@Alchemist-hp: Tolles Kontra-Argument! Aber an dem Autochen gibt's nun mal nicht viel zu sehen; mehr allerdings als an einem voll verkleideten Sportwagen. Wenn Du genau hinschaust, erkennst Du drei von vier Rädern, die sich drehen, die Vorderradaufhängung und mit der Lenkung, die Lenksäule und das Lenkrad, den Tank und den Kühler hinter dem Fahrer, die Scheinwerfer und die Abdeckplane statt einer Frontverkleidung aus Metall. – Wie ich sehe, läuft es aber wohl darauf hinaus, dass ich die Bewerbung zurückziehe. -- Spurzem (talk) 15:03, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Sorry, poor DoF imo and I can't see an artistic intention--Lmbuga (talk) 20:02, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
  • I tried several DoF and this is actually the one that came out best. The different shoots on the juniper were at so many levels, no way of getting all of them sharp (complete focus stacking is not an option on a cliff with a handheld camera). At f/11 many were sharp, but so was also the older parts of the branches and the picture just looked messy, the background also became way to sharp with that. As for the artistic side, the little shoots looked like small bright stars against the darker green/brown and I tried to catch a "constellation" of them, no deeper meaning than that. It came out better that I hoped for since I normally don't shoot plants and I can honestly say that wouldn't had managed even this if I hadn't been looking at so many of Famberhorst's and Iifar's pictures lately. The honor for any good comments for this pic should fall to them, any blame or bad critique is all on me. :) --w.carter-Talk 21:28, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Something different today, from the french national online library. Here we have a (restored by me) manuscript illumination featuring the coats of arms of dowager queen Catherine de'Medici, widow of king Henry II of France. This was included ca.1560CE in a ca.1500 CE illuminated prayer book manuscript called Petites Heures d'Anne de Bretagne. One can see that they are CoA of a widow due to the Ordre de la Cordelière around the escutcheon. This chivalric order was created after the death of her husband king Louis XII of France by queen Anne of Brittany, for widow noble women. You have at left (dextre in french heraldry) the CoA of kings of France, and at right (senestre, yes, it is inversed) the CoA of Catherine, showing her descent (Boulogne, Medici, Tour d'Auvergne). During her life, she was Queen Consort, and a very powerful Queen Mother of the three last kings ( brothers Francis II of France, Charles IX of France and Henry III of France) of the House of Valois of the Capetian dynasty. Her death marks the end of the french Renaissance. The original version of this image is available as first upload for comparison, as I usually do.-- Jebulon (talk) 15:25, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support As far as I can see, this is an excellent rendition of an old illumination. Most likely made on handmade paper (no straight sides, vellum usually have cut sides) in an age when rulers and set-squares were optional. Colors are consistent with those of the era and so is the gilding. Granted, it's been some years since I studied such manuscripts at the British Museum, but from what I recall this seems ok.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment for sure: this is a nice point for a pano. But here he have several problems: (1) The depth of the red color is to big. (2) The left part of the image with the church is strongly unsharp. (3) The whole image is gloomy and some parts (especially the shadow areas) are very dark. (4) IMO the reflections are not that nice to show them in this way. The layout of this motive is not very coherent in my eyes. --Wladyslaw (talk) 11:16, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

And it was not "destructive" was we do not have any lost of information. Next time, ponder your words, or at least bring truths... Btw, your cuts are not clear, and the reason is simple, you changed the background colour, but do not took into consideration the invasion that black creates, now we have harsh white knurled lines, and you also do not removed the invasion of magenta provoked by the model itself.

Hi Adam, thanks for your recomendation, however, the pole is a rusty suit that has nothing to do with the main subject and black blackgrounds are used in most scientific anatomy books to enhance the main subject. --The Photographer (talk) 05:17, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
This isn't just a diagram; it's a model. It loses a lot of value if parts of the model are removed. Besides the pole, the various screws and latches were also removed. But not the base. It's an awkward hybrid; you're basically trying to turn a photo of a 3D object into an SVG diagram. Adam Cuerden (talk) 22:38, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is a beautiful picture that brings back fond memories for me and certainly a QI or VI, but that modern tram behind the tram spoils the image for me and an FP should be perfect. (not suggesting it could be cloned out this time) This museum tram runs so often that it would be no problem to wait for one with no modern vehicles around it. The architecture around this stop is from the 19th century so the perfect setting for the tram otherwise. Also you got the geo tag wrong, it has this as on the bridge, but the stop and this pic is on Strandvägen at 59.331748, 18.092906 just before the bridge even if the stop is named after the bridge. Sorry, but thank you for showing it. :) w.carter-Talk 17:05, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral See several discussions below. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It really is beautiful and perfect, but IMO too beautiful and perfect, it doesn't look real, more like some computer animation from a film or a game with a huge budget and very good animators. Truly sorry. w.carter-Talk 17:13, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • @W.carter: Sorry, but I really don't understand why you opposed. Please, explain me. 😄 ArionEstar 😜 (talk) 13:54, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
  • @ArionEstar: I explained it below to Ikan, is that enough or should I do this once again here? w.carter-Talk 13:58, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
  • @ArionEstar: Now this is turning into a philosophical discussion, by "too perfect" here I meant that it was so flawless that it looked unreal. Kreuz said it better in his explanation when he called it overprocessed and oversaturated. That was the "photography-speak" I was looking for. I am not wowed by this picture, it has perspective but it does not convey a sense of depth, the light is flat, the arches nearest the camera are far too distorted, the stained glass window at the end looks too bright. I don't find this image as stunning as the rest of his church pictures. But I will probably be explaining this "not-wowed" for the rest of my life if I keep up opposing this, so I move to neutral instead. I've learned my lesson. w.carter-Talk 14:21, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
  • @ArionEstar: Please don't change the words in your question after I have answered it. It means something different now and my answer does not match it. w.carter-Talk 10:21, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Don't worry about expressing your opinion... You might be right or you might be wrong, but you're entitled to a subjective opinion. You may have a point about the flat lighting anyway. It's not actually flat (there is plenty of contrast), but there was a huge range of luminosity in the scene and the only way to 'squeeze' it into a normal low dynamic range image is to compress it and sometimes that makes it appear flat even when it's not. As I said below, I think reshooting it when the lighting was more balanced would help, but for now, this image is what it is. :-) Diliff (talk) 11:17, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support perfect as always. --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 18:46, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - It certainly looks real to me. W.carter, I have to shake my head in disbelief at the idea of opposing a photo because it's "too perfect". Because really great computer animators can produce a fine simulacrum of reality now, we're going to penalize the very greatest photographers for their level of perfection? I think that's not only absurd but really objectionable, and a totally untenable basis for opposing a feature. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:40, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • @Ikan Kekek: We deal very much in subjectivity when casting our votes on these candidates, and describing why you don't think something that ought to be ok, is not, that's very difficult. That was the nearest I could come to explaining why the image did not appeal to me. Perhaps I should have used a language like 'flat light', 'too bright stained glass windows', 'arches nearest the camera looking distorted', 'even though it has perspective, it does not convey a sense of depth'. A perfect rendition of something is not necessarily a good photo. Would such a description be more satisfying? We all have our own way of describing why we like or don't like a photo. You often talk about "moving your eyes around the photo", an expression I have never understood, but I respect that as your way of describing how you take in a picture. Mine is often by using simile or metaphore. w.carter-Talk 20:02, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Those specifics make sense to me. In terms of moving one's eyes around the picture frame, see if you can find information about the linear arabesque. My father, a painter, cited a specific treatise, but I don't remember its name at present. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:39, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Ok, I'll see if I can look that up somewhere. And I'll use a more direct language in the future. We don't want things to get 'Lost in translation'. w.carter-Talk 07:36, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

  • That, I can totally agree with! :) But even the greatest masters sometimes create works that does not appeal to everyone. I don't like all Rembrandts just because they have his signature either. w.carter-Talk 21:21, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • An odd discussion indeed. I'm very surprised at being pummeled like this for having a different opinion than the rest of the community, I thought that was allowed. I'm starting to feel like a heretic in front of the inquisition for daring to not be wowed by a work of Saint Diliff The Magnificent! But if it saves me from being burned at the stake, I can change me vote to 'Neutral' so as not to hinder the speedy ascension of His work to FP. ;) --w.carter-Talk 07:31, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
  • w.carter: Ups, my last comment was way more harsh than I intended it to be. I should have added a smiley or two. I've realized that after re-reading it. I absolutely and honestly didn't want to attack you or your right to an dissenting opinion which I do - of course - respect. Therefore I'd like to apologize for my tone. --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 09:35, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
  • @W.carter: Come on, this is ridiculous and you know it. Your opinion is always very welcome. But that doesn't mean that other's aren't allowed to reply on your comments as well. This is what we call a discussion. It's quite simple: If you don't want others to reply on your comments you shouldn't post them in the first place. However, I agree with you that language is often a problem here at FPC. I'm not a native English speaker as well and I often don't really know how to express my opinion properly. Thoughtfulness is the key, I think. --Code (talk) 09:30, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Yes, yes, I know. I enjoy a good discussion as much as anyone else and I can give as good as I get. Face-wink.svg No need to apologize for anything neither you or Martin, I have a very thick skin. Now I also know that speaking metaphorically may be nice when discussing art or the taste of a good wine, but not so much when discussing photos here. I should have tagged my comment above with a ";)" to clarify that I made that one smiling. (now fixed) And to explain a bit, part of my job is to go through hundreds of almost identical photos of something each day and decide which one is the best for a cover, an ad, a brochure, etc. So I'm more used to the "in or out" system, "neutral" is new to me. w.carter-Talk 10:14, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Though I usually am a great Diliff fan this is overprocessed in my eyes. Colours oversaturated (see all red areas, and even the blue books). Impressing level of detail of course but the look at 100 percent is too unreal for me. --Kreuzschnabel 22:50, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

If anything, the stained glass was the hardest part to process and some parts are blown a little bit (even with 5 bracketed images with 2-3 stops between them!). I would like to visit again when the light isn't as harsh, I think the stained glass would look better that way. But it's still quite accurate I think. Diliff (talk) 11:12, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per others. Still seems overexposed (as pointed out by Spurzem already) with washed-out colours, this probably can’t be fixed. Composition does not strike me this way, I’d crop most of the foreground out (try a 16:9 ratio at full width) to focus on the building. But the main issue is the image quality (sharpness) which is way too poor to be featured I’m afraid – the photographer is in dire need of better gear to execute his good ideas suitably. --Kreuzschnabel 05:03, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support No, not a "Wow" but a "Yay!". The picture has a happy easy air about it that I like. The light is good and the car is acutally going somewhere, not just sitting there. The background is right for a timeless, carefree Sunday afternoon drive and is not drawing attention away from the car. Even the color of the flowers by the road matches the car. I would welcome a little crop at the bottom though since asphalt is seldom that exciting to look at. Nice shot. w.carter-Talk 12:10, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Please show me the direction that it is not allowed to present nearly the same motive once more or that it would be not allowed to feature! -- Spurzem (talk) 20:46, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
I've seen FPCs opposed here a number of times because they were too close in composition to images of the same location or subject. This image is featurable on its own, but how many cars in this identical composition would be featurable? If we feature 2, why not 5 or 10, as long as it's a different car each time? Please remember though that this is my opinion and my single vote. My supports and opposes are no big deal. Just one guy's opinion. INeverCry 20:56, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
Perhaps this composition for cars ("shells for humans") is the equivalent of gastropods with black background ("shells for snails") as a pleasing way to show the different models/species in FPs? w.carter-Talk 03:08, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, may be QI but not outstanding enough for a feature IMHO. At just 6 megapixels it shows poor detail or sharpness, and there’s visible motion blur on all the details. I’d crop half of the bottom space out as well, there’s too much below and too little above the car. --Kreuzschnabel 05:10, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I like this picture and consider it a good feature. In addition to being a quality photo, the Trabant, as the proletariat's car in East Germany, is historically important.

And you'd think that would be enough, but as a cat lover and having been owned by a cat, I know that these fine beings have high standards regarding their looks, fur must be perfect and immaculate, and an FP should also portray them in the absolutely best manner. No fuzzy hairs! ... Seriously, it's a great image and a great pose, but for an FP there should be more DoF, here it is so shallow that the face looks almost detached from the rest of the body. Very unfortunate. >^o^< w.carter-Talk 20:37, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
    To be clear, it's not a cat, it's a bobcat. Really not as common. Letartean (talk) 00:56, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
