Photographers crowd around a starlette at the Cannes Film Festival.

Self-nom. I expect to be charged of objectifying women for this one, but there's to much dead things on that page yet ;-). Ericd 19:54, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose. It's a photograph of photographers which I think is silly. It's a no, no from me. • Thorpe •
Comment. This picture also illustrates Photojournalism where the photographers are the subject. -- Solipsist 19:17, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. I love it. It seems to tell so much. Also, something different than usual FP candidates. Junes 16:45, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. I spotted this on Ericd's images page a couple of weeks ago. I'm impressed that we have professional(?) photographers contributing images of this quality. I particularly like the way the starlet is sunlit, whilst the photogaphers are in shadow. (And curiously the photographers appear to have dated more than the starlet.) -- Solipsist 18:06, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • Amateur. I was in high school when I shot this one. That's beginners luck. Ericd 22:52, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. I umed and ahed but then decided it was very interesting considering when it was taken. Love the fashions on the photographers. --Silversmith Hewwo 18:14, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. I also found this photo a few weeks ago and I love it, it's somehow very different. I like how it captures the clothing fashion of the time. Teklund 18:19, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Lingerie-clad woman with oogling men -- do we not have enough of this in the media? Need it be a FP too? Chicago god 18:50, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Notice how no one is actually looking at the woman? They're all studying their cameras, and the photo is of them, not her. How profoundly illustrative. And also great photography. - Matthew Cieplak (talk) (edits) 01:00, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Support - curiously appealing. They're all so stuck in their roles. Denni 02:45, 2005 Jun 16 (UTC)
  • Support - fine photography and fine psychology. Kosebamse 05:25, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Support - psychologically very interesting, adds to the article -- Chris 73 Talk 14:03, Jun 16, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. The subject matter is a different beast to many of the other nominations here, and the profusion of action is nice. Enochlau 07:36, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Support -- good image. - Longhair | Talk 01:53, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Support -- illustrative, striking and different. - Haukurth 20:03, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)
