The haze function does a good job for what it is intended to do. I don't use it every day and on every photo. Is it worth it? Well, I'm using Lightroom CC 2015 and I'm glad I have the function. But I don't know if it would be worth it to you.
I just shot a wedding where the back ground is a mountain scape with haze
and if I could clear that haze up the photo's would make the photo's
Is the CC LR better over all than LR 4 or 5?
You have been using Lightroom 6. Overall, is it better than Lightroom 4 or 5? Lightroom CC isn't going to be a lot different from Lightroom 6. Yes, you will have that dehaze filter, But it doesn't have an erase brush with it. So you will have to just try it to see if it does what you need it to do. The filter does a good job, but it doesn't have to a lot of controls. The filter is either applied or not applied in different levels.
Ok thanks, going to watch a you tube video for now, have to update my
operating system to yosimite
I hope the dehaze is going to work for me
What I have found is when I use the Dehaze slider it also affects the the
skin tones adding red, so I then decrease the contrast and then do adjust
the the color temp as well.
Over all it gives the photo's slight to moderate improvement

Dehaze seems to change the local black point so adds contrast and saturation. You can either decrease the contrast, or decrease the satuation/vibrance or a little of both to make skintones look more natural, although I think I'd keep away from Dehaze with human subjects unless there was actually fog or haze between the subject and the camera.
I will try your sudjestions
It is certainly unnecessary to move from LR6 standalone to CC just for the DeHaze effect. There are some threads on this forum showing you how to invoke it in the standalone version ... incorporating how to generate presets to a slider plugin, take look at:
Thank You BKKDon,
As of now the Dehaze effect is adding more work to bring the skin tones
back to normal and have a minimal effect of the back ground of the photo.
Not sue if at all it should be used
if people are in the photograph. I agree it is a bit gimmicky now that I
have spent an entire day on the subject. The dehaze ads a red ruddyness
contrast to skin tones
Yes, I have the same thoughts about it and especially, as you say, the effect on skin tones and the overall color shift, I would have thought that a Levels function would do it a lot better.
