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.

Puoi inoltre evidenziare che l'immagine non ha possibilità di essere eletta con il template {{FPX|motivo}}, inserendo al posto di motivo le ragioni per cui è chiaramente inaccettabile per la vetrina.

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.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Putting the snide comment to one side, if you were that close to other nesting birds then your behaviour is not as it should be. We need to respect the wildlife we photogrpah. Charlesjsharp (talk) 21:39, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
  • @Charlesjsharp: This is quite a severe accusation which you please provide evidence for. I was not closer than for other photos -- to say exactly, this is a national park where you have to stay in the car, and nothing else did I. If the bird was sitting closer to the road than it normally should, that was definitely its "choice". --A.Savin 21:45, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

"easy bird to photograph closer": I disagree, where I live it is not easy to go close to those birds, this photo was taken in his natural habitat and when you install material they go away, so this one is taken without tripod. Furthermore if is "so easy" to photograph I wonder why this is the bigger sized image (and from far) within our FPs of the same genus. And I wonder too why there is not one of your images there, but that is likely too easy for you. Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:05, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
I correct: there is one where the bird is bigger, but I still disagree that it's easy to get close. Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:27, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

  • GA candidate.svg Weak support One of the most interesting “Mariensäulen” (columns with statues of Saint Mary), and the perspective is nice. However, as noted before, the sky could be more interesting, and the contrast is high, making the shadows almost black. Maybe the overall impression could be improved by some careful changes in the colour balance – the stone appears rather cold; but at 10 a.m. in July the light is cold or “bluish”, and often it is hard to get satisfying colours in post-processing from photos taken at that time. Therefore it would be great if you could repeat this photo at another time in the year and of the day with softer light and warmer colours. No offence, --Aristeas (talk) 10:01, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

    Llez, Ikan Kekek: I've updated the description page with the information here (that's something I eventually always do) and also added there and here the age (along with the epoch). Regarding Cyclolites vs Cunnolites I'm a bit confused. As you can see in the file history I actually uploaded it first as Cyclolites (without an "h") ellipticus but then figured out that on Commons the synonym Cunnolites was used, so I renamed it. Should I then rename my file back and all others along with the categories? Poco a poco (talk) 22:20, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support As Cunnolites elliptica is a category in commons, it would be a lot of work to create a new category, transfer all pictures and rename the files (I also would not rename a file during a nomination, too). I propose therefore to add in the file description "...a fossil of Cunnolites elliptica ( = Cyclolites ellipticus Lamarck, 1801) found...", I think, this is the easiest way to solve the problem. --Llez (talk) 05:15, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Naturally in product photography the customers often cry for the most striking lighting; but not always: for some kinds of products, especially technical components, we needed to resort to neutral lighting in order to make all features of the product easily recognizable. If even in product photography neutral lighting can be necessary, it is IMHO even more appropriate for encyclopedic illustrations. --Aristeas (talk) 09:18, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

  • JukoFF, Ikan is not asking you to magnify or enlarge the photo, he wants to know what the magnification ratio is. You misunderstood. I guess it is about x50(?) :-) --Cart (talk) 21:51, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

