Does anyone know any good retouch methods for achieving very high quality
color toning? Kind of like the stuff they do in films.

Here's an example of a before and after of what I'm talking about:

Re: Color Tones

Thanks. I snooped around the forum for about a day and also looked through that thread
and I've found my answer. Solid color on colorize + masks seems to work the best... more specifically
red/green/blue channel masks and difference masks.

Now to apply it in actual work
