Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The image has been selectively cleaned to remove the reddish spots. Much care has been applied to avoid losing drawing lines, and, in any case, this has been carefully documented: in the description of the image it is clearly indicated where is :the non-cleaned image.
The cleaned image has two scopes: to illustrate Camillo Benso, Conte di Cavour, one of the oustanding personalities of Italian history; and, thanks to the sharpness and high resolution of the image, to document the finest details of the engraving art. A lot of details are indeed present in the image. --GianniG46 (talk) 20:35, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose -- The colours of the blue sea, green grass and black chair work well. However, the composition is poor: the whole picture needs shifted to the right, and possibly the camera position rotated a bit. The right-facing chair demands it be placed in the far left of the frame, because the viewer will look to where it faces and end up out of the picture. The mountains in the left third aren't as impressive, so could be eliminated without loss. The black patch (burnt grass? tarmac?) on the left is off-putting. There is significant haze in the distance, removing definition from the mountains. A portrait crop of the right-hand-side, to include all the near high mountains, works better as a composition, but would still benefit from the chair being further left. I hope you can see that the viewer would imagine themselves in the chair and picture the view from that chair, which is partly out of frame. Colin (talk) 18:15, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose -- Too much tonal enhancement of the foreground grass, whereas the background mountains lack some... I agree the composition should include more the right side as per Colin.--Telemaque MySon (talk) 16:36, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral High quality portrait of a notable Russian historian. Also valuable; seems to be the only photo of Nikolay Kradin available on Commons. A very formal portrait, but it does not reveal much to me about the person, what is inside, and thus it does not give a huge reading on my wow-o-meter. Also slightly unfortunate asymmetry regarding the crop of the shoulders. It did made me read about Chiefdom though... I would consider nominating it as a valued image within the scope "Nikolay Kradin". --Slaunger (talk) 21:37, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I am fond of the style. For this time period, it is not easy to find anything sharp, so to speak. The image in this photo is actually quite ornate and detailed, far more than most I have ever seen. I agree that the file name should be changed from Mad to something else, maybe Median. It is because (I think) of the negative connotations of the word "mad" in the English language. However, I confess, I don't know how to accomplish changing the file name! I was trying to figure it out for one of my own uploaded images, with no success! One more reason to include this image: It is well-documented. There is an exceptional amount of relevant detail, in perfect grammatical English. --FeralOink (talk) 20:41, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Delias eucharis
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The Common Jezebel (Delias eucharis) is a medium sized pierid butterfly found in many areas of South and Southeast Asia. The butterfly may be found wherever there are trees, even in towns and cities, flies high among the trees and comes lower down only to feed on nectar in flowers. It rests with its wings closed exhibiting the brilliantly coloured underside. Due to this habit apparently, it has evolved a dull upper-side and a brilliant underside so that birds below it recognise it immediately while in flight and at rest. The bright coloration is to indicate the fact that it is unpalatable due to toxins accumulated by the larvae from the host-plants. All by me -- Jkadavoor (talk) 08:51, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

I guess the main reason might be the same I have in mind: it's a decent landscape shot with pretty mountains in the background but the picture is missing something that would make it stand out among other landscapes. The overall quality is quite nice yet could be better too. Maybe I would have cropped more from the sky because there seems to be no interesting content up there. I am missing the ”magic” that would make me say this is a featured picture. It can be useful nevertheless. --Ximonic (talk) 17:25, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

    • I think it is promotional, propaganda is such a flavoured word, which depends much on personal preferences. The too much issue I have about it, is how the promotional aspect is exaggerated with the huge flag. It is too obviously promotional for my taste. There is not any kind of subtlety, discreteness or balance in it IMO. But I have no problem that others have different opinions. On the other hand one can say it is very honest. One cannot say that the US Navy is trying to hide any objectives by releasing it under a free license. Obviously getting it on the main page of Commons would fulfill the objective of publishing it. --Slaunger (talk) 14:46, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Yes; But I didn't understand what you mean. (The underside is white with a series of dark brown to black marginal spots and a post-discal series of disjoint striae. On the hindwing there is a prominent black spot in space 7 near the costa and a much smaller black spot in space 1a.) This is a shadow loving butterfly active only in the evening or cloudy days. And this is a 'in vivo' shot taken in natural lights scattered from the plants around. For real colors, please refer a collected specimen (In vitro) or a museum specimen. Jkadavoor (talk) 06:24, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Could you (or anybody) explain a bit more? My photoshop says up to RGB(250,254,255) on white parts. Further the female looks more white, this one (male) has a mix of brown and white colors. Jkadavoor (talk) 09:36, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Quality and light not supergood. Good pose and composition. Personally I think hummingbirds very hard to photograph. I hunted this for days with less good results. I am also impressed that the photo is taken with a Canon Powershot, and not some fancy DSLR with a monster zoom lens. --Slaunger (talk) 22:00, 30 June 2012 (UTC)
My camera has a 35x zoom, however, this photo was taken very close. I spent several hours camouflaged in the foliage. The bird began to watch me watching but did not understand and leave me to take that photo. I live in a third world country, previously had a $ 34 camera, however, I gathered for 9 months to buy this camera, that way to upload good quality photos to commons, however, is not enough. Buy this camera living in a third world country like Venezuela gathering means 9 months 70% of salary, if this image is not elected, I will dedicate to draw instead of taking pictures, it is simply impossible to buy a DSLR camera for a person who lives here. There should be some program to help people like me who live and love the pictures with free licenses.--The Photographer (talk) 03:01, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

      • I was really upset.. because I paid 200 rupes (last March) and then I tried to shot some scenes with video.. and some people came and told me that I have to pay another 200 rupes because I have 2 cameras!!! ;-) For example in Ahmedabad or Faterhpur Sikri there are amazing mosques with no charges.. Generally speaking inside mosques (ie. in Turkey or Iran) you don't pay money for photo or entrance fee. Ggia (talk) 08:59, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Episyrphus balteatus, male
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Episyrphus balteatus, sometimes called the marmalade hoverfly, is a relatively small hoverfly (9–12 mm) of the Syrphidae family, widespread throughout all continents. Like most other hoverflies it mimics a much more dangerous insect, the solitary wasp, though it is a quite harmless species. This is a male. All by -- Jkadavoor (talk)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose -- Sorry Jkadavoor, you have wonderful macro shots but this is not one of them. Please compare its detail and sharpness with those of the other hoverflies in our FP gallery (including the marmelade fly). -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:45, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes; I noticed the female by you which has far better details than this, but an overall better DOF is more meaningful than fancy DOF only on the eyes at least for wikipedia projects. (Not criticising, just my thoughts on fine-details vs overall-details. I didn't mean this is good picture worth to be featured.) Jkadavoor (talk) 06:36, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • A second thought. There is not much meaning to compare with a very old work (Dec 2007). Sorry. Jkadavoor (Jee) (talk) 13:34, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- I was not refering specifically to any of my pictures, even less to the one you mention, but to the overall quality of our FP gallery of hoverflies (check, for example this one pic). As for the use of the available DOF, I really think that the eyes should always be on focus and shown with the maximum possible detail (on this, I share the opinion of some experts writting about macrophotography of insects). Finally, the comparison between the older FP and the new candidates should be flattering to the the latter, as the overall quality of photographic gear has improved a lot in the last 5 years or so... -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 20:13, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Exactly. That is what I expressed as a second thought above. My earlier comparison was because they are pictures of same subject with different sex; but later I noticed it was taken at Dec 2007. I think I apologized too. See the word "sorry" there. (There may be a language problem in my words.)
  • DOF is a different argument. Pictures with focus only on the eyes are highly appreciated in sites like Flickr but I don't prefer it unless we have presented them as a set to highlight different parts as different views. I don't think we can achieve great details in overall in a single shot unless we use focus stacking which is not possible in simple handheld shots. -- Jkadavoor (Jee) (talk) 06:42, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Leptosia nina
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info The Psyche (Leptosia nina) is a small butterfly of the family Pieridae (The Sulphurs, Yellows and Whites) and is found in Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. The upper forewing has a black spot on a mainly white background. The flight is weak and erratic and the body of the butterfly bobs up and down as it beats its wings. They fly low over the grass and the butterfly rarely leaves the ground level. Created by me - edited by Vassil -- Jkadavoor (Jee) (talk) 09:35, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
