whoah, i can't tell you how much fun i have playing with all the sliders that come with Photoshop Bridge's RAW format viewer. this image isn't so much 'digitally manipulated' as the levels have been diddled with. i think i am addicted to a new toy for a while! if you aren't shooting RAW... you really should give it a whirl.
inspired by Dawn's awesome macro flowers and Gary Martin's sleek high-key shots. :-)
