I love photographing sunsets as much as the next photographer. Only most of mine have a bird (or birds) in the scene. I was shooting sunsets in Alaska last month practicing catching eagles flying through the sun at just the right moment (a task that is hard, mind-numbing and incredibly frustrating as it is fun) and on the last day of the trip I had cooperative eagles but not much of a sunset. That is where MacPhun Luminar steps in.
Notice the first picture below. It is straight out of camera and while I got the bird in the scene and the exposure was right, there was just no pop to the image.

So I created a preset in MacPhun Luminar called "SuperSunset." It takes a boring, drab image and makes it sing. Look at the AFTER image below. It can be achieved with one simple click of the preset in Luminar.
