Try precomposing your PSD footage and your null together.
You should then be able to apply shine directly to your precomposed layer.
Precomposing didn't make a difference, I am afraid. I am still getting Shine across the whole page

If you set your "colorize based-on" to "luminance", does it look more like you expect?
Are you sure that the alpha information on the layer you're trying to effect is accurate (completely transparent where it needs to be transparent)?
Also, did you try disabling your Levels effect? Perhaps you had somewhat opaque information in your PSD which was enhanced by boostsing the gamma on the alpha channel.
Thanks so much for the quick help Steve.
I have double checked the psd. Stupid mistake!!! It is slightly off black and I should have thought of that.
Thanks so much for the help

Glad we got it worked out, Sean.
I have no idea if you can tweak the comment. I'm happy to have been helpful though! Thanks!
