  •   Oppose Strong distortion, please see the Ferris wheel, its should be circular and not a oval, also big bird distracting (see note) --Photographer 16:43, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
    •   Comment I corrected the aspect ratio. The wheel was only slightly distorted because it is parallel to the Seine therefore its not a frontal view as the Seine River and it must be oval. I don't think the bird is distracting, I rather like it --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 17:23, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support Tetyana Yaschenko at the UCI Road World Championships 2018 in Innsbruck during the women juniors individual time trials. Isiwal encouraged me to nominate either this or another one of one of the Ukrainian riders I photographed in Innsbruck. I went for this as the other one is not 100% perfectly sharp. -- Granada (talk) 10:50, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support - Great portrait! I'd suggest cropping it just a little on the right to eliminate the part of a dark green tree, but I won't let that affect my vote as it's a minor point. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:54, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support -- Cart (talk) 23:38, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Too much in the shadow. The light drains attention toward the uninteresting grass. This composition could have worked maybe with a better lighted subject -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:48, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support because this is the only way you can have a lot of artifacts in the picture and still have a credible nomination.   Although I do think Basile has a point that a slightly higher angle of the sun would give you even better texture. Daniel Case (talk) 03:39, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support - It's a very interesting assemblage of objects, it's interesting to move my eyes around them, and sometimes, you just have to take the opportunity to get a shot that won't present itself in any other kind of light. This is a photograph of found objects, opportunistically shot in situ. Anyway, I disagree that the light on the grass spoils anything. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:05, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   weak Hmmm, doesn't really work for me, sorry. On the one side, there's the lighting (per Basile Morin). On the other, I'd generally prefer a way more radical approach, i.e. an image concentrating on selected, abstract details (cf. note, but please don't crop). Any chance you can retake the pic? --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 06:28, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Sorry, Ikan is right that this was an opportunistic photo. This was during the road works here and the pile was there one day and gone the next. I like having the whole pile in the shot with all the shapes it presents. The low raking light helps enhance the outlines of the covers, I'm not that sure a higher angle of the sun would have made the pile this interesting. I also like the contrast between the fresh sunlit spring grass and the old tired darker rusty object. --Cart (talk) 08:50, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

I won't blame the Samsung Galaxy for not being able to take great pictures, but this time it failed. --Granada (talk) 14:58, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support -- Msaynevirta (talk) 10:09, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose I'm just not convinced by the detail or colours (they seem a bit dark). It's on the lower end of resolution for FPs, and way below the resolution of most modern cameras. Adam Cuerden (talk) 10:33, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Per Adam and because it's been overprocessed (haloes along high-contrast edges due to oversharpening). --El Grafo (talk) 10:48, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
    •   Comment I personally feel that this kind of "colourless" scene fits the subject much better, as it makes it look a little ominous. The technical quality is imo adequate, the resolution is over double of the required 2 MP. --Msaynevirta (talk) 10:50, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment - This is FPC, not QIC. We're looking for a lot more than "adequate" here. I'm not voting yet, but I'll say that I agree on "colorlessness" but the photo is very small for FPC in 2018 and the technical quality is not overwhelming. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:15, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

  •   Info Does not meet the quality standards of a featured picture. (Original nomination)
  •   Delist -- Pbroks13 (talk) 16:56, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Question Could you be more specific as to why it does not meet those standards? Daniel Case (talk) 19:43, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
    • Yes, I should clarify. It fails all four categories for non-photographic media. It is not notable in its own right, and it is not of high artistic, historical, or illustrative merit. In regards to the quality of the illustration, the most glaring issue is the lion. The line-work is shoddy, and gives no depth; contrast that to the depth of the penguin. The grass is also very poorly done. Compare this coat of arms FP to others in the same category, and it is very apparent that this one is leagues below the others. I believe this was promoted at a time when standards for FP were lower (2007), and does not meet the standard that FP should be held to today. Pbroks13 (talk) 20:03, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

  •   Info created by Isiwal - uploaded by Isiwal - nominated by Granada -- Granada (talk) 12:35, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

  •   Oppose This one doesn't work for me; too much of the person is obscured.--Peulle (talk) 13:21, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Weak oppose Might work as a tighter crop on the swimmer, since I like the way the refraction makes her look like a platypus or something, but the red reflection is distracting. Daniel Case (talk) 18:08, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support --Isiwal (talk) 21:00, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Hidden subject, and the big dark shadow (of a pillar ?) reflecting in the water is very distracting. But I will support this swimmer by the same author -- Basile Morin (talk) 11:27, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  Comment Thanks for nomination, reviews and comments. The mentioned image is in my queue already --Isiwal (talk) 12:30, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  Comment The dark in not a shadow but the center line on the bottom of the swimming lane. The red reflection comes from a canopy above the starting blocks which provides shadow for the time keepers and other officials, visible because of the low angle to the surface of the water. The low position of camera imo was necessary to isolate the head from the background. --Isiwal (talk) 17:34, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Actually I find the whole too busy. Maybe the same swimmer without red water nor center line shadow could have worked well for me -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:30, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support - I think I said I liked it but that I would expect people here to object to the "harsh light and shadows". I support, because at 300% of my laptop screen, only the clump of flowers in the foreground really makes me think twice about the strength of the light, but I think that as a strategy for passing FPC, you would do well to take Daniel's advice.

  •   Comment - The bottom can't be cropped, because then, what would the horse be jumping over? I don't really see room for any crops, and the background is mostly pretty faded. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:05, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
Does it really matter what the horse is jumping over? It looks great as is. It might have been better, if we want to include what the horse is jumping, to show more space below it as well so we can better appreciate the exertion required. Daniel Case (talk) 18:59, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
I still have some tens of show jumpers on stock: with more/less obstacle, with bottom, without bottom and obstacle. Maybe I will come up eventually with one of them. But the wider the crop the more distracting advertisments will appear. Sports at this level is big business. One of my personal favorites is File:CSIO4 Linzer Pferdefestival 2017-Davide Sbardella- Triomphe van Schuttershof-6055.jpg, but it has to be reworked before I could think about a nomination. --Isiwal (talk) 21:44, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

  •   Oppose The light is great, the colors wonderful, unfortunately a main element bothering me at first sight is the chain-link fence in the background, immediately identifiable despite the blur. The bird seems enclosed, even if it's just an impression, it's enough to break the feeling of freedom a flying animal naturally evokes. But much more distracting than this is the low depth of field. F/2,8 at 200 mm is far too low. Only the eyes are in focus, the beak is completely blurry.

It was a prestige project that took longer than expected, but now the first couple has been deployed for active duty. SCNR :-P
But seriously, somehow I like the pattern in the background. And although I'd like a little bit more DOF, the beak is not an issue for me. Also, please don't cut it, every close crop I tried ended up being too crammed.--El Grafo (talk) 08:23, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

      • @Ikan Kekek: That won't be quite right, of course, as it's cropped a little bit (truncated oval to rectangle with a little added background. Doesn't really remove or add anything of note due to the chiaroscuro fadeout on her, but I really loathed that part of the original layout). Anyway, having done that, there was a lot of empty space at the bottom, and I believe the right, so the area shown will be significantly smaller.
