I have had a request to create an effect similar to these, in PS:

As far as i can tell there is a curves adjustment to "dull" the black and whites, and a gradient map to get the tints.

I'm sure I've missed something or thinking about it the wrong way.. any help would be appreciated.

Using flares on different layer modes will help.

Might not need a gradient map. The blue highlights are pulled down quite a bit more than the other two channels, which accounts for the yellow cast in the highlights.

@fxMatter  Yea i was thinking of that, I'm guessing its just a normal flare added at the end

@Peano  Ahh right, thankyou Peano for pointing that out, i'm getting better results by manipulating the blue channel.
