Maple leaves - not featured[edit]

Please state which (if any) you support, referring to them by number 1, 2, 3 or 4. I only intend for one of these to be featured but I am sure people will have different favourites (and least-favourites).

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support all, favour 1 —pfctdayelise (translate?) 10:56, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose All of these four pictures are equally nice, but none of them is sharp in every part. I'd prefer just one sharp leaf instead of a disturbing multitude of them. Due to the fact that leaves are neither rare objects nor difficult to photograph an excellent quality would be needed to justify FP-status. MGo 11:44, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Leaves are not rare, true, but I have never seen any like this. pfctdayelise (translate?) 12:16, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
  • First of all: These are really nice pictures. Second and third one are very artifically, but have not much encyclopedic value due to disturbing composition. I prefer first and fourth one. Due to the fact, that they are little bit blurry (unfavourable, because of the feathery structure) and the sticks in the background, i just vote Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral. The first one is my favourite. norro 12:09, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
Please remeber that "encyclopedic value" is not the best reason for inclusion or otherwise -- commons photos can be used in any number of projects other than wikipedia -- even something like fiction or a Wikibook cover. --Quasipalm 20:11, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - tend to agree with MGo. In order of niceness, 1 is best, then 4, 2, 3 worst. It would also be nice to have more info on how the leaves were treated to make them like this. Of identification, they are probably Acer platanoides. - MPF 14:33, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
