    this guy I know moved to korea to teach english and he travels all around the country snapping shots and i really like his post processing but he never has time to explain how he does it, hes busy, a bit of a douche, and also the difference in time zones..
    he does kind of a high contrast/hdr in alot of his stuff he says its all photoshop not hdr though. here are two examples. how could i do this in photoshop?

    I'm guessing, but high-contrast, low-brightness, slight color cast (looks like blueish in varying degrees in both examples), and vignetting?

    Is vignette a technique or a tool in PS?

    As a side-note, it's considered bad form and is against TPF rules to post someone else's photos. Since they're on photobucket, you could just post a link to them.

    Develop Module > Basic Panel > Play around with the Contrast Slider, and Brightness Slider.
    You might also want to use the Split Toning panel and the Vignettes panel.

    Edit: Also worth mentioning that Lightroom 3 Beta is currently free of use.

    Love Lightroom. LOVE it. Greatest photography tool I've used... other than a camera. Get it. Go with the free LR 3 Beta and start saving a little to be able to purchase a license when it goes live.
