Onion and potato pakoras, a popular Indian snack
Attempt at lightening
3rd. attempt

I took this picture to illustrate Pakora and I was quite pleased with how it turned out. Even if it's not up to Featured Picture standards, I welcome suggestions for how to improve this or future photographs. — Knowledge Seeker 06:55, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • Neutral. -Image could be very nice if contrast/brightness/gamma were appropriately adjusted, it's a little dark. It does look delicious though....damnit! now I have to go get a korma for dinner! :o)--Deglr6328 21:28, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • I tried lightening it in Photoshop, although I know very little about that type of adjustment. I'm not sure if I like it, though, because the colors don't seem as real. If someone knows more about this he is welcome to help. — Knowledge Seeker 21:57, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • Here's my attempt. (3rd) I've lightened and centered the image and applied an unsharp mask to the nearest bits. One problem though, I can't tell if the colors are too off because I'm uhhh, rather deficient in that area. :) The batter on ones I've had though is quite orangey and I don't think this is too awful a representation...--Deglr6328 23:12, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)
        • No, I like your version. In fact, after this is over, I may switch the article to use that one instead. — Knowledge Seeker 03:23, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose - informative but not terribly visually appealing. Lupin 22:45, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Agree with Lupin. I think featured pictures of dishes should be as good as those used in cookbooks. This image fails that test. Junes 08:42, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose - just not interesting or striking - Adrian Pingstone 08:13, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Yes it doesn't pass the cookbook test, and the entire dish isn't in focus. Enochlau 11:02, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)
