Itsukushima torii[edit]

The torii at Itsukushima Shrine appears to float in the water.
auto-colored, auto-contrasted

Self-nom; a vibrantly-colored illustration for Itsukushima Shrine and Three Views of Japan. — Dan | Talk 13:04, 8 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Neutral. Good composition, but the image looks a bit pink to me. Is it possible to adjust the white balance a bit? This may change my vote to pro. -- Chris 73 Talk 14:03, Mar 8, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support 2nd version or Rdsmith4's modified version. -- BRIAN0918  15:47, 8 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose Image requires a couple of degrees of clockwise rotation. Support Denni 00:33, 2005 Mar 9 (UTC)
    • To Denni and jk, I have rotated it as Photoshop suggested to make the horizon perfectly horizontal. As for the color, I lowered the saturation very slightly; I tried going further, but the colors went quite dull. I can hardly see the difference on my LCD screen, but you might if you have a better monitor. Hope this addresses your concerns. — Dan | Talk 01:11, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)

desat. clouds, rotated 1.25 degrees CW
  • Support Nice photo: very illustrative. jk 19:07, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • I like it. It's pretty! Support. --Sonjaaa 23:28, Mar 9, 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Oversaturated colour. Mark1 03:43, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Bold crop with higher resolution and lower saturation
    • The saturation has not changed from the original image, which is quite well within bounds for color saturation. The most notable change to my (IMHBEO) opinion is to the color balance, which has eliminated the unnatural green cast. I might suggest a bold crop to help feature the shrine, though.

      • The red and green on the torii still look weird to me. There's also some kind of purple, hazy border around the hills and the torii. Mark1 01:57, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Nice setting. Support. (but if it got better i wouldn't object either) -- Dbroadwell 21:46, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Original photo looks a little drab and all the adjusted versions look too saturated, I also don't like the canoe being in the photo. Doesn't suit the atmosphere --Fir0002 04:13, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Totally disagree about canoe - provides scale and puts it in context as a tourist destination, not a temple. jk
  • A tough call. Support any of the rotated versions (all but Image:Itsukushima torii distance 2.jpg at the moment). Lower saturation in the sky is a plus for the latter two images; lower resolution is a minus. I'm also undecided whether I like it better cropped or not. —Korath (Talk) 19:54, Mar 11, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support boldly cropped version (EDIT: with larger resolution), Oppose all others. The composition of the last one really adds something the others lack. Junes 14:22, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • I don't know if I'm allowed to vote since I took the picture, but I oppose the bottom two because of the lower resolution. — Dan | Talk
  • Oppose. Not particularly striking and actually rather cluttered. - Seth Ilys 20:55, 22 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Bevo 22:04, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Support any, killkillkill --SPUI (talk) 08:41, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)
