Any city-dwelling photographer is well aware of the plague of light pollution and how it can interfere with images, especially of the night sky. Well, it looks like Cokin has come up with a solution in the form of its new CLEARSKY filters.

Light pollution is largely caused by street lights using mercury or sodium vapour lamps, which is visible to the naked eye from long distances, and is especially known for causing a yellow/orange colour cast to camera sensors. This can be very difficult to correct in post-production without affecting the colour cast of the entire image.
