What Now? This is one of the trickier fixes we've done. For fog or mist to look natural, it should be gradated -- getting murkier at greater distance. So we decided to "deconstruct" the mist from front to back. We made four separate adjustment layers in Adobe Photoshop CS3, corresponding to different planes, nearest to farthest. Within each layer, we boosted the contrast using Curves, applying the greatest effect to the near foreground layer and the least to the far background layer. (Increasing contrast, by making a sharper edge between adjoining tones, reduces the effect of fog or mist). This provided the added benefit of increasing color saturation in the mossy foreground.
