Phase dominance refers to the observation that the phase of the Fourier transform of an image carries more information than does the amplitude. We show that apparent counterexamples to phase dominance are not in fact counterexamples since the phase functions used are not independent of the true phase function. Phase dominance appears to be a general phenomenon.
