Here is a list of almost 1,000 opinions. Some good, most bad, but it's all there:

Perhaps it has more to do with proper lighting at the capture stage.

The basic lighting needs to be good... I use Photoshop to get the image looking the way I want it...

his work is very good but his work is a composite of many shots and a lot of photoshop. maybe not the best example for getting it right in camera.

Shoot landscape orientation with semi-hard, three point lighting (one key, one kicker and one background). In Photoshop, make a curves adjustment layer and select the blue channel. Raise the shadows up and lower the highlights. In the green channel, raise the shadows about half way as the blue channel to push the shadows more towards cyan. Viola! One very popular cinematic color grade amongst many.

I chatted with Gregory back in 2009 and he said he likes to get everything in his image tack sharp. To achieve that, he uses focus stacking technique with help of photoshop. But his storytelling is mostly achieved by using cinematic lighting.

These 2 were shot minutes apart at the same location. The day shot used a diffused speedlight as fill from the left. The day for night shot used the same speedlight as a strong key light. The sun backlight was the same for both. The post production was just working with tonal values and color for the two looks.

That's what I wanted to say. There is a lot of post production done to footage before any video or movie is released.
