How well can you remove Haze?

Re: quick try

Thank you! I'm glad you like it!

I tried to divide this in two stages.

1-Luminosity: I worked in LAB mode to create a black and white layer. I adjusted each tone until i had good balance between shadows and highlights. Then i blended this layer in luminosity mode. In LAB this won't affect the colours. (then converted back to rgb)

2-Colour: I used mixed methods to correct the colours. Removed the bluish tint and corrected contrast using NikColorEfexPro4 (mostly pro contrast and also a bit of tonal contrast). In the end i masked some parts of the image and adjust the colour slightly using hue/saturation and then blending in colour mode. And also did a little dodge and burn...

That was basically what i did and it works well most of the time when images have haze.
