Hi King of Element Collection![edit]

Thanks for adding the German description to File:Titanium crystal bar.jpg. :) Warut (talk) 15:54, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi Warut, Hi King of Element Collection! --> I feel flattered :-) And no problem, I do it gladly and perhaps also for your other samples. A question: do you know me and my simple webside perhaps? Best regards, --Alchemist-hp (talk) 18:07, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I (and probably many other element collectors) know you (not personally though) and your collection web site. Thanks again. Warut (talk) 12:50, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Discharge Tubes[edit]


Do you have the original source files for this? Since these elements are not really related this grouping I don't think would see much use. Can you upload the individual files? The Oxygen I think might be able to be a FP, sorta in-line with the other gas discharge FP's we have. — raeky (talk | edits) 20:10, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Yes and I do it in the next time. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 01:50, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
And here the new images:

--Alchemist-hp (talk) 21:43, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Sweet! I'll check them out in more detail here in a bit, just got my computer working again from having to restore it all day. — raeky (talk | edits) 23:36, 18 July 2010 (UTC)


Hallo Alchemist, warum findet man dich eigentlich nicht bei COM:MOP? Viele Grüße, --Quartl (talk) 08:15, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Weil ich dafür noch keine Zeit hatte. So einfach ist das :-) Außerdem ist mein Englisch nicht so besonders. Viele Grüße, --Alchemist-hp (talk) 18:19, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
Ausreden, nichts als Ausreden :-). Schreib mir einen Text, ich übersetze ihn dir. --Quartl (talk) 20:06, 25 October 2010 (UTC)


I just wanted to say hello, and to say thank you for your photographs. You have some pretty good talent, and it's not often that an edition of the Signpost gets published where I don't see an image of yours noted for gaining featured status. Your series on the elements is top-notch, and I hope you keep up the good work. Bahamut0013 (talk) 12:32, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

File:Strontium destilled crystals.jpg[edit]

Do you still have access to the sample? If yes, could you take a snapshot from a larger distance, showing the entire ampoule? Nergaal (talk) 17:08, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi Nergaal, yes I have this sample. I also can take a snapshot and include it perhaps to the main image on the right down. What do you think? --Alchemist-hp (talk) 21:09, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Glückwunsch zum Bild des Jahres 2010[edit]

Statistisch gesehen, kann ich ja schon gratulieren. (Finde ich super, dass jemand so gute Fotos unter freier Lizenz veröffentlicht.) Commons:Picture of the Year/2010/Galleries/Rocks/Large

Was ich aber eingentlich mitteilen möchte: Die Abstimmung beginnt in Kürze. -- RE rillke questions? 15:49, 28 April 2011 (UTC)


What do you think about blue color of this image? Molecular deuterium continuum? Water (D2O)? Materialscientist (talk) 09:20, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi Materialscientist, it looks for me a bit incorrectly processed. Please compare with my photo. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 20:42, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

I know your photo, and it shows the red component, which is what we should see from deuterium. It seems too weak to me in the top photo, and thus I suspect that all gas photos by that author are contaminated. He is not a scientist - he keeps too many fake or poorly sourced images on his page [1] (he often admits he doesn't know what is shown in some image, but he might not understand some common mistakes).

POTY credit[edit]

POTY 2011, Lake Bondhus Norway

Hello Alchemist,

Your picture Lake Bondhus Norway 2862.jpg will be likely our POTY this year, and i was creating the credits (Commons:Picture_of_the_Year/2011/Credit/Lake_Bondhus_Norway_2862.jpg) and inserted the copyright name in the site you link in your picture as your name. If that isn't your name, or if you don't want it to show (since is the winner will be spread over the internet like wildfire) please feel free to change it.

