    In a lot of the pictures that I have been taking, particularly sunset pictures, there are red and green spots that are captured in the pictures. The sun is sometimes a little distorted also. What can I do differently to prevent the spots from appearing in my shots, Thanks

    Post some images so people can see what you are talking about. Could just be noise, dead pixels? Who's to say.
    Also, what camera and lens are you using. What ISO?

    Lens flare? That's my guess. Happens when you point your camera at a bright light... like the sun.

    Show us a pic please :grumpy:

    do you have a photobucket or flickr account?

    If not, create one on either of those sites (flickr is better) and upload your pictures from your computer to there, and then the picture will have a URL that ends in .jpg :)

    type in [ img ] (right click on picture and click on copy image location, then paste here) [/ img ]

    type that all without the spaces and it should work... If you at least do just the URL of the picture, one of us can repost for you with your permission or we can at least click on the link to get to the picture...

    FOR THE OP:

    This is NOT my work. This is the OP's work.

    You are correct, that is lens flare caused by the sun.
