    Hi, Technology has improved and now expectation is to get ultra high resolution image with effects. Can experts point out how this is achieved with a photoshop or any other adobe tool. I have been struggling to understand whether its a real clicked photo or achieved through tools.

    Your help will be very much appreciated and beneficially to the community to raise the bar of our work. Thanks in advance.

    I've sure the first has quite a bit of post processing, probably exposure adjustments, maybe some colour tweeks, noise reduction, doge and burn layer.

    The second looks to me like it was shot with good lighting placement - strong backlight and some fill from the opposite direction. Sky colour looks to me like it might have been shot in tungsten WB with the flashes gelled to balance it out. This probably also has some post processing though I'd expect you could get 90% there with good lighting alone.

    I would say that both are 90% good lighting. The first is using at least a 5 light set-up, and definitely has a bit of processing intended to produce a 'gritty' feel. The second is using 2 lights with a much 'cleaner' look. Both images are primarily the result of good planning and technique, and NOT an over-reliance on post-processing.

    Yep. It's mostly about light quality, direction, and photographer skill and knowledge used to produce most of what the photographer wanted when the shutter was released. No doubt there was some post process image editing , but becuase of good planning and set up before shutter release it wouldn't take much editing.

    In particular note the likely use of a tungsten WB camera setting/gells on the lights Weepete mentioned regards the second image.
