Thought I'd have a go at this. Used a 50% navy blue layer in hue blending. Selected the skin and adjusted the tones, then wound up the contrast for a little more dramatic look, excluding the sky portion of the pic.

I had to try too...I use contrast and blur/blending modes to change the mood. Nice link...lots of interesting images on his/her site.

EDIT:
What a lot of BS on this topic
This can be done with one single shot. And it's not that hard either.
And if this is what you wanted I could work it out for you. Put some more time in it and tell you how it was done
Really? What a constructive comment to make. Care to enlighten us all on exactly how it's done then

Does this look too bleached? I used both Hue/Sat and Selective color adjustment layers. (With the Selective color layers I reduced the amount of black in the reds to lighten her skin). I darkened her lips and lightened her eyes. And that was about it.

Only playing
I like what you have done, but still think he may be using more than one shot to create the look. Reason I think this is.
If you look on HEIMO's advertising portfolio and at the 07 broadview shot. Take a close look at the spectators. Notice how the light source on the spectators is different. 3rd and 4th men from the right have light on their left hand side. Yet the sun is clearly on their right. Also the sky is under exposed, yet the shadow area of the building is very light. This makes for an impossible shot IMHO . So it's either a marriage of 2 or more shots, or the camera can sometimes lie
I noticed that a few of the shots seem to have light sources/shaddows that don't add up. May be this is down to lighting or PS effects, but looks more like 2 or more shots to me

I can do glamour work, but it's not something I can say I am happy doing. I do some for local amateur photographers, but I'm nowhere near high end standard/speed. I wish I could show some of my better work, but getting people to sign over the right to publish them is nearly impossible.
I was looking for a few images yesterday, and had to hunt through 3000+ to find them. I have 200gig of stored hard drives full images, but just can't use them in the public domain.
I'm trying to get some old (100 years+) originals that I can do from scratch. Then have them as high res examples. It's just a matter of dropping on some damaged ones that have good subject matter worth restoring .

Woderful site. Here is an attempt at a recreation based on one of the photographs. I think it really does depend on the pose though. A little more dramatic would have helped.

I see the entire image a bit flat. I used my Illustrated look and PWL to remap the lighting.
