How to get this effect?

Any ideas on how to get this sort of solarised effect?



Cheers

In Photoshop, try running Gaussian Blur filter over it with a generous radius, then Edit>Fade>Overlay... after that, you could also then mess with Curves and/or Saturation to get the final result you want.

that actually looks like an hdri photo to me, which can bring out some loverly strong colours, but sure you could fake that kind of saturation

try duplicating the layer then, for the new layer

set blending options to soft light.
Image -> Adjust -> Hue / Desaturate. Set Desaturate to -70
Image -> Adjust -> Brightness & Contrast set both to +10
Filter -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur - Set to 7.0 .

Flatten the image and play with levels settings
