Zasady prezentacji grafik kandydatów[edit]

Zasady główne[edit]

  1. Po zakończeniu okresu głosowania wynik będzie ogłoszony 15. dnia po nominacji (tak jak jest to pokazane w tabelce czasowej poniżej). A więc okres głosowania to dwa tygodnie (plus godziny do końca 14. dnia). Głosy dodane 15. dnia i później nie są liczone.
  2. Nominacje zgłaszane przez anonimowych uczestników są mile widziane.
  3. Wkład do dyskusji przez anonimowych uczestników jest również mile widziany.
  4. Głosy oddane przez anonimowych uczestników nie są liczone.
  5. Nominacje nie liczą się jako głosy. Poparcie musi być wyraźnie określone.
  6. Nominowani mogą wycofać swoje nominowane zdjęcia w każdej chwili - pisząc: "I withdraw my nomination" lub dodając tekst {{withdraw|~~~~}}.
  7. Pamiętaj, że celem projektu Wikimedia Commons jest zapewnienie centralnego repozytorium dla grafik używanych przez wszystkie projekty Wikimedia, łącznie z możliwymi przyszłymi projektami. To nie jest po prostu depozyt dla grafik Wikipedii, więc grafiki nie powinny być tutaj oceniane na podstawie ich przydatności dla tego projektu.
  8. Zdjęcia mogą być usuwane z listy, jeżeli nie mają żadnego poparcia (nie licząc nominujących) w 5. dniu (dzień nominacji + 5).
  9. Zdjęcie oznaczone szablonem {{FPX}} może zostać usunięte z listy po 24 godzinach od zastosowania tego znacznika, pod warunkiem że nie ma ono głosów popierających poza nominującym.

Zasady publikacji grafik[edit]

Grafika kandydata zostanie umieszczona, jeżeli będzie spełniać następujące warunki:

  1. Odpowiednia licencja (co jest oczywiste)
  2. Grafika musi mieć przynajmniej 7 głosów poparcia
  3. Podział głosów popierających/przeciwnych musi mieścić się przynajmniej w stosunku 2/1 (większość dwóch - trzecich)
  4. Nie mogą być wybrane dwie różne wersje tej samej grafiki - wybrana zostanie wersja z większą liczbą oddanych głosów.

Zobacz jak postępować ze starymi nominacjami: Template talk:Featured pictures candidates#Co zrobić kiedy głosowanie się zakończy.

Usuwanie zdjęć prezentowanych kandydatów[edit]

Nadgodzinowa zamiana standardów zamieszczonej grafiki. Może się tak zdarzyć, że dla niektórych grafik formalne wystarczająco dobre nie jest już aktualne. To jest dla listy zdjęć, które wierzysz, że nie zasługują dłużej by być prezentowaną grafiką. To wymaga 2/3 głosów większości (i minimum 5 głosów) zgadzających się na usunięcie z listy prezentowanych zdjęć. Jeżeli nie ma 2/3 głosów zgadzających się na usunięcie z listy, nominacja zostaje jako prezentowana grafika. Dla nich głosuj "Zachowaj" Symbol keep vote.svg Keep (to zasługuje by być prezentowaną grafiką) lub "Usuń z listy" Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist (to nie zasługuje by być prezentowaną grafiką). Proszę zapewnij link do oryginalnej FP nominacji (to pojawi się pod Links na stronie opisu grafiki). Inaczej te same zasady jak te powyżej wchodzą w życie. Proszę użyj tego linku this link aby dodać nowego możliwego do usunięcia kandydata.

Wskazówki dla nominujących[edit]

Poniżej możesz znaleźć niektóre ”informacje” na temat zasad, które zdjęcia powinny spełniać:

  • Rozdzielczość – Grafiki zlokalizowane na Commons mogą być używane nie tylko do oglądania na ekranie. Mogą zostać również użyte do drukowania lub oglądania na monitorach o bardzo wysokiej rozdzielczości. Nie możemy także przewidzieć, jakie urządzenia zostaną użyte w przyszłości, a więc ważne jest, aby zdjęcia, które są nominowane, miały tak dużą rozdzielczość jak tylko jest to możliwe. Rozdzielczość powinna być przynajmniej na poziomie 2 mln pikseli (np. 2000x1000), co wydaje się rozsądne na obecną chwilę.
  • Ostrość – każdy ważny przedmiot na grafice powinien być odpowiednio ostry (nie rozmyty).
  • Pierwszy plan i drugi plan – obiekty pierwszoplanowe i drugoplanowe mogą przeszkadzać i odwracać uwagę od głównej zawartości grafiki. Powinieneś/aś sprawdzić czy obiekt z przodu nie zasłania innych ważnych elementów i czy coś na drugim planie nie rozprasza kompozycji (np. gdy światło latarni nie świeci nad czyjąś głową).
  • Głównie Jakość – grafiki nominowane powinny mieć dobrą techniczną jakość.
  • Wartość – naszym głównym celem jest prezentowanie najbardziej wartościowych grafik ze wszystkich dostępnych. Zdjęcia powinny być na swój sposób wyjątkowe, więc bądź tego świadomy/a:
    • prawie wszystkie wschody słońca są ładne i większość takich zdjęć nie jest inna w swojej esencji od innych,
    • zdjęcia nocy są ładne, ale zasadniczo więcej detali można zobaczyć na zdjęciach zrobionych w czasie dnia.
    • piękne nie zawsze musi znaczyć wartościowe.

Nie każda zasada musi być dopasowana, np. grafika może mieć niewielką rozdzielczość, ponieważ wyższa rozdzielczość nie może już być zrobiona (temat zdjęcia już nie żyje lub nie istnieje) lub wydarzenie już nigdy więcej się nie powtórzy.

Wskazówki do oceniania grafik[edit]

Istnieje kilka kryteriów dla oceniania grafik.

Z technicznej strony mamy ekspozycję, kompozycję, kontrolę ruchu i głębokość pola.

  • Ekspozycja odnosi się do zamkniętego diagramu kombinacji, który wykonuje grafikę z stonowaną krzywą, która jest idealnie zdolna do reprezentacji szczegółów cieni i punktów szczytowych w grafice. To nazywamy poziomem. Grafiki mogą być na niskiej stronie stonowanej krzywej (niski zasięg), środkowej (środkowy zasięg) lub wysokiej stronie (wysoki zasięg). Kamery cyfrowe (lub grafiki) mają bardziej skurczony poziom niż film. Brak detalu cienia nie jest koniecznie charakterystyczny dla negatywu. Faktycznie może to być część zaplanowanego efektu. Wypalone szczytowe punkty w dużych częściach rozpraszają element.
  • Kompozycja odnosi się do uzgodnienia elementów w grafice. ”Zasada Trójpodziału” jest dobrą wskazówką dla kompozycji i jest odziedziczona ze szkoły malarstwa. Ideą tą jest rozdzielenie grafiki z dwiema poziomymi i dwiema pionowymi liniami, w ten sposób dzieląc grafikę w trzecie poziomo i pionowo. Centrowanie tematu jest zawsze uważane za złą praktykę. Tematy zainteresowania są zawsze umieszczone w jednym z ‘’punktów zainteresowania’’, gdzie poziome i pionowe linie przecinają się (cztery takie punkty przecięcia są stworzone). Poziomy nie są nigdy umieszczone w środku, bo ‘’przecinają’’ grafikę na połowę. Są umieszczone albo w górnej lub dolnej poziomej linii. Główną ideą jest nie umieszczanie tematu w centrum.
  • Kontrola ruchu odnosi się do sposobu, w jaki emocja jest odwzorowana w Grafice. Emocja może być zamrożona lub rozmazana. Przy czym jedna w cale nie jest lepsza od drugiej. To intencja odwzorowania jest ważna. Ruch jest ustosunkowany w obiektach na Grafice. Np. Fotografując samochód wyścigowy, który pojawia się zamrożony w relacji do tła, nie daje nam poczucia prędkości ruchu, a więc technika dyktuje reprezentacje samochodu w zamrożony sposób, ale z zamazanym tłem, aby stworzyć poczucie ruchu, ta technika to ‘’panoramowanie’’. Z drugiej strony zaprezentowanie koszykarza w skoku nie wymaga użycia tej techniki w związku z jego nienaturalną pozycją, co automatycznie sprawia że zdjęcie jest prawidłowe.
  • Głębia ostrości (DOF – Depth Of Field) odnosi się do części ostrości z przodu i za głównym tematem. Głębia ostrości jest wybrana odnośnie do specyficznych potrzeb każdego zdjęcia. Duża lub mała głębia ostrości może zwiększyć lub podważyć jakość grafiki. Niska głębia ostrości może być użyta dla przyciągnięcia uwagi do głównego tematu, oddzielając go od otoczenia. Wysoka głębia ostrości może być użyta do uwydatnienia przestrzeni. Soczewki krótkoogniskowe (szerokokątne) zapewniają większą głębię ostrości, i odwrotnie, soczewki o długich ogniskowych (teleobiektywy) mają małą głębię ostrości. Najmniejsze przesłony (zasunięte) powiększają głębię i odwrotnie, otwarte zmniejszają ją.

