British Museum Reading Room Panorama [edit]

British Museum Reading Room Panorama
Brighter Version

I think that this image is really admirable. It depicts one of the finest interior spaces available to the public in Great Britain. The photographer has captured the air of quiet, intellectual contemplation of the environment really well and in excellent detail. The image can be found on the British Museum Reading Room page and was taken by Diliff.

  • Support Another awesome interior shot by the Wiki panorama master. --Janke | Talk 08:59, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Support The small size on the right really doesn't do it justice (it's not going to end up like that on the front page, if it gets there, is it?). Other than that, lovely shot. --Fipe 09:51, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
    • I don't think it could ever be featured on the front page 500 pixels wide ;), but I adjusted the size and centred it for this page. Panoramas aren't really suited to the usual thumbnail size, and since this is the the FPC page, I don't see the problem with any FPC pics being around 400 px wide on the preview.

  • Weak oppose. Detail is remarkable, of course, but it'd be nice to get the window at the top of the dome in the photo. Going by this picture, that would probably distort the side walls at the edges of the image. But, of course, this picture distorts the benches in the center. It's a tradeoff. zafiroblue05 | Talk 03:55, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.png Support Either Version. Uploaded a brighter version. --Fir0002 www 09:33, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
    • My support is for the original only. IMO, the second version is definitely too light. --Janke | Talk 14:31, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
      • Agree. Once again I think the original is more accurate. Why do people always feel the need to make things look 'brighter'? I can see the point when detail is indistinguishable, but this is clearly not the situation... :) Diliff | (Talk) (Contribs) 14:05, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Support. I've been there, and this looks much better than I could ever get such an image. - Mgm|(talk) 22:21, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Support - Original only, the brighter version is not an improvement. - Hahnchen 01:38, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
You're right. No need to brighten. - Mgm|(talk) 11:24, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Excellent, support the original only. The brightened version lessens the impact of the rotunda ceiling.--Dakota ~ ° 18:49, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Original image is better than "brightened" one. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 20:37, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Support. The panoramic distortions give a slightly misleading impression of the shape of the room, but that's more than outweighed by the positive qualities of this picture. -- Solipsist 10:17, 7 March 2006 (UTC)
