  •   Support - I agree that this change produced a marked improvement. I wish the caterpillar were a bit sharper still, but I think it's quite sharp and detailed enough to be both fascinating and of great educational/encyclopedic value. As others have said, it's amazing to look at, and the composition is pretty good, too.

  •   Neutral It is a beautiful scene, but I think the level of detail should have been a bit better here for an FP. This is not your fault, it's just us being very picky here. I also think you should nominate these for Quality Image and one of them for Valued image. We would also appreciate if you could provide the coordinates for the camera location on the files so that they can be displayed on OpenStreetMap and Google Earth.

  •   Comment well, given the miniscule size of the camera's sensor (4mm diagonal), the f-stop as such is more than adequate. The lack of sharpness (at least when compared to more advanced photographic systems) is due to the sensor itself. This being said, the picture's still good enough imo --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 06:47, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
  •   Support INeverCry 18:55, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

As it is it looks like a rather sad example of this guerilla art form. For an FP on the subject I'd like something more substantial like this or this.

It is rather noisy, there are practically no details at all on the sea, the sunset in itself is not extraordinary enough for an FP, the color especially around the islands is so posterized and saturated that at full size it almost looks like those psychedelic posters I had in my room during the 1960s, ok fond memories but not FP, sorry. --w.carter-Talk 21:48, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

However, I close here because probably become a boring speech which you are used to but I do not.--LivioAndronico (talk) 20:08, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • @Code: I would think Livio is participating here because he feels his photos deserve FP status. He's been right about this 96 times, so he's doing pretty well. If he doesn't want to change his images according to suggestions, so what? That's his business. Your comment about collecting awards is offensive. 96 FPs means 96 images of Livio's that were judged to be impressive enough for FP status. He earned those 96 FPs through his skill and talent as a photographer, he wasn't awarded anything. INeverCry 21:08, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
Dear INeverCry, a good photographer not make you automatically an polite person. This place is not an street photo exhibition where opinions do not matter, it's a community based on participating which is the base too of FP section. Definitely, reviews are essential and for IMHO is the only way to improve the quality professional of this section. Code's comment refers to the fact that Livio ignored my comment followed by an immaturity act. --The Photographer (talk) 22:26, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
@INeverCry: Come on, seriously? My comment was offensive? Don't you think it's offensive to ignore other users comments or attempts to help and to tell them that one doesn't care of their opinion? If he doesn't care for other users' opinions why is he presenting his pictures here? At FPC, everything is about the opinions of the community. We're not only allowed to talk if Livio wants us to. Although Livio's behaviour is always very rude some users (including myself) try to help him improve his pictures again and again and all we get in return are statements like the ones cited above. You're defending that by pointing out that he's got 96 FP stars? Really? BTW: I don't expect him to change his pictures upon my request. But I expect him to at least answer other users' comments. It's a simple issue of politness. --Code (talk) 05:24, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Instead of laughing about Livio's bad jokes you should advise him to be polite to others. It would be nice if someone else could have a look at this thread, maybe @Christian Ferrer:, @Natuur12: or @A.Savin: for example.

And this is a anatomic model, colours are painted by the human, it's not oversaturated, it's the colour of the model, and could be any colour actually, it's a educational model... And it was not "destructive" was we do not have any lost of information. Next time, ponder your words, or at least bring truths... Btw, your cuts are not clear, and the reason is simple, you changed the background colour, but do not took into consideration the invasion that black creates, now we have harsh white knurled lines, and you also do not removed the invasion of magenta provoked by the model itself. Remembering that it's only my opinion. -- Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 17:25, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
PS:I strongly suggest you bright down your monitor, the grey it's not even close to be black, and we do not have areas overexposed in the orginal image.

Hi Rodrigo, please don't take it personally, how you can see, destrutive is a word very used here. --The Photographer (talk) 05:17, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
The Photographer 23 results, we can not classify as very used, we have more presence of the word "shit" [3], and this do not mean that is good way to classify the work of someone, and more, using adjectives in an evaluation it is not appropriate and unproductive.

This isn't just a diagram; it's a model. It loses a lot of value if parts of the model are removed. Besides the pole, the various screws and latches were also removed. But not the base.

  •   Oppose I like the nood of the picture, but the following aspects lead me to not support the candidature: De-noising artifacts in the lower part of the picture in particular, yet quite a lot of noise is still visible in the sky. Stars on the right side create trails - exposure time was too long vs. the "600/f" rule. An airplane flew through the picture, see note. --Hendric Stattmann (talk) 13:35, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
  •   Oppose - I'm not sure what to think about this picture. It looks pretty good at full-page size, but at full size, why is the sky sharp on the left side and blurry, with traily stars, on the right side? Different photos stitched together? And the land looks a bit strange at full size, though I could tolerate that and perhaps it couldn't be helped. I'm not sure the contrail makes the photo unfeaturable, but I think that overall, the photo, while good, isn't one of the most outstanding on the site. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:22, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

I think planetarium buildings are interessting in their shape and therefore not common or ordinary. The building is centered, like 95% of all building images are, also FP-building-images. The light is strong, the sky is blue, no rubbish, just a good and concise shot. If I compare this image to all other images this photo persuades with it's simplicity. --Wladyslaw (talk) 20:50, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  •   weak support I find myself wondering if the image would be more pleasing if you'd moved a little to the left to take advantage of the symmetry? Regardless, this is an interesting building and a high quality photograph. -- Thennicke (talk) 01:44, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per INC. Daniel Case (talk) 02:40, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per INC. Adding a bit for the benefit of Alchemist-hp: Some buildings are interesting enough to look good in a straight forward centered photo, this is not one of them. This building needs more shadow/light interaction to make it "come alive" and be interesting enough for an FP. Since the main part of it is almost the same hue as the clear sky it doesn't stand out that much. Imagine if there had been some linear cirrus clouds behind it, that would have been effectful. Or perhaps reshoot it in autumn and get the yellow leaves to complement the blue roof. It is a very good QI/VI but it lacks the wow of an FP. w.carter-Talk 03:14, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
  •   Oppose - I have no problem with the positioning of the planetarium, but with no clouds or significant chromatic variation in the sky, it just sits there and detracts from an otherwise very good photo that could have been featurable in my opinion. I'd like to see a similar photo with interesting clouds and/or during sunrise or sunset. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:55, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

What do you mean by this ?--Jebulon (talk) 07:48, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
          • I guess he means that the voting behaviour is more than the tase of a photocommunity and disregards the encyplopedic value of an image. Indeed we already have a forum for valued images but nevertheless we shouldn't forget that this image pool is primarily for the encyploedia and not other purposes. --Wladyslaw (talk) 07:56, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
            • I had the same point of view when I came here but have since learned that FPs need to be both encyclopedic and visually stunning, with an ephasis on 'stunning'. Perhaps we should have a new project for pictures that are simply fantastic from an encyclopedic point of view, Perfect Pictures or something. ;) I'm only joking, but the thought has crossed my mind, I know I could contribute with plenty to that. For now those pics goes into the QI section. --w.carter-Talk 11:41, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
              • I use thumbnails of Commons photos on Wikivoyage, a travel guide, not Wikipedia. Moreover, each Wikipedia has the power to select a picture that's of great encyclopedic value but insufficiently good quality or composition to be a Featured Picture on their site. I think most of us do take educational and encyclopedic value into account in our voting, but for many of us, neither of those are our primary criteria, but rather, criteria that can make the difference between support and oppose votes in more or less close cases or in the cases of extremely unusual subjects, sometimes it may override a lot of reasons for opposition. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:35, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

