The question is whether the colors and tones are okay; this is clearly very subjective, and the answer for many people is a shrug and a "sure". But this is your image, and you're the artist, so the question is: does it match your intent? Are you happy with it? Does it communicate what you want to communicate? And, without more information from you, we ...

Highlight tone priority is a camera mode that internally fiddles with exposure to preserve as much detail as possible in the "highlight range" of tones...the brightest tones in a photograph. It does this, however, at the cost of tones in the shadow range, as the ultimate effect is a shift of the histogram down towards the shadows. The cost of shadow tones is ...

The first image has a generic low contrast approach beginning with very soft lighting (overcast conditions) plus possible further adjustments (contrast reduction / mild soft focus effects). The colours have then undergone local modifications, the top part of the image has been tinted pink and the bottom tinted green this can be done most easily with ...

This is one of the few image-enhancement settings that is extremely useful. It is in the custom menu because once you set it, you leave it and do not fiddle with it between shots. When enabled, your camera will preserve more details in the highlights at the expense of some details in the shadows. If your style is to expose for the highlights, then it will ...

Highlight priority underexposes by one stop by lowering the ISO, for this reason ISO100 cannot be selected with highlight priority. In post-process the camera compensates for the underexposure, except for the highlights As a RAW shooter you can archieve the same result by underexposing all your shots with 1 stop and then lift everything but the highlights. ...

I note that a wide angle lens was used and the vignetting seems overdone, so it could have a strong "postcrop vigneting" (LR calls it that). Secondly, curves have been adjusted for higher contrast and saturations other than red have been turned down, and red has been boosted I would guess (if it is a used subway cart the seats would be much more gloomy). ...

Excerpt from an official Canon Quick Guide: Highlight Tone Priority (HTP) All cameras have a fixed dynamic range, from shadow to highlight, that they can capture. HTP shifts some of the available dynamic range from the mid-tones to the highlights to produce smoother tones, with more detail in bright areas. This helps prevent JPEG images ...

I am not sure what you mean by glow, can you be more specific about which of your pictures you are referring to? If you mean the dress then the secret is in the lighting of the original shot mostly. However you can brighten highlights with the use of the Curve Adjustment Layer. (menu Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves...) EDIT: I found this tutorial on ...

It depends how different your backgrounds are and how well they respond to equalization. Here, I've picked a background where I know what color it should be: white. Then, I created a curves adjustment layer, pointed the white-point eyedropper at the location that should be white, and clicked. (Excuse the terrible circle and arrow art) This image didn't ...

I don't think there's a specific unifying name you could apply to the look in the images in your examples, primarily because they don't have a unifying look to be named. That said, the technique which would most typically be used to achieve the effect that you describe yourself desiring would be the high-pass filter, which adds that extra bit of ...

The main thing is it's a high contrast image, and then they've converted to B&W and used selective coloring for the red. Similar image here How can this lighting/color effect be done? where selective coloring was used.
