    Not trying to lay any blame here but that photo looks like it's edited. If it's original, cheers for the great effect.

    The blue composition of the background against the green/sharpness of the mountain. But, I'm no photography expert, I was only expressing my first opinion. It's probably a polarizer + depth of field effect, but it's nearly 5 a.m. and I'm an ignorant drunk.. so don't take my word for it.

    simmilar things like this happen in australia at the "blue mountians"
    The gasses from the eucalypt trees create a blueish hue, thus being called the blue mountians, i think i have an appropriate photo here i took recently too

    Well, I threw it into photoshop under some major zoom. Not sure if it's chopped or not... but this was my area in question.

    Distance always creates haze like that, just look at faraway hills and you'll see it. I generally remove it whilst processing RAW files