  •   Info Book created by the Master of the Petrarch Triumphs - found, uploaded, restored and nominated by me -- Jebulon (talk) 15:25, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
  •   Support Something different today, from the french national online library. Here we have a (restored by me) manuscript illumination featuring the coats of arms of dowager queen Catherine de'Medici, widow of king Henry II of France. This was included ca.1560CE in a ca.1500 CE illuminated prayer book manuscript called Petites Heures d'Anne de Bretagne. One can see that they are CoA of a widow due to the Ordre de la Cordelière around the escutcheon. This chivalric order was created after the death of her husband king Louis XII of France by queen Anne of Brittany, for widow noble women. You have at left (dextre in french heraldry) the CoA of kings of France, and at right (senestre, yes, it is inversed) the CoA of Catherine, showing her descent (Boulogne, Medici, Tour d'Auvergne). During her life, she was Queen Consort, and a very powerful Queen Mother of the three last kings ( brothers Francis II of France, Charles IX of France and Henry III of France) of the House of Valois of the Capetian dynasty. Her death marks the end of the french Renaissance. The original version of this image is available as first upload for comparison, as I usually do.-- Jebulon (talk) 15:25, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

      • No matter, just a joke: as you opposed with the same words two completely different pictures, I thought you were angry, maybe due to the fact that someone had stollen a part of your breakfast, or something. Please don't care, that's a french kind of reaction.--Jebulon (talk) 19:39, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

  •   Support As far as I can see, this is an excellent rendition of an old illumination. Most likely made on handmade paper (no straight sides, vellum usually have cut sides) in an age when rulers and set-squares were optional. Colors are consistent with those of the era and so is the gilding. Granted, it's been some years since I studied such manuscripts at the British Museum, but from what I recall this seems ok. Nice to see something unusual like this here. :) w.carter-Talk 18:27, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

The trees of Category:Featured pictures by country and similar, are only for Commons FP, because "FP's" on many wikipedia languages are not necessarily what we consider as the finest of Commons, making these categories rather trivial when sorted into. Thanks --A.Savin 18:39, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Why should the image tilt or why should the terrain be irregular? I don't understand what you will say or criticize. -- Spurzem (talk) 17:52, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
I added a note. Maybe I'm wrong but the horizon could be inclined --The Photographer (talk) 18:03, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
  •   Comment I was actually thinking something similar, not with the horizon since this is rather close to the Alps and there are plenty of rolling hills there, but all the poles of the fence behind the car are leaning slightly to the right. A minor fix if so. Great car! I think I'm in love. cart-Talk 18:24, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Please look now. -- Spurzem (talk) 18:48, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Well done tilt is better now!, however, a white corner border was generated, you could cut it --The Photographer (talk) 18:59, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
  Done -- Spurzem (talk) 19:16, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
  •   Oppose - Nice car, but in this instance, I will oppose because the blurry grasses in the background and especially the foreground are too distracting to me. There's also an obvious stitching error in the lower left corner. That error should be fixed, but when it is, I still won't support a feature for the other reason. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:21, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
  •   I withdraw my nomination Incredible! I withdraw. -- Spurzem (talk) 19:24, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Negative votes founded like Ikan Kekek because help improve the quality of your photos. Some votes/opinions may be wrong, however, if you are not prepared to accept a critique perhaps this is not a good section. --The Photographer (talk) 19:28, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
I accept entitled criticism but not chicane. -- Spurzem (talk) 19:31, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
And you also are engaging in a conversation on my user talk page to complain about my vote. I'm one person. You don't have to "accept" (agree with) my criticism, and you probably withdrew your nomination prematurely. But if you want more people to support your work, getting all indignant whenever they oppose it isn't a good strategy. No-one should let anyone's attitude about opposition to their work affect their voting decisions, and I certainly don't plan to do so, but as we are all human beings doing something for fun that we're not getting paid for, if you are so unpleasant whenever people oppose your work, don't be surprised if your support votes start to dry up at some point. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:33, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Dear Spurzem A similar situation happend a time ago with user @Livioandronico2013: blocked by his criticism or comments and I'm sure this is not your case, however, it is always good to be grateful especially with the negative comments with a good base. Words have no emotion and perhaps sometimes can be misunderstood, I apologize if I made a comment that could have been misinterpreted --The Photographer (talk) 19:28, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

