Bonjour Mr Issam Barhoumi, je suis l'auteur et le contributeur de l'article Wikipédia Grande Mosquée de Kairouan. j'ai remarqué que tu as pris plusieurs photos à l'occasion de Wiki Loves Monuments 2015. J'espère que tu prendras également plusieurs photos de la Grande Mosquée de Kairouan ou mosquée Oqba Ibn Nafi : ses extérieurs, ses intérieurs et notamment les éléments de la cour et de la salle de prière (colonnes, maqsura, minbar, etc), ainsi que des photos d'autres monuments de Kairouan : remparts, mausolées, autres mosquées. Salutations très cordiales, Sutherland (d) 13:09, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
You have such wonderful motifs in your country, I´m sure, most picture will be improved, when you use a tripod.
It´s a big misunderstanding, that you can meet the lightning problems, typical for interior pictures, just by raising the ISO rate. the D5200 does not allow more than ISO 400, due to its sensor. Every ISO rate above will just lead to color noise. You have a quite good equipment, use it as a photographer, not a snap-shooter. Take more time for yourself, think about the available light. Use the AV-Mode. And use the spot measure method. And a tripod. --Hubertl 23:02, 29 November 2015 (UTC)
that you placed your nominations wrong. Please, always put your nominations after the <gallery>-Tag. Otherwise, it won´t work.
Much better would be, if you read the explanations on the start page, it is well descripted (english and french), how to do it with Java-script. Use the QInominator, a gadget, which is constructed just for nominating QI. It is much easier and you dont make mistakes. Thank you!
Now, it was the third time. If you don´t communicate, your nominations will be deleted. Point. You misplaced a nomination again today, it´s deleted now. Don´t tell me, nobody haven´t told you anything about this issue. --Hubertl 11:25, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2015 is open!
You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth 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 (2015) 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 were 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.
There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.
I propose to apply a 5:7 ratio (see notes) to reduce empty space. --Cccefalon 10:52, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
I did it my friend --IssamBarhoumi 20:04, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
Good quality. Well done. --Cccefalon 20:06, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
Comment Tilted, check horizon. And also, it is quite hazy. --C messier 12:57, 8 June 2016 (UTC) Comment dear --C messier I fixed the horizon And make it clearer --IssamBarhoumi 02:14, 10 June 2016 (UTC) Support By making clearer I ment add some more contrast, now it looks slightly oversharpened, but IMHO, still acceptable. --C messier 12:17, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
Hello again! The first thing for a good photo is the quality of the light and what color it has. In your picture you had both yellow and blue light. You should chose only one of those. In almost every photoshop program there is a function called "white balance" or just "WB". It is usually a tool that you can point to something in the picture that you want to be absolutely white, grey or black. This adjusts the picture to what photographers call "light temperature". As you see in the picture, the clock is now white instead of light blue as it was before.
After this I used another tool to adjust the total brightness of the picture. This can be done in several ways and you have to look for something called "light adjustment" or something like that. With that you can make a picture lighter or darker. Finally I used a tool in photoshop called a "light brush" and swept it over the darkest shadows to brighten the picture further. I think it would be a great idea if you tested some of these functions on some of your other photos to see what results you can get. But remember that it usually takes years to learn this properly. Good luck! cart-Talk 23:17, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
At first I hesitated here if you should break the rule of perspective correction to preserve the whole lovely arc above the pillars, but then I saw the plastic bag... so I would recommend it anyway. If you correct the perspective, the plastic bag will fall outside the new crop of the picture. W.carter 19:09, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
Dear W.carter I removed the plastic bag by correcting the vertical perspective --IssamBarhoumi 19:55, 7 September 2016 (UTC))
Thank you! That looks so much better. :) Good quality. --W.carter 19:59, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
tilted and to dark. No QI for me --Milseburg 12:43, 9 September 2016 (UTC) Dear Milseburg I fixed the horizon and enlightened it a bit --IssamBarhoumi 14:05, 9 September 2016 (UTC) The horizon is still tilting ccw, but it doesn´t really matter any more for QI. But IMHO it´s still underexposed or taken in unfortunate conditions. You´re free to send it in CR. --Milseburg 10:48, 10 September 2016 (UTC) dear --Milseburg have a look now i want to learn more if it is not OK for you there is no need to send it to CR cuz I am the owner --IssamBarhoumi 13:53, 10 September 2016 (UTC) It´s ok to send own images to CR to ge a third opinion. You´ve made some unexpected improvements. I think it´s enough for QI now. --Milseburg 19:52, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
