Hi @Charlesjsharp:, it's actually this species. It's crispy clear showing details barely visible to the naked eye with no artifacts at all. The one you linked is a completely different species. The hawk moths main feature is the head area, particularly the markings shown, how they mimic a snake with fangs. It's face, the clearest part in focus, is usually not noticeable owing to its shape and markings, hence what makes this a great angle, ~ R.T.G 18:21, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
I should apologise, the thing which makes this creature intersting is that it is not really possible to tell what it is if you didn't already know. I should of thought of that when nominating. I invite you to look at the particular species category and take note only of the sort with the short face and the similar coloured markings (European variety). It sort of hides its face under the coloured neck area so this is a unique view of the actual creature beyond its camouflage, ~ R.T.G 18:33, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Actually the two species are quite close relatives in the Sphingidae family. Charles (talk) 22:10, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Relatives maybe, appearance, very different. It's actually an amazing creature to spot out. Where the one you linked has a long snout-like appearance, like an ant-eater, this one has a bunched neck to give it the appearance of a snakes head, and literally looks like a cartoon snake. I mean, it actually looks like that. It's a great picture, from experience. You'd know it immediately. Great poster for a fan of the thing. Perfect. Love it. ~ R.T.G 23:55, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Delist and replace -- Mikael Häggström (talk) 15:17, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment Hi Mikael. We don't need to delist/replace images -- Commons FP can have more than one featured hip replacement. That said, looking at the category, I think the old FP is not representative of the best such images. I wonder if your new photo would be better nominated as a set, with the before photograph. There's quite a lot of flesh clearly represented, and an IUD, which for some purposes could distract a little from the bone/replacement, but has its own merits too. Is the occupation of the subject relevant -- I'd tend towards minimising possibly identifying information. -- Colin (talk) 17:51, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment I agree with Colin that you should not delist the old one. Simply nominate the new one and perhaps some other images in the set. It is also great to keep the old for comparison with the new to illustrate the development of X-ray photos over time. Please keep the info about this being a nurse. I suspect you do that to indicate that this is one of "your own" and patients should not have to worry that you'd take just any X-ray images and make them public. This is done in many professions and we also have photos stating "Wikipedian modeling with ...". --Cart (talk) 03:26, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
  • ALT2: Whole case series. As suggested below. I did get written consent from the person, including mentioning the occupation, so that should not be a significant issue here. Also, I agree the older image may indeed be more appropriate to show a hip prosthesis specifically, since the newer one makes other objects and structures visible.

  •   Info Polymer artifact, probably belonging to a young, possibly infant, human, found in a cooking area right outside habitation ID registration 10154001160001 Swedish National Heritage Board. The location of the find outside the main compound suggests it belonged to a visitor and not one of the indigenous habitants, which can explain why it was not retrieved.

  •   Support Just about the only work-of-art on this page. I like the composition, the colourful, sharply focused and very rounded dummy contrasting with the grey weathered wood that is all straight lines. A fine example of the "elements of composition" (see Commons:Photography terms#Composition). In fact, I think I'm going to stick it on that page. -- Colin (talk) 17:18, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support -- Eatcha (talk) 20:38, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support It's just a nice picture to look at because the composition is good and the colours are pleasant. Also, it's nice to see good quality photos here at FPC - other than mountains during the sunset, panoramas of glaciers or historical paintings (nothing against them, I'm just saying that I'd like to see more diversification here). --Podzemnik (talk) 23:25, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Yes Podzemnik and others, diversity is exactly why I make these "odd" nominations. We need really good photo of everything and I prefer to photograph objects in a context with interesting background, rather than sticking them on a clinically white or black backdrop. I can't understand why people find that so provoking, even to the point that some user thinks I've lost it and "need take a brake". That comment will be added to my growing collection of strange things said about my noms. I think I have proved that I can take "normal FPCs" (and my life would be so much easier if I just stuck with the mainstream photos), but for the wide scope of this project I find it more useful to photograph subjects we don't have FPs of. --Cart (talk) 08:45, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
  • My guess is the "maybe you need take a brake" comment was a response to your humorous archaeology-parody text (which I very much appreciated). Wilfredor isn't a native English speaker, though improving in that regard in his new home country, so perhaps the advanced-English humour didn't work for him, or perhaps he was trying to respond in kind to your "I may have spent too much time with archeologists" self-deprecation, and that didn't translate either. I wouldn't dwell on it. -- Colin (talk) 09:35, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose I disagree with Colin. IMO just a "forgotten pacifier on a table in Röe gård café" - not that special or aesthetically pleasing. —kallerna (talk) 05:05, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support --El Grafo (talk) 09:41, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose The level of blur of the background is unpleasant. I don't find the artefact interesting, and the composition is not working with this blurry wall, awkwardly cropped.
Concerning the diversity of the nominations here, I think we feature all kind of images : Animals, Astronomy, Food and drink, Historical, Natural phenomena, Objects, Other lifeforms, People and Places. Today's POTD, for example, is well composed and very artistic : File:Грот_на_мысе_Большой_Атлеш.jpg -- Basile Morin (talk) 11:50, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Yes I know, I have sorted many of them into those categories, but the selection is far from as diverse as it could be especially wrt to normal everyday human activities and items. --Cart (talk) 12:12, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Well, the selection is just based on a consensus. There's no limitation concerning the various possible nominations as far as I know in the guidelines -- Basile Morin (talk) 12:18, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
I agree, and I hope some of my noms of items like this will encourage other users to photograph what they have around them and not always look to a far off horizon in the setting sun (figuratively speaking). But seeing how such choices are received here at FPC, I'm sorry to say that I think most photographers will be discouraged to try and not risk the discussions I have to face. --Cart (talk) 12:43, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
That's more about improvement in my opinion. To quote Jim Richardson : “If you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff.” -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:19, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

