    I think gooseberry's is the closest so far, but the subject's head has an odd halo. Still not quite there.

    Areality, I don't think it's a small DOF thing. If anything, I think these images are characterised by a larger DOF, rendering the whole of the head in sharp focus. This one is one of my favourites, so i'll use it as an example. Hope you can see what I mean.

    Rolzink --> Thanks. Have looked at it. It can be done as well for children or people without wrinkles, which is why I'm not convinced it's simply about increasing the contrast between shadows and highlights. I don't know. How could it work for children if that's the case? Also, more importantly, it's not quite the same as what I'm looking for.

    Hi Stoned, I think dodging and burning can do the job, though I have just began to learn, these are the links I find useful. The first link has nice examples and the 2nd link has good PS technics compares to the 1st link.

    Most recently, photo.net's photograph of the week also displayed this same processing. It's most certainly not the camera/lens as well because she uses a Panasonic FZ-30. I have never known the Panasonic FZ series to produce such output even though it uses a "Leica" lens, and a good deal of these shots were made outdoors as well and doesn't appear to be modified lighting.

    The photographer's work is here

    I haven't seen this sort of processing being posted here on CS before, but I was wondering if anyone can shed light for me on how this is done. The crispness of the images is just gorgeous. I'd be most grateful

    Ah, hi Stoned, may I ask, is this the same effects u're talking about also as seen in these pics by weekh? If so, then this is what I've been also trying to figure out. At first like u, i thot it was the leica lens, then i realized it wasn't. These pics were processed from raw images...I still hvn't figure out whether it has a lot or less to do with being raw images to get those effects.

    Here is my attempt .... I use the lips colours to compare and not skin texture as both subject defers too greatly to be able to achieve similiar "smoothness"


    Using this for comparision

    Look at the lips, the hair and overall feel .. dun noe if this is what its suppose to be but its fun to attempt:P

    Interesting... I did an attempt too

    Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

    There isn't really any special effect in these pics. The processing is ordinary.

    The first link appears to be very close to what I'm looking for. Thank you. 3-5% dodge and burn, woah, need lots and lots of patience.


    Thanks everyone who has tried, appreciate the effort. I'll give my own picture a go today when I get back.

    Yah, please share, when you have figured out the technique.

    As I mentioned, I have just started also, really, just 2 days back and I have tried on some abstract, not human though...care to comment?
