Clean your camera lens

While editing the text from the book I am currently converting I found that the lower part of the original page/image was not in very good shape. It had a lot of errors. I checked back to the original images and there seemed to be a glare on that part of the page. I checked and checked to see what was causing it. Well, I finally figured out that the camera lens was dirty. I cleaned it and took a test shot and the image was clear.

Moral: MAKE SURE YOUR CAMERA LENS IS CLEAN!
