Sure, we could get some well lit photos of this species during daytime in a zoo, but there is definitely a plus to get a good photo of one in its natural habitat and a flash is the only way. The blackness is not a problem either, it's what you usually get at night in a nature reserve and if someone put a camera flash on me while I was busy hunting down my dinner, I would look startled and awkward too. --cart-Talk 09:18, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Peer Juliancolton and if this period is prolonged, logically, the bird is blinded for an extended moment and is vulnerable to danger as it cannot see well enough to respond to its environment. Many strigids and other nocturnal birds are highly dependent on sight, so a temporary lost of sight might be costly, or even life-threatening (due to depredation). Likewise, a night-bird blinded by the flashes, whether by birder’s torches or photographers flashes, are essentially “wasting” time for foraging and other natural behavior. This might have some ecological implication that we don’t know exist, that directly affects the birds negatively, perhaps in lowered prey capture success, leading to nest failure?, or got killed by arboreal predators.. etc. Having said that, there is still a small chance that the bird may react unexpectedly and hurt itself.

  • Much better, thank you. I like this picture and will reflect on whether I consider it an FP, as I haven't decided yet. I think the fact that you have the road with the stone cubes and the hewn rock in shadow as part of the foreground helps the composition considerably, as it isn't all in hazy light. That might make the difference. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:32, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

    • This is because of how DSCOVR EPIC is making photos. It's taking many images on different wavelength and they are stitched together later for one multi-color image. Apparently it's good enough for Earth, but Moon is "too fast" so layers are misaligned. You can see here that on the opposite side there is blue-ish ring. Yarl 💭  20:50, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Ikan, please take into account that this is a photo with people in it. Having moving, living beings in an indoors-picture with poor light, will limit the options you have of long exposures as well as the number of shots you can take. All that will affect the overall quality of the pic. If you want a "Diliff-quality" shot of a place with people, you would probably have to equip them with neck supports first. --cart-Talk 14:43, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Ikan: Sorry for not answering your first comment earlier. I didn't manage to upload a new version until now. I've applied some selective sharpening, maybe you find it acceptable. The quality of this shoot is surely not comparable to many others here mainly because tripods are strictly prohibited in the temple so I had to perform the three shots (it's a HDR) handheld, which was not easy.

  • Moderate Symbol support vote.svg Support - much better, and thanks for talking about the conditions you worked under. Gnosis, does that ban apply to tourists, too, and do they ban Jews from visiting churches and Christians from visiting synagogues? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:32, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
I don't think this ban applies to tourists, because the government wants to showcase religious tolerance to the western world. With regard to your question about Jews being able to visit churches and Christians being able to visit synagogues, I don't think there is any ban for that, because what the theocratical regime cares is that Iranian Shia muslims DO NOT convert. Also I don't know if you know this but Tehran is the only Islamic capital where there is no Sunni mosque there. Iran has 15 percent Sunnis and Sunnis consist of about 85 to 90 percent of total population of muslims. This is perfect example of their religious oppression towards even other muslims. --Gnosis (talk) 04:17, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
No, I didn't know that. Unfortunately, I don't think that kind of intercommunal intolerance is uncommon. Most people wouldn't expect that a Muslim country that's as relatively mild as Malaysia would prohibit Shi'ahs from preaching or having any place of worship throughout the country, but that's exactly what they do, so it's presumably worse in that respect than Iran, where Sunnis presumably have mosques in Khuzestan and some other places. But intolerance in any guise is very bad. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:43, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg oppose The image we have here is not the one in the source, and nowhere near as good. The source image much more closely matches File:1665 Girl with a Pearl Earring.jpg which claims the same source. That file is 178 megapixels, though I suspect it is actually upsampled (if downsampled 50% it looks much better and is still 45 megapixels). Major differences are that the background in the source is brown with clear cracking; the colour of her headscarf is different, and the dark patch in the scarf near her left eye is not crushed blacked but still shows colour and detail. Further the cracking on the picture shows signs that the image has been oversharpened. So I think this image has had significant colour adjustments, strong contrast enhancement that has crushed the darker areas to black, and strong sharpening. I think the larger image has merit for FP, but needs some analysis to confirm whether its very large size is justified, and if not, what degree of downsizing would restore it to correct sharp proportions.
