Formalien[edit]

Nominierung[edit]

Leitsätze für die Nominierung[edit]

Bitte lies alle Leitsätze (Englisch) vor der Nominierung.

Dies ist eine Zusammenfassung von Kriterien, auf die du bei der Einreichung und Bewertung von Exzellenz-Kandidaten achten solltest:

  • AuflösungFotografien mit einer Auflösung unter 2 Millionen Pixel werden in der Regel abgelehnt, außer unter „stark mildernden Umständen“. Beachte, dass ein 1600 x 1200 großes Foto 1,92 Megapixel hat und damit weniger als 2 Millionen.
Grafiken auf Commons können auch in anderen Weisen als zur Anzeige auf einen herkömmlichen Computerbildschirm verwendet werden. Sie können auch als Ausdruck oder zur Anzeige auf hochauflösenden Bildschirmen verwendet werden. Man kann nicht vorhersagen, welche Geräte in Zukunft Anwendung finden, deshalb ist es wichtig, dass die nominierten Bilder die höchstmögliche Auflösung haben.
  • Eingescannte Bilder – solange es keine offizielle Richtlinie gibt, findet man unter Help:Scannen für verschiedene Typen von Bildern Hinweise für die Vorbereitung, die hilfreich sein können.
  • Fokus – jedes wichtige Objekt im Bild sollte normalerweise scharf sein.
  • Vordergrund und Hintergrund – Objekte im Vorder- und Hintergrund können stören. Kontrolliere, ob etwas vor dem Motiv des Bildes wichtige Elemente verdeckt. Auch soll nichts im Hintergrund die Komposition verderben, zum Beispiel eine Straßenlampe, die über dem Kopf einer abgebildeten Person „steht“.
  • Allgemeine Qualität – nominierte Bilder sollten von hoher technischer Qualität sein.
  • Digitale Manipulationen betrügen nicht in jedem Fall den Betrachter. Digitale Nachbearbeitungen, um Fehler von Fotografien zu korrigieren, sind allgemein akzeptiert, vorausgesetzt, sie sind begrenzt und gut gemacht, ohne dabei betrügen zu wollen. Akzeptiert werden normalerweise Beschneiden, perspektivische Korrekturen, Schärfen und Verwischen sowie Farb- und Belichtungskorrekturen. Umfangreichere Korrekturen wie das Entfernen von störenden Hintergrundobjekten sollten in der Bildbeschreibung mit Hilfe der Vorlage {{Retouched picture}} klar beschrieben werden. Nicht oder falsch beschriebenen Manipulationen, die dazu führen, dass das Hauptmotiv falsch dargestellt wird, sind unter keinen Umständen akzeptabel.
  • Wertunser Hauptziel ist das Hervorheben der wertvollsten Bilder von allen anderen. Bilder sollten irgendwie etwas Besonderes sein. Darum sei dir bewusst, dass:
    • nahezu jeder Sonnenuntergang ästhetisch ansprechend ist und die meisten keinen wesentlichen Unterschied aufweisen zu anderen,
    • Nachtaufnahmen hübsch sind, aber dass man normalerweise mit Aufnahmen bei Tag mehr Details zeigen kann,
    • schön nicht immer wertvoll bedeuten muss.

Auf der fachlichen Seite gibt es die Belichtung, die Komposition, die Bewegungskontrolle und die Fokustiefe zu beachten.