This picture shows a high level of blur that is extremely distracting and totally unaesthetic, what do you want ? that I support because it's an insignificant object ? -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:35, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
No, your oppose is a totally valid way of expressing what you felt about the photo, it was the second part about diversity that sparked the discussion. Please don't mix them up. --Cart (talk) 13:43, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
So do you think we should promote weak candidatures just because it's rare to see ordinary QIs nominated here ? -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:50, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
You and some other consider this a weak nom, I and some other consider this a strong candidate. Opinions differ, just like on any other nom. Some like the contrasting dof and surfaces, others don't. Some think white cars are ok, some don't. It's all a matter of taste. --Cart (talk) 13:57, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, flaws... -- Basile Morin (talk) 14:55, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Oh, BTW, there is no wall in this photo, that is the rim of the table, kind of like this. --Cart (talk) 12:51, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Agree with Cart, our selection is most peculiar and this does have consequences on how images get judged. Most of the world's professional-level photography consists of famous or beautiful people doing things, or cultural and social events. Yet that makes up a tiny proportion of our image bank and a negligible proportion of Commoner-taken photography. The photographic areas where FP photographers are inexperienced, such as professional food and portrait photography, also tend to be the areas where reviewers are most critical, and offer the most ridiculous nit-picking rationales for oppose. So while our guidelines do not limit what we promote, there is very much a bias towards safe well-trodden subjects that reviewers are comfortable with, and a disinclination towards the unfamiliar. Just look at the FP category for this: "Objects / other". We don't really know what box to put this in. Many here lack the tools to judge the unfamiliar and I suggest expanding the photographic experience with some books or visiting a gallery. This is a problem for the project, because we lack good photos of everyday things. Many of our nominations get "wow" from the photographer being fortunate enough to be standing in front of something amazing and simply pressing a button on their expensive cameras. Much harder to get "wow" for the craft of photography itself. And it is a problem if it discourages folk. We recently had some food photos that failed that were simply head and shoulders above the sort of image anyone here is taking. A reviewer, who knows nothing about taking such photos, can of course point at our guidelines and complain about blown highlights or focus. And so we continue to fail to attract any professional level food photographers. We have no shortage of church interiors or glaciated mountains.... -- Colin (talk) 13:12, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
What a long theory just because no wow -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:25, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
The discussion did not evolve from the "no wow" that was ok, but from your assertion that the selection of FPs is already diverse enough. I think you realize that but you only wanted a clever last comment, and I suspect one will follow this too. ;-) --Cart (talk) 13:39, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Yes of course, lol   -- Basile Morin (talk) 13:41, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

The Richardson quote is, like many quotes, too simplistic. (Jimbo's "a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge" is bullshit when you think about it to any level). It also reflects the experience of a privileged (white, male, western and commissioned by National Geographic) photographer. I really hope, Basile, that you are not for a moment suggesting that Commons FP shouldn't include great photos of mundane subjects. I think, rather, you are just fond of arguing. -- Colin (talk) 13:48, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

Basile has moved my comment from the location where it made sense, to the top level where it appears I am creating some new topic of conversation. This problem with Basile has been discussed before, with examples, and he doesn't listen. Now he has moved on from simply being argumentative for the sake of it, to being disruptive for the sake of it, so it is time to stop feeding this childish attention-seeking behaviour and unwatch. -- Colin (talk) 15:03, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

So I looked at the other versions to see how they looked and found the near identical number 05 that had a sharp front but the rest unsharp. As I seems to remember, you don't do focus stacked images, but it seems a shame not to combine these two photos to make a stunning and totally sharp image. I hope you will forgive me for making a merge just to see how it looked. If you like it, it is yours to use as you see fit. Here is a link to version 03-05 in my Dropbox.

