    You can achieve this tone by selecting the right color balance to begin with.

    Shadow : to blue cyan
    Desaturate red and adding some cyan

    hope it will help

      Re: how to get this toning ?

      I'm trying to get better at retouching and thought this was a good before after to practice on. Had some down time at work so gave it a try to replicate.

      Here's the result http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/j.../retouched.jpg

      It's definitely not 100%, the skins not as polished but it was done at work with amouse and it's in the ball park I think.

      Main edits were soft light layers to dodge and burn on the skin and t-shirt, with some healing on t-shirt as highlights were blown on jpg so couldn't bring detail back. Colour work was curves and selective colour, initial curves trying to correct overall image then a curve for the skin affecting the greens and blues to balance it and a selective colour layer to try and fix the reds. then built some contrast and pushed a nice rich brown into the image with a solid colour layer. Not sure if it's good enough and most my techniques are probably wrong but I can share psd if its any use.

        Good stuff for practising. I tried it in several steps, see http://www.michielvisser.nl/wp-conte...training-1.jpg

        (1) Original
        (2) Color corrected to natural skin tones. Lot of reduction of the reds and some minor tweaking on blues and greens. Also overall reduction in brightness esp midtones.
        (3) Make skin transitions less steep through frequency separation + add some dodging and burning (I know, I'm learning)
        (4) From (3) to end result I adjusted the colors with curves on the numbers. Set 4 color samplers on shadows (hair!), midtones and highlights, wrote down the desired numbers and adjusted curves according to desired end result.

              I think your work very good, love Input details . But it's a bit overretouch, that too perfect for portrait
