Will be interesting to see what they come up with. I expect that their "copy" will not look much like Ansel's original even if the light and timing are the same.

They would have to duplicate his equipment, film, processing lab, chemicals, paper, temperatures, etc. etc. etc. which would be nearly impossible.

Maybe the new point and shoot digitals will have a setting for "that Ansel look"??

Bill, it can always be Photoshopped and then no-one will be any the wiser .

Of course one would then ask why do that anyway when the original can always be seen.

Which begs the question, for me at least, why go to all that trouble, even if they could produce a carbon copy ??

Is your Government keen to hand outgrants/funds to completely unnecessary projects, pretty much like ours ?

This last question doesn't necessarily need an answer.

It would be fun to go along to the location of the photo when they duplicate the time of day and phase of the moon. I don't think the Ansel Adams Foundation has anything to fear from this group! They are just getting publicity for their dating method.

There was an interesting link in the article to another one where this group found some evidence that the first marathon was run in August instead of September.

Compared the two photos in the Gimp, cropped and resized the copy and converted to B&W and with a bit of rotation and scaling got them aligned as separate layers - The result: they are very similar however there are differences in the shadows cast and in the position of the moon - don't know how astronomically accurate the moon position is claimed to be - but it is not in the photo.

Max :?
