  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Movement blur and reflected light on all of the shells.--Snaevar (talk) 15:55, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Cowries are incredibly naturally glossy and it's not motion blur, the spots actually look like that, some smudgy, some very distinct. For contrast look really close to the shell on your bottom right, you should see some very distinct-looking lines with that sharp eye of yours. -- One, please. ( Thank you.) 16:45, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment ?? Movement blur? Dear Snaevar, have you ever seen an original specimen or have you compared with other photos of this species? This are the original colour spots! In addition, the specimens have a high glance surface like a mirror, it is impossible to make photos withoout reflections. Theses photos were made in daylight (in the shadow) without any additional lightning! --Llez (talk) 16:49, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I have one of these specimens and I understand the difficulty, but the reflections are really distracting. I'd suggest an umbrella with the softest of light possible. theMONO 20:42, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think, some reflections give a better impression of the special surface as to try to avoid any reflections at any rate (see also Alchemists photos of metals, e.g the recently featured Zirconium crystal bar). In addition, there are some differences in the glance of the specimens (due to age, conservation state etc.). Concerning umbrella: I made these photos in the shadow, as already said. Wheter you use an umbrella for producing shadow or other things, doesn't matter. Why an umbrella should reduce reflections, whereas other shadow-producing things don't? I tried different lightnings, this is very soft ligtning, the only situation without reflections was nearly complete darkness, impossible to make photos. --Llez (talk) 05:48, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support for own high qualities. Regarding the nominator's explanations, they sound obvious to me : "Movement blur" is here simply impossible for one who knows how are technically taken these pictures. The gloss is natural and show exactly how the shell is. Reflections are not distracting, but necessary in this case, in my opinion.--Jebulon (talk) 09:59, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting question.svg Question How would you arrrange the pictures? I'm waiting for your proposal. You are free to overwork this picture and to load up a version in another arrangement to show what you mean. I' very interested and I would be glad to learn more about good arrangements --Llez (talk) 18:26, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- I feel so sorry for the almost suffocated poor things... Alvesgaspar (talk) 18:25, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
    • PS - But I like the arrangement though I had given more space around the elements. Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:34, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
      • Dear Alvesgaspar, meanwhile the poor thing has more space to breathe. Better now? --Llez (talk) 21:14, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral -- Yes, but not special enough to get my support vote. A tough subject due to the high reflective surface. Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:55, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral - Good quality, no movement blur, lovely subject. My main concern is with the reflections; not that there are some (in fact they help show how glossy the surface is), but that they seem distractingly complex (at least in the two views on the left). --Avenue (talk) 03:01, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Looks good to me. Steven Walling 21:42, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
  • GA candidate.svg Weak support My issue is that I don't think the black looks good with these shells, and they could've maybe been spaced out more (though they might've seems bigger..). The grey, smudged spots do seem blurred comparatively and could be more contrast. Maybe red or a lite green would've been better? -- One, please. ( Thank you.) 01:53, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I always try several backgrounds and I look, which is the best (in my opinion). Perhaps you remember my last pictures, there was always a dicussion. When the backgound was grey, some wanted it greenish or black, when it was brown, some wanted it yellowish or black, now it is black, some want it... It is very difficult (or impossible?) to affect the taste of all. --Llez (talk) 06:01, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Black (or white) are obviously the only possible choices for such a shiny shell. You'd expect background reflection on the shell and with a colored BG it would spoil the image, while a fake colored BG would not show the reflection rendering an impossible artificial combination. The black background here is spot on. W.S. 11:48, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
        • Um, red is just as much a color as black ;-) and anyway the reflections are on the top not the sides so it would not I think look fake. -- One, please. ( Thank you.) 17:34, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

But still I don't like the compo, the reflections, and the too sharp masking here and there. Stick to the black background however (or even white would do) as the fancy colored ones detract from the subject.W.S. 11:44, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

A farmer who is hosting a pilot project to use stored rainwater for irrigation of food crops during Nicaragua's intense dry season.
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I uploaded this because I think it's an engaging portrait of an important subject: a full 29% of the 2.3 million people in Nicaragua work in agriculture. There are some blown parts of the clouds, but I think the subject matter, perspective, and overall composition make up for this. -- Steven Walling 01:36, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose In general the composition is ok (maybe a bit too centered for me). But besides the blown clouds, the left side of the farmers face is nearly too dark and the photo is tilted. --AngMoKio (座谈) 08:57, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Monumento a Miguel de Cervantes cropped.jpg