Na elementach graficznych mamy kształt, objętość, kolor, teksturę, perspektywę, równowagę, proporcję itd.

  • Kształt odnosi się do konturów głównych tematów.
  • Objętość odnosi się do trójwymiarowej jakości tematu. Jest to osiągane używając światła ze strony (z boku). Przeciwnie do generalnego poglądu, przednie światło nie jest najlepszym światłem. Ono dąży do spłaszczenia tematu. Najlepszym światło dzienne jest wczesnym rankiem lub późnym popołudniem.
  • Kolor jest ważny. Przesycenie kolorami nie jest dobre.
  • Tekstura odnosi się do jakości powierzchni tematu. Jest ona wzmagana przez boczne światło… to jest ”wyczucie” dotyku…
  • Perspektywa odnosi się do ”kąta” towarzyszącego przez linie, które znikają w znikającym punkcie, który może, lecz nie musi być wewnątrz grafiki.
  • Równowaga odnosi się do porozumienia tematów w grafice, które mogą dać albo równą wagę lub wydawać się cięższe z jednej strony.
  • Proporcja odnosi się do relacji wielkości tematów w zdjęciu. Generalnie dążymy do reprezentowania małych obiektów, małych w relacjach do innych, ale dobrą techniką jest reprezentowanie małych obiektów przeciwieństw do naturalnych rozmiarów wzajemnego stosunku. Na przykład, mały kwiat skupia większe zastanowienie niż wielka góra…. Nazywamy to odwróceniem skali.

Nie wszystkie elementy muszą być obecne. Niektóre fotografie mogą być osądzone na postawie indywidualnych charakterystyk, np. grafika może być o kolorze lub teksturze, lub kolorze i teksturze, itd.

Symboliczne znaczenie lub powiązanie…. Tu właśnie zaczyna się wojna na opinie…. Złe zdjęcie bardzo trudnego tematu jest lepsze niż zdjęcie dobre zwyczajnego tematu. Dobre zdjęcie trudnego tematu jest nadzwyczajną fotografią.

Grafiki mogą być zrobione kulturowo stronniczo przez fotografującego i/lub obserwatora. Znaczenie grafiki powinno być ocenione zgodnie z kulturalnym kontekstem grafiki, nie przez kulturalny kontekst obserwatora. Grafika „przemawia" do ludzi i ma siłę, aby wywoływać emocje takie jak wrażliwość, wściekłość, odrzucenie, radość, smutek itp. Dobre fotografie nie są ograniczone do wywoływania przyjemnych wrażeń….

Ponad Wszystko bądź kulturalny[edit]

Proszę nie zapomnij, że grafika, którą oceniasz, jest czyjąś pracą. Unikaj używania fraz takich jak „to wygląda strasznie” i „nienawidzę tego”. Jeżeli musisz być przeciw - rób to z rozwagą. Pamiętaj także, że twoja znajomość języka może nie być taka sama jak kogoś innego. Dobieraj swoje słowa z uwagą.

Miłego oceniania… i pamiętaj…. wszystkie zasady mogą być złamane.

      • PumpkinSky, Commons:Image guidelines says "Featured pictures candidates should meet all the following requirements, must have a "wow factor"". Without this, and the core mission to select the "finest on Commons", then it is just QI. Technical adequate photos are extremely common, rather easy to achieve, and belong at QI.

PumpkinSky your "the FP community does more harm than good" comment is incredibly rude to your fellow reviewers, who are simply doing their job. All because we failed to sing the praises of a couple of your rather ordinary photos. While FPC is sometimes a game of roulette, it isn't a game to play with pretty much most of your uploads in the hope a few pass the grade. The response is no surprise at all.

