Color cast and faded

I do not post very much unless I am really frustrated.
I am trying to get some color back and also remove the greenish cast.
I used a curve adjustment layer and moved the sliders around but can not get it to look any better than the second photo.
Will I have to convert to B&W and color by hand or is there some hope.

Thanks in advance for any response

Rich

This is my first try at this...

I split to cmyk channels, combined the magenta and pasted it on top of the original and set it to overlay 83%. Then just a slight colour adjustment.

I am sure one of the more experienced will come along just now and explain it better with a better result.

Edit: Eeek...I just retried it and I can't get it again!

On the second one I added more red on a new layer and set it colour 38%.

My try after restoration or retouching or manipulation (what is the method? ) was very difficult because of green colour that cover this photo. I used many layers adjusting colors, shadows and highlites, coloring parts of nature or clothes, etc. Of course, all of you know how many time must to be dedicated to adjust this photo. I know that my work is not very good but this is a simple explanation! Regards.

Hello there

I went a very simple route. I removed color and applied 4 simple gradient maps to apply color... It took 10 minutes to do so I did not stay in the lines everywhere...lol Sometimes on pictures with simple colors it is a lot easier to just colorize.

I used a map for the ground, greenery, skin, and dress.

Colorize

I decided to colorize the photo. After converting to b&w I used Image Adjustments shadow highlights to decrease the highlights of the photo. Particularly around the lady's forehead.

Thanks

I would like to thank everyone for their work and thoughts. I think the concensus is to colorize the photo either by adding it over what is there or converting to B&W first.
Thanks again,

Rich
