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.

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.

  • @King of Hearts: Neither do I see any overexposure (except of course the two little windows in the wall on the right - the sun is directly behind them and what do you expect to see when you shoot straigt in the sun), nor can I find a "stitch line". The light conditions did not change between the frames. Please give me a hint. --Code (talk) 05:21, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
  • I've marked the overexposure as an image note; large parts of it are at 255 in one or more channels, and significant detail has been lost. The line is visible only in the 360 viewer, where the left edge connects to the right edge (of the flat image). -- King of ♠ 02:55, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @King of Hearts: Well then, I've spent the last four hours working on a new version without any over- or underexposure. You can find the result here but I don't think it's very convincing. The new file has a perfect histogram but it looks grey, flat and not very appealing. So I'm not going to replace this "overexposed" version with the new version. I think in this case it's better to accept some brighter parts. A perfect histogram doesn't always make a perfect picture. Regarding the stitching line you saw it's obviously a problem with the panellum viewer. As you can see here the sky is created from a single frame so there definitely can't be any problem with differently exposed frames or changing light situations. Sorry, but all in all I don't see anything I should or even could improve here. --Code (talk) 10:50, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - It has a personality warning now. It's clearly unsharp at full size, but full size is bigger than life size, and this photo fulfills the first of the 12 Elements of a Merit Image in spades, in my opinion: "Impact is the sense one gets upon viewing an image for the first time. Compelling images evoke laughter, sadness, anger, pride, wonder or another intense emotion." And for me, the impact is lasting. My feeling is, if this photo could be sharpened just a bit so that the woman is sharper at full screen, we should support a promotion. I could see this as an iconic image. Dorieo, could you please sharpen a bit? Tomascastelazo, given our previous discussions, I'd be particularly interested in your take on this photo. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:19, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Even if the instant is special, the motif is not, that is, a photograph of a woman (as beautiful as she may be), therefore the technical issue here is important. If it had been the last image of a famous person it would be a different story. Thank you for your consideration. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 17:23, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

I guess that depends on what else would be in the series, but I don't think I would vote to feature this picture, due to the tight crop and the other horse overlapping this one's nose.

I have many of these images for ebay-auctions. It is a good QI and VI but not FP in my opinion. FP needs wow, something that places it among our finest.

      • Daniel Case, El Grafo, I think the pure white background makes the difference, the photo here has a grey background, making it look more dull/dirty. Having a white background—shadows dissolving into it—is a step up in photographic quality in my book (as long as the object stays well defined) and that is what removes you "seeing" how the sausage is made (the paper background being used). There is a line in perception somewhere. Consider this as a clearer example: File:Canon EF 70-200mm f4 IS USM.jpgLucasT 20:45, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

I observe rock pigeons a lot, and I often have trouble telling the sexes apart unless the male is engaging in mating behavior or puffing himself up while chasing away another male. But sometimes, if I see a couple hanging out on a ledge, I can tell from the relative sizes, the shape of the ceres and the amount of iridescent feathers on the head, neck and upper torso. I'm guessing the pigeon on our left is the female, but I'm not sure and we don't have wood pigeons in my neck of the woods. :-) Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:06, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Photoelasticity - TDK Head Cleaner, featured[edit]

Voting period ends on 27 Mar 2017 at 15:07:39 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Going further back in time than Compact Disc, here is a TDK Head Cleaner. The clear plastic is birefringent and demonstrates internal stress as coloured patterns (photoelasticity) when photographed using cross polarisation. In first photo, the polarising filter on the lens is at right-angles to the polarised light from the LCD monitor behind the cassette. This cancels out all the direct light, producing a black background. In second photo, the monitor was rotated 90°, aligning the polarised light with the filter. This lets through all the direct light, producing a white background. The colours are stronger in the first photo but also switched about (e.g., green and magenta). You can see a Juxtapose of the two images here. For reference, the cassette under normal light is shown in this photo. The pair of images demonstrate how rotation by 90° affects the interaction of polarised light with a polarised filter. All by me. -- Colin (talk) 15:07, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

