G'day,

This shot of mine was recently rejected for NOA_dirty:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/25SEP05_VHOJE_BNE_IMG_3140.JPG

Ive played around with the contrast and brightness a bit to see if it will show up any dust spots or other dirt on the photo, but i cant find a thing.

Hoping a fresh set of eyes might be able to find something i couldnt.

Cheers

Looks like a cloning spot. I could be wrong though.
Sorry to say, but I can see it even without opening the reduced size photo.
If you want to see the spots in pre-post, equalise the photo and they'll pop up.

This should help. Used "Equalize"

Rather than equalising the whole image, I use the magic wand to select the sky and then equalise that. You can't usually miss them then.

I can see it without opening your photo. The best way, and there are many, is to simply equalize and it will show up like a sore thumb. My only problem is that you have to get out of equalize to clone them out, pity there wasn't an un-equalize button, it would make things a lot handier. The spot healing tool in CS2 works brilliantly, just set the size of the circle and click on the spot, no pre-settings invloved like the clone tool.

Take care

Hi Brian...

What a pity because is a nice photo. Clean it and upload it again.
Try to shoot the sky with an aperture like f22 and you'll see all the dirt your camera has.

Cheers

Just add a new equalized layer, and clone out the spots in the background layer.

One click in the history palette will do the trick.

I'm aware of that method, thanks Tim and Q but what I was trying to say instead of doing that, going back and instead of creating a new layer.

Thanks anyway,

cheers
