Thoughts on these two pictures?

I have two pictures that would be cool if someone looked at so I know if it's anything. My brother, me, my sister and my stepfather went to a cemetery just to take some pictures and get a bit of audio. After scouring the photos I came across two that stuck out.

There was nothing that I know of when it was shot that could reflect like that. I was standing right there when the picture was taken.

Now this one, it seems normal. Like it's dust or something. Until I zoomed in on the circle.
Hard to explain but zoom in on the top left area of the circle. Should see something, but it might just be a coincidence. If someone doesn't see it I'll post what I think I see.

Other than that we caught something small yet kindof eerie on audio, but I have no way to upload that at the moment. Just thought I'd post to see if others have an idea on these pictures.

Thanks for your time, appreciate it.

nice orb pics there.
never really know what to make of orbs but they always seem to appear in fitting places.

Did you look at the second one?

It doesn't look that out of place to me, except I see what looks like a person. Once you see it you can't unsee it.

Kinda need to save it and zoom in on it to really see it.

The first picture I see a bright light in the middle tree and something a the bottom of the left tree and in the second I see an orb in the upper left..The orb is probaly nothing but the bright light is pretty strange, no idea what it could be tho.

In the first picture my first reaction was that it's a street light but there's no illumination on the ground at all. I def see an orb in the second picture. Are you seeing something in addition to?

Is tha figure of the person on the left of the tree right near/above the knot in the tree?

star and flag, and a curious question.

i'm not too familiar with your posting or occupation, yet

i was wondering what kind of person takes their family to the cemetary or graveyard late at night to take pictures.

is this a hobby, career oriented, or just a sight seeing tour?

haha, good questions.

Well I'm 21, but it wasn't my idea to go. It was actually my older sister and brother's idea. My mom and stepfather wanted to go also. But it's more of a hobby that my brother and sister are into. I find it fascinating which is one reason I went with.

On the first pic, there was nothing other than the flash that could've illuminated that. It was pretty dark there. And on the second pic I got the orb. But if you zoom in pretty far I see what looks like a person, atleast the upper torso and head.

I'm in KS visiting my mom's house so I'm trying to get on when I can. Any other questions are welcome and I'll check them next time I come on.

Many people who are interested in the paranormal do.

My 12 year old daughter loves it, has many ghosthunts and late night cemetary pics under her belt.

Graveyards can be the most peacefull places on earth at night.

pic no.1 i would go with reflection of the flash (similar stuff used to happen to me in night shots. it reflects off god knows what, but it does)

pic no.2 looks like little panda head looking somewhere to the left

as for orbs, i always like to compare;

so, my guess is panda lookalike ground dirt particle

I am more intrigued with the bright orb in the first image. If it is not a reflection and I don't think it looks like it - then it is very interesting. As for the second image - a typical orb that could be dust but not always. I don't see a image of a person but if I look close enough at the trees you can make out forms - most likely just shapes of the branches and leaves. I have had several paranormal experieces and am always interested in knowing what others experience. It would be nice to get a zoom on the second image with the large orb. For those who photograph in hopes of catching orbs, spirits etc., a good idea to make sure the lens is clean before photographing. Thank you S @ F

Well, me, my sister and my mother went back to the cemetery earlier in the day. I think the figure looking thing was a headstone with flowers on top in the middle. So I've figured that out.

But I can still see the person in the orb in the second pic. If you zoom directly into the orb, it's at the top, just left of the center.

The best way to test if the anomaly on the first picture is a light reflection or not is to go back and take more pictures from the same spot.

I love looking at out-of-the-ordinary pictures and even though I'm not a photo expert I try to give it a shot at times

When I looked at the first picture with the bright light I thought at first it might be a lamp post further down in the area as it appears quite small and would explain not giving off any illumination on the direct area. If it would it most likely would have illuminated the other side of tree/leaves which is obscured with a thick leaf layer. If it was close enough already. Standard street lamp posts don't give such bright lights but lamps used at construction sides or around football fields do and are viewable from a great distance.

Zooming in however I didn't see any 'hole' between the leaves at that bit and the light appears to be in front of the leaves and not behind it in the distance. That leaves a possible reflective surface lit up by the flash.

I find it hard to make out something of the second picture as the colors (the red around the orb area) might play tricks with my eyes making me see things that might not be there while looking for a recognizable pattern. Also the reddish colour of the night sky caused by the camera might also be responsible for the orbs in some way. I thought a possible camera flare as there seemed to be 2 orbs more vague next to the obvious but the size/positioning seems a bit off for that. Orbs can be caused by many factors (I sadly discovered on my own picture tours at night) and some of them are hard to rule out.

The real picture looks really interesting, however the second looks more like something from the camera itself than an actual out-of-the-ordinary picture.

My apologies if my interpretations aren't correct, as I said I'm not much of a camera expert, just trying to make out of what I see
You learn as you go!

The light in the 1st picture is most likely the flash refleting off an insect.

The 2nd pick is the flash reflecting off a tombstone or something on a tombstone in the background.

But htanlc for posting the pics!

Sorry for no updates, I was busy. I'm now back in North Dakota.

We did get a few good pictures elsewhere but I left the real good one back in KS. I'll have my mother email it or something.

The first pic could be a reflection, but after scanning tons of pics with insect reflections that was the only one of its kind, and at the time I didn't see anything there that could've reflected that. KS has really huge banana spiders and moths that could reflect, but that's no moth. And I'm sure it isn't a spider or an egg sac. Besides it would have to be an awfully huge insect or something.

The second pic could be nothing, I agree. The only reason I posted it. I thought it was dust, and it could be. Was when I zoomed in on the circle I saw what looked like the torso and head of someone inside the circle. You might have to save it and really zoom in on the circle. Once you see it it's hard to unsee. It's towards the top just slightly left of the center. I find it hard to believe it's just a random arrangement of pixels. But it could be.

I got some audio from one place, but there was really only one or two things on it that I really need to relisten to with my good headphones. My sister got a bunch more audio but I don't have the recorder, and I was having trouble uploading audio from it.

There is a theory that when the physical body dies the energy is stored as a light that escapes out from inside of the brain and becomes an orb. According to this theory the light is then free to roam and can influence others.

A graveyard is an excellent place to look. One time I went to the cemetary to video tape and I found it very odd that all of my footage was distorted as if the same thing that would happen if you took a magnet to a cassette tape. Most of it was un usable and missing information. However the parts of the tape where I was not filming the cemetary came out just fine. Thats a bit off topic, but worth considering.

I have some wonderful photos of some of my friends and I playing music at the Garden of the Gods with so many orbs appearing in front of objects and people. So, just hinting that I think that they are attracted to ceremonial togetherness, people or music.

the second picture..... top left corner, looks like some kinda face with a pumkin cut mouth lol! the face seems to be made out of the red pixels.

Just looks like an artifact or probably a piece of particulate matter, that's all orbs are. You can get the exact same result with no spooky paranormal mumbo jumbo needed, of course half of making these orbs even remotely believable to the paranormal believers is in the atmosphere the pics are taken in....

The orb in picture number two seriously looks like the earless face of a panda bear to me. It's cute.
