Hazy Cityscapes

I was on a cruise around New York Harbor recently and took some photos of the skyline. Unfortunately, there was a hazy sky obscuring the top of the buildings in some cases. I did not know how to compensate for this. Any suggestions?

  A UV or haze filter can help some. Generally, heavy haze is not a resolvable problem with the exception of post-processing. The key to great cityscapes is patience. :)

Justin S.   You could try to use a circle polarizer to cut out a considerable amout of the haze and add pop to that blue sky.
