Being a copy cat can actually be of some help when learning. I've always said the best way to learn lighting is to copy your favorite tear sheets from magazines. Copying post techniques is a great way to learn. Once you learn how it's done, you can put your own vision into it....after all rules are meant for bending and breaking.
That said, as a film shooter myself, the above image looks flat and lifeless to me. All images that originate on digital look flat and lifeless to me. Especially those with a VSCO or any other attempt at making a digital image look like film. But since 99% of images end up small and compressed on a blog I guess it doesn't really matter
Thank you guys, i'm not trying to be a copy cat, just want to learn more
