  • Support as nominator --Muhammad(talk) 09:32, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support-- I support 'A Dhow in the Indian Ocean' because the subject is well centered,focused and the photography technique clearly enligths a traditional fact not featured until now. (Telemaque_Myson) 14:00, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support original. Aaadddaaammm (talk) 17:44, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support alt1 per nom. Alt1 nicely illustrates the distinctive form of the sail, whereas the sail in the original looks (superficially) like other sailing vessels. Also, the shoreline in the original passes almost right through the boat, which I find kind of distracting, but alt1 does not have this issue. Spikebrennan (talk) 18:59, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Neutral. Although I appreciate the EV of the 1st alt from the standpoint of the sail, I find the image too dark and the crew isn't as featured as the original... which, as pointed out above, masks the distinctiveness of the sail. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 22:40, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Question Since both these images appear in the article and both have EV of different issues can we have them as a set nomination instead? --Muhammad(talk) 08:53, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Original JJ Harrison (talk) 02:36, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Original the second has a bad perspective and the canvas their is unrealistically bias.-- ♫Greatorangepumpkin♫ T 10:40, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose. Lighting and composition are somewhat blah. The sky especially seems uncooperative and cantankerous. Good EV though! Kaldari (talk) 21:50, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment. Why these images rather than File:Inhambane-dhow.JPG? File:Inhambane-dhow.JPG seems like a much more aesthetic photo and is also good quality. Kaldari (talk) 21:53, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
    • That is cut off at the top edge of the image. Purpy Pupple (talk) 02:16, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
