Interesting, but it is not entirely accurate, these two particular Photos (http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/photo_database/image/the_valley_of_the_shadow_of_death/) were debated at the NY Times here (http://morris.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/09/25/which-came-first-the-chicken-or-the-egg-part-one/), and here (http://morris.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/10/04/which-came-first-part-two/), here (http://morris.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/10/23/which-came-first-part-three-can-george-lionel-and-marmaduke-help-us-order-the-fenton-photographs/) and finally here (http://morris.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/12/18/not-your-moms-apple-pie-chart/). I was part of that discussions at the NY Times and I was one of the ones who thought it was actually wrong and Fenton has been given a bad rap over it. So the site is wrong on that account, proof shows it was not a hoax and if you know how to look and analyze minor details and outside the obvious you can spot what others don't. I also posted Fenton photo discussion here a while back.
