Color toning

I am currently working on some images that I would like to tone similar to this image.

The image is done by Mert & Marcus.

I have got the image pretty close by a combination of levels adjustment and a photo filter. I am puzzled as to how to achieve the correct tone on the skin.

I am very new to playing with color in images. So some guidance would be helpful

Re: Color toning

This is my effort so far:

This is unretouched and for color practice. Image by me.

Is the first image you show the original or one you have modified? If it is modified, where is the original?

If this 2nd image is your effort so far, then you have worked on it and it has therefore been retouched. But you say it is unretouched, so which is it?

Regards, Murray

Re: Color toning

Try adding news empty layer, fill it with a deepish blue/grey colour and set blending mode to exclusion and reduce opacity.

See what this gives you...
