The lack of clear categorization seems unavoidable, and I have every plan to vote for this, regardless, but a point for clarification: Is the pink mite or whatever from the Cunaxidae family? Shouldn't that category be included at the bottom of the file page? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:52, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Yes; both the experts commented in that Facebook link (Michael Geiser and Jayaram Devang) are subject experts of Coleoptera and Trombidiformes respectively. It is difficult to find the ID for a lower level, especially for a female or larva of such a small subjects. I added Category:Cunaxidae too as four people already confirmed that ID.

View of Mason Street, San Francisco
  • ✓ Done Category fixed. -- KennyOMG (talk) 14:23, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I doubt my view will be popular here, but I like the shade and find the shade in the foreground and light in the middleground and background refreshing, because the shadow isn't black and I still see the various colors of the houses. I may have a slight bias, because I like San Francisco and this kind of scene, including the shadows, is relaxing to me as a scene that accurately represents San Francisco at a non-foggy time or place. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:58, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The more I look at it, the more I like the composition. Normally you'd end up with an unbalanced image in pointing your camera at a scene in this way, but the taller buildings on the left actually make it quite nicely balanced. And we could argue about the contrast being overdone but I think it's tasteful as it is. But @KennyOMG: please add a category. -- Thennicke (talk) 12:47, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment No color-space metadata and no embedded color profile. Would like hear more opinions on how to consider this types of old works prior to vote. Jee 15:55, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Nothing really makes this stand out from other San Francisco cityscapes, and the color looks a little off to me. Daniel Case (talk) 18:25, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I like the idea that someone has attempted to take a panoramic image of San Francisco from one of its hills, but this shot is definitely not exceptional enough out of what can be really done. The composition is too busy and the captured buildings are uninteresting except for the houses on the right side depicting the city's traditional and recognisable architectural style. For example, one can get to Telegraph Hill for a nice shot of the Transamerica Pyramid with its surrounding buildings. From the description, I suppose the idea was to depict Mason Street, which could have been captured in a variety of better ways (e.g. the intersection between Mason Street and Washington Street with the Cable Car Museum in the corner), but it seems like there is not much of it. I also tend to agree that the sky is a bit blown, especially with the clouds above the top of the buildings on the right side.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 21:09, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Thank you for the comment, @Kiril Simeonovski:, however I think there's some misunderstanding here. Sometimes a picture is just a picture with whatever happens to be in on, and not the be-all and end-all of a given subject. This was never meant to be the definitive visual representation of SF, nor of Mason St. It just happened to be taken in SF/on Mason St, therefore the name. Obv if I wanted to take a pic of the TransAm Pyramid or something else I would have. Similarly the northern part of Mason is a completely different beast. As for what makes SF SF: I think if you take away the immediately recognizable landmarks (Pyramid, Bridge, Cable car) then it's the hills, the houses, the Bay and the fog. This pic actually covers 3 of those 4. Having said that I always liked this because I considered it a pretty pic, nothing else. ;) As for the sky being blown, I'm not a fan of compressing the whole dynamics into the midtones, you can see it on my other photos too. (eta: panorama it is not, 35mm on full frame with top&bottom cropped) -- KennyOMG (talk) 04:28, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
  • @KennyOMG: With all due respect, you were definitely trying to capture an interesting view of the city; unfortunately, it did not end into something that wows me enough for an FP. I don't intend to see the things mentioned in my previous comment in order to support an image from San Francisco, but they are just a sort of things that could make a featurable composition in my humble opinion.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 06:50, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

