Grand Marais Light in 1986
Grand Marais Light in 2013

On my recent trip up the North Shore of Lake Superior, one of my goals was to photograph this lighthouse. The existing photo on this article is artistic and charming, and I quite like it for what it is, but it does not depict the subject of this article with much clarity. So, I walked all the way out to the end of a long breakwater, set my camera on a tripod, and waited a rather long time for an opportunity to shoot this subject with no tourists climbing on it. (It was a popular day for that.) I uploaded my best image, which was carefully composed and shows the lighthouse clearly in good light. About a minute after adding it to the article, I get reverted by TWINKLE, it appears, with "no reason for the change." Really? No reason that can be seen?

  • I think the original image is far superior for both depicting the light, and of course for its artistic side. I appreciate your version, but it doesn't show the location in the channel as a whole, and should not supercede the original. I will add, however, that if this article becomes expanded, I would definitely include your images in the later text - it's a valid secondary image, but not as a primary image.

  • When you like your photo better than someone else's, unless the old one really sucked, it's polite to discuss the change before throwing someone else's photo away. As ESL points out, there are many attributes of the old photograph. Indeed, your photo shows more detail of the structure. Note that I had nothing to do with either taking the old, scenic photo or adding it to the article. Toddst1 (talk) 12:24, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
