  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral I wouldn't say it's oversaturated. I believe the yellow and red of this vehicle have been chosen to be very bright (emergency vehicle) and with a Hight Contrast pun intended. Yet, I don't think it should be featured : it is technically sound, it is of encyclopedic value and interest, yet it is not stunning. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 13:50, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I know a lot of these cars here in Germany and I can assure: the colors aren't oversaturated and when I have the sun in contemplation the colours are quite lifelike. --kaʁstn Disk/Cat 14:34, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Mbz1 (talk) 16:08, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, but the quality is too poor. The top gets more and more hazy, and I think the camera was bumped when this was taken. It's hard taking photos out of a helicopter's window. --The High Fin Sperm Whale 17:01, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
It's OK no worries, but the image has a great EV and is FP on English wikipedia.--Mbz1 (talk) 18:19, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose what a great chance to illustrate the area. alas the point and shoot camera quality is imho not sufficient for fp. a reshoot seems unlikely but would be great if done with better equipment. could be something for the picture wishlist. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 19:19, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting delete.svg  OK, got the message.--Mbz1 (talk) 19:23, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Just two opposes and you're withdrawing? It's got my Symbol support vote.svg Support. I've seen much crappier pictures make FP simply because they're technically flawless. Sometimes I think all the rules here distract from what really makes a good picture and that's not something you can define in such a rigid manner. --Calibas (talk) 02:43, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Thank you, Calibas! This image was actually taken by my husband with his point-and-shot Nikon. Me with my Canon XTI sat on a different side, and I even did not see this place, leave alone take image. I read what you said about the image to my husband, and he asked me to thank you too. It's OK, if the image is not going to be FP on commons although, if it were, it would have been the only FP taken by my husband Smile --Mbz1 (talk) 03:13, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Please correct the "author" field on the file page and ask your husband to E-mail consent to permissions-commons. Then tag the file {{OTRS pending}}. Good picture, BTW. Walter Siegmund (talk) 20:25, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment To me the bridge is out of focus. I'm not sure of the reason, but I don't like it--Miguel Bugallo 01:40, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - too much blue, dull colors. Something a bit closer to this would be better I think. --Aktron (talk) 09:37, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
  • First, the other pic you mention is taken in fall, which obviously accounts for the reddish leaves ; second, IMHO your better pic is strongly oversaturated, whereas the present one is just natural. Here, the green patches of grass are brilliant green, as they should be, and not glow-in-the-dark-fluo-green. The foliage is a muted darker green, and the stones and water are in shades of pinkish and blueish grey. Not that a slight white balance tuning wouldn't be useful, I've not checked into that. But the dull colors argument doesn't make the cut. (did I say IMHO? No? Ok, here it is: IMHO). --MAURILBERT (discuter) 13:25, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Well that is why i wrote "something a bit closer closer". It IS oversaturated and the green is unnatural, yeah. What I wanted to say is that the green in your picture - YES it IS brilliant - but it is the same green and the stones are the same grey all over the picture. The place is good but a different light might be much better. Fog might make it better (making it more hmm.. how to say that... "plastic?" even with these colors) as well as a sunny day (a picture of some similar valley taken at clear day was few days ago nominated). --Aktron (talk) 14:59, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
  • I think it's just overcast from a cloudy day. --IdLoveOne (talk) 19:47, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I think, the natural background of the Cour Marly would be too distracting. IMO the white backgound is the best solution, not black, because of some dark parts of the statue. --Llez (talk) 05:23, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support per Llez --Paris 16 (talk) 06:39, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Yes you are right. There are many other statues is this place, and a masked photo was the best way to isolate the subject from an ugly and distractive background. If white was not the best choice, it is neutral anyway. Maybe I'll try an attempt with a sample of the main color of the real backgroung (something between ochre and sand)--Jebulon (talk) 08:56, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

