  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- I don't think that the documental value mitigates the terrible image quality. The photograph is overexposed, there are strange concentric artifacts on the sky, vigneting, dust spots and the geometric distortion is excessive. How could it be possible to obtaing this result with such a good camera? Part of the problem is the automatic exposure choice but it doesn't explain everything. Sorry.

Thank you for nominating this image.

    • Sure. As Carschten already mentioned the problem are the compression artifacts. Not only in the background, where they appear like small geometric figures "invented" by the compression algorithm but also in the subject, where they affect the detail and sharpness. Always choose the maximum possible resolution and image quality, especially when using compact cameras with small sensors. Please take a look at the present featured pictures of insect (and butterflies) in our galleries to have a idea of what kind of quality is required. Alvesgaspar (talk) 08:46, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose – Certainly a quality picture, but I'm sorry, I must oppose this one (for now) for several reasons. In some sections, the cleanup of dirt, streaks, etc. has only replaced dark smudges with light ones (especially around the signature). There is also a heavy brown discoloration in the third archway from the left, and it snakes a path through the center of the image. Most importantly, however, the paper tone of the foreground does not carry through the rest of the image. On close examination, there is widespread color variance in the blacks – they are warm in some areas, cool in others. This yields faint but perceptible tints of blue, green and pink, all of which will be much more pronounced when the image is printed. SteveStrummer (talk) 01:20, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The thumbnail looks dark but in full resolution it is OK, I think. The sky is darker than a regular blue sky, because it was heavily clouded that day. The picture was taken just after sunrise when the sun was still below the clouds in the back (left hand side) of the photographer and illuminated the foreground and the plant, which both are not dark if you look at the image in full resolution. Concerning colour saturation: It's a tone-mapped HDR of a colourful plant. There is slight emphasis on the colours, but not far away from natural. -- Norbert Nagel (talk) 18:48, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating this image. Unfortunately, it does not fall within the Guidelines and is unlikely to succeed because it's resolution is less than 2MP and the overall quality of the jpg is poor. Anyone other than the nominator who disagrees may override this template by changing {{FPX}} to {{FPX contested}} and adding a vote in support. Voting will then continue in the usual way. If not contested within 24 hours, this nomination may be closed.

In May 1863, U.S. Secretary of War Edwin Stanton issued General Order No. 143 creating the Bureau of U. S. Colored Troops.

Lamentablemente las condiciones atmosféricas cuando tomaste la foto no eran muy buenas para fotografiar, con escasa luz en ciertas zonas y algunas partes muy brilantes en las nubes. Tampoco se aprecia el verde de las montañas por la poca luz: la imágen se ve muy azul. De lo contrario muy buena imágen de valor enciclopédico. --Paolo Costa (talk) 17:34, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

This was scanned at 720 dpi. People horded all of the gold and silver coins during the Civil War so the Post Office was authorized to issue small denomination paper currency to facilitate everyday transactions.

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral, tending to oppose. Not bad, very sharp and nice, emotional and educational value. But this kind of picture needs more geometry IMO, and the "circles" are not centered. + crop not perfect: I miss an edge.--Jebulon (talk) 11:09, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Electricity pylon in Plouzané, Britanny (France)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I can understand the blurry, but not the "centralized of the main subject"....--Llorenzi (talk) 08:37, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

    • Now that the original painting was shown, my suspicion about the lack of detail was confirmed and enhanced. --Paolo Costa (talk) 14:31, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose – Pleasing to the modern eye, but not an accurate representation of the original art. Healy was a classically-trained draftsman who painted in traditional academic style. In this version the shadow areas are filled to maximum density, obscuring all shape and detail in the clothes and losing the separation between figure and background – certainly not Healy's style.
