Consensual reviewEdit



  • Nomination Oriental magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis) at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Very slight pre-process posterization, I've no idea why. Also, the wet feathers that are reflecting the sunlight may be mistaken for artifacting.--GerifalteDelSabana 14:18, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Promotion
  •   Oppose Background too dark for bird --Atamari 14:29, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
@Atamari: The issue has been promptly addressed. --GerifalteDelSabana 14:33, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support I'll go along with this one; the bird itself is sharp and the background isn't too distracting for QI.--Peulle 12:11, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support per Peulle --Sandro Halank 15:18, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support QI 4 me. --Palauenc05 08:18, 22 July 2018 (UTC)
Total: 3 support (excluding the nominator), 1 oppose →   Promoted   --Peulle 10:33, 24 July 2018 (UTC)



  • Nomination Start am Mittag, See am Goldberg, 63150 Heusenstamm By User:Mathias Mauer --Ralf Roletschek 06:53, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Decline
  •   OpposeNot sharped, not focused, slight motion blurring and posterization. --GerifalteDelSabana 06:56, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   SupportBut for me it's good enough. Tournasol7 07:00, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose per GerifalteDelSabana --Sandro Halank 13:30, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment The filename must be improved. --XRay 05:19, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Quality-wise close to QI but I'm not quite sure, and the file name/description are meaningless.--Peulle 12:15, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment With species in the filename a good QI. --GPSLeo 20:45, 22 July 2018 (UTC)
Total: 1 support (excluding the nominator), 3 oppose →   Declined   --Peulle 10:32, 24 July 2018 (UTC)



  • Nomination The castle Burg Landshut in Bernkastel-Kues.--Peulle 23:38, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Promotion
  •   Oppose Not sharp enough, perhaps because of the haze --Daniel Case 17:10, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your review. I think I'd like to get some more input on this one, though: considering the camera is 2,9 km away from the target and that we can still see individual stones in the walls despite the slight haze, I'm hard pressed to find anything really technically wrong with it. I have a feeling that this is about as good a long-shot it's possible to get on a hazy day. What do we think, people?--Peulle 19:41, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Good motive, but unfortunately for me no QI. --Fischer.H 11:40, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Weak   Support. Somewhat soft probably due to haze, but "good enough". "De-hazing" would give unnatural colours. --Smial 09:24, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  • weak   Support, per Smial --Sandro Halank 09:59, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Neutral The blue haze in the air should not exist in a quality image. The positive reviews surprise me. -- Spurzem 20:56, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Weak support per Smial. I've tried something of the same concept in the past, but it's so hazy here, "dust and dander" is rated on "extreme", haha... --GerifalteDelSabana 06:53, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Weak support I'm agree whith others. Good picture. Clarity would be better. es: Aumentando la claridad el problema se reduce ---Lmbuga 17:08, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
New retouched image: File:Burg Landshut jun 2018 (4 retouched).jpg. I think that it's better and QI like the other one--Lmbuga 17:31, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  Comment Very nice rework, because it preserves some of the haze and did not increase color saturation too much. Now it is up to peulle, if he wants to withdraw the original and accept the rework? I do not think both versions of the very same image should be QI. --Smial 12:25, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
I have no idea what was done to that new image. If it's better, though, why not simply re-upload it as a new version? This is Commons after all.--Peulle 20:06, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
The author of the two photos is @Peulle:. If he wants to upload the second over the first, and delete the one that I have uploaded, there is no problem. (@Smial:)--Lmbuga 11:07, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
If someone wants to upload the new version over the old one, I have no problem with that.--Peulle 12:22, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
  Done Thanks --Lmbuga 11:07, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
