I'm attaching a .gif of the progress I've made with this picture. I love my green tree. I don't know how to lighten the shadowy area around the TV without over lightening the right side of the picture and Ken, what do you mean when you say the face is "blown out" looking. Thank you all for your help.

I did some AB curve steepening in lab and some dodge/burn on the green and blue channels in RGB to bring out the tree. I also sharpened a little... perhaps too much.

when we say 'blown out' we mean way too white as if over-exposed.

as for the shadows on the corner, you could use a gradient mask and/or selection on that area and lighten.

nice job so far... keep goin
