  • Yes slightly on the far left. Although the vertical lines on the background buildings are fine. Bammesk (talk) 13:00, 20 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose – As Janke notes, vertical perspective much distorted. – Sca (talk) 12:40, 20 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • However, that is fixable... at least to some degree. I could do it, if there's support for the idea. --Janke | Talk 12:48, 20 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • Janke, Sca is opposing the overall wide-angle perspective, not the vertical lines. I think he is conflating the two in writing his rationale. Bammesk (talk) 13:39, 20 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The image is what it is – a distorted representation of reality. Whether it's due to the lens is irrelevant to the viewer. – Sca (talk) 13:10, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Alt.1 - Perspective correction by Janke
  • Support either, prefer Alt 1. How about this little perspective change - a little magic done with Darktable? Note that I did not tilt the edges, since as Bammesk notes, the background buildings are straight - so maybe the arena walls really tilt a little outward? --Janke | Talk 13:27, 21 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Thanks, I actually considered doing that myself. --Janke | Talk 08:36, 27 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I prefer Alt 1, much better. [1] This is a big arena 133x100m in a congested area. [2] Bammesk (talk) 02:56, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