Good quality however you must add some categories, at least one for the town/city --Christian Ferrer 11:41, 19 September 2016 (UTC) Dear --Christian Ferrer I added the city in all the four photos of the dome --IssamBarhoumi 13:57, 19 September 2016 (UTC) Support ok fine --Christian Ferrer 20:19, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Nice and interesting! Could be a bit sharper and the composition more out of the centre but it's nice. Good quality. --Basotxerri 14:41, 19 September 2016 (UTC) dear Basotxerri I improved th sharpness have a look please --IssamBarhoumi 20:51, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
Dear IssamBarhoumi, thank you for your good will. However, this is the first time that I have set a picture as promoted and an additional enhancement degrades the quality. Please compare both images, the new one looks overprocessed to me. It seems that you've given the image too much sharpness. Furthermore, now there are visible halos on the right side of the wall. You should revert to the first version or apply the modified controls in a finer way. I don't know if I explain myself well... --Basotxerri 14:50, 21 September 2016 (UTC) dear Basotxerri could you please have a look again I improved sharpness in the photo --IssamBarhoumi 22:58, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
OK now, thank you! --Basotxerri 18:18, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
I'd welcome a second opinion, but the quality looks quite acceptable to me. The photo is a bit subdued in lighting, but it's kind of nice to reflect the effect of the clouds that way. -- Ikan Kekek 10:16, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
* Comment Nice and sharp, but there are halos around the stone. Also, may I suggest a more precise file name?--Peulle 09:13, 23 September 2016 (UTC) Comment dear you have to sign your comment but this is my answer I can't change the name of my file because it i the only stone on Ksar Lemsa with a similar sculpture I put that name because it is more useful to know the place in that case for the halos it i due to contrast due to the clouds and light in the background. dear Hubertl could you give us your opinion here --IssamBarhoumi 15:23, 22 September 2016 (UTC) Comment Sorry, forgot to sign last time. I think the file should have a more accurate name, such as sculpture at Ksar Lemsa, so that it's easier to find on commons when searching for it. If I shot an image of the Eiffel Tower and called the image "view of Paris", it would be inaccurate. --Peulle 09:16, 23 September 2016 (UTC) dear Peulle I requested a file rename have a nice day --IssamBarhoumi 10:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC) dear Peulle the name has been chnaged IssamBarhoumi Fair enough.--Peulle 09:56, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
Good and interesting photo and good categories (you are learning ^^) but the horizon is tilted and the description needs to be more than just one word. W.carter 13:52, 8 October 2016 (UTC) dear W.carter I changed the description by editing the file and I fixed the horizon have a look please --IssamBarhoumi 16:40, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
Now that is much better. :) Good quality. --W.carter 10:02, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
Ok now, but still, I believe that the result could be better. If you like I can process your RAW files to show you how I'd do it. --Poco a poco 08:30, 9 October 2016 (UTC) dear Poco a poco on that day I took photos in JPG format I do not have RAWs --IssamBarhoumi 14:46, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Nice photo but it needs a bit more than a one-word description. --W.carter 13:58, 8 October 2016 (UTC) dear W.carter I improved the description have a look please --IssamBarhoumi 14:42, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! Good quality. W.carter 09:55, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
it is tilted on the left --Christian Ferrer 08:16, 12 October 2016 (UTC) dear Christian Ferrer done have a look please --IssamBarhoumi 22:21, 12 October 2016 (UTC) Support ok now, a little advice : you should decrease a bit the saturation and increse a bit the contrast, it's a nice image! --Christian Ferrer 12:49, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
You have been lately active on FP. So I took a look into your images and for me the following ones standed out.
Maybe that could give some idea on what might work there. Even thou I'd have to admit, that many of those images would not get a FP star in nominated. There are some minor issues, that are always picked on, as FP pictures are expected to be nearly flawless. But the locations and the images like that would definitely have a great potential. There is this unexplainable something, what creates wow.
By now I've personally added nearly 5200 images to Commons, but only 5 of my own images have been featured so far. That just how it is. So keep on trying and you'll definitely soon get there. Good luck! Kruusamägi (talk) 16:42, 19 October 2016 (UTC) Comment dear Kruusamägi thank you my friend I will begin with your selection. By the way I have been in Estonia in 2012 in Tallin ... it is a beautiful country :) --IssamBarhoumi (talk) 08:35, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
@IssamBarhoumi: Oh, I should have looked more carefully at the file page. Anyway, it's a great image, despite having too much noise reduction. The colours and the composition are really nice, you just need a better way of handling noise in your processing software. Regards -- Thennicke (talk) 01:13, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi! Please remember that you have to complete the creation of the nomination page before adding the new nomination to the FPC list, otherwise it can be reverted as it was done here. I have fixed it now, but keep it in mind. Good luck with the nomination! --cart-Talk 11:38, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
