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 1,93 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.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Agree with Martin Falbisoner. Should be a little brighter and there is some vignetting, too. --Code (talk) 07:35, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It's striking in its own way. I kind of like it, but - although not a strict criterion here - I think I'd like a plausible use on one of the Wikimedia projects (Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikiversity, etc) to seal the deal. Say, use of monochrome in photography? Adam Cuerden (talk) 08:32, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
    • I don't think "use on Wikimedia project" is a criterion at all, never mind strict. And I feel that unless an image is take with the express purpose of illustrating a photographic technique, then claiming such as its "educational value" is clutching at straws. The image certainly can be used on an educational project (Wikimedia or otherwise) but such usage is much wider than simply using a picture to illustrate something. An image like this may be far more useful to express a mood. A low-colour photograph of calm water is a common theme (I am reminded of my own File:Old Pier, Salen, Isle of Mull.jpg). I'm not sure the composition here is great enough to be FP, but undecided about whether to oppose. -- Colin (talk) 09:03, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
      • Minimalism revisited. I more or less like the photo, even though it consists "only" of a tiny object in a vast sea of greyness. Concerning the educational value that it certainly has, I agree with Colin. --Tremonist (talk) 12:09, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
        • @Colin, Tremonist: Well, there's suggestions for changing it above, but, the thing is, before we can change what's basically an artistic work, I think we need to decide what it's meant to illustrate and show. Would brightening it and losing the vignetting help - or would that remove the artistry and make it worthless. Commons has two prongs to its scope: Education and supporting Wikimedia projects, extant and future. We're having trouble evaluating this as we haven't quite pinned down criteria by which to evaluate it, so - while actual usage is unnecessary, coming up with some plausible uses will give us some sort of criteria to evaluate it by. Adam Cuerden (talk) 12:25, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
          • Thank you for your comment, Adam. I think making changes of any kind isn't really helpful here, because it's the mood that's of supreme importance, of which the greyness is an essential aspect. For instance, taking a photo under really bad weather conditions, would it appear any more realistic or impressive or educational, if it were brightened and thus the original effect expressed lessened? About a usage for an artistic photo of this kind we really should think carefully, I agree. Has anybody ideas yet? --Tremonist (talk) 12:50, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting info.svg Info GoMinU, es freut mich, dass du an diesem Foto Gefallen gefunden und es ehrt mich, dass du dieses hier nominiert hast. Auch ich finde das Foto durchaus gelungen und auszeichnungswürdig, da die Maschine, die ich während des Arbeitseinsatzes (also in Bewegung) fotografiert habe, in für mich bestmöglicher Qualität abgebildet habe. Die dunklen Bereiche sind gut durchgezeichnet und alle Details der Maschine sind gut zu erkennen. Ich habe mir aber seit geraumer Zeit abgewöhnt, meine Bilder auf den Jahrmärkten QI oder FP zur allgemeinen Belustigung zur Schau zu stellen, da es manchen Benutzern Freude bereitet, mit "sachkundigen" Bemerkungen den Fotografen die Freude am Fotografieren zu verderben. Abgesehen davon, dass ich im Gegensatz zu Daniel Case keinen CA in der Oberleitung sehe, frage ich mich, ob sowas bei einem Foto, das die Maschine zeigen soll, von Bedeutung ist? Ähnliches gilt für die von XRay angemerkte "Überbelichtung". Auch hier frage ich mich, ob der höchst unwichtige Hintergrund, der sich nicht vermeiden lässt, oder die Maschine von Bedeutung ist. Vermutlich hätte man mit entsprechenden Bildbearbeitungsprogrammen und längerer Spielerei den Hintergrund etwas besser hinbekommen, frage mich jedoch ob das noch etwas mit dem eigentlichen Objekt (die Maschine), dem Fotografieren und der Leistung des Fotografen etwas zu tun hat? Daher, Hubertl, was macht dich so sicher, dass es "far away beeing FP" ist? Die Kandidatur kann daher gerne beendet werden. Die Kritiker können ja gerne bei google nach besseren Fotos dieses Spezialfahrzeugs mit aufgesetzter Schraubmaschine suchen... Schöne Grüße --Steindy (talk) 23:13, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Die Oberleitung ist lila. Ich bezweifle sehr, es ist, dass Farben in der Realität Face-smile.svg. Daniel Case (talk) 00:57, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
From the composition and the quality of the object itself it is a valuable picture. Therefore QI and VI. But not the picture as a whole. But this is the requirement for FP. In my opinion - beside some repairable faults - it does not meet these requirements at all. I never disrepected your work, Steindy, and you know it! --Hubertl 08:10, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, far away beeing FP. Did you ask Steindy before? --Hubertl 11:24, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Hubertl. QI for sure, very good pic of a hi-lo, but compositionally it's nothing special and the CA on the overhead lines in the background is not a good thing. Daniel Case (talk) 17:17, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

    • Could this be another revenge vote though? They always seem to come immediately after someone opposes one of yours. You say it's too dark, but please consider that it's actually a dark interior. Look at the colour of the wooden confession boxes. Compare them to the confession boxes in your recent nomination. Yours are significantly darker and the wood looks quite similar to me. I think you need to consider that not every church is a whitewashed baroque church like the ones you usually photograph in Rome. Some of them are dark, and should be shown as dark. Just my opinion anyway. Diliff (talk) 21:51, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
You're boring, another vote for revenge (?). where are the white churches?. Besides, this have very light compared to the churches of Rome (see that big window). Accept Negative Ratings. Besides the church do not like, it is distorted and dark.--LivioAndronico (talk) 22:35, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

    • It's actually quite a big church. This is the view from about half way down the nave. This is the view from near the rear. It seems to be that you can't please everyone. I thought the view from this position showed the altar and mural in enough detail to be interesting, but still wide enough to show the other features of the church, but Jebulon thinks it should have been tighter and closer, Uoaei1 thinks it's too tight at the top (it's very wide angle already, any more and I'd start getting complaints that there is too much perspective distortion), and you seem to imply you'd prefer to see it from further back? Can't please everyone. ;-) Diliff (talk) 21:51, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry if you thought I didn't like it ... can't say I blame you for feeling a bit defensive after the drama above. All I meant was that, since it looked from the image like it wasn't a very big church (there was no way to know you were only standing halfway back), the failings other people were complaining about were not an issue for me. I have no problem with where you took the image from. Daniel Case (talk) 16:49, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

  • I've played with it, to try to get something closer to File:Grapsus grapsus Galapagos Islands.jpg. Here it is : [1]. It doesn't have the "overdone clarity signature", but not sure it looks so good. My hypothesis is that lighting was harsh (shadow), so you had to add contrast somehow. But I think you needn't go that far. Wonder what other reviewers think about that (if they see me, but I'm not gonna ping everyone ;) ). Anyhow, hope you can sort this out. I don't support now because of this, but really I'm wowed (and again you are very inspired lately).- Benh (talk) 20:38, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

  • We have hundreds of similar images of cameras on white backgrounds and we even have some very good images of thiy camery type in Category:Leica AF-C1, so why should this one be featured? 1) Technical quality is superb. 2) The camera is so clean, it almost looks like it came right out of its box. 3) The lighting setup works very well for me. 4) The reflection and that little bit of shadow on the surface: It's not just hovering around in empty space. 5) Apart from having the famous red dot on it (probably mostly for marketing reasons as it's actually a modified Minolta AF-Tele Super), the camera itself doesn't really look too sexy to me. From afar it looks like how a typical 35mm point-and-shoot used to look a few decades ago, but upon closer investigation it's starting to look interesting. Can't really put my finger on it though, maybe it's the rippled surface … All in all, the "wow" doesn't really jump in your face, but I think it's still worth Symbol support vote.svg supporting. --El Grafo (talk) 08:25, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

It would be instructive to provide some background information regarding the shooting technique, light setup and especially the focus stacking process (software, number of images, ...).

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I rarely (over)process my photos, moreover, I mainly shot in jpeg. Only processing of this one is brightness to -6, contrast to +3 and crop (both out of 100). I wouldn't say that's some serious processing, which was done in Olympuis Viewer. So let know where or what is problem (overprocessed). --Mile (talk) 06:46, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
    • If you don't use raw file, I think the camera is automatically processing the photo (jpeg). I'm setting my camera RAW+JPG, so sometimes JPG has been over-processed (oversharpened, too much NR, etc). For instance, the exif says "Sharpness:Normal" , I think that Normal doesn't mean nothing, that means sharpen filter applied, Regards. --Laitche (talk) 13:18, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't like it. Technicaly very good, sharpness excellent, no noise, OK. But I find the work (not the photograph) not interesting, more a 19th century kitchy "painting on glass" portrait than a real "stained glass window" we have from the Middle Ages. I don't know who is that saint (a martyr (see the palm) like Saint Martin maybe ?), there is a red link to the author in the category, the crop below is frustrating, even if this part of the glass is just banal, a part of the "frieze" is broken and replaced by a modern glass... IMO it is just an average subject, not extraordinary. Well, no wow, I'm sorry.--Jebulon (talk) 14:36, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
    • @Jebulon: Thank you for your high grade analyses about that image. You are an excellent profiler. Yes, the glass window originates from the years 1904-1906, when the church was set up. No available documents that might give a hint to the saint (?) at the glass. I am desolate about that missing information as well as the mended part. The frustratiing crop below is due to a grill which partially covers the banal lower part. I nominated the image due to the colors, which are IMHO able to catch the eye. --Johann Jaritz (talk) Johann Jaritz 03:10, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
      • @Johann Jaritz:, I guess it is not Saint Martin of Tours, who died peacefuly. As we have a palm, it is a martyr, who was probably beheaded (the sword).--Jebulon (talk) 08:28, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

        • @Moroder: Thanks for your comments, Wolfgang. The windows were crafted by "Tiroler Glasmalerei - Innsbruck", a more than 140 years old traditional enterprise, that is still designing and crafting windows for churches for foreign and home dioceses. The proportions of the windows are demonstrated by this complete example:

San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane (Rome) - Intern
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Interiors/Religious buildings
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The church of San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane (Saint Charles at the Four Fountains), also called San Carlino, is a Roman Catholic church in Rome, Italy. The church was designed by the architect Francesco Borromini and it was his first independent commission. It is an iconic masterpiece of Baroque architecture, built as part of a complex of monastic buildings on the Quirinal Hill for the Spanish Trinitarians, an order dedicated to the freeing of Christian slaves. He received the commission in 1634, under the patronage of Cardinal Francesco Barberini, whose palace was across the road. However, this financial backing did not last and subsequently the building project suffered various financial difficulties. All by -- LivioAndronico (talk) 21:23, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

  • That's the beauty of this church and a challenge to Borromini. The space was small and no one wanted to build a church (given the small space available) and he accept and exploit the height and not the depth (like the others church of the moment). In this way the people were pushed to look to the other masterpiece that is the dome. Then I do not have a wide angle and or I cut the floor and took the columns (with later: "Why did you cut the floor?"). Greetings.--LivioAndronico (talk) 20:01, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Hmm. My question would then be "why don't you get a wide angle lens?" or "Why don't you try stitching?" :-) Diliff (talk) 20:17, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
  • I tried, but in this case I would take the bottom of the dome and preferred to cut the columns and not the beautiful dome. Regards. --LivioAndronico (talk) 20:28, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
  • OK, that's your choice, but I don't see a problem with including a partially cropped dome - nobody expects to see a complete dome when looking horizontally straight down the nave, but it's usually better to see at least some of the ceiling. Anyway, the cropped columns is only one half of the issue. The other half is that you don't have enough foreground (IMO). Diliff (talk) 21:05, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg weak oppose I've googled a bit and I agree with Diliff that a wider view would definitely be nicer.

