  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Pity for the resolution, but the quality, educativeness and rarity of this free video gets my support! Diti the penguin 19:20, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I intentionally uploaded the lower resolution even as HD is available (because of people with low bandwidth). There is no problem to upload the HD version, you can watch it on Flickr for now. As there are close to no official rules for video now, I just did not know how to behave, whether to do low-res or high-res. --Kozuch (talk) 19:53, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
      • Low resolution (of course: low to a reasonable scale) is better, because of the bandwith. Remember that you aren't very likely to put an 800px wide video into an article. And even if you insert it as, say, 480px, it won't increase the speed of loading anyway. Wolf (talk) 20:06, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
        • Well, so I suppose current 640×360 pixels is not a real low-res for a video. If someone thinks this cant get featured at this resolution, I will upload HD.--Kozuch (talk) 20:15, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
      • I suspect in the long term we'll want high res, just as we do for photos. It can't be that hard to produce scaled down versions, but it's impossible to scale up. 99of9 (talk) 22:13, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think the video is not too long and doesn't need to be cut, is less than 30 seconds, and the first two are precious: you can hear the bird and begin to understand what is the subject --Phyrexian (talk) 05:15, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Right, its very educational and interesting, but this is commons and not wikipedia. And for videos the same rules should apply as for pictures. The composition is rather boring --Simonizer (talk) 20:04, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
    • I think you completely miss a point here. There is no language and that means this video is nicely useful accross various projects and languages, that makes it uniques for a Commons (featured) candidate.--Kozuch (talk) 21:26, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I don't think you can see anything well enough - the bird is tiny, and we can't even see it feeding the chicks, just going into the box. It's nice, but not quite wow enough. --Silversmith Hewwo 21:36, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment That looks like blackberry to me. Also, this picture was only just nominated for FP, doesn't it kind of render the voting process pointless if people spend time voting to feature a picture only to have it instantly delisted? --Silversmith Hewwo 21:53, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Also, if this is a Rubus leaf, then apparently it is very educational since it seems the current images we have don't give a good enough idea of what the leaves actually look like. --Silversmith Hewwo 07:37, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The fish that one of the cormorans carries in its beak makes the picture exceptional enough to excuse the slight quality problems. -- JovanCormac 18:01, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
You call this right wing of the left bird a "slight quality" problem!? --AngMoKio (talk) 10:44, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I think most of the issues brought up on previous vote on other version of this image are still valid. Also this version introduced new errors: why the bird on the left has its left wing cut at its base? It wasn't like that on the original, so it's probably bad photomanipulation - and that's another point to oppose for, as I'd like to vote for a photograph, not a clone stamp. --Leafnode 18:53, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
It is not "bad photomanipulation", it is good photomanipulation, and retouched template|manual cloning was added to the image, as soon as it was uploaded. I wanted to see, if people, who have not seen the original image will notice that "bad photomanipulation" , but I guess you had to spoil all the fun. Oh well...Pictogram voting delete.svg 
Yeah, cutting off real part of a wing is a very good photomanipulation. If not for this, it could have been quite good, but as I've seen the previous nomination, it wasn't any 'fun' for me. --Leafnode 09:08, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Sorry but this is for sure not a good photomanipulation. It is just another photo where you try to pimp up your photos with obvious post-processing - it really gets annoying. And to tell now that it was just a fun-project to see if people recognize it makes it even worse. FPC is not the place to do such things...you can do that at "Photography Critiques". Sometimes i wonder if people actually look at the photos they vote for. --AngMoKio (talk) 10:15, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
really? The only difference that I added retouched template, the other person did not. And how about that sea otter File:Sea otter nursing02.jpg that actually was that sea otter File:Sea otter nursing.jpg once again with no retouched template added to the image. These are only two examples of who knows how many. And how about this nomination of yours,AngMoKio? The image was taken in ZOO, but presented as it was taken in a wild, while my question about ZOO info was ignored. What have I done? Did I add an extra ring to Saturn? Did I add a new crater to the Moon? Did I changed a historic image? No, no, no. I added the wing that was cut off in the original. What has changed? Still one bird is running after another, that has the fish. It was not obvious post-processing. Even Leafnode said, if he/she did not see the original, he/she would not have never guessed. The nominaton was withdrawn. If you want to comment you could continue to do it at my talk page please.--Mbz1 (talk) 11:02, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm not as familiar with Canon's models, but my point is that video recording capability is not unusual at all in modern cameras.

