Made With Luminar: Playing it Cool

ISO 400 f/11 1/800sec 18mm

Shot on the South West Coast Path in April 2019. I’ve used the Luminar Look, Cool Tones, set at 100% but then I added a mask, set the brush at 50% and erased the look out of part of the sky. I then set the brush to 25% and erased the look out of part of the foreground. The mask is very subtle, but sometimes it’s these little differences that are important to the overall image.

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.
