  • Oppose Obvious post processing - I wonder what filters though could generate the speckling in the background. Debivort 02:04, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose I was very excited by the nominator's description and the thumbnail, but was very disappointed when I looked at the full version. There is a large blown out highlight on the frog's side, and all of the blow out highlights on the moss are distracting. The blurring on the tree looks strange and artificial; it looks like much more than just a shallow depth of field. Yes, the size requirement is only 1000 pixels on any one side, but for an image that hits that lower limit, the full size version must be very sharp. The technical quality of this image isn't up to FP status, but I would certainly support you replacing the current infobox image with this one, as this image looks superb at 200 pixels.

  • Oppose - Basically, I agree with Enuja. It looked great at thumbnail size and very disappointing after that. Zakolantern 05:32, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
