Great job! Maybe bring the color contrast down a bit, but even so, I think you've fixed that one up really well.

I took your "fixed-small.jpg" photo and added an image adjustment shadow highlights to it. I decreased the highlights.

I agree on the contrast. I really like the look Philbach did, I'll give that a try.

Re: thoughts on this photo

Hi there,
I am a new user in this community and really wanted to learn new and professional things and try my skills which I have learned so far.

And here I am on the road and the first speed-breaker , Starting from this picture, Punkjumper will you please help me explaining how did you manage to bring up so much color detail with just using curves only. I was going nuts to bring out the color of tree, skin and towel. I really appreciate your help to pass this breaker easily.
thanks

Re: thoughts on this photo

first I did a overall curve box to get rid of most of the yellow color. (I attached what I used as a starting curve box)

Then I used a curve layer and tweak it to the color I wanted, green for the tree of course, then add a layer mask (alt click layer mask to make an all black mask) then use a white brush and paint in the color. use varying degrees of opacity to suit (I use a tablet so it is much easier to do this) then did an overall opacity adjustment if needed.

that doll on the left is two different curves boxes. One for the darker stripe and one for the lighter.

here is a link to a larger version of the original (complete with junk that needs to be cloned out)

Thanks punkjumper, It really helped me out a lot, well the real trick is with the tablet I guess , I can't afford one right now but I have plans to have one cuz its a must thing for digital artist.

I think I have to practice more on curves and your explanation with the attachment was really helpful for me. Your work on the color correction with the recent picture really inspired me.
