Urban Lightroom Presets

These urban presets for Lightroom are designed to be used with city photos, particularly photos with lots of street lights at night, although many of them also work well around photos taken around sunset or sunrise.

These presets are relatively light and don’t have as strong an effect as many of my other presets.
