Featured picture candidates


FPCandiateicon.svg

Featured picture candidates are images that the community will vote on, to determine whether or not they will be highlighted as some of the finest on Commons. This page lists the candidates to become featured pictures. The picture of the day images are selected from featured pictures.

Old candidates for Featured pictures are listed here. There are also chronological lists of featured pictures: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and current month.

For another overview of our finest pictures, take a look at our annual picture of the year election.

Formal things[edit]

Nominating[edit]

Guidelines for nominators[edit]

Please read the complete guidelines before nominating.

This is a summary of what to look for when submitting and reviewing FP candidates:

  • Licensing – Images licensed with solely "GFDL" or "GFDL and an NC-only license" are not acceptable due the restrictions placed on re-use by these licenses.
  • Resolution – Raster images of lower resolution than 2 million pixels (pixels, not bytes) are typically rejected unless there are strong mitigating reasons. This does not apply to vector graphics (SVGs).
    • Graphics on Commons are not only viewed on conventional computer screens. They may be used in high-resolution print versions, and the images may be cropped to focus on portions of the image. See Commons:Why we need high resolution media for more information.
  • Scans – While not official policy, Help:Scanning provides advice on the preparation of various types of images that may be useful.
  • General quality – pictures being nominated should be of high technical quality.
  • Digital manipulations must not deceive the viewer. Digital manipulation for the purpose of correcting flaws in an image is generally acceptable, provided it is limited, well-done, and not intended to deceive.
    • For photographs, typical acceptable manipulations include cropping, perspective correction, sharpening/blurring, and color/exposure correction. More extensive manipulations, such as removal of distracting background elements, should be clearly described in the image text, by means of the {{Retouched picture}} template. Undescribed or mis-described manipulations which cause the main subject to be misrepresented are never acceptable. For images made from more than one photo, you can use the {{Panorama}} or {{Focus stacked image}} templates.
    • For historic images, acceptable manipulations might include digitally fixing rips, removal of stains, cleanup of dirt, and, for mass-produced artworks such as engravings, removal of flaws inherent to the particular reproduction, such as over-inking. Careful color adjustments may be used to bring out the original work from the signs of ageing, though care should be taken to restore a natural appearance. The original artistic intent should be considered when deciding whether it is appropriate to make a change. Edits to historic material should be documented in detail within the file description, and an unedited version should be uploaded and cross linked for comparison.
  • Valueour main goal is to feature most valuable pictures from all others. Pictures should be in some way special, so please be aware that:
    • almost all sunsets are aesthetically pleasing, and most such pictures are not in essence different from others,
    • night-shots are pretty but normally more details can be shown on pictures taken at daytime,
    • beautiful does not always mean valuable.
Artworks, illustrations, and historical documents[edit]

There are many different types of non-photographic media, including engravings, watercolors, paintings, etchings, and various others. Hence, it is difficult to set hard-and-fast guidelines. However, generally speaking, works can be divided into three types: Those that can be scanned, those that must be photographed, and those specifically created to illustrate a subject.

Works that must be photographed include most paintings, sculptures, works too delicate or too unique to allow them to be put on a scanner, and so on. For these, the requirements for photography, below, may be mostly followed; however, it should be noted that photographs which cut off part of the original painting are generally not considered featurable.

Works that may be scanned include most works created by processes that allow for mass distribution − for instance, illustrations published with novels. For these, it is generally accepted that a certain amount of extra manipulation is permissible to remove flaws inherent to one copy of the work, since the particular copy – of which hundreds, or even thousands of copies also exist – is not so important as the work itself.

Works created to serve a purpose include diagrams, scientific illustrations, and demonstrations of contemporary artistic styles. For these, the main requirement is that they serve their purpose well.

Provided the reproduction is of high quality, an artwork generally only needs one of the following four things to be featurable:

  • Notable in its own right: Works by major artists, or works that are otherwise notable, such as the subjects of a controversy.
  • Of high artistic merit: Works which, while not particularly well known, are nonetheless wonderful examples of their particular type or school of art.
  • Of high historic merit: The historical method values very early illustrations of scenes and events over later ones. Hence, a work of poor quality depicting a contemporaneous historical event can be nonetheless important, even if the artistic merit is relatively low. Likewise, scans or photographs of important documents – which may not be at all artistic – nonetheless may be highly valuable if the documents are historically significant. The reason for the image's historical importance should be briefly stated in the nomination, for those reviewers unfamiliar with the subject.
  • Of high illustrative merit: Works that illustrate or help explain notable subjects, for instance, illustrations of books, scientific subjects, or technical processes. The amount of artistic merit required for these will vary by subject, but, for instance, an illustration that makes the working of a complicated piece of machinery very clear need not be notable as a piece of artwork as well, whereas an illustration for a book might well be expected to reach much higher artistic standards.

