Definitely nice to look at. :P But I don't get the title.

Bahhh. Forget it. I think faster than I read. :P

Please do. I like experimentation with lighting. People usually don't do this, because insignificant changes can lead to quite noticeable realism loss...

And let's admit it - we all are photorealism crybabies from time to time... ;) That's why you don't see unorthodox results often enough.

As promised, an ‘enhanced’ version.  (Curves, sharpening, black point... all minor tweaks to the original tiff)
Hopefully an improved version! :D

I think I like this better, though the hard versions also looked very good. But now I seem to notice that she floats a bit, but maybe she really floats  ;)

To be absolutely honest Jason, I prefer the low-contrast version. ;) I'd say it's more serene, imagination-friendly and... hm... well, yes, more sensual too.

Thanks folks, @Dune yeah I know what you mean re the floating, but I did check by setting camera below ground level to see if the feet were visible, they weren’t in the preview, I think it is the lack of shadow perhaps, maybe she is over enhanced lol!
It almost looks like she is coming out of the ground too!
I am split, I like the mystery of the darker version, but the rock/terrain details I enjoyed the latter ...
I initially only edited it for social media (Instagram - http://www.instagram.com/inkydigit ;) )
But decided to share it here to as it yielded interesting results, the post work was done with Snapseed on my iPhone! 
Thanks for all your views and comments folks, much appreciated!

I'm almost in agreement on this...the 'floating' thing isn't apparent in it. But it's nice to see the terrain texturing......
