Question Another toning question

Hi everyone, I've been looking at some toning techniques because I see that my images lack that part of the process. In my free time I like to create some photo compositions for my portfolio and also for practice but I'm encountering that the toning part is not very clear for me... I mean good subtle toning.
Searching the web I found this great example from Saddington Baynes, it's a series of color toning images that look really great. My question is how could I get this particular tone: see the image circled in black.

Thanks for any input regarding the image or/and toning techniques in general.

See you around.

Re: Another toning question

ah i see....this doesnt seem too hard to do. The easiest way i can think of is using a gradient map. Gradient map can handle this quite easily, though u would have to use a mask on the GM layer and then select the colours in it, to something similar to that.

Re: Another toning question

I was trying to find a good image that i have use gradient map on but i could only find these 2:

this one if u pay attention to the trucks ont he left side of them u will be able to see that they have a small amount of color thats slightly desaturated but its on the side. That was done with gradient map. The point was to put a different color but not too strong to distract from the front of the truck.

this other one was for a dvd wrap that i worked on. The gradient map is more clearer here in the sky of both sides of the wrap. Then theres another tint on the house itself.
