  •   Comment Poco, your oppose is just as invalid as one without any reason as you are not critiquing the photo itself. An {{Abstain}} is the better option for you and anyone with a similar view. – Lucas 18:30, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Ok, not problem, in that case: the facial expression is unpleasant --Poco2 19:23, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose The picture frame is encroaching on him too closely and the decorative multi-color string on the flag is too distracting. Also something feels weird about how his chest gets more in shadow/darker further down. Size is quite small and noise levels too high for a studio shot. – Lucas 18:37, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose -- Distorted perspective, as indicated by the picture frame to the right of the photographer. Fluffy89502 ~ talk^ 18:40, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Weak support Sharp and overall a good portrait, but the resolution isn't great. I think it clears the bar overall, but it might do better at FP on Wikipedia where encyclopaedic value is prized somewhat more than on Commons. Cmao20 (talk) 19:40, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose As presidential portraits go, this is rather bleak and uninteresting. Ok, we were spoiled with good photos during the Obama administration, but still... It lacks depth and the background is distracting (he is standing too close to the wall), including a cord that makes him look like a jumping jack. --Cart (talk) 20:23, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose He looks strange - this is not his face as we usually see it. --Uoaei1 (talk) 08:14, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Agreed with Uoaei1, this is probably how Trump wants to be seen (ie encclopedic value at most), not how he is most of the time. -- KennyOMG (talk) 08:26, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment Distracting background with the picture frame and the ugly wall paper. The overall image seems to be a bit underexposed and oversharpened which brings the noise to a visible and disturbing level. --Granada (talk) 08:39, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose At first sight it's just a pretty boring portrait that just doesn't manage to stick out among the gazillions of pictures of US-government people in front of US flags we have here at commons. That alone would be reason to oppose. If you actually start to analyze it … well, when it was released PetaPixel and Jared "Fro" Polin (among others) already did that job so let's just say they did not think it was a "good" portrait. --El Grafo (talk) 08:51, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Neither a great quality nor representative. Sorry --A.Savin 10:19, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per Granada and El Grafo. The photographer, Shealah Craighead, is a professional, so I assume she knows how to do a high-quality portrait. This one gives the impression he just said, "Look, I'll just stand here. You can take this dumb "official portrait" you keep going on about right now... I don't care if you don't have any of your "lighting kit" with you. My guys take great photos with just their cell phones. Your camera must be really dumb if it needs lighting kit to take a good photo." -- Colin (talk) 13:56, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Hmm... I'm not so sure, although I could well imagine him saying something like that. She may be working as a photographer, but professional (I mean as in "highly skilled")?? Have you looked at her other work? It's all bad angles, strange crops and photos in existing light. Looks like the best US photographers are democrats. ;-) --Cart (talk) 16:37, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • „working as a photographer, but professional?“: that is the definition of professional. – Lucas 17:29, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • To my knowledge there can be a difference in the English language between "working as" and "being a pro" in everyday parlance. It is similar to the ranking system we have here on Commons. On your user page you have the userbox stating "This user is able to take professional quality photographs." In that sense the word "professional" is used for quality level rather than occupation. "Being a pro" can simply mean that s(he) knows what s(he) is doing. --Cart (talk) 18:11, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Yes there are many meanings to "professional", though with photography I think it is mainly used to distinguish from "amateur" in the sense of making money, earning a living at it. I would expect a professional to be able to reliably deliver acceptable quality to time/budget, and that the more you pay the higher the expectations. Another mark of a professional is to take and absorb a whole lot of grief from the client, and to deliver what the client wants, rather than to their own taste. Given the number of "great, highly talented" people he's hired and then fired, she must be doing something right to still have a job. -- Colin (talk) 19:13, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • I have amended my comment to clarify what I mean. I think most people got it but precise meaning is obviously imperative here in such an important discussion. --Cart (talk) 19:28, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Someone once said "Explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog. You understand it better but the frog dies in the process." I got your point and the word-play. -- Colin (talk) 20:42, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Neutral I think part of the air needs to be cut off. To balance the photo.--Famberhorst (talk) 16:03, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Weak oppose It clearly needs a perspective correction and although the lighting is good there is too much sky on the top, it would definitively benefit from a crop to achieve better symmetry with the lower portion.

