The windmill looks quite distorted/leaning backwards, probably due to pointing the lens upward to get it all into the frame. This shot of yours works much better for me in that regard, plus it has nicer clouds/sky. --El Grafo (talk) 15:38, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per Martin: the file is tiny, the picture's noisy, the effect is overdone. It's a bit of a cliché. Didn't we have a similar picture a while back? The heavy vignetting takes this beyond a standard photo (see similar File:Suspenso.jpg) to self-made non-notable religious imagery. I've no problem with Commons hosting/featuring such photographic imagery (any site that votes exploding/flaming light bulbs as image of the year nearly twice in a row clearly likes photographic art). But I think the standard should be higher than this, which is typical of a lot of WLM that looks impressive on a small monitor but couldn't even be printed A4. -- Colin (talk) 07:24, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

    Well, it's surely a matter of taste but I can tell you that I drove 3 hours (one way) to take pictures of this 11th-century jewel Poco2 08:35, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Hmm, you usually provide much more details in your nomination. 11th century? Looks very recently renovated. I see now that it is historically interesting, but I maintain it isn't photographically interesting. It's a very simple building shot in hard direct light. I think File:San Juan de Busa, Oliván, Huesca, España, 2015-01-07, DD 24.JPG is better and I'd probably support that on the grounds that the blue sky and snowy mountains add to the image and composition. With this nomination, the fence and two shrubs are fighting for attention. -- Colin (talk) 09:49, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Colin, I didn't provide much information because I'm travelling and this time I really had to optimize the weight (as I had to wear it for many kilomeyers on St James's Way), so I didn't take my laptop and editing here with a smartphone is really (at least to me) a pain in the ass... Regarding the fence the idea is that those lines guide to the subject, rather than distract of it. Poco2 17:28, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --King of ♠ 00:41, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose First of all: The light is absolutely beautiful and I find the building interesting enough. I actually said "wow" when I zoomed in on the building, as I had definitely not expected this level of detail. So why am I opposing this? Well, like Colin, I'm not really convinced by the composition. I can see that you put quite some thought into this, and you almost got it, but … how do I explain this? To me, it's not really a shot of the building alone, as there's too much other stuff going on in the frame (mountains in the background, etc.) But it's also not really a landscape shot, as the building is too dominant for that. It's somewhere in-between those two. Maybe if you'd moved in a bit closer from that position to get behind that first bush on the right? Then you'd still have had some of that nice fence in frame … --El Grafo (talk) 10:07, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I like it. I might like it better with a higher camera position to include more of the landscape in the background into the picture, but I also understand the appeal of the silhouette of the building against the sky. — Julian H. 11:40, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

  • A good rule of composition in landscape photography (of course, it's not carved in stone): foreground subject, second plan (here the beach) and background (here the mountain). Here your foreground is occupied by regularly set dry grass, not eye-catching and at the limit of DoF, particularly at the left. The pine trees are set at the sides and get lost... or are too present; I'm undecided about their status. The right one, like Laitche wrote (and that's why I was talking about PoV), is invading and hiding the beach but hasn't force enough to get above the horizon; that's why I don't think it balances the composition. And about contrast of colors and spaces, right. But your foreground lacks color and is a prominent mass of undistinguishable grass taking too much space compared to what you want to show as the subject of the image. I don't know the place but my recommendation, if you allow me, would be to go a few steps to the right and closer to these pine trees in order to give them a reasonable height to counterbalance the mountain and set them as foreground subject, at the right. Mountain at the half left, getting rid of the left pine trees (or the pine trees at the left and the mountain at the center-right, depending how you can set the composition to show the beach). A lower sun, with more appealing light may also help. Your image is nice but a bit too common in my opinion. Hope this helps. Sting (talk) 21:44, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
  • PS: and don't be so worried about your language or your “name”. ;-)
  • PS2: When I vote or comment here, I try – at least – to be constructive [with arguments] (edit) and transmit my little experience/knowledge for the photographer better his work. It isn't always well accepted [and I may be wrong] (edit), but that's part of the deal. And on the other hand, if one nominator here expects only praises about his work, well, imo he's in the wrong place because it's about voting here, that means accepting hearing about pros and cons, which should lead to a bettering of the work (again, my opinion). If it's only about promotion, barnstars, medals and self-promotion, I suggest to turn towards the social networks.

      • Diliff, as I wrote above. I was aiming common kingfisher so I had to fix the camera location and lens setting, cause as soon as they come I could capture the bird (couldn't change the lens) and I was thinking about stacking too but I didn't want to stack with so many photos (wanted a few photos for stacking) that's why I chose f/16 however when I saw photos on my pc, I gave up HDR + stacking...

    • For the record, I don't have a problem with the settings really (they don't cause me to oppose), but they are far from optimal. f/16 results in a less-than-sharp image, and I don't think it was necessary to maintain depth of field across the subject (a guess). If anything, a more narrow DoF would assist the composition IMO because the background be be better separated from the subject. Anyway, yes I agree it's an interesting effect.

