Peanuts seller in Ouagadougou

  •  Info created and uploaded by Romanceor - nominated by Thermos -- Thermos 15:20, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support Quite simply, a stunning work of photography, where the colours, composition and athmosphere are perfect. Excellent bokeh too. -- Thermos 15:20, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support Great photo. I really enjoy looking at it --Leafnode 16:02, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support I like the original one. Great job! --Manco Capac 21:07, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Comment The colors are off, everything has a red tinge. --Calibas 21:45, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support Sometimes, at the end of the day, colors and light are just like that and that's what is great. --B.navez 03:10, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  • temporary Oppose ... until the colors are tweaked correctly. No sandstorms 4 me. --Richard Bartz 04:24, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose due to colour cast. --MichaelMaggs 05:59, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support Very nice mood and atmosphere. I trust the creators statement that the colors in the original best resembles how it really was. -- Slaunger 06:23, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Comment The original has a low dynamic range and I don't like the contrast. Unfortunatley, the first edit eliminates this together with it's warm evening atmosphere. Maybe a second edit keeping its original colour temperature would enhance the picture's quality, but in general, a suitable candidate... --Taraxacum 07:29, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose bad contrast --Herrick 07:58, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support I like this one the best out of the three. I find the colours natural. Popperipopp 16:50, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support The colours of this one give it all its charm. Colours don't seem natural on first edit, and there is too much light on the two edits. Fred waldron 17:34, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support FRZ 01:58, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
8 support, 3 oppose >> featured -- Alvesgaspar 09:54, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

  •  Comment a great composition, I also noticed it in the QICs. I added a new version. I am not the best concerning colour-balancing...maybe someone can make it better (Richard..are you there? ;)) but i thought that the sky is too brown in the original version. --AngMoKio 17:21, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
 Comment _Please_ link all edits/versions with each other. It's so often forgotten. /Daniel78 19:45, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
I did it. /Daniel78 10:42, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Your edit looks good. --Richard Bartz 17:39, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
Nice new balance but the "true" colors are more like in the original ; sky isn't blue in Ouagadougou. --Romanceor 17:58, 28 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. The truth is somewhere between the original and AngMoKio's edit --Richard Bartz 04:22, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
At 18:18 under tropics night is very soon, you can also see that by the enlightening of the cushion very horizontally. And you can have dusty clouds in the background but not necessary around you. --B.navez 15:46, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

  •  Support have to rethink --norro 19:22, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Comment This edit copleteley changed the photo. In the original version the day light is close to a rainy day and wich is great with the colors of the dress of the lady. But in the edited version it is a sunny day and I didi not liked the colors in that way. --Manco Capac 21:06, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose artificial change of colors --B.navez 03:11, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose The moody atmosphere in the original is lost for me. -- Slaunger 10:05, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose FRZ 01:58, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose as it was said, colors are unrealistic now --Leafnode 20:41, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Saint-Séverin ceiling[edit]

Template:FPCnom/VotingEndsVoting period ends on 3 Jan 2014 at 23:39:46 (UTC)

Original – Gothic quadripartite cross-ribbed vault of the Saint-Séverin church in Paris
It's a quality image and valued image at Commons, so the technical quality is apparently good. The size of 1,825 × 2,855 is well over the minimum. It definitely has a "wow" factor, showing details of the closer arches as well as a comprehensive view of the farther ones, thus demonstrating how the vault is composed as a whole. Licensed as GFDL/CC-by-sa-all. It demonstrates the way in which arches combine to form a vault, with bonus points for demonstrating the vault's curve over the apse. Easily verifiable; it's a simple photo of the interior of a public building. The description is what I've given as "caption" for this nomination, plus geotagging and date; the primary caption is in French, as it's a place in France. I'm unaware of any digital manipulation whatsoever.

  • Support. Great example of high quality architecture photo. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 14:11, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Support This is a useful, high-quality image. The caption should include the date, which is known- 1489. Note: I changed the picture caption from "vaults" to "vault". A vaulted ceiling is a "vault" singular, not plural. Amandajm (talk) 07:27, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

  •  Info Ad for Viandox from the sixties revealed by the workings in the parisian subway. created by Romanceor - uploaded by Romanceor - nominated by B.navez --B.navez 16:05, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support --B.navez 16:05, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
  •  Neutral In general an interesting photo. Is there also a photo with a bit more of the surroundings? Where do you have that info about the ad from? It is not in the pictures should get added there. --AngMoKio 19:58, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
 Info The info is available on the "Viandox" entry of the French Wikipedia. I've just added it to the description. Romanceor 23:19, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

  •  Oppose Interesting but not very valuable.

Sorry, you should try Commons:Quality images candidates first! --Beyond silence 13:46, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

    • In what sense is this photo not valuable? --AngMoKio 09:42, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support Romary 17:02, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
  •  Question Is this copyright infringment, since it is from the 60's? -- Ram-Man 22:43, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose as per Beyond Silence. Also, a tad unsharp, even scaled down. -- Ram-Man 04:35, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
    • In what sense is this photo not valuable? --AngMoKio 09:42, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
      • Arguing over value takes a lot of effort and upon a second closer look at this, the picture is of a wall and should be spectacularly sharp, but is nowhere near FP quality. The fact that it came from an SLR implies that the error is the photographer alone, likely because of the too slow shutter speed blurring the image. For reproductions of artwork, this comes nowhere close to the acceptable standard. -- Ram-Man 22:15, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
        • I agree on the technical quality. But still I think it is a well spotted scene...not everyone has an eye for such shots. --AngMoKio 07:58, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
        • I completely disagree with these technical arguments which I think are not valuable because this is a poster, in a tunnel, without flash and furthermore matter is printed with low resolution (how should it be sharper?). So, this is a very good picture technically, artistically and historically. But Guillom is right, there is violation copyright. Sorry --B.navez 18:30, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose and delete as Copyright violation, see Commons:Deletion requests/Image:Viandox.jpg. guillom 08:21, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

  •  Support urban times are passing, very meaningful picture --B.navez 10:43, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose In general a nice subject, but I think the quality is not good enough. --Taraxacum 11:00, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  •  Neutral a nice idea and composition. The quality is a bit problematic..did you make the photo with a tripod? --AngMoKio 11:04, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
    •  Info Yes I did (1/3s). --Romanceor 13:26, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  •  Support Good composition and original subject. It makes a change from the over-coloured HDR and the macros of insects. --Pymouss44 Tchatcher - 11:11, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  •  Neutral I like the idea and intention very much, but composition and lighting are not perfect in my opinion. Not sure yet. --norro 11:16, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

  •  Support --ShakataGaNai Talk 06:32, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose It's not a terrible image, and the exposure/composition choice are very stylistic. The noise isn't that high due to the SLR choice and perhaps noise reduction software, but overall it is just a little too dark for me and I don't think it is "wow" enough. -- Ram-Man 05:11, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

  •  Oppose Not a striking enough composition for me, and the shadow is not good. --MichaelMaggs 10:18, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose I like really this picture for its lights and its shadows, because it was the purpose of the gardener to get these games with sun rays and I find the photographer gives them back very well, but depth of field doesn't fit : closest poles should be absolutely accurately focused.--B.navez 14:57, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

  •  Oppose As MichaelMaggs. --Karelj 20:42, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
  •  Oppose The shadow detracts from the image and causes too much focus on the hedge at the back rather than the perspective offered by the posts. Perhaps another shot taken earlier in the day would work better? Cpl Syx 13:47, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
