Re: A step by step, Help with this please !

to better get that style start with probably -2ev exposure
(protect the highlights),
+ better illuminated subjects on dark background

here's what I did:
--step1--
selective colour (absolute):
reds: +cyan, -magenta, +yellow, - blacks
yellows: -c, +m, -y, -b
whites: -c, +y, -b
blacks: -c,-m,+y,+b

exact values will differ from image to image,
and you can probably get similar results with localized hue/saturation corrections

--step2--
curves (in lum blending mode),exposure
(+ a few spots of self-multiply to push slightly the colours and contrast)
