Hi,
I decided to try this Challenge...
What I did was ... Just about everything I could think of ....
I started off by cropping the picture and trying to give more consistency to the image using the Curves Method described here:

http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/?m=show&id=65

The result looked kind of 'muddy' but I had more details to work on.
I think I repeated the procedure along the way ... but I can't remember exactly....

After this, it was Layer upon Layer of different kind of corrections for scratches, stains, tone and contrast.

Finally, I colorized the picture and used Custom Filter to sharpen it a bit.

Nice tones, (especially the darks), and the details in faces and uniforms looks really good. Your clever trick with the bg makes for a very nice composition.

Doug, Vijayan,

Thank you very much for your great feedback!!!

Doug,

I started off by cropping the image ... only to notice that I actually liked and missed the 'struggly' plant .... so ... I put it back ....
