Uno-Due-Tre a Firenze

Join The Squirrel Chase’s One-to-Three Photo Processing Challenge for November. I used Lightroom presets to modify the original (top) image.

The middle image was softened with a “Glow-Subtle Portrait” preset. My Lightroom preset library says it is a user preset, but I don’t make presets so I have to assume it is one I downloaded that was transferred between Lightroom versions. I like the dreamy quality created when the lines and edges are softened.

The third version uses a Contrastly Aged Film Sim Lightroom preset called “Kodak T-Max 3200 Aged.” The black and white tones emphasize that the shot was taken after dark with street lighting.
