A game of The Game of Life in progress[edit]

Inspired by the Monopoly photo, I took this shot and spent ages cutting the background out. Illustrates the gameplay beautifully.

  • Oppose. Cash and cards are cropped. Would support if image shows everything. -- Chris 73 Talk 08:56, Nov 28, 2004 (UTC)
  • Oppose, I think it's good work, but I agree with the cropping comment above, also the light reflections on the board are somewhat distracting. Not sure if that is fixable. -- [[User:Solitude|Solitude\talk]] 18:55, Nov 28, 2004 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Maybe the Monopoly (game) photo was lucky to get through (especially without a Scotty dog), but this doesn't have quite the same pizzaz (minor point: a drop shaddow might work better than the halo shaddow). Its a good illustration for the article though. -give me money- Solipsist 18:58, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    • Also I didn't originally notice that there is a strong blue colour cast on this photo. -- Solipsist 23:18, 5 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Shaky support -- I think this is close to the Monopoly image's quality, though I agree that a different shadow would be preferable. I don't mind the cropping at all -- it gives the impression, I think, that the game is truly in progress...no cropping would look oddly formal, I think. Jwrosenzweig 21:17, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Comment. Should this be under GFDL or Fair Use (what's the rule for taking pictures of copyrighted things?) Enochlau 20:36, 5 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    • Potentially tricky. The board design here would be copyright (as would Monopoly), but I doubt this would count as a copyright infringement due to the lack of detail in reproducing the board. It is clearer, for a photograph of a copyrighted US sculpture or a copyrighted painting. Its possible that the inclusion of parts of board's surface and playing cards would mean that the image as a whole would have to be licensed under Fair Use, I'm not sure. -- Solipsist 23:14, 5 Dec 2004 (UTC)
