Commons:Propositions d'images remarquables

Les règles des Propositions d'images remarquables ont changé.
Conformément aux règles générales, une image est promue avec 7 (sept) votes "support" ou plus (et un ratio de 2/1 de # supports/opposes) et le nombre de nominations actives par utilisateur est limité à 2 (deux)
Désormais, seuls peuvent voter les membres inscrits depuis plus de 10 jours ayant procédé à au moins 50 interventions dans "Commons"

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 I withdraw my nomination.
  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}} (Symbol keep vote.svg Keep : mérite de rester "remarquable") ou {{Delist}} (Symbol oppose vote.svg 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 :

  • Informations sur l'origine de l'image (créateur, importateur).
  • Un lien vers le vote d'origine.
  • La raison pour laquelle vous contestez le label, avec votre signature.

Insérez ensuite un lien en haut de Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal.

That wall (and especially gates) covers the church up a bit. I would prefer the main entrance view. Furthermore, that wire coming to one of the buildings looks ugly and distracting. The nature is dead due to winter. If these trees at the right side near the church would have leafs, I think it would contrast quite well with the pale church. Overall, the church is not special in any way for me - simple small town church. It doesn't have "WOW" in it. Nothing more than QP, sorry. -- Pofka (talk) 19:25, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

    • I disagree with your comment that it is at odds with military behaviour, and I think others who have been in the military would agree with me. It looks like it's been taken just outside a military base - probably Camp Bastion - and that the soldier is using the sight on his rifle to scan the horizon during a pause in the patrol. You can see that he is kneeling by the razor wire & grass outside a base. The metadata shows that it was taken just after sunset in Afghanistan. There the possibility that the photographer has taken time to set up the shot and asked the soldiers to stay where they are, but that's unlikely, and in any case that is not a reason to vote against it - it is a reason to vote for it, as it was clearly taken by a professional photographer out in the field. I also do not believe it is advertising any more than a 'good photo' of anything can be taken as advertising. It would be nonsense to suggest that we should only accept blurry or bloody photographs of warzones. Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 19:45, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral the photo is not localized. Is actually taken in Afghanistan? if not it's an advertising--PIERRE ANDRE LECLERCQ (talk) 16:00, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
    • Yes, it has been: see the caption: "Soldiers of C Company 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment are silhouetted against the setting sun during operations in Afghanistan in June 2014." If you search for the author's name you will see that he was based in Afghanistan for much of that year and took many other photographs which could only have been taken there. The metadata also matches the time of sunset in Afghanistan during 11 June 2014. Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 19:45, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

  • I don't use NR on 100iso,anyway just that you can oppose without explaining, you said always the same things. You can copy and paste is faster for you Clin --LivioAndronico talk 08:06, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • You're the one who took the picture, so you should explain. Did you take the picture in JPEG? RAW? If in camera JPEG, most in camera processing applies some degree of NR by default, even at ISO 100, but I can't check your settings for you. If RAW which setting did you use for demosaicing? - Benh (talk) 12:54, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I explain if someone asks and not taken for granted,I use only Raw and I don't know what's is "demosaicing" --LivioAndronico talk 17:45, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • If you use raw, whether or not NR is off is not a concern. Demosaicing is (in short) how to translate "raw" data from ur sensor to an image. Demosaicing itself doesn't exactly apply NR, but if you use LR for instance, there's a possibility to apply NR on the process. I don't take NR but the fact details are gone for granted. NR or blurring gives some signature, which I find on all your pictures, and which explains I repeat my reviews since you don't care to listen or give an explanation. - Benh (talk) 19:00, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I do not know what language to write, I can answer if someone asks! This way you do not understand it meaningless.--LivioAndronico talk 23:01, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Quite a long way below FP level. Quite considerable barrel distortion at the edge of the frame, which should be corrected by decent raw software like Lightroom. (Daniel, I don't think it is just the bottom of the buttresses, as it affects the paintings too and is a known problem with this lens at 18mm). The EXIF says you use Paint.Net. That's a tool for creating screenshots and drawing icons, not a proper photo tool. Do yourself a favour and buy Lightroom 6 when it comes out later this month, or subscribe the the Lightroom+Photoshop program for about £8 a month. I think one problem with sharpness is you used f/14. If this is the 18-105 lens then see this review for why f/14 will be soft overall compared to f/8 or faster. I don't understand your "I don't use NR on iso 100". All digital photos have noise reduction applied, it is simply a question of how much and how intelligently. -- Colin (talk) 13:29, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I use Photoshop CC and Paint.net just to cut, I turned off the NR on my Camera, this mean that I don't use it.--LivioAndronico talk 17:48, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • But if you use PS CC, you can (and should) easily correct distortion in Camera Raw, by ticking one box. Or am I misunderstanding something? --DXR (talk) 18:29, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I cannot believe you use Photoshop CC, one of the best image manipulation tools, and then run it through Paint.net, one of the worst, in order to crop it. Photoshop has a great crop tool. And if you save a JPG in one program and run it through another you will lose quality (not to mention that Paint.net loses most of the EXIF data). LivioAndronico, do you shoot raw or JPG? If raw then the NR setting on your camera is ignored. If JPG, then the "NR" setting you claim to have turned off is doing no such thing. Perhaps you've turned off "Long exposure NR" or some other variant. It is simply impossible to turn NR off completely. The image would be noisy and full of coloured splodges without it. -- Colin (talk) 20:01, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Colin If not you see my photos and see what is the program that I have used in the majority. However the photos always in RAW then converted to JPG.For the NR you can read this [1] --LivioAndronico talk 21:26, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • As I said, if you shoot raw then the NR setting on your camera has no effect. It only affects the amount of NR applied to the in-camera JPG (which you are not producing) and as the review notes, it still does apply some NR (just not as much). If you use Nikon raw converter then possibly the NR setting may give a hint to the raw converter as to what default amount of NR to apply when developing the raw file. But if you use Adobe Camera Raw with Photoshop CC (and you should as is is excellent) then this will be ignored. -- Colin (talk) 21:35, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

