"I've never been a fan of presets, I normally prefer to edit each image according to its own merits. But then I tried Richard Wood's lightroom set and even though I've been using them for a few years now, they are still hard to beat. I love the simple, natural, timeless feel they create. Other preset packs often contain dozens of options with nothing that really works for me, but in this set I have found a number of little rockstars."
