Create a new Gradient Map Adjustment Layer (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Gradient Map) and use the settings shown below. Change the blending mode to Soft Light and lower the opacity to 37%. As you can see the contrast is slightly increase and we have some new warm colors.
Create a Brightness/Contrast Adjustment Layer and increase the Brightness slider to 110. Use the Gradient Tool again in the layer mask to restrict the effect only to the lower region of the scene. By doing so we will put the focus on our underwater dragon.
