Photo Challenge Silhouette

Hi Julian,

This is to congratulate you for this photo of yours. For me, it is one of the best in the Silhouette contest! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 16:15, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I'm really glad for the photo contest, I probably would have never uploaded or even noticed it otherwise. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 15:49, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your notes in my nomination. I will try fix this and try again. A hug --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 15:59, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Dear Julian, Thanks for taking the time to make such a good analysis of my nomination. Good to know that there are people who take things seriously. :)--Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 12:44, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Your revision (Pietà)

Thank you so much, I was completely lost !

My goal was to renominate this pic (corrected) in FPC, but I don't know how to do...--Jebulon (talk) 12:42, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

To renominate it, just create a new nomination (ignoring the old one) and add a "/2" at the end of the nomination page title to make it a new page. In this case, this would be at Commons:Featured_picture_candidates/File:Michelangelo's_Pietà_Saint_Peter's_Basilica_Vatican_City.jpg/2. Do that either by entering the /2 at the end of the nomination script at Commons:Featured picture candidates#Adding a new nomination or manually by creating the page with your info filled into the standard form:
{{subst:FPCnom/Basic
|description = SHORT DESCRIPTION
|format = landscape <!--change to portrait, panorama, or square, if appropriate-->
}}
*{{Info}} created by [[User:USERNAME|]] - uploaded by [[User:USERNAME|]] - nominated by [[User:USERNAME|]] -- ~~~~

Hallo Julian, zunächst danke für den Hinweis auf die Kanten in meinem Borgward-Foto (Borgw Isabella, Bj. 1959, Bad Neuenahr (2014-08-29 6701).JPG) bei den Featured-Image-Kandidaten. Bist Du bitte so nett und schaust es Dir noch mal an? Jetzt müsste es in Ordnung sein. Viele Grüße -- Lothar Spurzem (talk) 22:50, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Julian, ich werde möglicherweise lästig, aber schau bitte noch einmal nach „meinem“ Borgward. Die Kontur am Dach, um die es Dir wahrscheinlich ging, ist jetzt weg. Gruß -- Lothar Spurzem (talk) 13:12, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Du wirst nicht lästig. :) Ich frage mich, wieso du die Kontur durch klonen korrigierst. Es sind noch solche Stellen an der Heckklappe, am linken Außenspiegel, und an der Chromverkleidung des linken Blinkers. Hast du keine Möglichkeit, die Korrekturen an der Originaldatei vorzunehmen? — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 13:53, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Julian, i left comment there. I must reconsider to start downsizing everything, since others do and yet standards are same. --Mile (talk) 19:37, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't really see what that has to do with banding. Banding doesn't improve when the image is downsampled. It's just a question of the camera applying too much noise reduction followed by too much jpeg compression. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 19:41, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Earth 2014 - Ein Wiki-Beitrag für den Naturschutz

Hallo Julian Herzog,

vor einer Woche endete der zweimonatige Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Earth. Du hast daran aktiv teilgenommen und wir möchten Dir dafür herzlich danken.

Mit rund 14.500 Fotos hat Deutschland einen Anteil von 20 % an diesem internationalen Projekt erbracht, an dem sich 15 Länder beteiligten. Sehr erfreulich ist die hohe Zahl an 729 Teilnehmern allein in Deutschland. Einen Überblick zu den Fotos und Teilnehmern findest du auf unserer WLE-Projektseite.

Gegenwärtig ist die deutsche Jury dabei, diesen wertvollen Fotobestand zu geschützten Naturlandschaften und Naturdenkmalen zu sichten. Am kommenden Wochenende wird in Hamburg die entscheidende Jury-Sitzung stattfinden. Wir wünschen auch Dir mit Deinem Foto-Beitrag dabei viel Glück und Erfolg.

Der nächste Fotowettbewerb steht bereits vor der Tür. Im September findet nun schon zum vierten Mal der Wettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments statt, wo die Kulturdenkmale im Vordergrund stehen. Doch du musst mit dem Fotografieren nicht bis zum September warten. Vielleicht kannst du den Sommer nutzen um entsprechend den offiziellen Denkmallisten geeignete Motive aufzuspüren. Ebenso kannst du gerne dabei helfen, die hochgeladenen Fotos zu kategorisieren oder in Wikipedia-Artikel und Listen einzubinden.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß dabei wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 startet in Kürze

Hallo Julian Herzog,

in Kürze ist es wieder soweit. Der nun schon traditionelle Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments wird im September zum vierten Mal stattfinden. In ähnlicher Form hatte unlängst der Wettbewerb "Wiki Loves Earth" eine erfolgreiche Premiere. Zu allen bisherigen vier Wettbewerben haben seit 2011 gut 3000 unterschiedliche Teilnehmer (User) ihren Beitrag geleistet. Du warst dabei, und bist auch herzlich eingeladen, am bevorstehenden WLM-Wettbewerb wieder dabei zu sein.

Allein in Deutschland wurden in den letzten drei Jahren im Rahmen von WLM rund 100.000 Fotos zu den insgesamt ca. 850.000 Kulturdenkmalen bundesweit hochgeladen. Jährlich haben sich mehrere Hundert Wiki-Fotographen daran beteiligt. Auch im kommenden Denkmalmonat wird dies gewiss wieder der Fall sein. Der Tag des offenen Denkmals am 14. September bietet bundesweit vielfältige Möglichkeiten, Denkmale nicht nur von außen, sondern auch von innen zu fotografieren. Denkmallisten sind dabei ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt und zugleich auch Ziel der Einbindung der Fotos. Auch in diesem Jahr sind wieder neue Denkmallisten hinzugekommen, die hilfreich bei der Planung von individuellen oder Gruppen-Fototouren sind und auf eine Bebilderung warten, wie z.B. zu Görlitz oder Zittau. Unter den Landeshauptstädten fehlt nur noch Stuttgart. Aber auch hier ist Licht in Sicht.

In der Mitte Deutschlands hat die Denkmallandschaft der thüringischen Landeshauptstadt Erfurt nun das Licht der Wikipedia-Welt entdeckt. Mehr als 50 Tabellen enthalten 3.700 Denkmale. Allein die wunderschön restaurierte Altstadt umfasst 1.800 Denkmale. Eine von WMDE geförderte WLM-Fototour nach Erfurt am Wochenende vom 29. – 31. August lädt herzlich ein, diese einzigartige Kulturlandschaft zu dokumentieren. Mehr Informationen findest Du auf der Projektseite.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß beim größten Fotowettbewerb der Wiki(m/p)edia wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 16. August 2014)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 - Ein Wiki-Beitrag für die Denkmaltopographie

Hallo Julian Herzog,

vor zehn Tagen endete der vierte Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments. Du hast daran aktiv teilgenommen und wir möchten Dir dafür herzlich danken.

Mit mehr als 35 Tausend Fotos hat Deutschland wie in den Vorjahren ein gutes Ergebnis erreicht und einen Anteil von 14 % an diesem internationalen Projekt erbracht, an dem sich 40 Länder beteiligten. Sehr erfreulich ist die hohe Zahl an 651 Teilnehmern allein in Deutschland. Schon zum Abschluss des Wettbewerbs waren rund 6000 Fotos (=17 %) in Listen und Artikel eingebunden. Einen detaillierten Überblick zu den Fotos, den Bundesländern und Teilnehmern findest du auf unserer WLM-Projektseite.

Die deutsche Jury hat nun die eingereichten Beiträge übernommen und ist gegenwärtig dabei, diesen wertvollen Fotobestand zu den Kulturdenkmalen zu sichten. Am nächsten Wochenende wird in Hamburg die entscheidende Jury-Sitzung stattfinden. Wir wünschen auch Dir mit Deinem Foto-Beitrag dabei viel Glück und Erfolg. Du darfst gespannt sein und all Deine Freunde bitten, Dir die Daumen zu drücken.

Die preisgekrönten 100 Gewinner-Fotos werden in der Woche ab dem 20. Oktober veröffentlicht. Auf dieser Grundlage wird auch in diesem Jahr ein Kalender-Poster für 2015 gedruckt werden.

Auf zwei Möglichkeiten einer weiteren aktiven Mitwirkung an unserem Denkmal-Projekt möchten wir bei dieser Gelegenheit hinweisen bzw. Dich dazu einladen:

  • Unsere Freunde in Österreich haben mit einem gerade gestarteten Denkmal-Cup das Editieren von Denkmallisten und Denkmalartikeln in den Focus gerückt. Bis Ende des Jahres kannst Du Punkte sammeln und Preise gewinnen. Dabei geht es mit diesem Wettbewerb nicht nur um Kulturdenkmale in AT oder D, sondern generell um Denkmale in der deutschsprachigen Wikipedia, als offen für alle Länder.
WLM-Aktivisten sind herzlich eingeladen, bei der Betreuung des Messestandes sowie in den Gesprächen über Möglichkeiten einer partnerschaftlichen Zusammenarbeit mit den Denkmalbehörden mitzuwirken. Die Reisekosten übernimmt für 8-10 registrierte Standbetreuer WMDE. Es muss nicht der gesamte Messezeitraum sein, auch eine Mitwirkung an 2 Tagen hilft uns, den Beitrag der Wikipedia für die Denkmaltopographie sichtbar zu machen.

Und schließlich gilt: Nach dem Wettbewerb ist vor dem Wettbewerb. Bereits jetzt kann jeder mit der Planung von Wiki Loves Monuments 2015 beginnen. Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß dabei wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

Kalender-Poster für 2015 mit den Gewinner-Fotos von Wiki Loves Monuments 2014

Hallo Julian Herzog,

auch in diesem Jahr gibt es dank der Förderung durch WMDE einen WLM-Kalender im Format A1 mit den Gewinner-Fotos. Insgesamt sind es mit den Nachrücker-Fotos sogar 132 Bilder von Kulturdenkmalen in Deutschland, die durch 64 WLM-Teilnehmer hochgeladen wurden. Sicherlich wirst du darin schnell Dein(e) Foto(s) entdecken.

