Me, I really don't need to check those things. I already checked all those many times as far as I could. I am still amazed how skeptics can raise questions when I analyzed the shadows and detail of the Raj and Chad pics. Run the hi res ones through Neat Image and they get even better. For the Raj pics I used the noise profile made specifically for the Dimage X at the exact settings.


But don’t you wish you knew what it appears LMH knows?

I feel that it’s beyond the realms of possibility that LMH has received all of these, “Professional” emails claiming to further advance the credibility of the entire Isaac saga, and hasn’t once thought,

“Hmm I’m 100% sure I have the real deal here, in fact I could single-handedly force full disclosure!! I may as well have them authenticated so that they are beyond reproach by handing out a couple of the ACTUAL photographs to trusted friends and experts in the relevant fields.”

Even if this entailed supervising the images every step of the way, the ends surely justifies the means?

We all know LMH is a very shrewd operator; she had to have been to attain the loyal following, semi-celebrity status and media power that she wields today. Sure she’s had her ups and downs, her wins and losses, but that’s what happens when you conduct your investigations in, “Real time” and in the public eye. (This may also explain the hesitance to publish her findings so quickly this time around, whatever those findings may be.)

If anything this makes LMH more likely to verify any evidence personally, as she’s a tough cookie and should be very hard to fool (again), remember the (Southern I think) old adage immortalised by Bush’s less than perfect recital,

“Fool me twice, fool on me.”

Or perhaps she hasn’t been fooled at all. Perhaps we are the fools and the joke is on us!!

So do we not credit LMH with practising one of what surely must be a fundamental and the most basic of protocols, i.e. get everything independently verified!! (Then ideally get at least a second -and hopefully corroborating- opinion/hypothesis!!)

Can we really safely assume that LMH hasn’t had any of the Big Basin images checked out?


Who knows, this could be why they can’t be released to the baying crowd of forum members, CGI experts etc. because they are already doing the rounds with the relevant experts.

Personally I don’t think this is the case but I do think that LMH would have had an independent analysis done on at least ONE of the original images by now, even if just for her own piece of mind before she pushes forward with any more disclosures from Isaac.

So, if you’ll further indulge me in this thought process, then I feel it at least alludes to the possibility that LMH knows, “Something” she doesn’t as yet want to reveal. “Something” she may have known since she received the Big Basin images, but that, “Something” wouldn’t keep the subscribers happy so she humoured all involved and sent a particularly nasty email to Isaac knowing full well that he is no more a whistle blower than the Big Basin Drones are, “Huge” in size?

Or maybes she pre-warned Isaac then purposefully misled the PTB into thinking that her and Isaac aren't as close as they are, or that they aren't in contact?

Maybes I grossly underestimate LMH, maybes even as I type this she’s putting together irrefutable evidence and irrevocable proof that will conclusively determine the origins and credibility of the, “2007 Drone Flap,” one way or another.
But somehow I doubt it..............

Possibly part of the reason that she has still failed to release the images is that it will prove conclusively what her unannounced status is in the disclosure game, whether that be the, “Player” or the, “Played.”

I believe what the folks in murnut’s post was trying to say is that it is real easy to hang a model, then to remove the evidence (remove the wires), then blur the edges to look “natural.”

I played with this and I am CGI ignorant. But if I can do it with Paintbrush (remove something and blur it), then someone with Photoshop can do it better.


Sure. But it's not that easy. Not only do you have to hang the object from wires but you have to make it look large and make it fit the rest of the photo. That's the hard part. It's not easy to get the lighting and shadows just right. Then there's the depth of field issues. I get a kick out of looking at the Raj pictures and studying the shadows. There is no way a hoaxer could have got them so perfect.

I saw this ufo report on Nuforc.

Quote:
Occurred : 5/11/2007 20:35 (Entered as : 05/11/07 20:35)
Reported: 5/11/2007 9:07:56 PM 21:07
Posted: 6/12/2007
Location: Santa Barbara, CA
Shape: Other
Duration:3 min
Slowly moving crescent shaped object seen for 3+ minutes then disappearing.

Myself and 3 other friends were standing outside our dorm room throwing a ball around and looked up to see an object "floating" through the sky. It was moving very slowly but not with the wind. It seemed to hover above an area about 1/2 a mile from us and then we lost sight of it in the evening sky. I know this sounds sorta hoaxy but it looked like a half moon shape with a elongated triangle protruding from the middle out between the arms; the best way I can describe it is to say it looked similar to the Klingon (spl?) ship style in the Star Trek movies I saw as a kid.

((NUFORC Note: Student report. PD))


Could (s)he be describing this?

LMH is known to discard independent analysis if it doesn't fit her goal, so it is a sure bet which way her 'independent analysis' would point. I've read somewhere recently that if you want to spread a hoax or something fishy, you write to LMH or C2C for they will publish anything. That reminds me, would someone please ask Mr. Doty about drones so we can discard this case if he confirms them for real? Though, he'll probably have some 'secret documents' with additional details... smiley

What I really mean is you can't have an independent analysis if LMH, C2C or such are anywhere in the loop. Not if it's their bread and butter.

Actually, in the Ty photos, it is not that hard. If the object is a model about 8 feet long (which is large and bulky), then it will be quite dramatic, it would fit between the foreground and background trees. It can be in a “fixed” position as long as it can “spin” and then you just have to move the camera around to get the photos you see. I believe you will find this solution can work. I am not ready to say this is the case, but I can not rule it out for the Ty photos either.

I think this is why the “experts” keep “foot hopping” with their answers. The question is, who is willing to connect the dots, when the evidence has been so badly contaminated. It has been copied, resized, scanned, cropped, copied (and who knows what all), basically manipulated until it is worthless as evidence of being a real extraterrestrial spacecraft.

