No one any idea? O. k, let me start with the left one. I think it's a sort of gradient map used.

It would help if you credited the photographer/artist who created the images, it would also help if you included a link to the artists website, even more help is available by searching the forums here as there's already plenty of good advice on this particular look.

The simple answer is: pumped up contrast, not a lot of color saturation.

If I were doing it, I'd have a curve adjustment layer providing the contrast. I'd add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer on top of that and reduce the saturation to -30 or -40. With less color saturation, you're able to push the contrast further without bizarre color casts occuring.
Of course, there's other ways to achieve this look, but this is where I'd start.

Try a black and white adjustment layer on a blend mode of soft light and then play with the sliders... maybe you'll get what you want.
