The preset is made for street photography ! In this setting I use the soft contrast option of Silver Efex. This Streetworks preset that you can use in Silver Efex gives your photo an expressive look that fits street photography and portraits. I usually accentuate people by having a person highlighted with control points. The soft contrast works beautifully on the expressions. Of course it can also be used for other purposes, you can nicely try it yourself (I haven't done that yet). When using this preset I bring a lot of accents by playing with control points, of course you can also do this yourself. In the example photo I also made accents softer, for example in the faces by making the drawing softer with more light. In particular, playing with light also works well here. You can download the preset below. Install it in Silver Efex. At the bottom of this article there is a link to a brief instruction how to install presets.

Below you can see an example. On the basis of the images you can determine whether the preset is for you.
