Please feel free to modify the file as you proposed. It was shot with an iphone and I forgot to adjust it.
- Done. Thank you. I kept the very same proportion, I usually keep file in "standard" ratio (4:3, 5:16, 1:2, 1:1). I have also used ir on enwikipedia. So thank you.--Alexmar983 (talk) 16:44, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
- if it looks the same to you, it simply takes a while to update the display sometimes. Minutes, hours... I guess it is a cache of some database somewhere.--Alexmar983 (talk) 16:45, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
- Reading Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#Madagascar I am not sure if we can keep it but I left other people to decide it. I don't consider myself an expert on this issue. We'll see. Don't get frustrated if it is deleted. It could happen.--Alexmar983 (talk) 16:50, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
- Short writings such as the tomb of the king, or general composition (not too centered on a long text) should be fine, in my experience. This case has an original picture, so it might be an issue. Let's wait. You learn when you live :D Maybe there is some laws about government work that gives a different license. Someone will tell you. Plus here on commons rules are even too rigid.--Alexmar983 (talk) 17:40, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
