Category: Cloud-to-cloud lightningEdit

How did you infer it for File:120516-N-UM734-1066 (7243619354).jpg? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 17:13, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

  • There is no indication that the lightning is touching the surface of the sea. So it cannot be cloud-to-ground.
  • The source is somehere above the ship structure but is not visible as one can juge by the brightness there and the branching of the lightning to the left.
  • One can see that the lightning extend well beyond the generating cloud laterally too. So it cannot be in-cloud lightning.
  • The description of the image says that the lightning is "over the amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge".
Unless you have more information than the image can provide, cloud-to-clouds is the best that can be inferred.

The surface of the sea? Should it, really, if the ship itself is a decent conductor? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 18:23, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
  • @Incnis Mrsi: This has nothing to do with the conducting property of the ship (which are good) compared to the sea. The lightning is clearly heading away from the ship: look at the branches that diverge toward the left. There is no indication that the ship was touched in the description ... "over the amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge". Pierre cb (talk) 18:29, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
Unsure what means you are in meteorology, but “lightning is heading away” is not a serious description. A lightning connects two spatial regions having a high voltage between them. It may have branches, and some of them have direction far from vertical (look at File:CG lightning strike.JPG for example). The “branches that diverge toward the left” lead to a cloud under a high voltage. The other end of the lightning is obscured by interposing ship structures and may lie out of the frame even if the lightning strikes the ship. Conducting properties of the ship, indeed, are very important because a lightning strike doesn’t cause significant damage, or even observable effects, on thick metal-grade conductors (unlike such materials as carbon fibre). Hence, I suggest to leave the navy image in Lightning although will not wage a war over it. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:12, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: The category "Lightning" is a mother category and should be kept empty, all images transferred toward sub-categories, otherwise it will be overflowing in no time. You may not like my vocabulary but it is adapted to the description, maybe would have like that I use "leads" instead of "branches" but I will not rewrite here all the theory of lightning propagation. Cloud-to-cloud category is the best with the indications available on the photo, as I said in my first intervention. One cannot deduce more than the image shows and its description says.

File:Monté Cinto Corse vu de Nice.jpgEdit

Bonjour Monsieur je souhaite savoir pourquoi vous avez indiqué la photo en catégorie Haze in France alors que le but est d illustrer la portée visuelle ou la visibilité quand il y a justement un air très sec permettant d avoir des visibilités de plus de 150km, soit l inverse de la brume que vous proposez. Il s'agit d un phénomène météo rare en fin de journée et je propose de le catégoriser en méteorologie .merci de votre retour.Cordialement--Aeroceanaute (talk) 07:01, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Category:Meteorology est une catégorie-mère qui doit être la plus libre possible. Il faut donc reclasser dans des sous-catégories pertinentes. Je n'ai aucune idée de la distance entre le point de prise de vue et les montagnes de la Corse mais celles-ci semblent un peu voilées, la brume sèche (Haze) donne cet effet. C'est pourquoi je l'ai mise dans la catégorie "Haze in France". Si vous me dites que la distance est de plus de 40 km, je vais transférer dans une autre sous-catégorie. Pierre cb (talk) 16:20, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
Bonjour Monsieur talk

oui la distance ente Nice et le monté cinto est d environ 200km ce qui est exceptionnel: voici d autres exemples relaté dans la presse : https://france3-regions.francetvinfo.fr/corse/haute-corse/superbe-photo-corse-prise-nice-etait-mirage-1211001.html le voile est essentiellement du à la qualité de la photo et la lumière du soleil qui se réflete sur la très faible brume sèche qui s'étends sur les 200km.

apr contre il ne s agit aps d un mirage mais bien de portée visuelle car la photo a été prise à 300m d altitude et le bas de la côte corse est autour de 700 m d altitude , d autre artices ont corrigé cette erreur technique.

Salut,

tu as remis le fichier Hermannstadt, DFDH, Windfahne, 1.jpeg à la catégorie Wrought iron weather vanes. Bien que la giruouette soit probablement de fer je ne crois pas qu'elle soit de fer forgé; elle me parait de fer découpé. Qu'est-ce que tu en penses?

You moved the file Hermannstadt, DFDH, Windfahne, 1.jpeg to the category Wrought iron weather vanes. Although the vane is probably made of iron I don't think it is of wrought iron; it looks more like punched iron. What do you think?

The Lake Champlain - Richelieu River mapEdit

This map is inaccurate. Richelieu River is indeed finishing at Sorel but further North, in front of an island where the St Lawrence River is getting larger to become Lake St. Peter. Richelieu River is not turning left but going further North where Sorel is really located. Signed: François Lafrenière, secratary of the Richelieu Valley Historical Society (Société d'histoire de la Vallée du Richelieu). e-mail: lafrenierefrancois@yahoo.ca

HELP!Edit

  • Hello Pierre,

I am having a big problem with this file: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Lucerne_Valley,_California_(14331056130).jpg I cleaned it up, but the site wouldn't let me upload it, and yes, I was doing it correctly. Now, it will not let me revert the fixed one that I finally got up there. Please revert to the obvious fixed photo that was done at 10:58. No matter what I do, the site tells me it already reverted it to the 10:58 version, but actually, it is showing the 11:19 version. Thanks in advance. Jessie Eastland (talk) 18:34, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

@Jessie Eastland: There is no version with the time you mention. However, the actual version seems fine to me, cleared of haze. You might have been too much in a hurry to see your revert. If you are still not happy with it, you just have to upload again the version you want with the function "Import a new version" and when it is done, be sure to update your browser to clear its cache. Pierre cb (talk) 22:30, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Thanks buddy. All of a sudden 11.19 is a fixed version. You are right, the time that I mentioned (10:58) has disappeared (very strange)...lol. Pierre, I have been on this site one way or another for a decade. I know how to exchange a photo. Perhaps the 10mb size of my fix was too much for the server yesterday, and some admin noticed the mess, and made the needed adjustments. It's still a mess there. All of my failed uploads are there as versions now. Oh well, as long as the fixed version is up there in the number 1 slot, I'm happy. Thanks. Jessie Eastland (talk) 17:58, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Just so you don't think I am hallucinating, here is the 10:58 that disappeared. It's in history:
