to my untrianed eye it looks like it might be a lens issue?

Is it always in the same position / same shape?
What lens is it?
Did you use a hood? looks like the sun was bright...

It could be the shutter beginning to fail. Do you know how many photos your camera has taken?

yeah its always in the same position and shape, except when taking vertical pics you cant see it

the lens is a brand new 28-135 i have maybe 500 shots through it, i tried different lenses and it doesn the same thing

I did not have a hood on it but it was consistiant in every pic, except the vertical pics

The more I think about it, the more it looks like a failing shutter to me.

Do a forum search for failing shutter - there are examples posted and they look very similar.

Filter? Possibly a reflection from the ring of a low quality UV filter.

if it is the shutter failing, could it be the result of a bad sensor cleaning? i just had it cleaned at a professional shop

Hmm, that's not very encouraging. If you are using a UV filter, take it off and see if that "fixes" it. If not, I'd go back to that shop and show them the problem and see if they may have done something to it while "cleaning" it. "Pro" shops don't always know what they are doing...

I wasnt using any filter, i did take it back to the shop and they had no idea what the problem was, they suggested that i send it to canon for more inspection.

Could this be the shops fault that cleaned the sensor?

It's hard to say. It may just be a coincidence... did it happen as soon as you got the camera back? Can you look back at previous photos from just before it went in and check for anomalies there?

How many clicks does your camera have on it?

Impossible to tell - it could be, but it could also just be a coincidence. How old is your camera and how many clicks does it have? Call me crazy, but I always clean the sensor myself because I wouldn't trust anybody to handle my cameras. It's very easy to do and you are in control, not some clerk who doesn't care what happens to your camera.
