Reason
Important cultural building, symbol of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and example of design by Santiago Calatrava. Good EV given eye level frontal perspective, good light-shadow and sky conditions, human scale provided without distracting from the architecture of the building.

  • Weak Oppose Focus issues, specifically the staircase on the left and the tip of the point at the top. Also to a lesser degree the man on the right.  Nezzadar [SPEAK]  08:09, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
  • I thought lack of sharpness beyond the 1000px zoom cannot be an exclusive criteria. Otherwise FPC would need to be amended to mandate higher minimum resolution, and consequently delist many current FPs, such as Bangkok skytrain sunset.jpg, Ozyptila praticola - front (aka).jpg, Brachypelma edit.jpg, Koala climbing tree.jpg, Treasury of Athens at Delphi.jpg, and more. Sharpness of "man on the right" seems irrelevant. Elekhh (talk) 11:30, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

  • Oppose Lighting needs to be absolutely right for a structure like this. It should reveal architectural features rather than cast shadows from elevated parts that obscure them or make them appear a different shape. There's also a fairly obvious stitching error around the mid-point. High resolution makes up some ground lost with lack of sharpness and the sky is good, but doesn't mitigate these main problems. --mikaultalk 18:37, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
    • When you say fairly obvious what stitching error are you refering to? I cannot see a stiching error myself... Sorry to ask but I'm trying to learn about these sorts of things... Gazhiley (talk) 13:45, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose The subject is good, the photo doesn't do it justice.--Silversmith Hewwo 07:45, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
