The preset for creating contrasting landscapes in black and white with a special appearance. The contrast gives the dramatic effect on the entire environment and gives an accent to clouds and sky. You can adjust the settings again to your own discretion, depending on the colors in the photo. By default, it works great on green and yellow colors in the landscape. Use the color sliders in the preset or control points for this.

The preset is specially made to keep contrasts in the landscape and sky in the right tone with an almost graphic effect. This can of course also be changed by adjusting the color sliders. If you want to know more about this you can read it in our documentation.