Christmas is Resilient
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Barry Markowitz, FEMA - uploaded by Multichill - nominated by Sarcastic ShockwaveLover -- Sarcastic ShockwaveLover (talk) 12:03, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Now, I know not everyone is going to agree with me (hey, what else is new? :P) but I think that this image has the potential, not only to be featured, but to be Picture of the Day, December 25th 2009. Why? Well, in the past, we've only ever had one christmas themed image for POTD, and that was more of celebrations during Christmas than the event itself. So I decided that I'd try and get a festive FP for Commons. For 2 weeks I went looking through the various yuletide categories, examining hundreds of images of lights, decorations, presents, food, people and trees, seeking out the biggest and best for Christmas day. I found many grand and expansive images, but it seemed as if each of them had been specially crafted to look great in thumbnail, but horrible at full size. Onward and upward I pressed, discarding 12Mpx images left and right, determined to bring home the perfect picture. I had tried every search term I could think of, and had almost given up, when at the bottom of the screen, I spotted a tree. Not a large tree, not a tree draped with lights and streamers, in a city square or surrounded by rosy faced children; but a small tree, decked with simple red bows, perched atop an errant boulder, with a somewhat elderly gentleman holding it steady. Having already convinced myself that my search had been fruitless, I nonetheless clicked on the link, idle curiosity and utter exhaustion piling atop one another to see just why this man looked so proud of what was a very small and obviously weathered and threadbare plastic Christmas tree. "What possible reason" thought I, "could someone have for being happy with that scrawny thing?" It was then that I happened to glance at the caption. That tree, that small, weathered tree had been sucked out with the storm surge of en:Cyclone Olaf, a Category 5 cyclone that struck American Samoa in February 2005. Reading the article, I realised that the gentleman in the picture, Ioasa To'o, was from Tau Island, the hardest hit area by the storm. This is a man who quite possibly lost most of his worldly possessions, had certainly seen friends have all they owned ruined, and had his home island devastated. It was then that I realised I had found what I had been searching for. This was what the spirit of Christmas is about. Not gifts, or carols or lights, not even about trees. What this photo says to me is 'hope'. Even amongst disaster, the true spirit of Christmas, embodied in this tiny, unassuming tree, shines through. Just this once, I'm ignoring quality all together. For a picture like this, I wouldn't care if it was 100 pixels by 400 pixels. Wherever you may be, a Merry Christmas to you all. May it be as insightful as mine has been.

The surf on the right hand side was not post processed at all. It looked like this in the real life. I tried to come up with something I could compare it to, and I thought it looked as ink, maybe black ink. So here's the whole image, not for voting, but just to see

  • I'm not saying the entire text was cropped, but there is definitely a crop. Regarding the windows, there is a dark pillar just below and to the left of the windows on the original, which has been cropped out. I can post comparison crops if you really want, but I think it will be clear to you if you bring them up side by side and zoom to 100%. --99of9 (talk) 05:18, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Might have taken out a couple of extra pixels just in order to get the crop vertical. The difference is barely visible to me, but if that's what you mean rather than the text then no objection; you're entitled to your opinon. :) Often the camera orientation and original printing is off by a fraction of a degree. So it's rotation that tends to cause that. Durova (talk) 20:30, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Contrast Balance or balance of composition? --Wilfredo Rodríguez (talk) 16:14, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
I just mean it would focus the mind on the man without removing so much of the background. Balance of the mind! At the moment his figure appears from one half of the picture. This would mean that you imagine each side of the picture is as interesting as the other but when you look at the other side all you see is this bike with half a board or something its way. The fruit and even the bike are interesting but the board looks unnatural so it takes your attention to figure out what it is and when it is still just some weird old board you don't know what it is... if you moved him further toward the center he would take the full frame and the board thing wouldn't even be in the shot. The legs of the board are fine but the board thing itself wrecks it. I thought about this for a while! GLuck Smiley.gif ~ R.T.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg InfoThere was an Image at Astronomy Picture of the Day.I wanted to take a similar image, but with no mery-go-round. I secured my camera at a chair that was able to turn, took it to back yard, put it under a tree, and turned it around. The picture was not processed. I believe, if a similar image was good enough to be featured at APOD, the nominated image should be good enoug to be featured here too :) So let's see...

