    • Hi W.carter. No, I do not have photos of that particular houseboat as the main subject. but I do have quite a lot of photos of other houseboats in Amsterdam. I just uploaded this one yesterday, and I have more raws in my archives that I am currently looking through and postprocessing. Thanks for your interest. -- Slaunger (talk) 12:08, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
      • Slaunger Ok, we'll see what else you upload. The interesting thing about this one is the water level shot of a houseboat that is more like a floating house and the light, the one you mentioned is top-down and not in a flattering light. --cart-Talk 12:28, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
        • W.carter Most of those I have with good light are top-down views. Most of what I have at water level are in shadow or of questionable technical quality. I'll keep looking. -- Slaunger (talk) 13:08, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

    Rhododendrites has brought back a marvelous series of photos of sea lions from a trip to San Diego, you may have seen some of them at QIC. This is not the usual animal photo to identify a species by counting every hair on the creature. Here the sea lion is part of a composition, leisurely rolling its beautiful curvy body in the clear waves. For me it brings to mind the iconic beach scene in From Here to Eternity only this is another kind of love; the love for nature. -- cart-Talk 22:03, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Great colors, great composition but unfortunately it loses it for me in the processing. Sky looks sort of unnatural (particularly that shade of blue) and the landscape at left looks distinctly waxy. Neither might be completely avoidable but I'd have tried harder to address them. Daniel Case (talk)
  • Thanks, Daniel. The sky is ok, imo, and pretty close to the real situation I was facing when taking the picture. As for the waxy landscape to the left, well... This is not supposed to be some lame excuse like "The dog ate my homework", but I really tried to work with the raw the best way I could. Oversharpening wouldn't help though. The thing is, the good ol' EF 17-40 is "meh" at best between 17 and 20mm. (I'm actually planning on updating to the rather new and much improved 16-35 4 next year). I haven't cropped much, in fact the image is at (almost) max res as provided by the sensor. So pixelpeeping at 100%, especially when not concentrating on the more central parts of the image, might not be the very best idea. --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 10:34, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Weak support I know it's very hard to avoid well but too many tourists on the stage... and think Daniel is right, the sky is a bit purplish as Japanese sky. P.S. I think this angle is almost the best angle for this structure :) --Laitche (talk) 09:26, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think there is something wrong with the processing, with what I see it can be a too big decrease of the highlights (that lead to a loss of color brightness) and then a too big increase of the saturation to to compensate. I would be happy to have the RAW file and to make an attempt. Christian Ferrer (talk) 10:00, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Thanks, Christian. Please also note my reply to Daniel. I really didn't overdo processing here. While it is true that I, of course, decreased highlights a bit, I did not overly increase saturation at all. The usual workflow is a bit different with Canon's DPP when compared to Lightroom... suffice it to say: I kept saturation at standard level. --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 10:40, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support Thanks you, it's better now. In all cases, one need to be carefull when decreasing the highlights as this affect color brightness and aven maybe a bit the WB too. Now your last version is improverd IMO. Christian Ferrer (talk) 14:49, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your question Ikan. I simply like the picture and the exotic flower and believe others will judge if it is a FP. In regard to the "unsharp leaves" I think and know that in photography unsharp foreground and background can help to emphasize the main object. Than the result is only matter of taste and composition. Btw the lighting of this picture is not too bad imo, I believe it is rather intriguing.

Equator monument near Cayambe, Ecuador
The Quitsato Sundial is exactly positioned on the equator line near the town of Cayambe in Ecuador. The equator is the narrow dark line that runs through the base of the cylinder. The northern hemisphere is at the left, the southern one at the right side of the line (see image annotations). A student is seen giving explanations to a tourist.
The equator line near the town of Cayambe was drawn by members of the Ecuadorian army after several months of replicated measurements. I checked it - positively - with my personal GPS receiver :-)
There are a number of other equator lines drawn in Ecuador - such as here and here - which, however, are known to be misplaced for several hundreds of meters at least (also checked by myself).

  • Its automatic clock. If you dont move, weight isnt getting momentum, hence no energy filling. --Mile (talk) 09:21, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
  • In other word, you mean "The watch's weight gains energy whenever the user moves their wrist, enabling the watch to self-wind". Isn't that right? By the way, as a matter of English-language terminology, if you can wear it on your wrist or in your pocket, it's a watch. Clocks are bigger than watches, although the basic mechanism is the same. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:39, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I have spent some time looking at this photo, and this is such a magnified closeup that I wonder whether part of what looks like noise in the far side of the watch's dial is actually reflections in the natural bubbles in the glass. Either way, I just can't argue with that degree of closeup. How did you do it? Valuable, too (nominate for VI). -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:08, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Ikan The magnified closeup is achived by using a macro lens, in this case "OLYMPUS M.60mm F2.8 Macro". A macro lens is defined as one that renders an image onto the sensor that is at least as large as the subject is in reality. Typically the subject has to be very close to the lens, at the minimum focus distance of the lens, in order to achieve that degree of magnification. [Here the watch is larger than the sensor so it won't be a 1:1 macro]. The photosites in a crop sensor (such as APS-C or Micro-four-thirds) are usually much much more densly packed than in a full-frame sensor, which means that the resulting JPG is even more magnified than with a typical full-frame DSLR. However, the depth of focus at such close-up subject distance is tiny e.g. 1mm, so multiple images are taken and then "focus stacked" in software to select the sharp bits from each image and merge them. The focus can be changed either by rotating the focus ring on the lens, or more usually by puting the camera on a "macro focus rail" which lets one smoothly slide the camera forwards or backwards in tiny increments by rotating a knob. Everyone who buys a macro lens takes a photo of their watch. It's simply the done thing. :-) -- Colin (talk) 09:31, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
  • As Colin said, you can see lens used in bottom of EXIF. Macro lens of course. Other stuff is to put it in softbox, use one light, and see where light will be best - you move and move, not just light but reflection also. Light is very important, good handed position make it ad, as Daniel Case saw. Bottom was some black textil (softbox is all white), which i had to remove some latter, still visible at close distance. So for better, i would lift watch for some centimeters above, after what cleaning would be probably unnecessary. Colin is probably thinking on my watch. 5 eur, with 2 batteries. --Mile (talk) 09:59, 1 December 2016 (UTC) p.S. Will put to some "Backside Automatic" on VI. As you can see, we dont have much watch photos, only one is really FP.
  • Yeah, that's a superb photo. But this one isn't bad, either. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:16, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Do we have only one FP of a dragonfly? Of a sunset? Of a cathedral interior? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:23, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
    For me it's more than the mere genre: the light blue main building and the beige and reddish brown buildings in the reflection. -- King of ♠ 07:09, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
    We disagree. The photos aren't that similar. And besides, are variations on a theme verboten for FP? There are several other photos of glass skyscrapers in Chicago by Alvesgaspar that probably merit FP designation. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:09, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info @W.carter: & @Daniel Case:: I have decided long ago not to give detailed descriptive names to the pictures I upload. Two reasons: first, the effort would be inconsistent with the normal practise in Commons, where any language can be used in the file names and no standards exist; second, for someone looking for something the effective way of finding what's needed is searching through categories, not file names. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 11:05, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Not exactly sure what "normal practice" you are referring to since Commons:File naming (links to this are at the top of the FPC page) says: Names should be: - descriptive, chosen according to what the image displays or contents portray. The category system is all very well for folks who are familiar with it, but for the ordinary person (not a community member) the most common way of finding pics is to use the search box. Even if the categories show up there, those who are not familiar with them chose the images that appear based on their file name. Question is: Are you organizing your pics just for the community or for anyone looking? There have been several lively discussions at QIC about proper file names and the majority of posts speak for following the guidelines. Yes, language barriers do exist, but a good file name in any language is better than a bad one. Especially with the new browsers that translate between languages. I'm not asking you to change all your files' names, but since FPs are supposed to be the best, I think we should follow the guidelines for these pics at least. cart-Talk 11:39, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
  • I do comply with the rules in Commons:File naming, at least at a minimal level: the place where the photo was taken (which is also its subject) is referred to, as well as the date. But I won't go any further, with detailed titles like "Reflections on OneEleven Building in Chicago September 2016 - nn". In what FP and QI are concerned, the searching work is much facilitated by the extra categorization given by the FP and QI galleries. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 12:07, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

  • I have already explained the logic behind my naming convention and this is not the place to engage in a theoretical discussion on the subject. Whether the reviewers consider this picture has the merit to become a FP or they do not. Of course, anybody is free to change the names of the existing FP or of any picture in Commons, for that matter. But I'm not going to do it as a requirement for promotion. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 11:36, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Maracaibo was one of first colonies in S. America. Good to see some from there, otherwise, how you always get so much noise (like first version) ? --Mile (talk) 20:47, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
@PetarM: I find this amount of noise in a image taken at ISO 100 unacceptable, and it is really is how my old D300 can genuinely be expected to perform and I've half a mind to sell it someday in mercadolibre. I really like the way the D300 handles, but the actual end results are, frankly, disappointing. I tend to accept that, but also I will say that this camera has a lot of other features and capabilities that can not be provided by any other camera on the price range so full of benefits that this ISO 100 noise is a very very small problem. If you look at the histogram of everything is at the bottom half of the histogram. While this isn't underexposed and even when well exposed the D300 can show noise in shadow areas. I have compared this camera to other D300s and my conclusion is that there is a problem. My shoots are raws and admittedly, the D300 is always a bit muddy... and at higher ISO's a bit smudgy. --The Photographer 21:40, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

    With street photography the wow factor can sometimes be replaced with how much power the image has to make you think or feel a certain way; a certain feeling of empathy and sympathy. If this doesn't do that for you, than I understand completely, and I respect your decision to oppose. lNeverCry 12:51, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Agree. I actually think that the so called "wow-factor" is a rather poor expression since it doesn't cover all the emotions a pic can bring out. I tend to think -Could this photo belong in a National Geographic or Time Magazine article? If so, it should be a FP, it's a photo that makes you look twice or even three times. cart-Talk 15:10, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
  • It all depends - up to a viewer. Neither NG shots are so good, i suppose some half would be out of FP. Or look at most expensive photographs - i would not dare to nominate some 70-80%. Macro shooter and urban have different world, not much in common. So if I see NG and Time fire photographers and use free Wiki i wont be surprised. --Mile (talk) 15:52, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

I would add that while the image of the man alone would be enough for me to support, putting him in the context of his environment and that striking diagonal perspective line ups the wow for me.

