Agreed; the silver tarps on top of our shade structure right behind the Hookahdome came out as being solid black as well.Psycho wrote:I don't think anything was deliberately blacked out, I think it's just a REALLY contrasty picture (not sure if they could correct for that after the pic is taken or not). If you brighten it up, you can start to see the patterns on the Center Camp tent.Ugly Dougly wrote:How weird that Centre Camp is blacked out. Was this the day that they Bilderbergs were holding their annual BRC meeting?
I think anything that was black, or really dark colored, came out nearly solid black in this photo. You can also see the Yurt camp (I think) with all the weird white cone-shapes coming off the tops of the yurt (sun reflection).
We had a shade structure in our camp that was a kind of reflective dark-gray color (kind of a solar shield tarp), and it's a solid black square in the picture. No detail at all (granted, it's tiny too), but it definitely looks different in the Sep 1 photo. I think the pic just came out bad, probably why they didn't use it on the site. I wish it was higher resolution though..
The image used in Google Earth is much less contrasty:
I don't suppose anyone has a link to a jog or png of that one, do they?
