The most obvious sign is the general lighting of the scene:

How so, it's in the middle of the sky. I see no difference in the light on the "thing" then on the trees.
• the shadows (on the craft) are too crisp.
What shadows? it's in the middle of a bright sky. The only shadow you can see is inside the ring and nothing looks out of the ordinary.
• if you look at the area on the craft where the "egg beater" spines meet the "ring", you can see shadows being cast from the "egg
beater" over the edge of the ring, they are at the wrong anlge versus the light source in the scene (the sun)
Actually, if you look at the shadows on the trees they match exactly the same angle as the shadows casted by the "spokes". (in the only picture that
has the rings casting a shadow)
• there is no real sense of depth, is the craft in the foreground or the background? (second image)
Ok maybe its hard to tell in the 2nd image but in image 1,3,4, & 5 you don't have that problem.
• the craft is too crisp.
Isn't todays camera technology wonderful. This is bad? This makes it more "fake" somehow?
• It just does'nt feel/look right.....I realise that statement is'nt conclusive proof, but like I said, without trying to sound cocky,
I've been doing this for a while now.
That is your opinion, sir.
In terms of 3d modelling, that is not a very complex craft to model, it consists of very basic shapes and would take an experienced 3d artist
not longer then a few hours to model and map, the trick comes with the lighting, but these days with VRay/Mental Ray renderers its not that difficult
to recreate pretty convincing lighting.
I've seen all the latest lucasfilm movies myself and this is beyond anything the best of the best can do with 3D CGI IMO.
As someone else posted you can see a silver/grey something waaay up above the "thing" in the sky. You see this silver/grey thing in two different
pictures. You can see it in image 3 and image 4 (from under the "thing) which I find very interesting. Especially in image 4 from under the craft,
you can tell it's way up high in the sky above the "thing". I don't know if it's a smudge on the camera or not but I think you can even see it
in image 2.
For those of you saying how easy it is to make a pic like this, do it. Don't just say you can do it, do it and post here. I'll be wlling to bet
real life money, or even my ATS account that you cannot do it. Not even close. Not even a fraction. I think it's time to call people out on the
"this is easy to do" claim that has been said in pretty much every single UFO thread over the last 2 years.
