If you have Photoshop you can get results like this with "Selective Color" tool. open up your image go to layers window (F7) click add adjustment layer in bottom menu of layers window select Selective Color and go to the Properties Tab (should be open by default) choose Blacks in Colors drop down menu move Yellows down to -10 (or below) and Black up to ...

This look is a result of reducing the contrast of the blue channel, making the shadows bluer and the highlights less blue. You can do this with any curves or levels adjustment tool that lets you work on a single channel. Start by raising the low end until you get the amount of blue in the shadows that you want. Depending on how warm the lighting in the ...

My guess is that this shading is a result of adjusting the color temperature when processing RAW files. If you don't have RAW files to work with, but you have Photoshop or similar, you could create a layer and fill it with a shade of blue and then use the multiply blend mode while adjusting opacity for a similar effect.

tillinberlin comented this is solarization and he is basicly right in some degree, but if you use it on a positive image you get the wrong result: So, you can use a negative image or use the curves the inverse way solarization works. You can see the objetive of this step in the hair. After this you could use a gradient map. That would be a starting ...

My guess is that this was originally a scanned colour negative. I can achieve a very similar colour shift and 'surreal' contrast by scanning any colour neg and simply not applying colour correction as you would normally do. The rest of the effect appears (backlighting, harsh contrast) to be 'in camera', so to speak.

AFAIK this effect is called Solarisation (or solarization) and it's a phenomenon known already in analogue photography where parts of the image are wholly or partially reversed in tone. You could probably do some further search on the original phenomenon and try to reverse-engeneer it with the help of layers and transparency and the like.. There is also ...

Although you can't capture the true beauty of sunset light you can do a somewhat realistic effect in Lightroom. You need to scroll down on the sidebar until you reach split-toning. In there you should see sliders. You then set the highlights to a gold-ish colour (you can tweak this) change the balance to something in the region of 60-100. and the shadows to ...

In these images the reddish brown colour is highlighted, this can be done using the Select>Colour Range tool in Photoshop, and then giving the picture an overall HDR look. If you give a sample image I'll do this and show.

As you say, normally the flakes would be nearly invisible, however, the photographer has used a bright flash to illuminate the flakes, so that they are much brighter than the surrounding environment. This means that, even though they are out of focus, the flakes still appear in the image, but as big dots.

Take a look at G'Mic's filters Here are some similar filters that they have - artistic -> Rodilius - artistic -> painting - artistic -> Whirl drawing

To create this affect, two operations need to be performed. First, the blurred background -- blur the image, masking out the front of the head. Secondly, the skin needs to be smoothed -- blur the low spatial frequencies. This article explains how to do this in GIMP.

First, I can't emphasize enough that the look you are trying to achieve was not a Photoshop effect; it's the result of shooting a model in a tank (or pool or tub or what have you) of water to which something was added to make the water cloudy. Reproducing the look in post-processing is going to be a little on the tedious side, but this should get you ...

This is almost certainly manually masked/brushed. I would suggest a tablet such as Wacom as you maybe spending hours doing this; make a copy of the image blur it then bring back the wanted detail by carefully masking the blurred layer adjusting the brush transparency as needed.

There are many ways to create any effect in Photoshop so there is no way of knowing what he did exactly but if you want to create a similar effect without the use of plugins, you can first use the smudge tool to soften it a bit. Then add a touch of "noise" so it doesn't look 'too photoshoped', then duplicate the layer and add a vignette shaped mask to it but ...
