Dust Spots?

Sat Aug 27, 2005 2:19 pm

Hey guys,

I just got this photo rejected for having dust spots on it... I don't really see any. Could you please give me a second opinion on it?

I found some. I hope you don't mind but I downloaded it and put it in Photoshop and Made an adjustment level (Brightness and Contrast) and reduced brightness and increased Contrast and got this: I tried to put the actuall picture in the post but gave up trying.

Looks like you might have a couple of 'dead' pixels. I circled what I found, you can see at least one of these 'dead' pixels on the original.

If you look at the right over wing exit and count 2 windows to the right then follow that up all the way to the top you will see a very small dust particle it can been seen but just.
Good luck with it nice shot

You dont even need to equalize it, they are visible with the naked eye

Thank you for your help, gentlemen. I'll be sure to rework the shot.

I'm not 100% sure about this but sensor dust appears as a much bigger
and circular spot. Those in your picture, I would dare to say, could be birds or something else. You might as well clone them out.

Aren't those birds? I think it's preferred they are removed nowadays.

They appear to be 'stuck' or 'dead' pixels. Alex, check to see if they show up in all your shots in the same location.
