Is it the lens that causes this? Cause this was taken with my junk camera (my stand-in till I get my Rebel). Mike

Not necessarily, it is more over how your camera handles it. It is really not anything preventable. Sorry, wait for the rebel .

Once again River demonstrates that he doesn't know what he's talking about.

It's a lens, aperture, and occasionally a filter issue. If you're using a point and shoot with manual controls you can try shooting with a higher F stop. If you've got a UV or other filter on the lens, try taking that off and see if it helps.

Michael, seeing as you're new to the forums it safe to assume you don't know any better but in general I would suggest you don't take advice from the forums newest perennial spammer, River Rails.

Like other have said the rings are more a results of the lighting conditions. The photo is horrible side lit or backlit - just poorly lit in general. As such, the three extremely bright headlights are blowing out your camera automatic settings. Just for the record, having a Rebel on auto mode won't make a deference either.

The easy way to get rid of the rings is to just shoot with the sun at your back, that should do the trick. Obviously, another way around the problem would be to not take such a head on angle of the train.