I have discovered why the source does not match. An earlier version of the Commons page linked to the source JPG (in addition to surrounding information pages) but this was removed by Crisco for some reason. Looking at the link through the Internet Archive here gives a file that is visually similar to this one, though quite a bit smaller. So I wonder if the museum has improved the copy they display on the website since Crisco first uploaded it. I'll drop Crisco a note. -- Colin (talk) 07:21, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
  • To the best of my recollection, this was uploaded exactly as I found it on the website (as can be seen by the archive link). However, rather than use the automatic download resolution, which was downsampled, I had loaded the image at its full resolution in viewing mode, then downloaded from there using judicious screenshotting. It may have loaded at 125% or something similar as its "maximum resolution"; I suspect the MET's website does the same thing.  — Chris Woodrich (talk) 07:41, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
As for why I removed the direct link to the JPG: to the best of my understanding, we are supposed to link to the host web-page rather than the image directly, to ensure any licensing information or similar is readily available. Hence the removal to the direct JPG link.  — Chris Woodrich (talk) 07:43, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Chris. So I suspect the image on the web page has changed considerably since you screenshotted it. I think the current version on their website is better is better and the other high-res file (File:1665 Girl with a Pearl Earring.jpg) a better place from which to create an FP (if downsized). This file here is the one used by all the Wikipedias and has been featured, etc. The other file, although from the same museum source, is really quite different. It isn't an obvious case for simply overwriting this one per Commons:Overwriting existing files. -- Colin (talk) 09:08, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Daniel. I very much doubt such an image would be published in the UK by any responsible picture editor -- lest it encourage a child to play on the railway tracks. I appreciate he lives at the railway station, and this is a third-world railway track rather than a busy high-speed line, but there seems no good reason to photograph him sitting on the tracks. Further, the background story, though heartbreaking and one I do not doubt, is unsourced and supplied by an unknown and inactive user. It is hard to see how this image/story could be responsibly used for an educational purpose. -- Colin (talk) 07:35, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

    • Colin: Please stick to review the quality and value of the picture. Making a wrong political statement about children living standards doesn't help. I worked for children living in Bombay Central railway station, helping them to find solutions to their problems, but it seems you really have no idea about the lives of such children. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:23, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
      • Yann, I have made no "political statement about children living standards". I'm talking about responsible photography, and responsible sourcing of a story. -- Colin (talk) 10:47, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
        • Among all probabilities, this track is probably just beside his home, as there are a lot of slums by railway tracks, just because there is unoccuppied land there. Not only it is dangerous, but it is also dirty and noisy. And yet it is his living habitat. It is the place where he spends most of his time, trying to make a living picking up whatever he could find there. So you doesn't know what you are talking about. Still your comment is a kind of political statement. It is arrogant and scornful. You want to decide for the child where he should stay and live. Regards, D (talk) 13:59, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
          • Yann, could you cool it a bit please. The comments you are making bear absolutely no resemblance to what I've written. I'm not making any political statement. I have not said anything about where he should stay and live. Have you read the links I posted below. It's about photographers and precisely where they choose to pose and compose their subjects, and the effect that has on other photographers posing subjects on railway lines and getting themselves killed. Those parallel lines trailing into the distance are a deadly magnet for photographers. This is nothing to do with the boy. -- Colin (talk) 14:43, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
            • You don't need to ping me. I always watch my nominations. Yes, your comment has everything to do with the boy. You assume that for him seating in the tracks is a game, or/and that this is a set up by the photographer to make the image more powerful. I think you are wrong on both points. Even if the boy's story is not the truth, he most probably just happens to be here when the photograph passed by. The tracks are his living environment. Why can't he be photographed where he lives? Regards, Yann (talk) 18:03, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
              • I have not given any indication, an indication in the slightest, that I think the boy thinks sitting on the tracks is a game. I cannot read the photographers's mind and have no interest in it. I haven't doubted the story, just question the ability for a responsible publisher to use it: it is just a random story on the internet. Real publishers would only accept such a story from a trusted source. I live next to a busy main road, but I don't photograph my children standing in the middle of it. It is perfectly possible to photograph this boy where he lives, without him sitting on the tracks. Yann, I don't think you've taken on board the links I posted below. This image/story cannot be responsibly published, and I'm far from the only person here that thinks so. I'm unwatching this page now. -- Colin (talk) 20:18, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

(13:06, 22 April 2017 (UTC)) the photograph is visually stunning and is accompanied by background info that really makes it speak volumes more. I don't see the above oppose reasons as strong enough frankly. For concerns about children playing on the tracks, the image is already accompanied by a red box warning, and if you ask me, a child's first thought really could well be: "Look what happened to the kid who ran on the tracks!". That being said, I wouldn't be able to forgive the feeling within me to deny coverage of other stories told worldwide that are heard far less on places like the internet. Although Humans of New York is helping the cause recently, at least this image is freely licensed! Seb26 (talk) 23:26, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
    • Seb26, photos on railway tracks can look "visually stunning". That's why they are popular and why every year people are killed taking photos on railway tracks, and kids are killed playing on them. See this PetaPixel search for multiple articles describing deaths, the backlash that irresponsible publishers face if they post such images, and a good video highlighting how easy it is to get killed. Despite my comment about about third-world tracks, in fact more people died taking selfies in India than anywhere in world, study says. Way more. and that includes selifies taken in front of an oncoming train. Any publisher using such an image would face considerable negative press calling for the head of the photo editor. That means, despite any photographic qualities, the educational value of this image is extremely low, and on a project dedicated to educational media, that means it is not among our finest, and not FP. I really wish the photographer had taken their photos in a safe location. Please reconsider supporting this; it isn't the sort of image we want to encouage. -- Colin (talk) 08:14, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
  • While Seb26 has a point about how a child might view this photo, I've changed my vote based on Daniel's comment. Since I live in an area with lots of inactive rails, I tend to forget the perils in other places. Colin, while the article you link to says that there were 11 train related selfie deaths world-wide that year (which is bad enough) it is about selfie deaths, not train-related, and it also says that "Most of the Indian deaths were water-related". I think this would be a more relevant source. --cart-Talk 11:31, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
[1] The backlash against a photo on National Geographic's Instagram profile as recently as in the last two weeks definitely concerned me. Thank you for the links. I still feel that this boy's story is related to his home at the station. I don't fault the photographer at all in this respect and do not think that he deliberately decided to have the boy sit on the tracks. But it is right what you say, being an FP means it'll reach the main page and potentially expose Commons to backlash or outrage. I am going to be Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral because I can still see that out of all possible photographs and all possible poses made on one, this photograph is going to be the least likely to encourage people or children to do it. Seb26 (talk) 13:06, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm doubtful about the story mentioned in the file page. The beggar mafia is very strong in Asia. They even amputate the children to attract the sympathy. The children will say the story what their mafia leader teach them. They are mostly associated with tracks; so I see anything wrong in this photography though. They will quickly