注意調校你的熒光屏[edit]

光暗度[edit]

Shadowtest.jpg

在討論影象的光暗度的時候,投票者有必要知道他們的螢幕顯示有否被適當地調整。不同的螢幕顯示,它們顯示陰影細節的能力亦大有不同。旁邊為一幅畫了四個暗灰色的圓圈的圖片。如果您能辨明其中三個(甚至四個)圈子,那表示你的的螢幕可以正確地顯示陰影細節。如果你只能夠看到三個以下的圈子,你可能需要調整你的螢幕以及/或者電腦顯示設定。一些顯示裝置可能無法被調整至觀察陰影細節的最理想度數,故此請在投票的時候考慮這點。如果可行的話,也可以考慮把它打印出來。

色彩度[edit]

Colortest.png

在伽瑪調整的螢幕顯示上從幾尺之外觀看右圖,圖中四個不同顏色的圈子會自然混入背景之中。如果他們完全跟背景混合,你則須要調校你的伽瑪設定(在電腦的輸出設定上,而不在於螢幕顯示),直到它們能彼此融合。調校的過程也許會非常困難,然而輕微的偏差並不是致命傷。未能更正的個人電腦顯示通常會顯示出比背景深色的圈子。請注意,在液晶顯示(無論膝上電腦或者平面螢幕)上觀看圖片,你的觀看角度有很大可能影響螢幕上的影象質素。如有需要,請點選影象以獲得更多技術資訊。

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not really liking the strong pattern noise, which has been emphasised by the processing. The hand is blurred and the aspect-ratio/crop just isn't working for me. 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. Everything that makes capturing a live performance worthwhile seems to be missing. -- Colin (talk) 15:16, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support It is nearly impossible to get a ski jumper 100% sharp while panning, but this is the best I could get. He would be sharp enough for the Newspapers at lower resolution and even Spiegel Online had a way less sharp panned ski jumper in their articles about the Olympic Games currently running in Korea so maybe this is wow enough to cover the missing sharpness. I'll give it a try. :) --Granada (talk) 09:15, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

  • There is only one other FP of this species - it is a different subspecies - and it shows a different profile of one of the world's most beautiful birds. I'm surprised by your comment as you yourself have two FPs of an identical view Example 1 and Example 2. Never mind your two FPs of the same fuscia species Example 3 and Example 4. I realise also that you find that your sawing machine justifies 3 FPs! Do explain your reasoning please. Charles (talk) 22:23, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 06:57, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
    • Answer: your comparison with my photo is not entirely up. Those pictures differ from each other. But of the kingfisher we have at least 5, of which 1 is with a fish in the mouth. 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!

  • It is not necessary to have the whole photograph sharp. A sharp board would be disturbing. The composition is to have only the first rack sharp. --XRay talk 04:50, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • More precisely, this blurred board with unreadable text spoils the composition. Eye-catching, this element occupies the main place on the left side of the image, and thus seems to be intentionally there, whereas it's just nothing. Not interesting, not legible, not in focus. Just disturbing, in my opinion -- Basile Morin (talk) 05:21, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I could see how this might have seemed like it could work, but the background is too distracting. If a way could be found to make it work as just the bike rack, perhaps there is an FP. Daniel Case (talk) 04:33, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Regretful oppose A really good portrait does not have to be someone facing the camera (there are plenty of profiles and half-profiles in Commons:Featured pictures/People), but unfortunately the side of the glasses ends up right over his eye and that is disturbing the photo. Otherwise it is really good and I like the space in the photo since it gives the man a chance to breathe. I'm also intrigued by seeing how the glasses are tucked into the folds of the turban. I haven't seen many people wearing such headdresses and I didn't realize that's how they work with glasses. --cart-Talk 10:19, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

the "strange glow" is called smoke and comes typically from chimneys --Wladyslaw (talk) 08:31, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Could be. It has a strange straight edge cut out of the right-hand-side, so it looked more like the weird glow one can get sometimes from stitching frames. But perhaps the straight edge is a shadow from the lights and building combined. -- Colin (talk) 08:43, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Well the technical answer is simple; the photographer didn't press the button until the vehicle was above he third bridge foundation. Since the bus/whatever had some speed, it didn't leave a shadow or anything at the point where the exposure began. There are light traces from a car that was behind the bus. I think that timing is rather splendid, since it leaves the birch grove and the ice on the right undisturbed by light streaks. --cart-Talk 15:28, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

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.

  • 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 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)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is a good documentary photo and I like the fact that you can see an adult watching over him in the background, but like Ikan said, the light is dull and also I'm not a fan of top-down angle when photographing children. Taking the photo at his level would have been better. Sorry. --cart-Talk 09:58, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
  • The above comments are fair. From the distance I was to take this picture (and this is a crop), it was difficult to place my camera lower to respect the perspectives of the building. I think the dull light is more visible on the top and on the right of the image. Thus, I try the alternative version below taken from a lower and closer viewpoint. Despite the new 16:9 format, this image is larger in size (24,2 MPix vs 19,3 Mpix). The adult behind has disappeared but the boy is smiling -- Basile Morin (talk) 11:26, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- I like that the whole shop is on display (that's encyclopedic), a version with a smiler would be better. . --BeckenhamBear (talk) 10:19, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Very clean lines, but I would crop the right side further in - probably just a bit to the right of the pylon, but I think you could obviate complaints about it by cropping to its left, and that'll still look good and IMO better than the current crop. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:16, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
    Ikan: I played around with the crop but I came to the conclusion that it's ok like this. Cropping the right side would break the golden ratio and the castle would be almost centered. Poco2 18:51, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
  • It wouldn't look almost centered (not that I think there's any inherent problem with that) because of the slope on the left. I will remain Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral, I think, because there's a certain austere character to the photo as it is, but I haven't changed my mind that a good crop would improve the composition quite substantially. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:28, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I like how the door frame (black rubber and metal edge) "naturally" frames the broken window view, I would much rather keep it that way so I will hold off on cropping unless the consensus is that it's required for FP. --Trougnouf (talk) 12:17, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Very weak oppose for now. It's a new and fresh, interesting motif but the image is dark and dull, the post-processing could be better with some more light and contrast since it is an artistic photo rather than a documentary one. --cart-Talk 08:43, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose for now, but I may support the cropped version without that black frame. Sorry I don't see the use of these partial borders. I just don't see what they bring to the image, what's the extra value of this half frame. We can't guess the material, it looks more like a disturbing element on both sides. Maybe if it was integral all around, at the limit, well, but cut like that, it kills the texture and ruins the composition -- Basile Morin (talk) 14:39, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
