Nick,
I love that shot
Can you give us a quick overview of your post processing? (I really like the low-key color look here).

Thanks!

Sensoji Temple; Tokyo






Despite being the tourist trap, its still worth visiting because its convenient to reach and a beautiful temple. ( ok.. not really a trap since no one pushes anyone to buy anything in Japan)
Last time I shot this place, was 10yrs ago on my MZ-5n
Now its with a K30+DA15ltd

At the San Diego Zoo this morning. 55-300mm lens really gets you up close. Used it for all except the young Maylayan Tiger, which was pacing back and forth behind a glass wall, hoping it could eat the nearby children.

The bird at right in the second picture is a Sulawesi Green Imperial Pigeon, ducuta aenea, from Indonesia.

Hi, thanks.

Well basically it's a mix of desaturation + split toning in LR4.

On this one the vibrance is set to +27 and saturation to -39.
Then for split toning I chose a yellowish tone for the highlights (hue:52, saturation:22) and a blue-ish tone for the shadows (215, 28).
Also adding clarity and playing with the tone curve and contrast helped to get the dramatic look.

But please note this was shot in a really grey day, so all the colors were already rather muted. Not sure it would work the same during a bright sunny day.

Hope that helps

A couple of shots taken with my father in law in Mount Penn Reading, PA to get him to see The Pagoda up close and Lake Antietam in the valley behind the mountain.
