#6. "RE: Why are colors washed out?"
In response to In response to 5


St Petersburg, RU
          

Looking at the scene and the haze gradient across the scene, I would guess there was a window just out of the frame to the left that was illuminating the front of the filter. Increasing contrast can help reduce the apparent flare but won't full correct it.
The filter did you no favors, it meant a higher ISO was needed for proper exposure by a full 1-2 stops.
Do you keep the lens hood on? I see a lot of tourists here not using them outdoors and I can imagine they are blaming the camera when their images are thin and washed out.
