    Re: Tripod Holes

    My quote, as posted in post #22, leaves out an important aspect that I figured was obvious, that is, in repeat photography with a purpose of rigorous comparison, the standpoint needs to be the same...

    Re: Tripod Holes

    I figured format would matter a lot or you, as you contact print. My reply was meant to be more generic. As for a retake being close to the original, I have noticed that many people find the...

    Mark Klett has a website http://thirdview.org/3v/rephotos/index.html for his Third View work, but you probably know about this.

    You probably know this, but the differing format does not matter that much, and makes no difference as long as the same stand-point is used, the images are centered, and the field of view of the...

    Do you mean the big boulder in the arch? Is that a person standing in the arch in the scene with the boulder? It's hard to tell from the images. The fate of the boulder is intriguing. If I am ever in...
  6. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    Thanks for the clarification; I confused your response with mpirie's post #49.
    By the way, I am familiar with Mark Klett's work, mainly the "Third View, second sights".

    I have a similar, ongoing...

    The above quote was about the book Shoshone Falls.

    Here is a thread on repeat photography of natural (i.e., non-urban) landscapes. There may be another or others like this; if so, then this could be joined with it. Others can post their photos as...
  18. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    Emotion is fine and interesting, but dramatic stories do not need to be so embellished that they become non-factual. When I see a lot of obvious embellishment or outright lies, I start to doubt the...

    Sorry to hear about your not-so-good experience with scientists; I have had my share as well.

    Hello Bryan,

    As always, I really like your woods scenes from the southern Appalachians. The slanting deadfall in this one adds a lot to the composition.
  21. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    No implication, but rather a definite yes, at least once in a while, on some topics that I have experience with.

  27. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    Gosh, I wish volume of output and truth were always positively correlated.

  28. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    It's the other way around -- those that cannot keep up often miss clues about validity, or lack thereof. Those that can, catch mistakes and lies. That is the reason for peer review in the sciences,...
