Were you smoking while taking the third and fourth photo?

The second photo looks like chemical drops or air bubbles during processing.

Had you polished your lens recently? The third one looks like it could be streaking.

were you perhaps in an ancient Indian burial ground when you took any of those pics?

second photograph has good contrast. like the foliage. mature garden. just to the right of that lovely tree, it looks like a person, bending a little, shooting a picture!

the 'six spots' don't add anything, except spoil the picture. Hazzarding my opinion.

.....wait, wait, i just realised, what kind of forum it is!....ha!
that explains the oddity.....

There was a program about "orbs" on one of the channels of the discovery package. To recreate the effect the two photographers took a dirty door mat and put it on a table. The picked up the mat, flapped it in the air a couple of times, then put it on the table again. They began taking snapshots from different angles and what do you know? The door mat was extremely haunted. There were "orbs" flying everywhere.

I love the photo where he draws a centaur that way.
