Alternative banner for this article?[edit]

Banner currently used in this article
Suggested new alternative banner

I have previously created an alternative banner for this article (which was initially created for the parallel article at the Hebrew Wikivoyage, but I decided to suggest we'll use it here at the English Wikivoyage article as well). Which banner do you prefer that we'll use on the top of this article? ויקיג'אנקי (talk) 13:23, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

  • We generally avoid close-ups of people, but the new banner is more interesting. Ground Zero (talk) 19:15, 13 March 2021 (UTC)
I agree, but it looks like it has a cylindrical projection, which makes it a view that could never be seen with the naked eye. Am I right? -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:27, 14 March 2021 (UTC)
Wide-angle view is not preferrable to represent a destination. Neither is close-ups of people. /Yvwv (talk) 14:43, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

Two more suggestions: Ground Zero (talk) 17:13, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

banner 3
banner 4
  • I'll point out that #3 also looks like a cylindrical projection of some kind, but I'm going to rely on all of you to make the choice of banner. Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:01, 14 March 2021 (UTC)
    • I don't understand the objection to cylindrical projections. I don't think that is a policy. I think that the existing banner is awful, and prefer any of 2, 3 or 4 to it. 3 is my preferred choice. Those who don't like the choices so far are welcome to propose alternatives.

I think they're questionable because they show a view that can't be seen with the naked eye. Ikan Kekek (talk) 00:18, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
I don't see a problem with that as a cylindrical projection can sometimes give a better overall impression than a true-to-life projection. Ground Zero (talk) 00:59, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
That would be the advantage, yes. I just think it's worth a discussion. Banner #2 looks way more distorted than #3, on the face of it (not knowing the city). Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:11, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

I myself prefer #3 ויקיג'אנקי (talk) 11:31, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