adapted to that environment and quickly achieve the skills to board and alight from a moving train. Jee 16:16, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Even if his "natural habitat" is among the rails the picture is a very bad double take on it. It says something in the description and shows something that can easily be interpreted in a different way. It also lacks any sensitivity (or rather humility from the photographer's part) that great photographers show in their work, you need not to go any further than GMB Akash, the undisputed king of Bangladeshi street photography to see what I mean. Also as Jkadavoor said above me, it is a thing in South-Asia and everyone should approach any story about a child amputee with caution. Is the story about this picture plausible? Yes, sadly tying up children and/or putting them in sacks and dumping in water part is all too familiar. Is it likely, with the amputation and all? Probably not, but in any case impossible to verify. Finally I'd just like to point out this is about Bangladesh, not India, which is a completely different beast even if they look similar to the rest of the world. -- KennyOMG (talk) 22:59, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

  • @Daniel Case, WClarke, Martin Falbisoner, Kabelleger, Seb26: Your oppose votes (or comments) are for the wrong reason. Commons is not a place restricted to politically correct images. This is clear a case of COM:NOTCENSORED. I feel it is also a bit hypocritical, when some people criticize other FPC votes for not technical reasons (military, etc.). Regards, Yann (talk) 06:28, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
@Yann: First, although my !vote above seems to have started this cavalcade of opposes, I myself did not !vote oppose. Second, if by not participating in featuring this image I am saving lives, I'll take any term of abuse you hurl at me (I have opposed, at least initially, plenty of other FP candidates where I thought the photographer was putting themselves at risk). "Politically correct"? Apart from the increasing use of a once-ironic term borrowed from Chinese Communism becoming battered into meaninglessness when we use it for every point of view we wish to delegitimize without attempting to seriously attack the underlying arguments (to the point that it's often a tacit admission the other side has a point you don't want it to have), I fail to see what is "political" about a very real danger. If National Geographic is not immune from this criticism, why should we be? Daniel Case (talk) 06:39, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
OK, I changed my comment above. Yann (talk) 06:58, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

  • I think the censorship argument would make sense if we were voting to delete or keep this image. But this image and its story will stay available on this site long after this vote. The selection of featured pictures is clearly very strategic and is evidently about advertising the project just as much as identifying technical quality. There is evidence to suggest this could harm the project, so it is for that reason that I don't think this should be featured. Seb26 (talk) 12:59, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Fjernelse af fremragende-status[edit]

Nogle gange hænder det at statussen for fremragende billeder ændres. Billeder som tidligere var god nok, vil ikke længere blive anset som det. Her listes billeder som du ikke længere synes fortjener at være det. Da trænges to tredels majoritet (og mindst fem stemmer) som er enig i at fjerne statussen fra billedet.

Sure, we could get some well lit photos of this species during daytime in a zoo, but there is definitely a plus to get a good photo of one in its natural habitat and a flash is the only way. The blackness is not a problem either, it's what you usually get at night in a nature reserve and if someone put a camera flash on me while I was busy hunting down my dinner, I would look startled and awkward too. --cart-Talk 09:18, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Peer Juliancolton and if this period is prolonged, logically, the bird is blinded for an extended moment and is vulnerable to danger as it cannot see well enough to respond to its environment. Many strigids and other nocturnal birds are highly dependent on sight, so a temporary lost of sight might be costly, or even life-threatening (due to depredation). Likewise, a night-bird blinded by the flashes, whether by birder’s torches or photographers flashes, are essentially “wasting” time for foraging and other natural behavior. This might have some ecological implication that we don’t know exist, that directly affects the birds negatively, perhaps in lowered prey capture success, leading to nest failure?, or got killed by arboreal predators.. etc. Having said that, there is still a small chance that the bird may react unexpectedly and hurt itself.

