  •   Info A c. 1905 mosaic by William de Leftwich Dodge on the ceiling of the Surrogate's Courthouse in New York City. I managed to get my tripod out for a minute when the courthouse opened to the public during an annual New York architecture weekend (Open House New York). The light was lousy and people were everywhere, so I was happy with the result, and am yet to find a better version out there, so I figured I'd give FPC a shot. own work. — Rhododendrites talk |  18:45, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

  • I knew you would say that. :-) In that case, one of the other photos in this series would be better (perhaps this), but I wanted to try something that was between the traditional close-up of flowers and whole tree. Also, I like the layered look the large aperture gives you in this, with the big clusters in the foreground and smaller dots in the background so I chose that setting. --Cart (talk) 03:12, 24 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support I prefer not to have all flowers in focus. Depth of field is the way of telling the viewer what to pay attention to. I see the big clusters of flowers in the foreground as the main subject of the picture. And the chosen aperture does this very well. --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 04:00, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support Typical of nautical maps. Not much information on the land, only remarkable reliefs. Anchors to indicate refuge places for boat when there is storm. the small crosses indicate the reefs and the point seedling the sandbanks. The text is interresting. If the cartographer is French the cartridge is in German and the denominations are in different languages. The card is a little bit yellow but his interest is enough to name it.--S. DÉNIEL (talk) 20:19, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
      Info Yes, despite the fact that this map looks simple on first shight, it gave very useful information to the past users, as you very well spotted! I never thought of the French Bellin writing the cartuche in German. Possibly because it was published in Germany (Nuremberg).

