Regarding the perspective, any correction will lead to loss of sharpness. The arc at the right side is vertical, and the plaque is far from a square itself. The translation is added after your comment, I wait for you to enjoy it, it was a common Russian language written in XIX century alphabet, with some letters carved in ancient handwritten style. Thanks for the idea. --PereslavlFoto (talk) 23:22, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Excellent and very interesting, thank you ! Maybe I'll translate in french. I continue to think that a crop would help, anyway it is your choice. I really enjoy to know now the rich history of this church.--Jebulon (talk) 23:42, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Those days young student Vladimir Lenin visited his friends in small manor around Pereslavl. He wanted to see how they print his political article. Seems like they all knew that the police will stay in town securing the cathedral happening... --PereslavlFoto (talk) 23:47, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Is it not perfect yet? Smile --PereslavlFoto (talk) 00:16, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Oh well, I see now. I'd prefer 3×2 crop, will inform you in time. --PereslavlFoto (talk) 18:20, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Difficultés ?[edit]

Bonjour Jebulon,

Quel plaisir de trouver ton message. Après l'avoir lu, j'ai pris mon courage à deux mains et mon clavier des deux autres et je me suis attaquée aux pages d'aide sur la syntaxe. J'ai réalisé que les explications sur Wikipédia étaient plus accessibles et j'ai pu faire d'importants progrès ... Cela m'a redonné confiance. Je n'en suis qu'au début, j'aurai certainement des questions et je te mettrai alors à contribution.

Je suis avec intérêt tout ce bouillonnement d'idées, ces centres d'intérêts aussi divers que variés qui se retrouvent ici. J'aime cet esprit d'entraide et cette générosité que tu représentes si bien. J'ai vu tes récentes photos de Crète, notamment celle-là, qui sont superbes et qui donnent très envie d'y aller.

Bien cordialement.

Responded to you here. Long story short - it's a partially-finished restoration that, while probably fine, I can't quite document up to my minimum Commons standard (dates for everyone, or, at the least, old enough that PD-70 can be proven using oldest person lists. Adam Cuerden (talk) 20:10, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

If you're interested in some of the things I'm not nominating at Commons, en:User:Adam_Cuerden#2015 and below show all my en-wiki FPs. I tend to get about 3-4 a week there when I'm not in one of my down cycles, so Commons will likely never have all of them featured. Of course, a few of them are en-wiki only, some with more reason than others (I'm very, very cautious about Commons files.) Adam Cuerden (talk) 20:12, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Adam Cuerden, sorry for late answer. Very interesting links and files, thanks for let me know. Why are you so cautious about "Commons" files ?--Jebulon (talk) 21:23, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

What you think about?[edit]

Could I beg a favour?[edit]

Crisco 1492 taught nme how to get images from Gallica, but the technique only works up to about 4000px by 6000px. and, to a lesser extent, are a little too big for me to get using that method. Could you help? Adam Cuerden (talk) 19:03, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

@Crisco 1492:@Adam Cuerden:As for me, I know only one method. Open the file at the biggest size possible (maximum zoom), and take as several screenshots as needed, and stitch them together carefuly (sometimes at X1600, pixel over pixel). I work with GIMP. Maybe there is another or easier way to do, but I don't know (or don't understand) the process). Mine is difficult and needs to be careful and patient, but it is sure. And full-size guaranteed!--Jebulon (talk) 19:38, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
Hmm. Well, I guess I can handle that. Just been having trouble using the scroll. Adam Cuerden (talk) 19:45, 16 July 2015 (UTC)


Le pinault nouveau est arrivé! Pressé à la main, mais promu quand même... --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 13:13, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Merci pour lui, et son photographe.--Jebulon (talk) 13:18, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

FPs of Greece[edit]

Hey! More FPs of Greece! Suggestion: You could take pictures of Hellenic Parliament too. 😄 ArionEstar 😜 (talk) 07:48, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm no more in Greece, but in Italy now, between Pompeii and Herculaneum. But I've not finished the upload of my last pics from Greece. As for the "Vouli", see in QI yesterday.--Jebulon (talk) 08:05, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

By the way...[edit]

You have mail. Adam Cuerden (talk) 10:05, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Eva Joly[edit]

Salut, Je ne comprends pas que tu t'opposes aux deux nominations. Cordialement, Yann (talk) 13:48, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Salut, parce qu'on n'est pas obligé de choisir l'une au détriment de l'autre, et que je trouve qu'aucune des deux, pour des raisons différentes certes, ne remplit tous les critères d'une "Image de Valeur" tels que prévus par la règle. Cordialement, --Jebulon (talk) 21:00, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Category for images[edit]

Hi Jebulon. I see you take a lot of images with A550. A small hint for you: There's a category for images taken with this camera: Category:Taken with Sony DSLR-A550. Feel free to use it at will. :) SkywalkerPL (talk) 17:25, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi SkywalkerPL, yes I have taken almost all of my pics with this camera, and I continue. I knew this cat, but I think it is a bit late ! Maybe there is an automatic way to add this category to my files, if not, I'm not sure I'll do it manually... But please feel free to do so. Thanks for message anyway !--Jebulon (talk) 17:40, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your kind words about the video.[edit]

in fact, it is the first one, we are still discussing, how we will finally do it, because we have another 250 from this project in the queue. Because of my former profession, my tendency goes to a complete work (intro/outro/credits) but I am aware of the shortness of the main subject. The very first idea was, just presenting this video sequences without any additional informations. Maybe I should do both.

The freezing is due to a mistake of mine, because we worked one day with FullHD, but only 25 fps. I hope, the takes from day 2 on are better with 1920x1080 and 50fps.

But your suggestion gives me the idea of additionally use of some still-pictures from the front and the back. I will try. But in fact, we now have all these pictures from this eight days work (about 15.000 single shots for focus stacking) and it will cost me more than half a year to finish all this raw material. Besides two classes I have to give at the University of Vienna and Wikiversity the next semester with apprx. 60 students.

But it was more than worth to realize this project, the chance to handle all of these objects directly with this incredible haptic feeling, not somehow behind some glass vitrines. It was a great thing for all of us. With a perfect team of six peoples from Austria, Switzerland, Germany and Italy, all of them - exept me - without any experiences with studio works. Now they are all able to do this independently, at least the photographic works, not the postprocessing. The next project - actually, I hope not this year - is waiting for us. Minerals.

The main goal was, to make a GLAM-project with small collections, not with big institutions. And do teach Wikipedians, how to organize a project by themselves, or beeing a technical advisor for some days for those groups, who are interesting in doing something similar. And too, an important point is, that the chapters from Austria and Germany can borrow the technical things to whomever, who will do something like this. --Hubertl 22:17, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
