Will an outdoor photo taken in a light drizzle (rain) be interpreted as noise?

I took a number of photos of an historic site while thee was a light drizzle. The effect is that the outdoor image files (nature and historical ruins) look as though they are 'coated' with noise. However, technically, it isn't noise (as far as I can tell) but the effects of the precipitation interacting with the sunlight. Without providing an example, should I be concerned that the images will be interpreted as being too noisy or should I just upload them for submission and provide titles and tags that indicate the photos were taken in the rain?

P.S. Evidence that the images don't contain noise is that using a noise filter does not change any aspect of the image.

Think of it this way....will it be usable for commercial use. Will someone purchase it for use....would you purchase it if it was someone elses images.

Follow Miraclemoments advice, and then if you still want to submit it use the comments to reviewer to explain the situation.

I have had similar issues with rain drops being back lit by lightning and appearing as large spots.

Here is that image:

It was approved, but has not had any downloads.

Hope this helps.

No matter if is 'rain' noise, gaussian noise or common senzor noise, if the image is not technicaly correct at 100% zoom and not appealing for buyers, will be refused. Try to upload only one from the series and wait to see if is ok.
