Default Scan (Dirty): Visible dirt or dust on scan.

Alright I've now had two of my latest photos rejected for this reason. I can see a visible spot in the water in the bridge shot. I can't figure the other picture out though. Any help on this fellas? Also I know there have been threads on sensor cleaning, is that the problem?

Yes, that's the problem on both. In the first image it's in the sky near the top middle/left.

I don't see that one, Bill. I see one near the top edge, 1/3 from the right.

Hi Bill, I make that in the sky on the top middle right! Go up from the signal mast to above the second wire and you will see a faint smudge.

Better take your camera out on a day with blue sky, point it at a clear patch of sky and take a test shot. Then blow it up and start looking.

Cleaning your sensor isn't for the unprepared. Either get the right tools or take it to a camera shop and have them clean it for you.

Oops...my bad...I better start putting a 'L' & 'R' on my shoes to prevent this in the future.

As an aside, since we're talking about sensor cleaning (sorta), I've been very happy with the sensor swabs from Visibledust.com. I was a little nervous using them at first....but they really do work well. I use the 'Smear Away' clening fluid, it seems like it really helps prevent dust from sticking. I also generally use a rocket blower after any shoot that involved switching lenses.
