View from the Top of the World Highway, Yukon, Canada
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Natural
  • Pictogram voting info.svg  Info View of an unpaved section of the Top of the World Highway, Yukon, Canada. The highway is so named because, along much of its length, it skirts the crest of the hills, giving looks down on the valleys. It is also one of the most northerly highways in the world at those latitudes and only open in the summer months. Poco2 13:33, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Old woman grey hair wrinkled skin from Laos
  • Probably this right thing you're talking about is a fisher net. Thanks -- Basile Morin (talk) 08:02, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment I know she is old and probably a bit worn out so she hunches. Unfortunately this angle makes her head look too big for her body, it almost looks like the image of the head is tacked onto a pic of the body. The light on her face is great but the whole thing looks a little strange. --Cart (talk) 09:29, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • I understand, but some deviation from this angle or posture would have been better. --Cart (talk) 11:47, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg  Oppose Per Cart. It may well be "life" but as a photographer you have choices about angle-of-view, how to crop and whether to use a longer more-flattening focal length. Skin looks like too much noise reduction applied. Btw, I'm really, not keen to reduce photos of people to simply the sum of some (often negative) visible attributes: old woman; white shirt; grey hair; wrinkled skin. Doesn't seem very respectful. In the other photo, she's a "grandmother", which is a nicer way to describing a fellow human being. -- Colin (talk) 11:53, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg  Info about changing the angle. This person has a twisted back File:Old_woman_of_Don_Puay_grey_hair_wrinkled_skin_twisted_back.jpg. This was the best angle I could get -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:04, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • That photo is much better wrt her posture in the composition, giving a flow to the head and body. Nothing that looks 'tacked on' in that. Her head is gently titled and the neck creates a nice line down to her blose which is so generous that you don't think about her back if hadn't been in the file name. --Cart (talk) 12:30, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg  Info The dust spots belong to the image : for snowflakes to form, you need a cristallisation center ("nucleus"). All these dust spots are future snowflakes, and there is one at the very center of the snowflake. They also act as a "reality proof" : this way you know that the picture is a true one and has not been made thanks to a computer program. FredD (talk) 16:30, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

I think it would be a big help for you to read the Image Guidelines first, so you know what is expected from an FP.

Anton Francesco dello Scheggia - The Seven Virtues
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment Not a mosaic (tempera and gold leaf are painting techniques) but it is painted in a style to emulate a Bysantine mosaic, hence the gold leaf. Mosaics were very fashionable at the time, but few could afford them. I agree that the colors are not very well captured. There is some croma noise we could do without. --Cart (talk) 20:26, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg  Oppose Fine for 10 years ago but not acceptable for a studio image from 2017. Our guidelines strongly discourage downsizing. High JPG compression and posterised lighting. No colourspace specified/embedded. Yann, none of our Commons regular photographers would get away with nominating 3.95MP studio image in 2018. Why don't you try contacting the photographer to upload their 16MP original (assuming it is like their other photos) and we can then judge it against what the finest photographers on Commons are nominating in 2018. -- Colin (talk) 20:12, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Colin: What makes you know that it is a studio image (i.e. not a real show)? Regards, Yann (talk) 06:57, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Because all their other photos are studio photos. And the lighting. -- Colin (talk) 08:04, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
  • That this is staged was my first reaction to it. Had it been a real show, there wouldn't have been a wall that close behind the dancers. The flow of her hair and the fabric would also require a big fan or wind machine, you don't get that from motion alone. Plus the light, stage spotlights create much harder shadows than this. (I've seen hundreds of ballets and danced myself, so gut feeling.) --Cart (talk) 08:43, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg  Support Basically per Poco. The only weakness (I agree) is the resolution. It's only a 4 Mpx image, well. But the minimum accepted here is 2 Mpx, necessary for a good quality print. That's twice bigger than the minimum. Sure it's not huge, it's not 4K for example. But this is clearly a professional picture, taken with technical accessories, and rarer thing, involving professional dancers. How many of us regular photographers take and nominate on Commons such kind of original pictures ? This image is special in its kind, and will be interesting to enrich the collection, because it doesn't look like any other. I also rather like the composition with the red scarf floating in the wind and the entwined people choreographing -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:09, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
    • Basile Morin, question. Are you going to commit from now on to only reviewing other images here at 3.95MP, i.e. long axis no larger than 2400px. That means never again complaining about noise, CA, sharpness, oversharpening halos, etc, etc. Because, from 24/36/42/50MP camera downsized to 3.95MP, none of those things will be visible. The 2MP standard was set when a TV resolution was 720 × 525 (0.38MP) and HDTV wasn't available. This doesn't even fit a QHD monitor, never mind the 4K TVs being sold in supermarkets. This resolution is too low to print even one page of a glossy magazine. How about if the rest of us started uploading at 3.95MP too ... would you still support? I agree it is a well taken image, if a bit contrived/unrealistic, but I don't see why the photographer can't be asked to upload the 16MP original. -- Colin (talk) 08:06, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Sharpness, noise, etc. are important to take in consideration when the size of the image is essential. Landscapes for example. This kind of picture is special, perhaps limit with the size, and of course it would be better to get a higher res, but in the uncertainty I decide to support as it is -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:10, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

The light is nice in both pictures, but this one feels to me like a photo of a phenomenon, not a picture with such a compelling composition. At least 3 people would seem to disagree with me. I'll live with this a little longer, because there's something to be said about the light itself creating a shape, but I'm currently leaning toward opposing this one. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:55, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

This shouldn't be declared a requirement for support. Most people here are photographers in the first place - not botanists. ;-) --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 05:52, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
I understand that, but this is FPC, and I think that for this photo to be truly outstanding, the tree, which is a primary subject and for its particular shape as a deciduous tree with leaves, really should be identified. Johann, if you're confident, we can add that category and be done with it. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:17, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Spruce tree stump in Gullmarsskogen ravine
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Natural
  • Pictogram voting info.svg  Info The ravine in Gullmarsskogen Nature Reserve is carved out by a stream and tall trees grow both in and around the ravine. The ravine is in an almost perpetual dusk, even on sunny days, the sun only pierce the foliage with bright spots of light. (More info at the category) This creates an almost magical light down in the ravine, but it is also very difficult to handle when shooting. Even HDR is sometimes not enough with the extremely bright spots next to darkness. I have tried to fix up the photos of the scenes as they appear IRL.

I'm not able to see what is to be removed or even what is disturbing, furthermore I'm not very excited about changing anything, because exception made to lose quality by editing this high resolution jpg I'm not able to see what we have to win in overwriting this file, or by creating a new one very very similar. No sorry I will not edit it, and I tend to disagree that someone do that for so small gain. Christian Ferrer (talk) 05:52, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg  Oppose until these 10477 black pixels are removed. Opening the picture at full size on Photoshop (or any other picture viewer), these lines are very visible. You see them even better by pasting the image on a white background. Which means they will appear on any print, corrupting the so-called "good quality" certification. We're here to select featured pictures. This mistake from the photographer is clearly a lack of requirement, accordingly to our official image guidelines. I don't think my screen invents anything. Such a correction will not reduce the quality of the image since the good pixels are not transformed. Also minor crops on existing files are totally valid, per Commons:Overwriting_existing_files#Minor_improvements -- Basile Morin (talk) 09:28, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
"very"?! I guess the word does not have the same meaning for all of us. And yes re-save a jpg mean a loss of quality, each time you save a jpg you have a new compression. And in order to remove a 1 pixel black line invisible for almost everybody exception made by who know where to look or maybe except for 1% of the viewers? Yes you will damage more pixels than you will remove, you will damage here 25 million pixel in order to remove those almost invisible 10477 pixels (furthermore 10477 pixels? I let to you the responsibility of this number). To oppose for that is silly. And an incentive to edit jpg files (=loss of quality) for only a few pixels may even be harmful for the project IMO.

