SHORT DESCRIPTION
✓ Done There was a slight pincushion distortion which is now corrected. For the verticals: I used the cables of the lamps and I was assuming homogenous gravity in the church. For the resolution: As usual I uploaded the full resolution of my camera. More is not available and I think, that ISO 125 is good enough for the situation. I shot on available light and refused the offer of Sister Dorothea to switch on the lights. There are some coloured lights visible where I have to mention, that it is not a chromatic aberration but the filtered light of the stained glass. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 13:04, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Let me take the opportunity to add some information: The church is part of the augustinian monastery in Essen. The stained glass windows show artwork of Johan Thorn Prikker which is considered to be one of the most important glass artists of 20th century. Influenced by impressionism, he pushed stained glass art from figural to ornamental. The windows in the monastery are his last work. From him is the word "Wie herrlich muss es sein, mit der Sonne selbst malen zu können" (How splendid it must be, to paint with the sun herself). Prikker had a deadly desease and it is believed, that the windows, made partly under horrible pains, depict "the antagonism of powers, the path from darkness and death to light and ressurection. The effects of the light is capturing the whole room into this movement; symbol of the big, eternal community of all released people in god." --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 04:41, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Yes, the colors are "real" (by that I mean that these are the colors that the camera captured), in post-production I only changed white balance and exposure controls, I did not use the individual color bars. I sharpened it a bit, but it is still an ISO 800 picture on a low-end DSLR, I wished I had a tripod then, but my purpose of being there was joining the fun, not taking pictures :) --Xicotencatl (talk) 17:27, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

    • @Laitche: Yes, there are so many FPs on the internet. The problem is: they are not uploaded at the Commons for several reasons (copyright, etc...). About this picture: I think it has wow: composition (the textures of the rocks, the reflection in the water, light) and place (a unusual FPC place). 😄 ArionEstar 😜 (talk) 13:22, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
      • I don't think so, it's a normal shot with f/3.5 and probably PL filter for me, and too small for this type of foto in 2015, the place is no matter in other words no wow, sorry. --Laitche (talk) 13:32, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • @Livioandronico2013: and @Pofka:, it is blurred but on purpose, ans is only a result of long exposure (0.6 sec, check exif). The rocks are sharp (not razor sharp though). It's a common practice to add sense of movement in a picture, or to create one of those surreal photos with a "creamy" sea. Livio, if you don't like it, it's fine (I'm not very found of the composition), but you can't oppose based on blurriness alone. That would be missing the point. - Benh (talk) 21:59, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
    • These unnatural tides simply doesn't work for me. Maybe every person assess such things differently. Though, I like everything else about this photo as it looks quite unique, so... Symbol support vote.svg Weak support -- Pofka (talk) 22:06, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • The point is that is blurred (purpose or not) --LivioAndronico (talk) 22:08, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Then maybe abstaining from voting or just saying you don't like it would be better. Your vote sounds like it's a technical issue, but it's not. Pretty much as if you oppose a Monet because it's a bit blurry... - Benh (talk) 22:18, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

I've shotten several different focus shot but every shot was different position by wind, so I think focus stacking is difficult for this kind of subject. If I had a chance I would try that :) --Laitche (talk) 09:38, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I know that. But that's why Feautered class is someway above ordinary shot, to bring some more. In this case, portion in focus is way to small to represent this flower. I am sure it can be done much better. Positioning can be solved with underlaying layers, go to stacking, select all layers, auto-align first, then do auto-blend. This can solve some, but often manual blending is necessary. --Mile (talk) 09:51, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Added a note for horizon. I can't find the location on google maps if I search "Kos from Dikeos mountains". Would be nice to have the geolocation? EXIF says 1pm, so I can only guess it's close to midday without the geo location data. But the shadows under the trees on the right make me pretty confident with my assumption. - Benh (talk) 22:06, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Just curious, why is the quality only so-so? It's a very expensive 36 megapixel camera and lens on a tripod. To my eyes it looks very sharp without noise. The only technical defect I see is that the trees, swaying in the wind, get a bit blurred -- a trade off between car trails and noiseless ISO 100 versus sharp trees. And actually I did some post processing (it's an HDR photo from three exposures so that the roofs of the buildings aren't totally black and so that the lights aren't blown out), but I'm glad people don't notice it. Thanks! dllu (t,c) 21:59, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

      • I guessed grasses are one of elements but in this case light green (mid) ground is too little in this composition. If there are a bit more ground (midground), I would agree :) --Laitche (talk) 19:50, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

While this avoids the usual pitfall of shooting almost into the sun, there are still some small blown areas in the clouds, and I'm not sure that the composition delivers enough to offset that.

  • I understand the intention of this composition. The trees in one line similar to a pearl necklace and the cloudy look interesting. But the tree on the left is disturbing the composition. The photographer should try a different placement here. --Wladyslaw (talk) 05:52, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Interiors/Religious buildings
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info From the second half of the century. XIII. The interior has a nave with girders supported by arches resting on pillars. Among the most outstanding works of art are to be mentioned: Jesus and the Samaritan woman (1580), Virgil Nucci (first chapel since.); the Madonna del Soccorso, the unknown of the end of the century. XV (5th chapel since.); Our Lady of Grace, fresco by Ottaviano Nelli (3rd chapel d.); Baptism of St. Augustine (1594), by Felice Damiani (fourth chapel d.). Very interesting frescoes in the apse and the triumphal arch, executed by Nelli and his workshop. The triumphal arch is represented the Last Judgment, made perhaps with the help of Jacopo Salimbeni from San Severino. In the apse are illustrated stories from the life of St. Augustine. These paintings, dated 1420, is one of the main examples of late Gothic painting of Gubbio. All by LivioAndronico (talk) 09:43, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral (but thinking about opposing) It is big but so blurred that downscaling it won't remove any information at all. This should have the side effect of preventing some browsers from crashing when opening it. Also wonder where the grid pattern comes from. - Benh (talk) 19:33, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
    • I think the the grid pattern comes from the support texture. I wonder if it was paper, or textile? Please note that the original is quite big (244 x 88 cm). Regards, Yann (talk) 20:26, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

    • @Benh, Julian Herzog: I downscaled it, is it suitable for you? ;o) The original is still available in the upload history. Yann (talk) 21:14, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
      • Yes, thank you. Now I can reasonably judge it and see, for example, that it has about 3-4 Megapixels of actual resolution. I think 53 Megapixels should be enough to store that data. — Julian H. 21:26, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
      • Sorry but I still have doubts about the result. It's still blurry, and not sure it renders as good as the original if printed at the same size (not that it's necessary). Don't think the banding is due to the support. It's colored, so I assume it's some sort of noise which came with the capture process. Maybe the original is soft like that ? - Benh (talk) 17:43, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

@Kadellar:Well, it's perhaps a question of taste. The costumes, although not completely visible, are rather pretty, I think. But what I like best about this picture - and what adds wow for me - are the facial expressions of the dancers, which span a broad spectrum of emotions - from melancholy, through bewilderment and amusement, to mild scepticism. I may be wrong of course, but I think it's not really the most common and boring juxtaposition. It's certainly amusing to me. As said, possibly a question of taste.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Lothar Spurzem we all have different approach to "decoding" images. Some see colors better, some read volumes easier... I admit a panorama may make it hard to read volume, but I think "bended lines" are a too easy targets. Many photos with straight lines give "no real impression" either because projecting volumes on 2D comes with tradeoffs, and keeping lines straight often mean proportions are lost. And many photos might gives "no real impression" because you don't see colors as intended or because of bad processing. As for me, I think one can easily tell there are two alleys which are perpendicular to each other. But I know the place of course... Anyhow, I guess you mostly mean that you don't like my compositional choices (which is fine, but saddens me). - Benh (talk) 05:09, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Not sure how to read this. But (un)fortunately, this passage is not so busy to start with. So it's both a bit sad, and not an achievement (depending on what you meant). - Benh (talk) 05:09, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • The image as it is stands for itself, not needing anything really. However, the same picture with people can be interesting. It is a public space, but with no public, and this in itself is different, almost like a movie set. Anyway, I wonder about the demographics... --Tomascastelazo (talk) 05:17, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • I have to say that I really like this picture, it has Wabi Sabi. I like the details like the pipes, the ceiling glass, the damaged floor, the books and cards and art. It is nice indeed. I really do not like to compare, but here this to me is so Norman Rockwell sans the people. And I love Norman Rockwell. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 05:26, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Thank you Tomas. I'm not surprised by your comment, and if I may, this is how I "identified" you. You focus more on people and what makes things live or evolve, when I'm more into static stuffs (making references to wabi sabi or Norman Rockwell says a lot. Not that I knew them, but Wikipedia helps ;) ). I agree that a picture with people would give more life to it, be more faithful and best represent the atmosphere. But I'm just not good at it, and made a few failed attempts here. I've also come to be careful when photographing people : it may hurt them that I spead their image all over the net (have had some debate here, and many don't agree with me). This aside, this picture is HDR. It's always tricky to blend exposures when people are in the way, so I'd rather have less of them to begin with. - Benh (talk) 06:50, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

