  • Support good picture, one can even see the coat of arms clearly on the windows. Hafspajen (talk) 05:05, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Support Agree with Hafspajen - can even make out the shadowy figure of a person on a bike through the main doorway - and some union jack flags! Very good quality. Horizontals and Verticles seem perfect to me too. gazhiley 12:21, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. Good detail and composition, but there is some chromatic abberation visible around the pillars which should be fairly easy to remove. Ðiliff «» (Talk) 12:50, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Support (though I'd be even more happy if the noise in the shadows could be reduced a little; also, why F16?) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 13:52, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
    • He was shooting with a medium format camera. The larger the sensor, the smaller aperture required to achieve an equivalent depth of field (conversely, for the same reason, a camera phone has a huge depth of field). Also, the larger the sensor, the better it can handle diffraction at a given aperture. The sensor that Godot13 was using is 56x36mm (a full frame DSLR is only 36x24mm) and is probably not affected by diffraction at f/16. Ðiliff «» (Talk) 14:14, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
      • Oh, alright. Thanks for the info. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:22, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Support- can partially read the legend on the war memorial. Colour fringing as per Diliff's comment to the left and right (seems to be more noticeable on the left) Xanthomelanoussprog (talk) 14:10, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment - Thank you Hafspajen, gazhiley, Ðiliff, Crisco 1492, and Xanthomelanoussprog for your support. I have made the slight corrections noted above (CA, NR) and overwritten the current file.--Godot13 (talk) 18:35, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