    • This image was provided by the Tropenmuseum for the ocassion of the GLAM wiki conference in Paris. it shows a Samo man playing a war horn. the Samo people are underrepresented on en:wiki yet, getting this picture featured helps to find others who can contribute information about them.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Υπέρ --патриот8790Say whatever you want 04:02, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose noisy, bad crop. Bad technical quality in general, even for a pic taken in the 70's. In my opinion, FP status is to notice the special qualities of a picture, not to make anthropological advertisements. Sorry for poor english, it needs a long discussion, but I have not the vocabulary...--Jebulon (talk) 09:30, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment the image has not been cropped at large. so this might be more a question of general composition. i checked for rules of thirds which works well here. note that there is no information available on the technical equipment used to produce this image. neither camera model and used film nor scanner were mentioned on the source. a statement on technical quality can be difficult if these variables are unknown. feel free to write me a personal note in french/german so i can get your point. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 10:13, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose -- I agree with Jebulon. Alvesgaspar (talk) 10:03, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with Jebulon. I retire the "support", and I think what I do--Miguel Bugallo 12:33, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Having pictures like this and cherishing them is more important then having the next picture of the Taj Mahal, a fly or other critter. This is not an an "anthropological advertisement", it is because of this picture that we find that a whole people is not known in our Wikipedias. The notion that featured pictures is only because of the quality of a picture is wrong in principle. Thanks, GerardM (talk) 13:33, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
    • But this picture is very grainy (better word than "noisy") IMO, whatever it shows. I must be very careful in using dangerous words, but a picture cannot be FP only because it shows something or somebody "exotic" for northern-western eyes... Sorry I do not want to hurt anybody... I hope you understand what I mean.--Jebulon (talk) 18:14, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support this b&w photo seems that has no whites (but only greys) - and this can be corrected (it is a technical issue). It has a well balanced composition (nice aesthetically) and it is an educational subject. Ggia (talk) 09:57, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment i'm not sure whether i get your point here. levels were adjusted, resulting in minimizing sheer black and white areas. the shirt of the samo man was slightly darkened via levels, resulting in increased contrasts in that particular area. overall the changes were rather subtle on this image. please let me know what kind of correction you would apply here. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 10:07, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment looking to the images.. using an image processing software.. I saw that applying some masks you can enhance this image..

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I uploaded an enhanced version of the original image.. I hope that you like it.. Ggia (talk) 22:19, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment thank you very much for taking time creating and uploading this version. my attempt was to do a restoration and therefore change as little as possible. lighting up shadows on the head or the war horn itself at this extent was therefore out of the question. your version features enhanced contrasts which i did not see as part of the original photograph. both version have a right to exist - i see your version as an opportunity for printing and mine as an opportunity for those interested in the "original" photograph. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 07:59, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment-- The two comments are not contradictory, although with the "please don't" I think Alvesgaspar is applying his "let the poor thing breath" too dogmatically.

Pictogram voting info.svg Info This quiet place belongs to the monastery of Vatopedi. Since 2008 a real-estate scandal is taking place in Greece. [1] The monastery of Vatopedi exchanged less valuable, rural land of Vistonida (this area around the lake belongs to Vatopedi monastery) with state-owned valuable land [2]. These land swaps are often a discussion in the mass media. They say that this land-swap cost to the Greek-state 100m euros. [3] Ggia (talk) 21:01, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

    • Almost 100% of the people in the world know about the Paris - the famous French capital. Almost 99 % of the people don't know how big is Paris actually...There are equally spread misleading numbers from 2 milions to 8 millions inhabitants. These two gray shapes gives the answer - in this case about Nottingham. First, these two gray shapes presents what is the difference between the two numbers that are connected with the name of Nottingham - 249,000 and 666,000. Second, these two gray shapes gives the proportion in geometrical way which makes the matter far clearer. And third, these two gray shapes show us the connection between the area and the three most important lines of this place - Trent River, M1 motorway and the county border. I think this scheme is of a high educational value. As for the so called fuzzy background, it is intentionally because it is of secondary importance, even firstly I think the shapes and the three lines to be on white background. --MrPanyGoff (talk) 11:46, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- Drawing a good map is not an easy task! Depending on its purpose, you should start by deciding exactly what kind of information you want to represent, which area is to be covered and in what scale. Only after it is possible to make a rational choice of the specific categories of information to depict and which symbology to use. In the present case, and according to your own comments, most of the information depcited in the background is superfluous and only serves to affect, in a negative way, the legibility of the map. On the other hand the polygons, lines and legend you have added lack the sophistication and accuracy we would expect from a featured illustration. One question: why not add a graphical scale of distances instead of the vectors? -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 18:45, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

    • Sorry no. The perspective correction was very soft, only concerning the leaning columns left and right. I was not "just in front" of the monument, and that is enough. I wanted to show a part of the columned gallery at the base of the dome, and it was one of my very precise intentional educative point of view (look at the protective nests around the capitals). As it is very high, and as I was very close, one or two steps right were enough for this "effect", which is not strange, but only optical and due to physics rules. Thanks for review.--Jebulon (talk) 21:29, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
      • Thanks for the explanation. Than it must have been an asymmetrical crop. Still feels strange. --Elekhh (talk) 20:02, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose think it would be better if taken from another angle, some figures missing description. Athyllis (talk) 18:50, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
    • Please see explanation above about "other angle". If I were in front (centered) of the monument, one couldn't see an interesting part of the dome. About descriptions : Please read file page. The figures without descriptions are anonymous : soldiers of different arms (infantry, cavalry or artillery), and students of the Ecole Polytechnique. I didn't "square" them not to be more confusing.

    • Thanks for support. The purpose was to show especially the pediment (with explanations), the Dome and the lantern. It is funny that the debate is on the composition, I was not aware of this (maybe because I know the whole monument very well, and it is not a question to me...) Really interesting and enriching I'm not sure everybody agree you're becoming softer Clin, but I'm sure you are not so old.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose-- Odd composition. If cutting the building was to isolate it there are clever ways to do it. If it was to show a detail it is not clear what is it, the dome or the frontispiece? Grinatyou (talk) 13:52, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Grintanyou. It looks like the dome is sliding off like a melting wedding cake; also, a closer shot of the tympanum in the pediment would be educational concerning identities of the sculptures but not this view.Alanscottwalker (talk) 23:09, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
    • I'm sorry but I think this kind of comments are a bit disdainful and too much peremptory in my opinion. I would be very happy to have a look on what the three last new reviewers and opponents are able to do here before assuming so modestly...Some could sometimes open the files at high resolution, or read the description page, maybe.

      • My point was that we could easily produce a somewhat better quality image by starting with NASA's image, instead of the version from Flickr; i.e. that the quality is poorer than it needs to be.

But I had started doing so before your query, and I've finally avoided distractions long enough to get something sorted out. Here's my version: File:Sarychev Volcano edit.jpg. I'm sure others here would do it differently, and probably better, but I think this is an improvement on the nominated version, most clearly in the sea to the left of the eruption column. --Avenue (talk) 14:08, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

I suppose that Alvesgaspar likes more light to the dark parts.. IMO the dark parts of the image support the form of the Grubenlampe. I mean that the dark parts of the image drops the attention to the Grubenlampe. Ggia (talk) 11:57, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
Then he should write that und shouldn't compare pictures of a Wikipedia recreational photographer with photos which were stitched with images taken with (f***ing) expensive cameras. --kaʁstn Disk/Cat 13:47, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
Similar comments to (recently) Alvesgaspar (concerning comparing work of other users) you can read here [6] in this nomination: [7]. Probably this issue should be discussed in the talk page.. Personally I find no-sense comparing a user work with another user.. This kind of comparison can be made ie. when we have the same subject photographed by different users under different lighting condition etc.. Ggia (talk) 14:37, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
  • There seems to be a serious misunderstanding about the goal of FPC and the evaluation criteria. Two important notes: first, we assess images here, not photographers. When I referred to Diliff's pictures, I was not comparing authors or even their creations as a whole, but just giving examples of excellence in certain classes (panos or night shots). In the present case, other very good examples exist of night pictures, e.g. this one; second, it should be irrelevant for assessment purposes what kind of camera was used, either a point-and-shoot or a f**ing expensive one. The goal of FPC is to identify "the best Commons has to offer". Finally, I want to emphasize once more that it is the priviledge of the reviewer to use whatever kind of arguments or examples he wishes to support his honest opinion, provided he remains within scope and addresses the picture, not the author. For the second time, Ggia suggests to start a discussion on this issue. Please go ahead! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 11:05, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
  • There is no misunderstanding from my point of view. I already wrote I suppose that Alvesgaspar likes more light to the dark parts... From the Arc Triomphe image I understand also this: that you like the image to have light in the dark parts. As I wrote above.. the dark parts of the image IMO works here creatively.. they drop the attention directly to the to Grubenlampe... this is also why I support the image.. because the dark parts of the image.. are not flaws. I understand that you consider Diffs photos examples of excellence.. but this is your opinion.. all the featured images of commons are examples of some kind of excellence. Comparing Arc Triomphe image with this image has no sense.. these are two different images (subject) and they have different lighting conditions. It has sense to compare an image with another image the same subject (ie. with same or different lighting conditions). Ggia (talk) 13:05, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

