  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is definitely a QI, but I don't see this as FP. Sorry. Just to much of this road in the image and as it is dominating that much it is ruining the wow factor for me. It would had been better when there would be bigger focus to the sea. Maybe a crop would also help here. Kruusamägi (talk) 23:18, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I would recommend a crop on the left for two reasons: 1) the pole is a bit distracting at that position; either leave more space to the left (not possible in post) or remove it completely; 2) currently, the road is too centered. --King of ♠ 00:31, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for the comments. In summer, the trees are much more disturbing (thanks to the leaves) and the church is surrounded by centuries-old trees (the first trees were planted at the cemetery in the 1710s), and there is no better angle. I think it's very relevant to show both the church and the cemetery in a single image, and a good illustration of the separate articles on the cemetery in Norwegian and Swedish Wikipedia. Snow is a part of life in Stockholm, sometimes we have snow from November to March. Personally, I like the beautiful winter light and colors here.--ArildV (talk) 22:17, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Due to foreground shadow, sorry. --Ivar (talk) 09:12, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - hmm, actually the shadow isn't that evil to me because it harmonizes with the dark nordic sky what makes the overall contrast still OK. However, let's be honest, it's "just" a good-quality photo of a building. For an FP, one may (and should!!) demand some more - here we have a nice winter scene, but a rather ordinary one; some of your other winter photos (like this one) have much more of special, as you probably will agree. Let's keep COM:FP a place for that special pictures. --A.Savin 22:58, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

    Currently, quality problems are visible in the 1,280-preview. It might be possible to get decent quality with downscaling and additional highpass-filtering and sharpening, and a closer look at the banding problems in the sky.

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Very nice lighting and composition, but the face should be sharper. The bottom part of the image is much sharper. Is it possible to have a higher resolution version? This one is rather small, and I think that's "one point less" for the image. Is it a studio shot? (in the museum). --Kadellar (talk) 22:29, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
    Unfortunately I couldn't bring my telephoto lens in the museum so I had to take it with a mid range zoom: in order to "use" the curtain as a black background I had to stay far and then crop, so this is the higher resolution available. --Jaqen (talk) 23:52, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

    The underexposure is fully fixed and the problem with backlight is at least a lot less problematic than before. The editing has created some noise issues, but nothing too bad. I won't oppose, but I still think the lighting conditions are just not optimal for showing the cacti, and the corrections unavoidably create a slightly artificial appearance of the photo, therefore: Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral. --Julian H. (talk/files) 14:47, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Weak Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The lighting was not the best for the shot, and the usage of the flash (see EXIF) gives and artificial effect (brigther areas there were you'd would expect rather darkness). There is also some noise on the cactus in the foreground and the sharpness of the vegetation behind the cactus is not convincing (probably due to agressive denoising, since the first version was better on this). Furthermore, I agree with Juan in both comments, the cactus hide the highest summit of the range of mountains in the background, which is disturbing and affects the compositon, and the green channel is oversaturated. I think that the idea overall is good but the result is not a FP to me, sorry. Poco a poco (talk) 11:18, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

    • I would suggest to look more precisely: a) From a compositional viewpoint a front view is much better than a side view. There is one clear diagonal line going through the photo. I spent a whole day at the area around yellow Lady's-Slipper and believe be a side view is VERY boring from a photographic viewpoint. b) a central characteric of this flower is shown much better in a moderate front view: The stamen over the "slipper" has the function to attract insects that fall into the "slipper" and pollinate the flower during living the shoe. Isn't it striking that all photos on EN-WP or this botanic descriptions are front-views? c) Light: For me it is a nice backlit situation which brings out the texture of the flower very well. I respect your assesment but I think it was a bit hastily. --Tuxyso (talk) 10:24, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Two remarks: 1) I think the composition is too centered. 2) Did you use a polarizing filter? The sky's color changes from light to dark blue, and I'm guessing it's caused by a polarizer since the focal length is 17mm (more likely to happen to wide-angle) and the exposure settings are 1/80s at f/8 (about 1-2 stops slower than ordinary daylight). --King of ♠ 10:06, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the comments. Would cropping off the left two boats help? I did consider it but the Isle is centred in the middle of Lamlash bay so an off-centre position might have less EV. I can't remember about the polariser as this was last summer but I'm aware of the problem it can cause and agree this might be the reason. I could see if some Lightroom adjustment can balance the sky better. -- Colin (talk) 10:16, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Technically good portrait. The reflections in the eyeball could be removed and the highlights at the glossy forehead could be reduced. I'm not convinced by his pose (especially the slanting shoulder), the visible bits of his right ear and the rather prominent first button of his shirt. No wow. And before we start discussing what a wow-factor in portrait photography should look like (again), have a look into Commons:Featured pictures/People. Portrait photography remains one of the toughest genres, especially here on FPC. Regards, Peter Weis (talk) 19:02, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
    Most of the pictures in the category may be wow but are no portraits. Regarding the minor issues, we have to keep in mind that this is a person who can only spend a few seconds for photographers (which is my wow). You can hardly prepare them nor change anything during the shooting. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 19:14, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
We aim for evaluating the image on FPC, not the effort/hardship for its making. I don't think the time frame matters at all in this case - it is a self-made limitation and could easily be circumvented by asking the politician for a private photo session or extend the time per photo ratio in the project. The project's current mass processing is unlikely to encourage perfectionism or an eye for detail. Regards, Peter Weis (talk) 19:33, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
I know what you do; and I evaluate lots of FP's in this category as worse than this one which is why I nominated it. Surely, you can disagree, I neither mind nor care because evaluation is unobjective, related to the people who participate in this evaluation, their personal mood, understanding of FP, etc. pp. (which you can perfectly see here in different opinions on this very photo). But, imo, looking at all circumstances how a photo was taken can at least improve your understanding of it, isn't it? Besides, I strongly doubt the easiness—a Minister-President will not take more than 5 minutes for such photography (which he did for us). Plus, we can discuss whether photos have to be perfect to be featureable (what all Wikipedia articles are not) or if they should just copy the reality (why in fact should I have removed the button or cut off his ear to make a, in your opinion, perfect photo?). But that would take us too far away. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 19:56, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Apparently you do care, hence your reply in the first place. Our guidelines state "Digital manipulation for the purpose of correcting flaws in a photographic image is generally acceptable, provided it is limited, well-done, and not intended to deceive." Furthermore "Extensive manipulations must be clearly described in the image text [...]" Some issues as expressed above (highlights at the forehead and eyeball reflections) could be easily edited, complying with our guidelines. Don't get me wrong: You shouldn't "remove" the button or "cut off" his ear. I didn't propose photoshopping them away and even if you would chose this option you could do so by adding {{Retouched picture}}. A more sophisticated pose could have prevented these issues and within thoughtful consideration and preparation lies the quality I consider decisive for a Featured Picture. I don't think that this has to be an either-or-discussion: a perfect (insert your definition here) photo is capable of displaying reality. It's always refreshing to see this kind of debate sprouting its shoots from opposing votes such as mine, for in the end it remains a subjective verdict. Regards, Peter Weis (talk) 22:56, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Ofc, I reduced the highlights and reflections. If you think that it's not enough, do not hesitate to improve my picture. I would be very grateful. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 23:20, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support For me this is a fine portrait with good pose and composition.

