There are few things more frustrating in landscape photography than the 'near-miss' sunset or sunrise.
You've felt the pain! It starts with you crawling out of bed at an hour normally reserved for bakers and vampires. Then follows an hour of staring at the sky, willing-on an epic sunrise. Things start to happen and you start frenetically photographing the day's first light. Then, without warning, the sunrise fizzles out and you are left with a card full of near-miss images and a nasty case of sleep deprivation.
I have experienced this hundreds of time - great compositions let down by disappointing sunrise or sunset light.
The presets in the Sunset, Sunrise Rescue Pack have all been created as part of the post-processing workflow that I use in my landscape photography business. These presets have helped to transform hundreds of seemingly boring photos into saleable images that have been published, printed and licenced to our customers.
Don't let nature beat you!
This collection of 21 professional landscape-optimized lightroom presets can transform your disappointing sunrise and sunset photos into visually spectacular scenes - often with just ONE CLICK!

What kind of images will this work on?
The presets in this pack cover a wide spectrum lighting conditions commonly found around sunset and sunrise. These will work best with candidate images that feature high contrast (dark shadow areas and bright highlights) and have a some colour present in the sky to begin with. Check out the example before and after images to get an idea of what will work.
