Can anyone identify this technique:

Hi, I'm very much impressed with the processing on these photos, does anyone have an idea about how he's getting this particular look in each of these images:

If you check out the images, you can see that they have a kind of "glow" to them, but they also have an amazing amount of visible detail to them. It's hard to explain, but hopefully someone will know what I'm trying to say. The photos also have a great front-to-back sharpness.

If anyone can share light, I'd really appreciate it.

The colorizing may have been done in camera with filters or post processed using a color overlay or Adjust->Photofilter. Mask out areas you don't want affected by the filter.

Thanks for the reply. I don't think that would affect the particular kind of sharpness though, it's very characteristic of a personal post processing technique, rather than something that would come straight out of a camera. The same goes for the peculiar way the light "glows" in the images.

I take it was shot on a tripod with multiple long exposures with high aperture (sharpness front to back) and it shows some signs of HDR around a couple of the windows. as for the glow im not sure exactly how that was achieved but im sure its no mystery.

Yup, I'll second the idea that there has been some exposure bracketing. And some very nice dodging/burning. And glow: could it be a blurred layer overlayed in softlight and masked back?

the glow you will get from doing HDR's the way he has, i dont think he has put an effect on them, they are just very good quality HDR's, i do HDRs but i mainly do landscape HDR but when i do indoor HDR mine get a similar glow.

I think it's a combination of HDR and focus stacking.

Re: Can anyone identify this technique:

Focus stacking isn't really necessary if you got good glass, time and a sturdy tripod.
