This is very similar to your previous upload. Would you like to tell us how you've used the comments on that upload to help you prepare this one? Because, if you haven't made use of the help you've already been offered (there is, for example, still a huge dust spot and two smaller ones over the sun, all of which need cloning out), there seems to be little point in people taking the time to comment on this shot.

My comments are as before. Under exposed and you need to clone out the dust on your sensor.

Forgive me but may I ask what is meant by "clone out"?

Image editors such as Photoshop and Paintshop Pro have a tool called the "clone tool". It gives you two brushes that move together and, when you click, it copies from one of the brushes to the other. Deleting something from an image using this tool is called "cloning out". This can be used for all sorts of things. Here, you'd use it to erase the dust spots by copying a bit of nearby sky over them but you can also use it to do things like removing litter from the ground, removing annoying branches that poke into your shot and so on.

Dave answers the clone point - use the stamp or clone tool to copy an area and paste it over the mark. Some software has a patch tool which can be placed over the mark and it will attempt to remove it.
