Help! What are these spots on my apple tree leaves?

KerenR(7)June 18, 2013

Both of my apple trees have two different types of spotting on them. I posted a link to the pictures of them. I am a newbie to apple growing and really need some help figuring our what this is. I have sprayed several times with Captan...but it appears I still have some sort of disease going on here. Appreciate the help!

3rd image is likely rust. Uncertain if other 2 are the same.

Sprays won't help after disease is present.

I don't have these diseases but will offer my opinion to get things started. The picture on the right is cedar apple rust. The other issue may be apple scab but I don't think so. Apple scab if present should also be on the small fruits.

I figured the third was rust, but can't figure out the other two. The trees are new, so we didn't get any apples to check for scab. I don't think that's it though. I'm surprised to see any diseases because I followed advice on here and did a recommended spray schedule with captan since right after dormancy. Any ideas on the other two pics? Is there a better fungicide to use?
