Heres a mod of the photo with a touch of emboss and enlarged with inverted color..

To me, I can see his face, and it looks like a dark haired young dude looking right at the camera and smiling a bit.

Very lucky and rare to get a picture of a spirit like this.

Yeah, I saw those. Nice pics.

But what's the explanation for the varying colours shown in the enhanced image? It looks like the water is shallow in the foreground and getting deeper towards the back...can the colours in the enhanced image be used to determine the depth of the water...or does the fact that the image is enhanced at all mean that the colours serve no purpose in this regard?


Well I wouldn't trust the colours 100% but it certainly makes sense that we are seeing deeper water out to sea, and shallow water over sand in the area where the figure is standing. Looking at the area where the photo was taken...



you can see that there is gently sloping sand there. (This pic is taken from the opposite direction, obviously, looking onshore, so the figure would be standing to the left of the line of rocks in this view.)

I have to say if the OP is genuine and not some very elaborate hoaxer, this is one of the better "ghost pictures" or at least some prime example of amazing paredoilia.

Even if we assume its paredoiliia and not a genuine ghost..WHAT would cause the smudge on the photograph? I cannot see a logical explanation since digital cameras won't just randomly produce such type of smudge...so it's indeed something unexplainable going on. For me what it would come down to (if I were an investigator) would be the credibility of the photographer..and if I were to interview him and otherwise come to the conclusion he is genuine/legit I would say this is a genuine and rather intriguing ghost photograph.

The "bird" is an illusion caused by the overlapping images. Notice how the picture is darker where two positions of the figure overlap, because in these areas the figure is blocking the light from the sea for longer.



The figure seems to be roughly in the position I've outlined at the right at the start of the exposure, then moves to a middle position, which leaves a small overlap, making a darker vertical band, then he moves to the left and stays more motionless, making a sharper image.

I'm not too sure what the solid dark area is across the waist area. Could be a small surfboard but then you's expect to see a sharp image of it at the left too. It does also seem to coincide with a darker area of sea behind so might just be down to that.

Anyway it is a cool image - I just don't think it's a ghost. He even seems to be casting a shadow in the water, which I don't think ghosts do

Could maybe be caused during the films manufacture.Nothing conclusive can be determined.I am a big student of the paranormal.I do make out 2 forms that appear humanoid though.

Holy cow...

Not sure what step I should take next....

Perhaps, can you expand on your film manufacture theory? Because I hear the sales of digital film has skyrocketed in recent years...

Not possible mate, I would have noticed.

Here is the images taken, seconds before and after the one in question.

If there was anything in the frame, it would have showed on the others too.







and that was taken, maybe within 10 to 15 seconds. I usually take many pics of one scene, so later I can pick the best one.

vvv


Not too far into the thread yet, so I don't know if it's been pointed out, but those two photos are both the same shot, the "after" photo. The EXIF data has the time stamp at 18:59:44 in both, the file sizes are exactly the same, as is the surf, mist, and clouds.

The anomalous photo is time stamped in the EXIF at 8:59:23, and all of the above parameters are different between it and either of those two.

ETA: What I'm seeing in the figures is two people, one standing and looking towards the camera, and another slightly closer to the camera an behind the first, bent over at the waist as if picking something up.

Need that EXIF data. Judging by the sea this is a long exposure. Looks unmistakably like a person who stood there for a little while before moving off.

They wouldn't appear in the other frames as they would have moved out of shot.

They only show up where they were stood fairly still. They could have moved out of shot BEFORE the end of this frame.

Very very cool picture.

It does look like the silhouette of a man and a big dog. VVV, I would look if you took a picture of yourself with a dog before this picture. I just wonder if something went wrong with the camera or the memory card and it merged within this pic.

If not, cool picture. Ghost or not.

In your best interests...how is it "copyrighted" to you specifically? As I see it, and as you presented it...it is not copyrighted at all. But, perhaps you have placed a watermark on it that cant be seen?

Just wondering...and trying to look out for you because of what you said there....

@VVV. You're not the first person to have taken a photo and not noticed a person wandering past the front of the camera while you were engrossed in taking the photo. Remember the legendary Solway Firth spaceman photo taken some 50 years ago,Jim also always claimed he didn't see his wife in the background while taking a photo of his daughter.

Though the viewfinder in the camera Jim Templeton was using significantly obscured his view. So if the spaceman was actually his wife, as many claim, he might not have seen her.

That doesn't seem to be the case here.

The processing really makes the guy on the right stand out clearly. I can see a bunch of different things on the left, but the distorted face I outlined is kind of creepy. It's pretty subtle so the outline almost covers up the edges.
