    Just noting that the above is a local enwiki convention, and I've disputed its relevance for Commons on your talk page. Jafeluv (talk) 17:13, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
  • The first steps guidelines on commons refers to language wikis for formatting guidelines; see Commons:First steps/Upload form, which directly links the en wiki to clearly show that the file extension should be in the lower case (jpg) there. I think that it is common sense and good practice that images candidates here should follow the guidelines in the biggest wiki, the en wiki. Snowmanradio (talk) 09:09, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • I respectfully disagree. See your talk page. Jafeluv (talk) 15:52, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Commons recommends language wiki guidelines and specifically links to the en wiki guidelines. It says on commons in the fist steps guidelines (linked above); "You should use a descriptive name and follow the draft Commons language policy and/or the Wikipedia naming conventions for the language used, which give guidance on capitalisation, non-alphanumeric characters, etc." Snowmanradio (talk) 17:57, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Spring is here! Composition on yellows and purples: Coleostephum myconis (yellow) and Echium plantagineum (purple). This was a bit more difficult to do than it seems due to the need of a generous dof, the large dynamic range between the yellows (almost burned) and the purples (a bit dark) ... and the wind. Anyway that is not a criterium for promotion. Beauty is. Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:01, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:01, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't really like the composition. There should be only one flower in focus in the rest should make a blurry background IMO. --The High Fin Sperm Whale 00:46, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
    • But that would be a different subject. This is basically like saying I don't really like the composition. There should be a fighter jet in focus and the background should be a fiery explosion. --Dschwen (talk) 01:48, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support for a well-executed shot of a natural situation. –Juliancolton | Talk 01:02, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A sea of flowers with complementary colours in yellow and violet. --Michael Gäbler (talk) 23:17, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I get the visual appeal of the yellow next to the purple, but I don't get that's there's a clear educational quality to the image. If you simply mean showing the flowers, I don't think it's a very clear or evocative photo of either species.

    • P.S.: Large image viewer: Zoom: with Flash player / without --Dschwen (talk) 22:22, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
    • Hmm. I'm not really any good at perspective correction - the programs I use (GIMP and, uh... GIMP) have extremely limited abilities in that line (But, hey, my own work is mostly of self-made scans of engravings.) Anyone want to have a go at sorting this out? Adam Cuerden (talk) 22:27, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
      • You can forget about that. GIMP won't cut it here, as it cannot properly handle the wraparound in the 360 degree projection. Actually it only works on rectilinear pictures, which this is not. Restitch with vertical guides is needed. It puzzles me a bit, that someone who is obviously able to stitch such a big image without a lots of obvious stitching faults did not manage to get the verticals straight. --Dschwen (talk) 22:43, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
        • Weel, there's a lot of arches. I imagine that can make it awkward. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:03, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I don't think a wide panorama is a good way to depict this subject except (maybe) as an academic or artistic experience. The fact is it does not illustrate what the thing really looks like. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:26, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
    • I was there today. It's not really a bad depiction, on the whole. Might cut it into two images - forwards and back - but it's a reasonable depiction on the whole Though I must say it misses out a lot of the interesting stuff there. I should dig out my camera and make a Valued Image Set or something (my camera is not good enough for FP) Adam Cuerden (talk) 00:08, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

  • It is easy. Change JPG to jpg by renaming the files on the hard drive, or in the commons upload interface. Snowmanradio (talk) 20:32, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Note that the linked recommendation is an enwiki convention, and most other projects have no such guideline. Commons in no way requires lower case file extensions. Jafeluv (talk) 22:19, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Yes, the upload form reminds the uploader to follow the local naming rules of the wiki where the image is intended to be used. However, this image is not used on enwiki. Jafeluv (talk) 16:37, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

  • I don't really see how it makes a difference. I've never heard of any technical distinction between "JPG" and "jpg", and I've uploaded hundreds of images without ever encountering an issue. –Juliancolton | Talk 18:09, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • It is not a technical issue. The documentation explains that it is about uniformity in the encyclopaedias. Snowmanradio (talk) 19:03, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

