This is c ommon phenomenon for compact cameras on long exposure with flash fired (slow sync flash mode). The white spots are due to flashlight reflected off dust particles in the air. I've seen much worse pics.

Does switching off the flash helps? Reflected lights are from those fireworks?:light:

Hi,

I did some bulb mode exposure without flash and also got the "glare/flare?" in the picture. How can I reduce it? I can actually see it before I take the shot, but I can't seem to get rid of it totally, even after I tried to reposition it a few times...

Nopes, i'm using a Zenit... I think I should have taken out the UV filter, maybe might solve the problem... My friend with his Nikon F80 also has the same problem of the reflection on the filter/lens... maybe the night scene was too bright...

glare and flare is sometimes inevitable cos of internal reflection and refractions in the lens elements. using a lens hood can help minimise lens glare or flare from the sides.

Fireworks. Were they supposed some blue fireworks or other colours? Sometimes the colours change due to long exposure. Blue and purple are a few challenging colours to capture.

Hiee...

FYI, it seem to be the dust illumintion prob....I'm using a canon DC too and have this problem- once in a while......

It can be dust illuminted right infront of the cam or even water mist......

since the flash is right next to the lens, tendency that in night shot, this would happen....


Solution - reshoot....or edit....

regards,
me