    • Too bad this is not NASA site and this picture contains no explanation of why it's so valuable. --Leafnode 21:22, 2 Decmber 2009 (UTC)
      • Well, what I tried to say that IMO if three NASA sites felt the image is valued enough to feature it, to oppose for not being valued sounds kind of strange. The creator of the original image used it in children book to illustrate earth rotation for kids, for example. Kids read Commons too. At first I wanted to upload APOD image here, but it was copyrighted. So I ended up taking one myself. I provided the link to APOD image in my image's description. Besides everything else the image also illustrates rotation. There are very few images in that category. Besides the value of the image is in its uniqueness. IMO it is valuable more than enough.--Mbz1 (talk) 23:45, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Weak oppose, but oppose. To oppose, or not to oppose, that is the question. Yes, the APOD is valuable. Yes, I would suport the APOD. Yes, the APOD is better - the swirl does not cover the entire picture, and that's why it can be used for the abovementioned educational purposes. Wolf (talk) 12:56, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
I am not sure I understand why because in APOD image "the swirl does not cover the entire picture" it is better for educational purpose. the star trails that the image is used to illustrate do cover the entire picture. IMO my images looks more as the real one than APOD does.--Mbz1 (talk) 13:29, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
Let me parahrase: I believe the movement should be shown in relation to something, the foreground or the background. Wolf (talk) 13:38, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes, it would have been nice, if it were possible in such a particular situation, but it is not, unless I am not to do "a bad photo manipulation" :) IMO the only difference between APOD image and mine that APOD image has some blown-out highlights and mine does not.--Mbz1 (talk) 14:24, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

This appears to have been shot on Kodak sheet film, which was higher quality but far more expensive than other processes that were invented after the war. The Alfred Palmer photos from training operations in Kentucky are the only color images I have ever found of World War II tanks in operation during their useful lifespan.

The aizkolari (axe-man) nicknamed Luxia ("long one") on a trunk-cutting bet. Year 1949, Deba, Gipuzkoa (Basque Country). The tree on the image was cut by a group in Nabarniz, Biscay, Basque Country and it's 2,1 meters tall. Joan Joxe Luxia Narbaiz ("Long Joan Joxe Narbaiz") accepted a bet of 50.000 pesetas if he was able to cut it. Finally, due to the extreme hotness he couldn't do it. Luxia was from Azkoitia. Luxia aizkolaria Airoko-Pagoaren ebaketa erronkan zehar. 1949. urtea, Deba, Gipuzkoa. Irudiko zuhaitza Bizkaiko Nabarniz udalerriko koadrila batek bota berria zuen.

Jpeg artifacts come from unskillful handling of the scanned image. The photograph was originally taken on a negative plate large enough to rule out any grain we can talk about.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Composition is awkward, imho. I believe that for architectural pictures, one of the following has to be chosen : EITHER a perspective-corrected view, where the strait lines are shown as straight as possible, and as parallel as possible ; OR a "fish-eye" view, which can be stunning for very large buildings or collections of buildings, where all the horizontals end up being shaped like sine waves. This picture sits uncomfortably in between and looks tilted and/or crooked. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 15:50, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm sure you've noted that the left and right wings of the building are different which explains any asymmetry you see. I tried a few projections and I believe this is best: all verticals are vertical, and the building base is at eye height and hence is horizontal, the higher horizontals do become curved - but that is necessary to bring the height of the chapel into the frame. I find fish-eye almost unrecognizeable. --99of9 (talk) 20:22, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
  • If you're talking about the chapel vs. the other wing on the right hand side : I completely agree that the chapel is both higher and longer than the other wing. If you're talking about the central wing itself : I'd think that it is pretty symetrical, with all due respect to the age of the building. Thus, the roofline sloping more on the left than on the right is surprising. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 23:42, 4 December 2009 (UTC).

