    Thank you Alan and Jim. Yes, haze is my enemy always in summer landscapes. I'm not familiar with a 'haze filter'. I guess it is a software tool made up of contrast and sharpening? Almost all my PP is done in Capture NX-D, with image stitching in Elements 9.
    Can you explain?
     
  5. I was just about to post dehaze
     
  6. Hi Brian

    I processed your great photo thru the haze filter on Photoshop 14.

  7. Not bad for a screen jpg
    Crazy good sometimes on a raw. I shoot the smoky mountains a lot and I use it often

    Mmm. That does look significantly clearer. Seems to work by increasing contrast only in the low contrast areas (furthest away in this case). Possibly just a little too contrasty for my taste.
     
  9. Haze is a matter of taste. There are times when the haze is what makes the shot, and sometimes you feel like it gets in the way. I like the original, but like Jim I too experimented with Affinity's Haze filter, it has a distance control. But in the end I decided your version made the place seem special.
     
  10. Wonderful scene and photograph! The haze fits in well.
