  • Oppose - Shadow detail totally lost, compare with the signed photo on file page. --Janke | Talk 13:12, 28 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Support – yes the shadows are lost, but it should be judged for what it is: a documentary photo, an early space photo, 1966, the first of its kind (EVA), as published by NASA [1], the lighting contrast is too severe to expect reasonable shadows (or else the highlights would blow), one-time event (irreplaceable). FP criteria has several exceptions for photos like this. Bammesk (talk) 18:11, 1 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
