Hand Tinted Photo Effect in Photoshop - New or Improved Skill Day 4

I found another nice tutorial from Design Nocturne, he described it as an elegant sepia but it looks more like vintage hand tinting to me. I did two versions, one I added a light gradient and one followed his directions more closely. I thought it would be good to reuse the Grain Belt sign for comparison to yesterday's vintage image. I didn't photograph the steps since the original tutorial does a very nice job, the notes are a reminder in case the site disappears.
