Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because the image is too noisy (ISO 1600) Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The result of image over processing is not pleasing when viewing at high resolution. Poor image documentation. It needs identification to species level and location details. Snowmanradio (talk) 12:53, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment. I note that the species and locality details have been added. This is a close-up image and the documentation does not explain how the photographer managed to get so close to this bird. Is the bird in captivity? The new image description asks us to notice the details in the nose. Incidentally, what structures are seen just beyond the nares in the nose? It this a normal nose or is it pathological? Snowmanradio (talk) 12:07, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Why do you want me always to show six sides of an object, whereas all your pictures of objects show only one? Your objects are as well three-dimensional as mine, why are six views obligatory in my pictures, but not in yours??? The Louvre Pyramid has at least 5 sides, which can be photographed (south, west, nord, east, and aerial), but you figure only one!! Where are the other views?? The same is for other pictures: The cathedral of Narbonne - here I would be very glad to see also the front, which certainly differs from the lateral view -, the Cour Carrée of the Louvre Museum (especially here it is yery easy, you must just turn a bit and you have the other views), and so on. --Llez (talk) 07:14, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
      • I don't want anything. But when providing 5 face, you basically mean to be exhaustive, but you're not. I don't mean to, in the examples you mention. You might as well provide a single view then. - Benh (talk) 08:38, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
        • I never said, that I want to be exhaustive and I have already said, that the sixth view you insist always, gives no further information, it is nearly quite the same as the first. BTW, does it mean, one view or six? There are several featured pictures of shells with two or three views. Why didn't you oppose there??? Would you support, when I only show one view? I don't believe so. --Llez (talk) 09:30, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
          • Why getting through the trouble to take 5 views if it's not to be exhaustive ? No I won't support one view either because I'm just bored to see tons of shells here, which aren't even properly shot. I've supported several two or three views shots of objects (not shell) because they were properly taken (not 200 iso, not f/xx with xx very high _not the case here_, better lighting, not masking but instead plain background with a soft drop shadow). Notice that although I'm not a fan of shells, I don't always oppose them, like in your last nom because I think it was fine enough. - Benh (talk) 10:16, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
            • Which ISO would you propose and why? I'm always interested in suggestions to optimize my pictures --Llez (talk) 12:05, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
              • Obviously, I'd propose ISO 100 for minimal noise. High ISO are for situations when there's not enough light and you need to maintain high shutter speed. In your case, you don't need to maintain high shutter speed since I guess you can leave your camera still to shot your collection of shells. - Benh (talk) 16:08, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

    • I am really surprised by the "lack of sharpness" comments. This image was taken with a Canon 5DMKII with a L-series lens stopped down to f/11 to get the greatest sharpness out of it. There is evidently no motion blur (1/50sec exposure with IS turned on), and I applied a slight extra degree of sharpness on post-processing. Focus point was set on the mill itself (as confirmed by the EXIF data). I really encourage people to look at the full-res image and judge from the original uploaded file and not from the thumbnails. --Murdockcrc (talk) 10:39, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
      • This means nothing. Your body/lens may suffer from off focusing, I as lately experienced. You may also have locked the focus on any element, and reframed before shooting (though this is very unlikely here)... There are tons of possibilities. - Benh (talk) 11:43, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Please notice that on this image, one can see the pipes besides the front pipes, even the wooden pipes. No other picture with this detail in "Commons".
-Does not show how beautiful the whole room is. It is not the subject of this photo, no need (i'm not able for now) to remake a Diliff picture (which does not show the whole room, by the way : where is the very interesting marble floor/ground ? The baroque altar ? ).
-Furthermore, "beauty of the room" is matter of taste. Saint-Simon wrote: « elle offre de partout la triste représentation d'un catafalque. » ("From everywhere looks sadly like a catafalque")
-I'm truly sorry for those who find this organ "common". I chose deliberately to show this organ, alone and cropped (not polluted by the altar's sculptures), because it is not common due to a lot of details (in front of the king, above the altar -that is very rare if not unique-, etc etc...) and I wanted to focus about that.
-When one enter the chapel from the first floor (the vestibule or salon de la chapelle) as I did in this case, indirection to the king's tribune, one is obliged to look at that in first.
-I think that the visual interaction between the corinthian columns and the vertical pipes is not so bad...--Jebulon (talk) 22:33, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Not unfair, nor funny. I just mean that the sharpness is impressive because it's likely you took the picture handheld, at 70mm and with a 0.2sec exposure. But still it's not a top notch quality. I don't see what's off here. Also, when I say I wouldn't look at something first, I mean that this is not the part I prefer... I also think the columns are unfortunate here as they hide part of the subject in a rather unpleasant way. Next time I think I'll just oppose without taking the time to justify. - Benh (talk) 08:23, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

*Please save your cynical jibes. It is especially sad to see you spilling them over onto other nominations. This image is over 2MPx, so does not qualify for FPX on resolution grounds. --99of9 (talk) 03:27, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
  • 99of9, I think you are slightly mistaken. This image is only .96 MP, and so does qualify for FPX. Too bad really, I love the lighting. --The High Fin Sperm Whale 04:53, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
  • My apologies, I read it as 1800x1200. Since it doesn't qualify, and I don't see exceptional unrepeatable circumstances, I'll go ahead and fulfill IdLoveOne's prophecy :). --99of9 (talk) 05:45, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because Falls well short of the size requirement of 2 MPx. If the uploader can provide a larger version, I think this would be a good candidate. 99of9 (talk) 05:45, 14 April 2011 (UTC) Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Nothing special, compostion wasteful, true FPX. --Yikrazuul (talk) 17:50, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Also @ Avenue: I see composition problems too, but I think the photographer did try to take a good picture, which is why we see the exact back of the duck aligned with the bush. Maybe if it was just some random shot, terribly over-edited, purposelessly burnt out or overly darkened, way under the 2MP something like that, then I would say FPX is more called for. I don't feel like this is such a case. -- One, please. ( Thank you.) 19:42, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
      • My understanding is that {{FPX}} is for images one is confident have no chance of succeeding. The photographer's effort or intent is irrelevant. The image doesn't even need to flagrantly breach the guidelines; it just needs to be clearly not one of our best. --Avenue (talk) 17:19, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

If nobody wants it featured except the nominator, let's not have it hanging around here for 10 days. (There are about one million "decent pictures" on commons - that's not what FP is for.)

FPX doesn't mean "I don't like it! Get it off the candidate list, quick!" it means the image must be an obvious and extraordinary deviation from minimal standards to deserve a disruption to a nominator's right to have their image included here.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I struck my vote so the image could expire after its 5 days, not because I changed my mind that this type of FPXing is a good practice. -- One, please. ( Thank you.) 02:42, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info -- Many editors are not aware that one of the reasons for creating the FPX template (by User:MichaelMaggs) was to spare the nominators/creators from a long stack of oppose votes. Another reason was to free the FPC page of pictures with no chance of success, in a time when the total number of daily nominations was very high and each user was free to present as many as he wanted. The idea that the template is used to humiliate, intimidate or chase away the newbies is just false. At least, that is never my purpose. Alvesgaspar (talk) 16:07, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Does this make my opinion worth less, if i'm not voting on every image? At first i wanted to write that the lighting is so hard, because it is so close (short distance). I changed it basically for one reason, that you don't think, i would reference your other vote. But if we are at it: Could you tell which arm you mean? Left/Right from your/her perspective? --Niabot (talk) 16:59, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
I never say it. Anyway, you are right in your comment. I doubted because "short light" does not mean "short distance". I also have problems with my English, I wanted designate her left arm from her perspective, if it is a shortcut, it is a bit failed. --Citron (talk) 17:45, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Understood that a dark environment would be expected, but I think a sharper image can be achieved. Good image anyways. --ZooFari 01:33, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
    • FWIW, given that he was performing, not posing, exposure was probably the maximum possible in the circumstances with that camera and lens. 1/60 sec at F/4.8, ISO 3,200. Also FWIW, if anyone can suggest anything that would allow things to be pushed even further for a concert shot like that, I'd be genuinely interested in learning. - Jmabel ! talk 04:58, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Some artifacts and underexposed. Low ISO values should be used to minimize noise levels (the high levels are used for marcophotography and moving subjects). Observe the lightning in the venue and time your photos accordingly.--Snaevar (talk) 12:30, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose: Picture seems dark. I don't think this is the best picture to represent the subject. --Another Believer (talk) 18:53, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Clearly going against, perfectly glad to withdraw the nomination, but as for the remark above about "high levels are used for marcophotography (sic) and moving subjects": this was a moving subject. 1/60 sec is certainly the longest exposure I would venture to use to photograph a rock musician while he was performing, and even then you have to really pick your moment. - Jmabel ! talk 00:41, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

