  • IMO there is way too much contrast and clarity. The photo has almost only black and white with very few grey tones in between. I know it's a style, but in this case it comes off a bit too harsh. --cart-Talk 11:25, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
  • @W.carter: I don't think this is really true. There is a large black area, so the linear histogram is not very developed. But if you look at the logarithmic histogram, you can see a lot of grey. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:31, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

On most days the sky tends to become colorless (unless there are pink clouds) during the time between sunset and peak blue hour, and this day is no exception. As a result, the sky is uninteresting and the buildings are just too dark. Take it an hour before sunset, and they will still be illuminated by the sun; take it an hour after sunset, and the sky will have darkened to a beautiful rich blue, allowing the streetlights to balance out the brightness of the sky. -- King of ♠ 18:23, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

  • I did look at the original. The border looks a bit strange in the original, but it's clearly consistently parallel to the rest of the table, and therefore understandable as part of it. In the current version, it looks a bit ghostly and patchy, so it seems like some kind of defect in the photograph, instead of something that was actually there. I wouldn't be able to give any technical suggestions, but perhaps it might work best to rework that part of the photo from the RAW? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:13, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info All by me -- WClarke 04:39, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I've seen versions of this diagram, and have found the concept to be helpful, so I decided to make my own public-domain version for Wikipedia. Hopefully it is something photographers here can appreciate. At the very least, if it's not worth featuring, I can get comments from people who know this subject well. Thanks. -- WClarke 04:39, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Visually it is rather plain, and I don't think it is a work of illustrative art on the level of the best FP diagrams. Secondly I have never understood why some books refer to an exposure triangle. I suppose they think "three" and assume a triangle is a suitable visual metaphor. The corners of the triangle have nothing in common (e.g. freezes motion & shallow DoF), nor to they represent limits to any scale (one can go slower than 1s and faster than 1/1000s). Changing one dimension just makes a different shaped triangle, but doesn't tell you how the three attributes interact to form an image -- the area of the triangle for example, isn't relevant. A better visual metaphor is a cube, where the brightness of the resulting image relates to the volume, and the width = shutter duration, height = aperture size, and depth = ISO. An increase in any of these results in greater brightness. If one uses an appropriate scale, doubling the width (shutter duration) can be compensated by halving the height (aperture size) or depth (ISO) and the same volume (brightness) results. However, at the level of physics, only aperture and shutter speed matter to determine how many photons hit the sensor (if we exclude filters, adding flash light and sensor size as variables the photographer can control), since ISO in the digital age is simply post-capture amplification. -- Colin (talk) 07:35, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
  • The ISO thing makes more sense if you think of it as film sensitivity, so I wouldn't complain about that. But what's bothering me about this and all the other attempts I've see so far is that it doesn't actually tell you anything about exposure. What it should probably tell you is that, for example, at ISO 100, f/8 @ 1/250 will give you the same exposure as f/11 @ 1/125. Increase ISO to 200 and you'll get the same exposure as before at f/8 @ 1/125 or f/11 @ 1/250, or … . This attempt does this "for any given ISO", but you don't need a triangle for that. If demonstrating exposure is not the intention of this, it shouldn't be called an "exposure triangle". But then I think something like the first chart on this page would be much better suited to visualize the non-exposure related effects of changing aperture, shutter speed and film/sensor sensitivity. --El Grafo (talk) 09:46, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
    • Agree that the diagram on the other page is better to show the effects of changing settings on the image qualities (other than exposure). The cube model does "explain" exposure and how the values each affect the total, but it isn't a particularly complex concept that one needs an analogy -- how much light is gathered by the sensor. The shutter duration and ISO values both double when the exposure doubles (goes up one stop). Only the aperture is strange with all those f/5.6 and f/8 numbers that don't seem to follow a sensible scale nor go the right direction! It makes more sense once you convert to the circular area of the aperture (e.g. f/8 is 122mm² on a 50mm lens, and f/5.6 is 250mm² which is double the area). I don't think the "triangle" model is adding anything useful. -- Colin (talk) 13:48, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Yes there are a lot of nice photos of fine gardens, but that alone is not an argument for dismissing another photo of such a place. This place has potential but this photo is not it. This is a scene where you have to work with the different textures in the photo: water, lawn, flowers, trees, just like you would an abstract photo. Framing this so you get some cool diagonal angles would have been better. For example, the tree to the left is totally redundant, it only hinders the viewer to enter the photo and the flowers to the right are cut too short at the bottom, some more water wouldn't hurt. --cart-Talk 08:42, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @W.carter:The left/right angle could be narrowed but just below the bottom are plants that grow up from the bridge rail and to get the main scene in focus the plants are way out of focus.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - The photo seems to clearly slope down to the left of center, and at least the smaller dome on the right seems to slope down to the right.

  • @Ikan Kekek: my guess would be lens distortion, which is pretty common in drone cameras (but not always as recognizable as here, depending on what's depicted). The focal length of 8.8 mm has about the same field of view as a 24 mm lens on 135 format ("Full Frame"). That's a pretty wide angle, so some distortion can be expected. But it seems that there are options for automated software correction available for Adobe products [1]. --El Grafo (talk) 14:12, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Thanks for that info, El Grafo. A.Savin, any comments about this? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:30, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Yes, if you wish. My intention was, to show the entire central dome as close as possible. Not sure is some distortion on the small domes (of them at least two always will appear along with the big one) is evitable, nor if I could do any more about it with LR/PS.

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral A very beautiful scene of course - but a bit weak technically. I think the bar for cityscapes at FPC has risen high enough that a 35 MP image warrants pixel-peeping. On the right the green buildings aren't really sharp, and there is Canon banding in the recovered shadow on the left (as well as a little in the road on the right). Still, these are not huge concerns so remaining neutral. -- King of ♠ 22:56, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The right side is a bit of a problem, but I take the main subject here to be the large square building on the mid-left, so I'll focus my attentions on that. It is of pretty good quality considering the conditions. I agree that the technical quality could have been a bit higher, but on the other hand I'm following the FPC rule that an image can be promoted anyway (as long as the flaws are not too bad) if the wow factor is sufficient.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - I really like the colors, but I'd like more room in front of the church in general and in front of and to the right of the cemetery in particular, and when I look at the photo at full size to see if there's something that could compensate for that, the blurry parts that are too close to focus become obtrusive, starting close to the center of the near side of the picture frame. So while I'm definitely sympathetic to the supporters' reactions, I am introducing a note of dissension here. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:02, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I suspect that if you got more room below, you'd lose more of the colorful vineyards (assuming that's what they are) behind the church, and you might get more of those blurred branches. It's a trade-off ... since it's Germany I can't tell easily from Street View what the lay of the land was like, but it does look like the church is at the bottom of a small valley.

The fisherman's bicycle
  • Ezarate: Actually, the whole scene is the subject but that is hard to convey in a short title, as was the category. I don't think this is suitable for the FP category "Bicyles", perhaps "People" but the nearest I could come up with was "Places". Suggestions are welcome. I know that scenes are usually sneered at here since people just want plain clear photos of one identifiable subject. I think scenes that tell a story have a place here too. --cart-Talk 12:09, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

But invisibly dark spots are natural in caves, and what really works for me is the composition, which inexorably pulls me toward the exit - literally, the light at the end of the tunnel.

Red-stripped Oil Beetle
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Animals/Arthropods
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The Red-stripped Oil Beetle Berberomeloe majalis [2] is one of the largest beetles in Europe, with a typical length of 5cm. In the larval state they are parasitic and live in the nests of solitary bees. In the adult state they are exclusively herbivorous and can be found in great numbers grazing in the dry and open grasslands of Portugal, Spain and Northern Africa. While the best-known specimens exhibit the typical red stripes from which their name derived, populations of entirely black beetles, like the one in the image, are also common.
