Ferrofluid Magnet under glass.jpg
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created and uploaded by Gmaxwell - nominated by -- The High Fin Sperm Whale 03:29, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I nominated this once before, but sadly, it had one vote to few and failed. -- The High Fin Sperm Whale 03:29, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The ferromagnetic fluid itself could have better lightning. There is an area to the right, which appear completely black and with no discernable structure. The presence of the glass plate gives a better impression of what is actually going on than the existing FP from the same series of photos, but it is also distracting because it protrudes so much out in the foreground. Thus, I prefer the aforementioned illustration of the subject. --Slaunger (talk) 08:30, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I wanted to indicate the black area as an annotation, but somehow the annotation template code does not work. Maybe due to some renaming issues, because it has been nominated previously? --Slaunger (talk) 08:34, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The subject is really interesting and I guess it's kind of an interesting effect to show the magnetic field going through the glass. But there's something about this that makes it hard to tell what that is, I might not have guessed that was liquid without some of the above comments and actually going to WP ("Where's the fluid? Is it invisible? That green thing?"), where I found this already featured image that I think is easier on someone looking at it. --IdLoveOne (talk) 02:11, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I cannot follow any of those comments above. It's highly illustrative, and the fact that you can't tell it's fluid without reading the description makes it even more interesting. The background could be a lot whiter though. -- H005 20:04, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

No worries. Thank you for giving your opinion.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support One of the things I learned in Paris is that photographing Notre Dame is not an easy task. There is a myriad of obstacles in the way, or you have to get so close that you get horrible distortions. This is a pretty good image, high quality, composition is good, the lighting is very flat so it plays excellently on the subject. FP to me. --Murdockcrc (talk) 16:55, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose composition seems cut-off. integrating the Archbishop's Bridge or the Seine could be benficial. levels and sharpness should be reworked. please consider adding an annotation explaining the meaning of the locks, clarifying the last day of autumn (which can be different depending on you cultural background), linking to the articles of Notre Dame and the Archbishop's Bridge, using Template:Date (for people unaware of the french notion of december) and providing additional information on the equipment used by using Template:Photo Information. checking the image reveals repetitive patterns on the top - do i sense some kind of tinkering here? regards, PETER WEIS TALK 18:44, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Archbishop's Palace Bridge would be a disturbing foreground and out of the main subject.
  • The Seine is here about ten meters below a vertical wall. Impossible to add it.
  • Levels are sufficient to my eyes. Sharpness could maybe be better, indeed.
  • Explaining the meaning of locks is off topic and disturbing. Furthermore, I don't know nothing about this touristic practice.
  • The last day of autumn seems to be understandable enough. Autumn (or fall) is the season between summer and winter, and ends the 20 december, everywhere in the world. It is due to the equinox of the sun, but explanations are off topic here.
  • The photo is well categorized enough in "Commons". Please feel free to use it in articles.
  • There is no special french notion of december. December is a month, the last of the year, between november and january of the following year... Sunny in the southern hemisphere, it is cloudy, rainy and snowy in the northern one, generally speaking.
  • I don't have further informations about the equipment used, please see metadata.
  • I'm not sure I appreciate the word tinkering. As the frame was a bit tight above, because of my non-professional lens, I cloned some parts of the sky and added it at the top, to let the poor thing breathe. I used the GIMP. But please don't beat me, Master. Ich wusste nicht dass es verboten war.--Jebulon (talk) 13:18, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I have taken a look at the Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky category (author of the image) and all the images seem a bit oversaturated. Most probably due to the technique of taking the picture: Three-color process. If this is so the image can not be punished for the limitations of early photography.--Garrondo (talk) 17:26, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question How can one tell whether it's oversaturated? The reference here should not be whether it looks natural today, but how paper copies of it looked back in 1909. -- H005 18:16, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment a histogram analysis can do the trick. a more convincing attempt to check for oversaturation is the digital colour composite as reference to what we can see here. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 10:09, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose with sorry. I was to support, but this one is very similar to the already featured you mentioned, same girl, the same plate with strawberries is just in other hands, three girls instead of one, different background. I think the second one is better, and I disagree with featuring two pictures of the same subject. But obviously, I have nothing to say against the quality of a 1909 color picture. Thanks for make me (us ?) discovering this photographer I didn't know. Beware that the Library of Congress has digitalized about 2000 colored plaques from this author, and all could be feature-able. Should we ? If yes, in my opinion, maybe should we chose first other subjects from this author ... BTW, I have added a french translation and a link to the french WP in the creator template, and no, it is not "autochrome", but very interesting technics too.--Jebulon (talk) 18:46, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Regarding the subject of oversaturation. According to Libary of Congress photo description (this image comes from there), this image has been digitally colored from a glass negitive. As Garrando pointed out, saturation is a problem that can occour during coloring of pictures. Thus, I don´t belive that my voting on this photo has been too harsh, since it targets clearly the coloring process, but not the original.--Snaevar (talk) 02:38, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose this digital rendering has hardly anything to do with the impression of the original colour composite. mr frankhauser had a rather artistic attempt to render and adjust the digital versions of the glass plate negatives. some images benefit from this treatment but this certainly doesn't. you may notice the issue of colour saturation or the fixing of technical problems (aligning damaged glass plate negatives will result in green, red and yellow blemishes) - the house in the background has richer colours in the digital colour composite and got a sepia touch in this rendering. if looking closer on the head of this girl and comparing rendering and composite you might as well notice a effect similar to the outcome of CA. creating an own rendering of the b/w triple frames and performing a proper restoration is worth a try - alas very time consuming and not achievable for all 1902 pictures available for this method. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 10:09, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

The composition is a compromise between either a strictly symmetric composition with the main tower in the corner centered and a rule of thirds composition with the two towers aligned with rules of thirds vertical lines. For me this in-between choise does not work and makes it appear uninteresting. I think a better composition would have been something along the lines indicated with my annotation. --Slaunger (talk) 22:05, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm not really known with the valued image process and the differences. Mvg, Basvb (talk) 15:34, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
An valued image is a image that is best within a scope. To put this more simply, images are being judged in comparison with other images of similar objects. For example, this image would, presumably be compared with other railing photos on commons. This is different from Featured Pictures in that way, that Featured pictures are the best of commons, but not within a scope like Valued images are.--Snaevar (talk) 16:50, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Seven storied house, timber framing, end-on view. The timber framing is painted red, window shutters are blueish green. The apex of the building is topped by a corroded zinc turret with weather bird. The ground on which the building stands slopes down to the left. The entrance door is on the right. There is a clock and a sundial at the centre of the facade, and overflowing flower baskets underneath the zero and a half floor windows. A cobbled street curves into view from the right and passes in front of both the building and the water basin or fountain in front of it. Slim black iron bollards line that street; another timber frame house is just in view on the left.

Drawing of a fictional landscape with a figure in manga/anime style. The title of this image is: On the Edge.