A brownish or yellowish background only looks good, if there are also browninsh or yellowish colors in the shell. Here we have no brown nor yellow, but grey, black, bluish and violet. In this case grey is better IMO, see also [4]. The background always depends of the color of the the shell IMO and one can't say that a special color (often voters request a black background) is always suited as standard background for all objects. --Llez (talk) 08:33, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- Light conditions are difficult, resulting in a dark and poorly contrasted image. It could be improved though, by adjusting the lighting, contrast and saturation (I have tried). Anyway I'm not sure the result will be good enough for FP. Alvesgaspar (talk) 12:56, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

    • Peut-être tu as raison et je dois simplement partir. Le problème c'est qu'il me casse l'âme d'assister à la destruction de FPC pour des raisons moins nobles (la démagogie et les "personal agendas", en particulier). Pourtant, je reste toujours modèste avec mes photos! Alvesgaspar (talk) 14:29, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Mes images ne sont pas parfaites, loin de là. Je trouve qu'il y a pire, même ici... Pour autant, je ne crois pas participer à la "destruction de FPC", comme tu dis, pour quelque raison que ce soit, ni dans mes propositions, ni dans mes votes...(je ne comprends pas l'expression "personal agendas")--Jebulon (talk) 16:05, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
      • Bien sur, je ne parlais pas de toi. Tes critiques sont bien plus justes et soigneuses que la plupart des autres! Ni je crois qu'il y quelqu'un avec le but explicite de détruire FPC. Mais quand on appui n'importe quoi, ou on le fait avec un autre but, c'est ça le resultat. "Personal agenda" means some hidden purpose, usually for own benefit (like being popular or hurting some third party). Uf, c'est bien difficile pour moi d'écrire en français! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 17:23, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- Please do not get offended with the comment but a FP should be really extraordinary (when compared to other pictures). Also, we would expect a better reason for supporting, other than liking it (like in Facebook). Alvesgaspar (talk) 21:48, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
      • I can understand your opinion, but I kind of also think it would make a good POTD. I don't know, it just seems to me like most non-digitally edited or retouched photos are probably basically gonna be similar to this. Can you maybe provide me an example link to something you think is more feature-worthy?-- One, please. ( Thank you.) 22:35, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
      • I wonder why "boring" and "nothing extraordinary" should be more solid arguments then "I like it". Sounds very overbearing. --Wladyslaw (talk) 21:58, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
        • That is because, by default, a picture comes here as non-promoted... Only extraordinary images should, by definiton of FP, receive the seal. Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:07, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
          • You did not answered my question well. But I have already seen that you put other opinions beneath yours. --Wladyslaw (talk) 22:13, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose -- Nice quality and correct picture. But nothing extraordinary justifying the FP seal. Alvesgaspar (talk) 21:52, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral I think the framing is really smart, well emphasising the proportions of the subject. What makes it neutral is the emptiness in the foreground. --ELEKHHT 01:58, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Architecture is corresponding always with his surrounding. Thus I also wanted to show. --Wladyslaw (talk) 06:19, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
      • I am not sure if I understand your comment, but I wasn't saying that you shouldn't have included the square. What I meant was that if there would have been some people in the square closer to the camera the image would have been more dynamic/lively. --ELEKHHT 23:33, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
        • That would be hard to do in Germany. Identifiable people would have to be censored because of personal rights (Recht am eigenen Bild, eng. "Right on picture from yourself"). Thus it is the best solution to not have people in front of such an motive. There are exceptions inside this law, but this would not apply in this case. --Niabot (talk) 23:43, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
          • I am unfortunately very aware of that, I just had a long fight with a German publisher for having included images of identifiable people in a book. The problem is not insurmountable though: people do not need to face the camera, or can be blurred (choosing long time exposure, or graphic editing.) --ELEKHHT 23:52, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
            • Bluring people seldomly has an good effect on pictures under bright daylight conditions. Also it is nearly impossible to such a shot with long time exposure. As an German citizen that lives close to Lüneburg i would call this a typical scenario. Large crowds are seldom seen in such places at the given time. Its more a pro to illustrate this fact. --Niabot (talk) 00:01, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The buildings around the church, the surface and the cross on the top of the church indicate an overexposed image. Also, given the size, it should capture better the details around the clock on the church.--Snaevar (talk) 19:19, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Can you please specify: where is the image overexposured and where are missing details in this nearly 30 MP image? --Wladyslaw (talk) 19:28, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support You should have scaled it down, so no one would notice that it is "unsharp". As usual people don't think about other images and how they would look at stretched out at same resolution. --Niabot (talk) 16:34, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Nonsense. Downsampling a picture with the purpose of looking better is a childish thing to do, especially considering that Commons is repository of free media and we never know what use the images will be given. Fortunately most of the regular reviewers here know better than that. Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:51, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
      • Nonsense? Thats exactly what i criticized. But some of our users don't have good faith and others don't have the eyes to see the that a unsharp picture with 30MP is as good as an sharp picture with 10MP, when downsampled to 10MP. But they vote as if it is an unsharp 10MP image. Now think again and stop stalking me or making wrong accusations. At least you could answer my other questions, if you don't have anything else to do. But i guess you are not able to do that, or no willing because of your wrong motives. --Niabot (talk) 23:11, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
      • Alves, Niabot meant it ironically, so you are both on the same page. Now you could hug and stop quarrelling... --ELEKHHT 23:33, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
        • OK, I got it now. Sorry. Erasing the whole thing. Alvesgaspar (talk) 00:07, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
          • Not sure, sometimes an image is simply too large and whatever detail it would have seem to be diluted -> oversampling? Not talking about making an image smaller so flaws are less visible. -- One, please. ( Thank you.) 02:45, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION
Nuvola apps important yellow.svg
Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because If I'm counting correctly today, this is below the 2MPx minimum resolution. Since there are no exceptional or mitigating circumstances, this is unlikely to succeed. It's a pity, I think a high-res version of this (with a little less noise?) would be a good candidate. --99of9 (talk) 07:30, 18 April 2011 (UTC) Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.

