Many thanks - I wasn't conscious about the second link - very interesting.
First I used a cubic space too, but hsl space is more convincing in the end.
Personally I use it as a tool to detect color errors in my images. Here is an
example with the last version of an old image of mine...

Because I render 16 bit png images, there aren't many defects as in 8 bit jpegs.
But what you mentioned, is something different. I included the web origins in
the source (p.b.s-f).
Perhaps the JW3 person didn't process the poster as heavily as the other one -

"Orange-Teal" is one of the most common color-grading effects used at
movie-making or by professional photographers.
There are many variants like enhencing blue colors in shadows and orange ones in
highlights and a bit in midtones.

I made a pov version, which gave ugly results and I cannot even find the file...
