Ok, I'm trying this and my results are getting better with every detail you add. Many thanks, Ben!

If one layer is desaturated, should it be the bottom, middle, or top layer when blending?
Thanks again,
Will

Thanks for reminding me. Please play with the "opacity" and "fill" sliders to garner the effect you are after. After that, I go in to "Shadow-Highlight" and compensate for the increase in contrast to bring out more of the shadow detail and reduce the highlights.

By the way, do you flatten before doing a shadow/highlights? Thanks again!

Good Question

You can do that for each layer and save your file as a three layer 16 bit image or flatten. To benefit from the larger file, I guess you might "S&H" for each layer, which I often do.

You know, I haven't really noticed. I also often have just one B&W layer and the other two, one being the original and the other duplicate in colour. Play around with it. The colour layer the more saturated it will be. Don't forget the "Fill & Opacity Sliders". Mine usually end up about 60-80 for each...

I've used various permutations while experimenting with this method over the past few days. I know there must be something to it because someone who has no idea that I'm messing around with this has noticed a difference.

Comment on one of my recent photoblog posts in which the method was applied:

I am pleased that you are finding this approach helpful in adding to the impact of your images.

Bumping this thread because of its possible relevance to the current "sensor glide" rumours.

Was I ahead of the curve or what? Looks like Pentax used my idea...sort of.

I don't have this reference but have an indirect reference to it, describing pseudo interlacing to a shielded array, to reduce pitch of the physical pixels.