Sorry I don't read the same thing as you. And for the screenshot, I see that only on your screenshot, I'm also sorry but at full resolution I'm not able to see that. The purpose of FP project is to promote the finest, not to put the finest in the file histories. I prefer an oppose vote and I even prefer that the image be not promoted than to run after a "support" or after a potential promotion at the prize of damage of the image. Sorry, end of discussion for me. Christian Ferrer (talk) 12:26, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment Basile has a point. The bottom black line is not nice. It can easily get cropped without any loss of quality. Regards, Yann (talk) 15:42, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment - The black line looks like it's damage to the painting. If it's actually on the painting, I don't think the photo should digitally restore the painting. If it's not in the painting, it absolutely should be removed. However, if you look carefully at the photo on the museum's site, the line is there. So unless any of you know for a fact that it's not, I don't think you should be judging the photo as wanting for showing it. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:57, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Thanks, Yann, for confirming I'm not inventing ! Ikan (and the others), we're not talking about the same line. This extra line full of black pixels is definitely not part of the painting. This is just the last lines of pixels (at the bottom, and on the right) which are completely black, as if the frame had been cut and added to the image by the photographer / technician. I already joined a screenshot at 200% above (here again), but to be very explicit I will add this one too at 800% and that other one at 3200% (extracted from the download). Of course, there's no reason to have these lines in the file, it's just corrupting the beautiful painting, and that's only a technical problem. BTW, I don't understand why Peulle and other users notice the technical issue of this painting Commons:Featured_picture_candidates/File:Anton_Francesco_dello_Scheggia_-_The_Seven_Virtues_-_Google_Art_Project.jpg, but not this one. There's also the same black line at the bottom and on the right of this last FPC. Easy to spot : you just need to zoom. But bigger problem : this line is also displayed on the thumbnails, at small size, probably interpreted as an important part of the image by Google Chrome and other browsers. Tested on Firefox + Internet explorer + Safari. So definitely polluting the previews, and of course definitely not welcome on the original image. Also, checking the quality of this photograph, we can notice it was already slightly deteriorated by a jpeg compression. You can check this by zooming very big, for example on Photoshop at 3200%, we see all the squares of 8x8 pixels which characterizes a moderate jpeg compression, inferior than the maximum quality (one more screenshot). When a jpeg picture is recorded with the best quality on a camera, only pixels are visible, not the compression. So claiming the purist argument to avoid to make the correction is not really a valid reasons in my opinion, here. Any clean modification of the file from the original at the maximum quality rate will have absolutely no impact compared to what the picture already suffered from in the past -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:54, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
I see the line and I don't understand why you don't just remove it if it's such a huge problem. To answer your question I'll quote the Guidelines for you: "Given sufficient "wow factor" and mitigating circumstances, a featured picture is permitted to fall short on technical quality." This is a tiny technical problem on an outstanding photo with huge wow factor. My vote stands. --Peulle (talk) 14:26, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Peulle, why I just don't remove it ? Because of the controversy. Christian writes "No sorry I will not edit it, and I tend to disagree that someone do that for so small gain." Also : "To oppose for that is silly. And an incentive to edit jpg files (=loss of quality) for only a few pixels may even be harmful for the project IMO." Don't want to fight. And concerning your quote of the guidelines, that's really an interpretation, here ! -- Basile Morin (talk) 14:44, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
OK, so it's there, but I can't see it at full size unless I look for it specifically, and even then, I see only enough to be able to see where you must be seeing it, not that it's clearly there to my eyes. It's so de minimis that in no way would it affect my vote. However, since it bothers you, I would support its removal if that would cause no damage to the image. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:22, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Sure, the black line is there and is above all on every previews at small size (not only on Commons). But if this and this is normal for a FP for everyone, then let's close the discussion, and just turn the page. I will have learnt something new today about the FP requirements -- Basile Morin (talk) 22:58, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
That's clearer than any other demonstration. I'll temporarily strike my supporting vote, and the edit should be made. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:31, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Volcanic basalt formations in Miles Canyon, near Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg  Oppose The cylindrical projection introduces too much misleading distortion here. I thought this might be some significant meander in the river where it turns through 180° but Google Maps shows this section of the river is straight. -- Colin (talk) 14:40, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment This is a panorama, not a frame, there is no way that you can look at what is shown in the image from this viewpoint at once, you need to move your head from left to right, and the image here shows what you would view when panning your head. My intention was to show the volcanic basalts and for that I needed to stand there where I was, otherwise they would be hidden by the closer side of the river. There is no other type of projection that would work here, you suggest a rectilinear projection? as said, for that I would have had to be futher back and a portion of the basalts would be hidden. I like the way it looks, but if this kind of perspective is not welcome here I see definitely no point in uploading about 50 more such panos from Alaska and Yukon. Poco2 16:33, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
