  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I have next to zero experience with wildlife photography and never used a lens that long, so maybe this is a stupid question, but: It seems that at 1/2500 s there would have been some wiggle room to stop down a bit more in order to get a bit more DOF? I mean, you perfectly nailed the focus on the eye, which is amazingly sharp, but the beak is pretty soft even at screen size (1024×1024 px). Not sure how to vote here yet … --El Grafo (talk) 12:02, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
  • It is not a question of lack of light. In wildlife photography, when you take a portrait (close up or full body), you want the background to be as blurred as possible, that will usually improve the image. 1/2500 is not strictly needed here, but you'd better use a quick shutter speed with birds, they make really fast small movements that can ruin the image. --Kadellar (talk) 13:13, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral This is indeed very interesting with "reality" and reflection seamlessly blending without leaving any discernible water line. Makes my brain go nuts, which is meant in a positive way. I'd compare it to listening to one of the more obscure Zappa songs: complex music and strange lyrics (for a non-native speaker), so I have to listen to them actively and carefully multiple times for them to make sense, but after some time I usually start to like them. Most of those songs are not really danceable or radio-friendly, though, and I fear that this image may lack the FPC equivalents of these words (whatever they are) as well. --El Grafo (talk) 11:51, 24 April 2015 (UTC) I sincerely hope this comment makes sense to anyone but me. If not, it's obviously a side effect of looking at the image for too long ;-)
  • Yes, that's what I meant. --Code (talk) 11:59, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
  • I like this review, the analogy. If you look up mangrove photographs, 99% will be photographs from the outside looking at the edges of mangroves. Pictures from inside a mangrove are rare, and difficult because of the visual confusion, branches, reflections, light seeping in... The idea of this photograph is precisely that, to show the confusion, the visual confusion. The ripples of the water, the reflections make it hard even there to distinguish objects, until one just sits long enough and let the mangrove in. --Tomascastelazo (talk) 20:50, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

    • I agree, I think there might be some problems with the processing. There is some inconsistency in the sky. I'm guessing that tone mapping or exposure fusion was used, the dull muddy sky is a common problem with that technique. Diliff (talk) 10:01, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose for now, although I could be persuaded to support if reprocessed to fix the issues with the sky. The whole scene looks slightly too dark too.

    • Symbol support vote.svg Support. Improved. I still think the right side of the sky is a bit dull and not very blue and the transitions between the frames is not great (you can clearly see a difference in brightness), but the left side is improved. Overall, it's just good enough for a support, but if you still have some energy to improve the sky on the right, it would be another step in the right direction. Did you make sure that each frame had the same exposure and the same white balance? It seems like something isn't quite right. Diliff (talk) 21:37, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

  • ✓ Done I have uploaded a panorama with less stitching error, but this has moved to another place in the picture but harder to see. Thanks for all the reviews. The panorama is from 7 picture taken vacation in southern France, and I was not prepared to take panoramas, so the seven picture are taken with f/11 but different shutter time from 1/320 to 1/160 that leads to problems. And the boats have moved a bit and that leads to stitching errors. THX all. --Villy Fink Isaksen (talk) 13:38, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

View of the interior of the building of the Tate Modern, a modern art gallery located in London, England. It is Britain's national gallery of international modern art and the building itself, a former power station, was built in 1947 and 1963. The power station closed in 1981 and instead of demolishing it, the building was reinvented, making out of it an example of adaptive reuse, the process of finding new life in old buildings. The building itself still resembles the 20th century factory in style from the outside and that is reflected on the inside by the taupe walls, steel girders and concrete floors.

    • Michael, this is the wrong place to discuss the copyright status of this picture, which already have been discussed ad nauseam and settled. David Slater is not the photographer (that's the point), and he sent a DMCA notice to the WMF and it was rejected. BTW his arguments are complete bullshit.

