J'espère que vous avez une très bonne année pleine de bénédictions et de nouveaux projets. Voici toujours un ami prêt à serrer la main et aider inconditionnellement. --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 21:29, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
Cher Jean-Louis, À mon tour de te souhaiter une magnifique nouvelle année ! Qu'elle soit remarquable pour toi et les tiens à tous points de vue ! Bien amicalement, --Myrabella (talk) 08:46, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
On peut récupérer des images en haute résolution depuis Gallica à l'aide de ce script de ma composition qui recolle des morceaux obtenus à l'aide du zoom. Ça devrait toujours marcher si Gallica n'a pas changé son API. Pmx (talk) 13:09, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
thanks a lot for the improved version. Looks great! Just a question: Can you tell, how you managed the halo to disappear or is it secret? :-) --P e z i (talk) 13:08, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
No secret : as the monument is symmetrical I copied the right side of the fountain, turned it and pasted it on its left side. Then I cut the greater part of the haloed details on file n°1, pasted them on file n°2, and adjusted the light and colour. I did the same for the roof on the left to suppress the round and iridescent part of the halo. Then I used the clone brush for problematical edges and to slightly modify the similar surfaces on the right and on the left. At last I changed the sky because it was too cyan, but I had to overexpose it to keep and "harmony" with the house.-- I'm glad to know you like it and I hope it will be assesed by someone ! -- Cheers. --JLPC (talk) 18:31, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
A very good idea and well done! Thanks again and also for the information. Cheers --P e z i (talk) 16:39, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.
Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.
For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.
Hi. Thanks for looking at this on the QI candidate page. I've re-done the stitching for the file, and fixed the stitching error. You also mentioned about perspective correction - could you elaborate on that, please, as I'm not sure which parts of the image have this problem? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 10:31, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi, Mike. The perspective problem was mentionned by User:Everypicture. As for me, it's a minor problem, unavoidable with panos (I like them a lot) but, looking again at your good picture, I think you can apply two corrections : one on the very right (the gutter isn't perfectly straight !) and another one on the left part of the pano : from the white walls behind the trees to the wheel and wall of the mill itself, vertical lines seem slightly leaning outside. Both corrections are, of course, easy to fix. Last point : I'd have cloned out the smallest ducks swimming on the pond because they don't really look like ducks :)... but this is a personnal point of view. -- Of course, it's always easier to notice defaults on somenone else's picture than on ours, especially on panos, but I hope these few words will help you. -- Sorry for my English. Best regards. --JLPC (talk) 11:16, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi JLPC. Belated thanks for your comments here. I've had a go at trying to straighten the gutter and the walls by adding vertical lines in Hugin, but it seems to re-introduce the stitching errors that were there before, so my inclination is to leave the image as it is now and focus on other work if that's OK, particularly as you say it's a minor problem. On the small ducks: I never like cloning things out, as I prefer to keep my photos as representing reality as my camera saw it. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:55, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Good quality. --Poco a poco 20:42, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
File:La Couronne 16 Oisellerie tour&tourelle 2013.jpg (à The Herald, le 28.01.13, 15 h 06)Edit
Hi ! You asked for a change concerning the title of "File:La Couronne 16 Oisellerie tour&tourelle 2013.jpg". I'm sorry, but this title is not "meaningless", as it is possible to notice by reading the description (in French and in English) underneath the picture . The only queer things are the number (16, which means "Charente" for French users), and the "&" linking to words without any space. I've been using numbers and "&" this way for almost two years on Commons. So do I have to suppress your request or would you be so kind as to suppress it yourself ? Thanks in advance. -- Sorry for my English. -- Cheers. --JLPC (d) 14:05, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
Comment The blurrified face of the man is IMO a criterion against QI promo. Can you revert this? --Cccefalon 21:29, 29 January 2014 (UTC) Done : new file uploaded. --JLPC 23:06, 29 January 2014 (UTC) Much better, QI now. I added the personality tag. --Cccefalon 10:37, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Support All criteria met. --P e z i (talk) 19:38, 26 January 2014 (UTC)Comment vote invalid due to scope change. --P e z i (talk) 23:11, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Comment "Poster for Round the World, at the Empire Theater", not "Poster for the Empire Theatre". And the scope is too narrow. Sorry!--Paris 16 (talk) 21:30, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Comment Scope modified and now broader. (Sorry, Pezi, would you be so kind as to vote again ?) -- @ Paris 16 : If you still think the scope is too narrow, please, let me know what you suggest. --JLPC (talk) 22:47, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Support All criteria met; and much better scope now. ( Question shouldn't there be a "scope change" template added?) --P e z i (talk) 23:11, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks and OK for the "SC" template. --JLPC (talk) 09:11, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Comment I don't known but maybe the scope is too broad now. There are so many theatre posters of the United Kingdom in the 19th century. And I don't think all of good quality images must be a valued image.--Paris 16 (talk) 17:34, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
In fact, in the category linked to my scope, there are four posters of the UK in the 19th century... which is not a lot ! I hope someone else will have a look at this page and will click on the link leading to the category. -- As for "good quamlity images", I don't agree at all : are the non-retouched ones better here ? --JLPC (talk) 14:38, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
★Your nomination has been reviewed and promoted★ Congratulations! The image you nominated was reviewed and has now been promoted as a valued image.

