  • Oppose - Composition issues: two cut-off people are quite distracting. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 07:59, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose — Another entertainer. Hohum. Sca (talk) 15:44, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose Focus issues. Disembodied head look from dim lighting. Distracting shadow.--Mark Miller (talk) 21:29, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose While cropping might fix the shadow and extraneous arms in the frame, it wouldn't help the focus or softness of the image, and the almost slack-jawed look of the subject's mouth hanging open is particularly unnerving. I'm not opposed to shots of people whose mouths are open, but this particular image catches her mouth in a bad configuration. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 09:43, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose per Crisco and suggest speedy close. Composition is weak, with the arms holding her and the shadow on the wall making it look like a KGB scene. Btw "I love her because she is awesome" is surely not demonstrating that it fits the FP criteria.--ELEKHHT 12:32, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
And I thought "awesome" was the highest accolade known to humankind ... no? Sca (talk) 15:06, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Yep, but has to refer to the photo, not the subject, and has to be objective rather than subjective. :) -ELEKHHT 12:52, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
I've heard it said that Ivan the Terrible (Ива́н Гро́зный​) should properly be known in English as Ivan the Awesome, i.e. inspiring fear, dread, respect, subservience, etc. Sca (talk) 15:36, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
