Really interesting shot and good composition. The Hill effect works very well here.

You should search Dave Hill here, or google it. It is essentially a post-processing technique to add contrast and sharpening to acheive a specific look. It is quite common in advertising and is probably over-used all over the place. Some photos lend themselves to it (as I tried to do here).

Thanks for the info. I read up on it and saw some of his work. The pp in this shot looks a little more subtle - very well done.

It might be over used by others but you used it perfectly. Great work!

So if you have never heard of the Dave Hill technique, does that mean you are not utilizing his technique and it is your technique? :D

Nice photo, and I hate to say it - shame about the processing.
Just because someone became famous doing something different, doesn't mean replications carry the same weight. This could have looked wonderful. I am so tired of Dave Hill, HDR, Vignetting, Orton Effect, Selective Colour, Fake Bokeh, Tiny Towns, blah blah blah

...or maybe, I'm just feeling grumpy :)

I agree w/ Deckham on the processing. The Dave Hill effect doesn't work with this image imo.

Nice shot nonetheless.
