Only one suggestion on the restore - there are some repeating patterns in the clumps of cloned grass on the right side, next to the woman.

That man does *not* look happy to be having his picture taken! Hands in pockets and  "get this over with" in the pressed lips. Would love to know the story of that picture :)

Thanks guys.. I enjoyed this one a lot.  Shadow for color it was tricky cos of the red cast... I started with a levels adjustment which cleaned things up a lot.. then I did a neutral gray and reduced the opacity of that a bit.. the man's pants at the bottom where dark gray so I did a hue/sat and reduced the reds for both his pants coat and her coat. I took a color sample from her handbag (brownish) and painted a color blend over her coat.  Took a sample of the green grass color and painted over the reds in the grass..took a sample of his face color and painted over the grayish spots on his face.. that's about it..Oh and somewhere near the end I applied a reduced opacity multiply layer..
