    Hey Hercules,
    The haze could be a combination of a number of things. If it's humid the camera might be capturing accurately, or if there's a lot of dust in the air or smoke from a fire.
    A UV filter will help clear up the haze but I use my CP for shots with a lot of reflection, such as sun on water, and on those brilliantly clear days when you want to really capture that blue sky accurately.
    You can also do some PP to help clean up the image, maybe tweak the saturation and curves a bit to get rid of the washed out look.

    I did some of what Paul is referring to here in post processing with particular emphasis on tone map and color filtering. To my eye, it is a bit extreme, but it is an example of the way things can be manipulated digitally. The tools used are the Opanda Photo Filter program (freeware) and Ulead Photo Impact (pretty cheap).

    It's smaller just to reduce file size.

    Paul, that doesn't look too good. It is too blurred -- you use HDRI to extract more details, not to kill them.

    I already told you that it is not, because you are not taking at least three shots with different exposure values.

    Keep in mind that even having three differently exposed shots and tone mapping them into 8-bit JPEG doesn't count as true HDR.

    For true HDR you need camera with HDR sensor, which AFAIK are currently commercially available only for security cameras.

    There is plenty of info on HDR imaging.

    Here is my first attempt of HDRI using Photomatix. Note that I tried to make this as true to life as possible.


    And another one:

    Thanks. Btw, you need to change your signature (you've got Fuji now haven't you?)
