  • Oppose. Yeah, it's good for its age, but it's not good compared to what is available today. This same show was being offered until very recently, so I don't really see why we should promote something that is comparatively low quality. J Milburn (talk) 11:41, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
    • comment the Marineland was shut in 1987, I wouldnt exactly call 24 years ago very recent, digital photography wasnt exactly prolific in 87 in fact first consumer cameras werent on the market until 88. Gnangarra 05:22, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
      • Apologies. Neutral for now then. J Milburn (talk) 15:36, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
  • support good quality for its age, historical value per my above cmt Gnangarra 05:22, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose Unless these dolphins are no longer kept in captivity. The image may be somewhat dated, but the subject is most likely not, making a modern photo possible and desirable. Jujutacular talk 17:50, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
