FPCandiateicon.svg

گزید نگاره برگزیده are images that the community will vote on, to determine whether or not they will be highlighted as some of the finest on Commons. This page lists the candidates to become featured pictures. The picture of the day images are selected from featured pictures.

Old candidates for Featured pictures are listed here. There are also chronological lists of featured pictures: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and current month.

For another overview of our finest pictures, take a look at our annual picture of the year election.

Formal thingsEdit

NominatingEdit

Guidelines for nominatorsEdit

<translate> Please read the [[<tvar]] before nominating.

This is a summary of what to look for when submitting and reviewing FP candidates:

  • Licensing – Images licensed with solely "GFDL" or "GFDL and an NC-only license" are not acceptable due the restrictions placed on re-use by these licenses.

</translate> <translate>

  • ResolutionImages (with the exception of animations and SVGs) of lower resolution than 2 million pixels (pixels, not bytes) are typically rejected unless there are strong mitigating reasons.

</translate> <translate>

Graphics on Commons are not only viewed on conventional computer screens. They may be used in high-resolution print versions, and the images may be cropped to focus on portions of the image. See [[<tvar]] for more information.

</translate> <translate>

  • Scans – While not official policy, [[<tvar]] provides advice on the preparation of various types of images that may be useful.

</translate> <translate>

  • General quality – pictures being nominated should be of high technical quality.

</translate> <translate>

  • Digital manipulations must not deceive the viewer. Digital manipulation for the purpose of correcting flaws in an image is generally acceptable, provided it is limited, well-done, and not intended to deceive.

</translate> <translate>

    • For photographs, typical acceptable manipulations include cropping, perspective correction, sharpening/blurring, and colour/exposure correction. More extensive manipulations, such as removal of distracting background elements, should be clearly described in the image text, by means of the {{Retouched picture}} template. Undescribed or mis-described manipulations which cause the main subject to be misrepresented are never acceptable. For images made from more than one photo, you can use the {{Panorama}} or {{Focus stacked image}} templates.

</translate> <translate>

    • For historic images, acceptable manipulations might include digitally fixing rips, removal of stains, cleanup of dirt, and, for mass-produced artworks such as engravings, removal of flaws inherent to the particular reproduction, such as over-inking. Careful colour adjustments may be used to bring out the original work from the signs of ageing, though care should be taken to restore a natural appearance. The original artistic intent should be considered when deciding whether it is appropriate to make a change. Edits to historic material should be documented in detail within the file description, and an unedited version should be uploaded and cross linked for comparison.
  • Valueour main goal is to feature most valuable pictures from all others. Pictures should be in some way special, so please be aware that:

</translate> <translate>

    • almost all sunsets are aesthetically pleasing, and most such pictures are not in essence different from others,

</translate> <translate>

    • night-shots are pretty but normally more details can be shown on pictures taken at daytime,

</translate> <translate>

    • beautiful does not always mean valuable.
Artworks, illustrations, and historical documentsEdit

There are many different types of non-photographic media, including engravings, watercolours, paintings, etchings, and various others. Hence, it is difficult to set hard-and-fast guidelines. However, generally speaking, works can be divided into three types: Those that can be scanned, those that must be photographed, and those specifically created to illustrate a subject.

Works that must be photographed include most paintings, sculptures, works too delicate or too unique to allow them to be put on a scanner, and so on. For these, the requirements for photography, below, may be mostly followed; however, it should be noted that photographs which cut off part of the original painting are generally not considered featurable.

Works that may be scanned include most works created by processes that allow for mass distribution − for instance, illustrations published with novels. For these, it is generally accepted that a certain amount of extra manipulation is permissible to remove flaws inherent to one copy of the work, since the particular copy – of which hundreds, or even thousands of copies also exist – is not so important as the work itself.

Works created to serve a purpose include diagrams, scientific illustrations, and demonstrations of contemporary artistic styles. For these, the main requirement is that they serve their purpose well.

Provided the reproduction is of high quality, an artwork generally only needs one of the following four things to be featurable:

  • Notable in its own right: Works by major artists, or works that are otherwise notable, such as the subjects of a controversy.

</translate> <translate>

  • Of high artistic merit: Works which, while not particularly well known, are nonetheless wonderful examples of their particular type or school of art.

</translate> <translate>

  • Of high historic merit: The historical method values very early illustrations of scenes and events over later ones. Hence, a work of poor quality depicting a contemporaneous historical event can be nonetheless important, even if the artistic merit is relatively low. Likewise, scans or photographs of important documents – which may not be at all artistic – nonetheless may be highly valuable if the documents are historically significant. The reason for the image's historical importance should be briefly stated in the nomination, for those reviewers unfamiliar with the subject.

