yeah sometimes that looks akward.
but this is how we can recognize his work
maybe...or maybe brushing in soft light, overlay, screen or color?
i think he uses too the image/adjustments/replace color tool. maybe some polygonal laso for selections on buildings etc.

another think he uses a lot is some blur filter giving his works more depth of field and a "precise sharpen" look.

but my guess is he is workin a lot with feeling.
and he is doing that for years now
he explained time ago how he did know some Japanese girl on the street and days after she was his model. that was feeling definitelly.

i love what he does too.

Re: Hakan Celebi color proccess

Hakan has some great colour processing techniques, and it's really refreshing to see a photographer of his calibre still retouching his own images (rather than sending them off to a retouching facility, like most agencies and magazines basically force you to do). I try to do the same with my work when I can - it just feels so much more personal when you've taken the photo and edited it too, and you've got complete control. It looks to me like he uses a lot of layers, curves, and possibly slight selective colouring in the neutrals.

You could probably easily reproduce it or something similar (or even better) using one of the actions on this blog:

which are very rich in colour - much like Hakan's images. I don't like to admit it, but I use their curves and actions quite a lot in my magazine editorial work. Actually come to think of it, Hakan might even use the colour film effects in the Alien Skin Exposure program combined with curves and layer adjustments... but at around $200+, it's a little too pricey and IMHO not really worth it.

But hey, whatever works for you.
