    I found PS auto corrects (tone, contrast, color) to work remarkably well on this image. I also adjusted the levels in each rgb channel independently to even out the mid-tones and shadows. Work in the highest resolution possible, as the compression artifact damage was very noticeable between the channels.

    My quick 5-minute go at it. Of course, the image size limits full corrective effects...
    spot-healing; curves adjustments, and even some levels per channel.

    Here is my take. Auto-color does a good job on this image. After that, some cloning and healing, some more curves, saturation adjustment, noise reduction and a bit sharpening.
    The resulting colors don't look bad, presumably because all channels contain valuable data.

If anyone has any techniques they would care to share with me I would appreciate it. I figure I should get the coloring better before I start removing the spark marks and smoke damage on the photo.

    eeh help!
