What I Am Working On: Applying Multiple Looks

Flexibility is a feature of photo editing software that I really enjoy. In this case, it is the ability to adjust the amount of a look that you have added to a photo. The original file I was working with was this one:

ISO 800 f/8 0.1sec 34mm

I did some basic edits first, a crop, luminance boosting, and sharpening. From there, on a second layer, I applied the Luminar look Daydream. Then on a third layer, I applied a custom vintage film look that I have created. The second look I applied at 16%. Here is the result:

ISO 800 f/8 0.1sec 34mm

I think the final result is subtle and a bit dreamy looking. Feel free to leave a comment below about the edit or questions about my method.
