Re: Not a Haze 2A or 1A?

Clever use of the polarizer on #2.


So for number three this isn't something like a Haze 1A or 2A getting rid of the shortest wavelengths?

Well it would get rid of the shortest wavelengths allright. But that doesn't help. The problem is not that the built-in (on-sensor) UV filter is too weak.

Rather I went in exactly the opposite direction. "Ont skall med ont fördrivas" (fight evil with evil) as we say in Sweden. Here's what image three looks like before proper WB, i.e., when using the ordinary tungsten WB with which it was shot. Now why does such a filter (there are actually three of them on top of each other) help?