"Raven rattle", a rattle used by the Tlingit people of indigenous people from Cascadia. This image is provided by the Bowers Museum.
@Colin: That is all valid criticism. Before you brought it up none of it crossed my mind. In response to your "What's the purpose" question: As an infrequent but repeat user of the Commons grading systems I often do not know which process to use. I came here to get some validation back to the museum that the Wikimedia community had some critique of their submission and also to get some approval of the image in case I distributed it around multiple articles. Overall, I am looking for some image grading to justify more-than-typical reuse of images, and am ambivalent about what form that should take. If an image is suggested to be integrated across languages, and in Wikidata, and elsewhere, then it seems right to me to submit it for grading somewhere. If anyone ever wanted to have talks about reforming the grading process then I might talk about that, because I would not have minded grading process that could have had any of a number of outcomes like "FP", "QI", "suitable for broad circulation in other wiki projects", etc. Right now it is still fairly novel for museums to make media donations, but as this trend steps up, I would like for there to be clearer guidance about what Wikipedians can do to mediate between museums and the Commons community. Blue Rasberry (talk) 20:10, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
There is no unitary grading system. VIC, QIC and FPC have different criteria. Also, QIs have to be photographed by Commons members, whereas VIs and FPs don't have to. Check the Commons category, but this would seem to be a good VI candidate. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:25, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm a bit puzzled what you were expecting from FP. It's a perfectly reasonable picture, albeit with quite a lot of room left round the subject, and could be used in articles related to the subject. That's not really what we are judging here. While we aim (albeit imperfectly) to determine professional standards of technical quality in an image, we're also looking for something extra that takes it to be among our finest images. We need to be wowed, either by an amazing subject captured well or a mundane subject captured extraordinarily, or by amazing light, or a great moment, etc etc. One could set up a table with an infinite sheet of grey card, some soft boxes and a DSLR and snap away taking perfectly competent photos all day. They could be very useful documents of the collection of the museum and perfectly usable images, but what is special about them? Also, this photo is five years old, so you are not really getting feedback about what sort of photos they should take -- the photographer who took this has probably moved on long ago. Personally, I wish QI was merely a judge of a "professional quality; useful image" and didn't care about the image origins or some of the pixel-peeping that goes on. We lack that kind of grade and it seems to me the most useful one for our re-users because they could eliminate the poor quality images that one would need to be desperate to use. Btw, "suitable for broad circulation in other wiki projects" is unlikely to be a grading criteria. Commons is about more than WMF projects or the concerns of a MediaWiki user interface. I see the Bowers museum has a mission to "enrich lives through the world's finest arts and cultures" and "celebrate world cultures through their arts". If they believe that extends beyond the visitors to their museum, then sharing their collection with the world using freely licensed photos is one way. While Commons doesn't provide a great UI for viewing a collection, it does make it easy to share those images and permit their reuse elsewhere. Surely they should be mainly concerned with taking and offering the best photos they can, rather than worry about the opinions of half a dozen amateurs or their use on Wikimedia projects? Any professional photographer of artefacts will likely give better advice than anyone here can. -- Colin (talk) 10:39, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Besides that, I think this one lacks contrast and saturation. Additionally a geocode is missing and the description is far from being sufficient for FP. What do we see? Who painted the frescoes? When were they painted? I still don't get it why you never add an Italian description. You're a native speaker and a description in a second language could be very useful for a lot of users. Just placing one's camera on the floor and uploading the result to Commons is just not enough for FP in my opinion. --Code (talk) 19:12, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Geocode and the descripiption is the same of all my other FP however, I do not consider you an objective person as you know.Plus you are so offensive and naive that you think there isn't work behind? Only a camera on a tripod (on the floor probably put you) and that's it? But please be serious. So this discussion is useless as your comment,in my opinion. --LivioAndronico (talk) 21:09, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • LivioAndronico, you've been on good behavior (from what I've seen) since your return. Don't backslide and remember what happened before. Is this photo geocoded? Is there an Italian-language description? I see you didn't address those things. And the question of who painted the frescoes is one I've given up asking you but previously wanted to know. I'm tending to find Code's sober expression of opinion more persuasive than your hot dismissal of him. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:50, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Ikan Kekek: say:"Just placing one's camera on the floor and uploading the result to Commons is just not enough for FP in my opinion." it is definitely a nice way of saying something, but treated as a child, especially after more than 100 FP. If for you it is a way of making nice, then I apologize, but I do not consider this, you can ask the saturation, artist, etc., but they are all things that one can "fix". --LivioAndronico (talk) 09:46, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Livioandronico2013: I'm sorry if I was wrong regarding the efforts you have to make to create such photos. I'm honestly curious: What else do you do to make such photos of ceilings? I really want to know as I'm always willing to improve my own skills. Concerning WB and saturation I still believe that they are far from being perfect. I know this church very well and that's not what it looks like. But well, maybe you're trying an artistic approach, then it might just be a matter of taste. --Code (talk) 08:55, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Code:What a question is that? .... Then what do you do more than point a camera on any object? The same is that these kind of photos and that is: perspective, cuts, contrast, saturation, etc. Then if you believe that the saturation etc are not to your taste is ok, but it is not respectful to others, or are more ignorant of you? Also write "Just placing one's camera on the floor and uploading the result to Commons is just not enough for FP in my opinion." is a compliment in germany i think --LivioAndronico (talk) 09:46, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