  • It's just a guesstimation. You start seeing the twisted ribbon shape of cotton fibers at around x50 so this could be even higher. --Cart (talk) 22:30, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm not an expert in fibres under a microscope, but this looks like artificial fibre, and two separate threads woven together, rather than a dyed cotton thread. It may be "denim coloured" fabric, but it isn't cotton denim. -- Colin (talk) 19:06, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
    • Have you seen cotton denim under the microscope before? :) JukoFF (talk) 20:38, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
  • This looks just like cotton fiber. [4] Even the dye looks right. Indigo will stay on the surface of natural fibers. That is why you can stonewash a pair of jeans to rub away the dye. Most artificial fibers have the color absorbed into the very fiber. I have done a lot of dyeing in my days, especially indigo, and this looks ok to me. Oh, and btw, denim can be thread dyed or fabric dyed. Some denims are woven from indigo dyed and white thread for a different look. The jeans I'm wearing right now are woven just like in the photo. --Cart (talk) 21:51, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Cart, I removed your second link as my antivirus blocked it as a site containing malware (possibly hijacked). Ok, so the cotton fibre can be more regular than I expected, but I'm still confused (a) that it appears see-through and (b) that it is in fact in colour given that when I google "cotton fiber microscope" I get scanning electron microscope images of similar thread, which of course have no colour. Btw, as this note and this note, a description like "50x" only makes sense for images like this if you specify the size of the image you are looking at (e.g. 8"x10" print or longest side 25mm). Why can't I find similar pictures to this? -- Colin (talk) 18:41, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Colin, cotton fibers are actually tranclusent, almost transparent, as are most fibers when you get down on a microscopic level. Most photographers take advantage of this and shoot cotton fiber in polarizing light, just like you have done with clear plastic objects. Google "cotton fiber microscope polarizing", or even alamy and you get a nice selection of photos.
When identifying fibers, you can't go by if they are transparent or opaque to determine if they are natural or manmade. General rule of thumb: If they have a complex structure, are twisted or have scales, they are grown (by animals or plants). If they are long smooth and look like some sort of pasta, they are extruded. Manmade fibers are extruded in some shape and so are silk and spiderweb (silkworms and spider don't "grow" their thread, they extrude it). This page sums it up rather well. --Cart (talk) 19:18, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per Podzemnik in the previous nomination: the lighting is bad. In the previous nom, the lighting is described as "a ring light on the lens and 2 additional sources on the side". The ring light is a mistake IMO, and the left/right lights shouldn't be equal. The lighting should emphasise the form (twisting round shape, with some parts closer and some further) and texture (a gritty quartz-like stone?) and neither are apparent at all. Despite the 39MP there is very little surface detail apparent and it sort of looks like an unsharpened 18MP image that has been upsized. -- Colin (talk) 17:42, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Compare File:Philips Series 7000 shaver head.jpg, which is lit from a flash aimed at the ceiling and so providing a soft light from above. The curved form of the blue discs and the silver edging is immediately apparent: you don't have to know or guess the shape. The textured metallic-effect plastic is glitteringly rough against the smooth metal centre and all the folds of the metal grill are clear to the eye. -- Colin (talk) 17:54, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment 1) The lighting on left and right wasn't equal 2) without a ligth source at the front the answer here would have been without any doubt "bad lighting" the object is in shadow. The image is IMHO sharp, specially if I compare it to other noms lately of clearly less MP and where the statement would be "although it's a 25 MP image it sort of looks like an unsharpened 10MP image". Lighting on the top doesn't make any sense here as the interesting view is not from the top but from the side. Poco a poco (talk) 13:44, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
I recommend "Light ― Science and Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting". The 6th edition is due out in April.
Poco, I'd like to know why you (and any of those who supported) think this is among the finest images on Commons and has "wow". Corprolites are extremely common: they were once mined on an industrial scale, as fertilizer. I recommend visiting the Poozeum for all you could possibly want to learn. This example appears unexceptional, without notable inclusions that might enlighten us as to the source animal or their diet. Image-wise, we have a beige blob that has been unimaginatively placed on a piece of white paper, and lit by exactly the wrong light. Although it is focus stacked, that is nothing special these days, and a convex solid shape is the easiest subject to stack. The image may be 39MP but that's just a lot of pixels of beige and grey, not herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically....
As a specimen photo, I suggest trying to photograph it isolated without any visible support/base. Many images of fossils this colour are on a black background, rather than white, which should be achieved with lighting/backgrounds in the scene rather than with the scissors in Photoshop. The lighting needs to bring out the twisting form, and since one bit of this poo looks the same as ever other bit, we don't need or want to see all of it as evenly lit as every other bit. You could, for example, just light the top twisting portion and leave the bottom fading out dark. It may not, to be honest, be worth the effort. -- Colin (talk) 15:42, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for the book hint, will look into it.
Regarding your comment about how common coprolites are or not, I don't believe that you are objective and fair. We have never had something like this on Commons, why that if they are so common? It's like if you tell me that a candidate of mine is not worthy because there are millions of sardines or crabs. The point to me is that so far non of us came accross something like that and photographed it with the target of achieving good quality (or maybe it's hard to find good coprolite images with a free license on the web). You can add so many links you want, still coprolites are underrepresented here.
The candidate above is not isolated, there's a visible support and I didn't use any scissors from Photoshop, indeed I didn't even use Photoshop. Regading the choice whether the background should be black or white I took an shot in both and opted to propose this one to FPC but I just uploaded for you the version with black background, see here, you like it? Poco a poco (talk) 16:27, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
I didn't say this candidate used Photoshop; I was saying how an on on-black isolated photo should IMO be done. I know you have uploaded images that do use Photoshop scissors and I don't think that is FP level photography. The other image doesn't have a black background: it is grey. But can you (and others) not see how in places the lighting in the other photo is superior. Look at the bottom left and along the top. The glancing light brings out the shape of the stone, where in this nom the shape and bumps are virtually hidden. I think it is a shame the other photo doesn't show the twisting form, for it is that form that makes it clear to be a coprolite rather than random lumps of rock.
There are lots of things that are common that Commons lacks a huge quantity of images of. That doesn't change them from being common. I imagine nearly all households own a steam iron, yet there are about the same number of photos of such as there are of coprolites on Commons. There are millions of Philips electric shavers in the world yet we have only a handful of images. Does that permit me to take a very ordinary photo in bad light and expect a gold star? So, your argument doesn't hold examination. We are here to judge if it is among the best photos on Commons, and has "wow". By that standard, I'm judging this as a studio photo taken at home with ample opportunity to select a visually interesting subject and to take it with the highest level of skill and technical achievement. We have hundreds of thousands of professionally photographed museum exhibits on Commons, why are we giving a star to a beige blob on a piece of paper? Well we know why, and it is nothing to do with the photograph. -- Colin (talk) 18:40, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry. The main fruit photo could I think do with being less evenly lit. You can tell it is round because of the two highlight spots, the rightmost of which brings out some texture, but I think the form (round fruit) and texture (pimples) could have been much clearer with some experimentation of light. The texture on the two segments is fine, if a little bright. I'd probably not oppose given the degree of support so far, but for the second photo, which is simply too bright and lacking detail as a result. It also doesn't work as a "set" for me because of the totally different background/surfaces. I'm don't think the harsh contrast between the over-brightly lit flesh and a black background and a strange textured black surface is a good combination. If just the first photo was nominated, I'd go neutral, especially since it provides the outside and inside aspects all in one image. -- Colin (talk) 17:14, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Putting the snide comment to one side, if you were that close to other nesting birds then your behaviour is not as it should be. We need to respect the wildlife we photogrpah. Charlesjsharp (talk) 21:39, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
  • @Charlesjsharp: This is quite a severe accusation which you please provide evidence for. I was not closer than for other photos -- to say exactly, this is a national park where you have to stay in the car, and nothing else did I. If the bird was sitting closer to the road than it normally should, that was definitely its "choice". --A.Savin 21:45, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

