I live near the ocean and like to take a lot of pictures by the beach. But lots of times there is a haze in the air. I want to make my pictures clearer and sharper. I have tried taking the pictures and than auto enhancing them once they are on my computer, but thean the colors are to dark and do not look natural. Is there something I can do to take clearer sharper pictures when there is a haze?
If I bought lenses, such as UV or polarizer lenses to attach to my camera would that help? If so which would work? Or if you have any other ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps a technique known as local area contast enhancement may work for your situation. This calls for applying the unsharp maskfilter to you image with a very large radius (>50) and amount ~20%.

Also Light haze removal

UnsharpMask> Amount 20%, Radius 30, threshold 4

Stronger

UnsharpMask> Amount 20%, Radius 60, threshold 4

If you can mount your camera on a tri pod and hold a Polarizing filter in front of the lens. Rotate the filter until the haze is gone. Keep the filter in the position and take the image!

Good Luck
