Could the OP still get the deleted file back from the card it was on. I'm no expert, but the original file might still be on the storage device and just the reference to the file is what is actually wiped. Anyway, there may be a program they could use to get the original larger file. Possible?


Very possible.. recuva is a great, free utility for that: www.piriform.com...

I must say.. the added fact that the source image is gone is also a bit of a suspect point... the larger image is needed because the shrunk image looks faked

I found the original finally! Unfortunately, zoomed in it looks like a pigeon or morning dove. Which is gay because I really thought it was a UFO. BUT I'm not sure, just what I think it resembles. Here's the original about 2 megabytes in size:

Well.. could be a fat pigeon..


I always get suspicious of birdly actively, when there is a lighter middle spot, as you might get from a wing flapping, catching the light a different way than the body.

But regardless, sure.. it's a UFO.. but an alien spacecraft, I would guess probably not. Unless it's flown by that kazoo guy from Flintstone.

It could be a blurd. Too bad a higher quality image isn't available.


Full sized version:



Edit...yup, it's a blurd.

looks like an insect to me.

I did a simple windows picture and fax viewer zoom on this and could see a clear rectangle of pixlation like one would see with a Photoshop cut and paste. The distortion in the image around it fits into a square or rectangle shape so I am thinking they are not from the same photo. Perhaps the digital light capture on your camera messed up. Generally I can run a 3d mesh check on these to check for fakes I am not accusing you but I am saying this spot does not conform to the pix-elation in the rest of the image. Possible data corruption suspected

It's a Bird.

It would of got my heart going too.

That original is just over 100kb in size, it's been compressed on upload.. it's a bit clearer but the odd pixelization around that object still exist.. it almost looks like some of it has been cut off
.. it's still there and more squared off

It's oddly clean how the pixelization is.. it's squared in shape, but if you look at any other part where there's contrasting color you can see the randomness of the compression artifacts.. not at all clean and square

I'm still iffy about this...

Beat me to it.. and far better worded!

The square shape is the result of jpg compression. Unavoidable.
Look at the chimney.

First, the JPEG algorithms first cuts up an image in separate blocks of 8×8 pixels. The compression algorithm is calculated for each separate block, which explains why these blocks or groups of blocks become visible when too much compression is applied.

I responded to that point and specifically mentioned the Chimney.. it's as Shirak said, the pixelation around the object doesn't conform to the pixelation in the rest of the photo.. I intentionally looked at the chimney as a reference.. the chimeny has random pixelization.. the object fits into a square/rectangle without the random edge pixelization.. unlike anything else in the image

I agree with Phage's take, does look similar, but I would rather stick with my own gesture. It's a flying turtle in it's shell.

well this is about the best I could do with
a color enhancement and zoom.
It does show an obtuse outline.
I doubt this is a bird. Look at the
rounded corners.

maybe a trash can lid suspended
between trees with fishing line.
who knows ???

It would be lovely still to have the original .. it still doesn't look right to me, but I will go with "we just don't know"

If that object truly is part of the original it is still most likely a bird.

Honored to have been shot down by the all knowing Phage

The chimney from the first version.


The blocking effect is not as pronounced in the higher quality version because the compression level is less. Blockiness in a jpg image is not an indication of image manipulation.

I just noticed the zoomed in version of the original image and I can say that doesn't look pasted, so I'm willing to admit when I'm wrong.. but it looks very much like a blurred pigeon or perhaps something large like a goose.. the "blurd" .. I stand corrected


What it absolutely doesn't look like is a UFO

The "Closer" image wasn't there when I did my initial response, I had to scroll back up to see it.

Can you upload it to photobucket or some similar site...
Unfortunately, MATS erases all EXIF data....and that is a very very important part in analyzing photos

Also,make sure it is the original, untouched photo....

ETA...Nevermind....I see some great analysis above....Yup, it is a bird
