  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Could you please supply more detail about what is shown and why it's of interest, and also about the program you used to create it? I'm a bit concerned about the sources you used; you give ISBNs but not titles and dates of publication. Were the sources within those books photographs or drawings, and are you able to show that they are out of copyright? Otherwise, there may be a copyright infringement problem. --MichaelMaggs 11:24, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
    Well, this is a 3D model drawn in Autodesk Autocad 2007, i dont understand Your concerns about copyright: 2D plans were published as well as photos as copyrighted. So I redrawned 2D plans in acad and then made 3D model and then corrected the model by comparing it to several photos... well I think details of whole algorithm isn't worth writing. This picture isn't even similar to any of graphics nor photos published in sources. I will add full (and then redundant) information about sources and anything You like. I've (unfortunately) never disputed seriously about these works so im grateful for Your comments. Spike78 12:12, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Has been contructed, as I understand it, essentially from plans and photos published in two recent books. Unless we have a reason to suppose those plans and photos are in the public domain my concerns that this is a copyright infringement remain. --MichaelMaggs 17:33, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
    Errrr... if I'd do a photo of modern building would You be concerned if "plans are copyrighted" because building is "recent"? I don't undersand it. Oh, do You have a permission to use this Chess piece - White bishop.JPG for a photo from the manufacturer? 'cause there may be a copyright infringement problem. Spike78 01:44, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Completely irrelevant. 3D based on published 2D plans cannot be a subject of any "copyrights" (regarding 2D plans authors). If so, all models (especially modern ones, like airliners) would be violating these, because we dont think that Boeing has relased its design and plans into PD? 3D modelling of any form is far beyond of any "derivativeness". Please think about it, and verify your vote. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Masur (talk • contribs) 05:39, 30 Apr 2008 (UTC)
      • My oppose is based on the copying of 2D plans into another 2D form in acad. That is copyright infringement unless the original plans can be shown to be in the public domain, or you have a licence. The chess example is different since (a) I did not do any 2D -> 2D copying of any original plans, and (b) that design is out of copyright. To answer the question about buildings: yes, buildings do have copyright, which normally expires 70 years after the death of the architect. There are special provisions in some countries, though, which allow photographs to be freely taken in spite of that. See Commons:Freedom of panorama. --MichaelMaggs 06:10, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
        • So? Plans were coppied and? We don't have them anymore in the final work. Pls think about those Boeing models. One can say, that capturing and publishing a photo of that models was a copyrights violation of 2d plans, because 2D plans were included in a box with model and "derivative" work (3D model, not even 3D, but photo of it) was finally released under GNU license. Dont be ridiculous. In your oppinion, as far as I understood it, ANY 2D/3D work based on existing template is copyvio... What concerns also buildings, airplanes, models, and so on... photos. Oh, another example - one can buy a architectonic plans and legally build a house based on them. And now, when I take a photo of that house, and relase it, i will make a copyvio? I think that somewhere is a limit of "derivativeness", and it is closer than you think. Otherwise we wouldnt be allowed to build any models! Masur 06:59, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
          • Please see Commons:Derivative works. --MichaelMaggs 16:38, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
            • So i think all is about: In short, all transfers of a creative, copyrightable work into a new media count as derivative works. But creating (because its creating! not reproducing or simply changing media) 3d model basing on 2d plans, is, IMO, not a transfer to a new media. Because I create (build) sth completely new and uniqe, as well as my interpretation of those plans is original (i.e. color schemes, details). And you just gave me the link to that page , but you didnt answer what about other models? Those plastics ones i.e. If this particular work (3D digital construction based on 2D (i dont go deep into how accurate is that reconstruction, cosit may be that changes of original concept from plans can be so large that no copyrights can be potentially aplied anyway) printed plans) is for you copyvio, ANY other model is a copyvio too. Cos in most cases they are constructed basing on plans prepared and sold by certain company (i.e. Italeri, if I remember the name of one of them). Pls notice also that those plan were not intended to be basis of any 3D digital reconstruction, I assume that they were more or less simple profile drawings or projections. And once again - plans are only recipe and NOT a work themselves. Masur 18:00, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

    Sorry I should be more clear :) I was mostly thinking about the lighting as mentioned by others. And perhaps there could be some sort of texture on the metal plates ? I do not know how it looks in reality but currently it looks slightly plastic instead of metallic to me. /Daniel78 11:30, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
    Ill try to find better texture for it. Using better lightning is now for me out of question. I've rendered this under Acad (and the ambient light is simulated by approx. 100 point lights placed spherically), now i will do it (and the others) on my gf comp under 3dmax. I didn't care about it 'cause I've allways considered these works as "technical" not "artistic". Take a look at my earlier models - they have even more simplified lightning, Ill correct them too after this discussion but I want to "collect" any "cons" so I could do it absolutely-total-good-and-nice. I just want Wiki to have the best pics in this matter all over the net. That's why I'm asking about any "cons" to be precise. And thank You for Your opinion. Spike78 12:32, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

I agree that the colors could be more like in the original, but the original has not the original/true colors IMO. When looking at the histogram on circle1 the blue channel isn't congruent like it should. Furthermore its hardly imaginable 4 me that we have a twilight or a rainy situation here as the shadows in circle2 are nicely drawn and the afternoon sun (arrow4) causing overexposed highlights in circle3, even at 1/1000s.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Hello B.navez! According to the book "Flaggen und Wappen der Welt" (Flags and Coats of Arms of the World, Gütersloh, Bertelsmann, 1992, p. 60) the arms along with the new flag (also on Commons) were granted on August 2, 1990 by the British Government in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the territory's establishment (see also the description of the arms at English Wikipedia). The arms were also printed on an UK 24pc stamp issued in 1990 (see [1] and [2]). Although the US Army leased the island of Diego Garcia as a military base, the territory remains in British possession (see here).
