, it just brings an extra value, which may attracts more views to this tiny specimen among its huge collection. This shell definitely generates a pareidolia, and as part of this phenomenon, which object does it evoke ? A condom. -- Basile Morin (talk) 02:57, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Oh! And here I thought it was a dildo, with a bunny-ear-tickler on top and a switch for the vibrator at the bottom. Face-smile.svg I guess men and women are used to using different things and we see things differently. I think you have become a bit fixated with this. --Cart (talk) 08:52, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
