  •   Info The interior of Scots' Church, Melbourne, Australia, as viewed from the rear of the church looking toward the altar. The current church was constructed between 1871 and 1874, and was built with the intention of being the "most beautiful building in Australia". The interior features basalt aisle columns, a set of stained-glass windows depicting the Last Supper and other scenes, and a timber-beamed roof.

  •   Oppose I think the view from higher up, on the balcony, is superior: File:Scots' Church Interior 2, Melbourne, Australia - Diliff.jpg. Less vertical angle-of-view so less vertical perspective effects such as making the roof look stretched. You also see more from that position. -- Colin (talk) 18:56, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Fair enough - I know you tend not to like it when these pictures include too much vertical field of view, and I can understand. I did see that one as well but thought I'd go for this because I suspected some people might oppose the other because of the slight distortion of the bottom corners. We'll give it a go if this one doesn't pass. Cmao20 (talk) 19:34, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
  • I know some people think an Alt should just be for a different crop/processing of same image, but I'd be tempted to try an Alt for the balcony view. Might be simpler to let folk choose which they prefer, and I don't think both should be featured. -- Colin (talk) 21:46, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

AlternativeEdit

 

  •   Support As Colin suggests above, I have added the view from higher up on the balcony as an alternative. I agree that both images should not be featured as they essentially depict the same scene. Personally I actually prefer this one too - it has a bit more 'wow factor' and is a more unusual perspective than the classic shot - but let's see what people think.

@Cmao20: Actually, it is closer to 13mm long for adults, 15mm for larvae. --BoothSift 06:38, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

  •   Comment You're talking nonsense about the colour. First, I never change colours and second, insects don't have real colours. They are generated by light reflections. And that just is very yellow on this yellow flower. The only evidence that I see here is that you want to kick off alleged competitors. --Hockei (talk) 12:21, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