  • You're completely right; major error on my part. I moved the image and FPC page to remove the misidentification. Still, I don't feel the species is particularly relevant, but I'll try to identify it if it's deemed necessary. –Juliancolton | Talk 19:03, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! You're right, the identity isn't too important here, more useful for the arboricultural aspects - MPF (talk) 23:47, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
I think that the species of the tree is an important part of the documentation. The tree does not only show a piece of string, but also lichen, which may be identifiable. Snowmanradio (talk) 22:50, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose An interesting phenomenon, but poor focus over much of the tree. Snowmanradio (talk) 19:08, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • The tree isn't the subject; the in-grown foreign object is. The focus was deliberately created accordingly. –Juliancolton | Talk 19:33, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • My view is that the composition could be better than to have the focus only on the in-grown foreign object. Snowmanradio (talk) 22:01, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • That's a matter of personal opinion, which is perfectly fine, but I don't feel it has any significant bearing on the quality of the image. I'll try to reshoot it from different angles over the next weekend and see what happens. –Juliancolton | Talk 22:18, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • I think that the tree and the lichen on the surface of the bark are important features of the photograph, and I have added lichen to the image description. The guideline (see above) says; "Focus - every important object in the picture should normally be sharp." Snowmanradio (talk) 22:36, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • But the lichens and the tree bark aren't the main subject — the in-grown string is. That's my feeling as the photographer, at least. Thanks for the edits though. –Juliancolton | Talk 23:09, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
  • See Commons:Image guidelines; "An image “speaks” to different people differently". Some people see string, others see lichen, and others see a tree. Snowmanradio (talk) 23:16, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment always the same problem... As uploaded above another version (with the same text, in fact, it's another document), the description in the file page is not true, and concerns only the first uploaded image : where is, here, King John's Great Seal ?--Jebulon (talk) 15:14, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Actually, the description on the file page is accurate and true. The original file uploaded (as well as the 2nd file uploaded) was the later 1225 version (the seal on which is of Henry III). The third file uploaded was the even later 1297 version (confirmed by Edward I). For information regarding those two later versions of the Magna Carta, see the timeline of the Magna Carta at http://www.bl.uk/treasures/magnacarta/shockwave/magna_carta_broadband.htm. See the history of the file (and its description) before assuming, please. As for the "missing" seal, according to http://www.bl.uk/treasures/magnacarta/basics/basics.html (which you can get to from the file description page) "Three of the four surviving copies of Magna Carta have lost their wax seals over the centuries. The only one which still has its seal is the burnt copy on display here [at the British Library]. Unfortunately the seal was destroyed when the charter was burnt by fire in 1731..." Consequently, this is the only high resolution image of any of the four known surviving copies of the original 1215 Magna Carta. Earthsound (talk) 04:14, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
    • I've read all before assuming, and I understand what you say. Please note that I did'nt vote. I'm afraid that my Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment was not clear, because not careful enough, sorry. But i did not really understand why the description page says authentificated by the Great Seal of King John, because the seal is missing. I was confused with the first document uploaded, which have a visible seal (of a later king, ok). I still think that all of these very interesting documents are different files, and not different versions of the same (even the text is the same). And please don't forget I wright here in a non natural language for me, and it's a bit hard for me in this kind of matters, sorry...--Jebulon (talk) 10:13, 28 April 2010 (UTC)
      • When referring to the Magna Carta, it is normally understood to be the original, 1215 version, hence my uploading the original 1215 version on top of the 1225/1297 versions. I can understand your initial confusion, if you're assuming the original image uploaded was, in fact, the 1215 original. On a side note, both Henry III's version in 1225 & Edward I's in 1297 are shorter than the original, having omitted and changed some things. I agree with you, though. The three versions should be regarded as separate files/documents. I would posit that the latter two could/should be uploaded and named (something like) Magna Carta 1225.jpg and Magna Carta 1297.jpg.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree that there's some fringing that's pretty noticeable. But it's not the dreaded purple fringe, and I think it adds nice glow to the photo using the bright natural light. Just my opinion though, and I can see how you might disagree about its effect on educational value. Steven Walling 05:12, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
      • On reflection, it's not bad enough to oppose over. It's still a negative factor to me, but the photo's strengths compensate at least enough to leave me neutral. --Avenue (talk) 11:03, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - does this affect the validity of the license on the image? They claim "Any photographer who uses images of the Portland Japanese Garden for commercial, advertising, or promotional purposes is required to pay $150 fee" - is that compatible with CC-BY-SA (free commercial use permitted), or is it just unenforceable bluster by the Portland garden? - MPF (talk) 22:50, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
    • Ugh, this sounds like the Olympics issue all over again. My unschooled and un-lawyerly opinion would be that it's unenforceable and it's unlikely to be challenged in court, so there's no sound reason to reject the photographer's right to license their work however they like. Steven Walling 17:53, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
    • An informal poll of my Portland photographer friends says that because the garden is private property, the restriction is legit. It sucks, but we may need to remove this and any other photos of the garden. :( Steven Walling 18:05, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
      • I'm no expert either, but my thinking is that any rights the Garden might have over this image are sufficiently unclear that we needn't delete it. If the photographer signed an agreement about their photos when they entered the garden, they might have broken that agreement by licensing the image as they did, or if someone eventually uses the photo commercially. But we have no evidence of any contract. Without one, I think it's essentially unenforceable bluster. --Avenue (talk) 13:18, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

