Les règles des Propositions d'images remarquables ont changé.
Conformément aux règles générales, une image est promue avec 7 (sept) votes "support" ou plus (et un ratio de 2/1 de # supports/opposes) et le nombre de nominations actives par utilisateur est limité à 2 (deux)
Désormais, seuls peuvent voter les membres inscrits depuis plus de 10 jours ayant procédé à au moins 50 interventions dans "Commons"

Cette page recense les images qui sont proposées pour être affichées dans les Images remarquables. Notez qu'il ne s'agit pas de la même chose que l'image du jour ou que les images de qualité.

Les archives des votes précédents se trouvent sur cette page.

Il existe également une liste chronologique des images remarquables.

Procédure[edit]

Conseils avant de proposer une image[edit]

partie en cours de traduction depuis la version anglaise, votre avis est le bienvenu.
Lisez entièrement le guide avant de commencer
Quelques règles informelles à retenir avant de proposer une image (les termes en italiques sont la traduction anglaise des termes).

  • Définition (display resolution) : les images de Commons peuvent être utilisées sur d'autres supports qu'un écran d'ordinateur, par exemple pour être imprimées ou vues à très haute résolution. Il est important que les images proposées aient la plus haute résolution possible. Au moins 2 millions de pixels (par ex. 2000 x 1000) semble raisonnable à présent. Les images de définition inférieure sont systématiquement rejetées sauf s'il y a une bonne raison.
  • Mise au point (focus) : tous les objets importants de l'image devraient être nets. Dans l'idéal les objets non primordiaux sont nets.
  • Avant-plan et arrière-plan (background and foreground): ils peuvent être dérangeants. Le sujet principal ne devrait pas être caché par le premier plan, ni se confondre avec l'arrière-plan.
  • Qualité générale (general quality) : Les images proposées devraient avoir une très haute qualité technique.
  • Une retouche (digital manipulations) ne doit pas tromper l'observateur. La correction de quelques défauts dans l'image est acceptée pour autant que ce soit limité, bien fait, et non pour tromper. Les retouches courantes sont le recadrage, la correction de la perspective, de netteté, des couleurs ou de l'exposition. Des manipulations plus importantes, tels quel l'élimination d'éléments dans l'arrière plan, doivent être décrites dans la description de l'image, par le biais du modèle {{RetouchedPicture}}. Les retouches non décrites ou mal décrites qui transformeraient le sujet sont inacceptables.
  • Utilité (value) : notre but principal est de présenter des images utiles et précieuses. Les images devraient ainsi être spéciales d'une façon ou d'une autre, donc, entre autres :
    • La plupart des coucher de soleil sont beaux, et la plupart ne sont pas différents des autres existant déjà.
    • Les photos de nuit sont souvent belles mais davantage de détails sont visibles de jour.
    • "Beau" ne veut pas dire "utile".

Au niveau technique, nous avons l'exposition, la composition, le mouvement et la profondeur du champ.

  • L'exposition (exposure) est l'obturation du diaphragme qui modifie la luminosité (brightness) pour rendre avec qualité les ombres et les lumières au sein de l'image. Le manque d'ombres dans le détail n'est pas nécessairement négatif, cela peut être un effet désiré.
  • La composition (composition) est l'arrangement des éléments dans l'image. La "Règle de trois" est un bon guide pour la composition, c'est un héritage des écoles de peintures. L'idée est de diviser l'image par deux lignes horizontales et deux lignes verticales, nous avons donc trois parties dans chaque sens. L'objet ne doit pas forcément être centré. Les sujets intéressants doivent êtres placés aux 4 croisements des lignes. L'horizon ne doit jamais être mis au milieu, car il couperait l'image en deux. L'idée principale ici est de rendre l'image dynamique.
  • Netteté (sharpness) renvoie à la manière dont les mouvements sont représentés dans l'image. Ils peuvent être nets ou flous. Ils ne sont pas mieux l'un que l'autre, cela dépend de l'intention du photographe. L'impression de mouvement dépend des différents objets de l'image. Par exemple, photographier une voiture de course qui apparaît nette par rapport à l'arrière plan ne donne pas une idée de la vitesse. Il faudrait en fait que la voiture soit représentée nette, mais avec un arrière plan flou, créant ainsi le mouvement. D'un autre coté, représenter le saut d'un joueur de basket net avec le reste de l'image flou, en raison de la nature peu habituelle de la photo, lui conférerait de l'intérêt.
  • La profondeur de champ (depth of field or DOF) renvoie à la zone de mise au point devant et au delà du sujet principal. La profondeur de champ est choisie en fonction des besoins spécifiques à chaque image. Une profondeur grande ou petite peut améliorer ou dégrader la qualité de l'image. Une faible profondeur de champ peut attirer l'attention sur le sujet principal, en le séparant de son environnement. Les lentilles à petite distance focale (grand angle) ont une grande profondeur de champ, et vice versa, les lentilles à grande distance focale (petite ouverture) ont une petite profondeur de champ.

