Hadrian Arch, Jordan[edit]

Original – The Arch of Hadrian in Jerash, Jordan, erected to honor the visit of Roman Emperor Hadrian to the city in the winter of 129–130. The city was known to Romans as Gerasa.

Reason
I'm giving a try despite some scaffolding, which is rather compensated by huge resolution. This is also perhaps the finest Hadrian Arch out of three known, eclipsing even that in Italy.

  • Support - Per Nom. Excellent resolution and quality. The scaffolding seems to indicate the size of the entrance. Nikhil (talk) 02:36, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment I find the framing somewhat unbalanced, with too much sky on the top. On the other hand File:Hadrian Arc Pan-2.jpg I find just slightly too tight. Perhaps would be worth trying a square crop. --ELEKHHT 03:00, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose - Per Elekhh and the non-vertical verticals. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 09:12, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
How's that? It's hard to tell from photos on the Internet which bits of the arch are plumb and which are not, so I rotated just a little to level the foundation. The verticals are more vertical and the steps are flat, but the top of the structure is slated (as I suspect is the real thing). Of course, the whole thing may have subsided, but I couldn't find any reference that says so. Also square cropped, as suggested. nagualdesign (talk) 03:26, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
