    • The tripod is forbidden in most museums. With these principles you limit diversity. What is the ISO limit number for a photo to be acceptable? --S. DÉNIEL (talk) 06:38, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Most photos simply can't be FPs. FPs are supposed to be among the very best photos on the site. Have you looked at COM:VIC? Even museum photos that are not great can be valuable, and if they're best in a particular scope that's deemed sufficiently notable (such as this sculpture probably would be), they can get the Valued Image designation. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:05, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Thanks for these tips. What is the ISO limit number for a photo to be acceptable for you? --S. DÉNIEL (talk) 08:34, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
  • I think it completely depends on the subject and the type of photography. Here some people will find your picture noisy at 125 ISO only because of their lack of enthusiasm for your subject, and sometimes they will forgive 1600 ISO or more since the situation is special, justified by some features (moving subject in a dark place, telephoto, etc.) -- Basile Morin (talk) 09:29, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Unfortunately, I'm rather ignorant when it comes to grapes, other than that they and their products are tasty. I only learned that Javier chose Solaris since they are hardy and can survive in this climate. --Cart (talk) 15:46, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
@W.carter: Yes, that's what the article says, but not its Swedish counterpart yet unfortunately. But both of them do explain how it was bred, and it appears the dark spots are really just a coincidence as there is absolutely no Chardonnay in their ancestry. Daniel Case (talk) 02:23, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Composition! How long did it take you to move the farmers fingers to the right direction that they started to make a pleasing form? Also, any other colour of the farmer's T-shirt would spoil it but it seems like he was carefully choosing the right green gradient until he found the right fit for the color of the grass and the grapes. --Podzemnik (talk) 14:51, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
  • You are right on both accounts. :) I did manhandle the poor guy a bit to get the photo as good as I could. The hardest part was getting him in position so that the angle of the light became just right for the grapes. At first he was a bit annoyed with me taking up time from the harvest, but he brightened considerably when he realized he was also getting free photos of his vineyard to use. I was extremely lucky that he had such a fashion sense, any other shirt and the photo would have been ruined. But that is what photography so often is about: luck, the color of a shirt, a cloud or a ray of light in the right place. Things you can't control, only do your darnedest to capture when you see them. --Cart (talk) 15:54, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

  • @Ikan Kekek: It's small because as soon as I got closer, they ran off (I'm clumsier than they are in a rocky desert), and that's the longest focal length I had/have available to me (150mm, equivalent to 300mm full frame). — Rhododendrites talk |  15:08, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Yes, very small and the lighting not so good. A bit soft. 1/1600 sec/F5.6 not a good choice for a static scene. Charles (talk) 11:40, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
  • If it were a situation when I could've used a tripod vs. freehandling at 150mm (equivalent to 300mm full frame) on rocky ground, I'd agree re: shutter. Perhaps I could've brought it down a little bit from 1/1600 and still be safe, but it was just shortly before I left the desert and the only time I saw kids together like this, nevermind close enough to photograph, so wanted to be safe because there was no shortage of light and they were just so cute :).

That might make it a VI, but what's the argument for FP? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:12, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg weak suppoert I took some time deciding this one. On the one hand, Bertha von Suttner is a very important historical figure, so the legitimacy of the nomination is beyond question. It's also a photo from 1906 (read that again, nineteen oh-freakin' six, it's over 100 years old!), so I think we can forgive the overall lack of sharpness. I just wish the resolution was higher, and I'm also not sure about the quality of the restoration. It looks OK compared to the original, but.. hmmmm..... Well, it's borderline, and I may be a bit taken with it since I basically live and breathe history. If anyone else out there want to have something to compare it to, in order to find the standard set for historical FPs, here they are.--Peulle (talk) 07:58, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Beside of this: this image was obviously not taken from a public approachable place so we have no panorama of freedom here and I question the rightfulness of this image. --Wladyslaw (talk) 06:47, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Freedom of panorama in Singapore is ✓OK for 3D objects and all the buildings, see this category. The noise is normal for a night shot and the resolution is high enough, compare for example with this FP shot from the same roof -- Basile Morin (talk) 07:08, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
    • I didn't say s.th. against the resolution. But the noise is not good, especially for such a camera like the 5D Mark IV. Read the definition of FoP carefully and you will see that this image doesn't fit in. --Wladyslaw (talk) 07:31, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
  • This is not a definition for FoP, but an explanation. The location where this picture was taken from the observation deck of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The access to this point causes costs, is private ground of the hotel and therefore not a public place in the common definition. --Wladyslaw (talk) 08:07, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
  • The existance of a category in Commons is not a valid proof. FoP means in many countries that your place, where you have taken the image, hast to be public. For sure you're able to show me the law of Singapure where this point is not relevant. --Wladyslaw (talk) 09:48, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - They are sometimes available in Chinatown, though they are smaller than Malaysian mangosteens and not as good. But even a mediocre mangosteen, as long as it's ripe, is delicious. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 16:56, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
  • I read a while back that, at least at one point, it operated as kind of a black market in NYC's Chinatown, because they're illegal to import for some agricultural/pest reasons. Or at least illegal to import from the main places that grow them. There was a NYT or New Yorker article years ago about how locals could make a special request and some grocers would have a secret stash in the back. Possibly that ban has been lifted or enough other countries grow them and can send them over since then, though... — Rhododendrites talk |  17:11, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Read w:Purple mangosteen: "Without fumigation or irradiation (in order to kill the Asian fruit fly) fresh mangosteens were illegal to import into the United States until 2007." Now they're legal, but like I said, the ones you can get here are nowhere near as good as fresh Malaysian ones. But get a couple anyway when you can. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:23, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
  • @Rhododendrites: If mangosteens are difficult to find in the US, you really have to go to Asia or or any country where they're cultivated to taste them, it's going to be worth the trip :-) Honestly, they're very unique with delicious flavor, and easy to eat when they are ripe like that.

Wemyss Bay railway station concourse
  • This photo, as with many I took that day, was taken with my Samyang 10mm ultra wide-angle lens. It has an angle-of-view of 109.6° which is as far as you can reasonably take a rectilinear lens. This photo was taken with the camera pointing slightly up, to bring in more ceiling and less boring concrete floor, and then corrected afterwards in Lightroom. Unlike with my stitched photos, I'm far more restricted about where to crop and the sharpness is not as good, though I think still quite acceptable. I tried to position the camera in the middle to get pleasing symmetrical results, but it isn't perfect. One problem is the sign, which you can see in File:Wemyss Bay railway station concourse 2018-08-25 5.jpg (middle-left) and is bright red, white and yellow and very distracting if you saw that in the middle of the scene. I tried to position so it was edge-on and not catch the eye. It isn't the sort of sign I can just lift up and move out of the way, without getting arrested by the transport police :-). You can also see from that photo how the top of the ceiling in the photo has curved over towards me and is quite close. This will cause the wide-angle perspective distortion by magnifying, but I think here the straight lines of the roof don't look unpleasantly distorted. Other things like round windows and people tend to illustrate that distortion in a more uncomfortable manner. I agree it isn't a perfect photo and I'd have liked to have had the time to make a stitched panorama. -- Colin (talk) 07:39, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your rich explanation and, I understand what is your intention here, however, I think that this photo is not up to your previous work. I hope you can take my negative feedback as a stimulation to do better job (maybe in a combination of nodal ninja photos). Sincerely this place deserves a perfectionist work that you have accustomed us to appreciate and taste, with enormous size and majestic quality. Obviously my opinion about this photo is little shared, or simply people vote positively because we love you --Photographer 23:57, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
The Photographer, ha ha, I'm not sure about "love". I hope I've ruffled enough feathers with oppose votes and criticism that nobody should feel bad about giving me an oppose if warranted. I guess this is more similar to my fisheye photos than my stitched panorama photos. Or as a good photo of a great subject, rather than a great photo of a great subject, which would be ideal. I would love to go back and take a better shot but that's quite unlikely any time soon. I live 400 miles away, the weather is not always as good as this, and stations can be busy. -- Colin (talk) 07:30, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
