  • Support - high quality illustration with high EV. NW (Talk) 16:21, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Pretty, illustrates that "war sucks" quite well, so I have no moral objections. EV seems high enough, and I doubt that another version of this of higher quality exists.   Nezzadar    16:26, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

  • Support per high EV, and quality (except the texts which look soft)--Caspian blue 01:52, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
    Oppose the Edit 1 because the overprocessed image erases many subtle neural tones.--Caspian blue 17:47, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
  • Support, very nice. J Milburn (talk) 15:20, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
  • Edit 1 uploaded, Support either. This is one of those cases where there are multiple possibilites. Shoemaker's Holiday Over 214 FCs served 17:23, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose Edit It seems like the colors in the edit are not an accurate representation of what they should be. The uniforms are brighter at the cost of the color of the background. This detracts from the overall image in my opinion. In fact, it looks like the top was bleached, in an are where it would seem unreasonable to be so devoid of color.   Nezzadar    05:43, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
