    • Charlesjsharp, I think he is looking at the camera. I think he has a slight esotropia. (If you cover one eye at a time with your finger you will notice both eyes are separately looking at you but they point in slightly different directions.) His other portrait is worse (where he is looking completely in a different direction) also shows that he has esotropia. Surprising for an astronaut! For en.wiki, this photo is the best option for the lead image. He is now 76 years old and this photo was taken when he was 50. I think this photo is the best representation we have of the subject. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 18:02, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment. This could look good printed very large, in the vein of Edward Burtynsky. That way you could see the vehicles more clearly and get a better sense of scale.

CT scan of a pregnancyEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 10 Aug 2019 at 13:33:41 (UTC)

 
OriginalCT scan with volume rendering of a woman who was pregnant at 37 weeks.
Reason
*The acquisition of an image like this depends on a series of unlikely events. First, the pregnancy was relatively late, making the baby's anatomy more clear. Second, the woman had to be in an accident serious enough to warrant a CT without radiation dose reduction (which would be of much lower quality, and in this case it was a high speed traffic accident). At the same time, the woman did not have any visible physical damage, thereby allowing for an image of normal anatomy (and getting her written consent for its online publication).
  • Several processing steps in order to make a rotating gif image from CT data. However, I do not know how to remove the "FLP" and cube at the bottom.
  • Although there's a larger version, that one is too big to be animated in the wiki.

  • Comment – I added a CSS image crop as a suggestion. The image has EV. Per user:Cart I looked at the flickr examples here. These two photographers [1], [2] list lens settings very similar to the nom image. The foreground bokeh's abrupt transition to the in-focus region is a common thing [3], [4], [5], [6]. These two photos [7], [8] are very interesting: same lens setting but dissimilar bokeh because of foreground distance or elevation. Here is the lens wide open: [9]. Bammesk (talk) 14:25, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
    • Just as an addendum. There is a technique aspect to this - the photo is taken prone with the camera very close to the ground. This means that the background is relatively distant and hence out of focus. JJ Harrison (talk) 09:06, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
      • Noted, it makes more sense now. The heavy blur of the foreground bokeh is distracting. Such blur is common in backgrounds (expected), but not usually seen in foregrounds. Also, the abrupt transition between it and the in-focus region amplifies the effect, as if the ground is elevated in the near field and obstructing the view, rather than flat. Weak support original, some cropping of the foreground would be an improvement IMO. Bammesk (talk) 16:00, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

The Guilty MotherEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 14 Aug 2019 at 05:15:20 (UTC)

 
Original – Bégéarss from The Guilty Mother
Reason
For the oddly least-well-known of the Figaro plays, there's still a lot to like. Bégéarss, an Irishman (I'm pretty sure his name is a terrible pun, think something like "Begorrah!"), is the character it, in a way, turns around, his schemes pushing everything forwards. It's a very good illustration. I've cropped it to centre the text. I could see cropping the note in the bottom right closer to, to centre the figure more. Crop is a compromise between image and text centering.

Pauline Adams reduxEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 20 Aug 2019 at 21:53:33 (UTC)

 
OriginalPauline Adams, suffragette, in her prison garb from her arrest for attempting to "flaunt their banners" in front of Woodrow Wilson's reviewing stand before a Selective Service parade on September 4, 1917." She later appealed, under the grounds her rights were "flagrantly disregarded in the trial court and that they were not accorded a fair and impartial trial" - and won.
Reason
Fixed the top of the cup after the criticism in the last nomination of the top of the cup being cut off. Enough of the edge still exists that, with perspective, it's easy to reconstruct the top edge.

  • Support either. Eye-catching, high-quality, and encyclopedic. I'm curious about something: the caption explains the red feathers in her hair (a mark of royalty) but not the thing she's carrying, which (from its appearance in the rest of the set) appears to be some kind of ceremonial weapon, possibly a mace. Would it be possible to track down an explanation and add it to the caption? —David Eppstein (talk) 16:31, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Support in principle – as an intriguing and engaging human image (Could be cropped a bit on both sides.) However, the person to the subject's left (right side of frame) really must be identified also. – Sca (talk) 22:42, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
    • There's a crop at File:Princess Sikhanyiso Dlamini-001.jpg but I think it's too tight and cuts off the other princess's face. But I think cropping from the left side only, down to around a 5x4 aspect ratio, could help focus attention on the subject better. —David Eppstein (talk) 23:19, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Very tight crop
(From French Wiki)


FYI, several other Wikis use a very tightly cropped version with their Sikhanyiso Dlamini articles. It excludes all but the other person's ear, which obviates the ID issue, although aesthetically it's less interesting. →
Sca (talk) 16:04, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
We could just say "another member of the royal family" in the caption. I think that part is clear enough. Searching Getty Images for Temaswati finds images of her in similar costume from 2004, 2005, and 2007, but unfortunately not 2006, and the 2005 image shows several other young women also wearing the red feathers, so I think we can't just assume that this is Temaswati. There is also another photo from 2006, but without names; she is third in the line after the leader of the dance and then Sikhanyiso, suggesting that she probably is indeed Temaswati, but again there are quite a few others with red feathers. —David Eppstein (talk) 17:52, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Please excuse me for saying so, but from a journalistic point of view, saying "another member of" would be laughably tantamount to saying "and someone else, whose name we failed to get." – Sca (talk) 22:17, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