Apparently it's good enough for Earth, but Moon is "too fast" so layers are misaligned. You can see here that on the opposite side there is blue-ish ring. Yarl 💭  20:50, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Ikan, please take into account that this is a photo with people in it. Having moving, living beings in an indoors-picture with poor light, will limit the options you have of long exposures as well as the number of shots you can take. All that will affect the overall quality of the pic. If you want a "Diliff-quality" shot of a place with people, you would probably have to equip them with neck supports first. --cart-Talk 14:43, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

  • I understand that, but the static things in the place are shot at the same time as the people so the same settings are used on those too. And seeing now that Poco couldn't use a tripod, I'd say it's remarkable that the photo is as good as it is. --cart-Talk 18:30, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Ikan: Sorry for not answering your first comment earlier. I didn't manage to upload a new version until now. I've applied some selective sharpening, maybe you find it acceptable. The quality of this shoot is surely not comparable to many others here mainly because tripods are strictly prohibited in the temple so I had to perform the three shots (it's a HDR) handheld, which was not easy.

  • Moderate Symbol support vote.svg Support - much better, and thanks for talking about the conditions you worked under. Gnosis, does that ban apply to tourists, too, and do they ban Jews from visiting churches and Christians from visiting synagogues? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:32, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
I don't think this ban applies to tourists, because the government wants to showcase religious tolerance to the western world. With regard to your question about Jews being able to visit churches and Christians being able to visit synagogues, I don't think there is any ban for that, because what the theocratical regime cares is that Iranian Shia muslims DO NOT convert. Also I don't know if you know this but Tehran is the only Islamic capital where there is no Sunni mosque there. Iran has 15 percent Sunnis and Sunnis consist of about 85 to 90 percent of total population of muslims. This is perfect example of their religious oppression towards even other muslims. --Gnosis (talk) 04:17, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
No, I didn't know that. Unfortunately, I don't think that kind of intercommunal intolerance is uncommon. Most people wouldn't expect that a Muslim country that's as relatively mild as Malaysia would prohibit Shi'ahs from preaching or having any place of worship throughout the country, but that's exactly what they do, so it's presumably worse in that respect than Iran, where Sunnis presumably have mosques in Khuzestan and some other places. But intolerance in any guise is very bad. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:43, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Daphne Lantier 06:50, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg oppose The image we have here is not the one in the source, and nowhere near as good. The source image much more closely matches File:1665 Girl with a Pearl Earring.jpg which claims the same source. That file is 178 megapixels, though I suspect it is actually upsampled (if downsampled 50% it looks much better and is still 45 megapixels). Major differences are that the background in the source is brown with clear cracking; the colour of her headscarf is different, and the dark patch in the scarf near her left eye is not crushed blacked but still shows colour and detail. Further the cracking on the picture shows signs that the image has been oversharpened. So I think this image has had significant colour adjustments, strong contrast enhancement that has crushed the darker areas to black, and strong sharpening. I think the larger image has merit for FP, but needs some analysis to confirm whether its very large size is justified, and if not, what degree of downsizing would restore it to correct sharp proportions.
I have discovered why the source does not match. An earlier version of the Commons page linked to the source JPG (in addition to surrounding information pages) but this was removed by Crisco for some reason. Looking at the link through the Internet Archive here gives a file that is visually similar to this one, though quite a bit smaller. So I wonder if the museum has improved the copy they display on the website since Crisco first uploaded it. I'll drop Crisco a note. -- Colin (talk) 07:21, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
  • To the best of my recollection, this was uploaded exactly as I found it on the website (as can be seen by the archive link). However, rather than use the automatic download resolution, which was downsampled, I had loaded the image at its full resolution in viewing mode, then downloaded from there using judicious screenshotting. It may have loaded at 125% or something similar as its "maximum resolution"; I suspect the MET's website does the same thing.  — Chris Woodrich (talk) 07:41, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
As for why I removed the direct link to the JPG: to the best of my understanding, we are supposed to link to the host web-page rather than the image directly, to ensure any licensing information or similar is readily available. Hence the removal to the direct JPG link.  — Chris Woodrich (talk) 07:43, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Chris. So I suspect the image on the web page has changed considerably since you screenshotted it. I think the current version on their website is better is better and the other high-res file (File:1665 Girl with a Pearl Earring.jpg) a better place from which to create an FP (if downsized). This file here is the one used by all the Wikipedias and has been featured, etc. The other file, although from the same museum source, is really quite different. It isn't an obvious case for simply overwriting this one per Commons:Overwriting existing files. -- Colin (talk) 09:08, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Regards, Yann (talk) 09:23, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
      • Yann, I have made no "political statement about children living standards". I'm talking about responsible photography, and responsible sourcing of a story. -- Colin (talk) 10:47, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
        • Among all probabilities, this track is probably just beside his home, as there are a lot of slums by railway tracks, just because there is unoccuppied land there. Not only it is dangerous, but it is also dirty and noisy. And yet it is his living habitat. It is the place where he spends most of his time, trying to make a living picking up whatever he could find there. So you doesn't know what you are talking about. Still your comment is a kind of political statement. It is arrogant and scornful. You want to decide for the child where he should stay and live. Regards, D (talk) 13:59, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
          • Yann, could you cool it a bit please. The comments you are making bear absolutely no resemblance to what I've written. I'm not making any political statement. I have not said anything about where he should stay and live. Have you read the links I posted below. It's about photographers and precisely where they choose to pose and compose their subjects, and the effect that has on other photographers posing subjects on railway lines and getting themselves killed. Those parallel lines trailing into the distance are a deadly magnet for photographers. This is nothing to do with the boy. -- Colin (talk) 14:43, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
            • You don't need to ping me. I always watch my nominations. Yes, your comment has everything to do with the boy. You assume that for him seating in the tracks is a game, or/and that this is a set up by the photographer to make the image more powerful. I think you are wrong on both points. Even if the boy's story is not the truth, he most probably just happens to be here when the photograph passed by. The tracks are his living environment. Why can't he be photographed where he lives? Regards, Yann (talk) 18:03, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
              • I have not given any indication, an indication in the slightest, that I think the boy thinks sitting on the tracks is a game. I cannot read the photographers's mind and have no interest in it. I haven't doubted the story, just question the ability for a responsible publisher to use it: it is just a random story on the internet. Real publishers would only accept such a story from a trusted source. I live next to a busy main road, but I don't photograph my children standing in the middle of it. It is perfectly possible to photograph this boy where he lives, without him sitting on the tracks. Yann, I don't think you've taken on board the links I posted below. This image/story cannot be responsibly published, and I'm far from the only person here that thinks so. I'm unwatching this page now. -- Colin (talk) 20:18, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral. (13:06, 22 April 2017 (UTC)) the photograph is visually stunning and is accompanied by background info that really makes it speak volumes more. I don't see the above oppose reasons as strong enough frankly. For concerns about children playing on the tracks, the image is already accompanied by a red box warning, and if you ask me, a child's first thought really could well be: "Look what happened to the kid who ran on the tracks!". That being said, I wouldn't be able to forgive the feeling within me to deny coverage of other stories told worldwide that are heard far less on places like the internet. Although Humans of New York is helping the cause recently, at least this image is freely licensed! Seb26 (talk) 23:26, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
    • Seb26, photos on railway tracks can look "visually stunning". That's why they are popular and why every year people are killed taking photos on railway tracks, and kids are killed playing on them. See this PetaPixel search for multiple articles describing deaths, the backlash that irresponsible publishers face if they post such images, and a good video highlighting how easy it is to get killed. Despite my comment about about third-world tracks, in fact more people died taking selfies in India than anywhere in world, study says. Way more. and that includes selifies taken in front of an oncoming train. Any publisher using such an image would face considerable negative press calling for the head of the photo editor. That means, despite any photographic qualities, the educational value of this image is extremely low, and on a project dedicated to educational media, that means it is not among our finest, and not FP. I really wish the photographer had taken their photos in a safe location. Please reconsider supporting this; it isn't the sort of image we want to encouage. -- Colin (talk) 08:14, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