Church fresco - Triumphal entry into Jerusalem
  • Read more about the church. Well, momentally just in Serbian, Macedonian and Bulgarian language. Church is one of main, built 1872, second to Eparchial. So question is more, was it restored and when. Otherwise even smaller churches around got old frescos...welcome to Macedonia. --Mile (talk) 16:57, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
    • My feeling is: not restored, but completely new, in byzantine style. Something like at the pediment of Athens cathedral. The building is old enough, but not the fresco/mosaic. But I don't know.--Jebulon (talk) 10:07, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment First let me say I'm very happy to see you contributing new images again. I recall Diliff's version File:Notre-Dame Basilica Interior, Montreal, Canada - Diliff.jpg (which actually dates from 2006) and his comments at the FPC: "It's quite a dark interior and to preserve the highlight details, I've chosen not to bump the shadows too much. As is often the case, the full size image doesn't look as dark as it does in the thumbnail so please view at 100%". This last comment is true: if one makes his image full-screen, the eye adjusts to the lower ambient light compared to a thumbnail on white. My first thoughts on seeing this collection was "who turned the lights up max" and "why is everything so yellow". Aside from the HDR brightness and colours, I don't think the pulpit shot is at FP level. You've shot it too close and the extreme perspective distortion is too much. I'll have a closer study of the set later. -- Colin (talk) 06:56, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
    Colin: You're probably right about the pulpit, but there was not much playroom behind me. Either this way or with a partial view of the pulpit due to the benches (as there was no possibility to get to the upper level of the basilica). The pulpit is not essential part of the set, though, I could remove it. Poco2 07:27, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Good point by Colin. This set looks as shiny as Las Vegas lights. Comparing to Diliff version, it is clear that naturally this place is not that shiny. EDIT : Symbol support vote.svg Support the new version of the set. -- Pofka (talk) 07:38, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Yes, I have to say it never looked anything like this when I visited. I will freely admit that I visited in January late in the afternoon where there was no ambient light filtering through the windows, whereas there is in Poco's version, but I don't think it needed to be processed with so much luminosity. It seems much too bright and saturated, not just compared to my recollection of the scene, but also aesthetically speaking. I think all the images would benefit from a more low-key approach to processing but that is just my gut feeling. Diliff (talk) 08:19, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
      • Well, from my point of view, your version, David looks too dark to me, to be honest. Yes, we had daylight coming into the church, as you can see here, but still I feel that the lighting in the church was stronger. These pictures do reflect pretty much what I recall, I can surely reduce the exposition a bit, but not to that level. Regarding saturation I've to say that the colors of this basilica are really vivid, specially the altar. It would be great to hear the opinion of somebody who has been recently there. Poco2 08:58, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
        • I'm not saying you should reduce it to the levels of my image. As I said, mine was taken without any ambient light as it was dark outside. The lighting was very different so I'm not saying it should look like mine. My image looks as it looked when I visited (very dark, just the lights of the altar and a few lights on the columns). Yours obviously had more ambient light during your visit, and I can see that more of the lights in the stalls were turned on, as well as more lights on the altar too. I'm just saying that regardless of how it was when you visited, it appears a little too bright in these images (objectively speaking). The colours are a bit washed out and some highlights blown or nearly blown (perhaps just one colour channel blown, which results in a flat area of no detail). Look at the altar and ceiling, there's a lot of detail missing there. Look at the rays of light coming from the middle of the spires in the centre - there's shades of yellow that are almost completely missing - it looks almost white. I just think this is the result of overexposure (or at least processing so that it is too bright). We don't perceive really luminous colours as 'blown' in the same way a camera and display with limited dynamic range portrays them. I can't imagine that this is how it really looked in person. Diliff (talk) 10:10, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
          • David, I checked the sources of light again. Apart from the fact that apparently all lamps were on, when I visited it, there are several light inlets in the church not just in the walls, but in the roof, some are over those lamps in the middle of the nave and a bigger one over the main altar. About your comments on overexposure will check that closely this evening. Poco2 12:29, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - I was there last summer (that is, summer of 2016), on an afternoon. There was some light coming in, but if I remember correctly, it wasn't nearly as bright as depicted in these photos, although it was brighter than when Diliff was there. I feel like the atmosphere in the church was closer to Diliff's version, though. I hope my girlfriend, a former resident of Montreal, has a chance to look at these photos, because she could say whether it ever looked this bright in her experience. I'll let you know what she has to say when I'm able to show these to her. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:36, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'm puzzled with the colors. The top of the pulpit is deformed.--Jebulon (talk) 16:39, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I've uploaded a new version of the series with less saturation and exposure, the difference should be visible but not dramatic. I've also removed the pulpit picture from the series, I agree with the comments in that case. David, the dynamic range in the church was considerable, my darkest frames do in fact have some overexposed dots (lamps) but not in the altar. Poco2 18:55, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
    • It's normal to have blown highlights in the lamps. It's nearly impossible to process lamps properly anyway from my experience, because Lightroom doesn't actually provide enough control to reduce the highlights enough - partly due to the sliders not going far enough, and partly because the processing engine seems to have trouble with extreme highlight reduction. So if there was no overexposure in the altar then it was just processed too brightly I think. At least no information was lost, you just needed to reduce the luminosity a bit.

