Yup. Looks like a president of the US. An old one. So.. any of them start with a D? Took me a bit too long really.

Seconded. That was my first thought and it fits the picture perfectly too. I did get dune when it didn't work though.

it fits, not perfectly though, dune fits perfectly. But I agree, it could be an accepted answer, it is not wrong

The hill is very prominent in the picture, so "dune" is clearly a better answer, but I guess "desert" could also work.

Normally I would think you're being overly pedantic with a comment like but if the quizmaker includes other foreign words like "duomo" as an answer then other foreign words should be fair game too.

Any time anyone comes on here complaining that a place name should be accepted in its native language they are shot down as this is an English language quiz and if they can read 100s of other words to comprehend the quiz it is beneficial to learn an English equivalent relevant to their country.

....so why are we expected to use a foreign answer that means simply cathedral? They're called that all over Italy, not just that one.

Dalmatian is also a Dog

But it's also a breed that is 1. one of the most easily recognizable dog breeds and 2. starts with "D"

I entered dog first as well. However, you're right that Dalmatian was a quick and easy second choice.

The delta in that picture is right in the center. The canal is off to the right a bit.

The last one (Duomo) took me by surprise. Anyone who has been to Macau (near Hong Kong) has likely seen a very similar facade which is what I thought this one was---that one is the ruins of St. Paul's, from the 17th century, but very similar look. Raspberries.

The Dollar picture made me think, which is a good thing. Admittedly, my initial thinking was all over the place (Georges Danton on the $27 dollar bill - very rare), but I got there.

Dollar... specifically zoomed in at the portrait...

I havent complained about any clue ever before (made suggestions yes) but this one? Really.. quite a bad clue imo.

to be perfectly honest, it is the first time that one has ever annoyed me in hindsight. Though there have been plenty of times when I thought oowwww thát's what you mean (with or without the follow up; well that could ve been a bit clearer, depending on how obvous it was in hindsight or not)
