I don't think anything paranormal is going on that it is pareidolia and I have several reasons why I think this. The first, in your second set the
"ghost" has less facial definition than the one that is more zoomed in does. Typically with zoom image quality, clarity and definition degrade not
get more defined notice how the "eyes" get darker. It is my opinion that when the image is being processed it is adding these features that makes
the image look the way it does... I mean you aunts face wasn't half skeletal on her wedding day was it? The processing made it skeletal by trying to
make sense of what is around it. That removes the eyes and hair from this "ghost" the processing blended the tree with the material in the tree and
half your aunts face, it's why both look the way they do, and get more defined when zoomed,
Next, what would appear to be the "ghosts" right arm is actually part of your aunts dress look at her other shoulder it has the same "wing" so
that removes an entire arm from this "ghost" so now we have a "ghost with no eyes, no hair and no right arm no face. It's a pareidolia, a very
eerie looking one but still not a ghost.
The question becomes well, what is that in the tree? Making up what looks like a dress or night gown? In doing so a full debunk can occur, sadly the
original image is so small it is hard to give a definite but still it falls into the same color range as the sky, and you can make out what appears to
be the trunk of a smaller tree to the right of the larger, it appears to be the sky through leaves and branches that make up the gown or dress, and in
my opinion that is exactly what it is as it zooms it too gets magnified out of proportion when processing tries to render the detail. Another
possibility it's Alabama they are in field, and it could be a bit of wind blown cotton caught in the trees, that processing makes appear larger than
it actually is.
When I went to college in Alabama I saw tons of wind blown cotton stuck on the sides of the road, in ditches, in trees, surrounding the cotton fields
it looked like melting snow at first glance. So there is that possibility as well.
So in my opinion pareidolia created by zoom processing, a very creepy pareidolia, but a paredolia nonetheless.