Proposition[edit]

Règles[edit]

Règles générales[edit]

  1. Le résultat est donné 9 jours après la proposition (voir le planning en bas de page). Les votes ajoutés le 10e jour ou après ne sont pas décomptés.
  2. Les utilisateurs non-enregistrés peuvent proposer des images, faire des commentaires, mais pas voter.
  3. La proposition elle-même ne compte pas comme un vote : il faut l'ajouter explicitement.
  4. Le proposant peut retirer une image à tout moment, en écrivant : {{withdraw}} ~~~~
  5. Souvenez-vous que le but de Wikimedia Commons est une bibliothèque pour tous les projets Wikimedia, y compris des projets futurs ; les images n'ont pas à être utiles uniquement pour Wikipédia.
  6. Les images peuvent être retirées de la liste dès le 5e jour si elles n'ont reçu aucun vote "pour".
  7. Soyez attentifs et très sélectifs dans les choix que vous faites, car il ne peut y avoir que deux propositions actives par proposant. Toute proposition supplémentaire sera rejetée sans examen.
  8. Seulement 2 nominations actives par même utilisateur (qui est, en nomination sous "review" et non encore close) sont autorisées. Le principal but de cette mesure est de contribuer à une meilleure qualité moyenne des nominations, par un choix plus judicieux des photos présentes en nominations.

Règles de promotion[edit]

L'image candidate devient une image remarquable si elle remplit les conditions suivantes :

  1. Une licence appropriée (bien sûr !)
  2. Au moins sept votes "pour".
  3. un ratio de 2/1 de votes "pour"/"contre".
  4. Deux versions différentes de la même image ne peuvent pas être promues en même temps, mais seulement celle avec le plus grand score.

Contestations[edit]

Avec le temps, les critères d'évaluation évoluent, et il peut être décidé qu'une image qui était auparavant assez bonne pour être dans la liste ne peut plus l'être.

Pour qu'une image soit déchue, il faut qu'une majorité de 2/3 avec au moins 5 votes accepte de retirer l'image, autrement elle reste "remarquable". Pour voter, utiliser les modèles {{Keep}} (Symbol keep vote.svg Keep : mérite de rester "remarquable") ou {{Delist}} (Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist  : ne mérite plus le label).

Pour contester une image, copiez son nom avec le préfixe dans la boîte ci-dessous à la suite du texte déjà présent :


Vous devriez inclure les informations suivantes :

  • Informations sur l'origine de l'image (créateur, importateur).
  • Un lien vers le vote d'origine.
  • La raison pour laquelle vous contestez le label, avec votre signature.

Insérez ensuite un lien en haut de Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal.

