    • @Martin Falbisoner: thanks for your comment. In this case, one big problem was tourists crossing the new built bridge, so all shots were a bit shaky. (Note: I have downsampled it a bit now, as a consequence of perspective correction.) Level of detail is comparable to the existing FP of Mont Saint-Michel BeBo86 (talk) 13:09, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
      • @BeBo86:: Hmm, well, what the heck... I really like your image and I do understand how difficult night shots are. The photo does look better now, and though downsampling as such is never a good solution... I'll change my vote to weak Symbol support vote.svg Support --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 10:08, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Sharpness is OK for me (night shot). Composition and motive is very nice. I will support the image if you correct the verticals (take a look at the very left building) --Tuxyso (talk) 07:52, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    • @Tuxyso: THANKS a lot and you are right!!! ✓ Done BeBo86 (talk) 13:09, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Much bigger than the other FP of it I'm aware of ;) So could have been a nice replacement (I would have seen no reason to keep both which are similar). But the sharpness issue largely nullifies this improvement. Composition wise I don't see why the mount is not centered (the empty space on the right adds no value). Not a fan of the scaffoldings either. - Benh (talk) 09:37, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    • @Benh: Compared to the other file, level of detail is close to equal - yes. "Improvements" could be: less overexposed areas (thanks to exposure bracketing), more pleasing colors, more interesting sky (which gives the picture depth), and corrected perspective (thanks to Tuxyso) which the other file has not. I like the composition as it is, because a) I like the blurred clouds b) the composition doesn't look too centered and c) the result is a nice 16:9 picture :-) The scaffoldings are a pity but they simply are there BeBo86 (talk) 13:09, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I wonder why the image wasn't taken a bit earlier. Were the lights only switched on by then? Personally, I would like more light, both in the sky and on the darker parts of the rock. --DXR (talk) 13:42, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This was also because of tourists crossing the bridge (and the picture). This was the first moment with no tourist crossing my view (but you can see bicycles with lights coming from the left ;-) The alternative was to shoot from the handrail on the other side of the bridge, but on this side there was kind of a dam which didn't look good in the foreground (currently there's a building site!). BeBo86 (talk) 15:02, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Okay, even though I would probably have tried to combine shots to remove the tourists but fair enough. Looking at suncalc, the sun would have been quite a bit to the left so that would have worked, probably. BTW: Imho it's not good to remove the EXIF with a later upload. --DXR (talk) 15:28, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • just to mention I faced the exact same problem on my own shot (to a lesser extent, it was taken at winter time). Mont Saint-Michel is one of the busiest site in France. About using several shots to remove people, I'm a bit skeptical ; light decreases fast. Not sure it would be so easy to used empty parts from other pictures (possible to adjust exposure but depending on the number of people to erase, could drive one crazy ;) ). - Benh (talk) 22:14, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, for sure it isn't easy, but we are talking FP here, and if it takes a few hours in PS, it does. But granted, that's a bit academic now. --DXR (talk) 23:24, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I like the photo as it is (also the decentered composition with the links from the street going through the picture). Level of detail / sharpness is sufficient for me. Regarding the shooting time: I guess the sun sets at the very left part of the photo. If BeBo86 had shot earlier there had been problems with backlight. --Tuxyso (talk) 15:05, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
the sun is much farther on the left, so "backlight" is not really an issue here. The people, on the other hand... - Benh (talk) 22:18, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Weak Symbol support vote.svg Support. I like the dark blueish background and the lightning is good - a few places some minor problems with exposure control, but is is quite difficult to avoid in such kinds of photos. I especially like the mood of the lower buildings to the right. My biggest problem is the per-pixel quality for a 3.6 Mpixel image. I would have opposed if it was daylight. At these conditions it is harder, and for me it just passes the FP bar quality-wise.--Slaunger (talk) 20:29, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, but per above. Yes, it is an iconic location and I understand the choice of time, but in my opinion the quality just is not good enough to be the best of commons --DXR (talk) 23:24, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

@Wilfredo: I respect your opinion, but it is justifiable. That's just a view to the sky of a monument, the composition would be composed only the monument itself and the clouds (if any), which are not significant in the sky. User:ArionEstarArionEstar (talk) 18:11, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

  • I like the composition and motive very much, that was the reason for nomination - photographically special enough for me :) But you are wrong with the background - there is nothing overexposed. It was a very foggy (and windy) day thus the landscapes is hidden behind fog. For me the the naturally washed out background is a good contrast to the remarkable mining waste tip. I have also a b/w development of this photo where this contrast is even more accentuated and looks great imho. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:48, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

    @A.Savin: As far as I understand the article, there is a Emscherkunst exhibition every year until 2020. Some of the works will be dismantled, some will stay. This seems to be a permanent installment, see emscherkunst.de: „Der "Zauberlehrling" gehört zu den permanenten Arbeiten der EMSCHERKUNST.2013 und ist auch nach Ausstellungsende jederzeit in Oberhausen nahe Haus Ripshorst frei zugänglich.“ Therefore there should be no problem regarding the freedom of panorama. ireas (talk) 14:03, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
    (edit conflict) A.Savin, intersting question. I am not a lawyer - but for such a long period one can say that the installation is permantely in the public space and thus qualifies for FoP. There was a judgement in Germany regarding the covering of the Reichstag (Christo covered the German Reichstag for a few weeks) which said that photographs of Christo's installation does not fall under FoP.

Palma Cathedral, Majorca
It's definitly not. The building was indeed illuminated by the sun. Maybe this impression accures because of jagged front. --Wladyslaw (talk) 06:12, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose for now. Very harsh light. Can you make it softer? --Uoaei1 (talk) 06:37, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
It's rather paradox. You think the light is harsh, Alchemist means the church is partially in shadow. I think the light shows the cathedral in a good and interessting way. --Wladyslaw (talk) 06:49, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Very impressive view, composition, and size (I did not find any stitching error). Some "rework" in the sky is visible -artefacts- (I know how it is difficult to manage this). The contrasts of some parts of the building and vegetation are not the same everywhere (some parts look like "dusty" and pale). But it can be corrected and we already have promoted worst pictures than this one, IMO...--Jebulon (talk) 09:54, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
The few "dusty" areals are no fault of the stitching or a sign of bad processing. The sun was shing very strong this day and there are some interference. This phenomenon you can find also in my single shots of this church (e.g. File:Mallorca - Kathedrale von Palma6.jpg). I understand if you oppose because of this but I don't think it's thatmost disturbing. A similar physical effect you can see on this image File:Toronto - ON - Schaft des CN Tower.jpg which is for sure actually interessting. So: nothing correctable here because it's just nature. --Wladyslaw (talk) 18:54, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

      • Thanks for the link; as far as I understand it would require a series of tripod shots, which is probably not the case here, and unlike the scene with the people who move around quickly we have here a scene with buses which - I guess - stop for a relatively long time, so that I doubt that an otherwise homogenous series would have been possible. There is of course always a possibility to apply PS cloning, but in this case with relatively big parts of street and facade obscured by the buses, it will probably not really work, or just with visible retouching traces, which I certainly would not prefer. --A.Savin 10:03, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
      • Thanks for the link too. I had heard about that, but I don't usually take my tripod with daylight, I prefer (by now) single shots, though I'd like to learn how to stitch pictures like you do. However this is one of the busiest places in Madrid and one of the main bus stops (even at 3am) and you have to wait for the sequence of traffic lights to have no cars in the foreground, waiting for a chance to have no buses and no cars would take forever (I understood the technique, but imo some parts would always be obscured, it is very busy), to have some good takes it took me about 20 minutes and I was starting to be sun-burnt haha; in this one less than half a second later a few motorbikes would appear in the picture coming from the left. I also think buses are somehow part of the place, so it's not so disturbing. As Alexandr says, cloning would also be difficult, and I don't master photoshop. --Kadellar (talk) 10:54, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
        • That's fair, I wasn't arguing that you must remove the cars and buses anyway. :-) I was just saying it is technically possible. It's fine when they are in the background and not obscuring much of the subject. Diliff (talk) 18:38, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Dettifoss is a northern Icelandic waterfall situated on the Jökulsá á Fjöllum river