─────────────────────────It is clear that we do not have documentation for the name. Why do you think it is inappropriate or laughable to say so? Do you think we should try to cover it up or pretend to knowledge that we don't have? Do you think we also need the name of the blurred woman in the left margin or the blurred man on the right? Does our lack of knowledge of these things somehow turn this into a bad photo of Sikhanyiso Dlamini, or of the reed dance? —David Eppstein (talk) 22:48, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

People shown in FPs should be identified. Otherwise readers will be left asking, "Who's this?" - Sca (talk) 01:54, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment – There is no need for the other person's name. The composition centers on the princess, the other person is incidental to the composition, especially with the blade in front of her face. The article, the EV and the photo all center on the princess. The Alt 1 crop is too tight, the origonal is better, it shows the princess in a group setting, and doesn't cut off her pole awkwardly on the left. Bammesk (talk) 03:54, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment: Yes, marking queen bees is standard practice in beekeeping, at least over here in Germany. I happen to know a club of beekeepers and they have shown me queen bees they had purchased from breeders and which are always marked. The chosen form of marking for each group of species is nicely presented in the article Animal identification enlisted above. Someone could surely provide an second image with an unmarked queen bee, but, however, this image displaying a marked queen bee accompanied by a throng of worker bees AND all in nigh-perfect focus well illustrates the central theme "marked queen bee" and is certainly worthy of featured picture status. Maybe the title should be extended accordingly.

  • Comment Oops, many thanks for this crucial hint! I admit I had overlooked this statement "min. 7 days wait after adding to the article before nominating" on my highly exciting journey through the ways and wends of Wikipedia's numerous regulation pages, coming as I am from just over a year's membership at Wiki commons with its slightly different set of nomination proceedings. Yes, of course, I am absolutely willing to comply and thus agree to wait the required 7 days' latency period (i.e. from 15 August till 23 August 2019) before proceeding, and I'll surely wait for the required 7 days should I ever nominate another image.

  • Comment – I have tried to look at this in 3D, but no luck! Am I missing something, is there a technique, glasses, etc? Bammesk (talk) 00:51, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
    • For some people, it's simply impossible. You can at least try by displaying the pair in a smaller size (say, 100 mm or so), then concentrate your focus on your own nose tip, and slowly let your eye muscles relax. At some point the images (may hopefully) coalesce, and you see the 3-D image. This one is really good, BTW. --Janke | Talk 07:06, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
    • As Janke correctly states, cross-eyed viewing is impossible for some people (including my wife and others I have tested in this request, check Stereoscopy#Visual_requirements), but it is otherwise very handy for unaided viewing straight from the screen, as no viewing apparatus is required. Works astoundingly well (at least for me) even if the stereo pair is displayed at full screen size, thus providing a level of detail not possible with standard stereo viewers due to their limited image size. See article Stereoscopy#Freeviewing, which explains the two possible arrangements for stereo viewing.
      For all others I have supplied a version arrranged for parallel viewing (click on the above image and scroll to "Other versions"), which can be viewed under a stereoscope / stereoscopic viewer after having been resized to a range between 60x60 mm and 100x100 mm each image. And, for any other purpose, e.g. stereo viewing of individual sections of a stereo image, I have also supplied the two single images which compose the stereo pairs. Just enlarge these, each within its own individual window, say to 50%, then shift both images until the detail you are interested in is centered in each window. Arrange the two windows (R-L or L-R) as required for your chosen viewing method and now enjoy an abundancy of details within this section in full stereo that even a full screen display simply cannot render. This is only possible if the images, as here, are provided with a relatively high resolution.
      Caveat: I know that this is, of course, not encyclopaedic information, but it may be of value for others who have difficulties viewing stereo images or for those who intend to enhance their knowledge about methods of viewing images. I have been taking stereo images for quite a number of years and would designate myself as an experienced photography amateur, now retired, with a background of astrophysics. Would it help if I extended the section Freeviewing by a concise version of "What must I do? I simply can't see any stereo effect." or similar. Who would I as a newbie have to contact ahead before adding any unwelcome text and thus possibly causing an uproar amongst a multitude of seasoned editors? My wiki experience to date is limited to some 50 image uploads to Wiki commons and, well, to this particular image as my first and singular addition to wikipedia. -- Franz van Duns (talk) 13:30, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
      See your talk page, I commented there. --Janke | Talk 17:08, 20 August 2019 (UTC) - Thanks!
  • Do you have an image with only a single flower in it? I'm thinking you can substitute the infobox image in Passiflora caerulea with such an image. Anyway, one flower in the pair has the same physical resolution and better DOF than that image. The seven day waiting period is a good idea to sit out, this is one of those topics that has a high turnover of images. If it sticks, then support. But suspend for a week first. MER-C 14:18, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
    • @MER-C: Many thanks for your suggestion. I propose the following image, taken in June 2019: File:Passiflora-caerulea 2019-06-23 (DSC2447-1).jpg. In the past two months I have taken quite a number of Passiflora images at different angles and sizes, some of which I intend to upload soon; some are side views, some taken from underneath, and some focussed on the centre features. The Passiflora vine that produced these images is still flowering and I am continuously taking images as long as this lasts. Are you asking me to replace the existing image in Passiflora caerulea without consulting anyone ahead? OK, I have read Janke's comment on my talk page regarding addition of new content to wikipedia, and all my contributions to Wiki commons are, of course, new content, but do the same rules also apply to replacement of existing content? I emphasize that I have great respect for all those who have agreeably contributed to the Wiki universe over many years and do not want to create unnecessary antagonisms by disrespectfully ignoring any of the unwritten rules that govern which content may be replaced and which must remain. This said I deduce that a tentative entry on the corresponding "talk page" would be the correct entrée.

