    if these are not crops from larger images ,then you have some fairly large dust bunnie there. maybe large is good, as it might mean fluffy dry dust, which can easily be blown away with a bulb, .... as opposed to tiny sticky dust, which is hard to remove.

    It definitely looks like dirt or lint or something. In the first image it's more diffuse which happens to the dust's shadow if you use a wider aperture.

    I recommend getting a bulb blower, taking off your lense, using the mirror-lockup option in the menus and seeing if you can just blow it away. If not pick up some Sensor Swabs and Eclipse to clean with.

    It seems sticky dust. Then you must use the wet solution. First, blow it with a bulb (Rocket bulb) to eliminate particles that can strach the filter surface. Then use Eclipse or medical etanol (99,9%) pure and Sensor Swab, or something similar (sometimes I use pediatrical tissues) with a soft aplicator. Try and train yourself first in a old filter. Charge first full battery. Then, go on. Don´t be afraid.
