Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because Nothing featurable there. The so-called HDR does not automagically enhance an ordinary picture. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 23:17, 30 July 2010 (UTC) Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- I like photos of people and it is a shame when I cannot support them. In this case something is wrong with the lighting as most of the face is in the shadow. Also, I would prefer a slight different angle showing better the expression in the eyes. Let us wait for more opinions. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:45, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - sorry, but I find that label stuck to his specs too distracting - MPF (talk) 00:00, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
    • Well, he bought new glasses, but forgot to remove the label. I think that this adds a bit of fun to this rather dramatic image. This is real world, not a staged model. Yann (talk) 02:50, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - This is such an interesting image, but I can't support for the reasons Alvesgaspar gave. I wonder if a better version of this shot could be nominated, and if there is some background as to why the label on the eyeglasses. Jonathunder (talk) 02:35, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support--Avala (talk) 20:46, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Strong chromatic aberration in the top left corner, overall oily appearance, probably because of an aggressive denoising/smoothing. FPX might have been harsh, yet not totally unwarranted. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 02:32, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Great view, and I think that it has potential. However, in addition to what Maurilbert said, I feel that there is too much darkness in the foreground, which creates almost too strong of a contrast, especially with a bright background such as this one; the dark trees, especially the one pretuding from the top left, almost "invade" the background view, which is one of the greatest aspects of this image IMO. ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 03:43, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I actually think it captures the harsh, enervating oppressive heat and brightness of the place very well - you can just imagine yourself standing there with the sun beating down, your eyes screwed up against the intense light, and a splitting headache from dehydration. That's exactly the way the Mediterranean coast is in high summer. To show it with less exposure would be telling a lie. - MPF (talk) 09:28, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Even if you like the exposure levels, it's not sharp enough for Featured status. Steven Walling 18:20, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

In that case the organ would have "sat down" in the composition. That is why I cut off there. Yes, the lightning is really poor. Basilica... :-)--Ivanhoe (talk) 18:59, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Could you explain me why you think that perspective is not correct? I would like to learn... Thank you.Ivanhoe (talk) 21:43, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
I wrote "perspective is not corrected". The walls are leaning inside, this is an effect of tilting the camera upwards. This is correct but not "beautiful" and should be corrected. Formerly this was done with special lenses, today you can use software to do this. For more information and how to do look at www.shiftn.de for example. --Berthold Werner (talk) 08:18, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support . . . nice pic, but needs more info: I'll add the extra brackets for support with this extra info: (1) location, (2) date, (3) a bit more clarification of what "manually done panorama" means. If available, some info on why the people were taking their dogs out on surfboards would also be of interest (and may greatly enhance the educational value) - are they working dogs, e.g. being used to sniff out shellfish for harvest, or just dogs out playing with their owners? - MPF (talk) 12:41, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
The date and location is added."Manually done panorama" means that I was not able to stitch a few image using a program, and done it manually instead. I know nothing about the people on surfboards,except that the owner of the restaurant I took the picture from, told me, it was the very first time they paddled so close to the shore in this place. The tide,and the ocean conditions were just right for them to paddle there, and then they got behind the reefs, and were gone, except one of them caught a small wave, when he passed the reefs. They were two boys and one girl. --Mbz1 (talk) 14:30, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - it's obviously a very cluttered picture because it's a cluttered scene, but the photographer has taken advantage of this. At first glance, it confuses and perplexes and it seems as if the tram were heading up into the sky - the perspective on the tram lines cuts in front of the oddly warped buildings intersecting with their own ornamentation of sagging arcs, the tram's power connection is aligned with the balcony, the sign for the stop is aligned with the edge of the building. I think this shot highlights the oddity of the building itself. Wnt (talk) 21:16, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Out of fog Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge and  San Francisco in fog and w:crepuscular rays.
I don't think they need to be parallel in the picture given the geometry. bamse (talk) 22:12, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
They all need to converge radially on a single point (the position of the sun) - MPF (talk) 22:25, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
Yes, but can I take the rays in a 2D projection (the image, any image), extend them and will I end up at the sun in the same image (assuming it was included)? Actually on second look, I noticed that I might have mistaken a hole in the clouds for the shadow of the mountain. Possibly the uneven surface of the clouds on which the shadow falls could give the wrong impression you were talking about?! bamse (talk) 06:48, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Is this picture made of images taken at totally different places as well? --Lošmi (talk) 02:34, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
It is not a photo montage, it is a normal panorama photographed at the same time, the same date and the same place. All the images included in the other image you refer to were taken at the same place also. I am not sure how you could have thought I combined the images taken in a different places! This image is also a panorama photographed on the very same day,at the very same place, and at the very same time as the images used for the nominated image. And if you don't get it, it might be better to ask first than to make insinuations. --Mbz1 (talk) 03:32, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
Ok. I'm sorry about insinuation that they are totally different pics, but this just doesn't look realistic to me. The perspective doesn't fit. It's like you took the images at the same time and place, but from the different points. I see two different pictures here. And again, sorry about that insinuation, but I don't think this panorama is merged correctly. --Lošmi (talk) 04:45, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
I used tripod to take the images. They all were taken from the very same place. The only thing that was moving from shot to shot was the tripod's head. --Mbz1 (talk) 05:03, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
And to end all the suspicions I now uploaded one of the original (not post processed at all images San francisco in fog with rays original.jpg. I do not remember, if this particular one was used to create the panorama (I took few sets, and I do not remember which ones I've used for the panorama), but it gives you an idea how it looked in the real life. Not even in a bad dream I would have thought about adding Golden Gate Bridge to the place it does not belong!--Mbz1 (talk) 05:49, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
I could swear that this is not merged correctly. Sry, my mistake. Thank you for clearing all doubts. --Lošmi (talk) 06:13, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don't think so. The shell is white to creamy-white (upper side), the base (callus and mouth) is brownish. Perhaps you refer to the "periostracum", an organic layer on the shell, which is brown. But this periostracum you mostly see only in living or fresh caught animals, is normally not preserved as it is lapsed.

