London Eye panorama

London Eye panorama
It seems to me that this panorama falls short of brilliance, because of the mismatches where the composite images have been stitched together - this is particularly noticable where neighbouring capsules on the London Eye are visible, but also causes distortion to some of the buildings (Buckingham Palace is particularly affected). It's a nice image for illustrating the different ages of buildings in central London, but not, to my mind, "featured picture" standard. Perhaps splitting into a number of images would help? - MykReeve 23:44, 10 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Toronto skyline at night

Toronto skyline at night
Needs to be removed from FP because 1) it's too dark (I don't see enough detail) and 2) no copyright status information. - Bevo 21:37, 5 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • The copyrightholder uploaded it himself, so I don't see the problem. The image itself is far from brilliant though. ✏ Sverdrup 14:48, 6 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • Is the lack of brilliance enough to justify delisting? - Bevo 18:28, 8 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • I don't think it's a particularly good image at all. Fredrik (talk) 18:49, 8 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • I agree with removal -- it's not an awful picture, but nothing about it is remarkably breath-taking, brilliant, or informative. Jwrosenzweig 19:52, 10 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • I agree with the removal, not a bad picture, but not that useful. Lorax 01:48, Jun 14, 2004 (UTC)
  • Would work better against a dark background. Wikipedia's light background makes it hard to see details. Fg2 08:47, 24 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • agreed with the removal this is not a particuliar good pictures. : Chmouel 21:52, 10 Jul 2004 (UTC)
