A quick fix, it needs a lot more but I don't have time.

Hi there

Here is another version...I'm afraid I could do little with it.

Thanks so much!!

I did some corrections and I think that by using the liquify tool, dodge & burn with some cloning & curves, you could get some good results.

You're right. This pic does not have a retouching problem . I think it should be posted in the Image Help forum.

Re: How would YOU retouch this mess?

here is result i got

i used the tech in the tut link to darken the hightlights

http://tutorialpulse.com/49/superb-s...h-technique/3/

then after that i fixed the curves to darken the area around the faces (using curve mask)
i also sharpened it a little(not much)
then i duplicated the main layer and made it a "highpass" filter and changed the blending mode

2 version color and B&W

I think you will make many new friends here.

You picked a doozy for your 1st.. IMHO, I think you have submitted one of the best repair jobs on this particular picture.
