Cerro de la Silla[edit]

2. Cerro de la Silla modified
a Wikipedia:Featured picture

This is a picture of one of the dominating features of the landscape on Monterrey, Mexico, and it is fairly well known throughout the country. I think it's a great picture, but I've never nominated a picture for featured status before. I took the photograph, and it is used on Cerro de la Silla. --Spangineer 23:55, Jan 11, 2005 (UTC)

Update – For those who have voted to oppose for reasons of too much sky or the ugly building on the right, I have cropped the top and bottom of the picture, to see if your concerns are met. Those who liked the old version, please let me know if the new version is acceptable. And if you have any more suggestions, let me know. --Spangineer 22:04, Jan 18, 2005 (UTC)

  • Dominating indeed. Support. Mgm|(talk) 09:57, Jan 12, 2005 (UTC)
New version is still fine with me. Support that one too. Mgm|(talk) 08:44, Jan 24, 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose for the moment - I like the picture, it's sharp and striking, but I think I'd like it more if some of the sky was cropped away, so the picture consists of three more equal parts (ie ground, mountain, sky). Also a bit of a shame about the rather ugly building on the right. Worldtraveller 17:55, 13 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • I like the modified version a whole lot better and support its nomination. Worldtraveller 10:51, 20 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I've a soft spot for mountains and this is an interesting one. Looks like a very good angle to get the mountain's profile, but the air quality is a litle too hazy (although probably very good for Mexico). - Solipsist 21:26, 13 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Interesting subject, nice shot, good quality. - Jpo 23:59, Jan 13, 2005 (UTC)
  • Agree with Worldtraveller. That building on the right is very ugly. Oppose. Enochlau 23:46, 14 Jan 2005 (UTC)
    • When I meant building on the right, I was actually talking about the brown grilly thing, which is still in the modified version of the picture. However, the modified version is far more acceptable, so I would like to change my previous oppose to a neutral vote. Enochlau 23:20, 18 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Neutral. The picture is good but I think there are some more impressive mountain images on here. Lots of vegetation on the slopes hide the underlying rock formations which would have changed my vote to support if they were revealed. More sunlight would have helped. An excellent picture for an article but not quite FAC given all the mountains images I've seen and taken.RedWolf 05:24, Jan 16, 2005 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I really like the photo of the mountain, but think the foreground is really distracting. Consider cropping away some of the town (esp the ugly building on the right)? I took a look at what the might look like in MSPaint and it seems pretty okay. But nice picture in general. Part of me almost wants to support, but not yet. -SocratesJedi | Talk 19:32, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)
    • This FPC has caused me to think about it a lot more. I really like this picture, but I think the modified version is even more impressive and good, but I've decided to give full support to both pictures with extra support to the modified version. It's a nice picture that really captures something impressive. I encourage others to vote for it's elevation too. -SocratesJedi | Talk 22:39, 18 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Either, but personnaly I rather the original. --Fir0002 00:12, 25 Jan 2005 (UTC)
