  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Norman Saunders - restored, uploaded and nominated by Adam Cuerden -- Adam Cuerden (talk) 10:21, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I'd like to invite everyone to compare this image with the original scan, to see how extensive the restoration was. Also, I should note the scan came out very light for whatever reason: the colours of the restoration are most decidedly more accurate to the actual magazine cover. This restoration took about a week and a half, but I think the results are definitely worth it.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I shouldn't like this. The DoF leaves some parts of the flower to be desired, and it's not even wild ... it's cut. There is, despite the natural tinge of the petal ends, some CA. In fact, it almost looks like a grayscale image that was later hand-tinted.

    But I like it anyway. For what it lacks in technical sophistication, it more than makes up for in artistic appeal. On some level, this just speaks to me ... so plainly and clearly. It does more than speak, actually—it sings. I cannot not hear Satie's Gymnopédie No. 1 (I know, such a cliché) as I ponder this image. It will make a great album cover one day for the right music.

Daniel Case (talk) 16:54, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
FYI Daniel Case, snowmelts like this have become increasingly frequent over the last decade. Having 10 oC+ temperatures in January is not normal in Canada. Otherwise, I agree the subject would be much better illustrated with a but more focus on the tree itself, there is a closeup version on the file's page in case you want to see the beaver's work in details.Tinss (talk) 19:12, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
Nothing in the image, or the filename for that matter, tells us this picture was taken in January ... we have to go to the EXIF for that. Or where it was taken FTM—I could take such a picture in the Catskills, near where I live, where such January melts have historically been more common. If you have to explain this much to get someone to understand why it should be an FP, it's not ever going to be an FP. Daniel Case (talk) 19:25, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I agree that, now having seen the phenomenon with my own adult eyes (I might have seen it when I was younger but not appreciated it fully), that the Thames at low tide is better appreciated in poetry than photography. However, on the whole, yes this is a picture most tourists get—which is why we should have one of as high a quality as we can get. If someone uploads a better one one day and nominates it here, then we can delist and replace. (And what's wrong with a classic tourist pic? I seem to remember we have in the past promoted to FP a tourist standard image of Lower ManhattanFace-smile.svg). Daniel Case (talk) 05:24, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Well, I don't see them as the same at all though... The detail visible in the Lower Manhattan image is much much higher (12000x3000 resolution, and pixel sharp, compared to 5000x3000 and not that sharp at 100%), and taken from a moving ferry (so had to shoot the panorama extremely quickly to avoid parallax errors), which makes it stand out compared to tourist snapshots IMO (although I didn't nominate it or vote on it!). I just don't see anything that stands out about this image though. My point wasn't that touristic views shouldn't be eligible for FP, it was that this image doesn't seem any better than a tourist snapshot, for me. The baseline for FPs (for me, anyway) is that it is an image that stands out amongst contemporary photography in some way (detail, composition, lighting, aesthetics etc). This image just doesn't have any of that IMO. Diliff (talk) 10:34, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Daniel Case, Commons "Delist and replace" isn't like the en:wp one. We don't delist and replace FPs when someone else takes a better one. We only use it when someone has improved the same image (e.g. a better photo of a painting, a reprocessing from raw file). Generally, once an image is FP it stays that way, and we only delist FPs if they are now embarrassingly bad compared to the standard of today. London is a heavily photographed city and we need to compare this to the kinds of photos that appears exceptional. For example, some very high EV with great detail or panorama, or some beautiful lighting due to time of day or weather. Pointing a high-quality DSLR at bits of London isn't enough. It's a useful picture and nice weather but I don't see it being among our finest. We can wait for someone to take a finer one. -- Colin (talk) 10:59, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose One of problems of wanting "too much in one photo" which then destroy composition. In this case, i would leave church out, its not enligthed, would focus just on rigth part of those 2 bldngs. Bottom option doesnt seem good. I was in same doubt not long ago, better skip some part due to better composition, than to try to get all. Would better work if in dayligth, at least would be illuminated. --Mile (talk) 13:39, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
    • I don't really understand why the composition is destroyed though by using an off-centre composition. In this case, it shows the location of the building as it relates to the courtyard and the three dimensionality of it - a sense of its relationship that you don't get from a frontal view. Yes, this results in perspective leans of vertical lines but this is to be expected, and I don't think it is very extreme in this case. I also took this image of the building which is from a slightly different angle and does not include the church spire behind. Do you think this is better? It was taken 4 minutes later but you can see that in that time, the lighting changed a bit and it was darker. I specifically chose to photograph it illuminated at dusk because the building (House of Blackheads) stands out much better than during the day and contrasts nicely against the blue hour sky. Diliff (talk) 15:03, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thats one you mentioned definately works for me, should be first alternative. Actually i like off-centre, i hate all those centering and asking PD fine on 40-50 meters high tower, and especially mentioning PD at angle shot... its nonsense. Some are too much up the rules, and not know when is not so goood to obey them. Leaving that high church out, you get some more natural-looking PD correction. I didnt know it have some name-ambient conotation. Worth to rethink. --Mile (talk) 22:24, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Don't take this wrong, Diliff mastered this type of photos (ok, he cheat using ISO 640 and we both could not do that with our cams :P), maybe he could really help you, how about you ask for some tips here: Commons:Photography critiques? I already did some contributions there. :* -- RTA 10:51, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
    • A minor correction: you could use ISO 640 if you use HDR tone mapping. ;-) It has nothing to do with the model of camera I use, it is everything to do with the way tone mapping selectively uses the well exposed areas of the images. Even at ISO 800 and higher, the brighter parts of the image have low noise levels. But yeah, otherwise I agree with RTA, I'm happy to help out with some tips and I'm sure others are too. If you are making the effort to visit these nice interiors, it only makes sense that you should make the most of it with good technique. Diliff (talk) 10:59, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

@Fauzan: Just because someone has uploaded under CC on Flickr doesn't necessarily mean they had the rights to do so. Do we know for sure that they work for Rover? That the photographer, if a third party, was doing so under conditions that allowed this release? Daniel Case (talk) 18:28, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
@Fauzan: Adding to Daniel, we don't even know if Land Rover MENA have copyright freedom, or if Land Rover UK are the only proprietary, in example of that, the official website, even in countries of MENA, all information remains UK property. -- RTA 20:23, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

That's interesting, Greenwich Naval Hospital has been on my to-do list for some time now, but I live on the western side of London and never get around to heading that far east! ;-) Did you take any regular interior photos of it too?

