File:BL-creature-Crypt Wight.jpg[edit]

BL-creature-Crypt Wight.jpg

High resolution, great lighting with perfect highlights/contrast. Background neither busy nor boring. It would be great to have a Blades image featured, and this gets almost the most possible out of a Blades screenshot.

  • Support: As nominator. -Dcsg (talk) 02:12, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Fine work gentleman --Lilybit (talk) 20:55, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: For a blades image, it is pretty good. Personally, i feel like blades shots are held back by being primarily on Mobile, but once PC comes out, we will get betters shots.Zebendal (talk) 21:40, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Neutral: The cave background blends in with the wight's own colors and makes it hard to distinguish, would be better if it was retaken in an Ayleid ruin near blue light The Rim of the Sky (talk) 01:17, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Nice Blades image, good example of what a creature image should be. Imperialbattlespire (talk) 23:27, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Four support, one neutral, zero oppose. —⁠Legoless (talk) 09:10, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

File:ON-place-Broken Coast Dolmen.jpg[edit]

ON-place-Broken Coast Dolmen.jpg

A wonderful composition with a stunning arrangement of color and value. The sun shining behind the chains is the epicenter of the image, drawing attention to the anchor. The landscape around the dolmen accents the main focus without drawing too much away from it, and adds to the beauty of the scene.

  • Support: As nominator. -MolagBallet (talk) 18:31, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: I am biased but I am proud of this shot The Rim of the Sky (talk) 01:22, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Woah... per nom, this is a really beautiful image. --Oriwa Talk 01:31, 14 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Completely agree with the nominator. Composition, lighting, color, atmosphere, mood -- totally beautiful. — Wolfborn(Howl) 03:00, 14 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: I thought I already supported this, but this photo has a nice theme to it, with light shining on the dark site that is the dark anchor.Zebendal (talk) 23:17, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Unanimous support. -MolagBallet (talk) 22:45, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

File:ON-pet-Grisly Banekin Mummy.jpg[edit]

ON-pet-Grisly Banekin Mummy.jpg

Look at this Lad. He takes up most of the screen real estate, you can see the little details in his little linen wrappings, and the way his little hands are folded... you can tell he's scheming.

  • Support: As nominator. -MolagBallet (talk) 00:52, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Neutral: Really great angle but the lighting is very off, I think it's just an issue with all pictures taken in the Grand Psijic Villa since the 24/7 orange Artaeum sky doesn't work well on everything The Rim of the Sky (talk) 01:10, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Neutral: Its too blurry and the lighting is off. I recommend putting a Clockwork Illumanator near it to give it better lighting.Zebendal (talk) 02:55, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose: Per arguments given in the neutrals. -Damon talkedits 15:58, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose: Lighting is off, and is too blurry. Zebendal (talk) 09:53, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
Consensus: No consensus. (1 support, 2 neutral, 2 oppose) -MolagBallet (talk) 22:43, 17 March 2021 (UTC)



Just thought it showcased a dark spirit in neat supernatural lighting which is further made cool with the lightning striking behind her. Who doesn't want a Namiran goth gf?

  • Support: As nominator.Zebendal (talk) 01:16, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: love her energy!! 🤩🤩 The Rim of the Sky (talk) 01:22, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Really great image with a delightful atmosphere. -Dcsg (talk) 06:26, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per above, very good lighting and atmosphere. --Oriwa Talk 01:31, 14 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: It looks eerie and cool.--Talyyn (talk) 10:38, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Unanimous —⁠Legoless (talk) 21:28, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

File:BM-creature-Ettiene of Glenmoril Wyrd.jpg[edit]

BM-creature-Ettiene of Glenmoril Wyrd.jpg

A clear new image of this rare Bloodmoon creature. A vast improvement over what was there originally, and framed very well in my opinion.

  • Support: As nominator. —⁠Legoless (talk) 00:42, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Big improvement over the older shot.Zebendal (talk) 07:27, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Krr- AWWGH! Nevermore! -- SarthesArai Talk 12:35, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: A very crisp, clear shot. The subject is well-framed, takes up plenty of space, and stands out nicely against the white snow. --Oriwa Talk 04:29, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: The subject takes up most of the shot and stands out clearly against the background. -MolagBallet (talk) 02:04, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Unanimous support. Robin Hood(talk) 04:55, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

File:ON-npc-Skooma Cat 02.jpg[edit]

ON-npc-Skooma Cat 02.jpg

This is a shot taken of Sheogorath in his Skooma Cat form. Reasons to nominate this.

  • Cats are superior to humans
  • Sheogorath, but in cat form
  • Is the best floofs you can get
  • Look at his face, you shall give him all the cheese and skooma

Please support the one and only true daedric prince, or skoomer floofs will use your entrails as a jump rope. That is all. :P

  • Support: As nominator.Zebendal (talk) 03:19, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Majestic. - Dcsg (talk) 05:34, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Support: Iconic image at this point. Imperialbattlespire (talk) 21:01, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Looks neat and as Imperialbattlespire said, now iconic.--Talyyn (talk) 21:36, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: The subject is nicely centered and the lighting and pose are great. Absolutely iconic. --Oriwa Talk 04:29, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: OK I will make an exception because he looks very polite The Rim of the Sky (talk) 01:17, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Unanimous support. Robin Hood(talk) 04:55, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

File:SR-quest-A Blade in the Dark.jpg[edit]

SR-quest-A Blade in the Dark.jpg

I saw this one on our social media and thought it looked very cool. The colours are great, it really captures the resurrection of a dragon in a stunning way.

  • Support: As nominator. —⁠Legoless (talk) 09:38, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Fantastic shot in every way, loving the angles and the progress through the dragon resurrection animation this was taken at, don't often get to see it since it happens so fast. The Rim of the Sky (talk) 22:48, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per above. -Damon talkedits 15:58, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: As per comments above. This shot is pure awesome. -- Wolfborn (Howl) 17:57, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Surprised it wasn't already featured, this is a good shot.Zebendal (talk) 06:55, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Really great shot of a stunning scene! Both dragons are framed well and Sahloknir is captured at just the right point in his resurrection. --Oriwa Talk 04:29, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Unanimous support. Robin Hood(talk) 04:55, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

File:ON-quest-Cultural Conciliation 08.jpg[edit]

ON-quest-Cultural Conciliation 08.jpg

A great action shot showing off both the quest objective and the landscape of Western Skyrim. The framing and colouring on this image is excellent.

  • Support: As nominator. —⁠Legoless (talk) 09:18, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: An excellent composition! MolagBallet (talk) 15:49, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Definitely a good image for such a simple scene. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 16:06, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose: Not a whole lot going on and not a fan of the various low-poly textures and containers (sack of grain etc.) in the foreground. Neat scene tho. The Rim of the Sky (talk) 22:48, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose: It's an okay image, but I'm more or less on the same feeling as Rim of the Sky here. And it's kinda hard to tell clearly what exactly the guy in the scene is doing so it's not a very clear image to look at in that regard. -Damon talkedits 15:58, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
Consensus: Neutral. Insufficient support (3 support, 2 oppose). Robin Hood(talk) 04:55, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

File:ON-quest-City Under Siege 02.jpg[edit]

ON-quest-City Under Siege 02.jpg
  • Support: as nominator: Pretty great shot, cinematic, and colors work well and the elements all over the place from the conflict. ye its good. Zebendal (talk) 20:41, 4 April 2020 (GMT)
  • Neutral: This is a really hot image! I agree that it looks very cinematic, almost like a promotional shot. The reason I am Neutral on this though is that in the format the image is going to be viewed the most, a thumbnail on the main page, there's a little bit of a lack of clarity in what all the image is depicting. This is no fault to the image itself; it's simply due to the nature of the subject itself being this fiery, smoke filled scene. I certainly can't oppose the image for this reason alone, but I also haven't been able to move all the way to a support either. Forfeit (talk) 23:09, 27 April 2020 (GMT)
  • Support: Fire is pretty, and gets my support. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 16:06, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Great image, do wish we can sort out what's going on with the file name. The Rim of the Sky (talk) 22:48, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per above -Damon talkedits 15:58, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Very nice caption. Tib (talk) 17:31, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Overall support (5 support, 1 neutral). Robin Hood(talk) 04:55, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

File:SR-npc-Ulfric Stormcloak 06.jpg[edit]

SR-npc-Ulfric Stormcloak 06.jpg

I can't say I'm much of a fan of the subject, but I've always been a fan of this image. I thought this was nominated before at some point, but it doesn't seem that way. Since I'm in town for a second, I'll throw this into the mix before I head out! The background is really pretty which helps to make it a good thumbnail. However, once you look at it at full size, the expression on Ulfric's face is what sells this for me. I think it captures the thoughts and feelings of the character at this moment in time perfectly. You can also see a little surprise in the background once you look at the full size image too.

  • Support: As nominator. Forfeit (talk) 01:11, 1 April 2020 (GMT)
  • Support: It nicely captures Ulfric's expression after he realizes how everything he did was futile in the grand scheme of things. I might even feel a bit of sympathy for him. --Ilaro (talk) 19:20, 1 April 2020 (GMT)
  • Support: The expression works well and colour scheme is nice. I don't recall how long its been since we had a Skyrim FI.--Talyyn (talk) 04:02, 5 April 2020 (GMT)
  • Neutral: Boring to me. Not bad enough to oppose, though. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 16:06, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Comment: He's just standing there, menacingly! The Rim of the Sky (talk) 22:48, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per above -Damon talkedits 15:58, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Per above. Great background and Ulfric's expression definitely adds a lot to it. --Oriwa Talk 04:29, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Overall support (5 support, 1 neutral). Robin Hood(talk) 04:55, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

File:ON-quest-The Cursed Skull.jpg[edit]

ON-quest-The Cursed Skull.jpg

This is a beautiful shot. The golden skull is the focus here, contrasting against the gray stone and illuminated by the stunning ray of light filtering from the sky above. The image is high res; you can see all the details in the xanmeer's carvings. The flesh guardian in the background gives the viewer a sense of danger; the golden object on the pedestal is either being guarded by that thing, or the creature happens to be blocking the way of anyone who seeks the skull. Either way, the flesh colossus gives the viewer the sense that this place is dangerous, and whoever is going to retrieve that wonderfully illuminated artifact is going to have one heck of an adventure... which perfectly illustrates what Murkmire is about: a swashbuckling adventure!
Bottom line is, this image is beautiful and tells a story.

  • Support: As nominator. --MolagBallet (talk) 19:08, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Indiana Jones vibes. I like the beam of light. —⁠Legoless (talk) 21:10, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Simple, yet able to really show off the ambiance. = Thuraya Salaris (talk) 22:37, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Really good timing and lighting, also like how out of context it looks like the colossus guardian just opened the door to find you with the skull. The Rim of the Sky (talk) 22:48, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: The eeriness really captures just how dark the Murkmire questline as a whole gets. Also gotta agree about the Raiders thing. Schiffy(Talk) 23:28, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Very atmospheric.--Talyyn (talk) 01:36, 29 July 2020 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Unanimous —⁠Legoless (talk) 00:30, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

File:ON-creature-Sand Serpent.jpg[edit]

ON-creature-Sand Serpent.jpg

A really excellent shot of this enemy. Hard to capture ESO enemies at this level of detail.

  • Support: As nominator. —⁠Legoless (talk) 18:45, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: The subject is nicely centered, the colors contrast in a way that makes the subject easy to see and the whole composition pleasing to look at, and the level of detail is top-notch. My only criticism would be that the subject doesn't take up more space, but 1) the contrast and how centered the subject is makes up for that, and 2) It's a snake, it's not like some Chungus Bristleback where you can get the entire creature to take up most of the screen. -MolagBallet (talk) 22:53, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Looks fantastic. Amazing lighting. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 16:06, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Unfortunately a lot of the ON images I've seen don't even come close to this quality. This is very well done given the difficulties the online restrictions provide when attempting to capture an image. - Thuraya Salaris (talk) 22:37, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: Great background and pose on the snake. Not a fan of using base game eso images in 2020 due to asset re-use and outdated textures but this one is alright. The Rim of the Sky (talk) 22:48, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
Consensus: Support. Unanimous —⁠Legoless (talk) 00:30, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