  • I know it is difficult to represent a wide scope of view in a 2D frame. We've all had plenty discussion about projections, particularly with Diliff's cathedrals. I know you can't do this wide angle in rectilinear. We do now have nominations with 360° projections that can use a special viewer, and I think for some subjects that's a really immersive way of looking at a view. They way it looks here is too much like one of these -- someone unfamiliar with the scene/location would be mislead. Whereas some of our more extreme projections are obviously distorted (curved buildings, etc) so the viewer isn't fooled (e.g. File:King's Cross Western Concourse - central position - 2012-05-02.75.jpg). Two other examples of mine are File:St Matthew's Church - Paisley - Exterior - SouthEast.jpg -- a regular projection -- and File:St Matthew's Church - Paisley - Exterior - South Panorama.jpg -- a cylindrical projection that I think is pretty awful. The cylindrical projection only shows a very little more of the subject but is unacceptably distorted. The closer you are to the subject (e.g. the river or the road) the worse the distortion. -- Colin (talk) 17:30, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
  • I understand that the viewer could get it wrong, but I still don't see it as a big problem. Falling lines, fish eyes, extreme perspectives, they all may decieve the viewer, but that's iMHO not a reason to exclude them. This FP of mine is exactly the same view (road instead of river), became FP 2 weeks ago and is IMO not as interesting as this one. Poco2 23:12, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Well perhaps most viewers of that other photo thought you were standing at a crossroads, or perhaps didn't care that some random piece of road in a desert was distorted. Here you have taken a photo of a "wow" bend in the river that should attract photographers like flies, except it isn't. It's an illusion. Many of the extremely wide panoramas we have are taken on mountain tops, where most of the subject is distant. For example: File:Panoramic view north from Ben Lomond.jpg. These photos have the effect of taking around 180° and compressing it to around 90°. If the close features are minor and insignificant, like the Ben Lomond photo, then it isn't so disturbing. But when the distorted features are actually the subject, then there's a problem. -- Colin (talk) 08:03, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Am I reading this right? You only want to upload photos here on Commons if they can become FPs? Or you only see FPs as useful to the project? Both sounds really bad to my ears. --Cart (talk) 16:54, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
  • I've become the most productive user in the project in terms of quality and fetured content, that's not just by chance like this. I've spent a great deal of time and money to get there. So, I don't think that anybody here can demand that I upload anything more. The other way around, I think that I've the liberty to decide what I upload and what I don't and I expect other users to respect that. Poco2 23:12, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Ok, I stand corrected. --Cart (talk) 08:18, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment I normally don't have any problems with these distorted 180 deg panoramas, but for some reason this much bending of a straight river bothers me a bit. That is why I added the location to the file, so that each viewer could see it and form their own opinion. I won't go as far as to oppose this, since this might just be me being square. --Cart (talk) 15:42, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment - I will support this nomination if you state in the file description by about how many degrees you've bent the straight river in this projection. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:40, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
    • My guess, since there is riverbank on each side, is around 180° made to look like 90°. -- Colin (talk) 08:03, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
Reasonable, but it's important for the file description to say. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:05, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
Ikan: ✓  Done Poco2 08:14, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg  Support . Perhaps you should say the actual appearance of the riverbank is straight, but maybe the number of degrees by itself are clear enough for most readers. To me, the number of degrees of the panorama is not the same as the number of degrees that the river is bent, but maybe I'm just confused. I do like the photo, though, and I think this kind of distortion is legitimate when it's clearly described. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:18, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Ikan: I added an additional note to make that more clear. Poco2 08:32, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Excellent note, thank you. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:35, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg  Support I think it's pretty clear from looking at it that it's a panoramic; we have already promoted plenty that showed obviously straight roads bent this way. To me this may have been the only way to show the whole canyon. I could wish for a softer highlight on the cloud above the bridge, maybe, but I'm OK with it as is.
