This star, with one point broken, symbolizes the featured candidates on Wikipedia.

Featured pictures are images that add significantly to articles, either by illustrating article content particularly well, or being eye-catching to the point where users will want to read its accompanying article. Taking the adage that "a picture is worth a thousand words," the images featured on Wikipedia:Featured pictures should illustrate a Wikipedia article in such a way as to add significantly to that article, according to the featured picture criteria.

Promoting an image

If you believe an image should be featured, create a subpage (use the "For Nominations" field, below) and add the subpage to the current nominations section.

For promotion, if an image is listed here for ten days with five or more reviewers in support and the consensus is in its favor, it can be added to the Wikipedia:Featured pictures list. Consensus is generally regarded to be a two-third majority in support, including the nominator and/or creator of the image; however, anonymous votes are generally disregarded, as are opinions of sockpuppets. If necessary, decisions about close candidacies will be made on a case-by-case basis. Nominations started in December are given three extra days, due to the holidays slowing down activity here.

The archive contains all opinions and comments collected for candidate nominations and their nomination results.

If you nominate an image here, please consider also uploading and nominating it at Commons to help ensure that the pictures can be used not just in the English Wikipedia but on all other Wikimedia projects as well.

Delisting an image

A featured picture can be nominated for delisting if you feel it no longer lives up to featured picture standards. You may also request a featured picture be replaced with a superior image. Create a subpage (use the "For Delists" field, below) and add the subpage to the current nominations section.

Please leave a note on the talk page of the original FPC nominator (and creator/uploader, if appropriate) to let them know the delisting is being debated. The user may be able to address the issues and avoid the delisting of the picture.

For delisting, if an image is listed here for ten days with five or more reviewers supporting a delist or replace, and the consensus is in its favor, it will be delisted from Wikipedia:Featured pictures. Consensus is generally regarded to be a two-third majority in support, including the nominator. However, images are sometimes delisted despite having fewer than five in support of their removal, and there is currently no consensus on how best to handle delist closures. Note that anonymous votes are generally disregarded, as are opinions of sockpuppets. If necessary, decisions about close candidacies will be made on a case-by-case basis. As with regular nominations, delist nominations are given three extra days to run if started in December.

  • Note that delisting an image does not mean deleting it. Delisting from Featured pictures in no way affects the image's status in its article(s).

How to comment for Candidate Images

  • Write Support, if you approve of the picture. A reason is optional.
  • Write Oppose, followed by your reasoning, if you disapprove of the picture. All objections should be accompanied by a specific rationale that, if addressed, would make you support the image. If your concern is one that can only be addressed by the creator, and if they haven't nominated or commented on the image, and if they are a Wikipedian, you should notify them directly.
  • You can weak support or weak oppose instead, so that your opinion will be weighed as half of a "full" opinion.
    • To change your opinion, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.
  • If you think a nominated image obviously fails the featured picture criteria, write Speedy close followed by your reasons. Nominations may be closed early if this is the case.
Recommendations added early in the process may be disregarded if they do not address concerns and/or improvements that arise later in the debate. Reviewers are advised to monitor the progress of a nomination and update their votes accordingly.
Prior to giving an opinion, the image should be assessed on its quality as displayed at full size (high-resolution) in an image editing program. Please note that the images are only displayed at thumbnail size on this page. The thumbnail links to the image description page which, in turn, links to the high-resolution version.

How to comment for Delist Images

  • Write Keep, followed by your reasons for keeping the picture.
  • Write Delist, followed by your reasons for delisting the picture.
  • Write Delist and Replace if you believe the image should be replaced by a better picture.
  • You can weak keep, weak delist or weak delist and replace instead, so that your opinion will be weighed as half of a "full" opinion.
    • To change your opinion, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.
Please remember to be civil, not to bite the newbies and to comment on the image, not the person.

You may find the glossary useful when you encounter acronyms or jargon in other voters' comments. You can also link to it by using {{FPCgloss}}.

Editing candidates

If you feel you could improve a candidate by image editing, please feel free to do so, but do not overwrite or remove the original. Instead, upload your edit with a different file name (e.g., add "edit" to the file name), and display it below the original nomination. Edits should be appropriately captioned in sequential order (e.g., Edit 1, Edit 2, etc), and describe the modifications that have been applied.

Is my monitor adjusted correctly?

Gray contrast test image.svg
In a discussion about the brightness of an image, it is necessary to know if the computer display is properly adjusted. Displays differ greatly in their ability to show shadow detail. There are four dark grey circles in the adjacent image. If you can discern three (or even four) of the circles, your monitor can display shadow detail correctly. If you see fewer than three circles, you may need to adjust the monitor and/or computer display settings. Some displays cannot be adjusted for ideal shadow detail. Please take this into account when voting.
Highlight test image.svg
Displays also differ greatly in their ability to show highlight detail. There are light grey circles in the adjacent image. If you can discern three (or even four) of the circles, your monitor can display highlight detail correctly. If you see fewer than three circles, you may need to adjust the monitor and/or computer display settings (probably reduce the contrast setting). Some displays cannot be adjusted for ideal highlight detail. Please take this into account when voting.
Colortest.png
On a gamma-adjusted display, the four circles in the color image blend into the background when seen from a few feet away. If they do not, you could adjust the gamma setting (found in the computer's settings, not on the display), until they do. This may be very difficult to attain, and a slight error is not detrimental. Uncorrected PC displays usually show the circles darker than the background.
Note that on most consumer LCD displays (laptop or flat screen), viewing angle strongly affects these images. Correct adjustment on one part of the screen might be incorrect on another part for a stationary head position. Click on the images for more technical information. If possible, calibration with a hardware monitor calibrator is recommended.

Fez gameplay[edit]

Voting period ends on 8 Oct 2014 at 22:18:21 (UTC)

OriginalFez trial gameplay, demonstrating the rotation mechanic and game objectives
Reason
A rare free use release of extended gameplay from a high-profile video game. It illustrates the notoriously-difficult-to-describe rotation mechanic from the game, and has potential to illustrate many other gameplay concept articles if it were to be split into smaller clips. This video is the best release of unedited gameplay that I have seen in my time with the project.

Japanese occupation currency (Philippines)[edit]

Voting period ends on 8 Oct 2014 at 06:13:58 (UTC)

Reason
High quality, high EV (presented as a complete set). During World War II, the Japanese Military issued invasion currency for Netherlands Indian roepiah, Burmese rupee, and Singapore, Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak and Brunei. The Japanese occupation of the Philippines (1942–45) was no different. This is a complete set of Japanese government-issued Philippine peso. The effect of wartime hyperinflation can be seen in the rapid increase of denomination value put into circulation. Pencil notations on the obverse of the notes beginning with "CM" indicate these notes were part of the Chase Manhattan Money Museum before being donated to the Smithsonian in 1979.

Original – A 13-note complete denomination and type set of World War II Japanese government-issued Philippine peso (1942–45).

Winslow Homer - The Fog Warning[edit]

Voting period ends on 7 Oct 2014 at 19:31:44 (UTC)

Original – The Fog Warning is one of the best among his many great works, a dramatic moment when the fisherman is fighting to get back to the boat before caught in the fog. The psychological drama of a fisherman in danger of getting lost at sea is depicted in this painting. The fisherman who was out fishing for halibut is surprised out at sea by the fog. He has grabbed the oars and he is on his way towards the ship, to escape from being fogbound. The painting is more disturbing than Homers previous calm sunny country life scenes.
Reason
Winslow Homer (1836 – 1910) was an original and interesting American painter, best known for his paintings with marine subjects. He is considered one of the foremost painters in 19th-century America and a preeminent figure in American art.

Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose[edit]

Voting period ends on 7 Oct 2014 at 11:48:56 (UTC)

Original – The models are Dolly (left, aged 11) and Polly (right, aged 7), the daughters of Sargent's friend illustrator Fred Barnard; they were selected because of the blonde colour of their hair.
Reason
A good quality, eye catching, high resolution image painted in 1885 when the artist John Singer Sargent was attempting move away from the scandal he caused the previous year with his Portrait of Madame X. Only a few moments each day gave the lighting effect he wanted to capture of the purple tinge of evening light.

The Balcony by Edouard Manet [edit]

Voting period ends on 6 Oct 2014 at 22:33:45 (UTC)

Original – On the balcony are depicted to the left is Berthe Morisot, who became in 1874 the wife of Manet's brother, Eugène. In the centre is the painter Jean Baptiste Antoine Guillemet. On the right is violinist Fanny Claus.
Reason
It is an important and well known painting made 1868 by Édouard Manet. It was one of the paintings that together with Manet's The Luncheon on the Grass (Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe), painted 1863 marked the beginning of the impressionism. It is considered inovative and iconic and it went against the conventions. When exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1869, it was considered unusual. It depicts among others Berthe Morisot, Manet's favourite model 'for the first time. She was a painter herself, and Édouard Manet's syster in law.

The Museé d'Orsay describes the painting:

The painting tells no story or anecdote; the protagonists are frozen, as if isolated in an interior dream, evidence that Manet was freeing himself from academic constraints, despite the obvious reference to Goya's Majas at the Balcony. At its presentation at the 1869 Salon, this enigmatic group portrait was overwhelmingly misunderstood.[1]

The contrast of colors with the background completely black, the white faces and clothes, the blue tie of the man, and the green railings bold green drew much attention, at the time when the public was used to the dull academic paintings and their style.

Fatima Masuma Qum Dome[edit]

Voting period ends on 6 Oct 2014 at 05:36:23 (UTC)

Original – Dome of the tomb of Fatimah Masumah in Qum
Reason
I'd like to think it's a different kind of image to what is usually seen here. We have few Persian images and I think this is one of the finest in terms of quality. Gives a nice view of what an Islamic dome looks like.

Dendrogramma enigmatica[edit]

Voting period ends on 5 Oct 2014 at 19:12:16 (UTC)

Original – Dendrogramma enigmatica
Reason
Image meets size and technical criteria and has high encyclopedic value. We are unlikely to get any better photos of the species since no one appears to have found any more of them. The image comes from the original open access paper so is pretty much the definitive image at this point. I'd like to get it to featured status so we have something to run on the main page for Open Access Week.

Monroe Street Bridge[edit]

Original – Construction of the Monroe Street Bridge, Spokane, Washington. August 3, 1911.
Reason
High historic and encyclopedic value; the image was taken in 1911 of what would become the largest concrete deck arch bridge in the US and third longest in the world. Quality of the image, high resolution (3617 × 735 = 2,658,495) and very clean for a pic over 100 years old.

    • I looked at that, despite my slow connection, and I'm not too sure the extra 50 pixels is worth the effort, or that it would be an extra 50 pixels after restoration work. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 23:43, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
In all honesty, I think that settling is often a good way to prevent us from ever getting a better copy. People won't go the extra mile if we're so ready to accept "good enough". Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:09, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
  • If we were talking, say, 1250px I'd be all for it. But it's 50px. Even that would technically be "good enough" and well under the current minimum. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 05:14, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
  • I don't think we should settle for either. The LoC do offer to make higher-resolution scans. They might charge for it, but I don't think "I'm not willing to pay" is a particularly good defense. Adam Cuerden (talk) 08:07, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Chehel Sotoun[edit]

Voting period ends on 3 Oct 2014 at 14:29:49 (UTC)

Original – Inside view of the hall which serves as a museum.
Edit 1 Attempted to rectify parallax errors
Reason
One of the most taxing images I have taken. I was shooting handheld and the inside light was not ideal. Add to that the people moving around, and the almost 180 degree view, led to some frustrating moments and tired hands. I'll admit the image is probably not perfect AKA Diliff standard ;), but the view and the fact that we have few images from Iran are all positive points IMO.

    • I suspect that it's a matter of using the cylindrical perspective. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 08:32, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
My opinion is that photos that distort their subject in a misleading way are not suitable as encyclopedic content. I don't know what it is with these stitched-together post-processed images -- whether the software is not up to the job, or whether it is misused -- but in so many of them the end result just looks wrong to the eye. 81.157.14.203 (talk) 19:53, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
  • When it comes to such a wide field of view, it is impossible to avoid distortions. One has to choose between a small non-distorted area which may not give the full picture or a wider view with the expected distortions --Muhammad(talk) 21:13, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Giorgione - Young bride - Laura[edit]

Voting period ends on 2 Oct 2014 at 20:14:33 (UTC)

Original – Young Bride (“Laura”)
Reason
An interesting Italian bridal portrait from the sixteenth century. According to art historian Norbert Schneider's book The Art of the Portrait, 2002, capter. Giorgione: Portrait of a Young Lady ("Laura"): ... it is only from the prudish perspective of the nineteenth or early twentieth century that the baring of a breast would be viewed as debauched or meretricious. In the sixteenth century, nudity did not provoke disapproval, but was shown publicly and uninhibitedly. This painting, too, was publicly shown, probably by a proud noble who wished to celebrate his bride's attractiveness - ... - as well as her virtue and chastity. The laurel was considered a symbol of virtue... The veil wound about her shoulders and upper body is a bridal veil, and her bared right breast alludes to the proverbial chastity of the Amazons...[3]

Piero di Cosimo's Portrait of Simonetta Vespucci[edit]

Voting period ends on 2 Oct 2014 at 19:21:58 (UTC)

Original – a Simonetta Vespucci, a picture painted after her death, with the help of a medal representing her from profile
Reason
It is a well known symbolic painting Piero di Cosimo. According to art historian Norbert Schneider's book The Art of the Portrait, 2002, capter: Piero di Cosimo:Sinonetta Vespucci: Her contemporaries would not have been offended by her naked breasts. As in Titian's Venus at her Mirror, this motif may be seen as an allusion to the "Venus pudica"[4], or "chaste" Venus.

    • Do NOT put any other information inside the FPCresult template. It should be copied and pasted exactly.
  2. Add the image to:
  3. Add the image to the proper sub-page of Wikipedia:Featured pictures - newest on top.
    The caption for a Wikipedian created image should read "Description at Article, by Creator". For a non-Wikipedian, it should be similar, but if the creator does not have an article, use an external link if appropriate. For images with substantial editing by one or more Wikipedians, but created by someone else, use "Description at Article, by Creator (edited by Editor)" (all editors involved should be clear from the nomination). Additionally, the description is optional - if it's essentially the same as the article title, then just use "Article, by Creator". Numerous examples can be found on the various Featured Pictures subpages.
  4. Add the image to the appropriate section of Wikipedia:Featured pictures - newest on left and remove the oldest from the right so that there are always three in each section.
  5. Add the Featured Picture tag and star to the image page using {{Featured picture|page_name}} (replace page_name with the nomination page name, i.e., the page_name from Wikipedia:Featured_picture_candidates/page_name). To add this template you most likely will have to click the "create" button on the upper right if the "edit" button is not present, generally if the image originates from Commons.
  6. If an edited or alternative version of the originally nominated image is promoted, make sure that all articles contain the Featured Picture version, as opposed to the original.
  7. Notify the nominator or co-nominators by placing {{subst:PromotedFPC|File:file_name.xxx}} on each nominator's talk page. For example: {{subst:PromotedFPC|File:Blue morpho butterfly.jpg}}.
  8. If the image was created by a Wikipedian, place {{subst:UploadedFP|File:file_name.xxx}} on the creator's talk page. For example: {{subst:UploadedFP|File:Blue morpho butterfly.jpg}}.
  9. Move the nomination entry to the top of the "Recently closed nominations" section. It will remain there for three days after closing so others can review the nomination. This is done by simply moving the line {{Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Page name}} to the top of the section.
  10. Add the nomination entry to the bottom of the October archive. This is done by simply adding the line {{Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Page name}} from this page to the bottom of the archive.
  11. If the nomination is listed at Template:FPC urgents, remove it.


Delist closing procedure[edit]

Note that delisting an image does not equal deleting it. Delisting from Featured pictures in no way affects the image's status in its article/s.

    {{FPCresult|Kept|}} --~~~~
    • Do NOT put any other information inside the FPCresult template. It should be copied and pasted exactly.
  2. Move the nomination entry to the top of the "Recently closed nominations" section. It will remain there for three days after closing so others can review the nomination. This is done by simply moving the line {{Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/delist/Image name}} to the top of the section.
  3. Add the nomination entry to the bottom of the Archived removal requests. This is done by simply adding the line {{Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/delist/Image name}} to the bottom of the Retained section of the archive.
  4. Optionally leave a note on the picture's talk page.

If consensus is to DELIST, perform the following:

  1. Place the following text at the bottom of the WP:FPC/delist/subpage:
    {{FPCresult|Delisted|}} --~~~~
    • Do NOT put any other information inside the FPCresult template. It should be copied and pasted exactly.
  2. Replace the {{Featured picture}} tag from the image with {{FormerFeaturedPicture|delist/''Image name''}}.
  3. Remove the image from the appropriate sub-page of Wikipedia:Featured pictures and the appropriate section of Wikipedia:Featured pictures thumbs.
  4. Move the nomination entry to the top of the "Recently closed nominations" section. It will remain there for three days after closing so others can review the nomination. This is done by simply moving the line {{Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/delist/Image name}} to the top of the section.
  5. Add the nomination entry to the bottom of the Archived removal requests. This is done by simply adding the line {{Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/delist/Image name}} page to the bottom of the Delisted section of the archive.

