ok so read the lot in 10 mins or so, some sample lightroom settings to try in future (looked odd on paper so may be miracle workers)
not bad for free i guess, thing i wanted was an easy way to reduce haze in lightroom
the book says you can do it -hurrah! but doesn't say how... booo
lots like that

Up your contrast, set tonal curve to medium, up detail (local contrast), probably after that, youll also need to up exposure a little. Contrast is your best tool in my experience, and practice, not making pictures look fake/counter balancing increasing contrast.

or just use dxo optics clearview much easier

Much easier, and not very good, if instant quickfix is what youre after, theres a million and one haze correction filters, but they all look a bit meh, like using b&w filters and thinking it looks monochrome. Ill not explain further, but put it this way, if youre happy with average, stick with your post fiters, and wizards.

something like dxo analyses the scene and only works on the areas of low contrast so its not a filer as such, sure i can look through a tutorial and follow all the steps etc but dxo is enough and does a basic replication on the problem areas
certainly better than saying lightroom can do something and not telling you how
which tbh it cant - its the user doing it in this case anyway
all the slider/graph stuff in these programs are basically quick fix things and can affect other parts adversely - clearview is no different
the lightroom cc haze filter is just the same probably so no matter

LR you target areas with gradients so as not to 8introduce artifacts where the tonal shift isnt needed, dxo i believe isnt targeted, so contrasty landscapes, i couldnt use it.

as far as i can see the specific haze tool is just a general slider but if its in the gradients section then thats not too bad

in dxo its 'targeted' as it only (mainly) affects the low contrast areas and leaves the higher ones untouched...think due to black levels per area

i dont like the local adjustment brush so much as tbh i am not good as using it so for me a simple tool is better than my simple skills

either way... the book told me nowt about haze! X)
