    This photograph was taken by a Mexican photographer, this picture have really nice colors, like vintage or something, the sky have a great tonality, the detail of the plants is very good.
    What kind of actions do you think I could use to get those nice effects?.

    thank you for your answers :)

    Simply add a yellow cast.

    Notice how yellowish the clouds look and the buildings look.

    if you have photo shop (even gimp), over lay colors and mess with blending modes and opacity :) also try erasing some areas with a soft eraser to remove the effect from what ever place you dont want it.

    Actually It looks like cross proccesing picture, or lomo, but I tried to follow tutorials and I can´t get that contrast, or that quality the image have.
    Im using Canon Rebel T1i, i dont know If that photograph have location lighting or something to make it better maybe that´s why i can´t get the same quality or maybe he took some photos with different exposures and enhance the quality by mixing them.

    any ideas?
    I´m new on this, and I really want to take a photo like that.

    XPRO is one of the simulations included within the LOMO installable. there's a choice of 5 or 6 different ones.

    There is so much to learn in Photoshop. I have never even thought of applying a tint layer and the lessening the opacity.

    i understand. in fact, in the above screenshot - i'd turn off a lot of those parameters anyway. and within the layers control window i'd also manual adjust/reduce some of the seperate layers too. the default LOMO look applied by the script is a bit too harsh and crude for my tastes. but used minimally it can be a nice enhancement.

    Look up split-tone mapping and try messing with the different color channels in Curves ;). Experimentation will do loads for you.
