Made With Luminar: Tintagel Coast

This shot was taken near Tintagel Castle in 2019:

ISO 400 f/11 1/250sec 18mm

For the edit I was interested in cleaning it up a bit and making it pop. Nothing too crazy, but I started with a crop and removed a few birds that looked more like specks than distinct birds. I’ve added the Luminar Look, Dramatic Landscape, set to 100%. While I kept that filter at 100%, I did tone it down a bit by decreasing some of the contrast and vignette it had added. Here is the result:

ISO 400 f/11 1/250sec 18mm

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 include 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.
