Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb[edit]

Original - A standard household integrated compact fluorescent light bulb. This format of bulb is considerably more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs. The popularity of the compact fluorescent bulb has risen tremendously in recent years for this reason.
Reason
This is a striking black and white image of a compact fluorescent bulb. It is detailed and of high resolution. There was recently a similar photo on FPC that was not accepted primarily on the grounds it was of too low resolution. This image is well above the 1000px limit.

  • Oppose Ditto here... Black and white isn't great to start off with but it also makes for an UNcyclopeadic picture because CFL glow with a slightly warm or cool white. Plus I'd like to see an image that has some hint of the base(always assume that the reader has never seen an object). Victorrocha (talk) 22:57, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment. The picture has been removed from the CFL article and replaced with the other FPC, which is IMO more EV because it's a natural color. Just letting you know, if you want to talk to the other editor and work out an agreement. Intothewoods29 (talk) 00:53, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Nomination withdrawn since its not in an article anymore, it can't be an FPC.(Giligone (talk) 03:09, 18 September 2008 (UTC))
