Hi Pam!

You've received very good help already ... and here is yet another way to try to correct your picture ...

I did the following:

1) Duplicated the BG Layer.

2) Desaturated the reddish flare areas using the Sponge Tool (very soft brush).

3) Used the Clone Tool to remove the worst glare.

4) Adjusted the overall Colour with the Curves.

5) Created new Layers (one for each area to colorize) set the Blending to Color and after having chosen the 'right' colour from nearby areas, using a fuzzy brush, I painted over the desaturared/faded areas. In some cases this procedure alone wasn't enough so, I duplicated the Color Layer, set the Blending to Soft Light/Overlay, and adjusted the Opacity until satisfied with the result.

6) Used the High Pass Filter to sharpen the image a bit.
