docyabut2, I'm not the kind of person to call out people publicly on Internet forums, but a quick examination of the photo makes me very suspicious of its origins.  

You are right to be suspicious about how "perfect" the shoulders of the figure are.  They are in fact much sharper and clearer and higher-definition than the photograph they appear to have been superimposed upon.

And that makes me think this is an outright fake and not just a case of everyday pareidolia.

Sorry if this comes across as harsh, but we do get a lot of hoaxes and frauds in this forum.

Not harsh at all. This is a down right hoax. And a poor one at that. This is a Ghost from the IPhones app called "Ghost Capture." Take a gander at this:

Thanks all for the info, its what we wanted to find out.:):) it was not my daughter`s sister in law that took the picture, but the renters at the tattoo place, and maybe they were trying to pull a fast one.

It looks just like a drawing.

I give the hoaxer credit for making it dim enough to make it subtle.

I may still have some doubt, my daughter`s sister in law when in opening her business bought the small mall, and the renters of the tattoo shop are complaining it is haunted. A question if it is a picture inplanted on a  iphone, how come the figure does`nt go down below the window.?

Why does it being done on an iPhone mean that the figure should go down below the window?

Look at some of the ghosts from the iPhone ghost app posted above.  Note how many of them aren't full figures, just head and shoulders, like the 'ghost' in your image.

The problem with the advancement of technology is that even if someone DID manage to catch a real manifestation, there will forever be a divide between fiction and fact, I don't believe that is a real ghost image but you never know!

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air and deep beneath the rolling waves, in labyrinths of coral caves, The echo of a distant tide comes willowing across the sand and everything is green and submarine...

Gee guys the haunting does seem some what legit, because they are calling in a Paranormal Society to investigate.

Why?  There's nothing "perfect" about it.  It's merely a photo that has been cropped like the other photos in the iPhoto app to appear as a head and shoulder like the others.

What "perfection" do you think you are referring to?

What I saying is if it was inplanted image, how could it be so perfect not to overlap the botten of the window?

What's to explain?  It's easy to manipulate a photo like this.  How do you explain how the image I'm posting below is "so perfect" not to "overlap the bottom of the window"?

Do you think that's a real ghost photo because it's so "perfect" not to overlap the bottom of the window?

I would like to see the picture. If the phone has browsing capability you can just send it to yourself via email. Although often times why do these ghost pictures seem to be naturally explainable light reflections and such.
