Candidare un immagine[edit]

Linee guida per candidare un'immagine[edit]

È importante leggere le linee guida prima di candidare un'immagine.

A seguito è riportato un riassunto dei punti essenziali per candidare e valutare le immagini candidate:

  • Risoluzione - Le fotografie con una risoluzione inferiore a 2 milioni di pixel vengono generalmente rifiutate e rimosse ad eccezione di motivi contrari di particolare importanza. Si noti che le immagini con risoluzione 1600 x 1200 hanno 1.92 Mpx, appena inferiore al limite minimo di 2Mpx.
Ricordiamo che le immagini caricate su Commons vengono visualizzate non solo su schermi tradizionali di PC ma sono utilizzate anche per stampa e visualizzazione su schermi ad alta risoluzione. Non possiamo certo prevedere quali tecnologie verranno utilizzate nel futuro quindi è importante che le immagini scelte per la vetrina abbiano una risoluzione quanto più alta è possibile.
  • Scansioni - È consigliabile seguire la guida alla scansione, che propone suggerimenti per l'ottenimento di immagini ottimali
  • Fuoco - ovviamente ogni oggetto significativo dell'immagine deve essere ben definito e a fuoco.
  • Primo piano e sfondo - Oggetti in primissimo piano o di sfondo possono distrarre dalla vista dal oggetto principale dell'immagine. È il caso di controllare se qualche elemento in primo piano non copra nessun elemento importante e che lo sfondo non distolga l'attenzione e renda confusa l'immagine (per esempio evitare che vi sia una luce forte alle spalle di un viso)
  • Qualità generale - le immagini candidate devono essere di alta qualità tecnica.
  • Le manipolazioni digitali non devono essere effettuate per ingannare, ma vanno usate solo limitatamente e con cura per correggere difetti fotografici. Le manipolazioni comunemente accettate sono il ritaglio e la correzione di prospettiva, focale, colore ed esposizione. Manipolazioni più estese, come può essere la rimozione di un elemento di distrazione dello sfondo, vanno chiaramente descritte nel testo di descrizione per mezzo del template {{Retouched picture}}. Manipolazioni non descritte o descritte in modo insufficiente non permettono la candidatura alla vetrina.
  • Valore - il nostro principale obiettivo è eleggere le immagini con il maggior valore rispetto a tutte le loro simili. Le immagini devono essere in qualche modo speciali, perciò fai attenzione:
    • quasi tutti i tramonti sono esteticamente piacevoli, infatti molte immagini sono simili alle altre,
    • gli scatti notturni sono gradevoli ma generalmente le foto scattate di giorno mostrano molti più dettagli,
    • non tutte le belle foto hanno in realtà un valore che non sia esclusivamente personale.

Per quanto riguarda l'aspetto tecnico abbiamo come parametri l'esposizione, la composizione, il controllo del movimento e la profondità di campo.

  • L'esposizione si riferisce alla combinazione tra tempo di esposizione e diaframma. Questa combinazione permette generalmente di avere una curva di tono che è in grado di rappresentare ombre e luci con un dettaglio accettabile. Questa curva viene detta latitudine di posa. Un'immagine può essere nella banda bassa, media o alta. Le fotocamere digitali (e le loro foto) hanno una latitudine di posa più stretta delle macchine a pellicola. La mancanza di dettagli nelle zone d'ombra non è necessariamente una caratteristica negativa. Infatti questa può essere parte dell'effetto desiderato, mentre ampie zone eccessivamente sovraesposte possono distrarre la vista.
  • La composizione si riferisce alla distribuzione degli elementi nell'immagine. La “Regola dei Terzi” è una buona linea guida per la composizione e eredita molto dagli studi di disegno. Il concetto principale considera l'immagine divisa con due linee orizzontali e due verticali, che dividono l'immagine in tre parti. Generalmente se l'oggetto viene centrato si ha un effetto poco interessante, mentre se l'oggetto viene posizionato in uno dei punti di interesse, ovvero l'intersezione delle quattro linee, si ottiene un effetto decisamente migliore. Le linee dell'orizzonte infatti non dovrebbero essere posizionate nel centro, perché taglierebbero la foto a metà; è invece preferibile scegliere una delle linee orizzontali. Complessivamente bisogna tendere a creare un'immagine dinamica.
  • Il controllo del movimento si riferisce al modo viene rappresentato il movimento nell'immagine. Il movimento può essere bloccato (seguito dalla fotocamera) oppure può essere lasciato scorrere, tuttavia l'oggetto principale dell'immagine deve essere visibile. Nessuna delle due tecniche è migliore dell'altra, la buona riuscita dipende esclusivamente dal tipo di effetto ricercato. Per esempio, fotografando una vettura da corsa che appare statica in relazione allo sfondo, che invece scorre sul retro, si ottiene l'oggetto principale in una condizione statica mentre lo sfondo crea il senso di movimento. (questa tecnica è chiamata "panning"). D'altra parte, fotografando un giocatore di basket in salto, bloccato in relazione a tutto il resto dello sfondo, si otterrebbe un buono scatto proprio per la posa innaturale.
  • La profondità di campo (PdC o DOF dall'inglese depth of field) è la distanza davanti e dietro il soggetto principale che appare nitida (a fuoco). Questo parametro viene scelto a seconda delle necessità di ogni immagine e può parimenti migliorare o peggiorare la qualità di una fotografia. Generalmente viene utilizzata una PdC ridotta per mettere al centro dell'attenzione il soggetto principale, separandolo da tutto il resto dello sfondo. Invece viene utilizzata una grande PdC per enfatizzare la profondità di un immagine. Gli obiettivi grandangolari in genere una grande PdC mentre i teleobiettivi ne hanno una decisamente ridotta. In gran parte la PdC dipende dall'apertura del diaframma: aumenta con il diminuire dell'apertura e viceversa.

Per quanto riguarda l'aspetto grafico prendiamo invece in considerazione nitidezza, profondità, colore, superficie, prospettiva, bilanciamento, proporzione, ecc.

  • La nitidezza si riferisce alle linee di contorno del soggetto principale.
  • La profondità si riferisce alla qualità dell'aspetto tridimensionale del soggetto. Ciò si ottiene soprattutto tramite un'adeguata illuminazione laterale (come quella della prima mattinata o del tardo pomeriggio) e non esclusivamente frontale, al fine di evitare l'appiattimento del soggetto.
  • Il colore è un elemento molto importante e non deve essere né troppo né poco saturo.
  • La superficie si riferisce alla qualità della superficie degli oggetti fotografati.
  • La prospettiva si riferisce all'angolazione dalla quale è stata scattata la fotografia. Essa crea una serie di rette immaginarie che seguono gli spigoli paralleli degli oggetti e si incontrano in un punto che può essere dentro o fuori l'immagine.
  • Il bilanciamento si riferisce alla disposizione degli oggetti nell'immagine e può essere equilibrato o porre maggior peso verso una direzione.
  • La proporzione si riferisce alla relazione tra le dimensioni degli oggetti all'interno dell'immagine. Generalmente si tende a rappresentare oggetti con ridotta relazione, ma una buona tecnica è quella di rappresentare gli oggetti di dimensioni minori in modo più esteso, contrariamente a quanto è in realtà. Per esempio, un piccolo fiore che viene rappresentato con le stesse dimensioni di una grande montagna: questa tecnica viene chiamata inversione di scala.
Ovviamente, non tutte le caratteristiche devono essere necessariamente presenti. Le immagini possono essere giudicate sia per una sola caratteristica che per diverse caratteristiche, anche contemporaneamente.
  • Significato simbolico o rilevanza particolare …Le guerre d'opinione possono iniziare!…. Va ricordato che una pessima fotografia di un soggetto difficilissimo da fotografare è sicuramente migliore di un'immagine ordinaria e tradizionale (come un comune tramonto).
Le immagini possono essere scelte da un fotografo o da un osservatore anche per motivi culturali, tenendo però sempre conto del contesto dello scatto e non di quello dell'osservatore. Un'immagine inoltre può "parlare" alle persone e avere la capacità di evocare emozioni, che tuttavia non devono essere necessariamente piacevoli.

Per ottimizzare le possibilità di successo delle candidature delle tue immagini è consigliabile leggere le linee guida complete.

