I recently spent some time in Galway city, in the west of Ireland, and while I was there I was taking some photos around the harbour and the railway station. As I was capturing the images, it occurred to me that they had an urban decay feel to them, and I thought they would be perfect for my Industrial Iron set of presets.
Once back in Lightroom, I set about processing and grading the images. I used my Industrial Iron set, and mostly the “Industrial” presets (0-5). the dull day, and overall Industrial gloom of the mages worked really well with the greens and muted tones of the presets to create a sense of almost post apocalyptic (sorry Galway!) feel to the images. Here are some before and after examples:

And here is the finished set of images:
