Just trying to spot the dust bunnies on this shot and neither of us can see them
Can you let me know where they are so I can clone them out please?
and Dave and I are going to the opticians, and I'm going to get a new laptop - or laptop screen.

Neither can I and my eyes hurt
Lol last time I was there I had quite a long weight for a connection for Harrogate, so went and had a few, the pubs just out of shot on the left somewhere, travelled all that way and spent it sat in a boozer
Just above the pole on the right tower in the dark area of cloud maybe, and I say maybe because if you had not mentioned it I would have not seen it, it may even be my imagination.
i think i can see some on top of that bin across the road but then it might be natural dust on top of the bin, no only joking can't see sweet f all, i take it you had a comment from someone that tried to pick something wrong with the image then, or is it your clever idea on how to get some attention on your image lol...
. . . do you mean these Ade?
Seriously, I can't see anything at all wrong with this.
Here's how it appears on my screen Ade...
I've opened it up in PS and I still can't see any......
I think NIK Define (noise remover) has made the sky look a bit "painterley", which may look a bit odd
there were quite a few bunnies on the original, but thought I'd got them... the little b'stards can creep through though
There is one on the road aswell!
As soon as I print a picture I always seem to spot one
I'm not sure but there might be one at the end of the railings.

On closer inspection it might be a hair.
One technique I use is to copy the background [twice], use Topaz Adjust to massively increase contrast on the top layer to really make the dust bunnies stand out - and then work on the background copy layer underneath the [visible] contrasty layer with the patch tool. I periodically bin the contrasty layer and start again to ensure I've not missed any [my 5D is filthy].
You soon learn which dust bunnies to bother with - and those which you can safely leave alone since they're probably invisible in the normal image. It also helps pick up bunnies in areas which are difficult to view e.g. the stonework in the pic above.
I'm sure some other way could easily be found instead of Adjust - it's just easier since I put it all in an PS action called 'DBK' [Dust Bunny Killer]
You really must be going blind, Ade. They seem pretty obvious to me....
I use something similar - just "curves" though, add a curves adjustment layer and make it very contrasty and they stand out.
the interesting thing is that a colour shot that looks "clean" can look really dirty after you've put it through Silver EFEX if you've got high " structure" - it's a bit annoying
I've done 2 media profile shoots in the last 2 days and got well over 1000 shots, so spent a LONG time with my magic butterfly getting rid of sensor dust... the absolute last thing I wanted was to have to go through each shot cloning
they don't show at F2.8 and F4 anyway
