I have this picture that's been keeping me up at night trying to debunk it myself, I've thought about every possible outcome as to why this discrepancy appears on this photo and i am all out of theories.
First let me give you a little background on the night this was taken.
I was out Saturday night with my significant other, nothing out of the ordinary except the next day i would be turning 21. After leaving the theater around 1 or 2 in the morning we headed to my car to go home. She ran to the car and locked me out thinking it would be funny, that's when she took out her phone and snapped a few blurry pics.
Now if you take a look at the picture you can see a silhouette standing in front of the car window, that's me trying to get in. You can see the lights of the theater in the background and her hand on the bottom left as she was snapping pictures. There's also a large tree on the top right side and the window of the car is rolled down about an inch. Between me and the tree appears to be a discrepancy in colors.
The night after this picture was taken is when it was brought up to my attention. I figured i'd use my knowledge in graphic design to see if i could debunk it.
Here are some of my observations:
1. I mentioned there were a few pictures taken at this exact time so i did what anyone with common sense would do and examined the others. The rusty orange color does not appear in any of the other pictures taken before and after this picture was taken thus ruling out reflections of surrounding objects.
2. The rusty orange color does not match any part the background, you can see a tree behind it which was no more than 10ft away from the car the colors should not have been so off the color spectrum, night and day difference.
3. If you look closely there is a clear distinct line outlining the head of the entity, that's no distorted random reflection.
I'm all out of theories as to what this might be, please let me know what you think, have you encountered anything like this before?