  • Cmao20: Thanks. This is the original size, uncropped. I have one more cropped so the bird is like 40 % of the frame but I decided to use this one on Wiki precisely because of the habitat/environment around and keep the informative value. Otherwise, I like the crop better, esthetically. -- Jakub Fryš (talk) 22:19, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support Great capture of a bird in its natural environment. The sandpiper is quite small but the resolution and the quality are very good. I'd probably prefer to crop a bit from the bottom and even more from the top to place the bird in the middle - but it's good as it is anyway :) --Podzemnik (talk) 20:03, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

  • I agree, the close foreground is out of focus, but imo cropping it off would spoil the composition --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 17:23, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Strong oppose You used bad frames. There are blurry areas due to camera shake (visible directional blur with line doubling where the camera came to rest) with sudden transitions to areas that are sharp. See my note of the most obvious area, but there are more blurry areas around that. The bottom right area is very close to the camera but rendered sharp, your focus was set right. – Lucas 18:58, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose Most of the time, I love your photos! But I don't think that it's going to work out this time. The scene is nice but the bottom frame on the left is too unsharp. I tried to play with different crop and magnification but I can't see the way how to save the image. --Podzemnik (talk) 21:46, 16 June 2019 (UTC)


 
Thank you for nominating this image.

  • I for myself have a rather low tolerance for overdone saturation, normally I take the green of the grass and/or the blue of the sky as reference and reduce the level. But whereas it is easy to reduce the whole saturation or chosen channels at any time afterwards, you cannot add much more light to your picture when you have taken it in weak light, and the beauty of Heligoland cliffs (including the colours) is only seen entirely when it is sufficiently lit. Anyone who juxtapose both picture see the difference immediately. Your picture may be correctly saturated, but the colours that I would like to see are definitely lost there. --A.Savin 13:35, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Comment - Yeah, I like his happy, youthful appearance, though I agree with Cart, especially on the composition. But how historically important is this particular portrait? It seems to be the best one we've got on Commons, and he's obviously an exceedingly important historical figure.

    • I would say it is unique and unmatched in EV. Gagarin's face was scarred when he fell jumping off a balcony while escaping from his wife who had caught him cheating in September 1961. In case you are not aware, he became the first human in space in April 1961. So this is the only photo likely to be available of how he looked pre-incident and best representation of his appearance while he was on his historic first mission to space. It may also be the best/only clear portrait of him we have in general because he died in 1968. I do not know how to clean up the scratches around his chin. If any one is good at that I would welcome it. Coffeeandcrumbs (talk) 20:42, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose per Lucasbosch, as this particular image doesn't appear to be that significant (he was the subject of lots of pictures, and this one doesn't stand out), and it's got the problems mentioned above. And I agree on en:WP:FP: "unmatched in EV" doesn't matter here as much as there.

