  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Hello B.navez! According to the book "Flaggen und Wappen der Welt" (Flags and Coats of Arms of the World, Gütersloh, Bertelsmann, 1992, p. 60) the arms along with the new flag (also on Commons) were granted on August 2, 1990 by the British Government in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the territory's establishment (see also the description of the arms at English Wikipedia). The arms were also printed on an UK 24pc stamp issued in 1990 (see [1] and [2]). Although the US Army leased the island of Diego Garcia as a military base, the territory remains in British possession (see here).
    • Pictogram voting info.svg InfoOk, thanks for official information. It is a good drawing but apart the fact the territory is disputed, is a page of shame for UK and so featuring could be considered as not NPOV, the turtles are not credible. The left one is clearly a Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) but the right one looks like a terrestrial tortoise with marine members. Information about stamps say it should be Caretta caretta but I doubt (not known nesting there) and I'd rather think it intends to be a Green Turtle(Chelonia mydas) because of the green color and being common in this area. The original coat of arms was so badly drawn it was of no importance, but with a good drawing, accuracy of the representation makes it paradoxically wronger.--B.navez 17:16, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting info.svg InfoGood to know, but the turtles you see are just the ones depicted in the book cited above. I stuck closely to the drawing in this book because it is based on official documents and I myself am not too much into zoology. --Demidow, 19:34, 23 March 2008 (CET)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Nice map, this is a lot better than your previous nominations. I don't usually vote on maps but here are a couple of suggestions: (i) The symbol used for the scales of latitude and longitude, as well as for the graphic scale, is too heavy. Try something more discrete; (ii) The text fonts used for the geographic coordinates and for labelling the grid should be different in size and colour; (iii) There is little elevation information in the map, those area symbols are mainly decorative. Try to use denser hypsometric classes and/or elevation contours (not labeled this way); (iv) The map projection should be identified; (v) The symbol used to depict the main road is too heavy, try something more discrete; (vi) For this scale, much more topographic information should be provided: hydrography (rivers), natural land cover, ... -- Alvesgaspar 23:11, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose --Nice work but (i) there is a little error for the South 63°55´ longitude label (it is written 63°00´) ; (ii) the filling motive for LA ASUNCIÓN´s area is bugging on the full view ; (iii) at the level of Pta. Sabaneta (North of Juan Griego) is indicated a lake where there is a hill about 188 m high ; (iv) Isla los Frailes is misplaced (centre of the island at about 63°44'W) ; (v) at Isla los Frailes is showed one island where there are at least three other much bigger than other islets represented on the map ; (vi) the general shape of the elevation is correct but well much simplified in comparison to the coastlines ; (vii) the whole text has been transformed in paths which makes the file weight heavier and complicates the translation. (viii) In the description page, it is indicated that the map was drawn wandering around with a GPS. If I can imagine that this device was used for the roads, I hardly believe it was the case for the coastlines as well as the topography for which thousands and thousands of waypoints would have been necessary in order to draw the map the way it is, so I would like to have more details about the sources used.

Thanks, but the still ~8 km misplaced island and the missing ones makes that imo the map should be first corrected before being featured. Btw, Alvesgaspar also made very meaningful remarks. Sting 22:18, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
I have used translating but I am not able to understand what tries to be --libertad0 ॐ 16:00, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
In your map, Isla los Frailes is approximately placed at 63° 49' W while it should be 5' eastwards, at 63° 44' W. This makes a difference of about 8 km and places the island West of Punta Ballena instead of East where it is in fact. Zoom in this area with NASA World Wind (not Google Earth) and you will also see there are four other islands missing North of Isla los Frailes. Sting 19:23, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
I think that it could already be solved. Excuseme, would you Be able to revise it? --libertad0 ॐ 15:45, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - This time, and after the comments by Sting, I have to make an exception and strongly oppose the promotion. The main purpose of any map is to represent geographic information as accurately as possible; it is not enough to be beautiful or to have a "professional look". A map should be a tool we could trust. In this case, we have no guarantee of quality. On the contrary, the data sources are not identified and some gross mistakes were found by Sting. More latin american votes will not make it a better map. -- Alvesgaspar 00:04, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Image:Nilas Sea Ice1.jpg[edit]

