Hi all,

The below pic is a "blow up":



of the following shot:



Wot izzit?

The original pic was at 2272 x 1704 and taken with a Fuji S5500 over the left shoulder as I left a room. I offer no opinion or further info at present...I dont want to cloud judgement!!!

Any ideas??

I wait enlightenment and the inevitable sarcasm!! LOL

Can always post direct links instead of hotlinking the images.

I think it's just some dust which moved as you took the image. wouldn't suprise me with all the fabric hanging there.

Could be dust.

I have seen a lot of these in some of my own pictures lately. Some in dusty situations, some not.

I tried to do some research but there does not seem to be any good concencus anywhere.

Some say dust, some say spirits, some say an inherent flaw with digital photography.

I don't really think that it is dust, simply because it has a "tail" as I would call it. Either it is some odd reflected light, its spiritual or the picture has been photo-shopped. You decide!

Send me a U2U and I'll give you my e-mail address to post the original to.

It must be the original, which will include the "exif" data.

Once I am happy that it is on the original I will post my comments.

Koka,

I cant U2U as I have only just joined and you need at least 20 posts to U2U (why????)
Does your registered email work? The file is about 1.2Mb.

Look through the paranormal forum and you will find dozens of pictures exactly like this, as well as some specifically created to debunk the phenomenon. It's dust. Any time you use a flash, it usually creates some dust orbs.

At least in most people's opinions

Sorry, I forgot about that.

I've updated my profile with an e-mail you can send it to.

Remember, it must be the image that came directly from the camera.

Hi Koka,

Pix are deleted from the camera on download
... I can take up to 400 pix in a day..not every day though.

I still have a copy of the image as downloaded with the relevant exif data however, there would still be a question of authenticity I suppose?? So there may be no point in further scrutiny? Let me know.

I am just puzzled by the apparent consecutive circles in a kind of "L" shape. (I am not saying there is any relevance to the "pattern") There were several other pix wih nothing else on them. I may explain more later.

Thank you for your interest either way.

What is that in the window?

HI siriuslyone,

That is just flash reflection and the darker shape in silhouette there is a leaf of a floral display I believe.

Thank you for your interest.

Ok HD I got the image.



Going by the EXIF data the shutter speed was was 1/64th of a second which means the object would have to have moved the distance from A to B, in the instance the shutter was open.

The EXIF data does not contain any information regarding the light source or flash used which I was quite surprised about, as I assume you used the in built flash....


I noticed a similar circle on the mirror, see C, which shows no movement (tail), you may want to check to see if the mark is on the mirror itself.

May I ask why you were taking a shot over your shoulder...


I'm not a strong believer in "Orbs" and tend to go with the dust particle theory, but if this were dust in the room it would have to be travelling pretty fast to show trails in a photo using a flash.
Even though the shutter speed was relatively slow, we are still talking 1/64th of a second.

I'm not sure I can shed any light (no pun intended) on this, but would tend to say that it has not been Photoshopped and would doubt its dust inside the camera, as its a sealed unit.

In short.........inconclusive........

It looks like a "hair" from some fabric or something like that.

What were you wearing when you took the picture, maybe some particle from your clothes got in front of the lens, as you say that you took over your shoulder.

Can you enlarge the circle at Point B - the reason being, I want to see what and if anything is shown when it is enlarged! A professional Paranormal Investigator I know has had some shots like this, and enlarged them to find unusual evil faces in them when enlarged! I say definitely it is not dust!

Brain wave Functions Alpha Beta Theta Brainwaves. The final brainwave state is delta. Here the brainwaves are of the greatest amplitude
It is a well known fact that humans dream in 90 minute cycles. When the delta brainwave frequencies increase into the frequency of theta brainwaves, active dreaming takes place. Out of sleep brainwaves will increase from delta to theta and then to alpha and finally, when the eyes open, into beta. During this awakening cycle it is possible for individuals to stay in the theta state for an extended period of say, five to 15 minutes--which would allow them to have a free flow of ideas about yesterday's events or to contemplate the creative activities of the forthcoming day.
Research has shown that although one brainwave state may predominate at any given time, depending on the activity level of the individual, the remaining three brain states are present in the mix of brainwaves at all times. In other words, while somebody is an aroused state and exhibiting a beta brainwave pattern, there also exists in that person's brain a component of alpha, theta and delta, even though these may be present only at the trace level.
Beta - 15 to 40 cycles a second.
Alpha - 9 to 14 cycles per second.
Theta - 5 and 8 cycles a second.
Delta - 1.5 to 4 cycles per second.
A brain can generate as much as 10 watts of electrical power. Scientists calculate that if all 10 billion interconnected nerve cells discharged, something like five millionths to 50 millionths of a volt would be recorded.

So what your camera snapped was your trace levels of Delta going to Theta and the white orb is a ping pong ball in your dream memory bank.

1) Dust particle, or
2) "Trace levels of Delta going to Theta and the white orb is a ping pong ball in your dream memory bank."

Occam's Razor tells me... dun dun dun daaaaa - 1) Dust particle!

Oh common sense would too.

Can I also throw in my 'gut feeling' and 'hunch' that it's a dust particle?

But in every yang there's a yin so hmm theoretically there is approximately 0.00000001% chance that it COULD be a "trace levels of Delta going to Theta and the white orb is a ping pong ball in your dream memory bank.", so I won't rule that one out completely Honor Seed

Peace out
