I have a question I want to ask, but first I need to know something.
What is the coin in the close-up of?
Lighting is important and can change the look of anything. And yes, if that were the only blob in the image some would argue that it is a crater with a discoloration on the inside. The dark line around the glue could be raised or a drop off. Now look at the total image and tell everyone how you can tell it raised.
PVC residue is emerald green to very dark green. Dirt is black. So are shadows. I believe these are shadows.
If the light is coming from the south then it would look like it's raised.
Did you used various lights for this picture at different angles and would that explain the shadows in different positions?