Merci Jean-Louis pour ta suggestion, j'ai téléchargé une nouvelle version, peut-etre un peu trop saturée, mais de toute façon ce n'est pas grave, comme je l'ai déjà dit à A.Savin je compte bien retourner à cet endroit prendre d'autre photos, la prochaine fois je me lèverai plus tot pour avoir une lumière plus agréable... à bientot. --Christian
J'espère que tu as été sensible à cette Dame file:Arctornis l-nigrum MHNT.CUT.2012.0.356. Les Mathes. Female..jpg qui porte sur ses ailes une lettre noire.

Ingratitude de la science, qui n'a pas réparé l’oublie de la nature qui a omis de l'écrire en toute lettre.

Thanks once more, Pezi ! -- Scope corrected.--JLPC (talk) 18:26, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your effort, but I will not correct stitching errors on branches. I have only Hugin available. BTW: This is a two row pano thus some stitching problem on branches are inevitable (especially if it is windy as it was today). This pano was one of my first attempts with the brand new Nodal Ninja 4. At the moment the best idea is to withdraw the pano and look on it later. We should not set the FP bar here because an 100 percent error free pano would take half of a day. There are very less high resolution panos of that kind (near 360°) on Commons. --Tuxyso (talk) 17:05, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
Could you please take another look on the photo. I've uploaded a complete new version with lot of manual control points. Thanks, --Tuxyso (talk) 22:26, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
I've created a new version. The trick was to use masks in Hugin to mark the critical branches. I've created another panorama, it would be very kind if you also take a look on:
Thanks a lot for your help. --Tuxyso (talk) 12:36, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks again for your feedback. I've learned a lot during editing both panos. It's a good idea to go through critical control points (those with a high mean error value). The UI of Hugin is horrible thus it took a time to find all relevant windows and settings. The control point table (key F3) is important to find critical control points - never used before. With both panos Hugin had a lot of problems with vertical lines. I guess the branches without leafs have generated confusion. If you like to experiment with my pano shots, just tell me. In this case I can send the single shots to you. --Tuxyso (talk) 12:29, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
I think I've finally corrected all your raised issues. The darker area was problematic because there was one very dark image (due to dark clouds). IMHO it is now much better. Please take another look on QIC if you like. --Tuxyso (talk) 21:56, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
Salut Jean-Louis, j'ai des problèmes pour faire un panorama, j'ai téléchargé Hugin et ensuite Autostich pour l'assemblage, j'ai l'impression d'avoir respecter toutes les étapes (photos prises (de ce point de vue, ce jour là) avec un trépied, meme expo, meme zoom, ect...), après avoir fait la meme édition sur toutes les photos (clarté, saturation, ect...) je les ais exportées au format TIFF, ensuite ouvertes dans Hugin (création de multiples poits de controle), jusque la tout va bien mais au moment de créer le panorama, rien ne sort. Est-ce qu'il y a une taille maximum de fichiers que Hugin peut exploiter? J'ai d'abord tenté l'assemblage de 10 photo au format TIFF (chacune 4200x2500px), c'est peut-etre un peu trop alors j'ai ensuite essayé avec seulement 2 photos, j'ai ensuite réduit la taille, j'ai aussi essayé au format jpg pour réduire encore la taille, mais rien n'y fait. J'ai aussi des problème avec mon accès internet (des problèmes de certificats non valides) ce qui n'arrange rien car j'ai voulu recommencer l'installation de Hugin et maintenant je ne l'ai plus. Est ce que si je t'envoi des images au format TIFF, tu peux les assembler? Si tu es trop occupé ou que tu n'as pas envie, ne t'inquiète pas, je demanderai à quelqu'un d'autre. --Christian 15:33, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
J'ai des problèmes de connexion, et je suis limité dans mes possibilités d'action sur internet et je n'ai pas réussi à t'envoyer les fichiers, c'est partie remise à plus tard, merci! A bientot. --Christian 20:08, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
