Baumatt,
I should have mentioned, using a gradient map does mess up the tonal range. If you set the blend mode to color, that helps quite a bit. Also, you can copy the original layer and move it above gradient layer and set the blend mode to luminosity. That way you will get the tonal range of the original back (assuming it was close to where you wanted it), and still have the color shift from the gradient layer.

nice! i think thats the way ill continue...i think the photographer clipped some layers (or handpainted them) to only accentuate the shadows and leave out the highlights, but i'll continue fiddeling arround (and trying harder =) ) with the gradient map until i get it right. thanks alot!

Heavy Shadow/Hi-light adjustment was done :: see the woman's hair
Hue saturation- decreased Sat by close to 50
Maybe a LAB curve:: A channel slight S curve and B channel- pulled up on the midpoint

Flashtones,
Thank you for the nice comment. I've got a few new portraits that can't be posted yet because they haven't been published. Also uploaded a bunch of stuff to foundfolios.com, but that doesn't appear to be live quite yet.

I've really learned a lot from you and many others here, thank you all!

Nice pictures, thanks for the tip! Any idea how these colors are achieved? besides desaturation and magenta in the shadows?

Quick way... approach it as you would do with a pink-yellow duotone, but set it to soft light.

I respect your magnanimity but your images have a sensitivity not learned over the internet. Like your personal work.

I'll be sure to check for new stuff from time to time.

@ flexmanta, how do you split-tone? I tried searching, but couldn't find any.

I would be willing to bet that his work is done with film and in the darkroom. From the pics I saw it is simply a cross-processed negative.
