3D sonogram of fetal spine
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Moroder - uploaded by Moroder - nominated by Moroder -- Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 14:47, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 14:47, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think it is a refreshing topic and type of image, which I think we should be open for. I think that the metadata, which are shown in the screen dump would be better captured in the file page. That is, I would crop the image, such that we only see the image from the scan and the remaining data are transferred to the file page. Yes, I know this will tecnically decrease the resolution of the image, but I trust (hope) the reviewers can see that it does not change the informational value of the image. One could add a scale to the cropped image such that the proportions are directly available. Also to present it in a form where the information is more broadly understood. For instance I see a length scale of 6.7 cm mentioned. But which proportion of the image does that correspond to (length or height)? Quite some other numbers and data are mentioned but their interpretation is not self-explanatory. Moreover, to increase the value of the image I think it would be worthwhile to describe on the file page in greater detail what kind of equipment has been used, if any kind of special processing has been applied to generate the image. Last but not least, the nominated image is closely related to another image, and it is my feeling that in combination, they can be used to provide a three-dimensional view of the fetal spine. However, it is not clear for me how that works, and I think there should be some kind of guidance for the viewer. I showed the image to my wife, who has a medical background and some experience with ultrasound, and she tells me it is a very good image, especially how well the individual spine taps(?) are resolved in the fetus. --Slaunger (talk) 17:34, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I will support iff better technical information is provided on the file page, essentially per Slaugner. --Claritas (talk) 11:24, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - per above discussion. Very educational and unusual picture. --Claritas (talk) 16:56, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Have you upsampled it to make it reach the 2 Mpixel guideline? Please do not. Upsampling does not add any information. Regarding crop, my personal preference would be to remove all of the black frame only keep the actual image frame. Yes, I know this means fewer pixels, but the information is the same. --Slaunger (talk) 17:14, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Yes, as stated in the retouching template. This has been requested in a former discussion about this image on the size of the image by some reviewers. I was not very happy to do it as I know that FP is not strict about the 2 MP rule as is QI. To tell you the truth I do feel that there is not much understanding from the reviewers for medical images. I think IMHO reviewers should judge the images for their visual impact and for the information value they provide to an encyclopaedia.--Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 14:25, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
  • I am sorry to hear that. Where has that been discussed for this image?? If someone has really asked you to upsample the image, it is something I strongly disagree with. I think you are right that we reviewers do not (yet) have much understanding of medical images. Please do not give up, and give the community some time to understand the domain. Do you know COM:VIC? That is a forum focusing on the value of an image and less on the resolution. I think you should have kept the cropped revision by Wetenschatje. -Slaunger (talk) 20:48, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very interesting, new, unusual and with a very high encyclopedic and educational value. We must never forget to keep our minds open. The original size should not be a problem in this specific case ("mitigating circumstances" or something like that...). In my humble opinion, the better version is the very first one, which shows the image as it comes out from the "tool", because that's part of the whole picture and of the "subject" (a medical image), and it gives special informations, not only technical, but visual too "So looks a picture made by an ultrasonography machine" (encyclopedic informations), regarding this specific point I disagree with Slaunger. After that, the uploader is free (and encouraged) to give explanations and other informations/translations in the file description page. Anyway, I really hope a promotion for this one, which is really -at least- different. --Jebulon (talk) 01:14, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Ggia's nom below reminded me of this shot, which I think captures well the atmosphere of that part of Istanbul. -- Benh (talk) 21:20, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Even do not know what to start with: either with a noisy sky with some dust spots, or with an unfortunate lighting, or with a bad crop, or with a cut-off main subject. Benh, you're opposing so many good images, how could have you supported this one... Oh, I see, you are the one who took it :-)--Mbz1 (talk) 06:41, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Image being good or not is matter of taste, and you're right that as author, I will always be biased. But if I nominate, it means I like it, so I support. On objective criterias, this one is noisy, but it's unscaled down 18mpix pic, which is mitigating IMO. But maybe I should do something about that. The lighting is not unfortunate in my opinion. Although we can see the sky is dark, sun did lit the scene, giving some contrast and a dramatic atmoshphere. Maybe the cut off boat is an issue. I will propose a landscape format alternative, which I have at home. By the way, you have the right to oppose (even though I would prefer the other way). - Benh (talk) 08:06, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting question.svg Question Did you try to make a horizontal panorama of the place? Since here is not the main subject the Süleymaniye Mosque but also "Eminonu - Galata Bridge and fish-bread selling shops" I think that a panorama gives a better overview of this place. Ggia (talk) 08:13, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Sorry I took a bit long to answer Ggia. I didn't took a panorama of it. Maybe I was too lazy to set up everything. But I have a landscape format version of it. I'm not sure if it's worth nominating it. Will try to work on it if I have time... (which I'm short on miss these days). I'm not sure if a panorama would have been a benefit, I really wanted to catch how busy it is, and at same time, have that iconic shape in the background, so this needn't being extended to the right in my opinion. Happy new year by the way!- Benh (talk) 19:54, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

This one has good quality, nice lighting, and I trust you on the encyclopedic point. But those leafless trees give a cold atmosphere to that picture. I'm not so keen on the composition either, with much more room given to the sky than the rest. - Benh (talk) 21:31, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info the date of the image is 25 December, and it is winter time.. so the trees are leafless.. in the composition I tried to avoid a centered composition.. so some part of the panorama to the left side has been cropped (in order the main subject - the mosque not to be in the center). Concerning the sky, I don't believe that it has too much sky for the composition not looking like vertically-centered aligned.. but if people don't like so much sky.. it is very easy technically to have a new crop with a little less sky.