</translate> <translate>

  • Of high illustrative merit: Works that illustrate or help explain notable subjects, for instance, illustrations of books, scientific subjects, or technical processes. The amount of artistic merit required for these will vary by subject, but, for instance, an illustration that makes the working of a complicated piece of machinery very clear need not be notable as a piece of artwork as well, whereas an illustration for a book might well be expected to reach much higher artistic standards.

Digital restorations must also be well documented. An unedited version of the image should be uploaded locally, when possible, and cross-linked from the file hosting page. Edit notes should be specified in detail, such as "Rotated and cropped. Dirt, scratches, and stains removed. Histogram adjusted and colors balanced."

PhotographsEdit

On the technical side, we have focus, exposure, composition, movement control and depth of field.

  • Focus – every important object in the picture should normally be sharp.

</translate> <translate>

  • Exposure refers to the shutter diaphragm combination that renders an image with a tonal curve that ideally is able to represent in acceptable detail shadows and highlights within the image. This is called latitude. Images can be on the low side of the tonal curve (low range), the middle (middle range) or high side (upper range). Digital cameras (or images) have a narrower latitude than film. Lack of shadow detail is not necessarily a negative characteristic. In fact, it can be part of the desired effect. Burned highlights in large areas are a distracting element.

</translate> <translate>

  • Composition refers to the arrangement of the elements within the image. The "Rule of thirds" is one useful guideline. Horizons should almost never be placed in the middle, where they "cut" the image in half. Often, a horizon creating a top or bottom third of the space works better. The main idea is to use space to create a dynamic image.

</translate> <translate>

    • Foreground and background – foreground and background objects may be distracting. You should check that something in front of the subject doesn't hide important elements and that something in background doesn't spoil the composition (for example that the streetlight doesn't "stand" on someone's head).

</translate> <translate>

  • Movement control refers to the manner in which motion is represented in the image. Motion can be frozen or blurred. Neither one is better than the other. It is the intention of representation. Movement is relative within the objects of the image. For example, photographing a race car that appears frozen in relation to the background does not give us a sense of speed or motion, so technique dictates to represent the car in a frozen manner but with a blurred background, thus creating the sense of motion, this is called "panning". On the other hand, representing a basketball player in a high jump frozen in relation to everything else, due to the "unnatural" nature of the pose would be a good photograph.

</translate> <translate>

  • Depth of field (DOF) refers to the area in focus in front of and beyond main subject. Depth of field is chosen according to the specific needs of every picture. Large or small DOF can either way add or subtract to the quality of the image. Low depth of field can be used to bring attention to the main subject, separating it from the general environment. High depth of field can be used to emphasize space. Short focal length lenses (wide angles) yield large DOF, and vice versa, long focal lenses (telephotos) have shallow DOF. Small apertures yield large DOF and conversely, large apertures yield shallow DOF.

On the graphic elements we have shape, volume, colour, texture, perspective, balance, proportion, noise, etc.

  • Shape refers to the contour of the main subjects.

</translate> <translate>

  • Volume refers to the three dimensional quality of the object. This is accomplished using side light. Contrary to general belief, front lighting is not the best light. It tends to flatten subject. Best light of day is early morning or late afternoon.

</translate> <translate>

  • Colour is important. Over saturated colours are not good.

</translate> <translate>

  • Texture refers to the quality of the surface of the subject. It is enhanced by side lighting… it is the "feel" to the touch.

</translate> <translate>

  • Perspective refers to the "angle" accompanied by lines that disappear into a vanishing point that may or may not be inside the image.

</translate> <translate>

  • Balance refers to the arrangement of subjects within the image that can either give equal weight or appear to be heavier on one side.

</translate> <translate>

  • Proportion refers to the relation of size of objects in picture. Generally, we tend to represent small objects small in relation to others, but a good technique is to represent small objects large contrary to natural size relationship. For example, a small flower is given preponderance over a large mountain…. This is called inversion of scales.
Not all elements must be present. Some photographs can be judged on individual characteristics, that is, an image can be about color or texture, or colour AND texture, etc.

</translate> <translate>

  • Noise refers to unwanted corruption of colour brightness and quality and can be caused by underexposure. It is not a desirable quality and can be grounds for opposition.

</translate> <translate>

  • Symbolic meaning or relevance … Opinion wars can begin here … A bad picture of a very difficult subject is a better picture than a good picture of an ordinary subject. A good picture of a difficult subject is an extraordinary photograph.

</translate> <translate>

Images can be culturally biased by the photographer and/or the observer. The meaning of the image should be judged according to the cultural context of the image, not by the cultural context of the observer. An image "speaks" to people, and it has the capacity to evoke emotion such as tenderness, rage, rejection, happiness, sadness, etc. Good photographs are not limited to evoking pleasant sensations …

You will maximise the chances of your nominations succeeding if you read the [[<tvar]] before nominating.

