    I took several pics of the downtown cityscape the other day and on all the pictures there was this blueish thing on the image. For ex. it's in the middle of this image. Can anyone help me with what that could be and what I am doing wrong?

    Shot at iso 200, 10 sec SS

    Make sure your lens and sensor are clean. Other than that nothing much to do but take a new shot and hope it is gone. A lens with fewer flare will most likely help but I think you were not going for that..

    I would use ISO100 for long shutter like that so only light source would pop

    ^ that won't make a difference.

    The blue spot looks like lens flare from the sign.
    Post more pictures.

    I agree it looks like lens flare. Do you have a UV filter or other protective filter on the lense? Sometimes those will cause flaring, where a "naked" lense will not.

    I didnt mean to get rid the flare. Just for long shutter night shot like that. ISO 100 is what I use

    I was using a "naked lens" but I do have a UV and circular polarizer filters, I'll try them out next time...so that thing is lens flare?