  • No projection, even the rectilinear you probably think as a "more normal than others" projection, will show it to you as a circle (unless the circle is in a plan perpendicular to the view direction). You can not like it (I'm used to that), but it's not wrong in itself. - Benh (talk) 21:14, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
  • And if I may... The bassin (which is a "perfect" circle too) doesn't show as circle here either dear Jebulon ;) - Benh (talk) 21:32, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Ne te fais pas plus bête que tu l'es, cher Benh ;). Tu comprends très bien ce que je veux dire. Je suis d'accord avec toi, mais tu sais que je n'apprécie pas ce genre de "projection", que je trouve trop artificielle par rapport à ce que voit mon œil. Tu nous proposes une vision déformée par ta lentille, et j'aime pô. Et non, contrairement à ce que tu dis à Lothar Spurzem, avec cette projection il n'est pas évident que les deux allées soient perpendiculaires, mê si moi aussi je connais les lieux. Ton choix n'est pas faux en soi (ai-je dit ça ?), il ne correspond pas à mes canons esthétiques et ce n'est pas nouveau... Quant à ton contre-exemple, tu t'es donné bien du mal pour retrouver quelque argument que, quant à moi, je juge bien peu convaincant, voire carrément capillotracté. Tu es souvent la voix discordante ici, et c'est très bien ainsi (sauf si ça devient systématique et s'apparente à une "posture"...). Permets que j'apporte ici ma modeste contradiction, qui permettra d'ailleurs à ton image, Ô paradoxe, de rester plus longtemps sur cette page !!!--Jebulon (talk) 08:27, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Je cherche à montrer l'absurdité d'un vote contre basé sur une "idéologie" finalement. Tu ne peux pas lancer de telles affirmations (ça n'est pas un cercle...) d'une telle manière sur la place publique. Déjà parce que c'est faux, et parce que beaucoup prennent ça pour argent comptant et ne se posent pas plus de questions que ça. Ça marche en politique, ça marche ici. Et je ne dis pas à Lothar que c'est évident ; je dis que ça l'est plus pour certains que pour d'autres. Il y a une forte nuance. Moi je suis bon avec les volumes, et ai été éduqué assez jeune avec des photos projetées comme ça : ça ne me gêne pas et mon cerveau fait le travail inverse rapidement. Je suis sûr de ne pas être seul dans ce cas. Tu peux dire explicitement que tu n'aimes pas, mais là, ton vote est formulé comme si le cercle qui n'en est plus était une vérité. C'est exactement la même chose sur ta photo (si!). Juste que tu sais faire la projection inverse sur ce type d'image. Et encore dès fois on se gourre, les architectes faisant souvent usage de techniques trompe-l'oeil. Tu voterais contre un planisphère? Tu réalises que l’Antarctique ou le Groenland ne sont pas aussi grands que ce qui est représenté sur la plupart des planisphères? Pourtant c'est un outil scientifique... Ça choque moins car on y est tellement habitué qu'on ne se pose plus la question, mais c'est pourtant grossier. Quant à ma voix discordante... si c'est le cas, c'est juste que la ligne éditoriale retenue après votes ne correspond pas souvent à mes goûts et convictions. Mais je ne suis pas discordant pour le plaisir ; à priori je suis constant dans mes propos (sauf évolutions dues à l'âge, je me fais vieux). Ouf. Note tout de même que j'ai une ligne directrice : c'est que la photo ait qq chose d'un minimum exceptionnel, dans le sens où ça n'est pas le type de photo facile à prendre. Sinon je reste ouvert à tout et essaie de ne pas voter contre les images dont le sujet ne m'intéresse pas, sauf erreur flagrante. - Benh (talk) 09:10, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Je crois que l'idéologue, là, c'est toi, désolé. Pas de "projection" ici, juste le résultat d'une lentille déformante. Et j'avais pensé à l'argument du planisphère de Mercator évidemment, mais pour en tirer la conclusion exactement inverse de la tienne. Tu as le droit d'être discordant à ton gré. Moi aussi. Et vive la Cité Idéale d'Urbino !