Good day Sir! This is Don Ranain from the Philippines. I would like to submit this picture of my niece while she was at an outing just 2 years ago. The beach was a bit isolated so there were a few people living there. A friend of her took a picture of my niece, herself on an isolated place near the beach. She admits only three of them were there on that part of the beach so they were startled to see the image of a man or boy (on the right side of the picture) and his lower body seems to be missing or maybe hidden behind that plant, when, they uploaded the pics on the PC. It's a low resolution photo (since it was taken using a cheap China phone--a Nokia imitation) so I hope to see your analysis on this.
By the way Boss, your site is just simply spectacular. Stay safe and more power!
P.S. I am a graphic artist and I tend to be critical when it comes to ghost pics but when I saw this picture from a cheap mobile phone and I know low resolution images from such phones are impossible to edit, I was a bit mortified when I first saw this I couldn't sleep. You and your colleagues are better than this so I thought you might help me.
Well, first of all, it is possible to edit low resolution pictures, but I'm not entirely certain that's been done here. In fact, I can't really find any real evidence that this picture has been edited at all. Not to say that it hasn't, but from my limited experience, it looks unmolested.
All right, this picture intrigues me. I've played with contrast, brightness, gradient maps, and other photoshopping tricks, but I've been unable to come up with any additional details other than it appears that the figure is wearing a knit-cap, has a bare-elbow, and I've pulled up some hair details.
Of course, as already noted, the figure is disproportionate and appears to be only half there which leads to the following possibilities.
To be faked, the subject would have to be either a dwarf or an amputee or standing in a hole. The figure might also be sitting on his/her knees to appear out of proportion.
I am very interested in this picture. I'll stop short of calling it genuine as it is very difficult to get details from a low resolution image.
Possibly a ghost.