Digital restorations must also be well documented. An unedited version of the image should be uploaded locally, when possible, and cross-linked from the file description page. Edit notes should be specified in detail, such as "Rotated and cropped. Dirt, scratches, and stains removed. Histogram adjusted and colors balanced."

Photographs[edit]

On the technical side, we have focus, exposure, composition, movement control and depth of field.

  • Focus – every important object in the picture should normally be sharp.
  • Exposure refers to the shutter diaphragm combination that renders an image with a tonal curve that ideally is able to represent in acceptable detail shadows and highlights within the image. This is called latitude. Images can be on the low side of the tonal curve (low range), the middle (middle range) or high side (upper range). Lack of shadow detail is not necessarily a negative characteristic. In fact, it can be part of the desired effect. Burned highlights in large areas are a distracting element.
  • Composition refers to the arrangement of the elements within the image. The "Rule of thirds" is one useful guideline. Horizons should almost never be placed in the middle, where they "cut" the image in half. Often, a horizon creating a top or bottom third of the space works better. The main idea is to use space to create a dynamic image.
    • Foreground and background – foreground and background objects may be distracting. You should check that something in front of the subject doesn't hide important elements and that something in background doesn't spoil the composition (for example that the streetlight doesn't "stand" on someone's head).
  • Movement control refers to the manner in which motion is represented in the image. Motion can be frozen or blurred. Neither one is better than the other. It is the intention of representation. Movement is relative within the objects of the image. For example, photographing a race car that appears frozen in relation to the background does not give us a sense of speed or motion, so technique dictates to represent the car in a frozen manner but with a blurred background, thus creating the sense of motion, this is called "panning". On the other hand, representing a basketball player in a high jump frozen in relation to everything else, due to the "unnatural" nature of the pose would be a good photograph.
  • Depth of field (DOF) refers to the area in focus in front of and beyond main subject. Depth of field is chosen according to the specific needs of every picture. Large or small DOF can either way add or subtract to the quality of the image. Low depth of field can be used to bring attention to the main subject, separating it from the general environment. High depth of field can be used to emphasize space. Short focal length lenses (wide angles) yield large DOF, and vice versa, long focal lenses (telephotos) have shallow DOF. Small apertures yield large DOF and conversely, large apertures yield shallow DOF.

On the graphic elements we have shape, volume, color, texture, perspective, balance, proportion, noise, etc.

  • Shape refers to the contour of the main subjects.
  • Volume refers to the three dimensional quality of the object. This is accomplished using side light. Contrary to general belief, front lighting is not the best light. It tends to flatten subject. Best light of day is early morning or late afternoon.
  • Color is important. Over saturated colors are not good.
  • Texture refers to the quality of the surface of the subject. It is enhanced by side lighting… it is the "feel" to the touch.
  • Perspective refers to the "angle" accompanied by lines that disappear into a vanishing point that may or may not be inside the image.
  • Balance refers to the arrangement of subjects within the image that can either give equal weight or appear to be heavier on one side.
  • Proportion refers to the relation of size of objects in picture. Generally, we tend to represent small objects small in relation to others, but a good technique is to represent small objects large contrary to natural size relationship. For example, a small flower is given preponderance over a large mountain…. This is called inversion of scales.
Not all elements must be present. Some photographs can be judged on individual characteristics, that is, an image can be about color or texture, or color AND texture, etc.
  • Noise refers to unwanted corruption of color brightness and quality and can be caused by underexposure. It is not a desirable quality and can be grounds for opposition.
  • Symbolic meaning or relevance … Opinion wars can begin here … A bad picture of a very difficult subject is better than a good picture of an ordinary subject. A good picture of a difficult subject is an extraordinary photograph.
Images can be culturally biased by the photographer and/or the observer. The meaning of the image should be judged according to the cultural context of the image, not by the cultural context of the observer. An image "speaks" to people, and it has the capacity to evoke emotion such as tenderness, rage, rejection, happiness, sadness, etc. Good photographs are not limited to evoking pleasant sensations …

You will maximise the chances of your nominations succeeding if you read the complete guidelines before nominating.

Video and audio[edit]

Please nominate videos, sounds, music, etc. at Commons:Featured media candidates.

