Many pictures like this have been circulating around the net as of late. They are usually claiming to be of paranormal nature… This one is from 1975: The Worstead Church in Norfolk… Taken by Peter Berthelot… This image has had my attention for a long while now. A part of me wants this image to be real… I mean REALLY want to believe it. But as the rule goes when in doubt rule it out. The reason there is doubt is the following…
- The image was taken on film, the grain pattern shows to me high speed film.
- There is light focus and not sharp focus on all subjects.
- This is a tight shot and not wide so I can not see if there are light sources aimed to the figure to on the second pew. But from what I can tell there is light bleed on the subject and it is reflecting on the wood of the pew.
In my opinion, this is a blow out. because of the high speed of the film the light is bright but a light source hit the person in the second row and since it is not balanced it made a bright blow out. if access to the negative is attained you could probably burn it in and balance the image. Again though this is my opinion based on what I have seen. I could be wrong! But I do not have access to the original. What do you think? Would love to know some other opinions… Because I want this to be real!
