Panoramic view of the Seine in Paris[edit]

Panoramic view of the Seine in Paris with St-Michel bridge on the left and Notre-Dame cathedral to the right. I believe it shows well the Seine and it's surrounding area from a pedestrian point of view.

New edit: restitched to straighten Notre-Dame and eliminate part of wall
    • I think the river is totally straight at that point - certainly the near bank appears to be straight, so I doubt the far side would be bent. Stevage 14:58, 7 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose I really like the quality of light and color in this picture, much like Cafe Terrace at Night. I am not sure about the encyclopedic and informative value though. DVD+ R/W 03:31, 9 May 2006 (UTC)Neutral It shows the Seine at night, very well. DVD+ R/W 03:42, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Oppose - I'm sure it'd look great on a wall in an upmarket coffee shop or bar but it's not really very illustrative of anything in particular, except possibly perspective --Yummifruitbat 23:04, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose, Too many colored lights! -- BWF89 02:46, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. It's disorienting to have such a wide panorama for content so close-up; all sense of the actual proportions of the scene is lost. (e.g., how much does the river curve vs. how much does it appear to curve?)--ragesoss 21:25, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Close up of panaroma distorts the proportions and may give skewed idea to viewer. -Ambuj Saxena (talk) 09:38, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I don't like the distorting caused by the panorama effect, and it doesn't seem necessary to have the cathedral in it. ---Pharaoh Hound 12:10, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Not bad, nice colours but as janke said, vertical lines are not vertical and its just not an interesting enough scene to warrant FPC for me. Diliff | (Talk) (Contribs) 11:15, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support - Its a great panorama which really represents the city of Paris Flymeoutofhere 16:46, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Weak oppose - I'm not a big fan of 360 degree panoramas, I admit. Such wide images aren't very helpful for Wikipedia, and obviously the composition suffers as you have little control over the elements in the scene. Why not crop it to remove the quai, which is not that interesting? Then you have the bridge on the left, and Notre Dame on the right, and the only regret is the boring trees and riverbank in the middle :) But really, a panorama staring at a wall just gives me the heebie jeebies...it's very claustrophobic.

  • Weak oppose - the Notre Dame is tilted! Needs to be re-stitched with attention to vertical lines. --Janke | Talk 07:20, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose. I don't see the point of having so much that concrete structure on the right. Would support a crop of just the river. howcheng {chat} 07:05, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Weak support lovely colours, great sharpness, but it's just lacking something IMO. chowells 14:23, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The perspective and angles are just too much, IMO. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 22:09, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