  •   Comment - It's spectacular, but I don't understand why we are not asking for it to be de-noised before we support a feature. It's already problematic at 250% and slightly at 200% of my 13-inch laptop screen. And in this case, I don't think the size of the photo is an argument for a feature, because it looks bad at full size and we probably shouldn't be looking at it at that size. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:09, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment Ikan, FYI, zoom levels above 100 % usually denote zooming in further than the 1:1 pixel level, so picture pixels would actually get upscaled on your monitor. I'm sure you meant the opposite, being zoomed in a moderate amount, still above pixel level, approx. 50 % zoom or less. – LucasT 07:33, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Lucas, you didn't read my remark carefully. I'm talking about percentages of the size of my 13-inch laptop screen, not percentages of the huge size of the image. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:40, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Ikan, when you get noise at high ISO levels, de-noising will often ruin the photo. The de-noising programs can only merge and extrapolate the "missing" information so far. The result is often a smooth and plastic-looking photo since you lose all sharp edges and in most places the "noise grains" will bunch together and form artifacts instead. A photo like this will lose some of its crispness. Even a slight noise reduction would make it look over-processed or like taken with a cheap mobile. --Cart (talk) 08:43, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
  • That's a pity. Do you think there could have been a way to get a little more sharpness and less noise when the photo was taken? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:47, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
  • You could probably have taken it with that time and a lower ISO and added the light in post-processing; that would have made it less noisy but instead you would have lost bright colors and details in the ice. Or you could have sacrificed the DOF and made only the nearest ice sharp; that way you could do a less noisy photo. In some cases, everything is a compromise. --Cart (talk) 09:21, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
  • I see. Thanks for explaining. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:46, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Ikan and others, this is a version of the photo downsized to "normal"/acceptable size with a bit of noise reduction (you can do NR on a high ISO photo if you downsize it first). It is nicer to look at when opening at full size, BUT in the process a lot of information is now lost. It has gone from 19.05 MB to 4.08 MB. Isn't it better to have the full original version? --Cart (talk) 12:08, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
  • The original is much nicer to look at, the world has plenty of mushy noise-reduced images already. – Lucas 12:38, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Neutral Nice photo but somewhat overcooked. (1) Noise is not the issue here. Noise is the most overrated problem here on FPC ever. That said, I think at 38mm focal length an aperture of f/5.6 would have done it, too. Then it would have been possible to lower the ISO to 200 which would have reduced the noise significantly. However, it is always easy to critize such a photo sitting at home in front of your computer. On location you sometimes don't have the time to try different settings or you don't immediately see a flaw that can be seen on a computer screen. Additionally EXIF says that the exposure has been increased somewhat (+0.57) in postprocessing which may explain the amount of noise since the D800 IMO would normally not create so much noise at only ISO 800. (2) EXIF also says that the author increased clarity, vibrance and saturation which was for my taste somewhat too much, that's why I vote neutral here. --Code (talk) 07:04, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose Boring centered composition, distracting tree covering up a large part of the subject, bad depth perception due to the light direction, distracting tourists. Low pixel detail and humongous CAs in the lower right. – LucasT 15:24, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose It's a good photo on the whole, but the tree is a bit distracting, and I agree about the CAs. I think we can probably do a bit better for such a commonly photographed monument. Cmao20 (talk) 20:17, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Boring centered composition as Lucas notes, the tree is also fairly distracting IMO. --Boothsift 23:27, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Question - What other direction would be better for this motif than straight-on and centered? I'm confused by that criticism. I think that there are other factors at issue but not that. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:11, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose These are lovely but for FP of such a set there should have been at least a good attempt made to align the two images to each other, right know too much is changing position most noticeable on the sides. Sadly the focal lengths and dimensions are not uniform and the camera position was shifted vertically between the shots by a significant distance. These last two points are of lesser importance though. – LucasT 10:40, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support Overall, absolutely brilliant. Lucas is right that they could be aligned to each other a little bit better, but not enough to stop me supporting. Lovely, sharp, high-resolution photos of the castle from an excellent angle, and good to have a night and a day view.

  •   Comment - Quite an unusual image, but I'd feel happier if the sky were de-noised. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:39, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Weak oppose Interesting image but there are question-marks over the quality, especially the sky as Ikan points out but more generally there's a bit of colour noise. It also looks to me like there's a bit of barrel distortion, with the horizon visibly curving up at one end and down at the other. Cmao20 (talk) 10:43, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose A very nice composition but the quality is not enough for such a small photo. A GoPro camera is not ideal for FPs. And as the description says, it's a tourist destination so not that hard to get to for someone with a fairly good camera. (I've been there myself but that was pre the tree.) --Cart (talk) 21:54, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Info Ok, I gave the file some TLC and removed some of the color noise and corrected the barrel distortion a bit, not all the way though since the shore curves slightly. Please revert this if you don't like it. 'Pinging' voters about the change: Ikan Kekek, Cmao20, Boothsift, Lucasbosch and Poco. Myself I'm changing to   Neutral after this.

    Cart: Now that we're in the process to improve the image, don't you think that we should reduce the vignetting on the top left? I can give it a try if you like. Poco2 18:03, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Poco, I already did some vignetting adjustment in my edit, I think the gradient is due to natural light since it stayed after the correction and it follows the way the shadow of the tree points. I see such phenomena a lot in my photos taken on clear days over water. Let's leave it as it is now, I think it is acceptable. We should be as respectful as possible to the author. The dark sky matches the darker water on that side well. --Cart (talk) 18:52, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

