  • You can compare colors on title "MAERSK RIESA" at backside - clearly white. I don't know why yellow color was used. Also this ship at first years after construction was blue, not typically black as some tankers. -- George Chernilevsky talk 12:35, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

      • I am surprised they let vote, a stranger who did not produce any photograph. I draw the attention of the community about your behavior strange. It will be very easy for a critic to your level to amaze and delight us with your production. If I'm writing here is that on your talk page you erase the criticism you are doing. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 15:32, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
        • Is this really worth arguing over? Let's talk about the image, not those voting on it. --The High Fin Sperm Whale 17:37, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment You're right, one should talk about pictures, but nevertheless: FPC rules have changed. According to the new guidelines, only editors whose accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. I can't see a single edit (picture), only opposing votes. I'd like to know, why someone can vote without fulfillig the criteria for voters. If I not have the right to vote by not having 50 edits, I think I have also not the right to oppose. --Llez (talk) 20:11, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
      • Are we still using that rule? The vote was 11-9 to get rid of it. -- IdLoveOne (talk) 23:49, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
      • Yes, we are still using that rule, and actually it was 10-9 to get rid of it. The conseus was a heated discussion of what should have been a fairly simple conclusion and ended with one of the Commons administrators deciding the result.--Snaevar (talk) 15:29, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I like the colors and their atmosphere, has the feeling of weird and mystical. The image is sharp, maybe a bit noisy (ISO 200 would be better), but that's still ok. I have a problem with the composition: At such symmetrical buildings with reflections the image should be centered what isn't the case here. I would crop ~12 pixels at the right and ~312 pixels at the top. Then I would support this very nice photo. --kaʁstn Disk/Cat 21:14, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

This is a very nice picture, which could win in a contest, but I do not know how to use it in projects. There are many other sites where to show this kind of (very good) images. Only my opinion.--Jebulon (talk) 11:15, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
    • Remember that Commons is not only supporting Wikipedia. I imagine this could be used as a generic image in a Wikinews article like this or elsewhere. --ELEKHHT 13:21, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
    • Thanks for information. I'll try to remember, but I think I know well enough now what "Commons" is or is not ...;). I know too that this picture will be feature-d. In my opinion, only in my opinion, this (nice) image has no (or a very little) educationnal value and is not feature-able for this reason, sorry. --Jebulon (talk) 10:45, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
      • Beware the lone opposer, thou shall be castigated. W.S. 14:25, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
    • Amen O my Lord. Sed qui bene amat, bene castigat. --Jebulon (talk) 19:56, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
      • Don't misunderstand me, I am very glad you give so much attention to educational value! Nevertheless I think there are multiple ways an image can be educational. In this case I imagine you refer to a lack of EV as the image does not show any details of the horse or the vegetation etc. But as a highly impressive image, it can help attract attention (i.e. readers) to an educational article, thus indirectly leading to an educational benefit. More directly, it shows the silhouette of a horse in an aesthetically pleasant way, which might make viewers want to learn more about it. -ELEKHHT 21:11, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
        • I can agree with all of that. I understand what you mean. My oppose is "weak". But I oppose, indeed...--Jebulon (talk) 00:36, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
          • Je pense comme elekkh que tu as tendance à trop valoriser le côté encyclopédique d'une image alors qu'on est sur Commons, mais nous en avons déjà suffisamment discuté... À la rigueur, il faudrait penser à faire l'équivalent du FPC sur le Wiki français (seul grand wiki sans !!) - Benh (talk) 13:05, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
          • Je pense comme Archaeodontosaurus (et d'autres) que tu as tendance à trop valoriser le côté "concours de beauté" dans FPC alors qu'on est sur "Commons". Il y a beaucoup d'autres sites, et des meilleurs, pour montrer et juger de "belles images", alors que "Commons" est unique. Nous ne nous accorderons pas sur ce point je le crains, et en effet nous en avons déjà discuté (suffisament ?). Je crains que ton interprétation de la pensée d'un autre ne soit pas tout à fait conforme à ce qu'il dit, en ce qu'il confère tout de même un aspect encyclopédique (ou éducatif, pour mieux traduire) à la beauté de l'image en question et tente de m'en convaincre. Je pense au contraire qu'il conviendrait de supprimer les FPC des wikipédias nationales (anglaise, turque, allemande essentiellement), qui n'apportent rien et ne font que créer de la confusion, d'autant que la tendance est à regrouper et à faire migrer tout les stocks sur "Commons". J'attache énormément de prix au côté international de "Commons". Je considère enfin que les discussions particulières et les interpellations ad hominem n'ont pas leur place sur cette page, surtout dans une langue qui n'est pas usuelle pour la majorité des utilisateurs. --Jebulon (talk) 17:10, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
            • I've no issue with switching back to english. I remind you again part of the guidelines : "Remember, the goal of the Wikimedia Commons project is to provide a central repository for free images to be used by all Wikimedia projects, including possible future projects. This is not simply a repository for Wikipedia images, so images should not be judged here on their suitability for that project.". That's Elekhh's point. Another issue, unlike en:FPC, you can't weight your vote on Commons, no need for weak or strong vote. - Benh (talk) 09:30, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
            • My concern was not only about the use of english or french...--Jebulon (talk) 11:51, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
            • After re-reading the guidelines (rule 7), I see that I was wrong (only) with this part of my sentence above: but I do not know how to use it in projects. It is not a valid reason to oppose, ok. I still think so, but please notice that it is not the main reason of my oppose. I maintain the rest. To me, this picture is suffering of a lack of educational value. Then I still oppose for that. It was a weak oppose because I used a contrario the same arguments used for a weak support by THFSW. Please notice that I didn't use the false/wrong template. This kind of trial sounds ridiculous. I never go to ENWP FPC (only one time, when they promoted my écorché), and I don't know what happens there regarding the vote process.--Jebulon (talk) 00:52, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Since this is a boat ferry picture, I think there are two ways to get it featured. The first is to have a good DOF so the landscape is what makes the picture great. The second is to have near-perfect quality of the boat. Unfortunately, though, this picture does not have a good DOF or sharpness and a slightly too much overexposure (wrong time of day, IMO), that makes the white color look a little off. Additionally, of-course, every image should have a decent composition and here even the water trails of the boat are not fully on the photo. It´s a no for me.--Snaevar (talk) 12:13, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Netherlandish Proverbs. Google Art Project.
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info painted by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, digitized by Google Art Project - uploaded by DcoetzeeBot (bot of Dcoetzee) - nominated by Dcoetzee -- From en:Netherlandish_Proverbs: "Netherlandish Proverbs (also called The Blue Cloak or The Topsy Turvy World) is a 1559 oil-on-oak-panel painting by Pieter Bruegel the Elder which depicts a land populated with literal renditions of Flemish proverbs of the day. [...] There are around 100 identifiable idioms in the scene". This particular digitization, from the Google Art Project, is not only higher resolution than our other copies of the same work (5649 × 4000 or 22.6 megapixels) but also has better colors and is sharper, allowing elements that were not discernable before to be identified (see e.g. this fish). It's used in 46 articles on 29 projects and currently has 44 extracted images depicting individual proverbs. Has a good artwork template with 10 translations of the title, albeit missing provenance and accession number. On the minus side, it could definitely use image notes and Google's title for the work (The Dutch Proverbs) appears to be their own invention (possible rename?).

Common Kestrel

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The originally uploaded picture has obviously been greatly modified, and not particularly well. I suspect that the whole background has been replaced - the perch looks square edged and manmade, what were the original surroundings?. Ok, we have no particular problem with edited images if it is well done, and disclosed, but here it is neither. For instance the tips of the tail feathers should be white and rounded, this bird has had them snipped off - I expect the original had a much lighter coloured background at this point, and in cutting out the bird from the background, they were lost with the background. On the original upload there are a couple of white specs in this area which were probably part of those feathers. There are editing artifacts all the way around the outline of the bird. (NB I am not complaining about the subsequent editing for the FP nomination) --Tony Wills (talk) 10:37, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Perhaps there was some fixup done just near the tail, but the rest of the photo is as shot. The feathers around the bill look very consistent with the background. Has anyone asked the photographer for comment? Tomfriedel (talk) 02:35, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
I put an initial question on his talk page, no reply yet. Everything below the perch worries me, the background has a different texture (smooth) than above. No sign of the talons from the front toes appearing under the perch (what is that perch?). I think the photographer just cleaned up the image but wasn't aiming to submitt it to FP, if he would upload the original image we could maybe redo the edits. --Tony Wills (talk) 03:21, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

