When I return home I will make an inspection. I looked at that before, but not very critically.

Question: If the flare is white in the print, to me that means overexposure on that portion of the negative. How can something that's an obstruction to the light path cause that? (I am serious with my question, just don't understand the reasoning).

Thank you.
