Formální záležitosti[edit]

Nominace[edit]

Jestliže jste přesvědčeni, že některý obrázek nahraný na Commons má hodnotu, která by ho opravňovala k zařazení mezi nejlepší obrázky, potom ho prosím přidejte. Můžete navrhnout obrázek, jehož jste autorem, ale i obrázek od kohokoli jiného. Předtím, než obrázek nominujete, zkontrolujte, že je řádně popsán a opatřen správnou licencí.

1) zkopírujte název obrázku do tohoto pole, například: Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Váš obrázek.jpg. Potom klikněte na tlačítko "vytvořit novou nominaci".


2) postupujte podle pokynů na stránce
3) ručně vložite odkaz na vytvořenou stránku nahoru na Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list: klikněte zde, a přidejte následující řádek na začátek seznamu nominací: {{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Váš obrázek.jpg}}

Hlasování[edit]

Prosím hlasujte použitím příslušného slova ve vaší řeči či použitím šablon uvedených níže:

  • Pro - Yes, Sim, Ja, Oui, Sí, Kyllä, 支持, Ano...
  • Proti - No, Não, Nein, Non, Ei, 反对, Ne...

Alternativně můžete použít šablony {{Oppose}}(Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose) a {{Support}}(Symbol support vote.svg Support). Své sympatie k obrázku můžete vyjádřit pomocí šablony {{I love}}(Nuvola apps package favorite.svgSymbol support vote.svg Support) a svůj neutrální postoj pomocí šablony {{Neutral}}(Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral).

Zkuste přidat pár slov o tom, proč se vám obrázek líbí nebo nelíbí, obzvláště pokud hlasujete proti.

Pravidla pro výběr nejlepších obrázků[edit]

  • 14denní hlasovací období. Výsledek hlasování bude vyhodnocen 15. den po nominaci.
  • Jsou vítány i nominace od anonymních příspěvatelů.
  • Příspěvky do diskuse od anonymních příspěvatelů jsou vítány.
  • Hlasy anonymních přispěvatelů se nepočítají.
  • Nominace se nepočítá jako hlasování. Podpora musí být výslovně vyjádřena.
  • Mějte na paměti, že Wikimedia Commons má sloužit jako centrální úložiště svobodných obrázků, které mohou být využity všemi projekty Wikimedia, včetně možných budoucích projektů. Nejde pouze o sbírku obrázků pro wikipedii, navržené obrázky by tedy neměly být posuzovány z hlediska jejich vhodnosti pro tento projekt.

Navržený obrázek bude zařazen na seznam nejlepších obrázků, pokud splní následující podmínky:

  • Odpovídající licence (to je samozřejmé)
  • Nejméně 5 hlasů na jeho podporu
  • Poměr hlasů pro/proti přinejmenším 2:1 (dvoutřetinová většina, tj. přinejmenším 67 % hlasů pro)

Návod na zpracování starých nominací je na stránce Template talk:Featured pictures candidates#What to do after voting is finished.

Kandidáti na vyřazení ze seznamu nejlepších obrázků[edit]

Požadavky na nejlepší obrázky se postupně vyvíjejí. Můžeme dojít k závěru, že některé obrázky, které byly původně "dost dobré", už nevyhovují současným požadavkům.

Zde můžete uvést obrázky, které si podle vás už nezaslouží patřit mezi nejlepší obrázky. Pro vyřazení je třeba 2/3 většina hlasů a minimálně 5 hlasů pro vyřazení. V opačném případě obrázek zůstane zařazen mezi nejlepšími obrázky. Hlasujte pomocí šablon {{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep (zasluhuje si i nadále být mezi nejlepšími obrázky) nebo {{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist (měl by být ze seznamu vyřazen). Uveďte prosím odkaz na původní nominaci mezi nejlepší obrázky (ta je uvedena na stránce s popiskem obrázku). Jinak platí stejná pravidla jako při hlasování o kandidátech na nejlepší obrázky.

Pro návrh obrázku na vyřazení ze seznamu nejlepších obrázků prosím použijte následující šablonu, kde v řádku za předdefinovaný zápis, za dvojtečku doplňte název obrázku nominovaného k vyřazení:



Nová stránka návrhu na vyřazení by měla obsahovat:

  • Informace o původu obrázku (autor, kdo jej náhrál, případně odkud byl obrázek převzat).
  • Odkaz na záznam nominace / hlasování (je uveden na stránce obrázku).
  • Důvod návrhu vyřazení.

Po tomto je nutno ručně vložit odkaz nahoru na stránku Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not really representative of the range of colours available in an 8-bit colour system. The rather simple program used to generate this doesn't appear to include the extremes of red, green, blue, black or white. There are 16-million colours possible in 8-bits, and though there are many ways to try to display them all, none are fully satisfactory. Colour is probably best thought of in 3D space. -- Colin (talk) 17:16, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As for "none are fully satisfactory" -- satisfaction is subjective, but have you seen this? images with every colour. Many of the entries in the link have all 16,777,216 colours. As a bonus, all StackOverflow user contributions are licensed under cc by-sa 3.0 so feel free to copy your favourite one over to Commons. dllu (t,c) 02:26, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
  • dllu, thanks for the link. There are indeed many beautiful ways to present the colours, whether 32,767 or 16,777,216. By "satisfactory" I meant a definitive or standard representation that had high educational value. A rainbow can display the pure spectrum of colour, and we can show 256 shades of red, green or blue pure colours, but there isn't any standard way I know of to describe the mix in a 2D form. -- Colin (talk) 11:04, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because Nothing exceptional, incomplete nomination. Yann (talk) 09:42, 21 January 2018 (UTC) Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.

The downside of living on this granite, is that everything glitters and you always get these little white glints in photos. These are some stairs in one of the old quarries, now nature reserve.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Nice job. I've stood in that spot a few dozen times, but every time I've had my camera with me it's either oppressively crowded or bad lighting. It's an impressive structure but can be surprisingly difficult to get a technically good shot of while you're on it. I happen to look through a lot of pictures of the bridge last week, putting together a slideshow for the NYC Wikipedia Day event, and was torn between this one and this other one of yours. Ultimately, I went with the latter, but I think this is a good FP candidate. — Rhododendrites talk |  04:41, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Little boy with deciduous teeth and stains of mud and marker on his forehead, laughing in the countryside of Don Det, Laos
  • I respect your opinion, Charles, though I don't share it. There are many FPs of children on Commons:Featured_pictures/People, including two of mine, and we have at least 10 beautiful portraits of children. Those are as interesting and useful than birds or monkeys on Commons IMO -- Basile Morin (talk) 22:37, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Please clarify: You never got the consent of the boy's parent or guardian? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:40, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
  • This picture was shot in a public space. As far as I know, not consent is required for an action related to a picture of a person in a public space in Laos, like in China, see Commons:Country_specific_consent_requirements. Only consent is necessary for a commercially use, and there is a Personality Rights template associated to this file, which may be helpful and clear enough as it is. Moreover, I always have the implicit consent of all the people taken in picture that I publish. I'm not a paparazzi. I respect all the people I shoot (even those who laugh and make me laugh because they laugh). This joyful smile was not extracted through money, threat, nor pressure. No, no, it really just comes from the heart. And IMHO parents should be more grateful than rancorous with such a valuable image of their child, all the more so as I nearly always make prints (professionaly made) offered to the family. But anyone here could process differently, I don't mind, that's not the matter. There are hundreds of FPs of people on Commons, see for example this File:Young_Ashaninka_girl_in_an_Apiwtxa_village,_Acre_state,_Brazil.jpg very close to my style, and I assume everybody here is acting like I act. Then, honestly, I don't really understand these insistent questions related to copyrighting aspects. Here this is the FP area, not the OTRS department. So the pictures should be judged for their technical and aesthetical characteristics only. Dealing with other concerns is just out of the subject, I think, and may negatively influence the present votes -- Basile Morin (talk) 11:28, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
  • I accept your argument and Symbol support vote.svg Support this good composition and sunny smile. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 12:07, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
Basile We have internationally a wide range of attitudes towards photographing strangers, and particularly children. Street photography has a long tradition but this ranges from those who take candids by force, walking down the street snapping away, or those who ask for permission with a smile and a nod, or those who think it rude not to first develop a rapor with the subject before even considering taking a photo, to those who would not take any image without permission and consent in writing. In the UK, as a middle-aged man, if I tried to take a photo of a stranger's child, even in a public space where it is legal, I would be in quite serious risk of being physically attacked as some kind of paedophile and having the police called to arrest me. Common policy (COM:IDENT) is pretty much to be permissive about what is acceptable here, within the constraints of law. It is therefore not a guide to "finest" opinions about best practice wrt photographing people. There is a big difference between getting consent to take a photograph for personal use and having consent to publish it widely such as on Commons or Wikipedia. While your offer of a photo in exchange is a nice gesture, I suspect those involved did not know their image might end up in a Wikipedia article with thousands of hits per day. In practice, the "personality rights" that the Commons template mentions only really exist in the US, and there is no such protection in the UK for example, other than basic human right law. It can only be enforced by the subject, and I don't realistically think a boy from a village in Laos is in a position to sue any big corporation using this photo without permission. There is a gaping chasm between what is so awful that Commons agrees to delete it and what allows everyone to feel as warm as the sun in this photo. I think it is therefore fair for reviewers to raise questions about the provenance and ethics of an image, and to oppose if they wish even if no law has been broken or policy infringed. -- Colin (talk) 14:37, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment FP is not only about "high artistic merit", but also about "high illustrative merit". What this image may lack in artistic merit, I hope it makes up for it in illustrative merit. Besides, COM:SCOPE says that Wikimedia Commons is about educational images, "providing knowledge; instructional or informative". To me, it is much more clear and informative to see the garbage truck that has been separated from its cluttered background. I can see this type of image being useful in educational media such as children's books and textbooks. dllu (t,c) 22:19, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'd put it like this: FP is (supposed to be) about images that make you go "wow!" in some kind of way. Where that "wow" comes from doesn't really matter, and there are many different ways of evoking it. It can come from the subject (like something very old or rare), technical execution (like an incredibly well done macro shot of a boring object), artistic merit or a combination of these factors. --El Grafo (talk) 09:48, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

