    Good to see that a 'real' photograph has set the record, rather than that poor excuse for a photo that Richard Price took which held the previos record.

    Boy, that picture looks cool! I didn't know they had Photoshop back then!! I mean, it's obviously been manipulated to make the setting sun look like the moon, and all that Gaussian blur, c'mon.

    I, for one, am THRILLED to see that the most expensive photograph ever sold is a gum-platinum. Maybe it's time to add a zero or two to my prices... OTOH, maybe I should wait until I've been dead for a while.

    Not so fast, Kerik. But I can float the rumor you are not feeling well. Maybe that will give your prices a little bump up.
