Mike Hagen's Hazy Image Tricks - My attempt!
I very much enjoyed Mike's " Fixing a Hazy Photograph" tutorial. I have attempted this myself with varying success, however I can say Mike's method is certainly very good. So, I attempted an image I took in Snowdonia this summer of Mount Snowdon with a steam train ascending. What becomes more apparent is that further down the railway there is clearly anoth train descending which I had not noticed before. Also, walkers are clearly visible on the slopes above the steam train
Anyway, this is my attempt and it certainly adds clarity converted to monochrome.

What a good transformation! The image in B/W is good. I like that last one better. Learn and learn more...
