The Orion nebula

Also called Messier 42 or NGC 1976. I'ts in the constellation of Orion..
It is at 1270 light years from Earth. For this photo I took 184 photos of 15 "to ISO 400, with a UHF antipollution filter and a modified Canon 450D camera.
My observatory is located in a place with terrible light pollution.
Does anyone know how to eliminate the light pollution in our cities?
This photo was taken on 2012/12/12 but the process was done 2013/02/20
