Look at the shutter speeds in the image data? The photographer isn't panning with the 'object'. The lowest shutter speed is 1/30. In order to capture the 'object' at those low shutter speeds you would have to be panning with the 'object'. The result would be that the landscape would be blurred. Here is an image that I took of a Eurofighter Typhoon landing. It was taken with a shutter speed of 1/30th of a second and panning with the aircraft. If I had not been panning with the aircraft the background/foreground would have been sharp and clear and the aircraft would have been blurred.

Nice to see some upbeat attitudes on ATS

And nice to see that you can have an open mind, a lot of people would have bashed anyone calling this a bird and the threads just get destroyed, there is a lot of bad attitude on ATS this past year or so with people circumventing the auto censors with no real need, you can always have a heated argument without the bad language or censored bad language.

Star for you


And nice photography too

Hello Versa, I started this thread to ask my friends at ATS their opinions on whether I had captured my very first UFO pic. It seems the general consensus is that it is a bird. I still wonder how many UFO images are dismissed as birds however. I am happy to accept anyone's views, it still looks a little metallic to me but my life doesn't depend on it being a UFO.

For those kind people who asked for a larger image of my badly photo-shopped landscape, I have posted it on www.flickr.com...
It is still a relatively small image but it could be used as a desktop.

I have a 3 meg JPG that I can email so please U2U me with your email address and I will be happy to send you a copy.

Very interesting photo. It seems to be a flat saucer like shape. seems like you have something here. wonder what some theories to debunk this are gonna be

as much as i'd like to say it was a UFO, the frames 1&2 in the .gif show the 'wings up' position.
As others have stated the shutter speeds were just not right ( i know the feeling being a motorsports photographer - many a crash missed because of panning) the aperture was good for DoF.

as for the other HDR image - nice work (a slight adjustment on the mid level tones for the clouds to make them a little darker
) This is a fellow taswegian photographer that does HDR and Infrared - some good stuff ColBluePhotography

Thanks for your response lavenlaar, I had a look at your website and I must say you have some really beautiful shots their.

HDR is fascinating isn't it? I was trying to recreate the tonal range without looking over burned in the clouds but I really appreciate your comments.

Yeah, shame about the UFB

not my website... just some other photographer that i like their work. Im based in Sydney

yeah it's a shame, but suppose you could just clone it out now as to not ruin the HDR

thankyou - i could find it on google earth after you mentioned it was in the last exif gif


very nice rural area of tasmania. near the antarctic, relatively speaking.

did you know that some ufo photogs seem to have luck with UV and IR spectrum

modified digital cams (easily googled); without delving into HDR (my iphone4 has it as well),

i would guess there is some data in HDR from the IR and UV spectrum 'edges'.

excellent find. not a bird.

I'd guess that it's a bird from getting this frame from one of the gifs :



Would say that left side is the birds tail, left-top-middle is the edge of the birds wing, and right side is obviously it's head in that case.

That's a great pic you ended up with though, nice work.

Great find, Kandinsky. That is exactly what I saw, and I was going to make a little sketch to illustrate it, but the similar images with seagulls does nicely. I do have to give the OP props for supplying so much data, and making the animated gif. When viewing the each still, the direction of the blur implied horizontal movement, and the gif correlated to that perfectly. If it was a bird for instance and it was gliding in that direction you would expect to see a shape just like that with the wing pointing more or less towards you (2nd picture shows it the best). Neat post, but my vote is a bird.