Nilas sea ice

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Nilas Sea Ice sea ice w:Buffin Bay w:Arctic.
    Have you ever wondered how an ocean gets frozen? Here's the answer:
    In calm water, the first sea ice to form on the surface is a skim of separate crystals which initially are in the form of tiny discs, floating flat on the surface and of diameter less than 2-3 mm. Each disc has its c-axis vertical and grows outwards laterally. At a certain point such a disc shape becomes unstable, and the growing isolated crystals take on a hexagonal, stellar form, with long fragile arms stretching out over the surface. These crystals also have their c-axis vertical. The dendritic arms are very fragile, and soon break off, leaving a mixture of discs and arm fragments. With any kind of turbulence in the water, these fragments break up further into random-shaped small crystals which form a suspension of increasing density in the surface water, an ice type called frazil or grease ice. In quiet conditions the frazil crystals soon freeze together to form a continuous thin sheet of young ice; in its early stages, when it is still transparent, it is called nilas. When only a few centimetres thick this is transparent (dark nilas) but as the ice grows thicker the nilas takes on a grey and finally a white appearance. The image was taken from an w:icebreaker.

  • The subject of the image is Nilas sea ice, and you are right, it is amazing! Nilas sea ice is very, very rarely photographed (I could not find any image on Flikr). The side of icebreaker was added to the image in order to compare the ice to the people and a ship. Other angle was all, but impossible. May I please ask you, if you'd rather prefer an image with only ice and no ship like for example this one Nilas sea ice 3.jpg? Thanks.--Mbz1 00:59, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Especially considering that we had an almost similar concurrent "iceberg with a hole" nominations on-going in here in October 2007. However, only at that time I nominated a slightly different view of a badly edited image. I think the view presented here is better and more striking, and this time, I have not tried to "improve" the image in any postprocessing except for a crop and a slight downsamling to remove some noise.

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Two reviewers have objections concerning "expose" (exposure?). I am curious to hear more details what this is about? The histogram is near perfect, there are objectively no over-exposed areas. Is it something about the direction of the light? As I see it the lightning is pretty good as it emphasizes details of the freshly exposed surfaces where ice has calved off the iceberg. Am I overlooking something? Or are some monitors not calibrated? -- Slaunger 17:42, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
No over-exposed areas? Perfect? I think where there is light the photo is too bright, where is shadow (much on iceberg) is too dark. --Beyond silence 20:02, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support On my screen, the balance between light and dark is perfect: the whites are bright but not overexposed, and the shadows are certainly not too dark. I suppose people see images in a different way, because their screens are not calibrated in the same way. I support this nice picture, although the sharpness of the lower right part is not really excellent. -- MJJR 20:42, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't quite understand this one. At f6.3 and at that distance the whole image should be sharp, but in fact only the left-hand edge is. As you move across to the right the details get more and more blurred. --MichaelMaggs 08:51, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
    I think it is because in reality the two sides of the iceberg are at quite different distances (although it appears to be taken from the side). I guess the auto-focus has caugth the left hand side of the iceberg leading to the observation you have. I had to photograph it quickly as a "target of oppertunity", and I had no control of the ship as it was on an official assignment (not a tourist trip). Thus, the nominated image and this image differ by one minut (the resolution) in their EXIFs, meaning I had no second chances to check the sharpess of the shots. In addition, I do not have a DSLR. Although I am really amazed by the capability of my small compact camera, the technical quality will not be on par with most FPCs. I am not trying to excuse sub-optimal technical quality. I would just like to explain the circumstances. It is up to the individual reviewer to consider if the rarity of the subject and the circumstances mitigates these observations, and I respect your stance. -- Slaunger 09:39, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
    To me it looks as if you have a bit of dirt or maybe a water drop on the right side of your lense. With the small lenses of a compact camera this can have a big effect on the photo. You should check your lense. The coastline behind the iceberg should have the same sharpness but it hasn't. I also had that problem with my compact Canon...and a lense cleaning resulted in an impressive improvement of the photo quality :) --AngMoKio 08:55, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
    Thank you for this advice AngMoKio. That may be another root cause. I know this is really off-topic, but how did you clean the lens? -- Slaunger 11:11, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
    well a difficult topic. Depends a bit what kind of dirt you have. I had a part of a finger print on the lense and removed it with a little bit of warm water and a paper towel. Important is that you dont press and rub hard...otherwise you can scratch the lense. There should be special cleaning kits available. The way i did it was for sure not the best. Cleaning my lenses and the sensor is sth i postpone all the time, because i am scared of it :) --AngMoKio 20:53, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
    Thank you for the explanation. It seems simpler than I had feared. -- Slaunger 21:03, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
    Still be very careful! --AngMoKio 21:06, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Two reviewers have objections concerning "expose" (exposure?). I am curious to hear more details what this is about? The histogram is near perfect, there are objectively no over-exposed areas. Is it something about the direction of the light? As I see it the lightning is pretty good as it emphasizes details of the freshly exposed surfaces where ice has calved off the iceberg. Am I overlooking something? Or are some monitors not calibrated? -- Slaunger 17:42, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
No over-exposed areas? Perfect? I think where there is light the photo is too bright, where is shadow (much on iceberg) is too dark. --Beyond silence 20:02, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support On my screen, the balance between light and dark is perfect: the whites are bright but not overexposed, and the shadows are certainly not too dark. I suppose people see images in a different way, because their screens are not calibrated in the same way. I support this nice picture, although the sharpness of the lower right part is not really excellent. -- MJJR 20:42, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't quite understand this one. At f6.3 and at that distance the whole image should be sharp, but in fact only the left-hand edge is. As you move across to the right the details get more and more blurred. --MichaelMaggs 08:51, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
    I think it is because in reality the two sides of the iceberg are at quite different distances (although it appears to be taken from the side). I guess the auto-focus has caugth the left hand side of the iceberg leading to the observation you have. I had to photograph it quickly as a "target of oppertunity", and I had no control of the ship as it was on an official assignment (not a tourist trip). Thus, the nominated image and this image differ by one minut (the resolution) in their EXIFs, meaning I had no second chances to check the sharpess of the shots. In addition, I do not have a DSLR. Although I am really amazed by the capability of my small compact camera, the technical quality will not be on par with most FPCs. I am not trying to excuse sub-optimal technical quality. I would just like to explain the circumstances. It is up to the individual reviewer to consider if the rarity of the subject and the circumstances mitigates these observations, and I respect your stance. -- Slaunger 09:39, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
    To me it looks as if you have a bit of dirt or maybe a water drop on the right side of your lense. With the small lenses of a compact camera this can have a big effect on the photo. You should check your lense. The coastline behind the iceberg should have the same sharpness but it hasn't. I also had that problem with my compact Canon...and a lense cleaning resulted in an impressive improvement of the photo quality :) --AngMoKio 08:55, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
    Thank you for this advice AngMoKio. That may be another root cause. I know this is really off-topic, but how did you clean the lens? -- Slaunger 11:11, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
    well a difficult topic. Depends a bit what kind of dirt you have. I had a part of a finger print on the lense and removed it with a little bit of warm water and a paper towel. Important is that you dont press and rub hard...otherwise you can scratch the lense. There should be special cleaning kits available. The way i did it was for sure not the best. Cleaning my lenses and the sensor is sth i postpone all the time, because i am scared of it :) --AngMoKio 20:53, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
    Thank you for the explanation. It seems simpler than I had feared. -- Slaunger 21:03, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
    Still be very careful! --AngMoKio 21:06, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
    I always get a UV filter for all my lenses. They're much easier to clean, and you don't care if you scratch one of those. Also, I have a rubber air-blower that works pretty well. --Dori - Talk 21:58, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

So, removing people would be a lie.

