  • Sad Oppose Great picture but the resolution is very much below our standard. Plus it would benefit greatly from increased resolution. Does one exist out there? Mattximus (talk) 15:03, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Given how small and fast moving krill are, I think this is a pretty acceptable size. It would benefit from a scale, though. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.72.190.205 (talk) 18:31, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I beg to differ. This alt is from the same photo session (presumably), but with higher resolution.

    . Look at the details we are missing. And it shows that it's technically possible to have better resolution. The problem is that it's only the head. I believe there is a higher resolution image of this creature somewhere. But for now it's too low resolution for a featured image. Mattximus (talk) 00:12, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment Excellent image, unfortunately it is too low resolution. If the image were available in the resolution of the head image this would be a very easy choice. CFCF (talk) 13:31, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
