Put the punch back into hazy im­ages with Light­room CC

The Ef­fects and De­tail pan­els are two fea­tures of Light­room CC that, al­though not new, work to­gether seam­lessly to pow­er­fully bring out new de­tails and depth to shots.

They com­bine a lot of use­ful but in­cre­men­tal ad­just­ments that in­clude chang­ing con­trast, sharp­ness and noise for a dras­ti­cally dif­fer­ent pho­to­graph.

You might find th­ese ar­eas use­ful when work­ing on a photo like ours here – some­thing hazy, dis­tant, lack­ing con­trast or def­i­ni­tion. Some­times haze can en­hance an im­age, but in this case we have two peo­ple to­wards the right of the frame we want to high­light. The moun­tains be­hind the sub­jects are cov­ered with cloud, which makes them some­what less im­pres­sive.

So we’re go­ing to give this shot a boost of sharp­ness for a more strik­ing and ap­peal­ing re­sult.