Video and audioEdit

Please nominate sounds at Commons:Featured sound candidates.
Please see [[<tvar]] for video guidelines.

Set nominationsEdit

If a group of images are thematically connected in a direct and obvious way, they can be nominated together as a set. A set should fall under one of the following types:

  • Faithful digital reproductions of works notable in their own right, which the original author clearly intended to be viewed as a set. Examples: pages in a pamphlet, crops (puzzle pieces) of a prohibitively large scan, a pair of pendant paintings. Not acceptable: Arbitrary selection of sample works by an artist.

</translate> <translate>

  • A sequence of images showing the passage of time. They could depict frames of a moving/changing object or a static object during different times of day or different seasons. Examples: diagrams illustrating a process, steps of a dance, metamorphosis of an insect, maps/drawings/photos of the same subject over the years (frame of view should be more or less the same).

</translate> <translate>

  • A group of images depicting the same subject from different viewpoints, preferably taken under the same lighting conditions when possible. Examples: Exterior and interior of a building, different facades of a building, different interior views, obverse and inverse of a banknote/coin. Not acceptable: A selection of different rooms in a skyscraper, the facade of a church plus an organ, any images of fundamentally different scopes.

</translate> <translate>

  • A group of images which show all possible variations of a particular class of object. Examples: Male and female versions of an animal (preferably in the same setting), all known species of a genus. Not acceptable: A few breeds of cats (unless they share a defining characteristic and represent all possible examples of that).

</translate>

Adding a new nominationEdit

If you believe that you have found or created an image that could be considered valuable, with appropriate image description and licensing, then do the following.

Step 1: copy the image name into this box, after the text already present in the box, for example, Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Your image filename.jpg. Then click on the "create new nomination" button.

All single files:

For renominations, simply add /2 after the filename. For example, Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Foo.jpg/2


Step 2: follow the instructions on the page that you are taken to, and save that page.

Step 3: manually insert a link to the created page at the top of Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list: Click here, and add the following line to the TOP of the nominations list:

{{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Your image filename.jpg}}

Recommended: Please add a category from the list at COM:FP.

Optional: if you are not the creator of the image, please notify him/her using {{subst:FPC-notice|Your image filename.jpg}} -- ~~~~.

VotingEdit

Editors whose accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. Everybody can vote for his/her own nominations. Anonymous (IP) votes are not allowed.

You may use following templates:

  • {{Support}} (Symbol support vote.svg Support),
  • {{Oppose}} (Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose),
  • {{Neutral}} (Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral),
  • {{Comment}} (Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment),
  • {{Info}} (Pictogram voting info.svg Info),
  • {{Question}} (Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question),
  • {{Request}} (Pictogram voting question-blue.svg Request).

You may indicate that the image has no chance of success with the template {{FPX|reason - ~~~~}}, where reason explains why the image is clearly unacceptable as a FP. The template can only be used when there are no support votes other than the one from the nominator.

A well-written review helps participants (photographers, nominators and reviewers) improve their skills by providing insight into the strengths and weaknesses of a picture. Explain your reasoning, especially when opposing a candidate (which has been carefully selected by the author/nominator). English is the most widely understood language on Commons, but any language may be used in your review. A helpful review will often reference one or more of the criteria listed above.

Unhelpful reasons for opposing include:

  • No reason
  • "I don't like it" and other empty assessments
  • "You can do better" and other criticisms of the author/nominator rather than the image

Remember also to put your signature (~~~~).

Featured picture delisting candidatesEdit

Over time, featured picture standards change. It may be decided that for some pictures which were formerly "good enough", this is no longer the case. This is for listing an image which you believe no longer deserves to be a featured picture. For these, vote:

Text to use Displays as Meaning
{{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep It deserves to remain a featured picture
{{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist It does not deserve to be a featured picture anymore.

This can also be used for cases in which a previous version of an image was promoted to FP, but a newer version of the image has been made and is believed to be superior to the old version, e.g. a newly edited version of a photo or a new scan of a historical image. In particular, it is not intended for replacing older photos of a particular subject with newer photos of the same subject, or in any other case where the current FP and the proposed replacement are essentially different images. For these nominations, vote:

Text to use Displays as Meaning
{{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep Do not replace the old image with the new image as an FP.
{{Delistandreplace}} Symbol redirect vote.svg Delist and replace Replace the current FP with the proposed replacement.

If you believe that some picture no longer meets the criteria for FP, you can nominate it for delisting, copying the image name into this box, after the text already present in the box:


In the new delisting nomination page just created you should include:

  • Information on the origin of the image (creator, uploader);
  • A link to the original FP nomination (it will appear under "Links" on the image description page);
  • Your reasons for nominating the image and your username.

After that, you have to manually insert a link to the created page at the top of Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list.

As a courtesy, leave an informative note on the talk page(s) of the original creator, uploader(s), and nominator with a link to the delisting candidate. {{subst:FPC-notice-removal}} can be used for this purpose.

Featured picture candidate policyEdit

General rulesEdit

  1. The voting period is 9 complete days counted from the nomination. After the end of this period the result will be determined. Votes added on day 10 and after are not counted.
  2. Nominations by anonymous contributors are welcome
  3. Contributions to discussion by anonymous contributors are welcome
  4. Only registered contributors whose Commons accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. Exception: registered users can always vote in their own nominations no matter the account age and number of edits.
  5. Nominations do not count as votes. Support must be explicitly stated.
  6. Nominators and authors can withdraw their nominated pictures at any time. This is done by adding the following template: {{Withdraw}} ~~~~. Also, remember that if more than one version is nominated, you should explicitly state which version you are withdrawing.
  7. Remember, the goal of the Wikimedia Commons project is to provide a central repository for free images to be used by all Wikimedia projects, including possible future projects. This is not simply a repository for Wikipedia images, so images should not be judged here on their suitability for that project.
  8. Rules of the 5th day based on vote counts on day number 5 (day of nomination + 5)
    1. Pictures are speedy declined if they have no support (apart from the nominator).
    2. Pictures are speedy promoted if they have 10 support votes or more and no oppose votes. (Note that if it takes more than five days to reach this threshold, the picture can be promoted as soon as it is reached.)
    3. Once either speedy criterion is reached, the voting period is considered closed, and no more votes may be added.
  9. Pictures tagged {{FPX}} may be removed from the list 24 hours after the tag was applied, provided there are no support votes other than that of the nominator.
  10. Pictures tagged {{FPD}} (FP-Denied) may be removed from the list 24 hours after the tag was applied.
  11. Only two active nominations by the same user (that is, nominations under review and not yet closed) are allowed. The main purpose of this measure is to contribute to a better average quality of nominations, by driving nominators/creators to choose carefully the pictures presented to the forum.

Featuring and delisting rulesEdit

A candidate will become a featured picture in compliance with following conditions:

  1. Appropriate license (of course)
  2. At least seven Symbol support vote.svg Support votes (or 7 Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist votes for a delist) at the end of nine days
  3. Ratio of supporting/opposing votes at least 2/1 (a two-thirds majority); same for delist/keep votes
  4. Two different versions of the same picture cannot both be featured, but only the one with higher level of support, as determined by the closer. Whenever the closer is not sure which version has consensus to be featured, he/she should attempt to contact the voters to clarify their opinions if not clear from the nomination page.

The delisting rules are the same as those for FPs, with voting taking place over the same time period. The rule of the 5th day is applied to delisting candidates that have received no votes to delist, other than that of the proposer, by day 5. There is also a limit of two active delisting nominations per user, which is in addition to the limit of two active regular nominations.

The FPCBot handles the vote counting and closing in most cases, current exceptions are candidates containing multiple versions of the image as well as FPXed and withdrawn nominations. Any experienced user may close the requests not handled by the bot. For instructions on how to close nominations, see Commons:Featured picture candidates/What to do after voting is finished. Also note that there is a manual review stage between the bot has counted the votes and before they are finally closed by the bot, this manual review can be done by any user that is familiar with the voting rules.

Above all, be politeEdit

Please don't forget that the image you are judging is somebody's work. Avoid using phrases like "it looks terrible" and "I hate it". If you must oppose, please do so with consideration. Also remember that your command of English might not be the same as someone else's. Choose your words with care.

Happy judging… and remember... all rules can be broken.

Table of contentsEdit

List may contain works considered Not Safe for Work (nudity).

Nominators are requested, out of courtesy, to include the {{Nsfw}} template with such images. Users may select the gadget in user preferences "Deferred display of images tagged with {{Nsfw}} on COM:FPC" to enable the template's effect of hiding the image until selected.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Cmao20 – you did your best, but technically, it looks oversharpened, oversaturated and over-contrasty. As for the shot itself, I don’t see much outstanding here.

