I did this analysis of the Peter MacNab (Nessie near the Castle) photograph which IMO boosts its credibility.

So you don't think the discrepancy between the Whyte version and Mackal version has anything to do with the camera lens?

There is much more visible in the background in the Mackal version.
I'm thinking two different cameras with different mm lenses.

What size lens was on his fixed-focus Kodak? Do you know what model it was?

Reason of edit: completely massacred the word discrepancy. :]

Not a lot and what I spend on trips and equipment to Loch Ness outweighs it substantially!

Plus, I'm going to add what I was also thinking:

I'm thinking two different cameras with different mm lenses.
...and of course, the slight different orientation when taking a picture of the same thing; with two cameras, that have different lenses.

A wave that looks like it produces its own wake, yes.

I spend a lot of time on the water and I've lost track of the number of times my buddies and I have pointed out things that could be confused as 'sea monsters' to the inexperienced - birds, fish, wakes, logs, waves, turtles, light, other boats, etc. etc.

Hello,

The creature is in the same spot on both pictures when overlaid, it would have moved enough to have been noticed if MacNab had spent X seconds switching, focusing and snapping on another camera. I don't know any more about the Kodak.
