  • Bidrag ifrån oinloggade bidragsgivare till diskussionen är välkomna
  • Röstning från oinloggade bidragsgivare räknas inte
  • En nominering räknas inte som en röst, men den som nominerar får rösta

En kandidat kommer att bli en utvald bild om följande krav uppfylls:

  • Lämplig licens (så klart)
  • Minst 5 stödjande röster
  • Förhållande mellan stödjande/motsättande röster på minst 2/1 (minst två tredjedels majoritet)

    • If that very interesting means reflection and symmetry, I've realized before your comment and guess others are same... --Laitche (talk) 10:34, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, I couldn't shut my mouth called a critic. --Laitche (talk) 10:45, 24 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)

    • This is a very high resolution photo, with more than 22Mp. In my opinion the stones of granite are as sharp as they can be. Any further sharpening would cause undesired artifacts. Alvesgaspar (talk) 15:50, 23 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.

Voting to promote it to FP status just as the (human) photographer has said in yesterday's edition of Amateur Photographer that he is ‘working to pursue infringers in the UK’ feels too much like an unethical exercise in photographer-baiting. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 13:49, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
    • 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.

      • 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.

But to give you an idea, from how I image I can tell you (and anyone else interested) now that the pixel size would be 40±3nm so the whole image would be ~163x163(±12.5)um and I know that the thinnest filaments that you can make out would be 140±30nm, which is about the limit of achievable resolution on a light microscope.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I like the idea and the subject, but I'm not fully convinced by the composition - it's quite busy. 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)

--Tuxyso (talk) 20:45, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Normally, I'd recommend the JavaScript or Flash zoom viewers but they seem to be broken at present (for me, anyway). I don't think it is reasonable to expect a browser to display an image that would be 5.4m wide at 100dpi. It is a lousy way to view such an image. The zoom viewers provide a better experience. Please don't judge our images on the limitations of MediaWiki or your decision to use a web browser to review the 100% image. You wouldn't use a web browser to read a book.

The small stairs coming from the left and right at the bottom of the frame look like they would meet at a right angle at the place the camera was standing. From GoogleEarth I can see that they actually are one straight line. This is of course perfectly normal for shots like this, but can be misleading for people unfamiliar with wide panoramas.

        • Symbol support vote.svg Support I have to agree with Mile in their observation. It appears to be a local geometrical distortion in the clock region. Does Hugin have the possibility to add horizontal control points? That is how I would control that myself (using PTGui). If you are a real perfectionist you will probably fix thatSmile. On the other hand, it is really a minor detail (I did not spot it myself after scrutiny until I read Miles comment), and overall it is a splendid piece of work. It is clear for me that you have been very careful in the entire process from the capture to the processing. -- Slaunger (talk) 20:41, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
          • It took me very long to figure out if it is improvable by horizontal control points. It is, but only one horizontal line at the area around the clock is vertical in real. The difference is, according to Slaunger, subtle because only one line at the area around the clock is really straight. I will upload a new version tomorrow (already too late at least in Germany). --Tuxyso (talk) 22:01, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

    • Daniel Case, have you really considered the effect of moving forward? A little further forward and there's a great big statue dominating your vision and obscuring the building, and the trees probably aren't completely out of the frame. Go in front of the statue and you'd struggle to fit the building in-frame or achieve a reasonable rectilinear image, and the two other trees would start to dominate. -- Colin (talk) 11:38, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
      • I fully agree with Colin. I can offer other perspectives ([2], [3]), but believe me moving forward was not an option. Btw, I have uploaded a new version with an improvement of the perspective. Poco2 19:09, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
I actually like those other two a little bit more, if you'd been able to get the treetops in. It's really a matter of taste. Sometimes the perfect angle you'd like is just impossible. Daniel Case (talk) 19:27, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
Very much so. Many buildings (particularly in London) don't give you the ability to step back and photograph from an ideal angle, you typically end up with light poles, street signs, awkward angles and lots of perspective distortion. It is a matter of taste but I don't think Poco's alternative images show the building better. This one seems to be the least obstructed view of the building. Diliff (talk) 07:08, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Having the church different illuminations even at 100 ISO is created a bit of noise which must be reduced in PP. However before you oppose to one thing and then you come out the other, better let it go that is better, thanks anyway --LivioAndronico talk 14:32, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

  • There can be many reasons why it has NR at ISO 100. Livio may have increased the shadows brightness which would introduce noise even at ISO 100. It is a scene with a lot of dynamic range, and it is probably as good as it can be with a single exposure. Nothing could have saved the white window, cameras simply don't have enough dynamic range capabilities in their sensors to capture bright sunlight detail at the same time as a dark interior detail. Diliff (talk) 15:10, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
  • I've considered the technical limit of single exposure by 24Mpx with APS-C, and I think this shot is insufficient luminous at this scene + this sensor for a FP bar. And after I read your comment of supporting vote, I think it's not good thing that an adjustment the FP standard by each individual, but it's OK for now. --Laitche (talk) 16:20, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
  • I haven't adjust the FP standard for each individual - that's an assumption you've made. I've opposed many of Livio's church interiors before. I simply wanted to point out that he has improved his photography (composition, processing, and overall image sharpness) and this image has reached the minimum standard for me to support it.

  • I was more asking how you import the photo in your computer. How exactly do you open it? Photoshop? ACR? Lightroom? Something else? How is it saved at the end? Can you check ur exif at each stage of your workflow to find out the faulty link? - Benh (talk) 06:44, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

I suggest you to keep on working in your photographic skills, development and -if possible- equipment and go back to this place in one year, and then ask us to replace this FP by an even better one.

Shadows are much harsher and skies are much more blue. The effect seems extreme in this picture, so I'd guess a polarizer was used to exaggerate it even more – which would make the very dark sky a creative choice of the photographer rather than an error. You are of course free to like that or not, but I'd like to encourage everyone to have a quick look at the section High-Altitude Blue of Michael Freeman's Capturing Light (Google Books link) before dismissing this as underexposed. --El Grafo (talk) 11:23, 17 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 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)

  • 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)

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.

Voting to promote it to FP status just as the (human) photographer has said in yesterday's edition of Amateur Photographer that he is ‘working to pursue infringers in the UK’ feels too much like an unethical exercise in photographer-baiting. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 13:49, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
    • 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.

    @El Grafo: I will look for the raw data to make an exact scalebar and reupload. But to give you an idea, from how I image I can tell you (and anyone else interested) now that the pixel size would be 40±3nm so the whole image would be ~163x163(±12.5)um and I know that the thinnest filaments that you can make out would be 140±30nm, which is about the limit of achievable resolution on a light microscope.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I like the idea and the subject, but I'm not fully convinced by the composition - it's quite busy. 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)
