Blue Sky Dream is a free Lightroom preset that gives life and warmth to your landscape photos. This helps you capture nature's majestic beauty in every outdoor scene that you photograph. It gives enchantingly vivid colors, especially for green and blue hues. The varied textures in the landscape are also sharpened so that the details are accentuated. This preset works best on images of vast skies and lush fields.
Exposes the Details of the Landscape
Exposes details. Even with the dim exposure, the Blue Sky Dream preset adds more light to the image above. It brightens it by giving an impression of a somewhat sunnier day, even if a little overcast. Notice how the streaks of clouds remain entrancing with its wispy texture. The waves, too, appear palpably detailed as they crash in the shore. And we finally see the subject, highlighted and given more significance in the photo. These improvements are all because of the preset's enhanced clarity, increased saturation, and moderated highlights. With the tempered shadows and tweaked hues, the total effect is much more dramatic. The added vignetting further completes the look and acts like a delicate frame for the landscape.
Makes Scenes Radiant and Captivating
Exudes Radiance. Notice how the water in the After photo above is vibrant and crystal clear. You can see how the preset boosts the reflection of the mountains and the sky on the water. These are mirrored and the effect is stunning. The blue tones are more saturated now and the resulting shade is more captivating than the original. This Blue Sky Dream preset gives an overall ethereal feel that is visually more captivating. It has a unique surreal appeal that makes the photographed scene appear like it came straight from a dream. Use this preset especially if you have a lot of blue elements in the image.
Brightens and Enhances the Mood
Adds a warm and soft feel. Blue Sky Dream makes the sky appear sunnier and fresher. It adds a slight warm green tint to the blue tones to produce an impression that it was photographed on a light sunny day. This is ideal if you want to underscore the atmosphere of a bright morning scene. This free preset further enhances the photo by illuminating the details that were hidden in the shadows. We can now see more details in the After photo, like the grass and the finer textures of the landscape. This process gives a complete and polished feel to the image.
Adds Vibrance to Every Outdoor Shot
Makes colors pop. The original photo above is well composed but could still benefit from a boost in color. You can easily notice the increase in saturation, balanced by a decrease in luminance, particularly for top blue hues. This well calibrated tweak result to the punchy colors you now see in the after photo. The warmth and thorough brightening of the scene makes it captivating, too. Because of this ideal landscape preset, we can now appreciate every element in the photograph.