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Note - just after I started this nom I made a couple of corrections, including nudging the white balance towards the cooler side as I felt it was a little warm before. This is now accurate to how it looked on the day. Anyone who viewed the nom right after I made it might need to clear their cache to view the new version. Cmao20 (talk) 23:13, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Congratulations, Cmao20, for submitting your own work (as it seems to be the first FPC "all by you" if I'm not wrong). Well, in my view this tower is clearly a QI, and the light is good. However I'm a bit mitigated on the wow factor (that's subjective of course) as I don't see here a tremendous composition, nor an incredibly original subject. I'm not sure whether or not this one will become FP (I'd bet for no), but I'm personally convinced it is not an obvious one. Other opinions may differ of course. You'll see... good luck! -- Basile Morin (talk) 03:49, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Thanks Basile. Yes, this is the first time I have submitted my own work at FPC, I will upload a few more of my images over the next few weeks although I'm not sure if I'll try them at FPC or at QIC. Your opinion is always appreciated, even if you don't support. Cmao20 (talk) 12:39, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • If you're not sure about QIC, be informed that a promotion there is much much easier than here -- Basile Morin (talk) 00:39, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Hi Cmao, I'm with Basile basically. There's nothing wrong. It's properly taken and I guess it would pass QI assessment. But here is about "special" pictures, and I don't think that one is. Do you think it's a very special point of view? subject? Were the conditions special? If yes, then you did well to nominate. But to me it doesn't check any of these. And at an age when anyone can basically produce high quality picture, your picture has to stand out on other merits to get the stars here (well I guess, I'm not all the voters). Benh (talk) 15:03, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Well, in response I'd say I nominated it because I felt that the perspective conveyed the height and immensity of the tower, and I felt that the light conditions were good that day. It also shows several important features of castle architecture from that time, included the arrowslits and the places where rooms would once have been constructed, and it shows the colour of the decorative yellow sandstone more clearly than any other image on Commons. But maybe these latter few are arguments for why it should be featured on ENwiki, not here. Thanks for your review anyway, it's always appreciated. Cmao20 (talk) 15:16, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • I agree with you. Your reason would probably be better received at enFPC. And yes here is also a lot of personal point of view, which can get really frustrating from time to time (when you think you took the shot of your life and no one seems to agree). - Benh (talk) 15:31, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi Charles. The hill's slopes, which can be seen on the sides, meet in the middle. The lines just go on straight outside the frame so they meet where you think they do (middle). Framing everything in would mean large dark areas in the picture and I personally don't like it. That's also a reason why I cropped out much of the sides. - Benh (talk) 19:01, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, while I think that the subject surely has FP potential, I don't think that this image was executed to FP standards. 1) Arrangement: the two dishes at the left and center bottom look like they're being pushed out of the frame by their covers. That's even more severe for the red one with the peppers, as it extends outside the rectangle made up by the mat. The covers build a visual barrier between the dishes at the top and the ones at the bottom. I think I would have preferred to have all the dished in the center and the covers arranges around them. 2) Despite the colorful tableware, the whole picture over-all looks unexpectedly pale and grey. Maybe raise the exposure a bit and process for a little bit more "pop". I don't know what the background is made of, but I've git a feeling that is should be much brighter. There seem to be a bunch of shadows at the sides that make it rather ugly-looking. --El Grafo (talk) 07:40, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

  • I can totally relate to the way things feel special when you are down in a canyon with the light filtering down for only a short while, but also how hard it is to capture that in a photo.

I am happy to overlook downsizing when the image is >20MP or if there is a good reason why the shot was technically challenging or we are stuck with whatever some external photographer uploaded to Flickr and the shot is outstanding. But not a 30>12MP downsize from a Commons regular. Happy to remove the oppose if full resolution uploaded. -- Colin (talk) 09:08, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Colin, aren't you a bit extreme here? Although I more or less agree with you, this puts quite a pressure on a user IMO (and it's not like that user overwhelms us with his entire Lr catalog). Nothing obliges Basile to upload full size, and 12mpix of that quality seems very reasonable to me. At least, why not express your opinion through a neutral? Just my two cents. - Benh (talk) 21:00, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Benh, back in March, Basile was very adamant in opposing a cormorant photo downsized from 50 to 20MP. The Commons:Image guidelines for FP do ask photographers not to downsize. Most reviewers allow some downsizing for reasons I gave, but may oppose otherwise. The issue has been discussed many times, without being able to come up with a rule we can all agree on. Anyway, I only get one vote so others are quite capable of supporting this if they wish. -- Colin (talk) 09:33, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
  • To be precise Colin, the downsize was from 26,6 to 20 MP. From 50 to 26,6 was a crop as the bird was pretty far as my longest tele is "only" 600m (or rather 300m x 2). Cropping for such a reason is, I believe, acceptable for wildlife shots. Furthermore I was on a boat (in movement) in the Chobe river and not standing in front of a building.

