    Good questions, Juan; that is the sort of thing that needs examining.

    I would love to have winger look at the plates! She can tell us what is feasible and what is not, I wager.

    apeter Thank you for the response. As a pro photographer and a lawyer, I am really interested in this situation!

    I promise you Mr King, I could get a whole trainload of "world renowned experts" to swear under oath that you did in fact make these negatives. And another trainload to swear that you didn't!

    Interesting comment about the fact that the two identical images do not prove that the photos were taken by the same person...you will be interested to hear what our expert Patrick Alt has to say about this issue. See attached link re our press release...the final report will be available after the news conference next Tuesday.

    Tale of Ansel Adams Negatives Grows Hazy
    I don't agree. This tale has been hazy for 10 years and is only getting worse.

    Now, from Uncle Earl's standpoint, things have been clearing up!

    Does anyone know how Adams disposed of his 2nd rates?

    Sometimes, photographers trash them, and they are not always properly destroyed...

    Did he do his own trashing or was this left to others?

    Just curious....

    Or... he had no throw aways?

    It looks like they're likely Earl's, not Ansel's, but the bottom line here is the people involved in producing and verifying this whole thing are looking very shady indeed. If the guy who has these plates really wanted to come off as legit his choice of legal representation was a really, really BAD call. Me, I'm just waiting for the Ansel Adams estate to sue these people blind, not so much because they care about the plates, clearly they don't believe they are Ansel's, but because they don't want him claiming they are Ansel's. It's clear they are intent upon selling prints of them as his and that is illegal no matter which way you look at it. They have no right to use Ansel Adam's name to further any sales of these plates or prints thereof, period.

    I really hope they turn out to be Ansel's plates and the court returns them to his estate where they belong!

    Not Adams.

    Drag your mouse pointer over the image here to see the overly comparison with Uncle Earl's image. http://www.petapixel.com/2010/07/29/...rently-solved/