  • I want to like this image, and I am a fan of most your work, technical illustrations, renderings, and Anime artwork. But I have several problems with this image. The rock texture on the left looks washed out and not very believable, the river has something going on with perspective, just at the waterfall it seems we look down on it at a steeper angle, the grass at the edge of the river looks smudged together (I'm missing some crisp edge here, the grass just blurrily blends into its own reflection). The gate looks unmotivated and just pasted into the landscape (connect it with some bushy grass around the posts maybe?). The waterfall itself lacks crispness. You may be going for a certain look here, but this has too much the feel of amateurish watercolor. --Dschwen (talk) 22:23, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Good work! But, as usual, I don't understand some things : Why manga woman rhymes with big tits? Why the landscape is also oversaturated (flickr kitsch) and why I cannot determine the educational value of this image? best regards --Citron (talk) 13:01, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Let me comment on this. So "big tits" and this image in general is some kind of archetypal manga drawing. And, I need to admit that one either likes this style (I'm not saying - manga in general) or not. Similar to one of the previous Niabot's nomination, where the "tilted camera" POV was disapproved, but was typical for manga on the other hand. Masur (talk) 14:08, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment "Why manga woman rhymes with big tits?" Since every time i present an image, with a girl that is less developed, someone claims to see child pornography. "Why the landscape is also oversaturated[?]" It's a colorfull drawing. Oversaturation is a technical issue, that does not apply to images like this one, since it isn't. ^^ --Niabot (talk) 14:24, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
      • There's a huge difference between "less developed" and "completely oversized". There's nothing proportional about her breasts, one is spilling over her arm, even—so what's the real reason? Why not draw something a little more realistic and less like misogyny? Maedin\talk 17:34, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
        • Do we need to discuss the size of breasts? For self education you can follow this link (rating:safe). I'm also willing to mention this deletion request: Futanari.png If you look at the last example, and also read the arguments, then we might start a discussion. ;-) --Niabot (talk) 19:58, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
          • No, we don't, particularly not here! Please disregard my comment. Maedin\talk 22:16, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
    • I'm myself an illustrator particulary influenced by the manga, IMO it is a style aimed primarily the young's. In fact, it's regrettable to mislead the young reader of Wikipedia with free and discrete pornography. I prefer your example because the choice is assumed. In this featured picture candidate, I find that the nudity isn't justified, as the landscape catches also our attention. When I talk about oversaturation, I talk in fact the choice of colors, IMO I find this little bit exaggerated for a sun so high in the sky. :) --Citron (talk) 12:27, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
      • I would tend to say that the majority of the audience from this style is over 18, since most of the commercial works are rated at least 16. Series created for the younger audience are an exception in numbers, even if some of them are very popular. Meaning that the number of works intended for an older audience is larger, even if the number of published copies is lower. Regarding the oversaturation: Since the image is not technically oversaturated, you can always reduce the saturation without artifacts. If it would be to less saturated, you can't increase saturation without visible errors. --Niabot (talk) 13:29, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I hope you know the difference between manga and anime style. All three would be more fitting to anime, but as you should know, the style has a wide variety. It shows, instead of the two previously mentioned examples, that the style isn't limited to simple outlines, lighting and backgrounds. --Niabot (talk) 21:58, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
      • I honestly don't care. The fact that is that this is a cartoon of a topless woman in a fantasy setting. It's not particularly good compared to other featured work, and no person outside Commons would say it's educational if they saw it. Steven Walling 08:29, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral just not really in the mood to vote in favor of something that isn't actually something. (Slight weirdness aside) I'm not really sure we need a drawing of a girl with her nipples hanging out, or I'd be more in favor if it was cultural or historic. Maybe I'm not being fair to anime and maybe in time it will gain more respect like those of other art forms. Although I do like the idea of users being able to nominate artwork of their own that isn't photographic, computer rendered or totally EV-related - not that EV arguments can't be made for this - if only to check out users' art, creativity and such. =) --IdLoveOne (talk) 22:05, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

      • Thanks for the info. I wasn´t quite sure how I should vote on a manga picture. Steven Walling´s vote made the most sense to me about what I should look for, but the reasoning behind the vote was based on Dschwen thoughts, as I agreed with him, and I still do in all aspects but one. I still think that the left bedrock could be sharper, but I don´t feel like that is reason enough to oppose the picture. I therefore change my vote to Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral.--Snaevar (talk) 00:54, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Sorry. Seems to be a problem with the (flash) interactive image viewer. The image does not have any such lines. As far as image quality is concerned, I am more than happy.

Pictogram voting info.svg Info Aleppo is more or less a "random bunch of houses", with several notable buildings, among which the citadel (from where the picture is taken), the Umayyad mosque and the souq (all annotated on the picture). I also tagged several other landmarks. I have made two panoramas of Aleppo, this one shows more interesting places. This is just for information, I totally understand that this picture can be considered not so featurable. --Eusebius (talk) 09:38, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The sharpness is not very high and small details on the legs, wings, antenna and the underbelly of the thorax were seemingly destroyed by denoising (ISO 1000 is likely too high for a EOS 50D) and/or a JPEG compression beyond a wise measure. I would have expected a higher perceived sharpness on such a downscaled image. Grand-Duc (talk) 14:55, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment just to clarify, the image has not been downscaled --Ken Billington (talk) 19:17, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Ah, then your licensing template ("If you would like to use, license, or purchase a high resolution copy of this image...") misleaded me on that point, I thought that your camera makes 15-MPx-images. What kind of lens did you use? (I'm not aware of a lot for Canon EF having the used 400mm focal length) :-) Grand-Duc (talk) 19:41, 7 January 2011 (UTC) And to explain my opposing vote somewhat: I guess that I'm spoiled by the excellent fokus stacked images of insects made by user:Richard Bartz, taking them as a benchmark.
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It's true that the images of Richard Bartz are outstanding but they are "macro" images. This image of the dragonfly was taken with a 400mm telephoto lens from a distance of approx 6 metre. Since the image was not full frame it was cropped but not downscaled. i.e. the size of the dragonfly in pixels is exactly the same as it when was photographed.

