The background was optimal for doing this fakery. In the latest version of Photoshop we have a function called "Content Awareness" that is able to read, from a user made selection (say a selection of the lamp post), the surrounding pixels and the fill in the selection with the same.

It's a really really useful tool to eliminate unwanted objects in photos and I use it daily.

Unfortunately it's also so easy to use that people can make images like the OP in a minute of so.

Huh


From this prospective it looks like it belongs to the pole to its right.

In fact, if you look at the street light in the background (lower right) they both look like they have light sensors on the top.

Out of the 7 poles I see in the larger photo, this would be the only pole without a light so..........I think we can put this baby to rest and not bother MUFON.

Only it wasn't faked its the background is so bright it can wash out a foreground object.

I post an example on this post on page one of the Twin Towers

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Here is another classic example of the effect which has many threads on here




Here an example to show a shadow line washed out on the white card but shows up on the grey card it's all about exposure as are MANY of the supposed ufo pictures shown on here

I've been to Seattle and I don't recognize the place o.O

MUFON site is becoming like youtube - all sorts of crap on it, there is probably more fakes than real ones.

It's on 2nd Avenue between Spring Street and Madison Street (looking toward Madison). You can easily see the spire of Smith Tower down 2nd Avenue in the OP's picture.

I have a Google Street view of the very same light pole (and street light) in this post from the previous page:

Dude,

Your batting average is getting quite low,

Is this strike 3, you have posted a few threads over the last few days that in someones opinion that has been looking in the UFO phenomena for over 15years would say are rather lame after a good look,

Your just rehashing what MUFON should have deleted of their site unless its to show how random everyday things can be misidentified.

Keep up the searching but try to find more quality than quantity

When you are able to start your thread I hope you use the search function to see whether this already being discussed and if not and you go ahead I hope you will be showing how you were able to determine the size of the carvings you've discovered or at least explain what you mean by real photos.

Cant wait to see what you have

by real I mean these photos were taken directly by the rover on mars, transmitted to nasa and then posted on nasa.gov where we have a public database of some of the photos from mars. i made multiple copies of these photos before they were taken down. so by real photos I mean actual photos.

Which photos from Curiosity have been taken down?

I thought all of the raw images could be found here:
JPL - Curiosity Raw Images

There have been threads before about things in the sky in Curiosity images, but the ones I remember were proven to be spots on the camera lens or hot pixels (both of which could be seen by noticing the "object" shows up in multiple images, all in the same part of the frame).

I'm not saying that's what your images are (I haven't seen your images yet). I'm just saying you should search those threads to make sure.

When you are able to start you own thread, could you please provide more information about the images that you say were taken down?

photo 1 . when i first started examining this photos i didnt see anything out of the the ordinary so i tried to zoom but i could only zoom in so far without the photo becoming picilixed . so i copied it onto my system opened it and clearly zoom in over the mountains and i could clearly see 50 or more circular shaped objects of various sizes with one larger sized object in the middle at least 3-4 times the diameter of the others . and so far we dont know that "birds" exist on mars.

photo 2. when i opened this file i had to do the same thing . copy and zoom in on the mountains as soon as i did i was shocked. at perfectly equal intervals there were at least 6 huge perfect rectangles running horazontally cut in the middle of the mountain.

after i downloaded these photos i went back to nasa.gov to look at more and the photos i copied before were gone!!! im a scientist and have a bachlors in science from iusb. and i cant explain these photos.

you need to post 20 times in threads, not us respond to you.
just post replies in threads and once you hit the 20 mark, start your thread

When you are able to start your thread, please provide the file names of the images that you say were taken down. Hopefully you saved them to your computer using the same file names that JPL uses. That way it would be easier to track the sol on which they were taken.

...By the way, to post images to ATS, you can use the "Tools+" tab at the top of the ATS webpage, then "ats uploads". Or use something like photobucket (or similar image hosting site).

I work right by this UFO sighting so I went outside and took a pic with my Droid RAZR Maxx 01/11/2013 at 08:42AM. Definitely a light pole. I do not believe this person had nefarious intentions because my first attempt to take a picture my camera had issues with the lighting and voila, I had a UFO too. I hope this brings resolution.

Very good, but I think the overall exposure of the scene (not focus) could also produce the some outcome of having the street light's support disappearing from the image.

Just like the out-of-focus sky creating a blur that bleeds over and obscures the street light bracket, an over-exposed (but otherwise in-focus) sky could also create such a "bleed" that could obscure the bracket.
