Photo Diary: City Lights x Neon Lights

I usually post-process my photos on Adobe Photoshop. Before I bought my new laptop (it's a Macbook Retina Pro 2015 model, and I regret nothing) two months ago, post-processing was a daunting task. Aside from the fact that I edit photos individually, my previous laptop worked very slow that sometimes, it can no longer open Microsoft Word. I can't blame it, the laptop's already seven years old, and the hardware's already outdated. It can no longer catch up with today's technology.

Ever since I installed Adobe Lightroom on my new laptop, post-processing became a breeze. I got hooked on the travel presets. There are so many presets available online, some costs around ten to twenty bucks, but the choices are endless. These Lightroom preset had helped me in curating my Instagram feed.

Two nights ago, I had the time to explore Lightroom. Fast forward, I created a new preset. It works well on cityscapes that were taken at night time with bright artificial lights of buildings, skyscrapers, and street lights.

Just let me know if you liked this Lightroom Preset, and I'll be more than happy to send it over to you.

PS: I am not a professional photographer, just a hobbyist.
