What about a new hairdresser???
Great shot, quite agressive in toning and balance, but it fits the picture very well! I like it....

Thanks everyone!

Unfortunately the style in which I processed the image wouldn't be a repeatable result...

I've practiced the David Hill style for some time and learned the fundamentals are in the lighting of the image as well as a lot of layering in photoshop. The process is different for every photo and to make one image now takes me 30-40 minutes of processing time and my degree is in graphic arts so I'm burning through at a much higher pace than most people would. The first few times I did this style it took a day or so to do it and now I have a somewhat repeatable result that takes a lot of tweaking depending on how I lit the image and other determents.

David Hill effect? Close to it I see. I like the processing style with a lot of impact

And I can image it with the nudes too!
I'm thinking of a beauty emerging from the urban-industrial-waste grunge look.

Liking what it does with the skintones.
