Guida[edit]

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 support vote.svg Support Railroad & Ferry Depot Museum in Tiburon, California, looking out to San Francisco Bay. The museum is on the National Register of Historic Places, but I don't think the building is likely to wow many people; it's the composition of the image that I quite like, and the slice of the San Francisco Bay area that it captures (Angel Island is in the immediate background, and you can see the city skyline in the far distance, behind the little sailboat). — Rhododendrites talk |  23:03, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

(A bit brighter wouldn't hurt either, but I'm mostly opposing because of the composition.) -- King of ♠ 00:36, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
I can support either crop but I think the new one is slightly better. PumpkinSky talk 02:17, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
That would be better, yes. It's still a little bit underexposed (the whites should be close to 255 without exceeding it), and the technical issues mentioned by Julian should be fixed. -- King of ♠ 04:22, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Johann Jaritz (talk) 02:09, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support contingent on a few improvements. I do mostly like the composition (the sailboat is a small but excellent touch) but as KoH says, the grass near the bottom could be cropped out without cutting into the bottom of the closest bollard... content-aware fill may do a decent job of cloning it out without cropping. Also, I would run it through lens profile corrections to remove color fringing, vignetting, and minor distortion. –Juliancolton | Talk 02:14, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
  • @Juliancolton, King of Hearts: It's an Olympus MFT camera, so lens corrections are built into the raw file (discovered this when trying to figure out where the profile for it was in Lightroom). That said, I've gone in and done some manual defringing. Also did a bit of a perspective adjustment to address the distortion issue you mentioned. That necessitated a bit different crop. Brightened a little bit, and applied a minor vignetting correction. The result is here (again, I've reverted to the original for FPC purposes, but will change if there's a broad sense this new version is an improvement). Thanks for your feedback. — Rhododendrites talk |  06:13, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I do agree with KoH actually, and as you already mention above, Rhododendrites, the object is not really wowing (old/historic in the States it not surely not what we'd consider old/historic in Europe). I believe that I'd liked to see more of the bay on the right. With this composition both the bay and the building are fighting for attention. There is also visible green CA, that should be removed --Poco2 17:54, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