    I noticed that the facade looked weird as well, and was in fact about to weak oppose over that. But I downloaded the file and found that the detail was there. And not just that the values weren't 255, which can be faked by dragging the highlights slider to recover data that's not even there, but actual detail which I revealed by dropping exposure even further. But the exposure definitely could have been better; I would have done 15 stops (equivalent of 1/500s at f/8 at ISO 100) rather than the 14⅓ used here. -- King of ♠ 03:13, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Approximately 200 bird species are found here at different times of the year. About 15-20 pairs of the Common tern breed here. When waiting for them to get food for the offspring, I had to make a calculation: Every bird goes hunting about every 30 mins. It'll be successful about every fifth swoop. My camera will be in the right position and fully focused on the bird about every 20th time (as they are so superfast!). Fully focused doesn't necessarily mean the bird has caught something.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - I fixed the category: It's Columba livia, the Latin name for the rock dove; the family Columbidae is too wide a category. And I oppose because although you have a good motif, I find this picture inferior to FP pigeon portraits such as File:Pigeon portrait 4861.jpg, which is a head-and-neck shot, File:Rock Pigeon Columba livia.jpg and File:Fonte Gaia - she wolf detail.jpg, which focuses on the Lupa Senese on the Fonte Gaia as much as on the pigeon. In this photo, the Sphinx is a nice background element but not the subject; it's merely what the pigeon is sitting on. The pigeon is pretty, but the parts of him (?) we see are mostly in shadow and come out as noisy/unsharp at full size. Granted, full size is a lot bigger in your photo than in the other ones I'm comparing it to. But in general, we like our bird portraits very clear at FPC. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:59, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Old Jewish Cemetery, Prague
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info During the more than three centuries in which it was in active use, the cemetery continually struggled with the lack of space. Piety and respect for the deceased ancestors does not allow the Jews to abolish old graves. For this reason, twelve layers of graves now exist, giving the cemetery the shape of a flat hill. As new levels were added it was necessary either to lay over the gravestones associated with the older (and lower) graves to protect them, or else to elevate the stones to the new, higher surface. --Uoaei1 (talk) 10:15, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Natural/Italy
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Lake Bracciano (Italian: Lago di Bracciano) is a lake of volcanic origin in the Italian region of Lazio, 32 km (20 mi) northwest of Rome. It is the second largest lake in the region (second only to Lake Bolsena) and one of the major lakes of Italy. It has a circular perimeter of approximately 32 km (20 mi). Its inflow is from precipitation runoff and percolation, and from underground springs, and its outflow is the Arrone.The lake owes its origin to intense volcanic activity from 600,000 to 40,000 years before present, which created many small volcanoes in the Sabatino territory. The main magma chamber was situated under the present lake of Bracciano. Its collapse created the caldera now occupied by the lake, which is a crater lake. Some small craters are still recognisable around the lake and in the immediate vicinity.The lake is an important tourist attraction situated near Rome. As it serves as a drinking water reservoir for the city of Rome it has been under control since 1986 in order to avoid pollution of its waters. The use of motorboats is strictly forbidden (exceptions being made for a few professional fisherman and the authorities), and a centralised sewer system has been built for all the bordering towns in order to avoid any spoiling of the water quality. This makes Bracciano one of the cleanest lakes of Italy. The absence of motorized navigation (apart from police boats) favours sailing, canoeing and swimming.In the last few years the lake and its surroundings have been brought under further protection by the creation of a regional park, the Parco Regionale del complesso lacuale di Bracciano Martignano.Under Pope Paul V, water was brought from Lake Bracciano to the Trastevere region of Rome and (via the Ponte Sisto) to the Rione of Regola.

The midnight sun during polar day near the lake Ozhogino, the Sakha Republic, Russia
  • This also could have been categorized under "Natural phenomena". Here's the description: "The midnight sun during polar day near the lake Ozhogino, the Sakha Republic, Russia". -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:11, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Виктор Габышев, in case you are using Google Translate, "CAs" are "chromatic aberrations". As sunlight has many components, I'm not recognizing chromatic aberrations in the rays of sunlight on the ice, but there are many regulars here who have a much keener eye for chromatic aberration than I do. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:56, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
+1 to that. The CA is the purple/green kind, visible on the ice fragments near the bottom (Wow, I don't remember Ivvavik being this wintry-looking at the same latitude and almost the same time of year a year earlier! Interesting. Bonus points for shooting the midnight sun on the summer solstice (or almost it)). Daniel Case (talk) 22:32, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Edited version
Thanks for doing the edits. Your version looks more normal, but I'm wondering if it's really impossible for midnight sun to sometimes have a purple tint to it. If Виктор Габышев would like to substitute your version, he can, but we haven't heard from him in this thread. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:21, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

I remember your argument the "the world is colorfull", however, in this case IMHO the important is the forms and add color could generate only distraction in the composition, the forms of the windows and the door result in a geometric paralelism. I respect your opinion --The Photographer 11:41, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes, you are right and thanks for you respect for my opinion. Composition is "only" the half of an image, the colors are always important for me. A BW image is only a halt true. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 12:06, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The romanesque nave of the Brunswick Cathedral was built between 1173 and 1226. After many additions over the centuries, the original paintings from the middle of the 13th century were rediscovered in 1845. As the conservators in these days felt free to complete missing parts in a historism way, not all the paintings are in their original status. A more detailed description you will find at Braunschweiger Dom Saecco-Malereien (germ.).
Further famous artefacts in this cathedral are a Seven-armed Candelabrum of 4,80m and the Imervard Cross, both from the second half of the 12th century.
The pictured painting in the crossing shows the celestial Jerusalem.
Nowadays there are intentions to place a second organ in the crossing. If this should happen, the days of seeing the full paintings of crossing and transept will be gone ... --PtrQs (talk) 23:36, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
