  • Support as nominator The quality is not extraordinary, but this is largely compensated by the historical value. – Yann (talk) 18:30, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
  • There's a couple of areas that could do with a little more cleanup - a streak on the RHS at about y=700 and that stuff in the top left appears to be a smudge and not smoke. By the way, may I interest you in File:San Francisco Fire Sacramento Street 1906-04-18.jpg? MER-C 20:36, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
  • @MER-C: Done. I see there is a history here... One thing at a time... Yann (talk) 23:46, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment Not entirely happy with the sky. It looks kind of overblown, in a very dirty way. Though it doesnt' look as bad from some angles on my LCD screen Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 23:32, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
  • @Adam Cuerden: What do you suggest? As I said above, the quality is a bit below other candidates, but I think this is compensated by the historical value. Regards, Yann (talk) 23:37, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Dodge/burn tool? Might also want to crop some sky: The buidings aren't bad at all. I think cropping a little above the two smoke plumes would get rid of a lot of ugly damaged sky with a net improvement to composition. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 23:56, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
  • I am fine with a crop. Should I overload the image? What do others think? Regards, Yann (talk) 11:17, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Up to you. Feel free to remove my mockup when it's no longer helpful. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 11:47, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
Almost perfect now. I've added a couple image notes on a last couple things, but I'm sure you'll get them. Support Seriously, skies are the worst. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 13:32, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
 Done Yann (talk) 13:47, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
I've noted one more thing I noted while reviewing. I'm sorry for all the trouble. I think my monitor has fairly good detail in the upper range. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.4% of all FPs 14:54, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
OK, done. Yann (talk) 16:37, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Support – Good historical EV. Sca (talk) 15:41, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Support. MER-C 20:50, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Support – we have other FPs in the article, but the nom image is a good depiction of the damage. Bammesk (talk) 03:53, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