    • Pictogram voting info.svg InfoOk, thanks for official information. It is a good drawing but apart the fact the territory is disputed, is a page of shame for UK and so featuring could be considered as not NPOV, the turtles are not credible. The left one is clearly a Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) but the right one looks like a terrestrial tortoise with marine members. Information about stamps say it should be Caretta caretta but I doubt (not known nesting there) and I'd rather think it intends to be a Green Turtle(Chelonia mydas) because of the green color and being common in this area. The original coat of arms was so badly drawn it was of no importance, but with a good drawing, accuracy of the representation makes it paradoxically wronger.--B.navez 17:16, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote oversat.svg Strong oppose graphically I don't think this map is one of the best historical maps we have in commons, this yellow is realy agressive, the paths of the lines are not always regular (see for exemple the coast line) but my strong opposition is not based on graphics aspects, this map is not historicaly correct, that's the problem, we can see that in the maps provided as sources of this creation, that the actuale en:Loreto Region is not included in the Inca empire, but it is on this map and I'm quite sure that there is other amazonian areas that shouldn't be included in this map or at least there should be a gradient showing that Incas had fewer authority in the easterns areas--Kimdime69 22:56, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
    • First of all thanks for your comments. Please note that this is not the map for Inca Empire borders. The yellow color does not show the Inca Empire and it is just used for indicating the land of South America. It is not complete because it is my artistic way of drwaing wich you may not like. As this is not a map of Inca Empire borders and this is a map for Inca Empire Road System (please check the name of the file for a better understanding) the borders of the modern countries is shown only to give a better understanding of the area and for this reason the en:Loreto Region is the map cause it is in the borders of modern Peru. And Peru is the main modern country which covers most of the lands of Inca Empire. And this map is drawn mainly from this image and this image is exactly taken from image in the book Inca Road System by John Hyslop who is one the best scholars worked on Inca Road System. Therefore, I kindly ask you to show me and other Commonians the wrong parts of the map (with prooves of course) in order to let me correct them. Please do not forget the main reason for voting of the Featured pictures is not not to choose but Choose, so with your helps or other peoples help we can change the pictures and by this way we can gain one more featured picture. But at the end if it is not choosen by the group than we can think that we did our best but unfortunately we did not manage to have one more FP. For the yeloow color, if you can show me an example of a better yellow color that you find less agresive, I will be more than glad to change the yellow color on the map. Thanks for your comments again. --Manco Capac 06:53, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
I have softened the yeloow I hope this will not give you an agresive look. --Manco Capac 07:16, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Well I would recomend you to use the #FCF5E3 for the lands or if you want a darker color the #F4E2BA. Then you have to understand that this representation of the lands is really disruptive, if I made the mistake others will make the same so what I would suggest is first to make a normal representation of the lands covering all the lands of South America wich are present in this map, if you desagree with this option to make a regular representation of the area you want to highlight (the area with inca road system), you shoud then draw it on the east as a circular arc but you don't have to follow the borders, eventualy you may add a gradient showing that the influence of inca empire is decreasing on the east, then I have other coments to add, I don't understand why the coast line is so complicated in your work, I would suggest you to use a single line with a #27AAEA colour (but it may depend on the colour you used for the sea), for the borders I would suggest you to use a #787878 colour and to use the system of broken line you can see [[Image:Kosovo map-fr.svg|there].
