I made the Color Efex preset because I wanted to turn the day situation into a night scene. In particular, this setting makes landscape photos with water dark and detailed, but also with a certain nocturnal glow that is so characteristic of moonlight. The photo you see here is the basis for the preset, you can read more about how it came about in an article I wrote about the creation of the preset. I would definitely test it on other photos, I haven't done that yet, maybe the effect there is just as good. You can download the preset below. Install it in Color 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.
