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。

If I had under exposed the image chances are you would complain about noise in the shadow areas. Your own eyes would have had a hard time seeing some details on the right side of the building. So a view overexposed patches seem rather natural to me. Sigh. --Uberprutser (talk) 12:18, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I uploaded Hilliards's miniature of Queen Elizabeth I to Commons myself earlier this year. There seems to me to be a couple of issues here: 1 this is a Coetzee bequest image. I'm not sure it's best diplomatic we nominate these images as "Featured" right now 2 are we really going to list every high resolution image of a work of art as "Featured"? They must now run into their tens of thousands if we take account of Google Art Project and galleries such as NGA Washington, Rijksmuseum, and the Prado, to name but just three that come to mind that make available high resolution images, and then both the major auctioneers and others, as well as a host of smaller institutions who take no special steps against stitching their high resolution tiles. I'm inclined to think we should up the bar for art works to "ultra high resolution", such as this one, a van Gogh Sunflowers I recently nominated at Wikipedia Featured Pictures. One interesting thing about Google Art Project images is that fine as they are, they rarely approach the best available from their source museums. This is so for the van Gogh I nominated. That one comes from the Van Gogh Museum as you can readily check by going to the appropriate museum page. It's much superior to the Google Art project version.

So is Van Gogh's Sunflowers. What exactly is the perspective issue here? It's 18mm on a f3.5 lens, pretty standard. Looks fine to me. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 08:59, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Take a look at the bottom of the columns at the left side - they look rather distorted. The columns are not fully straight in real but also not that converging as the photo implies (take a look on other photos in the same catgegory). But the main reason for my oppose is the massively blown red channel not the perspective. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:09, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Colors are definitely in vivid mode and may be overdone, I'm curious though what could I have possibly do better next time to make the columns more straight? Do you think that the lenses distorted the actual view? Pundit (talk) 09:12, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Have you used a tripod in combination with a leveler? Have you done any perspective corrections on the computer or is the photo "out of the cam"? --Tuxyso (talk) 11:24, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
I have Nikon Capture NX2 and it's default Distortion control of 10% has a barely noticeable effect on the image. The saturation isn't "massive". It's comfortably within 10% in NX2 I would say and a glance at the category confirms the image is not deceiving the viewer, the FP criterion. There's no such thing as the "right" image in photography (lesson 1) and I'm worried that criticism at this level might be alienating ordinary contributors with realtively unsophisticated equipment or resources. It's essentially elitist in my view, and while it has it may have place amongst established contributors of images on Commons, I do think we should be wary of discouraging new contributors. The image looks great. End of. And my comment about composition is quite right, as you can readily confirm looking through the category. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 14:06, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
There’s no such thing as "the image looks great" (lesson 2), it just may look great for you. Please allow others to have entirely different views and opinions. And de gustibus non est disputandum. For instance, I don’t approve of candy colours at all. My nomination of Pen-y-ghent from the east looks great too for me, but nobody seems to like it. So what? --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 14:21, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Called "wow" here (lesson 3, there really is such a thing). You're not raising issues of taste but technical matters as if they preclude nomination prima facie . And of your two nominations of Pen-y-ghent I supported the first but not the second from the east, which is quite ordinary lacking all wow. What I didn't do was post an "oppose" saying it was nothing special in my own view and opinion to which I'm surely entitled. I would only do that, and probably as a comment, if I felt the image was receiving inordinate praise. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 17:19, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
No perspective corrections or tripod, I leaned the camera on one of the poles of stability. Pundit (talk) 11:55, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Colors are over saturated and when you tilt the lens you will gets perspective distortion. When it looks good, what's the problem? Seems like that perspective is the new noise to complain about. --Baykedevries (talk) 13:40, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