I don't believe in delisting FP images that were up to the standard at the time (others disagree ;-), but in this case it is a recently promoted image that clearly failed what I thought was a standard here : edited images are fine so long as the editing is disclosed and not apparent (so I am not so much concerned with the quality of the photo, but the quality of the edits). --Tony Wills (talk) 21:52, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Andreas has sent me an unedited version, the falcon is perched on top of a white sign, the white tail feather tips are very difficult to see against that background but I think that we can retrieve them, the talons on the front toes are hidden by the sign. I haven't yet seen the camera original file, so am not sure yet whether we can get a less compressed version (with fewer JPEG compression artifacts). --Tony Wills (talk) 20:02, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Andreas sent me the original and I have re-edited it to include the tail tips and eliminate the visible jpeg artifacts. I have adjusted levels slightly, but haven't increased saturation or adjusted the colours. The original background was fairly noisy, so I have smoothed that out with a gausian-blurr. Others may be able to do a better job, so I have uploaded a jpeg of the original too. (PS I love the sign in the original, it is as though the Kestrel is guarding the area, and directing you to read the sign :-)

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because it is missing proper identification (per Maurilbert) and composition is not good->to much unused/empty space on top, to busy below and is also not sharp enough (per myself) Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A previous edit of this image was promoted as FP, but was delisted due to a few short comings, see previous nom & delisting. -- Tony Wills (talk) 08:56, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think there could be some substantial undisclosed editing going on below the railing. In particular I think that some or all of the space below has been replaced with a fake background. Particularly on left hand side the tone suddenly jumps from dark above to light green below along the fence line. The rate of this tone shift seems inconsistent with the amount of background blur. Secondly the railing is blurred at the edges above, but sharp in places below. Finally there appears to be direct evidence of cloning on the lower left hand edge of the railing. I'd like an independent assessment before making such accusations though. JJ Harrison (talk) 09:58, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
    • Well, it is disclosed it seems (so I am wrong there), but still obvious in my view. JJ Harrison (talk) 09:59, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Well the original edit got through FP with little trouble, where were you then :-). I must admit that my editing concentrated on repairing the bird, I am not really much fussed by the fashion for blurred, blank, backgrounds ;-). Perhaps someone with a bit more skill would care to tidy up the image (or start again from the original :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 11:04, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Heh, sorry to waste your effort a bit. It might be technically possible to improve the consistency of background, but I'm not a photoshop whiz. JJ Harrison (talk) 23:00, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I would not bother with elaborate work on the background, since the quality is not up to the standard any longer: lack of detail due to heavy posterization (also, the head does not seem to be properly focused). It is essentially a bird without details in front of a photoshopped background. But I admit it looks nice as thumbnail. --Nikopol (talk) 12:44, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because the suject-title is much too small and a terrible picture quality. --Sting (talk) 00:23, 8 March 2011 (UTC) Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I can see why it was submitted to FP, the strong diagonals of colour and cryptic horizon look quite good at 640x475. But at full resolution it certainly has problems. For an image taken at ISO 64 and 10Mpx resolution, and 11MB in size I am surprised at all the artifacts. I would love to see the non-photo-shopped original. --Tony Wills (talk) 11:50, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It seems that two pictures were stitched together in a rather bad way: see the horizon line! Lower part is oversaturated, upper part is full of artifacts and noise. -- MJJR (talk) 22:37, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Too heavy persp. correction ? --Jebulon (talk) 14:39, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Jebulon, the tower seems to lean in the wrong direction because the slant is different in the front than on the back, that is, the slant in the front is of a different angle than the slant in the back, you can see it in the second tower also. If you were to look at the towers from the top down, the center of the top portion would not sit in the center of the bottom circle, it would be off-center. This can be appreciated when you look at the towers from the side. Perspective correction always distorts something else. The only way to really get better perspectives is with view cameras or perspective correction lenses. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 16:46, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

What can be interpreted as posterization in the sky, details I can see too like Maedin but not as noticeable as he said, are maybe/possibly only slight differences in the thickness of the high altitude clouds.

SHORT DESCRIPTION

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because the image is too small. The picture has also an unnecessary frame and watermark. -- Sting (talk) 11:48, 10 March 2011 (UTC) Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.
1) The edge image can be changed (unless specifically required). 2) The rules for the nomination did not provide for the format SVG images. 3) Conditions do not provide the desired image minimum size for drawing. --W.Rebel (talk) 13:40, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
