Hi,
First of all it looks like the model has possibly been comped into the background.
It also looks like it's a more subtle example of HDR imaging using something like photomatix.
Hope this helps.
Simon

thanks Simon...I do HDR my friend, but these images look like paintings and still so sharp!

Re: my first submission here is a question ;-)

Well, the image was shot with a reduced aperature (stopped down) obviously, seeing that the foreground and distance was in perfect focus. The detail would imply that it was either a large format\high-end sensor. No doubt the sky was either burned in or layered to bring out detail. As far as the colors and contrast, I believe that this could be obtained with Nik filters (Brilliance and warmth, Pro Contrast, skylight and perhaps tonal contrast).
I for one really like this saturated/high contrast style, incredible detail . . . very impressive! The only thing I find to be somewhat a distraction is the sky color above her head, it has a tendency to draw your eye there, but that has little to do with your question. This is also one of those situations where the fly-a-way hair actually adds to the image.

I would have loved to have seen the original, untouched photograph. This is top shelf in my opinion.