    • upsetting comment and so conformist : we could also choose between the sea and the beach, the sea and the sky and why not just a white picture ?--B.navez 17:03, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
      • I don't see anything upseting about that comment. I think Simonizer is right. The composition is confusing. The eye doesn't really know where to rest. The rocks might look better in a vertical shot. The beach might look nicer if there would be more of the beach and water visible and only a bit of the rocks as a frame on the right side. --AngMoKio 17:23, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
        • So please tell me where shall I put the image border? Or would it be sufficient to displace my point of view to the left so that more beach and sea is visible. Then, the rocks would form a frame on the right. --Tobi 87 17:37, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
          • Well this depends a bit on the surroundings there. But you see your picture is split in half. One half is beach and water, the other half is rocks. A classical composition would be to have 2/3 beach&water and 1/3 rocks. The horizon of your picture is already placed quite well because it also divides the picture in 1/3 sky and 2/3 rest. Of course those "rules" can also get broken...it is not a must...but it is often helpful.--AngMoKio 20:52, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Is this scenery possible (regarding proportions and natural habitat of butterfly and fungus)? --norro 15:53, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I've read that this fungi is holarctic and can be found in India, Pakistan, too. The dimensions are quite real as the diameter of this fungi is average 15-30cm, and the butterfly is 30-40mm tall - plus i found out that this butterfly lives in german forrests, too thats why his name is Waldbrettspiel. So i would say: No worry :-)) --Richard Bartz 16:40, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose .. much 2 dark.. Before nominating for FP please do your homework first ;-). As a unsolicited substitute for Lycaon i have to ask: Why is it more important to categorize this as "pictures by dori" then "Larus occidentalis" or "gull" or better "Laridae" ? it would be more easy to find this picture thereinafter and a propper categorization should be a basic prerequisite for a FP. Same with the image name IMO --Richard Bartz 15:35, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
    • Richard, I shot this at -1/3 EV, I didn't want it to be too bright. Now you may disagree, but don't say I didn't do my homework. Regarding categories, it doesn't matter to me, my cat goes first as it's put in automatically by my script on all pictures I upload (so it's always there). Mentally it's easier for me to disregard it when I add other categories, if someone wants to rearrange them it's fine by me. --Dori - Talk 15:59, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Like I said my cat is first cause it's always present, the other categories are in the order that they come up to me, not in order of importance. What's more important anyway? How would you objectively differentiate between categories? I can come up with some counterargument on the importance of any order. --Dori - Talk 16:05, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

-- Alvesgaspar 07:43, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I like the rose, especially when I enlarge it so the flower fills the screen. For new photos, I'd suggest taking the shot when the entire flower is in the same kind of light. The bright sunlight has overexposed the tips of the petals. You can cut down on the contrast by holding a white diffusing screen (models that work for a flower are inexpensive) between the sun and the flower, or by photographing on a day when there are high, thin clouds. Next, try to subdue the background. One way to do that is to blur it using a wide-aperture lens such as f/2.8, f/2 or wider, and to move in pretty close (but not so close that the flower looks bad). Or select a flower that's high up, for example, growing in a pot on a balcony. Or choose a view that puts the background a long way away. Another way to subdue the background is to find a background that's getting less light than the flower. Using a telephoto lens gives a narrow angle, so even a small patch of shade can serve as a background. I hope you continue to contribute photos and wish you success in having your best work recognized. Fg2 12:32, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose DOF, but not in the sense the others think. I believe that such a dof as now is almost perfect, as it isolates the main subject - the flower in front.

As Rmhermen says this is a map of Inca Empire Road System and by the time these roads were used there were no Peru, Argentina or Ecuador, Infact the only reason I put these countries on the map is to have a better understandanding.

And I am not one to do this (except if it is blatant). --Freedom to share 20:04, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
  • I also thought about that, but thinking that this is only an improved version of the exact same picture that was POTY #2, I don't why the fact that it once was POTY2 makes changing the FP status over to an improved version wrong. Oh, BTW, defeat over what? And since when is improvement defeat? I mean, c'mon, sheesh. Just for the note: this edited version was uploaded after the original became POTY #2. Now, without any intention to offend, this thing about "it was POTY2, it can't be replaced" is really foolish. Again: it is just an improved version of the exact same picture.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This is the notorious Gamsleiten mountain as seen from the west. On its eastern side lies the Gamsleiten II slope and skilift, one of the hardest runs in Europe, with one segment being at a 45 degree angle. I feel that this image has enough value and wow to become an FP. It is a clear illustration of the subject. While sharpness is its weakness, it's due to the lens rather than anything else. I used a Hama Star 42 tripod and mirror lockup. Freedom to share

I do not, however, take the shadow to be a major problem as it does not in any way interfere with the main subject. Thank you for your feedback, Freedom to share 09:44, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
