Haze (or fog, mist, and other atmospheric phenomena) is a main degradation of outdoor images, weakening both colors and contrasts. We propose a simple but effective "Adaptive multiple color channel prior" to remove haze from a single input image. The dark channel prior is a kind of statistics of outdoor haze-free images. It is based on a key observation - most local patches in outdoor haze-free images contain some pixels whose intensity is very low in at least one color channel. Using this prior with the haze imaging model, we can directly estimate the thickness of the haze and recover a high quality haze-free image. Results on a variety of hazy images demonstrate the power of the proposed prior. Moreover, a high quality depth map can also be obtained as a by-product of haze removal. As a result, high-quality image can be recovered with lower computation complexity compared to patch-based dark channel prior. Also extracting two layers from an image where one layer is smoother than the other. This problem arises most notably in intrinsic image decomposition and reflection interference removal