  • @King of Hearts: Neither do I see any overexposure (except of course the two little windows in the wall on the right - the sun is directly behind them and what do you expect to see when you shoot straigt in the sun), nor can I find a "stitch line". The light conditions did not change between the frames. Please give me a hint. --Code (talk) 05:21, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
  • I've marked the overexposure as an image note; large parts of it are at 255 in one or more channels, and significant detail has been lost. The line is visible only in the 360 viewer, where the left edge connects to the right edge (of the flat image). -- King of ♠ 02:55, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @King of Hearts: Well then, I've spent the last four hours working on a new version without any over- or underexposure. You can find the result here but I don't think it's very convincing. The new file has a perfect histogram but it looks grey, flat and not very appealing. So I'm not going to replace this "overexposed" version with the new version. I think in this case it's better to accept some brighter parts. A perfect histogram doesn't always make a perfect picture. Regarding the stitching line you saw it's obviously a problem with the panellum viewer. As you can see here the sky is created from a single frame so there definitely can't be any problem with differently exposed frames or changing light situations. Sorry, but all in all I don't see anything I should or even could improve here. --Code (talk) 10:50, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

It's clearly unsharp at full size, but full size is bigger than life size, and this photo fulfills the first of the 12 Elements of a Merit Image in spades, in my opinion: "Impact is the sense one gets upon viewing an image for the first time. Compelling images evoke laughter, sadness, anger, pride, wonder or another intense emotion." And for me, the impact is lasting. My feeling is, if this photo could be sharpened just a bit so that the woman is sharper at full screen, we should support a promotion. I could see this as an iconic image.

I guess that depends on what else would be in the series, but I don't think I would vote to feature this picture, due to the tight crop and the other horse overlapping this one's nose. Others may differ, but I find that quite distracting.

Having a white background—shadows dissolving into it—is a step up in photographic quality in my book (as long as the object stays well defined) and that is what removes you "seeing" how the sausage is made (the paper background being used).

I observe rock pigeons a lot, and I often have trouble telling the sexes apart unless the male is engaging in mating behavior or puffing himself up while chasing away another male.

Photoelasticity - TDK Head Cleaner, featured[edit]

Voting period ends on 27 Mar 2017 at 15:07:39 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Going further back in time than Compact Disc, here is a TDK Head Cleaner. The clear plastic is birefringent and demonstrates internal stress as coloured patterns (photoelasticity) when photographed using cross polarisation. In first photo, the polarising filter on the lens is at right-angles to the polarised light from the LCD monitor behind the cassette. This cancels out all the direct light, producing a black background. In second photo, the monitor was rotated 90°, aligning the polarised light with the filter. This lets through all the direct light, producing a white background. The colours are stronger in the first photo but also switched about (e.g., green and magenta). You can see a Juxtapose of the two images here. For reference, the cassette under normal light is shown in this photo. The pair of images demonstrate how rotation by 90° affects the interaction of polarised light with a polarised filter. All by me. -- Colin (talk) 15:07, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