The Raj drone appearance is different, the drone is not blurred. It is not as detailed as the Ty drone.

When it comes to anything CGI, I am not willing to bet any of my money. We need the original photos to really begin to know anything. Otherwise, it is pure speculation if it is fake or real. And it just does not help us to demonstrate to the world that it is real when the photo EXIF source states Photoshop.

I have a professional photog going over the Rajman/Capitola pics.
He stood in silence for 5 minutes as he went over it in front of me, he stated that there is nothing in the photo that tells him the object wasn't there as photgraphed.
He took the copies I gave him and I expect to see him this afternoon.
Oh yeah, one of his first question was did I know where, on what street they were taken.
Has anyone found that out yet ?
His comment on the BB pics was that it looks too funky to be trusted fully, with the white background it's difficult to determine if any manipulation had taken place. He said if any pics tell the story it will be the Rajman pics.
I have to agree, but that's me.

Tell him we all thought it was funky until we matched it up with Isaacs linguistics. It does look weird, no doubt. And also tell him that what looks like rust could be gold.

That California sky I am very familiar with. We did a large area here in the forum regarding the whiteness of the sky in particular. It's the kind of California smog you cannot see (opposed to smoke). Also make sure he understands that the Big Basin photo was taken directly next door to the Silicon Valley. In 1998, the population of the Silicon Valley was 2.3 million and of course that was 9 years ago so I'm sure it's much higher today. This way he will understand the air quality.

Here is another typical California white sky, which is actually the worst kind of pollution.

The Ty images are very overexposed due to haze/smog and aiming the camera at the sky. I'm pretty sure that automatic exposure settings on the camera tried very hard to get a decent image while sacrificing dynamic range (white sky levels off at 255 max).

Also of importance was the note of LMH saying that someone "adjusted" the images for clarity. That's a shame, since it rendered these images only useful beauty and not scientific study.

Atrueoriginal said:
What makes the sky white in California is smog, the worst kind - photochemcial smog or summer smog - usually the kind you can't see, which is the most dangerous. We had many days like that in Southern California each year.

The State of California just game me this tid bit -"photochemical smog is caused by the action of sunlight on a mixture of hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen. This smog contains secondary pollutants such as ozone, aldehydes and fine particles."

So essentially, it's not like smoke such as from factories - that's a different kind of smog we're use to that is harmful but not as harmful as the other. Smog from smoke is very noticeable as you stand on top of a foot hill or a mountain because you can see the layers. Also, sitting in your car, you can't see three stop lights ahead of you. It's not that kind. It's white.

Big Basin sits next to the Silicon Valley, which could easily be producing photochemical smog but then it would be blown inland eventually due to the off-shore breezes, which kept the Silicon Valley essentially pretty clean for California. The population of Silicon Valley is over 3 million people.

Fog is the first thing someone would assume but the trees are fairly visible so the fog would have been moving out. Just the same, remnants of fog mince with a photochemical smog and you'll have an extremely white sky. That's what makes it so much worse too for the Central California people because the fog is a carrier for photochemical smog.

You can see a photochemical smog in the following picture. Look at the foothill in the background. It's not green like it should be normally. And, it's not smokey brown either like a regular smog.

Right after the news broke about the Steven sighting, one of the first things I did was to check the weather report for that area. What they had that day is very typical for this coastal area. Fog/overcast lifting and burning off in the afternoon. That's your white sky. Remember that I live out here and have spent much time in the Santa Cruz and San Jose area.


Please make sure he knows these things because it was of course an issue in the photographs of Stephens and Tys both.

I found this very interesting. Keep your eye on the picture toward the end. They throw a Big Basin drone in.

Not yet, but Capitola is a small town of less than 10000 people.
I live also a town of 10000 people in France and, even if that represents much work; I think (IMHO) that a checking on the spot could have been possible.
With precise reference marks on the photographs (electric poles), to find the place precise of the photographs had been a good challenge. Moreover, that would have enabled us to make measurements on the spot.
Unfortunately, I do not know anybody (Perhaps a person on OM) living in Capitola or neighbourhood which can (which wants!!) to make this kind of tiresome checking .....

Marvin, it seems you might be letting the debunkers get to you. They keep chewing at the truth till you begin doubting yourself.

If you have PhotoShop it makes itself the default picture viewer. So when you connect your camera it automatically opens PS to view and save the pics. It then puts it's own tag in the exif. So just because the exif may have the PS tag does not mean something sneaky has been done.

I will check it out sometime in the future. I think I might even be able to locate Raj's inlaws (don't think I will but I know it could be done). I don't think it would be too hard.

Just as I try to be more open and trusting, I get these little reminders:

I was watching Ghost Hunters last night, they were visiting a Hotel in Arkansas where a con artist had pushed a fake cancer cure, and hundreds of people died.

Why would someone do such a thing (just for money)? You’ve got to know these people trusted this person with their life and then paid the ultimate price for giving that trust.

It is not the debunkers (I think you make it too simple), it is the world we live in. There is always someone who is looking to do something, for personal gain or personal pleasure.

Since this is the world we live in, my trust has to be earned.

Good job, LangLee. Yes the Ty photos are not very good (look how spoiled we are now). Ato has already explain the white background. Steven's pics corroborate the white background. Ty may have used a cheap pocket Instamatic or disposable film camera. Then LMH scanned those 5x7s. So the Hi res is actually a blow up from a small low res picture. Steven's photos are of better quality but the drone is very distant. The Raj and Chad pics are the best for analysis. Did you give your expert the Hi res large size versions of the Raj/Chad?
