I just used Shadow/Highlights and it looks OK to me but then again I don't really have a great deal of artistic of photograph ability.

Re: is there any hope

Didn't find much too wrong with the colour, so I just adjusted the lighting.

Duplicated image.
Desaturated new layer, then inverted it. Set blend mode to Soft Light. Adjusted layer opacity for effect.

Flattened image.

Duplicated, then extracted figures from scene.

Blurred background slightly, and sharpened figures, to give a little more seperation.

I selected the blue channel pasted to a new layer, inverted, blending mode to soft light, removed a slight green color cast.

oof, I did all the adjustments in camera raw. When I got it into photshop I made a dup layer and used screen mode. I masked everything out but your nieces eyes and dropped opacity to about 40%. That will work better on your origional.

To retrieve shadow detail: contrast mask adjustment, curves, levels. Crop for composition. Selective color desaturation to neutralize blue cast on his jacket. Semi-transparent selective color blur for background. HP sharpen. Gradient darken base.

Set neutral point in camera raw and added some fill flash. Opened in Photoshop and adjusted shadows and highlights just a smidgeon. Used a hue/sat adjustment layer to take color casts out of white coat. Took about 3 minutes,

Adobe Camera Raw comes with Photoshop CS3 - it's accessed through Bridge. That version will work on tiff and jpeg files as well as raw.
