    I was downtown for an hour or so today looking for some "Street" shots
    and ended up with a few steeple shots.

    Nothing like shooting steeples to show that you have dust on the
    sensor. Is using the Spot Healing Brush on blobs considered excessive

    Since I normally don't include much, if any, blue sky in my images I
    never noticed the dust blobs. Time to get the Rocket blower out.

    "Touching in" or "spotting" used to be a routine part of making chemical
    photo prints acceptable for commercial use; there were special brushes and
    paints for it, and even people who made a living doing little else in the
    back rooms of professional photography firms.

    Unless you have a specific instruction from your client or examiner or
    whatever that 'absolutely nothing' can be done to the image after you've
    released the shutter, I think it's entirely up to you to decide how much
    processing is "excessive".

    No. But for sensor dust spots, a real PITA
    If decide to clean the sensor yourself, make certain the battery is
    fully charge. Also see:
