Looks like good composition, some lights, HDR, and capturing the right moment.

Re: how to get this look? Scott Dorman

Here's an article about Scott collaborating with a photographer:
http://www.thefstopmag.com/?p=121

I worked with Scott briefly when I first entered the industry in 2000. Nice guy. He was then using a Quantel Paintbox in conjunction with photoshop. Pretty sure the Paintbox is not in his arsenal anymore though

That particular image looks like a multi-image composite. Lots of curves adjustment layers are probably used to create depth and shape.
I'm not sure how long he'd been retouching before I worked with him, but I'm guessing over 5 years. Add another 11 to that, and so to answer the question "how did he get this look?" boils down to this: lots of practice. I doubt there's any plug-ins or shortcuts going on here.

Yeah I think he used some HDR effects, I love the skin tone.

Wow! Your so lucky I really admired his retouching skills. You're right I need a lot of practice to that. Thanks for sharing the article! I hope I can find a tutorial for that

Scott Dorman isn't the author of that photo, Job Hall is.

You can realize this effect with db (dodge and burning ) and use topaz adjust (clarify filter)

Looks like Job Hall was the art director. That behance site is for art direction, not retouching. Dorman's portfolio has the image in it:

His work is amazing.
I've tried to dodge and burn and have the calvanize dvd but still don't know how to achieve a look similar to this.
