  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Famberhorst and Llez. Also, perhaps I'm biased because I see these birds almost every day (this time of year) in the shallows of the river while I'm walking across the bridges near my house, but this really doesn't seem like an extraordinary picture of them. Yes, I know they're in their natural habitat, but I'd like to see a little more of them and not so much of the environment. As it is, it's a QI possibly (certainly in composition) but not an FP for me. Daniel Case (talk) 02:27, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Wolf im Wald, there are no "legal reasons" to blur their faces. The law in the US permits photos of identifiable people to be taken and published and we have many thousands of such images on Commons. Nor is their, imo, any moral reason to do so as your image does not harm anyone's reputation. Consider my own photo of a railway station which contains hundreds of identifiable people. I do not wish to support this image while the people are blurred: they are in the photo and should be displayed properly and their presence gives scale to the subject. There's even a series in The Guardian newspaper called "That's me in the picture" where subjects celebrate their appearance in some famous photo, and often they were not aware the photo was taken, never mind were asked permission. A national park has people in it. Let's be happy about that rather than blur it out. -- Colin (talk) 11:33, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
  • I do not know their nationality. In Germany, we have a different legal situation. Indeed German law allows you to publish images with recognizable people on it but only if there are at least 5 or 10 people on the image. If there are less than 5 people on the image it can quickly become a problem for the photographer. Maybe the people are Germans and I uploaded the image from Germany. I think in this case they could take me to court (in Germany). If I would be an US-citizen and the people on the image too, I would agree with your opinion. But this is a very popular location for tourists from all over the world and the legal situation of my country does not allow this, as far as I know. Do you understand my situation? Regards, -- Wolf im Wald 11:51, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
  • I'm of the same opinion of Colin; this was a public place and people must be aware that images are taken in such places. As long as the people are not the subject (just caught on camera by coincidence), the photographer cannot be blamed. Cropping them out would be acceptable, but censoring images crosses the line IMO.--Peulle (talk) 12:58, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Wolf im Wald, why on Earth would they take you to court? No reasonable person could have an expectation of privacy in these wide-open spaces, and they are not depicted doing anything unusual or sexual. Are you afraid they'd want payment? Next time, maybe you should ask the people for permission. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:20, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Maybe it would be better to clone the two people out of the image completely. Daphne Lantier 18:18, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
'LivioAndronico, did you ask Wolf im Wald permission to clone out the people? If not, then that's really disrespectful to alter his photo and especially to alter it while it is an FPC. To be honest, I'd prefer to see the people but without the blur, unless those people are friends of the photographer and have asked to be made unidentifiable. The US has no issues with photographing people in public places, and in fact there's a good chance they'll be happy to see their photos on Wiki in this case. It gives a sense of scale. Such a significant change requires pinging all previous voters, not just those who objected to the blurred faces (which I do also). I think you should consider reverting and asking first. -- Colin (talk) 21:50, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Of course Colin I warned him, anyway I do not think that's your problem. And why ask if you believe, wrongly, to be right? Besides, the photo is here and visible to everyone. --LivioAndronico (talk) 22:04, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
  • To me the people were an important part of the composition and I'm considering changing my vote to oppose now. But first I'd like to hear if Wolf im Wald agrees with the editing done by LivioAndronico2013. The blurred faces were no big deal and I find it quite respectful to blur them regardless what the legal situation in the U.S. or elsewhere is. --Code (talk) 05:55, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
  • I thought the people were quite recognizable despite a bit of blurring. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:25, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
I have reverted the change per Commons:Overwriting existing files. This official guideline requires you to ask first, not just tell them afterwards you've made significant alterations to their photo while it was their nomination at FPC. If Wolf im Wald is happy with the edit he can restore it, though I caution that really he then needs to ping everyone who has voted here. Livio, you know full well that photographers here can generally do a better job making edits to their raw files than anyone else can with the JPG. This is Wolf im Wald's photo and you should respect that. -- Colin (talk) 07:33, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
I prefer the version with the people because they are a good scale for the size of the arch and they improve the composition in my opinion. I blurred them moderately not to hurt the picture. I think they are not clearly recognizable but they are blurred so moderately that you only can realize that in full view if you look out for their faces. Therefore I think the current version is a good compromise between these aspects. -- Wolf im Wald 11:37, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

          • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I've read the discussion, but between these bird images was a time difference of only a few minutes and the subject was the same (excluding the birds head pose). The Yosemite images show different perspectives and they have a time difference of about 11 months. Therefore the sky is very different becaus they were not taken at the same day. Besides the camera locations are about 500 meters apart (see geodata). So I don't think, that the situation is comparable with the bird. Regards -- Wolf im Wald 23:28, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

  • I think the foreground does add to the image, even if it is unsharp (since the foreground is not the subject that should be irrelevant anyway. Also, per Peulle below, it's impossible without focus stacking). The reason the inclusion of the foreground is important IMO that it allows the curve of the river and rocks to be uninterrupted. One of the hardest things to do is avoiding those kinds of "cuts" in an image and I suspect that's what Thomas was going for here -- Thennicke (talk) 09:47, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I see the point made by Milseburg and Ikan Kekek, but since the foreground curves upwards to the right, cropping it out would mean cutting off the river: no fix possible without focus stacking. Main subject is clear and sharp, the level of detail is amazing for such a large photo, you can even see birds in the sky clearly outlined and power line towers in the distance.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Strong support Isn't it amazing what those Canon sensors can do? Usually that shade of blue in the sky is (to me) a yellow flag that there might have been a little too much processing, but this time it's the real deal. Love the result ... it brings back very old memories of visiting Athens. Shame the Parthenon's all scaffolded up, though. Daniel Case (talk) 01:52, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
    • Daniel I'm curious why you praise Canon sensors here, unless as a little joke? Adobe probably has more influence in what colours you see than Canon. I assume this is a downsized-stitched panorama. Even a six-year-old entry-level DSLR with plastic $100 prime lens is capable of generating a picture like this (e.g. this photo). It's the photographer who makes the photo; Der Wolf im Wald should get your praise, not Canon. -- Colin (talk) 08:47, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
@Colin: I was talking more about the level of detail. Sort of an inside joke between me and my dad, if he happens to be reading this. Daniel Case (talk) 15:19, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

    Most browsers have problems with images above 100 Megapixels. Nevertheless there are some opportunities, to view these images in high resolution. Opportunity 1: You can download the file (right click on the 800px preview and "save target/link as"). Opportunity 2: You can click on the resolution links below the 800px preview (but not the full resolution link!) und then p.e. you will reach the URL https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/3c/San_Crist%C3%B3bal_de_La_Laguna.jpg/1280px-San_Crist%C3%B3bal_de_La_Laguna.jpg Now you can replace the parameter "1280px" with a higher value, p.e. "5000px" (maximum is about "7000px", above: server error). Your third opportunity is to use the interactive large-image-viewer linked above the description (red box).

    In my opinion, even deserts are better at the golden hour than noon in general. There's a time and place for a noon shot, like File:Amboy (California, USA), Hist. Route 66 -- 2012 -- 1.jpg, but here it just doesn't cut it for me. (I guess noon works well when you're trying to convey a theme of "endless desert," but here the composition is too complex for that.) Anyways, it's ultimately a matter of personal preference. --King of ♠ 05:52, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

    • I agree with Jebulon that the composition is nothing special, and one could complain about it being just the upper part of the tower. It seems this is a popular subject for our FP crowd, with loads of good quality images! This gaudy image shows potential for a great city composition. The other picture Jebulon linked had the advantage of being taken from a high vantage point, so the angle of view was much better than this one. But the other image is less than 10MP and fairly sharp whereas this one is more than 70MP and extremely sharp. While that doesn't matter much if I print A4 or view the whole thing on a monitor, this picture allows me to explore the structure in a way that is highly educational to see how it is made and what has been stuck onto it. In our digital world, I can appreciate such a picture in more ways than just standing back and observing the whole thing. Here, I can see as much detail as Spiderman. That is why I think it is worth FP. -- Colin (talk) 20:44, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

    Yes, absolutely, not your fault. But with light from behind you, the haze is highlighted, whereas light from the side (ideally with a pol. filter) would reduce the effect. It would also show the three-dimensional shape of the terrain. — Julian H. 16:23, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Taking the image, I had to use ISO 400 (although I used a tripod), because the people on the observation deck where in motion all the time and therefore the floor (made of wood) oscillated noticeable. I think, you can't take a sharp image from this perspective without high ISO and short exposure time in the evening or at night. -- Wolf im Wald (keb) 01:40, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

I think it would be better if it was only almost clipped.

Mercedes-Benz at IAA 2013 in Frankfurt, Germany

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support To me, the subject is the architecture of this hall. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 12:00, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
And what can you tell us about that architecture based on this photo alone? Daniel Case (talk) 04:46, 13 October 2013 (UTC)
I can see the rough layout of this area of the hall, I see how light and colour is used for a dramatic presentation of the cars, I see how the visitors have access to an area all around the presentation area, going up via the escalator on the right and then back down using slopes (which is very similar to the Mercedes-Benz museum in a way). I also see that the roof is built in the shape of a dome but not lit at all to give the impressin of a very high room, making it almost but not completely invisible. On the right, an LED screen is used to imitate the look of a draped red curtain (thanks to sufficient resolution to see individual pixels). All parts of the building itself are clearly deconstructivist in their architecture. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 07:50, 13 October 2013 (UTC)
Well, what I see is an abstraction of discordant shapes in red and black into which the Daimler-Benz logo has somehow wandered. It is artistic, perhaps, but not an effective picture for an encyclopedic article. Daniel Case (talk) 06:06, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment It's a nice & highly valuable image, without doubt. But: Do we really need four (!) nearly identical views of Neuschwanstein as FP? Even though the one from 2005 can (and should, imo) be delisted, the remaining three are a bit too much I think. --A.Savin 22:45, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Per A.Savin. No more wow factor...--Jebulon (talk) 09:38, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
    • I'd say that is more a comment on our FP collection and processes than on this image. We don't moan when there are lots of similar poor-quality non-FP pictures in our collection. We are happy to congratulate one that is the best (and this is). So it is a bit unfair to be critical in this nom just because some others got to FP in the past. I imagine there is one best viewpoint for this castle, which limits the variation. Should we discourage people from taking and uploading improved pictures of subjects we already have? Of course not! Suppose this nom failed if everyone said "Not this again, boring" -- then we'd have a perverse situation where the best image of this castle wasn't actually featured. -- Colin (talk) 10:07, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
      • Yes, actually a dilemma. Feature this one but delist all others = a disrespect for the work by Taxi and Ximonic, possibly unnecessary conflicts. Feature this one and keep the others featured = somewhat contradictory to the idea of COM:FP (the "very best of Commons", several almost identical pictures concurrently featured). Not feature this one = nonsense, the picture isn't worse than the others (although the "wow factor" falls with every new nomination of this motif, that's for sure). --A.Savin 11:42, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
        • Well you and Jebulon can go "Wow, not this again!" :-). Having too many similar FPs is "a nice problem to have", is fairly uncommon, and not worth the pain it causes whenever the subject of delisting is raised. Let's just be happy we have an abundance of excellent photos and worry about something else. Colin (talk) 11:56, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
          • I think that this picture is the best or second best of them all, so I don't regard this as a reason to oppose. I also think that the photo from 2005 doesn't meet today's standards for FP any more with many blown areas and questionable wb/sharpening. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 12:52, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
            • Please notice that I did not oppose, and I even didn't vote...--Jebulon (talk) 16:33, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
              • Yes, but the comment is, imo, a little hurtful. And if everyone didn't vote because of "same again" then it wouldn't be featured... Colin (talk) 16:50, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
                • I'm sorry, I did not want to hurt anybody, sorry for that. And yes, I did not support because of "same again", so I've no problem if this picture is not promoted. But it will be promoted ! Good image, anyway...--Jebulon (talk) 19:51, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Nice light, motif and colors, but I think the use of a small focal length followed by software perspective correction resulted in an unnatural object shape. Cf. top of the two towers. -- Norbert Nagel (talk) 15:49, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Especially the right tower doesn't meet reality. Perhaps the coulors may be correct but they are not appealing. -- Lothar Spurzem (talk) 00:41, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
    • What is reality? The form of the towers depends on your standpoint. Photographed with tele from far away the tower is compressed, photographed from the position here with wide angle lines look longer (exactly the way as you would stand at this position). --Tuxyso (talk) 10:47, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg weak support: I like the photo (exposure, mood and very good sharpness with regard to the long exposure time). Two aspects are slightly disturbing: The fence and (more important) the scaffolding especially at the right gate. IMHO it still deserves FP. --Tuxyso (talk) 10:47, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Visible details in the inner room of the central building are very good and nice overall mood and reflections on the water. Is it an HDR? If so, you could use the Template:Panorama and briefly describe your processing. --Tuxyso (talk) 17:44, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
It is no HDR. I simply took the bright parts manually from another shot with shorter expusure-time. Therefor I used the Photoshop-layers. -- Wolf im Wald  (de) 02:21, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
But this kind of manipulation is also a kind of HDR/DRI --Wladyslaw (talk) 20:04, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
