As you can see its mild tones of a dark cyan and faded pink on different shadows/tones of color but still preserving some little bits of color. Not sure how to accomplish this.

Any ideas?

  • Menu Select > Color Range > HighLights*
    • From the dropdown menu decide which color area will be affected
    • Moving Fuzziness and Range you can define how big the colored area will be


  • With this selection, make a Color Fill Layer

  • Make two Fill Color Layers with Midtones and Highlights selections to get the bi-color effect
  • Edit and adjust the Color Fill Layer Mask

    Looks like the OP images use "step one" twice on a color original: one for highest highlights and one more in the mid-tones with a tighter range. – Yorik Jul 26 '18 at 18:47
  • Yes, I saw that after I answer. Well, the technique is the same. – Danielillo Jul 26 '18 at 18:49