    • No article on razor cartridges on the English Wikipedia yet, but it would almost certainly pass an English Wikipedia FPC if there were. As for the "wow", I was inspired to nominate this after looking at Commons:Featured pictures/Objects, which has a number of images of the same technical quality (though generally with much larger subjects). — Chris Woodrich (talk) 09:58, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
      • The "wow" requirement certainly can be a problem for common objects like this. When the subject itself has little or no wow, a wow-effect can still be achieved by making a photograph of it that is outstanding in some other kind of way. Might be an enormously high resolution/magnification, creative lighting, an unusual perspective, something that makes it stand out from the masses. There can be a very thin line between "just very good" and "featureable" for sure – and the decision on which side of the line a nomination falls on is certainly a personal, subjective one (see also my comment on this nomination). No doubt that this is a high quality image. But we already have QI, so FP needs something more than just that. FWIW, I still think this might be the best image of this type of cartridge we have, so I've taken the liberty of nominating it at VI as well. --El Grafo (talk) 10:05, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Stockholm was built for the Swedish postal service in 1931 and used 1931-1958 as mail-steamer running betweeen the city of Kalmar and the island of Öland in the time when there was no bridge to Öland. She was in traffic between Umeå in Sweden and Vaasa in Finland from 1958 to 1967 when the Finish navy bought her and converted her into a command ship and the ship become later a floating restaurant. The current owners bought the ship in 1998 and conducted a very extensive renovation. Since year 2000 in service in Stockholm archipelago.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support beautiful composition. You'll have to let know when you hunt churches around Torcy. Must see you in action (You might not want to give your tricks away though ;) ).- Benh (talk) 18:27, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
    • I think you know most of my tricks anyway! They're no secrets. It would be nice to finally meet you though. Is that your home town? Interesting to read about the demographics. I know you're not Vietnamese - Laotian, right? I haven't spent a lot of time outside of Paris except in Picardy where my wife's family is from, but there's so much more of the country to see, so I'd be happy to make a trip in that direction. I'll let you know. Diliff (talk) 20:14, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Another boring church interior picture with overexposed top and mesh of objects in center. --Kikos (talk) 08:36, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
    • What is a 'mesh of objects in center'? It's an altar, that's just how they look. If you find church interiors boring, maybe it's best to abstain from voting on them. I know it's hard to separate personal interests from your votes, but we should try not to let our prejudices affect us. This is one of the first gothic churches in the world (actually it's the third oldest, after St Denis Basilica and Noyon Cathedral), so you might find it boring but it's extremely important in Gothic architecture. As for the window, it's overexposed because it's extremely bright compared to the rest of the church, and there is a flare of light around it. It's an HDR image, but there's only so much you can do to rescue such bright highlights without making it look very unrealistic. Would you prefer unrealistic or would you prefer overexposed? Sometimes they're your only options. Diliff (talk) 10:14, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
    • Finding church interiors boring is no valid reason for an oppose. We're looking for high quality pictures with high educational value. There's no doubt that this picture has both. Diliff is right: If you don't like churches you should abstain from voting. --Code (talk) 15:53, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
      • Thank You both for a educational response! Why boring? Because I can't see altar (low viewpoint), I can't see and evaluate church interior (too many flags), I can't see ceremony (no people). In case if I dont like picture so much, I can't abstain, sorry. --Kikos (talk) 18:17, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
        • But it only takes common sense to realize it's much more difficult to get a higher point of view (I don't think Diliff caries scaffoldings with him ;) ), that the sheet must be there for some reason (I don't know but I'm not christian) and that no people are also not distraction (which is good in architecture photography). You may not like it, but it's not a fault, and this is among the very best we have in stock... If I don't like insects, I won't oppose all macro shots... but yes, your decision. - Benh (talk) 19:56, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
          • Exactly, this isn't a low viewpoint, it's an normal view of the altar from normal head height. It is what a visitor would typically see, and it's simply not intended to be viewed from above. Yes, the cloths/flags are there for a reason (but I don't know exactly why either). It might simply be for decoration, but I've seen it in many other churches, particularly in Lithuania. Diliff (talk) 21:07, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