It does, but that's not how I mean. I mean I can't really see enough detail because the image is too small, I would've liked if it was bigger so I could see more features of the houses on the pier in the background for instance. But if you couldn't get the magnification or zoom for that it probably would've been better just to focus on a nearby object to photograph. --IdLoveOne (talk) 18:44, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Greyhound racing
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This is a panning shot of greyhound racing dog. Such a panning shot is much more difficult than a car panning shot as those dogs don't move as constant as a car. Those dogs don't just move horizontal (like a car) but also have very quick vertical movements - which is pretty annoying for a photographer :-) (Here you can have a look how such a race looks like.)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I don't believe such a picture to be featurable without a proper context in its description. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 15:49, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Needs details about the bus and location, and so on. Image documentation is inadequate for FP. Snowmanradio (talk) 22:04, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
    Some information about this accident can be found here. But in Russian. Well I would try to write description in English and in Russian. Sidik iz PTU (talk) 18:39, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support There was a traffic accident - A bus hit a w:utility pole. Pictures speak 1,000 words, so what more context do you need beyond your own eyes? --IdLoveOne (talk) 05:33, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support interesting picture about a traffic accident. i think, there aren't many pictures about this topic. alofok* 10:28, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Nothing special, no reason for nmination for FP. --Karelj (talk) 21:13, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral IMO this picture is a QP, not an FP. The image is lacking somewhat in sharpness, both at the busses and their surroundings. Perspective or the timing of the shot could be better as the picture is a bit misleading, becouse there are two guided busses in the background, but as the crashed bus blocks the gap between them from view, they seem to be only one.--Snaevar (talk) 21:16, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
    • I don't know the transportation in that town, but noting the difference in coloring, the main bus being green, I think it's just a regular bus? --IdLoveOne (talk) 00:15, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
      • There are one green bus and two blue trolleybuses on this photo. All regular. Sidik iz PTU (talk) 08:22, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
        • There is a slight misunderstanding going on. Guided busses are led by markings or wires, as those two blue busses are. Let´s look at the front window of the green bus, and look at where the end of the first blue bus is. Now, let´s compare that to the gap between the green bus and the first blue bus on the picture on photobus.mrsk.ru that Sidink linked to erlier. You would see that this same gap is much wider. Anyway, what I am saying is that little gap on this photo is confusing, as it gives the impression (or makes it look like) that it´s one big blue bus, but not two as it should be.--Snaevar (talk) 16:36, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
          • Photo from fotobus.msk.ru has been made by me too. I can upload it here but it looks less featured. Sidik iz PTU (talk) 16:55, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First off, I notised the line on Mona Lisa´s forehead. I checked the image on Louvre and it´s there too, so I suppose I can´t complain about that. However, this image is flaky. Also, the image is damaged at the top edge of the picture, and in a vertical line from the top to Mona Lisa´s head.--Snaevar (talk) 16:18, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The damage is on the original. I find the image is bit too dark to be featured. See the Louvre's own pictures: [3], [4]. I would support a lighter version. Yann (talk) 06:51, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree on that the damage is on louvre´s pictures as well. I do think however that the best comparision is to the painting itself, so I am going to wait and see if anyone on FP has allready seen this painting.--Snaevar (talk) 12:28, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I uploaded a lighter version, and I can now support. Yann (talk) 10:03, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Haven't been to the Louvre, but this version looks pretty good, age and restorations considered I think.. --IdLoveOne (talk) 18:46, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose this version has no metadata and no proof of being a photo taken at the louvre. would be nice if someone can verify this. uploading over the already existing nomination is not very cricket - please consider uploading an alternative version. opposing/supporting votes for the first nomination must not automatically oppose/support this new version. a higher resolution version taken with a high-end camera under correct lighting circumstances would be very beneficial. the current featured picture of the mona lisa provides similar quality in terms of resolution and detail - a different whitebalance, colour correction (depending on your pov) does not qualify for another featured picture. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 10:39, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
