This preset is perhaps a bit strange at first glance, but you can also develop black and white photos in Color Efex.

The preset is specially made to create soft contrasts. The first version of the preset does that on the dark side, while sometimes the photo may not be too "black". That is why I have made a second version that is lighter.

Below an example of a photo that has been edited with this preset.
