That procedure leads to the result (word-wrapped):

| <p>
|   <a 
|     <img 
 alt="Ehrenstetten - Ölbergkapelle6.jpg" width="16247" height="6083">
|   </a>
|   <br>
|   By <a href="//commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Taxiarchos228" 
title="User:Taxiarchos228">Taxiarchos228</a> -
|   <span class="int-own-work" lang="en">Own work</span>,
|   <a href="http://artlibre.org/licence/lal/en"; title="Free Art 
|   <a href="https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=41725272";>Link</a>
| </p>

I. e., the author is credited as "Taxiarchos228".  The note
under the image says (in bold): "Als Gegenleistung für die
kostenlose (nichtgewerbliche) Nutzung muss der Weiternutzer
nur die Lizenzbedingungen einhalten und den Fotografen (mei-
nen vollständigen Klarnamen Wladyslaw Sojka sowie die ver-
linkte Website www.sojka.photo) als Urheber nennen."

The used Free Art License says in "2.2 Freedom to Distrib-
ute, to Perform in Public":

| You have the right to distribute copies of this work; wheth-
| er modified or not, whatever the medium and the place, with
| or without any charge, provided that you:

| - […]

| - specify to the recipient the names of the author(s) of the
|   originals, including yours if you have modified the work,

| - specify to the recipient where to access the originals
|   (either initial or subsequent).

| […]

I'm not convinced that "Taxiarchos228" is the "name" of the
author as required by the license.
