  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This photo is astonishing at the fact that there are no people at the "Brandenburger Tor" (despite a small cyclist behind the gate). Remember that this gate is one of the most visited sights in Germany. The light in the early morning is ideal, because the rising sun illuminates the characteristic front of the gate perfectly and only at this day time. A well done photograph of a seldom view of this gate. --Tuxyso (talk) 06:49, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

    • This photo is 32 years old. I made it in July 1980 with my camera model Olympus OM-1 on the color-slide-film Kodachrome 24. The OM 1 is famous: she is 2012 digitally remastered as Olympus OM-D E-M5. Kodachrome 25 is the trademarked name of a brand of slide film with 25 ASA sold by Eastman Kodak. When stored in darkness, Kodachromes long-term stability under ordinary conditions is superior to other types of color slide film; images on Kodachrome 25 slides over fifty years old retain accurate color and density. But every film has grain, also the Kodachrome 25. The digitally scan leaves the grain on the digitally remastered image. I can provide a full resolution scan, but the image in the large resolution is noisy. The full removal of grain destroys the sharpness of the image. The only way to show the scanned image without grain is to reduce the resolution. I know: Commons don't like noisy images. --Michael Gäbler (talk) 21:49, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
      • I'm well aware of this ridiculous idiosyncrasy. After noticing the image description and the scanner, I thought providing a full resolution scan would be great if available, at least for the few film camera aficionados out there. This downsampled version has little to do with representing the aura of the original. Sadly even the Nikon Coolscan V ED, which is a great scanner, is unable to mimic the quality of the original. I don't think it's Commons that does not like noisy images, I think it's the community. Regards, Peter Weis (talk) 21:21, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Artist’s impression of how the surface of Pluto might look, according to one of the two models that a team of astronomers has developed to account for the observed properties of Pluto’s atmosphere, as studied with CRIRES. The image shows patches of pure methane on the surface. At the distance of Pluto, the Sun appears about 1000 times fainter than on Earth.

Rathinda amor
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The Monkey Puzzle, Rathinda amor is a small lycaenid or blue butterfly found in South Asia. The butterfly has a weak flight, it stays low and does not fly for long without alighting. Its method of alighting is interesting - as soon as it lands, it turns around and waggles its tail filaments, it also sidesteps for a while - all this is apparently to confuse a predator as to which side is the head. This is a likely reason that the first naturalists may have named the species the Monkey Puzzle. All by me. -- Jkadavoor (Jee) (talk) 08:20, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The horizon tilt is minor but oddly distracting. The real problem with this image is there is no sense of subject. Reading the image description is less than helpful in that regard. The image rests uncomfortably between a landscape and a photo of a person/structure. 131.137.245.207 08:22, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
    • The images shows the dunes of Blåvandshuk. Whats the problem with it? --Wladyslaw (talk) 08:32, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
      • The image description only said Blåvandshuk so adding "dunes" helps. As to the problem, while this is technically sound image I would say it, like serveral other current nominations, lacks wow. It also lacks a certain internal coherecy as to the theme with the individual taking centre stage, the beach setting with sports going on and the "bunker" all providing distractions instead of adding to the image. A wider perspective to take in more of the beach and expanse of the dunes may have served your purpose better. As it is this is just a documentation photo of a pile of grass covered sand next to a beach. Opinions are like arseholes... everyone has one. 131.137.245.207 14:22, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
        • I like this landscape very much and I like the composition of paths, grass areas and the sea. But for sure: not every likes this landscape or is impressed in the same way. Those who like it will support it, those who dislike it will not. Nevertheless: no reason to express bawdy analogies. --Wladyslaw (talk) 14:36, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

    No; they have foldable wings. They completely close their wings only to rest under the leaf. This is a quick landing to feed on. (I was on the bank of the paddy field and lucky enough to take a click after approaching her by a quick run, seeing this emergency landing.)

This means that you should hurry every day to the Beth midrash/synagoge to learn, and wait until the doors are open. (This way you can learn to enjoy it, and you'll find life; [1]).