Congratulations, Béria Lima msg 16:15, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, all are perfect. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 16:40, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Hallo, ich möchte dir noch ganz herzlich zum Bild des Jahres 2011 gratulieren! Habe erst vor kurzem bemerkt, dass dein Foto gewonnen hat, als ich auf deiner Benutzerseite war.. :-D Viele Grüße, -- Wolf im Wald (de) 18:16, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Danke auch Dir. Und hast Du Dir mal angeschaut wie das Bild auf der KEB Seite "zerrissen" wurde!?! Tja, besondere Bilder haben auch viele Kontrahenten. Grüße, --Alchemist-hp (talk) 20:34, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Zu der Zeit war ich auf KEB weniger aktiv - habe mich auch nicht an der Abstimmung/Diskussion beteiligt. Aber mir ist auch schon des öfteren aufgefallen, dass auf Commons eher künstlerische und schöne Bilder „Erfolg haben“ und bei KEB eher enzyklopädisch zweckmäßige Bilder erfolgreich sind. Die Zielsetzung der beiden Projekte ist ja auch eine etwas andere. Daher habe ich bei KEB ja auch hin und wieder Probleme mit meinen zumeist als kitschig bezeichneten Bilder aus der Blauen Stunde, die auf Commons besser ankommen. Dein geniales Foto ist wohl eins der besten Beispiele für diese Unterschiede zwischen FPC/POTY und KEB. Viele Grüße -- Wolf im Wald (de) 23:07, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Ja, jede KEB Seite hat so ihre Eigenheiten. Und das ist auch gut so :-) --Alchemist-hp (talk) 07:35, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Falsche Nutzung (reminder)[edit]

false license!

Very nice photos![edit]

I've used a number of them, mostly metals and minerals, at the English WP -- but had no idea you had contributed so many -- and that so many have been honored as FPs (etc.)

So -- belated thanks, and congratulations, on so many fine ccontributions! Cheers, Pete Tillman (talk) 17:50, 8 November 2012 (UTC), economic geologist

Thanks for your congrats :-) --Alchemist-hp (talk) 18:16, 8 November 2012 (UTC), chemist


Hi, Ive seen your picture on a music album and 1. I hope you're aware. If the case, congratulation ! With best regards --Citron (talk) 10:46, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi Citron, thanks for your info. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 00:36, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Appropriately Licensed[edit]

You participated at the earlier discussion on licence choice for Featured Pictures. A number of users felt that such restrictions should be made at policy level. Please comment at Commons:Requests for comment/AppropriatelyLicensed. This is a proposal to amend this licence policy to disallow future uploads where the sole licence is inappropriate for the media (e.g., GFDL for images). In earlier discussions there were a number of comments that, while reasonable opinions, did not align with Wikimedia's mission for free content. Please read the FAQ before commenting.

Hi, Swedish law makes no distinction between interior and exterior (for buildings). According to the law Buildings may be freely reproduced in pictorial form'. All restrictions and limitations are about "work of fine art" (see Article 24). :@Diliff:--ArildV (talk) 20:52, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Technische Frage[edit]

Siehe Notizen am Bild

lb Alchemist, bzgl. focus stacking habe ich mit nebenstehendem Versuch ein paar Probleme (die auch sicher vorrangig meiner Unerfahrenheit mit dieser Methode zuzuschreiben sind). Verwendet habe ich Photoshop CC. Ich weiß, du hast Heliocon Focus.

Und zwar sind es Unschärfen in bestimmten Bereichen, welche zwar mit Sicherheit auf einem dieser Bilder scharfgestellt waren, aber dann im Folge bei der Überblendung dann ganz offensichtlich für die Ausgabeversion nicht verwendet wurden. Ich kann mir das nur so erklären, dass ich nicht direkt von oben fotografiert habe, sondern in einem ca 45° Winkel, von hinten nach vorne. Die Anhäufung bzw. der verwendete Bereich war von vorne nach hinten ca 3 cm. So hatte ich nicht nur sich immer stärker nähernde Oberflächen, sondern auch verändernde Tiefen durch die Struktur. Die Gesamttiefe ist jedoch nicht mehr als vielleicht 0,5 cm. Vielleicht muss man bei sowas sehr statisch senkrecht von oben fotografieren und einfach von unten nach oben durcharbeiten. Wobei es im Prinzip ja egal ist, denke ich mal. Theoretisch.

Es handelt sich hier um ein dreidimensionales, aber eben auch durchscheinendes Objekt mit sich ständig ändernden Tiefenebenen, ohne einer durchgehenden Oberfläche. Soweit ich diese Technik verstanden habe, wird es immer wieder vorkommen, dass die Ergebnisse nicht perfekt sind und man händisch nacharbeiten muss. Kannst du mir einen Tipp dazu geben? --Hubertl (talk) 23:56, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Hubertel, Photoshop CC hat einfach nur Mist gebaut. Deine Überlegungen dazu sind völlig unnötig. Das einzige Manko der Focus-Stack-Technik sind sich in der Tiefe "kreuzende" Sachen. Einfachstes Beispiel zwei Streichhölzer die übereinander ein Kreuz bilden. An der Grenzschicht zwischen dem unteren und oberen Stück gibt es einen kleinen Bereich der immer "unscharf" bleiben wird. Wenn auf das untere Streichholz fokussiert wird so verdeckt das obere "unscharfe" (es ist dann größer) einen "kleinen" Teil des unteren. Ansonsten siehe dazu auch meine E-Mail. Gruß, --Alchemist-hp (talk) 01:32, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Edit summary[edit]