Why thank you so mcuh for your support ... now I know how all those tween girls on Twitter feel when Justin Bieber retweets them (But not all of them, thankfullyFace-smile.svg).

Actually, yes I do have some other interiors that have made QI and which I am planning to nominate here soon.

As far as a tripod goes ... yes, I agree. I'm new to finally using a DSLR after shooting with just a DP/S for so long (and having had experience with film SLR, I feel like I've come back home). As I've gotten used to it more, a tripod is part of my plan for next year, as I would ruin less shots with it. And thanks for the tip about the aperture ...

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created by Colin - uploaded by Colin - nominated by Colin -- Colin (talk) 14:19, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Ok, the sky is overcast and the hour is neither golden nor blue, but the viewpoint is the platform near the top of the dome on the Methodist Central Hall, This only open to the public for a few hours, one day a year on the Sunday of Open House London weekend. So there isn't much chance to choose one's weather let alone choose the time of day. The unique viewpoint and extraordinary resolution enhance the educational value here beyond a QI to give some wow in my opinion. Specifically:
  • It shows all 96m of Big Ben (Elizabeth Tower) from base to top. Many photos of this side of the tower are cropped or obscured at the base by the trees, fencing or surrounding buildings.
  • The viewpoint is equal in height to the bottom of the clock face, and 400m distant. Therefore, the narrow vertical angle-of-view and perpendicular gaze means that the subject is not distorted, giving a true representation of the proportions and dimensions. Almost all near-view photos are taken at ground level so suffer from vertical perspective issues that can't be fully corrected. Horizontally, the angle is slightly off of face-on, which allows for more than one clock to be visible and to give a sense of depth to the tower -- other high-resolution images of the tower are flat.
  • The New Palace Yard with Jubilee fountain is visible from this angle.
  • The Union Jack is flying next to Big Ben -- can't get more British than that.
  • It is at least twice as detailed as any previous photograph of Big Ben, while also including some of the Palace of Westminster and surrounding area. Overall, this image is 205 megapixels.
I recommend using the Non-flash viewer to examine the image since the Flash viewer zooms to 200% and limits the quality of the JPG it displays. Can you find Shrek? -- Colin (talk) 14:19, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Yes I found Shrek and behind him not very far there are traces of purple CAs, but it's marginal. -- ChristianFerrer 09:26, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Well done! Though the details at 100 per-cent view do visibly suffer from noise reduction, this is not a reason to downscore at the resolution and detail level supplied. Found Shrek. --Kreuzschnabel 09:30, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. Not crazy about the composition but as you say, the viewpoint is pretty limited in terms of when and where you can shoot from and this is a unique angle. Also, were different shutter speeds used? Big Ben seems to get significantly darker around the clockface, which also seems to be in line with the horizon. Or did you apply a gradient filter on the sky? Either way, seems a bit odd and I've never noticed it being darker in any other images of Big Ben. Anyway, it's the extreme detail and unique location that gets this image over the line for me, and for that reason it's very useful. Diliff (talk) 13:07, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the support. The shots were all taken fully manual with same 1/500s shutter. I checked and there's no graduated filter used. A couple of small spot adjustments to remove some fringing and moire. I examined some the individual frames that are half-face half-body and perhaps the face is a little darker but it seems a bit more in the final image (with some global exposure adjustments + modest vibrance + clarity boost). My other shot, File:Palace of Westminster from the dome on Methodist Central Hall.jpg, doesn't show a darker face, though the sun is shining on Big Ben in that photo. The clouds were moving across the sky, possibly altering the scene during the few minutes it took to capture all these frames. That other photo was taken just 11 minutes earlier, with quite different lighting. -- Colin (talk) 20:40, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I have looked at this image a few times and I really find the composition odd. I think it is unfortunate to put the dominating chimney in the middle (but not quite) and have a lot of forest at the left. I think the image would be much better with the chimney at one of the thirds, the building itself centered and framed by the forest on both sides. --DXR (talk) 17:14, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Next to this building there is actually an ox stable (one old photo of mine). That sets some additional limitations on possible suitable compositions. Kruusamägi (talk) 21:02, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Kruusamägi, the size of your image is a bit too small for a nomination here but the composition of your image is far much better. -- ChristianFerrer 13:43, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
  • I agree with Christian. --DXR (talk) 17:04, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
I don't know. My images from 2008 is rather bad by today's standards and not taken it that good light conditions. This photo by A.palu has like super nice colors and I think it's really good depiction of this distillery. Kruusamägi (talk) 21:20, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
Kruusamägi As now you know the place and the light needed for it you can go back there and try again to take this photo with a better light and quality. -- ChristianFerrer 23:03, 20 January 2015 (UTC)The file made by Ivar have a good quality and a good light however the reflection of the chimney is cut (maybe 24 mm is not enough wide) and the little waves on the water don't help for a good reflection. -- ChristianFerrer 23:21, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