  •   Delist - These old delisted FPs will still be listed as former FPs, right? It's good to have a history of what were considered high-quality digital photos at different times, but this definitely is not an FP by today's standards. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:06, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Delist -- Boothsift 05:12, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

  • @Ikan Kekek: The composition is a wooden sea defence. There are definitely much better wooden sea defence pictures and it clearly isn't the only wooden sea defence out there. --Boothsift 01:02, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment - That clearly is going to be the result, but my position is that when it's not really obvious, we shouldn't be trolling through all of the old FPs to delist them. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:14, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
  • @Ikan Kekek: If I were doing this in order of promotion, then this wouldn't be the one I would have nominated. There's a small chance that I might have looked at each one since I skipped three from 2004 and a bunch from 2005. --Boothsift 01:08, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Delist Even without considering the quality issues I would not have supported this as an FP. It's a decent picture and illustrates the subject well, but it's crying out for something to give the composition a bit more interest or tension. Cmao20 (talk) 14:20, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

Built in 1628, St Katherine Cree is an important example of Jacobean architecture, a time during which few churches were constructed.

  •   Support -- Domob (talk) 05:36, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment It's a nice view and composition, but the pasterisation in the sky is too much for FP I think. Can you try to do something about it? Also, I can see at least 1 dust spot. By the way how come that ISO is 200? The exposure program says "Normal program" which is automatic exposure I guess? --Podzemnik (talk) 06:53, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing the page name, I'll be sure to take care in the future! I tried to reduce the gradient in the sky, is it better now? Where is the dust spot? I'll be happy to remove it. If your question is why ISO 200 and not 100, then that's simply because for some reason ISO 200 is what my camera considers the default. --Domob (talk) 08:31, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
@Domob I've put a note where the spot is. I don't see a significant improvement in the sky, I even wonder if it's fixable... --Podzemnik (talk) 09:15, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the note, I removed the dust spot now and reworked the sky a bit more. Just for clarification, are you concerned about the gradient from dark on the left to brighter on the right, or the gradient from the very top to the horizon? There were quite strong winds with sand, so the latter is likely caused by sand in the air. --Domob (talk) 09:51, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Strong support Sublime to the point of being otherworldly, and that's a high bar to get over given our other Namibian desert pictures. I almost swooned at it, and that's saying a lot for a desert landscape given the heat wave I'm sitting in looking at this. Perhaps some of the empty space at the top could be cropped down a bit more, but that's really a matter of taste on which I defer to the photographer. Daniel Case (talk) 18:45, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Weak support Very nice dunes and great evening light, but the composition within the frame is important, and here 50% is filled with boring sky. Instead of a 4:3 crop, I would suggest a standard 3:2, because this gradient is not as interesting as this relief with sand. Cutting just over the fine clouds, you'll get a more striking image -- Basile Morin (talk) 02:02, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback! I'm happy to do that change, as it might indeed look nicer. But I'd like to get others feedback on this as well (in case some of the current supporters wouldn't want this change to happen). --Domob (talk) 07:21, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose Per others --Boothsift 03:47, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Per others. Pro: subject centered nicely within a square, subdued colours, and slanted illumination. Con: too much chromatic noise and weak image sharpness. --Franz van Duns (talk) 17:38, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose Not bad for a smartphone photo but I think the quality is not there. It's quite patchy and it looks like some kind of a filter has been used here. Good for Instafram but not FP for me, sorry. --Podzemnik (talk) 01:38, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Info created, uploaded and nominated by me. I like the light and composition. The photo was taken right after the sunrise so the sun is shining right into the structure. The photo is photo-stacked from 2: one photo is focused on the structure, another photo is focused on the Moon. The grass is quite soft but I think it's alright - it provides some depth to it and I couldn't really photo-stacked it anyway, it was quite windy and the grass was moving a lot. -- Podzemnik (talk) 10:18, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Weak oppose Good picture, and certainly a subject with FP potential, but Cart is right that the spiral is cut, and the glare from the bottom left bothers me. I think the execution could be a litte bit better for FP. Cmao20 (talk) 23:21, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose per others--Boothsift 00:32, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Weak oppose per Cmao20. The unexpectedly colourful apex gives a cheery note together with the very unusual spirals taken from a lop-sided perspective. I like that. As the perimeter areas are not really sharp, I suggest choosing a square format and a radical crop, hewing off one complete turn of the outer spiral and solely concentrating on the colours/structures against the blue. This would, of course be a new image altogether. --Franz van Duns (talk) 16:41, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Change to   Oppose. Colin is definitely right about the technical flaws. I think my screen wasn't bright enough to see the posterisation earlier. Cmao20 (talk) 00:58, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Weak   Oppose Per Cmao20, quality is good and the view nice, but you alone have a bunch of such images. The whole mountain range could be FP to me but this frame alone is not telling me much in terms of composition, sorry Poco2 17:03, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
