Ok, who mentioned HDR? This has absolutely nothing to do with HDR. Contrast, sharpening and DNB. Look how obvious DNB is on the hair.

Look at presets of NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 or HDR toning settings in PS
With D&B, you may work 6 hours, go ahead
But I can spend 2 seconds only LOL

I appreciate the mention the freeware, but you still miss the point. The work isn't typically done once you apply such a pass. Most published work has a lot of detailing, yet it doesn't take anywhere near 6 hours for a typical image like this. 2-3 hours including spread across 2 passes to cover all retouching would be more realistic.

Getting the deep greyish skintone and some of the other details where you would use HDR only account for a fraction of that time, especially if you are certain of the desired results in advance. It does not have to consume 6 hours or anything close to that. I suppose if I knew NIK could easily reproduce what I wanted, I might use that too. It doesn't mean this is hdr.

They're referring to HDR simulation, but who cares... It's HDR, right? I mean it's got to be. It's also HDMI, DVI, CDMA, GSM, and every other technical reference.

One thing it can't be is masking and selective application of the basic adjustments. It can't be that. It's never that. It's HDR Nik Topaz AlienSkin plug-in because all the retouchers are suckers, only if they knew that it can be done in 5 minutes using such software...
