  • Regretful Oppose I love the memorial, but the angle isn't that great (a head on view would be better), there is quite a bit of noise throughout the picture, and the flash lighting isn't as appealing as sunlight. Dusty777 16:11, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
  • This was considered before at Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/USMC War Memorial. Note the various other edits introduced during that process. Chick Bowen 17:00, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose, and suggest speedy close There seemed to be a strong consensus to not promote this image last time, and it still suffers from unfixable problems with composition (the base being cut off) and lighting. Nick-D (talk) 07:24, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
    • I wouldn't object to a speedy close, given that the image was pretty well discussed last time, including adjustments that could be made through editing. Having looked through the various images, I find most of them suffer from the sculpture's height, which causes an exaggerated perspective and a lot of sky. The best approach is probably this one, from further back, though that is obviously too small. I haven't been there since I was a small child and am basing this on the photographs, but I get the sense there's a bit of a rise on the other side of the grassy area they use for military reviews. A photo from up there, with a longer lens, would work pretty well. This is a much-visited site, so I'd think we could get a decent picture at some point. Chick Bowen 22:51, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