This definitely has encyclopedic value as it conveys a) the scale of the place as effectively for someone like myself who's been there as for someone who hasn't and b) it shows the way most people commonly visit it, in 4WD pickup trucks driven by Bedouins. And it's also a great photo of Jabal Rum, the second-highest mountain in Jordan. However, again from personal experience, I know just how brilliant the colors there can be, and I've got some pics that I hope to make FPC candidates eventually myself. This does not fully convey that. Daniel Case (talk) 17:15, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

That nomination, however, was stopped on the 5th day as the corresponding rule imposes, however, this was due to the fact that comments were made about how the image should be improved. Obviously, in such a situation no civil user would cast a vote, since the image thay were currently seeing was just temporary and awaiting improvement.

Only three tides out of those 8 were at more or less good time. The tides that happen after 4 p.m.are not good, the sun is way too low for taking images. The sun sets at around 5 p.m. in December in San Francisco. Now please look at June month. You will see June had 10 tides that were low enough, from which only 2 were during day hours.The sun rises at around 6 a.m. in San Francisco in June. Wind and waves might also prevent one from taking such an image.--Mbz1 (talk) 22:57, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

      • It is not a matter of post-processing, it is a matter of not shooting an insect at 1/40 second. Artificial sharpening only destroys details. inisheer (talk) 11:11, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
        • If the insect or the camera was resting on something less sturdy I woudnt have tried 1/40. If I cant shoot att f16 I dont know how to get sufficient DOF for a portrait to be interesting to look at. Here is a f/11 1/125s try. I prefer the f/32 try to that. I just think there is too little in focus there to be interesting to look at when under f/11, and the shadows too hard in full sunshine. At the moment I didnt have an external flash and I dont think the built-in flash would have helped much. I am very open for any suggestions of how to improve in the future. Please let me know. It might also be the cheap closeup-lens I used in front of the macro lens that ruins it. --Korall (talk) 11:59, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose, the illustration is neither "notable in its own right", nor "of high artistic merit", "of high historic merit" or "of high illustrative merit" (see "Artworks, illustrations, and historical documents" under "Commons:Featured picture candidates->Formal things"). --Kjetil_r 07:33, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Insulting the memory of the 6 million murdered in the Holocaust will cause a lot of damage to this project. It is enough that this garbage is in commons, but to put in the main page? How dare you? Unfortunately I can'y say that I'm surprised considering the nominator. Indeed, it is a very sad day for commons. Kooritza (talk) 08:13, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Why? Let me tell you why, because that image is not only propaganda, it is propoganda of hate, but yet it is not even added to category "propaganda". Why it is propaganda? There's absolutely nothing that let one to compare the wire of the concentration camps of The Holocaust and West Bank security fence. The former was built to prevent innocent victims from getting out, the latter was built to prevent terrorists from entering in. that cartoon is highly offencive to many people, who lost relatives in the w:The_Holocaust, who are w:The Holocaust survivors.Could you imagine featuring Muhammad cartoons? Why that man in cartoon is crying? He probably cries because he just lost a son, who committed homicide bombing inside Israel. One of the biggest reasons for nominating that was retaliation to me personally. And besides technical quality of that is absolutely horrible. What in the world is sticking out of the man mouth (white from one side, and red from the other)?

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This picture shouldn't get nominated here. This topic is far too controversial. Religious conflicts will never get solved and mostly (like in this conflict too) both sides act inhuman. "Imagine there's no countries - It isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too" - John Lennon Imagine --AngMoKio (talk) 10:02, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
I agree it should have never been nominated here, but I do not agree that conflict is "religious". It is not about religion for Jews, it is about surviving. And besides look at the other parts of the world. Don't you see what's going on around? If we do not stop terrorism now, in few years, we well end up building security fences around our own countries to prevent terrorists from killing our own kids.--Mbz1 (talk) 10:50, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - propaganda or not, somehow I quite doubt if it follows the quality guidelines. As for the propaganda... gee... as far as I know, the Hamas rules in Gaza strip, and if there are still refugee camps there, it's because they serve their intentions... --Yuval Y § Chat § 10:08, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
