At night, I've been getting a lot of shots that look like this:







AND











Which filter can I get to counter-act the above seen discolouration caused by the street lights? Also, can these problems be separately overcome using photo-editing software?

PS, I still like the shots, otherwise, I wouldn't post them.

If you shot them in RAW try adjusting the white balance.

I second that. Also you may do custom white balance if you stay with jpg.

This is the best I can do with pp on the jpg pict you posted. See how well it goes. No wonder you like this one from a wide angle lens. Cool

Definitely try the custom white balance feature on the camera - it can make quite a huge difference. The white balance selections for flourescent lighting can be pretty good, if you get cycle through to find the right one for the conditions. I've found that the shade and cloudy don't quite get what I want - I shoot raw anyway so its easier to tweak them if they don't come out quite right.

Thanks guys, I will play with the white balance and give raw a shot -- though I don't yet have photoshop, so I don't know how useful it will be at this point.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Daniel, I am not sure what you mean about the wide-angle lens. Those shots are with the K100 kit.

Did you use the widest focal length of the kit lens - 18mm?

That is considered to be wide I believe.