Ogni votante è pregato di motivare il proprio voto con qualche parola, in particolar modo se si vota contro. Ricorda inoltre di aggiungere la tua firma (~~~~). I voti anonimi non sono accettati.

Candidare un'immagine alla rimozione dalla vetrina[edit]

Gli standard della vetrina cambiano col tempo. Può succedere che un'immagine che era stata eletta per la vetrina non sia più adatta agli standard attuali.

Questa lista è perciò composta dalle immagini considerate non più adatte a rimanere nella vetrina. Vota:

  • {{Mantenere}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep per far sì che l'immagine rimanga nella vetrina.
  • {{Rimuovere}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per far sì che l'immagine venga rimossa dalla vetrina.

Se consideri che un'immagine non rispetti più i criteri delle immagini in vetrina, candidala per la rimozione copiando il nome dell'immagine dentro questa casella di testo (includendo il prefisso dell' Image:) a seguito del testo già presente in essa:


Nella pagina appena creata includi:

  • Le informazioni sull'origine dell'immagine (autore dell'immagine, autore della candidatura);
  • Un collegamento all'iniziale candidatura per l'inserimento nella vetrina (che va inserito sotto ==Collegamenti== nella descrizione dell'immagine);
  • Il motivo per cui l'hai candidata per la rimozione dalla vetrina e il tuo Nome utente.

Dopo aver fatto ciò devi inserire manualmente un collegamento alla pagina creata all'inizio della lista di rimozione dalla vetrina.

Politica di elezione per la vetrina[edit]

Regole generali[edit]

  1. Il periodo di votazione è di 9 giorni completi, a partire dalla candidatura. I risultato verrà determinato alla fine di questo periodo. I voti aggiunti il decimo giorno o a seguito non verranno considerati.
  2. Sono benvenuti i contributori anonimi.
  3. I contributi di anonimi alle discussioni sono benvenuti.
  4. I voti di contributori anonimi non saranno accettati.
  5. La candidatura non conta come voto. Il voto di supporto va esplicitato.
  6. Gli autori delle candidature possono ritirare le loro immagini candidate in ogni momento. Questo si ottiene scrivendo semplicemente "I withdraw my nomination" (in inglese: ritiro la mia candidatura)
    o aggiungendo il testo {{withdraw|~~~~}}.
  7. Ricorda che l'obiettivo del progetto Wikimedia Commons è di costruire una raccolta di immagini utilizzabili da tutti i progetti Wikimedia, inclusi possibili progetti futuri. Perciò non bisogna pensare che questo sia una raccolta dedicata esclusivamente al progetto Wikipedia e per tanto le immagini non vanno valutate in funzione di ciò.
  8. Le immagini vengono rimosse dalla lista di candidature se non hanno voti a supporto (escluso quello dell'autore della candidatura) entro il quinto giorno dalla candidatura (La regola del quinto giorno)
  9. Le immagini dotate del template {{FPX}} non devono essere rimosse dalla lista entro le 48 ore successive al momento in cui è stato applicato il template, purchè non vi sia nessun voto a supporto oltre quello dell'autore della candidatura.

Regole di ammissione e rimozione dalla vetrina[edit]

Un'immagine candidata viene ammessa alla vetrina se si verificano le seguenti condizioni:

  1. La licenza è adeguata (ovviamente).
  2. Se ha almeno 5 voti a supporto.
  3. Se il rapporto tra voti pro/contro è almeno 2/1 (se ha due terzi di maggioranza).
  4. Non possono essere ammessi alla vetrina diverse versioni della stessa immagine, ne deve essere scelta una sola versione.

I criteri per la rimozione dalla vetrina sono gli stessi per l'ammissione ad essa, compreso il periodo di voto e la regola del quinto giorno (vedi nelle Regole generali).

Ogni utente esperto può portare a termine una votazione: per istruzioni su come compiere questa operazione vedi la guida per portare a termina la votazione.

