  • Weak Oppose Fine picture, but I can't help but feel it's a little bit too close to the subject and as such not showing enough of the reservoir... Would be better taken from further back to show more... Plus the lump in the foreground is very distracting and prominent, hiding part of the reservoir from view... gazhiley 15:11, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
    The "lump" in the foreground is intentional for aesthetic reasons; without it, the reservoir would just be a wide swath of water at the bottom and there would be a less of a draw toward the center. -- King of ♠ 22:53, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose per gazhiley's comment of not showing enough of the reservoir. I cannot comment on the lump without having been there and seeing how the picture would look without it. As a viewer, I takes too much attention away from the lake.--WingtipvorteX PTT 20:06, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose Yes, it is fine, also a good view of Hetch Hetchy but much of the reservoir is not viewed well. Mediran talk 01:38, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
