    i recently tried some night shots while on a trip in portugal. i used my canon 300d with the 18-55 ef-s kit lens with ab uv-fliter. I have some "rainbow" glare in the picture and would like to know where this comes from. I shot in aperture priority. This is the information i extracted from my picture:
    Tv=30, Av=16, ISO=100, Flash=off, auto white balance.

    the picture is here


    please let me know what i can do to avoid this in the future.

    thanks,

    michael

    oh strange. I do a lot of shots with my 350d with the very similar 18-55 ef-s lense (type III i think). I have never encounter that problem. I could be way off, but you might try some test shots without the UV filter. Again, i could be wrong here also, but I never use my UV at night.

    I can fix that pic (remove the rainbows) for ya if you like.

    I've never had this problem myself, so the only thing i can really think is the UV Filter also...

    i say it's nothing but light refraction based on the angle of light and camera position... similar to what causes a rainbow. here you have the same elements light/water.

    the fountain is overexposed.
