why does it have a transparent look though? could that be down to the camera on the phone? on the originals it seems to get stronger and look more like a face?

As Aqualung has already stated, it's mainly due to the low quality resolution of the picture. Once you start enhancing pictures and the highlighted elements become more pronounced, it produces a certain translucent quality which gives it that "washed-out" look.

But as it turns out... I just don't see the face(s)! :roll: :wink:

The photo shop processes that I've used have lightened the image too and thats given it more of a tourqoise, lime green and pink appearance.

If you like we're not looking at the real image anymore at all, we're looking at new ones that have been created from the originals. That in itself is open to question as to whether or not they should be considered evidence of anything as we're relying upon a mathematical reinterpretation of an original poor quality image.

If I wanted to I could draw another head on it for example and so the James Randi's out there once again would claim that even putting it in a computer package to enhance it is dodgy.

Of course it doesn't matter cos its not a ghost anyway, its a thing on top of a cupboard. :wink:
