  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm not attracted to "effectively" processed images, they too distort reality, especially colors. For encyclopedias are more characteristic of the reflection of the real world.

  • Two photos have been provided to you as comparisons. Not enough of the old city is in this photo, and the composition isn't compelling. And you think FPC in Commons is only about encyclopedias? I think that would be FPC in Wikipedia. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:46, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Isabella Lövin signing climate law referral
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Historical#1990- Now
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Schyffel - uploaded by Axel Pettersson (WMSE) - nominated by W.carter
    The now famous photo where Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lövin signs a climate law referral, witnessed by two State Secretaries and members of her staff. With only women (including one who is visibly pregnant) it is a very non-typical government photo. It is also obvious that the minister is directing her attention to the camera and whoever is watching the photo. It became noticed around the world since it was published only days after the publication of a photo in which Donald Trump signed an executive anti-abortion order (the Mexico City Policy) surrounded by men. Small nice fact: Contrary to most photographers working with government-related material, this photographer is also a Commoner and Wikipedian (former board member of Wikimedia Sweden). -- cart-Talk 14:06, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Am I seeing tilt or perspective distortion? Charles (talk) 10:13, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Absolutely correct perspective was probably not what was most important for the photographer when creating this photo. Any perspective correction would completely ruin the comopsition and it's not important to do such in a photo like this. It is better to have the people depicted in a good way than worry about the proportions of a partial painting in the background. (See almost any photo from the Oval Office.) Like with other famous photos, we have to live the inherent imperfections in them. --cart-Talk 10:45, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • There is no "distortion" and the "perspective" is "correct". If you stood where the camera was, looking with one eye, this is what you'd see. There are conventions surrounding architectural and interior building photography that the camera should be level, perpendicular to the facing wall, and the angle of view not too extreme. They are conventions that tend to produce pleasing results for photographs where the subject has straight lines at 90° to each other. Here, the subject is a group of people, and if you are concentrating on the verticals of the door or painting, then you aren't really looking properly. We had this complaint at File:Khandoba temple Pune.jpg, where the subject is the worshipers, and it went on to win 1st prize in WLM. Where do you look in this photo: File:Marilyn Monroe photo pose Seven Year Itch.jpg ;-) -- Colin (talk) 11:36, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Please don't tell me that I'm not "really looking properly". That's patronising. In this image the camera is not "perpendicular to the facing wall". Easily corrected. An important image, but not FP. Charles (talk) 19:53, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

(Edit conflict)*Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose A very interesting photo, I can see why it intrigues you. You could guess that the very exact triple exposure is a result of the ground shaking when the gun fired. Unfortunately it is in rather poor condition with scratches, dust and spots, and I would suggest that you restore it the same way many other FPs of historical photos have been and re-nominate it after that. --cart-Talk 11:58, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

If we're going to put up with the compromises that result from shooting a live act (high noise, weird colours from lighting, narrow DoF, etc) then I'd like to see the live act. Here is just a B&W photo of hands holding a guitar, which one could create with any anonymous model in the studio with much more pleasing results. -- Colin (talk) 13:05, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Perhaps, but there is always a je-ne-sais-qoui part/mood to a real live concert photo that is hard to duplicate in a studio shot. --cart-Talk 13:39, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • I did a Google image search from the file description page and nearly every b&w image returned included the artists's head. Without that, there's no identity and no life to this "live performance". Many of the search results also are more dynamic in pose/action, whereas this is a very classic guitar hold with no apparent movement. The landscape format makes me think the head is cropped off, though it is more likely the camera was just held that way. -- Colin (talk) 13:58, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Mmmh. FWIW, for me it is very apparent that this is a live performance. "[A]ny anonymous model" won't do for this kind of thing, you'll need an actual guitar player for this or it'll look utterly fake. But I see your point regarding the crop – and I think it could possibly help to crop even more on the top and right. Regarding the noise, I wonder how it would look like had it been shot on actual black & white film (something like Delta 3200 pushed a stop or two). I'm still undecided … --El Grafo (talk) 14:51, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • El Grafo, you're going to tell me now that the models in "Addicted to Love" aren't actual guitar players ;-). Ok, "model" was probably the wrong word, but any modestly able guitar player would do. All I can see here is a white male in a dark t-shirt holding some random guitar.

The sawing machine is also very different from each other. I also commented on that. Once again your photo is perfect, but it looks like the other photos. But that is my personal opinion.--Famberhorst (talk) 07:02, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
      • I'll leave others to judge the differences between your images, but I don't think there are arbritrary limits on FPs. You may know, for instance, that there are 34 Featured pictures of Ardea, many of the same species - and herons are not more diverse and attractive than the kingfisher family - though I'm biased as I love kingfishers and they are so much more challenging to photograph than herons!

I have put the new links on the file's page. One pdf lists all the rolls of film taken by the White House photographers during 1983, complete with contact sheets and everything (frame 32). Pretty cool! So the name of the photographer is no longer a mystery (it's Michael Evans) and you can apparently order larger files from the library if you want. A fun thing is looking at the other photos in this roll plus the one before and after so you get coverage of the whole event.

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question I'm a little confused here. Is the proposal here that we delist one sectional map and replace it with one sectional map plus two one-file maps? --cart-Talk 12:23, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
    • W.carter, that's why the new set is better. --Paris 16 (talk) 15:22, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
  • You're proposing to delist a single file in favor of a set? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:20, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - You aren't showing an old set, only a single currently featured file that you want replaced with a set. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:29, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
  • The old set is above.--Paris 16 (talk) 06:31, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info @Ikan Kekek:, @Daniel Case: and anyone else interested. The whole sets are displayed above. The twenty images that each of the sets consists of are just displayed in a grid of thumbs instead of one after the other, so they make up what looks like one single "picture" in the nomination. Depending on which square you click on in the "picture", you will be directed to a different file. If you open the editing window, you can see the name of each file listed. This nom is about replacing the 20 files of the original set with a new set of 20 files + two new files: one file that is all of the set images put together in a single file and one file that is a simplified version of that "merged" file with just the streets and major features and not all the little houses drawn. --cart-Talk 08:42, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, I see. Thanks for explaining. The proposed substitution is better, even without considering the two additional files. Symbol redirect vote.svg Delist and replace . Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:08, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose While it is better than File:Nymphaea alba in Duisburg.jpg it is not as good as File:Adarga (Nymphaea alba), Ciudad Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, 2013-08-14, DD 01.jpg, which has a more interesting angle than "point camera down at flower and press button". All flowers are pretty, so I think it requires some composition cleverness and excellent technique to get FP. Here the flowers are bright sunlit so detail is lost. The surrounding leaves, which aren't very photogenic here, are sharp and a bit distracting. -- Colin (talk) 12:21, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Colin. Though I do almost feel like I can smell the flower looking at the image in closeup. Daniel Case (talk) 03:35, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I sort of like all the different kinds of bugs you can see when zoomed all the way in. It was enough to hold my interest. –Juliancolton | Talk 03:42, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Per Julian. -- Johann Jaritz (talk) 07:35, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Contrary to Colin, I think that "point and click" photos can sometimes work, but then the conditions need to perfect. You need better light than this to get the structure of the flower, the surroundings and background needs to be good; here the leaves have seen better days and there are intrusive shadows (stems, stalks?) crossing the top of the photo. Unlike Daniel, I don't imagine smelling the flower here only the stagnant water. --cart-Talk 12:21, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
