I will admit to you, the LUG, how frustrated I am with my photos of the
Grand Canyon.  I think I posted that I used up several batteries in the M9
too fast as we descended into the canyon.  I turned off the preview and
saved lots of battery time and reviewing time; HOWEVER, as I discovered when
I started to review all of my photos at home, my 24 Elmarit had a huge
smudge on the bottom of the lens.  I didn't notice it at the time (and might
not have even with the preview), but it is very obvious in the photos.
 Unfortunately, I also decided to simplify and use only one lens on the M9
all the way down -  the 24.  Therefore, the only photos on the way down that
I'm giving good ratings to are the M8 ones, with the 12 CV and 35/1.4.
 Luckily, I changed to the 21/2.8 on the M9 on the way back up.

You can see the effect of the smudge in the center bottom of this photo:

<>Any suggestions on how to fix this?
 I've tried Clarity in LR and it doesn't do a thing.  Is it hopeless?