No on this I must admit that you are right, for convert in Jpeg I use the converter of nikon --LivioAndronico talk 22:00, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Ok. I would be interested to see how much you can improve it if you use Camera Raw. I'm puzzled why you use Photoshop or Paint.net for this image since Camera Raw should do all you need (including cropping). If you want a good book on Camera Raw, then buy The Digital Negative by Jeff Schewe. It won't fix the sharpness issues here (due to f/14) but should greatly improve your images vs what Nikon's converter can do. -- Colin (talk) 22:05, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

From Knossos, Crete, typical wall fresco of the Minoan civilization, the cretan Bronze Age (around 1600 BCE). It shows young athletes playing by jumping over a bull, with an enthusiastic spectator. The "sport spirit" existed 3500 years ago. This is the original, on display at the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion.

Views of Wieliczka Salt Mines by Willem Hondius
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info: This image is stitched from four views extracted from high-quality scans of a series of hand-colored copperplate maps of the town and salt mines of Wieliczka, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Poland's major tourist attractions. It provides a detailed depiction of the life and work of men and horses employed in salt mining in the 17th century. You can see miners carving away blocks of rock salt, horse mills powering water pumps and lifts, brine boiling on the surface, men praying in front of an underground altar (sculpted from rock salt), and even one fellow relieving himself against a wall.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose When I compare to File:Titan-crystal bar.JPG this one is a much weaker composition. There's useless space in the top left. The bars are longer than necessary to achieve their purpose illustrating the crystal bar. The magnification on each bar is thus so low I can't see any surface detail even at 100% (compared to other FP). In most scenarios where this image could be used (illustrating wiki or a book) the crystals would be too small to see in any quality. The only thing this photo offers that isn't offered by our existing FP is that there are two bars with different crystal structure, but this isn't explained.

AdobeRGB is really only good for sending an image directly to a professional printer or magazine, for everyone else it is very likely to result in many people seeing the wrong colours and an increased risk of banding in smooth colour gradients. -- Colin (talk) 12:57, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

