  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment since this nomination doesn't seem to be going anywhere fast, I thought I'd experiment with drawing out the patterns in the landscape with a b&w conversion. I've posted an alternative below. Johann Jaritz, if you hate it or don't want this added to your nomination then please feel free to remove the alt, or request the image be deleted. -- Colin (talk) 16:39, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thank you, Colin, I am fascinated by your idea and the endeavors you made. The B&W result is far better than the color version. The crop of the sky increased the quality as well. Perhaps there is a little chance now. --Johann Jaritz 05:06, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
Johann Jaritz, if you support the b&w version, you need to explicitly put a support vote against that version as each alt is counted separately -- but it is up to you of course. -- Colin (talk) 07:34, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Frame of the Angkor Wat ("Capital Temple") in a rainy day, former capital of the Khmer empire, today Angkor, Cambodia. Angkor Wat, built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century, is a temple complex and largest religious monument in the world. Originally founded as a Hindu temple for the Khmer Empire, gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple toward the end of the 12th century.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. It just doesn't inspire much for me. The framing is an interesting idea but it doesn't suit Angkor Wat IMO. And although it's probably an authentic view of the temple on a hazy rainy day, it isn't particularly aesthetic. The temple is too distant and the foreground brown and green grass comprises the majority of the frame. Diliff (talk) 10:49, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

    • @Laitche: Yes, there are so many FPs on the internet. The problem is: they are not uploaded at the Commons for several reasons (copyright, etc...). About this picture: I think it has wow: composition (the textures of the rocks, the reflection in the water, light) and place (a unusual FPC place). 😄 ArionEstar 😜 (talk) 13:22, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
      • I don't think so, it's a normal shot with f/3.5 and probably PL filter for me, and too small for this type of foto in 2015, the place is no matter in other words no wow, sorry. --Laitche (talk) 13:32, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think these tides (noted) looks quite unnatural... They are strangely blurred or something. Overprocessing? -- Pofka (talk) 21:50, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • @Livioandronico2013: and @Pofka:, it is blurred but on purpose, ans is only a result of long exposure (0.6 sec, check exif). The rocks are sharp (not razor sharp though). It's a common practice to add sense of movement in a picture, or to create one of those surreal photos with a "creamy" sea. Livio, if you don't like it, it's fine (I'm not very found of the composition), but you can't oppose based on blurriness alone. That would be missing the point. - Benh (talk) 21:59, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
    • These unnatural tides simply doesn't work for me. Maybe every person assess such things differently. Though, I like everything else about this photo as it looks quite unique, so... Symbol support vote.svg Weak support -- Pofka (talk) 22:06, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • The point is that is blurred (purpose or not) --LivioAndronico (talk) 22:08, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Then maybe abstaining from voting or just saying you don't like it would be better. Your vote sounds like it's a technical issue, but it's not. Pretty much as if you oppose a Monet because it's a bit blurry... - Benh (talk) 22:18, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

No, a dirty lens would create low contrast maybe (but even then, not usually noticeable), but not focus problems. At f/8, I don't think it is because of a low DoF either. Usually poor focus on one side of the frame is because there is a problem with the lens, perhaps a lens element no aligned correctly. Have you seen this problem with any other photos before?

    • Thanks, Laitche for your comment. The grasses are placed there on purpose. Classical foreground, midground, background composition. IMHO the photo would look worse without these grasses. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:30, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
      • I guessed grasses are one of elements but in this case light green (mid) ground is too little in this composition. If there are a bit more ground (midground), I would agree :) --Laitche (talk) 19:50, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per Jebulon. While this avoids the usual pitfall of shooting almost into the sun, there are still some small blown areas in the clouds, and I'm not sure that the composition delivers enough to offset that. I don't like the crop on the cloud, for one thing, and Laitche is correct about the paucity of ground. Daniel Case (talk) 01:30, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
  • I understand the intention of this composition. The trees in one line similar to a pearl necklace and the cloudy look interesting. But the tree on the left is disturbing the composition. The photographer should try a different placement here. --Wladyslaw (talk) 05:52, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

And the background is quite out of focus which I don't think works for this scene. A more shallow DoF might have actually worked better though, to emphasise the front of the train.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Have you ever been to Japan? It's not really possible to find this train without the "clutter", since the wires above and the signals on the ground are necessary for the train to function. As for the train being parked, my guess is that here it was slowly moving towards a station. It would take a very dedicated and skilled photographer to camp outside a high speed railway track and take the perfect panned shot during the one second that the train zips past at 300 km/h. dllu (t,c) 02:37, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
Then how do you explain this featured picture of a Japanese train that doesn't seem to have those issues? And BTW, overhead lines and signals are hardly issues unique to the Japanese rail system. Daniel Case (talk) 03:12, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'm not sure how the Sony Alpha 77 can produce such poor quality images. At ISO 400 I would not expect so much noise... probably it was underexposed and then postprocessed with greatly increased saturation levels. This certainly isn't one of the finest works that Wikimedia Commons has to offer, since File:JRE-TEC-E5_omiya.JPG is of a slightly superior quality. dllu (t,c) 02:37, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Benh: @Mile: I've never done focus stacking. I've shotten several different focus shot but every shot was different position by wind, so I think focus stacking is difficult for this kind of subject. If I had a chance I would try that :) --Laitche (talk) 09:38, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I know that. But that's why Feautered class is someway above ordinary shot, to bring some more. In this case, portion in focus is way to small to represent this flower. I am sure it can be done much better. Positioning can be solved with underlaying layers, go to stacking, select all layers, auto-align first, then do auto-blend. This can solve some, but often manual blending is necessary. --Mile (talk) 09:51, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Just curious, why is the quality only so-so? It's a very expensive 36 megapixel camera and lens on a tripod. To my eyes it looks very sharp without noise. The only technical defect I see is that the trees, swaying in the wind, get a bit blurred -- a trade off between car trails and noiseless ISO 100 versus sharp trees. And actually I did some post processing (it's an HDR photo from three exposures so that the roofs of the buildings aren't totally black and so that the lights aren't blown out), but I'm glad people don't notice it. Thanks! dllu (t,c) 21:59, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

If Yaco24 is prepared to upload a full-sized image (rather than one downsized to 1920x1280 HDTV) and save at a high quality JPG, then I may change my vote. There are simply too many lovely landscape photos nominated at 24 or 36MP that get nitpicked for sharpness/CA/noise so the standard is really quite high for technical quality in a landscape photo. -- Colin (talk) 16:34, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because Nice colors, but quality and size too low to be FP.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
✓ Done There was a slight pincushion distortion which is now corrected. For the verticals: I used the cables of the lamps and I was assuming homogenous gravity in the church. For the resolution: As usual I uploaded the full resolution of my camera. More is not available and I think, that ISO 125 is good enough for the situation. I shot on available light and refused the offer of Sister Dorothea to switch on the lights. There are some coloured lights visible where I have to mention, that it is not a chromatic aberration but the filtered light of the stained glass. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 13:04, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Let me take the opportunity to add some information: The church is part of the augustinian monastery in Essen. The stained glass windows show artwork of Johan Thorn Prikker which is considered to be one of the most important glass artists of 20th century. Influenced by impressionism, he pushed stained glass art from figural to ornamental. The windows in the monastery are his last work. From him is the word "Wie herrlich muss es sein, mit der Sonne selbst malen zu können" (How splendid it must be, to paint with the sun herself). Prikker had a deadly desease and it is believed, that the windows, made partly under horrible pains, depict "the antagonism of powers, the path from darkness and death to light and ressurection. The effects of the light is capturing the whole room into this movement; symbol of the big, eternal community of all released people in god." --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 04:41, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Weak oppose I liked the composition and looked at the image. Thought to myself "Nice image, but should have been shot from a tripod to avoid the high ISO". Then I looked at the exif and was in for a shock. It's a bit stunning how poor even the best Canons are at shadow recovery, but to mitigate this, HDR should have been used (the windows are also blown). The image has a lot of illustrative value for articles, but with respect to the quality, I do not think that it can really be among the best church interiors we have. I realize that perhaps I'm being a bit harsh, but the great view could be executed much better imho. --DXR (talk) 08:47, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting info.svg Info It was shot from tripod with mirror lock and remote control. Sure, HDR might have ended up in a better result, but I am not the big friend of HDR, that's why you rarely find a HDR among my photos. I am not sure, if everyone can imagine the light situation: It is a dim light in the church and all light is filtered through coloured glas. The very intense coloured light is also outshining the frames of the windows. It looks like CA, but it is not. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 10:17, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Well, I understand that the term HDR has been spoiled for many by those who use it to make tasteless/creative (pick your flavor) unrealistic adjustments that render images useless for wiki. But the logic behind the concept is sound and shadow noise and blown windows can be easily reduced or avoided using it, and with sensible processing the results won't look fake or bad. This is especially valid for cameras with sub-par dynamic range at low ISOs. I understand people who dislike HDR, but inside the church, it very often becomes an essential tool. --DXR (talk) 10:50, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I do not condemn HDR in general but sometimes, I am a little bit oldschool and in my opinion, it is often possible to get a reasonable result with a single shot. Well, there are prospects for another shooting in the monastery during midday sun (the colours are different then) and I will remember to try a HDR from same position. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 10:59, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I think HDR is usually required to get stained-glass in range. Here it could be better, it isn't too bad IMO, and I've seen too many HDR stained glass where the "Ow! Ow! My eyes hurt" bright white is rendered merely paper white. -- Colin (talk) 12:19, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I agree, the term 'HDR' is too often associated with really bad over-processed tone mapping that makes everything look muddy and weird, but it doesn't have to be that way - the result depends entirely on how strongly it is applied, the quality of the source image and what software is used to do it. To simply associate HDR so negatively is a bit like saying that a terrible photo taken with an expensive top of the line camera must mean the camera is terrible. And although the technical quality of this image is 'okay', it could have been much better. The noise levels of the shadows could have been as you would normally expect of ISO 100. Consider this recent image of mine. The exterior light wasn't as strong, but the interior was much darker so the contrast between highlights and shadows is likely to be similar. It was shot at ISO 320 which would normally result in quite a lot of shadow noise, particularly if pushed a lot. But because I used HDR with a 'slightly overexposed for shadows' bracket shot, I was able to get an image without any noise in any of the shadow areas. That simply wouldn't be possible with a single image, particularly with the low dynamic range of the Canon sensors. Diliff (talk) 18:38, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support (weak) While I agree with DXR that it could be much better, I don't find the noise is that dramatic, and it doesn't look like to come from shadow recovery (doing so on Canons usually gives you non aesthetic banding. See full size image). From a technical point of view, it's certainly at least as good -I'd say better- as many church interior which have been recently promoted and the lighting is just too good to miss. - Benh (talk) 10:02, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

