Victoria and Merrie England

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Arthur Sullivan (1842-1900) and Wilfred Bendall (1850-1920) - prepared, uploaded, and nominated by Adam Cuerden -- Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:44, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info A few words about this: This is one of Sullivan's rarest works - only a handful of copies are known to survive, and I learned later that it was actually a bit of a bureaucratic mistake on the library's part that let me get this to a photocopier and take away a full reproduction - they don't normally allow users to self-photocopy such rare works, but they accidentally gave it to me in the wrong reading room, and so, when I asked, it was treated as a normal book, and I was granted permission to photocopy it in full. In short, very rare book, and we're lucky to have it.
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:44, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This might be better placed at Wikisource? I know Commons is for media, and it is a PDF, but it seems somewhat analogous to someone taking a screenshot of a Wikipedia article and uploading it here and calling it 'media'. I appreciate the effort you made in obtaining this rare work, and it is interesting indeed, but having a PDF/photocopy doesn't seem to add much, if anything, and I think a better location would be Wikisource. naerii 14:01, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Before you say it's not easy to take this shot, you haven't spend enough time under seagulls. Aerial bombardment is right. I narrowly escaped a whole squadron unloading 30 feet away from me one day. There is even a whole flickr group dedicated to the phenomena of defecating birds. --Dori - Talk 01:25, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for pointing out that this is not a unique subject, but IMO, this is better quality than at least the majority of the photos in that flickr group. Very illustrative angle here, and perfect lighting to emphasize the rear quarters where the action is happening. This shot, in its class, is downright amazing. --Specious (talk) 04:58, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Yes of course the quality of the picture (especially the seagull) is not great. But, as says specious, none of the pictures on this flickr group is better than mine IMO (I opened each one full size ;-)). And I think I was only lucky to take this shot: over about 400 pictures, only one of a defecating seagull and with a good quality!!!! -- sanchezn (talk) 18:32, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
  • I completely agree. Your picture is far way better than any picture on that flickr group. You had luck to get moment like this, but hey, that just makes this picture more valuable.

    • Barack Obama, the man behind Joe Biden who has his hand on Biden's shoulder. --Dschwen (talk) 13:59, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
    • Maybe I should explain myself better. I know it is Barack Obama the candidate! But the central and most prominent place in the picture is of Joe Biden. If I knew nothing about them I would readily point to him as the candidate for the presidency. That is why I find this picture a bit misleading. I can imagine many americans, not very found of Obama, making this kind of comment -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 14:37, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
      • The picture is about Joe Biden, Obama is providing only context here. I'm sure most ameriacans will appreciate the fact that there are already tons of pictures of Obama, and I'm sure this one picture with happens to focus on Biden will not distract from Obama. Geez, have I missed a new law that states that every picture with Obama has to have Obama as the main subject?! --Dschwen (talk) 15:33, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Then there are certainly more pictures of him that are very similar. And then the picture isnt very special anymore.

But this one should use a bit shorter time, 2,5 seconds ruined the lighting in some parts. Well making more images with different time (1s, 1,3s, 1,5s, 2s, 2,5s and 3s for example) and then select some good one is advisable. --Aktron (talk) 11:22, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

              Фотография нерезкая: шевелёнка, так как ИС не спас, и слишком открытая диафрагма. Небо недоэкспонировано, здание переэкспонировано. Номинировать в избранные изображения фотографию, снятую китом на открытой диафрагме и с выдержкой 2.5 секунды я считаю глупостью. Надеюсь, что через годик общения с зеркалкой вы разделите моё мнение. Попробуйте в следующий раз сделать несколько снимков с разными выдержками, разными диафрагмами, лучше наверное даже на максимальном ISO а потом пройтись шумодавом, и сделать из полученного HDR. Вот сравните: моё фото снятое на заре общения с зеркалкой, нормально снятое фото (by Voytek S), и HDR by Юрий Дмитриенко. Ваше фото по уровню ближе всего к моей версии. За то и критикую. --Rave (talk) 18:18, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

    • Thank you for your comment. I included the office tower in the background, in an attempt to oppose the "new cathedral" to the "old cathedral". As a matter of fact, that office tower mimics a bit the cathedral's architecture; it was actually named "Place de la Cathédrale" originally, and today is called "Tour KPMG". Tango7174.

Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way.

That makes no sense ! Don't let romantism overwhelm your reason. If it were animals, no matter an elephant or a slug ? This is a pleasant picture not only for its aesthetic qualities (otherwise abstract figures would do the same) but also for its cultural context. Not all kinds of trees, not all sorts of mountains, not all meadows and not any combination of them might arise such positive feelings. The very reality of this picture is only able to bring the breathing of it, even if you are unaware of it. And it works, we are transported to this place of Tyrol. That is why I think it is important to give the clues : naming the places and the species as a minimum of respect to the watchers. Because also black and white photography is somehow an easy way for manipulation, it's better to make it completely honest. You know, these trees are larches (Larix decidua) and it would be a completely different impression if it were spruce or beech or pines. Don't you prefer to know what makes you feel so, rose scent or jasmine, pepper or vanilla ? One could tell just from this only picture so many things about how nature and men have made this lanscape and why so many people find it so fine. I just wanted two or three words more from the uploader. I will do it myself and change my vote but I'm a bit disappointed to see how basic exigences are so easily blown out when under the charm. --B.navez (talk) 19:20, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

There is a white line next to the red building. Also, don't you think the image might be a bit to big? on my average speed computer it took about 15 minutes to load. --SuperJew (talk) 18:52, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
The white line is not a stitching error, it is one of the ropes of the window cleaning platform. It is present in the original pictures. And when FPC is now becoming a place where contributors are encouraged to upload lower quality images, then something is going seriously wrong. --Dschwen (talk) 19:54, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

No the sand is ok. But especially the wheels look as if the vehicle didn't move at all. It also adds dynamic if the background is not sharp but has a motion blur. You can get all that with panning shots. It takes some time to learn it, but once you have a feeling for it, it is really fun. --AngMoKio (talk) 07:27, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

    The dunes around Swakopmund are typically shrouded in mist often exacerbated by sand storms. And yes I've been there. Lycaon (talk) 07:19, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
    Are you refering to the saturation of the sands or the saturation of the entire image? --Base64 (talk) 13:53, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment just because it is not possible and if it was it would be FP doesn't make it FP. My picture was turned down because of leaves covering the crocodiles feet and the background. Maybe they're were supposing I would just get down, move the crocodile to a better background (and hope not to get bitten on the way)? --SuperJew (talk) 13:59, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg InfoThis side was build by the romans to impress their enemies and is therefore the more interesting (or main) side. For the other side look here Trier Porta Nigra BW 3.JPG--Berthold Werner (talk) 06:32, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
      The other side could also refer to something like this: Trier Porta Nigra BW 2.JPG Certainly a more dramatic view of the building. Haros (talk) 16:20, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
