  • Peulle, yes, they are a bit fuzzy, that's what happens when you photograph something while it's snowing. Without the snow you wouldn't get the glow, which is the whole point of the photo. :) The snow was moving away from the shore I stood on, so the jetty is relatively clear. If I took the photo when I could get everything in the distance sharp, there would be no glow in the sky. Unfortunately you can't have both glow and sharp distant features. (The refinery on a clear night = no glow.) --cart-Talk 19:07, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

    Well, ok, Basile, I prefered this view, in a front view you can hardly appreciate the real form of the tower. Regarding the crop, I've adjusted it a bit, but as the building is facing to the left, I believe that it is normal to expect a bit more of space in that direction, and it shouldn't be totally centered, either. --Poco2 16:40, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Isabella Lövin signing climate law referral
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Historical#1990- Now
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Schyffel - uploaded by Axel Pettersson (WMSE) - nominated by W.carter
    The now famous photo where Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lövin signs a climate law referral, witnessed by two State Secretaries and members of her staff. With only women (including one who is visibly pregnant) it is a very non-typical government photo. It is also obvious that the minister is directing her attention to the camera and whoever is watching the photo. It became noticed around the world since it was published only days after the publication of a photo in which Donald Trump signed an executive anti-abortion order (the Mexico City Policy) surrounded by men. Small nice fact: Contrary to most photographers working with government-related material, this photographer is also a Commoner and Wikipedian (former board member of Wikimedia Sweden). -- cart-Talk 14:06, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Am I seeing tilt or perspective distortion? Charles (talk) 10:13, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Absolutely correct perspective was probably not what was most important for the photographer when creating this photo. Any perspective correction would completely ruin the comopsition and it's not important to do such in a photo like this. It is better to have the people depicted in a good way than worry about the proportions of a partial painting in the background. (See almost any photo from the Oval Office.) Like with other famous photos, we have to live the inherent imperfections in them. --cart-Talk 10:45, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • There is no "distortion" and the "perspective" is "correct". If you stood where the camera was, looking with one eye, this is what you'd see. There are conventions surrounding architectural and interior building photography that the camera should be level, perpendicular to the facing wall, and the angle of view not too extreme. They are conventions that tend to produce pleasing results for photographs where the subject has straight lines at 90° to each other. Here, the subject is a group of people, and if you are concentrating on the verticals of the door or painting, then you aren't really looking properly. We had this complaint at File:Khandoba temple Pune.jpg, where the subject is the worshipers, and it went on to win 1st prize in WLM. Where do you look in this photo: File:Marilyn Monroe photo pose Seven Year Itch.jpg ;-) -- Colin (talk) 11:36, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Please don't tell me that I'm not "really looking properly". That's patronising. In this image the camera is not "perpendicular to the facing wall". Easily corrected. An important image, but not FP. Charles (talk) 19:53, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Charles, could you consider, perhaps, that you are wrong? Enough neutrality: reviews like this are embarrassing. Please go to Pete Souza's Flickr Stream and examine the photos. Some are level, many are not. Many of his greatest photos are not. It is telling that this photo was published as-is by newspapers ([1], [2], [3], [4], etc) but when reviewed at FPC, we ended up with this rotated crop. Only on Commons does anyone worry that the door frame is not vertical. Only on Commons. *sigh*. The picture editors at all these newspapers [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], [12] didn't feel the need to "correct" the verticals before publishing the photo we are reviewing here. Anyone here taken a photo that's gone viral, viewed by millions, and published in newspapers round the world? No, thought not. So a bird and insect photographer thinks all the world's newspaper photo editors, and Souza, arguably the best political event photographer of this century, are making a newbie, easily corrected, mistake? You are not really looking properly. -- Colin (talk) 20:54, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • "No, thought not."? Wrong actually, Colin. One of my 'bird and insect photographs' was used by the Indian Postal Services on a postage stamp and so has been viewed by many more people than this nominated image. But that's beside the point and mentioned only in response to Colin's rant. I didn't write the FP guidelines which state "Images should not be unintentionally tilted". We are not a newspaper. Voters here are not newspaper editors. And Colin, you should not conclude that I can only take insect and bird images, just because I choose to only submit animal photos to Wikimedia. Charles (talk) 21:23, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Congratulations on your stamp, Charles, but it isn't actually what I meant or said. Your photo didn't "go viral". People didn't think it so meaningful that they forwarded it to their friends with a comment. This image achieved notability -- it was talked about as a photograph, not as so many pixels. Various, independent, newspaper picture editors selects it as a newsworthy image. It wasn't discussed because artistically or technically it was great, though it is perfectly fine, but for what it said. So, no, I don't think anyone where has taken a photo that meant anything. Not a diddly squat. Your bird stamp is a great achievement, but isn't a comment on Trump vs Lövin approach to government, or anything else. This photo is great because of what it says, not because of any of the tedious factors listed in our FPC guidelines. This is just a repeat of the Obama "is my hair like your hair" photo, where Commons embarrases itself by looking at pixels and not the picture. We fail to reliably recognise great photos. If the FP guidelines are being followed so rigidly by some, and you are not alone in becoming a robot wrt such things as noise or CA, then it truely is time to scrap them. They are, in my experience, only ever mentioned by folk defending wrongheaded reviews. -- Colin (talk) 09:32, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

(Edit conflict)*Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose A very interesting photo, I can see why it intrigues you. You could guess that the very exact triple exposure is a result of the ground shaking when the gun fired.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not really liking the strong pattern noise, which has been emphasised by the processing. The hand is blurred and the aspect-ratio/crop just isn't working for me. If we're going to put up with the compromises that result from shooting a live act (high noise, weird colours from lighting, narrow DoF, etc) then I'd like to see the live act. Here is just a B&W photo of hands holding a guitar, which one could create with any anonymous model in the studio with much more pleasing results. -- Colin (talk) 13:05, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Perhaps, but there is always a je-ne-sais-qoui part/mood to a real live concert photo that is hard to duplicate in a studio shot. --cart-Talk 13:39, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • I did a Google image search from the file description page and nearly every b&w image returned included the artists's head. Without that, there's no identity and no life to this "live performance". Many of the search results also are more dynamic in pose/action, whereas this is a very classic guitar hold with no apparent movement. The landscape format makes me think the head is cropped off, though it is more likely the camera was just held that way. -- Colin (talk) 13:58, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Mmmh. FWIW, for me it is very apparent that this is a live performance. "[A]ny anonymous model" won't do for this kind of thing, you'll need an actual guitar player for this or it'll look utterly fake. But I see your point regarding the crop – and I think it could possibly help to crop even more on the top and right. Regarding the noise, I wonder how it would look like had it been shot on actual black & white film (something like Delta 3200 pushed a stop or two). I'm still undecided … --El Grafo (talk) 14:51, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • El Grafo, you're going to tell me now that the models in "Addicted to Love" aren't actual guitar players ;-). Ok, "model" was probably the wrong word, but any modestly able guitar player would do. All I can see here is a white male in a dark t-shirt holding some random guitar.

  • There is only one other FP of this species - it is a different subspecies - and it shows a different profile of one of the world's most beautiful birds. I'm surprised by your comment as you yourself have two FPs of an identical view Example 1 and Example 2. Never mind your two FPs of the same fuscia species Example 3 and Example 4. I realise also that you find that your sawing machine justifies 3 FPs! Do explain your reasoning please. Charles (talk) 22:23, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 06:57, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
    • Answer: your comparison with my photo is not entirely up. Those pictures differ from each other. But of the kingfisher we have at least 5, of which 1 is with a fish in the mouth. The sawing machine is also very different from each other. I also commented on that. Once again your photo is perfect, but it looks like the other photos. But that is my personal opinion.--Famberhorst (talk) 07:02, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
      • I'll leave others to judge the differences between your images, but I don't think there are arbritrary limits on FPs. You may know, for instance, that there are 34 Featured pictures of Ardea, many of the same species - and herons are not more diverse and attractive than the kingfisher family - though I'm biased as I love kingfishers and they are so much more challenging to photograph than herons!

  • @Juliancolton: I did a little searching on the net and some digging and found that most of the files have just been moved to the Reagan Library website. I have put the new links on the file's page. One pdf lists all the rolls of film taken by the White House photographers during 1983, complete with contact sheets and everything (frame 32). Pretty cool! So the name of the photographer is no longer a mystery (it's Michael Evans) and you can apparently order larger files from the library if you want. A fun thing is looking at the other photos in this roll plus the one before and after so you get coverage of the whole event. This looks like a good site to visit to sort things out about photos from that era. --cart-Talk 23:39, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

    The now famous photo where Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lövin signs a climate law referral, witnessed by two State Secretaries and members of her staff. With only women (including one who is visibly pregnant) it is a very non-typical government photo. It is also obvious that the minister is directing her attention to the camera and whoever is watching the photo. It became noticed around the world since it was published only days after the publication of a photo in which Donald Trump signed an executive anti-abortion order (the Mexico City Policy) surrounded by men.

  • Absolutely correct perspective was probably not what was most important for the photographer when creating this photo. Any perspective correction would completely ruin the comopsition and it's not important to do such in a photo like this. It is better to have the people depicted in a good way than worry about the proportions of a partial painting in the background. (See almost any photo from the Oval Office.) Like with other famous photos, we have to live the inherent imperfections in them. --cart-Talk 10:45, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • There is no "distortion" and the "perspective" is "correct". If you stood where the camera was, looking with one eye, this is what you'd see. There are conventions surrounding architectural and interior building photography that the camera should be level, perpendicular to the facing wall, and the angle of view not too extreme. They are conventions that tend to produce pleasing results for photographs where the subject has straight lines at 90° to each other. Here, the subject is a group of people, and if you are concentrating on the verticals of the door or painting, then you aren't really looking properly. We had this complaint at File:Khandoba temple Pune.jpg, where the subject is the worshipers, and it went on to win 1st prize in WLM. Where do you look in this photo: File:Marilyn Monroe photo pose Seven Year Itch.jpg ;-) -- Colin (talk) 11:36, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Please don't tell me that I'm not "really looking properly". That's patronising. In this image the camera is not "perpendicular to the facing wall". Easily corrected. An important image, but not FP. Charles (talk) 19:53, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Charles, could you consider, perhaps, that you are wrong? Enough neutrality: reviews like this are embarrassing. Please go to Pete Souza's Flickr Stream and examine the photos. Some are level, many are not. Many of his greatest photos are not. It is telling that this photo was published as-is by newspapers ([16], [17], [18], [19], etc) but when reviewed at FPC, we ended up with this rotated crop. Only on Commons does anyone worry that the door frame is not vertical. Only on Commons. *sigh*. The picture editors at all these newspapers [20], [21], [22], [23], [24], [25], [26], [27] didn't feel the need to "correct" the verticals before publishing the photo we are reviewing here. Anyone here taken a photo that's gone viral, viewed by millions, and published in newspapers round the world? No, thought not. So a bird and insect photographer thinks all the world's newspaper photo editors, and Souza, arguably the best political event photographer of this century, are making a newbie, easily corrected, mistake? You are not really looking properly. -- Colin (talk) 20:54, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • "No, thought not."? Wrong actually, Colin. One of my 'bird and insect photographs' was used by the Indian Postal Services on a postage stamp and so has been viewed by many more people than this nominated image. But that's beside the point and mentioned only in response to Colin's rant. I didn't write the FP guidelines which state "Images should not be unintentionally tilted". We are not a newspaper. Voters here are not newspaper editors. And Colin, you should not conclude that I can only take insect and bird images, just because I choose to only submit animal photos to Wikimedia. Charles (talk) 21:23, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Congratulations on your stamp, Charles, but it isn't actually what I meant or said. Your photo didn't "go viral". People didn't think it so meaningful that they forwarded it to their friends with a comment. This image achieved notability -- it was talked about as a photograph, not as so many pixels. Various, independent, newspaper picture editors selects it as a newsworthy image. It wasn't discussed because artistically or technically it was great, though it is perfectly fine, but for what it said. So, no, I don't think anyone where has taken a photo that meant anything. Not a diddly squat. Your bird stamp is a great achievement, but isn't a comment on Trump vs Lövin approach to government, or anything else. This photo is great because of what it says, not because of any of the tedious factors listed in our FPC guidelines. This is just a repeat of the Obama "is my hair like your hair" photo, where Commons embarrases itself by looking at pixels and not the picture. We fail to reliably recognise great photos. If the FP guidelines are being followed so rigidly by some, and you are not alone in becoming a robot wrt such things as noise or CA, then it truely is time to scrap them. They are, in my experience, only ever mentioned by folk defending wrongheaded reviews. -- Colin (talk) 09:32, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not really liking the strong pattern noise, which has been emphasised by the processing. The hand is blurred and the aspect-ratio/crop just isn't working for me. If we're going to put up with the compromises that result from shooting a live act (high noise, weird colours from lighting, narrow DoF, etc) then I'd like to see the live act. Here is just a B&W photo of hands holding a guitar, which one could create with any anonymous model in the studio with much more pleasing results. -- Colin (talk) 13:05, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Perhaps, but there is always a je-ne-sais-qoui part/mood to a real live concert photo that is hard to duplicate in a studio shot. --cart-Talk 13:39, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • I did a Google image search from the file description page and nearly every b&w image returned included the artists's head. Without that, there's no identity and no life to this "live performance". Many of the search results also are more dynamic in pose/action, whereas this is a very classic guitar hold with no apparent movement. The landscape format makes me think the head is cropped off, though it is more likely the camera was just held that way. -- Colin (talk) 13:58, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Mmmh. FWIW, for me it is very apparent that this is a live performance. "[A]ny anonymous model" won't do for this kind of thing, you'll need an actual guitar player for this or it'll look utterly fake. But I see your point regarding the crop – and I think it could possibly help to crop even more on the top and right. Regarding the noise, I wonder how it would look like had it been shot on actual black & white film (something like Delta 3200 pushed a stop or two). I'm still undecided … --El Grafo (talk) 14:51, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • El Grafo, you're going to tell me now that the models in "Addicted to Love" aren't actual guitar players ;-). Ok, "model" was probably the wrong word, but any modestly able guitar player would do. All I can see here is a white male in a dark t-shirt holding some random guitar.