      Info Thanks for the advice Daniel Case. Does this mean that the map has to be scanned again as png, or can I change it to png by using photoshop, let's say? Actia Nicopolis (talk) 06:03, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
It's a pretty good scan as is and I think you can change it in Photoshop. But, I suppose, if you want to make sure it's really good you could rescan it as a .PNG. Daniel Case (talk) 06:26, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
Addendum: per Colin's comment in the nomination below, it would probably make a better .PNG if it was in that format from the beginning. Daniel Case (talk) 17:39, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support but ... maybe we could make it a .PNG since it's 2D? Daniel Case (talk) 05:15, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
    • Daniel, I think you man "since it is a pen-and-ink line drawing" rather than "since it is 2D". PNG would be preferable but only if saved as PNG as early as possible and before retouching (ideally from the original scan, but at least when taken from the source archive). Changing this retouched JPG to PNG would not achieve anything useful. -- Colin (talk) 07:59, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
@Colin: You're right, that was how I meant to say it. As I suggested in the nomination above, it would probably be best to start again from scratch if the uploader wanted to do that. Daniel Case (talk) 17:38, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
  • This image is a gradient of gray, the paper background is light gray the png is not good for this type of image. PNG is good for vector image copying.--S. DÉNIEL (talk) 19:07, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
S. DÉNIEL it isn't the colour that is relevant but the fact that the ink creates a high contrast edge much like vector images or text does. JPG is designed for photographic or painted works where there is not much high contrast lines and edges. The compression algorithm simply can't handle the abrupt transition from dark to light, and you get little gnats flying around the edges. PNG on the other hand has no problem with this, but doesn't compress so well. Additionally, for restoration work, you need a lossless save/load cycle, so our best restorationists here always use TIFF or PNG. -- Colin (talk) 20:30, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Although pen-and-ink, the original had tones created by the edges of the lines and the crossed lines, which are a lost when the contrast has been boosted to pure black. I also dislike removing the colour of the paper, which would never have been pure white. Also, at the bottom of the original (now cropped off) is the text "engraving by an anonymous engraver at the end of the seventeenth century" which would seem to disagree with the authorship claimed here. -- Colin (talk) 07:59, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
No it is not about pen-and-ink but an engraving. It is not a drawing by hand but printing. That's why the image is very contrasted. That's why there are lines to make heaven (as Peulle said). Engraving + Printing = Full and Hollow = Black or White There are no gradients.
The editing is made to find this initial state: a white paper and black lines (engraving). I voluntarily remove the text from the bottom : it is a recent addition and it is wrong. It comes from the donor, the leclerc foundation. The Leclerc family owns supermarkets: www.fonds-culturel-leclerc.fr They are very rich but have no historical expertise.
If you had look at the source I give it all this information : Type document: PRINT - Reproduced type: ESTAMPE - Origin of the document: Private collection Edouard Leclerc - Observations: Burin engraving by an anonymous engraver late eighteenth century.
The engraver is often anonymous (except for the best ones). Generally he is not the author of the drawing but the one who reproduces it for printing. Antoine Aveline was also an engraver but that does not mean that he made this engraving himself : - https://books.google.fr/books?id=x5VUAAAAYAAJ&dq=Antoine%20Aveline%20BREST&hl=fr&pg=PA1703#v=onepage&q=Antoine%20Aveline%20BREST&f=false - https://books.google.fr/books?id=L3j_v48zL7MC&dq=Antoine%20Aveline%20BREST&hl=fr&pg=PP338#v=onepage&q=Antoine%20Aveline%20BREST&f=false - you see in these two links that the artist was a designer, engraver and he is coming to Brest.
To find the author : Primary reference : le Manuscrit "Description historique, topographique et naturelle de l'ancienne Armorique" de Christophe-Paul de Robien (1698-1756) - Secondary reference : http://www.bretania.bzh/EXPLOITATION/Default/doc/OAI_7/TABLETTE_3091
It would be more correct to ask for information before accusing.--S. DÉNIEL (talk) 19:26, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, but that is not entirely correct. Old inks used in prints were never totally black, that is a later invention. That is why you see faint shifts in color in the "black" lines. Also the papers were not of the dense, compact qualities we get today, but more porous (and never as white as this) so the ink leaked out a bit from the black areas. I'm sure an 18th century printer would be ecstatic if s(he) saw this image, because this is what they were striving for but could never do. --Cart (talk) 19:40, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
ok cart, mais j'ai répondu a quelqu'un qui a cru que c'était un dessin à la plume et à l'encre. C'est surtout l'usure de la plaque qui finissait par rendre imprécis les lignes. Une première impression pouvait atteindre une très grande finesse. Cela dit j'ai mis les deux versions et il suffit de comparer les deux pour voir que ma retouche ne retire rien. Regarde toi-même les deux images, l'une a coté de l'autre et jugera par toi-même. N’oublions pas que ce qu’on appelle original n’est qu’un scan --S. DÉNIEL (talk) 20:17, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
S. DÉNIEL, you are right I wasn't paying enough attention and it is in fact an engraving. But as Cart says, the effect of real ink on real paper creates at the fibre level shades and tones. When you increase the contrast as much as this, the square pixels become the edges, and it looks rough. -- Colin (talk) 20:30, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Je comprends votre point de vue, M Déniel, mais chacun à son goût. Désolé. --Cart (talk) 20:34, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
Pas de problème, chacun a ses propres goûts. Cela dit, si on regarde la photo de l’indien ci-dessous. On demande à ce qu’elle soit restaurée et il y a peu de votant. Idem sur le carte ci dessus. Comment faire passer un document ancien en FP si la moitié des votants veulent une restauration et l’autre moitié n’en veut pas? --S. DÉNIEL (talk) 07:24, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
Les restaurations sont acceptables, mais elles doivent être effectuées avec soin et avec beaucoup de sensibilité. Une restauration consiste à conserver l'objet, pas à l'améliorer ni à le moderniser. --Cart (talk) 08:09, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose as Colin. Charles (talk) 08:24, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose I love the original qualities of old maps and turning them into B&W prints is never a good idea IMHO. Doing such a radical version of it, deprives it of "its soul" to speak in an artsy fashion. --Cart (talk) 18:44, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment - I've crossed out my support vote, because the others are right about problems with documentation. There's no reason to introduce errors that are not in the source. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:58, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
There are three references on the work and two references on the context and the author. What do you want more?--S. DÉNIEL (talk) 07:32, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