With these silhouettes in the center we don't need redundant black parts to crush the view with excessive darkness. The two white vertical lines around the door are strange and make the composition complicated. Nothing is really sharp on the image and the children seem not in focus.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Good details, the day version with a sky a bit noise in 100 %, and the night version a irregular soft focus on the right border, however, photopollution is common on Shanghai. Also, the day version has a blurred ships on the left and right bottom that are distracting and the header of the Oriental Pearl Tower lost details. --Photographer 23:56, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
    Thanks for the support. I added a bit of NR on the first image. When correcting perspective for tall buildings, you inevitably end up stretching the top and shrinking the bottom, so unless you downsample the entire image the top sections will always be slightly less sharp at full resolution. -- King of ♠ 00:13, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
I underestand the point when you are corecting perspective (BTW, please add the panorama template to the images if its the case) and be careful when you are applying NR, its better apply a selective NR and not a general NR resulting on lost details. I find your pictures a well done work and my only critic is the ships with motion blur that could be solved taking a fast shoot combining this with a long exposure to later make the boat appear clear with another layer in photoshop --Photographer 00:24, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Not everything is tack sharp, but I like both photos enough to support them individually and as a set. These also merit VIC nomination, as the skyline will doubtless be different in x-number of years. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:54, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support the day version, neutral for the one at night. Impressive architecture, high resolution and nice composition on the left, but in the version at night I regret the colorful light reflection in the water was cut. Probably this choice was made to harmonize both with exactly the same framing, unfortunately the cut seems abrupt here, and visually it would certainly have been much more aesthetic with this special feature, missing -- Basile Morin (talk) 03:05, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

    • I'm not totally sure what halos you mean. The edges are a bit rounded and there is quite a strong sun shinning from the side (the picture was taken when sun was going down). So somewhere you can see tiny lines of the sunny sides that might remind of halos. --Podzemnik (talk) 06:40, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

    • I was struggling a bit with the centralization. I took lots of pictures from slightly different spots and all of them tend to look decentralized. In this picture I created a guideline heading from the top of the middle column corner to the bottom part of the stairs column. I believe that the columns are actually not straight and the stairs are not totally in the center. Here you can see that the columns (including the corner ones, see to one on the left) change their shape as their going up. But maybe I'm wrong and I just didn't find the right spot :) --Podzemnik (talk) 07:09, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

It was 1919 and a harmless little thing like this still had to be approved by the French.

Christ church or Christuskirche, Windhoek, Namibia.
  • Category: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Architecture/Religious buildings
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Christ church or Christuskirche, Windhoek, Namibia. The church, built beween 1907-1910 and designed by architect Gottlieb Redecker, was originally known as the Church of Peace as it was built following the wars between the Germans and the Khoikhoi, Herero, and Owambo. It was constructed from quartz sandstone mined from the vicinity and has a mixture of neo-Romanesque, Art Nouveau and Gothic revival influences. After the feedback I got in the just closed and failed FP nom of this subject, looks like this one could have a higher chance to pass the bar. All by me, Poco2 19:28, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

