  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I'd prefer for you not to change it. I don't think it's overexposed; instead, I felt like it was actually that bright over there, and I like the different shades of the cliffs in the bright sunlight. Plus, if you decrease the highlights, the rest of the picture will lose vivacity and drama. I also think Mile makes a good point about the contrast between the bright sunlight on the left and shadow on the right. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:13, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

I glad someone had the guts to present such a dramatic pic you get from this effect.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Jee, the shadow here is nice and soft (vs this). Did you use flash and/or diffuser? The tone is a little more yellow/warm than the other photo (which possibly is too "cold flash white" coloured). I don't know which is accurate of course, but you might want to experiment with the colour balance a little to see if you prefer a less warm tone. But don't make it as cold as the other one, and if you think this is accurate then fine. -- Colin (talk) 12:51, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Colin: Yes; here the diffuser worked very well at ISO 250. I took many similar picture later. I used in Periyar National Park too though it's a bit difficult to use in such expedition. The underside of banana leaf is quite yellow. I usually and hope here too reduced the kelvin to 5400K. I'll check it again and get back. Jee 13:06, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Usually the food of these damselflies are smaller moths, mosquitoes and other small insects. Here it is able to catch a somewhat bigger moth using its basket legs. But due to the excessive weight, it failed to manage a typical landing; but somehow managed a perch on a leaf and balanced with the tail end of its abdomen. I can see the prey making every effort to escape. When the head of the prey is finished, it moved to a comfortable perch. The white flakes we see in the air, body of the damselfly and leaf are loosen wing-scales of the moth. Jee 04:30, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Big odonates like Orthetrum sabina are able to hunt other near sized odonates or butterflies. But damselflies are weak and supposed to hunt small preys. Any way they need to hunt the prey in air using the basket legs (dragonflies can catch the prey only when the prey is in flight; damselflies can catch/pick small perched preys too) and soon make a comfortable perch using the remaining legs. Here the prey is big and the damselfly failed to kill it fast. It is making some movements to escape. So the damselfly used all the legs to grab the prey and made a strange landing. When the prey became dead, it moved to its classical perch. Jee 02:22, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the answer, that's interesting. If the basket legs are not useful in locomotion, it seems odonates uses also the basket legs also to perch and cling when they have not a prey. Christian Ferrer (talk) 05:39, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Yes. As odonates can't walk, they use their legs to perch and catch. Sometimes they use only the middle legs; using the third row of legs to balance,keeping forelegs unused. The forelegs can be used to clean their eyes as used here. The most interesting perch is this where all legs are used to form a roller bearing. Here it can rotate according to the wing directions without realsing the grips with the branch! That damselfly is a showman enjoying to showcase its gymnastic talents when the wind blows. ;) Jee 06:02, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Thank you for a prompt and clear answer. Sorry, the pic is very cool and it is a great minimalistic photo of a lamp you have cloned, but this is similar to previous discussions about 'mirrored' images. I know that people have different views on this, but I don't think such photos should be in FP since they don't follow the guidelines for Digital manipulations of FPCs. That guideline also states that any such work should be clearly stated in the file's description so please add that. --cart-Talk 00:35, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

  • I actually agree with you about letting in more creative approches, but as the guidelines are now, this falls into a grey area. cart-Talk 13:34, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don't undestand the objections of W.carter, King of Hearts and Martin. The photo is described as a "montage", which is an image created by combining serveral images. It does appear to be the same lamp 3x rather than 3 different lamps brought together at composition time. Perhaps the description text can be improved, but that's hardly a reason to oppose. We have similarly combined images at FP. I'd probably find the image more interesting with three different lamps, perhaps at slightly different angles. And a single lamp is probably too minimal to be interesting. But I think this should be judged on its success as a image rather than how it is described. -- Colin (talk) 09:18, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  • There was extensive discussion the last time a digital manipulation was nominated, with people having strong oppinions pro and con, as seems to be the case here too. Also, the example you mention is more like what we now refer to as a "set". cart-Talk 09:59, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
W.carter I think that example is more problematic as the image might appear to be Liège-Guillemins Station interior but can't exist and does mislead the viewer. Actually my photo deliberately wasn't a set, but a triptych. I wanted it to be viewed as an arrangement of three images. I am also reminded of File:Red LEDs.jpg, which is an actual row of LEDs, and File:Bouncing ball strobe edit.jpg. Two POTY images File:Glühwendel brennt durch.jpg and File:Glühlampe explodiert.jpg have the bulb screw Photoshopped in. Anyway, I just don't think we should rule out "montage" as a valid presentation form at Commons FP. What is regarded as FP (or even, in scope for Commons) is highly variable. -- Colin (talk) 10:28, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Colin, I agree that the triptych concept as such (or versions of it) definitely has a place in FP as in the examples you have given, but all those are of different versions/angles/aspects of something, this is the exact same photo repeated three times, therefore it is more akin to the mirroring images where the same photo is also repeated two times albeit one mirrored. (Sidebar: And if we're going for the repetition theme, the are more interesting ways of doing that). cart-Talk 11:06, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm fully aware that this is a risky nomination. Not because the image is manipulated or the same object is repeated three times but owing to its artistic, rather than illustrative, nature. As a matter of fact I'm not interested in documenting what a street lamp looks like but in using its image to make an abstract composition. Thus the proper criteria to evaluate this nomination should be aesthetical, not encyclopedic. As long as the revewers agree that Common is the right place to host this kind of pictures and FPC is the right place to assess them, of course! Alvesgaspar (talk) 11:27, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I - honestly - love to vote with a strong positive vote for this one. However, as I seem to not having internalized the rules and regulations for FP yet, I hesitated in the beginning. From all comments made so far, to me it all boils down to the question of the artistic versus the documentary value. In this regard, cloning within a photo is toxic to documentation but often a survival factor for arts. In this particular image it's the survival - and winning - factor. I guess that the rules and regulations for nomination of FP's should make more clear how to handle a candidate that is clearly not attempting to document a given scenery or situation. I fully second Alvesgaspar's last comment and would like to add that it would sit well on Commons if purely artistic photographic work could also be awarded with the most prestigious achievements it has to provide.--AWeith (talk) 22:51, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

    • I don't know. Mile, you support a 6MP image and yet complain about minor stitching issues only visible at 100% on a 450 MP image. Commons is a media repository and any sized image can be generated automatically in software when the image is rendered by the server or on your screen. The issue of the author's death is not that we should be more generous, but that there is no prospect to fix the image. Many of the nit-picking complaints at FP are made with the assumption that an active Commons user should be able to fix them and submit a new version. That isn't possible, so we just have to judge it for its pro and con as is. And the pro more than outweigh the con. -- Colin (talk) 08:43, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  • I was looking on 1/3 of resolution - 5 MPx wide. I found some mistakes in a minute and some are to large for FP. Looking at 100% i would probably find more of them. --Mile (talk) 09:06, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Charles, how can Benh fix the issues with your PC or browser? Is he your local tech support? Are you having issues with other 360 panoramas or just this one? I have tried Chrome, Edge and Firefox and they all work fine. In terms of judging the JPG (should one wish to) have you tried downloading it and opening it in an image program (Photoshop, etc) rather than in a browser. I don't think it fair for you to oppose someone's image just because you are having technical issues of your own. -- Colin (talk) 20:30, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Hope you are kidding (but you look serious). You are a regular, yet you don't know how to reach the pano viewer... I did everything and gave proper warning (and Colin added similar instructions on top). Don't blame the picture because you don't read them or don't get the concept of 360°. - Benh (talk) 20:23, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  • No need to be so rude. I have opened the panoramic viewer in Explorer and Chrome. Both show a fixed 360 deg panorama different from the image in the submission. @Benh: Perhaps it would be more polite to suggest a solution rather than insulting me. I am not an idiot.