  • Benh lens is mentioned in category, Samyang, and no other would do such in single shot. PicutreS ?... I haven't used NR till Samyang (with some exceptions), which gave some more noise in edges of photos (especially if they are underexposed). Here, walls were denoised, not frescoes. Comapare it with 1st version. Lens is sharp. --Mile (talk) 10:49, 27 September 2015 (UTC) p.S. Set at sweet spot of Samyang: f/5.6 and focus distance dot minor back from ∞
  • Thanks. I don't think everyone could tell this is a fisheye at first glance, unless they know the place (couldn't add a link to a 360° view of it, but a quick Google takes us there). As for noise, I like when surfaces retain their textures, which I don't feel is the case here. Still a good shot. - Benh (talk) 19:39, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

There may be more pleasing shapes for Catch lights than a square, but I think that this is totally acceptable. But there are some other things keeping me from supporting: Usually, I would expect the point of focus to be on the eyes instead of the nose. Speaking of eyes: It might be the lightning, but it looks as if she has some kind of Strabismus? The right side of her face is a bit dark for my taste – I know that "short lighting" is a valid lighting pattern in portrait photography, but in this case it doesn't really work for me. But I do like the over-all quality of the light as well as her pose. I think there's actually quite a bit of "wow" in how you managed to "arrange" her in a classic portrait position. --El Grafo (talk) 11:44, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Because of your view in terms of the background and the arrangement of the blossoms a picture of this plant could hardly get a FP. This is its natural look and environment I want to show. Also there is blurriness neither by noise reduction nor by compression(?). Certainly using F2,8 would be sharper than F16 but then I wouldn't have achieved enough DOF for this blossom cluster. The bright spots is the sky shining through the higher vegetation in the evening. The former version was to bright for me. The colours are better now. But it's OK that you don't like it. --Hockei (talk) 13:14, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
It looks like some algorithm's result to me but ultimately, it doesn't matter. The result is not sharp and other images here show that it's possible to get much sharper results. Regarding your opinion that a picture of this plant could hardly get FP status: I'm sure it's possible to find such a plant with a slightly less busy background. But even if not: There is no guarantee that every subject must be capturable such that it deserves FP status. If that's not possible, that's ok and changes nothing. In total, the vast majority of subjects is hardly material for FP photos. — Julian H. 14:06, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes I agree with Laitche. There are other problems with this image IMO but the river looks like this simply because a long exposure was necessary, not because there's a problem with the technique. It's not always possible to photograph a scene the way the eyes see it (and anyway, in low light, our eyes don't perceive colour very well, would you argue that we should desaturate a photo to better match our eyes?). We can try to match our mind's eye and it's great if we can succeed, but in this case I don't think it's possible. We have to accept that the camera sees things very differently to the eye. Diliff (talk) 17:16, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
What's the other problems, Diliff. I'm interested. --Laitche (talk) 19:44, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
The main problem is that it is completely unnatural and overdone. Short: ugly (my taste. Same value as yours)--Jebulon (talk) 22:12, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I think the HDR has perhaps been pushed a bit too far. The sky looks a bit strange. It has the coolness of the blue hour but doesn't have the tonality that I would expect from the blue hour (a deep blue sky, bright incandescent lighting and deep shadows etc). Nice lighting is really important for a night/blue hour photo and I think this might have been taken a bit too early when it wasn't at its best. It feels a bit dull and grey. And apart from the church and the tower on top of the hill, there doesn't seem to be much of historical interest in the scene. Most of the buildings seem fairly modern. Compositionally, it's also missing a 'je ne sais quoi', for me. Diliff (talk) 08:59, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

    • It's complicated, like anything involving the structure of the United Kingdom and the four countries that it's comprised of. ;-) As per the Wikipedia article, it's actually a very recent creation (2009) but the building it inhabits is much older. It's the highest court for "all matters under English and Welsh law, Northern Ireland law and Scottish civil law" but not criminal law in Scotland, which has its own criminal Supreme Court. Also, "Because of the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty, the Supreme Court is much more limited in its powers of judicial review than the constitutional or supreme courts of some other countries. It cannot overturn any primary legislation made by Parliament. However, it can overturn secondary legislation". So, to answer simply, I don't exactly know...!

Yes Julian, if you look the file history you will find that I was trying solve this problem. If you give me more information about what areas look too strange, it could be ussefull to improve the image. Thanks for your comments. A hug --The Photographer (talk) 16:40, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Hm, I see your point. And I have a hard time defining exactly what looks strange to me, so I guess it's not fair to oppose. I think compositionally, what bugs me the most is that the columns that dominate the architecture don't actually stand out that much contrast-wise and therefore make it harder to anchor parts of the image in the third dimension. Anyway, maybe I'm just too critical. One thing though: There is a piece of white background form the perspective correction on the lower left. — Julian H. 06:45, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
You are not too critical, its your opinion and I like it. --The Photographer (talk) 16:24, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Definitely a QI, but not enough wow for FP. I think this image may be trying to do too much by taking in so much area. You might do better to show us this area's uniqueness by focusing in on a smaller area (perhaps with background showing us the sea and horizon), like one of those pools, with some birds.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I can see Daniel's point, but to me this image is all about composition. It's that strong diagonal in combination with the horizon what makes this a great shot imho. The fact that there's not much else going on in the frame only helps to make this a clear and simple, maybe even minimalistic scene. That single airborne bird is the icing on the cake for me – it couldn't be positioned any better. I would even go so far as to call this one of the best landscape shots I've seen here in quite a while. --El Grafo (talk) 08:49, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

It certainly tries to, but for some reason that doesn't matter to me. I don't know why, maybe it's that airborne bird on the other side of the frame that draws my eyes back into the frame. --El Grafo (talk) 07:54, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

But the lighting is good, they are posed well and in costume/on-set. However the crop on the left is unfortunate. I have uploaded File:2010-09-02-trickser-by-RalfR-3-extended.jpg which extends the left cropped part a little, using contents of another photo you took in the set.

    • Fair enough. It wasn't a scene with many position options because there was so much furniture in the room and the wide angle of view means that it's hard to avoid it. I couldn't really get further back because there was another bench that I was shooting over and if I moved further back, it would be in the frame instead. Also, the room looks empty but actually it wasn't - there were lots of people walking around and if I moved further back, my tripod would have been right in the middle of the doorway to the room, so it wasn't really an option. Your crop suggestion could work although it would make the image a bit 'top heavy' IMO. Diliff (talk) 09:03, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
