No i am quite positive that the difference along the water lines are due to the fact that someone used photoshop on it. If you look closely the writing below the shore line is truncated to a vertical line while u can see the "yu-fu-?"- on mine.
also i am quite aware, that the subject alone is no indication at all. They copied each other all the time. But speaking from my own humble collection/experience not in such a direct form. Like half the yoshitoshi prints i own are just his take on earlier kuniyoshi-version. but it takes you like a second to see who did which ;-)
especially considering that Horst Gräbner said he did find the series, if not the name, and it was signed 'Fukiyo Matahei".
Thanks so a lot for sharing your expertice.
Once more: You got any clue what the "kamiguchi we no 2" means in the middle - if that is the correct reading ;-)
