Default Lens Reflection

I got some lens reflection on some shots I took today. I know PS works but too much of a novice at PS. If there's lens reflection will a photo be rejected? Also, if anyone can fix this that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Did you have a filter on your lens?

I think it would depend on how quickly the screener screens the Amtrak picture. Nice shot, but if they notice the reflections, pretty much a reject.

The CSX one, I'm no screener, but the plow area makes the grain in the photo stand out pretty bad, the photo is dark, but darker have made it in.

Bright headlights and low-light levels lead to these. I get them even all three of my "L" lenses...

I just airbrush them out, but since they are in a pretty bad spot...

The light is moody, I like it.

Yeah.... I hardly ever zoom with my lens in lowlight.... Often I go to a north/south line and get side shots.... That line, an east/west main had bad shadows so I zoomed in a lot.... Got that reflection with the headlights and my filter. Next time I won't use it.... I'm going to at least try with these a little but I guess I'll make up for that with some more today. Thanks for all the advice..... And if someone thinks they can fix that easily, that would be great. Thanks!

If you can remember to remove your filter before taking pictures in those conditions, it can help a lot.

The photog's credo is that you should only show your best. The CSX shot is subpar regardless of lens flare. The Amtrak shot needs the flare cloned out. If that were my shot, I wouldn't want anyone to see it how it stands today.

Are they supposed to be the equivalent of a Nikon "ED" lens? As long as I don't have a filter on my ED lenses, (even Nikon filter) I don't get ghost images like that.