Set nominations[edit]

If a group of images are thematically connected in a direct and obvious way, they can be nominated together as a set. A set should fall under one of the following types:

  • Faithful digital reproductions of works notable in their own right, which the original author clearly intended to be viewed as a set. Examples: pages in a pamphlet, crops (puzzle pieces) of a prohibitively large scan, a pair of pendant paintings. Not acceptable: Arbitrary selection of sample works by an artist.
  • A sequence of images showing the passage of time. They could depict frames of a moving/changing object or a static object during different times of day or different seasons. Examples: diagrams illustrating a process, steps of a dance, metamorphosis of an insect, maps/drawings/photos of the same subject over the years (frame of view should be more or less the same).
  • A group of images depicting the same subject from different viewpoints, preferably taken under the same lighting conditions when possible. Examples: Exterior and interior of a building, different facades of a building, different interior views, obverse and inverse of a banknote/coin. Not acceptable: A selection of different rooms in a skyscraper, the facade of a church plus an organ, any images of fundamentally different scopes.
  • A group of images which show all possible variations of a particular class of object. Examples: Male and female versions of an animal (preferably in the same setting), all known species of a genus. Not acceptable: A few breeds of cats (unless they share a defining characteristic and represent all possible examples of that).

Adding a new nomination[edit]

If you believe that you have found or created an image that could be considered valuable, with appropriate image description and licensing, then do the following.

Step 1: copy the image name into this box, after the text already present in the box, for example, Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Your image filename.jpg. Then click on the "create new nomination" button.

All single files:

For renominations, simply add /2 after the filename. For example, Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Foo.jpg/2

All set nomination pages should begin "Commons:Featured picture candidates/Set/", e.g. "Commons:Featured picture candidates/Set/My Nomination".


Step 2: follow the instructions on the page that you are taken to, and save that page.

Step 3: manually insert a link to the created page at the top of Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list: Click here, and add the following line to the TOP of the nominations list:

{{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Your image filename.jpg}}

Strongly recommended: Please add a gallery page and section heading from the list at Commons FP galleries. Write the code as Page name#Section heading. For example: Commons:Featured pictures/Sports#Individual sports

Optional: if you are not the creator of the image, please notify him/her using {{subst:FPC-notice|Your image filename.jpg}} -- ~~~~.

Note: Do not add an 'Alternative' image when you create a nomination. Selecting the best image is part of the nomination process. Alternatives are for different crops or post-processing of the original image, if they are suggested by voters.

Voting[edit]

Editors whose accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. Everybody can vote for their own nominations. Anonymous (IP) votes are not allowed.

You may use the following templates:

  • {{Support}} (Symbol support vote.svg Support),
  • {{Oppose}} (Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose),
  • {{Neutral}} (Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral),
  • {{Comment}} (Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment),
  • {{Info}} (Pictogram voting info.svg Info),
  • {{Question}} (Pictogram-voting-question.svg Question),
  • {{Request}} (Pictogram voting question-blue.svg Request).

You may indicate that the image has no chance of success with the template {{FPX|reason - ~~~~}}, where reason explains why the image is clearly unacceptable as a FP. The template can only be used when there are no support votes other than the one from the nominator.

A well-written review helps participants (photographers, nominators and reviewers) improve their skills by providing insight into the strengths and weaknesses of a picture. Explain your reasoning, especially when opposing a candidate (which has been carefully selected by the author/nominator). English is the most widely understood language on Commons, but any language may be used in your review. A helpful review will often reference one or more of the criteria listed above.

Unhelpful reasons for opposing include:

  • No reason
  • "I don't like it" and other empty assessments
  • "You can do better" and other criticisms of the author/nominator rather than the image

Remember also to put your signature (~~~~).

Featured picture delisting candidates[edit]

Over time, featured picture standards change. It may be decided that for some pictures which were formerly "good enough", this is no longer the case. This is for listing an image which you believe no longer deserves to be a featured picture. For these, vote:

Text to use Displays as Meaning
{{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep It deserves to remain a featured picture
{{Delist}} Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist It does not deserve to be a featured picture anymore.

This can also be used for cases in which a previous version of an image was promoted to FP, but a newer version of the image has been made and is believed to be superior to the old version, e.g. a newly edited version of a photo or a new scan of a historical image. In particular, it is not intended for replacing older photos of a particular subject with newer photos of the same subject, or in any other case where the current FP and the proposed replacement are essentially different images. For these nominations, vote:

Text to use Displays as Meaning
{{Keep}} Symbol keep vote.svg Keep Do not replace the old image with the new image as a FP.
{{Delistandreplace}} Symbol redirect vote.svg Delist and replace Replace the current FP with the proposed replacement.

If you believe that some picture no longer meets the criteria for FP, you can nominate it for delisting, copying the image name into this box, after the text already present in the box:


In the new delisting nomination page just created you should include:

  • Information on the origin of the image (creator, uploader);
  • A link to the original FP nomination (it will appear under "Links" on the image description page);
  • Your reasons for nominating the image and your username.

