I have taken over a period of time a number of photographs of paragliders over sea water. I use a Canon 6D Mark II and a Tamron 150 - 600 lens. I process all my photographs through Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. My concern with these photographs relates to haze.

I have used the dehaze slider in Lightroom as well as the other sliders. Whilst I can remove some of the haze in the background it has an effect on the colours in the photograph. I have not have a polarising filter for this lens but wonder if that would be beneficial. I realise a polarising filter would cause at least one or two stops of light.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Many thanks.

You might be able to make the necessary adjustments to correct the haze if you edit it in RAW.

Haze is tricky. As Lisa has said above a RAW file is the best option. The dehaze slider tends to add contrast and darkens the image so some tweaking of the shadows and exposure is needed afterwards.

Thanks for the above 2. I shoot everything in RAW and process through Lightroom initially and then Photoshop through Lightroom. I will continue my quest.

How about creating a color/hue/tone mask for the hills and another for the sky?
