Hi and @Archaeodontosaurus, Basile Morin, W.carter, King of Hearts, Poco a poco: I wonder if you could have a detailed look at this image. I have downloaded it and pixel-peeped and I can see clear evidence that artifical colour (both orange and blue) has been painted onto the image. I know it's only just been promoted, but the decision could be reconsidered if there is a consensus. I'm not pinging everyone who voted. Charles (talk) 13:53, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

There can't be any "clear evidence that artifical colour" on this since the color space of the photo is uncalibrated. That means: "No color-space metadata and no embedded color profile: Windows and Mac browsers and apps treat colors randomly." It is up to your browser/photo program how it looks. --Cart (talk) 15:01, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Just have a look at a pixel level please Cart. Charles (talk) 17:07, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Ok Sir. I don't usually like to pixelpeep but I've had a look at it at 80%, 100%, 200%, 300% and 400% and I can't see what you've got your knickers in a twist about. --Cart (talk) 18:06, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Perhaps too much saturation, yes, but artificial colour added? I can't say that. That would be strange (and more difficult technically) -- Basile Morin (talk) 00:06, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
This image does not pose me personally any problem. What bothers me is that we can question a vote on frivolous and non-objectivable reasons. We have more constructive things to do. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:14, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
  • @Archaeodontosaurus: Exactly why I want this discussion moved away from my talk page, first it is not the right place and second, we have more useful things to do than debate over an image. --Boothsift 05:40, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Keep this discussion on your page because your opponent wanted it that way. If he had put it on the page of discussion of the image the meaning of his approach would have been different. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:48, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
@Archaeodontosaurus: I see, was he suggesting that my nomination was invalid since it was "painted" and he wants me to agree with him in order to delist it? That I will not do, unless Charles provides a reasonable alternative that is not his image. --Boothsift 06:30, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
I don't understand the vitriol. I am sure this image has been doctored and surely that is not frivolous for any wildlife image. The nomination was not invalid and the support votes were made in good faith. But sometimes, a bogus image can slip through. We should be concerned at that. I started this debate here out of courtesy to the nominator. Apologies if you are unhappy. Boothsift. Charles (talk) 08:31, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
