    I posted this about a year ago, but I redid the processing to bring out more detail.

    How did you "bring out more detail."

    Smart Sharpen and High Pass?

    That, and it's an HDR from 3 images which brings in even more data.

    Forgive me if you think this comment is unneeded, but in my honest opinion, the Dave Hill/Dragan post-processing style is simply a fad.

    So is dieting, but that doesn't make it bad for you.

    Having said that, I am a definite slut for these types of photos.

    You misunderstand my point. But I'd rather not derail the thread. So...okay.

    I suppose I'll bust out my obscene condescension with regard to that one. From what I've seen, people tend to love that effect the first few times they've seen it. After that it gets old rather quickly. People who don't get over it, either through endless attempts to copy it or persistent admiration of it, I think are positively stupid.

    I agree that the effect is overused. I mean, I totally thought it was cool Max, at first, but now it's just getting old, repetitive, and ho-hum. The shot isn't bad or anything, but like, you know, it's just another over-processed BW portrait.

    I think it's a fad too but having that out there, I'd love to know more about how it's done. I have read the post and I've done a little research on it... but I really haven't taken the time.

    As an "art form", I think the technique behind it is noteworthy. This is a good shot, for what it is. I'd like similar work in my portfolio.

    Kudos!

    With or without all the processing, I think it's a good image nonetheless.