It's not blown, something you can easily verify in any image editing program; the "noise" is called "grain". -- KennyOMG (talk) 20:24, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
OK, it looks blown to me, but as I pretty clearly indicated, it's a minor point. I won't be consulting photo editing programs for that kind of thing; I just use my eyes. And OK, grain. But do note that I supported, so I don't think either of those things are so important (and the grain was probably unavoidable). -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:47, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Comment What you say, pardon me, does not make sense. How can the tourists, several hundred meters away, be out of focus and the background be in focus with an aperture of f/11? --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 18:05, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Comment I don't think Lucas is imagining this, I can see it too. I think you have a heat haze area hanging over the nearer sunlit rocks on the left. It will do very strange things with your photos. Take a look at how distorted/blurry the houses on the right side in this photo are, while this photo taken from the same point of a location over four times as far away, but over the cooler sea, is not very affected. That day, the photos taken towards the sea were acceptable but I had to throw away all the photos taken inland of the town. I had gone there to make a panorama of the old town in Lysekil (to the right of the houses in the first photo and further inland), but they turned out beyond bad. --Cart (talk) 16:36, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Well, no, I was commenting on this photo (providing link for clarity). Perhaps you somehow misunderstood what I wrote. Lucas mentioned a "slightly blurry foreground with the tourists" and I provided a possible explanation for it using my own photos/experience as examples.

@Ikan Kekek: It is processed by original author in order to give highlight to the subject (airport terminal building) itself. The photo was taken in real color, and then processed into grey-scale in most area except the terminal building. David290 (talk) 06:42, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

There are 4 different horizontal planes - the rocks and nearest boat, the house and the other boat, the far bank and the hill in the far right corner, and then the clouds. And then there is the strong deep curve of the lake and the bit of land on the right that enables the eyes to come back into the foreground. It's really stronger and more interesting than most of the compositions we vote to feature here. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 16:11, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

  • The thing is also that this is in a fjord with huge cliffs in the east and west (think Death Star trench), so the sun only shines on this little place when the sunlight can enter the fjord from the south.

  •   Oppose I really like the colors and the composition is good, although the left crop is too tight. Sadly, the overal quality leaves too much to be desired as I'm considering this to be a studio shot. From the camera's 36 MPx this only got 11 MPx, either from cropping or downscaling, my guess is the former because the pixel detail is pretty weak. Diffraction softness at f/29 is also to blame. Too much of the foreground is not in focus, I would have solved this with a second shot and combined the two. – LucasT 09:24, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Abstain per the discussion at ANU and lack of apology and explanation from ArionEstar for his past behaviour. – LucasT 20:00, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Request Hello guys, I ask you to vote here because it will be my last nomination for the time being… I am going to stay a few months out of this community, I think it suits as an apology... So, bye and be happy! 😄 ArionEstar 😜 20:31, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment - An apology is "I apologize for doing x, understand why it was wrong and promise not to do it again because I will do a, b, and c to make sure I avoid it." Claiming you will stay away for a few months is (a) not credible right now and (b) in no way at all an apology. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:40, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
  • When you are silent, there is a consent. 😄 ArionEstar 😜 20:44, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment This response is suspiciously reactionary and should have come way sooner to have any credibility. Per Ikan this is not an apology. You are just trying to weasel yourself away from consequences, act only if other people call you out, as always. I'm sick of this and will not engage any further. – LucasT 20:57, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Fjernelse af fremragende-statusEdit

Nogle gange hænder det at statussen for fremragende billeder ændres. Billeder som tidligere var god nok, vil ikke længere blive anset som det. Her listes billeder som du ikke længere synes fortjener at være det. Da trænges to tredels majoritet (og mindst fem stemmer) som er enig i at fjerne statussen fra billedet. Eftersom ikke to tredele af stemmerne er enig i at fjerne statussen, bliver den beholdt. Her stemmer man med {{keep}} (behold billedet som fremragende) eller {{delist}} (billedet fortjener ikke længere at være fremragende). Når du nominerer et billede her, tag med linket til den oprindelige nomination (den findes under Links på billedtes beskrivelsesside. Brug dette link for at lægge til en fjerningskandidat.

  •   Comment - This looks really great at full-page size on my 13-inch laptop, but when I look at the file at larger sizes, I see what looks like one or more bad frames. I've marked their approximate location. It's striking because the buildings in the town look good but the greenhouses or areas of farm with tarpaulins over them to the right of the town look intensely blurry. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 12:16, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
    •   Done You are right, some frames were not sharp. Fortunately I had made another Panorama from the same place which is sharp. I replaced the unsharp version by this second panorama --Llez (talk) 18:57, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

  •   Info This is a view of the interior (upper floors) of the San Francisco Columbarium. Since 1898, the building serves as a repository for human ashes, stored in niches along the walls. I first visited the building seven years ago, after stumbling upon a newspaper article describing Meet your neighbors-for-eternity parties. As I only had an iPhone at hand in 2012, I felt it was worth the time and effort to reshoot this place with my current gear. c/u/n by Frank Schulenburg.

