Here’s a free Lightroom preset called “Gritty City.” I created this as a way to quickly warm up, vignette, and “grittify” urban landscapes, street scenes, industrial decay, etc. It uses a custom tone curve, bumps up clarity and vibrance, and adds a vignette. You may need to play around with exposure, etc.

BEFORE (no adjustments):Scooter - Downtown Atlanta

AFTER:
