    You'd think the sun would be big enough to light up the whole scene in this shot, and not just one
    tiny little area.

    It's also interesting that the horizon only comes up to middle of the poser's head, and less then
    shoulder heighth of the photographer. Wow, that's one TINY little moon!

    I also find it interesting that the shadows of the two people's reflections off the helmet have such
    a huge difference in the length of their shadows.

    There are many more inconsistencies in lighting that prove than in no way was this photo taken on
    the moon. I'll let you find them. I'll give you a hint. Can you say BACKDROP?

    This is a studio photo.

    1) the sun is lighting up the entire area - you can clearly see this. You
    can also clearly see the brighter area behind/around (but not in front) the
    astro, caused by reflection/scatter of sunlight back to the ground.In
    short - those area's are receiving almost twice as many photon's so appear
    doubly bright. yes - the astro's suits are WHITE!

    2) The camera is located on on the chest area of the tog, and pic will
    appear to show the horizon lower than it actually is regardless of any other
    factors as long as you concentrate on the astro. 2B) they are standing on a
    slope.

    3) Uh - are you totally thi*k or what? The visor is curved. Objects
    reflected in the bottom half will always appear longer than they are - those
    toward the middle will be closer to reality. Also see 2b.

    Please feel free to point out the *many* other area's where your knowledge
    falls well short of that required for taking a dump.

    Only a moron like Spaz would believe that this is a studio image.
    Congratulations.

    I just got an idea.

    Anyone really good with Photoshop here?

    If so, put together a picture of the lunar surface based upon what it should
    look like, on film, to the conspiracists...

    I.e., glaring surface, perfectly perpendicular shadows (regardless of
    terrain), stars visible everywhere in the sky, big dust storms, etc...

    You should do this

    call it a faked real

    in fact you have just invented a whole new genre of
    photoshopped art - the faked real shot made up to
    convince a loon that they are wrong...

    brilliant

    start a blog, sell advertised swamp land and craters
    to loons only (don't break the law tho)

    Get some funding from Mr Oberg

    and you will be rich
    this could even extend to HOLLYWOOD
    just read up on Jungian Archetypes and Junk DNA
    (as applied to the loon that is)
    and get working on the screenplay


    congratulations!

  10. You'd think that even a modicum of research would be done _before_
    announcing your extraordinarily st00pid claims.

    Before anyone nitpicks, I meant "parallel" not "perpendicular", but you get
    the idea...

    Have you noticed that the light on the spacesuit is from the side while
    the causing the shadow is from behind????

  18. In
    It's interesting to note of couse Alderin appears to be leaning forward at
    an angle that would be difficult to sustain in Earth gravity particularly
    with such a heavy back pack. Of couse that would tend to indicate it's
    genuine.
