Titicus Reservoir[edit]

First of all, sorry for my harsh comment - maybe it was too harsh, but comparing to other suggested QI (not even images with QI tag granted), this photo is very bad.

I think that it'd be very difficult to digitally alter this picture for it to meet QI standards. The original picture is rather small, so there's no space to work on. Any noise removal will make this shot blurry.

About colors - the original looks better for me. Blue sky is more natural than purple one. Also, on this purple one, trees have purple haze around them - it's very unnatural.

Tilt - well, I understand your feeling, because I have shot of lake in mountains made not from center of it, but a bit to the left, what gives impression of not even horizon. But I understand that it's a technical fault and I can't suggest it for QI tag.

I'm sorry to say that, but I think that this photo should be taken again. --Leafnode 15:12, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Daniel, i noticed you reverted a category on this item. There seems to be a movement here to stop using the Old postcards of the United States category, and replace it with Postcards of <state> category, sometimes combinded with New York in the 1900's category. I haven't found any "organized" recat/project page concerning this... opinions? (I'm trying to go with the flow concerning categories) Parkerdr 03:47, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Flickr images[edit]

The next time you are uploading flickr images without modifying them, check out the experimental service using the flickruploadbot. It goes super fast, it's easy and automatic. It takes care of all of the licensing verification so that a trusted user doesn't need to look over the images. Cheers! Royalbroil 03:03, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

well Image:Terrorists in Mumbai, 2008-11-26.jpg is Maharahstra Times/AP[1]. The other is I think one of an AFP series.Geni (talk) 19:01, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Category[edit]

I recently created Category:Historic district contributing properties in Washington, D.C., but it's already in need of diffusion. Plus, I'm not even close to being done with adding the category to related images. So my question is do you think the category is a good idea? AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 20:58, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for replying not replying. Your courtesy is overwhelming. AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 21:54, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Flickr reviewer[edit]

Hello Daniel, and thank you for your application to be a flickr reviewer. The application has been removed as successful, and you've been added to the list of reviewers. Congratulations! Please see Commons:Flickr images if you haven't done so already, and the backlogs at Category:Flickr images needing human review and Category:Flickr review needed. A helpful script for easy-tagging flickr images is at importScript('User:Patstuart/Flickrreview.js'); (which you can add to your monobook.js), and you can add {{user reviewer}} or {{user trusted}} to your user page if you wish. Thank you for your work on Commons! :) PeterSymonds (talk) 12:33, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Basquiat[edit]

Hi, you have deleted two images of Jean-Michel Basquiat, why? all the pics come from This file on flickr, and the licence is CC-BY. --FENIX 89 (talk) 19:10, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Your photo[edit]

Hi, Daniel! I promote Your photo. Composition really nice. Quality good, but no ideal.

Note 1: If you create the best version of the same file, it is not necessary to create the second file. Use "Upload the new version" tool.

Note 2: If file updating not required, then simply copy photo file from a camera as a file. The camera is similar a USB disk, or use cardreadear. Do not use Photoshop, if it not required. Any edit become worse quality.

Sorry, if my english is not perfect.

With best regards,

--George Chernilevsky (talk) 20:10, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

If you would like to nominate another image, please do so at Quality images candidates.

File:Taylor-Corwin House.jpg[edit]

I notice you put File:Taylor-Corwin House.jpg under Category:Greek Revival architecture. I wonder if that's useful: the only thing "Greek" about it is a few pseudo-Corinthian columns. Maybe in Category:Corinthian columns instead? Because I don't think we'd want to place every building with one of those as "Greek Revival". - And File:George Briggs House, Bourne, MA.jpg seems even more marginal for the category. - Jmabel ! talk 01:11, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

I was just following what the NPS says for both of them (and, BTW, "Greek Revival" has more to do with the floor plan and overall form of the house ... many houses that followed that style didn't have columns or any sort of decoration out front). Daniel Case (talk) 06:05, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I've noticed that NPS always seems to feel compelled to specify a style, even when the building really doesn't particularly fit one. I suppose that if you look only at the front section, the Taylor-Corwin House is a bit closer to Greek Revival, and that the back section is probably a later addition. The Briggs one, though, seems to me to be really stretching it. I guess my own tendency is not to add these "style" categories unless I think the building is a good illustration of the style. So... whenever NPS/NRHP etc. specifies a style, you think it's worth us classifying accordingly? - Jmabel ! talk 06:12, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Ah, third story being a 20th century addition makes it (formerly) more GR. It was done so smoothly I didn't realize that one was a later addition. - Jmabel ! talk 06:23, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Relicense[edit]

