Maybe, I accidentally photographed an unidentified flying object (UFO).
What I know about photography tells me this should not be a "technical" error...

So, what do you think is the best way to sell these kind of photos? Editorial on Alamy or...?

Who knows? ;-)

Photo doesn't have stock quality, but I have RAW format to prove it's authentic...

Really!? But how to check it or prove it, if this can be UFO... ?
I saw these days many "extraordinary UFO photos" over Internet, many of them are quite similar to mine, all are JPGs, but I have RAW and also original photo is still in camera...

The tabloids like national enquirer publish those kinds of photos, send them an email or give them a call and see what they say.

Thanks!

If they tell me that is valuable... I'll post here!

Otherwise, I can only embarrass myself here... :-\

Whole afternoon I'm trying to get same effect onto my camera... With water drops, dust, etc. but nothing even close...!

Jeez if there is anything worse than a so-called "photo of a UFO",  it's someone claiming they have one, but not showing it to you.

Before to put this image on any stock I would propose it to some daily paper or better to some weekly magazine (I think that a monthly is not the most adapted for the subject).
Then I would contact some UFO specialist(s), some UFO association(s), or similar.

And why not the MIB?

I just ask you do you know I good way to publish or sell this kind of photos...? I am not searching for proof is it or not...
Of course that I will show you here, if someone who need or is familiar with this kind of photo tell me that photo has "a weight"!

Seriously - I doubt you could get anything for it unless it's really spectacular.   As you can imagine, people contact the tabloids every day with "UFO photos".

people contact the tabloids every day with "UFO photos".

Which are nearly always insects caught in motion - apparently sharp in one plane but blurred in another. Insects close up can look like weird objects in the sky. And with no way of gauging the distance they can look more distant.

Interest in these sorts of stories peaks when there is a book or a studio movie being promoted.

I have RAW format to prove it's authentic...

Lol.

If you have doubts about what's in the picture and you think it's really interesting and different from what's usually seen try contacting a pilot from the Air Force, or a pilot from an Airline company.

They are the best ones to say something because they have seen every type of airplanes in the air, from every possible angle, in every weather and light conditions possible and I don't think they are BS people due to the personality requirements necessary to their professions. Plus they are interested in everything that flies.

These people could be the first ones to give you some credible info about what's in your picture and explain why it can be an airplane or if it's an airplane that it's a very strange image which opens the door for the UFO credibility. Even if it's a Earth UFO.

With this info you may then contact an expert in the UFO field.

All these informations may give a certain credibility to your photo and it's that credibility that may add sale value to it. Without it it will be only one more photo ready to be shredded to pieces in 5 seconds despite the interest it may have.

90% of ufos in pictures are insects.

But could they be extraterrestrial insects?

90% of ufos in pictures are insects.

..and the other 10% are aliens in spaceships with malfunctioning cloaking devices.  :D

It is true, the first guy who is able to shoot "confident alien businessman" and "happy seniors boarding UFO" will make a lot of money.

The only thing I know is that it will be interesting to hear your comments ... :)
We have here lot of completely different characters, from scientific population to totally religious people who who believe in the apparitions of saints...

So, "insect theory" is something what can be true...
But I was trying to do the same several times in place with lot of insects and I didn't catch anything even close to object on that photo...

That photo was sky above the sea, there is not lot of insects.... Also there is reflection of the Sun on that object... Object is very symmetric...

Do you know for sure how to change and save a RAW image without any sign of manipulation...?