So here for the convince is the version you reviewed and found error.--Mbz1 (talk) 21:48, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
    Yeah I know the annotations gets mixed up when the pixel size changes, so no problem. The "cut" tree has improved. There are still some oddities concerning softness in the same region. I guess it is due to stitching between two photos having quite different focal distances, but it is really not a big deal nor a showstopper for me. --Slaunger (talk) 06:15, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
    I had a look at the geocode. Are you sure it is correct? I cannot locate the water body in the front of the photo? Is that because it is a seasonal lake, which just is not there in the satelite photos? I am also a bit confused as to the direction you are looking in? I recommend clarifying that by adding a heading to the geocode. If it is a seasonal body of water it is perhaps worthwhile to elaborate a little on the file page description. That reminds me: Do you know the Geolocator tool. I only realized how cool and easy to work with that is recently. With a few clicks you get a complete {{location}} template including heading, size of the area etc., really cool and easy to use.
    Finally, I realize the photos metadata are lost in the stitching process. Could you add some details about equipment, number of photos used, other general conditions on the file page as a substitute for the missing EXIF? It adds value and informative content. --Slaunger (talk) 06:15, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I chose to nominate this picture for several reasons. The most important one is because its informative value, ie, infrastructure, vegetation, agruculture, and more information that one gets observing small details. This picture transports the viewer to the location. Photographically speaking, yes, it could be better, but you would have to wait for days and days and days for wheather conditions to improve. However, considering the circumstances and the objective of the image, which is to document and inform, I think that the picture is featurable.

      • My original assessment was based on looking at the photo in full resolution. It has improved a little, but it is all treatments of symptoms for non-optimal light in my opinion.

Was it trivial to id?
I recommend categorizing to and creating Category:Synodus binotatus as a subcategory to Category:Synodus.
A good illustration of camouflage. I have tried underwater photography a little myself and I have learned that it is not at all easy to get good technical quality. But even then I think the image quality is not good enough for FP, especially concerning sharpness of the subject and (color) noise.
Has it been color corrected a lot? It seems too red or perhaps a little oversaturated IMO.
Concerning the quiz, I did not find something clearly identifiable besides the fish, although that big, blurry, pinkish something in the upper left corner looks a bit odd. I have no idea if that is what you are hinting at, nor what it could possible be.... --Slaunger (talk) 22:55, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
Please try again to find something extra at the image. It cannot be mistaken with anything. About ID. I knew it was a lizard fish, but I was not sure which one. So I went to this site and looks like mine is Synodus binotatus, but they say it is hard to ID. --Mbz1 (talk) 23:40, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
I agree with you that the fish has a visual appearance, which resembles very well photos I can find of the two-spot lizard fish (S. binotatus), without being able to rule out that it could be another species. Don't you think you should modify the identification to probably Synodus binotatus on the file page and categorize it to Category:Synodus (or a new "Unidentified..." subcategory) to be on the safe side? Regarding the ongoing quiz: I give up Smile. --Slaunger (talk) 22:58, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
I asked about ID of this fish at the diving forum I am posting sometimes. So far nobody has responded yet, but I hope they will eventually. The second fish is in the lower part of the image. The eyes are seen clearly and cannot be mistaken with pebbles. Do not give up. Smile--Mbz1 (talk) 23:04, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Can it be taken again? Grinatyou (talk) 13:49, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
    Well in general I agree with your assessment of the composition, but, if it were taken from a different angle half of it would have been in a shadow versus all of it sun lit as it is now. The plant is 4 hours drive from my home and probably the seeds are gone by now.--Mbz1

    Not really. This image was taken by an accident. I've never seen those plants before, and never knew they are growing up in Yosemite National Park. We drove 4 hours to see the Autumn's colors in Yosemite. Autumn's colors in California is not so easy to find, and I miss seeing those colors. So we drove 4 hours one way to see Autumn, but most of the trees still were green :( Yet Yosemite was beautiful as always.

    Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Well, yes the "U turn problem" is solved with the new crop, but now I think you are letting almost too much in there. I think a compromise between the two crops would have been better, but I do not think it will be a good idea with more versions using the same file name, as it is really confusing for other reviewers to revisit it repeatedly, so I'll just switch to neutral. Is this overriding of the same file name with quite different versions triggered by the new alternatives rule, there was all this fuss about? (In that case I think we need to revisit that rule). --Slaunger (talk) 22:02, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The first 3 are views of the highest scientific position. It is a mandatory exercise. the bottom image test to give a less austere view, which we have more familiar. Backgrounds should be as neutral as possible, even if sometimes I give a gradient. In this case it enhances the material. This tool is very aesthetic. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:19, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The subject is interesting, but I also do not feel convinced about the composition. It was only after I read the caption that I realized it was the same specimen viewed at different angles. I think that for an FP that should be immediately visible from just seeing the photo. I also lack a sense of depth in the photo of the Azilian point. I think that has to do with the placement of the light sources. You have this related photo File:Harpon 2010.0.3.5. Global.JPG. That one is IMO better at addressing the depth of the objects and here the shadows and angles from the light sources seem to be better at illustrating the texture as well. The black mirror effect in that photo also helps. Maybe something similar could be done here? I also think that too much space seems to be used for the black background. --Slaunger (talk) 21:55, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg CommentVery well observed. What I preferred was the transparency of the material, so I placed the light so what makes the best, which hindered the recognition of form.

There is a version with reflection I will also pay, out of competition. ✓ Done--Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:19, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
    • Thank you for your answer. I guess it is much a matter of taste and there is no absolute truth in this respect. I am not just sufficiently in awe for the presentation of the specimen to give it a support. 2.7 g is a lot lighter than I had anticipated. maybe it would be worthwhile to add this information to the file page as it adds value? --Slaunger (talk) 21:54, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
      • You're quite right, even photography science is not immune to fashions. The weight of each piece is known. But it is a sensitive issue, many Museum Curators do not want to give this information to avoid aftershocks too close to the original. Do an exception to inform the debate and makes this information in the caption.✓ Done --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 08:15, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
        • Thanks for adding the information (and for making the necessary phone calls to get allowance). I was surprised to learn that many curators does not want to give this information to avoid aftershocks too close to the original? I must admit that I do not quite understand exactly what that means? Maybe it is a language barrier thing? Exactly what is the risk by providing the weight of a specimen? Sorry to ask such a stupid question Smile.--Slaunger (talk) 11:16, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
          • fr:Ce n’est pas une question stupide. De très nombreux Musées (Sciences ou art) ne donne jamais le poids qui est une information sensible.

Teaser for "El Cosmonauta"
Are you saying the permission under a suitable commons licensee is visible on the poster, itself? If so, where? Alanscottwalker (talk) 00:33, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
On the left side, right after Angel Trancon. You have to zoom in to see them clearly, and they're iconic, not textual.--Prosfilaes (talk) 01:35, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
I just reread the last thing I said here, and realized that it sounds...snippy. Sorry; no snippiness intended. We're all BFFs here. Bobamnertiopsis (talk) 01:44, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. Even so, the image guidelines state: "No advertisements, signatures, or other watermarks in image. Copyright/authorship information of all images should be located on the image's description page and should not interfere with content of the image." Alanscottwalker (talk) 02:52, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
It is a poster; those things are part of the content of the image.--Prosfilaes (talk) 03:06, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Note, for example, File:Joan of Arc WWI lithograph2.jpg. It lists both the artist (Haskell Coffin), and the place of printing (United States Printing and Lithograph Co.) on the poster. Posters, by nature, have to be self-contained, and thus tend to include their own copyright data/everything else. This one is part of an ambitious effort to make an entire movie and release it under a cc-by-sa license; I nominated it for dual reasons; I think the image is poignant and stirring, and I think there's nothing else like it on the Commons (a modern-day movie poster, that is.)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for support. Yes I can do that, but it is very old, and seems tilted so in real (please note that the base is horizontal). It is not a 19th century vision (or restoration) of the middle age, and I've finally decided to let it as it looks, and nevertheless submit it in FPC... Let's wait for other reactions.--Jebulon (talk) 00:38, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
