Políticas e normas sobre candidatas a imaxes destacadas[edit]

Regras xerais[edit]

  1. After the end of the voting period the result will be determined on day 15 after nomination (shown in the time-table below). So the voting period is two weeks (plus the hours until the end of day 14). Votes added on day 15 or after are not counted.
  2. Nominations by anonymous contributors are welcome
  3. Contributions to discussion by anonymous contributors are welcome
  4. Votes by anonymous contributors aren't counted
  5. Nominations do not count as votes. Support must be explicitly stated.
  6. Nominators can withdraw their nominated pictures at any time. This is done by simply writing "I withdraw my nomination".
  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. This is not simply a depository for Wikipedia images, so images should not be judged here on their suitability for that project.
  8. Pictures can be taken from the list if they have no support (not counting the nominator's) on day number 7 (day of nomination + 7).

Featured picture delisting candidates[edit]

Over time, featured picture standards change. It may be decided that for some pictures which were formerly "good enough", this is no longer the case. This is for listing an image which you believe no longer deserves to be a featured picture. These require 2/3 majority (and a minimum of 5 votes) agreeing to delist from featured pictures. If there is not 2/3 agreeing to delist it, it stays as a featured picture. For these, vote {{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep (it deserves to be a featured picture) or {{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist (it doesn't deserve to be a featured picture). Please provide a link to the original FP nomination (it will appear under "Links" on the image description page). Otherwise the same rules as above apply. Please use this link to add a new removal candidate.

Guidelines for nominators[edit]

Below you can find some informal rules picture should match:

  • Resolution - graphics located on Commons may be used not only for viewing them on a screen. They may be also used for printing or for viewing on very high resolution monitors. We can't predict what devices would be used in the future neither, so it is important that pictures being nominated have a resolution as high as possible. A resolution of at least 2 million pixel (e.g. 2000 x 1000) seems reasonable right now.
  • Focus - every important object on the picture should be sharp.
  • Foreground and background - foreground and background objects may be pretty distracting. You should check if something in front of the subject doesn't hide some important elements and if something in background doesn't spoil the composition (for example if the streetlight doesn't "stand" on someone's head).
  • General quality - pictures being nominated should have good technical quality.
  • Value - our main goal is to feature most valuable pictures from all others. Pictures should be in some way special, so please be aware that:
    • almost all sunsets are pretty, and most of such pictures are not different in the essence from others,
    • nightshots are pretty but normally more details can be shown on pictures taken at daytime,
    • beautiful does not always mean valuable.

Not every rule has to be matched, e.g. a picture may have a low resolution, because higher resolution photos cannot be taken (subject may be dead), or the event is not going to occur again.

Guidelines for Evaluating Photographs[edit]

There are several criteria for evaluating images.

On the technical side, we have exposure, composition, movement control and depth of field.

Exposure refers to the shutter diaphragm combination that renders an image with a tonal curve that ideally is able to represent in acceptable detail shadows and highlights within the image. This is called latitude. Images can be on the low side of the tonal curve (low range), the middle (middle range) or high side (upper range). Digital cameras (or images) have a narrower latitude than film. Lack of shadow detail is not necessarily a negative characteristic. In fact, it can be part of the desired effect. Burned highlights in large areas are a distracting element.

Composition refers to the arrangement of the elements within the image. The “Rule of Thirds” is a good guideline for composition and is an inheritance from the painting school. The idea is to divide the image with two imaginary horizontal and two vertical lines, thus dividing the image into thirds horizontally and vertically. Centering the subject is almost always considered a negative practice. Subjects of interest are placed in one of the “interest points”, where horizontal and vertical lines intersect (4 interest points are created). Horizons are never places in the middle, for they “cut” the image in half. They are placed either in the upper or lower horizontal line. Main idea here is NOT to center subject.

Movement control refers to the manner in which motion is represented in the image. Motion can be frozen or blurred. Neither one is better over the other. It is the intention of representation. Movement is relative within the objects of the image. For example, photographing a race car that appears frozen in relation to the background does not give us a sense of speed or motion, so technique dictates to represent the car in a frozen manner but with a blurred background, thus creating the sense of motion, this is called "panning". On the other hand, representing a basketball player in a high jump frozen in relation to everything else, due to the “unnatural” nature of the pose would be a good photograph.

Depth of field (DOF) refers to the area in focus in front of and beyond main subject. Depth of field is chosen according to the specific needs of every picture. Large or small DOF can either way add or substract to the quality of the image. Low depth of field can be used to bring attention to the main subject, separating it from the general environment. High depth of field can be used to emphasize space. Short focal length lenses (wide angles) yield large DOF, and viceversa, long focal lenses (telephotos) have shallow DOF. Small apertures yield large DOF and conversely, large apertures yield shallow DOF.

On the graphic elements we have shape, volume, color, texture, perspective, balance, proportion, etc.

Shape refers to the contour of the main subjects.

Volume refers to the three dimensional quality of the object. This is accomplished using side light. Contrary to general belief, front lighting is not the best light. It tends to flatten subject. Best light of day is early morning or late afternoon.