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I think, this image must be deleted and Ramesh Ramaiah has to be expel from Commons. He forged on 4 August 2012 the Template Assessments|featured on his not featured File:Godavari Bridge.jpg. He supersedet in the Picture of the day 11 August 2012 on 4 August 2012 the Featured Picture File:Tyto alba (Scopoli, 1769).jpg and placed his not featured File:Godavari Bridge.jpg there. He removed on 4 August 2012 as well the Template picture of the day|year=2012|month=08|day=11 from the File:Tyto alba (Scopoli, 1769).jpg. He knew what he did: Commons:Picture of the day says: "All Pictures of the Day are chosen among the Featured pictures of Commons". The User Mywood had removed in the Picture of the day 11 August 2012 the File:Godavari Bridge.jpg on 1 August 2012 with the words "not featured" and had placed there the Featured Picture File:Tyto alba (Scopoli, 1769).jpg. --Michael Gäbler (talk) 19:52, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I reverted the POTD page of August 11th (however it's too late the damage is done). I'm puzzled, clearly if Ramaiah did it on purpose with a clear understanding of perfoming a "mischief" there is something to do, otherwise we have to explain him our rules (Errare humanum est, perseverare diabolicum). --PierreSelim (talk) 20:36, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
    I left him a message on his talk page, a explanation is needed IMO :) --PierreSelim (talk) 20:47, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
    There is no meaning to reverting the POTD page now. Although it was not according to rules, the documentation should be in accordance with reality - the POTD of August 11th was File:Godavari Bridge.jpg, not File:Tyto alba (Scopoli, 1769).jpg. Displaying File:Tyto alba (Scopoli, 1769).jpg as the POTD of this day will only be misleading, and can only prevent it from appearing as a true POTD of another day. Tomer T (talk) 04:01, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
    You are quite right we should not prevent this picture to get chosen as POTD in the future (we could already schedule it we have the description in several languages). I removed the POTD template from the description. However I do not support to put the bridge as being POTD for that day. Ok it was displayed, but it was not chosen according to our rules. At best I think we should show no POTD for August 11, 2012 on the POTD page. --PierreSelim (talk) 12:52, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment We can't know for sure he really knew what he was doing. I think we rather assume good faith. Looking briefly on his en.wiki profile, he doesn't seem like a harmful user, but the other way around - that should have been a mistake. Even if it's written in the POTY page that only FPs can be POTYs, the more probable scenario is that he simply didn't read the guidelines there (which is in itself a mistake, but can be forgiven for a first time mistake) - and he also probably didn't understand the edit summary by Mywood. But, the true fault here was that no admin took care of the situation in time (are we short on admins?). Tomer T (talk) 21:03, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Depends. Since the Gotthard line is quite popular among railfans, I've been there a few times. In 2010 I've taken this picture, and wanted to repeat it with less shadows, more green and better weather. I only got around to actually do it last saturday. So in a sense, more than two years ;) But the actual preparation for saturday was just to find out when to be there (the sun's position should be about right, at least 30° off the axis of the line, there are tools for that), find out how to get there by public transport (I don't have a car) and actually do it... There is enough traffic on the line such that you don't have to worry about actually getting a train in front of the lens (on weekdays it can easily be 8 trains per hour in one direction). Although if you want to take pictures of freight trains, better don't go on sundays. --Kabelleger (talk) 20:57, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose OK, most of my maths is far behind me so I apologize in advance for any non relevant comment, but I'm not quite sure of the usefulness of the penultimate step where the red line is stretched to reach the arrows of the axises (I would have skipped it). Or could you explain? Thanks. Also it's not so obvious that a warmer color in the plan means "higher" point. Not specified anywhere in the pic nor the caption. Quite nice otherwise. - Benh (talk) 10:52, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
  • the switch to 3d view shows quite well the meaning of the colors in fact... forget it, I was a bit too fast at writing this. - Benh (talk) 10:57, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
The stretching illustrates the rectification of curve, which shows the importance to take into account its arc length. The line integral is along the length of the curve, and not a simple distance from a to b or some projection of the curve onto a line. This is what the r(t) part represents, and it's a very important bit. This other animation I created recently illustrates what the arc length of a curve means and what rectification does. As for the colors, they're just to illustrate the overall field and the shape of the surface better. There's no need to explain it too much because they are arbitrary and irrelevant to the concept being presented. — Kieff | KieffWikipedia | Talk 12:32, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
