No dodging, The only thing I have done in PS was resize and sharpen and adding the frame.
Everything else ( tone, curves, etc) was done in ACR.
So my question came from the wonderful light and how much you were able to paint with light vs the "find" and careful eye in timing and composition.
When I looked at your recent Chinatown portrait I went to your link to see how it is done. And I was amazed at the starting point and transformation, including the knowledge, skill and talent to paint with light across the face. While you generously offered information on your link, to me it felt like a great painter saying here is the canvas I use, the brushes and paints, and the subject. You are truly an artist.
