I think is a bit too simplistic to go with a photo converted to 
grayscale and then colorized blue.

Also, it was discussed a few weeks ago that we don't want to go with jut 
a ruin and send the wrong message about Fedora being a ruin. If we are 
going to use some ruins, they have to be accompanied by other elements, 
like growing vegetation and such.

The license is fine (PD), but IMO the photo is not that great: it has 
very aggressive JPEG compression resulting in a very noisy background 
and the framing do not allow for wide screen cropping (we would have to 
cut from important parts of the image).