  • OK. I don't find it obvious that the stretching was a mean to get the length of the arc. On the other animation, the curve transitions to a straight line and the concept is far more obvious. Here, it only misleads (me at least) to understand "simple stretch". And even more since last step "stretches" the arrows again. Even though my math is something of the past, I should be able to get the meaning of an animation which claims to explain complex concepts in an intuitive manner. Or I shall I open again my math books ? ;) One more thing, I think I would display the plan before the red line (otherwise the meaning is unclear at first). - Benh (talk) 15:22, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Aaah I should really be more careful before writing. The red line goes from curve to straight... and then only do you change the point of view. Maybe the arrow stretching mislead me... Sorry. Looks to me mostly me not understanding well. Then only last sentence is an issue. Changed my vote. Symbol support vote.svg Support - Benh (talk) 15:30, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
All right. I'll see if I can address those two issues. I should have a new version up within the hour.Kieff | KieffWikipedia | Talk 15:40, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
Here it is. Not a very significant change, and for some reason the new version is 200 kB larger. I don't get it. I uploaded it to imgur instead. — Kieff | KieffWikipedia | Talk 18:32, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks a lot for effort (and although u had my support already ;) ) I think these little changes (especially the one on last step) enhance the understanding and space isn't a concern for Commons, so you could probably overwrite. - Benh (talk) 21:40, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose-It's brilliant except for the fact that 0.12 MP is too small.--Gauravjuvekar (talk) 15:47, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
That's not entirely fair for animated images, and even the FP page mentions it:
Resolution – Images (with the exception of animations, videos, and SVGs)
There are good technical reasons for the reduced dimensions, too. The MediaWiki running in here has a 12.5 MP limit for generating animated thumbnails. This counts for all the frames, so at 400x300, the hard limit is about 100 frames. For 60 frames, I can go as high as 800x600. However, I explicitly try to keep it under that so that not only the animation may be resized if absolutely necessary, but the original is small enough so that it may be included in the article in its non-resized form.
I do this because it preserves the dithering and palette management that was tailor-made for the animation. The automatic thumbnails are usually grainy, they mess with the colors and are full of artifacts. Here's this animation at 300px. You'll see that the frames leave ghost "blotches" behind, and in the last part, there are even phantom white lines across the plane. This is not acceptable and can ruin a good animation sometimes.
I could make a high resolution version, but to be honest, it would add nothing to the animation. — Kieff | KieffWikipedia | Talk 16:37, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
Could you make a higher resolution version and upload it separately(and link to it on the description page)? Images on Commons are reusable outside Wikimedia projects as well. A higher resolution version could be used for example in a slideshow presentation.--Gauravjuvekar (talk)
A higher resolution version would be better as a video, though. But sure, I can do that. — Kieff | KieffWikipedia | Talk 14:51, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
OK, here's the HQ video version. I don't know if I encoded it completely right, though. It seems to play fine, but Media Player Classic and VLC complain about it. I used ffmpeg2theora-0.29 for the encoding. — Kieff | KieffWikipedia | Talk 15:38, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - The lighting does not disturb me, not every image needs to be bright and sunny, shadow is allowable. In this case, it's a matter of (natural) lighting instead of a technical issue. I like the subject and composition, at least its not a jetfighter or some other kind of flashy equipment, just a guy doing his job. The pixellation in the guys face bothers me, though. Kleuske (talk) 08:41, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I support what you said about not every image having to be bright and sunny. It just seems to me like this picture was edited particularly to increase contrast and create a dark look, because especially in the bottom left corner, large areas are completely black. This would explain the pixellation you mentioned, too. (Also, it looks more like a guy posing than like a guy doing his job to me.) --Julian H. (talk/files) 09:38, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I've not understood your comment, Julian --Pottercomuneo (talk) 17:44, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
In a little more detail: The photo is very noisy (which is made worse because the noise has then been compressed relatively heavily so that details have been lost). Also, the remaining details have been sharpened so that every detail above a certain sharpness has become very heavily sharpened, in some areas resulting in fully white lines with dark outlines. I also don't think the composition works particularly well as the main subject is located in front of other similarly bright objects that are distracting. And my last point was that the images creates no Wow-emotion in me, what I would expect at least to some extend from a featured picture. I hope that clarifies my comment. --Julian H. (talk/files) 19:15, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
