Plant Acanthus mollis from the Botanical garden of Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic
Pictogram-voting question.svg Question Could you show me, what is unsharp on image of this plant flower in the centre? Which part of flower is unsharp or what problem is here for you? Thanks. --Karelj (talk) 18:43, 30 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I cannot, because the whole plant is unsharp and/or blurred. IMHO there are two possibilities: 1. You forgot to activate vibrance reduction on your lens (does the lens have VR?) 1/160 @ 100mm could be critical without VR oder you mis-focused the plant. It looks as if the focus lies in front of the plant. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:05, 30 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, if you are right, the problem must be in age of my eyes. --Karelj (talk) 21:44, 30 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Logo of a Panther B8 motorcycle.
The logo is attached to the motorcycle's fender - a round surface. You might want to have a look at the annotations of File:Wiki-Projekt Private Fahrzeugsammlung Braunschweig NIK 1826.JPG. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 06:09, 30 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
From what distance did you take the picture? What is the depth of the logo? --Florian Fuchs (talk) 07:44, 30 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
~0,3-0,5m distance, ~1-3cm depth due to the fender's curvature. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 09:05, 30 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
At a distance of 50 cm, a focal length of 100 mm, and an aperture of 7.1 the DOF is 0.86 cm. This can never be sharp if the depth of the log is somewhere between 1 und 3 cm in my opinion, unless you use focus stacking. --Florian Fuchs (talk) 09:25, 30 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, I'm well aware of using a depth of field table. The intention for this shot was neither to get the entire logo in focus, nor to use focus stacking to compensate. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 19:54, 30 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

BTW: For an FP candidature of such an object I had expected a better sharpness (e.g. like this stone plate) and I am not sure if the plaque is 100% in focus. If I am correctly informed three of the pro-voters are French - probably one can only understand the FP quality with knowledge of French history? --Tuxyso (talk) 18:38, 29 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    No, it has nothing to do with french history. My support is only due to pure national canvassing, of course and as usual. Good answer ? If not, I think that this picture is really charming, I feel some emotion when reading the text, a special poem in a typical and classical french form (alexandrins). This makes me a little sad and "romantic". I do like the contrast between the stone texture and the metal, the capture of colors is perfect, and well, this testimony of love through the centuries speaks to me. For me, there is something "special" in this picture, far much more than in the tons of top quality butterflies or spectacular landscapes we have here (I appreciate them too). Maybe it is a part of the "french spirit" (if any)?--Jebulon (talk) 11:47, 31 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you take a look on this direct Suncalc link you can see that at the daytime of the photo all important parts of the harbour als well-lightened by the morning light. Take e.g. a look at the tower on the very right. Later at the day you have got the problem of contra-light situations. --Tuxyso (talk) 04:50, 29 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • All important parts may be well-lightened. However, the cloudy sky makes the picture look boring to me. Besides I find the shadow on the left hand side disturbing. Overall, although it may have been difficult to stich the pictures together, the picture seems like an ordinary snapshot, escpecially if I compare it to the FPs you have taken so far. --Florian Fuchs (talk) 05:12, 29 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • An interesting argument, but I think the term "snapshot" is misplaced here. If I take a photo I always think about the light and composition. You are right that this photo was a relatively spontaneous one. I took it before a boad trip to seal banks near the harbour of Cuxhaven. Spontaneous photos (not snapshots) are not bad per se - in contrary. A very special light situation, sky formation or motive is seldom planable. If I take a look on my FPs I would say that about 50% of them were spontaneous photos (with the meaning that I have not planned to photograph exactly that motive in that compositon). --Tuxyso (talk) 06:25, 29 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    • My main purpose was to take a very detailed and documentary photo of the harbour with good light. I had also wished Queen Mary in the harbour, but she was not there :) --Tuxyso (talk) 06:25, 29 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • In my opinion you achieved that goal. However, that doesn't necessarily make it a FP. --Florian Fuchs (talk) 06:57, 29 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • Let the Crowd decide :) Some users do obviously like this image and would like to see it as FP. Another user on QIC encouraged me to nominate this image. IMHO it is good enough for an FP, let's wait. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:00, 29 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Technically it is very good, very sharp, great detail. But I agree with King of Hearts that the composition just isn't working. The right-hand-side isn't helping, with the white tower block "looking out of the picture". Suggest you try cropping to include just the left 9000px and see how you feel about that composition. I think that improves it, but still perhaps not enough to go wow. I feel for you Tuxyso, because this was not an easy feat and I've had my share of mixed-opinion FPCs. -- Colin (talk) 12:05, 29 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support and Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Outstanding work overall—especially with the germ cells. Bézier quality is poor though—there are far more points than necessary, and lots of strokes have been converted to outline paths (with excessive numbers of points). Visible curve deformities in the Rectum/Anus area. The circle on the pharangeal/intestinal valve has seams and is for some reason, an outline instead of a stroke. Visible seam between the two halves of the intestine too—first half is under the inset shadow, the second half is above it. Expect for the overpointing, those are minor problems though.—Love, Kelvinsong talk 19:31, 1 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Kelvinsong: I will re-examine the picture in light of your comments, but I should point out that the difference you are seeing in the halves of the intestine are intentional: the left/ anterior arm of the intestine is "above" (from the viewer's perspective) the anterior gonad arm, and then around the middle of the animal it switches to the other "lower" side. For more clarity on this, consider seeing the Wormatlas page on hermaphrodites. Thank you for your comment and your support! KDS444 (talk) 01:05, 2 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What I meant is that the shadows contradict the z-layering of the shapes themselves. The first half of the intestine is drawn as above the gonads, yet it's under the inset shadow of the worm's body. The second half is drawn under the gonads but it's above the inset shadow. You can see where the shadow abruptly cuts off where the blue meets the purple.—Love, Kelvinsong talk 01:19, 2 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, I have now gone over the image and I believe I understand what you were talking about and have now corrected it: the rear portion of the intestine is now as transparent as the forward part, and the gray shadow can be seen through both. I have also fixed the seams around the p/i valve and between the sections of intestine. The overabundance of curve points appears to be an outcome of Adobe Illustrator CS6 converting the image from an AI file to an SVG-- I tried removing a few of these from the SVG file but then the curves end up needing major corrections all over again (this is not the only thing Illustrator did that wasn't asked for) and I decided the image was going to be better off and much more aesthetic if I did not mess with these any more than I already have done. But let me know if I addressed your points on transparency and on the seams. XOXO KDS444 (talk) 04:29, 2 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, that looks fine. There is a small rectangle next to the left end of the scalebar; I'd remove it myself but Inkscape makes the filesize explode for some reason. There is still a seam between the intestines but that is an RSVG bug (the renderer that mediawiki uses). There's a solution (bend out the edge of the lower element) but it's not applicable in this case (topology and transparency). Also the scalebar looks kinda big, can you shrink the text a little?—Love, Kelvinsong talk 14:41, 2 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fireworks over Ponte Vecchio
  • all by Martin Falbisoner (talk) 09:29, 30 July 2013 (UTC). A few weeks ago, I already successfully nominated another image of fireworks over Ponte Vecchio. Still, imo the current photo deserves a FP nomination in its own right too. The type of explosion and its color are significantly different, creating a distinct atmosphere.Reply[reply]

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Why is it worse in quality in your eyes? The WB is different and it's somewhat darker in appearance, but this doesn't make it necessarily worse as a whole.

      • Because the smaller aperture creates stronger star artifacts around light sources and also led to more brightening in post (I assume), which boosted the noise level and killed a few details.
