Howler Monkey [edit]

B&W version

This is a youg howler monkey in Costa Rica. I took the photo through a telescope thats why it has a black circle around it. its in the Howler Monkey article i think theres some feeling to this photo that makes you conect with this monkey and want to read about it.

  • Nominate and support. - Danielchaves 18:28, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose The image is too small, and does not show enough of the animal. It also has poor color and detail, and the telescope circle is distracting. ~MDD4696 19:32, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose Sorry, I appreciate the monkey is appealing, but this picture just doesn't have the other qualities we ask of FPs. Please have a look at the criteria ~ VeledanTalk 21:27, 5 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Strongly Oppose Strongly Oppose First of all the black frame caused by the telescope looks bad. The monkey is slightly off-centered. Alvinrune TALK 03:33, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose as per others.--Lewk_of_Serthic contrib talk 03:43, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Off-centered, overly bright background. Simply not featured picture quality. --Red Penguin 07:59, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Another version added. I've done the best I can in the circumstances, and the only way I can make it anywhere near the featured picture standard is to discard the colour information completely. I'm sorry, this is a decent photo of a howler monkey, and alright for the article, but it is a long way from Featured Picture. Symbol oppose vote.png OpposeVanderdeckenξφ 11:58, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Oppose A million miles away from FPC quality - Adrian Pingstone 17:06, 6
  • Comment I checked past featured pics and i see you´re right. Quality is just not enough. Danielchaves

  • I like the new version much better than the original one, but I still have to oppose. It doesn't show the subject properly. From this picture, I can't tell if the monkey has a tail or a red bottom. - Mgm|(talk) 09:34, 7 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose not even close. chowells 14:14, 8 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose The black is better but still not a very clear picture of the monkey. Sorry. sikander 16:04, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
