  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose A valuable portrait of good technical quality of a notable scientist. But I miss the wow, sorry. As a portrait I find it lacks expression, the composition is not interesting, nor the light. There are at least three dust spots, which ought to be removed. The photo would be an excellent candidate for COM:VIC. --Slaunger (talk) 18:25, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The light is quite good, and I like the compositional aspect of the curved road leading to Mont Saint-Michel. However, I think the crop is a little too tight and the image appears a little soft in focus, especially on the buildings closer to the littoral water and at the edges of the photo. The FP bar for this type of photos is just a little larger in my opinion. I had a look at the file page, which was over-categorized. I believe I have fixed that, and also added a few categories of relevance. Still a good photo, but not quite FP for me, sorry. --Slaunger (talk) 18:15, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment There is a large very blurred area, which has to be fixed if possible (see annotation). It would add value to the file page if the photo was geolocated, and if a bilingual editor could also provide an English description on the file page, it would be great too.

    • The tilted horizon caused by the photographer's aircraft banking to the right and the contrail of one F-15 crossing up and over the other's path both make this a very dynamic photograph. You can practically feel the velocity as the nearer pair of aircraft close in on the farther pair. If there's a rule that says horizons must be horizontal, remember that breaking rules can make for much more interesting composition. -- Kbh3rd (talk) 01:46, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

@Wilfredor: My method is very simple-minded, I just mask the background and apply a selective Gaussian blur of modest radius. I usually do not get any posterization from that method. If your raw is posterized, I have no idea how to solve that. (Is it?) --Slaunger (talk) 19:20, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Mixing in a little of the original noise should, in theory, fix all banding issues. I highly doubt that the RAW has banding, because banding doesn't exist if there is noise (which is why a little noise is a good thing and adds information), and a camera producing a RAW without any noise at all would be new to me. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 21:53, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

    • Yes, I sometimes use only three if there is less dynamic range in the scene. The other settings (aperture, ISO etc) are also determined by how close the relevant objects in the scene are (if there is something very close, I need to use f/13 or f/16for maximum DOF, otherwise more like f/8 or f/11 for better sharpness), and how bright the scene is (I try to keep the ISO low, but some very dark interiors need a higher ISO because the upper exposure of a five bracket set would exceed 30 seconds at a low ISO. And also I don't want to wait 30+ seconds per segment! The full panorama will take forever to shoot!). Glad that the metadata is helping you understand the images better.

The harvester is somewhat noisy too. Appears that shadows have been highlighted a lot to bring out some details. --Slaunger (talk) 14:35, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
    • The light curved band in the sky is like a halo over the landscape. I have given the halo some space. The noise on the harvester is ok, the noise is dust from the cloud of the crushed chaff blown across the field. --Michael Gäbler (talk) 19:23, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Leopard anole in cultivar bush
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Created, uploaded and nominated by Slaunger -- Slaunger (talk) 21:45, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The leopard anole (Anolis marmoratus speciosus in this case based on the location) is normally either bright green (male) or brown (female), but it can also change its color with mood and surroundings - a common characterisic of Anoles. This individual I found in a bush, in a village in the southern parts of Grande Terre, Guadeloupe, where I heard noise and found this little well camouflaged individual, which I guess must have been lurking for prey and/or defending its territory. It was difficult to get clean shots of the creature as it was moving fast when I came nearer. This shot is not perfect either as a leaf in the foreground slightly overlaps with the tip of its mouth, but I find it is mitigated by the difficult conditions of the shot. --Slaunger (talk) 21:45, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

The leaf in the foreground is a little distracting and I would consider cloning it out (although the dead leaf perhaps adds a bit to the meaning of it all, I am not sure).

Otherwise very nice. --Slaunger (talk) 21:52, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

To be honest my equipment is suboptimal for aviation photography, and at the event I saw at least 100 aviation photographers with much better equipment. All the time I heard shutter sounds around me and tens of thousands of images were taken. What is a little disheartening is that although so many photos of probably outstanding quality were taken at the event, not many are freely available, and I am - as I write this - the only Commons user to have populated Category:Danish Air Show 2014, although the show had 120,000 visitors.

    Not sure I get it right, but of course it needn't be rude if that's what you meant. I just go straight to the point, so it sounds harsh, but I didn't use any offensive word, and I have nothing against you. Put in another way, it doesn't require any special skill, equipement, or even luck to catch this candidate. When I look at a candidate, if I don't ask myself "How did she/he do that?", "when was this taken?", "How long must have she/he waited?", "what kind of pocessing?", "what kind of rare equipment", "How fortunate she/he could catch this!", "How did she/he have the idea to take it from that point of view", "wow this must have demanded a long preparation"... then it's not FP. Otherwise, we might as well give away high end DSLR to everyone, and promote every pictures taken with them to FP. Again, just my opinion, and again my apologizes if it reads as too harsh. - Benh (talk) 12:25, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
    Benh: I didn't accused you of anything towards my person, no feelings hurt, but just remind that behind each picture there is a photographer who gives his best to the project.
    Regarding this nomination, I can just just say that the picture does amaze me, that is the reason why I actually nominated it. The place all around, the khmer heritage and bas-relieves like this one are featurable to me.
    Yes, it wasn't a complicated execution to manage the picture, but I don't live in Siem Reap and just took a walk to Angkor Thom to take this shot. Rather, I needed 3 flights to get there. Please, don't underestimate that effort in terms of time and investment, at least as long as we don't have a bunch of Cambodian contributors here, what I unfortunately doubt in the near future. Poco2 20:24, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
    Case closed for the personal issues :) Just wanted to make it clear (and I as far as I can tell, you behave very elegantly on Commons, anyways ;) ). For the picture, and criterias to FP in general, it takes me a lot of time and ressources to travel to South East Asia as well, but that doesn't mean every picture I took there is FP worthy. But you're right that feelings can be hurt in such situation, and it's always a struggle to find a balance between telling all the facts, and not hurting people. It's much easier to support than oppose, and I feel I'm the bad guy when I do so (and not to mention I can "make enemies" for my self nominations in the future!). - Benh (talk) 08:15, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Benh, I disagree about the WB. IMO it is not colder than the original, which is oversaturated and thus shows stronger colours in both shadows and lights (at least, I'm not too keen to go +25 sat in Lightroom, which would give me the same colors as seen in the original nomination, because that rarely is faithful to reality) some might like that, though... I can of course upload a higher res version, but two of the frames at the left are blurred quite a bit, unfortunately. --DXR (talk) 11:29, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
  • You may be right. But it still has the cold mood and I don't connect sunsets with cold mood, so I don't agree with you regarding to faithfulness to reality (just because you go +25 on saturation doesn't really mean anything if we don't talk about where we start from). The original was pretty good, with only the banding issue and noise, why altering the author's artistic choices? - Benh (talk) 18:58, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

The subject itself is pretty, but does not score that high on my value bar. --Slaunger (talk) 18:34, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
