  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I find this an interesting picture to look at. Good quality mostly as well. But I have a concern about some of the colors in there. For example the green on the trees to the left - it seems very strong kind of green. Were the trees illuminated by green lamps? It feels maybe oversaturated. Same concern is about the blueness of the sky on the left as it feels too colorful aswell. Again, I can't tell for sure if it really was like this, or if the picture is slightly oversaturated? All best, --Ximonic (talk) 11:46, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • The differnce of colors because of the lamps with different color temperature on the street (there are lamps with cold white light near the green trees and others are yellow warm). The right part of the sky is a bit cloudy and has more "parasite light" from the street lamps. Thank You. --Moahim (talk) 13:11, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question - How do I look for the aura? I do agree that the first version is better. I would consider voting for it. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:57, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Ikan, only gifted people can see an aura :-). It is usually a glow (rather than darkening) around a high contrast edge, often caused by tonemapping with too much local contrast (Clarity) or highlight recovery. Sometimes it is just an unfortunate positioning and the lighter/darker areas are real. Sometimes it is a bit of an optical illusion. -- Colin (talk) 07:38, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sun-lit subject against a dark rain cloud always looks impressive. But the subject here is just a block of flats, and the contrast-processing is excessive. -- Colin (talk) 07:38, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Yes, I put out some bird food (which is why I call it a set-up), which the squirrels steal anyway. I found it was the only way to get a mouth-open shot. If you put a nut out, he/she grabs it and runs away. Charles (talk) 19:57, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

I guess it is your conservatory forming the catchlight. I keep thinking the poor squirrel has an eye defect. I don't know if you can do any photoshop magic or try again from another angle. It is a shame because otherwise it is good. -- Colin (talk) 07:53, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • I thought about changing the catchlight of my conservatory, but it is so clear I decided to keep it as the setting is not pretending to be in the wild (though the squirrel is wild!) Charles (talk) 08:26, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg weak support It is a nice picture, but I think it is to nice for this theme. Habitator terrae (talk) 14:07, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Feels like it could be an FP ... if it were either part of a larger stitched panorama of the entire mine or it was just one of its elements. As it is there's just so much going on here as to make it feel chaotic despite the regularity of the layers—the different colors of the earth, the equipment, the shadow at the bottom, the sky (which despite being minimal feels like too much).

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The only feature I can find to this photograph is its age, because it's old, and thus has a special value. But apart from that, the quality is quite bad for a static subject, even for the period, and the contrasts with the light too strong. Fifteen years earlier, this picture of the author, Eugène Trutat taken in 1885 was much better and also for me more interesting -- Basile Morin (talk) 02:11, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Your comment is fair. For easy-to-capture images I set my technical standards higher than hard-to-repeat-shots which require different skils. As set out in FP criteria. This one was captured on a pitching boat, demanding 1/1000 sec and ISO 800. It's not a portrait, so the definition of the seal close-up cannot be compared with, say, my squirrel (new FPC nom.)

*Symbol support vote.svg Support Scary... And for those who still wonder about size for gifs, this image consists of 79 frames so the real file size is 79 x 1,280 × 720 pixels = 72.8 Mpx which is very large for a complex gif.

