  • Oppose Hey I lived near there! It's a beautiful building but there has got to be a better angle. Mattximus (talk) 21:06, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose. Mattximus is right about the angle, it just looks odd. From the technical stand[pint, it is very nice, and a perfect day for a photo, but the image just doesn't do the building justice. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 22:24, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
derivative work with some correction, not for voting
  • oppose sorry, but this image is inclined and has a strong perspective distortion. This image File:Kingston - ON - Town hall1.jpg gives IMO a better impression of the building. The colour curve is too dark. I have tried to make some corrections. --– Wladyslaw (talk) 23:31, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
I agree that the original is too distorted, but for me "derivative work with some correction, not for voting" slightly overcorrects. Because there is no (or too little) vertical perspective, the building appears to get slightly fatter towards the top. 86.171.42.234 (talk) 11:07, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
I agree with you. This edit should only gave an idea how this image should be for example. With this basic raw material it is difficult to make a better result. By the way my edit took just one minute and I a didn't made a big effort. If I would make a picture of this position I would get a few steps back (not to be that close tho the building) and I would make several shots to stitch them together. This would avoid the hazard of that thinks you rightly criticize. --– Wladyslaw (talk) 22:01, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose- I would avoid this pic if I was writing an article on the building. Amandajm (talk) 02:10, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
