I've always liked this one


These guys are good. It's too bad they never leave their signature or claim their work.



Look at the peasants.. milling around.. Muwahaha




This one was found in a quarantined area for Foot and Mouth disease






Pure Genius!

I wonder why there aren't any college courses on building such elaborate and precise formations?

And that is interesting, why? Humans continually refine the art medium as they gain experience, so...?

The proof is in the pudding.

No that was
Very very interesting.

not Very very interesting, they get better every year.

The interesting was pertaining to his statement about the last picture he posted.

Sorry.. should have made that more clear. So as to not cause misunderstanding.

Thanx Shroomism...

i was hoping someone would post more pictures.
i find so many dead links when looking for crop circles... (?)

"These guys are good. It's too bad they never leave their signature or claim their work."

eye Beleave the circles ARE the Artist's idEntity.
to those who gno, the answer is Obvious...

i read somewhere OL that there are MANY designs appearing in U.S. fields.
but it seems someone is doing a very good job of keeping them out of the Media...

Has anyone heard of crop circles in the midwest?

i do not wish to debate their Origins or Validity,
i would simply like to find pix...

There are two threads of crop circle pics a little ways back...
i haven't seen many (or any?) from the states, that would be nice.

There are a few that have occurred in the US... but who's gonna waste their time on a crop that gets no publicity or media attention whatsoever?

What I mean by fake is that those images show tell-tale signs of digital manipulation.

In the second image, notice how the vertical axis of the pattern isn't perpendicular to the lines in the field as it should be (because the horizontal axis is parallel to those lines).

Also, there is no detail visible in the "flattened" areas.
And where are the shadow lines on the little "diamonds" of standing grass?
The light source is from the top of the image so where are the shadows?

The third image is a mess... it would take me fifteen minutes to make that in photoshop. These aren't professional quality "fakes".

See how the pentagram is NOT aligned with the lines in the field. Instead it is aligned with the image itself (note the perfect horizontal lines). Some of the standing grass in the middle have shadow lines, while others do not. The lines that run through the field are visible in the flattened areas and RETAIN THEIR SHADOWS. Those images also have a lot of digital "noise" in the edited areas. Anyone familiar with digital imaging will recognize it immediately.

Pictures aren't worth that much anymore. In a time when anyone with a $1000 PC can create convincing digital fakes, it's amazing that people put so much trust in pictures (or video for that matter)

Shroomisms pics are slightly better fakes, and some of them might be real pictures of man-mande crop circles. But none of the stunning ones are real photographs.
Most of them are OBVIOUS fakes, even to the untrained eye.

btw, I do think there are "real" crop circles out there. Perhaps these bad fakes are put out by "them" to stifle legitimate research...

but my theory is that they are rogue artists...

What happens when powerful digital imaging tools become available to the masses? - a rash of crop circles.

I'm just saying that some of those pictures are poorly made fakes. They got the perspective and lighting all wrong. I'm sure even you don't believe that the second and third pictures depict real crop circles.

However some of those pictures appear to be genuine, or good fakes at least...

I think crop circles are a real phenomona. There is definitely something happening. But this rash of faked photographs only obscures the truth and makes legitimate research difficult.

Agreed...
I have some pictures taken of "genuine" circles, that have shots from far away, close up, different angles.. that show all the detail of the spirals and even the multiple layers of spirals. I'll put them up later and tell me what you think.
