Well, as he asked so nicely...

Wow! I love the way the subtleties of the various tonalities that manifest themselves in that picture leap out at you.

It evokes an overwhelming sense of hope and futility, two contrasting sentiments that go hand in hand with each other and are depicted so brilliantly throughout.

How much more black could it be? None more. None more black.

Now, a relative of mine has discovered that he is the rightful heir to $419 million and all that he needs to now is raise enough cash to fly to Tucson, Arizon to claim what is rightfully his.

Unfortunately my relative is a poor peasant farmer from Cydonia and doesn't have the cash to fly to Tucson, Arizona so we're trying to raise money to pay for his flight there and some money for modest accommodation during his stay.

We would be most grateful if....

The thing is, a camera leaves a sort of fingerprint, which is best seen when taking a "empty" photograph...

but that fingerprint will be affected by the level of jpg compression selected and whether your camera applies dark frame subtraction and a few other things

andraz' request is, um, silly
