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.

Weitere Vorlagen gibt es hier.

Bitte füge ein paar Worte an, warum dir das Bild gefällt oder nicht gefällt, insbesondere wenn du dagegen stimmst. Bitte denke auch daran, zu unterschreiben (~~~~). Anonyme Stimmen sind nicht zugelassen.

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.

Light floods in from windows in the lower dome that are hidden by the oval opening and from windows in the side of the lantern. In a hierarchical structuring of light, the illuminated lantern with its symbol of the Holy Trinity is the most brightly lit, the coffering of the dome is thrown into sharp and deep relief and light gradually filters downwards to the darker lower body of the church.All by LivioAndronico (talk) 11:49, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

    • Thank you. As an explanation for the unsharpness: It's not possible to get a sharp tower, for two reasons. First, the aircraft is moving, so what you see in the background is motion blur. It could be reduced slightly with ISO/aperture, but it won't disappear completely. Second, the tower is 2.6 km away while the aircraft is only 600 m away. That is simply too much air in-between for good sharpness. If you have ever taken a photo over several kilometeres with a long focal length lens, you know that the heat differences, especially directly above the ground, will completely mess up the sharpness. So the buildings can only work as the backdrop for context, not as the subject itself. Which is why I didn't even try to eliminate motion blur. — Julian H. 07:42, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info First edition vocal score, and a rather attractive illustration compared to some. The delicacy of the lithograph shows up rather strongly in the attractive background; there is a lot of gradient of tone here, which - as each gradient in tone requires the stone have another preparation with wax and wash of acid - indicates a lot of care put into it. Compare, for example, the first edition Rigoletto, which, while still pretty good, has basically about three or four shades of grey at its disposal, at an estimate; this clearly has far more.

Notre Dame de France Church
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Interiors/Religious buildings
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Diliff - uploaded by Diliff - nominated by Diliff. This is an interesting church in London for a few reasons. Known originally as Burford's Panorama, it was originally built in the early 1800s as a local tourist attraction using cast iron construction. It was converted into a church by the Marist Fathers in the mid 1800s to support the growing French community in London. In the Second World War, it was heavily damaged and was repaired and redecorated in the 1950s by eminent French artists, hence the modernist interior design. -- Diliff (talk) 09:00, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

  • As I explained below, Benh is right. In the context he used it, one doesn't mean the number one, it means people. Benh's use of the word 'only' before it does make it extra confusing and I think replacing 'only' with 'however' would be clearer, but he has used it correctly and a native English speaker would (probably) recognise the context properly. It's no surprise that the two people arguing against it are not native speakers of English. Why can't you just trust us that you misunderstood? Diliff (talk) 09:06, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
  • "one" means "any person"? Where? In our country probably...anyway you wrote :"Only one" but in your country what does it means? --Σπάρτακος (talk) 22:59, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
  • It isn't really country-specific. Benh is right, it does mean "any person" in that context, generally and can easily be substituted for "you" (which in that context doesn't mean you specifically, it means people in general) and mean the same thing. See here, specifically definitions 19 to 21. I can see how it's confusing for non-native English speakers though. As you can see, the word has a lot of different definitions in different contexts.

    • Cmon, the ball is never in focus in this kind of tennis photography. We're talking about sports photography taken at 350mm focal length and a relatively wide aperture to get a fast shutter speed. You don't get unlimited depth of field. According to a depth of field calculator, there is about 20cm DoF in total. The ball cannot be in focus at the same time as the player unless they're in the middle of hitting it. Framing is perhaps a legitimate point, but I chose it to be tight to get an action portrait. It's not supposed to be a full body photo. I've uploaded a new image with a slightly wider framing anyway.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The wildcat protects itself with two strategies: camouflage her body and defending their territory. The camouflage is done by brown color and vertical stripes on their fur and her face and by hiding behind plants and shrubs. To defend their territory, the wildcat is guarding the lowest access to their territory. In their area there is a big tree. The fur of the wildcat has the same color and the same pattern as the bark of the tree. The wildcat lives on that tree, there it is protected through the camouflage of the coat. Daniel and Livio, do you understand now why the camouflage of the wildcat must be shown by their hiding behind plants in the picture? --Michael Gäbler (talk) 13:40, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

First, there's a lot more green than brown in the image. And as a result I can still see the cat very easily. If the point of the image is to depict how the cat's coloring helps it conceal itself, it's not communicating that very well. And second, if that's the point of the image, then you're arguing more for it as a valued image, not an FP, since depicting its ability to camouflage itself and taking a picture with a level of "wow" adequate to FP standards here seem to be mutually exclusive if this is the best way of doing the former.

