I am betting on pixelation:
picture above is the 'underwater city' and below is 'mars city'... see any similarities?

ok, so these are the pics from this herald de paris article....
Here's a zoomed in section of the fifth picture....
Here's a zoomed in section of the second picture. I had it rotated 180 degrees, but it won't work on here, so you gotta rotate it your selves....
put em next to each other you can see the same structures.
this one just looked like a sphere shining in the sun....
I hope this thread worked. Rotate that picture and compare.

Well, if fake (which I guess it is) then it's not just a picture with compression artefacts: the effect should be on the entire photo, covering the clouds also, not? In this case the effect stops where the clouds begin.
Of course, adding a cloudy sky on top of a glitched photo isn't hard to create either.
I must say to me it seems highly improbable these pictures are real, given the similarities with typical photographic errors and the extremely symmetric pattern of the alleged city...
I'm rather certain however ancient cities are still waiting to be found underneath our oceans. Just really doubt this is one of them.
Will wait for more info on this one, but it doesn't look too promising.
About the Cuban site: haven't heard from it anymore in years, an informational update would be most welcome...

Hate to burst everyone's bubble but it definitely looks to be a hoax. Besides the aforementioned 'google earth hand', you can find EXACTLY the same thing all over Google Earth. A prime example is the coastline around Istanbul, Turkey. I've also found some near Cairo, Egypt and off the coast of South Africa(although I'm sure there's plenty more).
Besides, the 'researchers' asked for donations in that article. Any self-respecting and properly DEGREED professional would be going the official route to get funding(i.e. government grants, backing from universities, etc.).

Look at the white hand mouse cursor, this is completely amateur. Its as if someone used a Google Earth Photo (screen shot), flattened it, used that as flooring texture, took a photo of a sandy shallow sea bed, merged them both and added some "Microsoft" clouds:
Complete nonsense, seems to be that a LOT of news companies see the potential "pay per hit/click" that they can get in ATS. Imagine all that traffic from gullible conspiracy theorist, each clicking on their website URL? The best free marketing and advertising campaign ehh?
All these "all of a sudden the biggest find in history" stories being pushed and force fed all over the internet in order to clog up the researchers who are trying to analyze the Norway Spiral. Massive amounts of disinfo counterintelligence SPAM!

French eh? Paris eh? Resourceful eh? Credible eh?
Not in my books.
This is a hoax.