      • @Atsme, Dey.sandip, Ermell: This is a Linden tree, which is generally translated into English as "lime" (believed to be a corruption of "lind" and not related to the fruit) by Europeans and is generally called basswood by Americans. This is in the family Malvaceae/Tiliaceae (depening on who you want to listen to), genus tilia, order Malvales. There is an FP section for Plants#Family_:_Tiliaceae, and I've changed the FPC category to reflect that. Ermell, I hope that's okay, if not feel free to change that. I think Dey may have been asking why the FPC category wasn't more specific. PumpkinSky talk 12:15, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • @Ikan Kekek: Not really sure about that rainbowy area. It might also be due to marble as there also are other shining areas (f.e. near right lamp). There is no other way to capture the whole chapel as it is one of the Vilnius Cathedral side rooms and it has quite small gates, so centered image is not possible here. -- Pofka (talk) 07:31, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Thanks. That seems to me like a good argument for VIC, but not for supporting a feature. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:29, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose No, such a distorted image may be interesting but not excellent. That's my opinion. -- Lothar Spurzem (talk) 22:02, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The distortion is one thing but there's also that light disturbance in the upper left section.--Peulle (talk) 07:58, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
    • It's a lens flare, difficult to avoid with strong light coming in through the window. And as Pofka said, it's a very small room so unfortunately this angle of view is needed to see enough of it. I can understand the criticisms though, it is not ideal. But the compromises are necessary in this case. Diliff (talk) 10:34, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I understand that compromises were necessary, but in this case I do think they mean the picture could not be featurable. Daniel Case (talk) 14:44, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I was on a ferry on the San Francisco Bay recently and saw this big ship passing through a little pocket of light amidst dark fog.

    • Since it came up at QIC, I should mention that I did not add vignetting to this in postprocessing. It's just the unusual light amid the fog. — Rhododendrites talk |  02:39, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I'd support cropping another third of the water in the foreground, but I support for the drama. I can easily imagine this as a cinematic shot. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:23, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
    • After your post-QIC advice, I experimented with a few different crops. One of the things I like about this image is the circular[ish] patch of light that illuminates the water as well as what's above water. For me, it contributes to the drama/cinematic feel. As I see it, that circle extends to near the bottom of the frame in the current crop. I didn't like the way a more severe crop cut into that shape. If it were otherwise I would surely agree with you from a composition point of view. Not sure if I'm explaining that well, or if I'm helping or hurting by explaining, but there it is. :) — Rhododendrites talk |  22:23, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

  • I object to haziness in photos sometimes, but if the haziness is the entire point of the photo, it's hard for me to relate to rejecting it based on haze. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:07, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Interesting, dramatic shot. Dark part in combo with enlighted part is well made, wanted to say crop but no, its better like this. --Mile (talk) 08:35, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I was also thinking "crop" at first but at full size, the dark waves in the foreground are scary enough to keep. It's the kind of seascape I'm always grateful I don't have to be out in. Taking advantage of a natural "vignetting" also shows that you can see motifs appearing and quickly decide to take the shot, capturing the moment. --cart-Talk 09:51, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support If this photo had been made by someone else than Christian, I would have yelled "oversaturated" but I know he isn't prone to such exaggerations. When a cloudbank comes or departs over the sea, you can get some pretty extreme light effects. Most of the time they are very difficult to catch in a photo so well done. --cart-Talk 08:02, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Thanks you Ivar, I felt very lucky of this light, I came out of my job and the sky was clear, the time that I come to home, take my camera and go near the harbour, and the sun was hidden. I was terribly disappointed, and I was going to return at home but the weather has been generous, and the sun just lit some parts of the harbour with intermittent causing a dramatic effect with this contrast. Thank you cart, but you maybe right, while I always try to obtain a good visual effect I sometimes go a bit far when processing, is it too much? Christian Ferrer (talk) 11:00, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
  • (Edit conflict) I think that for the sake of the photo and for those not used to extreme harbor lights, you could turn it down a bit. It will not harm the photo. Sometimes I have to do a bit of desaturating of original photos when photographing sea, sky and clouds here since no one would believe me otherwise. ;-) --cart-Talk 11:14, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The small version on the nomination page doesn't do this one justice. It really needs to be viewed full screen and zoomed in to appreciate the many, many details that make for an compelling scene.
