Rugby union lineout [edit]

A rugby union lineout, showing 5 stages

5 photos showing a line-out in the sport of rugby union.

  • A featured picture should:
  • Be a photograph, diagram, image or animation that exemplifies Wikipedia's very best work. It should represent what Wikipedia offers that is unique on the Internet. Haven't seen a photo like this on any other website
  • Be available under an acceptable free license (i.e. not fair use). I took the photos
  • Be useful, accurate, and pleasing to the eye. Yes, it accuratly shows stages.
  • Useful: Adds value to an article and helps complete readers' understanding of an article in ways other pictures in the article do not. Yes, shows how complex a line-out is in that article
  • Accurate: Supported by facts in the article or references cited on the image page. Yes
  • Pleasing to the eye: Taken or created in a manner which best illustrates the subject of the image. The picture should make a reader want to know more. I think a reader would be interested by this image
  • Be displayed with a descriptive, informative and complete caption. Have a look, click on the image
  • Be of a sufficiently high resolution to allow quality reproductions. (Currently, images under 1000 pixels are seldom supported, unless they are of historical significance.) I think it is big enough.

  • Oppose Not pleasing to the eye at all - entirely too busy, 5-in-1 Search4Lancer 02:48, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose Messy, even in full size. --Janke | Talk 10:49, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose Too fragmented. Maybe a picture of just stage 4 would be good, but it would have to be a more interesting line-out, say maybe one between two good teams. It would also have to be at a better angle- straight down the tunnel?--Mr. RX99 19:55, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose doesn't flow well. --Lewk_of_Serthic contrib talk 00:29, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose This doesn't seem to be a photo, rather it is a story; a very confusing story. --Philopedia 18:19, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose Good idea, confusing execution. Procrastinator-General 22:54, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
    • What layout would you suggest; would you like to see the full size individual photos? --HamedogTalk|@ 13:15, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose very confusing Leidiot 11:19, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose Confusing, and not exactly striking. Maybe one of them would be okay, but this juxtaposition just doesn't do it for me.Agent Aquamarine
