I'm always struggling with photos which contain large zones with trees situated far away from the camera. Haze and pollution cause severe changes in colors, which means that the trees lose their natural light orange-green color, and appear in a sort of brownish green-blue color, darker and desaturated.
Here's an example. The photo itself is bad, and is used purely to illustrate what I mean by the change in the color:
Here's the original photo in DNG format.
Is there anything to do to improve the photos during the shooting?
I tried to use a polarizer filter, but haven't noticed any difference.
I know that there are haze filters, but looking at the comparison photos, I'm not particularly impressed. For instance, here, the right photo has the same unnatural color both for the sky and for the trees.
How such photos can be recovered in Lightroom or Photoshop to get more natural colors?
