    We were sitting at Penn Station waiting for the Amtrak train to send Ashley back home. She came to spend a few days with us. (She is my son's girlfriend). My son is very camera shy and she wanted a pic of them together. I pulled out my camera and snapped this picture. I got home and mailed it to her. Looking at it carefully, I can not make out what is the shape standing behind him. Is has a perfect hand, but the face looks weird. What do you think?

    It's a guy with a hoodie. Lots of them around here in the cold and wind we've been having, and you keep them on inside till you are warm.

    I bet your camera has an auto focus tingamajig and it "latches" onto the focal point and makes the background less intrusive, Nice shot of kids though.

    If it was a ghost do you think it would be transparent and not black? it's kinda freaky looking. My daughter just got to Penn Station about an hour ago, she made it home okay.

    I don't see the hand that you do Maride, but I do see a part of a hand, like someone is hugging the tall guy with the hoodie as they walk away from the camera. It's all good, nothing ominous. I have a weird picture I took this Christmas too. I'll share it as soon as I find it.

    No way That's not a real pic. When zoomed in the pixels are off. It has been ovelayed in to the original.

    I lightened the photo as much as possible and the image really frightened me. I'm sure you would have noticed a monster standing so near. I wonder what it really was?

    Is a digital photo. That can not happen with them. Plus, the finger looks too real.

    If you back to page 1 and look at the original photo, the pixels look fine. The changed occurred when the photo was made lighter by someone else.
