searching for a tutorial

i've found a before and after photo retouching on a forum:

i really like this kind of photography: nice color, nice glow (seems like a big brush preset there). Somebody know how was done and can recommend me a tutorial ?

I am going to be blunt.

You need to learn photoshop first, no tutorial will help if you don't know PS. What you see in the picture is Photoshop 101 ! basices. If you can't tell it is Lens Flare, it is layer mood, or a mask with soft semi transparent brush, then, no tutorial will help!

Fast way, is to make a new layer, fill with black, and blendmode Screen, use Lens Flare Plugin ( 105 mm preferred ), and after that use Hiue & Saturation to color the light effect.

From that photo I would have thought you could do it with a white to transparent grad set to soft light either on a dupe layer with opacity adjusted or on the image layer and then Edit->Fade. Is Lens Flare filter even necessary?
