When I am shooting cityscapes at night with long exposure, some of the shots will have light reflection above the buildings. And this is from a distance of at least 500 yards away. How do i prevent this?

Do you have your UV filter on the lens? It could be the reflection off the front element back to the UV / Haze filter. If you have any filters on try taking them off. I learned thin one the hard way.

That is exactly what is happening. Happened to me once in a candlelit birthday cake scene for my friends 4 year old... Once...

Wreck a few good pics. that is a great way to hammer it into the old noggin'.

Good shot BTW, you might try taking 2-3 pics and tone mapping them (HDR)
