Reason:
Another interesting view, this time from above, showing all five segments of the bridge. -- MrPanyGoff
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This one gives a view of the surface (top) of the bridge. I think this also gives a better view of the structure of the bridge, as well as the immediate surroundings.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The flip folder obscures too much of the right hand placement. Also, it looks like his right hand fingers are slid onto the wrong valves, though this is hard to tell for sure because of the flip folder.

Nominated by:
MrPanyGoff on 2012-03-04 11:48 (UTC)

Reason:
The feet are not visible here but the other things are probably best presented that's why the photo is used in many articles. The Location is approximate but I think precised enough for its purpose. -- MrPanyGoff
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think that the out of focus foreground obstruction at knee-level, the tail that is obstructed by vegetation, and the shadows on the head and neck detract from the value of this image. I'm not so concerned about the feet. They are not often visible in the field and are not commonly a distinguishing or notable feature. --Walter Siegmund (talk) 13:58, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Nominated by:
Myrabella (talk) on 2012-03-04 08:42 (UTC)
Scope:
Théâtre de la Renaissance, Paris (exterior)
Reason:
The least obstructed available view of this teater in Paris, classé Monument Historique. Quality image. -- Myrabella (talk)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Considering the free front space, the detail and the light, this is probably the best view in the category however it is very important the idea of the whole building as well as the urban situation. That's why this photo here is also good competitor because it presents the whole volume, of course it needs 20% crop from the right side. ;) --MrPanyGoff 10:46, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
  • I understand your point of view. However, I propose this image because this theater can be said an exemple of the (fr) eclectic style in fashion during the Second Empire and the Third Republic in France, which can be better seen in a closer view. The architect, Charles de Lalande, was a specialist of this kind of building and style (see for example this ref. in French). --Myrabella (talk) 13:39, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Well, probably this should be the VI in the specified scope. I just want to throw out a hint about scopes as «French Eclecticism of 19th century» or «Second Empire Architecture» that fall under this section.--MrPanyGoff 07:20, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Both have minor compositional flaws, e.g., the roadbed is centered vertically and the left end is not visible. A higher, or lower, camera location may have been more interesting. This image shows 6.5 spans; the other, a bit more. However, both "illustrate its subject well" (resolution, illumination and exposure), I think. I choose this one because of the drama conveyed by the ripples in the river and the recession of the bridge into the distance. Also, this one shows more of the east approach thereby providing a bit more context for the structure, and it lacks the large foreground shadow in the lower left. Finally, it works better as a thumbnail, I think. --Walter Siegmund (talk) 17:12, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I have two concerns, one technical, one of value. The technical concern is of two minor artifacts near the top middle (by themselves, these would not prevent a VI, I think) and a large section of glare or reflection above the building on the left. The value concern is whether these high-rises -- spectacular, to be sure, are typical of 1st Avenue. en:First Avenue (Manhattan) says it passes through "mostly residential neighborhoods". cmadler (talk) 13:53, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Reason:
Best representative image, I think. According to en:First Avenue (Manhattan), "First Avenue passes through a variety of mostly residential neighborhoods." -- cmadler (talk)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Since the Avenues are very long, I suggest the logical separation „North” and „South” as the streets in Manhattan are defined as „west” and „east”. The image you suggest, I think, is with no sure location. To be a competitor it has to be from a north side. It seems to me that you put an accidental camera location somewhere on the 1st Avenue. This alone throw off the present candidate. Secondly, what is written in the articles in the wikipedia is not a valid ground of opposition since it is disputable. We should supply the best photos of the area and that's all. I think the photos are more reliable source of information than an article though this article don't defines if the residential buildings alongside the avenue are high-rises or not. It speaks generally about the area in wider meaning. There are also residential high-rises. The other photo clearly shows not just three or four attractive skyscrapers but considerable part of the avenue in the Upper East Side with almost 50% density of high-rises. I think that the other photograph is very informative about the North part of this avenue.--MrPanyGoff 14:25, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think that your photograph is taken in East Village or Lower East Side which is „First Avenue South”. Actually, the article mostly alludes to exactly this part of Manhattan. Your image is a good candidate for the scope First Avenue South, Manhattan. Another possible scope is „First Avenue Center” where the United Nations skyscraper rules.--MrPanyGoff 14:37, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
    • Sorry, perhaps I misunderstood the scope you used. Is it common to designate sections of Manhattan avenues as "North" or "South", and if so, what street forms the dividing line? A quick Google search turns up no support for such a designation, but if that is a suitable designation, the scopes can be so named and each image moved to a normal candidacy. cmadler (talk) 14:56, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
      • The scope is not required to be an official name. We should provide useful searchable stuff. The word „North“ here has the same function as „exterior“, „interior“, „general view“ which we add to the buildings. It is a clarifying fragment whose purpose is to clarify and narrow the otherwise broad scope. So, no matter how many people use the expression, the same as „Livorno Cathedral, exterior“. You know, nobody use the last one but this is our official layout for scope names. Would you accept it easier if the scope is „First Avenue, Manhattan (north)“? --MrPanyGoff 08:10, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
        • The difference is that terms like "interior" and "exterior" are (usually) unambiguous. In this case, where is the line between "north" and "south"? The other photo says it's taken from the Roosevelt Island bridge, which is between 59th and 60th Streets; 1st Avenue runs from 1st Street to 126th Street, so by a simple split of 1st Avenue, anything below about 63rd Street -- including both these photos -- is in the southern half. Looking at the entire island, the midpoint is at least that far north, and probably farther. cmadler (talk) 13:04, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
          • The part between 42nd and 59th street is widely known as central Manhattan, I think. Below 42nd street we can talk about south and above 60 about north.--MrPanyGoff 06:18, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

  • On the other hand, the right hand position here is correct (fingers curved, allowing him to press straight down onto each valve with the fingertips, cleanly onto each valve), while it's sloppy on the other candidate (fingers mostly straight, contacting the valves at the distal interphalangeal joints, and also not lined up properly with the valves with the ring finger hitting the gap between the second and third vavle). cmadler (talk) 13:16, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
