  •   Info These were three of about a hundred hogweeds growing along a ditch. They grew under almost identical conditions and were selected for a series to show the development of the bud from first stage up to just before blooming. All by me, -- cart-Talk 13:44, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

  •   Comment trouble is, the backgrounds are all so different (and little depth of field). Charles (talk) 13:54, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
  • The ditch was not uniform in color and I liked that the different color schemes matched the different plants, giving each photo a softer look than a very contrasting unform green or something like that. The focus is just on the plants and not on the background. These plants are really big so they are all focus stacked and the background was about a meter or so behind each plant, so not so "shallow" DoF. Just covering the middle plant required eight photos to get the entire plant sharp. The scale here is a bit different than 4 cm butterflies. :) Are you suggesting I should only nominate one of them and skip the set thing? --cart-Talk 14:08, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
  • I only looked at the First bud which is not in focus, but the others are nice and sharp if over-exposed. I just don't think they work brilliantly as a set, perhaps the different sizes is a problem too. Charles (talk) 15:12, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support - Works for me. The bud may be a little less sharp than the others, and I wouldn't mind a little more sharpening of that frame if it could help, but I think it's good enough to be an FP, as are the others. It's also OK with me that these are 3 different plants - that's clearly indicated in the file descriptions. One question: The top of the last one isn't already blooming? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:30, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
  • No, only the stamens have emerged and the petals are still unfolded and curled up around the center of each flower. When it blooms, the petals will become much larger and the whole shape of the plant will go from the "ball shape" and form a "disc" of flowers. --cart-Talk 23:12, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
  •   Fixed I did some very light selective sharpening on the First bud. --cart-Talk 15:05, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Thanks, that's nice. I would have clicked "thank", but I don't see a link to the nomination page. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 15:18, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
  • No problem, Ikan. :) These set noms are always a bit tricky to handle IMO. If you want to get hold of the nom page, you have to first click on 'edit' and after that just cancel your editing whitout doing any editing. That will set you on the set nom page. On that subject, I was looking for somewhere to add the category for this nom, couldn't find it though. AFAIK promoted set noms also show up in the 'normal' FP categories. --cart-Talk 15:29, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
