Thank youEdit

Thanks for the discrete and nice work you have been doing in linking our FP to their nomination pages! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 12:02, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! Nice to know it's appreciated, :) Only a few hundred more to go... Julia\talk 12:08, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Recently I struggled, with no success, with the redirect of a commons nomination to an alternative version. I can't remember the picture but maybe you can give me some general advice. One of the problems was to find the right initials for Commons in the Assessments template: "comwiki-nom=" ? -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 12:35, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • It is com-nom=example.jpg. However, this only works if "File:" is not included in the parameter. If you happen to be trying to link to a nomination page titled Image:example.jpg, it simply won't work (or at least, I've not got it to work yet!). Julia\talk 12:47, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Dear Julia, I am currently doing the layout of a Schoolbook for french in Austria and would like to use your picture from a metro sign there. Your name would be mentionned as the author of course.

Hi Julia o/,

First of all, thank you for writing, you are very kind lovely. So yeah, I've been working lately on getting good pictures, I have visited forests days away from civilization and I've been in altitudes over 5000 meters above the sea level. Taking pictures is one of my passions, throw like paragliding and climbing, I hope to travel to the remotest parts of the Amazon soon. For me, it is a great pleasure, a user like you, with so much level contributions and receive this compliment.

I hope you can apply for a scholarship for the next Wikimania and so I share ideas with you. --Wilfredor (talk) 19:35, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Welcome backEdit

Welcome back, Julie!

After all, I realize that you have been around for some time! But I haven't noticed, maybe because you changed your username. Now for this bee shot. I'm afraid it doesn't have a chance at FPC, hélas! The main problem is the overall unsharpness, mainly due to the shallow dof. A different issue is the harsh sun lighting, causing all those ugly reflections and affecting the detail. Lighting is indeed the most difficult problem in macro, especially when our subjects and alive and nervous! One way around is to shoot the beasts in early morning (a terrible sin for me), use long exposure and, even better, focus brackteing. But that is for experts like Richard! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 15:23, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

It was very windy that day, which affected all of my attempts - obviously including this one! I thought the specular highlights might also be a problem - African sun is terrible for it. Thank you very much for sharing your opinion, and for the welcome! I appreciate it.  :) Abraços, Julia\talk 15:34, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Doleschallia bisaltide bisaltide (Autumn Leaf) - male, January 2013, Singapore.jpgEdit

Hi Julia, do you noticed that this file is still in a dispute at [1] and [2]; so it may be better editing it later. JKadavoor Jee 14:34, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I had no idea that discussion was on-going about this image. Thanks for letting me know about it. I don't feel that it was incorrect to make the edit though. It's been protected so I can't remove my edit now. Julia\talk 21:12, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
It's OK; my only intention was to inform that matter. JKadavoor Jee 14:35, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Photo of Cape honey beeEdit

Hi Julia. I am writing a book on beekeeping in Australia and am including a chapter on bees that are found outside of Australia. I plan to include an entry on the Cape Honey Bee and would like to use your excellent photograph in my book. Can you let me know if you are OK with this. I will of course fully attribute the photograph to yourself.

Thanks in advance

Robert robert at owen.org.au Melbourne

Re: your image of the false turkey tail, File:False turkey-tail - Golden curtain crust - Stereum ostrea - 02.jpgEdit

Hi Norbert! On the English Wikipedia we recently promoted one of your images and it is now a featured picture. Here's the pic: File:False turkey-tail - Golden curtain crust - Stereum ostrea - 02.jpg and here's the nomination Featured picture candidates/Stereum ostrea. Sasata is regarded as something of a fungi expert and he disagrees with the identification of this as Stereum ostrea. He thinks it is S. hirsutum because it grows in Europe and looks almost identical, while S. ostrea does not grow in Europe. What do you think about changing the identification of this image to S. hirsutum? Julia\talk 20:06, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Julia, I'm not really a fungi expert, so if your expert says,the photo shows S. hirsutum, please feel free to change the file description and file name accordingly. Sorry for the wrong assignment. BR Norbert -- Norbert Nagel (talk) 21:14, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
