Morning fog in East Frisia[edit]

Original - Morning fog in East Frisia, Germany.
Flat landscapes can be a challenge to shoot in a visually engaging manner, and this example of early morning in the very flat German coastal district of East Frisia is a particularly good example. Newly featured on the German Wikipedia.

  • Strong Oppose I would give it a Supreme Support on Commons, but this is Wikipedia, and the main purpose of FPs on WP is for them to be highly encyclopedic. This image is only extremely well done, but has no real EV, that's why i think it would be a lot better as a FP at Commons. diego_pmc (talk) 08:10, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
    • How does it fail EV at the article where it appears? It replaced a similar landscape of inferior quality, and both are accurate depictions of the countryside in coastal northern Germany. DurovaCharge! 09:02, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
      • The image first of all is artistically fascinating. It isn't EV because the article it's in is about a region - a region which cannot be clearly seen due to the fog. The image would rather have higher EV in Fog article, even so I think this is more FP on Commons than on Wikipedia. diego_pmc (talk) 11:42, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
        • Added to two more articles. DurovaCharge! 18:47, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Support Very beautiful, and does a good job of illustrating what East Frisia looks like. Clegs (talk) 15:26, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Support High quality image describes excellently how East Frisia looks like. Pie is good (Apple is the best) 16:30, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Support As above. Shoemaker's Holiday (talk) 00:25, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment. That grass is a mess. I can't work out what exactly is wrong with it (artifacting?), so neutral for now. Mostlyharmless (talk) 00:41, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. Having never been to East Frisia, I'm assuming this has a lot of EV from prior comments. nice picture too. Intothewoods29 (talk) 01:45, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose per Diego PMC: beautiful picture, but not particularly educational. --Slashme (talk) 10:26, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Info. First of all: Thanks for nominating this picture. I think, that there is a usage for this pic. In the German article about East-Frisia it is placed in the climate part. At the moment this part is missing in the English article. This might be changed by s.o. Greetings Matthias Süßen (talk) 10:46, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. Stunning image, clear, good example of morning fog. ~AH1(TCU) 22:10, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. I think the way it's used in these articles demonstrates sufficient encyclopedic value, and it's a great composition.--ragesoss (talk) 14:47, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
