Vanishing Pictures[edit]

Many pictures used in this article have been deleted from wikimedia commons due to concerns about Icelandic copyright classing photographs depicting architecture, monuments, statues, etc as derivative works. No exception is offered to protect this kind of use of images containing statues and monuments.

On a personal note, several photos I personally took and uploaded of Icelandic landmarks have been deleted. It seems frankly nonsensical to restrict photographic depiction of public monuments which totally dominate the skyline of the capital city. I'm not sure what, if anything, can be done about this but it is frustrating to say the least. If anyone has any ideas other than getting Icelanders to contact their elected representatives?

Finally the notice sent to me when my images were tagged for deletion invited me to join a discussion and potentially refute the arguments for their deletion, however, following the link the discussion has been closed since long before my images were added and the deletion was immediate with no opportunity provided for debate before or even after deletion.

(ps: If anyone Icelandic is reading this please do write to your representatives, this copyright is daft!)

Amazing! So some of the images I took in August 2014 are banned by Icelandic copyright law? Not friendly to tourists.--DThomsen8 (talk) 18:23, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
You can publish the images as fair use but you can not publish them for profit. Thus the images can not be hosted on commons but they can be hosted within each wikipedia under fair use licenses. --Stalfur (talk) 14:06, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Some information to add someplace in the article.[edit]

Hallgrimskirkja, the Church of Hallgrimur, is a national monument, dedicated to the most renowned religious poet of Iceland, Hallgrímur Pétursson. The parish is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Iceland. Hallgrimskirkja towers over the center of Reykjavik, and its 73-meter high tower provides a wonderful view over the entire city. Building work started in 1945, and the church was finally consecrated on October 26, 1986. The state architect, Guðjónn Samúelsson (1887-1950) designed the church. He drew richly on Icelandic traditions and materials. The concert organ was inaugurated in 1992. It was constructed by Johannes Klais Orgelbau in Bonn, Germany. Friends of the Arts of Hallgrimskirkja was founded in 1982 and is the organizer of artistic events in the church. A festival of sacred art is held every second year and the International Organ Summer takes place every year.

Shape of Church[edit]

Somebody might want to add, that the shape of the church is literally a bell curve or a normal distribution. Although maybe not expressed to be a such, it is strikingly obvious. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.186.205.118 (talk) 19:55, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