  • @Ikan Kekek: Hmm this is an issue. I haven't found how to do that. Panoviewer is based on [Pannelum] and looks to have been added to Wikipedia by user:Dschwen. On the Pannellum tutorial we can specify a source from its full URL, but I wasn't able to replicate with panoviewer. I've tried with the viewer on pannellum's website [1] but it says the panorama is too big. What I personally do is downloading the image and view it at home with a viewer. this one works good with me. Yes it's a bit troublesome. - Benh (talk) 08:54, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Thanks for checking into this. It seems like too much trouble, so I'll just ask you: Did you decrease the brightness in any part of the image when editing it? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:03, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
  • I did, in the whole image. But it's a very small adjustment. You'll have to trust me when I claim to have fixed many stitching errors :) But it's quite noticeable even at panoviewer size (Miles was right, we could see them clearly). - Benh (talk) 09:13, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
  • I guess I was right, then. I was a bit disturbed by feeling a loss of light. I definitely trust you on the stitching errors, which I didn't notice in the first place. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:46, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Sorry my mistake... I *increased* brightness. But very slightly (I found it was a bit dark, but I didn't want to make too obvious changes without making it a derivative work). - Benh (talk) 09:55, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Ah, so my perception was wrong. In that case, since I voted for the first version, there's surely no good reason for me to change my vote. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:43, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Have you applied all the lens correction profile you can? The EXIF suggests you may have tried using Lightroom's Upright correction mode, which in my experience isn't always precise enough. Have you tried using the guided mode and drawing vertical lines from the top of all the spikes to their reflection. -- Colin (talk) 18:17, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for your comment. However, I did not apply more noise reduction than I do usually. The effect might be due to the long exposure time and the application of HDR technique. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 23:27, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Nice blue minute - I mean "hour" - photo. :-) (Sunsets in Malaysia are really quick, 20 minutes from start to total darkness, from what I remember). -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 00:24, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
According to timeanddate.com's page for Kuala Lumpur (couldn't find one for Sabah), sunset on the date the photo was taken was at 7:02 local (I assume the camera clock was perhaps an hour ahead, or the sky was heavily clouded. Or both), followed by 22 minutes of "Oh? The day's over?" civil twilight, then 26 minutes of "Now this is blue hour!" nautical twilight, and finally 26 minutes of "Now where did I put the tripod?" astronomical twilight. This compares to a 4:29 p.m. local sunset in New York on the same date, with the c/n/a twilights coming in at 30, 30 and 34 minutes respectively.

So, yes, sunset in Malaysia during the Northern Hemisphere winter is a little shorter than at the lower end of the upper temperate latitudes. But not by much. Daniel Case (talk) 20:43, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Well, I can tell you that my father loved to paint sunsets, and in Terengganu, he didn't even have enough time to sketch a sunset, so subjectively, it's a _much_ quicker sunset! -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:13, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

The purpose of "correcting" vertical perspective is to give the illusion that one is perpendicular to the verticals, which clearly is not reasonable from a position far above the chimneys. There is a slight tilt on the horizon. -- Colin (talk) 18:20, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

  • There are plenty of FPs that are not used in articles. One of the guidelines (above) says: 7.Remember, the goal of the Wikimedia Commons project is to provide a central repository for free images to be used by all Wikimedia projects, including possible future projects.

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)

  • 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)

  • 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 even maybe a bit the WB too. Now your last version is improverd IMO. Christian Ferrer (talk) 14:49, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Overdone is several aspects IMO (distortion, contrast, sharpness, colors). A typical candidate for a prize in WLM, but not for FP, as stated in our guidelines.--Jebulon (talk) 23:27, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Too much distortion. --Yann (talk) 10:26, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support At first sight, the tower looks tilted, but I may be wrong, as the perspective is otherwise OK, particularly at the edges. The sharpening is somewhat overdone, but on the other hand, the noise is extremely well managed, which is really not self-evident. The composition is fine. There is no reason to me to refuse FP star for this image. The quality is still very decent and I'm glad Russian WLM has now quite a high bar on quality (this was not always the case, as you may guess). --A.Savin 23:03, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

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).

  • Mild Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Definitely a good VI/QI, but not a compelling view or composition for FP, in my opinion. Maybe if the sky were more interesting, that might be enough for me to support, though I'd have to see it and decide. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:00, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
