Such Wonderful Color Casts

Got a question for all of you PS wizzes. I loveee how this photographer does her color casts, i know she does them in photoshop, using mostly curves and selective color layers. Try as i might to fiddle with these i just can not get color casts to look that good. Can any1 point me in the right direction?

here is the link to her PS actions that she sells, i specifically like set 2.

You're probably right. Looks like she adds color layers with masks and reduces the opacity quite a bit.

I can only see one example and not a body of work from the link you provided, but, to be honest, I'm not overly impressed. I think the color values she used for that example are too light and soft for such an action shot. JMHO.

Hi ryanfashion,
Curves & selective color adj. layers should get you in the ball park like you stated in your post. Selective color adj. layer, whites c/m/y -100% blk 0, neutrals c-17/m-27/y+5 blk +17, blacks c+29/m+9/y+3 blk -1. I tried this and its looks close to one of the color casts.
