  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info First edition vocal score, and a rather attractive illustration compared to some. The delicacy of the lithograph shows up rather strongly in the attractive background; there is a lot of gradient of tone here, which - as each gradient in tone requires the stone have another preparation with wax and wash of acid - indicates a lot of care put into it. Compare, for example, the first edition Rigoletto, which, while still pretty good, has basically about three or four shades of grey at its disposal, at an estimate; this clearly has far more. It also helps this one is bigger, giving a lot more detail. Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:46, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Wide margins are meant to balance the text at the bottom (with the added advantage that people wanting to reuse it can easily crop it into an appropriate aspect ratio for their reuse: It's far easier to remove paper than add paper.)

Notre Dame de France Church
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Interiors/Religious buildings
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Diliff - uploaded by Diliff - nominated by Diliff. This is an interesting church in London for a few reasons. Known originally as Burford's Panorama, it was originally built in the early 1800s as a local tourist attraction using cast iron construction. It was converted into a church by the Marist Fathers in the mid 1800s to support the growing French community in London. In the Second World War, it was heavily damaged and was repaired and redecorated in the 1950s by eminent French artists, hence the modernist interior design. -- Diliff (talk) 09:00, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

  • It isn't really country-specific. Benh is right, it does mean "any person" in that context, generally and can easily be substituted for "you" (which in that context doesn't mean you specifically, it means people in general) and mean the same thing. See here, specifically definitions 19 to 21. I can see how it's confusing for non-native English speakers though. As you can see, the word has a lot of different definitions in different contexts.

    • As a courtesy, can you explain your reasoning a bit more thoroughly? The first oppose was slightly vague and all subsequent opposes have directly referenced it with 'as per x'. You do realise that the room is not rectangular, right? It's curved. I just want to make sure that this 'extreme distortion' that people seem to be seeing isn't actually due to a misunderstanding of the geometry of the room. Diliff (talk) 23:19, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

    • Cmon, the ball is never in focus in this kind of tennis photography. We're talking about sports photography taken at 350mm focal length and a relatively wide aperture to get a fast shutter speed. You don't get unlimited depth of field. According to a depth of field calculator, there is about 20cm DoF in total. The ball cannot be in focus at the same time as the player unless they're in the middle of hitting it. Framing is perhaps a legitimate point, but I chose it to be tight to get an action portrait. It's not supposed to be a full body photo. I've uploaded a new image with a slightly wider framing anyway.

In other words, both of the reasons that Mile gave were either refuted or corrected. It would be nice if you could elaborate on your oppose reasons taking this into consideration.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The wildcat protects itself with two strategies: camouflage her body and defending their territory. The camouflage is done by brown color and vertical stripes on their fur and her face and by hiding behind plants and shrubs. To defend their territory, the wildcat is guarding the lowest access to their territory. In their area there is a big tree. The fur of the wildcat has the same color and the same pattern as the bark of the tree. The wildcat lives on that tree, there it is protected through the camouflage of the coat. Daniel and Livio, do you understand now why the camouflage of the wildcat must be shown by their hiding behind plants in the picture? --Michael Gäbler (talk) 13:40, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

First, there's a lot more green than brown in the image. And as a result I can still see the cat very easily. If the point of the image is to depict how the cat's coloring helps it conceal itself, it's not communicating that very well. And second, if that's the point of the image, then you're arguing more for it as a valued image, not an FP, since depicting its ability to camouflage itself and taking a picture with a level of "wow" adequate to FP standards here seem to be mutually exclusive if this is the best way of doing the former.

