    Impressive! With a 24mm, you can tell the tiny little dot (almost 500m away?) to be a suspicious ghost?

    I supposed those guys, who seems to be performing some basic rituals, are praying to 'them'?

    ...okay, serious now hor,...that dot DOES resemble a lady!

    What I really missed most, is my first SLR. An Olympus OM2 with the Zuiko 35mm f/1.4, back in 1982!

    hahaha, considerd sharp for a 1.4 shot at Wide abgle, as usua, got abit CA , but its ok at wide apertures, at your f3.2 shot the CA is gone. Bro, the GHOST looks more like a Banner u know ? U know those banner with strings and then tied to the tree, the wind was blowing it abit outwards. Maybe since u stay there u should go down now and have a look from opposite the road where that guy was walking in the f3.2 picture, If the white stuff is not there . . then . . LOL. if its there i am pretty sure its a banner being blown by the wind

    Hi bro james,

    Actually no need to discard/sell off the lens, and don't even need to have tailsman.

    I believe we can capture ghost(s) if we are fated to shoot at the time, place and circumstances. All cameras digital or analog, and lenses are able to capture ghosts (not referring to the technical errors for example flares...)

    I was lured into infrared photography becoz my friend capture a ghost (looks like a monk on a burning stake... his lower torso was missing just like the lady ghost in the photo) in ancient ruin of Ayutthai in Thailand. His was taken in the hot afternoon... He swore that he did not "edit" it and that during that time lapse he did not see that thing!

    HaimE, may i know that place's address?

    I would like to go there to shoot infrared, maybe can have her as my photography model. Of course go there in daytime . Anyone interested to come along?

    Strange... google map does not show the Blk 268..

    streetdirectory.com shows the Blk 268's location @ http://www.streetdirectory.com/asia_...l_site_115498/

    So, it was on the field next to the Singapore Boys' Home?

    Thanks mate! Pin-pointed that Blk 268's location in Boon Lay Drive... will go and shoot on a sunny day... and if i capture it... i will post it here as well as in the IR forum

    So far i am not successful in capturing any ghosts in my D70-IR except my Coolpix 4500 (normal colour photog) which i caught an orb in a famous haunted cemetery in Edinburgh at midnite in 2004.. but it ain't anything compared to my friend's awesome capture of the ghost in thailand.

    You might want to contact Nikon Japan regarding this "Ghosting issue", they might come out with a new firmware to solve it.

    Eh.... people.... I'm not sure if I am looking at the right spot, but if you look carefully, it looks more like a guy responding to nature call, and doing his business at the tree.

    Looks like water ponding. White due to sky reflection.

    Hmm I live at Blk268A and I did some night IR shots but seen nothing recently :P
    Anyway the stretch of road is pretty bad...in the last 6 months itself there were quite a number of accidents.
    No deaths from what I recall but most of the time, the driver lost control of their vehicles...

    Let's meet at Boon Lay MRT station then we walk there. Noticed a lot of greens along the way as according the the streetdirectory map.
