Original – The Ruffe is a freshwater fish found in Europe. It has also been introduced to North America.
Understated, but still an excellent picture. Technically very strong, especially for an underwater photograph. This, I believe, would only be our second freshwater fish; the image is far stronger than the other, which was promoted over six years ago.

  • Comment Looks very good at full size, but not as much so when smaller (background to fish common color). Wish we had a good similar picture of a trout or the like, but I could not find one.TCO (Reviews needed) 02:24, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment. The image page says this isn't used in any articles, but it is in the ruffe article. Having said which it, it only went in there on Jan 5 which isn't our 'rule of thumb' seven days. FWIW it was added with this edit, where the file name used is File:Kiisk.jpg. But when you click the image, this one loads. This is weird. --jjron (talk) 08:26, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
OK, seems someone renamed it on Commons and File:Kiisk.jpg is now a redirect over there; don't think I've seen a file redirect like that before. I've changed the file use in the article. I guess this is why we wait a week. --jjron (talk) 08:29, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
The image was moved. J Milburn (talk) 10:14, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
As I said. The problem was the redirect didn't show on the WP image page though, as it was happening on Commons. Interesting. Anyway, I've fixed it. --jjron (talk) 12:22, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Support Must be seen at full size to appreciate how high quality it is. Clegs (talk) 05:59, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Support per Clegs. Papa Lima Whiskey 2 (talk) 15:41, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment Isn't this a bit underexposed as is? JJ Harrison (talk) 21:44, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Support Looks fine to me, although admittedly better at full resolution. Crisco 1492 (talk) 03:05, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Support I'd still like to see a brightened up edit though I think. JJ Harrison (talk) 00:19, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Weak Support Excellent picture, but the caption needs some improvement. Dusty777 (talk) 15:10, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
