Used a Lightroom preset to get very close to this. After looking at this image up close, it’s painfully clear that the sensor of the 5D needs to be cleaned. Holy crap. 40 to 50 spots. It’s definitely not the lens. It’s the sensor. For most shots, the amount of healing spots necessary is reduced because there is enough color variation to hide the sensor dust. It’s the shots of large plain colors where the dirty sensor goes bananas.
