1)Fixed a few blemishes in saturation channel.
2)Replaced the value channel with blue channel.
3)Duplicated the layer. Cloned the bottom layer wherever it was burnt.Put the top layer in hue mode.
4)Did some levles,curves and blur on the arm of the woman. I realized that I am not going to get anywhere near a natural skin color on the arm in my lifetime.
5)So stopped there, increased the levels a little and saved it.
Wonder why I did all this to get an unsatisfactory result.May be I should have just increased the levels and cloned the skin. No time to redo this one. Will try it out on the next restoration.

came over very dark on my monitor.. Like the restoration job a lot though. Color is a little muted also.

Not your monitor problem. I did something wrong which I realize now. The image had a lot of red(majority of skin), green(the entire background) and yellow(the damage).Since the damage was yellow(red+green)in color, the blue channel had very little damage.I was instantly tempted to use this channel in the place of value channel which was very much damaged.But I did not realize at that time that the information regarding the green background and the skin in the blue channel is very much de-amplified.The reason why it is dark. I was thinking whether it can pass off as a shot taken in dusk
