    I love the vibrant earthy tones. I thought it might be some kind of lab colour tweak overlayed with gaussian blur?????????


    I'd love to find a tutorial on it.

    I did some very similar shots for my coursework. Can't attach any of the good ones as they're all saved at sixth form, but I've attached a half edited one so you can kind of see what I'm saying.

    To get a similar effect, you need to be taking your photos in a natural light with lots of greens/browns in the background. If you're not lucky enough to get the sunlight bursting through the trees, use a lighting flare (filters>render) on Photoshop. To get the same sort of tones, go on to colour balance and increase the green and yellow (if you don't have the foliage in the background then this won't look right). In some of them, it definitely looks like the photographer has increased the black using the levels tool. Messing around with the curves will definitely help. When I was editing my set, there was a lot of trial and error because the natural light and shadows were so different. This should get you somewhere near to the pictures you've shown.