Infine, sii cortese[edit]

Per piacere non dimenticare che l'immagine che stai giudicando è frutto del lavoro di qualcuno. Evita di usare frasi come è orribile: se devi opporti non fare spiacevoli considerazioni. Inoltre ricorda che è necessario scrivere in inglese se vuoi essere compreso dagli altri utenti e che il tuo utilizzo di questa lingua e quello degli altri utenti può comunque generare incomprensioni se non si ha un'ottima conoscenza, perciò scegli le parole con cura.

Buon voto… e ricorda che.... tutte le regole possono avere qualche eccezione.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose A bit small for the "new" FP standart not official, arbust distracting on foreground (note added) and composition problem (too hight angle shoot) --The Photographer 23:20, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your comments. I'm surprised to hear the opinion that a ~5 megapixel image of a small subject is too small. Nothing I can do about that (or the angle) now I suppose. I'd be happy to try cropping a bit if that's what this discussion yields, though. Maybe a bit less than the note says (such that the grass still kind of frames the subject, to the left/right and behind). Curious to get other thoughts. — Rhododendrites talk |  23:37, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Comparing your picture with images in the same FP subject, the smaller photos are at least 10 years older than this, of all the things that I told you that It's the only thing measurable, the rest is only a personal opinion humbly --The Photographer 23:46, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I also find the size a bit small (or just limit), especially considering the composition could be cut at the bottom and on the right -- Basile Morin (talk) 04:41, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support small but convincingly nice --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 05:36, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Mostly per The Photographer. The small size (and small subject within the frame) isn't an absolute fail for wildlife, but mainly that it gets no points for detail, resolution, when we're trying to work out what is exceptional here. If this was some rare species and the lens was already 400mm then I'd be more forgiving, but this is in a city garden. I don't think subject size is really a factor, just the appropriate choice of lens. Subject distance is generally more of a limitation, and our best wildlife photography often shows a good deal of effort to get close to the subject (and hours and hours of missed chances). The green shoots are also a bit distracting. And agree that getting down at the same height as the subject is often superior. -- Colin (talk) 07:31, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Mild Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Very good photo and worth nominating, but I ultimately oppose per others, mainly because of the size, but also for the other reasons cited. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:04, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

I went ahead and tried to remove them and uploaded another version here. I then reverted to your most recent edit. I should say that I did so fairly quickly and it's not perfect -- it's mainly to show that it's possible -- and if you like the change you may want to make it on your end with the raw file (it's just Lightroom's spot removal tool).

@Peulle: I checked again and it's not. What may be giving you that impression is that I wasn't exactly on the center axis as I took the photo. Daniel Case (talk) 04:02, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
That might be it, yes. I'm checking the horizontals and that's when I see that things on the left aren't lining up with the right. I don't see any problems with the verticals, though.--Peulle (talk) 15:54, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Beautiful photo, especially the glass roof. Unfortunately three people in the front are disturbing the composition too much (especially the boy in the left corner) --Michielverbeek (talk) 22:04, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
@Michielverbeek: Usually I roll my eyes at "Ewww! People" opposes to things like this but I admit with this one you may have a point. I will see if Peulle's right about the tilt (I don't think so, but you never know) and probably crop the people mostly out so all you see is tops of heads. Would that work better? Daniel Case (talk) 22:10, 14 July 2018 (UTC) I don't think the people problem is repairable. I guess it would have been better if you would take this photo some seconds before or after --Michielverbeek (talk) 20:52, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose There are many similar pictures from the gallery. I don't think this is outstanding.--Ermell (talk) 19:50, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Cut feet and distracting head seen from behind in the foreground. Also I agree with Peulle there's a small tilt (fixable) visible on the left side with this part of the building being not perfectly vertical. The roof is wonderful, but unfortunately we can't cut the image over the crowd, so we really have to compose with these people walking. In this kind of situation, I usually use a tripod and wait quite long, until an interesting configuration occurs, neutral or special (extra value if someone creates something). But that's not easy, and subject to luck. Here I'm bothered by the crowded bottom.

