How to get this look?

I'd like to know how to get this look. I guess it was shot on a cloudy day, but I'm interested in the post process.

Re: How to get this look?

Try something like this. Use levels layer where you slightly decrease highlight tonality and move the midtone marker to the left. Then you may try some curves to change colour - perhaps reducing all colour curves a bit might get you the colour theme (red a bit, green even less and blue a bit more), then underexpose your image and voila! Show the results please.

Well I took the liberty to steel a picture from this thread and try your suggestions:

This is the closest I could get.

Re: How to get this look?

I think the main problem in trying to work out how to get the effect is not knowing what it was like in the first place. With some shots there are visual clues which give you an idea of what the original probably looked like. But with your example there are very few. There is no indication of whether the colour was cold and bluish or a glowing sunset orange. And there isn't a lot of helpful info from shadows either.
