    Very cool. It reminds me of very early 19th century photographs.

    It's surely available as a software update for the iPhone camera?

    They should have just taken a regular photo, and run it through the rasterbator

    Looks, well sort of crap eh?

    When i read this on teletext i imagined a massive pristine colour image the size of New Zealand, not a blurry black and white fuzz-a-rama image.

    Still, makes interesting reading.

    Dude, i was implying that the image should be a little bigger than 4 * 6 inches, say 400 * 600 miles.....;)

    Was going to say Wales but i had just mentioned Peter Jackson in an earlier post and my mind was all things Kiwi.

    :p

    The biggest photo in the world, and it's not of boobies?

    I call fake.*
    (* the photo, not the boobies)

    They couldn't get her to stand in the exact same position for ten days so it came out so blurry it just looked Dick Chaney with his shirt off.

    So they went with Plan B, the above photo.

    El Toro... El Toro... Hmm. Ah, yes! I remember now. That "photo" is a fake because El Toro was destroyed back in 1996 during the alien invasion that Will Smith had to fight off. It's in that documentary film, Independence Day. This was a year before Will Smith started working for the government and erased all our memories of the event.

    :p

    Neat idea though - I found myself wondering similarly about the swimming pool filled with photo developing chemicals.

    they avoided talking about chemical disposal on the legacy proj website, go figure.

    the exposure was "only" 35 minutes by the way (i know, still too long for boobies)

    i think it needs more contrast
