And Curves, people. CURVES CONTRAST!!
I have some good Metro:LL screenshots with SweetFX before/after:
For those shouting "overexposed!". As in all, "good" is a matter of personal tastes, and I like the increased contrast between dark/lit environments. Makes stealth more stealthier and keeps away the dusty & washed out feeling. The wonderful thing about SweetFX it's that is highly tweakable and as such, once you get the grip of which does what, you can custom it to your likings on a per game basis. Is easy as hell and can be done on-the-fly:Alt+Tab, change a setting, into the game again
Add to that all the functionality of the vanilla CCC+AO for games without AO support, FXAA, SMAA, LOD adjustment, a variety of vsync/frame limiting modes, tweaks, HQ screenshots, HQ video, benchmarking, FPS counter, etc etc etc. A pretty good tool I must say...if only you were capable of downsampling(in time) and adding bits like in Nvidia Inspector, it would be perfect
