Thanks for comments Paul. No I didn't use a tone mapping.
First used Polarization Filter ,then Vignette Filter, then give the image a low key look which darkens the image, then use the Polarization filter again thats approx how I did it.

Bill i passed the picture to the (model) he thought it a great picture and has taken it home. No doubt most of his family will have to look at it for years to come. But it is a super picture and very nicely photoshopped.
