注意,你的荧光屏可能未调校妥当![edit]

光暗度[edit]

Shadowtest.jpg

在讨论图像的光暗度的时候,投票者有必要知道他们的屏幕显示有否被适当地调整。不同的屏幕显示,它们显示阴影细节的能力亦大有不同。旁边为一幅画了四个暗灰色的圆圈的图片。如果您能辨明其中三个(甚至四个)圈子,那表示你的的屏幕可以正确地显示阴影细节。如果你只能够看到三个以下的圈子,你可能需要调整你的屏幕以及/或者电脑显示设置。一些显示设备可能无法被调整至观察阴影细节的最理想度数,故此请在投票的时候考虑这点。如果可行的话,也可以考虑把它打印出来。

色彩度[edit]

Colortest.png

在伽玛调整的屏幕显示上从几尺之外观看右图,图中四个不同颜色的圈子会自然混入背景之中。如果他们完全跟背景混合,你则须要调校你的伽玛设置(在电脑的输出设置上,而不在于屏幕显示),直到它们能彼此融合。调校的过程也许会非常困难,然而轻微的偏差并不是致命伤。未能更正的个人电脑显示通常会显示出比背景深色的圈子。请注意,在液晶显示(无论膝上电脑或者平面屏幕)上观看图片,你的观看角度有很大可能影响屏幕上的图像质素。如有需要,请点击图像以获得更多技术信息。

Look how nice Ms. Inhof's clothes are, compared to Ms. Brunati's uninteresting t-shirt. Also, see how Ms. Brunati's face is glary from excessive lighting, whereas Ms. Inhof's face is nicely naturally lit. Finally, compare the banal background in this photo with the unobtrustive bokeh in the other one. And then there's also the fact that this is just not a very flattering photo, as we see what might be a pimple to the (viewer's) right of Ms. Brunati's nose. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:58, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

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 per above. -- Colin (talk) 11:39, 20 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)

Three buffaloes heads above water in Si Phan Don
  • Yes, these water buffaloes got their name from this particular behavior. They're often cooling themselves in the water (or in the mud), when the weather is hot -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:19, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Very strong oppose These working animals have ropes inserted through their noses and we should not be celebrating this abusive (though traditional) practice. Charles (talk) 20:58, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
  • OK, that's a point. It seems that I'm too urban to see this. Charles, did you notice that you've put 'support' in your oppose? --Basotxerri (talk) 21:19, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
  • For now this vote is more a green support than a strong oppose Face-smile.svg but to answer your comment, Charles, these domestic buffaloes are not enclosed and then free to graze and move where they want. I think such practices are more respectful than to park them in a small enclosure like in other areas in the world. But these are not wild animals, contrary to what it seems ! And concerning the rope in their noses, Wikipedia says "Bulls, especially, are powerful and sometimes unpredictable animals which, if uncontrolled, can kill or severely injure a human handler". Also I don't encourage any practice just taking this picture, I was passing by this river bank, and met these animals starring at me like big sharks, that made me shoot -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:19, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
Sometimes an innocently-taken image can reveal animal cruelty. Could I suggest you have a look at these online comments on what's behind this photo: one; two
  • Charles, are you ok? You vote with the wrong symbol, you confuse wiki-link code with external link code and you don't sign your comment. I have fixed the links for you though. Hope you are taking care of yourself, --Cart (talk) 19:55, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, I'm just committed to animal welfare and I hope we all are. When I'm cross, I make more mistakes! Sorry. Charles (talk) 21:55, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Good to hear, you had me worried there for a while. The Wiki-project needs good photos of everything. Remaining neutral when judging good photos or good text in articles can sometimes be very hard when the content goes against our own feelings on the subject. Good photos are supposed to extract emotions from us and make us think. --Cart (talk) 22:07, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • You are right, but this well-composed image was taken in good faith just to be an interesting shot, which it is. A close-up of the ropes piercing the animals' heads would be very acceptable if the caption described what was being depicted. To give another example, it would not be acceptable (in my view) to nominate a pretty picture of very young children sewing colourful carpets without mentioning the abusive practice of child labour. Charles (talk) 07:22, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Well then, the solution would be to add neutral information about this part of the photo, since it is possible to extract closeups from this photo (one of the reasons why FPs are in hi-res). Let's see if I can fix that so that all parties will be satisfied. My edit can of course be removed or tweaked. --Cart (talk) 09:23, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Totally agree to mention this nose rope in the description. I also added a link to the Bubalus bubalis, which is the main subject. However, I don't think this picture is the right place to debate about the nose ring, the Wikipedia article is much more appropriate to the discussion (in favor or against), and a link to the page might be enough, I think. Then I changed the description accordingly to the vision I have about this image. Thanks for the contributions -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:29, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • That's ok, but in the new edit you instead inserted a personal comment and veiwpoint ("At this bank, starring at the camera like three sharks, or like three attentive observers, they're rather funny to look at, as if they were expecting something from their group photograph.") That should be removed since it doesn't belong in a neutral image description, please do so. Let the viewer form their own oppinion about the photo. Like if this photo was to be used in an article about nose ropes, that's not the sort of comment you'd want accompanying the picture. --Cart (talk) 12:47, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, I took the liberty to write it's funny because I'm not the only one to find so, reading the others. And concerning your idea about nose ropes, reading the Wikipedia page, there is not (yet) people against -- Basile Morin (talk) 14:07, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Just because there are at least two people finding something funny, does not mean it is so for everyone. I for one don't find this funny at all. But it's a good picture. Image descriptions should be neutral, that's how encyclopedic material works. If you don't like to have other people's values in an image text, you should not impose your values either. --Cart (talk) 14:54, 16 April 2018 (UTC)~
  • No problem, I'm fine with the description now -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:01, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Basile, it would be best to add the new descriptions in French, too, when you have the chance. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 16:21, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, slowly, slowly... First get a consensus on the text in English, then translate -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:01, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I saw once one water buffalo gone berserk... and out of control. In this case, better not to stay close... The rope in the nose is a necessary security feature for every one. Regards, Yann (talk) 03:32, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
