Re: Help me achieve those tones

I was not trying for an exact match, your image very different as far as overall lightness goes compared to your first example - unless you mimic the overall look including background and light direction you are going to get a different feel.

The point I was trying to make is that you should be able to introduce any shade you want by adjusting a curves layer. You should be able to either apply overall colour change or bias changes in either highlight and shadows just working with a single curve layer. You could also make selective changes by masking.

Tony, i know my image is different. And I dont have any image with similar lighting. That's exactly why I posted Damien image.
Even with his image, I could not mimic his look. Make me curious about his way

Re: Help me achieve those tones

I think you will be better off to shoot at a brighter exposure to begin with, but here is a rough fake on a couple of your photos. These aren't that great since I only took 30 seconds, but here are some things to play with: pulling the dark end of the curve up, warming the image using curves--particularly in shadows, or warming filter. Stamp image and run the diffuse glow filter to taste and experiment with opacity/blend mode. Gradient map if you want with peachy highlights and warm brown shadows.

I hope you don't mind, I also used another image of yours that was more similar to the posted image.

Please note that this color on these is out of whack and not very nice right now, I just wanted to show quickly that you can pull your images in that direction. I'll leave it up to you to find the right combination of shooting and post.
