How to get this look

Hi, I'm new here. I'm a student and learning. Could anyone help me understand how this look is achieved? Besides some changes in the colors to be more saturated, it looks as if the pictures have more "lighting"

quote from the page you linked to: "I have been increasing contrast by overlaying a B/W image at about 30% opacity and then a blue/green and yellow gradient also overlayed at about 10% opacity."

Thanks for point that out, I tried that and it doesn't look the same. I'm guessing there more to it. I've seen this same look by some other ppl on flickr as well, so I wonder if it was a common thing.

Looks like a pretty basic photo...dof makes the subject pop.

You could try duplicating the layer, desaturating (I desat by -80) and put to soft light, adjust transparency as desired. This will increase contrast and depth of color.

I do this with almost every photograph/rendering.