    I don't see anything wrong there either.

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The first steps guidelines on commons refers to language wikis for formatting guidelines; see Commons:First steps/Upload form, which directly links to en:Wikipedia:IUP#NAME Image titles and file names on the en wiki to clearly show that the file extension should be in the lower case (jpg) there. The en wiki says "For uniformity, lower case file name extensions are recommended."

  • I would say that there is a discussion on my talk page about this topic. The only file extensions recommended for photographs by commons are jpg and jpeg; see Commons:First_steps/Quality_and_description#Format_guidance.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment MPF, well, by over exposing, the sky will turn really light and the image as a whole will lose saturation, color balance, etc. As far as the tree being dark, they are well represented within their luminosity value, and you could get a little more detail in photoshop if you want. The main thing is that the exposure is such as to incorporate within reason the tonal values of all subjects represented. Another thing is that your monitor´s settings do not allow you to see the tonal differences in the low values. In mine I see good detail in shadows and highlights. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 23:46, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

          • You can take my comment at face value, I am really impressed by the ability to word the thoughts you had when composing the picture, and the fact that you had actual thoughts when taking the picture (beyond a simple mh, that looks good). The flipside is the danger of overselling your work. But labeling my comment to be sarcasm is a bit mean (and straight up bad faith).

            • Thank you again, Daniel, but that wasn't exactely like you say. When I was composing the picture, all I wanted was to exagerate the perspective and focus on the expression of the face. But I was not very convinced it would result (the thoughts were something like: 'mh, this one will go probably straight to the trash basket when I get home'). Only later, when adjusting the framing, did the mystical interpretation crossed my head (not bad for a non-religious person...). No, I don't believe the words help to sell the picture because most of the reviewers don't appreciate this kind of artistic liberty... -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 17:14, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

    • It isn't mandatory, but from the guidelines "Value - our main goal is to feature most valuable pictures from all others"; a fully named and documented image is of greater value and will gain more support than one that isn't. By blue cast, I mean that the leaves are a little too blue-green, and the flower a bit too purplish-red, compared with what the actual plant would be like.

I think that it is common sense and good practice that images candidates here should follow the guidelines.

Further, the first steps guidelines on commons refers to language wikis for formatting guidelines; see Commons:First steps/Upload form, which directly links to en:Wikipedia:Image_use_policy#Image_titles_and_file_names (I see that this image is shown on several articles on the English wiki and a number of other language wikis). The en wiki clearly indicates that the file extensions in the lower case (jpg) are recommended there, and the en wiki says "For uniformity, lower case file name extensions are recommended."

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think that the widespread effect is do by the storm... --Llorenzi (talk) 07:46, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure how close the storm was, but the artefacts I see are not just in the distance; they affect essentially the whole image. At full size, it's blurry or blocky more or less everywhere. The sea in the middle distance is where I could see artefacts even in the image page thumbnail, but jagged edges around the archway are also pretty clear at full size, along with artefacts above and below the road walls to its right. This is a lovely scene, but I'm sorry, I think the image was probably just too highly compressed at some point. --Avenue (talk) 09:08, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Agreed. If it was your camera that caused it, all I can suggest is to shoot in high quality mode next time (or even get a camera than can save RAW images, if that's an option). If, however, it was the software you used to postprocess the image, and if you still have the original file from your camera, you could try to redo the edits and save the result with a higher JPEG quality level. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 13:35, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

ONCF class DF 115 (former SNCF 72000) with the afternoon train from Taourirt to Nador, Morocco.
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info all by Kabelleger -- Kabelleger (talk) 19:45, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Morocco has a surprisingly highly developed railway system with synchronised timetables (with hourly services between several cities!), many electrified lines and heavy freight traffic on some lines. This picture, however, was taken on the outskirts of the network, and shows one of the three daily trains from Taourirt to Nador (the line to Nador was only completed a few years ago). It is hauled by a former SNCF Fret (freight division) class 72000, which kept its original livery, only the logos were replaced. --Kabelleger (talk) 19:45, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

I just feel a bit sad that chmelh's pic wasn't featured, while yours seems on good path to be so, mainly for the composition reason... despite him having been the first to had the idea (at least on commons, and to my knowledge).

