The Chapel of Reconciliation on the grounds of the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse in Berlin.
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Architecture/Religious buildings
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The Chapel of Reconciliation on the grounds of the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse in Berlin. The chapel was designed by the architects Peter Sassenroth and Rudolf Reitermann and inaugurated on 9 November 2000. Why do I think this is more than just QI? Maybe it doesn’t have the WOW of a sunset mountain panorama, but I still think this could be FP. Taking this photo was significantly more difficult than it might seem. The chapel has a very unfavorable location. It is oriented to the north and that’s why there’s only a very short time window each day in which some morning sunbeams touch the chapel. I went there a hundred times to get a good light situation. Even when the light is good the chapel is not easy to photograph because the dynamic range is very large. It is hardly possible to get both the wooden poles and the interior well exposed. Therefore I used HDR in this case. Additionally it is quite difficult to get a picture of the chapel without people in front of it. The memorial site is very busy and normally dozens of school classes are running through the picture. The only thing I’m not sure about is the perspective. I'm not sure whether this is better? I’m looking forward to your opinions. All by me -- Code (talk) 18:23, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Code (talk) 18:23, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I appreciate your effort taking this photo (north facades are really bad as I know myself) and I also appreciate the detailed background information. The transparent architecture of the building is impressive, the photographic quality very high. For me there is one shortcoming: The distracting element at the left foreground destroying the inner silence of the photo. From this stance the other photo is better (but take a careful look, you've forgotten to crop a tiny element at the top left) --Tuxyso (talk) 19:16, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
  • @Tuxyso: Thank you very much for your detailed review which helped me a lot for my photographic formation. Do you think I should nominate the other picture instead or as an alternative? --Code (talk) 18:49, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
I would suggest it as alternative. Both photos are too similiar. --Tuxyso (talk) 20:50, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, I nominated it as an alternative. I will follow your suggestion and crop the tiny object on the left corner this evening when I'm back at my computer with Photoshop installed. --Code (talk) 07:55, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
  • @Tuxyso: I cropped the tiny element out now (in the alternative). Thanks again for your hint. --Code (talk) 19:22, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Extraordinary building indeed, but the capture of it is completely ordinary. There is nothing stunning in it which would make this picture different from the others. I think everyone could take such picture being there. That's why I think it would fit as QP much more. Pictures like this or this aren't worse in any way. Both of them are QP. -- Pofka (talk) 19:38, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
  • I think I explained why the capture is anything but ordinary. Which different composition would you recommend? --Code (talk) 18:49, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
  • I think that FP must have some kind of phenomena in it, which would cause WOW feeling and would be difficult to capture for others. Detailed and high resolution ordinary picture of a building doesn't have this, at least for me. Probably the main problem is the picture's subject/location as it doesn't seem to be worth more than QP: no mountains, no nature, no outstanding/luxurious/decorated architecture, etc. It is just a simple wooden chapel which at first might look exotic, but actually it isn't so. -- Pofka (talk) 16:09, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

I am not even sure that the image is an HDR. But the clouds are really odd: normally clouds have a blueish hue (that is more blue than green and red), but here they are perfect gray (eg. 193-193-193), imho the result of active desaturation. Only the small part above the lake is purple, which is quite sloppy editing. I am not saying that it is wrong to like the result visually, but EV is certainly badly impaired by - for documentary purposes - inappropriate editing. --DXR (talk) 17:18, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
I don't think it's a HDR, I think the sky and the mountains in the upper part were too blue in the opinion of the author and he tried to desaturate the 30% top of the image. -- Christian Ferrer 18:00, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Weak support I had a bit of doubt about the colors in remote targets here. It reminds me a bit of my personal pictures I've taken during my holidays where the main subject is located in a far distance (just like in this picture). I was strongly disappointed when I saw my pictures as they were just incomparable with the real view I saw. I think this picture has just the same issue, because colors depth is just incomparable with those around rocks and those behind the river, which looks quite toneless. Another picture nominated below with quite remote mountains as well doesn't have such issue, so I guess it is possible to solve this somehow. Still, despite this issue the picture is appealing and worth support. -- Pofka (talk) 16:31, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
    Pofka: I've played around with the WB and came to the conclusion that the current colors are quite loyal to reality. Can you give me a hint (bluish, greenish,...)? Poco2 17:21, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
    Added note where I think it is too pale. I think it should look much greener live. Only the remote (where I noted) parts have issues for me. All these rocks, bushes at the bottom are of a great tone. -- Pofka (talk) 20:39, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Sant'Andrea della Valle (Roma) - Dome
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Interiors/Religious buildings
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The fresco decoration of Sant'Andrea's dome was one of the largest commissions of its day. The work was disputed by two Carracci pupils, Giovanni Lanfranco and Domenichino. In 1608, Lanfranco had been chosen by Cardinal Alessandro, but the Ludovisi papacy of Pope Gregory XV favored the Bolognese Domenichino. In the end, both artists were employed, and Lanfranco's lavish dome decoration (completed 1627) set the model for such decorations for the following decades. This dome was for a long time the third largest dome in Rome, after the Basilica of St Peter and the Pantheon. All by LivioAndronico talk 11:50, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Yes Code but the point is that I do not have my camera in the HDR therefore face the speech: 1) Do these photos is not easy otherwise it says that are not centered! 2) I haven't the HDR in my Nikon D3200 so should I put my camera on the ground, change the position 2 or 3 times and put it back in the same spot (I point out that while I had the camera on the ground (I put it on the ground because I can not use a tripod, I challenge anyone to use a tripod in a church in the center of Rome, a priest with clear German accent and honestly very similar to Ratzinger told me: Finish do these antics and go out to them ... this is a church). 3) in addition, the domes are therefore always on the altar in a place where you can not go unnoticed. Grazie per il supporto Face-smile.svg --LivioAndronico talk 20:59, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Strange. I didn't know that the D3200 doesn't even support automatic exposure bracketing. Even the smaller Canons like my old 500D support AEB. You should buy yourself a new camera soon, I think your pictures would definitely benefit from a better equipment. P.S.: I hope you're not really putting the camera upon the altar, are you? However, the photo is good and the subject is nice. But it would definitely be better if you had used HDR. --Code (talk) 06:20, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm really surprised that the churches in Rome are so strict about tripods. Very few in England (or France) care about tripods. It might be a church but it is also a historical architectural building and should be documented well. After all, you're not destroying the sanctity simply by taking a photo! In fact, many people cause much more of a problem in a church by using a bad quality cheap camera with automatic flash turned on. The flash is so much more distracting for the visitors to the church than a tripod! Well, at least now I know not to bother trying to take photos in churches in Rome. But if I do visit, I'll definitely try to see how many times I can get away with a photo though. ;-) Diliff (talk) 23:21, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

@Laitche: Thanks for the review. I know the Sun is shinning on the building, but is evening Sun, and I personally like how it looks. About the angle, I like it more than a full front angle like this one:

@Tomascastelazo: Thanks for the suggestion, you mean this crop? If so I prefer no crop version :) --Laitche (talk) 17:23, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
@Laitche: A little more... Put the bird in line with the imaginary line of the right of rule of thirds. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 17:35, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
@Tomascastelazo: this one? --Laitche (talk) 17:40, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
@Laitche: Much better... the eye move across nicely from left to right and stops at the bird, after that it does not have much space to move on. The rule of thirds works pretty well most of the time. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 17:47, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

I'd go a tiny bit further left than your second crop above at chop at 3611px width from the left. To me, that's all nice dark water + reflection and the bird in contrast. You still have three elements, if you include the bird! -- Colin (talk) 18:21, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

There, the arrangement of everything makes sense to me. Here, The arrangement feels random. I'm not saying it's not possible that this much space around the subject can work. But the reflection of the fence (which gives the image an impression of human interference) isn't helpful and the flowers don't have a real positive impact. In my opinion. — Julian H. 06:59, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Action shots depend on the representation of movement. Movement on a a still image can be represented in two ways, the first is motion blurr in relation of two objects or the freezing of unnatural poses. For example, motion blurr in this case is non existent, we could be looking into parked trucks on a race track. The wheels are frozen and there is no sensation of movement. This type of shot is best achieved by panning the subect and to let the background become blurred, thus giving the impression of movement. The other type of frozen action is to capture via high shutter speeds the climax of a scene, like a basketball player in a high jump, a bullet frozen by flash, a dive of a a football player where we can se defining moments that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info San Cesareo in Palatio or San Caesareo de Appia is a titular church in Rome, near the beginning of the Appian Way. It is dedicated to Saint Caesarius of Africa, a 2nd-century deacon and martyr.In the 4th century, Emperor Valentinian was cured at the shrine of Caesarius at Terracina, the site of his martyrdom. The emperor then decided to move his relics to Rome. They were taken to a church on the Palatine Hill, and when they were later moved to a new church, that church got the name "in Palatio", "at the Palace". It is also known as San Cesareo de Appia.Excavations have revealed a Roman bath on the site from the 2nd or 3rd century, with a huge black and white mosaic depicting Neptune and marine creatures, along with foundations of what is thought to be the first church here, built in the 8th century.All by -- LivioAndronico talk 15:42, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Weak oppose Has wow for sure with nice golden colors, but I really find the image quality is dissapointing when looking just a bit closer (a 4 Mpixel preview). I do not quite understand the chosen camera setting. f/13 and ISO 320 @ 200 mm for a subject so far away? At f/9 you would still have DOF from 75m to infinity and then you could have chosen a much lower ISO and thus have reduced the noise. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:45, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Slaunger, though ISO 320 shouldn't really be noisy on a D800E. I can't accept a landscape photo can be FP at 4.4MP in 2015 with no justifying explanation. Sunsets really have to be both technically and artistically exceptional to reach FP, and this one is pretty like any sunset but not particularly original and the distant hills too indistinct. -- Colin (talk) 21:10, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for my english. For me it is not so important whether with f / 13, the picture was taken. Primary is about the effect of me. This has been confirmed to me the many assumptions in the state championship and the TRIERENBERG Super Circuit. There no one asks about the EXIF data. Nevertheless, thanks for your comments. I take the criticism of happy because I can learn. kindly --Böhringer (talk) 08:03, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Sure, many viewers would be very happy with a photo like this. I only looked at the EXIF after being a little dissapointed by the image quality and modest resolution. -- Slaunger (talk) 21:17, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
I hope neither Slaunger or I were guilty of reviewing the EXIF data rather than the photo! I don't think that is why either of us opposed. I don't think a 4MP landscape is feature-worthy in 2015, unless it was very original and amazing. -- Colin (talk) 08:55, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
What makes an image more than 20MB in 4MB to go on pixel search? The fact is that I find my best pictures without license information on the Internet for postcard printing, publications again in print media and other websites. Whether the image is original or grandiose decide the users. Your choice I respect equally. kindly --Böhringer (talk) 11:11, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
I'm afraid I don't understand your comment. Are you suggesting you limit your donations to Commons to 4MP in order to prevent people using them for postcards or websites? 4MP is plenty for a postcard or website, so don't really see why both limiting at all. Why not donate the 36MP your camera is capable of. If you want to only donate small pictures to Commons, that is your right, but I don't think they deserve FP then. -- Colin (talk) 11:22, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Guidelines for nominators
Resolution – Images (with the exception of animations, videos, and SVGs) of lower resolution than 2 million pixels (pixels, not bytes) are typically rejected unless there are 'strong mitigating reasons'. Note that a 1600 × 1200 image has 1.92 Mpx, just less than the 2 million level. A 1920 × 1080 image, commonly known as Full HD, has 2.07 Mpx, just more than the 2 million level. --Böhringer (talk) 14:05, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Nice image, but Colin is right about the resolution and your comment. You have to choose whether you want to sell you images or offer them to Commons. Personally, I am always happy and proud when my images are used elsewhere, even for commercial purposes. But I have chosen a long time ago not to sell my images. It is perfectly OK to expect a revenue for your work, but then it is incompatible with sharing them on Commons. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:25, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
  • You aren't saying anything we all don't knwo. That 2MP is the absolutely lowest limit. If this was a bird in flight then 4MP might be reasonable. For a landscape, no way. This is 2015. I don't know why you've started doing this because you used to nominate larger images like everyone else. The FP guidelines say "Images should not be downsampled". That's widely ignored provided the reduced-size image is still pretty large. But 4MP from a 36MP camera? Not reasonable. -- Colin (talk) 15:30, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
  • We all have that problem. I also find many of my pictures in the Internet without any license information and I take time to get that corrected. It usually works, but not always, and that is of course frustrating (would be great if the WMF would support us here). Still, I think that providing no content or less quality content is not the solution for the movement. If we all would do that, then soon we wouldn't have any FPs created by a Commonist. In fact, I will begin next week to upload 50 MP images to Commons, Poco2 13:00, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
