Possible FPCsEdit

Experimenting with a permanent section on my talk page. I've opened sections at COM:CRIT in the past, but I'm uncomfortable posting there too often and/or taking up a lot of space there. So here are images I'm considering (as is or after edit) for featured picture candidates. I plan to add/remove from this section semi-regularly. If you think one is a particularly good or bad idea, or if you have thoughts about potential edits, please let me know below!

CommentsEdit

  • Thanks. Only reason I didn't nominate the Oculus before is that just after I went there, someone else submitted a picture of the same place to FPC. Figured I'd wait. Probably waited long enough now, though. :) — Rhododendrites talk |  22:15, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
  • My search for material to nominate at FPC has led me here :). I really like the cemetery with the cherry blossoms but I don't know if the FP crowd will think it has enough 'wow'. I think it's probably a 50-50 thing but I might nominate it and see how it does. I think the ones that are likeliest are to pass FPC are these three bird pics and I'd vote for any of them, but the best for me is the kestrel because it's so colourful. The other one I like is this, I know you already have an FP of this museum but this one is a bit different. Cmao20 (talk) 14:36, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Thanks, Cmao20. I appreciate the feedback. I do like the cemetery shot -- it's been in my "potential" [FP/QI/VI] category and in this section for a long time. My concern is less about "wow" than about wanting bit more sharpness?
  • I almost nominated the hummingbird before, but something about the image seemed lacking. It was an unusual gray sky that day, which I really liked while I was there but didn't turn out as well in the photo. Still, it seems a bit better than other images we have of that species. The goose is clear, gives a good view of its natural sneer, and was out of its natural habitat in Harlem Meer.</rhyme> I just expect some "distracting background" or "no wow" comments. The kestrel may work, but I'd want to do another pass at editing to do some selective denoising. — Rhododendrites talk |  15:34, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
  • The cemetery shot looks sharp enough to me, I wouldn't worry about that - it's less sharp at the corners than the centre but that's obviously normal, and the sharpness is good overall. One thing I would correct though, having a second look is that there is some blue CA on the branches at the top right. You may be right about the goose, but I think it probably stands a good chance anyway. You have my support if you choose to nominate any of these, anyway; I think I shall nominate the hummingbird myself if that's OK. Cmao20 (talk) 18:16, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
  • @Cmao20: It looks like my lightroom catalog with those modifications got lost, so I redid it and did some additional work on the CA (there was also some green CA visible along the edges of some gravestones). Uploaded. I've generally no objection to nominating anything unless it's something I want to edit first (most of the time I only upload things after editing, though). Thanks! — Rhododendrites talk |  23:29, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments in the United States 2020 – Last day to enter!Edit

 This user participated in Wiki Loves Monuments 2020.
Want to show your participation in Wiki Loves Monuments 2020? Add {{User Wiki Loves Monuments 2020}} to your userpage!

Hi there! Kevin from Wiki Loves Monuments in the United States here. I know it's been a tough year for everyone, and I hope this message finds you well.

You are receiving this message as a participant in last year's Wiki Loves Monuments 2019 in the United States. First, a recap: We concluded with over 5,200 great photos of U.S. historical sites made possible by contributors like you. If you haven't yet seen, last year's U.S. winners are viewable here, and the international winners here (including multiple from the United States!).

Second, as you may have seen from the banner notices on Wikipedia, this year's Wiki Loves Monuments 2020 in the United States has been running through October instead of September in consideration of the pandemic and the hectic start of the fall season. Despite the challenges of the year, we're thrilled that the United States has surpassed 5,000 photo contributions so far.

October 31st is the last day to upload photos for the U.S. competition this year. If you've already contributed, thank you so much - and it's great to have you again this year! If you haven't yet contributed but are interested in participating again, you're invited to join us during these last couple days. Check out the United States event page for more information. Remember that you are welcome to upload and submit photos of historic sites that you've taken any time in the past, not just this month.

As always, thank you for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments! If you'd like to respond to this message directly, please do so on on my talk page. ~Kevin Payravi (talk) 07:21, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