After that, you have to manually insert a link to the created page at the top of Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list.

As a courtesy, leave an informative note on the talk page(s) of the original creator, uploader(s), and nominator with a link to the delisting candidate. {{subst:FPC-notice-removal}} can be used for this purpose.

Featured picture candidate policy[edit]

General rules[edit]

  1. The voting period is 9 complete days counted from the nomination. After the end of this period the result will be determined. Votes added on day 10 and after are not counted.
  2. Nominations by anonymous contributors are welcome
  3. Contributions to discussion by anonymous contributors are welcome
  4. Only registered contributors whose Commons accounts have at least 10 days and 50 edits can vote. Exception: registered users can always vote in their own nominations no matter the account age and number of edits.
  5. Nominations do not count as votes. Support must be explicitly stated.
  6. Nominators and authors can withdraw their nominated pictures at any time. This is done by adding the following template: {{Withdraw}} ~~~~. Also, remember that if more than one version is nominated, you should explicitly state which version you are withdrawing.
  7. Remember, the goal of the Wikimedia Commons project is to provide a central repository for free images to be used by all Wikimedia projects, including possible future projects. This is not simply a repository for Wikipedia images, so images should not be judged here on their suitability for that project.
  8. Rules of the 5th day based on vote counts on day number 5 (day of nomination + 5)
    1. Pictures are speedy declined if they have no support (apart from the nominator).
    2. Pictures are speedy promoted if they have 10 support votes or more and no oppose votes. (Note that if it takes more than five days to reach this threshold, the picture can be promoted as soon as it is reached.)
    3. Once either speedy criterion is reached, the voting period is considered closed, and no more votes may be added.
  9. Pictures tagged {{FPX}} may be removed from the list 24 hours after the tag was applied, provided there are no support votes other than that of the nominator.
  10. Pictures tagged {{FPD}} (FP-Denied) may be removed from the list 24 hours after the tag was applied.
  11. Only two active nominations by the same user (that is, nominations under review and not yet closed) are allowed. The main purpose of this measure is to contribute to a better average quality of nominations, by driving nominators/creators to choose carefully the pictures presented to the forum.

Featuring and delisting rules[edit]

A candidate will become a featured picture in compliance with following conditions:

  1. Appropriate license (of course)
  2. At least seven Symbol support vote.svg Support votes (or 7 Symbol oppose vote.svg Delist votes for a delist) at the end of nine days
  3. Ratio of supporting/opposing votes at least 2/1 (a two-thirds majority); same for delist/keep votes
  4. Two different versions of the same picture cannot both be featured, but only the one with higher level of support, as determined by the closer. Whenever the closer is not sure which version has consensus to be featured, he/she should attempt to contact the voters to clarify their opinions if not clear from the nomination page.

The delisting rules are the same as those for FPs, with voting taking place over the same time period. The rule of the 5th day is applied to delisting candidates that have received no votes to delist, other than that of the proposer, by day 5. There is also a limit of two active delisting nominations per user, which is in addition to the limit of two active regular nominations.

The FPCBot handles the vote counting and closing in most cases, current exceptions are candidates containing multiple versions of the image as well as FPXed and withdrawn nominations. Any experienced user may close the requests not handled by the bot. For instructions on how to close nominations, see Commons:Featured picture candidates/What to do after voting is finished. Also note that there is a manual review stage between when the bot has counted the votes and before the nomination is finally closed by the bot; this manual review can be done by any user familiar with the voting rules.

Above all, be polite[edit]

Please don't forget that the image you are judging is somebody's work. Avoid using phrases like "it looks terrible" and "I hate it". If you must oppose, please do so with consideration. Also remember that your command of English might not be the same as someone else's. Choose your words with care.

Happy judging… and remember... all rules can be broken.

Table of contents[edit]

List may contain works considered Not Safe for Work (nudity).

Nominators are requested, out of courtesy, to include the {{Nsfw}} template with such images. Users may select the gadget in user preferences "Deferred display of images tagged with {{Nsfw}} on COM:FPC" to enable the template's effect of hiding the image until selected.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Nicely framed photo (between the two lampposts) that shows the grandiose architecture of the entrance very well. At first the distorted statues in the top corners disturbed me but it's always the case when photographing architecture that you can only stand so far back and you have to make compromises to get everything in the frame, overall that's OK for me.

