Claims of ghost pictures make me skeptical, too, but the hope is that some odd phenomenon can be captured on film, or on recording tape, or what ever other medium presents itself. Ahem.

In the case of the pix in discussion here, none presented much of interest. Camera straps, insects, and cigarette smoke blurred by being too close to the camera explains most, while "orbs" are simply dirt on the lenses, and so on.

For the detailed ones, a suspcion of Corel or Photo-Shop must always come first. Face it folks, in this day and age, photographic evidence no longer suffices for anything, and hasn't since we got past the clumsy cut-and-paste days of pasting Lee Harvey Oswald's head and another gun on some merc's body.

As technology gets better for faking things, the fakes get clearer, and that very clarity is becoming strong evidence against believing any picture.

I remember reading in one of those cheap fortean books you pick up in Bargain Books or Woolworths of a case in England one of those locked room type mysteries, It goes vaguely like this. Police got called to a nightclub after the place was locked up in the early hours of the morning when the alrm only to find it locked up pretty solid. After getting in they found nothing wrong but got the CCTV tapes for examination. After replaying these the culprit was clearly caught on camera inside the locked building. The big problem was that the intruder walked out the locked exit door without doing what people generally do when encountering a locked door a)unlocking it or b)opening it. The tape was taken to the BBC who determined that it was was genuine and that two images hadn't been laid over one another to create the illusion. Anyone know of any stills from this video on the net?

Wow, this is old now, I've just managed to find it again - I snapped it from the Ghostcam in Llancaiach Fawr Manor, on the BBC website, which can now be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/southeast/sites/weird/form/ghostcam.shtml

As you can see from the date, it's pretty old now. At the bottom of the pic, there's a faint outline of what looks like a long skirt, or a dress, in line with the stairs. Really freaked me out at the time. What do you think?

To be honest I can't see anything. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place though.

Can't see a thing. Sorry!

Tried changing contrast, brightness, etc, but nada.

Can you outline what you think you see?

Is it that lighter part of the wall, on the right hand side, just below the long brown patch at the corner?

I would hazzard a guess at a light effect from something between the upper stairs light and the stairs.

Do you remember seeing it move at all ?

ive had a good look at this, even put the pic into photoshop and messed with the colours etc, all i can see is the "starburst" effect, its about 2/5 of the way along at the bottom, it travels all the way up the pic to the light source.

edit> please explain further where you think is is!

Yay, Mulder's got it! Very Happy I suppose it was a bit vague, but that's what immediately sprang out at me at the time.

I think I can but if I am looking at the right thing, the line that forms the right hand side of the "skirt" goes all the way up to the roof. Long skirt!

The line on the right is the effect of the ceiling light (as someone else said) and the line on the left looks like either a reflection on the door or panelling on the wall, or just a paler part of the door. Because it appears to line up with the skirting board on the left it tricks your eye into thinking there's a longer line there than there really is.
