In this photo there is some sort of smudge of light. Anyone know what causes this. It was all natural light.

It also happened on the top of his head in this photo.

Are you are referring to the light pattern on the cheek (and not the hair).. that is similar to the one on the top of the head??? On #1.. it looks like something was reflecting light near his face on that side.... #2 looks like a there was a shaft of light that caught the top of his head (look at his right ear.. it is pretty obivous)

I checked out the large version you have on Flickr.. makes it easy to see.... variations in the way the hair lays can cause this also.

The light was pretty bright on him, I thought it could have been the light reflecting off of his white hair.