  • Belichtung bezieht sich auf die Verschluss-Blende-Kombination, die ein Bild mit einer Tonkurve wiedergibt. Idealerweise bildet diese Tonkurve in akzeptabler Genauigkeit Schatten- und Spitzlichtbereiche im Bild ab. Dies nennt man „Belichtungsspielraum“. Bilder können im niedrigen Teil der Tonkurve (unterer Bereich), im mittleren (mittlerer Bereich) oder hohen Teil (oberer Bereich) liegen. Digitale Kameras (oder Bilder) haben einen engeren Belichtungsspielraum als Fotofilme. Fehlende Genauigkeit im Schattenbereich ist nicht unbedingt ein Nachteil. Tatsächlich kann dies ein gewünschter Effekt sein. Eingebrannte Spitzenlichter sind dagegen ein störendes Element.
  • Komposition bezieht sich auf die Anordnung der Elemente im Bild selbst. Die „Drittel-Regel“ ist ein guter Grundsatz für die Komposition und ein Erbe der Gemäldemalerei. Die Idee ist, das Bild mit jeweils zwei horizontalen und zwei vertikalen Linien zu teilen. Dadurch wird das Bild in horizontale und vertikale Drittel geteilt. Das Motiv im Zentrum des Bildes zu platzieren, ist oft weniger interessant, als es auf einem der vier Schnittpunkte der horizontalen und vertikalen Schnittlinien zu platzieren. Der Horizont sollte eigentlich niemals in der Mitte des Bildes liegen, wo er das Bild in zwei Hälften „teilt“. Die obere oder untere horizontale Linie ist oft eine gute Wahl. Der Hauptgedanke ist, den Raum zu nutzen, um ein dynamisches Bild zu schaffen.
  • Bewegungskontrolle bezieht sich auf die Weise, wie die Bewegung im Bild abgebildet wird. Die Bewegung kann stillstehend oder verschwommen sein. Weder das eine noch das andere ist besser; es kommt auf den Zweck der Aufnahme an. Bewegung ist relativ innerhalb der Objekte des Bildes. Zum Beispiel vermittelt uns das Fotografieren eines relativ zum Hintergrund stillstehenden Rennwagens kein Gefühl für das Tempo oder die Bewegung. Also zwingt uns die Fototechnik, das Motiv stillstehend vor verschwommenem Hintergrund abzubilden, wodurch ein Gefühl für die Bewegung entsteht. Dies nennt man „Schwenken“. Andererseits kann eine Aufnahme eines im Vergleich zur Umgebung stillstehenden Basketballspielers während eines hohen Sprunges das „Unnatürliche“ der Natur dieser Pose sichtbar machen.
  • Fokustiefe (DOF – Depth Of Field) bezieht sich auf den Fokusbereich vor und hinter dem Hauptmotiv. Die Fokustiefe wird abhängig von den spezifischen Erfordernissen jedes Bildes gewählt. Große oder kleine Fokustiefe kann auf die eine oder andere Weise die Qualität der Aufnahme vergrößern oder schmälern. Geringe Fokustiefe kann die Aufmerksamkeit auf das Hauptmotiv des Bildes lenken, das Hauptmotiv erscheint dadurch von seiner Umgebung gelöst. Hohe Fokustiefe bringt Abstände zwischen Motiven zur Geltung. Objektive mit kurzer Brennweite (Weitwinkel) ergeben eine hohe Fokustiefe, umgekehrt haben Objektive mit langer Brennweite (Teleobjektive) eine flache Fokustiefe. Kleine Blendenöffnungen bringen große Fokustiefe, und umgekehrt große Blendenöffnungen bringen flache Fokustiefen.

Bei den grafischen Elementen gibt es Form, Volumen, Farbe, Struktur, Perspektive, Balance, Proportion, usw.

  • Form bezieht sich auf den Umriss des Hauptmotivs.
  • Volumen bezieht sich die dreidimensionale Qualität des Motivs. Diese wird durch Seitenlicht herausgebildet. Im Gegenteil zum allgemeinen Glauben ist Frontbeleuchtung nicht die beste Wahl. Frontbeleuchtung lässt das Motiv abflachen. Das beste Tageslicht hat man am frühen Morgen oder nachmittags.
  • Farbe ist wichtig. Übersättigte Farben sind nicht gut.
  • Struktur bezieht sich auf die Oberflächenqualität des Motivs. Diese wird durch Seitenbeleuchtung verbessert.
  • Perspektive bezieht sich auf den „Grad“ zusammen mit Linien, die in einen Fluchtpunkt innerhalb oder außerhalb des Bildes enden.
  • Balance bezieht sich auf die Anordnung der Motive innerhalb des Bildes, die entweder das scheinbar gleiche Gewicht haben oder schwerer auf einer Seite erscheinen.
  • Proportion bezieht sich auf die Größenunterschiede der Objekte im Bild. Normalerweise tendieren wir dazu, kleine Gegenstände klein im Vergleich zu anderen darzustellen. Eine gute Methode kann aber sein, kleine Objekte groß im Gegensatz zu wirklichen Größenverhältnissen abzubilden. Zum Beispiel: Eine kleine Blume überwiegt gegenüber einem großen Berg. Dies nennt man Maßstabsinversion.
Nicht alle Elemente müssen berücksichtigt werden. Einige Fotografien können anhand individueller Eigenschaften beurteilt werden. Für ein Bild kann die Farbe oder die Struktur wichtig sein, oder Farbe und Strukur, usw.
  • Symbolische Aussage oder Relevanz…. Der Meinungskrieg kann hier beginnen…. Ein schlechtes Bild von einem sehr schwierigen Motiv ist ein besseres Bild als ein gutes Bild von einem gewöhnlichen Motiv. Ein gutes Bild von einem schwierigen Motiv ist ein außergewöhnliches Foto.
Bilder können kulturell beeinflusst sein durch den Fotografen und/oder den Betrachter. Die Bedeutung des Bildes sollte vor dem kulturellen Hintergrund des Bildes beurteilt werden, nicht durch den kulturellen Hintergrund des Betrachters. Ein Bild „spricht“ zu Menschen und hat die Möglichkeit, Emotionen auszulösen, wie zum Beispiel Zärtlichkeit, Zorn, Ablehnung, Heiterkeit, Traurigkeit usw. Gute Fotografen sind nicht darauf beschränkt, gefällige Emotionen zu provozieren.

Um die Chancen für einen Erfolg deiner Nominierung zu erhöhen, lies vor der Nominierung alle Leitsätze.

Abwahlkandidaten der exzellenten Bilder aufstellen[edit]

Mit der Zeit ändern sich die Standards für die Exzellenten Bilder. Es kann entschieden werden, dass Bilder, die vorher „gut genug“ für die Exzellenten waren, es nicht mehr sind. Dies ist zum Aufstellen eines Bildes, welches deiner Meinung nach es nicht mehr verdient, exzellent zu sein. Dazu wähle mit

  • {{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep (das Bild verdient es immer noch, als exzellent zu gelten) oder mit
  • {{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist (das Bild verdient es nicht mehr, als exzellent zu gelten).

Wenn du denkst, dass ein Bild nicht mehr den Exzellenz-Kriterien entspricht, kannst du es für die Abwahl nominieren, indem du den Bildnamen in dieses Textfeld (einschließlich des Zusatzes Image:) hinter den bereits stehenden Text im Feld kopierst:


In der eben erstellten neuen Seite für die Nomination des Abwahlkandidaten solltest du einfügen:

  • Informationen über den Ursprung des Bildes (Ersteller, Uploader),
  • Einen Link zur originalen Exzellenz-Kandidatur-Seite (es erscheint unter „Links“ auf der Beschreibungsseite),
  • Deine Begründung für die Nominierung und dein Benutzername.

Danach musst du einen Link zu der erstellten Seite oben auf der Seite mit der Liste der Abwahlkandidaten manuell einfügen.

Richtlinien für Exzellenz-Kandidaten[edit]

Allgemeine Regeln[edit]

  1. Nach dem Ende des Abstimmungs-Zeitraumes wird das Ergebnis am Tag 10 nach der Nominierung festgestellt (im Zeitplan weiter unten gezeigt). Also dauert der Abstimmungs-Zeitraum 9 Tage, plus die Stunden bis zum Ende von Tag 9. Stimmen, die an Tag 10 oder danach abgeben wurden, werden nicht gezählt.
  2. Nominierungen von anonymen Mitwirkenden sind erwünscht.
  3. Mitwirken bei Diskussionen von anonymen Mitwirkenden sind erwünscht.
  4. Nur Nutzer mit einem commons-account, der mindestens 10 Tage alt ist und 50 Beiträge hat, können wählen. Ausnahme: Die eigene Nominierung kann gewählt werden, unabhängig von Alter und Beiträge.
  5. Die Nominierung zählt nicht als Stimme. Unterstützung muss explizit angegeben werden.
  6. Nominierungen können vom Einsteller jederzeit zurückgezogen werden. Dies geschieht einfach durch das Schreiben von „I withdraw my nomination“ (eng. Ich ziehe meine Nominierung zurück)
    oder durch Hinzufügen von {{withdraw|~~~~}}.
  7. Denke daran, das Ziel von Wikimedia Commons ist es, einen zentralen Speicher für freie Bilder, genutzt von allen Wikimedia-Projekten, bereitzustellen, einschließlich für mögliche zukünftige Projekte. Dies ist nicht einfach ein Speicher für Wikipedia-Bilder, deshalb sollten hier die Bilder nicht danach beurteilt werden, ob sie zu diesem Projekt passen.
  8. Bilder können vorzeitig am Tag 5 (fünfter Tag nach der Nominierung) von der Abstimmungsliste genommen werden („Regel des 5. Tages“):
    1. Wenn sie keine Unterstützung erhalten, die Einsteller nicht mitgezählt.
    2. Wenn sie 10 oder mehr Pro und kein Kontra erhalten haben.
  9. Bilder, welche durch die Vorlage {{FPX}} markiert wurden, können 48 Stunden, nachdem die Vorlage gesetzt wurde, von der Liste entfernt werden, vorausgesetzt, das Bild hat außer von den Einstellern keine positiven Stimmen (Unterstützung) erhalten.
  10. Bilder, welche durch die Vorlage {{FPD}} (FP denied) markiert wurden, können 48 Stunden, nachdem die Vorlage gesetzt wurde, von der Liste entfernt werden.
  11. Es dürfen von einem Benutzer maximal 2 Nominierungen gleichzeitig platziert werden.

Regeln zur Wahl und Abwahl[edit]

Ein Kandidat wird in die Galerie der exzellenten Bilder aufgenommen, wenn folgende Bedingungen erfüllt sind:

  1. Passende Lizenz (selbstverständlich)
  2. Mindestens 7 positive Stimmen (Pro-Stimmen)
  3. Das Verhältnis von unterstützenden zu ablehnenden Stimmen ist mindestens 2/1 (eine Zwei-Drittel-Mehrheit)
  4. Zwei verschiedene Versionen desselben Bildes können nicht beide exzellent werden, sondern nur das mit der höheren Zahl an Stimmen.

Die Abwahl-Regeln sind dieselben wie zur Wahl der exzellenten Bilder bei gleichbleibenden Abstimmungs-Zeitraum. Die Regel des 5. Tages gilt für Abwahlkandidaten, die keine Stimme für die Aberkennung des Exzellenz-Status' bis zum Tag 5 erhalten haben, außer die des Antragstellers.

Ein erfahrener Nutzer kann die Anfrage beenden. Wie man eine Anfrage beendet, siehe unter Commons:Kandidaten für exzellente Bilder/Was tun, wenn der Abstimmungszeitraum zu Ende ist.

Vor allem sei freundlich[edit]

Bitte bedenke, dass das Bild, das du beurteilst, das wohlüberlegte Werk von jemandem ist. Vermeide Phrasen wie „it looks terrible“ (eng. sieht schrecklich aus) oder „I hate it“ (eng. Ich hasse es). Wenn du dagegen Stellung nehmen musst, tu dies bitte mit Rücksichtnahme. Bedenke außerdem, dass deine Englischkenntnisse nicht die gleichen sein müssen wie die eines anderen. Wähle deine Worte sorgfältig.

Viel Spaß beim Bewerten …, und denke daran: Alle Regeln können gebrochen werden.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • I've got this lens and know how better it can be at 400mm, handheld with the stabilization. But the subject is interesting enough to strike my vote -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:56, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support a great, possibly iconic shot that just shouldn't be overly pixelpeeped... honestly, I don't know what could have been done better. Equipment and exif look perfectly fine to me. --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 07:41, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • I've seen jaguars in the Pantanal and they are not that colour. Charles (talk) 07:47, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • I disagree the sharpness is an issue. The technical quality seems fine for a 400mm telephoto. At 6MP it looks completely sharp and would print A4 just fine. Charles, what specifically is wrong with the colour? Do you think the white balance is wrong? Surely the colour will change somewhat depending on ambient light. -- Colin (talk) 09:02, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Colour is too orange - check out the colour of the eyes - no other images on Google show this colour. Charles (talk) 12:56, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • If you take away the ambient soft yellow light and make the WB totally neutral (I did that in PS), you can see that there is something orange reflected in the jaguar's eyes. Orange is a preferred color to wear among some game keepers (and hunters) since many animals are color blind and they perceive it as grey while we humans can see each other even in dense foliage. This might be something like that reflecting. --Cart (talk) 15:02, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • No it's not a reflection. 400mm lens. It's a false colour. Charles (talk) 20:55, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support, along similar lines as Martin. This reminds me of an illustration from "Where the Wild Things Are", except that it's a real wild thing and a real photo. Also reminds me of paintings by Le Douanier Rousseau. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:10, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is a picture more than a photo (and those are rare here at FPC) so composition and wow overrules technical pixel-peep-perfection. The overall light in the pic is warm, creating an ambiance, so it's normal that the jaguar gets a hint of that tone too. --Cart (talk) 11:26, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I agree that the quality of the shell photos I usually present here is better. But I please you to note, that such tiny objects can not be photographed with a normal camera. All my photos of tiny shells, see for example the Caecidae or Rissoidae photos, are made with a binocular microscope, which does never reach (and is also not comparable with) the quality of pictures of a good "normal" camera. --Llez (talk) 13:16, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
      • Ok, I strike through my vote as I've no experience in this kind of photography, and therefore I don't really feel qualified to judge the result Poco2 18:21, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
Actually I've that lens (and in that cat there are a few QIs of mine) but so far I just used it outdoors, which is really hard. I'll try to take some studio images of tiny objects with my 5DS R, I didn't try that yet. Poco2 18:04, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info For the shell photos I normally use a 60mm Tamron Macro objective, which is comparable to the Canon lens mentioned above. This objective is useful for objects (e.g. shells) down to 6 mm (of course I made this photo with the 60mm Macro). All objects, which are smaller can't be photographed picture-filling any more, for you can't go closer to the object. This means, the smaller the object, the smaller is the object on the photo and the more empty space you have (and the more quality loss you have). Therefore I use for objects smaller than 6 mm not a normal camera with macro lens but an UCMOS 14000KPA camera (4096 x 3288 px) in combination with a microscope or a binocular mircoscope respectively, which allows picture filling photos of objects from 6 mm down to 10 μm (!), an object size, which is impossible to photograph with a normal macro lens. All my photos of shells, of which the size is below 7 mm, are made with the UCMOS 14000KPA. --Llez (talk) 14:56, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Interesting. I've added two categories : Pareidolias and Condoms. If not in the description, what makes this picture special should be mentioned somewhere on the file page, I think -- Basile Morin (talk) 02:27, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
  • I question adding category:condoms, since this is not a condom. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:32, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • True, but shall we create the new category "condom-shaped objects", considering this will be the only file in this sub-cat, and will probably remain as it for quite a while ? This is not a condom, but this is not a "condom in art" neither, nor any other existing category-related file. If created, "Condoms in nature" would sound strange Face-smile.svg. Also, "Condoms" seems very general here, and all the pictures of condoms are more in this sub-Category:Condoms_by_sex (male and female), that's why I think "Condoms" is a good choice for now. But any better suggestion ? welcome -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:00, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Three buffaloes heads above water in Si Phan Don
  • Yes, these water buffaloes got their name from this particular behavior. They're often cooling themselves in the water (or in the mud), when the weather is hot -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:19, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Very strong oppose These working animals have ropes inserted through their noses and we should not be celebrating this abusive (though traditional) practice. Charles (talk) 20:58, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
  • OK, that's a point. It seems that I'm too urban to see this. Charles, did you notice that you've put 'support' in your oppose? --Basotxerri (talk) 21:19, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
  • For now this vote is more a green support than a strong oppose Face-smile.svg but to answer your comment, Charles, these domestic buffaloes are not enclosed and then free to graze and move where they want. I think such practices are more respectful than to park them in a small enclosure like in other areas in the world. But these are not wild animals, contrary to what it seems ! And concerning the rope in their noses, Wikipedia says "Bulls, especially, are powerful and sometimes unpredictable animals which, if uncontrolled, can kill or severely injure a human handler". Also I don't encourage any practice just taking this picture, I was passing by this river bank, and met these animals starring at me like big sharks, that made me shoot -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:19, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
Sometimes an innocently-taken image can reveal animal cruelty. Could I suggest you have a look at these online comments on what's behind this photo: one; two
  • Charles, are you ok? You vote with the wrong symbol, you confuse wiki-link code with external link code and you don't sign your comment. I have fixed the links for you though. Hope you are taking care of yourself, --Cart (talk) 19:55, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, I'm just committed to animal welfare and I hope we all are. When I'm cross, I make more mistakes! Sorry. Charles (talk) 21:55, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Good to hear, you had me worried there for a while. The Wiki-project needs good photos of everything. Remaining neutral when judging good photos or good text in articles can sometimes be very hard when the content goes against our own feelings on the subject. Good photos are supposed to extract emotions from us and make us think. --Cart (talk) 22:07, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
  • You are right, but this well-composed image was taken in good faith just to be an interesting shot, which it is. A close-up of the ropes piercing the animals' heads would be very acceptable if the caption described what was being depicted. To give another example, it would not be acceptable (in my view) to nominate a pretty picture of very young children sewing colourful carpets without mentioning the abusive practice of child labour. Charles (talk) 07:22, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Well then, the solution would be to add neutral information about this part of the photo, since it is possible to extract closeups from this photo (one of the reasons why FPs are in hi-res). Let's see if I can fix that so that all parties will be satisfied. My edit can of course be removed or tweaked. --Cart (talk) 09:23, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Totally agree to mention this nose rope in the description. I also added a link to the Bubalus bubalis, which is the main subject. However, I don't think this picture is the right place to debate about the nose ring, the Wikipedia article is much more appropriate to the discussion (in favor or against), and a link to the page might be enough, I think. Then I changed the description accordingly to the vision I have about this image. Thanks for the contributions -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:29, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • That's ok, but in the new edit you instead inserted a personal comment and veiwpoint ("At this bank, starring at the camera like three sharks, or like three attentive observers, they're rather funny to look at, as if they were expecting something from their group photograph.") That should be removed since it doesn't belong in a neutral image description, please do so. Let the viewer form their own oppinion about the photo. Like if this photo was to be used in an article about nose ropes, that's not the sort of comment you'd want accompanying the picture. --Cart (talk) 12:47, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, I took the liberty to write it's funny because I'm not the only one to find so, reading the others. And concerning your idea about nose ropes, reading the Wikipedia page, there is not (yet) people against -- Basile Morin (talk) 14:07, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Just because there are at least two people finding something funny, does not mean it is so for everyone. I for one don't find this funny at all. But it's a good picture. Image descriptions should be neutral, that's how encyclopedic material works. If you don't like to have other people's values in an image text, you should not impose your values either. --Cart (talk) 14:54, 16 April 2018 (UTC)~
  • No problem, I'm fine with the description now -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:01, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Basile, it would be best to add the new descriptions in French, too, when you have the chance. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 16:21, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
