    As some of you commented you were going to try gradient maps, just some tips:
    - remember to use it with moderation (it can be as bad as too much alcohol)
    - play with the colors and opacity to achieve different effects
    - you can use a mask on the gradient to soften it in specific areas
    - be careful when you use greens on people skin (they get a zombie-look). On the other hand cold colors can be great for landscapes.
    - it can be used to unify color palettes (if you have used more colors than you wanted)
    - you can use it on photographs too (the result can be a little instagram-ish)

    Your first example reminded me of the X-Pro II filter in Instagram, that's why I liked it so much :-)
