    Wow. I wish I could help. They are fantastic. One of them looks abit like it has a Nik software pastel finish but with a whole lot of other processing besides.

    Looks like an awefull lot of localised doging / burning, maybe localised skin smoothing. Some destauration maybe even a mono adjustment layer, except the eyes which look like they have had a hue/saturation adjustment.

    The lighting is also crucial, I looks like multiple light sources. M big vignette applied only to the background.

    Its similar to some of the work by Delone and Uppercut on here . Its a style made famous by Jill Greenberg and Dave Hill. Interesting both have moved on from this a couple of years back.

    The problem with this kind of pp is the killing of skintexture so it has to be done very carefully. I guess there's some local curves treatment (would be my way to process it) and some slightly dodge use on a 50% greylayer. The saturation has to be lowered and the vignet is set in later. Maybe in this one the compelte background has been put in later. I do like Greenberg's work a lot because of her controlled pp and use of lights. To achieve a certain effect the main lights are very important. You'll have to use one keylight in front above the model, two stripes from the back left and right, a background light and most important a very well balanced light straight above the model. I believe the first one who used this kind of lightsetup has been Yousuf Karsh. I believe he is the greatest portrait master in modern photography. Dave Hill is another type of work. Much more scenery and pp used.

    Your too modest Raudh I remember some of your early images in this style some of the best of this type I've seen, mainly because they had a twist - I loved the Dali tribute one you did a couple of years back.

    Thank you Nick. I know which one you mean. It seems my head can be used as a Dahli Wink.
