thank to all

@julianmarsalis the desaturation adj is the simple Hue/Saturation adj level.

At the bottom of the layer palette click on that round half white half black icon and choose Hue/Saturation an -20/-25 is my choose but go with taste

Appreciate your willingness to share, but in my opinion I think that it is a little to blurry.

Always takes some one to scare people off here...
Cli don't listen to him and thanks for sharing "your" way of doing it.
And your workflow...
You even took time to post images of your layout...
Thanks,
There is always some bone head going to say something negative..

If you do not like the blur, then don't put blur in..
Ya Moron!

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

I thought I was positive enough with my criticism to not warrant flak but apparently not.

I wasn't being a jerk about it at all. I was just contributing to the common good mentioning that I thought it was a little blurry... perhaps I'm alone on that opinion but I feel that there needs to be a little bit more texture.

Cli... like I said, I appreciate your willingness to share your technique and I think its has some great potential. I merely said it was a little bit too much on the blurry side. If we are not allowed to criticize on this forum then what is the point?

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

Maybe this should be a side post, but in some ways it still applies to part of DH. Cli..what camera are you using and what was the ISO of the shot? What impresses me with many shots is the smoothness of the body but the sharpness of the edge...I see very little noise. I shoot with a 40D and L glass. Using noise ninja with high pass and even low ISO I don't get the smoothness/sharpness I see in many high end shooters. Is this the camera? the light? the retouch? Maybe all three, but I'm still not there with the retouch....I still have issues with the noise/sharpness compromise. I'm still not where I'd like to be...

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

remember that 40D and L glass (actually ANY camera and L glass) may suffer from small shifts in the AF. If you are using AF a lot and notice that it's slightly back or front focusing you need to send in the camera and lens to a canon shop so they can calibrate the lens with the camera.

Note though if you have several camera bodies that this calibration will only guarantee it for one body + lens. The others may have different shifts.

I had to do that myself on my 40D & 70-200 F4L lens.
