Need Help With A Photo

Wed Oct 18, 2006 12:25 am

Hi guys,

Yesterdaynight I've made some non-av photos, but I'm hoping some of you can help me with a problem.

I was practising my night photography on a bridge, but in most shots there's a significant amount of flare visible. I've picked out the worst the photo (see below) and only resized it:

Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 683 File size: 441kb
booo


How do I get rid of these round flares if I may call it that? Would I need a filter of somesort?
Any help is much appreciated.

Below are 2 other photos which did turn out good, for those who are interested:

Big version: Width: 800 Height: 533 File size: 291kb


Big version: Width: 800 Height: 600 File size: 553kb



Thanks,

Kas

Nice shots there Kas; especially the 3rd one --> very nice lighting!

As for the flare thing, it might have been caused by small dust particles on the lens or even small droplets of water.

It could be, as I didn't clean it before shooting...  ashamed

Got some sort of filter on the lens? If so remove and try again - they can be known to cause this.

Hi Martin,

I don't have filters for my lens.

So I guess my best bet is to just remember to wipe the lens clean before a shoot. I'll try to remember Big grin

Im pretty sure dust doesn't cause this.

you can see dust in the air under a light right? This is because dust reflects the light. Couple this with a lens and it might very well be.
