Need advise on this type of style

How does he get color this kind of color? the skin tone is really pale, did he desaturated the orange? or yellow? but the green is so vivd and the scene looks bright.

Not perfect but, a tweak to curves (add red, minus blue, s-curve to compsit channel) and HSL (decrease master saturation, increase blue) and it's in the ball park.

Re: Need advise on this type of style

thx flashtones i actually tried it myself with s curve and a warm filter for that one.

i am still trying to figure out how he did this one

i know there is no original photo to compare, but i guess the road was originally greyish and the skin tone was more saturated. Do you guys think he introduce yellow to the green and desaturated the blue on this one?

I like the pavement, never seen such silvery stuff as that.

As for the rest of the image, my guess is that he bumped contrast with curves, then in HSL he desaturated and lightened reds, added sat to green and yellow.

Just a guess though.
