Ok, I asked my husband who is a bit of a skeptic, but also a professional photographer, to take a look at the pics.
This is his response he said I could post - (yes, he emailed me from the next room, a sign of the times I guess)
"Ok, in the first 3 photos that is not any type of refractive anomaly that I can recall ever seeing. Actually seems like a light source of some kind?
During longer exposure times, distant points of light can create camera 'shake' due to the photographer having to breath, however, the pic of the
gravesite seems to show how much darker and relatively sharp the background is.
On-camera flashes (close axis to the taking lens) are notorious for reflecting all sorts of light back into the lens, bouncing off of any kind of
shiny or uneven surface like water, metal, flecks in the granite stone that are closer to the camera than the focus point so as to expand and soften
the reflection (even 'red-eye' is reflecting the blood inside of the eyeball) which is why I totally debunk 'Orbs' taken with automatic point &
Sorry, everybody should know the facts about the refractive proximity of water droplets, flying insects and/or dust in respect to camera-sourced flash
and limited depth of field, so believe it or not ... but try recreating it with a manual SLR camera set for deeper depth of field (smaller f stop)
mounted on a tripod and with higher output off-axis flash? Yeah, hard to do, I know.... Anyway, those first three pix are interesting though."
So, for what it's worth, he didn't really debunk them either.
I think they are great, thanks for sharing them.
