  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Pictures like this should always contain a foreground, a middle ground and a background as shown, for example, in http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/1_L_gcgnxTlaypPtW_XI8Q109807/GW417H352 As you can notice you have a foreground here (some branches of trees) and a background with more trees but the middleground is completely missing: only a large portion of empty and uninteresting water (a small boat or a swan would hav helped..). You might try to approach these kinds of composition by dividing the frame in three layers as shown in the link and you will notice a big improvement in your compositions:-) Every layer should show something interesing.Paolobon140 (talk) 10:46, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

The western facade of Schloss Falkenlust
  • Fair enough, Laitche. What I tried to do was to get a good shot of the little palace not too long before sunset (i.e. almost during golden hour). The problem with Falkenlust is that it's a) surrounded by trees and b) slightly facing NW, giving the sun a hard time beating the trees, even in fall. ;-) So I hoped (I believe successfully) to compromise: while avoiding harsh, boring midday light that would have fully illuminated the façade, I went there significantly later but still early enough to catch enough light to avert really dark shadows. --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 12:58, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

But I do not understand the reason for this nominatiom. I know, that you have a lot of FP on Wiki (some of them are also problematic from my point of view), but why this one...?? Three tree trunks cutted in let say 1.5 m height and nothint else? Maybe there is some small beetle, which is centre of picture and I do not see it (my weak glasses???)... I am sorry, but for sure I have no strong estetic sense, or how to call it, and only things which I feel looking on picture are: Have I enough wood for heating in my weekend house for this winter? and Is my chainsaw well adjusted for next work?

  • We are all from different cultures and have different views of what is beautiful and how things are done. We can't all agree on what is the best way, that would be boring. Btw, we use wood like that since we can get more material from a tree that way. It saves trees and is good for the environment.

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Most QI and FP gifs are well below 2MP simply because they are many pictures stacked. Most normal software can't even produce complicated gifs as big as 2MP and the wiki software also distort the color in large gifs when they are shown in thumb. Please take a look at Commons:Featured pictures/Animated, one of the gif FPs there is only 280 × 233 pixels. This is actually a rather complicated gif, it is made up from 170 images whereas most normal good gifs are made up of 10-35 images. That is why it has to be made this small. When judging a gif, you need to look at both the "picture" like any normal photo but also look at how many images it is composed of and how it displays on the screen. The movement should be smooth and not jerk around too much. --cart-Talk 09:40, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

I also think there was and is a little optical illusion going on because of the curved tree trunk that is right beside it.

  • Did you not read my comment on the newest upload? The original author deliberately added grain to the file, so I removed a significant amount of it. As you can see, it is still too noisy for reviewers, which means I should've been even more aggressive with the NR. Noise levels directly correlate with filesize, and as the author added grain to this, the filesize was enormous. In short - bigger filesizes are often not a good thing. What you're seeing here is not the result of a JPG quality slider being set to excessive compression settings. -- Thennicke (talk) 22:52, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

  • @Colin: I've had a think about this and I partially disagree about your comment re. contrast. I think you're right to disagree with me increasing the blackness of the shadows, because black is the absence of photons, and on a foggy day there will be no such absence due to all the reflected light. But I also think you're wrong to disagree with me increasing the whiteness of the highlights, because AFAIK the human visual system adjusts its perception of a scene to make the brightest point fully saturated regardless of the contrast of the scene. And when all three RGB channels are fully saturated we get white. In short, the image should always have at least one pixel which is white (unless there is a colour cast, in which case that pixel should just be fully saturated with that colour). I remember we recently failed a picture of a cloud because the blacks were too deep, but I think that such an image should always have at least one pixel which is pure white; #FFFFFF (in other words R=256, G=256, B=256). What do you think of this? Also this image is absolutely huge; are you pixel peeping when you say it's too noisy? -- Thennicke (talk) 05:12, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
  • There's definitely an argument for "expose to the right" (while using base ISO) in order to retain as much information in the image file as possible, though this is done with the knowledge that one will pull the exposure back down again in post. If you are not using the full 0..255 range of a JPG, then whether "white" is 255 or 240 is neither here nor there on a mathematical information-retention level. Technically, the sRGB standard does specify luminance conditions for a technician in a TV/Film/Artist studio to sit there with their monitor at a certain brightness, with shades around the monitor, with ambient light at a certain level, and then to adjust the scene to look right -- that's how our TV programs aren't all mid-grey. The original image does actually use the full 0..255 but not in all three colours simultaneously. The red channel goes from 0..255, the green channel goes to 230 and blue to 225. On each colour, the bulk of the histogram only reaches 200. You can see then that since red is already utilising the full range, one can't simply raise the numbers on all three channels to reach your desired 255/255/255. Lightroom's exposure adjustment is not a simple "brightness" control, though, so it is possible to shift that histogram bulk higher up without blowing the highlights much more. Still, that sort of adjustment is an artistic choice rather than some scientific improvement. The books I have (e.g. The Digital Negative) suggest adjusting the exposure in Lightroom so your mid tones look about right to you, but that's also advice for a typical scene, and not always applicable to all kinds of image. How bright an image ultimately renders is dependent on this JPG value but also the viewer's monitor settings and the ambient brightness in the room. So I don't think I'm concerned about the RGB values so much as the over all high-key / low-key / high-contrast / low-contrast effect. If you look at the EXIF for the original, the author made some fairly big adjustments already. Vibrance +17. Several hue/saturation/luminance adjustments to various colours. Exposure +.25. Contrast +47. Highlights -8. Shadows +41. Whites +44. Blacks -35. Clarity +35. Sharpness +56 (which has added noise). So he's already boosted the contrast, globally, and with white/black adjustment and locally with clarity, all at very significant levels.
  • On your second point, yes I suppose if I downsize to 6MP then I can no longer see the added noise. And even at 13.5MP (4500x3000) the noise is not really apparent. The extreme sharpening (+56, no masking or other adjustment I can see) gives an illusion of tree leaf detail in the downsized image, but one can see in the 100% that soft foggy areas are full of "detail" that simply shouldn't be there. I don't know. If the noise was a consequence of lighting conditions requiring high iso, then I'd be more forgiving. As it is, it seems to be a bit of "fakery" to make the image sharper than it really is. I'd like to see what the original soft foggy scene looked like. So while the noise disappears on downsizing to perfectly usable levels, the fake sharpness is retained. I can't make up my mind on whether that's reasonable.
  • Wrt your adjustment. I think that is more extreme than removing a dust spot or two. Personally I'd be upset if someone did that to one of my images without creating a new alternative file and making the adjustment clear in the "Author" section of the image description. I know it is in the upload log, but that's pretty obscure. Clearly the photographer didn't just create an out-of-camera JPG, but took care to post process the image to their taste (whether we agree or not) which includes the contrast levels, the brightness and the amount of noise/sharpening they wanted for effect. What we have here isn't any longer John Towner's image. I think, for FP "finest", I'd like if we respected the creator's vision and offered our own variants with more separation than just a file version that hides the original from direct use. -- Colin (talk) 09:14, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
  • @Colin: Thanks for such a complete response. I didn't check the histogram of the original image, so I didn't realise that the full gamut was actually being used. I agree with your reasoning and have reverted to the original image. Also how did you get that exif info? exiftool? I didn't know you could retrieve such information; that's handy to know. -- Thennicke (talk) 00:13, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support the original version. Decided to forgive the over-sharpening grain, as it isn't really apparent even at 13.5MP downsized. I use Jeffrey Friedl's Image Metadata Viewer. You used to be able to link to the results page, but he had to change ISP and the bandwidth restrictions mean it's behind a captcha test. This depends on the user exporting from Photoshop or Lightroom and not removing the metadata from the EXIF when they do. And if an image has been through many tools, then the EXIF can become confused or incomplete. I don't think other tools export as much detail as the Adobe ones. -- Colin (talk) 09:08, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Technicality doesnt match photography which is a kind of art.Paolobon140 (talk) 08:38, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment To cart, Peulle, Daniel Case, Sanjay Acharya, I have some difficulties to understand your opposition based only on such minor flaws as CA (not even mentioned in FP guidelines). Featured Pictures doesn't have to be Super-QI. It's normal that we have some expectations of quality here but the first one there should be on the artistic value not on the technical. If you can't appreciate such images without pointing out the technical imperfections, I guess you suffer a lot when you visit photo exhibitions & festivals. For me, as for a few I hope, the beauty and the magic of photography doesn't reside in absolute perfection. --Selbymay (talk) 09:30, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Selbymay, these "Should we accept CA in FPs"-discussions flare up in nominations and on the FPC talk page from time to time, leaving none the wiser (example). Removing CA and other minor technical imperfections are not written in the image guidelines or rules of FP quality criteria but such corrections have been general practice / unwritten rule as long as I have been active here on Commons. The "no-CA-rule" was in fact the first rule I learned here. The written rules/guidelines have not been altered in a long time and does therefore not include many of the things that are quite easy to correct with programs and all these days. I guess the reasoning goes that if it's easy to fix something, why shouldn't we fix it so that FPs are as good as they can possibly get. We DO appreciate the artistic value in images and are not pained when looking at exhibitions. I have an equal difficulty in understanding why you are so opposed to make minor easy improvements in a photo to make it as good as possible, like any artist putting the finishing touches on a work of art before an exhibition. If you want to make an effort to change how photos are to be judged here you are very welcome to start a discussion about it on the FPC talk page. Who knows, maybe we will reach a conclusion this time... --cart-Talk 11:25, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Thanks. The Photographer. Wrt cropping, there isn't enough of the brown field above the tree shadow for me to crop it to be just field. The tree branches may be compositionally a little messy but they help indicate the photographer is up the tree. Of course one can find an educational use: shadows, Autumn colours, low sun, childhood fun climbing a tree-ladder, etc, etc. Perhaps not as educationally useful as a photo of Barack Obama ;-). -- Colin (talk) 18:44, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Understood, but now that I'm in a better mood, I not only still find the light dismal, but I think it doesn't contrast sufficiently with the church, gravestones, etc. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:19, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
  • This light would be fine if it were processed to use the full range of luminosity values - the picture simply isn't bright enough -- Thennicke (talk) 03:22, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support, although taking Thennicke's suggestion wouldn't hurt. Daniel Case (talk) 20:50, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Weak support Quite depressing atmosphere, however it is balanced enough. Warmer light might make it too ordinary, not able to climb above QI level. -- Pofka (talk) 16:03, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Ikan...I tried brightening my screen before I realized it was the image. Can it not be fixed with a level adjustment? Atsme 📞 19:33, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
