I failed to update the nomination with the new version in a timely manner, and on cart's advice, I withdrew to renominate the new version. Sorry for the confusion -- I'm still learning standard FPC processes. It's a museum on the San Francisco Bay, with Angel Island in the immediate background and the city skyline in the far distance, behind a sailboat. — Rhododendrites talk |  22:32, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Now it's converted into a residential area but the crane remains since it is one of the well-known landmarks in Gothenburg. The photo is not taken with a drone but from deck 8 on MS Stena Danica which provided an excellent way of documenting the north shore of Göta River.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support An old one (2012 !) But as I just met the cavalry regiment a few minutes ago in the streets of Paris, it remembers me this picture. I think the compo is good (military looking right, waiting the arrival of the President, and the horses absolutely don't care, both looking left). An excellent document too: it shows in details the differences of uniforms, equipments and harnesses, between a Guard (gendarme, left) and an Officer (captain, right), of the cavalry regiment of the french "Garde Républicaine". White pants are worn only when the Chief of State (the President) is present. This prestige military unit belongs to the Gendarmerie Nationale.-- Jebulon (talk) 14:49, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - This could be a useful VI, except that video clips are unfortunately not accepted at VIC. However, as an FP candidate, I'm finding it a bit boring. I would have suggested editing out the time that the train is in tunnels (or all but the time needed to sufficiently identify the tunnel on the screen and show the entrance and exit from it). I'm also really bothered by the picture quality. It's really too light and quite blown in places. If the picture quality were the video equivalent of photos by Kabelleger, I might find the clip captivating even while waiting for the train to get out of the tunnel. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:06, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Starts out with overexposed shot and continues in rather low quality. The slow pace makes it look like a bad version of those "slow TV" films the Norwegiens are so fond of making and that's not working as an FP. --cart-Talk 09:07, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Photographing the whole length of such a train (with such detail) any other way would require a lot of work. I might also add that the way you display all the photos here is very clever. At first I didn't realize that I was in fact looking at 16 photos when I tugged the slider in the nomination. :) --cart-Talk 10:39, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Out of curiosity... How does the speed of the subject affect the capture? I believe verticals are affected a little here. Also, do you have to input the speed of the subject at a given moment, or does the thing work like magic? - Benh (talk) 18:02, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • The speed changes the "aspect ratio". Slow objects are stretched horizontally and fast objects are compressed. I only scaled to make sure the train's proportions are correct. The train is moving at a nearly constant speed and its speed cannot possibly change much during the 5 seconds it took to capture this image. As for the slightly slanted verticals, it can be caused by a tilted camera (although I tried my best with a bubble level), or the fact that the camera is rotated about the yaw axis slightly to the right, and the sides of the train are slightly sloped. This can be corrected digitally using a shear transform, but I don't think it's necessary and re-processing the whole thing is quite time consuming due to the large size of the image. dllu (t,c) 18:12, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Thank you for ur answer. I thought if you input the speed in a dedicated software which would work on raw data, the thing would set the "aspect ratio" accordingly (if I were the camera maker, I would provide this possibility). As for the verticals, I was thinking this could be because the thing scans from top to bottom (or the opposite but it doesn't matter). While this shouldn't affect slow moving subject, this should definitely affect fast subject like this train. I also thought software would fix this (if I were the camera maker... :) ). - Benh (talk) 18:21, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • It does not scan from top to bottom. Each line is read out simultaneously. I prefer to scan as fast as possible, do all postprocessing, and then scale the image to the right proportions. Scaling the image should always be done as the last step. This way, we can oversample, resulting in less noise and generally better image quality. I actually wrote some scripts to improve image quality. See: [1] (from top to bottom: unprocessed output, odd/even pixel normalization, pixel crosstalk mitigation, black point compensation). dllu (t,c) 18:39, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • That is quite interesting. I can't check everything in details, but this is implying the camera doesn't come with a proper set of tool/soft to make the most of the raw output, and that you work heavily on them with ur homemade scripts. Congrats for the work. It's very interesting, and the result is incredible and worth the pain. - Benh (talk) 19:09, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • It's a bit sad though if the camera doesn't let u alter the speed of the capture, so there's no unnecessary sampling between raw data and final output. Even if you don't know the exact speed, just imputing a rough estimation at capture time should greatly improve quality. - Benh (talk) 19:13, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
  • The camera does let you change the speed of capture, but as I mentioned, it's better to capture as fast as possible and then scale it down later. It gives better image quality this way. dllu (t,c) 20:14, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Jebulon compared to last shots, i think your monitor isnt set correct. Shots are dark, colors dull. Something might be wrong. Laptop ?--Mile (talk) 11:01, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Mile, thanks for advice. But I watch my pictures on two monitors, one MAC27 at home, and one PC19 at work. And I don't see what you say. I don't understand really what "dull" mean in this case. The fact is that the light is very harsh in summer in Greece, and I used a polarizing filter. Maybe there is something on that side. Anyway, even if I disagree with you for the most part, thanks again for interest and help.--Jebulon (talk) 14:56, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Jebulon, I think you are right that the polarization filter is what is causing the problem. From what I know, strong, harsh light is not usually a reason to use such a filter. It is more designed to get rid of reflections on surfaces. I think stong light is better to control by altering the APEX exposure bias (say -0,7 or so) and fix things later in post-processing. I recently did a test myself to see how a polarizing filter altered a scene and the result looks a bit like your photo. I shot the exact same scene with and without a filter on a very bright and sunny day. I think it's a matter of taste which version you prefer. --cart-Talk 17:01, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Abandoned my PL long time ago, nothing good of them. Never sharp as original. --Mile (talk) 18:10, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

  • @Benh, PetarM, Jebulon, W.carter: If I may offer my very humble opinion on polarizing filters...and I readily admit I don't have the knowledge or experience you all have, but I like my circular polarizing filters. In my experience, they can cut sunlight, affect colors---making them brighter or darker depending on where the sun is and where you turn the filter to, and cut reflections. See [2] and [3]. Just my two cents. PumpkinSky talk 01:51, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Something like that. You also loose some 1/3-half of stop. Checked EXIF of Jebulon shot. Focal 54 mm, Manual exposure, 1/60 sec, f/10, ISO 50. I would say, if you got best PL, you might loose in this Manualising. Automatic isnt that stupid, sometimes is better to leave it. I would say isnt sharp due to large time, i doubt its was on tripod. Tint +6 (i never saw od daylight that much), Vibrance +34, Blacks +28, Clarity +41, Luminance Adjustment Blue: -17. I think its more spoiled in software, with losing sharpness with handmoving (in case you got best and expencive PL), otheriwse add PL in it. --Mile (talk) 08:09, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Poco and Hockei. An FP can be taken from this angle, I believe. And in this light. But polarizing the whole image was probably too much. I might've gone with a GND, or used the sea from the polarized image with the land from an unfiltered one and, perhaps, GND'd sky. But that might have been too much manipulation for some people.
