CR Enb 308 Ken+ Cinematic Blue+ Cinematic Blueinkish+ Cinematic Greenish uploaded and ready to download. Enjoy the final work of my preset! 
Info about the above mentioned 4 presets:

1. Ken -> Epic preset with a touch of cinematic adopted of darkened green color and tints but still, the realistic atmosphere was kept with contrast boost, my second favorite presets with hundreds of hours of adjustment.

2. Cinematic Blue -> Best of my cinematic series alive again in 308 series with blue tinting but not that overdone.

3. Cinematic Blueinkish -> Another adoption with sepia effect on, more desaturated than Cinematic Blue.

4. Cinematic Greenish -> The other preset adopted to meet a bit of green colored, looks great too.

**See the 308R section for requirement and installation, and please refer to the image section for load order(same as 308R)**.

PS: 'Tis not a short neither a long journey during these three years of modding, CK using and codes writing were drew from these days I spent on Enb making and tweaking, and the time for leaving this behind and pursue other goals of mine has came. See you guys in TES6, and farewell for now. Thanks those who support me these years and those precious feedback!

I left the Letter Box effect checked on 308R, if users somehow find the Letter Box Effect annoying, please follow
ㄘow to
turn off Letter Box effect step:

First, go to the folder called "enbseries", and find the ini file named enbeffect.fx.
Open the enbeffect.fx ini and found this line, LB: Letter box size, in %=8.0, simply alter it to, LB: Letter box size, in %=0.0, and there you go without LetterBox effect.

*Screenshots of 308R were at the front of my image section, though some of them I placed at the bottom of image section, go and see for yourself before downloading this preset.* And plz note that all the screenshots were taken directly in game, no further editing or parameters tweaking.
Recommendation and notes to the users:

*For the best looking of your characters, highly recommended using Skysights male textures, as for female, mature skin is without a doubt the best to go along with version 308R. 
Please also note that other skin textures would not look that good as you perceive they were in old 292 version. And why? For 292 realistic ver,  there was a yellowish mixed with orange tinted palette in use when making it, it turned out that the warming tone would be a make up for the textures and enhance the skin of character, though the disadvantages were more than the gain of beautication of character, and it turned out that I found a balance without palette in 308R. That's the reason why 292 still got labelled as the main file, for there were uses prefer the characters tone of 292 other than 308. I personally prefer 308R with skysight male skin and mature skin installed, looks great than 292 and that's what I could say unless I'm tastelss in the skin texture. 
**For best gaming experience plz also go for Real clouds, for the best immersive gaming experience while applying this preset.

1. PureWater or RW2
2. ELFX 3.0 
3. CoT V5.0
4. Vivid Clouds and Fogs - Vanilla and Climates of Tamriel (textures included in 308R package, and other alternative cloud textures made by me also included, essential for 308 and above series!)

*Important note of 308 Series*:

**All of my presets do not compatible with Remove Exterior Fog and Revamped Exterior Fog.**
**Do not use other COT Weather Patches as the CR ENB already covered these.**
**Use ELFX MOD without Enhancer.esp ( use Enhancer esp only if you still feel the interior and dungeons look too bright.)**


CR Enb 292 Realistic Ver released.
Please scroll down and  read the requirement and installation sections before downloading this preset.
Esp load order is the same as 272 beta ver. See the image section for more images.
Please be aware that due to the mods used of each user, setting, and the differences of every monitor, the final result would be slightly different in game.
Set the "contrast", "color grading or grey grading" and "R","G","B" parameters to 50 in your monitor setting to experience  the similar result I would like my preset users to observe.

Features compared to 272 Realistic beta ver:
1. Enhance SSS.
2. Enhance ambient lighting/lens flares/weathers/water.
3.  Performance friendly.

Have fun and happy gaming ;)
