Hello RoScolaz, I would like you to try something on your work. Take the original and turn down the white, The white is affecting the results. I would
suggest to try 200. White goes from 0 to 255. 255 being the brightest. Tone it down and reprocess the print. You can even try to mask the white out
completely and run it again. Don't worry about the white, it is a reflection and everyone agrees to that. You can pick that whit and mask it to black
and run again. See how it will change your work. Sometimes I even step down the white 1 level at a time. Ok, this means that you have to find all the
colors of the white and step them down one at a time. If any of the white is at 255 then it is what I call burnt out. That has to be forgotten and
masked or let it run. I find most of the time I can turn it down and get a better photo.
You do remind me of someone else I know but that's another story.
For now we can look at the processed photos as a collection. For those who don't understand why we do this, it is easy. Rather the craft is real or
fake we all build up a library of processed photos. Myself, I have thousands. I also like to process known items. Like real plasma balls or Chinese
lanterns or military jets, helicopters, fire, soap bubbles, lights of every known design. This gives us a data base to evaluate our work against.
I would suggest for you to start with a very well known. A burning candle. Make sure when you do your gif that the first photo is the candle as is,
then run the filters on that photo and add them to the gif. What did you learn?
Back in 2009 when I started Deuem, I looked at what was going on with message boards like this and found out that most people only offer an opinion.
Anyone who is willing to step forward and offer some type of work is in a different class. Call this the UFO debate team. These are the people that
earn the right to comment and suggest opinions. On either side of the debate!. For a lot of people reading this, I have found out that they want to
get involved but just don't know how. The very first UFO study I did was with a clear piece of plastic tapped to my screen, frame by frame I marked
it, then measured it with a ruler. Hi tech? No, but it is a start. Over time you can get deeper or find a new hobby. I got deeper.
You see, rather this UFO is real or not does not matter to us. What matters is how we look at it and what work we can do to generate information to
add to the data base. I put a Deuem percentage on my findings, you can also do that. 0% Fake-100% Real
Just so you know where I stand on this photo, I have not declared it to be a hoax, nor do I think it is a pie tin. I do say there is a problem with
the timing and that I can prove by using the sun. By the way I have read the entire thread, all 48 pages and looked at all findings. I can not find
evidence that proves it is 100% fake. Yea there is a lot of circumstantial findings but not the loaded gun.
If I used the same logic with every UFO photo, we should claim them all hoaxes and shut down all investigation work. One thing I have learned from
this thread is that if I ever get the chance to film a real UFO ( what ever it is ) I am going to have to think very hard about where to post it.
Maybe I won't. Maybe that's what TPTB want! I don't know.............
