Lunar Park is a free Lightroom preset that is ideal for images that contain reds and a broad range of warm tones. It gives a brownish nostalgic look that is reminiscent of carnivals, fairs, and amusement rides, especially of the 80s. It also gives a cinematic look that can be used as a thematic filter for a published collection of photos. It is a transforming and mood-altering preset that tints images with a stunning sepia-like filter and draws out specific color accents. It is unlike regular presets or Instagram filters; it is specifically designed to depict a specific look and feel.

Transforms Plain Images to Festive Retro

Festive retro. The retro look of the After photo is achieved because of the preset's distinct warm-bronze hue: warmth in the image is increased, and a brownish tint is added to the shadows. This adds depth to the textures and adds detail throughout the shot. Notice how brightness is increased and how the reds serve as accents. These hues help establish a theme; the russet feel emphasizes the distinguishable charm of amusement parks, especially as the preset highlights the red metallic colors. The resulting image therefore captures both the classic charm and festive atmosphere of such particular scenes.

Makes Warm Colors Pop

Vivid warm tones. The After image is brighter, sharper: highlights are increased for more light, shadows are added for greater depth, vibrance is boosted, and clarity is tweaked for a more textured photo. These adjustments transform the photo's mood radically: from a snapshot of a signage to what looks like an opening movie scene. Notice how Lunar Park preset also works well for photos rich in warm colors: the signage's yellow background and its contrasting letters pop much more and looks more retro. The sky in the background is also subdued to make the foreground elements the focus of the photograph.

Gives an Unforgettable Look and Feel

Unique aesthetic. While cool colors are subdued, warm tones come to the fore and establish an altogether different, bolder, impression. See how the After photo is now more compelling because of this preset: visual elements are heightened and unified; the focus of the image is now the wheel and its warmed lights; the blue is muted and is longer as jarring; all the lines are clear and defined.

You may use this Lunar Park preset for shots that have a lot of red and yellow elements in them; this can apply to various types of indoor and outdoor photography. It is the preset to use as you experiment on various complex moods, styles, motifs, and atmospheres.