  •   Support Thanks for explaining. Great subject anyway. 😄 ArionEstar 😜 (talk) 22:34, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for answer and sorry for my delay --The Photographer (talk) 03:49, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
  •   Comment Also looking at how the house looks at Google street view, it seems like the picture has been retouched, wires and graffiti gone and also the roof(!). While I understand that some of this is necessary I'd like such things to be pointed out in the file description of an FPC. If the house has been significantly renovated since the Google photo, I sincerely apologize for this comment. cart-Talk 06:41, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Dear W. Carter, thanks for your question. I have always added the geolocation as far as possible in my photos to yourself to observe reality and google street map image have a one month apart and many things can happen in one month as a house remodeling, for example, however, it's not the case, I made alterations in this photo, which I considered not alter the main subject (mural and window), the changes were to remove distracting elements of the main subject, including cables, isolated roof, graffiti on the wall, an unknown dirt and black sign. I sincerely apologize my idea is not to show false images, however, I understand that some changes may not be acceptable. --The Photographer (talk) 17:37, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Thank you or that full explanation. I never thought you intended to be deceiving especially since you always provide a geo tag. It was simply a matter of form for an FPC that changes should be recorded so that every voter can form their own opinion about how to view the image. From a photographic point of view I can very well understand all the changes that were necessary to create a beautiful picture, the encyclopedic standpoint is somewhat different for me. I don't mind if corrected things are movable objects like cars, window displays, garbage, dust, birds, etc or things that could have been avoided if the angle was slightly different, as long as they are not the main object in a picture and only a small percentage of that. So the cables, graffiti and dirt are ok, but to change a gable of a house, that is not what I'd like to see in an FP. I also think the roof gable framed the artwork rather nicely, explaining why it has a triangular shape. Others may think differently and regard only the artwork and the windows. Sorry, but for my part I'll have to   Oppose this. --cart-Talk 18:12, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

  •   Weak oppose I like the pose too, and the detail is great. But that may be its undoing. It looks like, in the pursuit of that excellence, the image might have been oversharpened (look at that bit of the white truck in the background for something a bit too processed). The WB also seems a bit too cool, even given the predominant colors. Daniel Case (talk) 03:33, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  •   Comment - I do see a bit of seeming oversharpening, now that you point it out. I think it's slight, though. Very small areas of the picture may be posterized. User:Kroton, would you like to make some edits based on Daniel's points? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:01, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Regretful   Oppose Pose, light and detail are fine but I find the cars disturbing, especially having a bright green between its legs. I also keep wondering what the statue's feet look like but maybe the hedge is unavoidable. Sorry. w.carter-Talk 03:38, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Thanks The Photographer. Yes; it is not something we are going to see everyday. I was in search for the rare damselflies in forest streams, after the rain. Stumbled by seeing this rare moment! He didn't care me much as he was busy collecting the minerals for the nuptial gift. :) Jee 16:10, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
  • I was a little surprised the article about the nuptial gift did not include the chocolate and flowers male humans use to seduce us females with. Encyclopedic error...   --w.carter-Talk 20:21, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Je ne peux pas imaginer combien d'heures vous avez passéz là à essayer de prendre cette photo. Il est tout simplement magistrale dans la qualité et la netteté, peut-être juste un peu sous-exposée. --The Photographer (talk) 21:20, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Awsome example, but I'm enjoying the Norman Rockwell feel this pic has, the hunched concentrated position, goggles (instead if face shield), baggy pants (yes, used by welders to prevent burns) has a dated look to them, the shoes (steel capped toes gives a dated look), not to mention the light and color, very 1940s just like Martin said. w.carter-Talk 21:13, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
