  • In the previous nomination, it was mentioned that more contrast is needed, so I added some. I also removed a few spots. Yann (talk) 20:50, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment I love the image, but completely desaturating it makes it look less formal, and more like a cheap photocopy to me. Can a little bit more of the original slight colouration be added back in? Compare [1], where everthing just seems a little more high quality for reasons that are probably a mix between psychological, and differing saturations emphasising a luminosity gradient. I mean, the hair blends into the background here. It doen't in [2] - and the only real differece is desaturation. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 04:49, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Well, sometimes, one shouldn't complain too much, and just do something. Support Alt 1 or 2 Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 12:01, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
@Adam Cuerden: I would support either, but could you please wait for a consensus before changing the image in the article? Thanks, Yann (talk) 12:25, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, force of habit when I'm doing the nomination. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 13:25, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose - posterization in both noticeably worse than the original. MER-C 15:25, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment – I think Alt 1 is definitely an improvement and I am leaning to support. How about laying Alt 1 with 50% opacity on top of the first uploaded version here, would that be an improvement? Bammesk (talk) 02:48, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
    • Alt 1 is a restoration, there's heavy work to remove scratches, so the damage would then be right back and present. The vertical lines would reappear in the background; her cheeks would be scratched up again, etc. If you're saying you want the levels adjusted, that's pretty easily done. Hold on.

  • Support Alt 1 – in the face area, the shades have more range (detail) in Alt 1 compared to Alt 2. In two spots: x,y=(777,750) and (860,757), the slightly brighter touchups in this version might be a good idea? but not a big deal. Bammesk (talk) 00:44, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Slight preference for Alt 2. --Yann (talk) 10:42, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Support alt 1 or alt 2. MER-C 18:17, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Alt 2 --Walk Like an Egyptian (talk) 22:15, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Alt 2, though I think the ideal is alt 2's saturation with the levels about halfway between alt 1 and 2. Qono (talk) 01:38, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Support Alt 1 as first choice, Support Alt 2 as second choice. Tend to agree with Bammesk, but both would work. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 04:35, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