  •   Comment Poco, your oppose is just as invalid as one without any reason as you are not critiquing the photo itself. An {{Abstain}} is the better option for you and anyone with a similar view. – Lucas 18:30, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Ok, not problem, in that case: the facial expression is unpleasant --Poco2 19:23, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose The picture frame is encroaching on him too closely and the decorative multi-color string on the flag is too distracting. Also something feels weird about how his chest gets more in shadow/darker further down. Size is quite small and noise levels too high for a studio shot. – Lucas 18:37, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose -- Distorted perspective, as indicated by the picture frame to the right of the photographer. Fluffy89502 ~ talk^ 18:40, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Weak support Sharp and overall a good portrait, but the resolution isn't great. I think it clears the bar overall, but it might do better at FP on Wikipedia where encyclopaedic value is prized somewhat more than on Commons. Cmao20 (talk) 19:40, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose As presidential portraits go, this is rather bleak and uninteresting. Ok, we were spoiled with good photos during the Obama administration, but still... It lacks depth and the background is distracting (he is standing too close to the wall), including a cord that makes him look like a jumping jack. --Cart (talk) 20:23, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose He looks strange - this is not his face as we usually see it. --Uoaei1 (talk) 08:14, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Agreed with Uoaei1, this is probably how Trump wants to be seen (ie encclopedic value at most), not how he is most of the time. -- KennyOMG (talk) 08:26, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment Distracting background with the picture frame and the ugly wall paper. The overall image seems to be a bit underexposed and oversharpened which brings the noise to a visible and disturbing level. --Granada (talk) 08:39, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose At first sight it's just a pretty boring portrait that just doesn't manage to stick out among the gazillions of pictures of US-government people in front of US flags we have here at commons. That alone would be reason to oppose. If you actually start to analyze it … well, when it was released PetaPixel and Jared "Fro" Polin (among others) already did that job so let's just say they did not think it was a "good" portrait. --El Grafo (talk) 08:51, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Neither a great quality nor representative. Sorry --A.Savin 10:19, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per Granada and El Grafo. The photographer, Shealah Craighead, is a professional, so I assume she knows how to do a high-quality portrait. This one gives the impression he just said, "Look, I'll just stand here. You can take this dumb "official portrait" you keep going on about right now... I don't care if you don't have any of your "lighting kit" with you. My guys take great photos with just their cell phones. Your camera must be really dumb if it needs lighting kit to take a good photo." -- Colin (talk) 13:56, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Hmm... I'm not so sure, although I could well imagine him saying something like that. She may be working as a photographer, but professional (I mean as in "highly skilled")?? Have you looked at her other work? It's all bad angles, strange crops and photos in existing light. Looks like the best US photographers are democrats. ;-) --Cart (talk) 16:37, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • „working as a photographer, but professional?“: that is the definition of professional. – Lucas 17:29, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • To my knowledge there can be a difference in the English language between "working as" and "being a pro" in everyday parlance. It is similar to the ranking system we have here on Commons. On your user page you have the userbox stating "This user is able to take professional quality photographs." In that sense the word "professional" is used for quality level rather than occupation. "Being a pro" can simply mean that s(he) knows what s(he) is doing. --Cart (talk) 18:11, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Yes there are many meanings to "professional", though with photography I think it is mainly used to distinguish from "amateur" in the sense of making money, earning a living at it. I would expect a professional to be able to reliably deliver acceptable quality to time/budget, and that the more you pay the higher the expectations. Another mark of a professional is to take and absorb a whole lot of grief from the client, and to deliver what the client wants, rather than to their own taste. Given the number of "great, highly talented" people he's hired and then fired, she must be doing something right to still have a job. -- Colin (talk) 19:13, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • I have amended my comment to clarify what I mean. I think most people got it but precise meaning is obviously imperative here in such an important discussion. --Cart (talk) 19:28, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Someone once said "Explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog. You understand it better but the frog dies in the process." I got your point and the word-play. -- Colin (talk) 20:42, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