    Daniel: I've "cooled" the image a bit, reduced the higlights and cropped a bit on the left. Please, consider that this image spans over aprox. 200 degrees and therefore it's to expect that the dynamic range is pretty big with strong shadows and highlights. The same applies to the "sharpness". When taking an image like this you focus manually to a spot (in this case the other side of the river) so that the focus does not change from frame to frame (in that case you'd have problems to stitch the panorama or diferences from frame to frame would be visible). The tradeoff is that items that are either further or closer from the focus point would not get the same sharpness. Btw, the image is made of 13 frames and has 135 MPx --Poco2 10:16, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I respect your opinion about this picture. But I would like to give a little explanation. The European larix (Larix decidua) occurs in Central Europe especially in the Alps. We are nature lovers and love the Alps. We have been going on holiday for years. Rarely have we seen a larix (Larix decidua) with such a large bleeding wound against the trunk as the larix in this photo. The branch has been broken down to the outside of the core in the tree trunk. An ordinary photo that you can shoot regularly is not my opinion.--Famberhorst (talk) 17:02, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment We have similar Pinaceae family trees here in Finland, and I've seen similar wounds in them. The subject may be interesting, but the problem is more in the current presentation (crop and composition). --Msaynevirta (talk) 14:12, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Panther chameleon (Furcifer pardalis) female in Montagne d’Ambre National Park
  • tweaked a bit. Charles (talk) 17:43, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Our finest reptile photography includes habitat. What is the point in photographing one in the mountains of Madagascar, when the result looks like a pet in somoene's bedroom? The hard direct flash does it no favours either, resulting in over exposure and loss of three-dimensionality. -- Colin (talk) 17:34, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Still bearing a grudge from the 'flash can kill a chameleon' discussion. Sad. And of course it's not direct flash. Try looking at the shadow from the tail wrapped around the branch. Of course it's an artifical setting, but that doesn't stop it aspiring to be included in our finest reptile photography. --Charles (talk) 17:42, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Why should I bear a grudge? I seem to recall you got upset with The Photographer. Charles, this does you no favours. I commented on the photo, and I examined our collection of reptile FPs. I said the flash was direct, I didn't claim it was a ring flash. Any flash mounted a few inches from the centre of the camera produces that effect. Please Charles, go look at the link you added to our current FP reptiles. Ambient light, or merely using a little fill-flash would have included some habitat colours, but you went for tiny aperture, low ISO, fast shutter and a whopping big flash at a distance of 1.6m to compensate for your choice of settings. So the wood is blown and the background is lost. -- Colin (talk) 18:18, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
I don't recall you being with me when I took the picture and your analysis of my camera settings shows a very limited understanding of night-time wildlife photography. I chose to have a blackground. Charles (talk) 18:56, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Charles, first you transfer your grudge on to me (who has nothing to have a grudge about), then insult me. Your camera settings may well be for a chosen black background, if you say so, but they also required an unnecessarily bright flash to compensate, hence the over-exposed branch. That's basic photography, nature, night-time, or otherwise. My opinion stands, and since you once again seem to be more interested in personal attacks, than photography, I'm unwatching. -- Colin (talk) 19:19, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry but this is quite some level below the standards for Castles/Fortifications on Commons. I'm guessing you are using Lightroom's photo merge, rather than a dedicated package such as Hugin or PtGui. For architecture, these are essential in order to supply vertical alignment guidelines and appropriate projection adjustment. The horizon is titled strongly at both sides, the towers are all quite wonky, including the middle corner. The far left is blurred. Overall, it looks quite strongly vertically compressed. The light and shadow combination is unfortunate too. -- Colin (talk) 17:53, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

  • That's certainly not a drone nor a robot that uploaded this file on Commons. So the author should do as everyone usually do when checking their pictures, just fix the tilt by a simple rotation of the image, quick and easy step in post-process, and aesthetic touch to avoid a sea rocking like a supernatural phenomenon.

    Thanks for the support. I added a bit of NR on the first image. When correcting perspective for tall buildings, you inevitably end up stretching the top and shrinking the bottom, so unless you downsample the entire image the top sections will always be slightly less sharp at full resolution. -- King of ♠ 00:13, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
I underestand the point when you are corecting perspective (BTW, please add the panorama template to the images if its the case) and be careful when you are applying NR, its better apply a selective NR and not a general NR resulting on lost details. I find your pictures a well done work and my only critic is the ships with motion blur that could be solved taking a fast shoot combining this with a long exposure to later make the boat appear clear with another layer in photoshop --Photographer 00:24, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

    • I was struggling a bit with the centralization. I took lots of pictures from slightly different spots and all of them tend to look decentralized. In this picture I created a guideline heading from the top of the middle column corner to the bottom part of the stairs column. I believe that the columns are actually not straight and the stairs are not totally in the center. Here you can see that the columns (including the corner ones, see to one on the left) change their shape as their going up. But maybe I'm wrong and I just didn't find the right spot :) --Podzemnik (talk) 07:09, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

It was constructed from quartz sandstone mined from the vicinity and has a mixture of neo-Romanesque, Art Nouveau and Gothic revival influences.

