How do you fix this?

My professor took this photo at graduation and her digital camera went crazy! I have tried to fix it with no luck. Is there a secret to remove the pink tint without taking away from the details or other colors?

For anyone willing to try the building is white, door red, our robes are black, and professor's hood is bright blue. I also would like to know what technique you use to fix it so I can do it if it ever happens again.

Thanks in advance for help.

I used the color balance adjustment layer for this. I focused on the highlights and lowered the amount of red in it.

Then just a bit blending experimentation.

Re: How do you fix this?

I had a few moments to try my hand at this. I can't write out my steps right now, but am including a screen capture of my layer's pallette. I added color to everyone's faces, it's not good, but I really have to run. This is just a very quick attempt.

Re: How do you fix this?

The problem with this picture is that as well as the colour being wrong, it is also blown out.

So badly that I'm afraid there's no detail to recover.

The colour I corrected using the white eyedropper in a Curves layer, sampling on the collar area of the figure 2nd from left (as we look at it).

This gave the gowns a green tinge, so I used a 2nd Curves layer and sampled with the grey eyedropper on one of the gowns.

Haven't made any attempt to minimise the blow out, just corrected colour.

Re: How do you fix this?

Converted to B/W using Selective Color action called "B&W selective color KentC," Created by Kent Christiansen (found here).. adjusted colors till I had a nice B/W... Refined the B/W using levels and curves... Flattened this new image and drug it onto original pink while holding shift key down (to register both images)... Changed the mode of the B/W layer to Luminosity..
Select>All.. Edit>copy Merged... Edit>Paste... Final levels on this layer

Re: How do you fix this?

I changed image to LAB and fiddled around with the 3 channels until I got the best picture possible. I then changed back to RGB and played with the levels. I then selected the building and using curves got the color you see. To get the door I went to Hue and Saturation, Colorize and got that reddish shade.

Sorry but I had so many steps that I can't remember exactly what I did but the steps listing will give you a general idea.

I was getting results like the other nice people who tried to fix it. I was using the same processes they were using, so I now know it wasn't just me. ;>) But I really need to check out this process you used, as the photo is almost perfect. At least you can see the faces fairly clear. Thank you, I have had another learning experience!
