Does anyone know a lot about photography? This picture was taken with a digital camera and I just wondered if this kind of anomally is common. I'm not saying it's anything paranormal as I'm not a technical person and it may be quite usual for things like this to appear on the odd photo or two. The reason I found it quite strange was that out of all the photos that I had taken this should be the one that showed the anomally ( a girl fell to her death at this spot the previous year ). It could just be my halo I guess! devil.gif

I don't know alot about this type of thing either, but did the person taking the photo have long hair? or perhaps really hairy hands????

It could be the sun reflecting on the lens i guess...or it could be a spirit ball that was in movement while you took the picture..doesnt look much like a halo though

The camera strap doesn't reach over the top of the camera so I can rule that one out, it wasn't taken on a particularly bright day so chances are it's not a glare from the sun, my partner took it and she does have long hair so that could be a possible explanation.  thumbsup.gif

Hard to say.  It could be a hair, or an orb, or a reflection.  You never know.  Kinda fun to guess at it though. tongue.gif

Digital cameras are famous for their flares and orbs. The least little thing can cause some kind of picture anomaly..

looks to me like it was the lord, the guy sure does work in mysterious ways after all, and to project such a fine ray of light onto this guys head is a sure sign that his aim is not going astray, what a guy

Then let us again examine whether that is a sound statement, or do we let it pass, and if one of us, or someone else, merely says that something is so, do we accept that it is so? Or should we examine what the speaker means?

I don't see how it could be hair? Maybe a thumb or finger print? Or a smudge on the camera lens? Yeah I agree it's fun to guess at it.

Could it be that you are the Messiah that they foretold of in ancient times?

i left the edges rough (instead of blending them) so you could see it better..



p-h-o-t-o--s-h-o-p

it can be a flare, a fluke, or a problem with a digital camera.. i'm just doing this to show you the effect can be made in about 45 seconds, and 3 layers

2 layers for me.   wink2.gif

Hair, dust, the lens strap, Photoshop, or a ghost.  All but the last seem likely.  thumbsup.gif

your kinda jumpy... aren't ya?
