Made With Luminar: South West Coast Path

This photo was taken on the South West Coast Path:

ISO 400 f/11 18mm 1/800 sec

For the edit I’ve applied the Luminar look, Retro Film, but then brushed that look out of the sky:

ISO 400 f/11 18mm 1/800 sec

So, the edits in the sky are a boost to the whites and shadows, sliding the blacks down. I’ve increased the small details slider and also used the sky filter. I don’t find the difference between the film filter being used in the bottom half of the photo but not in the sky to be too jarring, but you can tell me your opinion in the comment section below.

The Made with Luminar Series

This image is part of a project I am calling Made with Luminar. What the images in this series have in common is the software used to edit them, Luminar 3. As with my usual blog posts particulars of the camera settings can be found in the caption below the image. I’ll then explain what other filters and edits have been applied, often mentioning what layer and therefore order that they were applied. The text of these posts includes any Luminar “Looks” that have been applied to the photo. Each look is a series of presets that are applied to the photo. Where applicable I will mention what changes I have made to any of the looks. A full explanation of looks is available here on their website, https://skylum.com/luminar/user-guides/chapter-14-working-with-luminar-looks

You can assume basic edits have been applied. My most common edits are cropping, detail enhancement, and vignette. Specific questions or thoughts on the image are welcome in the comment section below.
