looks like a number of color filters, high contrast, maybe some sharpening and possibly using color splitter to get the individual channels separated to work on.

nice results.

filters

Well I didn't mask out the shirt on the left side of the picture. I did copy the original layer and on top of that added an orange layer using color blending mode. I used the median filter to remove some of the freckles and approached the effect that was on the web site.

Oh - forgot to mention, that some of his works can be seen here:

I'm especially puzzled by what sharpen technique he uses. It's certainly not just Unsharp Mask, cause it's not introducing the same kind of artifacts.

How on earth do you make your photos THAT sharp and still so smooth looking?

Quite impressive sharpening, but maybe someone just blurred the “original” image to emphasize the effect.

Then a few other little things which were no big deal.
Didn't want to try to sharpen, so no work on freckles for me.
Could stand some creative darkening.

Maybe this will help.

On the left is Saturation.
The bottom has quite a bit more Sat than the top.

On the right is Luminosity.
The bottom is slightly flat while the top has more contrast.

So, maybe start with lowering Sat and boosting contrast in Lum.

edit:
Just did a quick check and the sharpening looks like High Pass to me.
Maybe at more than one level.

I also tried lowering sat and contrasting lum - the results with just a few tugs are rather close.

No one is close on dpreview either...

For What It's Worth: There is a fairly substantial thread centered on trying to determine how Borghetti achieves his end results. In my opinion no one has come close, yet. I must admit that he has come up with a rather distinctive style...interesting...