If consensus is to REPLACE, perform the following:

  1. Place the following text at the bottom of the WP:FPC/delist/subpage:
    {{FPCresult|Replaced|}} with File:NEW_IMAGE_FILENAME.JPG --~~~~
    • Do NOT put any other information inside the FPCresult template. It should be copied and pasted exactly.
    • Replace NEW_IMAGE_FILENAME.JPG with the name of the replacement file.
  2. Replace the {{Featured picture}} tag from the delisted image with {{FormerFeaturedPicture|delist/''Image name''}}.
  3. Update the replacement picture's tag, adding the tag {{Featured picture|delist/image_name}} (replace image_name with the nomination page name, i.e., the image_name from Wikipedia:Featured_picture_candidates/delist/image_name). Remove any no longer applicable tags from the original, replacement and from any other alternatives. If the alternatives were on Commons and no longer have any tags, be sure to tag the description page with {{missing image}}.
  4. Replace the delisted Featured Picture in all articles with the new replacement Featured Picture version. Do NOT replace the original in non-article space, such as Talk Pages, FPC nominations, archives, etc.
  5. Ensure that the replacement image is included on the appropriate sub-page of Wikipedia:Featured pictures and the appropriate section of Wikipedia:Featured pictures thumbs. Do this by replacing the original image with the new replacement image; do not add the replacement as a new Featured Picture.
  6. Move the nomination entry to the top of the "Recently closed nominations" section. It will remain there for three days after closing so others can review the nomination. This is done by simply moving the line {{Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/delist/Image name}} to the top of the section.
  7. Add the nomination entry to the bottom of the Archived removal requests. This is done by simply adding the line {{Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/delist/Image name}} to the bottom of the Replaced section of the archive.

  • I guess I'll jump in first. It has a somewhat unusual pattern - my instinct says half-toning, but it's actually not quite right for halftoning, so it may be one of the obscurer photographic printing techniques. In any case, it's decent resolution despite whatever that is; we've certainly had things where the film grain made the effective resolution substantially less.

  • Support alt as nominatorArmbrust The Homunculus 18:45, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment I'm slightly worried this might look better than the hamburger really is. Any information about how much manipulation of the burger happened? Adam Cuerden (talk) 18:58, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
    • It looks pretty realistic to me. It looks fairly 'pristine' and probably re-arranged slightly for better presentation (but only in the same way we generally try to present a landscape accurately but in favourable lighting conditions when possible). In terms of the ingredients and their texture, it looks authentic to me. I'm wondering though how he managed to get the burger from the restaurant to a studio set up before the cheese congealed! It looks reasonably fresh. Anyway, this is all just educated guesswork. I'd also be interested to know what manipulation (both digital and physical) took place to present the burger like this. Ðiliff «» (Talk) 21:38, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment - First off, I can't be the only one who feels uncomfortable looking this sandwich. Maybe its from watching Supersize Me one too many times. Also, I notice brown specks around the sandwich on the bottom left corner of it. Are they crumb bits or the sort? GamerPro64 22:03, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Comment - I agree that there is something (or things) off-putting about the photo, but it's hard to diagnose. I think part of it is the way the middle bun hangs downward and confuses the viewer's perspective, suggesting that the burger is much closer the camera/viewer than it actually was. Another factor that might contribute to the in-your-face quality of the picture is the very tight, front-and-center cropping. Just as an experiment, I uploaded an edit that expands the space around the burger by increasing canvas size 125%. I also moved the burger slightly downward in the hopes that this composition might feel more natural (see the many featured pictures of foodstuffs by User:Fir0002) Tokugawapants (talk) 06:25, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Weak support alt - I've considered this several times, but ultimately I keep falling back to the idea that a good picture of food has some context (i.e. is not a cutout). Of our woefully underpopulated category, my favourite is easily File:Various grains.jpg. It is clear, well defined, yet also provides a little context. That being said, this is a very good shot of a Big Mac, and he must have had a friendly server to not get the mishmash I always end up with. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:44, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment - I went back and made some minor edits to the picture. My editing has changed a lot since then, but I just did some minor cleanup. For those wondering about this picture, it's just a plain Big Mac that I picked up explicitly to photograph. I asked for the cheese to be separate, so I would be able to move stuff around on the burger. The cheese normally acts as glue that really prevents you from making it look good after you get it. To prep the Big Mac for photos, I just rearranged the contents so it was pulled toward the front edge. You do this so you can actually see the contents clearly, otherwise it gets buried by the bun. When it's set, I just add the cheese to it and shoot. Evan-Amos (talk) 05:38, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    • Very interesting, thanks for sharing. :) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 06:34, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    • Indeed. Thank you! Adam Cuerden (talk) 09:58, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

