Stadshaven[edit]

View of Stadshaven in city of Goes

Perfect evening in the Goes main harbor. Many beatiful corners of Europe are very little known, they just wait to be discoverd; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goes, by Lsorin.

  • Nominate and support. - Lsorin 12:21, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose The largest version is blurred, the blur is visible even on the thumbnail. Sorry! - Adrian Pingstone 13:45, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Very blurry. --Pharaoh Hound (talk) 14:59, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose very blurry. HighInBC 22:01, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Lighting is very nice, but as mentioned above several pieces of the panorama are out of focus (>5px blur radius). If a reshoot is possible, try to lock the focus and I'd like to see less roofs cut. --Dschwen 00:42, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Comment Agree with this above comment. --Kalmia 20:25, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose The image itself is beautiful, especially the colors. However the article it points to has no content whatsoever. If there was, I'd support this. Jeeb 02:50, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
I don't see how the article, small as it is, has anything to do with the value of the image itself. Raven4x4x 04:23, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
Read the first sentence on this page. An FP in an article with almost no content defeats the purpose of it being a FP - what does it add to the non-existent content of the article, and why attract users to that article? --jjron 08:15, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
  • The bluring of the image is caused by the conversion software use in Wiki. Do you have any clue what is that software? If you look directly at the full size picture http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/31/Stadshaven.jpg with a good browser, you'll notice that the blur is not in the original picture, but is generated by the conversion software.Lsorin
    • Lsporin, I'm puzzled. On my CRT screen the pic you link to (which is just the pic you'd get by clicking on the thumb then clicking on what then appears) is very blurred! So, for me, the blur is in the original picture. I know my browser well (IE version 6) and it never blurs pics. Is anyone else seeing a sharp pic on the highest res of this submission? Of course, Lsorin's idea of sharpness may not be mine. - Adrian Pingstone 08:55, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
      • You're both right. MediaWiki uses some software that causes unsharp thumbnails. However in this case the original image is quite soft as well. It could safely be downsampled and sharpened. Stevage 09:18, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
        • But with an unsharpness radius of at least 5px it'll have top be downsampled to <20% making it fairly tiny. Reshoot with manual focus! --Dschwen 17:05, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose. Per above, with blur. Otherwise I like the picture --Tewy 18:45, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose. The subject and colors are great, but as above... it's too blurry. Perhaps a resize will reduce this and make it sharper? --DinkY2K 23:32, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I almost don't need to click on it to see how blurry it is. --Thelb4 11:12, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Poor quality at full res. --Fir0002 12:05, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