"easy bird to photograph closer": I disagree, where I live it is not easy to go close to those birds, this photo was taken in his natural habitat and when you install material they go away, so this one is taken without tripod. Furthermore if is "so easy" to photograph I wonder why this is the bigger sized image (and from far) within our FPs of the same genus. And I wonder too why there is not one of your images there, but that is likely too easy for you. Christian Ferrer (talk) 20:05, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

  • GA candidate.svg Weak support One of the most interesting “Mariensäulen” (columns with statues of Saint Mary), and the perspective is nice. However, as noted before, the sky could be more interesting, and the contrast is high, making the shadows almost black. Maybe the overall impression could be improved by some careful changes in the colour balance – the stone appears rather cold; but at 10 a.m. in July the light is cold or “bluish”, and often it is hard to get satisfying colours in post-processing from photos taken at that time. Therefore it would be great if you could repeat this photo at another time in the year and of the day with softer light and warmer colours. No offence, --Aristeas (talk) 10:01, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

    Llez, Ikan Kekek: I've updated the description page with the information here (that's something I eventually always do) and also added there and here the age (along with the epoch). Regarding Cyclolites vs Cunnolites I'm a bit confused. As you can see in the file history I actually uploaded it first as Cyclolites (without an "h") ellipticus but then figured out that on Commons the synonym Cunnolites was used, so I renamed it. Should I then rename my file back and all others along with the categories? Poco a poco (talk) 22:20, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support As Cunnolites elliptica is a category in commons, it would be a lot of work to create a new category, transfer all pictures and rename the files (I also would not rename a file during a nomination, too). I propose therefore to add in the file description "...a fossil of Cunnolites elliptica ( = Cyclolites ellipticus Lamarck, 1801) found...", I think, this is the easiest way to solve the problem. --Llez (talk) 05:15, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

