duplicate ur images then channel mixer choose blue filter and set on luminosity blend mode than hue+ saturation -choose ur red and desaturate till u like the tone and also u can lower the opasity on both layers and the dodge and burn , but d&b u must do to archieve or u can ur gradiant map with and brouwnish color and play with slider hopes it help but im shure some other artist will give ur better solucions

I like the original. The other two look over exposed IMO.

Somehow agreed. While painting highlights and shadows you have to be careful to not to make moves that will wash out the details, you just have to train your eyes. Technique wise you are going right just making right decisions with lights is needed here. Also highlights look cooler and shadows are warm, tones needs to be evened out as well.