The masking is very well done even when pixel-peeping, and so is the artificial shadow beneath the truck. The flat lighting that makes the original photograph a bit boring-looking is perfect for this almost drawing-like illustrative image. And finally, yes, I am actually "wow"-ed by this transformation of a meh photograph into a very educative illustration. --El Grafo (talk) 13:31, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

It's an excellent image and deserves FP status. Just my two cents. PumpkinSky talk 12:23, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Uoaei1. It isn't like "different parts of the same church". It's the same saw, just from different angles. So it is more like different views of the alter, taken on the same day with the same light and same processing. I also don't think it is fair-play to nominate in this way without declaring the previous noms. FP is about "finest", which includes choosing from one's own shots of the same object. -- Colin (talk) 13:13, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I can appreciate not wanting to promote another image of the same object, but it seems sufficiently different to me and if we were only allowed two of the subject, this would be one of the two. — Rhododendrites talk |  04:49, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Per Johann. In addition, the main branches are on the rule of thirds line and very sharp. This almost looks like it was taken looking up to the sky but I'm pretty sure it was taken looking into the fallen snow. HalfGig talk 18:05, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very nice colors and the double textures make the image. Suggestion: I think I would crop just a sliver of the bottom to not get that last ice blob cut. Just the branch makes for a cleaner finish. See note. Or perhaps clone out the blob. --cart-Talk 10:40, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Johann Jaritz, HalfGig, Ikan Kekek, Martin Falbisoner, Daniel Case: @W.carter: All, thanks for the supports! So that everyone knows, the background is not a wall. HalfGig was on the right track, it's fallen snow on the ground. These are the low branches on an Asian Pear tree. The camera was on a tripod and aimed downward at a sharp angle. Cart, I will look at your suggestions. PumpkinSky talk 12:02, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
  • @W.carter: I tried to clone it, but since the ice is also over the twig, it still looked weird. So I went with the small crop. I agree it looks better. Thanks! PumpkinSky talk 12:15, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