✓ Done There was a slight pincushion distortion which is now corrected. For the verticals: I used the cables of the lamps and I was assuming homogenous gravity in the church. For the resolution: As usual I uploaded the full resolution of my camera. More is not available and I think, that ISO 125 is good enough for the situation. I shot on available light and refused the offer of Sister Dorothea to switch on the lights.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Let me take the opportunity to add some information: The church is part of the augustinian monastery in Essen. The stained glass windows show artwork of Johan Thorn Prikker which is considered to be one of the most important glass artists of 20th century. Influenced by impressionism, he pushed stained glass art from figural to ornamental. The windows in the monastery are his last work. From him is the word "Wie herrlich muss es sein, mit der Sonne selbst malen zu können" (How splendid it must be, to paint with the sun herself). Prikker had a deadly desease and it is believed, that the windows, made partly under horrible pains, depict "the antagonism of powers, the path from darkness and death to light and ressurection. The effects of the light is capturing the whole room into this movement; symbol of the big, eternal community of all released people in god." --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 04:41, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Weak oppose I liked the composition and looked at the image. Thought to myself "Nice image, but should have been shot from a tripod to avoid the high ISO". Then I looked at the exif and was in for a shock. It's a bit stunning how poor even the best Canons are at shadow recovery, but to mitigate this, HDR should have been used (the windows are also blown). The image has a lot of illustrative value for articles, but with respect to the quality, I do not think that it can really be among the best church interiors we have. I realize that perhaps I'm being a bit harsh, but the great view could be executed much better imho. --DXR (talk) 08:47, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting info.svg Info It was shot from tripod with mirror lock and remote control. Sure, HDR might have ended up in a better result, but I am not the big friend of HDR, that's why you rarely find a HDR among my photos. I am not sure, if everyone can imagine the light situation: It is a dim light in the church and all light is filtered through coloured glas. The very intense coloured light is also outshining the frames of the windows. It looks like CA, but it is not. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 10:17, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Well, I understand that the term HDR has been spoiled for many by those who use it to make tasteless/creative (pick your flavor) unrealistic adjustments that render images useless for wiki. But the logic behind the concept is sound and shadow noise and blown windows can be easily reduced or avoided using it, and with sensible processing the results won't look fake or bad. This is especially valid for cameras with sub-par dynamic range at low ISOs. I understand people who dislike HDR, but inside the church, it very often becomes an essential tool. --DXR (talk) 10:50, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I do not condemn HDR in general but sometimes, I am a little bit oldschool and in my opinion, it is often possible to get a reasonable result with a single shot. Well, there are prospects for another shooting in the monastery during midday sun (the colours are different then) and I will remember to try a HDR from same position. --CEphoto, Uwe Aranas (talk) 10:59, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I think HDR is usually required to get stained-glass in range. Here it could be better, it isn't too bad IMO, and I've seen too many HDR stained glass where the "Ow! Ow! My eyes hurt" bright white is rendered merely paper white. -- Colin (talk) 12:19, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I agree, the term 'HDR' is too often associated with really bad over-processed tone mapping that makes everything look muddy and weird, but it doesn't have to be that way - the result depends entirely on how strongly it is applied, the quality of the source image and what software is used to do it. To simply associate HDR so negatively is a bit like saying that a terrible photo taken with an expensive top of the line camera must mean the camera is terrible. And although the technical quality of this image is 'okay', it could have been much better. The noise levels of the shadows could have been as you would normally expect of ISO 100. Consider this recent image of mine. The exterior light wasn't as strong, but the interior was much darker so the contrast between highlights and shadows is likely to be similar. It was shot at ISO 320 which would normally result in quite a lot of shadow noise, particularly if pushed a lot. But because I used HDR with a 'slightly overexposed for shadows' bracket shot, I was able to get an image without any noise in any of the shadow areas. That simply wouldn't be possible with a single image, particularly with the low dynamic range of the Canon sensors. Diliff (talk) 18:38, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support (weak) While I agree with DXR that it could be much better, I don't find the noise is that dramatic, and it doesn't look like to come from shadow recovery (doing so on Canons usually gives you non aesthetic banding. See full size image). From a technical point of view, it's certainly at least as good -I'd say better- as many church interior which have been recently promoted and the lighting is just too good to miss. - Benh (talk) 10:02, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Yes, the colors are "real" (by that I mean that these are the colors that the camera captured), in post-production I only changed white balance and exposure controls, I did not use the individual color bars. I sharpened it a bit, but it is still an ISO 800 picture on a low-end DSLR, I wished I had a tripod then, but my purpose of being there was joining the fun, not taking pictures :) --Xicotencatl (talk) 17:27, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

In this case, portion in focus is way to small to represent this flower. I am sure it can be done much better.

  • Just curious, why is the quality only so-so? It's a very expensive 36 megapixel camera and lens on a tripod. To my eyes it looks very sharp without noise. The only technical defect I see is that the trees, swaying in the wind, get a bit blurred -- a trade off between car trails and noiseless ISO 100 versus sharp trees. And actually I did some post processing (it's an HDR photo from three exposures so that the roofs of the buildings aren't totally black and so that the lights aren't blown out), but I'm glad people don't notice it. Thanks! dllu (t,c) 21:59, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The pattern on the plate does take the eye away from the fish, but then it is a sort of swimming sea pattern, which is an interesting combination. So I think it works. -- Colin (talk) 11:03, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Manages to be a good, attractive, but reasonably accurate view of it (unless the people making it squash it, and you get some horrible mess of food) Think the patties might be moved forwards slightly, but otherwise they'd be hidden, so I can live with that. Likewise, the pickled cucumber slices are probably a lot more visible than they'd normally be, but, again, that's acceptable enough. A definite winner. Adam Cuerden (talk) 06:54, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

But I wish we have more studio like photographs, with the background being an actual one, so we keep the shadow, instead of having to remove it. Would also be pretty interesting to have it side by side with the same subject from the McDo marketing division ;) - Benh (talk) 19:17, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
