I Need An Expert To Tell Me What This Picture Is....
I took this picture years ago. I've never found an explanation for it. I am posting a link to my original upload of my picture and you will be able to see the details of the photograph, the camera I used, the ISO, etc.

Let me tell you a couple of things. First of all, I AM a photographer. I have taken ten's of thousands of pictures with this camera. NEVER ONCE has this camera taken another picture like this, so this is not a defect. Second, don't bother responding if you're going to tell me it's photoshopped. Why? Because this picture was taken in RAW format, and I still have the original.

Anyone who is truly serious in trying to figure out what this is, is welcome to inspect the RAW picture, which I can email to them upon request. And third.....you need to understand where this picture was taken.... This link will tell you the history of the place.

REMEMBER...I'm not here to argue, defend my picture, or convince you....I'm only looking for answers.


There are 3 pictures here....my camera took a "double shot" you can see the time difference between the 2 pictures if you click on the "full details page".... One picture came out "normal" the other didn't, and the 3rd picture, the black and white one is one that I enhanced to bring out detail in the picture.

Interesting! Good luck solving that one!

My camera has never picked up anything like it.

My guess it's not a 35mm film camera.

Well it's a digital camera, chances are that's a glitch on one of the microprocessor chips, you know? The thing's basically a mini-computer

Alright my pic is of trees and the warp effect is going on.

yours has a more complete circle/fish eye effect going on...

but the bending of the forest is there...

My before and after picture had no such bending...

Its cos when you took the pic you moved the camera just enough to have the bending effect captured.

Thats what caused mine... and i'd assume thats what caused yours...

Mine was by accident

I'd say it has to do with the light conditions which are the same in my pic... and the focus trying to grasp on to the vertical trees and becoming for lack of a better term... "comfused"

I uploaded it as a custom smilie... but you can see it faster in the link above

Here it is as a custom smilie

I believe you didn't fake it but it looks like you took a picture holding a glass tube up to the lens

Just offering suggests, no worries. It looks like a post-processing effect is what I am tryin to say, you know? There's a gimp/photoshop filter that does exactly what your pictures show, so I speculate that somehow something like that happened on the camera itself, especially if it's 5 years old! That's pretty ancient for technology heh

I have a friend that has many of these type of shots.

In some you can see what appear to be beings. Moving through the scenes.

Don't worry about the doubters OP... Many people have similar unexplained shots.

Thanks for the pic. I can see a slight resemblance, however, the "matter" that shows in the black and white picture is definitely not present on yours. I think this is certainly a viable explanation though...thanks again

Oh I agree totally... But when you are hounded by pseudosceptics sometimes people stop sharing and just give up.

Hence my encouragement to OP.

yeah there are differences.

But I think the reason my pic is distorted is the same as yours.

and the "matter" you describe is just the 'motion trail' of the objects... rocks, trees, etc etc being highlighted with the B&W filter.

your welcome hf