    Perhaps we'll just have to agree to disagree then. In my opinion scenes sometimes do need to be brightened from what the eye sees; for example, I've found that the optimal time to photograph during the blue hour comes 5-10 minutes after the optimal time for viewing the scene with the naked eye, using a significantly longer exposure of course. -- King of ♠ 03:25, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose A bit small for the "new" FP standart not official, arbust distracting on foreground (note added) and composition problem (too hight angle shoot) --The Photographer 23:20, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your comments. I'm surprised to hear the opinion that a ~5 megapixel image of a small subject is too small. Nothing I can do about that (or the angle) now I suppose. I'd be happy to try cropping a bit if that's what this discussion yields, though. Maybe a bit less than the note says (such that the grass still kind of frames the subject, to the left/right and behind). Curious to get other thoughts. — Rhododendrites talk |  23:37, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Comparing your picture with images in the same FP subject, the smaller photos are at least 10 years older than this, of all the things that I told you that It's the only thing measurable, the rest is only a personal opinion humbly --The Photographer 23:46, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I also find the size a bit small (or just limit), especially considering the composition could be cut at the bottom and on the right -- Basile Morin (talk) 04:41, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support small but convincingly nice --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 05:36, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Mostly per The Photographer. The small size (and small subject within the frame) isn't an absolute fail for wildlife, but mainly that it gets no points for detail, resolution, when we're trying to work out what is exceptional here. If this was some rare species and the lens was already 400mm then I'd be more forgiving, but this is in a city garden. I don't think subject size is really a factor, just the appropriate choice of lens. Subject distance is generally more of a limitation, and our best wildlife photography often shows a good deal of effort to get close to the subject (and hours and hours of missed chances). The green shoots are also a bit distracting. And agree that getting down at the same height as the subject is often superior. -- Colin (talk) 07:31, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Mild Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Very good photo and worth nominating, but I ultimately oppose per others, mainly because of the size, but also for the other reasons cited. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:04, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

  • @Peulle, GerifalteDelSabana, Daniel Case: No, it's not an artificial background, just grass that's way out of focus because of the 600mm focal length.

@Peulle: I checked again and it's not. What may be giving you that impression is that I wasn't exactly on the center axis as I took the photo. Daniel Case (talk) 04:02, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
That might be it, yes. I'm checking the horizontals and that's when I see that things on the left aren't lining up with the right. I don't see any problems with the verticals, though.--Peulle (talk) 15:54, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Beautiful photo, especially the glass roof. Unfortunately three people in the front are disturbing the composition too much (especially the boy in the left corner) --Michielverbeek (talk) 22:04, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
@Michielverbeek: Usually I roll my eyes at "Ewww! People" opposes to things like this but I admit with this one you may have a point. I will see if Peulle's right about the tilt (I don't think so, but you never know) and probably crop the people mostly out so all you see is tops of heads. Would that work better? Daniel Case (talk) 22:10, 14 July 2018 (UTC) I don't think the people problem is repairable.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Cut feet and distracting head seen from behind in the foreground. Also I agree with Peulle there's a small tilt (fixable) visible on the left side with this part of the building being not perfectly vertical. The roof is wonderful, but unfortunately we can't cut the image over the crowd, so we really have to compose with these people walking. In this kind of situation, I usually use a tripod and wait quite long, until an interesting configuration occurs, neutral or special (extra value if someone creates something). But that's not easy, and subject to luck. Here I'm bothered by the crowded bottom. Not enough free space on the floor visually to breath and feel an elegant composition -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:40, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

    Perhaps we'll just have to agree to disagree then. In my opinion scenes sometimes do need to be brightened from what the eye sees; for example, I've found that the optimal time to photograph during the blue hour comes 5-10 minutes after the optimal time for viewing the scene with the naked eye, using a significantly longer exposure of course. -- King of ♠ 03:25, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Today another female emerged and the male returned to mate with her. I captured the head profile of male too. Jee 15:12, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support If I had to do something it will be decrease vibrancy and increase saturation in the same proportion (e.g. vibrancy =-15 saturation =+15), result = the colours of the butterfly become more dynamic and more prominent compared to green foliage.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Note: it was a deliberate choice to visualize the pistil and stamens. And not the entire flower. Dan was in my opinion lost the effect.--Famberhorst (talk) 16:52, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral - also going neutral. I've come back to it a couple times, and just not sure. I really like the stamens delicately rolling out, on the darker background, but the crop is really hard to get past. — Rhododendrites talk |  22:32, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
