This Photograph was taken by a friend of mine, he asked if i could find anyone that had an expert  opinion on it.

It Has NOT been tampered with in anyway apart from he had it blown up.

When I first Saw It, I thought it looked like a Priest, so I goggled Medieval Priets And Got A medieval Monk Bishop, in the Blown Up Picture You can Clearly See They look very Similar, in my opinion. What do you think please ?

PARA.

Sorry, can anyone help me to Upload this to here ?

It is meant to be between

It is meant to be between the two people standing on the right and above the girl bending forward.

Whatever it is (and I leave

Whatever it is (and I leave the verdict to the ones more versed in the photographic arts than myself) it resembles everything except for medieval bishop, be it a monk or not.

I am by no means a expert on photography,but this looks like motion blur to me.

I would guess a light source

I would guess a light source being either projected or coming from a window (some of the light is spilling onto the figure standing directly behind the girl who is bending over). If you lighten the image, the highlighted parts to the 'ghost' marry up to the wood panelling of the wall. I would also guess the same light source is responsible for the strange colouring of the upper part of the person's jeans on the far right. Was this taken from a scanned photograph, rather than a digital camera?

It could also be rainbow

It could also be rainbow colouring, caused by the light refracting on a greasy or dusty camera or scanner lens.
