  • I agree you shouldn't do any cropping. Charlesjsharp (talk) 13:37, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    • Given there isn't an exact edge to a negative like this - it's progressively more and more damaged at the edges (especially the right edge on this one), so any crop is somewhat of a judgement call - I'd say that this includes (more or less) all usable parts of the original negative.

White stork (Ciconia ciconia), fitted with transmitter, takes plastic sheeting to its nest.
  • Gallery: Commons:Featured pictures/Animals/Birds#Family : Ciconiidae (Storks)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info There is bad news and good news. Farmers in southern Spain use many tons of plastic sheeting to retain moisture in the soil. It ends up everywhere and little is biodegradable. The storks use it for nest material and the chicks don't know it isn't food. The white stork used to be IUCN Near Threatened, but conservation efforts have increased numbers. This bird carries a radio transmitter.

Church portal of St.Julian's Church, Setúbal, Portugal.
  • Gallery: Commons:Featured pictures/Objects/Architectural elements#Doors
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Church portal of St.Julian's Church, in Portuguese "Igreja de São Julião", located on the centric Praça de Bocage (town hall quare), Setúbal, Portugal. The church was originally built in the second half of the 13th century in medieval style and was rebuilt at the beginning of the 16th century by order of King Manuel I in Manueline style. In 1531 a strong earthquake struck Setúbal and the church was damaged; the building was considerably modified in Mannerist style and reinaugurated in 1570. The original church was almost completely destroyed by the Great Earthquake of 1755 and was greatly rebuilt and redecorated in the last third of the 18th century following the late Baroque style. From this stage date the general appearance of the façade, the inner wooden roof, the painted tiles, the main and lateral altarpieces and the main chapel. Today it is the main church (matriz) of the city classified as National Monument in 1910. c/u/n by Poco a poco (talk) 21:00, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Wouldn't the door look better if lightened? Charlesjsharp (talk) 14:02, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Well, I don't feel to be the right person to answer that, rather the heritage responsible in the city council, but I consider the portal around the door much more interesting and ornamental (and probably worthy in terms of legacy) than the door itself. There is not much texture in the door, that's probably the reason why they didn't focus there, and the few features of the door are already subtle lit and can be perceived IMHO Poco a poco (talk) 17:59, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Too dark, it might have helped to use a Maglite or similar, to put some additional light on the door. --A.Savin 19:41, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • No, sorry, not an option to me adding on my own any additional lighting to get some areas more lit. Please, assess the image the way it looks in reality. If I add a maglite by myself I could understand that some reviewers opposed because of manipulation. Poco a poco (talk) 20:19, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    ok so if you add flash, it's a manipulation? What about all the underwater pics you take with flash then? Benh (talk) 09:24, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • That's a different animal, Benh. If I light a scene underwater or push the luminance bar to the top during processing I'm not changing the composition. If I add a light to the door it does. That would be a change of the apperance, a change of the ornamental view of the portal. That's at least the way I see it. Poco a poco (talk) 09:38, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • The title leads me to conclude it's an HDR photo, so you have already manipulated reality haven't you? I downloaded your image then reduced shadows and highlights in Photoshop and I liked the result. Charlesjsharp (talk) 11:42, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Like Alexander says below, it's the same. You are (quoting you) "adding additional lighting to get some areas more lit". As long as u don't par away too far from reality, it's fine in my view. Sometimes it even gets you closer to what your eyes can actually see. - Benh (talk) 15:37, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Artificial light (be it the exterior illumination of a structure, flashlight of a camera, or anything else) is always a manipulation of reality, if you like. However I don't see any problem about it. --A.Savin 12:35, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Typo? This was shot 'wide open'. Asking for more of a bird this far away to be in focus is not really a demand for high DoF is it? For me, this has no wow. It looks like an ordinary capture of a scene that's all too common. Charlesjsharp (talk) 13:22, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This effect is very pronounced for structure sizes that are a bit below the resolution of the camera. Strangely the drone camera seems to be more prone to this than my DSLR, I can't really explain why, maybe something with the debayering isn't ideal. I don't really have a solution for this; reducing noise reduction doesn't help. --Kabelleger (talk) 12:28, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
      • Thank you for the explanation! It’s good to know that this is an effect of the camera itself and not of overdone post-processing (I thought that there was too much noise reduction, this can sometimes show a similar effect). Well, I think it’s still good, especially because the train and other important structure are not affected by it. --Aristeas (talk) 14:56, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A common criticism of landscape images nominated here is that the photographer has overprocessed them. Therefore, I would like to nominate this picture for a change ;–). It is a very atmospheric autumn scene, but IMHO at the same time very natural and realistic. I can almost feel the warm evening sun breaking through the thinning canopy of leaves and bathing the forest in golden light. The fact that there is a slight reduction of contrast in the upper left (almost inevitable due to technical reasons) is not a fault: it contributes significantly to the sunny mood of the picture. --Aristeas (talk) 08:19, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment, gynandromorphism