  • Support as nominator --Maedin\talk 20:56, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Support not quite the highest EV (the bridge is a little small) but a very nice picture indeed. Nergaal (talk) 23:18, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Support it is an excellent picture. Great composition. Although the bridge is small, it showcases the distinctive architecture of the neighbouring houses, which are also very important. Purpy Pupple (talk) 03:44, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Absolutely beautiful. Wackywace converse | contribs 14:13, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Support. Fabulous. Twilightchill t 21:33, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose fake sky. --Elekhh (talk) 01:50, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
    • I didn't notice the fake sky at first; but even so, a fake sky isn't really a good reason to oppose the picture. After all, lots of Featured Pictures have been retouched in some way. Indeed, the fake sky looks much better than the blown out actual original sky.Purpy Pupple (talk) 04:38, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
      • Whether it looks better is not the main issue. The problem is that manipulated photos may be misleading, especially when the edits are not disclosed on the image description page. One of our FP criteria (#8) specifically addresses this issue. --Avenue (talk) 13:25, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose, significant undocumented edits mean this image fails to meet FP criterion 8. --Avenue (talk) 13:25, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose original, I really don't think I can support the introduction of a fake sky. J Milburn (talk) 15:31, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Support I don't see how the fake sky can be misleading. --Muhammad(talk) 16:46, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I disagree that it isn't misleading. The subject isn't misrepresented exactly, but it's a poor photo. The sky doesn't match the reflection in the river, for example. And I'm ideologically opposed to any photos being used on Wikipedia that are so obviously falsified. I'd rather remove the that version from the article really. We can do better.

I withdraw my nomination . I was not aware of the "actual" original when I nominated this (and it was added to the page last night by an IP). I clearly read way too much into the creator's comment on the Commons nomination, interpreting his "definitely not HDR" as "definitely genuine". Tweaked to enhance features, is what I assumed, but not faux. Make whatever editorial decisions you want, idgaf. Maedin\talk 18:26, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
