David, I'm a huge Lightroom and PS6 user (I enjoy post processing as much if not more than tking the actual photos) . I do not recall a dehaze slider. Matter of fact I just looked for it. Where is it located? I'd love to try it out. I on the other hand use the clarity slider quite often as well as the sharpening slider under the Detail adjustments.

Dehaze is found in the Effects panel group. Also it is found wirh any of the localized edit tools (adjustment brush, radial tool, and GND).

Boy, we must be working with different versions or something. I have Lightroom 6 and have looked at the Effects panel as well as the local edit tools and find no signs of the Dehaze slider. I would love to try it out though.

***Update*** After Googling it and reading the Adobe page it seems as though some features just released in the latest update are not available to the stand alone LR6 version. Which is what I have. I opted for the stand alone software rather that the CC version of both LR and PS6. Damnit. Missed the boat again.

I will have to look for it as well. I have Lightroom 6 but don't have photoshop. I do use the clarity tool. I sometimes use the output sharpener tool in the nik collection as well.

My concern is that I want the overall image foreground and background to have sharp details. Maybe I am being to critical of it but when I pixel peep on other photographers I see some amazing overall sharpness. I've been trying to read and watch some tutorials about better picture taking and I have picked up a few techniques that I'm going to try (i.e.. back button focus more often).

I use back button focus, why? I don't know, just because I guess. To my personal naked eye, clarity and sharpness come down to megapixels, other than proper focus that is. Some of Davids photos to me are stunning just because of his camera. When you can produce 45 or 50 megapixels per image, you have so much more data to process.

Nothing wrong here. I find it very sharp when you view it on the Flickr page.

It's only $10/month for LR and PS...well worth it to me.

I'm seeing a difference - a solid positive difference - with the new camera Mike. Looks great.

I dunno much about composition, to me composition is simply "eye pleasing". I love this picture for the halo effect around the outside of the door edge. Fantastic.

Thanks David. I joke but in all seriousness I truly feel like I'm in the upwards curve of learning photography and who I want to be. I see a little improvement in the quality and I look forward to learning more. I think I might take a class. Right now all I do is get advice on different boards and scour the internet. I'm getting ready to venture out West again towards California with a stop at the Grand Canyon so I hope I can find some gems there as well. Thanks again for the warm comment.

Thanks Darrell. I've shot this numerous times but the tighter crop on the door and surrounding area came out just the way I saw it and it was pleasing to me then. I truly appreciate all the help you've given lately.

That's s good question. I have both and I use both but for different things. I really think I could get by with just Lightroom but since I started with PS years ago I feel I just always need to have it around. Security blanket I guess.