  • JukoFF, Ikan is not asking you to magnify or enlarge the photo, he wants to know what the magnification ratio is. You misunderstood. I guess it is about x50(?) :-) --Cart (talk) 21:51, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment If you're confident it's around 50x, give or take, we can add that information to the file description and hope Mr. Klepnev edits it to 49x or whatever later this year. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:23, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
  • It's just a guesstimation. You start seeing the twisted ribbon shape of cotton fibers at around x50 so this could be even higher. --Cart (talk) 22:30, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm not an expert in fibres under a microscope, but this looks like artificial fibre, and two separate threads woven together, rather than a dyed cotton thread. It may be "denim coloured" fabric, but it isn't cotton denim. -- Colin (talk) 19:06, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
    • Have you seen cotton denim under the microscope before? :) JukoFF (talk) 20:38, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
  • This looks just like cotton fiber. [8] Even the dye looks right. Indigo will stay on the surface of natural fibers. That is why you can stonewash a pair of jeans to rub away the dye. Most artificial fibers have the color absorbed into the very fiber. I have done a lot of dyeing in my days, especially indigo, and this looks ok to me. Oh, and btw, denim can be thread dyed or fabric dyed. Some denims are woven from indigo dyed and white thread for a different look. The jeans I'm wearing right now are woven just like in the photo. --Cart (talk) 21:51, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Cart, I removed your second link as my antivirus blocked it as a site containing malware (possibly hijacked). Ok, so the cotton fibre can be more regular than I expected, but I'm still confused (a) that it appears see-through and (b) that it is in fact in colour given that when I google "cotton fiber microscope" I get scanning electron microscope images of similar thread, which of course have no colour. Btw, as this note and this note, a description like "50x" only makes sense for images like this if you specify the size of the image you are looking at (e.g. 8"x10" print or longest side 25mm). Why can't I find similar pictures to this? -- Colin (talk) 18:41, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Colin, cotton fibers are actually tranclusent, almost transparent, as are most fibers when you get down on a microscopic level. Most photographers take advantage of this and shoot cotton fiber in polarizing light, just like you have done with clear plastic objects. Google "cotton fiber microscope polarizing", or even alamy and you get a nice selection of photos.
When identifying fibers, you can't go by if they are transparent or opaque to determine if they are natural or manmade. General rule of thumb: If they have a complex structure, are twisted or have scales, they are grown (by animals or plants). If they are long smooth and look like some sort of pasta, they are extruded. Manmade fibers are extruded in some shape and so are silk and spiderweb (silkworms and spider don't "grow" their thread, they extrude it). This page sums it up rather well. --Cart (talk) 19:18, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Beautiful. What is the texture we're seeing below the diamond? The background object, I guess, but because it's notably wavy and therefore calls attention to itself, I think it should be identified. (Also, very minor point, but wouldn't the relevant category be diamonds, rather than gemstones?) -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:45, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Maybe we should reconsider these nominations at that time, when the information I'm asking for could be added? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:08, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Why? We judge the quality of an illustration, not the description of that illustration, don't we? JukoFF (talk) 18:31, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

    • Seven Pandas, it wouldn't be the first time I demonstrate my ignorance on these pages, but my understanding is that we are seeing the diamond bombarded by electrons in a scanning electron microscope and itself glowing these colours (cathodoluminescence). Therefore, the lighting here is literally the subject and if you don't like how diamonds cathodoluminescence, you'll have to have a word with God about it :-). -- Colin (talk) 14:24, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I love this and consider it an FP, but I sure as hell hope my questions are answered when this user returns, because it's a problem to have scientific images that aren't sufficiently explained. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:46, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Michiel. Beautiful motif and a good photo; just not special enough for FP. But I would encourage you to continue to take photos of this motif if you have the opportunity, because an FP is certainly possible under the right conditions. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:50, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Also, Marc-Lautenbacher, can you please fix the format of your nomination? This would presumably be Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Natural#Canada, but check the categories under COM:FP, and make sure you have a blue link that goes to the right place when you're done. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:55, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thank you. I imagine some bills' designs haven't changed since 1945. I still would prefer a digital restoration, though. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:26, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Its a state-issued document, and any digital manipulation would be violating normal archival customs. The banknote is unique, with its own serial number, and i believe that any restoration in such a case should be only done to the original document. --Andrei (talk) 21:13, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