    Benh: I have finetuned the luminosity of the shadowed areas and reduced the frindge. I haven't touched the saturation because I believe that the picture is pretty realistic and I have applied the standard configuration that I have been using for years. Btw, I think that this one is probably the most solid FP candidate I had, ever. That makes me sadly believe that I will always get your opposing votes. It is fine to challenge other FP-experienced photographers, but if this picture is not an FP then I got lost... Poco2 20:02, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
    A configuration doesn't work the same for all sources of picture. I still maintain the processing screwed up (a little) the otherwise great scene. Now for my voting scheme : you flood FPC with candidates and it doesn't appear to me that you apply a strict filtering before ur pic gets the candidate label (and ur very own "solid FP candidate" comment seems to confirm that). FPC has to be special, and I hope it remains so. Don't be surprised to get opposes from me as I'm the kind of demanding nitpicking guy (I try to remain "fair" though). As for why I oppose this one vs neutral the stair nom. which had issues as well, I consider they may have forbid you from getting ur tripod out which I consider a mitigating reason (but u didn't share), while a processing can be done again and again. No mitigating reason : much higher expectations. - Benh (talk) 08:39, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
    Benh:::I think that you misunderstood my comment. This picture is probably one of my best pictures, ever, and will stay as my desktop image for a while. You cannot expect that I nominate only those pictures that, I believe, are the best picture have ever I shot. In that case I'd show up here every 2 years at most. I have made some numbers and checked all FPCs initiated by me in Commons and checked the result of them: 162 out of 289 were successful (56% success rate). It may be poor for you, but I'm satisfied with that. You may call that flooding, that's a tough word. Flooding would be 2 nominations per day but there are rules, that I agree with, to avoid that. I see it from a different point of view, out of my last 5 nominations 0% were successful and that is not normal, and no, I don't think that I have lowered the bar for FPCs. Regarding your comment about "mitigating reasons", that surprised me, especially after your statement in a recent nomination saying "only the result counts". Finally, I'd like to remind you again that comments like "cheap", "trivial", "randomed" are out of place when you judge the work of others (not the case in this nominations, but in others). I find that kind of comments unrespectful and discouraging. You can be a nitpicking guy but stay respectful Poco2 14:17, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • I think what Benh meant is that if this is the best FP image you've ever taken (and was taken in August last year), why have you nominated so many inferior images recently? I know you probably have quite a large backlog of images that you haven't had time to process and upload and I can see this was uploaded just prior to nomination, but I think his point is still fair - it's probably better to nominate your best images as a priority. Anyway, of course it's your choice, but I have noticed that many of your nomination images have not been as consistently good recently. Diliff (talk) 14:57, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Come on Poco... yes the result counts. But I still do know when it's impossible to do otherwise (and I still don't know for the stairs, just out of curiosity).

Maybe you're right that the saturation is accurate (it does seem a bit too much for me though), but there are haloes around the cave where the sky begins. How is this processed? Is it an exposure blend, or did you recover shadows and highlights? In any case, I agree with you, the wow of the scene makes up for these technical deficiencies.

    • Actually Daniel, coincidentally I also visited the chapel and Painted Hall at Greenwich Hospital yesterday but unfortunately wasn't able to take any of the kind of quality photos you'd expect of me. The problem with visiting randomly is that you're at the mercy of whatever event is going on at the time - the chapel had choir singing practice for the entire afternoon until closure, taking over the front of one whole side aisle with quite a big group so although it was really beautiful singing, it wasn't really conducive to photography. I took a few photos of details such as this but nothing that I was happy with. The tonality was very different though, as the interior lighting was stronger and the light from outside was fairly dark and overcast. I won't link to any of my images of it here as I don't want to distract from your nomination but I'll post something on your talk page. And the Painted Hall was a bit busy with lots of volunteers buzzing around. I was specifically told not to use my tripod in there too, which is pretty much essential for high quality photography. I took a few hand-held panoramas to get an idea of what I could expect, but hand-held indoors usually results in stitching errors and mine were no exception so nothing I took was publishable on Commons. I'm hoping to visit another time and see if I have more luck with finding the two interiors a bit quieter. Apologies for spamming your nomination. ;-) Diliff (

It's pretty much like the "pont neuf" panorama, which I was in front of dozens of time, with all my gear set up and ready to fire up, but never thought it would render so nice.

              • The light often makes or breaks the photo Benh. Maybe it just wasn't lit up very nicely on the day you entered. There are plenty of churches in which the lighting just makes it very difficult to photograph well, such as this one.