    Daniel: I've "cooled" the image a bit, reduced the higlights and cropped a bit on the left. Please, consider that this image spans over aprox. 200 degrees and therefore it's to expect that the dynamic range is pretty big with strong shadows and highlights. The same applies to the "sharpness". When taking an image like this you focus manually to a spot (in this case the other side of the river) so that the focus does not change from frame to frame (in that case you'd have problems to stitch the panorama or diferences from frame to frame would be visible). The tradeoff is that items that are either further or closer from the focus point would not get the same sharpness.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Nothing to say against showing an animal in its natural environment, but in this case the subject is not well separated from the background without any need for it (IMHO), making it harder to see the quite interesting silouette of the bird. The worst part are feathers on the bottom of its beak that are of very similar tone as the water reflections behind it. E.g. a lower angle would have cleared the background up a lot and provided more presence. – LucasT 21:38, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I respect your opinion about this picture. But I would like to give a little explanation. The European larix (Larix decidua) occurs in Central Europe especially in the Alps. We are nature lovers and love the Alps. We have been going on holiday for years. Rarely have we seen a larix (Larix decidua) with such a large bleeding wound against the trunk as the larix in this photo. The branch has been broken down to the outside of the core in the tree trunk. An ordinary photo that you can shoot regularly is not my opinion.--Famberhorst (talk) 17:02, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

  • tweaked a bit. Charles (talk) 17:43, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Our finest reptile photography includes habitat. What is the point in photographing one in the mountains of Madagascar, when the result looks like a pet in somoene's bedroom? The hard direct flash does it no favours either, resulting in over exposure and loss of three-dimensionality. -- Colin (talk) 17:34, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Still bearing a grudge from the 'flash can kill a chameleon' discussion. Sad. And of course it's not direct flash. Try looking at the shadow from the tail wrapped around the branch. Of course it's an artifical setting, but that doesn't stop it aspiring to be included in our finest reptile photography. --Charles (talk) 17:42, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Why should I bear a grudge? I seem to recall you got upset with The Photographer. Charles, this does you no favours. I commented on the photo, and I examined our collection of reptile FPs. I said the flash was direct, I didn't claim it was a ring flash. Any flash mounted a few inches from the centre of the camera produces that effect. Please Charles, go look at the link you added to our current FP reptiles. Ambient light, or merely using a little fill-flash would have included some habitat colours, but you went for tiny aperture, low ISO, fast shutter and a whopping big flash at a distance of 1.6m to compensate for your choice of settings. So the wood is blown and the background is lost. -- Colin (talk) 18:18, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
I don't recall you being with me when I took the picture and your analysis of my camera settings shows a very limited understanding of night-time wildlife photography. I chose to have a blackground. Charles (talk) 18:56, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Charles, first you transfer your grudge on to me (who has nothing to have a grudge about), then insult me. Your camera settings may well be for a chosen black background, if you say so, but they also required an unnecessarily bright flash to compensate, hence the over-exposed branch. That's basic photography, nature, night-time, or otherwise. My opinion stands, and since you once again seem to be more interested in personal attacks, than photography, I'm unwatching. -- Colin (talk) 19:19, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

I'm guessing you are using Lightroom's photo merge, rather than a dedicated package such as Hugin or PtGui. For architecture, these are essential in order to supply vertical alignment guidelines and appropriate projection adjustment. The horizon is titled strongly at both sides, the towers are all quite wonky, including the middle corner. The far left is blurred. Overall, it looks quite strongly vertically compressed. The light and shadow combination is unfortunate too. -- Colin (talk) 17:53, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose 5 few years ago I've photographed also a Gamander Ehrenpreis, see: File:Gamander-Ehrenpreis.jpg. I think the detail quality of the nomineee here is not sufficient for an FP (compare with my photo). In 100% view the photo here looks somehow overprocessed, especially at the edge of the flower. --Tuxyso (talk) 19:39, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I do not know the picture of Tuxyso and at the moment I only view this candidate. The blossom is very detailed and sharp. And I like this composition with a sharp main focus and blurred rest. --Tozina (talk) 09:10, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per Colin; it seems too saturated for me. Sorry. Tournasol7 (talk) 00:34, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Saturation doesn't bother me so much (unsurprising) but it is horribly overprocessed ... just look at the edges of the petals. Daniel Case (talk) 04:45, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Daniel, I've reworked it. However, without changing the saturation. This saturation isn't more adjusted than in my other pictures too and I love it. Hope it's good now. --Hockei (talk) 16:31, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
