Post processing filters - not sure bout this one.

Bloom - makes light sources "bleed out" into their ambiance

Global specular irradiance - light is reflected by various objects and surfaces. I.e. from the tarmac, other car parts etc.

Exposure compensation - makes light sources brighter

crepuscular rays - visible sunrays. I.e. when you're passing a tree with the sun behind it, you can see the sunrays. Also referred to as "godrays".

Post processing filters adjust the image slightly to allow a more natural look to the colors, especially grassy areas. You used to be able to cycle thru many different post processing effects similar to what is in the photo mode.