          • I did not criticize that filters might be used. But for such an image it would be in best interest to know which filters where used, how it was composited and when the image was made. Otherwise it's a nice image of the sun, but nothing more, scientifically speaking. --Niabot (talk) 01:08, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

                  • I agree with the date, but not with the fact that is not known which parts (ranges) are displayed to what extent. Which means they could and will have done anything to make it look good. But in this case it's nothing more then advertisement in its own interest. --Niabot (talk) 01:49, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
                    • You may feel however you like, but it sounds like this most current oppose is based on a bad faith assumption on NASA that overlooks the fact that they made plenty of other images that look similarly to this one, including pictures taken as recently as today. -- One, please.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Good, but the colors need work or white balancing I think. I suspect the stone and the building are whiter than that IRL. -- One, please. ( Thank you.) 15:43, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
    • It's not so white indeed. I can get a whiter shade, the difference is noticeable but not very big. BTW, what's IRL? Thanks. Kadellar (talk) 16:24, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
      • In real life. I'll Symbol support vote.svg Support if you're right then about the colors. Because usually when I see stone like that it's a greyish off-white that's brighter than that, which is why I asked. I do like the composition in this. -- One, please.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'd love to support it, because the top balcony of that building used to be mine for a night some years ago. :-) But the monument doesn't stand out enough from that building, and it's not symmetrical enough, sorry! -- H005 20:17, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per H005, and the crop is tight, and perspective could be corrected. --99of9 (talk) 00:35, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry but the composition just does not work for me either. The relationship between the monument and the background building is very ambiguous (appears to be random), neither perfectly overlapping nor properly detached. A shot from the side would have helped detached the two, a shot from further away would have made the building be a proper background to the monument. --ELEKHHT 23:43, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
