L'Enfant et les sortilèges reduxEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 1 Jun 2019 at 07:46:02 (UTC)

Reason
They're two of very few - possibly the only - free images for this work, and are rather good ones. Focus more on the sets than the scenes, but hint at most of the objects that come to life, save the animals in the garden. This was nominated once before, but fell into one of those weeks no-one was around. It passed on Commons by Rule of the 5th day, though, and, if anything, I'd have thought Commons would judge this much more harshly.

Jacinda Ardern after the Christchurch mosque shootingsEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 10 Apr 2019 at 16:28:48 (UTC)

Reason
Huge encyclopedic value. The extent of the photo's significance to the events has even been written about in e.g. The Guardian and The Sydney Morning Herald. Seems like a good example of EV outweighing some elements on the technical side that would typically prevent an image from being promoted. See also the Signpost.

  • Conditional support provided that the OTRS permission is verified. Photo has become notable in its own right. MER-C 17:40, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Oppose Very poor image of an important event. There are dozens of better ones around. Charlesjsharp (talk) 18:00, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Support. This is a case of the picture of itself being an item of interest - and this is partially because of the technical imperfections. The nominator's claim of high EV holds up. --LukeSurl t c 08:06, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment Oppose – This depicts an emotionally charged recent event, and the image captures that. However, I wonder how much the original image was manipulated for effect – the hands for instance. Color? Saturation? In other words, is this a picture of how things really were? – Sca (talk) 15:11, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
PS: Keep in mind, Ms. Adern is a currently sitting politician. – Sca (talk) 15:13, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
I certainly hear your concern, but I would argue (as others have) that the EV of the image outweighs those technical concerns. However, if you still have outstanding issues, what solution would you propose? Cwilson97 (talk) 16:14, 1 April 2019
From the Guardian and Sydney Morning Herald stories above we have a pretty detailed account of how the image was taken. "The photo, which first appeared on a city council Twitter feed, appeared as taken with barely any touch-ups or editing." —Giantflightlessbirds (talk) 20:11, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
So you are opposing because of ... a feeling of wondering if something is manipulated? The hands in particular? What evidence do you have for this (and/or that the accounts in the publications are lying/misleading)? Are you saying the hands are copied in? Or just that the saturation was changed (as it has been for many or even most FPs, to some degree). Oppose because you think the technical specs are more important than the broad press coverage this has received reporting on the significance of the photo to the events, or because they're wrong, but not because of some hunch of bad faith on the part of the photographer or some allusion to [over-?]post-processing. There are plenty of valid reasons to oppose this one -- it's the quality is not typical of FPs, after all -- but this one I don't get. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 21:18, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose, the picture does not really describe either of the main topics, but is tangentially related to both, so I do not see strong EV for this artistic photograph. Mattximus (talk) 20:36, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Not sure how the photo of Jacinda Ardern in one of her most important public appearances is only tangentially related to Jacinda Ardern. And the feeling here in NZ is that photo is absolutely an important part of the mosque shootings aftermath. —Giantflightlessbirds (talk) 20:42, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Through a window blurred with reflections? Mattximus (talk) 00:58, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes. What does the technical quality have to do with whether it's an important photo or not? Have you read the linked articles about the photo? —Giantflightlessbirds (talk) 01:25, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Support I don't get it, but the evidence convinces me this image is iconic of the event. I suspect, if it doesn't pass, coming back in a month with evidence of its enduring importance will make it pass. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.5% of all FPs 01:09, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Support – there are sufficient sources on the photo itself that it would be notable even in the absence of the surrounding context, which I think suggests sufficient EV; it's great to have a notable news photo available to Wikipedia straight after the event. TSP (talk) 11:05, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Support per nom --Tagishsimon (talk) 22:34, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
  • What about the OTRS permission? Do you have the ticket number? Regards, Yann (talk) 21:04, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Weak support, but could we perhaps hold off promoting until permission is confirmed with OTRS? I am definitely excited that we have an image that has been so widely commented upon, but I think the EV could be better grounded if one or both of the articles discussed the photograph, even if it's only a line or two - hence the "weak". Josh Milburn (talk) 13:46, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
    • I'd DEFINITELY support suspending this until OTRS clears, but only after the voting period is over. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.5% of all FPs 16:57, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
      • Agree, Conditional support pending OTRS permission, I added some details to the image caption in her article. Bammesk (talk) 19:51, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
  • I'll suspend this nomination, for a maximum of two months, until OTRS permission is confirmed. Armbrust The Homunculus 20:08, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
  • @Giantflightlessbirds: Do you have any additional information about the OTRS status? If you were involved in the email to permissions, perhaps you've seen the ticket# that we can get someone to check on? — Rhododendrites talk \\ 14:13, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
For the record, OTRS seems really backlogged. If no problems have arisen in the two months, I'm happy to promote this, instead of junking the FP status. I think it has enough supports for that to happen? Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.5% of all FPs 22:39, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
There's no reason why we shouldn't wait the backlog out. That said, I posted an inquiry on the Commons OTRS noticeboard. MER-C 16:15, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
"maximum of two months" Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.5% of all FPs 02:35, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Adam Cuerden I can leave this in the suspended section longer, but currently without the conditional supports this isn't succeeding. (5,5 support and 3 opposes = 64%). Armbrust The Homunculus 09:53, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
Why is this picture seriously considered for promotion when half of her face is covered by weird lens glare. This photo has meh EV at best, and is intended for "artistic" purpose. I have a hard time believing that an editor with enough interest could not get permission for something like this that is way more visual without appealing to "artistic" artifices. 71.197.186.255 (talk) 06:32, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Alva BelmontEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 7 Jun 2019 at 02:03:00 (UTC)