✓ Done There was a slight pincushion distortion which is now corrected. For the verticals: I used the cables of the lamps and I was assuming homogenous gravity in the church. For the resolution: As usual I uploaded the full resolution of my camera. More is not available and I think, that ISO 125 is good enough for the situation. I shot on available light and refused the offer of Sister Dorothea to switch on the lights. There are some coloured lights visible where I have to mention, that it is not a chromatic aberration but the filtered light of the stained glass. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 13:04, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Let me take the opportunity to add some information: The church is part of the augustinian monastery in Essen. The stained glass windows show artwork of Johan Thorn Prikker which is considered to be one of the most important glass artists of 20th century. Influenced by impressionism, he pushed stained glass art from figural to ornamental. The windows in the monastery are his last work. From him is the word "Wie herrlich muss es sein, mit der Sonne selbst malen zu können" (How splendid it must be, to paint with the sun herself). Prikker had a deadly desease and it is believed, that the windows, made partly under horrible pains, depict "the antagonism of powers, the path from darkness and death to light and ressurection. The effects of the light is capturing the whole room into this movement; symbol of the big, eternal community of all released people in god." --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 04:41, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Weak oppose I liked the composition and looked at the image. Thought to myself "Nice image, but should have been shot from a tripod to avoid the high ISO". Then I looked at the exif and was in for a shock. It's a bit stunning how poor even the best Canons are at shadow recovery, but to mitigate this, HDR should have been used (the windows are also blown). The image has a lot of illustrative value for articles, but with respect to the quality, I do not think that it can really be among the best church interiors we have. I realize that perhaps I'm being a bit harsh, but the great view could be executed much better imho. --DXR (talk) 08:47, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting info.svg Info It was shot from tripod with mirror lock and remote control. Sure, HDR might have ended up in a better result, but I am not the big friend of HDR, that's why you rarely find a HDR among my photos. I am not sure, if everyone can imagine the light situation: It is a dim light in the church and all light is filtered through coloured glas. The very intense coloured light is also outshining the frames of the windows. It looks like CA, but it is not. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 10:17, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Well, I understand that the term HDR has been spoiled for many by those who use it to make tasteless/creative (pick your flavor) unrealistic adjustments that render images useless for wiki. But the logic behind the concept is sound and shadow noise and blown windows can be easily reduced or avoided using it, and with sensible processing the results won't look fake or bad. This is especially valid for cameras with sub-par dynamic range at low ISOs. I understand people who dislike HDR, but inside the church, it very often becomes an essential tool. --DXR (talk) 10:50, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I do not condemn HDR in general but sometimes, I am a little bit oldschool and in my opinion, it is often possible to get a reasonable result with a single shot. Well, there are prospects for another shooting in the monastery during midday sun (the colours are different then) and I will remember to try a HDR from same position. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 10:59, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I think HDR is usually required to get stained-glass in range. Here it could be better, it isn't too bad IMO, and I've seen too many HDR stained glass where the "Ow! Ow! My eyes hurt" bright white is rendered merely paper white. -- Colin (talk) 12:19, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I agree, the term 'HDR' is too often associated with really bad over-processed tone mapping that makes everything look muddy and weird, but it doesn't have to be that way - the result depends entirely on how strongly it is applied, the quality of the source image and what software is used to do it. To simply associate HDR so negatively is a bit like saying that a terrible photo taken with an expensive top of the line camera must mean the camera is terrible. And although the technical quality of this image is 'okay', it could have been much better. The noise levels of the shadows could have been as you would normally expect of ISO 100. Consider this recent image of mine. The exterior light wasn't as strong, but the interior was much darker so the contrast between highlights and shadows is likely to be similar. It was shot at ISO 320 which would normally result in quite a lot of shadow noise, particularly if pushed a lot. But because I used HDR with a 'slightly overexposed for shadows' bracket shot, I was able to get an image without any noise in any of the shadow areas. That simply wouldn't be possible with a single image, particularly with the low dynamic range of the Canon sensors. Diliff (talk) 18:38, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support (weak) While I agree with DXR that it could be much better, I don't find the noise is that dramatic, and it doesn't look like to come from shadow recovery (doing so on Canons usually gives you non aesthetic banding. See full size image). From a technical point of view, it's certainly at least as good -I'd say better- as many church interior which have been recently promoted and the lighting is just too good to miss. - Benh (talk) 10:02, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

No, a dirty lens would create low contrast maybe (but even then, not usually noticeable), but not focus problems. At f/8, I don't think it is because of a low DoF either. Usually poor focus on one side of the frame is because there is a problem with the lens, perhaps a lens element no aligned correctly. Have you seen this problem with any other photos before?

In this case, portion in focus is way to small to represent this flower. I am sure it can be done much better. Positioning can be solved with underlaying layers, go to stacking, select all layers, auto-align first, then do auto-blend. This can solve some, but often manual blending is necessary. --Mile (talk) 09:51, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Just curious, why is the quality only so-so? It's a very expensive 36 megapixel camera and lens on a tripod. To my eyes it looks very sharp without noise. The only technical defect I see is that the trees, swaying in the wind, get a bit blurred -- a trade off between car trails and noiseless ISO 100 versus sharp trees. And actually I did some post processing (it's an HDR photo from three exposures so that the roofs of the buildings aren't totally black and so that the lights aren't blown out), but I'm glad people don't notice it. Thanks! dllu (t,c) 21:59, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Sharpness is OK, motion blurr of traffic, trees isn't problem (not extensive). But if you check the sky there is posterization and banding with some quite big smudge (posterization) on the left. Congrats on camera. --Mile (talk) 07:21, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • barely Symbol support vote.svg Support OK from a lighting point of view. But I wish we have more studio like photographs, with the background being an actual one, so we keep the shadow, instead of having to remove it. Would also be pretty interesting to have it side by side with the same subject from the McDo marketing division ;) - Benh (talk) 19:17, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

The launch of Apollo 11 on 16 July 1969. "At 9:32 a.m. EDT, the swing arms move away and a plume of flame signals the liftoff of the Apollo 11 Saturn V space vehicle and astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr. from Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39A."

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I like the flames, I think it shows the danger of space flight, like a malfunction could occur. But you can also see that some preparation went in before takeoff to make this a safe trip. Rainbow unicorn (talk) 19:19, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Quite an interesting photo of great historical significance. Although the technical quality is poor by today's standards, the FPC guidelines say something about a bad photo of a good subject is preferable to a good photo of a mundane subject. dllu (t,c) 11:12, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
