Fallout666, the EXIF won't say much at all on shots like these, where the quality of light is the difference between a snapshot and a good photo.

 

That said, some words on the ideas and philosophy behind the finished result might spark some interesting discussion. A wider view that shows the light sources can be useful, but without the reasons why, won't help anything either.

…the EXIF won't say much at all…

 

Peter is absolutely right, the EXIF meant something when there was a
direct correlation with the final image but with digital images… no more.

Peter is right again to bring up other points that are really more signifi-
cant like the approach to the composition and/or the light conditions.

It all happened prior to SR where I planned to use the split toning effect
the workshop was offering. From the workbench left, a large window of

mid-morning indirect daylight and an incandescent light bulb from the
ceiling that was warming up the shadows instead of a colder reflector.
No flash.

Composition and discrete split toning — through WB difference in light
sources — were the aim for this job. 

HTH!
