    Just started messing around with them in Photoshop, let me know what you think, or what I could be doing different.

    Yes, that sensor dust needed to go. And I'm happy to see the saturation of the red upped just a little in Jaszek's edit. Looks good.
    Over where I am, we have only just such a sorry excuse for a winter... :( Mountains and snow look sooo much nicer than what I managed to photograph today... Not sure I'll ever show my pics.

    So I never really have quite figured this out... But how exactly do you tell when there is sensor dust on a photo? What does it look like?

    Sensor dust shows up as darkish spots on your pictures. Not all pictures will show these spots though, you usually see them in pictures where you used a very small aperture (f/11 or higher) and have large areas that are the same color (like a clear blue sky).

    An example
