  • Support surprise surprise, another superb bird shot by JJ :) . --WingtipvorteX PTT 18:33, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose now that image is no longer in article. --WingtipvorteX PTT 14:09, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Support. A lovely photograph, and the sole photo in a featured article on the species. Unless JJ has a reason this one shouldn't be featured (concerns about ID, say) I'm happy with it. J Milburn (talk) 19:10, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Weak support Not my favorite framing, I feel like a crop was forced due to some (now unseen) reason. And extremely nitpicky, but the bit of shadow at the bottom left actually draws my eye out of the frame—wonder if this could be removed, it seems like a blemish. The bird itself is beautifully photographed, it's only the crop or framing I have an issue with. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 19:38, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose I don't like the crop here either. I assume it was done to try to comply with the so-called "rule of thirds". But, in my opinion, the rule of thirds is only appropriate when there is something interesting in the rest of the picture than just the main subject. In this image, the only thing in the rest of the image is an uninteresting branch and a nondescript background. Rreagan007 (talk) 22:04, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose Somebody has moved it around in the article without changing the captions. It isn't an adult flame robin, so EV is a bit low. JJ Harrison (talk) 02:33, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Figures. Changed the caption. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 07:04, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • In response to the comments, I actually love the framing. However, the fact this is a juvenile is exactly what I meant by "unless JJ has any reason...". J Milburn (talk) 14:49, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • I like the framing too, but since this is not in the article anymore (juveniles may still have EV) this nom is sunk. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:08, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I probably can't blame JJ, but perhaps due to the dark colour of the head, it is out of focus because it is hard to focus. Arctic Kangaroo () 13:44, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
