Cette page recense les images qui sont proposées pour être affichées dans les Images remarquables. Notez qu'il ne s'agit pas de la même chose que l'image du jour ou que les images de qualité.

Les archives des votes précédents se trouvent sur cette page.

Il existe également une liste chronologique des images remarquables.

ProcédureEdit

Conseils avant de proposer une imageEdit

partie en cours de traduction depuis la version anglaise, votre avis est le bienvenu.
Lisez entièrement le guide avant de commencer
Quelques règles informelles à retenir avant de proposer une image (les termes en italiques sont la traduction anglaise des termes).

  • Définition (display resolution) : les images de Commons peuvent être utilisées sur d'autres supports qu'un écran d'ordinateur, par exemple pour être imprimées ou vues à très haute résolution. Il est important que les images proposées aient la plus haute résolution possible. Au moins 2 millions de pixels (par ex. 2000 x 1000) semble raisonnable à présent. Les images de définition inférieure sont systématiquement rejetées sauf s'il y a une bonne raison.
  • Mise au point (focus) : tous les objets importants de l'image devraient être nets. Dans l'idéal les objets non primordiaux sont nets.
  • Avant-plan et arrière-plan (background and foreground): ils peuvent être dérangeants. Le sujet principal ne devrait pas être caché par le premier plan, ni se confondre avec l'arrière-plan.
  • Qualité générale (general quality) : Les images proposées devraient avoir une très haute qualité technique.
  • Une retouche (digital manipulations) ne doit pas tromper l'observateur. La correction de quelques défauts dans l'image est acceptée pour autant que ce soit limité, bien fait, et non pour tromper. Les retouches courantes sont le recadrage, la correction de la perspective, de netteté, des couleurs ou de l'exposition. Des manipulations plus importantes, tels quel l'élimination d'éléments dans l'arrière plan, doivent être décrites dans la description de l'image, par le biais du modèle {{RetouchedPicture}}. Les retouches non décrites ou mal décrites qui transformeraient le sujet sont inacceptables.
  • Utilité (value) : notre but principal est de présenter des images utiles et précieuses. Les images devraient ainsi être spéciales d'une façon ou d'une autre, donc, entre autres :
    • La plupart des coucher de soleil sont beaux, et la plupart ne sont pas différents des autres existant déjà.
    • Les photos de nuit sont souvent belles mais davantage de détails sont visibles de jour.
    • "Beau" ne veut pas dire "utile".

Au niveau technique, nous avons l'exposition, la composition, le mouvement et la profondeur du champ.

  • L'exposition (exposure) est l'obturation du diaphragme qui modifie la luminosité (brightness) pour rendre avec qualité les ombres et les lumières au sein de l'image. Le manque d'ombres dans le détail n'est pas nécessairement négatif, cela peut être un effet désiré.
  • La composition (composition) est l'arrangement des éléments dans l'image. La "Règle de trois" est un bon guide pour la composition, c'est un héritage des écoles de peintures. L'idée est de diviser l'image par deux lignes horizontales et deux lignes verticales, nous avons donc trois parties dans chaque sens. L'objet ne doit pas forcément être centré. Les sujets intéressants doivent êtres placés aux 4 croisements des lignes. L'horizon ne doit jamais être mis au milieu, car il couperait l'image en deux. L'idée principale ici est de rendre l'image dynamique.
  • Netteté (sharpness) renvoie à la manière dont les mouvements sont représentés dans l'image. Ils peuvent être nets ou flous. Ils ne sont pas mieux l'un que l'autre, cela dépend de l'intention du photographe. L'impression de mouvement dépend des différents objets de l'image. Par exemple, photographier une voiture de course qui apparaît nette par rapport à l'arrière plan ne donne pas une idée de la vitesse. Il faudrait en fait que la voiture soit représentée nette, mais avec un arrière plan flou, créant ainsi le mouvement. D'un autre coté, représenter le saut d'un joueur de basket net avec le reste de l'image flou, en raison de la nature peu habituelle de la photo, lui conférerait de l'intérêt.
  • La profondeur de champ (depth of field or DOF) renvoie à la zone de mise au point devant et au delà du sujet principal. La profondeur de champ est choisie en fonction des besoins spécifiques à chaque image. Une profondeur grande ou petite peu améliorer ou dégrader la qualité de l'image. Une faible profondeur de champ peu attirer l'attention sur le sujet principal, en le séparant de son environnement. Le lentilles à petite distance focale (grand angle) ont une grande profondeur de champ, et vice versa, les lentilles à grande distance focale (petite ouverture) ont une petite profondeur de champ.

