This year I went to a local park for a 4th of July fireworks display. I pretty much got some nice images using my Nikon  and Terry White’s firework shooting settings.  But  it doesn’t matter how good your settings are we still cant avoid the smoke in our fireworks pictures. Thanks to the Dehaze effect in Adobe  Lightroom CC  I can remove the smoke from my pictures in a second simply moving Dehaze effect slider to the right. Moving Dehaze slider to the right from 0  to +100 you are removing haze/smoke from your pictures. Moving the Dehaze effect slider from 0 to -100 you can add a haze effect to your pictures.
