Hi there, jclguru,
I used a whole bag of tricks here, think you may find interesting....

1) JPEG Clean-Up*;
2) Get luminosity*;
3) Use whole range: Levels, auto, 0,4%*;
4) Lighten shadows: Duplicate, apply shadow mask (<ctrl><alt><~>, new mask, invert), blending screen, opacity 50%, merge;
5) Equalize: Duplicate, Image>Adjustments>Equalize, opacity 20%, merge;
6) Less Light/Dark area contrast: Duplicate, High-Pass, radius 100, opacity 50%, merge;
7) High-Pass Sharpening: Duplicate, High-Pass, radius 0,4, blending Linear Light, opacity 100%;
8) Tweak Sharpening: byRo B/C* (controlled brightness/contrast adjust), grouped to High-Pass sharpening layer (<ctrl><G>), contrast +50%.

* see 10 min Toolkit

Phew! Who need colours, anyway?
