Pictogram voting info.svg Info If that's so important, I've added the information to the photo. Here it is below. --Atoma 21:04, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Are you 100% sure that the photographer did it this way? I am very well familiar with the physics of stress, elasticity and polarization, but you can't distill that info from the website of the original photo. Unless you talked to Scott Bauer, of course ;-) Lycaon 15:11, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Well, you never know, I never say 100% ;) But having done this experiment several times myself (at that époque I wasn't into photography yet) I would say he must certainly have done it in a similar way. --Atoma 00:28, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I did put an email into the USDA to see about any additional information. Ideally I'll get a reply by the 22nd, but I'm not holding my breath. ShadowHalo 20:53, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Pictogram voting info.svg Info Ok, in reply to Lycaon I'll try to explain briefly the technique used to make the photo. The same text has been added in the photo description. Some (solid) knowledge in physics is required to understand this phenomenon. For those who already tried this experiment it will be easier to understand.

Explanation on the photo setup and physical phenomenon

The photo has been made using the photoelasticity method, an experimental method which gets a fairly accurate picture of stress distribution even around abrupt discontinuities in a material.

When a ray of plane polarised light is passed through a photoelastic material, it gets resolved along the two principal stress directions and each of these components experiences different refractive indices. The difference in the refractive indices leads to a relative phase retardation between the two component waves.

The setup used to photograph this photo was probably composed of: * A regular light source, with a quarter-wave plate installed to polarize the emerging light * A regular photo camera, with a quarter-wave plate installed in front of the lens

Light and camera being installed and oriented in the same direction, the two quarter-wave plates were turned with the polarizing axis in the same direction. --Atoma 21:04, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I can't still understand what is the purpose of the picture. If it is to show a depiction of the stress distribution, than a single and larger piece would be better; if it is to show examples of biodegradable cutlery, why this strange form of lighting? Aesthetically, the picture is not IMO very pleasant to the eye. - Alvesgaspar 18:00, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

If you like it or not is not the point, beside the landscape, architecture, macro, portrait or nude photography, night photography is one of the big genre in photography.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_photography) So give it a chance. In any case this one is a very good example of a night shot, so i will support it.--Simonizer 14:38, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment From the FP Guidelines for Nominators: Resolution - graphics located on Commons may be used in ways other than viewing on a conventional computer screen. They may be also used for printing or for viewing on very high resolution monitors. We can't predict what devices may be used in the future, so it is important that pictures being nominated have as high a resolution as possible. At least 2 million pixels (e.g. 2000 x 1000) seems reasonable right now. Images of lower resolution are typically rejected unless there are strong mitigating reasons --Simonizer 13:23, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
      • Yeah, i know about that, but the picture itself is good enough and the subject matter is good too, so i know about that and say its small, but not too small.--Torbenhenke 18:04, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist I was just about to list this here myself. Although it must be very unusual to remove a FP so soon after its promotion, I think the evidence presented in the en:W discussion establishes that this picture is not what it appears. There is of course no objection to the use of Photoshop, as such, but here it has been used to create an image which is not genuine. With a genuine image, there would be no reason at all for a fault-line to appear between the two birds. Serious concerns have also been expressed, both here and on en:W, about the genuineness of another picture by this uploader, namely Image:Silvereyepairofjuveniles.jpg (see old FP candidates, here). --MichaelMaggs 23:04, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Then all paintings and illustrations would be fake! True, people know a scene depicted by a painter is not nesseceraly truthfull, but it often is. although a scene depicted in a painting was not happening at the time of it's creation it may be a perfectly mundane and ordinary thing such as two birds perching together. And in the same way the birds were not perching together when I took the photo but it's not uncommon for them to do so - can anyone honestly say they have never seen two birds perching together?! Benjamint
  • It doesn't say anywhere that an image canot be a composite so it shouldn't have been an issue when people were voting and therfore unimportant, it's the final image that counts.benjamint
Not so. Its composite nature was and is highly relevant to the image's merit, and should have been disclosed. Doesn't the overwhelmingly negative reaction you have received both here and on the English Wikipedia tell you that undisclosed composite images which result in a highly misleading view of the main subject are not much valued by the community? --MichaelMaggs 07:46, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
When this image was initially proposed for FP status, you said in a comment that "I only get a few weeks each year to get a got shot and they rarely stay put for more than a few seconds in direct sunlight, thus the flash. It's also not very common for them both to be on the same perch for long enough to get a photo" (See here). It's difficult to see how that statement can be anything other than a deliberate attempt to mislead. --MichaelMaggs 08:01, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
Forthrightness by the nominator is extremely important for the FP process or we risk people claiming images they found somewhere as theirs, since it's almost impossible to contradict false ownership claims. So it's really pretty simple: Give an honest account on where the image comes from and what you did to it to get it in its current shape, or you have no right to expect that other editors give it serious consideration. Your hamfisted excuses are getting tedious. ~ trialsanderrors 19:31, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

      • Even if it is not upside down, it should be rotated 180° or nobody will recognize it... And, BTW, cropping is nothing trivial. Lycaon 23:04, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree the chart is upside down, look at the illustrations over the northern Africa (it is correct in the given link though). However, portolan charts like this one didn't have necessarily a "correct" orientation, when used for navigational purposes (contrarily to the "mappa-mundi", or world maps, some of which were oriented to East or South). Note that the coastal toponymy run always perpendicular to the coastlines, in order to save space and not to affect its legibility, resulting in a more or less random orientation of the names. This is a quite beatiful and important example of medieval nautical cartography and the quality of the copy doesn't really make justice to it, since the resolution is too small to read the legends and appreciate the details. - Alvesgaspar 19:08, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
    • You are right, of course. I think that "correct" orientation with this map is with south up because the text in what we today would call legend (in bottom right, err, northwestern corner) is written that way, and it appears to me that most inscriptions are written that way. And, that's the way it was oriented on Gallica, so I uploaded it that way. Nikola Smolenski 11:52, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
      • What do you mean that is the way it is oriented on Gallica? In the Paris library page it is with North up. It's really fascinating to know how the orientation of the maps changed with time. In the Middle Ages it was not yet clear which orientation was going to prevail: South, East or North. At that time, "orienting" a map meant to put it with the Orient (East) up, in the direction of the Paradise on Earth. I think it was the dissemination of Ptolemy's Geography in Europe (from 1450 on), with the idea of using geographic coordinates, that finally made the difference. From the 16th century on, I think that almost all cartography - world maps, nautical charts and terrestrial maps - was oriented to North. Alvesgaspar 12:57, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
        • Indeed, it is north up on Gallica, I don't know what was I thinking. Nikola Smolenski 13:54, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

  • I'm glad I got constructive comments this time, It's given me hope that oneday a composite will be promoted. The shadows are all correct as all the shots were taken on the same ledge within an hour or so of each other and I didn't flip any of the images (but I see what you mean - esp. with the one on the right). The grey stain is just a building that is out of focus, I got rid of most of it but it still detracts I suppose. --Benjamint444 03:12, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

      • Yes, PD-Old would be better. What's really needed here is something like PD-old|GFDL, (ie copyright in the subject has expired and the photographer licenses any copyright in the photo itself under GFDL. But so far as I'm aware this option doesn't at the moment exist. Perhaps we should set it up :) --MichaelMaggs 17:58, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
        • I don't have my prehistoric law textbook handy, but I'm pretty sure the pictographs here predate copyright legislation. I think GFDL is perfectly fine. For those cases were copyright expired adding both tags with an explanation should be ok. ~ trialsanderrors 21:02, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
      • I have added PD-Art|GFDL tag. --MichaelMaggs 08:43, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

    • This shot spans a little over 180° and is taken at one edge of the parading grounds. 360° would have made the aspect ratio more extreme and would have put the sun into view. IMHO such a shot would be less illustrative, as it would have to be taken from the center of the parading ground, yielding a different (worse) perception of the spatial arrangement. --Dschwen 14:45, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

    • Thanks for spotting the edge, that's fixed. However the downsampling is already done by the mediawiki software, and for special applications the user can do it himself. I tried to scale it down to 1300px height, bit while some parts may be a tad soft other parts loose important detail from downsampling, such as the roof tiles to the left. --Dschwen 06:51, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Unlike some other contributors I do not believe in photoshopping out people from my pictures. With my pics I intend to represent the reality as I witnessed it as closely as possible.

Image:NGC602.jpg, not featured[edit]

NGC 602 and N90 as seen by Hubble Space Telescope's ACS. NGC 602 is the designation for a particular young, bright open cluster of stars located in the Small Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to our own Milky Way. Radiation and shock waves from the star cluster has pushed away much of the lighter surrounding gas and dust that compose the nebula known as N90, and this in turn has triggered new star formation in the ridges (or "elephant trunks") of the nebula. These even younger stars are still enshrouded in dust but are visible to the Spitzer Space Telescope at infrared wavelengths. The image spans about 200 light years, and a number of more distant galaxies also appear in the background. edit1

In this case since the image has very little detail and a lot of grain downsampling might be a better option. ~ trialsanderrors 23:12, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm not shure, if a picture should be FP, when the sunset itself is the subject. If the subject is something else, e.g. a specific location, and the sunset is just there to support athmosphere and composition etc. it's ok and I'll give pro, but I'm not sure what to do with sunsets als subjects. --Jeses 20:19, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --Vmenkov 06:01, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - good pic, looks well-focussed to me, and (unusually for a pure white subject) shows feather detail well without being burnt out; very difficult to catch successfully. Comment: Exif data is the info (camera manufacturer, date & time, exposure, etc.) that is added by the camera to the raw image; it is deleted when a pic is edited (any type of editing, including cropping edges, etc) in a photo-editing programme, and can't be restored. If exif data was a FPC requirement (which it isn't), then no edited photo could ever be featured (which plenty are). - MPF 14:15, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Strange! I beg to differ on (almost) all accounts. No part of this picture seems to me in focus (look at the eye for instance), and exifs are usually not destroyed when editing a picture, moreover, if you happen to lose the exif data, it can (e.g. in paintshop pro) perfectly be restored by pasting the edited vesion on top of the original version and then saving it. I'm puzzled here ??? . Lycaon 16:35, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
    • I'm not experienced enough to discuss the exif, but this picture seems in focus to me. Look at the rest of the picture, aside from the eye. The foreground may be blurry, as it should be, but the bird is crystal clear. --Birdman1 16:55, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral The EXIF info I found using Photoshop Elements. The camera is Canon EOS 10D, 1/350 sec F6.7 using lens 75-300 mm at 195 mm. Surprising is that that camera has a max resolution of 3072 x 2048. The image is 4200 x 3300 which means in my opinion that the picture has been blown up 1.6 times. (Why?) That explains why it is not really sharp. Just like scanning a transparant with a too high resolution.--Wouterhagens 20:18, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

      • This is one of the biggest forests in Denmark - called "Grib Skov". The trees in the pic are all very old beech (Fagus sylvatica). --Malene Thyssen 15:02, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The Picea abies have probably been high-pruned to increase the timber value (= no knots); all their branches are above the top of the picture. The main foliage in the front of the pic is on branches of two Fagus sylvatica trees behind the photographer (note the way the branches come in from the left and right edges); the middle ground is four Picea abies trunks (brown, scaly), then in the background are several more Fagus sylvatica trunks (smooth, silvery grey). I've been to Gribskov many times and know the mix of trees there very well (as well as being able to recognise the species in the photo!) - MPF 17:38, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
          • You are right MPF - I had a closer look at one of my other pics from that day, the four tree trunks are indeed Picea abies :-) --Malene Thyssen 19:01, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It's strange that a blurred backgound can be used as a reason to oppose. Photographers often use that as a way of bringing attention to the main subject, and avoiding distracting background detail. Have a look at the portfolio of any top nature photographer. It's a shame when perfectly normal photographic technques are listed here as 'flaws'. The same applies to the use of limited depth of field: any image that use that technique is almost certain to be objected to on the grounds that 'it's not all in focus'.