Hi Daniel Case, we're currently doing a big license migration. Would you be willing to relicense you {{GFDL}} uploads (like File:Peekskill Presbyterian Church.jpg) under the {{Cc-by-sa-3.0}}? Multichill (talk) 11:47, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Sure (I had thought the template I had been using was updated to reflect the licensing change. I guess not). I already migrated that one, and have uploaded another new image under the new one and will do so in the future. I suppose I'll have to go back and migrate all my old ones, too. Daniel Case (talk) 14:38, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
We have bots for that, just needed your approval :-). Multichill (talk) 14:47, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Ok ✓ Done. Multichill (talk) 14:57, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Commons upload from Flickr[edit]

Hi Daniel, I just came across the three images you just uploaded from Flickr. They were flaged by the FlickrBot because the image you uploaded was not the same as the original but an altered and cropped one. Would you mind uploading the original Flickr images first, wait for the clearance of the FlickrBot (usually overnight) and than upload your altered image over your original upload? This procedure would not necessitate any human intervention and would also leave a door open for further photo processing from the 'original'. Don't get me wrong, Flickr is a great photo resource and your photo manipulation really improved the pictures but I still would prefer to have the original Flickr picture somewere on Wiki-Commons. Tahnks for your consideration, --Mirko Junge (talk) 13:18, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

OK, I'll do it but ... is this some new policy change I was unaware of? I'm a reviewer too and I'd like to know this. I always edit Flickr images for use here prior to upload (isn't that the point of us not accepting ND images?) and neither bot nor human has ever said something like this before (I always thought that as long as the image description disclosed the alteration, it was OK). Daniel Case (talk) 16:18, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
No human intervention is neccessary when you upload the original flie as stored in Flcikr and wait for the FlickrBot to clear the image. After the initial clearance you can overload the original with your cropped, manipulated i.e. derivative work without any problem. How cool is that? Let the robot do the work! Bye --Mirko Junge (talk) 08:01, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Overlook Mountain[edit]

As discussed on English Wikipedia, I just uploaded some images to Category:Catskill Mountains. Hopefully they'll be of use.--Otherlleft (talk) 01:55, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Now that I have a reason that's academic rather than tourist, I'll try to get some shots of the mountain itself, and broader perspective shots of the ruins.--Otherlleft (talk) 18:19, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
Geez, haven't been back here since the name change! Please take a look at this and offer any advice or monkeying about; for the moment it's the image I will be using in the article I'm drafting on the mountain. If you think a sunnier day is needed, the weather's only getting better!--True Pagan Warrior (talk) 13:45, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Transfer of SVG images[edit]

Please be aware when you are copying SVG images from Wikipedia to save the SVG version of the file. Your latest uploads (File:Target old logo.svg, File:Target logo.svg File:Circuit City logo.svg, File:Best Buy Logo.svg) you saved the PNG preview generated by Wikipedia.

To do save the SVG, click the link underneth the images, and select save as. Do not right click the image itself, and select save as, as that will give you the PNG generated by Wikipedia.

e.g. Filename.svg‎ (SVG file, nominally 432 × 574 pixels, file size: 3 KB)

Also consider using CommonsHelper as it automatically fills out the template and transfers the images history. --Svgalbertian (talk) 22:29, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Use of your image in Businessweek[edit]

An image which you uploaded to Wikimedia Commons of Scranton, PA, was recently used by the magazine Bloomberg Businessweek in an article entitled 'Best Places to Raise Your Kids'. The image appeared without attribution and did not mention that it may be reproduced under a Creative Commons license. I thought it would be helpful to notify you of this fact. Contact information for Businessweek is available on its website. NotFromUtrecht (talk) 21:36, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Cool![edit]

