Street light next to a birch
  • At least to me this is a play of pairs: light and shadow, natural (birch) and manmade (lamp), red and green, vertical and horizontal lines. That's my artsy fartsy thought about this. ;) I also like the way the lamp lights up the very new leaves of the birch in a gradual way. The compo is more artistic/photographic than encyclopedic. We have had night/trees/street lamp compos and FPCs here before, but they fell short in the technical quality. This is not a very easy photo to take with the light going from total darkness to bright light. (Btw, it is a one-shot photo, no HDR.) It also needs to be perfectly still and no wind when you do these long exposure shots, or the leaves will get blurry. --Cart (talk) 18:18, 23 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)
  • I prefer this picture than the other one -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:24, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

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)

  • Symbol support vote.svg  Support I like how the leaves fill the frame in this one. The light is good filtering through the leaves and outlining the branches and hairs. -- Colin (talk) 20:37, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg  Comment - I think the other photo has a much better composition, with the bright leaves extending diagonally from the upper right to the lower left. 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)
