  • oppose This is a stitched image so the high-resolution is to be expected. Indeed it is probably downsampled but I have no problem with that given that it is 20MP. Unfortunately the quality has deteriorated since the first upload. The second upload (apparently to fix stitching errors) has a significantly lower JPG quality and strong JPG artefacts are visible in the sky. In fact, even the first image would benefit from a higher JPG quality level to avoid gnats around high-contrast areas. The second upload involved a strong adjustment, presumably from this JPG, which is a no-no. This has just emphasised the JPG artefacts in the sky, which are visible even at normal screen resolution. This image could be rescued if the original photographer could upload a higher-quality JPG, along with the later adjustments that improve the levels. Colin°Talk 22:05, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
