This post just caught my eye, and I decided to see what I could do with the two images. I snipped the image from the pdf you link to, and superimposed it on your image from flickr. I ended up having to stretch their image vertically a bit to get it to fit, but doing so shows the two images fit very well. I did not take the time to get it more perfect.
The photo has to be streeeeetched ( 15% or so ) vertically with everything getting longer so that it can fit over each other .
Hard to believe an the advertising agency serving Commonwealth Olympic Games - probably being paid Megabucks :
- dived into flickr , stole a photo as if there were not hundreds of other photos available ( cost 25 cents in Shutterstock )
- stretched vertically to avoid identification
- And then they were so BRAVE , they went ahead and placed a half page advertisement in a large Indian newspaper ....
- Let's not forget they used a 800 pixel image for a half page newspaper ad
The above is possible but simply someone else sitting 5 rows above and taking the same shot is not . What can I say ????
And why would they worry about stretching for copyright reasons as the olympic commitee would have all the copyrights for the opening event anyway .
And I am still banned from commenting on his flickr photo - somehow doesn't want me to follow the matter there among his mates .
