CuriousEdit

Just out of curiosity, what does this comment refer to and why it is relevant to voting on that photo? --cart-Talk 13:05, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Someone somehow impersonated me! Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:02, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Oh!   --cart-Talk 20:04, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, it's disturbing. Admittedly, I did come home tipsy last night, but I wasn't unconsciously drunk or anything like that, don't remember reading the crap that was posted in my name and definitely wouldn't have copied it or posted it anywhere. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:07, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

File:Centro histórico de Skagway, Alaska, Estados Unidos, 2017-08-18, DD 41.jpgEdit

Hi Ikan, I've uploaded a new version of this file. I could do the same with this other one, but that will take pretty long, as I need not just to clone but regenerate content, that's a couple of hours of work. So, if you believe that it's worth it, I'd do it this weekend. Best, Poco2 18:04, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

The updated photo looks beautiful. I think the other one is totally up to you. I don't know if it would have a good shot at FPC: It's quite a striking building, but perhaps some people might object to the building to its left and where it's cropped. It's hard to predict voting at FPC. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:33, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

File:Antwerpen, centraal station oeg7051 IMG 1179 2017-08-27 14.34.jpgEdit

Many thanks for your comment. You are absolutely right; the center of the photo (see personal note) is too hazy. I have tried to enlarge the contrast and make the photo a bit darker, but I don't see any improvement. Do you have any idea how to make it just a bit sharper? I did not use a tripod, but I could support my camera at the railing. I also doubt if my focus was really perfect. If nothing helps I realize I have to withdraw the nomination. Again, thanks for your comment, I learn by making mistakes --Michielverbeek (talk) 22:39, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Stitiching errorEdit

Sorry I don't see this, but where is the stiching marks in this photo: File:Neutrino Sculpture, Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne 2017-10-28.jpg Thanks. PumpkinSky talk 02:30, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

It's marked. Look at the parallel lines, and you'll see some that are arbitrarily interrupted and don't meet. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:17, 3 December 2017 (UTC)
Oh yea. Shame. Otherwise it's a nice photo.
I have another question. On the photo with two flowers currently at QIC CR, you said you think not QI but good for FP. How so? At first thought that sounds backwards. PumpkinSky talk 12:17, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
It's not backwards. In FPC, we consider "wow". In QIC, technical shortcomings override a compelling composition. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 12:56, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
I can see that, but I also think it also comes down to individuals and how they interpret the guidelines; such the FPC I just closed that went 14-7-1. What is WOW or great composition, etc for one person is not so for some other people. Thanks. PumpkinSky talk 13:00, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
Of course. "Wow" is expressly subjective. Elements of a compelling composition get somewhat more agreement but also are often differed on, too. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:05, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

Czech Republic map as featured picture candidateEdit

Hi, Ikan Kekek. Thank you for the comments on the Czech Republic map proposal for featured picture candidate. My main purpose is to improve at maximum the maps' generation and therefore I think your comments are very useful. I just want to understand your idea about the needs for more details. Do you mean that you would like to see also the names of geographical items on it such as mountains, valleys etc.? Or may be you mean something else? I will be happy to have your detailed feedback. Regarding the size, please note that the maps I am generating are in SVG format and as such they can be printed in bigger size than the one they are generated. I can increase the size but the issue is that they may become unreadable when included in the articles as thumbnails. The same issue appears when they are too detailed. That's why I personally prefer to create different maps with the required details instead putting everything in one map. This also the advantage of the electronic format compared to paper. You can see an example of a map I made here and another one with details only about relief here Thank you --Ikonact (talk) 08:45, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

I'm happy to address your question as well as I can. In my opinion, for an optimal map, everything should be clearly labeled - every stream, every mountain, every road and railway line where relevant, etc. And if you could use a digital format that could be enlarged to a very high degree, that would be ideal. Your maps are certainly good, even quite good, but if you want them to be really optimal, I suggest these things. Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:44, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
OK, thanks, understood. I am currently working on another map and may be I can apply your recommendations. So I will make it bigger (around 8 000 x 8 000 px ), add geographical information and road numbers. I do not know if I can provide more information for the railways but I will see. I still need to find a good balance between detailed map and possibility to be readable when included in the article. May be I can withdraw the current nomination and come back once the new map is ready. Thank you --Ikonact (talk) 10:43, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
I wouldn't recommend for you to withdraw the current nomination, which looks like it will be promoted very comfortably. Instead, you should feel free to offer the new map as a substitute when it's ready. One way to provide a balance between labeling and readability is to provide a legend that explains your symbols and consider using different colors or shapes (double lines, striped lines, etc.) for different major highways or railways. Depending on your emphasis, this may not be necessary, but I would definitely suggest labeling every village, every stream and every mountain, and distinguishing in your symbols between superhighways, secondary roads and tertiary roads.
