I shot from almost this very same spot the other day. It was suggested to me to go back out and shoot it again using the auto mode on my Z740 and the landscape mode, as well as set it up on a tripod and use the 2 second timer. I did all this, and there is an incrdible amount of haze or blur in the shot. Is there anything that I can do to improve this one when I shoot it again? The exif data is readily available in this one. Your help will be appreciated.

Silver, are you using the Tcon in this shot? I find (at least with the 7590)
the landscape mode is not compatible with the Tcon

Yes I think I was, I though that the exif data would tell that. I took some with and some without. I will have to look at my files to see for sure which is the T and which is not. Thanks for the heads up on that. It says in the instructions that came with the OLY17 "The super macro mode cannot be used with this product". I took that in meaning that the "macro" mode couldnt be used but that the landscape could. My camera has a little flower icon for the macro and a mountain for the landscape, they maybe all do. So I had it in the "mountain icon". But let me look at the other shots and see which is soomed more, and then I will know for sure.

EDIT:

Dan I looked at the files and this shot was not with the Tcon. It is at 100 o/o optical zoom with no Tcon, and in the auto mode, on a tripod with the 2 second timer.

Dawg, it may have been a little. But I think I would explain it more as very light being reflected back at me, does that make sense?especially in thesky. Picture the sun almost horizontal behind me straight through to the sky above the buildings. And that sky was a cloudy very brighthaze. I really want to try the filter setup. I just havent purchased these yet. Geeze, this is hard for me to explain. I hope you understand.
