    Some tone mapping (Topaz Adjust? maybe some Lucis Art on #1), other image editing.

    In the second one it looks like he did some smoothing on the skin, too.

    I wouldn't call that style "hyperrealistic". The skin looks like plastic; definitely lots of smoothing. I'm not knocking it though; the effect is pretty darn cool.

    it must be a single raw file conversion then?
    or is it easier than it seems at thought to make a 3 shot hdr with a person?

    I would really doubt that it's tone-mapping. You can get almost entirely to the finished product in these shots with shadow/highlight and unsharp mask alone. When in doubt, you could aways open a MM account and ask them.

    This looks a lot like careful lighting, unsharp mask with huge radii, and lots of local dodging and burning / contrast control.

    Tonemapping to this extreme usually makes an image look like it was vomited on by a rainbow carebear, this looks way more precise.

    :lol:

    Seems that unsharp mask with large radius is key here.

    I find the background much too busy and distracting by interfering with the subject, to make this an effective photo.