  • We promote pictures all the time because we like the craftsmanship behind them, how the light falls on a tree, the curve of a bottle, the color of a flower, the lines in a slope, etc. All very subjective reasons and digital photography is hardly groundbreaking by now. I don't see why we can't promote some moving pictures on the same grounds. Educational? I don't care if it has the heron's feeding habits wrong, what I care about is that it teaches that unselfish generosity can be rewarding even if you don't expect it. A rather good thing to educate youngsters in IMO. (Sorry about the spoiler, but it has been viewed by a lot of people now.) In the old days, such morale was taught with the help of allegories and fables, now we have animations. I don't think that grapes are what foxes normally eat either, but people usually overlook that in favor of the fable.--Cart (talk) 19:50, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
  • I don't see a problem. Herons eat worms. And excellent EV. Charles (talk) 21:55, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
@Colin: Fish are the main diet, however herons do eat worms. --BoothSift 00:34, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Don't get hung up on the worms. I only mentioned it as the only educational aspect I could find was heron diet, and that was wrong. They might eat worms occasionally, but they aren't its main diet and there is no way the chicks would refuse any food. While there is a moral story, that argument holds for many works of fiction.
Compare Elephants Dream which was created on open source software to demonstrate what it could do. It has its own wiki article so is notable itself. This is a commercially produced short film to promote a big Chinese company (though with a oddly American-looking fisherman). Since adverts and other promotional material are not typically sold (and I assume the dog remains trademarked) then giving this a free licence is just a clever way for the promoters to increase its footprint on the web. The Commons I like is free, independent and has an educational mission. This is Commons being abused as a platform for the commercial promotion of large corporations. Don't think that represents us at our "finest" at all. -- Colin (talk) 08:00, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) We are usually very happy when professional photographers with companies and other companies (like SpaceX) release their material to us via OTRS. Yes, it is beginning to dawn on marketeers that it is good to give out some free photos and media. That is why we these days have so many good free photos of politicians and other notable people, some of which are FPs. This is the same thing. --Cart (talk) 08:36, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Limited images from promotional material can be very useful to illustrate a product or people. SpaceX launches are notable so having material that documents them is great. I think this crosses the line too much. It isn't providing information about a product or the company. It is just brand promotion dressed up in a cartoon, and you can see from their Wiki article that the company is heavily investing in promoting its brand. There's nothing notable here. We seem to have a mindset with film/CGI that anything with a free licence is in scope. I don't think pure advertising/promotion is a valid use of Wikimedia servers. -- Colin (talk) 10:34, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
I think we are just as guilty of helping big brands ourselves when we promote gorgeous photos of cameras, watches, booze, airplanes and luxury cruise ships to FP. --Cart (talk) 10:52, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
No we aren't "just as guilty" as those have educational value, those illustrate real actual things and having a great picture of them hugely improves Wikipedia or WikiVoyage or someone's educational book on how best to use your camera, etc. On their own, the promotional value is low and they represent distinct products. We'd have more problems if the camera was obscured with a splash saying "World's fastest autofocus" or a ship had a banner saying "Live your dreams on a --- cruise". We don't currently have folk uploading promotional short films for luxury cruises, with voice-overs from famous actors, and beautiful models pretending to be captains and waiting staff. Or an advert where some Canon brand ambassador is standing in a breathtaking location and explaining why he chooses Canon to get the job done. I hope you'd think those were out-of-scope.
This film is totally about brand promotion, which is not concerned with getting across information but about establishing good emotions for the brand. We don't learning anything about JD.com at all, or about fishing or about herons. But that cute dog mascot is stuck in your neurons linked to positive emotions. Someone somewhere in a marketing meeting, dreamed this up solely as a way of getting "cute dog mascot" brand awareness up from X% to Y% and about ensuring that brand awareness is a positive one. "Generosity" is in the film not as a moral tale to improve society but because that's a positive social value we now link to "cute dog mascot" and will recall if we see the JD.com logo. -- Colin (talk) 11:49, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
If you are so opposed to this film, why don't you nominate it for deletion per out of scope, I think that would be a more appropriate place for such discussions. That way you will get a better response from the community on whether free material from Company A is good and free material from Company B is bad. Here where we should mainly discuss the quality of the film. Btw, personally I think the dog is ugly. --Cart (talk) 12:36, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
I've thought about it but "in-scope" deletions are notoriously difficult. There is a gap between "so obviously out-of-scope that the community wishes to delete the file and prevent any use on any project" and "so barely in-scope that it isn't an example of our finest educational media files". -- Colin (talk) 13:19, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support - I respectfully disagree with Colin on this. It's a cute film and very well done. It doesn't matter to me if it promotes a company (and if it does, not so well for anyone like me who still hasn't a clue which company it is). Hell, every Disney film promotes a product, if you think about it, even if the product was originally the Disney films themselves. I don't think that would ever make a Disney film unworthy of a feature in the alternate universe in which they decided to make one freely licensed. I can also definitely think of advertisements that if they ever became freely licensed would be great FPs. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:30, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
  • +1 ― Gerifalte Del Sabana 01:31, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
  • I watched the film without knowing (or caring) if there was a hidden marketing objective. Colin has many FPs that prominently promote products made by Philips, Sony, Russell Hobbs etc. What's the difference? And should we investigate whether the Tower of London was secretly marketing itself through its gossipping ravens? Charles (talk) 20:09, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
  • My photos don't "promote" any products. They are neutral. They could be used to promote a product. They can also be (and are) used to illustrate a Wikipedia article about a shaver, camera or steam iron. And they do so at high level quality of illustration. That's the difference. This is a fictional cartoon created by a marketing agency. Yes you aren't supposed to spot the hidden marketing objective. And you aren't the target market (yet) because this is a huge Chinese brand. If you were Chinese, you'd recognise the dog. The film director wrote "we ... saw an opportunity to play with his [mascot dog Joy's] innocence, and connect the audience with the company’s ethos in a genuine and meaningful way". The film closes with title "Make Joy Happen" which is a current brand theme. JD asked the production company to make a short film to promote their brand. That's 100% what this is about and 0% about what Commons is about. -- Colin (talk) 20:39, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Still doesn't work for me. The best thing is usually to "tile" the big image. The original is presented in four tiles, but they are of uneven size making two of them too large anyway. If this version (not the 50% jpeg) could be tiled into 6 or 8 tiles, I think anybody could view/download it and if necessary re-assemble the image in their computer. --Cart (talk) 11:24, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

  •   Support Habitator terrae 🌍 11:15, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
    Habitator terrae while I think the GAP original is a bit dark, you should not change the colour balance. You have no reference and can't just pick a grey tile and say "make that neutral grey". If the tiles have a warm hue then that may be quite natural: this isn't a computer image printed on Xerox copy paper. It is likely the GAP professionals had a colour checker card to ensure their equipment/process was calibrated. Also your file size seems a bit extreme at 592MB. Photoshop with maximum quality 12 gives 436MB but the original was only 207MB so there is little point in saving any higher quality than that. For example Photoshop level 10 is 198MB which is a considerable saving and likely to make the image more accessible. On my PC I have a version with a +1ev exposure increase, a slightly more generous crop (27993×18139), original colour balance (a little warmer) and an sRGB profile so folks all see the same colours. I can stick on Dropbox or upload here if there is interest. -- Colin (talk) 15:43, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
    @Colin: I don't change the clam; I look at the color levels and change for every RGB channel the max and min input to the real max an min color (defined by a minimun level with my eyes). So this wasn't real color balance. This all was done by GIMP, and saved with 100% JPEG quality, without using the original quality, because that remove data for future edits. Habitator terrae 🌍 17:22, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
  • @Habitator terrae, Yann: I don't understand your first bit about "the clam"? But it sounds like what you've done is not really an acceptable adjustment. Most images not not reach min and max for RGB and many do not reach min and/or max at all. I would really not expect an old mosaic to be bright white and each colour saturated -- generally they have low contrast and saturation. I did suspect you had effectively increased the global contrast. I have to   Oppose for now because this is an artwork scanned by professionals. Btw, the way to save a copy that avoids removing data for future edits is to save as PNG then generate any JPG copies you need from that. I can upload a version I mentioned above. If you both have no objections I could overwrite this "retouched" file and ping folk, or I could upload separately to a different file (but then need Yann's permission to create a third alt and it gets a bit messy). If folk really want the highest-quality version, I could download the four higher-resolution tiles and recreate this sized image from those. -- Colin (talk) 17:55, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
@Colin: You can upload a separate file, and I will eventually replace the alternative. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:41, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
Yann, ok, it will this evening before I can do this. -- Colin (talk) 07:41, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Hopefully there is a size for everyone there. -- Colin (talk) 23:23, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
The ZoomViewer works for all sizes including the gigapixel one! (FYI when you first access ZoomViewer for a new image, it creates a cache of image tiles to use, which for very large images takes so long you get an error message. But if you are patient, the cache gets created eventually, and when you try again it works). Yann since the gigapixel version can be viewed with ZoomViewer and is the highest quality/resolution image we have, and is identical but for size with the two others, I would propose that we should feature as "finest" the gigapixel image.. -- Colin (talk) 09:34, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
This is very weird. The ZoomViewer works here, even for the biggest one, but not for the current nomination, and even for smaller ones. :oSSS Yann (talk) 17:05, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Ok, I admit, I was sloppy here. I was pinged by Colin (about the new versions) who now reprimanded me on my talk page. I looked at the versions he uploaded and assumed one of them had also been uploaded onto this alternative version as Yann indicated he would do once they were available. I hope that offer still stands and I will leave my support vote here in the meantime. --Cart (talk) 09:45, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

The arrow could be more vertical (and maybe the tilt corrected), but this is less architecture than reporter photography, and we know that this arrow was leaning at this stage to collapse soon. I think this work is almost professional level (see at 6 Mpx), since it's rare to be so close of such a big fire (and as the author says on twitter a few minutes later the police asked the people to keep outside the security perimeter).

Also you can catch blue hour just during two months (December and January) in year. In other time tower is closed for visitors in blue hour. One more thing.