RèglesEdit

Règles généralesEdit

  1. Le résultat est donné 9 jours après la proposition (voir le planning en bas de page). Les votes ajoutés le 10e jour ou après ne sont pas décomptés.
  2. Les utilisateurs non-enregistrés peuvent proposer des images, faire des commentaires, mais pas voter.
  3. La proposition elle-même ne compte pas comme un vote : il faut l'ajouter explicitement.
  4. Le proposant peut retirer une image à tout moment, en écrivant : {{withdraw}} ~~~~
  5. Souvenez-vous que le but de Wikimedia Commons est une bibliothèque pour tous les projets Wikimedia, y compris des projets futurs ; les images n'ont pas à être utiles uniquement pour Wikipédia.
  6. Les images peuvent être retirées de la liste dès le 5e jour si elles n'ont reçu aucun vote "pour".
  7. Soyez attentifs et très sélectifs dans les choix que vous faites, car il ne peut y avoir que deux propositions actives par proposant. Toute proposition supplémentaire sera rejetée sans examen.
  8. Seulement 2 nominations actives par même utilisateur (qui est, en nomination sous "review" et non encore close) sont autorisées. Le principal but de cette mesure est de contribuer à une meilleure qualité moyenne des nominations, par un choix plus judicieux des photos présentes en nominations.

Règles de promotionEdit

L'image candidate devient une image remarquable si elle remplit les conditions suivantes :

  1. Une licence appropriée (bien sûr !)
  2. Au moins sept votes "pour".
  3. un ratio de 2/1 de votes "pour"/"contre".
  4. Deux versions différentes de la même image ne peuvent pas être promues en même temps, mais seulement celle avec le plus grand score.

ContestationsEdit

Avec le temps, les critères d'évaluation évoluent, et il peut être décidé qu'une image qui était auparavant assez bonne pour être dans la liste ne peut plus l'être.

Pour qu'une image soit déchue, il faut qu'une majorité de 2/3 avec au moins 5 votes accepte de retirer l'image, autrement elle reste "remarquable". Pour voter, utiliser les modèles {{Keep}} (  Keep : mérite de rester "remarquable") ou {{Delist}} (  Delist  : ne mérite plus le label).

Pour contester une image, copiez son nom avec le préfixe dans la boîte ci-dessous à la suite du texte déjà présent :


Vous devriez inclure les informations suivantes :

  •   Comment Thank you KennyOMG, but this isn't a new crop, it's a new image that I took one month later. It's almost the full image, so it can't be cropped towards the valley. --Basotxerri (talk) 17:09, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

  •   Info During the more than three centuries in which it was in active use, the cemetery continually struggled with the lack of space. Piety and respect for the deceased ancestors does not allow the Jews to abolish old graves. For this reason, twelve layers of graves now exist, giving the cemetery the shape of a flat hill. As new levels were added it was necessary either to lay over the gravestones associated with the older (and lower) graves to protect them, or else to elevate the stones to the new, higher surface. --Uoaei1 (talk) 10:15, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

  •   Comment Very delicate and nice light. My immediate impression was that is is a very busy and cluttered composition, but I guess that is the whole point as the grave stones are not that ordered due to the very high density of graves.

  •   Comment Agree with Basotxerri and even if the name of the file is very to the point and funny, it should be changed. Puns and jokes in file names are unfortunately not a part of FP names.