Imho this is a somewhat confused argument. I'm fine with opposing due to wow or stuff like that but your reason is a bit odd. Firstly, the quality is perfectly fine, shot with a slightly older pro DSLR. NASA need to rely on what the camera manufacturers offer in the rugged and reliable class and at the end of the day such cameras don't have 36 or 50 MP as of now. Also the entire point is that the image is in space, the fact that I can shoot the house next door in higher resolution is totally irrelevant, isn't it? --DXR (talk) 17:53, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
My point is that we don't have to make every NASA photo FP just because it is taken in space. Zoom in the satellite. It is unsharp and some details are really poorly visible. I'm not telling that this picture is a crap, but I think the rules should be same for all and there shouldn't be exceptions just because they don't have better cameras up there. In my opinion, it should fit perfectly as valued image, not FP. -- Pofka (talk) 21:45, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
The space station might not be highly detailed but I definitely cannot see anything unsharp or blurred in it. As for the wow factor, that’s a thing we all see different of course. Objects or places unfamiliar to us bring a wow factor along that biases us into featuring the image while others shake their heads, as I did in this nomination (buy any issue of any flying magazine, and you’ll get dozens of perfectly sharp in-flight shots, so this kind of pictures is not unfamiliar to me, so the image in question hadn’t enough wow in my eyes to compensate for the blurred wing.) Others, having a different approach from a different experience, granted the image lots of wow to support. That’s why we have majority votes here. --Kreuzschnabel 07:29, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
The image is of similar quality to other featured space images. It's not just some space image, it's an image of an extremely significant event (completion of USOS, final Space Shuttle mission).--Craigboy (talk) 03:06, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --The technical quality of this shot is very nice. The lens is well sharp at 100% on the subject and the photograph hasn't been over-sharpened.

The only reason for this framing I can think of is that the lower part of the bust is even more badly lit than the upper.

  • You are right to say that it's washed out but note that it doesn't look that wrong to me since the sky over here is often weird—for example, I rarely can see the blue sky during the day, and thus even though there doesn't seem to be any clouds around. It's like if the sky was never clear and that the whole atmosphere was always misty. This tends to provide some interesting/strange ambiances during the golden hours. Note also that I'm referring to the skies that I know from Da Nang, and am not sure if it's also the case for where I took this photo as I didn't stay long over there. -- Christopher Crouzet (talk) 03:22, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
That being said, I have greatly lowered the highlights so it's also possible that it's washed out due to the post-processing :) -- Christopher Crouzet (talk) 03:28, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

    @Jan Arkesteijn, El Grafo - Perspective correction is in order, see the notes. --Jacek Halicki (talk) 13:02, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
    @Jacek Halicki: forcing straight verticals is not always a good idea. It only works if you have something like a reasonably flat wall. As soon as you have three-dimensional features that tell the beholder that the image was actually taken at an angle (here: upward), the whole idea of being able to "correct" a perspective falls apart. In this case, I'm looking at the underside of the tower's roof, while from the (apparent) perspective I would expect to be able to see much less of the underside – maybe even a bit of the upper side and the tip. Or in other words: Imagine the tower as a cylinder and the roof as a cone. Then the cone would not be lying flat on the top of the cylinder. Its vertical axis would be angled (to the back and a bit to the right at the top) relative to the cone's vertical axis. If not bolted into place, it would just slide off and fall to the ground. Sorry, but that just looks very wrong.
    Tuning down the "perspective correction" to allow the verticals of the tower to slightly converge at the top would probably take care of that problem. (Note that it's perfectly normal to have lines converging in the distance.) --El Grafo (talk) 14:43, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --Hubertl (talk) 16:44, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Jan Arkesteijn. Perspective straightening does not work on an extreme low-angle shot. So the tower appears to be viewed from the side while still showing the roof’s underside. This looks entirely askew. --Kreuzschnabel 18:30, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
    @Jan Arkesteijn, El Grafo, Kreuzschnabel - Look again. --Jacek Halicki (talk) 16:16, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment You have corrected the roof falling to the right, which indeed looks much better, but the main issue remains unresolved. You still have two different perspectives (camera positions) in one image. 1) one (true) perspective, where the camera is looking up under the roof. 2) one simulated perspective, where the camera is located further back and orientated horizontally, looking straight at the rest of the tower without looking up. That's why the roof still seems to slide off the tower (backwards, away from the camera). The only way to fix this is to step away from the illusion that one can change the perspective a picture of a 3D object like this was taken from in post processing and allow those verticals to converge at the top. --El Grafo (talk) 10:26, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Very interesting and indeed unusual. Good light and quality. I personally think the crop is a bit unbalanced, perhaps the tower at the left is relevant, but from a FP perspective it tends to pull my view from the main subject. I tried a 16:9 Crop on the tower itself and I think it is more powerful, but of course your choice. --DXR (talk) 17:26, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
    • I understand your comment: I have other views without the "Tour Saint-Jean". But I've chosen this one because the Tour de la Lanterne is part of an urban landscape, and I wanted to show that it is not alone in the middle of nothing. I think it added something in the composition, as a justification of the not centered presentation. Matter of taste I suppose. Thanks for review and interesting comment anyway.--Jebulon (talk) 19:34, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

