It's a little more than that. I find these various controls to be
wonderful to just explore options and different interpretations. For
those of you who pre-visualize the final outcome and use only the
necessary tools to achieve that outcome, something like this dehaze
slider is just another widget to ignore.

But I find it exciting to take an image and just play with the various
sliders to see what comes up. Sometimes it's bile, but other times it
ends up being magical. Cranking the slider to +100 has nothing to do
with final outcome, but it does present a vision of something
different that I can then use as a guide to achieve a workable final
image that uses that experiment as a guide to what is possible.