I don't think I've ever seen the area from that angle. Seems like a good overview image to illustrate the Taconic on the NRHP lists etc. BTW, I liked your POTY edit summary comments. :) –Juliancolton | Talk 15:49, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

File:Schunemunk_conglomerate_and_pine.jpg does NOT show Pinus virginiana... it is Pinus rigida[edit]

The pine in this photo ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Schunemunk_conglomerate_and_pine.jpg ) is NOT Pinus virginiana. It is in fact Pinus rigida. Besides the appearance, you can confirm just by looking at a comparative range map:

Pinus virginiana - http://www.ncsu.edu/project/dendrology/index/plantae/vascular/seedplants/gymnosperms/conifers/pine/pinus/contortae/virginia/habitat.html

Pinus rigida - http://www.ncsu.edu/project/dendrology/index/plantae/vascular/seedplants/gymnosperms/conifers/pine/pinus/australes/pitch/habitat.html

I will be working on fixing the links on the various pages this photo is shown, and removing it from the Pinus virginiana page, but the owner should correct the links on the photo file as well. 74.45.40.144 17:48, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

File:Donald Miller.jpg[edit]

Critically evaluate Flickr licenses File:Donald Miller.jpg has been marked as a copyright violation. You may have preserved the information shown on Flickr correctly when transferring the image here, but the Flickr uploader is not the copyright holder of this image. Either the image was created by someone else, or it is a derivative of someone else's work. As stated in Commons:Licensing, only the copyright holder may issue a license, so the one shown on Flickr is invalid.

Always remember to critically evaluate Flickr licenses. Photostreams with professional-looking photographs, album covers, posters, and images in a wide range of styles or quality taken by many different cameras often indicate that the Flickr uploader either does not understand or does not care about copyright matters. See Commons:Questionable Flickr images for a list of known bad Flickr users.

Good morning,

You validated the two following files:

They both belong to the following Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gubanova/

You don't see anything problematic in the different media offered by this Flickr account? Like a collection of documents from several sources? I started Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Iamsmart andyoucantoo to clarify the situation.

Please remember each time you review a picture, the community trusts you to have made basic checks (we of course don't require full enquiries) the Flickr account uses the CC licenses a legitimate way. --Dereckson (talk) 07:52, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Train station interiors[edit]

I see you created a category for Train station interiors in New York, and a few subsequent categories. If I wasn't so glad you did it, I'd be disappointed that you beat me to it. So I created one for California, but honestly, it was a toss up between that, and Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. ----DanTD (talk) 01:33, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

The weird thing is, I keep thinking there might be more. There are so many interior shots from Grand Central Terminal, I was ready to split off the platform images, until somebody else made one for the Main Concourse. ----DanTD (talk) 01:41, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
UPDATE - As it turned out, neither of the two states were candidates for state-specific train station interior categories. Instead I made categories for Massachusetts and Missouri. But Pennsylvania should be next. --DanTD (talk) 19:29, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Your Comment - Guidelines "Featured pictures"[edit]

In den guidelines for "Featured pictures" you can read: "Please don't forget that the image you are judging is somebody's work. Avoid using phrases like 'it looks terrible' and 'I hate it'. If you must oppose, please do so with consideration. Also remember that your command of English might not be the same as someone else's. Choose your words with care." Nevertheless, you have written to an user: "...it's just another one of the trillions of cat pictures on the Internet"". I would have considered this as an insult, because every living being is individual and a subject. For example, currently several altars are presented as potential "Featured pictures". But nobody writes justifiably: "O no, a oller altar over again ...". Greeting, --BlackIceNRW (talk) 14:06, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I was partially upset about the way an XfD had been closed on enwiki, and there were a couple of other cat pictures clearly not up to FPC standards in nomination (Honestly, I think we should have a list of subjects—in addition to cats, sunsets without any specific geographic context, crepuscular rays and autumn color come to mind—where we should tell new nominators that their picture better be so good that it makes think we've never seen one before, since so many people nominate images of them.

Berlin Hauptbahnhof[edit]

Hi Daniel, here you said that you wanted the picture with a bluer sky. Well, here it is. Do you think I can nominate the new version for FP? Should we do a replace procedure or can it stand for itself? Thanks for your opinion! --Code (talk) 06:04, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi Code. Sorry to intrude on your message to Daniel, but I just wanted to add my comments. I think it's so similar to the other FP that we should probably replace it. I think the sky is much better although, as I commented on your other nomination, I think you could have achieved a much nicer blue sky by just adjusting the white balance. Anyway, one other issue with this image is the HDR. I don't think the dynamic range of the scene required HDR at all! And what it has done is create problems in the reflections on the water (I have this problem too when doing HDR photography of rivers or lakes). One way to fix this if you still want to keep the HDR tone mapping of the train station is to copy and paste the water from the normal exposure onto the HDR tone mapped version. It should look almost the same (it isn't a high dynamic range situation), and it will have better reflections without the ghost problems. Just my two cents. :-) Diliff (talk) 08:00, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
  • @Diliff: Thank you very much for your hint. You are right. I used HDR in this case to avoid chromatic noise in the dark areas underneath the bridge but indeed this lead to problems with the water. Maybe this is not really the scene which requires HDR. I think I will completely rework this picture in the next days and then see if I can nominate it for FP. You are certainly right that we should do a replace procedure here. However, I think on the other (older) picture the reflection is somewhat better. --Code (talk) 08:31, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Looking for advice on improving the quality of my photographs[edit]

Daniel,

Thanks for voting in a recent Feature Picture nomination of one of my photographs. This was the first time one of my photos has ever been nominated for FP status, which is quite exciting for me, although I agree with your assessment that this image is not worthy of said status. However, now that I have been slowly improving as an amateur photographer over the past few years and I am the proud owner of a Sony ILCE-5100 mirrorless camera, I think I have a good opportunity to work toward FP-quality photographs in the future.

If you don't mind me asking, what simple (or not so simple) tips might you have for a photographer like myself? What improvements can I make when I'm actually capturing photos? Or maybe is there a default setting with my camera that I should change? (I haven't changed any of the defaults, at least not intentionally.)

Any and all guidance you can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Criticism[edit]

Could you please stick to reviewing the images and discussing reviews made. Both times we have clashed recently you have gone off in a tangent and the conversation thus deteriorated on both sides. FPC is a public forum where users vote and review and discuss their votes and reviews, as well as giving advice on how the nominator's image / image-making might be improved. On the Pelican FPC I criticised your requirement that the noise be fixed in order to earn support. Now we can disagree on whether there is too much noise and whether pixel peeping is harming the project but you cannot, absolutely cannot, ask me to shut up just because I disagree with you and wish to express that. I can respect your right to make whatever comment or vote you like, but don't ask me to respect a comment or vote by keeping quiet. Life doesn't work like that. Do not respond to criticism of your review by making personal attacks.

The opinions expressed at FPC matter. You don't seem to be in the habit of nominating your own images, so perhaps you just aren't aware of what it is like as a nominator. I know users who downsize their photos to 6MP to try to escape the pixel peeping comments. And I know photographers who have given up in frustration at the ridiculous comments that are sometimes made here. There's a constant churn of users at FPC and the first thing anyone does when joining a group is to align oneself to the culture -- so if one sees a pixel peeping culture then that's what perpetuates. If one sees a culture where portraits (especially if not by a FPC regular) are given an especially hard time, then that's what perpetuates.

We are all learning here. Learning how to take better pictures. And learning how to review pictures. Working out what matters and what doesn't. What works and what doesn't. That requires discussion and challenging and testing opinions. -- Colin (talk) 19:34, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Pincushion distortion in Lauderdale Tower picture[edit]

Hi Daniel Case, I was looking at your recently promoted Featured Picture: File:Lauderdale Tower, Barbican Estate, London.jpg. I noticed there's a lot of pincushion distortion. To illustrate this, I have drawn some straight lines in red here. Could you take a look? Thanks. dllu (t,c) 05:52, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

In which cases is perspective correction appropriate?[edit]

Wohnanlage Tannenbusch

Daniel, first of all, thanks for your comments!

Up to now, I'm still a bit unsecure according to the question "In which cases is perspective correction appropriate? (or not)"

According to the image shown right, you mentioned In focus and does not need perspective correction ... yay!.
In your comment you highlighted does not. This highlighting irritated me a bit.