  • There is only one other FP of this species - it is a different subspecies - and it shows a different profile of one of the world's most beautiful birds. I'm surprised by your comment as you yourself have two FPs of an identical view Example 1 and Example 2. Never mind your two FPs of the same fuscia species Example 3 and Example 4. I realise also that you find that your sawing machine justifies 3 FPs! Do explain your reasoning please. Charles (talk) 22:23, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 06:57, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
    • Answer: your comparison with my photo is not entirely up. Those pictures differ from each other. But of the kingfisher we have at least 5, of which 1 is with a fish in the mouth. The sawing machine is also very different from each other. I also commented on that. Once again your photo is perfect, but it looks like the other photos. But that is my personal opinion.--Famberhorst (talk) 07:02, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
      • I'll leave others to judge the differences between your images, but I don't think there are arbritrary limits on FPs. You may know, for instance, that there are 34 Featured pictures of Ardea, many of the same species - and herons are not more diverse and attractive than the kingfisher family - though I'm biased as I love kingfishers and they are so much more challenging to photograph than herons!

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Color seems very off, and unsharpness in some areas more than the long exposure can forgive. Daniel Case (talk) 02:38, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Reagan with the Mujahedin

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info In the series of images depicting significant historical events, this image is captioned: President Reagan meeting with Afghan Freedom Fighters to discuss Soviet atrocities in Afghanistan. 2/2/83. During the Soviet invasion, the US provided financial and military support to the mujahedin, in a covert operation managed by the CIA. While this support was classified, the moral support was public - as this image shows.

  • @Juliancolton: I did a little searching on the net and some digging and found that most of the files have just been moved to the Reagan Library website. I have put the new links on the file's page. One pdf lists all the rolls of film taken by the White House photographers during 1983, complete with contact sheets and everything (frame 32). Pretty cool! So the name of the photographer is no longer a mystery (it's Michael Evans) and you can apparently order larger files from the library if you want. A fun thing is looking at the other photos in this roll plus the one before and after so you get coverage of the whole event. This looks like a good site to visit to sort things out about photos from that era. --cart-Talk 23:39, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Historically significant. It seems like a hundred years ago that right-wingers and Evangelicals in the U.S. thought jihadists were righteous "freedom fighters", and of course they were fighting Soviet, rather than American occupation in those days. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:37, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose historically significant moment perhaps, and possibly high enough EV for FP on Wikipedia, but for me the EV doesn't carry it far enough. the capture seems rather unremarkable aside from just being in the room. — Rhododendrites talk |  02:24, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose While hunting for sources for this photos, I've gone over it in by head and now I find that Rhododendrites has expressed my view rather eloquently. Sorry. --cart-Talk 12:07, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - agree that it has EV and would be a good candidate for en.WP but it doesn't quite meet the FP requirements here. Atsme 📞 16:02, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
