How best to illuminate outdoor night with the public new lighting lamps with that horrible yellow color orange? Usually I shot with my lighting to 3200K with gelatin 1 / 2 cto + 1 / 4 cto, but I had better results instead of adding 1 / 4 cto, a straw, and the HMI with Full and a 1/2 cto.
Watch out for the irises are very low, usually 2.8f with 500T, but it is good for print all of the streets. then it is only correct in post production and the lamps are already more will normal temperature, only has one drawback, the passing traffic are all with xenon lamps!! :rolleyes:

Anybody have any solutions to these situations more practical course without having to replace the bulbs for lack of budget?

i ask . why fight reality if you can't?
i would leave the lights as is.
for the foreground i would put tungsten light with 1/2 or full CTO to look close to the background but more natural on skin tone

you can justify some light source coming from window store or some street sign or from apartment's
then you can use what ever light you want