  • BA candidate.svg Weak oppose Great shot, but there are some subtleties that make it look somewaht awkward to me. 1) The perspective has been over-corrected to the point that verticals are actually leaning out at the edges of the frame. That is amplified by all those clues in the image that tell me that I'm actually close to the building looking upwards (e.g. I can see the undersides of the platforms the statues stand on), suggesting that those verticals should actually converge at least a little bit towards the top for them to be credible. Just to be clear: I'm OK with some things in the corners being somewhat distorted (that is impossible to avoid here) – it is the way how they are distorted that does not work for me. 2) The textures of surfaces look soft, while high-contrast edges are close to being over-sharpened. --El Grafo (talk) 09:08, 11 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Male 12 cm (4.7 in)-long five-spotted wrasse (Symphodus roissali) finalizing his nest during breeding season (typically from April to July), which will be offered to females so that they can spawn in there, Arrábida Natural Park, Portugal. This species of wrasse are native to the eastern Atlantic Ocean from the Bay of Biscay to Morocco and through the coastal waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea. It inhabits rocky areas usually within beds of at depths from up to 1 to 30 m (3.3 to 98.4 ft). It can reach 17 cm (6.7 in) in standard length, though usually not more than 12 cm (4.7 in) and feeds on molluscs, bivalves, gastropods, shrimps, sea-urchins and hydroids. If the male finds a female spawing in the nest he will then keep watch until the eclosion. c/u/n by Poco a poco (talk) 22:12, 8 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Gallery: Commons:Featured_pictures/Astronomy#Nebulae
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info First of all please note that this is not a space agency photo from Hubble or similar, it is amateur astrophotography from a user with an account on Commons. As such I think it's outstanding, it can't match the sharpness of NASA photos obviously but it's really incredible work anyway and to me deserves the star for being a beautiful, high-resolution, high-quality photo. The subject is the Heart Nebula in the constellation of Cassiopeia, which currently has no FPs. The author has provided considerable detail on the hardware and software used as well as his own interesting personal reflections on the technical challenges.

IC 1805 is not a number generated by the camera, it is the reference of the Heart Nebula in the Index Catalogue, which is one of the two major catalogues astronomers use to refer to objects in the deep sky (because colloquial names such as 'Heart Nebula' are often inconsistently used). The other is the New General Catalogue. As for the other numbers in the title, they seem to be part of the author's personal code for technical information, and they correspond to data in the image description.

