Amazing Lightroom presets. Thanks a lot.

Nice ones.
I also recommend to check www.reallyniceimages.com Their presets are not free but definitely must have for any photographer and Lightroom user. My favorite product is their All Film collection where they recreated looks of the most popular analog films of the past century. Really amazing, works like magic when applied to digital photos. And a way better than Instagram :-)
