SHORT DESCRIPTION
Nuvola apps important yellow.svg
Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because size is below requirements. Tomer T (talk) 00:54, 30 August 2011 (UTC) 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. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.

What do you mean by doesn't tell you much? It's a picture to describe a deforestation. What else do you want a picture to say? And i think the size is fine because it's 1.92 Mpx, just little bit less than 2Mpx.Trongphu (talk) 06:56, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

It shouldn't be less than 2 Mpx. This is the minimum. A clear border line should be crossed somewhere. Anyhow, to me it's just a bunch of wood sticks lying on the ground, it doesn't have much value imho to understanding deforestation. It could also be garbage waiting to be collected, in my eyes. Tomer T (talk) 11:05, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
To be useful at least it should be specified where was this taken. This is not explained in the description, nor is there a geocode. Also see Commons:File naming. Also agree with Tomer T that the composition is not up to FP standards, and minimum size requirement is not met. --ELEKHHT 21:39, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Saturation level is standard. RAW is available so I can change exposure if several users insist. As for the trees, this was taken from a parking lot. There are only 2 positions where you can get this view. Each with its advantages and disadvantages. At this position the trees cannot be avoided and at the other position there is this massive Arrival/Departure signboard as seen here.
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I like the buildings of Eero Saarinen and especially Dulles International Airport very much. But this picture is as ELEKHH mentioned overexposed. Sadly the trees are disturbing the view of the building. --Wladyslaw (talk) 14:46, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Reflection is the change in direction of a wavefront at an interface between two different media so that the wavefront returns into the medium from which it originated. Common examples include the reflection of light, sound and water waves. The law of reflection says that for specular reflection the angle at which the wave is incident on the surface equals the angle at which it is reflected. Mirrors exhibit specular reflection

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- It is an interesting subject and could produce a nice FP, but more attention is needed to the technical details. Three suggestions: (i) take the shot from a larger distance so that the geometric distortion is minimized and the window is shown as rectangular as possible (use a lens with a larger focal distance, e.g. 100mm). The remaining geometric distortions can be corrected later in the computer; (ii) don't use automatic exposure. The unnecessary high ISO setting of 400 produced a lower quality image because of excessive noise. I would have underexposed the shot a bit, so that the brighter parts we can see through the window are not overexposed. This will be corrected later in the computer; (iii) increase color saturation to correct for the washed-out paint of the window and make the reds more vivid. I can't promise that these suggestions will produce a FP but I believe they will make the photo more interesting. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 09:26, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I agree with the comments and the oppose above. But very interesting indeed! Not only I would like each of the photographs the same size but I'd also like if the pictures were taken from the exact same direction and so the subject would be the exact same scale too. Shortly: I would like them if they were identical except the condition of the situation. I would give bonus if there was something like a glass table under the subject or perhaps a less detailed background. That would make it look more professional and uhm... ”studio like”, I guess. --Ximonic (talk) 19:22, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION

This one is better organize, better lightning.Trongphu (talk) 01:18, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I know you retook the photo, and this one is an improvement, I'm just not sure this qualifies for the best of what we have on Commons. It still seems too much like a casual snapshot, perhaps it's better for a quality photo nomination. Missvain (talk) 03:22, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Well I did the best i can to show the Xiangqi table. It meant more than just a picture. Xiangqi is a most famous chess in Asian (i think) origin from China. I don't see any problem with the picture quality, it shows everything needed about the Xiangqi. If this one fail again by many oppose then i guess it's time for me to try my luck at quality photo nomination.Trongphu (talk) 07:04, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg OpposeBarrel distortion. And please notice that "FP picture" does not mean "better than QI picture". It is a common misinterpretation I try to fight again. The technical quality requirements are almost the same in both pages (maybe less severe in FP, because of mitigating circumstances, not allowed in QI). Maybe could it be interesting to read the two guidelines entirely. I think this one should fail in QIC page too, sorry.--Jebulon (talk) 08:40, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- Trongphu, featured pictures are "special" pictures, which not only should have excellent quality but stand out by their extraordinay beauty, perfection, rarity, value, whatever. You image is a plain depiction of a board, nothing more, and no reviewer will probably acknowledge any magic in it. I'm not sure it will pass the QIC barrier either, due to the tight crop and geometric distortion (due to the small focal distance of the lens). Another issue is the camera. Yes, it is possible to shoot a FP with a point-and-shoot camera like yours, but the odds are against it, due to the poor image quality given by the small sensor and image compression. Please take the example of my Eiffel Tower nomination below. It is a high quality very large picture composed of several individual images, taken with an expensive camera. Still it won't probably pass the FP barrier due to both quality (poor lighting) and composition (lack of magic) issues. Please don't give up, anyway. Go on practising, use this place to learn from our photographers and reviewers and ... try to get a better camera. Regards. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 09:16, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I fully agree with Alvesgaspar. Especially when he says "Don't give up" !!--Jebulon (talk) 14:08, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
I feel like giving up already. There are so many things that i don't even understand what you're trying to say. I'm not even an amateur photographers or reviewers. I don't know much about camera and stuffs about it. Things are more complicated than i thought. I bet to understand all of these things i must take a class specific about photograph. Guess i just upload pictures for fun then since it's impossible for my pictures to qualify to any of these.Trongphu (talk) 21:39, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Goetheanum: handrail at western staircase

Why? Handrails have they own category and when I check the images it doesn't seem to be so simple making a good image of this so that the viewer can capture the object instantly. --Wladyslaw (talk) 06:13, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
You got a good point, it is one of the best pictures of a handrail in the Commons, but I still think a handrail lacks significance for a FP (although the arguments). Anyway, I won't oppose (even if I could), it is just my personal opinion (people here seams to call it wow factor).

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @ --Archaeodontosaurus Webster defines contrast as the “juxtaposition of dissimilar elements (as color, tone, or emotion) in a work of art.” In this case, from the photographic perspective, your opinion contrasts with the reality of the image. This image has a very wide tonal range, that is, it has pure blacks and pure whites, with lots and lots of grays in the middle, therefore, is not a contrasted image, but the opposite, it is an image with a wide tonal scale. In order to illustrate the point, I have uploaded an image that I posterized with 10 steps of a gray scale, and that means that there are 8 shades of gray between the pure blacks and the pure whites
    This is the posterized image, compare!
    . If you look at the image, the posterization is hardly noticeable. And more interesting, look at the histogram of the image, and you will see what I mean. In fact, by looking at the posterized image and the histogram at the same time, one gets a sort of visual cognitive dissonance, due to the fact that the image, instead of becoming very contrasted as it would be expected by a posterization process, somehow manages to maintain a visually acceptable grayscale. So, your evaluation of contrast contrasts with conventional wisdom. Data is data, and the data shows wide gray scale, not contrast. On another note, this image is informative in several ways: it is a dated and geographically localized architectural detail and it is a decent study of a subject interpreted according to zone system photography. It´s ok to oppose and not like a photograph, just use the right reasons. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 22:27, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

The truth is that these Mexican dolls, as well as a lot of things Mexican, make use of vivid, saturated colors. If you look at the whites, you can see that there is no color bias in general. Also, in the exif info, you can see that the scene capture is standard. So basically scene is captured as is, colors represented as they are in real life. On the other hand, from the anthropological and historical point of view, these dolls are the legacy of early 20th century tradition, which to some academics and art historians is of interest. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 22:00, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The colors seem fine to me, but I would prefer a larger composition. The heads are cut off at the top, and the bottom is too tight IMO. Yann (talk) 08:54, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Yann, Tomer. Both of you are right with regards to the tight cropping. I chose it over a wider crop because of the visual impact, a personal choice I guess. Basically I wanted a variety of facial expressions, but for that I sacrificed general detail. I have uploaded 3 additional photographs of this type of dolls that will give more specific information on the dolls without sacrificing image size.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The subject is the climbers. I think they have enough air to breath around them. I don't understand what you mean by "uninteresting composition"... Everybody can say that about any picture...--Jebulon (talk) 11:02, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
      • It is difficult to explain subjective feelings about aesthetics. The composition seems uninteresting to me because there is no central subject to which our attention is automatically attracted. If the subjet is indeed the climbers, then a much tighter crop should have been made around them, even running the risk of sufocation :). If not, a more careful framing is required (notice, for example, the cropped roof below). The somber colors and angle (from below) don't help either. Anyway, this is only a personal (and honest) assessment and the photo will probably get very different ones from different reviewers. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 12:53, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
        • Thanks for further explanations. I've no doubt about the honesty of your assessment. The crop of roofs is to suggest the village under, and the dangerous situation of it. IMO this picture has many to show, all around the two climbers (see annotations, for example). The circumstances of this image are not usual (maybe they are unique) and I hope it will get other honest reviews (with honest supports !) ;)...--Jebulon (talk) 16:45, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This is a restoration of either a negative, slide or print. It really does not matter, for in any case it is a well done restoration. From the photographic perspective, it mainatins a decent dynamic range and more than adequate detail of the objects present. But more importantly, it is a restoration of an image that is so iconic of an event that convoluted the world at the time. As a visual document it brings down the tragedy to a simple level, to the one soldier cassually passing by what must have truly represented a tragedy to the owners of that home. The Zippo lighter and the Winston cigarretes add a strange intimacy to the image, a strange familiarity, a contrast of worldy comforts and the tragedy of war. It is foolish to reduce this image to expectations of what would be possible today with digital technologies. This image is an elocuent and social document of incredible value, both historically and as a photograph standng by itself.--Tomascastelazo (talk) 13:58, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

        • Plenty of images need explaining, for not all images contain all the necessary information for the viewer to understand. Many images need to be understood within a certain context, and it it capital cultural, or the lack of, that leads to different degrees of understanding. If we were to reduce pictures in Commons only to those that have a universal message or understanding by the general population, then we would really be in a sorry state. We would be reduced to liking pretty pictures of sunsets, flowers and cute animals, without necessarily even knowing of the relevance of such subjects in the real world outside their aesthetic characteristics, and even then, aesthetics are not necessesarily universal. So, yes, many pictures need explaining in order to realize their importance. A picture is worth a thousand words is a partially true statement, but more than anything, it is a cliché applied to a very small segment of the photograph population.--Tomascastelazo (talk) 14:37, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

      • I'm sorry Alvesgaspar, but in comparison of your below comment of the climbers in Dordogne (you called "uninteresting composition"), I'm not sure you show us here an "interesting composition". There are dozens of dozens of this picture all around by the post-card sellers, and this "composition" is especially boring IMO. I think there is no "composition" at all... Nothing new, nothing original, no wow.--Jebulon (talk) 12:56, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
        • This is not an original composition and you are right that it has already been shown in thousand of postcards. But the purpose here is to produce a high quality and high resolution depiction of the subject, using a balanced composition. A conservative view, in other words. Whether it is good enough for reaching the peaks of FP (like Benh's photo) is another thing. Anyway, I'm tryng to be coherent with my own rules (especially #8)... -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 13:32, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
          • In life, being coherent with our "own rules" is the very least we can do... This picture is nice. But should it be FP because of size ? Anyway, you are a good rhetorician, my friend...--Jebulon (talk) 16:36, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment "Sad" and "wilted" one side, "perfect" and "beautiful" other side, are concepts we can discuss for ages without to find a consensus, IMO... --Jebulon (talk) 14:33, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
      • I guess I'm responding to Llez's support comment, but also trying to question why this photograph was taken/chosen -- it would be interesting to know what the photographer was trying for. The older sunflower head is interesting from the side but has been neither isolated successfully nor pleasantly surrounded by its background. The large dark leaf leads the eye away. The symmetry of the head is lost by it. The lighting is harsh. The camera has done its job admirably, but I see little other reason to feature a pic of a very common flower. Colin (talk) 16:26, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I understand that Commons loves to restore images, but, as someone who works in the GLAM industry, and works closely with staff and folks who are involved in image donations, it's a general belief that to have people restore the images on Commons takes away from the historical and archival importance of the images. Of course, you can do what you want with the images, since they are on Commons. I disagree that an image needs to be restored in order to be considered a featured image. I also come from traditional photography and honestly, at times, the history of the photograph - the marks, the wears, the tears - are sometimes as important as the image itself. Lost cause I'm sure sharing my thoughts, but, worth a shot. Missvain (talk) 14:40, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree with you in the general sense, so much that I voted support of the image. There are, however, a lint and dust specks that are not part of the image itself. That is the restoration I refer to. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 16:58, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Archangel Michael by Urs Graf
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Urs Graf (1516), scanned, uploaded and nominated by Gestumblindi. Very original pen drawing by Swiss artist Urs Graf (ca. 1485-1528). The Archangel Michael as the weigher of souls; a common theme, but depicted in an uncommon way - not the usual angelic face; instead striking features, sneering as he prepares to strike down the little demons trying to weigh down their scale. Praised as "aussergewöhnlich eingehend und fein" (extraordinarily detailed and fine) in the catalogue of 1926.

