About this tutorial:
I wanted to make an updated video on using the Spot Removal Tool found in Adobe Lightroom 5 and this photo offered me the opportunity to do so. In this video tutorial I will start off with three bracketed images that I will prepare for importing into Photomatix Pro to be combined into an HDR, but I will also start the cleaning the images upon the bracketed photos before import as well. I do this to make the clean up less noticeable, plus after I have combined the images into an HDR and re-imported back into Lightroom. This gives me a clean slate to double process the clean up procedure, which in turn produces a image that you could not tell I had a field day cleaning up with the Spot Removal Tool.
This image was created using HDR Soft's Photomatix Pro software and was shot on my Canon EOS 70D with EF-S 10-22mm Lens with a CPL Filter. The auto bracketing mode settings used was -2EV, M, +2EV. The metered exposure was at 1/50sec, ISO100 and f/6.3 at 10mm (16mm full frame equivalent) with a tripod and 2sec delay.