    • Slaunger's away just now. I spotted that the other day but forgot about it till you mentioned it. Yes, there's something wrong with the JPG tags not matching the profile. Cccefalon, I had a look at some of your other photos and they have the same problem -- what are you doing that screws up the profile/tags? And see my Browser Test page for why AdobeRGB is best avoided -- about half of Wikipedia's viewers are using mobile devices, none of which are colour managed, so all display dull desaturated images if you use AdobeRGB. And only a tiny fraction of a percentage of viewers will have wide-gamut desktop displays that are actually capable of displaying any extra colours that AdobeRGB retains. -- Colin (talk) 11:34, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Yes, the colors are "real" (by that I mean that these are the colors that the camera captured), in post-production I only changed white balance and exposure controls, I did not use the individual color bars.

The camouflage is done by brown color and vertical stripes on their fur and her face and by hiding behind plants and shrubs. To defend their territory, the wildcat is guarding the lowest access to their territory. In their area there is a big tree. The fur of the wildcat has the same color and the same pattern as the bark of the tree. The wildcat lives on that tree, there it is protected through the camouflage of the coat.

First, there's a lot more green than brown in the image. And as a result I can still see the cat very easily. If the point of the image is to depict how the cat's coloring helps it conceal itself, it's not communicating that very well. And second, if that's the point of the image, then you're arguing more for it as a valued image, not an FP, since depicting its ability to camouflage itself and taking a picture with a level of "wow" adequate to FP standards here seem to be mutually exclusive if this is the best way of doing the former.

San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane (Rome) - Dome HDR
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Interiors
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The oval entablature to the dome has a 'crown' of foliage and frames a view of deep set interlocking coffering of octagons, crosses and hexagons which diminish in size the higher they rise. Light floods in from windows in the lower dome that are hidden by the oval opening and from windows in the side of the lantern. In a hierarchical structuring of light, the illuminated lantern with its symbol of the Holy Trinity is the most brightly lit, the coffering of the dome is thrown into sharp and deep relief and light gradually filters downwards to the darker lower body of the church.All by LivioAndronico (talk) 11:49, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Port and lighthouse overnight storm with lightning in Port-la-Nouvelle
Yes, nice idea!, the problem is the weather, you need be a storm hunter. --The Photographer (talk) 21:01, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
At least the exif gives the settings, and implies it's taken at night time (probably possible to achieve the same at day time with ND filter). But you're right, it's the easiest part and it doesn't say how to go after storm. - Benh (talk) 22:04, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
