Thanks!Edit

Hi Iifar, thanks a lot for your comment on File:Sonoma Coast, near Gleason Beach.jpg (quality image candidates). I actually didn't notice that the horizon was tilted that much. It's one of my favorite places along the Sonoma coast and I really enjoyed taking that picture. So, thank you so much again, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 16:27, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

File:Rochers Sierra Nevada.jpgEdit

Hello Iifar,
I thank you very much for your numerous and lenient reviews of my pictures.
You made a very interesting comment on this one, and you were right.
Would you please be kind enough to have another look ? I've reworked it, and I hope you will find it fine now (I'm trying Lightroom4 as postprocessing software, very interesting but a bit difficult at beginning !)
If it does not work for you, no problem for me, feel free to decline, of course.
BtW, congratulations for your own pictures in general, they make your country very interesting to me, but... they are already promoted when I review !!
Regards from Paris, --Jebulon (talk) 22:09, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

I just wanted to thank you for your reviews, however, I'm pretty much of a commons newbie and I simply can't fix some stuff, so I just withdrew one more nomination. Anyway, every review helps me in general. Thanks a lot! -Barras (talk) 14:33, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry for going contrary to the policy of featured photos nominations. I'll reduce the number i've submitted to 2. In fact, I don't know of that though. But i think ignorance isn't an excuse.

File:El Escorial facade Espagne edit.jpg in QICEdit

Hello my dear (and watchful) friend from Estonia !
Don't you like the spanish sun ? :)
By magnifying at 400%, I've understood where you saw color banding.
I've tried to reduce this by less contrast in the sky, it is not perfect.
I've made some corrections around the vane in foreground, but I don't see what I could do for the vane in background, I've corrected a bit all around the roof.
I hope it is better but now, there is nothing more I could do in order to improve again this picture, I'm sorry. So it will stay as it is.
Anyway, I thank you very much for your useful reviews, even if it made me work very hard !!
Kind regards from Paris, friendly, --Jebulon (talk) 23:44, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

I just wanted to say I like your macro pics very much. They're beautiful and they hold a high encyclopaedic value. Go on with the good job!

On a different matter, if you live anywhere near Tallinn and are not adverse to sports photography, there's a famous fencing event taking place in the city, the Glaive de Tallinn. All top-ranking epee fencers attend the event, including of course Estonian fencers who as you may know rank amongst the best in the world. The 2013 event is over now, but please consider covering it in 2014!

Mõned küsimused spetsialistileEdit

  • Millistel teadusfoto võistlusele laekunud piltidel võiks olla potentsiaali saada eeskujuliku pildi märge?
  • Kas sealse Pavese seeria müürlooga trihhoomidest võiks esitada seeriana FP kandidaatideks? Kas neid pilte saab käsitleda kui "Featured pictures of Estonia"?
  • Millised HELP4 pildikogumisele laekunud fotod on sinu hinnangul parimad? St millised oleksid võimalikud eeskujulikud pildid?
  • Mul oleks tarvilik valida 3 parimat HELP4 pildilisajat. Kes tegid sinu hinnangul parimat tööd?

Thank you for yours advices of last time. I edited this file a little more in my taste because it has of the potential and is very beautiful. I've cropped it (the barn at right is maybe a bit disturbinhg and I'm a fan of 16:10 format), and I've sharpened it and add some clarity.

File:SuruBog.jpgEdit

Täissuuruses näeb tõesti palju parem välja. Aitäh abi eest. Kuigi täissuuruses pildi vaatamine tundub minu jaoks pisut jabur, ekraani suuruses vaadates ei ole muutus märgatav ja tõenäoliselt see pilt ekraani suuruseks ka jääbki. Eesmärk on ju koguda pilte wikipedia jaoks ehk siis need leiavad kasutust veebis. Tõenäoliselt pole vahet ka A4 suuruses väljatrükis, suuremaid väljatrükke ma pole teinud. Kas tohin küsida, mida sa täpselt tegid? Saan aru et sharpening aga mis määral? Ma nüüd ise proovisin ka Lightroomis Amount=102 Radius=0.8 Detail=23 ja Masking=57. Sai vist isegi tervavam kui sinu töötlus aga võibolla juba liiga palju.

Thanks, I see now. This is not about noise reduction. This is because I used the Mir-21A wide-angle lens, and this lens was produced in USSR about 1980, so it was prepared with non-digital level of quality. There was some wind also Smile. The EXIF data was taken from the adapter ring and has nothing in common with the lens. And now I see the problem and will check if anything can be done.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Hotel IberostarEdit

Hello Iifar! Thanks for your hint on File:Hotel Iberostar Málaga Playa Torrox Costa 2014.jpg on QIC regarding the verticals at the right. I've created a completely new stitching - perspective should be better now. I've also tried an FPC nom - I am excited about the result. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:03, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Presqu'île du Rouens, Clermont-l'Hérault 02.jpgEdit

Hi, I'm happy if you like it, and in the future for pictures with framing (rocks, trees....) I will remember your comment and I will try to not put too much of rocks in foreground. Unfortunately, for this one the composition is done and I'm not a fan of cropping and re-cropping to keep the peace of the image whitch is acceptable. It's my choice of composition and I assume it. However I'm always happy to hear your point of view and I shall try to take into account it for my future compositions :) -- Christian Ferrer Talk 17:46, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 startet in KürzeEdit

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg

Hallo Iifar,

in Kürze ist es wieder soweit. Der nun schon traditionelle Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments wird im September zum vierten Mal stattfinden. In ähnlicher Form hatte unlängst der Wettbewerb "Wiki Loves Earth" eine erfolgreiche Premiere. Zu allen bisherigen vier Wettbewerben haben seit 2011 gut 3000 unterschiedliche Teilnehmer (User) ihren Beitrag geleistet. Du warst dabei, und bist auch herzlich eingeladen, am bevorstehenden WLM-Wettbewerb wieder dabei zu sein.

Allein in Deutschland wurden in den letzten drei Jahren im Rahmen von WLM rund 100.000 Fotos zu den insgesamt ca. 850.000 Kulturdenkmalen bundesweit hochgeladen. Jährlich haben sich mehrere Hundert Wiki-Fotographen daran beteiligt. Auch im kommenden Denkmalmonat wird dies gewiss wieder der Fall sein. Der Tag des offenen Denkmals am 14. September bietet bundesweit vielfältige Möglichkeiten, Denkmale nicht nur von außen, sondern auch von innen zu fotografieren. Denkmallisten sind dabei ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt und zugleich auch Ziel der Einbindung der Fotos. Auch in diesem Jahr sind wieder neue Denkmallisten hinzugekommen, die hilfreich bei der Planung von individuellen oder Gruppen-Fototouren sind und auf eine Bebilderung warten, wie z.B. zu Görlitz oder Zittau. Unter den Landeshauptstädten fehlt nur noch Stuttgart. Aber auch hier ist Licht in Sicht.

In der Mitte Deutschlands hat die Denkmallandschaft der thüringischen Landeshauptstadt Erfurt nun das Licht der Wikipedia-Welt entdeckt. Mehr als 50 Tabellen enthalten 3.700 Denkmale. Allein die wunderschön restaurierte Altstadt umfasst 1.800 Denkmale. Eine von WMDE geförderte WLM-Fototour nach Erfurt am Wochenende vom 29. – 31. August lädt herzlich ein, diese einzigartige Kulturlandschaft zu dokumentieren. Mehr Informationen findest Du auf der Projektseite.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß beim größten Fotowettbewerb der Wiki(m/p)edia wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 16. August 2014)

Hi Ivar, I'm a bit curious, I was looking at your uploads when I saw this image. I found it nice and by looking more carrefully I saw that the first upload was at 4 500 × 6 750 px, you use a Nikon D5200 whicht make images with a maximum resolution of 6,000 × 4,000. Thus I don't understand, can you light me please? :) -- Christian Ferrer Talk 18:06, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the answer, the last time I was a bit sad that you withdraw, before I bring my support. It's a nice and well done image. Good evening. :) -- Christian Ferrer Talk 18:29, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Ivar, after to have read your question for the size of the sky. I want to precise that the rules of 1/3 of sky is not compulsory, there is also the "Gold Number" and others.... To be precise I opened your file in Lightroom, there is a tool to change the cropping grid. With the Gold Number, not only you have not too much sky but at the opposite you have not enough of it. The image will be more balancing with...a bit of more sky, not a lot but... a bit more. :) -- Christian Ferrer Talk 20:29, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

In despite of the size, certainly a downsampling, some of these files have maybe a FP potential. -- Christian Ferrer Talk 17:01, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
