    Looks like someone messed up the film

    To recreate, just use a lasso tool in PS and the feather the selection (or not if you want a hard line.
    After you have your layer masked, start playing with the saturation levels.

    It looks like double exposure as well.
    It looks more intentional though.

    It's hard to say.

    In the top one, I see the corner of a wall in the yellow area.
    The bottom one looks like stairs in the yellow, and that they definitely used flash.

    I looked at the site they came from, and saw a few more that had different things that looked like motion blur of a light. I wonder if these could be shot with ambient light, long shutter and then flashed?

    There is a lot of cool stuff on that blog. Too bad I can't read it.

    I had a light leak on a camera, and it was pretty regular, and never contained imagery.

    According to the Exif.

    The 1st one is 4s exposure with flash on and ISO 400. So ... I believe the ghost type lighting was from the long exposure and the subjects were lighted by the flash.

    When using flash, you can set it to do a long exposure and flash on the rear curtain.
    Meaning, the shutter will stay open for 4 seconds, and flash will fire right before the shutter closes. So the yellow color is caused by ambient light during the first 4 seconds.

    Your welcome.

    The longer you leave the shutter open, the more blur you will get.
    You might have to play with flash power as well.
