Re: The curious case of the green spot in the night

I think they are lens flare and unavoidable if you shot into the light. Not long ago, I took two shots which had different types of flare. In the first one, you can see two green spots and a bit blue flare above the lamp. Then you see the same blue flare and a slight white flare in the middle of the photo. The lens was Contax G 28 with Nex 5n

I did try to avoid the green flare as I saw it on the screen, but it seemed at certain angle, they appeared. To keep the composition I wanted, I kept the green flare.