in butterflies can be due to double fertilization of a binucleate egg, with variety of combinations in the sex chromosomes, leading to both male and female characteristics in the same specimen. Technically, its not termed as hermaphrodite, but yes, their genitalia can have all kinds of combinations like only male, only female, or both male and female. -- Bodhisattwa (talk) 05:49, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Not opposing -- just wondering out loud. — Rhododendrites talk |  22:00, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Good point, Rhododendrites. This event ripped open deep wounds and trenches at that time. Katyń is a symbol of the great national trauma of the murder of several thousand Polish officers by the Soviets in 1940, the guilt of which was only acknowledged by Gorbachev in 1990. Traumatic was also the denial and suppression of this truth by the communist rulers in the PR Poland. The delegation in the plane wanted to commemorate this crime and was killed with a blow. A week after the accident, I was on the streets of Warsaw during the official mourning ceremonies and felt the paralysis of the people. Perhaps the comparatively usual photo impresses me more because of the personal experience. -- Radomianin (talk) 05:00, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • GA candidate.svg Weak support Per Rhododendrites it's not the aesthetics, but the historical value and the street-photography immediacy the angle and grayscale imbue it with. Daniel Case (talk) 17:22, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Świętokrzyski Bridge
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Świętokrzyski Bridge in Warsaw is an adequate description to me. We see a couple of towers and a bunch of girders. And this is good as an abstract composition, but I haven't decided whether I consider it an FP. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:48, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is a great idea but for me it's one of these photos that would have to be roughly symmetrical in the lines and shapes, and the fact that it's a little off centre means it falls a little short to me Cmao20 (talk) 12:39, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support works for me. yes, would be better if it were symmetrical, but I appreciate the motif/effect. A question, though, near the top-left of the left tower one of the cables seems to just end in mid-air. What's going on there? What don't I understand about the construction? — Rhododendrites talk |  21:57, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Take a look at File:Most Świętokrzyski 2013 (3).JPG for example. The cables end in black "knobs" near the towers. I think one of these is responsible for the illusion. --Cart (talk) 01:43, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Such a beautiful picture and so clean image (given it's a long exposure, night photography). I have admired the earlier works of this user before too (line scan photos of trains). Only three things are bothering me - The intensity of bright red reflection on water, the intensity of bright blue light at the top of the skyscraper in right and there is a prominent banding across the sky which encircle the upper side of the moon and stretches all the way towards the right of the frame. All three I think easily fixable in LR. If done it's a support from me - Subhrajyoti07 (talk) 13:33, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I love the composition of the cityscape part. And I guess it would work with the bridge. But the red reflections—not just distracting but posterized in a way such reflections are not in other long-exposure night cityscapes with water reflections—are a dealbreaker.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Very standard image one gets if photographing at the entrance of a tunnel. Just a photo of a friend with backpack on a walk, like anyone might take, and turning it b&w doesn't make it artistic. Compare File:SMP May 2008-9a.jpg and File:The Photographer.jpg where the silhouette is worth capturing. -- Colin (talk) 09:25, 8 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I agree with Colin.--Ermell (talk) 21:50, 8 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Well, as the title says, during winter this is a tunnel for pedestrians passing under the skiing slope (Dreiseenbahn 1), located in Tyrolean Kühtai. Same way, as the photographer of the cited marvellous pictures was fascinated by the contrast of the black and white areas, I was caught by the contrast of the concentric rings of the metal tube focusing my view on the person and the end of the tunnel leading her/us into the invisible world outside. --PtrQs (talk) 00:12, 9 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is one of the rather rare occasions where I'll have to disagree with Colin. In my opinion, this one fits in very well with the other two examples, while still being different enough to stand out. While the other ones focus a lot on the entries and/or exits of the tunnels, the landscape orientation and structured walls in this one put much stronger emphasis on the tunnel itself. The Photographer is about to step into the light. You're just observing, this is not about you. The joggers have already made it to the other side, while you're not even inside yet. You have no clue what they've gone though. But this one puts you right in the darkest part and while you can see the light, there's still a long way to go. The person a few steps ahead of you seems to say "come on, let's go", ready to take your hand and venture into the unknown. Or maybe from over there they can already see something you can't? The silhouette itself may not be as interesting as the one in "The Photographer", but I find the backpack very fitting. One of the strongest symbolic images I've seen here for a while. --El Grafo (talk) 08:12, 9 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I agree. One of the things that really struck me and appealed to me about this photo is precisely that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but that's all you can see past the tunnel, and it can represent many things. Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:10, 9 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, yes, lots of things to discover in there - or in yourself, while looking at it. Here's a more fun one: James Bond gun barrel sequence. It's my desktop wallpaper now, which is noteworthy because I usually just use a plain calm color fill. El Grafo (talk) 10:51, 9 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
