So what are those flecks (circled?). Read on for a possible answer, one that is TESTABLE, given (hopefully) cooperation from the Turin custodians and the Vatican. Late addition: here’s a ‘clean’ view of the lower half of the above field … Continue reading
Here is a screen grab from a fairly recent (2008) review by Faccini, Fanti et al.(pdf), the first two of whom I have strongly criticized previously for making extraordinary unsupported claims re scourge marks on the Shroud. (I’ve since been … Continue reading
Why there is a pressing need for higher definition Shroud images to be placed in the public domain (Barrie Schwortz’s STERA please note).
Mario Latendresse’s Shroud Scope images are fine as far as they go. They retain high definition, aka high-resolution (HD and HR respectively) up to to their top level of magnification. But they lose resolution and become pixellated if one tries … Continue reading
Those of you who have been following this series of posts using the magnificent Shroud Scope will probably have noticed that I have played around a little with brightness and contrast. My favourite multipurpose setting in MS Office Picture Manager … Continue reading
Let’s take a closer look at a subset of bloodstains that STURP says were imprinted before the body image… (Warning: this post is not for those who are convinced of the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin)…
(Skip to Approach below if you are familiar with Shroud controversy, and simply want to know what’s new in this posting that could justify its choice of title). We are told repeatedly that the bloodstains on the Shroud are underneath … Continue reading
Shroud of Turin: one man’s scrutiny and interpretation of what he calls “clack” (i.e. dribbles of reddish-brown pigment) in real time
“Clack” is the term I have coined for the reddish- brown puddles, trickles and smudges on the Shroud of Turin. Some describe them as blood, even though their uv/visible spectrum is atypical of blood, causing the late Alan Adler to … Continue reading
Shroud Scope 10: my very own gallery of 20 close-up views of the Shroud – all lightly photo-edited for optimised colour-differentiation
Note added October 7, 2016 This posting from some 4 years ago is one of my most visited, and indeed I use it myself quite often when needing, as is often the case, to differentiate between blood and body image … Continue reading
