        I don't mean this in any kind of sarcastic way ... but use the right flash in just the right lighting with a good camera. Gets all three effects together. Might be how that photo got that way.

          yes it looks like just straight proper photography work and i doubt there was any post production work done to it. if there were i'm sure efforts would have been made to bring out the invisible detail in the shadow areas.

          that's the biggest problem i face as a retoucher. i constantly get the crappiest photos from people expecting Photoshop to be some sort of magic solution. someone gets a digital cam and they automatically think they're a pro photographer. they have no concept of lighting, exposure, white balance, image noise, etc. starting off with a well done photo like this makes a world of difference in the end result.

            Another giveaway is the blown out face and hair on the woman on the left. Obviously no post production work used on this area. I say photo straight out of the camera.

              I do think there was a very slight bit of smoothing done. The girl on the right shows it. If the image were larger it would be easier to detect. Something looks like it was done beyond straight out of the camera.

                I see the same smoothing on all their faces. A diffusion filter on your lense will do that as easily as Photoshop. It only seems so prevalent on the right subject because she got the best exposure. The left subject is a little overexposed. The subject in the center is a little underexposed (too orange in the shadows). If you look carefully, they all have that smoothed skin tone, though. It's just more obvious with the correct white balance on the right subject.
                That's my opinion.

                    Or maby duplicate your layer. Some Gausian Blur on the top layer and set the layer to overlay.

                      Looks to me as though the figures have been cut out and juxtaposed on the background.
                      The edges look unnaturally sharp.
                      Just a guess.

                        Gaussian blur overlay

                          I had the greatest urge to start by saying:

                          Take two pretty girls and etc, etc.

                          But that would not be very helpful, would it? Sorry. I will let everyone get back to being helpful again!

                            i also think, copy the original layer, use gaussian blur and as layer mask "soft light". then play with the opacity.
                            good luck