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This monument is one of the most, if not the most important of Thailand. Type "main sites Thailand" or "main sites Bangkok" on Google, then you get results like this one or that one showing the Grand Palace in first positions. There was no decent picture on Wikipedia of this building before I upload the file. Check the Category:Wat Phra Kaew. The photograph was shot @11 mm focal length FF, so that I could get the whole buildings after perspective correction (and obviously slight size reduction, which is completely normal in architecture photography). This is not downsized. As said above, it's very difficult to find a good image of this temple on Google without tourist. Then I think the high educational value, with the relative rarity, and the correct light, should make it -- Basile Morin (talk) 10:30, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Perspective correction often decreases resolution quite unavoidably, as in the case of this FP. Basile has never, as far as I know, been known for downsizing his images, and so we should take him at his word. Cmao20 (talk) 14:15, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
    • Cmao20 I appreciate that a strong vertical perspective correction in Lightroom will reduce resolution slightly. Some adjustment to the Y Offset often helps avoid having to reduce the scale too much to restore the height with the frame. I tried some fairly extreme "corrections" in lightroom and could not get anywhere close to 60% reduction. I suggest Basile experiments with the Y Offset and should then find that the perspective correction should have minimal impact on resolution. An 11mm lens on full frame is already an extreme ultra-wide, so if one is having to make strong corrections to that, then really we aren't seeing realistic proportions any longer. The state-of-the-art wrt architecture photos on Commons is a stitched photograph with resolution significantly in excess of what the camera produces -- we have loads of such high resolution images. -- Colin (talk) 14:38, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
      • Colin, I mean, yes, such high-resolution stitched images (such as this by you) are truly wonderful, but they don't come around very often at FPC, the vast majority of images of buildings here are single frame. I didn't know we had, as you say, loads of these images, and if we do it'd be nice to see a lot more round at FPC! But for me I don't think we should apply such a high bar to architectural photographs, as a sharp 12.5 megapixel image like this one is really good enough for almost any purposes; it's easily big enough to illustrate the building for any obvious purpose I can think of. Basile's image is not perfect - there's a bit of distortion at the edges, probably because of the perspective correction - but looking at other images of the buildings on the internet, the proportions don't look totally out-of-joint to me, so it's still an accurate depiction of the building. Cmao20 (talk) 14:49, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Thanks, Cmao20, for the comment and accurate research. Yes, this case is exactly the same than Podzemnik's before and after perspective correction + crop. This is not downsized -- Basile Morin (talk) 10:30, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
  • See User:Colin/PixelPeeping. Yes 12MP is ok for many purposes. It is just a very little short of what is needed for a Nat Geo spread at 300dpi and shorter still than needed for a Vogue spread. One of the ideas I explored in that essay was the difference between a "bold subject" and a "detailed subject". Some images are a bit of both. I want to see the detail of the tiles on this temple, but there isn't the resolution. -- Colin (talk) 15:28, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Present, it might have more than made up for the light. Daniel Case (talk) 02:58, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
  • @Daniel Case: what do you mean by "downsizing"? I remember I fixed for you the perspectives of your building File:Pratt_Street_skyline_from_Convention_Center,_Baltimore,_MD.jpg nominated in QIC because the operation was too difficult from your side. And now you're still confused with these architectural transformations, and seem ignore how they affect an image. I've said it already two times, but I'll explain one more for you. Also feel free to request my original files, they will make my words even more explicit. This picture is taken with the ultra widest angle rectilinear lens existing in the world. It means the distance is very short in front of these stairs in reality. There's a wall behind my tripod. With a standard focal length, you'd see only the temple and not the two towers. So, you really can't see much larger than this, the camera set upwards as it was. I did a small crop, but if I had used the top of the top professional Canon EOS-1D X Mark II (20.2 Mpx), be sure that the image would have appeared even smaller, without that crop. Why do you see less pixels? Because the image is not UPSIZED (I did not cheat), and because the original file has been transformed (perspectives corrected). It is sharp now, and it makes 4'156 x 3'014 px = 12,5 Mpx, more than 4K, and large enough compared to many other similar pictures in the same category. Now please try to give a link of a better image from the same angle, with a higher definition, if you find on the web. Good luck. Maybe possible in theory, but not in practice. Why is it not a stitched panorama? Due to the number of visitors in this place, technically it is almost impossible. Stitched panos are easy under favorable conditions, like fixed light and empty places. Visit that temple, and you'll understand. You want to see more details? Yeah me too, when I look at the Moon with normal eyes I expect to see the craters, the texture, and every single dust on the surface, this is my dream Face-grin.svg -- Basile Morin (talk) 05:39, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Extreme downsizing, and this in a picture from a user who pixelpeeks this issue in other noms with much moderate downsizing under tricky conditions (26,6 > 20 MP of wildlife shot from a moving boat). I seldom agree with Colin, but I definitely do here. Poco2 09:47, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Dobar.svg "Extreme" downsizing, now. Wow! There's only one image uploaded, then I hardly see how it could be downsized from no previous version, lol. This is downsized, yes (check the history), and this too, and this one also. My opinion is you can crop as much as you want at home. Everybody do that. Because when you