For me both are pretty similar with one exception: lights setup. I'll try to prove it someday

P.S. I didn't once touch the Highlight / Shadows adjustment, or High Pass, or Unsharp Mask. Go Figure!

It's like saying "hey, look at my driving, is my Formula1 driving style getting better?"... when u got a Daewoo.

LOL. You know Adrian.. with superb quality work like that you are bound to get the question: How the .... did you do that? Great lighting of course but what steps did you do in photoshop. Please?

I don't think we ALL do...
It's just amusing that people start these threads and want info on how to turn a natural light photo into a Dave Hill photo with Shadow Highlight & High Pass!

What do you think about these:

The secret is good lighting, dodge and burn, contrast and some structure
