OriginalJapanese macaques (Macaca fuscata) grooming each other at the Jigokudani Monkey Park in Yamanouchi.
Reason
Surprisingly, this is the only video we have of this behavior in primates and one of only three videos we have showing social grooming behavior in any animals. This was promoted at commons a few days ago.

That's upsampling, a practice that is strongly frowned upon at FPC. You should revert your changes - (1) per c:COM:OVERWRITE and (2) the information "added" by the upsampling algorithm is literally made up and can be anything. Upsampling does not address the lack of physical resolution (i.e. information per steradian, see also Angular resolution) in the original image. Speedy close. MER-C 14:31, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Reason
It's a quirky, but engaging composition, full of some nice symbolism. Has to be CSS cropped in her article a bit, but that's more to do with Wikipedia's layouts and not having another photo of her, so it needs to do double duty.

OriginalIlya Ilyich Mechnikov/Élie Metchnikoff, the Russian scientist who discovered phagocytes and won the 1908 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine
Reason
There's a few good pictures of him on Gallica, but I've always preferred an "action" shot, where available. It's not perfect - The original was a bit overexposed, and while I could bring it down a bit, it's very contrasty between the pure white equipment and coat, and dark background.

A head-on photo, as close to the palace as the alternate, is not possible because the area between the fountain and the palace is restricted. Both of these photos are FP at Commons and I don't want to mess with the levels on the original. The original is a panorama that has been stitched together.

  • There is no tilt in the bottom horizontal lines of the building. The top horizontal lines have a slight tilt because the camera isn't positioned in the front center of the building. That kind of tilt is evident in real life too (expected), if one stood there, so I don't think it's a significant drawback, it is a natural phenomena given the camera position. Another way of saying it is: the left side of the building is closer to the camera, the right ride of the building is farther from the camera, so the left side of the building should appear larger than the right side, and it does.

    • "This photo is a single shot, no HDR, no [retouches], no cut and paste", according to the photographer. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 17:19, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
      • From the discussion you linked to, it sounds like the over-processed appearance is due to lightening the shadows while darkening the sky (which is superficially similar to the effect you would get with HRD). According to the featured image criteria "Typical acceptable manipulation includes cropping, perspective correction, sharpening/blurring, and colour/exposure correction. More extensive manipulation should be clearly described in the image text." Selective lightening and darkening (especially to the point where it looks unnatural) seems like it would qualify as "more extensive manipulation". The unmanipulated original image would be more appropriate for Wikipedia (if the photographer was willing to provide it). Kaldari (talk) 20:57, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
        • @Kaldari: What exactly do you mean by "unmanipulated original"? The raw file? Afaik there is no way to upload raws to commons. And to get a view from the RAW-data one needs some kind of development anyway. And all I did to develop this photo was an overall enhancement of the gradation. So basicly the same thing almost every a bit more experience photographer does in Lightroom with almost anny image - not even talking about smartphones and consumer cameras, that have this kind of image processinge already built in.
          Anyhow: The atmosphere of this image comes quite close to what a saw there with my own eyes that day (Here is a view from the opposite direction). And the fact that cameras nowadays are able to handle a dynamic range that comes closer to the one of out eyes, imo makes a shot more realistic than less. // Martin Kraft (talk) 16:00, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
          • I'm sure you know what I mean by "unmanipulated original". I agree that enhancing photographs is commonplace and generally desirable. Wikipedia, however, prefers purely documentary photographs over beautiful photographs (unlike Commons). My issue with the photo is that the scenery appears brightly lit, as if on a sunny cloudless day, while the sky appears full of heavy clouds (that somehow don't have any shadows). To my eye, it looks unreal. The composition is superb, however, and I would gladly support featuring a less manipulated version. I hope that sounds reasonable. Kaldari (talk) 16:34, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
            • No sorry, I really do not know, what you mean by "unmanipulated original". Because something like "the original" does not exist in digital photography, since every step that goes beyond the raw elektronic information coming from the chip already is a manipulation of this data. And that is not limeted to the things a photograprapher can do in post processing but also includes the things the camera itself is doing to generate a preview version from the very same data.
              As you might know a professional cameras support a lot of parameters, that define how this preview is developed from the raw. Consumer cameras also include this development process, usually one can only use presets. The idea that there is such a thing as a digital original is therefore an illusion.
              This aside, I doupt that the image would be any better from an encyclopedic point of view, if the dynamic range of the image would be so limited, that the sky burns out to white while the frame is solid black. Please do not confuse the limited dynamic range we are used to by older cameras, with what was really visible there to the clear eye. Standing on the window, I did not neither see black underexposed areas nor a burned out sky, but the clouds as well as the paint on the frame.
              One last comment about the weather: There are a lot of weather conditions between gloomy cloudy and crystal clear sky. And about the best weather condition ist the one yout see here: A lot of moving clouds of different opacity, that deliver as sunny ligthing without hard shadows.
              Of course yout are free to stick to you're judgement, but please note, that there is no absolute right or wrong when it comes to the color grading of a photograph. // Martin Kraft (talk) 17:17, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
              • I didn't say unprocessed original, I said unmanipulated original (I'm familiar with using RAW files). And I generally have no problem with digital manipulation, as long as it still looks realistic. I realize that this is a subjective judgement and prone to error, but that's still my judgement. It also looks like someone in the Commons discussion had the same concerns, although I don't now why anyone on Commons would care. Kaldari (talk) 18:02, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Théophile Thoré-BürgerEdit

Reason
He's an interesting fellow. French art critic, rediscovered Vermeer. I think what really attracted me, though, was the difference between what I could do for his image and the low-quality, rather oddly-cropped scan that was there. Stumbled on it while looking for a good image for Nadar - I found a really good one, but he has a beard in it, and that's not the most common one portrayed, so I need to think.

