This single image HDR test, starring model Trisha Bradshaw and makeup by Sarah Lynn, is an homage to the Connery-era Bond Girl. Both Trisha and Sarah nailed the concept. The picture got single image HDR tone mapping in Nik HDR Efex using a preset I named "Realistic Nude", followed by levels and curves adjustment in Photoshop CS5.
The first shot looked a little "catalog clean" to me, so I took it through processing in Nik Color Efex Pro to make it look like a Fresson print. I think the grain makes the tie to the '60s stronger.
The monochrome was processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro using my "Grainy Nude" preset.