--Jebulon (talk) 23:12, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Bon on rentre dans le point godwin... et on pourrait continuer longtemps avec les "non c'est toi"... Et malheureusement si, il y a "projection" (ou alors tu as raté qq chose, désolé). Tes lentilles ne font que ça, les logiciels type Hugin aussi. Je continue cette conversation en privé. On a assez pollué ici. - Benh (talk) 08:55, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • This is a third attempt... and I don't think we could. If I take it a bit earlier, the bottom part of the tower is in the shade (because of surrounding buildings). If I take it at later time, shadows have grown too much horizontaly. This is north side of the tower, leaving a very short window to get it right. Now to say all about it, the rightmost building should have been lit by the sun on top, but I found it distracting, so I used a shot taken dozens of minutes before to stitch, so everything but the tower is in the shade. Not quite faithful to reality, but more beautiful in my opinion. - Benh (talk) 06:54, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Fair enough. Short of pulling a Mr. Burns-esque act of villainy, I don't see a way of controlling the lighting here. Striking the "weak". — Chris Woodrich (talk) 09:49, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
  • What about shooting the scene in June? Don't want to be a smart-ass here, but 8 o'clock in April is imo not really the best time to get optimal light on a north facade. --DXR (talk) 14:43, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Smart ;) true. I probably wouldn't have waited until June had I realised then (I don't plan this far). I could do it again now, checked that July is still good enough, but my backlog of photos to process or move to wiki has quite swelled up lately... I may go there and just see how the lighting renders (maybe the right building come out of the shade). But I personally like the lighting enough that way. I guess I'll just wait next year to actually take the photo again. - Benh (talk) 14:58, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • And leaves of the tree might be an annoyance. - Benh (talk) 15:01, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Yeah, I didn't mean to say "Go out and do it better", but rather react to Crisco's comment ;-). I'd rather have you create great new stuff like this than spend too much time for that tower. --DXR (talk) 15:37, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Not a very inspiring shot, but I think lighting won't get (edit after discussion above) much better than this, and will fulfill its encyclopedic purposes well. - Benh (talk) 06:55, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm not Crisco, but guess "you takin' to me" instead ;) Not too sure how it's unnatural, but I used a polariser filter to darken the sky. It was even darker than that and I had to brighten it actually. I don't see CA, and they don't come from overprocessing so I guess you mean "halo" you get from oversharpening. I do sharpen so the fine details stand out more, but feel it's not pushed too far. I'll listen to other points of view. - Benh (talk) 04:48, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Post amended. Daniel Case (talk) 05:08, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Concernant les CAs je suppose que Daniel parle des traces violettes sur la balustrade en haut de l'immeuble de droite. Les ombres semblent avoir été très éclaircies, ce qui doit affecter dans une certaine mesure le contraste et donc le rendu des couleurs. Je n'ai pour ma part rien décidé concernant mon vote. Really sorry I'm a bit too tired after my day job to try to speak in English. -- Christian Ferrer 20:39, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
  • J'ai regardé de nouveau et je pense qu'il parle des halos autour des batiments. Il faut vraiment regarder de près la miniature pour le voir. C'est un phénomène qui vient du fait que j'ai fusionné trois expositions. C'est ce qui me permet d'avoir les bâtiments sur le côté relativement clairs (sans ça ils seraient vraiment sombres). Je ne sais pas si je dois m'entêter à essayer de voir ça (je dois déjà revoir mon image de la cathédrale de Condom). Si les critiques sont unanimes, je le ferai. Pour le vote, tu n'as pas à te justifier, je suis là pour lire des avis francs :) - Benh (talk) 06:40, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Lack of color vibrancy. -- Christian Ferrer 14:38, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Not happy about how you brightened the parts of the sky towards the left and right where the dark buildings are, not happy about the bottom crop. But man, that light just works perfectly with this architecture. — Julian H. 20:11, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Yes I noticed that after Daniel Case mentioned it as "CA". Not happy with it either... I spent a lot of time on that picture... so I'm a bit annoyed ;). It's due to exposures blending, and not an effect of me brightening the sky (which was much darker because of the polariser). Added to my backlog for fix. - Benh (talk) 21:19, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
