No, as I said it is unlikely the dust would have a direct relationship
to the Newton rings, in fact, more likely the opposite.

The dust, or defect is above the jet streak at the very top of the
image.  It is a gray smudge, which seems to be dust or a defect in the

Oh, and here I was thinking you added that jet streak... ;-)

This isn't a contest or a test, so there is no "cheating".  It is a
matter of personal esthetic, this image is not journalism, IMHO, it's a
scenic.  I've been known to clone out garbage on the street to...
I have no guilt over this whatsoever.

Well, you may still be able to reduce the pressure on the film by
placing a thin border material around the edges, as an example.  It may
provide enough flattening so the DOF situation is handled, but not
caused the film to come in direct contact with the glass.

Yes, I am aware of that.  I was suggesting that your "hurricane blasts
of wind" might cause dampness if the air wasn't dry, or even due to
venturi effect, it might have cooled down the air enough to deposit
condensation on the film/glass from household air. I was suggesting that
since the dust can be handled via dICE, that it might be detrimental to
over clean the film with air, because it may make it more apt to show
Newton rings.