The small cloud at the upper center disappears, and the horizon line is more in the middle. Your preferences totally make sense and I respect them to the point of hesitating to upload this new version. However, I also like the chaotic or random aspect of the sky in the current file. I find it wilder and perhaps other people share my feeling. Since 12 other reviewers already supported this version, I must admit I'm also a bit reluctant to survey them for a second look, that could lead to different appreciations :-) Thus I keep this 3:2 ratio, while being very grateful for sharing your constructive feedbacks -- Basile Morin (talk) 00:23, 10 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Domob (talk) 09:05, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It's a very nice catch, but I don't think it needed a bended panorama here. Given that you used Hugin, you can probably reprocess and try with a straight projection like "rectilinear", or "panini general"? Just my two cents. There's a lot of chroma artifacts that I'd attribute to the demosaicing process? It doesn't look like NR. And I would also recommend you don't stop down this much on your camera. f/8 is a rule of thumb for landscape photos on full frames. But the equivalent on a micro four third is f/4 (crop factor of 2). Here, it's as if you took a picture @f/16 (on FF) which affects IQ quite a lot to some extent. - Benh (talk) 12:20, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
✓ Done Good point. The full panorama spans 145 degrees horizontally, so I was under the impression that a rectlinear projection would not look very well; but I've now played around a bit with it and the relative positioning of the castle, and think the new version is definitely better. Thanks for the other feedback as well! I'm aware of the relation of f-values on my sensor, but thought that usually f/11 or higher is used on fullframe for landscapes (and was usually satisfied with f/8 for my camera, without noticing too much diffraction) -- I'll keep that in mind and try out changes in the future. Is there anything specifically you suggest I could do in post processing about the artefacts you see? --Domob (talk) 16:02, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment In the first version, the roof line of the main building was falling off towards the left, which made sense given the perspective. In the second version it is falling off towards the center of the image, which does not make any sense to me at all. Maybe just aim for it to be horizontal? --El Grafo (talk) 16:33, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment That's an interesting observation, and it does indeed look a bit weird. I've aimed for the verticals to be correct, rather than horizontal lines in the perspective. I tried playing around with the roof as well, but wasn't able to produce anything that looked more realistic or better. After checking back on the map, I actually think that this view is the correct perspective, and the castle is sloping away from the viewer towards the centre in reality. --Domob (talk) 17:55, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • I agree with @El Grafo and, that's an easy fix. In Hugin, you go to preview, and then "move/Drag" and move it until you are satisfied with the roof line. You can hold Ctrl or Shift (forgot) to drag along a single axis (so you will keep ur verticals). Another way is to set horizontal guidelines, but that would force you to redo your panorama from scratch AFAIK. - Benh (talk) 18:05, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I tried that (including setting horizontal control points). The effect is that the forest on the right is extremely distorted. If you check on the map (e.g. OpenStreetMap), you will see that the castle is actually for real moving backwards in relation to the line of the forest on the right, so with a composition like the one in the picture (viewing towards the centre between castle and forest) it is expected that the perspective is as it is. --Domob (talk) 18:13, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • El Grafo: perspective along the roof on this is much more natural. --Ivar (talk) 09:55, 11 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • The difference between those two pictures is the direction in which the camera is pointing (or the "virtual" direction based on the panorama projection). In the picture you linked, the direction is more orthogonal to the building, while in the panorama it has some angle (the building is sloping away from the viewer towards the centre), which leads to this perspective. I can totally see how it looks "weird", though (but as far as I can tell, it is natural in this case). --Domob (talk) 10:01, 11 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Benh: At approximately 3,000 px high (12 MP), I don't think f/16 FF has any noticeable impact on IQ. It's only on high-resolution sensors that diffraction starts to kick in at the pixel level. The blur on the edges looks like lens imperfections, but since it's already stopped down to f/8 I think this is just the best the lens is capable of producing. -- King of ♥ 18:36, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • @King of Hearts, you are right, it's probably not very noticeable, but I'm fairly sure the sweet spot is at around f/4 (the sweet spot is often around f/8 in FF equiv.). So might as well use it here where DOF is not really an issue. That was more a general advice, because I see there's a lot of confusion of these equivalences between camera formats. I updated my comment. I wasn't talking about the blur on the edges but more about the weird chroma speckles along the edges (excuse my english). Maybe it's the demosaicing or just that Domob was light on chroma NR. anyways, who cares? It's more than good enough qualitywise. - Benh (talk) 20:26, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Unfortunately, you have set very high standards of moody landscapes with great lighting, and I don't quite see that here. The lighting is dull, the sky overexposed, and the centered framing would work better for me if it weren't for the busy background. I don't think f/16 was necessary either. Aside of reviewing matters, may I suggest you use this photo as leading picture of the en:The_Ladd_Company article ? ;) - Benh (talk) 12:32, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info This picture shows the perfect balance of a TF drag bike: the front wheel is in the air, the "wheeliebars" (a support structure that prevents the rollover backwards) do not touch the ground and cannot impair the driving dynamics through the leverage.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry I have never found these extreme ratios panorama useful nor aesthetically pleasing to the eye. They cannot really be enjoyed "as a coherent single thing" and if they are to be browsed, then they fall short compared to spherical panoramas. Most of the scene is also in the shade, making for a not so eye catching sight. - Benh (talk) 21:50, 3 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I do take Benh's point, 360 degree panoramas are not my favourite either, but this is so fun to explore in full size, and although a lot of it is in shade, I do still find it has the wow-factor. Cmao20 (talk) 01:24, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    • I think we say the same thing, but just to be clear, spherical panos are also 360. Just they are 360x180° so, while they are not so enjoyable to look at in their entirety, they provide much more immersion with a proper viewer. - Benh (talk) 08:12, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Agree with Benh. Two problems: 1) Too much is in the shade, and 2) my appreciation of landscapes in general is not compatible with such long long formats. I think because the pleasure of the eyes is to be able to circulate through a picture. When you shrink that much a scenery, the sight gets blocked: the eyes just go left or right, but not up and down, through the content. Unless you zoom very big, such extreme ratios are not aesthetic, in my opinion. However the major problem is definitely the light, and it's visible from the thumbnail: there are only two tiny parts of sunny areas : one at the left and another one at the center. The whole rest is darkness. No light in a photograph = no wow. Sorry -- Basile Morin (talk) 01:37, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It is fun to explore, but not particularly striking with the shadows. I also prefer sphericals, although they are of course not always possible (and sometimes they are mostly boring sky and ground, so perhaps in this case the format you chose is better suited). --Domob (talk) 09:12, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Yes, most of it is fairly dark, but there are some light patches. I think that the combination makes this an excellent photo. (I readily admit that I'm a big fan of panoramics.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by MartinD (talk • contribs)