  • I Symbol support vote.svg Support this one. The form is great, like a sculptor who creates a great bas relief with found objects. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:21, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry but as I hinted last time, I'm bored already. And the rather harsh lighting isn't pleasing to my eye. It's a random piece of bark, no different to the bark 5cm further up the tree or 5cm further down, or to the left or right, or to the next tree, and so on. So for me just an example of texture in nature and close-up photography. So personally I'd be off trying to take a close-up photo of something different rather than another bark.
  • Also, the JPG is in "ProPhotoRGB" colourspace. Never use this for JPG. Nobody has a "ProPhotoRGB" monitor to see it on, and in fact nobody has ProPhotoRGB eyes as the colourspace includes many colours that are theoretically/mathematical rather than physically possible. The 8-bit colour of a JPG can't handle ProPhotoRGB with fidelity. It is intended as an intermediate working colour-space for doing colour manipulation in Photoshop on 16-bit TIFF files. You should use sRGB for internet JPGs. Also, unless you own a wide-gamut monitor, and have setup your software and operating system and monitor settings to take advantage of it, I'd strongly recommend using sRGB for the intermediate files too, as many software tools ignore or strip out colourspace details, running the risk that you end up with the wrong colours. -- Colin (talk) 08:05, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support I agree with Ikan Kekek the relief textures and large close up depth of field are enchanting. HalfGig talk 11:06, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Taking Colin's point about the colorspace (where does it say this, though? All I see in the metadata is "uncalibrated"), I still like the texture and depth. Daniel Case (talk) 14:40, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose If you will nominate all your bark pictures it is very hard to pick out the best one. I'm afraid that's not very exciting.--Ermell (talk) 21:15, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question @Ermell: For one thing, this is a different species. So by using the same logic as you we shouldn't be able to have multiple FPs of those moth and butterfly photos that are all shot and/or mounted the same way, we shouldn't have a FP of a Mercedes E-class if we have an FP of a Mercedes C-class (or whatever make of car), if we have an FP of one Medieval German church we can't have an FP of another one, etc etc usw usw. Because this is basically what you're saying. We even have FPs of the same species and these two bark photos are not the same species and a totally different motif. Your oppose rationale is nothing but a hypocritical double-standard and as far as I'm concerned it is not a valid rational. What's good for the goose should be good for the gander but here it clearly isn't. These double standard rationals at FPC need to stop here and now. So which German church FPs are you going to put up for delisting since by your logic we should only have one German church FP, one moth\butterfly FP shot and mounted the same, one bark photo regardless of the species, one flower photo regardless of species, etc? Maybe I'll start opposing all the German church and mountain FPs because I'm bored with them and don't feel like picking out the best one. PumpkinSky talk 21:28, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment@PumpkinSky: I'm sorry if the picture didn't immediately show that this is a different species. It is in the nature of things that it is more difficult to depict tree bark in an interesting way than churches, which do not necessarily have to be German. To be precise, I just don't find this picture interesting enough for FP. You should not react so irritated to justified criticism just try to improve your pictures here is where it worked.--Ermell (talk) 22:12, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment@Ermell: Then that's what you should have said, not say we can we can only have one bark photo, period, of any kind. This was not justified criticism, it was a cop out on your part. This is clearly labled Pinus palustris not Pinus taeda, if you'd looked. Have you ever opposed because there's already a flower photo? I doubt it. I've seen this many times, different rules for different photos or whatever. We can have multiple photos of a bird species but only one of bark? What sense does that make? None. I'm done with the double standards, hypocrisy, and other things I have seen here. I'm done with Commons. PumpkinSky talk 22:24, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Jebulon compared to last shots, i think your monitor isnt set correct. Shots are dark, colors dull. Something might be wrong. Laptop ?--Mile (talk) 11:01, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Mile, thanks for advice. But I watch my pictures on two monitors, one MAC27 at home, and one PC19 at work. And I don't see what you say. I don't understand really what "dull" mean in this case. The fact is that the light is very harsh in summer in Greece, and I used a polarizing filter. Maybe there is something on that side. Anyway, even if I disagree with you for the most part, thanks again for interest and help.--Jebulon (talk) 14:56, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Jebulon, I think you are right that the polarization filter is what is causing the problem. From what I know, strong, harsh light is not usually a reason to use such a filter. It is more designed to get rid of reflections on surfaces. I think stong light is better to control by altering the APEX exposure bias (say -0,7 or so) and fix things later in post-processing. I recently did a test myself to see how a polarizing filter altered a scene and the result looks a bit like your photo. I shot the exact same scene with and without a filter on a very bright and sunny day. I think it's a matter of taste which version you prefer. --cart-Talk 17:01, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

  • @Benh, PetarM, Jebulon, W.carter: If I may offer my very humble opinion on polarizing filters...and I readily admit I don't have the knowledge or experience you all have, but I like my circular polarizing filters. In my experience, they can cut sunlight, affect colors---making them brighter or darker depending on where the sun is and where you turn the filter to, and cut reflections. See [1] and [2]. Just my two cents. PumpkinSky talk 01:51, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Something like that. You also loose some 1/3-half of stop. Checked EXIF of Jebulon shot. Focal 54 mm, Manual exposure, 1/60 sec, f/10, ISO 50. I would say, if you got best PL, you might loose in this Manualising. Automatic isnt that stupid, sometimes is better to leave it. I would say isnt sharp due to large time, i doubt its was on tripod. Tint +6 (i never saw od daylight that much), Vibrance +34, Blacks +28, Clarity +41, Luminance Adjustment Blue: -17. I think its more spoiled in software, with losing sharpness with handmoving (in case you got best and expencive PL), otheriwse add PL in it. --Mile (talk) 08:09, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Poco and Hockei. An FP can be taken from this angle, I believe. And in this light. But polarizing the whole image was probably too much. I might've gone with a GND, or used the sea from the polarized image with the land from an unfiltered one and, perhaps, GND'd sky. But that might have been too much manipulation for some people.

Kosar (Platalea leucorodia) is a rare bird that breaks within the Danube Biosphere Reserve." What does "breaks" mean? Rests during its yearly migration? Or does it simply mean that's where the birds live? Commons search is once again hanging for me, so that I can't see what other FPs we might have of this bird. Why does Commons search hang so much?

The interior of basilica, built in Gothic Revival style, is impressive with vivid colors, stars and filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. It was built between 1823 and 1829 after a design of James O'Donnell and it has become one of the landmarks of the city. All by me, Poco2 06:27, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

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

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

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I've uploaded a new version of the series with less saturation and exposure, the difference should be visible but not dramatic. I've also removed the pulpit picture from the series, I agree with the comments in that case. David, the dynamic range in the church was considerable, my darkest frames do in fact have some overexposed dots (lamps) but not in the altar. Poco2 18:55, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
    • It's normal to have blown highlights in the lamps. It's nearly impossible to process lamps properly anyway from my experience, because Lightroom doesn't actually provide enough control to reduce the highlights enough - partly due to the sliders not going far enough, and partly because the processing engine seems to have trouble with extreme highlight reduction. So if there was no overexposure in the altar then it was just processed too brightly I think. At least no information was lost, you just needed to reduce the luminosity a bit. I think it's an improvement now, the altar's colours look more natural and the exposure looks closer to natural. Diliff (talk) 08:03, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

I do mostly like the composition (the sailboat is a small but excellent touch) but as KoH says, the grass near the bottom could be cropped out without cutting into the bottom of the closest bollard... content-aware fill may do a decent job of cloning it out without cropping. Also, I would run it through lens profile corrections to remove color fringing, vignetting, and minor distortion. –Juliancolton | Talk 02:14, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
  • @Juliancolton, King of Hearts: It's an Olympus MFT camera, so lens corrections are built into the raw file (discovered this when trying to figure out where the profile for it was in Lightroom). That said, I've gone in and done some manual defringing. Also did a bit of a perspective adjustment to address the distortion issue you mentioned. That necessitated a bit different crop. Brightened a little bit, and applied a minor vignetting correction. The result is here (again, I've reverted to the original for FPC purposes, but will change if there's a broad sense this new version is an improvement).

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry but as I hinted last time, I'm bored already. And the rather harsh lighting isn't pleasing to my eye. It's a random piece of bark, no different to the bark 5cm further up the tree or 5cm further down, or to the left or right, or to the next tree, and so on. So for me just an example of texture in nature and close-up photography. So personally I'd be off trying to take a close-up photo of something different rather than another bark.
  • Also, the JPG is in "ProPhotoRGB" colourspace. Never use this for JPG. Nobody has a "ProPhotoRGB" monitor to see it on, and in fact nobody has ProPhotoRGB eyes as the colourspace includes many colours that are theoretically/mathematical rather than physically possible. The 8-bit colour of a JPG can't handle ProPhotoRGB with fidelity. It is intended as an intermediate working colour-space for doing colour manipulation in Photoshop on 16-bit TIFF files. You should use sRGB for internet JPGs. Also, unless you own a wide-gamut monitor, and have setup your software and operating system and monitor settings to take advantage of it, I'd strongly recommend using sRGB for the intermediate files too, as many software tools ignore or strip out colourspace details, running the risk that you end up with the wrong colours. -- Colin (talk) 08:05, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Because this is basically what you're saying. We even have FPs of the same species and these two bark photos are not the same species and a totally different motif. Your oppose rationale is nothing but a hypocritical double-standard and as far as I'm concerned it is not a valid rational. What's good for the goose should be good for the gander but here it clearly isn't. These double standard rationals at FPC need to stop here and now. So which German church FPs are you going to put up for delisting since by your logic we should only have one German church FP, one moth\butterfly FP shot and mounted the same, one bark photo regardless of the species, one flower photo regardless of species, etc? Maybe I'll start opposing all the German church and mountain FPs because I'm bored with them and don't feel like picking out the best one. PumpkinSky talk 21:28, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment@PumpkinSky: I'm sorry if the picture didn't immediately show that this is a different species. It is in the nature of things that it is more difficult to depict tree bark in an interesting way than churches, which do not necessarily have to be German. To be precise, I just don't find this picture interesting enough for FP. You should not react so irritated to justified criticism just try to improve your pictures here is where it worked.--Ermell (talk) 22:12, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment@Ermell: Then that's what you should have said, not say we can we can only have one bark photo, period, of any kind. This was not justified criticism, it was a cop out on your part. This is clearly labled Pinus palustris not Pinus taeda, if you'd looked. Have you ever opposed because there's already a flower photo? I doubt it. I've seen this many times, different rules for different photos or whatever. We can have multiple photos of a bird species but only one of bark? What sense does that make? None. I'm done with the double standards, hypocrisy, and other things I have seen here. I'm done with Commons. PumpkinSky talk 22:24, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Jebulon compared to last shots, i think your monitor isnt set correct. Shots are dark, colors dull. Something might be wrong. Laptop ?--Mile (talk) 11:01, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Mile, thanks for advice. But I watch my pictures on two monitors, one MAC27 at home, and one PC19 at work. And I don't see what you say. I don't understand really what "dull" mean in this case. The fact is that the light is very harsh in summer in Greece, and I used a polarizing filter. Maybe there is something on that side. Anyway, even if I disagree with you for the most part, thanks again for interest and help.--Jebulon (talk) 14:56, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Jebulon, I think you are right that the polarization filter is what is causing the problem. From what I know, strong, harsh light is not usually a reason to use such a filter. It is more designed to get rid of reflections on surfaces. I think stong light is better to control by altering the APEX exposure bias (say -0,7 or so) and fix things later in post-processing. I recently did a test myself to see how a polarizing filter altered a scene and the result looks a bit like your photo. I shot the exact same scene with and without a filter on a very bright and sunny day. I think it's a matter of taste which version you prefer. --cart-Talk 17:01, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

