      Using Lightroom 5 Spot Removal Tool in Heal mode the sample area exposure is different than the photo – much darker.  I highlight the blemished area I want to remove, select a replacement sample area and the replacement sample area is much darker.  I have used the Spot Removal Tool many times in the past and have never had this problem? 

       

       

        Before I used the Spot Removal tool I was using the Adjustment Brush to darken some areas of the photo, and when I switched to the Spot Removal Tool it seemed to apply the darker exposure I used in the Adjustment Brush I just finished using.
