To refresh our Featured Images, I tried to collect some pictures that could be used. I'd like to hear some feedback on the selected images as to which ones would be good to see on the main page. There's need for 10 images at least. Of course, I'm open to other suggestions too, I'm mainly offering options here.

Dragon Age: Inquisition:
Halamshiral
The Fade
Another variant for the Fade
The garden of Winter Palace
Adamant Fortress
Exalted Plains

Dragon Age II:
Vhenadahl in the Kirkwall Alienage
Dead Man's Pass

Dragon Age: Origins:
Mage tower (This one is already in use but I think it's a good screenshot from Origins)
Denerim Chantry
Fort Drakon
Golem Monument
The Urn of Sacred Ashes (Would it be spoilery for potential newcomers?)

Miscellaneous:
A depiction of The Grand Game from the tabletop RPG (This is already in use too)
A drake in Dawn of the Seeker (Also in use)

My personal preference for the 10 images would be:
Ostagar
Wonder of Thedas
Ruins of the Brecilian Forest
The "Twins of Kirkwall" statues
Red lyirum veins found in the Primeval Thaig
Kirkwall Chantry
Skyhold
The Dales
Redcliffe
The Inquisitor meeting a giant

I personally would go for screenshots from the games, since the base of the franchise is the game series, and while I do think concept arts are pretty, I think we can have some good screenshots from the games too. I picked mainly location pictures, because those tend to be neutral and gives away less of the story, so they can be easily used purely for aesthetic reasons. I do have two images that don't exactly fit with the rest under Miscellaneous, though. I found them nice and they are already used in the feature. If you have any suggestions like the pictures above or something else differently, go ahead and share! --Margerard 23:25, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

These all look pretty good. Except I would definitely include the image of Ostagar and I would not include the image of the Winter Palace under Halamshiral. It seems to me like that title should be reserved for an actual image of the city proper. -HD3 Sig 08:57, October 30, 2014 (UTC)

Actually I agree about that one, I named it so only because the image uploaded is named as such - but yeah, that should be Winter Palace if that gets picked. --Margerard 17:03, October 30, 2014 (UTC)

I prefer concept art over screenshots myself, as I think it makes the front page look a little "classier". And it's a way to highlight some really nice pieces of art. I like a lot of the images you've got here. If I had to boil it down, I'd say:
Halamshiral
The garden of Winter Palace
Adamant Fortress
The Grand Game
Twins of Kirkwall Statues
Red lyirum veins found in the Primeval Thaig
Ostagar
Kirkwall Chantry
The Dales
Redcliffe
The Circle Tower

I like where this is going. It's easy enough to add and remove images so Margerard, once you feel that there is enough consensus the changes can be made directly to Portal:Component/Images. -- tierrie talk contr 02:35, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the feedback, the change is made! --Margerard 23:22, October 31, 2014 (UTC)
