This photo got rejected for Hot Spot or dead pixel. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/17422337/20120630_5434%20copy.jpg
I've been staring at it at 100% for 20 minutes and for the life of me I cannot find the proble area.
Please let me know if you can find it.

Looks like a misclick of the rejection reason, sorry, I'd take the logo off the powerbox and reupload

That was an editorial submission, so you cannot edit the image and resubmit it as editorial. That said, I'm not sure why you submitted to editorial in the first place?
I couldn't find sensor spots on your image linked above but I downloaded your original submission to be sure, and I can indeed faintly see sensor spots in the sky to the left of the tower. It looks like your watermark on the above-linked file happens to perfectly obscure them.
Granted, they are so subtle and faint that I personally would not have rejected this image on that basis, but it was not an Inspector error - the editorial Inspector would NOT have meant for you to modify the content of the image.
Regardless of how you choose to resubmit the image (editorial or creative), I'd still go ahead and retouch the sensor spots, since that is what the rejection was for. I find it helps to move the image around the screen quickly to spot them.

Agree with mr. Donald. Its visible on the image above as well, if you run it trough some level changes in photoshop or invert it you should be able to see it. I always check for hot spots or dust on the sky by pushing dark tones on levels (right slider) or by simply inverting image tones. Its kind of lets say "x-ray"

Thanks good info guys, I'll do the changes.
I submitted it as Editorial as it is in the Kitt Peak national observatory and there is a photographic restriction for commercial use.
