Alternative banners[edit]

The current banner is an awkward view of the bottom of the canyon, so I've cropped some alternatives.

Alternative #1
Alternative #2

I'm not too confident about these, but I quite like #1 now I look at it. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 00:48, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

My vote is Alternative #1 first, then close between alternative #2 and the current banner. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 00:49, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
I'd go with Alt 1, too. Ground Zero (talk) 00:59, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
Alt 2 is more unusual, so without knowing much about the park, I'd tend to favor it, then Alt 1 and then the current banner. Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:13, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
I will go with Alt 1... The tree in Alt 2 kind of doesn't belong there. Arep Ticous 14:56, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Please sign your post, and why doesn't it? Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:19, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ikan Kekek: the positioning seems a bit dull... A tree in the middle of a Canyon doesn't usually brighten up the view. The picture must make viewers believe that the canyon is a bottemless pit(added details in a photographer's view.) Arep Ticous 14:56, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
OK, I understand your point of view, but I think the 2nd alternative looks like a better-quality picture (at this size, anyway), and I don't get the sense that that tree is at the bottom of the canyon. Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:12, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Considering the way this is going, I think it may be worth including both banners in the article, the "winner" (whichever choice that turns out to be) at the top and the "loser" somewhere else lower in the article, since on each side there seems to be quite enthusiastic support. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 22:54, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
  • @Ikan Kekek: banner #1 is 3000px and Banner #2 is 4000px. So #2 is better but both are good. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 22:25, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Resolution is far from the only element of picture quality. Have you ever looked at Commons:Quality image candidates, particularly the discussion at the bottom of the page in "Consensual Review"? Different photos of the same resolution can be great and crap. Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:48, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ikan Kekek: OK, sorry for not understanding that you mean more than just resolution. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 23:21, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
  • I must call that things go for alternative #1 here. However, since the support for alternative #2 wasn't exactly fainthearted (which of course is a good thing), I will include that picture somewhere in the article itself. Thanks, everyone, for participating. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 00:33, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
