I would say that's one hell of a flare...

You were just shooting into a really strong light there; I'd expect something like that from that angle. And if it isn't in all of the shots, that makes it more likely to just be a flare.

I'm certainly no expert but is that flare or just the over-exposure? Two stops is quite a bit and you see the same effect, to a varying degree, with every light source in the shot. Even the lights at the top of the building way in the background show it.

That ring and all the junk in front of the buildings at center and lower right would all be flare as well as a bit of overexposure.

Were you using a cheap filter on your lens when making that exposure?

no filters, i overexposed it in cs5 just to ask this question, the original exposure is right on, the rings are very slight in the correct exposure, i did it 2 stops to ask this question as you might not even see it in the correct exposure shot...

this was just the lens, a cheap one 17-35 tamron, but i had just never seen rings that bad before out of it

Just for illustration's sake, could we see the original, non-overexposed shot?

Thanks :) The flare actually looks stronger to me in the normal shot :p

I'm not sure a hood would help you in that shot, although, I strongly support their use :) You have a couple of very strong light sources shooting in a slight angle, there, and I suspect it's one or more of the lights to the right of the frame that gave you that little halo.

That won't help if the source of the flare is within the field of view of the lens, as seems to be the case here.
