Your English is fine. (My Polish doesn't exist at all, so you have the advantage.)

Since it's a software change - the camera itself didn't change - try a different camera app. I like Camera FV-5 Lite because it gives you shutter or program priority and long exposure times if you need them (like for meteor showers). There are a lot of free camera apps. Try them and you'll probably find one that's better than the one that came with the phone on 4.4. (Which one is best depends on what you use the camera for. Shots of people in the street don't need fancy exposure control, but close-ups need good focus control.)

Did u read the topic?? My phone after downgrade was "unscratched" and clean?? This is not dirty or something ....
I read your topic., but he's right. It looks like you have the coating coming off the lens. It happened to a lot of people and it's easily fixed. It has nothing to do with Lollipop or down grading the OS. Read the later posts in the link Grand Theft Audio posted for you , follow the simple instructions and your pictures will be good again.