  • Comment on my behalf: with the clock ticking relentlessly and only just over 50 hours to go, this one last ploy on my own behalf.
    This stereo image of two flowers was explicitly entered into as a Featured picture candidate for Photographic techniques, terms, and equipment, not of the individual flower I replaced on the page Passiflora caerulea, even though the depicted object certainly has its non-technical charms. It isn't perfect, no picture truely is, but the following technical considerations do give support to my entry: this image is an example of a photographic technique rarely practiced nowadays, it reproduces all colours without undue exaggeration, and it displays a tremendous amount of detail from one edge to the other, even if fully viewed at a resolution only few contemporary camera sensors can provide. Other versions supplied are a parallel-view stereo version for use with a stereoscope and also the two individual images. IMHO images of this kind enrich the technical expertise and scope of wikipedia and thus qualify for Featured picture status. Now it is up to you to comment and/or vote ... -- Franz van Duns (talk) 13:42, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

    • It absolutely works. Personally, I can merge cross-eyed images of up to 300 mm width at normal monitor viewing distance, but that really strains the eye muscles - and I look like Ben Turpin. This one, displayed about 150 mm wide on my setup is a cinch. YMMV... ;-) --Janke | Talk 18:10, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Reason
While aspects of it are problematic, I'm a fan of history in the raw, and not trying to hide the problematic aspects of otherwise good movements. This poster is in Ableism for a reason. But it's also a fine example of a notable suffragette and artist's work, and, while we have images of suffragettes, we have very little of their propaganda, which makes it rather valuable.

There's a significant literature in women's history and disability history focusing on how eugenic feminism informed the suffrage movements of North America and the UK (and I assume others).

  • Comment According to the article Sunbeam, of which Crepuscular rays is a subsection, the depicted rays are not crepuscular rays (i.e. when the sun is below the horizon), but sunbeams (when the sun is at some point in the sky, shining through openings in clouds or between other objects). I am no expert for sunrays of any kind, and I give great trust in wikipedia's content, which accurately conforms with the statements in the following article britannica.com: crepuscular-ray. The current entanglement of usage is also prominent by this image being (a) titled "Sunbeams over Lake Hawea, New Zealand" in the Sunbeam article and (b) "Sunlight shining through clouds, giving rise to crepuscular rays" in the Sunlight article.
    I really like this image as it nicely combines sunbeams and clouds of mist rising from the sea, and which, by the way, gains yet more at full resolution, and I thus would vote for full support (were I entitled - still 41 wikipedia edits to go ...).
    But, and this is important, all wikipedia contributions should be as accurate as possible, which may mean rewriting incorrect captions. All taken I pledge for a new scope in the manner of Featured picture for sunbeams instead of (incorrectly attributed) crepuscular rays. -- Franz van Duns (talk) 13:29, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment – Fulsomely toned target article deficient in documentation. – Sca (talk) 13:19, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment Even though the the lower quarter of the image (mainly grass, but also a plaque at bottom right) is rather soft, a technical shortcoming which also applies to the tips of the windmill vanes, this image nevertheless is of extraordinary encyclopaedic value. According to the corresponding article it may be the very first windmill of its kind, and if this is the best image, then IMHO let it be the Featured picture for its kind. Caveat: Due to a lack of Wikipedia edits (currently 34), I am not entitled to vote, but I'm plodding on towards the 100 edits margin. -- Franz van Duns (talk) 12:28, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment – I would support if some of the citation needed tags are addressed in the article. Bammesk (talk) 03:27, 29 August 2019 (UTC) . . . I added some external links. Bammesk (talk) 15:34, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment – I am leaning to oppose. The article is weak, just one line. Also there is a nice set of 4 images in the article, albeit not alive. Bammesk (talk) 03:04, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