neither both ... try to rework your image without "blur", for more sharpness. --Alchemist-hp (talk) 13:21, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
LivioAndronico, the overall softness is not fixed by cranking the sharpening/clarity filter over to the max, nor is a completely blown window recovered by reducing white so that the bright-outside is merely off-white. The adjustment you made is terrible. The original picture was only QI but now it wouldn't even merit that. -- Colin (talk) 17:06, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

  • The altar (and decorations around it, especially top) is captured perfectly here. That's why I've nominated this one. Certainly, not best Diliff interior picture, but without doubt best picture of this church in Commons. This church interior looks so dark in all other photos and this one has that warm gold gloss and lovely detail. There is another version taken from further, however I prefer this one altar-only over it. -- Pofka (talk) 15:24, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
  • For "best picture of a topic/scope" we have com:VIC. --Wladyslaw (talk) 19:07, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Also, as a suggestion, maybe I could crop this image so that the distortion is minimised. There isn't a lot of visual interest beyond the altar anyway. What do you think Pofka / Wladyslaw? Diliff (talk) 19:09, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm not Pofka nor Wladyslaw, but I was trying the same at home and think it's worth the try (and in the hope you provide an enlarged crop). - Benh (talk) 20:32, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
  • I really believe this photo has a chance to be FP. Not only because it is "best picture of a topic/scope", but because it is a really good capture of altar. As Diliff said, there really isn't a lot interesting before the altar (interior paintings requires restoration, IMO). Altar definitely is the main figure in this church. Previously I saw when some windows or doors became FP. Why altar alone can't? Try cropping it, Diliff, if that is really required. :) -- Pofka (talk) 21:53, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks Pofka. Wladyslaw, Colin, Benh, I've reprocessed the image from the original files. I've been able to crop it so that the altar comprises most of the frame, while maintaining the original resolution (actually the horizontal resolution of 6000px is the same, but the vertical res is actually higher now - 4764px vs 4388px previously - due to the aspect ratio change). I've also made some minor changes to the exposure too (slightly brighter, more neutral WB, less overexposure in bright areas) which I hope is a slight improvement. There is still some distortion on the top corners of the altar, but this is still an ultrawide view and can't really be helped. You can decide whether it's enough of a change to support, but I believe the changes are significant enough to justify a second look at least. ;-) Diliff (talk) 11:36, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

    • They're simply distorted by the rectilinear projection, this is normal and happens in any ultrawide angle scene. I could use a different projection but then straight lines would become bent and most people prefer to accept some distortion in exchange for straight lines. I believe I used 75 images to create this. Diliff (talk) 18:20, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
      • That's what I thought Diliff, so you do not use, like, a 24mm and create a panoramic photo? Another thing, In metadata appears that you used a 10 mm, but I don't know any EF 10 mm that are not fisheye, and in your list of equipment does not appear 10 mm :P, so what lens do you used, the Samyang 14mm f/2.8? Thanks for your time, and contributions.-- RTA 05:15, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
        • It's a panoramic stiched image. I use a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 lens (at f/11 or f/13 usually), but PTGui puts the effective focal length in the EXIF data, which in this case is 10mm. It's not completely accurate though, because I often crop the image a bit afterwards, so maybe it's more like 11 or 12mm. Diliff (talk) 09:13, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

The nature is dead due to winter. If these trees at the right side near the church would have leafs, I think it would contrast quite well with the pale church.

    • I disagree with your comment that it is at odds with military behaviour, and I think others who have been in the military would agree with me. It looks like it's been taken just outside a military base - probably Camp Bastion - and that the soldier is using the sight on his rifle to scan the horizon during a pause in the patrol. You can see that he is kneeling by the razor wire & grass outside a base. The metadata shows that it was taken just after sunset in Afghanistan. There the possibility that the photographer has taken time to set up the shot and asked the soldiers to stay where they are, but that's unlikely, and in any case that is not a reason to vote against it - it is a reason to vote for it, as it was clearly taken by a professional photographer out in the field. I also do not believe it is advertising any more than a 'good photo' of anything can be taken as advertising. It would be nonsense to suggest that we should only accept blurry or bloody photographs of warzones. Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 19:45, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

    • Yes, it has been: see the caption: "Soldiers of C Company 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment are silhouetted against the setting sun during operations in Afghanistan in June 2014." If you search for the author's name you will see that he was based in Afghanistan for much of that year and took many other photographs which could only have been taken there. The metadata also matches the time of sunset in Afghanistan during 11 June 2014. Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 19:45, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

  • You're the one who took the picture, so you should explain. Did you take the picture in JPEG? RAW? If in camera JPEG, most in camera processing applies some degree of NR by default, even at ISO 100, but I can't check your settings for you. If RAW which setting did you use for demosaicing? - Benh (talk) 12:54, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I explain if someone asks and not taken for granted,I use only Raw and I don't know what's is "demosaicing" --LivioAndronico talk 17:45, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • If you use raw, whether or not NR is off is not a concern. Demosaicing is (in short) how to translate "raw" data from ur sensor to an image. Demosaicing itself doesn't exactly apply NR, but if you use LR for instance, there's a possibility to apply NR on the process. I don't take NR but the fact details are gone for granted. NR or blurring gives some signature, which I find on all your pictures, and which explains I repeat my reviews since you don't care to listen or give an explanation. - Benh (talk) 19:00, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I do not know what language to write, I can answer if someone asks! This way you do not understand it meaningless.--LivioAndronico talk 23:01, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Quite a long way below FP level. Quite considerable barrel distortion at the edge of the frame, which should be corrected by decent raw software like Lightroom. (Daniel, I don't think it is just the bottom of the buttresses, as it affects the paintings too and is a known problem with this lens at 18mm). The EXIF says you use Paint.Net. That's a tool for creating screenshots and drawing icons, not a proper photo tool. Do yourself a favour and buy Lightroom 6 when it comes out later this month, or subscribe the the Lightroom+Photoshop program for about £8 a month. I think one problem with sharpness is you used f/14. If this is the 18-105 lens then see this review for why f/14 will be soft overall compared to f/8 or faster. I don't understand your "I don't use NR on iso 100". All digital photos have noise reduction applied, it is simply a question of how much and how intelligently. -- Colin (talk) 13:29, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I use Photoshop CC and Paint.net just to cut, I turned off the NR on my Camera, this mean that I don't use it.--LivioAndronico talk 17:48, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • But if you use PS CC, you can (and should) easily correct distortion in Camera Raw, by ticking one box. Or am I misunderstanding something? --DXR (talk) 18:29, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I cannot believe you use Photoshop CC, one of the best image manipulation tools, and then run it through Paint.net, one of the worst, in order to crop it. Photoshop has a great crop tool. And if you save a JPG in one program and run it through another you will lose quality (not to mention that Paint.net loses most of the EXIF data). LivioAndronico, do you shoot raw or JPG? If raw then the NR setting on your camera is ignored. If JPG, then the "NR" setting you claim to have turned off is doing no such thing. Perhaps you've turned off "Long exposure NR" or some other variant. It is simply impossible to turn NR off completely. The image would be noisy and full of coloured splodges without it. -- Colin (talk) 20:01, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Colin If not you see my photos and see what is the program that I have used in the majority. However the photos always in RAW then converted to JPG.For the NR you can read this [3] --LivioAndronico talk 21:26, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
  • As I said, if you shoot raw then the NR setting on your camera has no effect. It only affects the amount of NR applied to the in-camera JPG (which you are not producing) and as the review notes, it still does apply some NR (just not as much). If you use Nikon raw converter then possibly the NR setting may give a hint to the raw converter as to what default amount of NR to apply when developing the raw file. But if you use Adobe Camera Raw with Photoshop CC (and you should as is is excellent) then this will be ignored. -- Colin (talk) 21:35, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

