Looks like 'cross processing' with slide film
NIK has filters to simulate the same effect Colour Efex Pro 4

Re: How do they achieve this look and color?

There was a pretty monster thread over on Model Mayhem that was in the ballpark for what you're looking at there. Could be useful.

It seems that this is generally done with a few trips to LAB colour mode, for which I hope you're awake.

As for your orange light leaks, that bit is simple as pie. Make a new layer and with a big brush, make some streaks or blobs in a colour like #993300, blur it a bit and set the blending mode to Linear Dodge (Add) and adjust opacity to taste.

Great link, oneredpanther. Your specified color, however, doesn't yield the orange thingy that I was trying to get on my monitor. Perhaps I didn't do it right?

Sorry for my curiosity, but what is "few trips to LAB colour mode"? I try Lukau13 advance but never achieved this color? What do you do in the Lab mode?

To understand LAB color space, you may wish to read the following work by Dan Margulis.

I rather prefer your rendition compared to the original post's images.

One thing that bothered me about the original posted images is the film / flare sort of effect washing out a lot of the contrast. Looks like a light leak from the film days, but seems like there is a whitish cast all over. The color treatments are interesting but the whitish cast is distracting, at least to me.

mshi's go at it captures the color cast without the flare-ish effect, I prefer mshi's treatment in that regard.

Robert, thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. But, I found my first try had a slightly abrupt orange light leak transition, which is distracting to me. So, here is my second try and this time I added some magenta leak/reflection effect on the bottom right corner area. Any feedback is appreciated.
