competition: lightroom light leaks preset


after spending time going through pages and pages of amazing submissions my competition has sadly come to an end! i really love all the photos everyone submitted, thank you so much for taking part in this! i have ten lucky winners who i will announce in a second, who will be able to use the lightroom 4 light leaks preset before anyone else.

here are the winners + links to their entry, in no particular order:

congratulations!! i will be contacting you all individually over the next week to have your prizes sorted out :)

thank you again for sharing all your beautiful pictures xx


in anticipation of the release of my new lightroom 4 light leaks preset, i thought i would hold a little competition! i've never done this before, so it should be fun!

5 lucky winners will be chosen at random to win my new lightroom 4 light leaks preset. here is a little example of what it looks like:

light leaks contains two different presets, with two varying light leaks to add colour to your image. it hasn't been released yet, so the winners will be able to use these presets before anyone else. see more examples in my latest blog post, aurora.

the winners will also receive a free unreleased photoshop action that i was going to put up on digital film but decided to make an exclusive prize for this competition. but that's not all! on top of that, you get to choose one more product from digital film actions of your choice to be all yours.

now, onto the finer details of the competition!


- a free copy of the lightroom 4 light leaks preset before it is released on digital film actions

  1. I liked your facebook page even though i cannot participate in your contest since i dont have photoshop to even use your curve :(

  2. I would love to participate - but the submit button on the form seems unresponsive for me. So I'm unable to submit anything.

    1. maybe try again i a few hours, it might just be a temporary bug of tumblr or maybe too many people were submitting at once.

  3. I don't have a Facebook account, can I still enter?

    1. yes, just include some sort of way for me to get in contact with you in case you win.

  4. я не совсем поняла как принять участие в конкурсе, хотя все перевела!

  5. Awesome, I've participate some photos!