    Soll ich etwa den gewollt unscharfen Vordergrund nachschärfen? Das Boot ist scharf, der Gletscher ist scharf. Was soll denn da noch nachgeschärft werden? Hochpassschärfen kenne ich ansonsten gut. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 19:44, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
    Der Fokus liegt ja in der Bildmitte - also auf Höhe der Pfeiler. Auch das Boot könnte im hinteren Bereich noch etwas Schärfe vertragen. Habe soeben mal mit Radius 2.0 und Ebenenfüllmethode Weiches Licht inklusive Maskierung auf die Bereiche getestet - schau es dir selbst an. Die Krux ist hier eindeutig der Nebel. Knackscharf ist dadurch hier leider nichts, daher auch die Gegenstimmen. Regards, PETER WEIS TALK 22:37, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
    Die Unschärfe unterstreicht das Nebulöse, das Unwirkliche, das Mystische. Das Hochpasschärfen habe ich ausprobiert, aber dadurch kommt wieder mehr Rauschen in die Wolken. Ansonsten habe ich genung Arbeit in das Bild gesteckt. Das reicht mir. Mit den Contras kann ich leben. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 23:06, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I wanted to nominate this for a long time because it's a very nice view, but I wasn't happy with the original version from 2010, so I gave it another try a few weeks ago. Even though the trains are not that quick here (maybe 130 km/h), motion blur is a bit of a problem.

Subject distance less than 50cm; the lens used has a maximal aperture of f/2.8, but the depth of field would have been too shallow at this setting.

    • "skewed CCW"? What? Tomer T (talk) 15:50, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
      • Sorry, I should have been more explicit. Either it is rotated counter-clockwise, or it is slightly skewed in the same direction. I noticed that the horizontals are not exactly horizontal, yet the verticals appear to be vertical. So maybe it is not tilted, but rather skewed. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 21:03, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Simple, clean, great atmosphere and colors, majesty, rare. Featurable IMO. -- Jebulon (talk) 09:49, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Yes, clean and simple, great qualities in a photograph, however, the image lacks two key attributes: volume and texture. Those two elements would have given it added value in terms of aesthetics and architecture. Picture was taken at the wrong time of day. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 15:19, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
    • I disagree. I find here enough volume and texture.--Jebulon (talk) 15:47, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
      • As far as texture, of course there is, just not enough given the possibilities. Volume? Come on Jebulon, lighting is flat! If the picture had been taken from the right corner, the story would have been different, for give the direction of light one wall would have been in the shadow, the other in the lightm hence giving it incredible volume! and the texture would have been enhanced tremendously! And I correct myself, wrong angle, right time of day. The way it is now the photograph was taken almost from the same direction of the sunlight, texture and volume have to do with direction of light, and in this case the choice, given the conditions and possibilities, the best angle was not chosen. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 18:03, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
        • ...in your opinion. This was the best angle to avoid disturbing shadows on the ground, and I think it is good in this case. In my opinion...--Jebulon (talk) 00:13, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
          • Well, my opinion is based on well established photographic practice and technique. What I say is hardly revolutionary, on the contrary, it is very conservative photographic practice. If you take the time to read a little about direction of light and how directional lighting affects volume and texture and how it brings three dimensionality to a two dimensional surface, you would not have any other option but to agree not just with me, but with just about any well informed photographer. This particular photograph is a clasic example of what should not be done, any way you want to put it. Look at the round columns on the left wall, it it were not for the contour and perspective, you could hardly tell that they round. If the photographed had placed himself on the other corner, he would not have disturbing shadows, but shadows that would have given the image volume and texture, making the image much more pleasant. You can read a little bit about light direction, shadows and texture here [[4]], here [[5]], here [[6]] and here [[7]]. Finally, this is a good example of backlight and texture [[8]] This is really so elementary that this argument is foolish. Almost like arguing the wetness of water. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 05:36, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
          • This is another example of direction of light and photographic texture. Given a good exposure and subject and lighting within the dynamic range, shadows and highlights will come out nicely. [[9]] --Tomascastelazo (talk) 06:29, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

What I did instead was to make the unfortunate thing more discrete. Keeping it there is just a sign of rebellion against the tirany of (boring) symmetry!
