Lucy Arbell in Massenet's ThérèseEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 1 Apr 2019 at 14:25:50 (UTC)

 
Original – Poster design advertising Lucy Arbell in the Paris première of Jules Massenet's Thérèse
Reason
It's a wonderful drawing. Admittedly, it's a stage of a poster we don't normally see, but I think that the actual art would probably have been degraded a bit as it went to poster, so this stage may well be the best option. Mainly stamp removal and scratch removal here.

As I understand it, daguerreotypes did not look like that originally - e.g. as faded and damaged, they just experience rather nasty degradation over time. In any case, it hasnt changed that substantially, other than crop, some contrast, and expansion outwards to remove the severely damaged tarnished area surrounding it. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 11:15, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
@Janke: Do you think that File:Edgar Allan Poe, circa 1849, restored.jpg would be better? Adam's version has more restoration, but this may look like closer to a daguerreotype. Regards, Yann (talk) 11:59, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Daguerrotypes were typically mounted in a glass frame, sometimes with a cover, as a little book. The restorations have removed this. The above mentioned oval restoration (with faded edges) re-inserted in the original frame would satisfy me, looking like a real Daguerrotype. --Janke | Talk 13:49, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
PD-Art only applies to two-dimensional works, the frames are 3D. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 13:51, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
We have the picture with the frame under a free license, but without restoration. It comes from the Getty Museum via Google Art Project. Regards, Yann (talk) 13:55, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Hm. It's a point. I have a suspicion this one will be preferred in articles, though, where the focus is Poe, not historic photography. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 14:12, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Yes; that's what I think too. Your version is more useful for illustrating Wikipedia articles about Poe, while the picture with a frame might be more appreciated on Commons, as a work of art in itself. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:20, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment@Qono: when you introduce an alternate please say you did so in a comment, so the reviewers know the nominator isn't presenting two versions. Also, I think it is inappropriate to take a restoration, add more restoration to it (in this case, not in a significant time consuming way, in my opinion) and present it as an alternate while the original restorer(s) are active editors and could have done so (if they chose to) with a mere suggestion. Same for a photograph or a drawing if the creator is an active editor. Just my two cents. Bammesk (talk) 16:20, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Got it, I'll be sure to note introductions of alternatives in the future. I'm not sure why it's inappropriate to contribute an alternative. I'm used to the Wikipedia standard of "be bold", but if there are more local norms I'm violating here, please let me know. Thanks. Qono (talk) 16:50, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Well... you did fail to credit Yann or me, and changed the license from our release into the public domain to one requiring reusers credit you (but not us, since we weren't listed)... that's problematic. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 17:07, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
  • In article space, contributors get no credit (or exposure) when their work is used elsewhere (inside or outside wikipedia), so being bold and taking liberty is a nonissue. For visual content (including restorations) contributors get credited when their images are used (for example on the main page), see the archives and notice the footnotes; therefore contributing to others' work and having one's name or username be listed alongside their name would be inappropriate IMO when/if such contributions are non-significant (in creativity or timewise) and when the original contributors are active editors and could do so (if they chose) with a mere suggestion. Bammesk (talk) 17:29, 24 March 2019 (UTC) . . . . fixed the archive link.
  • Well, also note that [1] - the version of the file description Qono used - and this is probably a mistake, but a rather bad one - credits Qono as sole author and mentions neither Yann nor me anywhere on the page. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 18:19, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
  • I've proposed additional language to the main featured pictures candidates page to help clarify the process for newcomers who want to edit candidates. I propose we continue this discussion there, for those who are interested. Feel free to remove my alternate here, if you would like, Adam_Cuerden. Sorry for the trouble. Qono (talk) 02:29, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Stellar nursery seen by the Spitzer Space TelescopeEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 6 Apr 2019 at 23:03:28 (UTC)

 
OriginalWesterhout 40 is a stellar nursery found in the constellation Serpens. This image, taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope, showcases both the young star cluster (center of the nebula) as well as the remnants of the interstellar cloud from which the cluster formed. In this image the nebula takes on the appearance of a "butterfly" due to bubbles in the gas cloud blown by radiation and winds from the hot, newborn stars. The image was taken by Spitzer's IRAC camera in several infrared bands that were combined to create this picture in false color.
Reason
Large-scale view of one of the nearest stellar nurseries. 1) The image meets a high technical standard because it was taken by a NASA telescope and produced by professionals at JPL, and therefore represents the best possible image of this nebula. 2) This is the full-size JPEG image and represents the highest resolution of the Spitzer Space Telescope. 3) The W40 region is astronomically important because it is one of the nearest sites of massive star formation in our galaxy, and the infrared image by Spitzer makes the nebula look spectacular. 4) It was released by NASA, so it is free. 5) I have used this image to illustrate the article Westerhout 40. 6) The information can be verified by the description in the JPL image release [2]. 7) The image's description on the Wikimedia Commons page is complete and correct.

I believe the lines you noticed are an effect called "muxbleed" which affects data from infrared detectors at cryogenic temperatures. Although these can be partially corrected in the data [3], they remain faintly visible in the images. I don't own photoshop (or have experience using it), but if someone else wants to see if they can photoshop these out, they are welcome to try. OtterAM (talk) 03:19, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
I meant photoshop in a generic sense. Free programs such as GIMP are available on the web and can be used for touchups. If no one does the touchup, I will do it in a day or two. Bammesk (talk) 03:41, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

  • I doubt it's because of uneven exposure or effects other than the actual print. Looking at the unprinted borders, it rules out any mistakes in lighting, stair-stepping, etc. I think it can very well be a combination of the age of the map, 400 years, and the printing process Woodcuting. Also, unlikely that the library of congress would publish such a high resolution large file and let such a poor lighting go. This being a historic document, I think its best not to edit.

Buzz Aldrin by Neil ArmstrongEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 30 Apr 2019 at 22:32:26 (UTC)

 
Original – Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, lunar module pilot, stands on the surface of the moon near the leg of the lunar module, Eagle, during the Apollo 11 moonwalk.
Reason
A higher resolution version of a historic photo with EV because it does not hide the fact that a small part of Aldrin's backpack was cut off in the original photo by Armstong (File:AS11-40-5903 - Buzz Aldrin by Neil Armstrong (full frame).jpg). The black frame around the image is retained for both compositional concerns as well as for encyclopedic value because it clearly shows, when zoomed in, that the image ends incidentally excluding the small antenna at the top of Aldrin's suit. Another version of this photo without the black frame (and I believe different coloration) can be found at File:Aldrin Apollo 11 original.jpg.

NASA's version which is very famous is already an FP. I hesitate to advocate delisting it because of concerns voiced at Commons that that version has EV of its own. (See also: c:Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Buzz Aldrin by Neil Armstrong.jpg.) However, IMHO, many instances of the NASA version that are found en.wiki are better replaced by this version unless discussing the NASA version itself.

What's wrong is that when someone uploads a photo, that's how they want it. It's not right for anyone else to crop it. People may crop Wikipedia images under a free licence to use outside of Wikipedia. Charlesjsharp (talk) 08:20, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
There is nothing wrong with what I did as long as attribution is given.[7] Please stop casting aspersions. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 08:44, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
    • To clarify, the NASA version is also not on Buzz Aldrin. The version on Buzz Aldrin is our crop of this photo. I would be ok with File:Aldrin Apollo 11 original.jpg (the crop at Aldrin and Apollo 11) being promoted instead.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 23:52, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
    • Tdadamemd, who uploaded the "full frame" version I cropped, has been indeffed. I can't ask them to crop it themselves. Who is this "other people"? Would you prefer that I download TIFF again and create my own upload. I can do that. All of these images are in PD.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 00:02, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
I would be glad to consider any edit requests ...although that appears to be moot here now.
As for being "indeffed", it is impossible to block a person from a website that is open to the public. At most, a person's account can be indeffed. And for anyone who looks into my own personal case, you will see that there was absolutely no grounds for the action taken. The charge was sockpuppetry, and that is something that I have never done on any website ever in my entire life. Wikipedia specifies legitimate reasons for having multiple accounts, and my usage fit under these categories. There is actually another user in the discussion on this picture candidate page who also has multiple accounts. It's not a big deal, and certainly not grounds for blocking anyone's account, when used properly, as I have consistently done.
I flew to San Francisco and visited the Wikimedia Office to seek resolution. I was very disappointed to find that they had no interest in correcting the way that certain admins wield their authority, let alone fixing the system that enables them to do so in the manner that was done with me.
When any admin takes the severe action of blocking anyone's acct (let alone indef), they should be required to site the specific evidence which substantiates the infraction. You know, quite similar to how editors are tasked with backing up key facts with solid references. But admins are not required to do so. They freewheel with their authority, and the central office does not care, so Wikipedia is what it is. We have a site where the inventor himself vacated the premises because the day-to-day operations are so broken. --Tdadamemd (talk) 02:24, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

The background has been blurred in that area, hence the posterization. Adding a bit of noise (no more than elsewhere in the background) would have gotten rid of that. --Janke | Talk 08:53, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Support Excellent photos, with strong EV. I'd note that these are very small and fast-moving parrots who are quite wary of humans (even the ones who live in suburbia scatter if anyone comes near them), so taking these photos would have been technically very challenging.

  • Comment Notability: the article was only written in February and implies she's a minor actress. Charlesjsharp (talk) 20:10, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
  • I'm not opposing, but I've had images rejected because the articles are stubs. The issue is also at VI. I don't know what the answer is. Some of my animals are pretty obscure! Charlesjsharp (talk) 18:25, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
  • I think I can kind of see the stub thing, if the information is sparse enough that an upmerge to the genus might be appropriate (or there's doubts about WP:GNG, but otherwise, no, being valuable to at least one article should be sufficient. At least, that's what was always the rule two years ago. Anything else discourages article creation and variety of subjects covered.

  • Question What are our rules on personality rights? For adults and for children? FP needs free licence, but this one says it's not in the public domain. It that OK? The background isn't well chosen, neither is the crop. Charlesjsharp (talk) 18:21, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
  • CC-by-SA is considered a sufficiently free licence, isn't it? Not 100% sure about SA. I know there was an issue with dual-licensing GDFL and CC-by-NC, but SA is a lot less restrictive than that. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.5% of all FPs 18:53, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
  • For the personality rights, I don't think we need anything else than the current template. The background is the wall of her house, so I can't do anything about it. The crop is chosen to have lead space in the direction she's looking, and use the rule of third. That's how portraits are usually done. Regards, Yann (talk) 05:48, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
  • I wasn't meaning the wall, but the fabric behind her. And actually portraits, unsurprisingly, are usually portrait orientation, not landscape, but of course it's an artistic choice. Charlesjsharp (talk) 08:25, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
