There is another way of viewing photographic data during analysis. That
is to convert the photo to a negative image. I guess it is because of the way our mind perceives
and processes images beyond our conscious control. I usually see things in a new light if the
negative reinforces what I perceive in the positive image. So, let's take a look at the creature
and the wide angle comparison photos.
The creature exhibits skeletal structure. I find that very interesting. The wide angle
comparison certainly reinforces the differences in the area of the herd of creatures. The creature
popping out and up in the bottom of the last wide angle exhibits interesting structure, also. These
are similar to positive and negative comparisons of living structures on Earth. Background and inanimate
objects don't usually have these characteristics that I'm aware of. We should also take a look at a negative image
of the creatures we observed in the other section of this high resolution photo. I think this photo is a great example of how the background
can disappear. It makes it far easier to study these anomalous creatures. The impressions on the surface where they are submerged are
easier to distinguish.
