Restoring challenge! Please help!

Well, I'm new to the restoring peice! But not to retouching! Have zero experience with this type of PS work!

It's afamily picture froma friend of mine, this is going to be a brithday present for the dad(guy in the middle). The pictures is around 22-23 years old!
This picture has been in a frame and the sun has set it's mark on it!

This picture needs a full touchup(remove ring, right colours etc! I have tried, but failed! Yes, I admit it! I'm not perfect! Therefor I turned my eyes to the restoring guys at RP.COM!

can you help?

Re: Restoring challenge! Please help!

This is what I have so far. I don't really have a specific workflow here and most likely will change what I'm doing now. For now I have just cleaned up a bit of the dust, marks etc. Working with adjustment layers and masks, tweaking around with this and that, not so much as to get the colour right but just to get the centre of the image as close as I can match to the rest of the image.

I went in a different direction. I tried to match the outside of the circle to the center section, but that way I didn't get nice colors like Littlecoo.

Here's my go at this. Not perfect, but not too bad for a rush job.

Re: Restoring challenge! Please help!

this is one of those that Flora was really good at. i'd suggest looking up some of her posts for more help.

i gave it a shot, nonetheless.

the first problem was the lighter inner circle. i selected that area and inverted the selection. i ran a hue/sat on that to get the areas more closely matched and then did a bit of clone to remove the transient ring between the two areas.

i also selected out several areas for special treatment, the lower left skin areas, the baby's arm and leg and the guy's face. i treated each of those separately with various adjustment layers.

when i had all the separate areas looking better, i did some global adjustments for balance and color.

i then ran a digital camera noise removal on all.

then just a tiny bit of spot cloning and airbrush to fix a few small specks.

Hi there

Here is my attempt as well... I used a selection and a couple of color samples as I reduced the sun damage.
