Hi. I've been doing a little night shooting with my Panasonic fz7 and I wanted to know if there was a way to remove the glare from the tail lights of the cars in this picture, either by changing some camera settings or by using some photo editing software. This is at 12x zoom, 1600 ISO, f3.3, 1/30 sec.

The problem is that the tail lights are too bright for the rest of the scene and are overloading the sensor. Try exposing for the lights and attempt to recover the shadow detail in post processing. There will always be tradeoffs in night shooting because the dynamic range exceeds the capabilities of the camera.