  •   Oppose The composition is too busy. I think with a telephoto, you're trying to isolate: either the subject is so far from the background that you can put it entirely out of focus, or you can zoom in on a single element in the background, undisturbed by anything else. What doesn't work for me here is the flattening of the perspective such that the background is just as prominent as the ship. -- King of ♠ 17:05, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
  •   Neutral Nice light, very crisp and detailed, eye-catching colors of the the vessel in the foreground. I find it funny that the typeface used for the "No Smoking" warning is comparable in size to the letters used for the ship name. But KOH has a point wrt to the composition and the clutter there is in it. Thus, I cannot fully support. -- Slaunger (talk) 19:50, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

  •   Info Lake Bracciano (Italian: Lago di Bracciano) is a lake of volcanic origin in the Italian region of Lazio, 32 km (20 mi) northwest of Rome. It is the second largest lake in the region (second only to Lake Bolsena) and one of the major lakes of Italy. It has a circular perimeter of approximately 32 km (20 mi). Its inflow is from precipitation runoff and percolation, and from underground springs, and its outflow is the Arrone.The lake owes its origin to intense volcanic activity from 600,000 to 40,000 years before present, which created many small volcanoes in the Sabatino territory. The main magma chamber was situated under the present lake of Bracciano. Its collapse created the caldera now occupied by the lake, which is a crater lake. Some small craters are still recognisable around the lake and in the immediate vicinity.The lake is an important tourist attraction situated near Rome. As it serves as a drinking water reservoir for the city of Rome it has been under control since 1986 in order to avoid pollution of its waters. The use of motorboats is strictly forbidden (exceptions being made for a few professional fisherman and the authorities), and a centralised sewer system has been built for all the bordering towns in order to avoid any spoiling of the water quality. This makes Bracciano one of the cleanest lakes of Italy. The absence of motorized navigation (apart from police boats) favours sailing, canoeing and swimming.In the last few years the lake and its surroundings have been brought under further protection by the creation of a regional park, the Parco Regionale del complesso lacuale di Bracciano Martignano.Under Pope Paul V, water was brought from Lake Bracciano to the Trastevere region of Rome and (via the Ponte Sisto) to the Rione of Regola.

  • File:Lizarraga - Saratsa - Paisaje 01.jpg is the black & white version, and I prefer that picture, not mainly because of the crop but mainly because the entire appearance makes more of an impact on me. I think part of my reaction is that the lighted white rocks are more emphasized in gray scale. Of course it's a tradeoff, because you sacrifice the greenery, but I'd support a substitution of the black & white picture in this nomination. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:39, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

  • Виктор Габышев, in case you are using Google Translate, "CAs" are "chromatic aberrations". As sunlight has many components, I'm not recognizing chromatic aberrations in the rays of sunlight on the ice, but there are many regulars here who have a much keener eye for chromatic aberration than I do. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:56, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
+1 to that. The CA is the purple/green kind, visible on the ice fragments near the bottom (Wow, I don't remember Ivvavik being this wintry-looking at the same latitude and almost the same time of year a year earlier!

    •   Info The romanesque nave of the Brunswick Cathedral was built between 1173 and 1226. After many additions over the centuries, the original paintings from the middle of the 13th century were rediscovered in 1845. As the conservators in these days felt free to complete missing parts in a historism way, not all the paintings are in their original status. A more detailed description you will find at Braunschweiger Dom Saecco-Malereien (germ.).
Further famous artefacts in this cathedral are a Seven-armed Candelabrum of 4,80m and the Imervard Cross, both from the second half of the 12th century.
The pictured painting in the crossing shows the celestial Jerusalem.
Nowadays there are intentions to place a second organ in the crossing. If this should happen, the days of seeing the full paintings of crossing and transept will be gone ... --PtrQs (talk) 23:36, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Take pictures in Venezuela protest in Venezuela was the more dangerous that I did in my life. At my side were friends who worked for the major news agencies with bulletproof vest and helmets with a marked green cross. I totally agree that these photos do not have the historical value that a photo in Venezuela at the moment, these protests outside of Venezuela are made around the world every day at the same time as part of international pressure to open a humanitarian channel and thus send medicine and food. BTW, this photo is on Paulista Avenue, the most important avenue in Brazil, there has been protesting for 50 days, it is possible without any danger in Brazil because it is a democratic country.

  • Pardon me for barging in here, but please don't crop. Even if some of the foreground is a bit unsharp, looking at the "bigger picture" there are several waves there that perfectly emulates the shapes of the mountains, but in dark colors not light. They create a counterpoint in the lower section of the image of what's going on in the upper part even if they are not as sharp as the rest.

