Start by posting a larger version so we can assess the image better?

turned off vilibility of pasted blue channel
eyedropper to select color from original photo
turned on visibility of pasted blue channel
added new layer

Hi there

Most damage was in the red and green channels... so just used the blue channel to fill the red and green.

Then a little cloning in lighten mode to get the rest of the damage... then a terrible color scheme...lol

That is an increadable fix. I am in awe. I never believed that those kind of results could be achieved. I have a lot to learn about retouching.

Thanks so much

Thanks for the tip. I had not thought about the channels aspect. I hope that I can get the same results that you did.
Thanks again
