@Code:Unfortunately, I guess the uploader is no longer active here; I just stumbled upon the pic and noticed it fulfils the technical requirements for nomination, so I thought it was worth trying (in my opinion the photo really deserves it). --GeXeS (talk) 15:00, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Too small. It looks like the kind of shot that could have been promoted in 2012 but then delisted in 2018 since standards have moved along and the photo is no longer good enough.--Peulle (talk) 15:52, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

@Peulle: I checked again and it's not. What may be giving you that impression is that I wasn't exactly on the center axis as I took the photo. Daniel Case (talk) 04:02, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
That might be it, yes. I'm checking the horizontals and that's when I see that things on the left aren't lining up with the right. I don't see any problems with the verticals, though.--Peulle (talk) 15:54, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Beautiful photo, especially the glass roof. Unfortunately three people in the front are disturbing the composition too much (especially the boy in the left corner) --Michielverbeek (talk) 22:04, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
@Michielverbeek: Usually I roll my eyes at "Ewww! People" opposes to things like this but I admit with this one you may have a point. I will see if Peulle's right about the tilt (I don't think so, but you never know) and probably crop the people mostly out so all you see is tops of heads. Would that work better? Daniel Case (talk) 22:10, 14 July 2018 (UTC) I don't think the people problem is repairable. I guess it would have been better if you would take this photo some seconds before or after --Michielverbeek (talk) 20:52, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - A mall with people. It's fine, IMO. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:37, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The composition brings to mind The School of Athens. --Cart (talk) 12:59, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are many similar pictures from the gallery. I don't think this is outstanding.--Ermell (talk) 19:50, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Cut feet and distracting head seen from behind in the foreground. Also I agree with Peulle there's a small tilt (fixable) visible on the left side with this part of the building being not perfectly vertical. The roof is wonderful, but unfortunately we can't cut the image over the crowd, so we really have to compose with these people walking. In this kind of situation, I usually use a tripod and wait quite long, until an interesting configuration occurs, neutral or special (extra value if someone creates something). But that's not easy, and subject to luck. Here I'm bothered by the crowded bottom. Not enough free space on the floor visually to breath and feel an elegant composition -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:40, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

    KoH I just checked it and 2/3 stop would be definitely too much, the atmosphere of the images would be essentially different. If Smial wants I can offer a alternative version. Poco2 07:11, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It's a pretty good image, but the combination of the bridge and building doesn't quite work for me. If the bridge had been the subject I might have been convinced with that nice yellow steel construction on the left, but right now the buildings in the background are disturbing that impression. So the buildings and the bridge are disturbing each other. Perhaps a different angle might have worked.--Peulle (talk) 12:59, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per Colin; it looks great as a thumbnail but when looking at it, the quality and crispness just isn't there. As far as the categories go, this is not an elk, it's a deer, so that needs tidying up.--Peulle (talk) 18:54, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --Karelj (talk) 21:32, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The head and the body of the deer are not sharp. I think f/4 at 420mm here is not enough, and also 1/15s too long to avoid motion blur. Concerning the light, there are blown highlights. The composition may be interesting but the quality is not there -- Basile Morin (talk) 02:19, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

In this case, the color is always #7085C8.

  • Yup, I know, but I rarely use ISO50 as it doesn't improve on noise or iq. It's basically just a pulled ISO 100 setting that's useful for longer exposures... So in your case it wasn't necessary... --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 07:45, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think it's a nice scene, but to me it looks like it's slightly stretched vertically? A simple aspect adjustment in Lightroom would fix it. It's subtle, though, so probably a good idea to wait for someone else to confirm what I think I see. :) — Rhododendrites talk |  00:36, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, it's a great scene but there are several really distracting issues. Would move to support if they are fixed (they are all fixable, I think). I still think a slight perspective/aspect correction would help, agree with Peulle regarding the top-right chimneys area (though this seems the most minor of the bunch), and in addition to the stitching issues highlighted by Ermell, there is also, for example, a woman wearing two shoes on one foot in the black and white striped dress at the bottom. Presumably not just a regional fashion trend. :) — Rhododendrites talk |  19:50, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
✓ Done Thanks Ermell for add the notes to fix the stitching, clone stamp, noise, lines don´t match and masking remainings issues. Please let me know what do you think. With regard to the comment on the perspective, I personally can not see any error, please feel free to help me. @Rhododendrites:, @Peulle: --The Photographer 01:24, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
@The Photographer: Great. I've made the aspect/perspective adjustment and uploaded a new version here, then reverted to your most recent. To my eye, the stretched perspective was visible in many of the people, but one ~objective example is the car wheel, one of the few things that should be the same width and height (roughly -- perspective changes it a little), but in the original it is clearly taller than it is wide. With so many people supporting, though, you may want to consider whether you think it's an improvement. :) — Rhododendrites talk |  01:57, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Rhododendrites for your help, I will wait for the opinion of Peulle, Ermell and why not @Colin:, he always criticized me about perspectives fixes in the past that made me hate him, but now I practically have to beg him to criticize me.--The Photographer 02:13, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
I've tried to compare against other images, and also Google street map. The chimneys are extra all and so unusual to our eyes. I think overall they are not rendered over-tall in this image bearing in mind that it is using a standard perspective that keeps verticals straight and parallel without consideration that things high up are actually further away from us and so would appear smaller to the eye. That distortion increases as one gets close to the subject, and in street scenes it is often very difficult to get comfortably far enough back. So we just have to accept some perspective distortion effect (stretch vs sloping verticals) and judge whether it is too offensive for the eye (compare this which I think is quite silly). I also compared the overall aspect ratio of the building and think Rhododendrites is right that it is a too narrow. I selected the area of window frames and compared with several photos. A global aspect ratio change might be the simplest fix. It is possible the proportions on the far left were OK (or the guy is quite short) whereas I agree the people in the middle are a bit thin looking. It isn't easy to create a stitch by hand with this many people. I do like that one can zoom in and people-watch. -- Colin (talk) 07:15, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
Dear @Colin: I have applied a manual and complex perspective correction, based mainly on the wheel of the car, the letter "o" of "Trésor", the corrections made by Rhododendrites (thanks) and the comments that you have made (Please see this Gmaps point). Please, tell me what you think Colin, Rhododendrites and Ermell. Thanks again --The Photographer 03:04, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Daniel Case There is a fuzzy line when it comes to the question of quality, on the one side opinion being one, and everyone has an opinion, and on the other there are qualitative aspects that are measurable to a degree. However, what really strikes is how you seem to oppose a photograph for a moral reason. If the image does, as you say, trivialize an ethical issue, well, then, that in itself is a motive to use as an example of trivalization and therefore an effective image. However, as photographers it is not necessarily our job to judge over this or that issue, but to record the image and let the image be used to illustrate a phenomena, for good or bad. That is not to say that as a person one cannot take a position, for one way or another, by choosing a subject we choose sides, but we cannot forget that sometimes terrible images result in good consequences [[1]] . --Tomascastelazo (talk) 23:17, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