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral The animation runs too fast, making the file less useful.--Peulle (talk) 10:05, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Peulle, just what I thought. This is set to a 0.1 sek change rate. If you look at the file's page (Other versions) you can see that I have made a version that runs at only 0.5 sek speed. If need be I can make other versions that run even slower so that it is possible to examine the map at any speed you like. I think the 'fast' original gives you a good quick idea of what's going on, after that you can get nerdy and examine the map more closely. It's even possible to extract the individual images from this gif and make a still series of it. --Cart (talk) 10:31, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, the slower one works better. I'm still considering opposing, though, since I also think it should be bigger; the ideal use of this file (IMO) is on a powerpoint presentation on a big screen in front of a crowd, and for big projector screens, the current size is not ideal. Btw.: having the individual images available for separate viewing, as in an album, would be useful, so there could be a link to that in the files.--Peulle (talk) 10:39, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Since it is a gif you always have to factor in the number of images when it comes to size. This consists of 79 images and that is about as big as the system can handle, so a bigger image is not possible. See above for how to calculate the size of a gif. This is the equivalent of a 72.8 Mpx image. Btw, the image reaches a bigger audience via people's phones than powerpoint, so IMO that is the ideal use. --Cart (talk) 10:44, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • At my computer the fast version is not so good, too, because my internet is to slow. But after you wait the gif has run one time, you see the gif with the true speed. You also could see on a smaller version, than the original version (with the descripted problem). In my view. The fast version, because, you see the weather changes (5 years) and see also the climate changes (>30 years), where the focus is on. So it shows very good, that weather isn't climate. The slow version doesn't discribe this so good, I think. Habitator terrae (talk) 11:26, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Illustrates well why this 30-year-old image format should not be used in this millennium. We can now stream video, adapt the quality to the bandwidth, speed it up or slow it down in real time, pause it, and whizz forward and backward at will. This is eye-candy, visually intrusive, CPU hogging, bloated and I get the point on the very first pass so why loop? I can't see how anyone would enjoy reading and pay attention to an article on this serious topic with this flickering away in the corner of your screen. Also, what's with the filename? An "anomaly" is a [singular] deviation from standard, not a trend upwards. -- Colin (talk) 11:22, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Even so, the format is not prohibited and sometimes more reliable/easier to play than video files. Why else would there be need for the constant "Problems playing the file?" on video files. Last year a gif ended up on third place in POTY. --Cart (talk) 12:12, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
  • The heart isn't quite so distracting with colour flicker as this. But even so, a video format would have been better. If WMF have problems with playing videos then they should invest in making a better player. I don't have any problems playing youtube videos. And with modern video editing suites it would be trivial to produce a 4K, HD, SD, etc version. --Colin (talk) 13:08, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

    @El Grafo, Charlesjsharp: Yes, I know Fahrenheit isn't in the SI, but here we see only the anomaly. And there is a°F-b=a°C-b=c°K-b. So this is irrelevant. Habitator terrae (talk) 12:55, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Wonderful. I can look at this in 4K and it is smooth like a lava lamp and inevitably moves towards hot.

Exactly what FP should aim for. -- Colin (talk) 16:00, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
Habitator terrae, I still think (after the nomination closes) the filename(s) should be changed. NASA's title is "Global Temperature Anomalies from 1880 to 2017" which would be a much better title, though their claim that the baseline of "1951 to 1980" is "normal" and so the red, yellow and blue represent "anomalies" is strange language -- they are deviations from an arbitrary baseline but hardly unexpected or irregular. Still, picking NASA's title is better than this one. -- Colin (talk) 12:16, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
@Colin, Habitator terrae: "temperature anomaly relative to $reference_period" is exactly how climatologists call this kind of thing. So yes, that's how the file should be named, imho. The reference period doesn't really matter, as temperature during the reference period just serves as a baseline; this is never meant to imply that the average temperature from 1951 to 1980 would be somehow normal or natural, it's just one way of looking at things. --El Grafo (talk) 07:47, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
El Grafo, the thing is it isn't an "anomaly" but "Global Temperature Anomalies from 1880 to 2017", which should be the filename. It is quite misleading to use the singular (and echo's Trump's recent claim that "it'll change back" as though this is all just a blip). As for "normal", see the NASA article, which repeatedly (and IMO incorrectly) keeps referring to "Higher than normal" and "Lower than normal", rather than the correct neutral term "baseline". At least the Commons file description doesn't make that mistake. -- Colin (talk) 10:46, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