shoot camera upwards, you never see exactly what you'll get after perspective correction, then you necessarily need more space around as security. But the guidelines say "Images should not be downsampled (sized down) in order to appear of better quality" (understood after upload of course). I just follow the guidelines. And disagree with you. No problem -- Basile Morin (talk) 10:36, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Basile, you have no problem selecting wow-y subjects and you have shown that you are very good at using advanced post-processing techniques such as stacking and animating. Have you ever considered using panorama technique? It would have been ideal for a place like this where you can't get far from the subject and you would normally need some special lens to get it all in frame. Pano technique is not just for mountain tops, it works very well in confined spaces or when you are standing in front of a too large subject. The functions for doing it are in the editing programs you already have. In this photo, I had water behind me and could not back enough to get all of the subject in frame and with this large flat petroglyph, I would have needed a drone or crane to get high enough from the cliff. Panos sorted things out. This indoors photo is an extreme example of how much you can do by stitching photos together while being close to the subject. You write that you took several photos of this building to be able to clone out the tourists, while you were doing that, you could have made something like six photos of this scene from your tripod and merged them into one fantastic (and large) image. You should give it a try, I think it would add to your photos to have yet another "tool" to make great photos. This image is not bad, you just have not used the best available technique to capture it. --Cart (talk) 11:24, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Totally agree with Cart that stitching can also be used to get rid of people (and to increase resolution). But also agree that this picture is maybe getting little unfair treatment. - Benh (talk) 14:50, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Thanks, Benh. Sometimes I make stitched panoramas (using Photoshop or Hugin), but it's rare. The first reason is because they very often generate errors, boring to correct (recent example nominated here), by yourself or by others. The second reason is because they generate huge files, boring to manipulate (too long, too slow on a machine, even with enough RAM). The third reason is because these details are rarely useful in 90% of their applications. You really need to print a poster to look at all these, and in practice we almost never print posters. Here I remember I spent a very long time with my tripod waiting that some visitors move in various places. In my originals, I have for example a guy sitting on the stairs, waiting for his girlfriend takes a picture of him. Also a group of Chinese people discussing. Well, you can't tell these visitors "hey, guys, please go out! I'm waiting for you to leave now, my picture is more important please" :-) Thus, if I had to handle that work also for every small part used in a stitched panorama, the time it would have taken would have been impossibly excessive. Probably the light from the sun would have changed from a corner to another one, or maybe a guard would have come to me because one hour at the same place in the middle of a crowd is unacceptable behavior. The problem is that people here seem not to catch the challenge (except you Benh, and perhaps Cmao20 and The Cosmonaut). Of course if all the reviewers in FPC are only familiar with the empty churches and cathedrals, they might not understand what is a popular and ultra crowded site like this temple, gathering a lot of Chinese groups, and other visitors from all countries. Just read the Lonely planet: Wat Phra Kaew is "today Bangkok’s biggest tourist attraction and a pilgrimage destination for devout Buddhists and nationalists". In the light of the guidelines A bad picture of a very difficult subject is better than a good picture of an ordinary subject. I don't think it's so bad, and I'm sure it's difficult -- Basile Morin (talk) 15:35, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • I second Cart's suggestion. Per User:Colin/PixelPeeping this is an image where we would love to see the detail on the temple. We don't need to print out a poster to see that, we can all use the zoom viewer or download full size and explore on our screens. The stitching errors you mention are because you need a panoramic tripod head to get the best results. But even before I had one of those, I could take indoor panoramas with hundreds of people moving about the frame: this and this and this and this were taken hand-held leaning on the handrail, with cheap lens and entry-level DSLR. People like to explore the detail in these photos and they go wow, which is FPC requirement. And the Albert Hall photo Cart links has such resolution and sharpness you can see tiny details in the distance and yet was taken with a £75 plastic 50mm lens. -- Colin (talk) 20:08, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • So many pictures with people that are not cloned out. Different goal, different approach, different technique. When I started photography, that was not even with a DSLR but with a compact camera I didn't even pay (borrowed). Big joy. I also made FPs like this one with cheap lens and cheap body. Possible. Equipment is not all of course and you can possess a Ferrari without being a Formula 1 race champion. Or ride 75 km on a mountain bike instead of a race bike. Perhaps better for your muscles. But plastic lenses break easily and take water. I've also got the cheap EFS 10-18 and the sharpness is far far inferior, incredible comparison. But it also depends on what kind of pictures you make. If you don't care the people, then opt for more pixels. But if you like to see a desert site focusing on the building only, then my technique is better -- Basile Morin (talk) 00:31, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question Also Basile, I do a lot of perspective corrections myself and I'm not quite sure how this gets you from 30mp to 12. I do get the borders would be stretch to lots of extent, but the center should still retain its details. - Benh (talk) 15:20, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Well, the building and the towers are not at the same distance, then unless you focus stack, it seems normal to me to get a very slight difference of sharpness due to the depth of field -- Basile Morin (talk) 15:35, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

