First time I have tried a challenge for a long time.

First I saved a copy of the green channel for use as a luminosity mask.

Took the white of the small gnome-like figure as the white point and forced to 255 in all channels. Used the telephone as the black point and forced all channels to 0. I thought the dress was probably white so I took readings from several parts and equalised the channels. The green casts on either side were difficult and I don't remember exactly what I did and they need a little more attention. The chair losts its green colour (I think grey is more likely) and the tree foliage was made more green by adjusting black with a selective colour adjustment. Skin tones didn't look too bad throughout. I didn't go any further because I couldn't see any more clues as to what colour other objects were.

Very nice work. From what I've been seeing, this one was one heck of a tough challenge.
