  • The photo is not below 2MP, it is 3,110 by 1,687 pixels = 5.25Mpx. It is does however have some strange coloring, probably taken through a tinted airplane window. --Cart (talk) 09:47, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

  •   strong oppose I've had it with these downsized images. This is 2018 (image shot in 2017), the camera was able to shoot 5184×3456 pixels and we get only 3110×1687. It's a fairly "easy to take" nature format shot, so no cropping is necessary either. I cannot accept that this is "one of the finest images on Commons". Get it together, people.--Peulle (talk) 12:36, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
  • I guess that as long as we have the 2 MPx minimum, people will think it's ok to nominate photos that are downsized as long as they stay well above that limit. Perhaps you should start a discussion about higher, say 5Mpx, limit. Seeing that many photos here lately that got the "too small" comment, it might be time. --Cart (talk) 13:27, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Perhaps a discussion about increasing the minimum guideline is warranted, sure, but what really gripes me is that some people think that images should be given a quality stamp as long as they are above the minimum. They don't seem to grasp what "minimum" means, and they don't seem to read the rest of the guidelines, for instance that images should not be downsized (there's a reason that guideline is there) and that reviewers may demand more from "easy to take" images. Also, this isn't even QI - it's FP, meaning we're looking for the best of the best, not just a picture that's above the minimum level required. Everyone should always post images of the highest quality they can. Some people don't seem to understand that. OK, end rant. I'll see about opening a discussion at a later date.--Peulle (talk) 15:03, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Yes perhaps the technical quality would have been improved with HDR process, but in the current situation time was really limited. Only a few seconds available to take this single picture before my camera was driven by the crowd and the guard to the exit. Interiors of Chinese temples are often wonderful, though rather rare here, maybe because frequently lit up that way File:Miaoli-County_Taiwan_Quanhua-Temple-03.jpg. And here non-static people in the room also increased the difficulty. Thanks for your review -- Basile Morin (talk) 03:09, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Was it objectionable to them that you took a picture? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:45, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  • I don't think so. Nearly everybody on this side were taking selfies of them there, in front of these monks and nuns praying. Just we were very numerous, so not really allowed to stay long -- Basile Morin (talk) 08:54, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Thank you for explaining, and I   Support. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:52, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Blow lit areas in the central shrine and all along both sides. The crop/view focuses far too much on the rather boring ceiling, which the wide-angle view emphasises, and which correspondingly makes tiny the people and the shrine and other art works. I appreciate that some situations make HDR difficult but it can sometimes still be possible, or else expose lower and accept some noise, or else move to a Sony :-). I'll draw a suggested crop, though the resulting image is probably too small. -- Colin (talk) 07:32, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes too small, but also much less interesting without these several rows of symmetrical tables facing to each others, plus the quantity of religious statuettes embedded in the wall, not to be missed. So, definitely this crop I will keep, and I love the perspective effect of this ceiling. Thanks for the suggestion -- Basile Morin (talk) 08:07, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support Very interesting interior --A.Savin 08:54, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Weak support The support is for the rarity and complexity involved in taking such a photo. Otherwise we always get exteriors or empty interiors. I don't mind the big ceiling, church photos always include a lot of ceiling too, just not this kind that we are not used to. The vast space makes the people look humble, with a closer crop it looks just like any conference. The weak is because of the noted blown areas. At least they are not dulled to gray blobs as in a previous photo. You might want to try the trick for "almost HDR" you can do with just one photo. Make another version of this in Lightroom with a much lower exposure, place both photos as layers in Photohop on top of the original photo (that way you get the correct Exif from the original), the "underexposed" version in "the middle". After that you can erase overly bright areas in the top layer and let the darker layer shine through. Merge into a single layer. You can of course do a similar trick with the correction brush in LR, but it is often easier to control the whole thing in PS using different settings on the eraser. --Cart (talk) 09:13, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Done If still not perfect, I find the result very much improved. Thanks a lot, Cart, for this interesting technique. Another advantage of using Photoshop here in this process is that we can selectively choose a color range from the menu Select, making the operation quite faster compared to Lightroom with the correction brush. I will keep this trick in mind for the future -- Basile Morin (talk) 10:07, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes, much better. Artists always find it easier to do the finishing touches in PS since it's all about seeing the colors and the light as opposed to LR which is more about numbers. I'm more used to PS since I've used it for about 20 years now and LR for little more than one year. I hope to learn LR better and find all the little tricks in that one too. ;) Btw, I think your camera has the option to take 3 rapid photos with different preset +-EV? That is ideal for places like this. Press the button once and get 3 photos with different exposures. My camera does 3-7 different exposures and I love using it since you get instant options for blown areas. --Cart (talk) 10:36, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes we have this option with Canon too from 2 to 7 automatic different exposures. Agree it's useful in such situation. Thanks for these constructive hints and clever recommendation -- Basile Morin (talk) 11:54, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
I'm seeing the "dulled to gray blobs" effect that Cart mentioned. This is particularly apparent in the "white now grey" flowers on either side of the shrine and the "specular metal reflection now actually darker than the surrounds" on the gold shrine. The wooden round object on the table near left had a bright highlight that is now dulled and surrounded by darkened wood. The woman on the right who was reading a brightly lit paper book is now reading a book made of recycled cardboard. And the man behind her is disappointed that his white t-shirt has turned mid-grey in the wash :-). Sometimes, blown is blown. -- Colin (talk) 12:12, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Of course you can't get it perfect with just a single photo, you can only rescue the not-really-blown areas surrounding the blown areas, but I still think this photo is rare enough (city skylines are not and I demand perfection of such photos) to warrant an FP per "A bad picture of a very difficult subject is a better picture than a good picture of an ordinary subject. A good picture of a difficult subject is an extraordinary photograph." Although that part of the FPC instructions also states that opinion wars can start here... Let's just agree to disagree instead of warring. --Cart (talk) 12:27, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

