Hi marek,

I'd definitely go for a prank since ....

... first, I wonder how girl1 could possibly see anything that shocked her .... the link to the original only showed a nearly complete black square with only the shadowy hint of a face which, at this point, could still have been girl2...

Second,

... granted that the 'person in the picture was not surely girl2' (clear only after your cleaning-up), how is it possible to 'date' a picture to 'late century' (which one ...18th? ... 19th? ) from a fuzzy partial face?

the preview in girl1 cellphone is much brighter (i did personally saw the image on her phone), i dunno why it became so dark when we transferred it to my computer.

this was i actually saw and she saw from the preview in her cellphone.(Adjust the level of the original image, based from what i did saw in her cellphone)

that's why it make so creepy/scary, all i did is to make it clear and clean it up, you could try clearing it up to. and i ddnt know how it get there in her phone, and we definitely have no images like that in our church

....Actually, my point here was that the only thing visible is the face of a young girl which, in itself, cannot be placed in any given moment in time.... So, my other theory is that the face on the photo could belong to an unknown 'girl3' standing close to 'girl2' and mistakenly photographed by 'girl1'....
But this is only my opinion and, of course I wasn't there ....

You can see all those elements in your "Clear edit Image" also

I uses Neat Image and Imagenomic Noiseware noise removal (I think your version is much sharper!)