No on this I must admit that you are right, for convert in Jpeg I use the converter of nikon --LivioAndronico talk 22:00, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Ok. I would be interested to see how much you can improve it if you use Camera Raw. I'm puzzled why you use Photoshop or Paint.net for this image since Camera Raw should do all you need (including cropping). If you want a good book on Camera Raw, then buy The Digital Negative by Jeff Schewe. It won't fix the sharpness issues here (due to f/14) but should greatly improve your images vs what Nikon's converter can do. -- Colin (talk) 22:05, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Bull leaping in Crete

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support More paintings ? This one is fabulous IMO, one of the art masterpieces of the western culture. From Knossos, Crete, typical wall fresco of the Minoan civilization, the cretan Bronze Age (around 1600 BCE). It shows young athletes playing by jumping over a bull, with an enthusiastic spectator. The "sport spirit" existed 3500 years ago. This is the original, on display at the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion. A reconstruction can be seen in the Knossos palace. -- Jebulon (talk) 11:14, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Views of Wieliczka Salt Mines by Willem Hondius
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info: This image is stitched from four views extracted from high-quality scans of a series of hand-colored copperplate maps of the town and salt mines of Wieliczka, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Poland's major tourist attractions. It provides a detailed depiction of the life and work of men and horses employed in salt mining in the 17th century. You can see miners carving away blocks of rock salt, horse mills powering water pumps and lifts, brine boiling on the surface, men praying in front of an underground altar (sculpted from rock salt), and even one fellow relieving himself against a wall.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose When I compare to File:Titan-crystal bar.JPG this one is a much weaker composition. There's useless space in the top left. The bars are longer than necessary to achieve their purpose illustrating the crystal bar. The magnification on each bar is thus so low I can't see any surface detail even at 100% (compared to other FP). In most scenarios where this image could be used (illustrating wiki or a book) the crystals would be too small to see in any quality. The only thing this photo offers that isn't offered by our existing FP is that there are two bars with different crystal structure, but this isn't explained. The dark grey surface has an awful lot of chroma noise. -- Colin (talk) 14:26, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

    • A "web image" is an image that is nearly always going to be viewed on a computer using a web browser or mobile app. I keep meaning to write a Commons guideline on it. AdobeRGB is really only good for sending an image directly to a professional printer or magazine, for everyone else it is very likely to result in many people seeing the wrong colours and an increased risk of banding in smooth colour gradients. -- Colin (talk) 12:57, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

