That's awesome. It shows how easily this can be made.
Thanks


Well that and the fact that the photos are not the original. That is the first sign anyone should look to and when EXIF data shows its unaltered, unedited, in raw format - then you can begin to pick the photo apart.

Again, you can not analyse a photo that is not the original raw image.

For example:

This photo is an original unaltered raw photo - and below it is the EXIF data for it: ORIGINAL RAW FORMAT

Now you can see the difference in an original raw format photo and a tampered with photo.

You can also take out/edit exif data.

Nice PS job.
I like how you added the depth to make it more 3D.

It shows what COULD be done.

Imagine what we could have done if we would have used a few hours?

This could even be done pretty easily with video.

I'm a graphic designer by profession and I could fake this in photoshop very easily....

Yup, it's easy to hack exif also.

Here is a link to nice piece of software.

I am no Photoshop expert but when I zoomed right in on the images I noticed alot of pixelation and blurring around the craft on all three pics and on one pic there is a broken line.I think these are fake.


Having worked with Photoshop professionally for around 7 hours a day, 5 days a week, for the last 10 yrs, I can tell you that in my professional opinion, the object is actually there. Whenever you get an image when there is lots of contrast, (i.e. dark and light), you're going to get some degree of pixelation where the two meet, i.e. the where the light edge (the clouds), meets the dark edge (the "ship"). Its just the way a photo looks when you digitize it....even when an object is actually there.

Task#1) I would seek the original photographer out and ask for negatives.

It looks to me like the object is moving in a slow trajectory from left to right. This does not rule out a model. However it is impossible to judge the distance of the craft, even w. the lamp post.

Cloudy days do not help either, as Photoshopping the sun reflecting on/off an object is much more difficult than imposing ambient light (cloudy light) which comes from all directions. And, yes, it does seem a bit odd that the object is only shot 3 times.

Jury is still out on this one for me....

Here is what I came up with, it took me no longer then 10 minutes.










[edit on 10-6-2009 by lucentenigma]


Again, having worked w. photshop for the last 10 yrs, I can tell the difference between the two objects, as the you one cut and pasted has much more defined edges. It does not take an expert to see this.

IMO the object is really there. What it is or isn't, I don't know.

Good photos. If they are real.

If these craft are not ET and they are ours, then the technology is ET. Either way it is ET in some form if these are real photos and reports.

I don't think it is an Alien FT as

1. It looks like it has a smooth bottom
2. It's flying during daylight hours
3. It has no lights

If it's not a manipulated image, then perhaps it's another Mugi Evo RC model painted black.

Take a look:

Stuff like this is very eay to do for anyone with rudementary photoshop knowledge. I've been teaching 3d and CGI for years to pro's working in films , games and TV al over the world, so I do speak from the angle of experience you may say. (Hopefully that doesnt sound big headed.)

If we cannot learn to weed out obvious fakes such as these then there's no chance for the more complex ones.
Never believe your eyes...they often lie.

Haha what may/may not be a model plane rules over what is an actual report in SC.

UFO spotted near flight that landed at GSP




Kristy Nicholas said the pilot of the Embraer 145 told flight controllers that the “strange object” he saw never showed up on his radar Friday night. The pilot reported a “missile or rocket” flying near his airplane on Friday. Nicholas said the plane, with 23 passengers and three crewmembers, had just passed 11,000 feet, going to 16,000 feet.

Not sure if anyone else noticed, but he has the original photos on the site for download. Accompanied with his exif data. I also double checked the exif data and will post a screen shot of mine.

Looks like a man made craft to me, no UFO, that is for sure. It could easily be a spin off design of a stealth bomber or something like that. In fact I could swear that some of the prototypes back in the day had that kind of shape.

It's a TR-3A Black Manta. You can barely see the tiny vertical stabilizers on the trailing edge of the craft. Also, the lack of lights on the underside seems to point to a U.S. Government craft, rather than alien. It is conventionally powered, so it does make a little engine noise, but that could have been drowned out by the storm it was flying in. Fantastic pics though, keep it up.

No offense but that only proves that the image can be faked.That won't disprove the original.

Star for you. So we now have a pilot claiming to see something and now a photograph from another party. The plot thickens....