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info suggested crop
That's what i understood, too. Then, i suggest to get rid of everything not relevant : the tree on the left, the capitals of the columns, the building in the background, the other statues on both sides. This would lead to a much tighter crop, like the suggested one on the right. BTW, i also attempted to reduce the harshness of the contrast. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 02:23, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
That's a nice crop. However, I wanted to show a little bit more of the monument. Perhaps that's coming back against me, as the main objects are "smaller" in the whole image. Does anyone support the new cropped version?? Kadellar (talk) 15:47, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'm afraid this image has several problems. First of all, why is the top so dark? Unless it is in the morning of evening (which it is not), that should be the brightest part. The sky, especially near the top, is noisy, and the spokes of the windmill are overexposed. The composition is really nice, but the quality is not. What I don't understand is how a Sony A550 at ISO 200 could produce this much noise. --The High Fin Sperm Whale 18:51, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I beg to disagree. The highest point in a blue sky is almost always darker/bluer. Just google sky pictures to notice that. The physical explanation is that when you look at the horizon, you see a larger thickness of atmosphere, whereas when looking directly vertically above you, you see the "black" background of the universe through the thinest thickness of atmosphere. When such an effect is desired, it can be emphasized with a polarizing filter. I don't have an idea whether such a device has been used there. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 00:22, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
      • I've never noticed what you claim and I've been looking at the sky much of my life. Also, the Sun must've been behind the photographer to their left and about 45 or degrees above the horizon judging from the shadows. Unless polarizing was done as you say I have an inkling this might be accidental vignetting caused by the camera or the lens. -- One, please. ( Thank you.) 02:13, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
        • As one can see, I'm not a specialist of technics, and I often use wrong settings, but when I read some peremptory assertions, I think I'm not alone in this case... I confirm the use of a polarizing filter, the effect was my choice, and furthermore I think this picture is not sooooo noisy, even in the (dark ?) sky.--Jebulon (talk) 09:22, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As you already has seen in FPC.. I don't oppose because the image is a little noisy or because the user don't have the latest technology camera etc.. neither I make comments like "no wow for me" etc. Aesthetically all this composition doesn't seem nice (Formalism). If I was there I was trying to make a close photograph of the "torre" which has most encyclopedic value in this composition. Ggia (talk) 21:48, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Thanks again for your reply, I appreciate your openness. I just can confirm what already explained: I wanted to render the "old" building in its "new" environment (a Blue Flag beach). I could have made the umbrella smaller, but I would get an unbalanced picture. Excluding the umbrella and supports would give me a huge tower smothering the surrondings.

    • I just uploaded a new version with less CA (colors/crop/brightness may also differ slightly). Regarding sharpness: This is the 1:1 resolution from the camera plus parts of the picture are stretched because of the perspective correction. I don't think you'll ever get a perfectly sharp result under these circumstances (or at least not with gear that I can afford...). Of course I could have scaled it down to make it look better at 1:1, but that would have been a bit pointless. --Kabelleger (talk) 11:53, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't want to be grinch but I guess that the community miss to look exactly at the technical side of this picture. Sure: this is great picture with a very nice view over the bridge and the train and I would it support strongly if the noise is not so conspicuously. But with this noise and the muddy impression I am not sure it this picture can even get a QI. Because this picture was shoot with ISO 200 I guess the lens has not much luminous intensity or is otherwise simply bad. --Wladyslaw (talk) 08:49, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Imho, if we criticise the technical quality here (which is in my opinion for a landscape wide-angle shot quite good), it will encourage people to reduce their 12mpx images to 3mpx images before uploading them. --AngMoKio (座谈) 10:53, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
    • There is no need to reduce a 12 MP picture to 3 MP when the parameters are chosen well. We have other examples of great landscape images and with those one this picture has to compare. --Wladyslaw (talk) 11:00, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
      • Can you show me such a landscape photo? I think that we all (me included) are pretty much spoiled by the often stunning stitched panorama pictures, which mostly consist of several resolution-reduced pictures. I rarely saw a non-stitched wide-angle landscape shot with a stunning sharpness. Do you think that the whole photo here is quality-wise questionable or just parts of it? --AngMoKio (座谈) 11:21, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
        • e.g. this one File:HŽ 2044 between Turcin and Sveti Ilija.jpg is much better in technical view, I have chosen also an image of a train, a non-stitched panorama and even the same photographer. The whole image of this candidate has for me a muddy impresion, not only some parts at the edge. In my view this light/landscape-situation has to be take with a much lower exposure time than 1/640s so that it become a bit underexposed to be brighten later by digital image editing. So there would be a chance to conservate a bit more of the structure of the bridge and the train itself. --Wladyslaw (talk) 11:58, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
          • File:HŽ 2044 between Turcin and Sveti Ilija.jpg has been scaled down (I don't remember to what extent; I can upload a 1:1 version if you want). No surprise it is much sharper. @structure of the bridge: The bridge is not overexposed (I think), so there are no details lost - I don't understand what would be gained by a lower exposure and making it brighter afterwards. But I'm not sure, maybe this image is generally a bit too bright? --Kabelleger (talk) 13:09, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
  • ISO 100 won't cut it here. Something like 1/640 s exposure is necessary to keep the moving (!) train sharp, and I don't want to go below F6.3 or so because the image quality gets worse at larger apertures. --Kabelleger (talk) 11:27, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Will do (in a few hours when I'm back at home). When I uploaded that picture, I was lazy and took the scaled down version from my web site, since I never intended to nominate it for FP... Lens was the very same 17-55 F2.8 IS (no that's not the kit ;) ) and 50D as this picture was taken with. --Kabelleger (talk) 17:59, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Here you go: File:HŽ 2044 between Turcin and Sveti Ilija hires.jpg Note that I think the smaller version is not only scaled down, but also sharpened a bit. --Kabelleger (talk) 22:30, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I'll jump in the discussion with the following comments:
    • This picture has everything to be a FP, and it seems quite obvious given the tremendous support it already has.
    • Looking at the EXIF data, the picture was taken at 17mm, which is already quite wide-angled. I don't know with which lens it was taken, but if it was not something like Canon's 10-22mm, the lens used here is probably at its shortest focal length and will thus exhibit technical imperfections, specially at the corners. The lens was correctly stopped down to f/6.3 to a) increase DoF and b) improve quality at the corners. These are limitations of the equipment itself, and the picture should not be penalized for this. Otherwise, ALL wide-angle photography taken with a FF (which is even more problematic at the corners) would never be able to make FP, which would be ridiculous.
    • Color saturation and contrast look very natural to me.
    • Looking at the histogram, I don't see any overexposure to be concerned about. In fact, there are only 5 pixels at the 255 level. --Murdockcrc (talk) 19:00, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info you may want to notice the retouched picture tag on the image page. in addition this scenery is an indoor shot of a ship's carpenter's workshop. the whole construction reminded me of a shack missing a wall so people could look into it. sadly they put a rather harsh spotlight on the location, instead of a more smooth light solution. the digital altering already performed contained increasing visibility of the shadows and decreasing the effects of that spotlight. i tried to create an hdri but was not satisfied with the results of tonemapping for this particular scenery. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 08:41, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

I don't know much about roller chains, but the en wiki roller chain article says they can be "bushingless", with a tube stamped onto the inner plate instead of a separate bushing. This diagram confuses me, because the inner plate on the left has a bushing tube attached (suggesting this chain is bushingless), but the one on the right does not (suggesting the opposite). Is the diagram trying to show one type, the other, or some hybrid? It would be useful if the image description explained this. --Avenue (talk) 14:27, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I just spent 2 days in a swamp photographig wildlife. Birds are very hard to photograph, for they don´t like humans encroaching on them. This photograph is a good photograph in general terms, and while it lacks sharpness at 100%, when viewd at smaller size, which is how it will be reproduced anyway, it is definitely acceptable. To expect things to be razor sharp all the time is not necessrily neither good policy nor good photography. Just as enlarging film negatives eventually produce grain and degraded quality, so do digital images. It is all about reproduction size and viewing distance. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 16:07, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The animation might not work for everyone in an instant because it is an optical illusion. Reading The Spinning Dancer can help in one experiencing this effect. Additionally, this animation is sufficiently large. Commons has animated FP's which are much smaller like File:Frontal lobe animation.gif, File:Radial engine.gif and File:Zipper animated.gif. --Jovian Eye talk 15:01, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
      • My point wasn't about how easy or difficult it might be for me personally to see the illusion. It was that the illusion (which according to the article relies on the absence of depth cues) would be stronger without the depth cue given by the reflection of the raised foot. Since I think the animation could easily be significantly improved, I don't see this version as an FP. --Avenue (talk) 09:50, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Cherry plum flower
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Peach flower; created, uploaded and nominated by Angel (talk) 21:19 7 May 2011
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Angel (talk) 21:19 7 May 2011
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It is a nice photo of a beautiful flower, but not up to the quite high standards expected for a featured picture. But I think it is cool to see a 13 year old nominate own contributions here. The centralized composition is not so interesting and there is quite some chromatic abberation seen at the edge of the petals. For a plant picture I would recommend adding the latin name of the plant as well, and consider geocoding it. --Slaunger (talk) 21:53, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
