Hello Luca, I really enjoy your great shots. Marvellous work! --Überraschungsbilder 00:24, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Thank You Überraschungsbilder, I'm a totally beginner on Commons and this is my first massive upload. Tomorrow I'll try to fix some problems (Names too long?) and I'm going to insert my uploaded pictures in galleries. I hope I'm doing someting usefull. --LucaG 01:17, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, the long file names should be no problem – much better than things like DSC_76256.JPG, of course ;-) And personally, I like good, desciptive names. Hm, you're using the Commonist for uploads? If yes, good choice!
Little tip: You could have a look at Category:User galleries for different options how to organise your photos in user galleries. Some people use a general category directly on upload, others sort their pictures manually … (note: the categories named "Files by User:… on ….wikipedia" were mostly created by a bot. There's no regulation for the naming of such categories). You can just add your gallery page to the other user galleries.
If you need any help here on Commons, don't hesitate to ask me. Even if Commons seem to be a bit messy at first glance, we're quite well organised in some ways. So you will always find someone who can point you to another experienced user or to a place with more info :-) Greetings --Überraschungsbilder 20:15, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Hey, and have a look at Commons:Featured picture candidates *g* --Überraschungsbilder 21:58, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Oh! Thank you so much Überraschungsbilder. It's an exciting thing to be judged by experts on this crowded stage! --LucaG 22:48, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi again :-) I saw your question on Lyacon's page, and just for the case you didn't find out already: You can easily upload another, corrected version of every image, so that it replaces the former one – as you did on Image:IMG_0839_Yarlong_Tsangpo.jpg. So just go e.g. to Image:Piles_of_Salt_Salar_de_Uyuni_Bolivia_Luca_Galuzzi_2006.jpg, scroll down and watch out for the "Upload a new version of this file" link below the "File history" section. And click "ignore warnings" on upload. Good luck :-) --Überraschungsbilder 00:03, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Yes I know how to replace an image but I thought it wasn't the right thing to do while the image is under evaluation as a FP candidate. Now that Trialsanderrors fixed the tilt I think that the right way is to upload a second version of the picture to add in Commons:Featured picture candidates page. Is it right? --LucaG 18:24, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Hey Luca, yes, if it is a minor fix you can just upload it over the original, or if it is a major fix add a second picture to the nomination. But I had another question: Does the Piles of salt picture show salt refinery? I would like to nominate it at the English Wikipedia too, but for that it needs more context. ~ trialsanderrors 02:32, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi Trialsanderrors. No, Piles of salt picture doesn't show refinery. It shows the first step when farmers heap up salt from the salar crust into conical piles and leave it dry in the sun before transport to a refinery.
Here you can have an idea of dimensions of the piles: Image:SALT Salar de Uyuni Bolivia Luca Galuzzi 2006.jpg
Salt refinery is done with fire and then they add iodine. Everything is family operated and done by hand. --LucaG 17:00, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll create a nomination (hopefully today) and will let you look over it before I post it. Take care and thanks for posting the picture, trialsanderrors 19:47, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

I created a nomination at w:Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Salt mounds, Salar de Uyuni. Feel free to correct the caption if it contains inaccuracies. Otherwise I will post it tomorrow. ~ trialsanderrors 06:13, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

The caption is very accurate. I'm thrilled about this amazing competition, Thank you Trialsanderrors. --LucaG 07:30, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
OK, it's posted. Featured pictures on English Wikipedia is very different from Commons, so let's see how it will do. I hope for the best, trialsanderrors 00:01, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Edit...

No offence taken, but how do I not "use your name"? I mean, the license that you chose (cc-by-sa) requires me to state the original author (you). And also, what's wrong with just... keeping it there? Is it really that bad and will cause everyone harm if it doesn't get deleted? --wj32 talk | contribs 23:58, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Hi Lucag,

I haven't had the opportunity to tell you before, but congrats (x100) a lot for your stunning pictures ! It's really hard for me to believe the pic with your girl standing on the salar is real, but I really have no reason not to trust you. I'll change my vote to neutral and let other users judge.