      • See m:Wikimedia_Foundation_Transparency_Report/Requests_for_Content_Alteration_&_Takedown#Monkey_Selfie. -- KTC (talk) 22:41, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
      • Yann, while I agree the copyright issue has been discussed ad nauseam and settled in the US, the image still strongly divides opinion on the ethics (enshrined in law or otherwise) of treating this image as free. A featured picture is supposed to be one "of the finest on Commons" and if some feel it is not ethical to host/promote such works then their opinion is a valid aspect that judgement of "our finest", even if some disagree. While threats of legal action continue in the UK, it would probably be unwise for any UK-based person to re-use this image [other than "fair use" for commentary, which seems to be 99% of its usage anyway], which surely affects its status as being among our best free works. -- Colin (talk) 07:54, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
        • Colin, the copyright status has been reviewed by several legal experts, including from WMF and the US government. I don't think there is any doubt that it is in the public domain in the USA and most countries. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:01, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
          • I know and I agree it seems pretty settled wrt copyright law. Doesn't mean that the ethics are settled (they clearly aren't, especially outside of Commons) or that the continued threat of legal action in the UK can be completely ignored. These two issues exist, regardless of whether one agrees with them or not. -- Colin (talk) 09:54, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
          • Yann, I understand that you don't see any ethical problem here. I do. The copyright situation in the UK is by no means as clear as it is in the US, and if it were to be adjudicated by a UK court the decision could go either way. That, and the perception that Commons is featuring the image out of spite is very relevant, in my view. The comment by Daniel Case, below, exemplifies the type of hostile and unpleasant view that I find most regrettable. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 10:29, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
            • Sorry to say, but talking about ethics here is a big hypocrisy. I am pretty sure than the camera owner, now being known as "the man who helped creating the monkey selfie", is a much better commercial position than being a photographer of an ordinary picture of an ordinary monkey. Beside, we promoted pictures of much worse ethics than this without anyone raising an eyebrow about it. And we will certainly do it again in the future. That's not an issue in itself, Commons being not a project for promoting ethics. I would be happy to discuss this in a RFC about "ethics and Commons", this nomination is not the right place to do it.

Just some ideas that came to my head: 1) A lower angle could have enabled you to keep the branches at the top left corner out of the frame. Maybe concentrating on one of the two sections of the dead tree would have helped too. 2) The whole image is quite dark, but not dark enough to make this look like an intentional choice by the photographer (could potentially work very well with this subject). 3) The white balance seems to be a little bit too yellow (you won't have much living green things this time of the year of course, but still …). 4) I've got a suspicion that this subject might work quite well in black & white. --El Grafo (talk) 07:47, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, but I am struggling with the notion of minimalism in FPC. I don't mean this as an attack on anybody, but I personally feel that this is a kind of get-out-of-jail concept that makes an image untouchable to a set of expectations we would otherwise have, such as having a lot of EV, being an appealing and accurate representation of the motive, having nice light etc. When I look at the image, I feel that it is a good supporting photo for an article, giving people a better understanding of the facade details, but this is not something that gives me a wow effect or makes me think that the image is outstanding. Such photos might appeal to many, but I am not sure whether this is just because they are unusual and obviously different from boring standard images many creators now think should be FP. I am not denying that my oppose might be based on personal preference (I usually feel that images of entire works of architecture are superior), but at the end of the day, such preferences make our votes. BTW: The WB also looks too cold to me. --DXR (talk) 10:15, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thank you for bringing this issue to the discussion, DXR. It is a matter of fact that the so-called "artsy images" were never concensually regarded as truly useful for the project (except the reproductions of notable artists) and have usually a hard time in FPC. However we should keep in mind that Commons repository is intended to much more than just illustrating Wikipedia articles. While WP:FPC is focused on the encyclopaedic use and value of the pictures in Wikipedia, that is not the case with Commons, as our FP are used to many purposes outside Wikimedia. I always said, and that is written in my profile of Meet our Photographers (here), that I consider Photography as a means to interpret reality and to transmit such interpretation to others. That is precisely what I'm doing here with the photos of the Centro Cultural de Belém, to which a minimalistic view seems to apply perfectly. Are these images useful, besides being beautiful (for me)? I believe so. Alvesgaspar (talk) 13:35, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Alvesgaspar for your measured response. I think that the point I was trying to make is slightly different, though. I do not want to challenge the value of images like this one, in fact I do think it has EV. I just think that it is quite difficult to assess whether it is outstanding or "the best of commons", because there is little material to measure it against here. In this way, the vote becomes more of a "like vs. don't like" than I personally would like to see in this forum. I agree that WP:FP is more EV-driven, but at the same time COM:FP still is very much biased in the direction of EV on a spectrum between pure documentation and abstract art, at least if we look at what is presented here most of the time. --DXR (talk) 09:21, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral --Tremonist (talk) 12:23, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Photographing a detail of a building, particularly one of architectural merit, is as important as photographing the whole facade or interior. Having looked at other images of this building, I see it lends itself to a minimalist approach. Here we can concentrate on the coloured bricks, the little dark squares and the squares-within-squares window. No other distractions. And symmetry. I can certainly see this photo appearing in a book that discusses the building or its architect, so for me it is plenty enough educational-value (as opposed to encyclopaedic value, where it is unlikely such small details would merit inclusion). -- Colin (talk) 17:25, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