  • @Benh, PetarM, Jebulon, W.carter: If I may offer my very humble opinion on polarizing filters...and I readily admit I don't have the knowledge or experience you all have, but I like my circular polarizing filters. In my experience, they can cut sunlight, affect colors---making them brighter or darker depending on where the sun is and where you turn the filter to, and cut reflections. See [4] and [5]. Just my two cents. PumpkinSky talk 01:51, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Something like that. You also loose some 1/3-half of stop. Checked EXIF of Jebulon shot. Focal 54 mm, Manual exposure, 1/60 sec, f/10, ISO 50. I would say, if you got best PL, you might loose in this Manualising. Automatic isnt that stupid, sometimes is better to leave it. I would say isnt sharp due to large time, i doubt its was on tripod. Tint +6 (i never saw od daylight that much), Vibrance +34, Blacks +28, Clarity +41, Luminance Adjustment Blue: -17. I think its more spoiled in software, with losing sharpness with handmoving (in case you got best and expencive PL), otheriwse add PL in it. --Mile (talk) 08:09, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Poco and Hockei. An FP can be taken from this angle, I believe. And in this light. But polarizing the whole image was probably too much.

  • @Jebulon: That qestion is usually brought up at all discussions about photos taken on or in close proximety to railways. Don't you remember this, this or even this as examples? There is even a special template developed for these kind of photos, see {{Tracks are for trains}}, it is used on 2609 photos. --cart-Talk 15:44, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per Shishir--great idea but unsharp. The tracks look curvy, if true, trains aren't using them. If optical illusion, I don't care if people are on it if it was done safely. Three animals are on it and aren't scared: a monkey, a large bird, and what looks like some sort of ungulate. There's something odd about the backlight on the monkey. PumpkinSky talk 22:22, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - I particularly like the fact that an interaction between birds is shown. This is the Google Translate into English of the Ukrainian file description: "The young bird is still trying to ask the parents for food. Kosar (Platalea leucorodia) is a rare bird that breaks within the Danube Biosphere Reserve." What does "breaks" mean? Rests during its yearly migration? Or does it simply mean that's where the birds live? Commons search is once again hanging for me, so that I can't see what other FPs we might have of this bird. Why does Commons search hang so much?
