  •   Weak oppose Sorry for being the party pooper again, but long focal length or not, that looks pretty noisy for a 5DS R at 400 ISO. It's mostly luminance noise, so one might forgive it, but in combination with the over-all softness and remnants of CA (I blame the 2x TC), I'm less than wowed by the quality. It's not bad and actually looks quite OK at screen size, it's just not great. And the same is true for the content: It's not bad at all, but I wouldn't call it outstanding considering what else we've got. --El Grafo (talk) 08:07, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

I'm fine with leaves being part of the composition, but I feel that this much of the tree but not the whole tree detracts from the composition.

  •   Neutral I know that Llez does terrific work but seeing that his shell nominations rarely get critiques I will step forward to throw the first stone ;) Resolution is good, I measured that each view has about 12 MP of the possible 15 MP which is good given that you'd want to use the center area of the lens. My first real issue is the sharpening, as the structures of the shell with the very soft lighting are not easy to distinguish. More sharpening shows detail better and improves depth perception a bit. Have you tried a more directional lighting setup instead of this soft one? Secondly, the contour of the shells is too blurred, which might be caused by how you isolate the background or it's just out of focus in capture. Out of focus would be bad, but later blurring would be quite fixable. I don't want to oppose this out of respect, but for me personally such studio shots have a higher bar of quality because of the controlled environment and I think you could do much better. – Lucas 13:12, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
    •   Comment Please remember, that this shell has only 2,7 cm in length --Llez (talk) 13:16, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment Still, I've worked with the MP-E 60 mm lens—which I suppose you are using—with focus stacking and was able to get better results. If you aren't focus stacking than that might be a limiting factor. – Lucas 13:26, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose The CA and slight lack of sharpness means it doesn't reach the high level of ceiling FPs in my book.--Peulle (talk) 14:59, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support But if the CA could be fixed it would be even better. Slight quality issues don't bother me too much because this isn't the kind of image that demands one 'pixel-peep' - the wow comes from the bold, striking composition rather than from the amount of detail at full-res.

Ikan may believe that I have lost faith in this nomination, by really I haven't. I misread the discussion(in a rush) and didn't clearly see where it was heading. Therefore, I would like to stay as nominator or conominator. --BoothSift 03:58, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose We already have. Same story than this. Both similar works will be found in the same category next POTY competition. Either a delist and replace or just not this one -- Basile Morin (talk) 08:21, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
@Basile Morin:, @Lucasbosch: and @Ermell: We also have at least 19 FP of the Golden Gate Bridge. At least the two trees are different and please see Cart's comment below. The difference here is vastly greater than those--BoothSift 04:02, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Disagree. Explicit comparison here. FP is not about nominating all the good photos that can be featured, but rather to select the finest. This one is not distinctive enough. Same blue sky, same white dune, same brown dune, same kind of dead tree, same time of the day, same angle.   Where's the novelty? I think almost everybody here make the effort to choose significantly original pictures, but of course FPC can also become as boring as watching always the same nominations with very minor variations. In that case many of us will find different playgrounds, because reviewing implies effort and energy, and such redundancies can give the feeling of tiredness -- Basile Morin (talk) 07:45, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

You seem to nominate and withdraw at the drop of a hat. You withdrew. Go ahead and observe how the nomination develops, but think a little more deeply the next time you nominate and withdraw.

