  • Comment - This is a beautiful restoration. I have one comment though. To my eye, it looks a little bit on the dark side. Obviously the original is washed out and needs significant contrast enhancement. However, the Wright brothers in your version look almost entirely black. Compare against the original and the previous restoration. Obviously, it's a subjective opinion, but I'd like to see a slightly lighter version. Kaldari (talk) 15:08, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

      • That looks better. I'll support it. BTW, I noticed that the filesize doubled with that edit. Was that intentional? Kaldari (talk) 17:58, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
