  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is definitely a QI, but I don't see this as FP. Sorry. Just to much of this road in the image and as it is dominating that much it is ruining the wow factor for me. It would had been better when there would be bigger focus to the sea. Maybe a crop would also help here. Kruusamägi (talk) 23:18, 21 January 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I would recommend a crop on the left for two reasons: 1) the pole is a bit distracting at that position; either leave more space to the left (not possible in post) or remove it completely; 2) currently, the road is too centered. --King of ♠ 00:31, 22 January 2013 (UTC)[reply]

The image resolution is really wow indeed, but someone who supports just because of that should have a look in full view: not really sharp, parts of the sky look pixelated.

In summer, the trees are much more disturbing (thanks to the leaves) and the church is surrounded by centuries-old trees (the first trees were planted at the cemetery in the 1710s), and there is no better angle. I think it's very relevant to show both the church and the cemetery in a single image, and a good illustration of the separate articles on the cemetery in Norwegian and Swedish Wikipedia. Snow is a part of life in Stockholm, sometimes we have snow from November to March. Personally, I like the beautiful winter light and colors here.--ArildV (talk) 22:17, 25 January 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Due to foreground shadow, sorry. --Ivar (talk) 09:12, 26 January 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - hmm, actually the shadow isn't that evil to me because it harmonizes with the dark nordic sky what makes the overall contrast still OK. However, let's be honest, it's "just" a good-quality photo of a building. For an FP, one may (and should!!) demand some more - here we have a nice winter scene, but a rather ordinary one; some of your other winter photos (like this one) have much more of special, as you probably will agree. Let's keep COM:FP a place for that special pictures. --A.Savin 22:58, 26 January 2013 (UTC)[reply]

    Currently, quality problems are visible in the 1,280-preview.

    , just one century ago, the front page of the weekly illustrated supplement of "Le Petit Journal", january 26, 1913, celebrating the election of the new french President. One can see on the file page the correction I've made from the original, very damaged. It is not a "restoration" of an old nice quality print, please remember it is only a sample of a cheap newspaper... It has historical value because of the centenary, and because Poincaré would be the President of France during the "Great War".

    • There's a lot going on in this image... No bird in the birdcage (a sexual allusion), the girl is wearing part of a curass and is using a (spanish?) helmet as a drum, a bible under a broken winejug. Also a rommelpot is being used. Allusions to the Eighty Years' War? The date seems to match. Kleuske (talk) 18:22, 27 January 2013 (UTC)[reply]

    ✓ Done Fixed --The Photographer (talk) 03:31, 1 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
    The underexposure is fully fixed and the problem with backlight is at least a lot less problematic than before. The editing has created some noise issues, but nothing too bad. I won't oppose, but I still think the lighting conditions are just not optimal for showing the cacti, and the corrections unavoidably create a slightly artificial appearance of the photo, therefore: Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral. --Julian H. (talk/files) 14:47, 1 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
Pictogram voting info.svg Info The illumination is natural, there is a high image range, to thereby be able to have an image without overexposure or subexposures. I disagree, however, I respect your point of view, thank you very much for your comment, always help to improve the standard. --The Photographer (talk) 18:36, 1 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Noisy, levels forced to turn the image lighter make the scene unreal, haloes around the clouds, cactus on first term hides highest mountains on the background, colours way too saturated --Juan Lacruz (talk) 23:45, 2 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  • Weak Symbol support vote.svg Support. I like the scene in general, but I feel the framing is a little too high. --King of ♠ 09:44, 3 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  • Weak Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The lighting was not the best for the shot, and the usage of the flash (see EXIF) gives and artificial effect (brigther areas there were you'd would expect rather darkness). There is also some noise on the cactus in the foreground and the sharpness of the vegetation behind the cactus is not convincing (probably due to agressive denoising, since the first version was better on this). Furthermore, I agree with Juan in both comments, the cactus hide the highest summit of the range of mountains in the background, which is disturbing and affects the compositon, and the green channel is oversaturated. I think that the idea overall is good but the result is not a FP to me, sorry. Poco a poco (talk) 11:18, 3 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  • Pictogram voting delete.svg I withdraw my nomination Per Poco and Juan, nice review, thanks --The Photographer (talk) 14:40, 3 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Yellow Lady's-Slipper (Cypripedium calceolus)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Poor angle of view (a side view may far better), bad lights, disturbing OOF leaf in front. JKadavoor Jee 10:01, 1 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
    • I would suggest to look more precisely: a) From a compositional viewpoint a front view is much better than a side view. There is one clear diagonal line going through the photo. I spent a whole day at the area around yellow Lady's-Slipper and believe be a side view is VERY boring from a photographic viewpoint. b) a central characteric of this flower is shown much better in a moderate front view: The stamen over the "slipper" has the function to attract insects that fall into the "slipper" and pollinate the flower during living the shoe. Isn't it striking that all photos on EN-WP or this botanic descriptions are front-views? c) Light: For me it is a nice backlit situation which brings out the texture of the flower very well. I respect your assesment but I think it was a bit hastily. --Tuxyso (talk) 10:24, 1 February 2013 (UTC) [reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The angle of view is good. The leafs in front can be cropped out. The problem is the light. You should have used a flash+disperser. Gidip (talk) 11:31, 2 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