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I note that this image was first uploaded to commons on 6 November 2006 and shown on an English wikipedia article on the same day. I am not sure what the guidelines were at that time; however, the guidelines on the English wikipedia now recommend the use of lower case file extensions - jpg or jpeg for photographs. The en wiki clearly indicates that the file extensions in the lower case (jpg or jpeg) are recommended there, and the en wiki says; "For uniformity, lower case file name extensions are recommended"; see en:Wikipedia:Image_use_policy#Image_titles_and_file_names. Further, the first steps guidelines on commons refers to language wikis for formatting guidelines; see Commons:First steps/Upload form#4. Set an appropriate file name. Also see, Commons:First_steps/Quality_and_description#Format_guidance, which says; "For photographs, use JPEG (file extension .jpg or .jpeg)". I think that this image should not be marked down here, because its file extension does not follow recommendations; however, please consider uploading using the lowercase jpg or jpeg and change from uppercase to lowercase if necessary. It is not commons policy to change the file extensions after upload, because of the workload involved. Snowmanradio (talk) 09:28, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Fatal embrace. A crab spider (Thomisus onustus) capturing a fly (Chrysomya albiceps). The prey was stabbed behind the head, where the nerves are concentrated, and quickly paralysed by the venom (see "other versions"). Soon digestive juices will be pumped into the fly's body to liquify the tissues, as spiders only ingest liquid food. All by Alvesgaspar (talk) 10:50, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Yes. First I had the same idea as you. But when zooming in I saw clearly visible square blocks. And waves are not square shaped (normally...) -- Dr. Schorsch (talk) 11:22, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
      • (edit conflict) There are definitely waves passing from left to right; you can see them changing as they reach the reef. They seem highly pixelated, however. They don't even look right at the 800x529px size shown on the image description page. Compare with this, for example. Other artefacts are also visible at full size, e.g. around the edges and corners of the shuttle, and noise on the land, but at least they disappear when the picture is viewed at a more reasonable size. --Avenue (talk) 11:40, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It seems this image has been retouched. I've uploaded the original here, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't suffer from these artifacts (at least not as bad). –Tryphon 14:39, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Reviewing the original has been one of my first mouse clicks. Sorry for not mentioning it here. The original has weaker colours but suffers from the same problem. Improving the contrast has just emphasised the problem. What we see here may be the technical limit of the jpeg format. The fine grain structure of the ocean waves has a really high spatial frequency. A compression of the picture is nearly impossible without loosing information. I assume that the problem was already created when taking the picture. Since we don't have raw data of it we can't recover the original data. Sorry, but I can't change my negative vote. -- Dr. Schorsch (talk) 06:35, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
      • I agree the same problems are apparent in the original NASA picture, although the artefacts (and especially the fringing) was made more obvious by the retouching. Anyway, now there is another reason to oppose the nominated version; the image description contains no documentation at all about this retouching. Colours and contrast seem to have been strengthened, and the image is slightly cropped, but we shouldn't have to guess at such things. --Avenue (talk) 08:35, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support, excellent use of light and color in a long exposure to create a dazzling night panorama. If I had to find some flaws, I'd wonder about the sky: at least some of the unevenness seems likely to be natural scattering of light from below, but some might be due to imperfect exposure/vignetting/white balance correction during stitching.Ilmari Karonen (talk) 16:10, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
  • I don't know where the unevenness could come from. But I don't think it's either because of vignetting, exposure (I use manual mode), or because of lighting condition possibly changing (we're in middle of night here). I've found out that sometimes (often) 3 exposures blending process adds such artifacts, but usually in the form of haloing around buildings... So ? Dirty atmosphere ? Possible I believe, because you see that the colored signs cast their colors on the space around them, and this is visible even on the thumbnail. - Benh (talk) 18:06, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