SHORT DESCRIPTION

  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info created and uploaded by Pablo Carlos Budassi - nominated by IamMM -- IamMM (talk) 06:49, 3 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- IamMM (talk) 06:49, 3 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Very interesting and elaborate image, I'd really like to understand it. Pablo Carlos Budassi as your representation of the universe is centered on the Earth (per your description) I would have expected the Earth in the middle with the (minimal or average?) distance of all other planets and celestial bodies to it. Otherweise, I'd have expected that planets that are further from the Earth are depicted further from the Earth than those that are closer. E.g. Neptune is further from the Earth than Saturn is but in the image it's closer to the Earth. Finally I'm not sure about the benefit from having all those annotations in the description page as it's redundant to the information already provided in the image. Poco a poco (talk) 08:45, 3 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    @Poco a poco: I should mention that there is also another version of this image in the form of a circle and a white background, the elements of which have different dimensions. I put it as an alternative.--IamMM (talk) 15:03, 3 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Thanks for the alt, IamMM, the questions above still remain. It wasn't my intention to discourage other reviewers with my questions, I just wanted to understand what I look at. If somebody else apart from the author can give a hint with regards to my questions above, I'd be very thankful. --Poco a poco (talk) 15:17, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Same questions here as Poco. It’s nice but beyond that I cannot see any scientific value here. Neither directions, nor distances, nor size proportions do match, and our own Milky Way is surely not as far away as the Andromeda galaxy, which is certainly a bit further off than the asteroid belt :) & the distant galaxies do not line up into filaments as the picture suggests, and so on. For me, this is just a nice artistic composition of celestial bodies arranged around the sun with no further meaning. --Kreuzschnabel 19:06, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    @Kreuzschnabel and Poco a poco: Incorporating the entire universe into a digital image is, of course, a matter of controversy and the only one who can give an accurate answer to these issues is the creator. I don't agree that this is just an artistic image, by the way for me this is one of the few times that I have prioritized the scientific value of the image instead of artistic beauty and also different versions of this image have been used to create a better understanding the Universe article in different WP languages. In a visual logarithmic function, creating proportions between the sizes of objects that can pose serious challenges. For example in the solar system, Jupiter is 24,000 times larger than Mercury and it's practically impossible to create a real ratio. This is also the case in geographical maps. IMO considering the position and distance of the Triangulum galaxy with the Milky Way and Andromeda, the creator tried to show the correct distance and ratio of the three main galaxies of the Local Group.
    Sorry for the possible spelling mistakes. --IamMM (talk) 11:06, 5 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The annotations are unhelpful and unnecessary because the heavenly bodies are all named in the image and the annotations are way too close together for people to make a lot of sense out of them at thumbnail size. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:02, 8 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

St. Julian Church, Setúbal, Portugal
  • Gallery: Commons:Featured pictures/Places/Interiors/Religious buildings/Ceilings#Portugal
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Ceiling of St.Julian's Church, in Portuguese "Igreja de São Julião", located on the centric Praça de Bocage (town hall quare), Setúbal, Portugal. The church was originally built in the second half of the 13th century in medieval style and was rebuilt at the beginning of the 16th century by order of King Manuel I in Manueline style. In 1531 a strong earthquake struck Setúbal and the church was damaged; the building was considerably modified in Mannerist style and reinaugurated in 1570. The original church was almost completely destroyed by the Great Earthquake of 1755 and was greatly rebuilt and redecorated in the last third of the 18th century following the late Baroque style. From this stage date the general appearance of the façade, the inner wooden roof, the painted tiles, the main and lateral altarpieces and the main chapel. The nave of the church is divided in three aisles by arches built during the Mannerist repair works following the 1531 earthquake. The columns are decorated in talha dourada (a typical Portuguese technique to decorate woodwork with gold leaves). Today it is the main church (matriz) of the city classified as National Monument in 1910. c/u/n by Poco a poco (talk) 18:53, 2 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

SHORT DESCRIPTION
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I see this as a kind of vanitas still life. The inscription with the name of the windmill is very appropriate for this – “hoop” could be translated as “hope”, right? The clogs placed on the top and on the right are somewhat odd, but complete the still life. They seem to say: “Stranger, once living people like you walked in these clogs and run that mill which was called ‘Hope’ and indeed was a flourishing trade in its time; now they are all dead and gone, their hope has been scattered, just like you, your hopes and fears will vanish and die.” ;–) --Aristeas (talk) 10:48, 2 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Closing a featured picture promotion request[edit]

The bot[edit]

Note that the description below is for manual closure, this is mostly not needed anymore as there exists a bot (FPCBot) that counts the votes and handles the process below. However after the bot has counted the votes a manual review step is used to make sure the count is correct before the bot again picks up the work.

Manual procedure[edit]

Any experienced user may close requests.