    Benh: I have finetuned the luminosity of the shadowed areas and reduced the frindge. I haven't touched the saturation because I believe that the picture is pretty realistic and I have applied the standard configuration that I have been using for years. Btw, I think that this one is probably the most solid FP candidate I had, ever. That makes me sadly believe that I will always get your opposing votes. It is fine to challenge other FP-experienced photographers, but if this picture is not an FP then I got lost... Poco2 20:02, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
    A configuration doesn't work the same for all sources of picture. I still maintain the processing screwed up (a little) the otherwise great scene. Now for my voting scheme : you flood FPC with candidates and it doesn't appear to me that you apply a strict filtering before ur pic gets the candidate label (and ur very own "solid FP candidate" comment seems to confirm that). FPC has to be special, and I hope it remains so. Don't be surprised to get opposes from me as I'm the kind of demanding nitpicking guy (I try to remain "fair" though). As for why I oppose this one vs neutral the stair nom. which had issues as well, I consider they may have forbid you from getting ur tripod out which I consider a mitigating reason (but u didn't share), while a processing can be done again and again. No mitigating reason : much higher expectations. - Benh (talk) 08:39, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
    Benh:::I think that you misunderstood my comment. This picture is probably one of my best pictures, ever, and will stay as my desktop image for a while. You cannot expect that I nominate only those pictures that, I believe, are the best picture have ever I shot. In that case I'd show up here every 2 years at most. I have made some numbers and checked all FPCs initiated by me in Commons and checked the result of them: 162 out of 289 were successful (56% success rate). It may be poor for you, but I'm satisfied with that. You may call that flooding, that's a tough word. Flooding would be 2 nominations per day but there are rules, that I agree with, to avoid that. I see it from a different point of view, out of my last 5 nominations 0% were successful and that is not normal, and no, I don't think that I have lowered the bar for FPCs. Regarding your comment about "mitigating reasons", that surprised me, especially after your statement in a recent nomination saying "only the result counts". Finally, I'd like to remind you again that comments like "cheap", "trivial", "randomed" are out of place when you judge the work of others (not the case in this nominations, but in others). I find that kind of comments unrespectful and discouraging. You can be a nitpicking guy but stay respectful Poco2 14:17, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • I think what Benh meant is that if this is the best FP image you've ever taken (and was taken in August last year), why have you nominated so many inferior images recently? I know you probably have quite a large backlog of images that you haven't had time to process and upload and I can see this was uploaded just prior to nomination, but I think his point is still fair - it's probably better to nominate your best images as a priority. Anyway, of course it's your choice, but I have noticed that many of your nomination images have not been as consistently good recently. Diliff (talk) 14:57, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Indeed, I have a big backlog, that is getting smaller now due to missing equipment, but still go around 2000 pictures from December/January. Sometimes I also wait for contests like WLE or WLM. Poco2 16:36, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Come on Poco... yes the result counts. But I still do know when it's impossible to do otherwise (and I still don't know for the stairs, just out of curiosity). Regarding the result counts nom, it would be just a matter of waiting spring or summer, but I thought it was clear to all... And yes I may be a bit too sincere, and that's because I don't play game or whatever. None of my negative comments are free.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. I agree with Benh too, the processing is not as good as it could be. Maybe you're right that the saturation is accurate (it does seem a bit too much for me though), but there are haloes around the cave where the sky begins. How is this processed? Is it an exposure blend, or did you recover shadows and highlights? In any case, I agree with you, the wow of the scene makes up for these technical deficiencies. This image fixes the main complaint I had about your previous nomination of this waterfall: the cropped pool. Diliff (talk) 23:10, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support When I first saw this my reaction was that Poco had leant on the saturation slider. But Googling for the subject shows it can often be lit spectacularly and colourfully, though there are plenty times also when the light is not good. Good catch. -- Colin (talk) 11:40, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support But I somewhat agree with the comments above. Perhaps a slight change in balance towards wow over quantity would be good. More images like this, please. --DXR (talk) 15:15, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment. I'm not crazy about the composition to be honest. It doesn't seem 'naturally framed', as the top left corners are cut off. Diliff (talk) 23:44, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
I didn't have too much to work with if I wanted this to be good. I actually cropped some more off the right yesterday before nominating because that had some distracting light there. There isn't much more on those upper left corners. Daniel Case (talk) 07:17, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Actually Daniel, coincidentally I also visited the chapel and Painted Hall at Greenwich Hospital yesterday but unfortunately wasn't able to take any of the kind of quality photos you'd expect of me. The problem with visiting randomly is that you're at the mercy of whatever event is going on at the time - the chapel had choir singing practice for the entire afternoon until closure, taking over the front of one whole side aisle with quite a big group so although it was really beautiful singing, it wasn't really conducive to photography. I took a few photos of details such as this but nothing that I was happy with. The tonality was very different though, as the interior lighting was stronger and the light from outside was fairly dark and overcast. I won't link to any of my images of it here as I don't want to distract from your nomination but I'll post something on your talk page. And the Painted Hall was a bit busy with lots of volunteers buzzing around. I was specifically told not to use my tripod in there too, which is pretty much essential for high quality photography. I took a few hand-held panoramas to get an idea of what I could expect, but hand-held indoors usually results in stitching errors and mine were no exception so nothing I took was publishable on Commons. I'm hoping to visit another time and see if I have more luck with finding the two interiors a bit quieter. Apologies for spamming your nomination. ;-) Diliff (talk) 23:44, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
No problems. Looking forward to seeing your images. Daniel Case (talk) 07:17, 27 February 2015 (UTC).

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I don't see anything special about it. It looks like a random composed part of the ceiling. The cropping is too tight. Nice to illustrate an article but not an FP in my opinion. - Benh (talk) 08:48, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Similar to Benh. I do support the idea of taking and uploading "detail" photographs rather than "fit the entire interior into one huge photo" approach always. That the result will often not have wow or composition enough for FP is not a reason to refrain from such image making -- a comprehensive set of photos of a building is valuable and we can't expect all to be spectacular. -- Colin (talk) 11:43, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Exceptional images may sometimes not be of extremely high quality. Here's a rare sea star, which we know only a few specimens reassembled by trawlers. This is the first time it was photographed in its natural environment. We are fortunate that this image is poured into COMMONS.