      • Probably one of the reasons the image ended up here. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 16:00, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support either. I'm not sure how you could put a Big Mac in its proper context. In it's cardboard box? Sitting on a McDonalds tray in a restaurant? Either way, you might have better context but you'd have a much poorer view of the Big Mac itself... Ðiliff «» (Talk) 09:52, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    Half-eaten next to an overflowing bin in the street with a single sliced pickle next it being sniffed disdainfully by a stray dog. That's how I normally see them. Belle (talk) 12:45, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
    • In the interests of encyclopaedic accuracy, do you suggest we investigate high street bins searching for the most authoritatively presented Big Mac we can find? ;-) Ðiliff «» (Talk) 14:09, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
      When I tried reproducing this (the results were nowhere near satisfactory, and I didn't go to the extent Evan did) I tried positioning the BM on top its box, with a white wall behind it. Perhaps not as colorfully contextual as a dumpster (*wink*), but it goes well with the impersonal McD persona. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:58, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support either, prefer alt. I think I'd have preferred a shadow, instead of a full cutout, but I reckon this'll do nicely. Adam Cuerden (talk) 09:58, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support either Nice, especially since food is quite rarely nominated here. Brandmeistertalk 11:48, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support alt - While both images are pretty good in their own right, the alt comes off as less off putting to me. GamerPro64 15:03, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose until clarified Is this a real Big Mac, or is it some form of "substitute" made to be photographed? I've never seen one looking like that (i.e. cleanly and well arranged) in any MacD place I've ordered one, anywhere in the world... ;-) --Janke | Talk 08:27, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
    See the photographer's comments above. Belle (talk) 08:43, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
    Indeed. I think myself and the nominator were the only ones who !voted before the clarification was made. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 09:36, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
    As I understand it, the photographer used only the real ingredients but strived to photograph it in an ideal state, rather than as typically prepared and served by a pimply-faced teenager who wishes he was somewhere else. I don't think that's necessarily any different to (to use another photographic example) going out and taking a photo of the most pristine flower or the butterfly with the least tattered wings, taking a photo of a landscape on a sunny day with blue sky as opposed to overcast and flat, or something like that. It's not misrepresenting reality necessarily, it's just trying to get the most aesthetic view of the subject. But whether that makes it representative, well that's a matter of debate. As photographers, I think we naturally lean towards aesthetics, but I can see both sides of this. Ðiliff «» (Talk) 12:16, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I share Diliff's worries, here. I'm not particularly keen on striving to display this in a positive way. J Milburn (talk) 20:02, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
    • As opposed to...? Landscapes? Other products? A whopper (which, BTW, we really need a better picture of)? — Crisco 1492 (talk) 23:46, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
      • There seems to be a kind of bias among a lot of commenters against attempting to display something which is 1) a commercial product and 2) generally regarded as distasteful in a professional light (which reflects positively on an object with a negative connotation). FP regularly prefers sites popular with tourists devoid of people, plants which in peak bloom and virgin condition, household products which look fresh out of the catalog, and many others. While I think this could be taken too far (look at how McDonalds photographs the Big Mac) this particular image strikes me as being along the same lines as many others which we have passed before - balancing between honesty and professional. As a follow-up, here's some featured salad. That's a lot nicer than I generally plate one, and probably a lot more aesthetic than when you do it, too (if it's not, by all means please have me over for dinner). But no one was terribly upset about that. 24.222.214.125 (talk) 01:50, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
        • I agree, but I think I see where the problem is: the Big Mac is instantly recognizable as belonging to a particular entity, is still available for sale (and heavily promoted), and is synonymous with junk food. The first two make the commercial value of featuring such an image on par with a current video game, film, or TV series (i.e. conceivably affecting the company's bottom line), while the third is a matter of prejudice. That being said, I firmly believe that we should judge the image itself, in all cases, rather than any possible commercial/promotional effect. I mean, File:ULPower UL260i.jpg is straight from the company's advertising material, but there were no complaints when it was nominated. Reviewers let the image speak for itself. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 02:30, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
          • Agreed also. I think it's necessary to leave ideology at the door when participating in FPC. Obviously we don't want to overtly support a company's product, but the image is a long way from anything that we would normally considered promotional. We've established that it's presented better than is normally the case by a worker at a McDonalds restaurant, but it's clearly not the kind of photo normally seen in advertising either and I cannot really conceive that McDonalds would benefit from, or indeed desire for us to feature an image of its signature burger in this manner.

I'm getting sick just looking at it. Sca (talk) 13:39, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose I think the fact that it has been arranged in such a way as to make it appear more substantial makes it a poor representation of the subject (It's like a push-up bra for burgers) Belle (talk) 01:46, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Ma'am, I believe this is the storage container you are looking for. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 11:44, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
    I want one; the only drawbacks for me are that I don't eat meat and already have the bra filled Belle (talk) 23:15, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment. I think it is a fair and reasonable depiction of a Big Mac. OK, so often they come out a bit more squashed than this, but you could say the same about a picture of a piece of fruit, or a flower, or whatever. Often the ones you buy or see are not as perfect as the pretty picture. The best ones are obviously going to be chosen to be photographed (normally). 109.147.185.178 (talk) 22:56, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose I don't like that things were pulled to the edge. To me an ideal pic would have a cross section view alongside the original unmodified one --Muhammad(talk) 08:54, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Closing note -- Well, I am not sure why the nomination is still not closed. I can see 6 support alt. and hence, just make it go. Armbrust, Adam Cuerden,Brandmeister, GamerPro64, Rreagan007 and Diliff crosses the threshold. But 4 opposes(when they say it, they say it to both) and Crisco have weak support of alt.

Not Promoted --The herald 02:30, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Not enough consensus The herald 02:30, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
  • If you're going to close, especially a contested nomination like this one, you should probably be aware the consensus is in fact usually regarded as 2/3rds. In this case, the percentage is below in either case so to some extent it's a non-issue. But be cognizant of how the project is run. It was likely not closed promptly because it is rather close. 24.222.214.125 (talk) 04:30, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
I am not sure with what you say. Are you saying that it must be considered as a close much before officially closing it? Then in that case, I don't think I am wrong. Neither consensus nor votes can pass this nomination and hence its better to be closed officially.. The herald 12:26, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
What I'm saying is that you should take time to review the closing rules before actually closing nominations. While the closure here is, in my opinion, correct not knowing what consensus for passing is (80% vs 66%) is a pretty major oversight. 24.222.214.125 (talk) 15:35, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

High quality scans of all the current banknotes of the Rupiah (including the 1k, which doesn't seem to be in production anymore). Can't let Godot have a category all to himself now, can we?

