How could I have not noticed, as I was taking them, all the crap on the lens? I have a bunch of pictures that have composition worthy of a National Geographic spread, but pretty much ruined because there's this THING on the lens that looks like a phantom tree branch. Not so bad if it's over a tree, but totally out of place when it's in the sky.
I know I'm sloppy when I'm in the field, but this is ridiculous. It's like a tenth of the frame long.
