  • Oppose. As per previous opposes in the last nomination, the HDR effects (haloes, and muddy skies) don't look good. Ðiliff «» (Talk) 08:25, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose per prior FPC and Diliff above. The HDR side-effects make this image particularly unattractive in thumbnail format (halos around the buildings). They aren't as pronounced at 100%, but there, you have the blown out/poorly recovered highlights of the streetlights and headlights, as well as the building signage (here and here as just a couple examples). The five second exposure used here provides some short headlight streaks, but a lot of stopped cars; I think all streaks or all stopped cars would provide a better image, and the former would be keeping with the theme of depicting the city's architecture (though the ships might look odd in that case, and the highlights would probably be even more blown out). Moving to the architecture, I'd rather see this image shot with a low-distortion lens, or possibly have the distortion present corrected: it's markedly visible in the lower right hand corner. Finally, I'm not a big fan of the composition. If the focus is supposed to be a cityscape or skyline, a full half of the image is taken up by dark, wispy clouds that don't do much for the image. I'd suggest cropping, but not without addressing the other problems. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 09:37, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
