Turn Day to Night in Luminar

Did you catch this one on YouTube?

I LOVE creating and sharing videos on YouTube.  Literally, I would use the word love.  It's so fun for me, and I will keep doing it as long as I can.  I just can't believe I waited this long to get started.  I'm doing my best to make up for lost time.

My latest creation that I shared there is the subject of today's post.  I take a rather boring, drab photo shot in terrible light and turn it into a lovely, somewhat mysterious creation that appears to have been photographed in the evening.  And yes, this is all done in Luminar by Macphun.

It's a combination of gradient and radial masks, along with some filters and even some of my own presets.  Bottom line is that it's quick and easy actually, although I will admit it does not work on every single daytime photo.  Take a look and let me know if you have any questions.
