Interesting how different this is seen. For me, that's what it makes so interesting, five main objects (Reichstag, Tiergarten, Potsdamer Platz, the sky and the balloon), all very distinct and all very different, so that it almost looks surrealistic. (Don't get me wrong, I fully respect your notion, although from my personal POV I find it hard imagine that one could see the composition as a disadvantage ...) -- H005 Sexy Mouth transparent.png 20:41, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Odd that the newer upload (31/01/2010) although larger (1,957 × 3,000 pixels) than the older upload (28/10/2007; 1,000 × 1,533 pixels) is lower resolution (only 714 KB, compared to 946 KB for the older upload). For a 1,957 × 3,000 pixel image, it is reasonable to expect at least a megabyte, preferably 2 MB, to avoid jpeg compression artefacts. - MPF (talk) 11:30, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral I agree with Amada44 that byte size isn't always a reliable indicator of image quality. (In particular, noise tends to increase size while reducing quality.) Still, one can in fact see quite a few JPEG compression artifacts in this image if one knows where to look (e.g. near the edges of structures and near sharp lines like writing on the shuttle and the wires going to the top of the tower). They're not quite blatant enough to be obvious at a glance, but they're close; in particular, this image would likely be a pain to edit. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 12:21, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

But now I've realized that me knowing the subject is not part of the FP criteria. He is notable enough to have wiki pages about him, so it has value beyond portraiture of a random person. As the others have said, this is high quality (IMO better than those watermarked BW ones above). The only thing I struggled with was wow, and looking back at Commons:Featured_pictures/People, I think this is a little short of the notable portraits we've already featured.

Sorry, what do you mean with distracting? I removed the background because i thought the original bg (my kitchen table) could distract..
If you think that with the original background the image can be better, i have no problem to reupload with that --Number55★ (after 54, before 56) 00:07, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Without seeing the original, I can't say for sure, but I'll say indeed the edit was probably an improvement. To be featured however, I would require a more naturally non-distracting background (without the need for much post-processing), like File:Tomato je.jpg for example. On that one, you don't look at it and think about the post-processing that may have occurred, you just think of tomatoes. Jujutacular T · C 03:27, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Because in this case, the food is in a highly reflective bowl which shows a reflection of the previous background; the reflection and what it reflects to don't match. The tomatoes are not reflective, so the same problem is not present. - MPF (talk) 07:41, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose nice composition but the too much "art-filtered" foreground is really distracting! Imo would be close to FPX cause of the "manipulation" at the picture. --mathias K 05:23, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
The image was strongly tilted when uploaded (see previous version), which made me believe that it wasn't "manipulated" other than using certain camera settings. --Elekhh (talk) 05:42, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
I noticed the tild. But the way the pic looks is definitely not by certain camera settings. The cam was a Canon eos Rebel xti and this pic was imo photoshopped with some kind of art-filter like "old-photo" for example. --mathias K 06:33, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
I do not think so. Maybe saturation and/or contrast have been increased a bit, but if someone had really done some non-standard manipulation why shouldn't he also fix noise and tilt? These two were the most obvious flaws in the first version. H005 Sexy Mouth transparent.png 20:35, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
Furthermore, the description states that the view is from the highway, and if it was taken from a slow moving vehicle that would explain the "artistic" blur of the forground. --Elekhh (talk) 23:24, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Is this usual to burn the eggs in the direct sun ;-) or do you turn it around to show the eggs? Would be interisting to know, and maybe good to note it on the dicription page. Furthermore I don't think this is a FP cause of the harsh lighting and resulting strong shadows. The slightly sideview is not the best position to show the crab cause of the resulting dof problems. Definitely QI & VP but imo no FP, sorry George. --mathias K 05:50, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
  • After very fast photographing (1-2 sec) this crab has returned to usual pose. I wouldn't like to do it harm. If a crab falls to back, it can turn self to normal pose for few seconds. Photo of this biological ID with eggs is very rare in Web. -- George Chernilevsky talk 07:14, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Believe that this is a very rare and well captured scene. Change vote to neutral cause of the not perfect conditions while taking the pic. No sup because of the technical reasons posted above. Thanks for the comment and greetings, mathias K 07:24, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

There are plenty of types of scallop. --99of9 (talk) 04:19, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

  • I just mean rotating the photograph. --99of9 (talk) 11:15, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Sorry, but for a potentially extinct taxon photographed 20 years after its reported extinction date, this really does need a lot more information: independent verification of identity; exactly where was it photographed and in what circumstances; and whether it is an older museum shell placed on a beach specially for the photo. Can you add these, please? - MPF (talk) 18:00, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
  • This seashell has attritions and bit erased edges. Its condition is far not the ideal. However it is best of the shells of this mollusc found by me at 2008-2009. It was randomly saved in Black sea. The photo is made on find place on the beach at surf zone. Geocode is correct. --George Chernilevsky talk 19:21, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Thanks (I fear I hadn't noticed the geocode before!). However, a shell would not be in that good a condition after nearly 20 years on the beach (at most, only a few months); either it is a different species, or if the identification is correct, then it is not extinct. - MPF (talk) 00:18, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral that's for sure a nice photo but this centred composition doesn't really convince me. --AngMoKio (talk) 07:51, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I really don't see how I could have made it otherwise... sometimes, it's just better to stick to centered composition. I also think it fits encyclopedic purposes well, and after all, this is mainly what this picture is for. - Benh (talk) 11:20, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I am not in general against centered composition. Here it seems a bit too straight-forward. It is really a good photo, I definitly tend to pro. --AngMoKio (talk) 07:26, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I don't really like the projection of this as the edges are curved like a fisheye lens. Could it be stitched without this curvature? Diliff (talk) 09:27, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
  • It's fisheye projection actually :) So yes that's on purpose, I understand it may not be to the taste of everyone, but I find it give much more impressive feeling than a straight projection such as cylindrical or alike. This seems to be a good example of where spherical projection is better (if I look at the supports). Will try to stitch it again tonight, but am afraid of missing time. - Benh (talk) 11:20, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

  • My opinion is that clouds add a dramatic touch that makes this pic standing out a little. You've got to be a bit lucky to get them like that : just there's must be just little room for sun to lit the subject bright enough so that the sky is not overexposed (if you pay attention, you'll see a little blue in the upper corner, where sun rays could find a way through to). No cheating such as exposure blending or playing with curves here... if that's what you meant. - Benh (talk) 22:14, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I opened the panorama yesterday and it's actually a blending a three exposures panorama, certainly hence your feeling of undereposure in the sky. So I apologize. Now I'm embarassed... but... I believe this is more close to what could be seen then, and most often, it is the sky which is overexposed in such conditions, rather that it being underexposed in my picture. IMO the blending still keeps a natural look, which has even driven my wrong... I should be able to restitch it this week, and will renominate myself. - Benh (talk) 06:50, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

  • You've long been away from FPC, and it shows. This issue has been discussed over and over, and the consensus is that it's fine in that case. I'll let you dig more to find why (nomination of current FP of same subject is good starting point). Also that "bit fish eye" distortion is only on horizontal axis this time, and is unavoidable to squeeze this much FOV into the frame. Please oppose on basis on something you know, at least... I would have been better with your usual "don't like night shots", which is as smart as a "I oppose Obama portrait, I voted republican party". - Benh (talk) 19:22, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Here you can see the other images of the Clematis „Rouge Cardinal“ in wikimedia commons. I think, the „naturally look“ of these three images helps them not to a scientific value. There colors and the details of the flower and the leafes are not punctilious. With such images you can’t describe, classify, identify and name the species „Rouge Cardinal“. I used a new way to preserve the naturally form and colors of the „Rouge Cardinal“ with scientific value and to find an alternative to the preserved plant specimens in the herbarium. I scanned the „Rouge Cardinal“ and made this large and sharp image with subtly differentiated natural colors und a large depth of field. I think this image in wikimedia commons will be used in the plant taxonomy. Gratulation, MPF, you saw what happened to the „Rouge Cardinal“, but now you know why I did it this way. --Michael Gäbler (talk) 14:08, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Ich erkläre mal auf deutsch was mich stört. Es ging mir weniger um die Farben, da gibt es von der Clematis so viele Züchtungen, dass wohl alle Farben vorkommen. Aber kann kann auf deinem Fotos eben nicht erkennen wie die Pflanze aussieht. Es ist ja eine Rankplanze bei der die Blätter nicht so zusammenstehen wie auf dem Foto. Auch sitzen die Blüten nicht so auf den Blättern auf. Jemand der keine Clematis kennt, erhält so einen ganz falschen Eindruck von der Pflanze. Desweiteren erscheint mir auch die Beleuchtung zu frontal. Deshalb meine Ablehnung (und ich denke deshalb auch die Ablehnung vom MPF), andere sehen das anders, deshalb gibt's ja eine Abstimmung darüber. Sorry, my english is not so good to explain this in english. --Berthold Werner (talk) 17:40, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

As a fantastic example of the Scandinavian arts and crafts movement, I think it fits the second criteria for artworks. Being "of high artistic merit:  Works which, while not particularly well known, are none the less wonderful examples of their particular type or school of art."

