Good morning ALL


seeking advice on how to "cut through" DESERT HAZE  (Middle east)  affecting various raw files

that I wish to work on in Lightroom before sending in submission.


I haven't any experience on desert work preparation.


All advice would be gratefully accepted.

First increase the Clarity slider and evaluate what effect it has.  If more haze remains, then start to gently increase the contrast slider.  If the haze is primarily in the distance, rather than apply the contrast slider to the entire image, use the adjustment brush and apply the contrast just to those portions of the image where the haze is especially noticeable.


Let us know if that solves your problem.

Deserts sometimes have haze. Does the haze give a desert feel to the image, thereby enhancing the image? 


Maybe you should leave the haze in, or even add more haze in Lightroom.
