Fort de Giromagny, ma remarque
Je te présente mes excuses pour le caractère un peu lapidaire de mes remarques sous deux de tes dernières propositions en page des Images de Qualité.
Pour celle du fort de Giromagny, voici mon explication. (J'envahis ta page, car il est compliqué d'être bref sous une photo parmi les autres, et surtout dans une langue étrangère que je ne manipule qu'avec précaution).
Familier de ses (et de ces) images, j'avais bien reconnu la "patte" (et le sujet de prédilection) de ComputerHotline, aussi me suis-je étonné de voir ton pseudo sous cette photo, entre la célèbre "Vague" nippone et St Vaast. J'ai cru à une erreur.
S'il est fréquent que nous proposions les images les uns des autres, il est d'usage que nous citions l'auteur dans le corps de la proposition (tu en trouveras d'ailleurs des exemples dans les propositions en cours).
Par ailleurs, il y a peu de temps, un dysfonctionnement du système a entraîné l'apparition fantaisiste de signatures, et l'attribution sauvage de photos (ou de commentaires) à des personnes qui n'en étaient pas l'auteur, d'où une certaine confusion, notamment dans l'adressage des notifications de promotions.
La conjonction de ces divers éléments m'a amené à attirer l'attention sur ces deux images, afin que tout éventuel malentendu puisse être rapidement dissipé, le cas échéant.
En ce qui me concerne, voilà donc qui est fait.
J'espère que ces explications t'auront satisfaite et éclairée.
Je te souhaite une bonne continuation, un de ces jours nous nous croiserons dans les couloirs du Louvre...
Bien cordialement, (j'aurais mis un peu plus de "matière" autour de ton Artémis d'Ephèse napolitaine, moi, notamment sous ses pieds, non ? Mais quelle merveille !)--Jebulon (talk) 15:08, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Souvent, les auteurs ignorent même que leur image a été proposée, et a fortiori promue (d'ailleurs, comment le sauraient-ils ?), car c'est le "proposeur" qui reçoit la notification. Puis-je te suggérer l'idée, si cela t'arrive, de déposer une copie de cette notification sur la page-utilisateur de l'auteur de l'image ? Ça ne coûte pas grand-chose, et crois-moi, pour l'avoir expérimenté, activement et passivement, c'est une petite surprise qui fait toujours plaisir! --Jebulon (talk) 21:11, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Main subject looks very good, but the background shadow is a bit odd. --Iifar 14:36, 14 October 2012 (UTC) I've checked the original RAW file; the picture hasn't been retouched at all. --Jastrow 14:51, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
I have a doubt with the name of the author of this photograph...--Jebulon 19:29, 11 October 2012 (UTC) I don't understand this remark. This picture was shot by User:ComputerHotline, as are the other pics of the category. --Jastrow 22:01, 11 October 2012 (UTC)Thanks for explanations, doubt removed.--Jebulon 10:17, 12 October 2012 (UTC) Support --Iifar 18:07, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Good quality. --Mattbuck 19:42, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Picture Request - Investiture of Zimrilim
Greetings Marie. First of all, thank you for the quality photos of Ancient Near Eastern artefacts that you've been uploading to Commons, absolutely brilliant. I'd like to request a photo, if it's not too much trouble, when you find yourself at the Louvre. The en:Investiture of Zimrilim article is badly in need of a quality picture that captures the whole mural. There are quite a few photos on common but none of them actually shows the whole fresco (which is important to see the strict symmetry, and I'm a little surprised by the blue hue (which might just be the lighting) as compared to the photos on the Louvre website. Thank you in advance! Best, Zozo2kx (talk) 09:29, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks Marie! I appreciate it. Perhaps, if at all possible and you happen to have the time while there, you can also take a photo of the Stele of Baal of Ugarit (I'm planning to write about it this weekend). Again, thanks in advance. Zozo2kx (talk) 19:31, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks Marie, no worries, I'll use that photo for now. Terribly sorry for any inconvenience; but I think I've been a bit spoiled by the excellent photos you uploaded of Ebih-Il which I'm writing about now. Merci beaucoup. :) Zozo2kx (talk) 04:13, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Greetings Marie. I'm thinking of nominating your photo of Ebih-Il as a featured picture on enWiki, any thoughts? I have absolutely no experience in that whatsoever, so if you don't think it's a worthwhile idea do let me know (it should be on the main page as a lead hook for DYK anyway, but I think the photo, and the statue, should be highlighted further). On a related note, I'm using the photo on a large poster (A1) and I'm wondering if you wouldn't mind uploading a higher resolution one (if you still have the original?). One last thing; the DYK for the Investiture of Zimrilim is on hold in the hope that you may be able to provide a better quality photo to go with it. Many thanks again.
Many thanks Marie; will be looking forward to using your new photos. Best. Yazan (talk) 07:46, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
This (the Urkish Lion, ANE-Room C) is also an article I'm working on at the moment, and it seems there are no photos of it commons at all. Would it be possible to get a few photos of the copper statue/tablet on your next trip to the louvre (I understand that it may be difficult considering they might be displayed behind glass). Thanks ever so much. Yazan (talk) 17:06, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
