My goal for this photo was to adjust the color balance and bring out more detail in the shadows.

1 First I made a copy of the background
2 In the new layer, like many others, I copied the green channel into the red
3 Added a curves layer set to multiply blending
4 Added a color balance layer and did some tweaking.
5 Created a new empty layer and merged the visible layers into it.
6 Did a shadow/highlight adjustment on this layer to open the shadows
7 Created a new levels layer and did an auto adjustment, and then did a bit of tweaking on it.
8 Created a new empty layer and merged the visible layers into it.
9 Ran neat image on this new layer to remove some of the JPG artifacts
10 Used the clone brush to fix the two corners on the left.
11 Used the blur brush to remove some of the posterizing along the top of the image.
12 Used unsharp mask
