American Eskimo Dog[edit]

Great photo of an American Eskimo Dog taken by Robert Southworth. It seemed to stand out from most other dog images, and I feel it's very striking. Sango123 23:14, May 11, 2005 (UTC)

  • Nominate and support. Sango123 23:14, May 11, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support! - I tried repeatedly without success to get a decent photo of my own American Eskimo Dog for this very article, so I know how much work went into this. The dog is clean and the color contrast is perfect. This is a terrific photo. H2O 07:43, 12 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose - sorry, not a striking pic to me. Certainly it's good but not good enough for Featured Pic - Adrian Pingstone 14:17, 12 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose A nice snapshot, but not of FP quality. Denni 23:44, 2005 May 12 (UTC)
  • Support The picture is right on the money: a perfect moment for the dog is captured, and it doesn't look contrived. It's both beautiful and striking, and significantly adds to the article it was posted for. Bagginz 06:43, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose Too low res. --Fir0002 22:23, May 19, 2005 (UTC)
    • Why is the resolution too low? If it's not good enough for a book, it looks fine for the web. Bagginz 04:50, 20 May 2005 (UTC)
      • Maybe it's just my monitor's resolution (1280x1024), but this photo is too small even for web. --Fir0002 06:39, May 22, 2005 (UTC)
        • The image is now at the original camera resolution (1546x1213). Sango123 00:18, May 23, 2005 (UTC)
          • Ok, well that's better. Support --Fir0002 22:07, May 23, 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Why do people insist on trying to make every nice picture they come across featured? Deltabeignet 19:14, 20 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment - I think this is not just a "nice picture"; it illustrates the article Dog, American Eskimo Dog, and several others very nicely. Unlike other dog pictures, the subject of this image is not unnaturally stiff, and its expression and position aren't forced. This may not be the best picture out there, but it's definitely outstanding in its category. The color contrast, in my opinion, is aesthetically pleasing, and to me, the dog's expression is captivating. Well, that's just my opinion. You guys decide. :-) Sango123 00:21, May 21, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support Very striking photo, perfect focus. I like it. --JiFish 00:53, 21 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Support I've uploaded a new version at the original camera resolution (1546x1213). Robert Southworth 00:02, 23 May 2005 (UTC)]
  • No vote. The dog is excellent, the background is dull suburban lawn. Maybe someone can transplant it. I think it'd help if some sky were visible. Deco 22:22, 23 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Possibly, but I think the dog's more-or-less pure white contrasts nicely with the darker green of the lawn. Transplanting the dog into a new background or changing the background into another scene would probably make the image look "Photoshopped", as it can sometimes be difficult to get fur and hair to look natural and not ragged when doing such a thing.

  • Support - It's a good photo, and one of the better dog photos I've seen.--Silversmith 23:38, 24 May 2005 (UTC)
