Start by drawing a marquee around the section of the photo that you want to add the tint to.

Click the Adjustment Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers Pallet and select "Curves"

As you click on the lightest point of the curve in the upper right. It should read inpurt 255, output 255

Drag this point straight down so that it reads input 255, output 77

Click on the curve to the left of this point to add another point and in the input box type 154 and in the output box type 59

Click to make another point to the left of this and make the input 71 and the output 59
Click to make another point to the left of this and make the input 30 and the output 24
click to make another point to the left of this and make the input 16 and the output 0

You should now have an adjustment curve that looks like figure 1.  Click OK

Now select the same area that you selected before and make another adjustment layer.

Select Hue / Saturation.

In the Hue / Saturation pallet, check the box that says "Colorize". Set the Saturation to 100%
The Hue should be 0 and the Lightness should be 0. Click OK

This is as close as I could get. You may want to reopen the Curves layer and tweak the points.

create a layer above the item(s) you want to show through, fill that layer with the desired color, then adjust the fill or layer opacity to the desired transparency.

after some trial and error. I would use 2 layers. one set to darken (blk) the original at about 40%, and the (red) color layer at 90%. based on the sample you provided, it also looks like there are a number of lighting effects applied to achieve the final look.

Once you have these two adjustment layers made, you can drag them onto any new photoshop file to place the same "tint" over a different image.

To make it cover the whole image, just click on the mask thumbnails of the adjustment layers and fill them with white

Then draw a marquee around the part of your image that you want to show through and with the mask thumbnail still being active, fill that area in the mask with black (do this for both masks)

It looks like about 50% opacity. Its hard to say exact numbers with this. Just play with it until it looks right.

Another method is to use the layer blending options instead of or in conjunction with opacity. You can scroll through the options until you get what you need.
