Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

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. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Proposals for delete of photos from Albania[edit]

Hi, are you sure, that images of public buildings from Albania must be deleted:

According to article 12 of the Albanian copyright law, when a publicly displayed copyrighted work is the main subject of a derivative work, that derivative work cannot be used for commercial purposes.

Article 12: "It is allowed without the author’s approval and without payment or remuneration the reproduction, broadcasting or the communication to the public by wire of a picture of an architectonic work, of a fine arts work, photographic work or applied arts work placed in a public area, excluding the cases when the picture is the main theme of the reproduction, broadcasting or communication and when it is used for commercial purposes."

--Jirka Dl (talk) 20:36, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

@Commons:Deletion requests/File:TiranaFußballstadion.JPG: This was wrong. The building was built before 1944. Please have it reinstated. --Albinfo (talk) 17:07, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Two more images that of a building constructed in the late 1930ies, early 1940ies.
The university used this building after its foundation, but the building is much older!
This is very sad that you have images deleted which were alright. --Albinfo (talk) 17:24, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Why are you deleting my pics from Albania? Those pics are my own work and they are alright? It looks like you have a problem with pics from Albania? Zeke (talk) 20:39, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Duplicates[edit]

Hello! Instead of tagging duplicates for deletion, please use the duplicate template Com:Duplicate. Makes our work much easier, all image links can be replaced automatically. Thanks for all your work! :) --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 06:48, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for enhancing colors in my picture! Doronenko (talk) 06:20, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Upload new version[edit]

I have seen that you have uploaded a new version of File:Geneve Saint-Pierre E.jpg to get a photo with better colors. In what aspect did you improve the colors? In my opinion the shadow parts in the photo are now so dark that you cannot see the details any more.

In the list of your contributions I have seen that you have uploaded hundreds of new versions of photos. I checked a few and found in most cases not a real improvement of the colors. Why are you uploading in high speed new versions and what are your criteria? Regards, Wouter (talk) 13:43, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

I guess than in more than one case you're right about the absence of real improvement in the pictures, but in some other cases the change is more than evident and even some of the original uploaders thanked me for the changes I've made to their pictures. Actually, my goal is to put more colour to some pictures where it seems that too much light (or too much darkness) in the pic takes off most of the original colours, adding something like a white (or black, depends on the pics subject) filter over it. I guess that my english level can't really help me to explain with precision what are the exact changes I'm making to the pics, but you can be assured that I'm not doing it with bad intentions... Quite the opposite actually, since I'm contributing in Wikipedia and Commons since nearly five years, without posing any real problems due to my behaviour or my contributions. Of course, then, it's up to you or other users (especially the original uploaders of the pics I've made changes to) to revert them to their original state. No offense, of course, would be taken by me as it's a scenario I was quite prepared to (I guess not all people would accept with the same enthusiasm any changes which are made to their pics...), even from the start of my actions. As I said before, in order to sum up, if you think that some of the newer version of pics I uploaded don't look nice or can't really stay up for any reason, feel free to revert them; and the same is for the original uploaders. I know it can be seen as... at least suspicious to have a user uploading newer versions of other people works, but everything I've done, was done in good faith and in order to improve the pics and all of it with good intentions. If this offended or posed any problems to other users then I can only say that I'm really sorry for this and that it wasn't in any of my intentions. Regards, --Glorious 93 (talk) 14:20, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your fast and detailed reply Glorious. I was just curious as to why all these uploads. I copied your answer here to have it complete. Regards, Wouter (talk) 17:55, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Αντίθεση[edit]

Βλέπω ότι έχεις επεξεργαστεί αρκετές φωτογραφίες, όπου η κύρια επεξεργασία που έχει γίνει (μοιάζει να) είναι η προσθήκη αντίθεσης. Ναι μεν είναι χρήσιμη όταν μια εικόνα είναι επίπεδη, αλλά η πολλή αντίθεση δεν βελτιώνει πάντα μια εικόνα καθώς:

  1. Σκοτεινιάζει τις ήδη σκούρες περιοχές, με αποτέλεσμα να γίνουν ολόμαυρες (και να χαθεί πληροφορία που έχουν εκεί)
  2. Αυξάνει τον κορεσμό στα χρώματα, με αποτέλεσμα αν προστεθεί περισσότερο αντίθεση από όσο πρέπει, να μη φαίνονται πραγματικά (πχ, πολύ πράσινα ή μοβ)

Αυτά τα βασικά. --C messier (talk) 21:15, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Δε μπορώ να σε καταλάβω. Να φαίνεται επ'ακριβώς από που προέρχεται. Άλλωστε, και τα διπλότυπα σβήνονται με ταχεία. Και να φαίνεται ότι πλέον προσθέτει επίτηδες και λάθος περιγραφές. --C messier (talk) 13:15, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
