Silvering: Ack What do I do with this

I've been trying just using clone and heal brush with no luck. This is from a feather boa and then part of a belt buckle. It's only a portion of the photo. It looks as if every place that would have been black or dark brown if it hadn't been in sepia now has these light brown spots. The reason I say this is because even the pupils in the subjects eyeballs turned into this. I tried using replace color and also the color change brush but no luck either. Can anyone try either the above or another way and see if you can figure this out? I truly appreciate it.

Duplicate your layer and gassian blur until you can't see the artifacts that you wish to remove. Go back to the prior state and click on the little window next to the gassian blur state. You will see the little history brush in the window. Use the history brush, mode: "darken" and a small soft brush and brush out the spots ( I used a large brush just to save time so it will look better the example here... but you'll get the idea), if you also have dark spots you want to remove, switch the mode: "lighten" and have a go again. End with unsharp mask.

Applied Polaroid Dust and Scratch Filter. Mask out any areas where you may lose detail (I didn't need to do that with this image).

Couple of minor areas need a clone, but majority of white "noise" is removed.

I apologize that I probably should have mentioned that I didn't mean the dust and boy was this photo full of it. I mean the light brown areas. I tried cloning and it's not blending well. The healing brush is trying to pick up outside colors. I was hoping I was overlooking an adjustment layer or something. Thanks for the help though Here is new photo with the places I'm meaning.

I guess I'm a little lost without seeing the whole picuture, however, is this closer to what you want to achieve? Photo to the right is the retouch.

I understand what you mean twinkissed - just about to leave work. I'll have a go at it when I get home.

I understand the problem Nancy, just not sure that I can think of a good solution. In the attached I simply used the magic wand (set to non-contiguous), and then a hue/saturation layer to that selection. But the result isn't really that great.

Nanls, I know, I'm sorry. Always seems like the difficult ones are from the people that I can't post the whole picture. I appreciate you are trying to help me though

Caitlin, that's a lot closer than what I had gotten LOL. By the time I was done, the photo looked worse than what I started with.

NancyJ, Thanks so much and I'll keep checking back.

I'll let everyone know if my brain kicks in and I figure it out. I'm sure it's going to be one of those slap myself in the head things.

Without seeing the picture...is the problem you are having some sort of silvering? Is it an older photo? There was a thread on that just a few days ago...

If you don't come up with anything better the magic wand technique is probably worth a go - I just put another minute into it and masked out a couple of undamaged spots on the buckle that were caught up by the magic wand incorrectly, and then did a D&S filter. Starting to look a bit more acceptable.