To illustrate my concerns: Recently I provided two different versions of a building photo to the QI community, to request the communities opinions according to the mentioned question, by these two postings:

As a result both versions have been promoted – this wasn't a really help for me. But it seemed, the first version took more people in interest. This fits to my assumtion and epectation. So I got confirmed: A close-up view of a building shouldn't be processed to have vertical lines, because it doesn't fit to human recognition.

On the other hand, I got the impression, a more distant view of a building (like "Wohnanlage Tannenbusch") should be processed to have vertical lines. Therefore your comment irritated me a bit. Cheers, --Hasenläufer (talk) 14:43, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

  • I know you're asking Daniel here, but as someone who has done a lot of architectural photography, I think I might have something to say on the matter. There's no hard and fast rule, but it's generally agreed that vertical corrections are a good idea (for a number of complicated reasons), except where the angle of view is so high that correcting the verticals results in too much distortion. Exactly how much is 'too much'? Well, that's subjective, but you usually know it when you see it. Objects and shapes at the edges of the scene are too geometrically distorted. Partial correction can be a good idea to minimise the effect of distortion in these situations, and for some people, it results in a more 'realistic' looking image, but any perspective choice is a compromise in some way - there's no 'right' way to portray a three dimensional scene in a two dimensional format. I would argue that leaning vertical lines are not what our eye sees though, because we don't look at a wide angle scene in the same way that we look at a photo. Our eye only views a small area of a scene at a time and we create a 'mental map' of the scene that doesn't really have a true two dimensional equivalent. But what I will add is that the reason our eyes don't see leaning vertical lines in person is because verticals only lean inwards when they are 'off centre'. When you are looking upwards and your eye is centred on a vertical line, it is straight. If we could accurately perceive the angle of lines at the edge of our vision, they would indeed be leaning inwards, but the truth is, we really can't do that. Our vision at the periphery is very poor and we really only have a vague sense of what's there and much of that is populated by our memory of what we saw there when we looked moments earlier. Our brain does play a great trick on us by making us perceive our vision to be much better than it actually is. The truth is that our foveal vision is somewhere between 2 and 5 degrees wide - the equivalent of a 300mm to 800mm lens. Sometimes I think that much of what we consider to be 'natural' looking is merely derived not from what our eyes actually see, but from what we are most familiar: regular photos with uncorrected verticals. Anyway, I digress. :-) Diliff (talk) 12:37, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Diliff, thanks for your comment. I agree a lot. Please take a look at this article, and what is mentioned about the chain: "The chain links are tapered toward the bottom of a length of 150 mm to 130 mm and of a width of 74 mm to 70 mm. Thus the impression is from the perspective seen from below gained, have the chain into the entire length of the same thickness." (I added this sentence recently, it's a translation form the German article. Maybe Google translate didn't make the best job.) --Hasenläufer (talk) 14:57, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi Hasenläufer, I've made some small changes to the English in the article. The meaning of the sentence was understandable but the grammar wasn't correct so I've improved it. :-) The tapering if the chain links is a clever idea and this was done in many architectural designs to either decrease or increase the effect of perspective (depending on what they wanted to achieve!). Diliff (talk) 09:27, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
Perspective correction is necessary, but it would ruin this image
An image that did get QI status after modest perspective corrections (see old image at page)
@Hasenläufer, Diliff: Here's a perfect example from my own work of the perspective-correction conundrum. I love this picture; the color and detail exceeded my expectations. But I won't be nominating it for even QI because when I tried to correct the perspective, I didn't have enough room at the top. And it's so obviously necessary ... just look at the buildings on the right.

I suppose I'll have to go back there some other day under similar conditions and shoot from further away. If I can.

