Enhanced by focusing only on the image
Outlined the entire image
Everything with the exception of the image in the photo eliminated, switched to B&W and outlined.
Light reflections circled. Spirit energy is light and therefore does not reflect light. We are not sure if the reflection is originating from the camera flash or the stairway light but it is clear that the image is reflecting the light.
Our conclusion is that this image is that of a solid, reflective mass and not paranormal.
This photograph was taken by an individual at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado
