James - Thanks!!
I love the texture in your photos, that night shot is well done. That is a beautiful area. Do you have a favorite ppp? (post picture process)
Jadlh - It is a mixture of a few things.
1. I LOVE the NIK tools. They are amazing once you get to playing with them and see how they work. I use them in almost every shot.
2. I have created my own RGB & LAB curves mixture with special layer masks.
3. I have also adapted a few Vincent Versace Tips from a class I went to.
Between these three items, I am starting to get a "signature look" to my work. I also put some Dan Margulas Tips in my workflow as well. Always growing and trying to evolve that gap between what the camera sees and what my senses experience.
