  • Support as nominator --Extra 999 (Contact me + contribs) 02:06, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Comment Weak support. I don't think it's clear why this image is considered to have good EV. Is the particular subject typical of Bahá'í Houses of Worship (it appears so from the article, but I'm not familiar with the subject), or is it particularly well known? While it's a pretty picture, the bushes either side of the building potentially hide extensions of the building (I doubt it, but it's a possibility). Nev1 (talk) 18:34, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
  • That would certainly indicate EV, but why wasn't that in the nominating statement? It would help if the vague assertion of "Good EV, quality picture" was expanded upon, perhaps with some evidence or at least so that it constituted a complete sentence. Nev1 (talk) 18:19, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Map of Chicago 1830[edit]

Original - The original plat that led to Chicago becoming a municipality and eventually a city.
Reason
The filing of this 1830 map of Chicago is said to mark the beginning of the municipality of Chicago, which would incorporate as a city later that decade. To this day the original 58 blocks of this city are regarded as such, with the most famous being Block 37. Wolf Point, Chicago is block 14.

    • I apologize, I accidentally put the reason in the caption and then filled the reason with my stock answer.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 05:43, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
      • It seems to be a reproduction from 1884 which altered the original from 1830 which could be this, although again a different version is shown here. --Elekhh (talk) 06:05, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
        • In 1830 when the area had a population of about 250, historians regard the August 4, 1830 filing of the plat as the official recognition of a municipality known as Chicago.[1] Chicago became an incorporated city in 1837. The 1884 map that you point to was just a later mapping of the city with a much larger area depicted that includes the orignal 58-blocks of this map.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 06:47, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
        • Yes, this is a reproduction taken from a book published in 1884. I'm not sure if the original still exists; the one in the Encyclopedia of Chicago is a certified copy dating from 1837.—Jeremy (talk) 15:22, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Comment I love and respect historic content, but this seems too vague, just a bunch of boxes with no description. --I'ḏOne 08:53, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
    • It is a standard plat. It shows city blocks and individual land parcels. What more could you want it to contain. The city did not exist at the time of the map. It had a population of only 250 people. This is the vision of the actual streets that eventually evolved.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 13:53, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

  • Oppose right now, maybe I'll change if I can be convinced. Sorry, there's too much wrong with this, from what I can tell. Firstly, it's not interesting, it looks like a picture from a seat at an assembly, there's nothing going on, no people doing anything, just the photographer's camera's-eye-view from behind many rows of rusted, makeshift seats. It looks like something should be happening, like someone took the time to arraign all those seats for an event but, nuthin'. Even if the chairs are permanently there I don't think this photo is very flattering at all with its boring sky and rusty, replaceable folding chairs. I think this would be a better lead image for the lawn article and the one to the right should be somewhere amongst the prose. --I'ḏOne 15:08, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

This is a high EV image. The quality is pretty good with even small print on the jersey being completely legible at full resolution. It could be sharper, but although we can get another photo of this guy, we can't get one for a Super Bowl champion that he was the defensive leader for.

Parts of the quality are good, like of his jersey, but, honestly I don't think the image has enough value or rarity for a support or is bad enough for an oppose and I think we could get a better image of him. I guess I could support edit 2. --I'ḏOne 05:45, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Conditional support It's a great picture, especially with the emblem, but with the Wikipedia way, we won't promote potentially copyrighted material. Personally, I think the picture is great, but with the Super Bowl emblem in the background, which, by the way, I think is owned by him, we can't offer a promote. (I can support without the emblem, but I really like it because I think it adds to the picture.) Sorry, but track down the photographer. Someone owns the copyright. Gut Monk (talk) 03:04, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

  • I disagree, an image of an article's subject, which this is, definitely has EV, but if J Milburn prefers the current image, then I hope it's ok if I just add it.
    Support both/either, pref. ALT because that one seems to show a mature of each gender whereas the original still looks like it's not fully aged. --I'ḏOne 00:35, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
    • So a hundred images of a Tufted Duck, all showing pretty much the same thing, all have EV? Right. Encyclopedic value is about how much an image adds to the article- when we already have a stronger image showing the same thing, a new image often adds nothing. Yes, if the other two didn't exist and this was the only image we had of the species, it would have EV. As it is, it doesn't. J Milburn (talk) 22:28, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose on the criteria currently in place. Its not the best image for illustrating the species, as it only shows the male. The other picture in the article showing both the male and female is better to illustrate the species. Canada Hky (talk) 14:40, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

