|Shroud as-is negative image( left); after tone-reversal (right). Excluding photography, negative images should be seen as contact imprints, unless one has exceptionally strong grounds for thinking otherwise.|
(Yes, that gun is shown as a negative image - just like the Shroud's).
Further reading: I have posted many times before on the subject of the Shroud's negative image, observing the way that shroudology fails properly to address its obvious interpretation as a contact imprint, in fact rushing with indecent haste (and generally zero experimental data) to pre-emptively rule that anti-authenticity model out of contention. Attempts on my part to resurrect it are generally treated with condescension and mild derision by so-called scientists (whether real or self-appointed) who rarely bother to conceal their agenda-driven interest in promoting Shroud authenticity.
Here's a link to a recent posting I did (though admittedly over-long).
Postscript: here's an image for David Hines' attention on an ongoing thread over at shroudstory.com. I'll give some background later, and might even try venturing an opinion or two. For the moment, let's stick with the facts re the frozen images, before considering 'superimposibility' , "perfect matches" etc.
Here's a marked up graphic that I believe makes a point.
There was also this comment addressed to me from Thibault Heimburger MD beginning with a quotation from the posting previous to this one:
