Set that layer to "Color"


STEP 003: Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves
Use these specifications.
RGB
76,57
211,188
BLUE

Set that layer to "Lighten"


STEP 004: Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color
Use a49d79 and set to 'Overlay' 100%


STEP 005: Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color Balance
Use these specifications.
MIDTONES -100, +100, +64
SHADOWS -39, -30, -48
