I removed it, I dont want anybody to retouch 72dpi files. I did post only 5-point lighting effect, not any DH-effect.

Guys, You can get more or less the same exact affect with a couple clicks for those lazy people..:+]
If you have Nik Color fx pro 3.0
Copy your image and then use the tonal contrast filter and tweak it.. you will be 85% there!
Then you need to do some Desat and sat and some dodge and burning where you like!!
It is important to have the lighting and the Subject as close to the look you want first.
Just did it with Mtmm pictures and got the same effect in 5 minutes! Literally.
I also think dave is adding some grain to his pictures, that can be done a thousand different ways...:+}
Also either adding Beahc bypass or using Amy dressler select colr range whites and filling a layer with those whites to make the highlights whiter.. very easy..:+}

the overall-effect is handmade! basta. only to get some tiny little details on the skin or wherever you like you could use plugins like lucis. but use it with abstinence and only locally.

Why spend money and waste time on plug-ins when you can achieve this look without them?

Mtmm I copied your image and did the same effect in 5 minutes.. since you do not want people posting your image I decided not to.
I put your retouched image next to your image retouched by me and got the same exact effect.
I used two plug-ins. The ones I mentioned which are basically doing the same thing you are with the contrast mask way.
I also then through a Amy dressler select whites trick to it and it is pretty identical to yours. Just your skin tones is a little different but that can fixed in 1 second.
It was just for the people that want to get there with out all the tonal contrast masking bla bla bla..
I also used your bleach bypassed you mentioned in an earlier thread and it works pretty darn good. Good enough that is.

Snook I some how do not believe you got the same exact effect Mtmm is getting with one-click plug ins.
