Low light: green dots on image.

I am trying to figure out what was causing some green flair dots to pop up in a few of my images.
Light on the wall causing it?
Filter causing it?
Lens problem?
User error... ding ding ding we have a winner

That's flare, probably off the chandelier top left.
If you had a filter on, it's a likely culprit, but any lens will flare given the right opportunity.

Looks very much like filter flare. Never use a filter, when you have bright (compared to the general illumination level) light sources within the field of view or slightly outside.

Thanks for the tip and I will make sure I don't make the same mistake.