Mit der Vergabe der 100 Preise – es gibt in diesem Jahr max. 3 Preise pro Gewinner, woraus die Nachrücker resultieren – kann jeder Preisträger auch ein oder mehrere dieser gedruckten Poster bekommen. Es wäre schön, wenn du einige Poster auch an Wikipedianer Deiner Region oder Freunde verteilst und ihnen dabei auch den Wettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments erklärst, an dem auch sie 2015 teilnehmen können.

Dieses Poster wird sowohl auf der Leipziger Denkmalmesse (6.–8.11.) als auch auf der Mitgliederversammlung von WMDE am 29.11. in Berlin erhältlich sein.

Solltest du daran Interesse haben - und weder in Leipzig noch in Berlin die Gelegenheit zum Erwerb haben -, so sende bitte Deinen Wunsch mit Angabe des Real- und Benutzernamens, der Anschrift und der gewünschten Anzahl (1,3,5 .. oder gar 10) bis zum 14.11. mit dem Betreff "WLM-Poster" an das WMDE-Team Community mittels der Emailadresse: community@wikimedia.de.

Dies gilt: solange der Vorrat reicht, nach Maßgabe des geplanten Versandkosten-Budgets sowie nach der Reihenfolge der eingegangenen Bestellwünsche. Der Versand wird Ende November erfolgen.

Viel Freude – und auch Vorfreude auf WLM-2015 - mit diesem Poster

wünscht Dir die WLM-Orga.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zur erfolgreichen Teilnahme an WLM-2014

Hallo Julian Herzog,

auf der gerade zu Ende gegangenen Europäischen Denkmal-Messe in Leipzig konnten wir sehr erfolgreich die Ergebnisse unseres vierten Fotowettbewerbs „Wiki Loves Monuments“ einem breiten Publikum und der Fachwelt vorstellen. Impressionen findest du hier. Dazu gehörten auch die Gewinnerfotos für Deutschland. Zu dem darin eingeschlossenen Wettbewerbsbeitrag von Dir möchten wir Dich herzlich beglückwünschen.

Die Jury hat bekanntlich Ende Oktober die Preisträger auf der Grundlage eines Rating-Verfahrens ermittelt und ging in diesem Jahr davon aus, die Zahl der Preise auf 3 pro Teilnehmer zu begrenzen. Insgesamt wurden 100 Preise durch WMDE gestiftet. Durch das Nachrücken ergaben sich insgesamt 132 Bilder, die auch auf dem diesjährigen WLM-Kalender für 2015 dargestellt sind. Diese wurden durch 64 Preisträger eingebracht. Im Rahmen der Denkmalmesse konnten wir bereits die ersten 11 Bildpreise und 2 Fleißpreise an vier Projektteilnehmer überreichen.

Bis Ende November werden auch die Urkunden und Preise (Büchergutscheine) für die anderen Preisträger in der Geschäftsstelle von WMDE vorbereitet; ebenso der Versand der WLM-Posterkalender, sofern du Deine Wünsche per mail übermittelt hast. Anfang Dezember und damit rechtzeitig zum Weihnachtsfest wirst du also alles erhalten.

Es würde uns sehr freuen, wenn du auch im kommenden Jahr aktiv bei WLM wieder dabei bist.

Nochmals unseren Dank für Deinen Wettbewerbsbeitrag und Herzlichen Glückwunsch

übermittelt Dir die WLM-Orga.

Dein WLM-2014-Preis zu Weihnachten

Hallo Julian Herzog,

der Fotowettbewerb "Wiki Loves Monuments 2014" liegt hinter uns und das Team Communitys von WMDE verschickt gegenwärtig an die Gewinner die Urkunden und Preise. Soweit ich weiß liegt Deine Anschrift noch nicht vor. Damit Dich aber dieser Preis rechtzeitig vor Weihnachten erreichen kann, sende doch bitte Deine Adresse mit Realnamen (und Benutzernamen zwecks Zuordnung) und Betreff "Mein WLM-Preis" so bald als möglich, spätestens bis zum Jahresende, per Email an mailto:community@wikimedia.de.

Gleichzeitig möchte ich Dich herzlich zu unserem nächsten Fotowettbewerb zum Themenbereich "Weinachtszeit, Winterzeit, Wendezeit 2014/2015" einladen. Wir haben diesen am Nikolaustag gestartet und er läuft bis zum 16. Januar 2015. Nähere Informationen findest du auf der Projektseite bei Wikipedia.

Ich wünsche Dir eine schöne Advents- und Weihnachtszeit und einen erfolgreichen Start ins neue Jahr 2015.

Herzliche Grüße
