Basic Fixes on photo? Overexposed portions, etc

pretty new to photoshop (and this forum, great site btw) but have learned basics of minor fixes - eager to learn new and useful fixes.

i am attempting to make 8x10 prints of this image for grandparents and wanted to see what fixes might need to be made to this photo to make it look its best - (I'm atempting to train my eye to see imperfections, so any comments will be appreciated)

I'm using PS CS2

Re: Basic Fixes?

Well more needs to be done like the window in the background and the lady in the top left of the group, but I added some blue to the photo. I increased the luminosity on the left side of the photo and decreased it on the right side.

I used image/adjustments/shadow highlights in photoshop to decrease the highlights on the right side.

Again this is far from finished but at least you can compare one side to the other.

Re: Basic Fixes?

From adobe bridge click the image once to select it and then hit Ctrl+R, This should open it in Adobe camera raw. Take the temperture slider to about -36 and the tint slider to about -16 (just roufgh guess, to taste of course).

This should give you a little better starting point.
