The setup and lighting for this shot was embarrasingly simple ... Nikon D700 with a Nikkor 28-70 f2.8 lens set at the widest and maximum aperture (28mm @ f2.8). Since this shot was taken about 30 minutes before sunset, I used my SB-800 mounted on a Stroboframe to add fill light on the model. That's everything.
In Adobe Camera Raw I increased the saturation of the blue sky and decreased the sky's lumanance. In Photoshop I pumped up the contrast of the sky to make the clouds whiter and more dramatic. I finished the image by adding a Diffused Glow in an adjustment layer and masked off everything except the model, then lowered the opacity of the glow layer until it looked satisfying to me.
Now it's your turn to try it LOL
