  • Oppose A nice enough picture but it has been "resized for the web" down to just 0.7MP and 218KB. Colin°Talk 11:55, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose I'm not keen on the angle this has been taken at. I will admit I don't know enough about Kings College to know if all the buildings are connected, but the white building to the right obscures the majority of the building with spires; the aforementioned white building is partially obscured by trees, and the long building to the left is cut off. A further out shot, from an elevated position would provide a much better angle and thus show the buildings better. I'm sure I remember seeing the central building from an elevated position on a television program so I would like to think a better picture is available... gazhiley 12:00, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
  • The buildings too the left are part of Clare College, but the buildings to the right are part of Kings. Andrew Gray (talk) 18:07, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose Too low resolution to have sufficient EV for the buildings in the background, and for the landscape the framing is too tight. Not a bad composition, although the tree on the right appears somewhat uncontrolled. Nice image but not FP. --ELEKHHT 11:51, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose The composition is a bit awkward. The photo appears to have been taken from the meadow across from the college, and I think that the photographer could have obtained a much better result from walking a bit to his left. Nick-D (talk) 10:50, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose. As with Elekhh, I'm not seeing FP quality here. It's a pretty stock composition - which isn't to say it's bad, but it does mean that it needs to distinguish itself against the hundred other shots from the same spot which are on flickr. It definitely needs the left side buildings in frame so as not to look cut off; including more (or none) of the tree on the right would also be a good idea.