The comments on car and crowd can be justified, but these are mitigated by the fact that the dusk slot is short and, well, if the place is busy in real life, I see nothing wrong with having people on it. It's not like they detract this much from main subject when looking the picture as a whole. On the cons side, I think crop is tight and size is a bit small. And maybe composition could be better (more centered). - Benh (talk) 23:36, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

That´s a good point. To be honest I am not 100% sure. I lost a lot of pictures from the UAE and have always hoped that I can keep this one because the landscape is mostly made out of simple items and the Burj Al Arab helps the composition but is a minor element. Plan B would be to include use rationale information, hopefully that is no issue for this nomination. Is there anybody who can confirm these aspects? Poco a poco (talk) 15:52, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

These are valid criticisms: the "wine-dark sea" may have been due to image manipulation. I attempted a color rebalance. What do you think of the edit to the right?

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by JJ Harrison - uploaded by JJ Harrison - nominated by JJ Harrison Both subspecies of the Hooded Plover are classified as Endangered. There are about 3000 of this subspecies left. The habit of laying eggs on the edges of beaches in the summer months is the main cause - the same beaches are often popular for dog and human recreation, often resulting in trampled eggs. Fortunately Tasmania, at least, has plenty of largely abandoned/inaccessible beaches. -- JJ Harrison (talk) 23:02, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Not bad, but you should crop the image at the bottom (too much boring white, unnecessary shadow in the lower left corner) and fix the white balance (snow should be white, not blue-ish). If you have cropped the image at the top, you could also add a little more there (more space, that is). Also, I would have preferred it if the front of the cabin were lit (maybe 2-3 hours later). --Kabelleger (talk) 20:09, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Maybe like this? --Kabelleger (talk) 20:41, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
Ok, thanks a lot for the correction. Only a question: how did you correct the photo? -- The image isn't cropped on the top. SteGrifo27 (tell me) 19:19, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
Open in Gimp. Select crop tool (the cutter thing), choose fixed aspect ratio of 2:3. You may need to switch to landscape. Choose crop, make sure that it is locked to the top image border and try not to cut things in half (e.g. stones, mountains or the building on the mountain in the background). When you're done, right-click, choose colors -> levels. Choose red channel from drop-down. You now see a b/w diagram, which shows the brightness distribution of the red color. On the extreme right side, it is 0. Below it, there are three sliders. Move the white one on the very right towards the left as long as the diagram shows zero. Do the same for the green and the blue channels. The snow in the image should now be white (note: this way of fixing the white balance only works well for images that have a lot of snow in them). Click ok. I also played around with colors -> curves (you might want to adjust the black point a little to make the darkest parts of the image really black) and colors -> hue/saturation (in this dialog, select the red color to give the dull red paint on the cabin a little more punch). When saving, enable preview and choose the jpeg quality such that the file size is about the same as before or a bit larger.
Note 1: If you made an RAW file, you should start again with that one and do these adjustments in your RAW import tool.
Note 2: I'm not the image manipulation expert. Don't get the idea that this is a good or even the best way to do this. It just gets the job done, more or less. --Kabelleger (talk) 20:32, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

    • What does 'neutral vote' means without a comment? if you're neutral and if you don't have anything to say, it's better if you just don't vote, your neutral vote will affect the result just same as an oppose.  ■ MMXX  talk 17:40, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
      • Ok. –ElmA (TalkMy filesE-mail) 18:31, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Actually, neutral votes on FPC are truly neutral. Only {{support}} and {{oppose}} actually matter in the vote count. So {{neutral}} is from a vote counting point equivalent with, e.g., {{comment}} or {{info}}. See also the voting section in the guidelines. That said, it is of course always a good idea to state a reason as a reviewer to provide feedback to the creator/nominator/uploader. --Slaunger (talk) 22:06, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question-blue.svg Request Please add a {{panorama}} template to the file page to keep a record of the method of stitching as this is where it really belongs. And considering that the EXIF has been lost in the stitching process, please also add some details about the camera used, lens as well as settings (exposure time, ISO, etc.) Adds value and is instructive if others want to do something similar for another city. --Slaunger (talk) 22:13, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Done, except for the details about the camera: if someone wants to do something similar he needs a good tripod and a remote release first of all, not these details. Laitr Keiows (talk) 00:47, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
