I'm wondering about that softness/noises/glowish look. Not only the skin editing...
It doesn't look like film, and also have that look. I hope you get what I mean

You can probably get the skin down using mostly channel mixer. Balance the brightness of the jacket against it to taste. Make sure that the background significantly contrasts the subject. Lighting accounts for some of this as well, but as you noticed, images don't appear this way straight from the camera.

Looks like there are some layers blending, but I still don't get it...

Then sit down and try to reproduce it bit by bit. Don't assume everything is a global adjustment. Be careful not to overdo your adjustments. It will be difficult to learn if you don't make an attempt and reflect on that attempt. Some people misinterpret things to such a degree that they go in the opposite direction. This is especially prevalent with any kind of image processing due to the way we perceive things.

It's HDR Monochrome, you can get that look in the various HDR applications like Photomatix or Oloneo

No one is going to shoot an HDR for this kind of job. It's a completely unrealistic assumption, even though it's possible to achieve a similar appearance that way. HDR does of course also require the use of 32 bit mode in photoshop if you wish to preserve adjustments, and even now that's still a bit limiting.

klev

Learn more about creating HDR from single shot, what's the problem?
In this case it's NOT D&B

Re: Any idea about how to get this look?

Many people would not have these applications installed, and you can produce the look here without them. I understand what you mean by HDR from a single shot. I don't think this is HDR at all though. Most professional retouching relies on masks. In this case I suspect there was also a bit of channel mixer to get that blotchy skin.

You can do this without HDR, and in most cases you would not want to use HDR. If someone rejects the overall look and you need to make changes, you would have to redo any other retouching a trip back to photomatix or whatever else.

What you're suggesting is not the only way to achieve this appearance, and it's unlikely that it was used here. If you're working for a photographer, they may change their mind. An art director may change their mind. The use of HDR would invalidate any other retouching, and you would have to reprocess the entire image.
