Speed editing in Lightroom of a sunset during a summer day

It’s time for another 60 seconds editing using Lightroom CC. In this video I edit a landscape photo of a sunset. I start my editing by straighten the photo using the Crop tool from Lightroom. Sometimes you can get confused about your horizontal especially when you have no helping elements to refer to. Also I’m using the Crop tool to create a more panoramic aspect of the photo.

Then I shift the color temperature toward blue making it look cooler and also decrease the overall Exposure of the photo. I’m increasing the contrast and adding some details in the shadows. Now I have a photo that looks pretty dark but we’ll solve this issue really fast through some local adjustments in Lightroom.

In the area where the sun shines on the plane I’m creating a Radial Filter and increase the Exposure only for that place. For a speed editing tutorial I think this is the final result: now you have a much more contrast photo that has more drama to it!
