  • Still thinking about it I'm not sure what I think. It's awesome resolution, and I can't see any stitching errors, and everything that should be straight is straight. But does seem a little uninspired (apart from the big guy getting on his bike!). I find the trees a pity (per discussion [here|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Houston/Archive_10#Skyline].

  • Oppose A little too much foreground in this superbly detailed image. A neat angle on the city. Shroomydan (talk) 01:42, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Somebody should upload a crop just above the road level. That could fix the distraction issues. Nergaal (talk) 23:20, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
  • I personally disagree, cropping above the road line would remove the foundation of the image, ruining the composition. A better fix would be finding a better location to get a panorama of the skyline. I will work on that. Jujutacular talk 04:09, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