    • @Fotoriety: Thanks for the review. Regarding the foregound and surroundings in general I left some space around to allow the building to "breathe". For me the featureless foreground helps the main subject to stand out. Is it correct that you think it should have been cropped tighter? I am sorry you do not like the lightning. I really like it myself and how the sky and coads are partially reflected in the curved ceramic shields surrounding the building. Anyway, there are so many possibilities for taking photos of this building regarding the vantage point, time of day and weather conditions. It is almost like a chameleon to me. If you look at the other photos in Viborg power plant, are there any elements in the framing, light vantage point in some of the other shots which are worthwhile to explore further in your opinion? I live close by, so it is easy to take new shots at it. Or, are you just non-wowed by this building in general? --Slaunger (talk) 06:31, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
      • @Slaunger: It's hard to say how i would like this photo to be taken because i don't know the dynamics of the environment. However, i agree that a tighter crop would help; as would perhaps lighting such as the bright glow from a sunset also being reflected in the facade. Perhaps also if the photo could be taken at a higher level to give greater depth, that may improve the composition. However, i realise it's a power plant, so room for manoeuvre may be limited. Hope that helped.Fotoriety (talk) 01:07, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Sure I can do a search, but I'm not going to. If you think a picture is feature worthy you can take the time to add a decent description.

        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Since I haven’t understood your point yet, let me ask once again: What do you expect? Or maybe point out some of the active nominations that do have descriptions after your liking (most don’t have any at all, just "c/u/n by $NAME", without you complaining, AFAIS). I really don’t know what you mean. The picture shows the Pennine Way climbing a mountain named Pen-y-ghent from its southern side. That’s what my description says, so IMHO it’s a proper description of the photograph. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 22:22, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
          • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with Baykedevries that often file descriptions (on the file page - it is those that matters) are inadequate as important information is often missing regarding the particular image, but this is not one of those cases. The file page is adequately categorized to e.g. Pen-y-ghent and Pennine Way and if you follow those links, there are interwiki links to articles in several different languages (after I have added them, that is, as they were initially missing). If the nominator were to copy that information to the file page (in how many languages?), it would just be maintenance of redundant information. It would contaminate, not add value. I do think though that it is generally a good idea if nominators check that main categories are adequately linked to wikipedia articles, such that the relevant information can be found fast and efficient. The interwiki links are often missing on Commons categories. --Slaunger (talk) 23:21, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

If you see here an imitation of a face with two eyes - emphasize it by more lead room on the right (if possible) and a tighter crop on the left (and maybe on bottom too).

An example of some of the beacons that marked key sites in territory at the Cape claimed by the Dutch. Both are made of Robben Island slate and bear the coat-of-arms of the Netherlands (a lion with seven arrows representing the seven Dutch provinces). This beacon was found on the farm Ongegundefontein on the southern side of Olifants River mouth, near present-day Papendorp, and was donated to the South African Museum in 1893.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I uploaded Hilliards's miniature of Queen Elizabeth I to Commons myself earlier this year. There seems to me to be a couple of issues here: 1 this is a Coetzee bequest image. I'm not sure it's best diplomatic we nominate these images as "Featured" right now 2 are we really going to list every high resolution image of a work of art as "Featured"? They must now run into their tens of thousands if we take account of Google Art Project and galleries such as NGA Washington, Rijksmuseum, and the Prado, to name but just three that come to mind that make available high resolution images, and then both the major auctioneers and others, as well as a host of smaller institutions who take no special steps against stitching their high resolution tiles. I'm inclined to think we should up the bar for art works to "ultra high resolution", such as this one, a van Gogh Sunflowers I recently nominated at Wikipedia Featured Pictures. One interesting thing about Google Art Project images is that fine as they are, they rarely approach the best available from their source museums. This is so for the van Gogh I nominated. That one comes from the Van Gogh Museum as you can readily check by going to the appropriate museum page. It's much superior to the Google Art project version.

