Severe sun bleached photo

I have not had any luck with restoring this type of pic and am seeking your help.

I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right starting direction so that I can renew this pic. The one that I did was cropped and converted to B&W but was lost and I would prefer to restore the colored version.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

The color is pretty much gone at this point. You aren't going to be able to restore that. Your red channel is completely non existent on this photo.

I did a crop of the faded areas, desaturated, then redid the levels to get as far as I did.

From here I would do more defined work on the faces and bodies, and then if I wanted color back on the picture I would go through and colorize it.

Thanks Noel: It is quite amazing that you did exactly the same thing that I did. It looks like you have found the one that I lost.
Thanks for your reply.
