Re: Sony NEX HDR Lightroom preset for metal in daylight

Of course I used it as a base preset and then edited exposure, saturation, contrast, vibrance, recovery as needed and to keep the bright skies I used a vertical graduated filter for the top 20% of the pics with some exposure raised. I used a bit of noise reduction in the color channel to clean the look

I like to get plain files with the nex set to standard mode instead of vivid to have more versatility in PP, also remember the nex doesnt overexpose its just that composing under sunlight with an LCD tricks you to make it look goo don the lcd instead of trusting the histogram.

I know there was a lot to be improved on the files but it was a 30 minute edit so theres a lot room and detail that can be unleashed. Since I always aim for a powerfull mood than correctness I remembered the 90s matte painted posters that were hanged in my room, I hate the clown dream palettes that come from most HDR specially on nature photography but this time I think it worked out.
