How to achieve such rich dreamy tones?
Nov 23, 2006

I'm wanting to take my photoshop to the next level, toward the fine art corner. Is there a major technique you are aware of that is being used on many photos you'll see on such places as Photo.net, similar to these two?

The tones and lighting are so rich, they just pull you into the picture. I'm familiar with PWL, Gothic Glow Actions, and Blending modes. Is this just a combination of these actions?

Thanks in advance,
Mike
