Just recieved a manipulation rejection, http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=868549
Must admit I was a touch cranky until I equalised in PS..................

If screeners can confirm the "blotches" was in fact the manipulation seen,(and I'm sure it was),and no I have no idea as to the reason.

The original (resized to 1024)

And original (resized to 800) and equalized

I have seen something similar on a photo when sharpening with layers and failing to merge (more so at high ISO),but this has me stumped.This photo only needed the usual crop/size,touch of levels and USM.
It must have been somewhere in PS and I usually do a final equalize (obviously not this time) before saving.
Any ideas ..........
