Romantic Hues in Black and White

Pastel Hues. What sets this preset apart from other black and white presets is its understated pastel tones. This heightens the emotions being portrayed in the photo. Highlights are tinted with grey-brown tones, the shadows with a tinge of violet.

This preset also makes a lot of intricate adjustments in its black and white mix channels: yellow and cool hues have greater luminance, while some mid and orange tones are intensified.

Add a Majestic Feel to Architecture

Detailed Architectures. There is nothing like black and white photos to bring out the historical significance of a locale. B&W Romance is perfect for featuring elaborate architecture because of its crisp details and balanced highlights. To reveal textures, the preset increases contrast, clarity, and some grain. Some blacks are tempered for a softer and wistful impression.

An Artistic and Cinematic Vibe

Timeless Scenes. The example above shows how these improvements come together. It is a capture that now appears like a movie still. The monochrome treatment largely gives it its vintage cinematic look, further enhanced by the vignetting. The softened blacks, as seen on the man's coat, adds to the romantic appeal. All in all, see how this artistic B&W Romance preset marries the enduring appeal of monochrome and pastels together.
