Consensual reviewEdit



  • Nomination Sekolah Kebangsaan Kampung Silam (SK Kg Silam), a primary school in Lahad Datu District (shooting distance 3 km) --Cccefalon 19:54, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Promotion   Oppose I think the power grid lines in the foreground spoils it. Otherwise nice. --Slaunger 11:35, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
      Support I disagree Don't think a small composition issue should be sufficiant for a decline. Regarding the circumstances the image is otherwise good enough for QI. Perhaps somewhat high colour saturation. --Smial 11:53, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
  Comment The power grid is not in the near but in the far. It is pretty impossibe to avoid power grids if you take photos of a bigger portion of a piece of country. --Cccefalon 06:17, 9 July 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination Tail of the first A380 prototype, at Toulouse Blagnac airport. --Gyrostat 05:39, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Decline   Support ok --Cccefalon 06:47, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
      Oppose I'm sorry but a completely blown out sky can not become Q.I. in my book. --Uberprutser 12:08, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
    I am fully aware of that. I took it as a kind of studio shot of a single object. good enough for QI. --Cccefalon 13:17, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
      Oppose per Uberprutser. --Iifar 18:40, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
      Oppose due to the cut horizontal stabilizer, that is part of the aircraft's tail -- DerFussi 09:01, 12 July 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination Sony α 77 II A-mount camera - rear --Colin 21:20, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Promotion   Comment Very nice photo but I don't like the compostion, black camera with black background Ezarate 21:55, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
    Low-key lighting is a valid style of photography. Black-on-black is not a wrong option and used in educational, commercial and fine art ( See related photos on image-description page. -- Colin 19:59, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Support Good low-key studio shot, nothing to complain. However, the crop feels a little bit too tight. Can you add some space? --Cccefalon 05:35, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
I'll have a look. -- Colin 19:08, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  • weak   Support - Just had the same thought like Cccefalon and almost caused an edit conflict.. :) agree him 100% -- DerFussi 06:48, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Cccefalon, DerFussi: I've increased the border. Doesn't look much more in the thumb but clear when you load full-size. -- Colin 18:11, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Great. Only some pixels, but a big improvement. Well done. --Cccefalon 18:36, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
I agree... :) ... good work -- DerFussi 20:00, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Support The black on black is very nice. There is one little nit - on the bottom of the view finder is a row of a few bright pixels from the flash that could be cloned out. --Generic1139 (talk) 21:16, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
    • I'll fix that tonight -- Colin 11:49, 14 July 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination Dobrota, Bay of Kotor, Montenegro --Poco a poco 13:07, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Decline   Comment Good IMO, but two dust spots (see notes)--Lmbuga 20:07, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
      Done Poco a poco 21:50, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
    Weak   Oppose Only sharp thing here is the green car. --Iifar 17:34, 3 July 2014 (UTC)**Please avoid the use of {weak support} or {weak oppose} templates. The bot does not recognize them, and your vote may be invalid. Thank you.--Jebulon 10:34, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
      Support Good IMO and good size--Lmbuga 16:20, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
      OpposeI agree Iifar -- DerFussi 06:53, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Comment There are two notes in the image about dust spots. Sp: Yo no he sido capaz de ver las manchas en ese sitio, pero he visto al menos una en un lugar próximo. He hecho una anotación con el texto "mancha"--Lmbuga 22:30, 7 July 2014 (UTC). Sp: La segunda mancha, definitivamente, no la veo. Me parece una exageración. Suerte y buena vista--Lmbuga 22:34, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
    pues si que eran realizadas por mi, pero no habían sido borradas las notas, pero si las manchas. Fíjate en la nota que acabo de hacer (texto: "mancha") y borra las anotaciones todas pues pueden provocar que otros no voten a favor.--Lmbuga 23:24, 7 July 2014 (UTC) Ya he borrado las notas antiguas, borra tú la nueva.--Lmbuga 23:26, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Comment Dust spots are gone, declining for sharpness issues is maybe a bit tough Poco a poco 11:55, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Motion blur by horizontal camera shake. Or perhaps defective/badly working image stabilizer. Sorry, no-go for daylight landscape photography. -- Smial 11:49, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Sweet Pea-1.jpgEdit


  • Nomination Sweet Pea at fence --Aftabbanoori 10:49, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Decline   Support Good quality. --Cccefalon 11:16, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Oppose I disagree, its very noisy - seems to be just a smartphone photo --Uoaei1 19:47, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Agree, too noisy at full size unfortunately. KTC 23:09, 7 July 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination Parish church of Sacred Heart of Jesus in Jastrzębie-Zdrój, Poland --Halavar 18:59, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Decline You have cut the church on the right side a little bit, but it looks there would have been space to catch the whole building. -- DerFussi 20:24, 1 July 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination Saint Roch chapel at Fonteklaus in Lajen 17th century --Moroder 05:18, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Decline I don’t like the arch framings partially cut by the image borders. Looks like a random shot. Got a slightly wider view of these? --Kreuzschnabel 05:41, 28 June 2014 (UTC)  Done Thanks --Moroder 23:18, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
    Much better framing, still I am not convinced by the sharpness. The "shell" behind the Maria statue looks considerably sharper than the statue itself. Shifted focus or too shallow DoF. Move to CR. --Kreuzschnabel 08:20, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

File:University Park MMB U2 Derby Hall.jpgEdit


  • Nomination Derby Hall. Mattbuck 06:53, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Decline Good quality. --Joydeep 08:52, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
    Right side of the image is quite soft, CA on windows? --Lewis Hulbert 18:28, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Per Lewis Hulbert. And at least three dustspots in the sky to be corrected before the nomination (as old and famous regulars here should do in order to provide a good example for newbies  ) --Jebulon 10:41, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Oppose false focus point (foreground: railing!?). --Alchemist-hp 07:02, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per Alchemist-hp, the handrail is much sharper than the building. --Kreuzschnabel 08:26, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Running total: 0 support (excluding the nominator), 2 oppose → Decline?   --Alchemist-hp 07:02, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

File:London MMB «13 Millennium Dome.jpgEdit


  • Nomination: The Millennium Dome. Mattbuck 07:51, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Review   Oppose - Right side blurry, sorry --Poco a poco 17:31, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
    It might not be quite as sharp as the left, but it's not blurry IMO. Mattbuck 21:07, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
  •   Support Cannot find really disturbing blur. Nice lighting, good composition, acceptable sharpness. -- Smial 22:36, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
  •   Support QI --Christian Ferrer 17:34, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
  •   Neutral The sky is still noisy. Can see it even with 50%. I've tried to fix it with my (I have to admit, newer) Photoshop CC 2014 and it was a bit better. You used CS5. But I am new here in the QI discussion and have to get a feeling, how much noise is acceptable, how much not. Don't want to kick it just because I am new here. Besides that I agree Smial. So I am not sure right now... -- DerFussi 19:55, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Not that sharp, and disturbing noise (IMO). Posterization in the sky at right. However, a very good light and impressive composition.--Jebulon 10:46, 6 July 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination Altar of Catholic Church St. Anthony, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia --Cccefalon 21:04, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
  •   Comment The top of the altar is out of focus and the bright band on the right is disturbing. Why not crop both off? The paliotto is interesting though --Moroder 12:04, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Decline
    • Thanks you for reviewing. Please take a second look: It's not the top of the altar but the tabernacle which is not standing on the altar but 4 metres behind. Cropping right side is leaving the image unbalanced with half a candle and/or a too tight crop. Eventually send it to CR. --Cccefalon 17:05, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
      • I feel it unbalanced. If you crop you could retouch the stand. --Moroder 17:31, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
      • Let's hear opinions from others --Moroder 17:33, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
  •   Support QI IMO --Christian Ferrer 17:31, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
  •   Oppose IMHO not --Steinsplitter 09:28, 27 June 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination: starry sky near Brandenburg an der Havel (Germany), close to midnight. --Leviathan1983 14:14, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Review Too much artefacts. Sorry, no QI. --Cccefalon 14:20, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
    I don't see so much artefacts. I guess it's kind of usual to see some of the on a well exposed starry sky. --Anıl Öztaş 09:01, 21 June 2014 (UTC)   Info I´ve uploaded a new, completly reworked version with a much more natural look and better quality. --Leviathan1983 13:19, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
  •   Support I think, that the problem is tackled sufficiently. I won't expect miracles from a starred sky photo with long time exposure. --Cccefalon 10:33, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
  •   Info II Selimabner was so kind to link many stars and constellations as annotations in the image. This raises the ev a lot I think. Thanks to Selimabner!! --Leviathan1983 07:47, 25 June 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination Ibar river, Ribarice, Serbia --Poco a poco 10:55, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Decline Left side shows shake. --Mattbuck 22:42, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
    The "shaky" area was minimal, I cropped that out, should be OK IMHO, please, let's discuss --Poco a poco 10:36, 20 June 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination Baphuon, Angkor Thom‎, Cambodia --Poco a poco 17:33, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Promotion Corners show distortion. --Mattbuck 22:13, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
      Corrected + new crop, Poco a poco 10:42, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
      Support I think it's OK after correction --Llez 11:09, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
      Support The corners are fine now.--Generic1139 20:42, 9 July 2014 (UTC)



  • Nomination: Exposition halls in Pereslavl museum. --PereslavlFoto 21:20, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Review
  •   Info Leaning in. Mattbuck 21:38, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
    •   Info Made with digital level, aligned with the vertical lines of the building. --PereslavlFoto 06:30, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
      •   Comment Still leaning in. --Kreuzschnabel 19:24, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
        • You may speak about the glass box at the right side. It is really leaning in, for the glass box is not straight and direct. Compare with this file to be sure that 40 years old showcases are curve ones. My aim was not to make an ideal direct sketch but to show a real room with real showcases. --PereslavlFoto 11:40, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