  •   Weak support In this darkness, the settings are maybe the best possible, but still this shallow depth of field make blurred some important elements like the ovens. Also the worker is seen from behind. I still support because this place with professional tools is interesting, and the action is in focus -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:03, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support This is one of those photos that completely don't work in terms of aesthetics ... the shapes are all chaotic, there are no lines, no form. But ... I find something gritty and industrial, something very 19th century, in this. You really get the feeling this is not only as it is done, it is as it has been done. (I do think the subdued colors help very much with this). Daniel Case (talk) 02:19, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support Per Basile the view from behind the worker is a bit less involving, but I don't understand Daniel's artistic negativity. There is a line of three ovens, with an odd number being powerful. There is the eye-line from worker to glass, emphasised by the tongs. And the rails (?) on the floor form the third line of a triangle round these elements. The circles and square shapes of the ovens remind me of some IQ "what's next" puzzle. The third oven acts like a glowing eye looking at the glassmaker. The pink 1 on the wall is a little distracting; I'd have been tempted to clone that out. -- Colin (talk) 07:45, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
For me no one line is strong enough to stand out on first glance. I didn't realize I had to like an image for the same reasons you do. Sorry. Daniel Case (talk) 19:43, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
Daniel, you don't, and I didn't say you did. If you assert an image has no lines, no form and the shapes are chaotic, then you should be cool if someone might disagree with you on that. -- Colin (talk) 20:11, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

  •   Keep My display is excellent and I'm not saying both images are exactly the same, just the difference is so insignificant it doesn't justify a delist and replace in my opinion.

For technical reasons. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:43, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
IMO if you are not an experimented photographer yourself, then you should be careful when you listen the "pseudo-specialist", especially those who those who have easy criticism, they are usually the same who are much more inclined to criticize photos of others than to their own photography, and nothing is less sure that they are able to do better...

Also, I'm surely not saying I could do better. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:59, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
Just for your info, this size is absolutely not a small size in regard to that camera. See [1]. And almost all the opposers, are not really able to do better with their bigger camera, otherwise I wonder where are their so good nomination(s) of long exposure photography. Regards, Christian Ferrer (talk) 05:14, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
As one of the opposers, I add a comment. I do not submit long-exposure shots and it's not my area of expertise, but I feel I am able to make a technical appraisal of image technical quality. I suspect that many of the appraisals of my macro lens photos are done by talented photographers/photo enthusiasts who have never taken macro photos of frisky insects at ground level. But they can judge the results, having looked at many similar FP nominations. Charles (talk) 10:40, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

      Comment I see, but I meant the whole composition. To your point: I think, you only see this if you really zoom in. If you see this in two megapixels (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/bd/Fly_agaric_(Amanita_muscaria)%2C_New_Forest-FocusStacked.jpg/1732px-Fly_agaric_(Amanita_muscaria)%2C_New_Forest-FocusStacked.jpg ), I don't really see this. Habitator terrae (talk) 12:44, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment Great but I'm a little bit confused. The title says "focus stack" but this is really far from anything you'd expect of a focus stack. However, I think it's rather obvious that the shallow DoF is part of the composition. The only shortcoming is in my eyes that the WB is a little bit too much on the warm side. If you'd fix that I'd immediately support because besides that it's really a lovely picture. --Code (talk) 15:41, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

  •   Comment I find this an interesting picture to look at. Good quality mostly as well. But I have a concern about some of the colors in there. For example the green on the trees to the left - it seems very strong kind of green. Were the trees illuminated by green lamps? It feels maybe oversaturated. Same concern is about the blueness of the sky on the left as it feels too colorful aswell. Again, I can't tell for sure if it really was like this, or if the picture is slightly oversaturated? All best, --Ximonic (talk) 11:46, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • The differnce of colors because of the lamps with different color temperature on the street (there are lamps with cold white light near the green trees and others are yellow warm). The right part of the sky is a bit cloudy and has more "parasite light" from the street lamps. Thank You. --Moahim (talk) 13:11, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Yes, I put out some bird food (which is why I call it a set-up), which the squirrels steal anyway. I found it was the only way to get a mouth-open shot. If you put a nut out, he/she grabs it and runs away. Charles (talk) 19:57, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

  •   Oppose Sorry to spoil the party but ... his eye. You don't really see it in thumb but when full screen then the white grid on the eye just keeps grabbing your attention. I guess it is your conservatory forming the catchlight. I keep thinking the poor squirrel has an eye defect. I don't know if you can do any photoshop magic or try again from another angle. It is a shame because otherwise it is good. -- Colin (talk) 07:53, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • I thought about changing the catchlight of my conservatory, but it is so clear I decided to keep it as the setting is not pretending to be in the wild (though the squirrel is wild!) Charles (talk) 08:26, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
