Hooded Plover (Thinornis rubricollis), Bruny Island, Tasmania
Reason
Picture has a "bleached" look-n-feel from overexposure leading to little contrast. Cropping gives off-balance feel to composition.

  • Keep. The exposure looks good to me--the detail in the head and eye would be lost if it were darker. There isn't much color in the background, which gives it colorless feel overall, but for me that just makes the distinctive red eye and beak stand out more. I didn't vote on this picture when it came up originally but I quite like it. Chick Bowen 02:46, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep. I might oppose if it were nominated today due to the problems mentioned, but they're not bad enough to delist it IMO. In general, relatively recent FPs should not be delisted unless a major oversight was made in the original nomination or if the EV disappears. -- King of ♠ 04:16, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
    Delist per Jee. The existence of another FP certainly reduces EV. -- King of ♠ 10:47, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Delist because the other featured picture File:Thinornis rubricollis - Orford.jpg seems far better. Jkadavoor (talk) 16:45, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Don't care I did do better later. I prefer not to do delist and replaces when nominating as it is tough to get a quorum. But it isn't over exposed. JJ Harrison (talk) 00:51, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
