  • Support – good enough for an aerial photo. Would also support a more centered version. Bammesk (talk) 16:50, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Support. Interesting, detailed, and the WHS gives it high EV. It doesn't look very far off-center to me; I think the appearance of skewness is because it's not aligned with the background buildings, but that's something inherent to the subject rather than a flaw in the photograph. —David Eppstein (talk) 02:16, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

The Goldfinch[edit]

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 6 Feb 2020 at 11:54:02 (UTC)

OriginalTromp-l'oeil of a goldfinch created by Carel Fabritius in 1654 shortly before he was tragically blown to bits. Lost for many years, it was recently brought to wider attention by being a plot device in Donna Tartt's Pulitzer winner.
Reason
Meets all the criteria and the article on the painting will probably be FA shortly, so it would be nice to make a set. Have a read of the article, it's fascinating stuff.

  • Oppose - Only partly shown, and not in natural condition (stained with eosine color). Besides, smaller than accepted minimum for FPC. --Janke | Talk 13:40, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean about the size, but the original file is 1,200 × 900 pixels. The worm is only partly shown because there may be 300 or more body segments; it is equivalent to a human portrait showing a head and shoulders. Staining is a normal microscopic technique. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 19:29, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
I know all that. Still, I would like to see a photo showing the natural state. Also, to elucidate re. size: The FPC criteria (link also on top of this page) state, among other requirements: "Still images should be a minimum of 1500 pixels in width and height-" --Janke | Talk 20:41, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose, based on size. If dying and a focus on the head are important for ID purposes, I'm not going to oppose on those grounds. I'd be open to an argument that the small size is forgivable given the small subject, but I think this falls below the bar expected for this sort of image; compare it to File:Lagis koreni (with and without tube).jpg and File:Nototropis falcatus.jpg, for example. However, it's a really striking image that we're lucky to have. Josh Milburn (talk) 17:00, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose per others re size. Geoffroi 01:58, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

  • Support I think the black background and flashed lighting is acceptable here - a cursory google suggests that this snake is nocturnal and the photo also seems to suggest this. P.S. It can be much easier to locate this sort of thing at night - probably it was found with eye shine and a headtorch or similar. JJ Harrison (talk) 04:38, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
