It's pretty much the effect I was going for... Cartoony and slightly surreal anyway.

Shot with a single flash attached to a monopod, connected to the camera with an extension cord so I could still use high speed sync (EXIF says f/11, 1/800th).

I overprocessed the colours for the cartoon feel, selected the sky and lifted that a bit, and then gave it a heavy-arsed vignette action on pretty much everything but Matt. Bit of dodging and burning for some detail enhancement. Finally duplicated the image, made a selection around Matt, inverted it and blurred gently, set the layer to hard light. Duplicated that layer, made a looser selection, added more blur and set to overlay. Oversharpened to taste...
