  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose because of the vignetting/flash effect (see QI CR); I also think the flash is too direct, sometimes it causes a too flat lighting and it also makes some disturbing reflections on the Pelecanus (those reflections would be much softer or inexistent without that flash). --Kadellar (talk) 18:45, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Vondern Castle in Oberhausen, North Rhine-Westphalia, west front, photographed from footpath
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Tuxyso - uploaded by Tuxyso - nominated by Tuxyso -- Tuxyso (talk) 15:00, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support IMHO this perspective shows the castle in a hamonic composition (better than this perspective which over accentuates the left tower). I've nominated this one because the light was good and well lightened the front of "Burg Vondern". I've tried to integrate the lamps which belong to the castle in a non-distracting way. Look forward to your comments & reviews. -- Tuxyso (talk) 15:00, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very good! -- Arcalino (talk) 17:26, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Weak support I think you have done well picking a suitable composition cf your own comment about the light. Like the slight curved road leading into the castle, and the light is good, which brings out nice details in the brick and the texture on the roof. Not huge wow, but OK for me. --Slaunger (talk) 18:37, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- Thank you for your comments, Jee. Let me try to explain my motivations for making this kind of composition. When I was a kid the colored plates of flowers, exotic birds, cars or airplanes in the middle pages of the old paper encyclopaedias were the most consulted by everybody (the grown-ups included). What I'm trying to do here is to recreate those plates and transmit the some kind of amazement that I felt, using images of a much better quality and detail. A link is given to each individual picture, for those interested in the unmasked full-size versions. But the main objective of these posters is to show different kinds of flowers in a single image, in a way that is both instructive and attractive to the eye. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 17:32, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
      • Thank you, Alves for sharing your viewpoint and adding links to all individual pictures. I checked them; most of them worth an FP individually. JKadavoor Jee 06:51, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I admire your effort with creating this great posters. From a technically side the (flash)light on some single shots is for me a bit harsh (probably some better single shots on Commons could be found), but is is compensated by the very nice overall visual impression of the poster. --Tuxyso (talk) 20:27, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose while I like the concept and also agree with Alves that combined plates are something interesting, what this lacks IMHO is a common theme, like same family, or flowering in a location or at a certain time otherwise its just a random selection of pretty flowers that in and of itself isnt special. Gnangarra 10:37, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose For 2 reasons: the mask of the flowers does not look so natural too me, it is pretty "sharp", it can be definitely improved; but specially because the subject is unclear to me. I agree with Jkadavoor's comment and I am just getting oversaturated by these posters. The first posters (some years ago) were good, something different, the one with the white flowers was also interesting, the yellow, I abstained, and I see this has no end. The originality factor and therefore wow is gone, sorry Poco a poco (talk) 12:05, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Pretty and joyful. Poco is right for part: the masking job is sometimes a bit harsh, maybe the use of a softer brush could be better, in my opinion. But this very slight flaw does not prevent me for a support.--Jebulon (talk) 17:01, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Head portrayal of a Bubo Bubo (eagle owl)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I've selectively removed the red cast on the left. Do you think it is better that way? --Tuxyso (talk) 07:51, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
      • Seems better. I somewhat agree with Poco; but wish to retain my support. JKadavoor Jee 12:58, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The detail is FP level, the subject and crop are also interesting to me, but the lighting ruins it. There is overexposure on the head and the left side of the owl is in shadow vs the right side. A "portrait" under these conditions is not FP, sorry. Poco a poco (talk) 11:49, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your detailed review. I see your point with the light and shadow, but I disagree with your implication. A good portrayal is not one where the face / head is homogeneously lightened. The one here is no sterile studio repro photography. In classical portrayal ligtning you have one side of the face brighter than the other. See for instance the very good outdoor portrayal by Wilfredor. ✓ Done The overexposure was very marginal (imho no less of detail) but I've corrected it now. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:47, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
I am not convinced. The example you showed me was to me no FP, either. Sorry, but to me having one side brigther than the other ruins it, as said. Poco a poco (talk) 17:08, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question what's with the pinkish tinge? --SuperJew (talk) 19:45, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose that pinkish tinge --SuperJew (talk) 12:35, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
    • Have you done a cache refresh? Probably the falconer used pink color spray :) If someone can do a better correction I am open minded to it. For me (probably depends on the quality and setting of the monitor) is is barely perceptible. Compared to the other Bubo Bubo head portrayals this one is (imho) very good. --Tuxyso (talk) 13:21, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment These reasons for opposition do surprise me a lot, since this photo was accepted as a quality image (where the purely technical requirements are supposed to be higher, not lower). But ok ... darkweasel94 19:29, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
      • I don't know about theory, but in practice, requirements there are lower in every category. At least from my experience. Which doesn't mean that I think this should be a QI. --Julian H. (talk/files) 20:22, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
        • See COM:IG for where I got that information from. Seems that theory isn't always equal to practice - but that's ok. darkweasel94 21:16, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
          • I guess the situation is (approximately) the following: QIs have to meet a certain excellence through quality (say, 6 Quality-Points out of 10). FPs have to meet higher standards (something like 12 points), but they can assemble those through quality and content (Wow-factor, usefulness, rarity, ...). If a photo of the quality of yours would be the only one we had from a different planet, it would probably be a FP. But I personally would give it more something around a 4 on a quality-scale (all detail is lost due to heavy noise reduction, probably in-camera) and something around a 7 on a content scale and therefore, for me personally, it's not FP or QI. For QI, someone had a different opinion, which is perfectly fine. The same could happen here, it's only one vote. All mileages may vary. --Julian H. (talk/files) 09:45, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
            • Thank you for explaining your opposition in more detail. In fact, much of the noise reduction was done manually by me, since the originally somewhat noisy shadow in the background of the tram was disturbing me. I might be able to get a better result if I edit the original again, now with less noise reduction. I may nominate that edited version when I have it. darkweasel94 10:36, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