I didn't take offense. Even if you were joking, you had a point; it's just that if something's disgusting, the photo would have to be remarkable for it to have a wow factor for me. That reflects my biases, but so does what wows anyone, right? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:41, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Ikan I could rationalise wow factor, as the combination of subject, composition and technique creates all the good photos; okay the subject is the subjective point depending of the cultural background, and here is seeing as bad we analyse the subject, but most of wow is not that vague. -- Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 08:24, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I don't think I agree with you, and since I'm a musician, I'll give you an analogy: Why is it that some people love Philip Glass' music and others hate it? Why is it that some people love Verdi and hate Wagner? Why do some people love Brahms but hate the atonal music of the Second Vienna School? I admit to being in the category of people who hate musical minimalism, but that's not because I think the minimalist composers lack technique; it's because I find the incessant repetition in that style maddening. But I know musicians who are wonderful performers and interpreters, who prefer new music I consider crap to Brahms and Beethoven. It seems like an outlandish opinion to me, but I can't consider them crazy. And my feeling is, if you are only analyzing the way the composition and technique interact with the subject, you are being purely technical and not really looking for the "wow". That would be a perfectly valid form of appraisal, but I'm not sure whether that's actually what you do or just my misunderstanding of what you mean. But since this has become a meta discussion, maybe we should continue it elsewhere. You may post to my user talk page if you like. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:01, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

  • I have no problem believing the colors are real, I have caught far more colorful sunsets (unprocessed file). cart-Talk 11:03, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
  • cart Do you feel gradience is real ? Those spots, where no clouds are, seems like half day, not dusk. --Mile (talk) 12:14, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Oh yes it looks real, this is a quite common phenomenon. There are at least three layers of clouds here, when the sun sets the lowest layer of small clouds can be lit by the sun from the side, the middle thick layer will fall into shadow along with the landscape while the top layer of clouds will be high enough to be very illuminated and therefore much whiter, like it was day. This is the same thing, only there were not as many low dark clouds in that one. And in this you can see the dark low clouds and the high bright ones, imagine if the low clouds in that pic covered the sky with only small openings, then it would look the same way. I could draw a picture if you like to explain better. cart-Talk 12:45, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Hedeselskabet, Headquarter, Viborg, Denmark
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Architecture
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info When Denmark lost the Second Schleswig War to Preussian forces in 1864, it lost a considerable amount of land, see FP of the retreating forces. This led to an increased awareness of the importance of better utilizing the remaining agricultural resources in the country under the motto "Hvad udad tabtes skal indad vindes" (approximately: what was lost externally, shall be reclaimed internally). In 1866, a group of entrepreneurs in Viborg, Denmark formed a producer-controlled corporation called Hedeselskabet (the heath association). One of their objectives was to reclaim moors in central and western Jutland for farming; mostly sandy land abandoned in the 14th century as a result of the Black Plague, but in many cases good for potatoes. Hedeselskabet was thereby part of the Danish cooperative movement emerging in the period 1790-1960. Hedeselskabet still exists today as a private company with its headquarters in Viborg, and it has undergone a lot of organisational changes and it has activities in several countries within agriculture, forestation, environmental area. The current headquarters by C. F. Møller Architects were completed in 1980. I think this 58 Mpixel HDR panorama shows well an architecture, which is closely integrated with the soil, well in line with the history and current activities of the company. -- Slaunger (talk) 21:53, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Daniel Case, Ikan Kekek. You are right wrt your observant review. There are parallax errors in the foreground grass in the lower left section of the image. Not easy to correct as it is three bracketed exposures and it is a handheld panorama. I live very close by, and happened to come by while bringing my camera, but not my tripod, noticing exceptional good light. I could apply a smoothing gradient to introduce some artificial feeling of shallow DOF to simply smooth out the irrelevant details of the foreground grass, but I do not want to change the image now that many have supported the current version or propose an alternative. As a matter of fact I am proud there are not worse parallax errors given there are trees in the foreground with many little twigs, and also slight wind. 9 years ago I had bigger problems. There are actually small problems on the left-most tree at the top, but I do not find it that relevant as it is really the building which has visual focus. But feel free to update your vote. I was actually reluctant to even nominate it due to these technical imperfections, but thought, hey, not all are as pedantic as myself. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:17, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

I think it could benefit from a slight crop of the sky and the water reflection - too much space is used. The view is also slightly off-centered from the main entrance. It seems a little soft in focus (maybe due to 1/50 s shutter) at the modest resolution as compared to usual architectural pictures. The whites seems a bit washed out on the columns.