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Dettifoss, a northern Icelandic waterfall situated on the Jökulsá á Fjöllum river, has a width of 100m and a drop of 45m, making it Europe's most powerful waterfall with an average flow of 193m3/s. Its enormous dimensions can be measured using the group of people on the left bank as scale. What I like about the picture is the barren and yet powerful, almost primeval mood it conveys.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. I agree that the waterfall is not helped by the long exposure in this case. I find that around 1/10 to 1/2 seconds is the ideal exposure length for waterfalls to achieve a sense of movement and flow, but without completely removing the texture of the water. It's also very monochromatic, although I guess this is just the reality of the landscape. Diliff (talk) 11:07, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Interesting, I really thought this picture would meet with a more positive response. Anyway, thanks for your reviews. And yes, Diliff, the reality of the landscape up there is in fact rather "monochromatic", with overcast skies, rocks of all sorts and sizes, and muddy water. Pictogram voting delete.svg I withdraw my nomination --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 12:04, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
    • It's not a bad photo at all, but I don't think the exposure length and the position of the camera is ideal, I also don't get a sense of the scale of the waterfall, except when I notice how small the people are on the other side. It's better when the picture can speak to you without having to look at the little details like that to understand it. I don't like to tell people where they should have taken a photo from because I don't know what options were available, but it would have been nice to see it either from closer to the edge or from further away and along the cliff edge so that you can see the waterfall's drop better. Or from higher above it, but I guess that is not possible! :-) Diliff (talk) 13:11, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Of course. One question though, how do you decide between 35mm and 50mm? Is it a matter of DoF or time? Or has the 50mm replaced the 35mm for better quality/higher res? --DXR (talk) 09:08, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Good question. The Sigma 50mm has replaced the 35mm for most of my stitching now, but I sometimes go for 35mm when I need wider depth of field. 50mm provides only just enough DOF in many of my panoramas (even when using the hyperfocal distance to maximise DOF) and sometimes I need to go all the way to f/16 (the smallest aperture on both the 35mm and 50mm lenses). At this aperture, diffraction is a problem and starts to eat away at the detail advantage of 50mm. Also, 50mm requires more individual photos to capture the same scene. So basically, I use 35mm when I am not as concerned with quality/high res, and when there are objects very close to the camera that would be out of focus with my 50mm lens. But for most stitched architectural photography, 50mm is the 'sweet spot' for me and if the scene is worth a bracketed and stitched image, it's probably also worth spending an extra minute or two to capture it with the 50mm lens. ;-) Diliff (talk) 09:30, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Interesting explanation about 35-50mm, thanks. One question from me as well, do you remove people from the scene before stitching or the other way round? Removing first, right? You'll have to organize a workshop! ;) --Kadellar (talk) 11:08, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Actually, I very rarely need to use Photoshop to remove people, I just wait very patiently until people are not in the frame. ;-) It's a bit easier because of the stitching though. For example, If they are on the right side, I can take all the photos of the left side (and all the photos of the ceiling). I just have to keep a mental picture of which sections still need to be taken, and then I wait until people decide to move away. Sometimes it doesn't take long, sometimes I wait for 15+ minutes and one person leaves just as another person arrives. It can be very frustrating. Sometimes I just give up and leave them in the photo, but it's rare. Maybe the looks I give these people while I wait is enough to make them disappear! ;-) Diliff (talk) 11:45, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support French gothic cathedrals need you too ! (please see note. Maybe -I repeat, maybe- I've found something a little wrong)--Jebulon (talk) 14:18, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
    • The slight tilt in the ceiling ribs is probably because I wasn't perfectly centred (or the ceiling isn't perfectly in line with the floor tiles). The problem with these old cathedrals is that you would assume that the middle of the central floor tiles is the middle, but not always... Even if you are away from the true centre by just a one centimetre, that can be enough to be very obvious in a photo like this. Lines deviate more when the angle of view is very wide. Diliff (talk) 16:09, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
      • Oh, and I would love to spend some time in the French cathedrals. My wife is from Picardie but we usually just spend all our time in France with her family... I was surprised to learn that there are six cathedrals in Picardie! Beauvais, Amiens, Noyon, Senlis, Soissons and Laon. There are a lot more cathedrals in France than in England... It would take a long time to visit them all. Diliff (talk) 16:58, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
        • My favorite is Laon. Not very far, Reims is very nice too, and very historical (kings coronations took place there). Paris... Chartres... What a photographical tour for you !--Jebulon (talk) 21:56, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
          • I was lucky enough to be approved for a grant through Wikimedia UK to cover the costs (fuel mostly) of visiting these English cathedrals...