The "NOT CENSORED" phrase gets bandied about by people utterly ignorant of what censorship really is and the limited scope of those policies. Commons does not censor what files it hosts in case someone should be upset (though it certainly censors material that is illegal or uploaded to harass). Wikipedia does not censor its articles content in case someone should be upset. But as WP:GRATUITOUS explains, we also try to avoid deliberately offending others, and find alternative ways to present information or images if possible. If you think for a minute that hiding an "erotic image" behind a link saying "NSFW" or "Erotic image" will cause fewer people to look and reduced "visibility" of those images, you don't understand how the mind works.
The censorship policies on both projects do not extend beyond File space on Commons and Article space on Wikipedia. Forums, user and talk pages and community newspapers are all subject to what grown-ups call "editorial restraint". It was clear to anyone watching Websteralive's account that they were here to provoke and cause trouble, and were likely a sock account. They have now been blocked indef.
Basile, even people who are quite comfortable with such images appreciate that readers should have control over when, where and whether to view them. It is not acceptable to view nude imagery in the office, on public transport, or a library or study hall, for example. Further one does not have to be a "prude", as you put it, to regard such images as problematic. Most feminist opinion regards such images as objectification of women, designed to reward the "male gaze": women are reduced to sexual objects for the pleasure of a male viewer, and often where the image is created/photographed by a man. This is modern mainstream opinion: nobody sticks a Pirelli calendar in the office these days. Wikipedia and Commons already have a problem with being considered hostile and unwelcoming to women. Repeatedly nominating such images here is simply an act of male aggression. -- Colin (talk) 09:20, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
This user, Websteralive, is probably a standard teenager who enjoys smoking weed while watching erotic programs. Well, not the best manner to seduce attractive ladies in the real world, but there's an age for that, and in my view the current disruption is not absolutely harmful. This is more touching and funny than inadmissible "male aggression"   See at least six regular reviewers and respectable photographers supporting this nomination. Several of his QI candidates, reviewed by experienced users, will be promoted soon, some others have passed already. These nude photographs taken by Destailleur are not that bad in reality. This one for example arrived 4th position in the picture of the year.
Now the thumbnails of these QIs are in the archives, and trying to hide them because "they have been nominated by a terrible sock-puppet" would be even more pathetic than the wrong edits this person did.
Youth is nice in general. Young people make mistakes but they also bring new things, new materials, modern ideas. I understand teenagers get bored with repetitive churches, deserted landscapes and austere ceilings. Everybody, males and females, feel usually concerned with eroticism, feminists and machos too  . There's no consensus now to say this image for example is not featurable. So why hiding it ? Several users just vote "oppose" because of the (very bad) nominator, but imagine if this work was promoted ? Now the question of the censorship becomes a real problem. Because such promoted works usually go straight among the other POTY candidates, and should not be hidden.
"Not safe for work" ? Of course this text replacing an image is totally safe for work, because these are just words, not representation. As when we read "cock" or "pussy", nobody sees what is behind these alphabet letters. And when you work at the university, or at the bank, or anywhere, you just don't click on a link saying "erotic image here"   This is how the mind works.
Back to the picture, she really shows sumptuous curves Frankly, after a caesarean (means after pregnancy), such a wonderful body is impressive. Charm photography, very instructive -- Basile Morin (talk) 14:38, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Tempered   Support - We're looking into the mist at sunrise. This is the kind of photo that's all about light, shade and composition, not detail. Compare File:Monet - Impression, Sunrise.jpg. Would you complain about a "lack of detail" in that painting? I'm guessing you wouldn't, because the artist is so famous now. Eatcha may be pretty unknown at this point, but that doesn't mean we should dismiss a photo that is intentionally about a mood, an impression, and the beauty of the play of light, shadow and fog on sky, land and water, and not about the smaller details that would represent a different style. The only reason my support is currently tempered is that the subtle striations in the sky aren't an effect of nature, but of mild posterization. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:47, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Will cast an unpopular   Oppose because there is a very visible halo over (parts of) the mountain and also the light levels of the field/mountain is just off. Too light, too washed out. (eta: cmao20 is also correct about lack of details full size) -- KennyOMG (talk) 14:51, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
@KennyOMG No worries for the oppose. I think people should be encouraged to oppose more :)
The halo was caused by sharpening. Even though I think it was acceptable, I've reduce it a bit. The mountains might have been too light, I reduced shadows. Sharpness - I honestly think it's sharp enough. It's a dark mountain at night basically, there was no source of light. If it was taken during the day then yes, I'd say that it's totally unsharp. But I respect that you think the opposite. Regards, --Podzemnik (talk) 20:40, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
It's more like a halo that's usually introduced by Clarity in PS (or equivalents). More visible on the left side than other parts. Overal levels still bother me in ways I have difficulty expressing, it almost feels like an "uncanny valley" sort of situation. Sorry but will keep my vote; only thing it will do is delay the FP confirmation anyway. -- KennyOMG (talk) 17:43, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Of course the image is not perfect technically - it's distorted a little at the edges - and I quite agree that it wouldn't have been nominated last week. But it now has value as a historical shot as well as a documentation of an extraordinary piece of architecture. When Our Lady of Paris is rebuilt, there's no guarantee it will look exactly the same, and I think an FP of the cathedral as it was before the fire is a good idea - to document what we've lost in the fire. Thanks for the lovely picture. Cmao20 (talk) 14:45, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

    Thanks for pointing me to the category. Many of those are lovely, but I stand by a support for this one. To me, the point of this image is that it specifically depicts the spire and roof, the parts of the cathedral most severely damaged or destroyed by fire. Cmao20 (talk) 18:08, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
    • "Thanks for pointing me to the category". You should have already looked, though it doesn't help that category link is to Italy! We are judging "the finest on Commons" which requires researching the existing category of Featured Pictures of this (and/or similar buildings) and our existing extensive collection of images which may not yet have been nominated here. While some images that are not photographically/artistically good have other merits that make them superb, the main things going for this one is the great detail of the 50MP image and recentism. Regulars here will have seen this many times after tragic events, and nearly every time the nomination is rejected without prejudicing a later nomination. This building is one of the most photographed subjects in the world. So, the standard required for FP is high. -- Colin (talk) 18:56, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
      • I do try to look for existing FPs, Colin, I had already found some using the FP galleries, it's just the category I hadn't come across before until A. Savin showed me. But, looking in that category, I see five generic shots of the outside of the cathedral, one of the interior, one of the ceiling, one of some stained glass, one of the towers, two of a façade, and three historical shots from the C19th. Nothing that depicts the exact parts of the cathedral that were destroyed in the fire, and certainly not at the resolution of this picture. And regretfully, we’re not likely to get anything better until the cathedral has been rebuilt – which could take 15 years, and may not look the same as it did before. Maybe it’s a better argument for VI than for FP, but that’s my rationale anyway. Cmao20 (talk) 20:48, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
