Long shot. Very long shot[edit]

Mazda 929 NL 1985.jpg

This is a long shot. You are permitted to say "no". However, the only certainty is that if I do not share my problem with you, you won't even get the opportunity to think about it.

I attach a picture of what we in England think of as a Mazda 929. Although the license plate is Dutch the photograph was taken by me in Cambridge, England (I think in Brookside, a little street between the Botanic Gardens and Lensfield Road, in case you know the city). It was taken using an Olympus OM2 35 mm camera which was quite a good camera in its day, but I think I may have been short of funds and it was probably taken using low quality colour slide film (probable Boots or Photo-Porst own-brand). In any case by the time I scanned it and uploaded it to wikipedia it was pretty dire. Various well intentioned wiki-comrades have improved it over the years. I don't think they ever sold a lot of these cars, and although there are other photos of these cars on wiki-commons, none of them should ever be mistaken for a wiki-show-stopper. "My" moderately dire wiki picture has been used for wiki entries on the car in various languages (not, I am pretty sure, linked by me).

Why should you care? Indeed. But then again, maybe you're ahead of me.

I recently spotted that you had done a brilliant job of improving an only slightly less dire picture I uploaded some years ago of an Austin Montego. Also, as it happens, in Cambridge. Is there any chance that you might be tempted to work the same magic on this one? For information, I am pretty sure that the last time I saw the car it really was a sort of woodbine shade of metallic green. It's a colour with which some software programmes seem to have difficulty. The houses in the background are a sort of dirty greyish brown (most of them are still there). I agree that the "vaguely golden" coloured version of the car looks better, but I just thought I'd mention it. I have no particular "pride of authorship" preference between green and gold. Just thought I'd mention it.

To repeat, you are more than welcome to think and say "hell - no". (Though you could leave out the hell bit if you wished.) But you will appreciate that there is - according to me - nothing to be lost by asking the question. And thank you, since you did, for reading it.

@Charles01:; Hi there. Thanks for letting me know about this- I'll take a proper look at it when I have enough time to do it justice. All the best, Ubcule (talk) 19:25, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Ray Charles[edit]

If I were to upload a new update on the Pepsi ray charles with ray Charles would that save the photo from deletion? A.R.M. 08:51, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

@ARMcgrath: - I've replied to this at Commons:Deletion requests/File:PepsistuffRayCharles.jpg. Ubcule (talk) 16:27, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

@Ubcule: so I can’t upload a new photo with the Pepsi can without the Ray Charles okay. Didn’t even think this would happen. A.R.M. 21:06, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

@ARMcgrath:; You can upload a picture of a Pepsi can. But not one with the Ray Charles picture showing, unless it can be demonstrated that the Ray Charles picture itself is freely usable. Sorry. Ubcule (talk) 21:11, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

I uploaded the same photo but I cropped the ray Charles photo so it’s not visible but the can itself. A.R.M. 21:25, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

@ARMcgrath:; That looks fine, thanks for the upload. Ubcule (talk) 21:37, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

No problem A.R.M. 21:38, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
