How have these photos been colour graded

Hello. This is my first post on Retouchpro. I imagine this will seem like a very simple question for many, but would appreciate ideas on how these three images have been colour graded. Many thanks

Use "Auto color" to degrade it.

I think it used Color Presets in Lightroom.

Thanks Tulack. I tried to do this, but was confused by the results. There seemed to be the same change to the green and red curves, which I didn't understand.

Anthony A: Thanks. I thought it was probably some kind of preset, but wanted a breakdown of the actual colour changes.

Presets are just recorded steps, so this statement make no sense.

Grading depends on original image.
First image is not graded.
Here is other two.

Re: How have these photos been colour graded

Thanks Tulack. A little confused by the curves on the first image. Raising red and green in the shadows should cancel each other out as they are opposites (same for the highlights). I can see for example that the reds have been raised more than the greens in the shadows. Would this mean there is an overall small increase in reds in the shadows? If so why would someone raise both the greens and reds instead of just raising the reds a small amount? Thanks again for your help

Tulack: It's ok, I was being stupid. Red is opposite of Cyan not green and magenta is the opposite of green.
