      • Yes, the tower is not perfect upright. (Does the word skew describes it better?)-- Bernd Untiedt 18:23, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)
        • Well, OK. I've notified the photographer. In case of pictures created by Wikipedians, better to give the creator a chance to address these objections. --MarkSweep 03:22, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose – not particularly striking, and non-notable as well (IMO). bdesham 03:46, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    Comment: I've seen someone else call a photo non-notable. Where does this policy come from? Most of the photos on Wikimedia would be non-notable wouldn't they? —Christiaan 18:12, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    I knew I worded that badly :-) In general, if a picture is striking, I vote in support without considering the notability. If the picture is not striking, however, I still look at the notability and I may vote in support if I consider the picture notable enough. For me, this picture is neither striking nor particularly notable.
    I don't think this represents a policy so much as my (and probably others') individual opinions. --bdesham 20:04, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)

  • I would support it if you would make this image more panorama-like by just cropping about 1/3 of the gras in the foreground. Andreas Tille 18:11, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • You're right, the perspective is not ideal. A similar picture [1] was a Featured Picture candidate over at the English Wikipedia recently but did not get supported largely for technical reasons (JPEG compression artifacts). I negotiated a hi-rez version with PDphoto.org, but got this shot instead. I could try to get in touch with them again to get a hi-rez version of the other shot which shows less of the grass and more of the sky. --MarkSweep 06:02, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)

    • Wha'??? Look at the trees. They are, on average, upright. Could it be that the meadow is naturally uneven? It seems pretty level to me in the right half of the image, rising gently toward the left. --MarkSweep 09:31, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose I'd go again to the same place about one hour earlier or whenever you meet the so called 'blue hour' and try again. Then the lights would not be so confusing as they are at this picture. It is not really bad but it is hard to parse what the image wants to show and thus not really fit for beeing included in a dictionary like WikiPedia. Andreas Tille 18:15, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)