The ambient level of light is very low inside these caves, so artificial low-intensity yellow lights are used on the side-walks to better light up the sculptures.

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral The leaves do not belong to the same plant and this has to be specified clearly in the caption. I also feel that too little of the plant is in focus, especially in the upper part - maybe because you photographed the plant from above (?) rather than from the same height. Otherwise a beautiful picture. Gidip (talk) 20:32, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
    I improved the description of this page and of the file. Regarding focus and angle of photography I didn't understand your comment. It is obvious that I shoot it from a parallel plane and I think that the sharpness is pretty acceptable. Poco a poco (talk) 21:15, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The tilt-shift miniature faking technique and the oversaturated colors are funny gimmicks but do not add any informative value to the image. Moreover, even the central part of the image is unsharp at full resolution. Hence not FP-worthy IMO. -- MJJR (talk) 20:24, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

  • No; but we can take a new photo if it is not an extincted organism. (May I missed something? Is this particular picture has any importance like rarity, etc.?) JKadavoor Jee 08:52, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
My question is since 7 years: why is the sharpness of the whole image the most important thing in FP? Shall the photographer excuse an image for example because it is a rarity? Ok I give reasons for this image. This image shows one of the rarest plants worldwide. There is only a little number of habitats worldwide. For example: Great Britain has 6 habitats, Ireland 2 habitats, Bavaria 1 habitat. The Global Biodiversity information Facility says: there are only 11 number of occurences by 8 data providers in europe. The place of each habitat is a secret. Only this secret safeguards the survive. I think nearly nobody of the visitors of FP will see in his own life this rare plant in the own habitat. This was my reason to show this 25 years old image. --Michael Gäbler (talk) 17:53, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Jebulon, I'm confused. You voted oppose saying "I was there less than an hour ago. The perspective correction is too strong, and the light is not so good as it could be. Good picture, but not FP, IMO. Sorry." but then you wrote "I agree that this angle of view is extraordinary and far much better than "mine". "My" light and this picture would make a perfect FP, I guess." Are you still opposed or have you changed to support? --Pine 21:09, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
I think he's saying that while the angle of view is good, the light isn't. darkweasel94 02:52, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Indeed. Sorry for late answer. No reason to be confused, I still oppose. And I think the vertical stretch (perspective correction) is too much (the window is circular in real, not so oval). @ Jee : the access to this point of view is not easy, cause it is a military place. But I'll try some day... ( not now: it is spring, and trees have leaves again...)--Jebulon (talk) 12:24, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
