At What Point Does A.net Reject For Heat-haze?

Something I've been wondering for a while.....

While testing a new lens this morning the sun shone and I managed some quite nice shots. When I returned home and put them on the big screen, I noticed a tiny hint of heat-haze on a couple. You really have to zoom in and look hard but it is there due to the aircraft involved having narrow but bold cheatlines.

It made me wonder if a tiny amount of heat-haze - undetectable on a standard 1024x683 image - is acceptable on A.net? Is it an inevitable side-effect of the summer months and therefore over-looked if it is minimal? Or would it lead to a rejection if it was noticed or if a screener knew it was there by viewing a full-sized image?

What fed my curiosity further was looking through the database at images taken at spots I'm familiar with where I have had personal experience of mild heat-haze - often necessitating shooting quite a distance from the subject and obviously in the hotter parts of the day.

I admit to submitting a quite badly heat-hazed picture last year. To my surprise it got in!

So where does A.net draw its fine line on this one? And what views do you hold personally with regard to heat-haze? It's one of my pet hates to be honest and even the tiniest bit niggles me!

You've answered your own question Karl. If it's detectable in the submitted image then it's rejected, if it's undetectable, then not.

Let's say then - hypothetically - I submit an image for screening then for some reason send the screener screening it a full-sized image showing the heat-haze - what would happen then?

I'm just trying to get to the bottom of whether or not a tiny bit is to be expected with summer shooting. Every summer shot I'm assuming must display some somewhere if one were to look hard enough?

As you say, hypothetical.
How, for instance could you send the screener a full sized image?

Dana answered it perfectly !
