  • Thanks for this very unexpected Christmas gift and Merry Christmas to you too Martin! Face-smile.svg Those jackets photos were only test shots I did to figure out how to make a cool image involving the jacket. I wanted to see how that light and post-processing worked on the leather. I uploaded then since I didn't want them to "go to waste", but I never intended them for FPC. I'm sorry, but my heart is just not in the FP game now. If I get hold of a "real" camera, stop doing experimental photos and have a sex change, I might once again fit in with "the rest of the guys" some day. Just kidding. In the meanwhile I'll just go through the thousands of average nice photos I took as I documented much of the Lysekil peninsula this summer and upload selected ones. The only good thing about the 2018 drought, was that every day was a photo day. Be well and all my best wishes to you and your family. --Cart (talk) 11:00, 25 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Please do whatever feels right for you, Cart! But if you ever consider paying us a visit over at FPC, please don't hesitate - there's a couple of "us guys" who will be truly missing your experimental perspective. And yes, I do understand that FPC can be annoying at times. All the best to you and yours as well! :-) --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 17:31, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

Coordinates[edit]

I've been thinking, does coordinates matter for Quality images? Adamdaley 10:31, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

@Adamdaley: Coordinates are not a must for QIs, but they are appreciated and in some cases they can help the overall assessment. Like if you take a photo of a rare plant in the middle of nowhere, it is useful to biologists to know the exact position of the habitat, but if you photograph the Tower Bridge in London, it is easy to figure out where the photo is taken so coordinates are less important. If you photograph an iPhone, coordinates are almost useless since it is just a photo of a common object. --Cart (talk) 10:45, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
For example headstones of graves in a cemetery in my area which is the largest. Adamdaley 10:49, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

@Adamdaley: For that coordinates are not necessary for QI if you give the name of the cemetery, town/city, state, country. Some cemeteries have plot and section numbers that can be useful. But keep in mind that we don't post photos here just to make them QI, VI or FP, they are for the free Wiki-project and coordinates can be very useful to researchers and projects. I add coordinates to almost all my photos simply because we do not know how they may be used and what info might be relevant. --Cart (talk) 11:44, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