  • Comment I actually think the light is well placed on the main facade and entry, and the cars are not too distracting (although the red one is a bit). It appears to potentially have high EV in William Wallace Kimball, although is unclear for how long he lived there and the info is unreferenced. It has also high EV in the USSF, however here the pole which covers the USSF plaque is disturbing. For the EV in the other two articles, I find the highrise which disturbs the building's silhouette a considerable drawback. I would tend to support if the EV in William Wallace Kimball is strenghtened, by adding more referenced info. --Elekhh (talk) 00:23, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

  • Comment Something about that picture just makes me think it needs OTRS, plus it's pretty small and the EV of the band in general along with WP:N is probably questionable... I'm tempted to tag it with {{no permission since}} imho. — raekyT 02:10, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
    • I don't understand why a work from the author need much more. I have added {{Personality rights}}, which I think it does need.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 03:42, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
      • What I mean is, it looks rather professional, and for professional photographers we usually like to have OTRS on file for their pictures, since at this point we're just assuming the uploader is the actual photographer, without an e-mail and ip's and other stuff to back that up. We really do get quite a few people who try to upload professional stuff and not actually own the copyright or pretend to be the photographer. — raekyT 03:56, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
        • It just strikes me as strange that someone like Kyle Cassidy uploading a rather mismatch sample of his work in VERY wide ranges of quality (tiny to big, bland to strange) many looking to be web quality. When he has blog and website where he systematically publishes his work online, easily accessible for someone to access and upload here... I think it would be darn right foolish of us to not have record that KyleCassidy is really him. I think an OTRS admin should e-mail to confirm that really is his account and record it. Just seems strange the account has been active since 2007 and as most recently as January of this year without anyone requesting actual identity to backup these pictures. — raekyT 04:16, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
          • I am glad to hear that this also strikes you as fine professional quality work. How about a conditional support saying "pending admin OTRS copyright confirmation".--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 12:56, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
            • I donno, I'm not enthused about the size, and I just don't have a good feeling about a band that has a myspace link on their homepage. Just doesn't scream notable to me. — raekyT 13:19, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
    • As far as size goes, I think this image is larger than its downsized use on WP, which means for the purpose for which its EV is being evaluated it has abundant size.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 03:43, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

        • Yep, I can confirm that the account is run on behalf of Cassidy, and he has authorised the release of the files uploaded. In other news, Cassidy said he will look into getting a higher resolution version of this shot uploaded. J Milburn (talk) 11:31, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
          • If thats the case then I'll probably support it!, Probably a good idea to get a OTRS ticket number and link to it on User:KyleCassidy stating that it is indeed him. That way in the future someone else as picky as me doesn't have another OTRS volunteer go through that again. ;-) — raekyT 15:03, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Soldiers and Sailors Monument (2nd nomination)[edit]

Edit2 (nominee, produced in hugin) - Soldiers and Sailors monument at Lafayette Square, Buffalo
Reason
This is the main image for Lafayette Square, Buffalo, a town square with a central American Civil War monument that was dedicated with an audience that included Grover Cleveland, the Governor of Pennsylvania and two Brigadier Generals. Cleveland had previously laid a cornerstone during the groundbreaking for the monument.
I previously nominated edit 1 below (see Wikipedia:Valued picture candidates/Soldiers and Sailors Monument). It failed without opposition. Now that I can use hugin, I am reediting myself and hoping for a better outcome with either my edit or the previous edit.

It'd be nice to be on the floor, with strobes in the catwalk and have the advantages that professional photographers have, but your bar might have the be lowered a bit as to what is realistic on a routine basis from your average person taking photos at a game. Its hard, especially an indoor sport. That being said - there are better examples than this - for illustrative purposes especially. I just don't see it on this one, the foreground is distracting, and the crop is too big. Canada Hky (talk) 19:38, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Sheffield from Meersbrook Park[edit]

A view of Sheffield as a panorama from Meersbrook Park.
Reason
Illustrates a part of Sheffield very well, from a view many people will not see. Also illustrates the geography and is used in several good articles. Although not the best quality picture ever, it portrays a typical area of Sheffield well, from an angle I myself have never seen. Sheffield in my opinion is featured article standards, but due to lack of review, did not pass. It is currently a good article nominee.

An interesting picture, it shows the seeds of a, to my knowledge, not very-well-known type of coconut, so, yes, what you see to the right are probably a type of purple coconut.

I did a slight 0.8°CW rotation (you might need to purge cash with CTRL+F5 to see it), but is impossible to completely straighten, due to barrel distortion, and loss of detail on the edges (both window on the right and hand at the bottom are important to retain).