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    Add the result of the voting at the bottom (on a new line with a space first)
    {{FPC-results-reviewed|support=x|oppose=x|neutral=x|featured=("yes" or "no")|gallery=xxx (leave blank if "featured=no")|sig=~~~~}}
    (for example see Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:The Bridge (August 2013).jpg). See also {{FPC-results-reviewed}}.
  2. Also edit the title of the candidate image template and add after the image tag
    featured or not featured
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] ===
    becomes
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], featured ===
  3. Save your edit.
  4. If it is featured:
    • Add the picture to the list of the four most recently featured pictures of an appropriate gallery of Commons:Featured pictures, list as the first one and delete the last one, so that the number is four again.
    • Also add the picture to an appropriate gallery and section of Commons:Featured pictures, list. Click on the most appropriate link beneath where you just added it as one of the four images.
    • Add the template {{Assessments|featured=1}} to the image description page.
      • If it was an alternative image, use the subpage/com-nom parameter: For example, if File:Foo.jpg was promoted at Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Bar.jpg, use {{Assessments|featured=1|com-nom=Bar.jpg}}
      • If the image is already featured on another wikipedia, just add featured=1 to the Assessments template. For instance {{Assessments|enwiki=1}} becomes {{Assessments|enwiki=1|featured=1}}
      • Add the picture to the chronological list of featured pictures. Put it in the gallery using this format: File:xxxxx.jpg|# - '''Headline'''<br>created by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]], uploaded by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]], nominated by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]]
      • The # should be replaced by 1 for the first image nominated that month, and counts up after that. Have a look at the other noms on that page for examples.
      • You may simplify this if multiple things were done by the same user. E.g.: File:xxxxx.jpg|# - '''Headline'''<br>created, uploaded, and nominated by [[User:xxxxx|xxxxx]]
    • Add == FP promotion ==
      {{FPpromotion|File:XXXXX.jpg}} to the Talk Page of the nominator.
  5. As the last step (whether the image is featured or not; including {{FPX}}ed, {{FPD}}ed and withdrawn nominations), open Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list, click on [edit], and find the transclusion of the nomination you've just finished closing. It will be of the form:
    {{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:XXXXX.jpg}}
    Copy it to the bottom of Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/January 2022), save that page, and remove it from the candidate list.

Closing a delisting request[edit]

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    Add the result of the voting at the bottom (on a new line with a space first)
    '''Result:''' x delist, x keep, x neutral => /not/ delisted. ~~~~
    (for example see Commons:Featured picture candidates/removal/Image:Astrolabe-Persian-18C.jpg)
  2. Also edit the title of the delisting candidate image template and add after the image tag
    delisted or not delisted
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] === becomes === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], delisted ===
  3. Move the actual template from Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list to the bottom of the actual month page on Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/January 2022.
  4. If the outcome was not delisted, stop here. If it is delisted:
    1. Remove the picture from Commons:Featured pictures, list and any subpages.
    2. Edit the picture's description as follows:
      1. Replace the template {{Featured picture}} on the image description page by {{Delisted picture}}. If using the {{Assessments}} template, change featured=1 to featured=2 (do not change anything related to its status in other featured picture processes).
      2. Remove the image from all categories beginning with "Featured [pictures]" (example: Featured night shots, Featured pictures from Wiki Loves Monuments 2016, Featured pictures of Paris).
      3. Remove the "Commons quality assessment" claim (d:Property:P6731) "Wikimedia Commons featured picture" from the picture's Structured data.
    3. Add a delisting-comment to the original entry in chronological list of featured pictures in bold-face, e. g. delisted 2007-07-19 (1-6) with (1-6) meaning 1 keep and 6 delist votes (change as appropriate). The picture in the gallery is not removed.
  5. If this is a Delist and Replace, the delisting and promotion must both be done manually. To do the promotion, follow the steps in the above section. Note that the assessment tag on the file page and the promotion tag on the nominator's talk page won't pick up the /replace subpage that these nominations use.

Manual archiving of a withdrawn nomination[edit]

  1. In Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list click on the title/link of the candidate image, then [edit].
    In the occasion that the FPCbot will not mark withdrawn nominations with a "to be reviewed" template and put them in Category:Featured picture candidates awaiting closure review just like if they were on the usual list, put the following "no" template:
    {{FPC-results-reviewed|support=X|oppose=X|neutral=X|featured=no|gallery=|sig=--~~~~}}
  2. Also edit the title of the candidate image template and add after the image tag
    not featured
    For example:
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]] ===
    becomes
    === [[:File:XXXXX.jpg]], not featured ===
  3. Save your edit.
  4. Open Commons:Featured picture candidates/candidate list, click on [edit], and find the transclusion of the nomination. It will be of the form:
    {{Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:XXXXX.jpg}}
    Copy it to the bottom of Commons:Featured picture candidates/Log/January 2022), save that page, and remove it from the candidate list.
