Posted on: 11 February 2008

I finally took a look at Matt Kloskowski’s newest preset for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Here’s the before:

It was a very foggy morning on Highway 99 as I traversed my way to work. Here’s the after:

With the click of the mouse it looks like I was traveling at night! Now, here’s what changed (or at least the primary changes).
Before:

Notice in particular how the temperature cooled down quite a bit and the blue luminance was altered. These, I believe were crucial to the “darkening” or “night look” of the new preset. Thanks Matt.
