Applicability for non-photos[edit]

Actually, using this property for paintings is not perfectly clear, as it could mean both 1) the place from which the subject is depicted 2) the place where the work was painted (for photos, both have to be the same -except postprocessing- but for paintings they can be different). I had in mind meaning 1) when proposing this property, should I change the description to make that more explicit ? --Zolo (talk) 07:44, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

I seems clear to me from the labels that 1) is what is meant. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 22:58, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
