概要[edit]

推薦にあたって[edit]

推薦者のためのガイドライン[edit]

まずはじめに、『秀逸な画像ガイドライン』、『画像のガイドライン』をお読みください。

ここでは推薦画像の評価を受ける・する際の必要事項を要約して紹介します。

  • 解像度 - 200万ピクセル以下の写真画像は、特別な理由が無い限り却下されます。1,600 x 1,200 ピクセル(1.92メガピクセル)は200万ピクセルには届いていない事にご注意ください。
コモンズに置かれた画像は一般的なPCモニターのみで閲覧されるとは限らず、プリントアウトや高解像度モニターで表示される可能性もあります。将来的にもどのような機器が用いられるようになるかは誰にも予想出来ないので、推薦画像が可能な限り高い解像度を保っている事は重要な事なのです。
  • スキャン画像 - 公式な方針ではありませんが、Help:スキャニングページで各種様々な画像を準備するための有用なアドバイスが提供されています。
  • フォーカス - 通常、重要な被写体は全て焦点が合っていなければいけません。
  • 前景と背景 - 前景や背景に主題ではない物が写り込むと、それは“余計なもの”になり得ます。前景にある物が主題の重要な部分を隠していないか、背景にあるものが構図を損ねていないか(例:後ろの街灯が人物の頭の上から生えているように見える、等)を確認しましょう。
  • 全体品質 - 推薦される画像には高い技術品質が要求されます。
  • デジタル補正 - 見る人を欺いてはいけません。写真画像のキズ・ホコリ等を修正する、良い編集、故意に人を騙す目的でない限り、デジタル補正は一般的に歓迎されます。例を挙げると、色合い/露出補正、シャープ/ボカシ、遠近感歪み補正、トリミング(切り取り)等がこれにあたります。背景に写り込んだ余計な物を取り除く等のさらに大がかりな修正は、{{Retouched picture}}テンプレートを画像ページへ貼付け、修正した旨を記述しましょう。記述漏れや記述ミスがある等、主題を不正確に見せる編集は決して受け入れられません。
  • 価値 - 『全ての画像の中でも特に際立ち、最も価値のある画像』が我々の大きな目標です。秀逸な画像はそれぞれの分野の中でも別格でなけらばならず、故に次の点に留意して下さい。
    • たいていの夕日は美しく見えますが、そういう画像のほとんどは他の夕日画像と大差ありません。
    • 夜景は美しいですが、普通は日中に撮影された写真の方がより詳細を見せてくれます。
    • 必ずしも『美しさに価値がある』わけではありません。

技術的側面では露出『構図』『動感表現』被写界深度等を見ます。

  • 露出とはシャッタースピードと絞りとの組み合わせの事を言い、適切なトーンカーブが見せる陰影〜ハイライトが有用なディティールを描写します。これをラティチュード(露光寛容度)と言い、このラティチュードの陰影〜ハイライトの領域内において、画像を暗め、中庸、明るめに作る事が出来ますが、デジタルカメラ及びデジタル画像はこのラティチュードの範囲がフィルムに比べて狭いです。ディティールの欠損した影部分は必ずしも「悪い」わけではなく、実際にその様な効果が望ましい場合(部分)もあります。ただしディティールの欠損したハイライト部分が大きく面積を占めるのは良くありません。
  • 構図とは画像画面内での各要素の配置の事を言います。“三分割法”は構図作成には良い方法で、美術学校でも教えられています。まず、画像に水平線と垂直線をそれぞれ2本引き、画像を水平・垂直方向とも3分割します。主題を中央に配置するとたいていは画面に面白味を欠き、水平線と垂直線が交差する4つの交点の内どれか1つに主題を置いた方が良い画面になるでしょう。地平線は画面を半分に切ってしまうので、通常は地平線を中央に配置するべきではありません。上寄り、若しくは下寄りに配置させる方が良いでしょう。主たる考え方としては空間を上手に使い、躍動感・臨場感のある画面を作るという事です。
  • 動感表現 - ここでは被写体の「動き」を表現する手法を紹介します。動きのある被写体は止まって見えるか、もしくはブレて写りますが、これらはどちらの方が良いとは必ずしも言えず、どのような表現意図を持っているかによります。「動感」は主題と共に写り込んでいる他の背景等との関係で表現されます。例えばレーシングカーの撮影。車と背景とが共に止まって見えては、見る側にスピード感は伝わってきません。 なので撮影手法によって車は画面内で止まっているように写り、かつ背景をブレさせることでスピード感が表現され、このような手法を「パンニング(流し撮り)」と呼びます。一方で、背景と共に止まって撮られた高く跳躍したバスケットボール選手は、これは決定的瞬間の「不自然」なポーズになり、これも良い写真になり得るでしょう。
  • 被写界深度(DOF)とは主題の前側から後ろ側までのフォーカスエリアの事を言います。被写界深度は全ての画像で明解な意図のもと選択され、深い、または浅い被写界深度は、画像に品質を与えもし、また損なわせもします。浅い被写界深度は、主題を他の被写体から切り離し、見せたい被写体に注目を集めることが出来ます。深い被写界深度は空間を強調させる事が出来ます。広角(短焦点)レンズは深い被写界深度、逆に望遠(長焦点)レンズは浅い被写界深度が得られる傾向があります。また絞りを絞り込むと被写界深度は深く、解放すると浅い被写界深度が得られます。

グラフィック要素では形状、ボリューム、色、テクスチャー、遠近感、バランス、比率 等を見ます。

  • 形状とは主題に対する輪郭線、及び形状を言います。
  • ボリュームとは主題の立体感に対する品質を言います。立体感は横からのライティングで表現出来、反対に正面からのライティングは被写体を平坦に見せる傾向があり、不向きとされています。自然光の中でベストな光を得るには、早朝か、もしくは夕方の日の光が良いでしょう。
  • は大変重要で、強すぎる色合いは好ましくありません。
  • テクスチャーとは主題の表面材質の描写性に於ける品質を言います。表面材質は横からのライティングにより強調され、手に触れて伝わるかのような質感を与えます。
  • 遠近感とは、画像の画面内若しくは外にある消失点で繋がる放射状の直線、これに沿った形で現れる「角度」により表現されます。
  • バランスでは画像の画面内での重心が左右均衡か、若しくは片方に寄る等適切な配置が成されているかを見ます。
  • 比率では画面の大きさに対する被写体の大きさを見ます。一般的に、小さな被写体は小さく写真に表現してしまう傾向にありますが、相応しい撮影手法により小さな被写体を実寸とは逆に大きく見せる事が可能です。例えば、小さな花を大きな山よりも大きく見る事が出来ます。この手法を指して「倒置法」と呼びます。
主題の全ての要素を画像に盛込む必要はありません。多くの写真はそれぞれの個性で評価出来ます。すなわち、画像の色やテクスチャー等々により判断出来ます。
  • 『象徴性か妥当性か』 ー 『秀逸な画像』ではしばしばこのようなテーマで意見論争が起こる傾向にあります。技術的・品質的には出来の悪い写真でも極めて撮影困難な被写体を捉えた写真は、凡庸な被写体を写した品質的に良い写真よりも評価されます。もちろん撮影困難な被写体を写し、かつ品質も良い写真は極めて価値の高い写真と言えます。
画像は時に撮影者と評価者、若しくはどちらか片方の文化的な偏りが見られます。画像の意図は画像そのものの文化的背景により評価されるべきであり、評価者の文化的背景に依存してはいけません。イメージは人に語りかけ、そして慈しみ、怒り、拒絶、幸せ、悲しみ等の感情を喚起させる力を持っています。良い写真から与えられる心地よさには限りがありません。


画像のガイドラインを事前に読めば、あなたの推薦が成就する可能性を最大限に引き伸ばしてくれるでしょう。

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Also -- and this is a very minor thing that I appreciate as a birder, I know -- I love that its foot is almost highlighted amid the underside of a leaf. The orange color of a blackpoll's feet is the best way to tell this bird from a bay-breasted warbler in their nonbreeding plumage, so it's what we're always trying to see when making an identification this time of year. — Rhododendrites talk |  13:33, 22 October 2021 (UTC)[]

    • @PetarM: Thanks. Yes, they are all wild. New York City is, surprisingly, one of the best birding spots in the country. It is on the Atlantic flyway, has several kinds of habitats, and has a good position on the coast. There are also fewer options to land because there are buildings everywhere, so they all stop in the same large green areas (like this cemetery). During the spring and fall there are days when I go out and see 40-50 different species in a single park. This blackpoll is one of the migrants. I've only seen a few ever. They breed up in Canada and winter in South America, so there's a short period twice a year where we might see them flying through. If you're curious, here is a list of birds that have been seen in this cemetery (also, here is the spot in NYC with the largest number of species seen). — Rhododendrites talk |  17:31, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[]

    • I had a couple different sets of frames to play with. What worked best (and what you see here) is a set of 5 vertical frames taken a couple feet from the sidewalk, stitched and perspective adjusted in Lightroom.

  • Danke für deinen Hinweis. Ich werde alles umbenennen und die Beschreibung anpassen. Das Ganze spiegelt meinen Kenntnisstand bezüglich Go wider. Es wäre vermessen, wenn ich mich als Anfänger bezeichnen würde. Eine Runde habe ich nach der Lektüre der Spielregeln gespielt und das war völlig daneben. (Und das übrigens noch auf der Rückseite des Bretts mit 9x9 Knotenpunkten.) Seither habe ich zumindest mit Hilfe von Videos mal einen Eindruck des Spiels bekommen. Mal schauen, wie es weiter geht. Mit Schach bin ich - als Vergleich - nie wirklich warm geworden und das, obwohl ich Strategie- und Taktikspiele (Brett- und Kartenspiele, nicht online) eigentlich mag.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Sorry for the delay. I have asked Maksimsokolov about this photo on his talk page and (in short) he does not want to change this photo because “it contains the mood of Montreal I felt that day”. IMHO this is a perfectly valid point of view. First, we can see on other photos (e.g. on this POTY 2020 finalist ;–) how colourful autumn actually can be in that province of Canada. Second, we know at least since the discussions about the subjective photography movement by Otto Steinert et all. that photography can be seen as expression of the artist’s mood, impressions and ideas (and not as a mere reflection of reality). The unfortunate point is that in this case the result has by chance some similarity with a postcard; this may explain why Steinert et all. had most success with rather abstract and unconventional subjects). And, of course, this is not the kind of photography we are used to here on the FPC page ;–). The style followed by most of us, including me, has more similarity with the Neue Sachlichkeit (normally insufficiently translated with “New Objectivity”; but Sachlichkeit means also simplicity, rationality, functionality, sense of realism, matter-of-factness). --Aristeas (talk) 08:50, 19 October 2021 (UTC)[]

More space is taken up by the ornate frame than the old photograph (whereas most reproductions we see here of a painting/photograph have the frame cropped out, to focus on the subject.) The old photograph itself is not exceptional quality for the era it's made in, or otherwise extraordinary, so I don't see what makes this FP quality. Buidhe (talk) 21:17, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Buidhe has made a good case against this image. Well, I see it the other way around ;–). The detailed reproduction of the ornate frame which fits the old photograph perfectly in style and size makes this photo special. The old photograph itself is of good quality, I guess it is just (because of the thick glass) a bit out of focus. The theme is also important: the old photograph with its nostalgic frame reminds us of how long how many African Americans have served their country faithfully, but are still not fully respected and acknowledged by many of their fellow citizens. --Aristeas (talk) 06:54, 16 October 2021 (UTC)[]

The extensive list of cases and frames in "the Berg" is a tool to date works from the first years of photography like this (only very few Daguerreotypes or Ambrotypes have information about the date the image was taken on the back of the case or frame).

The colourspace is wrong (ProPhotoRGB) and should be sRGB. ProPhotoRGB is too huge for 8-bit JPG leading to posterising and incorrect colour and nobody has a display that wide anyway. The scene could probably have benefited from HDR to retain some detail on the highlighted bricks. -- Colin (talk) 12:50, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]

    I think I see your point in that the sky is quite a deep, dark blue. But I have checked the histogram and there is no loss of detail in the shadows (which I think you can see when you zoom in), so I would say it is maybe a tad on the dark side but not underexposed. Let's see what others think. DXR, I am pinging you in case there are any changes you'd like to make Cmao20 (talk) 21:53, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[]
    This scene has somewhat low dynamic range, so there is a range of exposures which would not cause clipping on either end. It doesn't mean that all those exposures should be subjectively considered "correct". A bright facade should be much lighter than this. -- King of ♥ 00:20, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Just a QI. I agree the sky looks oddly dark. I think "under exposed" is technically incorrect as one may well expose to avoid clipping or to reduce shadow noise and indent to adjust afterwards to produce an image that appears how one perceived it. The actual exposure isn't really that important outside of extremes. -- Colin (talk) 12:35, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
  • I agree with your point about exposure. What would an FP image of a church facade look like to you? I feel like it's superior to many photos already in the category, compare here or here which are both less sharp and detailed at full size and IMHO are less interesting motifs.

  • One of the problems with photographing tall facades is getting far enough back. This seems there isn't enough room to breath, and the sky clouds just seem to add to the feeling for me. The photos you linked are quite old and I don't think the Warsaw photo would scrape through today. The other one has more interesting features. But maybe tastes vary about what is appealing. -- Colin (talk) 14:11, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Thank you for your fair review. Cmao20 (talk) 16:16, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I comprehend Colin’s “there isn't enough room to breath”, but it could make a difference if one would brighten up the image a bit, as King of Hearts has suggested – IMHO this would give the photo also a lighter, more relaxed mood. So I would suggest to DXR to try it out. --Aristeas (talk) 18:02, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Many thanks for the nomination and reviews. I have brightened the picture by 0.4 EVs, which indeed looks a bit more appropriate on my screen. The facade can only be photographed from a courtyard, so naturally there is a limit to how far back you can move for the photo. I feel that there isn't too much distortion, but personally, I would think of this as a good QI, not necessarily a FP. --DXR (talk) 11:00, 16 October 2021 (UTC)[]

  • DXR I could withdraw if you really don't see it as FP, but seeing support currently outnumbers opposition I intend to let it run for now unless you tell me otherwise. Cmao20 (talk) 21:50, 16 October 2021 (UTC)[]
