Pulaski Skyway[edit]

Alternate version: larger, more aggressive sharpening

This beautiful picture is a very high quality and illustrates the Pulaski Skyway perfectly. I know it is in black and white, which slightly detracts for the image, butI think that the image has enough going for it that it could still be Featured.

  • Weak Support - could be any of a thousand bridges. (OT: At least you could have shown the entrance in Kearny used in the opening of the Sopranos, just north of where Western Electric used to be, by the Terminal Diner.) BellCurve 12:19, 1 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Neutral. There are some blown highlights and blur issues, but considering when this was taken it's not bad. --Tewy 21:48, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Can't see any reason why this is in b/w, and personally I do think that detracts a lot from the image in this case. B/w when used well can make exceptional images (an example is the card shuffling), however in this case it does nothing for the image --Fir0002 08:18, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose per User:Fir0002. Insufficient contrast and busy subject matter for black and white. Also, the full size image appears to have some kind of blur or compression artifacts. --S0uj1r0 10:36, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
    • Show me. Look at the histogram and point me to a lack of contrast. Explain to me how you're going to take a large-format image that's perfectly crisp everywhere under short exposure times (the cars are frozen), bellows movement to achieve critical focus on the bridge itself, not to mention haze. Regarding the alleged "compression artifacts", there is no color subsampling in a b/w image and the JPEG quality was set to above 0.9. --MarkSweep (call me collect) 21:51, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
