Gray skies, and flat light can ruin great landscape photos and relegate whole photo missions to the dumpster of digital despair.
Most landscape photographers have experienced the frustration of travelling to a dream photography location only to be confronted by grey days while on location. The worst thing about grey days is that they seem to hunt in packs, I have spent whole weeks hounded by leaden skies waiting for the sun to make an appearance - this can be a costly and demoralising proposition for professional photographers and enthusiasts alike!
Mother Nature may not care that you spent your precious vacation time under dismal grey skies - but we do!
Cloudy day photography doesn't have to be about compromise - gray and flat lighting conditions can often make for some really creative and interesting images with a little 'Lightroom loving'. In fact, since I created these presets I have found that I keep on shooting even when the sky looks greyer than the paint booth of a naval ship yard!
This collection of 15 professional landscape-optimized lightroom presets can transform your grey day photos into visually spectacular scenes - often, with just ONE CLICK!
Grey Days Made Great preset pack features:

What kind of images will this work on?
The presets in this pack have been designed to work on images made in overcast, flat light, dull or grey weather conditions. Often in these conditions, although the light is flat, the contrast in an image is very high with underexposed foreground and overexposed skies. These presets will help to balance out these extremes and bring out colour and texture within your images.
