I shot the photo below to test my 50mm F1.8 lens

Shutter: 1/25
Aperture: 1.8
ISO: 100

Filter: Hoya UV-Guard (mono coated)

I saw that there are some reflection at the bottom right corner of the photo. Is this caused by flaring or something else? Please advise.

I was trying to test the flaring of the lens and filter thus i put the room lights at the upper corner. They are 4 energy saving warm light bulbs.

Thanks

You could be looking at ghosting due to reflection triggered by the filter used. Try the same shot without use of filter. :)

for some lenses, even the most expensive filter being used, it MAY still have ghosting if you shoot towards the light source.

just remove filter and shoot, that's a simple solution.
