    I don't know what causes this, but on one particular lens there is a blue blue that appears on some, but not all photos.

    This happened after I visited Niagara (maybe water got trapped?)
    At first I thought it was just a fingerprint so I diligently cleaned the lens but it's still there in the same exact location.

    I use a old ricoh film camera, with a kiron 28-210 lens, and a polarizing
    filter



    heres an example

    This only occurs with one particular lens ?

    Did you check the rear lens element ?
    Is there any moisture inside the lens ?

    I think this may be a leak in your film cover on the back of the camera or a leak in your lens if it only occurs with one particular one. My old Pentax experienced the same problem.

    Maybe its just lens flare?

    I mention this because I have an old Vivitar 135mm that produces similar oddities under all sorts of lighting conditions when its hood isn't extended.
