Exclamation How to achieve this awesome look?Any ideas?

Hey guys.

I found this talented artist and i really like his smooth style. Any ideas what are the key features of his technique?

Lets analyze it together!

The image isnt that sharp and i think he is using gradient maps to manipulate the colours. it kinda reminds me a bit of Dave Hill pictures combined with instagram . The effect is so subtile...

Just check out her face... it looks a bit blurred, but just a little bit,...hard to explain.

And if u look at the image, it looks like there is a haze or fog layer put over the whole image....

Hope u guys can help me and sby can take the challenge (Step by step would be awesome)

Feel free to try it on my vacation picture.

Cheers

Looks like cross process effect (you can create that with curves) and prob a gradient to create the colors and a selective color in overlay mode.

A lot of artificial blur is used as one can see viewing the sky and the ground in the second image. Sky is not blurred but the ground is. Maybe the sky is replaced.
Also no real blacks or whites.

I had a crack at your image. I hope you like what I have done. Also, if you would like to see the process I can email you the psd file. I just posted to photobucket because I had no other means of posting the photo, if you would like me to remove it, I will.

Cheers!

ps. Nice photo.

Most of the tones comes from the Curves layer where I made the image more yellow and some spots were painted in. Also changed colors on clothes. heres the .psd The top layer makes the desaturated version.