Color is important. Over saturated colours are not good.

Texture refers to the quality of the surface of the subject. It is enhanced by side lighting… it is the “feel” to the touch….

Perspective refers to the “angle” accompanied by lines that disappear into a vanishing point that may or may not be inside the image.

Balance refers to the arrangement of subjects within the image that can either give equal weight or appear to be heavier on one side.

Proportion refers to the relation of size of objects in picture. Generally, we tend to represent small objects small in relation to others, but a good technique is to represent small objects large contrary to natural size relationship. For example, a small flower is given preponderance over a large mountain…. This is called inversion of scales.

Not all elements must be present. Some photographs can be judged on individual characteristics, that is, an image can be about color or texture, or color AND texture, etc.

Symbolic meaning or relevance…. Well, this is where opinion wars start…. A bad picture of a very difficult subject is a better picture than a good picture of an ordinary subject. A good picture of a difficult subject is an extraordinary photograph.

Images can be culturally biased by the photograher and/or the observer. The meaning of the image should be judged according to the cultural context of the image, not by the cultural context of the observer. An image “speaks” to people, and it has the capacity to evoke emotion such as tenderness, rage, rejection, hapiness, sadness, etc. Good photographs are not limited to evoking pleasant sensations….

Above all, Be polite[edit]

Please don't forget that the image you are judging is somebody's work. Avoid using phrases like "it looks terrible" and "I hate it". If you must oppose, please do so with consideration. Also remember that your command of English might not be the same as someone elses. Choose your words with care.

Happy judging… and remember.... all rules can be broken

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is the church of the Holy Apostles (Ναός Αγίων Αποστόλων Σολάκη), built in year 1000 in the ancient Agora, as seen from the Acropolis. It is situated partly over the Nymphaïon (2nd c.C.E.). The original floor-plan of the church was that of a greek cross, with apses on the four sides, and a narthex on the west-side. Four columns support the dome. The altar and the floor are of marble. The disposition of some tiles on the outer walls show "cubic" decorative patterns of eastern origin. Four building phases are known, from the repairs and reconstructions over the years. Among all the mediaeval monuments known to have existed in the Ancient Agora, it is the only one preserved. It was restored to its original form in 1954-1957. Athens, Greece.-- Jebulon (talk) 15:39, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

But the left is cropped (with harms its EV and would only be excusable if part of the bridge was hidden from this viewpoint) and sharpness is quite weak especially off-centre. Compare File:Southwark Bridge, from Millennium Bridge, Aug 2010.jpg which is the result of stitching and is thus much much sharper. It also handles the shadow detail better, and is a wider view that captures the whole bridge. Btw, there's potential here for a great night photo -- Colin (talk) 14:25, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
    • To be honest, I find some of the bridges of London a bit boring, particularly during the day. Some of them are more impressive at night, some of them have nice detailing that isn't very apparent from a distance. Some of them just don't have nice viewpoints. I think Southwark Bridge is one of them that doesn't stand out enough for me during the day. You're right that the linked image is significantly better in sharpness and composition and it is well lit at night. Diliff (talk) 14:48, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. It's not sharp enough and the view isn't interesting enough for me.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Because this image shows the complete epitaph, whereas the already featured picture only unfolds a cut-out with the central relief stone of Ulrich II. von Ernau. So you folks might get an impression of the whole work. If a specific description might be of a common interest, I can hand it in later at request. By the way, this is one of the finest Renaissance relief works in Carinthia, created by the Italian sculptor Martin Pacobello. Thus according to my opinion it is important enough to be nominated as a whole as well. --Johann Jaritz (talk) 14:23, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Annapolis, MD, Acton Cove: Yachts and St. Mary's Church
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Hmm, ok. What I like about the picture is the dominance of blue sky and water with the small green stripe of land inbetween - and the (complimentary) red building complex. There's basically just three dominant colors, four if you count the spotlike white clouds, yachts, and buoys. So the image is rather reduced and, due to its panoramic layout, also wide and opened up. But maybe it just doesn't work... --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 12:14, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I'm not sure about this one. My first reaction was to like its restful quality, which reminds me of Johann's photos of Pörtschach, but the cutoff of the trees on the right, where they're at full height and density, is bugging me because it feels like it cuts off the movement of my eyes around the picture frame. I'm wondering what this photo would look like if you had just the amount of tree necessary to show the buildings, even while cutting off part of the graveyard. I'm not positive I'd like that better, but I might. I might or might not support this photo, anyway, but right now, I'm undecided; although I like it, I may like it as a QI rather than a FP. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:27, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Hello Jebulon and all. Thank you for your recommendation. I will follow it in case this set will not collect the appropriate votes. This is the first set that I nominate, so I was not sure about the exact definition of "set". My understating is that a set has to be a group of similar images. These images are not similar in terms of aesthetics. However, all of them represent the same thing. They are produced for the same purpose and in fact they are similar in terms of content: These Christian maps represent the effort of Christian theology to describe "heaven" or "hell" for its believers. So, that is why I thought to nominate them as a group. But I understand your point. I was trying to find a page about the definition of the "Set" and examples, but I could not find any. So, I thought just to nominate and see if I understood the right thing. Thanxs EVDiam (talk) 18:32, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As for me, a set should be complete in some way, and maybe chronologicaly classified, or something. But it is just an opinion, and there are no specific rules. I understand very well the purpose, but is the set "close" ? Well... difficult. Nice pictures anyway.--Jebulon (talk) 19:51, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is the church of the Holy Apostles (Ναός Αγίων Αποστόλων Σολάκη), built in year 1000 in the ancient Agora, as seen from the Acropolis. It is situated partly over the Nymphaïon (2nd c.C.E.). The original floor-plan of the church was that of a greek cross, with apses on the four sides, and a narthex on the west-side. Four columns support the dome. The altar and the floor are of marble. The disposition of some tiles on the outer walls show "cubic" decorative patterns of eastern origin. Four building phases are known, from the repairs and reconstructions over the years. Among all the mediaeval monuments known to have existed in the Ancient Agora, it is the only one preserved.

Cologne, Germany: Extractor machine for heat exchanger bundles

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is another photo with a complex form that I enjoy looking at, and like the photo of the factory that we all liked, the photographer has taken a subject that most people wouldn't find beautiful, and by taking it as seriously as a conventionally beautiful motif, has captured a really interesting scene. I would also say that this photo is really only partly about the extractor machine: That and the closer man's back are the most present because they're in the foreground, but to me, what really makes this a special photo is the series of interesting shapes created by the pipes, beams and horizontal planes of different construction in the middleground and background, and the way they work formally with the foreground. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:15, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The standard for London Bridges is pretty high. I'm surprised Diliff hasn't done this one. The sky and the crossing train are bonuses. But the left is cropped (with harms its EV and would only be excusable if part of the bridge was hidden from this viewpoint) and sharpness is quite weak especially off-centre. Compare File:Southwark Bridge, from Millennium Bridge, Aug 2010.jpg which is the result of stitching and is thus much much sharper. It also handles the shadow detail better, and is a wider view that captures the whole bridge. Btw, there's potential here for a great night photo -- Colin (talk) 14:25, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
    • To be honest, I find some of the bridges of London a bit boring, particularly during the day. Some of them are more impressive at night, some of them have nice detailing that isn't very apparent from a distance. Some of them just don't have nice viewpoints. I think Southwark Bridge is one of them that doesn't stand out enough for me during the day. You're right that the linked image is significantly better in sharpness and composition and it is well lit at night. Diliff (talk) 14:48, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. It's not sharp enough and the view isn't interesting enough for me. Also doesn't show the termination of each end of the bride which I think is important for compositional reasons, and I don't think London's bridges are really at their most aesthetic at low tide.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • I wouldn't mind a tighter crop, but I do like the fact that I can clearly recognize the background! It looks fine at full-page size and blurred but still quite understandable at full size. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:27, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose nice quality photo, but the distracting background and missing feet make it fall short of FP for me. Charles (talk) 15:53, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Missing feets might be an issue, but the pleasant color-play of the wooden background and the bird's blue-brown feathers is undeniable. -- Pofka (talk) 12:05, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Given that there is already a Featured picture of the same motif in slightly different light, though without the inscriptions above and below or a part of the floor showing, please explain why this picture is different enough to justify also being featured. Because of the importance of the inscriptions or something else? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:43, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Because this image shows the complete epitaph, whereas the already featured picture only unfolds a cut-out with the central relief stone of Ulrich II. von Ernau. So you folks might get an impression of the whole work. If a specific description might be of a common interest, I can hand it in later at request. By the way, this is one of the finest Renaissance relief works in Carinthia, created by the Italian sculptor Martin Pacobello. Thus according to my opinion it is important enough to be nominated as a whole as well. --Johann Jaritz (talk) 14:23, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Annapolis, MD, Acton Cove: Yachts and St. Mary's Church
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Hmm, ok. What I like about the picture is the dominance of blue sky and water with the small green stripe of land inbetween - and the (complimentary) red building complex. There's basically just three dominant colors, four if you count the spotlike white clouds, yachts, and buoys. So the image is rather reduced and, due to its panoramic layout, also wide and opened up. But maybe it just doesn't work... --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 12:14, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I'm not sure about this one. My first reaction was to like its restful quality, which reminds me of Johann's photos of Pörtschach, but the cutoff of the trees on the right, where they're at full height and density, is bugging me because it feels like it cuts off the movement of my eyes around the picture frame. I'm wondering what this photo would look like if you had just the amount of tree necessary to show the buildings, even while cutting off part of the graveyard. I'm not positive I'd like that better, but I might. I might or might not support this photo, anyway, but right now, I'm undecided; although I like it, I may like it as a QI rather than a FP. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:27, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Weak oppose per Pofka. Even so, that might not have been issue but for the clipping in places—the shadow of the trees, for one, and the window trim on tbe other end. Perhaps a little overzealous in the processing? Daniel Case (talk) 22:43, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
