Dyment’s Farm Celebrating 125 Years

Getting EXCITED for the Google+ Photographer's Conference in San Francisco. I've been working very hard to earn my ticket. Just finished my first true HDR project and loved it. I photographed for the cover and inside spread of a cookbook, celebrating Dyment's Farm 125th anniversary. My client asked me to keep in mind a photograph taken back in the 80's by The Hamilton Spectator as seen below.   It is very difficult to recreate the shot because the angle and landscape has drastically changed. The image may have been manipulated, but I have no way of knowing for sure. After walking the entire farm for angle, positioning, composition and lighting I can only conclude the following: If the photograph is true, I believe it would have been taken high on a tower with a zoom. The property across the road was severed and cleared. Trees and a bell tower was taken down.  The foliage has grown and hardscapes make it near impossible to get the escarpment edge with the buildings for depth. It's a mystery to me and I'm interested to hear what you think! 80's Farm

The images I took of the farm were at dusk & early morning light on 3 separate days. I experimented with various angles, lenses & bracketed settings.[Nikon D3s, 70-200mm f/2.8, 10-20mm f/4.0-5.6, 50mm f/1.8 ]
