Uploader comment: I just developed this and everyone seems to be talking about ORBS...... what are they? There sure are a lot of them in this picture taken at our local Relay for Life Cancer Walk. Is it just reflection from the large screen?

i do believe orbs exist but i belive these are dust orbs. this picture is a good example of what to look for that might cause this. Most of the orbs are more on the left of the picture.Towards the right, they are more spread out. If you think about it, to the left is the dirt route in which people walked the marathon so there is more dust being disturbed causing all these particles in the air.

This could also be caused by rain.

it's outdoors so it could also be pollen

It is niether, you used a digital camera, what you are seeing is called Noise, this is when you use a camera that is not ver well adapt at taking night photos you will see this. In fact this can be reproduced every single time with just about every single digital camera. Try hold the exposure open longer and set on a tri pod next time

Dust, or anything on the lense, because the orbs are in different sizes
