Steamboat Bill, Jr.Edit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 1 Sep 2019 at 22:28:39 (UTC)

OriginalSteamboat Bill, Jr. complete movie
Reason
High EV. I cued up the very beginning of most famous scene but Keaton's amazing stunts are around 59:00 and 59:30 into the film (3 minutes after where I cued the film to start). This film is a triumph in film making and the entire film has been restored appears in good shape.

Ubu RoiEdit

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 5 Sep 2019 at 04:43:02 (UTC)

 
Original – Programme from the première production of Ubu Roi in 1896
Reason
Obviously, this one has to go on encyclopedic value more than art quality, but this is the programme, created by the author, for the incredibly influential work Ubu Roi. As such, I think EV quite outweighs the fact that it's a very weird image, although if you've seen the costumes, or know a bit about the play, you'd know it's not as weird as you'd think. ...Or, at least, it's appropriately weird.

  • Conditional support – Top EV, but a little restoration of the tears & creases in the corners would be welcome. --Janke | Talk 19:01, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment I checked the original image at Wiki commons and found that the first image (from 22 September 2008) had retained just a slight more of the museum's mark "29057B" at the bottom right corner than the more recent image. The closing "B", for whatever reason, went amiss in the new version. No complaint, this image would still claim my full support, would I be entitled to vote (56 edits to go). Otherwise, regarding the very moderate creases, wrinkles and stains on the paper edges I would take a different stance than Janke and I would retain all as is, as it is exactly these flaws that provide this seasoned poster (now aged 123 years) with an aura of authenticity. Regarding the printed areas, some amount of retouching will certainly be necessary in other cases, but this poster makes a very well-preserved impression which IMHO renders further retouching unnecessary. -- Franz van Duns (talk) 20:53, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Support Alt 1. One tiny quibble - above the woman in the blue hat above the T in Vitascope, there are two white marks at men's necks, which have been removed in the restoration, presumably as damage. I don't think they are - at least the left-hand one is quite clearly-formed, and looks to me like it's the man's collar. I'd be slightly happier if these were put back; but not a huge deal.

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 8 Sep 2019 at 05:49:10 (UTC)

 
Original – Queen Lili'uokalani of the Hawaiian Kingdom
Reason
A fine image of a very important monarch, who also wrote quite a number of well-known songs. Also, has her signature on it. And, yes, the image is meant to be sepia. If I were to remove the sepia, I'd need to remove her signature, because it wouldn't be a good representation of the signed photo seen here.
Articles in which this image appears
Lili'uokalani, Hawaiian Kingdom, and quite a few other notable usages. It replaced an older, smaller and crappier Library of Congress scan, and various low-res scans from various places.

The Eve of the Battle of Edge HillEdit

OriginalCharles Landseer's 1845 portrayal of King Charles I's war council prior to the Battle of Edgehill. The King stands centre wearing a blue sash; Prince Rupert of the Rhine is sat next to him, while The Prince of Wales (later Charles II) and the Duke of York (later James II) are the two boys behind Prince Rupert's back.
Reason
The image has high educational value. The Battle of Edgehill was one of the first significant battles of the English Civil War. I am inexperienced at FP, so I am less well placed to judge the quality, but it looks to be good to me; apologies if I'm mistaken.

  • Comment Impressively huge panorama of an impresssive vista, extremely great detail for a vario lens (EF24-70mm) even at 1:1 screen pixel resolution, 38mm must be near the "sweet spot", albeit the far lower corners are a bit soft. At first view when maximised I thought I had found a stitching artefact two finger widths from the left edge at almost exactly half height: looks like a short distance of gravel roadway coming diagonally from behind the hilltop at front which abruptly ends in nowhere. Upon close scrutination I'm sure the road simply levels out and continues almost invisibly to the right to disappear behind the next hillside. So all's OK!

@Janke, @Charlesjsharp: Thanks for your encouragement!
In the past decennium I (and my wife) have continually been doing translation cleansing hither and thither whenever we stumbled upon wikipedia articles with obvious language deficiencies (both English and German), albeit all anonymously signed by daily changing IP addresses, until I decided to join wiki commons in 2018.
Last week I added a flurry of modern, high-resolution sensors to this List of sensors used in digital cameras, each with an appropriate reference (... ahem, once I had found out how to do so properly).
Upcoming to-do list: I've decided to have a bash at some of the articles centering on stereoscopy, and, of course, I'll keep up correcting typos and translation mistakes. We'll see. Thanks again. -- Franz van Duns (talk) 08:26, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Reason
A fine image, and Norway's feminist movements are underrepresented (Okay, they're getting better represented now, but that's because of me nominating more). The licensing may seem odd, but it's either correct, or the photo is PD (so, at the least, it's a valid photo to host) For those interested: The uploader licensed it CC; Norwegian law means you can yourself gain copyright by releasing a previously unreleased photo. It's either CC because of the uploader publishing it as CC (giving him/her rights over it) or PD because it was published at the time. The uploader has not responded to a clarification request.

  • I'm not sure how much it'll do, given the grain size. I mean, I think its historic merit makes up for it, but, other than cropping out the edges, I don't see much use. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 06:42, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
  • There are some obvious dust and hair spots in the darker background areas that are a little distracting. —David Eppstein (talk) 07:04, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Weak support. Decent although not excellent image quality and dubious composition, but I think the EV and interesting subject matter is enough to make up for that. —David Eppstein (talk) 07:04, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
I've done a restoration, and fixed the misspelt (restauration?), non-descriptive filename while I was at it.

OriginalSwiss Armed Forces preparing a war pigeon to deliver its message.
Reason
Having realised I've fuully restored this twice, and that any remaining detail is very minor and very localised, I think I'm feeling happier about this. And it passed Commons FPC, so maybe I'm being too hard on myself.
