  • Support pretty low EV in my opinion, but support for the same reason listed above. What else could we ask for to show taxis in Hong Kong? Mattximus (talk)

  • Support albeit low EV. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 13:26, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Maybe my conception of EV is skewed, but after reading the article, I think this has great EV. Can't really get more interesting visually, either. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 23:50, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
I should add that maybe the caption should specify that these are high-fare taxis, as it seems a color-coding is enforced. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 23:52, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Agree about the EV. I've been wondering how you can ask "What else could we ask for to show taxis in Hong Kong?" and yet say this has low EV. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 13:58, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
Consider an extreme example. What if we have the *perfect* photograph of the third street light from my house. It is technically everything we could ask to show the third street light from my house. But does it have EV? I guess you would argue that any photograph that has a wiki page therefore has potential EV, regardless of the topic? Does a picture of taxis in the 27th largest city in the world merit being featured? I agree, and support, but admit that it is low EV. Mattximus (talk) 17:10, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
  • If we had an article on the third streetlamp from your house (if, say, it were as famous as the Centennial Light) then there would be serious EV. In an article on street lamps it would have good EV as well. Here we have an article on taxis in Hong Kong. These are taxis in Hong Kong, and thus there is still good EV attached to this. That the individual taxis are not notable does not mean that there is no EV (just like how the PS2 shown in File:PS2-Versions.jpg or the soursop shown in File:Soursop, Annona muricata.jpg are not individually notable, yet still have EV as representative of a class). — Crisco 1492 (talk) 22:26, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
