How to get results like this?

Look at the article further down a bit called "Photo Retouching - Tea Party"

Im just curious briefly what steps people take to achieve results like that? To me its so hard to try to guess what exactly needs to be done to get the colors to come out that way, thanks for any help!

1. Cleaned up dirt, debris from the photo
2. Using the High Pass filter i increased the sharpness of the image
3. Increase the brightness and contrast
4. Desaturated the image
5. Spent a lot of time on Dodge & Burn to bring out the highlights and deepen the shadows
6. Flattened all layers
7. Duplicated the layers and applied a slight blur with opacity of 30%
8. Reworked the Level and Image Vibrancy

Thanks a lot for sharing how you accomplished this. I am curious to how you went about desaturating the image, did you just entirely desature it or did you just slightly reduce the saturation with the hue and saturation tool perhaps?