Of course, sometimes it does work, as the other photo suggests. Daniel Case (talk) 05:00, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Yes, that's a pretty good example of when it's not worth correcting - you need to allow more space around the sides because the image is effectively cropped by the perspective adjustment. Similarly, when I do my wide angle panoramas, huge chunks of the captured scene [have to be cropped out because they don't fit within the bounds of the rectangular framing (example here). If you were to judge the framing of your panorama based on the edges of the captured scene, you'd be disappointed to find important elements missing! Btw, regarding going back and shooting it again from further away, as you say that's not always possible, or introduces foreground objects that get in the way. That's always a problem in Europe - there's signage, fencing, cars, etc everywhere! If you want an uninterrupted view, you have to get up close and accept the huge inevitable distortions. Diliff (talk) 09:27, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
Daniel Case, according to the Newton Street photo: You made a small "leaning in angle" at the left side, but at the right side, the last building has a straight vertical edge. Isn't it a rule of thumb, to achieve identical "leaning in angles" at both sides of the subject? --Hasenläufer (talk) 11:08, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
"Haus Axe" – it seems, fixing perspective problems of the building is not possible without distortions of the fence at the foreground

Daniel Case, Diliff, thanks for your comments. Yes, I'm aware, taking close-ups of buildings needs to spend enough room around the building while taking the photo, to make later perspective corrections possible. Quite recently I started to make perspective corrections of photos with perspective problems in two vanishing points, following the procedere mentioned in the video tutorial at Adobe's help page Perspective warp, My first results of adapting this procedere are this and this photo. But, when I came to a third try to fix a photo, I got problems by fixing "Haus Axe". At a first glance, it seems to be possible to make perspective corrections of the building as in the other cases. But in this case of "Haus Axe", beside the building, there is a second subject at the photo which caused me headache: It's the fence in the foreground. Every time, I tried to fix the perspective of the building, the fence is concerned too and has big distortions at the bottom right corner of the image. So, my question is: What is the specific problem in this case? My assumption is: The problem is caused by two different horizontal positions of the central edge, the middle starting line of the perspective correction. The horizontal position of the fence's "edge" is right of the building's edge. It seems, "perspective warp" comes to a limit in this case and it might be impossible, to fix the perspective problems in this case. --Hasenläufer (talk) 10:28, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Michiel, at Commons:Quality images candidates/Archives January 11 2016 you mentioned "Perspective problem and I don't think it is repairable". Did you mean, the problem is caused by the fence, as I assumed above? (BTW, at January 11, I wasn't aware of the image nomination, initiated by User:Leit.) --Hasenläufer (talk) 10:42, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Could you explain exactly what you think is wrong about the fence? It's not clear to me what the issue is. I don't see 'big distortions' at the bottom right corner. The fence line does appear to be raised, as if the elevation of the ground increases on the right side. But it doesn't look terrible, and maybe that's just how it is. If that's the problem that you're describing, it should be quite easy to fix. Also, I did notice that the right side of the image is leaning outwards a tiny amount. Not by much, and I don't think it's serious enough to complain about, but I'm just mentioning it in case that's also what you're describing. I wouldn't say it's a problem only with the fence though. Both the building and the fence are leaning outward, but the fence leans a bit more. That's not unexpected though, not all fences are properly vertical, whereas buildings usually are. Diliff (talk) 11:07, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry for not expressing my concerns clear enough and leading you to wrong directions. The problem with the fence occurres during processing a "perspective warp" in Photoshop. I didn't publish an image whith such an effect. --Hasenläufer (talk) 12:40, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
    • Actually, the only (possible) issue that I can clearly see is that the building nearest to the camera has a roof line that doesn't have the same vanishing point as the building behind it. The only explanation I can find is that the building is not on the same axis. I had a look on Google Maps using the geocoding on the image page and indeed the buildings are not aligned. The foreground building is not aligned with the fence or street but the background building is. Perhaps this is the 'perspective problem' that Michiel refers to. If so, I think he's wrong - it's because of the building's geometry and alignment. Diliff (talk) 11:16, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
      • I don't know how to expalin this correctly but I think the corner of the building has to move a bit downstairs. I did not realize that you did not know this photo was nominated by somebody else, so I am really sorry that I have declined this photo instead colour your photo yellow and move your photo for discussion --Michielverbeek (talk) 22:03, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

In the meantime I tried again, to reduce perspective errors of the "Haus Axe" photo. The mentioned "big distortions at the bottom right corner" isn't the problem (it seems, I made processing errors). The problem is: When I try to change the height of the building, to make it a bit flatter, the fence and the curbside get knees. If I try to avoid these knees, I come back to the original height. So, I give up to fix this photo. --Hasenläufer (talk) 16:57, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
