  • Support. Good photo of an impressive landform. EV strongest in Petit Piton, then Tourism in Saint Lucia; others are in galleries or seem an afterthought. I think it could also contribute well to I've also added it to the flag of Saint Lucia article. --Avenue (talk) 01:50, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Weak Support It's a nice mountain-sea picture, but nothing special overall. Haljackey (talk) 05:40, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose Just seems really blurred to me, out of focus... Which is a shame as potentially this could be a great picture... The buildings in the bottom left really help with a sense of scale... Gazhiley (talk) 10:35, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
    • The camera I had with me then was a reasonably nice camera at the time, but today you get much better. The vista was absolutely amazing though. The four grey patches in front of the buildings are tennis courts. --JN466 17:57, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
      • Yeah I spotted those - what an awesome location for a tennis centre! I assume its a tennis centre as no-one has 4 tennis courts in their back garden! A good picture, but not a FP for me with the blur sorry... Gazhiley (talk) 01:15, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
        • It's actually part of a hotel. There are dozens of little bungalows sprinkled among the trees; further down is a beach and a pool (the houses you see are a lot further from the sea, and a lot higher up, than it appears in the picture; if you click on the geolocate link, you can see the place in google earth). Last time I was there, they used most of the tennis courts to store flower pots; I never saw anyone play. (It's a tad hot.) I understand your concern about the sharpness; I wish it was less fuzzy at full resolution myself. --JN466 01:48, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Weak support per Haljackey. The Utahraptor Talk 00:17, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose: Quality is lacking; for its resolution I would expect it to not be so fuzzy. Could do with a little more room at the top. Maedin\talk 16:21, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