    • I agree with you. A lot of other portrayals on FP are much worse than this one. Espcecially (sorry Peter Weis) the one of Angela Merkel. Nearly everything is wrong there (light, level of details, composition, expression, massive NR). The photo here shows a State Premier of a German state, perfectly photographed. And I also agree with DerHexer: A State Premier (Ministerpräsident) has for sure not many time for comprehensive preparitions. "Asking the politician for a private photo session" is not an option in this case :) --Tuxyso (talk) 08:28, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per other. Eine Softbox links und rechts mit richtig eingemessenem Licht, ergibt zweifelsohne ein perfekt belichtetes, scharfes Bild, aber leider kein Exzellentes. In dieser Situation muss sich der Fotograf nur um das Motiv/Person kümmern und dann dürfen solche Sachen wie oben erwähnt nicht passieren. Man bürstet auch die Schuppen von der Jacke wenn sie da sind, den bei dieser Auflösung sieht man nun alles. Der Herr Haseloff wäre ihnen für diese Aufmerksamkeit dankbar gewesen. Was mich auch noch stört, ist die unterschiedlich Darstellung der beiden Schultern, entweder beide angeschnitten oder beide komplett sichtbar. Bei weniger schräger Schulterstellung, ergibt sich auch kein so heftiger Größenunterschied der Schultern. Leider ist mein Englisch so schlecht, dass ich meinen Kommentar in Deutsch schreiben muss um Missverständnisse zu verhindern. Ich denke du hast nun viele Tipps bekommen und das nächste Mal klappt alles besser. --Ritchyblack (talk) 06:57, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
    Die Schuppen hatte ich eigentlich weggestempelt. Aus irgendwelchen Gründen waren sie nach Abspeichern wieder da. Kann ich natürlich noch weiter entfernen.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support — High EV. However,
  1. The transparent background can be a problem on many of the non-English Wikipedias. On many of the non-English Wikipedias, containers such as thumbnails have a grayish background which show through your image and give it a dull appearance. For example, here is a link to your image in a thumbnail container on my sandbox on the German Wikipedia. The same applies to most of your other SVG images, many of which are very beautiful and high EV.
  2. There are a number of shaded rectangles that don't match the text in steps 1, 2, 3, 4, 8 which should be altered or removed.
  3. The image is not smartphone friendly. I don't have the statistics ready to cite, but a very large fraction of Wikipedia usage is via smartphone. It's OK on a standard tablet, but hard to read on a mini-tablet. In the future, try to remember the diversity of devices on which people will access your images.
  4. Going along the same lines, this is not a low-vision-friendly image, especially the light green lettering in the middle.
  5. Despite all of these reservations, I'm still giving my support, since I know that you will do your best to fix the issues, if not necessarily here, but certainly in your future productions!
Stigmatella aurantiaca (talk) 14:54, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
  1. When I first started to illustrate for wikipedia, I put white backgrounds on everything, for the same exact reasons you mentioned. However, I read several guidelines that recommended that we use transparent backgrounds (and several complaints against another illustrator for using opaque backgrounds), so now I use transparent backgrounds for almost everything, reserving opaque ones for pictures that need fake alpha masking, as the mediawiki renderer doesn't support true SVG alpha masks, and space images, which take a black background. If it's that important, I could upload an opaque version, though I would rather not as I am trying to reduce "version proliferation" which makes it very difficult to issue updates and improvements. 1 language × 2 opacities = 2 versions isn't too bad, but think 2 opacities × (3 languages + 1 numbered) × 2 editable/ineditable versions × 2 titled/untitled = 32 versions to create, upload, interlink, and update.
  2. I own a smartphone, and I know all too well how frustrating web browsing can be on one. However, for this picture, the only way this would work is breaking open the circle and laying it in a linear sequence (ruining the "cycle" element). I am sorry, but it is hard enough to convert something three-dimensional to two-dimensions, going down to one dimension is simply too restrictive.
  3. That's a stylistic thing ;)
  4. The green text in the light font is simply a footnote, and I might even remove it—I'm not completely sure what the source meant about chloroplast DNA replication.
Anyway, thanks for your support—Kelvinsong (talk) 19:33, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
  1. I'd be interested in reading the guidelines that you mention. Guidelines can be changed, although I know, from personal experience, that the MOS is maintained by a bunch of language lawyers who can be exceedingly intolerant of opposing points of view. By any chance can you point me to the proper subsection, chapter, verse of the vast, sprawling Manual of Style? Thanks!
  2. I understand, which is why I wasn't asking you to attempt the impossible. Stigmatella aurantiaca (talk) 20:41, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
After some searching, I finally managed to find it in Help:SVG, under the FAQ section. I also found that example of someone opposing an illustration for an opaque background, though it's on a FPC from 2007. I suppose that Help:SVG guideline should be taken with a grain of salt—it also says you shouldn't use Gaussian blurs because the renderer won't render them (Not true, the renderer is *very buggy* with the blur, but it renders them . . . sometimes.). Still, I think a better approach would be to be able to specify the background in the T