"Raven rattle", a rattle used by the Tlingit people of indigenous people from Cascadia. This image is provided by the Bowers Museum.
@Colin: That is all valid criticism. Before you brought it up none of it crossed my mind. In response to your "What's the purpose" question: As an infrequent but repeat user of the Commons grading systems I often do not know which process to use. I came here to get some validation back to the museum that the Wikimedia community had some critique of their submission and also to get some approval of the image in case I distributed it around multiple articles. Overall, I am looking for some image grading to justify more-than-typical reuse of images, and am ambivalent about what form that should take. If an image is suggested to be integrated across languages, and in Wikidata, and elsewhere, then it seems right to me to submit it for grading somewhere. If anyone ever wanted to have talks about reforming the grading process then I might talk about that, because I would not have minded grading process that could have had any of a number of outcomes like "FP", "QI", "suitable for broad circulation in other wiki projects", etc. Right now it is still fairly novel for museums to make media donations, but as this trend steps up, I would like for there to be clearer guidance about what Wikipedians can do to mediate between museums and the Commons community. Blue Rasberry (talk) 20:10, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
There is no unitary grading system. VIC, QIC and FPC have different criteria. Also, QIs have to be photographed by Commons members, whereas VIs and FPs don't have to. Check the Commons category, but this would seem to be a good VI candidate. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:25, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm a bit puzzled what you were expecting from FP. It's a perfectly reasonable picture, albeit with quite a lot of room left round the subject, and could be used in articles related to the subject. That's not really what we are judging here. While we aim (albeit imperfectly) to determine professional standards of technical quality in an image, we're also looking for something extra that takes it to be among our finest images. We need to be wowed, either by an amazing subject captured well or a mundane subject captured extraordinarily, or by amazing light, or a great moment, etc etc. One could set up a table with an infinite sheet of grey card, some soft boxes and a DSLR and snap away taking perfectly competent photos all day. They could be very useful documents of the collection of the museum and perfectly usable images, but what is special about them? Also, this photo is five years old, so you are not really getting feedback about what sort of photos they should take -- the photographer who took this has probably moved on long ago. Personally, I wish QI was merely a judge of a "professional quality; useful image" and didn't care about the image origins or some of the pixel-peeping that goes on. We lack that kind of grade and it seems to me the most useful one for our re-users because they could eliminate the poor quality images that one would need to be desperate to use. Btw, "suitable for broad circulation in other wiki projects" is unlikely to be a grading criteria. Commons is about more than WMF projects or the concerns of a MediaWiki user interface. I see the Bowers museum has a mission to "enrich lives through the world's finest arts and cultures" and "celebrate world cultures through their arts". If they believe that extends beyond the visitors to their museum, then sharing their collection with the world using freely licensed photos is one way. While Commons doesn't provide a great UI for viewing a collection, it does make it easy to share those images and permit their reuse elsewhere. Surely they should be mainly concerned with taking and offering the best photos they can, rather than worry about the opinions of half a dozen amateurs or their use on Wikimedia projects? Any professional photographer of artefacts will likely give better advice than anyone here can. -- Colin (talk) 10:39, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. We already had a similar candidate here which didn't pass. The main critizism there was that the WB was too cool. This picture here has the same issue. Besides that, I think this one lacks contrast and saturation. Additionally a geocode is missing and the description is far from being sufficient for FP. What do we see? Who painted the frescoes? When were they painted? I still don't get it why you never add an Italian description. You're a native speaker and a description in a second language could be very useful for a lot of users. Just placing one's camera on the floor and uploading the result to Commons is just not enough for FP in my opinion. --Code (talk) 19:12, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • The WB,contrast and saturation are perfect. Geocode and the descripiption is the same of all my other FP however, I do not consider you an objective person as you know.Plus you are so offensive and naive that you think there isn't work behind? Only a camera on a tripod (on the floor probably put you) and that's it? But please be serious. So this discussion is useless as your comment,in my opinion. --LivioAndronico (talk) 21:09, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • LivioAndronico, you've been on good behavior (from what I've seen) since your return. Don't backslide and remember what happened before. Is this photo geocoded? Is there an Italian-language description? I see you didn't address those things. And the question of who painted the frescoes is one I've given up asking you but previously wanted to know. I'm tending to find Code's sober expression of opinion more persuasive than your hot dismissal of him. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:50, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Ikan Kekek: say:"Just placing one's camera on the floor and uploading the result to Commons is just not enough for FP in my opinion." it is definitely a nice way of saying something, but treated as a child, especially after more than 100 FP. If for you it is a way of making nice, then I apologize, but I do not consider this, you can ask the saturation, artist, etc., but they are all things that one can "fix". --LivioAndronico (talk) 09:46, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Livioandronico2013: I'm sorry if I was wrong regarding the efforts you have to make to create such photos. I'm honestly curious: What else do you do to make such photos of ceilings? I really want to know as I'm always willing to improve my own skills. Concerning WB and saturation I still believe that they are far from being perfect. I know this church very well and that's not what it looks like. But well, maybe you're trying an artistic approach, then it might just be a matter of taste. --Code (talk) 08:55, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Code:What a question is that? .... Then what do you do more than point a camera on any object? The same is that these kind of photos and that is: perspective, cuts, contrast, saturation, etc. Then if you believe that the saturation etc are not to your taste is ok, but it is not respectful to others, or are more ignorant of you? Also write "Just placing one's camera on the floor and uploading the result to Commons is just not enough for FP in my opinion." is a compliment in germany i think --LivioAndronico (talk) 09:46, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
