Camera and Lens?
I get this sometimes too, not as profound at that though...
canon 40D 18-55mm kit lens
With me its a Nikon D700 and 24-70 F2.8 and is in low light conditions such as this. Same ripples but interestingly not from the lights in the picture but central and concentric as this is.
Something up there (needless to say)... Is it under warranty?
It is but i ask myself what exactly could it be? uv filter light bouncing back from the lens? focusing screen bizarre i know but im outa ideas and if it is the camera it needs to go back asap
You only getting this is strong extreme light situations? I had it on some of my Night shots with auroa but not all of them, which I just didnt get either.
Looks a bit like Newton's Rings to me. Note that the light source is monochromatic (well, almost -- just the two closely-spaced sodium D lines) which will accentuate the problem. Try removing your UV filter.

Spot on or should that be circle Thanks
Internal reflections from filter
remove the uv filter this happens wih these shots if you dont
thanks for all your help I will try again tonight:O
Dito, thanks I did have a UV on with my shots too. Will try it.
I believe it's something in the processing, maybe in the shadows and brightness adjustment. I reported it on one of Arthur Morris's shots a couple weeks ago; btw, he was using a Canon Mark IV and 800mm f5.6 lens, so I don't think it's produced in-camera.
Not in the processing im afraid as was in all shots straight out of camera in raw Good news is uv off and its fine
