Experimenting with color grading

I started experimenting with color grading on two photos. I intentionally chose kind of neutral and bland snapshots on purpose to start with, because I thought it might give me a better sense of  the effects. I plan to play around with these tools a lot more, especially for portraits and landscapes.
