    Thanks.
    I think those shadows around Yosemite are the reason Adams had to
    perfect the Zone system. Another few minutes and the entire Valley
    floor would have been in shadow, that was shot in mid-November.

    Perhaps a 3:5 crop eliminating the foreground shadow might be more pleasant.
    ....as to the shadow in the middle....

  3. Move a Saturn V in front of it. :->
    Or have a Space Shuttle on it's transporter flown in front of it. ;-)

    Brilliant!
    Now why didn't I think of that?
    It is just that you really need more than one since they are only 363 ft. tall.

    I guess your fantasy humor meter is in need of calibration.
    If you seriously thought establishing accurate scale with an imaginary,
    fictional animal of cinema-graphic legend was the way to go, then you
    obviously missed point of the tongue in cheek over exaggeration.

    I had no idea of the size of Kong, nor do I care. It was all meant to
    be a bit of a joke.

    The defined height of the Saturn V three stage rocket at 363 ft. does
    give a meaningful scale.

  7. It's more impressive if it's actually in flight in front of it.

    (And if that doesn't do it, there are some tall buildings or
    long ships that can stand in.)

    So!
    He wasn't called "King" for no reason.
    He's a king sized King Kong.

    IMHO CA ranks third in States with a reputation for exaggeration, right
    after TX & AK.