      • There is a very good free svg editor called Inkscape, so editing is not exactly restricted. Nevertheless, my reason for nominating this is simply that I did not see any svg anatomy images that looked this good. If anyone makes a fantastic svg image, I'll support that too! --99of9 (talk) 00:37, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
But it doesn't come packaged in with computers that people buy; how many people go through the difficulty of finding it and taking the risk of installing it? Very few, I bet. I tried once, and got a warning that installing it might harm my computer, so I didn't. - MPF (talk) 08:56, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
I invite you to draw in SVG, if you need help. I could convert this to SVG like other works --The Photographer (talk) 01:05, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
already a FP
If you do convert it and it looks better, I'll be happy to vote to replace this if it becomes a FP. At this stage however, the somewhat comparable SVG File:Respiratory_system_complete_en.svg (which is already a FP) is not as nice looking in my opinion (although it is a very fine diagram, and is somewhat more comprehensive, so I'm not voting to delist). --99of9 (talk) 01:37, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
I just realised that you might be under the impression that I drew/painted this. I'm afraid my abilities are no where near this level. I've drawn some figures in svg Category:Diagrams by User:99of9, but they're nowhere near this league. --99of9 (talk) 03:26, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

    • Actually very little perspective correction was done on this particular image (here's the unprocessed original from RAW), I rather guess the one expecting a smaller angular diameter is you as this building's top is quite unusual.

Vonwegen Schnappschuss und Komposition, ich war 3x auf diesem Berg und habe stundenlang gewartet um das richtige Licht zu bekommen. Damit der Stausee nicht so langweilig wie die meisten aussieht, habe ich bewusst die Staumauer mit einbezogen. Das gibt dem Bild eine zusätzliche Tiefe und dies wiederum lässt sich nur von diesem Standort ablichten. Solltest du mal einen 2500er schaffen, kannst du ja gerne einen besseren Standort für die gewünschte Komposition suchen, du wirst auch mit Seil und Bickel keinen finden. mfg. --Böhringer (talk) 22:17, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Einem Bild immer sofort anzusehen, welche Arbeit dahinter steckt, ist nicht leicht. Ich kenne mich in der Gegend nicht aus, und vom Klettern halte ich nicht viel. Du kannst es garantiert gut einschätzen, ob man einen besseren Standpunkt für den ganzen See hätte finden können. Jedoch bleibt mir nur das zu bewerten, was ich sehe, und da nur das halbe Hauptmotiv zu sehen ist, gefällt mir nicht (wohl Geschmackssache, dem einen gefällt es mehr, dem anderen weniger). Ich möchte auch noch mal sagen, dass die Qualität wirklich in Ordnung und die Farben/Lichtverhältnisse sehr schön ausgenutzt/aufgenommen wurden. Das alleine macht für mich aber die Verdeckung nicht wet und reicht imo alleine auch nicht, um ein Bild Exzellent zu nennen. Grüße --kaʁstn Disk/Cat 11:25, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

But this should be easy to fix, right?? --99of9 (talk) 06:24, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I've never seen a fossil plate with such an outline. Why cut off in this way, why not the natural outline? --Llez (talk) 07:35, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
The thing is that this image is a panorama. For me it was the only way to take such high resolution image of the rather long shrimp, but of course it was a crazy idea to take panorama using close-up settings. If you look at the edges, you will see they do not look good at all Isome part in focus, some parts out of focus). Of course, I could have fixed them manually, but it is very time consuming job. So I decided that the shrimp - the most important part of the rock is to be shown good, and cut my panorama as I did. I agree it looks strange. I did left a natural edges in the front and in the back parts of the rock. --Mbz1 (talk) 13:35, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

The images for the panorama were taken with point-and-shoot camera, with the same settings. The rock itself is sharper in some places than it is in others. I uploaded a new version over an old one. I hope it is better now. BTW thanks for the comments, everybody. I am glad you found the image interesting.--Mbz1 (talk) 17:19, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The outline may look strange but it emphasizes the fossile remainings of the shrimps.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment You are right.. but it is not always feasible to have what you want.. (in the right part there were a lot of trees hidding the bridge (if I remember correctly)) this is why I added the other to photos to get a feeling how the bridge is. Ggia (talk) 11:52, 14 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Hm... it is not just that the ends of the bridge are cropped off but from the supplied additional shots we can see that this bridge has two semicircular arches of which just one is shown. While this shot may look good, it is quite misleading in regard to the bridge. For me File:20100413 Meswnikh Gefyra Kompsatos Thrace Greece 2.jpg is far superior. Next point is that I would expect a more detailed description for FP candidates, i.e. when was this bridge constructed? The description tells that this is a "Middle ages bridge" — did you mean that this is a medieval bridge? And if, from which medieval period? Do you know anything about its span width and/or its breadth? --AFBorchert (talk) 13:38, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Being a train, I expect some sort of "excitement" from it, whether it be a show of motion, a view that shows both the train and it's surroundings, or even just an interesting angle of the train, one that gives depth and an interesting perception. A side-view angle, however, is rather straightforward and un-exciting. It certainly has it's positives in an encyclopedic sense, though. ~Kevin Payravi (Talk) 03:51, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