  • While Seb26 has a point about how a child might view this photo, I've changed my vote based on Daniel's comment. Since I live in an area with lots of inactive rails, I tend to forget the perils in other places. Colin, while the article you link to says that there were 11 train related selfie deaths world-wide that year (which is bad enough) it is about selfie deaths, not train-related, and it also says that "Most of the Indian deaths were water-related". I think this would be a more relevant source. --cart-Talk 11:31, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
[2] The backlash against a photo on National Geographic's Instagram profile as recently as in the last two weeks definitely concerned me. Thank you for the links. I still feel that this boy's story is related to his home at the station. I don't fault the photographer at all in this respect and do not think that he deliberately decided to have the boy sit on the tracks. But it is right what you say, being an FP means it'll reach the main page and potentially expose Commons to backlash or outrage. I am going to be Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral because I can still see that out of all possible photographs and all possible poses made on one, this photograph is going to be the least likely to encourage people or children to do it. Seb26 (talk) 13:06, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I'm doubtful about the story mentioned in the file page. The beggar mafia is very strong in Asia. They even amputate the children to attract the sympathy. The children will say the story what their mafia leader teach them. They are mostly associated with tracks; so I see anything wrong in this photography though. They will quickly adapted to that environment and quickly achieve the skills to board and alight from a moving train. Jee 16:16, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Even if his "natural habitat" is among the rails the picture is a very bad double take on it. It says something in the description and shows something that can easily be interpreted in a different way. It also lacks any sensitivity (or rather humility from the photographer's part) that great photographers show in their work, you need not to go any further than GMB Akash, the undisputed king of Bangladeshi street photography to see what I mean. Also as Jkadavoor said above me, it is a thing in South-Asia and everyone should approach any story about a child amputee with caution. Is the story about this picture plausible? Yes, sadly tying up children and/or putting them in sacks and dumping in water part is all too familiar. Is it likely, with the amputation and all? Probably not, but in any case impossible to verify. Finally I'd just like to point out this is about Bangladesh, not India, which is a completely different beast even if they look similar to the rest of the world. -- KennyOMG (talk) 22:59, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Please talk more about the humility of the photographer. I feel like I could really learn something if you would expound on that a bit. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:02, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
  • @Daniel Case, WClarke, Martin Falbisoner, Kabelleger, Seb26: Your oppose votes (or comments) are for the wrong reason. Commons is not a place restricted to politically correct images. This is clear a case of COM:NOTCENSORED. I feel it is also a bit hypocritical, when some people criticize other FPC votes for not technical reasons (military, etc.). Regards, Yann (talk) 06:28, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
@Yann: First, although my !vote above seems to have started this cavalcade of opposes, I myself did not !vote oppose. Second, if by not participating in featuring this image I am saving lives, I'll take any term of abuse you hurl at me (I have opposed, at least initially, plenty of other FP candidates where I thought the photographer was putting themselves at risk). "Politically correct"? Apart from the increasing use of a once-ironic term borrowed from Chinese Communism becoming battered into meaninglessness when we use it for every point of view we wish to delegitimize without attempting to seriously attack the underlying arguments (to the point that it's often a tacit admission the other side has a point you don't want it to have), I fail to see what is "political" about a very real danger. If National Geographic is not immune from this criticism, why should we be? Daniel Case (talk) 06:39, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
OK, I changed my comment above. Yann (talk) 06:58, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Not featuring a photograph is not censorship, and not encuraging photographers to get themself killed and traumatizing other people in doing so has hardly anything to do with political correctness. IMHO. --Kabelleger (talk) 07:07, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
  • I think the censorship argument would make sense if we were voting to delete or keep this image. But this image and its story will stay available on this site long after this vote. The selection of featured pictures is clearly very strategic and is evidently about advertising the project just as much as identifying technical quality. There is evidence to suggest this could harm the project, so it is for that reason that I don't think this should be featured. Seb26 (talk) 12:59, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
