Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #42 – Creativity

The lens-artists challenge set by Anne-Christine is called creativity.  You can be creative in your photography and also creative when editing an image and the software you use.   As I do all my initial edits in Lightroom Classic, I thought I would take this image and process it further in Luminar 3

What I love about the Luminar 3 software is the ability to add Sunrays.

You can, of course, do brush strokes in Lightroom Classic to create sunrays.. but it is a painstaking job.  Whereas with Luminar 3 and Luminar 2018 you just add the Sunray filter.. place it where you want in the image and then change its appearance using the sunray sliders.  I just wanted a hint of sunray through the trees.  So lessened the look slightly with the sliders.  And again with Luminar software, you can create your own presets, which I did with the above edits.

  1. Looks like there should be a fairy landing in the middle of your sun’s rays Bren – quite a beautiful scene. I’d forgotten about that sun rays feature in Luminar – it really is very clever and easy to use. Thanks for the reminder!


  2. Real nice! This is what I’ve been trying to do with my Images, but just can’t get it right! I have Lightroom CC & Photoshop CC. Need written tut on how this is done?
