Lightroom 5 Preset: Speakeasy

Here’s my sixth free Lightroom 5 preset, Speakeasy. This one adds some slight enhancement, mostly sharpening, contrast, and vibrance, without changing the overall look and feel of the photo. It’s quite versatile, and I use it on a wide range of photos, usually when I’m not looking to get too creative, but want to remove haze and liven up a shot a bit. One thing I often tweak after using the preset is the exposure, especially if I want to get more contrast in a shot with some sky.

Here’s the first example of the preset, a boulder on Mt. Cardigan:

  2. I have 2 problems with Van Deventer’s otherwise reasoned comments.1. It is a stretch (or evasion) to equate the killing involved with meat and dairy to that involved with plant agriculture. And to point to plant agr;uultcre&#8217is current dependence on animal products ignores many examples otherwise and the possibility of further moving away from that dependence.2. It was the faculty of Green Mountain College who turned a simple plea for mercy and an offer of sanctuary for two beloved hardworking oxen into an attack on the college’s sustainability goals and on all animal agriculture.
