Does your photographer have vision? Find one that does.
Just a side note: the final result is a painting. There's no Photoshop filter that can create the beauty of hand-painted image. This is the result of a few hours of work in a program called Corel Painter. The only difference is the Wacom is your brush, and the monitor is your canvas.
Ps. This is the only time I've ever posted the original straight-out-of-camera image of this particular shot online. Count yourselves lucky. :)