    I decided to nominate the picture when I saw that it was used to illustrate a talk by Peter Wynne Rees (the chief planner of the City of London from 1985). London is not Paris or Florence, it is a much more chaotic urban landscape (not as harmonious and beautiful, but perhaps more exciting). The picture captures the urban landscape with typical elements for London. The River Thames, one of many railway bridges, all generations of the skyscrapers in city, the typical mix of old and new. I do not care if the bridge is not appealing, the bridge is IMO an interesting and important part of the urban landscape.--ArildV (talk) 17:55, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- mathias K 14:53, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The focus is very soft on the remaining antenna and somewhat soft on some of the legs. First I suspected it was due to DOF issues, but it is taken at f/13, so I guess it cannot be that? Could it be motion blur? The exposure time was 1/60 s, a little slow. Whatever, the reason is, it is a pity as it distracts from the body, which has a very nice detail level. Light and composition is also good. Subject is interesting. I did not know about the longhorn beetle and that it is actually considered a serious pest for poplar trees. Not sure I can support due to the soft focus issues, but it was interesting and I learned something. --Slaunger (talk) 17:22, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Slaunger! First of all, thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to read because of your last point: "it was interisting and I learned something". Thats really cool!! Cause one of the most importent things in taking pictures for me is that the pic makes us want to know more about something. And if that is the case, then it is much "better" than any fp-sign could be! :-)
To the technical thing: The soft focus issue you mentioned is in fact a dof effect. When I was taking the pic my first intention was to get the max possible magnification with the whole bettle on the sensor. To get this I need to go as close as possible to the bettle. In this actual pic the distance between sensor and bettle was ~45-50cm. With my 90mm macro and f/13 this means a total dof of ~1,0 - 1,3cm. Now you need to keep in mind that the beetle is pretty "big" with ~4cm body length, and when it was sitting like this it is also wider then 1,5cm from "edge to edge". So you see, even with f/13 it isn´t possible to get the whole body in focus with this resulting magnification/resolution. I hope I could explain myself, my intention and the picture passably... ;-) Regards mathias K 18:28, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
I understand completely, and I am glad you appreciate the review, although I did not support:) It surprised me that the f/13 is the limiting factor, but you are right, I just checked with an online DOF calculator. It appears that if you had moved away to 75 cm you would have gotten a 2.5 times larger DOF, at a cost of approximately half the pixelage on the main body. Maybe it would have been a better compromise, but it is so easy to be smart in hindsight. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:24, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not enough DOF. Choose a more suitable lens or step back as Slaunger suggested. :) Jee 03:03, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I got the dof point and youre right. It is very narrow. But as I wrote above, there isn't much room for more dof at this magnification. When, for instance, shooting portraits with f/2.8 the focus should match the eyes amd the rest should be oof. Its nothing else here, I had to choose between max magnification, with a limited dof which fits the eyes and the body, or less magnification with more dof... It looks like I choose the wrong one. ;-) Greetings mathias K 07:24, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

  • That's a definite improvement and better than mine, which I've removed but is viewable here. Does the original allow for including more on the left, also? The dominant feature of this image is the plant that arcs across the frame, of course. It originates in the burst of leaves at the lower left, but that part of the plant is truncated by the crop. The arc leads the eye right to that, and I have to wonder whether it would be better to include the whole plant, though without knowing what else that would bring into the composition. That might also help with the issue of the line of the rock wall coming right out of the corner, which is not optimal. --Kbh3rdtalk 18:32, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

    • CAs fixed. Cannot change your perception regarding the composition - I like it as it is, especially with the inclined branch. But I cannot follow your focus argument. What is wrong to focus on the eyes? Head, eyes and a lot of areas of the coat are sharp.
      Und noch mal auf Deutsch um Missverständnissen vorzubeugen: Die CAs habe ich korrigert. Deinen Kommentar bzgl. der zu gewöhnlichen Komposition kann ich nicht verstehen, mir gefällt sie. Deinen Kommentar bzgl. des Fokus ist nicht nachvollziehbar. Was bitte ist falsch daran auf die Augen zu fokussieren (wie bei Porträts üblich, sollte dir bekannt sein)? Große Teile des Kopfes, der Augen und des Fells sind scharf - ich kann beim besten Willen kein Problem sehen. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:19, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Es ist nach wie vor ein unschöner Farbsaum zu erkennen und auch eine unschöne Ausfransung der Kontur. Der Ast korrespondiert fotografisch mit nichts anderem im Bild, im Gegenteil ragt er nur als störendes Element in Richtung des Betrachters empor. Dass ausgerechnet der hintere Teil des Holzes scharf, aber der vordere sehr prominente ins Bild gerückte unscharf ist finde ich eben unglücklich. Zur Katze selbst: sie sieht schlauchförmig aus und wenn man es nicht durch die eigene Erfahrung besser wüsste konnte man das Tier auch für eine felltragende Schlange halten. Ich kann daran kein geglücktes Detail erkennen, was mich von den Socken haut. Fazit: generell technisch handwerklich okay, für ein FP mir klar zu wenig. --Wladyslaw (talk) 20:03, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Harsh light -- Christian Ferrer Talk 04:42, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • very weak Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose – I would so much like to support this because it’s an unusual image of a cat, and it really strikes me (though I am rather a lover of dogs than cats). The emerging rod is certainly a matter of taste. I like it for supporting the cat from this side; in case it rises to its feet it can put its front right paw onto it. On the other hand, there’s the harsh light pointed out by Christian Ferrer. Fur is partially blown, and so are the whiskers, some of which even show JPEG artifacts. Furthermore, there’s a slight motion blur all over the image. Maybe camera shake? Look at the fur around its eyes, it’s blurred in one direction. That keeps this image slightly below FP threshold for me – but, as I pointed out, it’s a pity. If only the blown parts can be fixed from a raw file, I might change my vote. --Kreuzschnabel (talk) 15:27, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Over exposed windows are a fact of life, unless one believes portrait/candid photography shoult start using HDR! However the glare from the windows is distracting so they become the focus of the eye rather than than man. -- Colin (talk) 12:25, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per others. Also, the man's elbow and dish should not be resting on the bottom of the frame. That violates general composition guidelines, and although breaking "rules" sometimes works, that does not work here.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. Nice work. The text of the photo template on your image page looks strangely familiar! ;-) And I see you've used a five image bracket with +2EV spaces. Has Nikon released a new firmware to allow you to do this or do you have to select the shutter speeds manually? Diliff (talk) 15:58, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Ha! Text is only sa, not sa-by, so I hope that's alright ;-). Unfortunately, Nikon has remained lazy, I'm shooting nine photos and throw away four (still better than doing it manually, though). I guess that's one way to boost sales for new shutters... --DXR (talk) 17:58, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Wow, that is an extreme way of getting 2EV spaces but I agree, better than doing it manually. It would really add a lot of time to the shooting and processing too. Diliff (talk) 21:00, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! Well, I try to stick to the "Diliff method" (or at least what I believe it to be): So I take the bracketing in camera, stitch five full panoramas from the exposures and then combine them in Photomatix, export them as 32-bit tiffs (without any further edit in Photomatix) and then finish editing in Lightroom. --DXR (talk) 17:58, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
That's essentially my method yes, although PTGui can output 32 bit TIFFs so I don't need to take the intermediate step of using Photomatix (unless I want to use its ghost removal function). Diliff (talk) 20:58, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you two very much for the info. HDR is something that's left for me to do and I'd love to get this kind of results (this picture and the next nomination by Diliff), even if it's not stitched panoramas. I don't like unreal HDR :P --Kadellar (talk) 22:23, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

