    Ok so driving to our atv weekend getaway our trailer hauling 6 quads and generators and everything else had a tire blowout and we didn't realize until the cop lights came on and he said we were putting up quite the light show so where we stopped i got some nice shots but there seem to be a decent amount of hot pixels and was hoping maybe someone could help me out and edit them out. Thanks!

    These are pretty underexposed to me. You should seek SwitchFX's advise. He takes amazing night shots.

    The first shot looks underexposed, but I actually like it that way. More exposure and it would begin to look like a daylight scene, but with stars.

    in the #1 you have to clone che half-pylon in the upper left corner. the exposure looks good for me, i like it.
    the #2 is very good :thumbup:
    the #3, well, it could be better without the pylon ;)

    Ya those are not hot pixels. Those are the stars.

    Ahh now I see what you're talking about. I couldn't see that on the scaled down version. You can remove those tiny red spots easily with a clone or retouch tool. Most any program has this (Picasa has it, which is free).

    A quick google turns up this tutorial on the clone stamp in PhotoShop: Photoshop Tutorials: Clone Stamp tool
