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)

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.

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.

Your question about my QI nominationEdit

Hello! Thank you for the QI promotion of File:Ex shell überseering 35 07.jpg! You asked if it has been judged before. Yes it has, but the process was not brought to an end. If you take a look at the archived discussion out of November 2015, you find that there was quite a lot of talk, but it was never formally ended and so the image was neither promoted nor declined. I wanted a formal decision, because this image is one of the Top 100 images from WLM Germany 2015. And of course, because I like some of the images out of this series. ;-) Greetings, --Dirtsc (talk) 09:55, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

Masking errorEdit

The shell photos are composed of 5 single, focus stacked images with an unicoloured (normally black) background. Then I cut out the single pictures (not exactly along the border of the shell but with a black border) and arrange them in one picture. If the background colour of the single picture is not exactly the same colour as the background colour of the composite (e.g. a bit brighter, as in this case, when I adjusted the brightness of some of shell views to an equal level and forgot to darken the black part again), you can see the contour of the cut-out single shell. This I call a masking error (Masking = to cut out the contour of a photographed object). Greetings --Llez (talk) 12:42, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for working on it. I'm not sure whether it's good to go or not.

If you look at the file histories, you'll see I uploaded new versions of all three of those images last night.

Shrimp? - Maybe? I didn't have a better idea, but from that angle the tail looked a little off (or perhaps -- likely -- I just don't often see shrimp outside of a culinary setting, sadly). — Rhododendrites talk |  17:17, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Nordkirchen, Naturschutzgebiet Ichterloh -- 2018 -- 2131-7.jpgEdit

I wasn't sure whether to post the comments at that FP, the other FP, or on talk-FP. It seems that comparing these two images at equal size was a useful exercise. I saw a significant risk that this image would be pixel-peep opposed, because the votes were headed in that direction, rather than accumulating support. And I see it as hugely unfair that simultaneously the other image was actually being praised for being downsized to 3.8MP. Xray was being denied support because he'd uploaded 30MP rather than 3.8MP. I pinged you and the others, because etiquette is that you should tell people that there's a discussion that involves what they've said/done, and not because I wanted to single out any one voter.

The one vote-rationale I did single out was, by quite some margin, the worst and most harmful vote-rationale I've seen on Commons in 2018. It is one thing to not notice the small size, or to notice and judge on balance that the image is so great anyway, but I don't think you or I want Commons FP to be one where "downsizing for the web 3.8MP" is actively and specifically praised and encouraged.

We now have both images at similar full size, and it is clear which photographer is more talented with processing. -- Colin (talk) 08:05, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Yes it is. But my remarks on that particular nomination by XRay were very high praise. I in fact suggested the nomination in the response thread at QIC and would have nominated it myself if XRay hadn't gotten around to it soon, though you probably didn't know any of that. As for the other image, I didn't realize it had been downsized and simply reacted to what I saw. Considering that no-one had opposed - or indeed has opposed - the nomination in question, I think you seriously overreacted and would have been better placed to simply post your upsized photo in the thread of the other photo. Meanwhile, about that snide remark that I "really do pixel peep the 30MP images to death", when you see an instance of what looks like that to you, comment on it specifically in the relevant thread and see if you can convince me to lift an oppose vote, but don't just flail about making global accusations. Thanks in advance, and good day. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 12:39, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
Ikan, I've fixed my comment there to say "Some of these same reviewers". It was rather careless of me to make it appear I was critical of all of the other voters pixel peeping record. Or even most of them. Three votes had commented on the pixel issues, and each time getting a bit stronger, with Donald's neutral vote representing a refusal to support because of pixel issues. Of course we'll never now how it might have developed from there, but I have seen many many nominations build up a collection of negative voting over these pixel issues, and for some it is death. Clearly from the fp-talk discussion ("We have a serious problem"), x-ray is also concerned his images are being unfairly reviewed at 100%. We both know initial impressions count, and not everyone returns to fix up earlier votes. You may be right I posted in the wrong place.
As for "I didn't realize it had been downsized and simply reacted to what I saw" there is a useful script you can add to your User:Ikan Kekek/vector.js
 //
 // Calculate Megapixels on image pages
 //
 function calculateMegapixels() {
  var data = $('.fileInfo').text();
  pixel_filter = /([\d,]+) × ([\d,]+)/;
  if(pixel_filter.test(data)) {
   pixel_filter.exec(data);
   var wt = RegExp.$1, ht = RegExp.$2
     , w = parseFloat( wt.replace(/,/,) )
     , h = parseFloat( ht.replace(/,/,) );
   $('.fileInfo').append( $('').text(' (' + ((w*h)/1e6).toFixed(2) + ' Megapixel)' ) );
  }
 }
 if( wgAction == 'view' && wgNamespaceNumber == 6 ) $j(document).ready(calculateMegapixels);
This adds e.g. "(30.08 Megapixel)" to the dimensions on the file description page. I wish there was a way to add it to the FP nomination page. I think you are one of the more thoughtful and considerate reviewers, and open to reconsidering your votes. I didn't mean to drag you into the pixel-peeing criticism. -- Colin (talk) 13:40, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, Colin, that's nice of you. And of course I get your point. I'm not sure I understand how to add this script to a redlink, though. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:09, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
If you click on the redlink, there should be text in blue saying "create this page". Click on that and then insert the above text into the box. Publish. You may need to use Ctrl-F5 to refresh any already-opened pages. -- Colin (talk) 18:20, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