The dutch phrase "boer met kiespijn" ("to smile like a farmer with a tooth-ache") comes to mind looking at the second and third place-teams. Kleuske (talk) 11:50, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes, the white balance was a headache. There was the standard light, but near the floor there was another light (an advertisement) and also the playing field makes a warmer reflection. This was the best WB I could get for the series after trying different temperatures. --Kadellar (talk) 18:18, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

    • Kreuzschnabel, Christian Ferrer: Well, I nominate it because I was expecting this being featured as documentary image, we don't have many teams celebrating. About the crop: I cut the feet so the players are more important in the picture. With the feet, there's also too much uninteresting floor at the bottom. Thanks for the reviews anyway. What do you think of this other image: File:Nazionale di hockey su pista dell'Italia - 02.jpg?--Kadellar (talk) 16:20, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
    The composition is indeed better or at least more striking on the other but the quality is much better on the current nomination. The quality is even very good IMO, but if we forget the subject, the value, and the quality; and that we look only at the visual object which is the image so sorry the cut men are disturbing, a bit too much for to be compensated by the value of this documentary image. However I understand your point of view. I think will not support the other image too because of the DoF a bit small IMO, really sorry... -- Christian Ferrer Talk 17:09, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

There isn't much you can do without going back to the original RAW files (if taken as RAW). It's likely the result too much post-processing of a JPG file (which has less ability to be manipulated than RAW) and then made worse with JPG compression. Diliff (talk) 14:14, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Dome of the old Chapter House, better known as the Holy Chalice Chapel, because there supposedly the Holy Chalice is exhibited. The chapel is part of the Metropolitan Cathedral–Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady of Valencia, a Roman Catholic parish church in Valencia, Spain. The cathedral was consecrated in 1238 and dedicated by order of James I the Conqueror to Saint Mary. The chalice kept in this chapel has been defended as the true Holy Grail; indeed, most Christian historians declare that all their evidence points to this Valencian chalice as the most likely candidate for being the authentic cup used at the Last Supper and was actually the official papal chalice for many popes, and has been used by many others, most recently by Pope Benedict XVI, on July 9, 2006. The chalice dates from the 1st century, and was given to the cathedral by king Alfonso V of Aragon in 1436.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info -- It was one of some ten spontaneous shots. With this one I (we) got lucky. Only the framing was later carefully adjusted. That is why I don't agree with Yann above :) -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 18:55, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment spontaneous or not, I like the composition. There's a strong diagonal from the diagonal roof (?) in the top right corner along her left eye → nose → brush → wrist → foot. It's symmetrical (distances from the points where it crosses the image border at the top and bottom to the nearest corner are more or less the same) and it has the brush right in the center. Forcing that into a rule of thirds composition (head at the upper right intersection, I guess?) may totally kill it. --El Grafo (talk) 08:43, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

    • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question@Jebulon:. Regarding the feeling that the photo is posed and not very spontaneous, I came to think of that he have many FPs of very staged/posed portraits, especially of notable historic people (and I think you like a lot of those). Why is it OK that these historic photos are staged, but one of a comtemporary, non-notable person it is not? For me, it is a little like Culture sélective des plantes (spontaneous) vs Génie génétique (posed). You can sometimes get lucky with the first, and it sounds for sure good, in the latter case it is under control, and more deterministic (but it does not sound good), and if you know the end goal you can get a good result with skill and work. -- Slaunger (talk) 18:44, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info@Slaunger:Sorry in advance for bad english. There is "pose" and "pose". This is an "assumed " pose, in an official context, idem for the two other examples you quoted, and all the three has a special value (age, historical, technical, restoration, rare, value of models etc...), from a time when there was no other possibility for taking pictures of persons. I am not the photographer, and I did not nominate these pictures because of "pose". I did not try to attract the support votes with "pose", and even not, in some way, with artificial built composition. IMO, one of the main merits of the Ines picture is in the "pose", and I feel a bit embarrassed with this. That's why, IMO, there is no comparison possible between the picture of Ines and the one of Berlioz.--Jebulon (talk) 19:43, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
