You have got two things wrong .
1) The challenge was ""What I will gladly do for you ,is take a bet ,you suggest a site and I will tell you where the sun will rise or set as seen from the site or the alt ,to the same tolerance as is usually expected from astro calc. A referee can hold the £100 and check the test ."
As has already been pointed out , I do the work and a refereee is required to double check and hold the dosh . What you came up with does not fit either criteria .
Worse and where you shot yourself in the foot .
2) What you did come whilst attempting to evade the challenge was wrong . The co-ordinates you provided are not of the point where you took the pics . If you had taken the pics from the co-ordinates you provided you would not have seen the sun rise over the roof as depicted.This can be proved by a basic understanding of the alt from the co-ordinates provided and even looking at the pics .
You not only evaded the challenge but by attempting to be clever /sneaky you still got it wrong .
