A young boy of the Miao minority; photo taken in January 2009 in a mountain village near Kaili, Guizhou Province.

Nikon D2X with the 180/F2.8. Captured at maximum aperture, 1/160s, 200 ISO. Developed in Lightroom 2.1 based on a variety of (adjusted and finetuned) presets.

It is easy in LR to create your own presets. In any case, here are a couple of links where presets can be downloaded:
- Adobe Lightroom - 27 free presets by Bryan Wheeler
- Presetsheaven - Presets and LR tutorials
- Inside Lightroom - Presets, tutorials, tips & tricks
- NIK Software - Probably producing the best plugins for PS, Aperture, and, soon, also for LR, NIK is the developer of acclaimed NX1/2. The plugins are not free (far from it), but well worth the price.