      • @Jebulon: Thanks for the explanation, and just to clarify, my question was not meant as a criticism of neither your vote here and the objectives for nominating pictures of historic notable persons, I just started wondering what you perceived what the difference in poses there and here. The only thing I still do not entirely understand, is your comment about "...one of the main merits of the Ines picture is in the "pose", and I feel a bit embarrassed with this." Do you mean that in this case the pose is 'too much', 'not fitting' for the type of subject, or something completely different? Just trying to understand... --Slaunger (talk) 19:54, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
    • @Slaunger:For sure you noticed that it happens that I may be sometimes a little..."upset", but no need to be so careful with me, my friend. I did not perceived any criticism in your questions, and if any, it is your full right to criticize ! The answer of your question is, I think, in my first comment: it looks too much artificial, and I'd like something more spontaneous, something catched "à la volée". This is not the case.--Jebulon (talk) 20:07, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose These shots are always very hard to control from an exposure point of view, if you 'only' make a single shot as here. Although nice, I think too many details are lost in the most brightly illuminated areas. Diliff has recently made an impressive display of what is possible for these church/cathedral interiors by combining different exposures. I consider his work as being at a completely outstanding level, and not the new baseline for FP. Still, I think the gap is a little too large quality-wise. Sorry. --Slaunger (talk) 17:53, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment. I think the largest problem for me is the composition. It feels unbalanced due to the seating being cropped. Well, I'd be the first to say that you shouldn't have to do what I do to get a FP, but my methodology provides a lot more flexibility which I often appreciate when I get home and process the images. I can get a wider angle view than is normally possible with a lens, and later on, if I feel the view is too wide, I can crop it a bit without feeling like I'm losing precious detail by doing so. And of course with multiple exposures, there is no worry that detail has been lost due to overexposure. But actually in this image, I think it could have been underexposed by 1/2 a stop or maybe more without losing any detail in the shadows. Diliff (talk) 18:18, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I have the same feeling as Slaunger. IMO the focal point is not at the good place, the pic is a bit too soft, not sharp at edges and yes, I've had reduced the exposure a bit too. The cropped seating is not a problem for me here. I've noticed that there are often no chairs in anglican cathedrals, but they are almost always chairs in the catholic. So, seating is often problematic in composition. But, like Slaunger, I think we should not consider Diliff's work as the "church interiors bar" :) !--Jebulon (talk) 16:05, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
    • Yes, that's something I've also noticed too. Anglican cathedrals have removable chairs, almost never permanent seating. But if I'm honest, my belief is that it's because Anglican cathedrals are more of a multi-purpose historical location and less of an active place of worship (of course there is still a religious aspect, but just less so. I really get a very different feeling when I visit the Catholic churches and cathedrals. There are fewer tourists, and more 'believers'. I'm not sure if it's the same in other countries. Maybe that's just because of the philosophical/theological differences between Protestantism and Catholicism and the purpose of a church/cathedral? Not sure. Diliff (talk) 14:34, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
      • I forgot to say also that permanent seating shouldn't mean that it's ok to cut them out of the image though. That was my original point but I got a bit distracted. ;-) I think actually it should be more important to include the seating if it is an architecturally relevant part of the church.
