Sounds like you need an Advanced Filter using formulaic criteria. Can you post a sample showing the actual layout of the two?

So I need list of worksheet2 rows where same id in worksheet1 and value1=<null>

That's not enough info really. Can you post a small sample showing what you have and exactly what output you expect.
From what you've said it looks more like a lookup formula than any sort of filter currently.

When I say sample, I mean a sample workbook, so I can see what you want as the outcome. At the moment I'm thinking you just want a formula in the first sheet like this in C2:
=IF(B2<>"",IF(ISNA(MATCH(A2,Sheet2!$A:$A,0)),"",VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!$A:$B,2,False)),"")

Sorry I cannot post the worksheet as it contains some private data.

I dont want a value in a cell.

I need rows from worksheet2 where the same ID in worksheet1 does not have an image (i.e. the value in the second column of the row is null

Add a new column to worksheet2 using a formula like:
=INDEX(Sheet1!B:B,match(A2,Sheet1!A:A,0))=""

and then filter sheet2 using that column and filtering for TRUE values.
