SleekLens gave me their Landscape "Through the Woods" Lightroom Preset Bundle, in exchange for an honest review of their product. This bundle comes with 51 presets and 31 brushes. I have been using Lightroom 4 to edit my photos for a few years, but I have not done much with presets before.
I love the ease of using presets. I can click one button and instantly change the look of my photograph. There are 12 all-in-one presets that change settings across the board. Most of these are a little too intense for my taste, but I do really like "Shine into the Sunset", as well as "Dawn Rising" and Heavenly Warmth" which I used in the examples below:
The other presets focus on individual settings where you can increase clarity, pop the colors, reduce highlights, add a vignette, etc... These are very handy in adjusting specific settings based on the photograph. In the photograph below I added a white vignette at the end of the editing process which helped to soften the image.
While I probably won't use every all-in-one preset, the ease and quickness of the individual presets makes the editing process much easier and quicker. And I really appreciate how you can stack the presets, enabling you to make as many changes as you need. I highly recommend this preset bundle, as I feel it saves a lot of time and can easily take your photos to another level.

Caught up in the whirl of your love,
What dreams lie in your heart?
"You are never too old to... dream a new dream." - C. S. Lewis
You are original and rare,
Stretch wide into all that is possible.
For the winter has past
Flowers appear on the earth
And the time for singing has come.
Do you see the new all around you?
Expand, stretch out
Make your home in hope.