Go for it :). I would support you. Natuur12 (talk) 22:39, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Windows in Caracas Building.jpg[edit]

I assumed, like User:Julian Herzog, that your post there was a genuine comment on the kind-of Apache vs GNU philosophical approach to placing restrictions on re-use in order to perpetuate the conditions. Or was it simply made to provoke the nominator, which resulted in his joke response and ultimately insults? -- Colin (talk) 09:53, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

@Colin: it was "my two cent" to consider about the CC-0 license, because yes it isn't perpetual. All the re-users can use such images without advertising for Commons. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 10:13, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that's true, but given the nature of The Photographer's juvenile responses, I just wanted to check that that the whole discussion wasn't some in-joke between the pair of you. I'm glad to see it isn't. Your view, similar to GNU, is certainly a valid one but probably best discussed elsewhere on Commons than the nomination page of someone who no longer seems to have any respect for FPC reviewers. -- Colin (talk) 13:44, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I'm happy to have negative votes, but if they were motivated and not with phrases like:I have to say that if I had voted in some of your former nominations I'd have opposed or I suggest you to keep on working in your photographic skills, development and -if possible- equipment and go back to this place in one year...I do not think you'd be happy. you know how I can correct stitching errors with photoshop? thanks Face-smile.svg--LivioAndronico talk 15:03, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

My apologies[edit]

Look at my reply to the discussion. To you too I am sincerely sorry that I hurt. You level of accomplishing that is incomparable, and I will never have the patience to achieve. But both of you to be very regarded by the world. Any beginner will think also apply to our little contest. Beginners do not see that this type of photography is based on a big job. It is this risk of confusion that is dangerous. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 08:09, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Archaeodontosaurus thanks for your very fair words. You enjoy my fullest respect (also Colin). I know, I'm not you. I often provoke, perhaps to often ?! ... ;-) --Alchemist-hp (talk) 08:27, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

My crossed out vote[edit]

Hey, you crossed out my vote here: Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Kos - Sonnenuntergang bei Marmari2.jpg I have been here for more than ten days and I had more than 50 edits before my first vote. In my prefences it says I joined on 7 June 2015, now I didn't make my first edit here unit 8 July, but I have had an account here for more than ten days. So does that count? And it's not like I just showed up here eight days ago, I've been editing on the English Wikipedia before here and I have few uploads there before I started on here. Rainbow unicorn (talk) 21:16, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

@Rainbow unicorn: sorry, you are right. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 21:51, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Der WLM-Countdown hat begonnen[edit]

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg

Hallo Alchemist-hp,

nun ist es wieder soweit. Vom 1. bis zum 30. September findet zum fünften Mal der internationale Wettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments statt. Im Mittelpunkt steht bekanntlich das Fotografieren von Kulturdenkmalen. Du hast an einem der letzten Fotowettbewerbe teilgenommen und wir freuen uns auf weitere Bildbeiträge von Dir.

Viele interessante Motive, nicht nur Burgen und Schlösser, sondern auch Fachwerkhäuser, Brücken und Brunnen, technische und Industriedenkmale und vieles mehr gibt es noch zu fotografieren, damit sie in der Wikipedia dokumentiert werden können. Nützliche Tipps findest du auf unserer WLM-Projektseite. Du kannst gerne individuell Fototouren durchführen oder aber Dich auch Gruppentouren anschließen. Besonders freuen wir uns auf Fotos, die Lücken in den Denkmallisten der Wikipedia ausfüllen.

Darüber hinaus kannst Du auch an der Arbeit der Jury teilnehmen, die Mitte Oktober die Fotos bewerten und die Gewinner ermitteln wird. Bis zum 15. August kannst du hier Deine Bewerbung einreichen.

Viel Erfolg und Spaß beim größten Fotowettbewerb der Wiki(m/p)edia in den bevorstehenden Wettbewerbswochen wünscht Dir das Orga-Team. Wir freuen uns auf Deine Fotos.

( Bernd Gross, 6. August 2015)
