Well, after I saw this post, I totally fell in love with that coloring and wanted to try to do it, and I think I got pretty close, so here's a tutorial I wrote:

I've just tried this and come up with something. Feel free to try it, I don't know whether it's what you're looking for but yeah, I'll try it with other pictures and then post pics afterwards...it's just rough instructions as I've never done a tutorial before...oops!

1.Get your base image, make adjustments(lighten, sharpen etc)
2.Open a new project, paste a copy of your adjusted piece into it.
3.Go back to the first project, set the layer to sepia.
4.duplicate your layer and set that to Desaturate and set the layer mode to screen.
5.Add a new layer and set it to the bottom(to do this in Gimp-get your bottom layer, duplicate it and delete the original layer. Then get new layer and move to bottom)
6.Select your Sepia layer and set it to screen, adjust the opacity to the correct setting for your picture if you want hints of colour, if not just don't even bother with 5 and 6.
7.Merge layers and save.

edit-step 5, set the Sepia layer to Lighten only, not screen. Or, for more effect set this layer to overlay and duplicate it.

BTW this is in Gimp

Also, the Sepia layer, you may want to duplicate that and set the top sepia layer to colour and set that to the lowest setting.

Like I say, just play about, these are not good cos I've rushed them to get straight to the point but they're examples of what I came up with on the way.

Dunno how to do the imagey posty thing so the links are here...

kay. so here is what I do to get a similar coloring:

Take your base. if it's dark, duplicate and set to screen. you know, do the basics.

New layer, fill with a navy blue, like #0B114D and set it on exclusion.

New layer, fill with a beige, like #F8F1E0 and set it to multiply.

duplicate your base, drag it to the top, desaturate it, and set it to soft light. you'll get something like this:

oh, and for a little more blue, make a new layer with a medium/darker blue to black gradient and set it to lighten.
gradient I used:

hmm... I would probably try to take away from the master saturation, then add a dark blue set to exclusion.

Result I got with what I posted, with some extra effects..:
