  • Support. Very good photograph. No objections. - Darwinek (talk) 19:42, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment It is very nice but I'd like to suggest a heresy: a tighter crop. As the subject is the point of the shot and the EV of detail at the extremities of the frame negligible, I don't think we'd be losing much and the image would be loads more dynamic. --mikaultalk 21:01, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
    • Cropped top and bottom a bit. Kept the sides due to the EV of the arcade. Better? Durova310 23:05, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
      • Much! --mikaultalk 00:05, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
