  • Natural.... There's a bay window about 5 feet in front of him Nov 29 '19 at 5:24
  • You're saying there was no artificial light source? Does the camera have an LED flash (like many phone cameras do)?

    What photo app were you using? Are you sure a filter couldn't have been applied accidentally? And why are you showing a screenshot of a photo instead of the photo itself? Could the effect be caused by the viewer you're using?

  • I took the picture with my phone. The flash wasn't on,no photo app,No filter. I took several pictures ones before and after all look normal. I took screan shot because said original pic was too big. Also my phone camera is very basic. Nov 29 '19 at 10:09

Looks like a software issue, maybe multiframe fusion gone wrong because of the strong motion. A lot of phones are doing multiframe HDR by default, without necessarily telling the user about it.


I would say your phone erroneously applied some kind of filter...Do you have filters available on your phone that look like that?

  • No its a really basic phone. I don't do filters eaither,plus the pics before and after are reg...They are posted above. Thank you though. I'm trying to figure it out :/ the closest thing I found is purple fringe, do you think it could be? Dec 6 '19 at 19:03
