Help me understand how to create this

I've come across this set of pictures and I really like how they look:

It looks like the image is desaturated with yellow being the dominant color, however I would like your input.

This effect should easily be achieved by 2 adjustment layers, 1 to slightly desaturate and a curve layer, you are going to need to play around with your curves until you get the desired effect, bear in mind that the effect applied needs to match the mood you want to create.

Curves adj layer and play around with the individual RGB colour channels. Apply "s" curves, reverse "s", dragging corners up a notch or 2 will give milky shadows and subdued highlights. Mess around with opacity and blend modes and have fun.