  •   Info During the more than three centuries in which it was in active use, the cemetery continually struggled with the lack of space. Piety and respect for the deceased ancestors does not allow the Jews to abolish old graves. For this reason, twelve layers of graves now exist, giving the cemetery the shape of a flat hill. As new levels were added it was necessary either to lay over the gravestones associated with the older (and lower) graves to protect them, or else to elevate the stones to the new, higher surface. --Uoaei1 (talk) 10:15, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

I think with a telephoto, you're trying to isolate: either the subject is so far from the background that you can put it entirely out of focus, or you can zoom in on a single element in the background, undisturbed by anything else.

  •   Info Lake Bracciano (Italian: Lago di Bracciano) is a lake of volcanic origin in the Italian region of Lazio, 32 km (20 mi) northwest of Rome. It is the second largest lake in the region (second only to Lake Bolsena) and one of the major lakes of Italy. It has a circular perimeter of approximately 32 km (20 mi). Its inflow is from precipitation runoff and percolation, and from underground springs, and its outflow is the Arrone.The lake owes its origin to intense volcanic activity from 600,000 to 40,000 years before present, which created many small volcanoes in the Sabatino territory. The main magma chamber was situated under the present lake of Bracciano. Its collapse created the caldera now occupied by the lake, which is a crater lake. Some small craters are still recognisable around the lake and in the immediate vicinity.The lake is an important tourist attraction situated near Rome. As it serves as a drinking water reservoir for the city of Rome it has been under control since 1986 in order to avoid pollution of its waters. The use of motorboats is strictly forbidden (exceptions being made for a few professional fisherman and the authorities), and a centralised sewer system has been built for all the bordering towns in order to avoid any spoiling of the water quality. This makes Bracciano one of the cleanest lakes of Italy. The absence of motorized navigation (apart from police boats) favours sailing, canoeing and swimming.In the last few years the lake and its surroundings have been brought under further protection by the creation of a regional park, the Parco Regionale del complesso lacuale di Bracciano Martignano.Under Pope Paul V, water was brought from Lake Bracciano to the Trastevere region of Rome and (via the Ponte Sisto) to the Rione of Regola.

  •   Comment That's it, you're right: there have been two issues, the interesting clouds and the somewhat monotone foreground. You can have a look at the B&W version. Maybe you'd prefer that crop? --Basotxerri (talk) 18:42, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
  • File:Lizarraga - Saratsa - Paisaje 01.jpg is the black & white version, and I prefer that picture, not mainly because of the crop but mainly because the entire appearance makes more of an impact on me. I think part of my reaction is that the lighted white rocks are more emphasized in gray scale. Of course it's a tradeoff, because you sacrifice the greenery, but I'd support a substitution of the black & white picture in this nomination. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:39, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
  •   Comment I prefer the B&W version too but I wanted to nominate some colour image here (instead of mainly B&W pictures). These partially sun-lit beeches with its fresh green leaves are interesting, too. This image is well accepted here, so I won't change the nomination at this stage.

  • cart those fellas, rockers, got some gramm of powder, and Churchils V-victory become Peace symbol, today most favourited at Asians. While Pantokrator is showing blessing, 3 fingers - Trinity, together showing I-X (Isos Hristos, X is H in cyrlic). Hand gesture is turned to you, so gesture to you.

  • Виктор Габышев, in case you are using Google Translate, "CAs" are "chromatic aberrations".

+1 to that. The CA is the purple/green kind, visible on the ice fragments near the bottom (Wow, I don't remember Ivvavik being this wintry-looking at the same latitude and almost the same time of year a year earlier!

    •   Info The romanesque nave of the Brunswick Cathedral was built between 1173 and 1226. After many additions over the centuries, the original paintings from the middle of the 13th century were rediscovered in 1845. As the conservators in these days felt free to complete missing parts in a historism way, not all the paintings are in their original status. A more detailed description you will find at Braunschweiger Dom Saecco-Malereien (germ.).
Further famous artefacts in this cathedral are a Seven-armed Candelabrum of 4,80m and the Imervard Cross, both from the second half of the 12th century.
The pictured painting in the crossing shows the celestial Jerusalem.
Nowadays there are intentions to place a second organ in the crossing. If this should happen, the days of seeing the full paintings of crossing and transept will be gone ... --PtrQs (talk) 23:36, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
