1. Open your picture, crop, and smart sharpen.

2. Duplicate the background picture and set it to Multiply at 100%.
> If you already have a dark picture, set the duplicated layer to screen at 100%

3. Add a new layer and fill it with 06032b. Set it to exclusion at 100%.

4. Add another layer and fill it with 878129. Set it to soft light at 100%.

5. Add a final layer and fill it with 6b4175. Set it to soft light at 100%.

> If the opacities I have for the color layers don’t work for you, change them to fit your image.

6. Now go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves. On the RGB setting move the curve slightly up or down to make your picture lighter or darker. My settings were - Input: 83, Output: 101.

7. To enhance the coloring of the image go to: Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective Color.

Selective Color Settings:

1. Cyan (+ 36)
2. Magenta (+12)
3. Yellow (+ 64)
4. Black 0
> The yellow setting for this layer can look pretty intense on other blueish images. Move the slider to the negatives instead, or keep it positive by decreasing the amount of 64.

1. Cyan (- 45)
2. Magenta (-8)
3. Yellow (-32)
4. Black (+74)
> Like the yellow above, the black setting for this layer can make an image too dark. Modify it to make it look best for your image.

1. Cyan (+2)
2. Magenta (-7)
3. Yellow (+5)
4. Black (-5)
> Depending on your image, the yellow works better on negative, and the black positive. Also, the magenta can look too yellow on (-7), so change accordingly.

8. Finally, go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Brightness and Contrast. Set the contrast to +9.