  • Comment: I'm a bit troubled by the licensing. These images cannot be both CC and PD (which is what, for instance, the categories currently suggest), as there are elements of CC which are not compatible with the PD. If, in scanning the notes, you have done enough to be able to claim copyright (which I don't think you have under US law), then the image is CC; if you haven't, and your claim about the licensing of banknote designs is correct (I'm happy to defer to you) then it's PD. Perhaps you could explain the PD status of the design in the information template, before reserving the copyright tag for the "final" copyright status of the files. J Milburn (talk) 09:08, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
    • Under US law, you are correct, as sweat of the brow is not recognized for claims of copyright. Under UK law, however, I am allowed to assert a CC license over the scans (similar to how Adam has asserted a CC license on his more involved restorations). Owing to the effort it took to prepare these scans (tracking down the notes [the 1k in particular was hard to get in decent shape, as those are getting sparse], cleaning off the dust and gunk, avoiding Photoshop issues), I've decided that I want to ask that reusers credit me for the scans. A bit further detail can be found at Commons:Reuse of PD-Art photographs. This dual licensing has passed VIC on Commons on several occasions so far, and we've never had issues with Adam's dual licensed scans. (For the PD-ness of the banknotes, the template includes links to the pertinent law)
      I have already separated the copyright templates for the banknote and on the scan with headers ("Scan" and "Banknote", respectively). I could add "Owing to the effort involved in scanning, in countries recognizing sweat of the brow the author releases this image under a (license tag). Otherwise, the author requests attribution if these images are reused". if you prefer. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 09:35, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Needs slightly more work. Look at File:New Mexico territory coat of arms (illustrated, 1876).jpg, for example - there's a lot of white threads that appear to be paper fibres that got stuck to the ink. I think we could get these slightly better. Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:23, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
    • Adam- I see what you're referring to. Just to clarify, does "we" mean me, or you? Because we discussed the prospect of you helping on some of the images, but when all the TIF files were loaded and I left a note on your talk page I never heard back. Your restoration skill for the issue you describe with the New Mexico file is stronger than mine, so your help would be appreciated.--Godot13 (talk) 13:41, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
I'll do my best. Adam Cuerden (talk) 16:24, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, if you have any reservation about completing in time, please let me know and I will put the nomination on hold for a day or two.--Godot13 (talk) 05:08, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
In all honesty, it probably wouldn't hurt, at least until I can get a few [?] done, and know the exact scope and time sink. Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:51, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Please let me know which ones you've identified and which you want to work on, and I will do the rest. I understand the desire to have everything in the best shape it can be, but I really would like to wrap this nomination up as you know there is limited time before the cup is over and your comment (without a 5th support) effectively puts the nomination in limbo.--Godot13 (talk) 18:50, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Not having heard back, and in a desire to both let this nomination run its course and not unduly burden you, I've started some of the fiber cleaning on several files. I uploaded a new version of New Mexico and will upload more later.--Godot13 (talk) 07:35, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment - The following files have been tweaked per above: Title page, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming (45). Changes are very slight. More to follow.--Godot13 (talk) 18:33, 25 September 2014 (UTC) --Godot13 (talk) 15:57, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Please suspend this. This could take a bit. Have you updated the TIFFs as well, because I'm half-way through Arkansas, and there's a TON of stuff on the right wing (as seen looking at it). Adam Cuerden (talk) 14:19, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Adam Cuerden-You do not read/respond to the messages left here. I have already done about 60% of them. I will finish them. No, I have not yet updated the TIFs, only the JPEGs.--Godot13 (talk) 16:46, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
It would be nice if you had said the TIFFs weren't updated before I downloaded them to check whether anything needed done and put a few hours in, presuming you had missed things. Adam Cuerden (talk) 19:15, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the miscommunication. I thought I was being clear here. I will make it up to you... You said something about playing cards a few days back, I may be able to help with that in a few weeks.--Godot13 (talk) 20:01, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
It happens. Just had put today aside for this, then half-way through, saw you said you had done the one I was in the middle of, and finding a fair bit to fix on. Adam Cuerden (talk) 20:25, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Adam TIFs are updated to most current version (list of completed files above). We will have better coordination in the future. If not for Cup, I would have no issue slowing it all down. Win or loose, I won't be competing again. But I do want to make every effort possible. When the rest of the files are completed (8-10 hours, perhaps optimistically) will I need to work on getting additional reviewers to view the images and/or leave comments?--Godot13 (talk) 21:02, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
If I haven't updated before this closes, you may assume my Support. As for the other reviews, what generally is done is to leave a message on all current reviewers' talk pages, telling them the nomination is updated. Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:23, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I had planned to send a note to each reviewer as soon as the revisions were complete.--Godot13 (talk) 00:38, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Just noting that I still support this nomination; unfortunately we have a very slow, restricted (and meagre!) data allowance so I can't download all of them but the further work done that I've checked has enhanced these even more. With my sincere apologies to Armburst who will no doubt have to sort my indenting/formatting yet again ;-) SagaciousPhil - Chat 07:43, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. Godot is working on it, and will finish it soon, AGF. And I always liked Louis Prang. Hafspajen (talk) 09:22, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Mother and child in desert[edit]

OriginalCaption provided by the U.S. Government: "A common sight among the Armenian refugees in Syria. An Armenian child dead in the fields within sight of help and safety at Aleppo."
Reason
Perhaps one of the most dramatic eye-witness photographs of the Armenian Genocide. An Armenian woman is trying to help her child who's laying dead in the middle of the Syrian desert. Great EV and good quality for such an old photograph.

  • Weak oppose The attempt to remove film grain has killed some details. Compare the child on the left's trousers to an earlier version in the file history. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:13, 17 September 2014 (UTC) Support. Looks a lot better. Adam Cuerden (talk) 04:23, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
I made the current version, and I see what you are referring to. I had taken steps to bring back in the details lost, but I may have rendered too soon. When I get back to my other computer I will see if I can re-render and re-upload. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 04:00, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
That's what I was hoping would happen. Honestly, you don't really need to worry about grain so much [some grain is usually perfectly acceptable], though I think there is a little more damage to fix: That lighter patch on the child, below the woman's elbow looks like dirt on the image to me. A bit of burn should fix that. Adam Cuerden (talk) 04:18, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Okay, so I was right about the detail corrections, I'd forgotten to include them in the final render. So I made a new one with those in, and now I'm looking at the whole thing more critically. I think you're right about the grain in that I did too much to remove it. So I'm going to upload a new version of it in a few minutes that corrects the fading around the edges, the dust & scratches, the levels and which picks out the faces just a bit, and stops there. I think everyone will like this version best, but let me know. I can always add more touchups or scale back some. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 13:48, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Addendum: @Adam Cuerden: I see what you're referring to on the girl's dress, however when I look closer up, the light area follows the surface of that particular piece of cloth perfectly. I think it's actually discoloration of the material. I could still fix it, but I'm at a point where I'm reluctant to do too much. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 14:46, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
