As I stated on Wednesday, dust on the sensor is a horrible occurrence when working with HDR images.  Often times dust is very difficult to see in a single exposure, but after a series of five are bracketed the amplification of dust is unbelievable.  I recently had the worst run in with dust I have ever come across on my sensor.   I am used to one or two specs here and there, but recently my sensor has been filthy due to a lens changing error on my part.  I was walking through the woods on my photo walk, I went to change lenses and got distracted for about 20 seconds while my camera sensor was open.  WORST MOVE EVER!  Thank goodness for post processing and several ways that make getting rid of HDR dust blemishes a breeze.  This tutorial will cover how to fix the dust spots after the image is captured.  If you want to get rid of them forever you have to clean your sensor, refer to Cleaning Digital Cameras an awesome resource for cleaning your digital camera sensor!