So is Van Gogh's Sunflowers. What exactly is the perspective issue here? It's 18mm on a f3.5 lens, pretty standard. Looks fine to me. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 08:59, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Take a look at the bottom of the columns at the left side - they look rather distorted. The columns are not fully straight in real but also not that converging as the photo implies (take a look on other photos in the same catgegory). But the main reason for my oppose is the massively blown red channel not the perspective. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:09, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Colors are definitely in vivid mode and may be overdone, I'm curious though what could I have possibly do better next time to make the columns more straight? Do you think that the lenses distorted the actual view? Pundit (talk) 09:12, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Have you used a tripod in combination with a leveler? Have you done any perspective corrections on the computer or is the photo "out of the cam"? --Tuxyso (talk) 11:24, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
I have Nikon Capture NX2 and it's default Distortion control of 10% has a barely noticeable effect on the image. The saturation isn't "massive". It's comfortably within 10% in NX2 I would say and a glance at the category confirms the image is not deceiving the viewer, the FP criterion. There's no such thing as the "right" image in photography (lesson 1) and I'm worried that criticism at this level might be alienating ordinary contributors with realtively unsophisticated equipment or resources. It's essentially elitist in my view, and while it has it may have place amongst established contributors of images on Commons, I do think we should be wary of discouraging new contributors. The image looks great. End of. And my comment about composition is quite right, as you can readily confirm looking through the category. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 14:06, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
There’s no such thing as "the image looks great" (lesson 2), it just may look great for you. Please allow others to have entirely different views and opinions. And de gustibus non est disputandum. For instance, I don’t approve of candy colours at all. My nomination of Pen-y-ghent from the east looks great too for me, but nobody seems to like it. So what? --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 14:21, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Called "wow" here (lesson 3, there really is such a thing). You're not raising issues of taste but technical matters as if they preclude nomination prima facie . And of your two nominations of Pen-y-ghent I supported the first but not the second from the east, which is quite ordinary lacking all wow. What I didn't do was post an "oppose" saying it was nothing special in my own view and opinion to which I'm surely entitled. I would only do that, and probably as a comment, if I felt the image was receiving inordinate praise. Coat of Many Colours (talk) 17:19, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
No perspective corrections or tripod, I leaned the camera on one of the poles of stability. Pundit (talk) 11:55, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

    • @Fotoriety: Thanks for the review. Regarding the foregound and surroundings in general I left some space around to allow the building to "breathe". For me the featureless foreground helps the main subject to stand out. Is it correct that you think it should have been cropped tighter? I am sorry you do not like the lightning. I really like it myself and how the sky and coads are partially reflected in the curved ceramic shields surrounding the building. Anyway, there are so many possibilities for taking photos of this building regarding the vantage point, time of day and weather conditions. It is almost like a chameleon to me. If you look at the other photos in Viborg power plant, are there any elements in the framing, light vantage point in some of the other shots which are worthwhile to explore further in your opinion? I live close by, so it is easy to take new shots at it. Or, are you just non-wowed by this building in general? --Slaunger (talk) 06:31, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
      • @Slaunger: It's hard to say how i would like this photo to be taken because i don't know the dynamics of the environment. However, i agree that a tighter crop would help; as would perhaps lighting such as the bright glow from a sunset also being reflected in the facade. Perhaps also if the photo could be taken at a higher level to give greater depth, that may improve the composition. However, i realise it's a power plant, so room for manoeuvre may be limited.

          • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with Baykedevries that often file descriptions (on the file page - it is those that matters) are inadequate as important information is often missing regarding the particular image, but this is not one of those cases. The file page is adequately categorized to e.g. Pen-y-ghent and Pennine Way and if you follow those links, there are interwiki links to articles in several different languages (after I have added them, that is, as they were initially missing). If the nominator were to copy that information to the file page (in how many languages?), it would just be maintenance of redundant information. It would contaminate, not add value. I do think though that it is generally a good idea if nominators check that main categories are adequately linked to wikipedia articles, such that the relevant information can be found fast and efficient. The interwiki links are often missing on Commons categories. --Slaunger (talk) 23:21, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

La composition est assez simpliste, et le premier plan est en fait malvenu et n'apporte rien (contrairement à la nomination du canal ci-dessus, qui guide le regard). Ça pourrait être compensé par une jolie lumière, comme sur ta nomination précédente, mais ici, ça semble pris à 18h. À cette heure là, en été, la lumière n'est pas assez rasante et ne crée pas assez d'ombre pour donner une ambiance magique. Juste mon avis !

An example of some of the beacons that marked key sites in territory at the Cape claimed by the Dutch. Both are made of Robben Island slate and bear the coat-of-arms of the Netherlands (a lion with seven arrows representing the seven Dutch provinces). This beacon was found on the farm Ongegundefontein on the southern side of Olifants River mouth, near present-day Papendorp, and was donated to the South African Museum in 1893.