I'd be interested in your views on User:Colin/ShortestSide. Not planning to propose any time soon, though. -- Colin (talk) 18:49, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

It's logically argued. I don't think I'd express an opinion about it in a discussion, but I'd be happy to accept any consensus. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:58, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

City Hall stationEdit

The NY Transit Museum does tours of the City Hall station a few times a year. They don't make it easy, though. You have to become a member, know the day the tickets go on sale (quarterly), get to the website within a few minutes before they sell out, and pay almost as much as the membership for each ticket, up to the number of people on the membership, then send them each photos of each person's id a month in advance. It's a pretty rare opportunity to do some legal urban exploration, though. :) You can also see the station from the 6 train when it uses the City Hall loop from its end (?). More here if interested: Category:Photographs taken by Rhododendrites - City Hall StationRhododendrites talk |  14:32, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Alaska tripEdit

Hi Ikan, I just saw your question about my Alaska trip. I was up there 3 weeks, the first one was a cruise from Vancouver to Seward and then I took a car for 2 weeks and followed a kind of 8-shape route with Tok in the connecting point and Dawson City, Denali, Haines an Anchorage in the circles. Are you enjoying it? there is yet more to come :) Poco2 06:03, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes. It's amazing how much you were able to photograph in 3 weeks in such a vast state! Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:49, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks Ikan for promoting File:The Spire.jpg! I did not think that this could be a featured picture and now it is a candidate for the picture of the year contest!

ElbowsEdit

Thanks for the comment at QIC. Regarding this guy, he did in deed have a little space under his elbows. I went back and forth between getting the lines behind him just right and having that extra space at the bottom. :) I've uploaded the other version. The perspective adjustment is slightly different in order to have a different crop. I was hoping more people would pass in front of that yellow background, but it was sort of off the parade path. Was happy to catch him there -- his face/umbrella combo might've been my favorite costume there. Ever been? — Rhododendrites talk |  15:27, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Not yet. I keep having a gig that day or something. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:29, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
I've been vaguely aware of it for a while, but had no idea it was as popular as it is (one of the city's biggest annual events, apparently). Decided to go this year, and paid the $40 to get a "photographer's pass" into the staging area, in the amphitheater there on the boardwalk. On the upside, it gave an opportunity to take pictures away from the crowds, bustle, and harsh sun; the down side is it removed the context of the parade and made for more boring backgrounds. Meh. This pic is obviously outside, though, near the end of the parade route. FYI Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Mermaid Parade (61042).jpg. — Rhododendrites talk |  19:48, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Question, your opinionEdit

Hey Ikan, now that I've refined this image the best I can, do you think it would fare well in a re-nomination (if I renom'd it)? If it were the first time you were seeing the picture, would you have supported it? GerifalteDelSabana (talk) 14:41, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

The nomination is still under consideration. See how that plays out. If it doesn't pass, I would suggest for you not to renominate it. I like the photo, but you are probably capable of taking better photos than that, although in my opinion, it's very good. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:44, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

Possible FP?Edit

File:Juvenile_Black-naped_Oriole_@_KL.tif

I personally wouldn't nominate it for QI since the image is a little soft, but I go "wow" every time I look at this picture. What do you think? GerifalteDelSabana (talk) 02:25, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

I think it might be a QI and might be an FP. I couldn't be sure on either, but I like it. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:51, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
What about this one? The one aforementioned had -17 vibrance on lightroom, I moved this one to -7 just in case someone dislikes it. I also have zero sharpening on both pictures to reduce any artifacting and posterizing. I forgot to change the file name, which was a big mistake. Now, I'm just waiting for the file to be moved to an appropriate name. GerifalteDelSabana (talk) 06:44, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Quality images candidates/candidate list/মানিকতলা চালতাবাগান দূর্গা পূজা ২০১৭Edit

I have re-done the given panorama from scratch, applied de-noise and then an output sharpner.

My constraint was that I did not had a sufficient fast lens with a wide coverage at that time, so I tried to do a handheld panorama using my 35mm f/1.8 dx.

However couple of frame are simplu out of focus and cannot be recovered beyond a point.

I am not liking the quality and would like to withdraw it from the quality image nomination.

Scope changedEdit

I only saw the question late. Shepherds may be referred to as Pâtre , a more poetic term. But I did not find the right word in English I finally put "Shepard", we understand better even if the poetry loses. Thank you for your always constructive remarks. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 06:35, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

"Shepherd" is the more common spelling. "Pastor" is fine, though. Nowadays, we most commonly use "pastor" to mean a preacher, but that's because the congregation is the flock, and it's by analogy with a pastor tending his sheep. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:14, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Good morning Ikan,Edit

Subject: Drenched turkey tails (Trametes versicolor) on a dead branch. That is my problem. I do not know which is the best photo. I think File: Elfenbankje (Tramways versicolor) (d.j.b.) 01.jpg or File: Elfenbankje (Trams versicolor) (d.j.b.) 03.jpg. The choice is yours. With kind regards, Dominicus Bergsma.--Famberhorst (talk) 06:26, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
