  • Support as nominator –  — Amakuru (talk) 19:06, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment - I did also consider nominating this as a set, with File:Coventry Cathedral 2018.jpg, a Commons Quality Picture showing the new cathedral. Not sure on the rules for sets though - they are not by the same creator, for example. If anyone thinks that would work, please let me know and I'll add it in.  — Amakuru (talk) 19:08, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
    I'd consider a separate nomination for that image instead. MER-C 20:41, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
    Fair enough.  — Amakuru (talk) 21:16, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Weak support. Hmmm, I can't quite come around to giving this a full support due to the soft focus. There's something about the composition being a little too tightly cropped, but if the photographer's back was against the wall I understand - we don't want the entry price for FPC being a full frame camera and $1000+ lenses.

  • Regretful oppose due to focus problems at the edges of the frame. I like the composition, but even in 2012 I think that the focus problems should have been a red flag, and in 2018 I think that we should be able to do much better for "Wikipedia's best work". --Pine 05:21, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose – agree with Pine about the focus, also the sky through the left arched-window is slightly brighter than the other windows! Bammesk (talk) 01:02, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
