I have taken some night photos, have that yellow tint. Anyone know how to remove it?
Well... are you shooting film or digital?
Without seeing your photos, I can only guess that the light and film are not matched for proper color balance. This is more easily prevented with digital photography. This is fixed in the "white balance" setting of your camera.
If you're shooting film, then you have to either put a filter on your lens or use "Type L" film.
If you can post an example of the tint, many here will be able to advise you.
Shooting night shots where? Sodium vapor street lights cast a prominent yellow/gold color, turning to amber in longer exposures.
shooting print film or slide?
print film should be corrected when you get them proccesed... slide a whole other world.
It deffinatly could be sodium lights. They will ruin a dark scene from a lot farther away than you would imagine. We had some near the observatory that I used to work at and when they were on they would totally blow out faint little objects.
