I'm assuming some pretty nifty Photoshop work, but I would love to know also.

Google cross processing....

But mostly, and assuming you have a quality image to start with:
- curves adjustments
- solid color adjustment layers w/ reduced opacity

Or search here on MM, because Peano has posted many great threads about this...

Pulling up the shadow ends of the color channels in curves will create a haze. In this case I think they also added a vignette that is lighter/hazier than the rest of the image.

- Curves adjustment layer

- Pull up the shadow end of the curve (makes the whole image hazier)

- Paint with black in the middle of the mask, huge soft brush, to knock that part out and leave the haze around the edges.

I've actually read that thread before but wasn't sure the look of the photos they were talking about cause most links weren't working =/ But thank you for once again posting it smile