 
OriginalAlva Belmont in 1922
Reason
Notable sufragette, one of the founders of the Metropolitan Opera, playwright, divorcée in an era when that was shocking - Alva Belmont was a powerhouse of her time. And this is by far the best image I've found for her. Now, mind, it's from after she was a bit older, but given she never stopped being active (and was doing a LOT in 1922), that's not a huge deal. It does open us up to having a second FP, perhaps. I chose this one as it focused on her face more than some of the others.
A couple notes:
  • I didn't bother waiting a week for the image to stabilise because the article was last edited two months ago. The 100th anniversary of Women's Suffrage in the U.S. is next year, though, so getting the suffragette articles ready is a good idea.
  • There is a bright patch on the bridge of her nose. It also appears in File:Mrs_ohp_belmont_5-20-22.tif - which was taken around the same time, but which clearly has a different background and pose, so I believe the lighter bit to be genuine.

Pauline AdamsEdit

OriginalPauline Adams in the prison garb she wore after being sentenced, largely to solitary confinement, for protesting the president.
Reason
The lead up to the USA's hundredth anniversary of women's suffrage continues with Pauline Adams. How about a suffragette who was arrested for protesting, got sentenced to 60 days - then appealed and won. And who, when suffrage passed, decided to qualify as a lawyer. And did? Image is quite nice for the time, and, if you compare the before with the after I'm pretty sure you'll be impressed. Think the shadow on the left is natural, so I've left it in, but reduced it a smidgen. Would have preferred if the cup wasn't cut off, but... not much I can do there without being certain of the cup's shape. Easy to think you know, then discover that you don't.

  • I'm not sure if the head is distinctive enough to be significant in its own right here. The image is in the description section, but the only description of the head is that there is a "large head and bill. It has [...] an orange or pink bill with a white or brown nail (hard horny material at tip of upper mandible)" This may be one of those images that is rightfully an FP on Commons, but which doesn't add enough here, but it is an excellent image, so. .. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.6% of all FPs 15:36, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
    • Thinking about it, I think the problem is A. the description doesn't describe other parts of the head, like the eyes, and B. the caption doesn't emphasise the points to note. I think this may be fixable. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.6% of all FPs 16:12, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose agree with above, I don't see the EV of the head specifically, the current lead image is far more informative. Mattximus (talk) 21:43, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Question Should I oppose this because the background is very blurry and therefore over-processed? JJ Harrison (talk) 22:53, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
    • No. The background blur is the natural consequence of using a long lens on a DSLR, rather than anything that happened in postprocessing. With a 400mm lens, even f/10 won't make the background sharp. —David Eppstein (talk) 19:18, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Original – Young Adult Fiction writer Nic Stone
Reason
A really nice image of a notable recently-launched author. One of the best from Rhododendrites's BookExpo photography of the last couple days. I was worried because of a couple distracting elements in the original photo, but they cropped right out with a really nice photo left behind.

WP:FP?: The same reason we promote any FP because it [a]dds significant encyclopedic value to an article and helps readers to understand an article. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 13:18, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Sure – but how does a photo that's been extant for 74 years, one that's been displayed in the target article End of World War II in Europe for at least eight years (probably longer), and one that was added to the sidebar article Victory in Europe Day (by me) three years ago, now suddenly add significant EV? – Sca (talk) 16:22, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
I don't understand where you got "newness" criterion? That is not based on any policy for how we choose FP. The photo has always added significant EV and should have always been featured. It is among the best content on Wikipedia--- Coffeeandcrumbs 17:30, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Adds is a present-tense verb, connoting current action. A photo with the history of WP use outlined above isn't "adding" anything to Wiki now. – Sca (talk) 13:49, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
You are misunderstanding the meaning of Adds. But well ok. The existence of such a criterion is news to me. If this project expects new photos or photos newly added to an article, it should or would be stated in WP:FP?. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 16:13, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
Sca's argument makes no sense and is definitely not Ok, it's like saying a hospital cannot benefit society today because the hospital was established 20 years ago. Bammesk (talk) 12:30, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

───────────────────────── No it's not like that. Suppose the hypothetical hospital still had exactly the same operating room and equipment as it had when it opened. Would it make sense to argue that said operating room suddenly adds great benefit to society? The Keitel photo's EV began when it was added to the articles. (And its weighty historical value aside, it's a poorly framed composition that can't be fixed.)Sca (talk) 13:43, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Yes it is like that, because you wrote: "how does a photo (…) one that's been displayed in the target article (…) for at least eight years (…) now suddenly add significant EV? (…) A photo with the history of WP use outlined above isn't 'adding' anything to Wiki now." By the way, FP criteria doesn't say "suddenly adds". About "suppose": no there is no reason to suppose, the argument isn't about health care quality and operating rooms. If you want to elaborate, do it on your original argument. Bammesk (talk) 15:32, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose This is a very historically significant image, but it's just not a good photo.

  • "Promotional"? I went to a convention as a volunteer specifically to take pictures for Wikipedia. Does that context ruin the value of the photo because it's a "commercial event"? She has an article and passes our notability criteria. There's no requirement that the article a picture is in be at a particular state. You can always WP:SOFIXIT, of course. What sort of picture would add "EV regarding the subject's career"? This is an author and illustrator at an event for authors and illustrators, signing a book she authored and illustrated.

Putting aside, for a moment, your bizarre accusation of bad faith... I didn't ask for what photo you think adds EV for a random subject. That's an athlete. There's an obvious context for an athlete: at an athletic event. What sort of picture would add EV for this subject? The equivalent of an athlete with a tennis racket smiling off to a fan at a sporting event -- if it is not an author with a book smiling off to a fan at an author event, what is it? Authors don't have a uniform or a prop other than a book or a pen. They don't make their living doing things in front of people; they make their living in a room at home, writing. They support that work through this kind of event. Sure, some authors become celebrities and make other kinds of public appearances, and some authors' work lends to some form of public performance, but for a typical fiction author, unless they're also teaching, this is the visible part of their career -- showing up and signing books. In other words, you have not clarified, but just further reinforced that you continue to operate according to your own inscrutable FP criteria. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 13:29, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
I did not accuse you of bad faith. – Sca (talk) 13:49, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
It seems you are promoting the point of view that going to an event known to involve famous authors, with the intent of improving our coverage of pictures of famous authors, is promotionalism. Where do you think open-access-licensed pictures come from? Would it be more appropriate and less promotional to wait until those authors tell their publicists to release a photo as open access, rather than using photos from a volunteer Wikipedian? Do your opinionated edits count as promotionalism for your opinion? Should your promotionalism of your opinion disqualify you from contributing to FPC? Because that may not make much sense, but neither does what you are saying. —David Eppstein (talk) 20:41, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
"promoting the subjects of these photos"? Otherwise known as taking photographs to illustrate Wikipedia articles? Strange interpretation of "promoting". And what relevance is stubbiness of target article? PamD 20:56, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Reason
A high-resolution, beautiful, colour image of the première of a Donizetti opera, from 1835 (and, annoyingly, in WAY better condition than the Massenet posters, which are, like, half a century younger!). Colour is a little basic, but proper colour lithographs were still in development then, and this is great for the time. Plus, it uses what colour it does have very effectively despite the simplicity.

  • Comment It's a lithographic print. The "grain" is inherent in the printing technique, not a defect. Halftones need to be "grainy" or "screened" in litho printing. --Janke | Talk 16:22, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
    • Well, Halftone isn't quite the word I'd choose, as that's usually used for a different technique. But, aye. The point of lithography is you put acid on rocks to make pits to hold ink. It's essentially random at a fine scale. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.7% of all FPs 22:38, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
      • Ehrmmm... not quite. Lithography is planographic, like offset printing. The image is drawn on the stone with fatty media that will hold ink, while the wet stone won't... Any pits only give a "tooth" to the surface, hence the drawing will be "grainy". --Janke | Talk 13:54, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

I am inclined to support the image for FP, but the Wikipedia:Featured picture criteria include the statement "It is preferable to wait a reasonable period of time (at least 7 days) after the image is added to the article before nominating it, though this may be ignored in obvious cases, such as replacing a low-resolution version of an image with a higher resolution of the same image." I suggest that you withdraw this present nomination but return in seven days if the image remains in the article at that time. Thanks again for your nomination, and in the meantime you can look for other images that have been in articles for at least seven days and/or you can vote on existing nominations.

  • If the appearance of an imago is easy to determine this is not the case of the caterpillars, because there are several stages of development which are very different from the appearance of the terminal stage. The collections of specimens mounted for caterpillars exist but are long to prepare it is necessary to blow the caterpillar with a small straw to restore its volume ... it is almost a universe apart that does not interest much of 'entomology.

Reason
Martha Ann Honeywell was an American artist born without hands or forearms, and with only three toes on one foot; nevertheless, she created cut-paper pieces such as this, as well as silhouettes, using her mouth and toes. She appeared as a sideshow act throughout much of the early 19th century. Cutouts with the Lord's Prayer at the center, such as this, were sold by her as souvenirs. The text at the center is the standard text of the prayer; underneath it's signed "Written without hands by Martha Honeywell".

    • @Mattximus: My philosophy is that if a good photograph of a ship from this period exists, that's fantastic, but for specific ships, I'm not going to hold my breath. I think lithographs and paintings can be useful for showing colour, which is otherwise lost from this era, which is. however, most important for the camouflage painting of the First World War or thereabouts.
But which ships have photographs taken in the first place, in good enough condition to matter, and available high-definition is such a crap shoot that I'm not sure it's worth considering unless we have one to hand. Plus, this era of ships go through so much reworking in a desperate attempt to keep them relevant that, unless you happen on photos of them in the same state as in the lithograph, they're complementary anyway.

      • I tend to view them as separate, but related, things with the illustration conveying a lot of different information related to the art. My favorite example is this beauty, an illustration of the sinking of a Russian battleship by a Japanese mine during the Russo-Japanese War: File:Sinking of the Petropavlovsk.jpg.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 23:33, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