Anyway, this is another of his son's enlargements of his father's negatives. Some film and paper grain, but, on the whole, I think it's pretty good.

Phra Phuttha ChinnaratEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 8 Nov 2019 at 18:11:29 (UTC)

 
Original – The Phra Phuttha Chinnarat, widely considered to be the most beautiful Buddha image in Thailand, is housed in the vihara of Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat.
Reason
Testing waters a bit with this one. It's a handheld shot, but of good enough quality, I think, of one of the most famous Buddha images in Thailand. The nominated picture shows a bit more of the architecture than Alt1 (though it still doesn't include the ceiling, as it's presumably quite impossible to get a wider angle shot with the constant crowds). This was inspired by the Eldridge Street Synagogue nom.

Original – An unnamed Marine Corps officer candidate during a Medal of Honor run at Marine Corps Base Quantico in August 2019
Reason
I've been going through and selectively uploading images from the official US DOD website, and to be totally honest, I just really like this image. For context, company runs suuck and officer candidate school suuucks. The entire process is designed to beat you down and make you quit. You can see the suck on her face, the dirt and sweat, but she is still entirely composed, perfectly at the position of attention, and you can see exactly the indifferent endurance that this type of training is supposed to instill. The lighting is great. The composition is great. The guy standing at attention on the right, a head taller than her. The guy on the left casually looking off to the side, which he isn't supposed to be doing while the entire formation stands at the position of attention (chest out, arms down, eyes forward). Her whole demeanor just screams military discipline. The picture just perfectly illustrates exactly the surreal exhaustion you feel at that moment, chest out, arms down, eyes forward, knee deep in suck, but the suck be damned.

    • That is not quite what personality rights protect. Say for example I own a company that makes strawberry jam and I take a photo of you to use on my logo; I plaster your photograph on every jar and use your likeness to advertise and sell my product. I would be violating your personality rights. That is not the same as taking your photograph in public, and selling the photograph or using the photograph on my commercial website. I don't think any personality rights apply in this case, unless Japan has some specialized laws. The crucial difference is the use of the likeness akin to a trademark which is not the case here. What may apply is WP:BLP. However, I don't think any of the faces are that clearly recognizable here. Even if they were, they are in public and have no expectation of privacy here, AFAIK. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 17:08, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

There is central of modern Tehran sited north of Tehran at the time of taking the photo. Direction of of photo is south to north. Alborzagros (talk) 11:29, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
I'm more interested in the landmarks - in particular the large square. Would the walled area be what is now the Park-e Shahr and the National Garden, Tehran? (By the way, don't let the silence deter you. Participation is higher than this and this image when restored it is definitely worth considering for its value as a historical document, composition notwithstanding. I believe Adam Cuerden takes requests.) MER-C 20:48, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
Park-e Shahr is on the southern tip of Meydān-e Mashq. Now-days the compounds of the Foreign Ministry is located inside the square. Also the Grand Gate of the National Garden is clearly visible in this photo. --Gnosis (talk) 06:13, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

There appears to be no other more general featured content process, and a former featured sound project was discontinued in 2011. Is this the right way to reinstate sounds as featured content? —David Eppstein (talk) 20:32, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
    • I guess, in a way, I am advocating a merger/expansion of scope. Perhaps a change, to Wikipedia:Featured media and "Today's featured media". This may require an RfC since there are implications on the Main Page. I was testing the waters. IMO, it is not a large leap. We already feature videos, films, why not music, sound? --- Coffeeandcrumbs 07:55, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Since then, the article has been stable, though attracted edits from a few people. The picture remains a high-quality portrait of a notable individual by a notable photographer.

    • Generally speaking by having the background distant from the subject. Here background for these is very dry grass on a gentle slope behind the branch. The photos are taken from a hide in an area experiencing drought near a water source, namely a bird bath at some accommodation which I found out about and booked in the area. I sat in a hide for most of the few days there but the camera didn't move very much, hence the similarity of the backgrounds. Unfortunately much of the bush around the property has since been burned in the Gospers Mountain bushfire so I'm afraid that this approach in this location won't exactly be a repeatable activity.

  • Oppose – inappropriate (excessive) digital manipulation. FP criteria 8 says limited, well-done corrections. Here, the background is transformed, not corrected. It looks artificial or fake. Bammesk (talk) 01:28, 22 November 2019 (UTC)
    • Thanks for your input Bammesk. Simply unfounded and not the case. RAW here. JJ Harrison (talk) 19:28, 22 November 2019 (UTC)
      • I struck that portion of my comments. The backgrounds still look odd or artificial, as if they were manipulated in post process (rather than real life). The images have EV, so I understand the support votes, but I still lean to oppose based on the aesthetics of the images. Bammesk (talk) 16:34, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Support. It's a shame that the positioning is a little different, but I'd support either individually, so I'm happy to support as a pair. Josh Milburn (talk) 18:22, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

    • Per the evidence provided in response to the Double-barred Finch and White-winged Triller nominations this is not the case. JJ Harrison (talk) 19:45, 22 November 2019 (UTC)
