  • Support as nominator --Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:28, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Support, already rated as high level of quality at Wikimedia Commons, high encyclopedic value, high educational value, good usage on the project. — Cirt (talk) 20:10, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Support--Tomcat (7) 11:10, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose Modern place, easy to rephotograph, therefore the extremely overcast/cloudy day isn't ideal, we can do better. — raekyt 13:33, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
I agree with you. It's a shame, but the lighting is so flat and dull, for me it really detracts. 86.146.106.216 (talk) 18:39, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Conditional Support Per Raeky. I don't care for the cloudy sky, but in the event of a clear sky picture coming available, I suggest a D&R. Dusty777 17:45, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose This is useful image which was competently executed. However, the flat lighting unfortunately means that it doesn't have a strong visual impact. Nick-D (talk) 10:42, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose in its current form per raeky and Nick-D. Samsara (FA  FP) 12:49, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Support If this weather is typical for the location then I see no reason to vote against this. A sunny day would be visually nicer but that doesn't make the photo more encyclopedic or educational. --Pine 20:45, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Not Promoted --Julia\talk 16:11, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Even counting Dusty's ambiguously conditional support, this nomination does not reach a 2/3 majority, although it's close. Please feel free to renominate if this outcome is unsatisfactory. Julia\talk 16:11, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
  • 6:3 is a 2/3 majority... Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:37, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
    • I made a mistake. My apologies. Julia\talk 20:10, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