He was doing some tagging when I interrupted him, so not irrelevant. The are in Swedish and says (translated): "Smoked mackerel 15.90:-/hg" and "Herring pickled with crayfish 25:-/hg". The are very much part of the environment in a Swedish fish stall, as are the tools of his trade in the background: cart with crushed ice, shovel for said ice, etc. --Cart (talk) 17:56, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
  • But it's posed photo, so composition can be carefully chosen. The fishmonger was not be presenting such a large fish for sale, so the tage for other fishes are not relevant. His expression is not natural. Charles (talk) 07:55, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes it is a posed photo, staged in a perfect way. There is a long tradition in imagery to depict people with their tools and associated things around them (1, 2, 3) Without the items, the image would be sterile and have no context. His head is centered on that shiny steel thing, giving the illusion of a 'halo' and the fish has plenty free headroom to 'swim out' into. --Cart (talk) 09:19, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Hi there - the darkness may be possible to fix with simple brightening. By "downsized" I mean that this image is only 3,872 × 2,581 pixels, and the camera used has the potential to shoot 6016 × 4000 pixels. Please see the Guidelines: "Images should not be downsampled (sized down) in order to appear of better quality." Certainly, for FPs, we require as high a resolution as possible, unless the image has many redeeming features (big wow factor).--Peulle (talk) 19:15, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Original nomination
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This is an old FP from 2006. I don't think it was all that great in 2006, and it certainly is not any more today. There's nothing special in this that would make it stand out among other maps, let alone induce a"wow"-effect. It has a couple of issues, listed here in no particular order: 1) There's a typo in the legend ("Curent"). 2) The legend expands below the mapped region. It should either be completely inside or completely outside. 3) No sources have been given for the historic borders. 4) No sources have been given for the geodata used to create the base map (coast lines, rivers, modern borders). 5) The border of the 1236 Dutchy changing color where it overlaps with the 1920-1923 republic is a bit confusing. 6) Why does the en:Vistula stop short of the baltic sea in the North? 7) Names of some places could benefit from better placement so that they do not overlap with the borders (which, btw, could use better signatures). If someone would like to work on that, there is an SVG version available that could be nominated once the issues have been resolved. --El Grafo (talk) 12:33, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

But there wasn't enough space to go to right without having the post in front of the tram. I picked up a disturbing bench in front of the tram and moved it to the right. IMO it's the best view of this side of tram without having too much disturbing elements. And there is wall at the right too. So your proposed position may be an impossible choice. And the light is the light of a good afternoon. The building is closed at night or sunset or other light conditions.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose A very nice idea, if only the leaf had been in a different position, perhaps fanning out from the same place as the other two stems. Sorry. --Cart (talk) 09:34, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'm sure why no-one is voting on it, because there is no composition, the photo is not in a particular light, not with interesting colours to be an exceptional photo. Even its a important flower, named "Rosa Koningin von Dänemark", which means "Queen of Denmark". Sorry. --Marc-Lautenbacher 14:36, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

I think one could recover some more information of the white clouds from the RAW file, they look a little bit blown (maybe not completely avaoidable). --Code (talk) 05:01, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This image was voted FP in 2005 (votes 7 vs 3) and I feel that 13 years later, standards have increased somewhat. Looking in the pheasant gallery, there are two other similar images, at least one of which has significantly higher resolution and sharpness. (Original nomination)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist -- Peulle (talk) 14:14, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist I think you are right. With all that CA and lack of detail, this one is not up to it any more. --Cart (talk) 16:23, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist , but neither of these two photos deserves a star anymore, either: File:Paonroue.JPG, File:Carnavalesco.jpg. Maybe someone who's inspired and has excellent equipment can take a wonderful photo with true color, no posterization and a 3-dimensional feel. (this one, which is not head-on, is arguably better, as the head is clearly 3-dimensional.) -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 00:45, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Just the right shutter speed to get the motion and texture of the water, and not freeze it or turn it into 'misty methane'. -- Cart (talk) 12:00, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Oh man, I really liked this one as a thumbnail but when looking at the full size ... I mean, the water looks fine, it's just that everything else does not. Why do stationary objects like a rock and a tree not look sharper? Was not a tripod used? It also sort of looks overprocessed to me.--Peulle (talk) 13:52, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The lack of sharpness seems to be a consequence of using f/32. Using an ND filter you might get better results. --Basotxerri (talk) 14:07, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Looks good to me. The tree is plenty sharp at 300% of my laptop screen. It could be sharper at full size, but I think this is not important. As for the rocks, there is mist between them and the viewer. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:52, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Given the combination of extremely narrow aperture and very fast ISO, I'm inclined to believe what we have is the result of a tradeoff on the photographer's part and this may be the best we can get. Daniel Case (talk) 17:38, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

A man carries a huge hammerhead
  • Precisely because it's so unusual, per the similar argument you make about difficult-to-shoot animal photos. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:55, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Slightly different argument as this is an opportunistic photo Ikan Kekek, but quite special. I think I've seen it in The Times. Charles (talk) 10:32, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I didn't realise stuff had been cloned out. Thanks Peulle. Charles (talk) 14:35, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Now there is something you don't see every day. Thankfully, since seven of the nine hammerheads are on the endangered list. Wow + powerful image wins over quality. Plus we recently promoted a bug that was downsized to 3,000 × 2,171 pixels and everybody just ignored that. If this was downsized to the same size, the quality would look ok. --Cart (talk) 22:02, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don't really care whether the flatten metal tin (?) get put back or not for Commons' purpose. I prefer the edited version. -- KTC (talk) 20:53, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support JukoFF (talk) 11:05, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'm not at all satisfied with this edited version. Firstly, the quality (such as the noise) of both images can be criticized, which means that the subject matter (the "wow") is what carries the most weight. Given that, I see no reason why an edited version should be nominated instead of the original. Secondly, touching up some shadows might be fine, but when you go to such lengths as cloing out litter from the street (again, for what possible reason?), effectively changing the scene, it gets a hard 'no' from me. Frankly, I'm astonished none of the professionals supporting above have pointed this out.--Peulle (talk) 14:24, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • I'm a little confused with how cloning out some trash here is different from cloning out two birds in a previous nom (supported by Peulle and Charles). Here the cloning is declared with a {{retouched}} template, while that is not the case on the bird photo. --Cart (talk) 15:40, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Don't put words in my mouth. I did not support the cloning out of those birds, as you can clearly see in the conversation I even considered removing my support of the photo entirely, but it would have passed anyway.--Peulle (talk) 15:52, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Ok, just asking since you didn't remove it. --Cart (talk) 15:58, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Because the destructive edition cited by Peulle. I preffer the original version without any color or scene alteration. I added a selective noise reduction to the original version --Photographer 17:03, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I'd agree with putting the litter back in the photo, since it's part of the scene in this war-scarred city. I'm not really seeing destructive edits, though. What's more than minor? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:06, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • In my opinion, there could be made some minor improvements like shadows and highlights, but since the quality isn't primarily what is being judged here, why not jut nominate the original instead? That's my main beef anyway.--Peulle (talk) 20:02, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't think any kind of editing is acceptable for photo reports. Subjectively I also find the tonal touch ups less than desired or needed. -- KennyOMG (talk) 19:27, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I prefer this version with the recovered highlights on the stones on the right and brightened shadows on the left. The removal of the trash on the left is fine for me: It is disturbing the balance of the image, and there's plenty of trash left in the picture so that removal of this single piece does not affect the picture's integrity. It's a much stronger image without it. Similarly, removal of that white piece of building (?) in the background it totally fine for me as it is distracting, is not identifiable, and in reality would be covered by trees as well had the camera been positioned a little bit more to the left or the trees grown a little bit more. Imho, this is exactly how a reputable professional photojournalist would edit this. --El Grafo (talk) 09:45, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very good. --Moahim (talk) 16:53, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