  • There was an ugly board, white color and eye-catching on the right, that couldn't be just cloned out but really needed to be cropped unfortunately, then the left side as well to keep the symmetry. Thanks -- Basile Morin (talk) 09:20, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

  •   Oppose A bit small for the "new" FP standart not official, arbust distracting on foreground (note added) and composition problem (too hight angle shoot) --The Photographer 23:20, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your comments. I'm surprised to hear the opinion that a ~5 megapixel image of a small subject is too small. Nothing I can do about that (or the angle) now I suppose. I'd be happy to try cropping a bit if that's what this discussion yields, though. Maybe a bit less than the note says (such that the grass still kind of frames the subject, to the left/right and behind). Curious to get other thoughts. — Rhododendrites talk |  23:37, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Comparing your picture with images in the same FP subject, the smaller photos are at least 10 years older than this, of all the things that I told you that It's the only thing measurable, the rest is only a personal opinion humbly --The Photographer 23:46, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment I also find the size a bit small (or just limit), especially considering the composition could be cut at the bottom and on the right -- Basile Morin (talk) 04:41, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support small but convincingly nice --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 05:36, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Mostly per The Photographer. The small size (and small subject within the frame) isn't an absolute fail for wildlife, but mainly that it gets no points for detail, resolution, when we're trying to work out what is exceptional here. If this was some rare species and the lens was already 400mm then I'd be more forgiving, but this is in a city garden. I don't think subject size is really a factor, just the appropriate choice of lens. Subject distance is generally more of a limitation, and our best wildlife photography often shows a good deal of effort to get close to the subject (and hours and hours of missed chances). The green shoots are also a bit distracting. And agree that getting down at the same height as the subject is often superior. -- Colin (talk) 07:31, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

  • @Peulle, GerifalteDelSabana, Daniel Case: No, it's not an artificial background, just grass that's way out of focus because of the 600mm focal length.

@Peulle: I checked again and it's not. What may be giving you that impression is that I wasn't exactly on the center axis as I took the photo. Daniel Case (talk) 04:02, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
That might be it, yes. I'm checking the horizontals and that's when I see that things on the left aren't lining up with the right. I don't see any problems with the verticals, though.--Peulle (talk) 15:54, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Beautiful photo, especially the glass roof. Unfortunately three people in the front are disturbing the composition too much (especially the boy in the left corner) --Michielverbeek (talk) 22:04, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
@Michielverbeek: Usually I roll my eyes at "Ewww! People" opposes to things like this but I admit with this one you may have a point. I will see if Peulle's right about the tilt (I don't think so, but you never know) and probably crop the people mostly out so all you see is tops of heads. Would that work better? Daniel Case (talk) 22:10, 14 July 2018 (UTC) I don't think the people problem is repairable. I guess it would have been better if you would take this photo some seconds before or after --Michielverbeek (talk) 20:52, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

  •   Oppose There are many similar pictures from the gallery. I don't think this is outstanding.--Ermell (talk) 19:50, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Cut feet and distracting head seen from behind in the foreground. Also I agree with Peulle there's a small tilt (fixable) visible on the left side with this part of the building being not perfectly vertical. The roof is wonderful, but unfortunately we can't cut the image over the crowd, so we really have to compose with these people walking. In this kind of situation, I usually use a tripod and wait quite long, until an interesting configuration occurs, neutral or special (extra value if someone creates something). But that's not easy, and subject to luck. Here I'm bothered by the crowded bottom. Not enough free space on the floor visually to breath and feel an elegant composition -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:40, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

    KoH I just checked it and 2/3 stop would be definitely too much, the atmosphere of the images would be essentially different. If Smial wants I can offer a alternative version. Poco2 07:11, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
      Comment Simple brightening wouldn't work. Perhaps slight S-curving? I don't think it's really necessary, but I've tried a minor rework. --Smial (talk) 11:41, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
    Perhaps we'll just have to agree to disagree then. In my opinion scenes sometimes do need to be brightened from what the eye sees; for example, I've found that the optimal time to photograph during the blue hour comes 5-10 minutes after the optimal time for viewing the scene with the naked eye, using a significantly longer exposure of course. -- King of ♠ 03:25, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