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info -- its misleading to identify a species of plant in this forumn when I just dont have sufficient information make a positive identification... Melaleuca cuticularis[5] is the most likely but until it flowers I couldnt be certain then it would be based on the timing of the flower as the alternatives(M.laterifloria subsp acutifolia(next most likely), M.preissiana, M.incana) have the same flower colour descriptions of white/cream as well similar form and size descriptions. Add to this the photograph was taken some 200km(150miles) from home thats a round trip of +400km(300mi) its unlikely I be able to take multiple journies between Aug-Feb to make a visual identification I've already checked theres no online paper that has the flora for the area listed even if there was all four species would be expected to be listed as they are all identified as occuring in the area. Gnangarra 10:57, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
      • Then maybe you shouldn't nominate it? Aug - Feb is 7 months (?). During the (short) orchid season (May - June) I almost every weekend do a 500 km round rip. Which doesn't say that you should do the same of course... Identification shouldn't be misleading, BTW. If you're not confident about a positive ID, don't upload until you are sure. I can assure you from own experience that it sometimes will take quite a bit of effort (and time). Lycaon (talk) 19:46, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
        • It clearly shows the tree form of the genus Melaleuca which dominate the transitional land between waterways, lakes, swamps etc in the natural enviroment but I'm ok with calling it Melaleuca cuticularis because it probably is and if its considered that critical as the significant majority of people would not be able to distinguish the difference from that photograph on balance the likelyhood of an real issue is negligable.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Nah! --Tomascastelazo (talk) 03:32, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is somewhat counter-collaborative to propose an image (and insist that this be evaluated on existing standards) just as the community is conducting two discussions that could affect the eligibility of this image. Nevertheless, I'll humour you and give my evaluation based on the existing standards. This falls under "Artworks, illustrations, and historical documents", and so requires:
  • High Quality (required): Apparently there is some dispute about this. I would add that the man(?)s legs look like they have a different skin tone to his body (legs have a lot of extra red and purple). The cats tail has a strange section that is much darker than the rest of the cat (apparently due to a glass reflection, but along with many of the reflections in this image, it doesn't look like a typical reflection to me, and anyway if on a photo might be adjudicated as poor lighting due to odd reflections [6]). Also it doesn't look much like a real cat, but perhaps that is part of the style (though not mentioned on the description or in the Wiki article). Many elements of the scene are cut by the edge of the image (chin, ear, clothes, headphone), which in a photograph would probably cause me to critique this image as poorly composed [7]. The woman(?)s eyelashes are on top of her hair, perhaps this is part of the style (please comment??), but her hair edges are then on top of the eyelashes, which must be plain and simple poor quality. Ditto for the hair going under the eye, not mentioned in en wiki's description of the technique.
  • Notable in its own right (at least one of the next four required): Obviously not.
  • Of high artistic merit: No. This is not from within "the school of art", let alone a "wonderful example", it is apparently an outsiders attempt to illustrate the school of art by emulating it. A fair enough thing to do, but not satisfying this guideline.
  • Of high historic merit: Obviously not.
  • Of high illustrative merit: Note that in this item the notability of the artistry depends on what it is trying to illustrate. Complex machine mechanisms do not require highly notable artistry, but books do. If you're trying to illustrate an artistic style (as an outside user, rather than just obtaining permission to use an image from within that style), it had better be wonderfully artistically notable! This is not, per my quality comments above.
  • Wow/Visual impact (required by me): I have consistently applied this (perhaps to Durova or Adam Cuerdon's despair) to all types of image. This is my personal deviation from the guidelines [8] (Although interestingly it's very clearly included in the full guidelines), since they are after all, only guidelines, not rules about what we have to feature. This scene does not wow me, perhaps this makes me a w:wowser. But hey, if you want to feature to the whole world a picture as an example of our finest, you should choose an image that impresses children, parents, women, men, wowsers and non-wowsers [9]. This is not important in QI, but this is FP.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment What do you mean "too tight crop above"? There's nothing above the frog but empty space and still enough room so nothing looks cramped, in fact if this were my image I wouldn't be afraid to crop off even more in between the eye and current top. --IdLoveOne (talk) 01:46, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
