Best Lightroom presets for landscape

I don't really like presets. I always edit my pictures starting from the basic panel; then I add some brushes to dodge and burn or to do some local changes.

Then Sleeklens contacted me to let me try their Lightroom presets for landscape photography. They've sent me the Through the woods bundle for a review so I accepted the challenge: let's see if I can change idea on presets.

Now I've installed it and I've tried the bundle on some of my pictures. I've to say they did a really good job in giving the photographer the option to stack settings. You essentially have a lot of basic presets that you can combine to achieve the final result you want. They also provide some brushes you can use for local adjustments. As you can see from the screenshot below I've edited one of my pictures I took in Tuscany with their presets and the result was actually pleasant.

Below you can see the before and after. I started from a balanced exposure to create a more appealing picture in this case using exclusively their presets and brushes.

Playing with these bundle I must say didn't change my idea about presets. I mean, I don't like it when they change your picture with a lot of filters. Presets stacking though is a smart way to speed up your workflow. I was actually already using some basic presets I've created to repeat some task I was doing over and over. So I guess this is a clever approach to make your workflow faster and efficient.