This is the license I started using 11 years ago, and I haven't thought much about changing it. Is there a disadvantage to still be using it now? --The Cosmonaut (talk) 14:09, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Well, the CC system evolved over the years. Its latest versions are much clearer and more easily applicable in different jurisdictions, see here --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 05:43, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
It looks like 2.5 is still the latest CC version for Canada. I should look at the international one, I suppose. The Cosmonaut (talk) 23:10, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Closing a featured picture promotion requestEdit

The botEdit

Note that the description below is for manual closure, this is mostly not needed anymore as there exists a bot (FPCBot) that counts the votes and handles the process below. However after the bot has counted the votes a manual review step is used to make sure the count is correct before the bot again picks up the work.

Manual procedureEdit

Any experienced user may close requests.

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    Add the result of the voting at the bottom (on a new line with a space first)
    {{FPC-results-reviewed|support=x|oppose=x|neutral=x|featured=("yes" or "no")|category=xxx (leave blank if "featured=no")|sig=~~~~}}
    (for example see Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:The Bridge (August 2013).jpg). See also {{FPC-results-reviewed}}.
  2. Also edit the title of the candidate image template and add after the image tag
    featured or not featured
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] ===
    becomes
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], featured ===
  3. Save your edit.
  4. If it is featured:
    • Add the picture to the list of the four most recently featured pictures of an appropriate category of Commons:Featured pictures, list as the first one and delete the last one, so that the number is four again.
    • Also add the picture to an appropriate subpage of Commons:Featured pictures, list. Click on the most appropriate link beneath where you just added it as one of the four images.
    • Add the template {{Assessments|featured=1}} to the image description page.
      • If it was an alternative image, use the subpage/com-nom parameter: For example, if File:Foo.jpg was promoted at Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Bar.jpg, use {{Assessments|featured=1|com-nom=Bar.jpg}}
      • If the image is already featured on another wikipedia, just add featured=1 to the Assessments template. For instance {{Assessments|enwiki=1}} becomes {{Assessments|enwiki=1|featured=1}}
      • Add the picture to the chronological list of featured pictures. Put it in the gallery using this format: File:xxxxx.jpg|# - '''Headline'''<br>created by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]], uploaded by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]], nominated by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]]
      • The # should be replaced by 1 for the first image nominated that month, and counts up after that. Have a look at the other noms on that page for examples.
      • You may simplify this if multiple things were done by the same user. E.g.: File:xxxxx.jpg|# - '''Headline'''<br>created, uploaded, and nominated by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]]
    • Add == FP promotion ==
      {{FPpromotion|File:XXXXX.jpg}} to the Talk Page of the nominator.
  5. As the last step (whether the image is featured or not; including {{FPX}}ed, {{FPD}}ed and withdrawn nominations), open Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list, click on [edit], and find the transclusion of the nomination you've just finished closing. It will be of the form:
    {{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:XXXXX.jpg}}
    Copy it to the bottom of Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/September 2019), save that page, and remove it from the candidate list.

Closing a delisting requestEdit

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    Add the result of the voting at the bottom (on a new line with a space first)
    '''Result:''' x delist, x keep, x neutral => /not/ delisted. ~~~~
    (for example see Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal/Image:Astrolabe-Persian-18C.jpg)
  2. Also edit the title of the delisting candidate image template and add after the image tag
    delisted or not delisted
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] === becomes === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], delisted ===
  3. Move the actual template from Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list to the bottom of the actual month page on Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/September 2019.
  4. If the outcome was not delisted, stop here. If it is delisted:
    1. Remove the picture from Commons:Featured pictures, list and any subpages.
    2. Replace the template {{Featured picture}} on the image description page by {{Delisted picture}}. If using the {{Assessments}} template, change featured=1 to featured=2 (do not change anything related to its status in other featured picture processes). Also, remove the image from all categories like Featured pictures of ....
    3. Add a delisting-comment to the original entry in chronological list of featured pictures in bold-face, e. g. delisted 2007-07-19 (1-6) with (1-6) meaning 1 keep and 6 delist votes (change as appropriate). The picture in the gallery is not removed.
  5. If this is a Delist and Replace, the delisting and promotion must both be done manually. To do the promotion, follow the steps in the above section. Note that the assessment tag on the file page and the promotion tag on the nominator's talk page won't pick up the /replace subpage that these nominations use.

Archiving a withdrawn nominationEdit

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    In the occasion that the FPCbot will not mark withdrawn nominations with a "to be reviewed" template and put them in Category:Featured picture candidates awaiting closure review just like if they were on the usual list, put the following "no" template:
    {{FPC-results-reviewed|support=X|oppose=X|neutral=X|featured=no|category=|sig=--~~~~}}
  2. Also edit the title of the candidate image template and add after the image tag
    not featured
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] ===
    becomes
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], not featured ===
  3. Save your edit.
  4. Open Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list, click on [edit], and find the transclusion of the nomination. It will be of the form:
    {{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:XXXXX.jpg}}
    Copy it to the bottom of Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/September 2019), save that page, and remove it from the candidate list.