Too late. Actions have consequences. Ponder that. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:41, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ikan Kekek: Yes, but you didn't even give me time to react. Right off the bat, you went "I am now the nominator" as if I no longer existed. I could have just unwithdrew. Anyways since I am reclaiming this nomination, the bird nom would not comply with the guidelines. I have another nom below. If you wish to express your opinions, please notify me first. And no I am not the only one who withdraws and renominates fairly quickly, am I? --BoothSift 05:52, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
You acted rashly; I did not, and this discussion is already tiresome. I will not reply further. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:29, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
  • @Poco a poco: Since this is your photo, I believe that you should be the rightful nominator if you wish. --BoothSift 05:55, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
    Boothsift: You look now for a third nominator? Ikan took over, I wouldn't change that, unless he requires that. I didn't understand the rush to withdraw this nom, and specially mentioning Cart and me as a reason to do so. Both of us have supported this version and I indeed mentioned that I prefer this version than the current FP. We have no delivery date here, be patient and as Ikan suggested, let us watch how the nom develops. I've sometimes let noms run where I thought there is no way that they succeed, but they did, if that was your concern. Poco2 06:17, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Comment Sorry, but I often wonder where people take their wisdom to suspect something. There are neither jpg artefacts nor I saved the jpg picture multiple times. I produce my pictures from the raw file. That the DOF is too shallow in your eyes also is not understandable. I used F13. What aperture would you use for more DOF and still get this picture sharp enough? --Hockei (talk) 09:46, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment There are certain artifacts/smudgniness and blocks of pixels in your image that seem to be inherent with your camera even after correct processing. Regarding the DoF I'm not saying you could have done any better, sometimes the conditions (positioning of the animals) are unfortunate. I hope this clears it up. – Lucas 10:17, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support I see what Lucas means, I used to own a Panasonic camera that made similar blocks of pixels even if processed correctly. It doesn't bother me too much for this picture, which is otherwise a very good and tricky capture. Cmao20 (talk) 12:30, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

      Info Apparently, yes. I took several photos in the place and the sky appears more or less like this on the western part.

Alvesgaspar, why isn't Daniel's comment below proof that the color of the sky is off? As he points out, the sky's reflection in the water is blue, not aqua. Can you explain that? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:16, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

  • The engraving you found is certainly closer to the one in the nomination. Looking at the curls, necktie and shadows in the that engraving, it might be based on the one I found (1720) since it is just a book illustration of a later date (1878). --Cart (talk) 12:01, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  • didn't "find" the engraving. The file description gives sources for the Newton engraving and the tree engraving. Only the apple is original. I agree that there are similarities (the mouth shape is different) which may indicate it being derivative. The etch marks are nearly identical in the SVG. -- Colin (talk) 13:02, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Sorry, I expressed myself in a clumsy way, I apologize. --Cart (talk) 13:07, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose I don't understand why sky in the left side of the tree is black but on the other side is white. The reproduction in SVG can't have been trivial but there is less detail than the original, especially where the dark area of hair has effectively been crushed to solid black. One other problem with the montage is that Newton is lit from the left, the tree is lit from the front-right and the apple from the front. The apple just seems randomly placed. -- Colin (talk) 11:52, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  • The composition, light, placing of apple, partial heavy frame and everything is well within the artistic freedom and style of Art Nouveau. Nothing wrong with it, I only question if this work is original enough to be FP. Looking at the style of the creator, I'd also guess that the tree is borrowed from some other work. --Cart (talk) 12:25, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Yes only the apple is original. I guess it just doesn't work for me :-). It also isn't clear to me why one would want to emulate an etching in SVG rather than create a more realistic image. -- Colin (talk) 13:02, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Comment - Hi. The identification of this photo is incomplete, so I cannot judge the photo yet. From, the link that is given in the file description: "These records are manuscript watercolor views along the northwest boundary between the Rocky Mountains and Point Roberts. The sketches were created by James W. Alden who accompanied the survey party that, during the 1860's and in compliance with the Treaty of 1846, was responsible for recording characteristics of the northwestern boundary of the United States." This information is also provided there: "Specific Media Type: Paper". So "Author" is not "Unknown or not provided" but James W. Alden, and the medium must be specified as "Watercolor on paper". -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 00:38, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Can you examine the NARA template properties and set the appropriate parameter to remove the "Please do not overwrite this file" warning -- this is a restoration file, rather than an original. Also the "This file was provided to" licence text isn't correct for this file either, since this file is a derivative. What makes you think the original backing paper was neutral grey, and the painting from 1850s on pure Xerox white copy paper? Look at the white swirling cloud on the right and the leftmost edge of it. In the original, the artist has given the cloud a bright white "silver lining" but in your restoration it is a cold blue tint. I think it is one thing to repair damage but quite another to change the colours of an artwork, without any reference. It will have yellowed/aged over the years, but is unlikely to have been a modern white. Also I don't understand why the border has got slim black/transparent triangles -- it's as though you rotated the whole image after cropping. But the original border/background paper is huge so the background can be cut square. -- Colin (talk) 07:29, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Actually, this is pretty much a good picture. Sometimes humans don't manage to get so nice shots. The eyes are in focus, it is not blurry, the facial expression is awesome. The DoF is a bit narrow, but considering the distance, certainly a corrected version would get a chance as FP if it was nominated by a regular photographer. This picture is of good quality, it is a striking portrait, the monkey looks curious, smiling and surprised, that's what makes it great IMO. Because it is a selfie, it means the animal is 100% natural in its environment, not distracted by humans, just captivated by its "game". And that is special -- Basile Morin (talk) 08:12, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Support I've changed my view on this image over the years. I think what PETA did and what Wikimania did with the image was disgraceful and disrespectful, but PETA lawsuit aside, I don't buy the claim it destroyed his career. It looks like the photographer (like most) didn't have a particularly great career to begin with and is bitter that taking a viral photo didn't change things for the better. He claims he's "lost £10,000" but that's speculation about what he might have earned, not money he actually had and lost. If the 30 minutes of monkeying-around with his camera hadn't produced the "money selfie" he'd have been the same broke photographer he says he is now. The claim to fame is that it is entirely a "monkey selfie" whereas David's claim to ownership is that he engineered the situation. His story now is that he was attempting to photograph the apes as they groomed and played with him, but discovered they would play with the camera if he sat next to it, holding the tripod. If instead of being a "selfie", David had pressed the button as an ape gazed at her reflection in the glass, it wouldn't have been a "selfie" and not have gone viral. The whole magic of the photo is the "what's the chance of that?" and "what a clever ape!" reactions. Being a professional photographer is about consistently satisfying the client with great photos and being relied upon to do so next time, not one single photo created by a chance encounter in 30 mins. A look at David's website suggests this photo is the only thing that separates him from any other wildlife photographer who runs workshops to make a living. -- Colin (talk) 08:16, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment Maybe, maybe not, who knows for sure. In any case I don't want commons to turn into a platform that pinches material from creators who don't consent or share their work voluntarily under a cc license. That's the main reasoning behind my opposing vote. The image actually might even warrant an FP status. It's striking, popular, well known & well done. --Martin Falbisoner (talk) 12:18, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Agree with not pinching material, but the raison d'être for this image is that the ape is the "creator" and it was a wild chance encounter rather than a trained animal. If David had creative input into the work, then it isn't a "monkey selfie", and no different to any other (of many) photos of these apes grinning. But if the ape is the creator then they don't get copyright. Neither do US Gov employees, whether they consent voluntarily or not. I don't think David can have it both ways. I think it quite rational to oppose for the reasons you give. -- Colin (talk) 12:55, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  • This is a striking image yes, but not the work of the owner of the camera. Otherwise you can claim to be the artist when someone just borrows your material, after publishing their shots in newspapers. Is that "your work" ? No. You just bought the camera, and expect to become millionnaire because someone talented pushed the button. In this case, the talented subject is a monkey, and legally there's no ownership for this species (fortunately or unfortunately, but in any case the owner of the camera would not be the artist). So, for now, this picture is like the work of someone who took a shot of the Mona Lisa in the Louvre Museum and claims to be the owner of the work. We just say "This painting is in the public domain", that's not "yours", it belongs to Da Vinci. But you engage lawyers and absolutely want to sell your photo of the Mona Lisa. Well, sorry that's your problem, there are laws. And now if you can't pay the attorneys, you're a bit responsible too. Maybe you can expect recognition for your work (go visiting the macaques in Indonesia), but only the fair part, not the extra part (means not this lucky selfie). That is public domain. Your story and the camera belong to you, you were not forced to publish anything, now the picture belongs to everyone -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:41, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
  • I don't think your comparison with photographing a PD artwork is valid. Copyright law is what it is, there is no logic to it, and the law is pretty settled in the US at least. The thing is, if David had set his camera up with an intervalometer to take a pic every few seconds, or had rigged a trigger trap to detect an ape walking by, or had remotely triggered the shutter when the ape pulled a funny face, he'd have full copyright of the image, but it would not have gone viral: it wouldn't be a "selfie". That's the claim he's chosen to make, and if you take him at his word that the ape took the photo, then he loses rights to the image. If instead, he engineered the photo, then his claim is a fraud, and he'd still not be entitled to his £10,000. -- Colin (talk) 15:06, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

It is hardly ever used and it is better that users are very clear in their votes.

  •   Neutral Compositionally it grows on you, but while I'm OK with the tree at left, the unsharp forest at right is a different matter. Also, do we need so much sky? See suggested crop. Daniel Case (talk) 14:59, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

  • I will support, too, once Franz van Duns specifies the make and model of the turntable, or at least the tonearm (and the stylus if it's a different brand). I think that's relevant if anyone wants to use such a great closeup of a tonearm and stylus in a reference article. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:44, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Info My, I'm flabbergasted! A nomination as featured candidate just 10+ months after joining Wiki Commons. Yes, of course, I will provide all the requested information in due time. First of all, it is a Technics SL-120 turntable, purchased by a friend's father in the late 1970-ies. Second: the pick-up cartridge is a Shure V-15 type III Stereo Dynetic Phonograph Cartridge (now corrected), and together with the record player and a stash of exquisitely preserved classical records I also acquired a spare cartridge in an elegantly fashioned box. Third: I'll also try to find out the brand of the J-shaped tonearm. Finally: of course, I could easily remove the tiny dark triangle at lower right, or even make a fully sharp image of the currently blurred white knobs in the foreground by including a vastly greater number of images in the focus stack, but after having given thought to this matter (and others) I decided proactively to preserve these features. Why? When viewed at full resolution these supposedly distracting "kinks" just vanish in my eye. But, as King of Hearts noticed, it is not alone in my eye, but in the wiki user's to decide what is agreeable and appropriate at standard wiki viewing sizes. Phew, it is very late now in Germany - I'll muse over this matter tomorrow. Great thanks for your support!

  • Thanks, Franz, and welcome to FPC! Please sign your post (type 4 tildes [~] in a row), and also, please add the information about the turntable, tonearm and stylus to the file description on the file page. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:35, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Request Franz, per above, the make and model should get included on the file page, and also any major manipulations or double exposures should be mentioned. The image shows two tonearms, it should be made clear that the real thing only has one (if that's the case). – Lucas 07:53, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Info It was getting really, really late and I made a few mistakes and omissions which I shall now correct. This "double-headed" image was explicitly created by me as a tongue-in-cheek entry for the somewhat whimsical Wiki Commons Photo challenge/2019 - April - Beginning and end, thus the contorted title "Groove and needle in close embrace from beginning to end" and the deliberately almost poetical description text related to the stylus' movement from, well, beginning to end. As conspicuously noted in a frame below the summary box on the image page it is composed as a focus stack of 20 images (to be precise I took two focus stacks, one with the cartridge on the left and the other after carefully having lifted the cartridge to the right. These two stacks were subsequently merged). Focus stacking is mandatory to achieve a great depth of detail in macroscopic regions, but also works just as well for larger objects. When I participated in the above mentioned competition last month I assumed that the concise information I had provided would suffice for that purpose. I now see a certain conflict concerning the demands for (a) a contest entry versus (b) an unexpected nomination for featured picture status. For this reason I will momentarily refrain from altering the image during the current voting period, given that I have already been awarded 2 stars for exactly this version and will not replace it by one of the two focus stacks it is based on, but, as Lucas suggests, I will duly add some extra facts to the text. By the way, the pick-up arm is a SME model 3009 series II improved. Thanx for all your comments. I am willing to learn from you all, as a community. Franz van Duns (talk) 09:55, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Franz van Duns, per Ikan's and Lucas' comments above, could you please add the technical info, as well as the part about the double exposure, you have given us here to the |description= part of the file info on the file's page. This page will be archived in 9 days and the info needs to accompany the file for all users to see in a convenient way. Thank you. --Cart (talk) 10:48, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Done. The file description should now adequately reflect the technical background both of the depicted object and the major steps entailed towards the final image. Franz van Duns (talk) 11:52, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
