Just my 2sen worth of observation. Good Luck!
hehehee..... good eyes!!

I just adjusted to something thats pleasing to my eyes. Didn't bother with realistic WB or anything. Stuff I did :

Removed green cast.
Increased general contrast.
Increased tonal contrast to lift out some of the textures in the feathers.
Shifted green tones to richer orange.
Added vignetting.
Unsharp mask twice.

Top one is the original.
Are they all men in the pic?

Hahaha! The question crossed my mind, too, but I thought not to spoil anybody's hard work! Now that the arms and feathers are fixed, how about the face of the girl (?!) in the middle - the colour of the skin is positively frightening! Mask out the rest of the picture, and try adjusting this a bit, to see if it helps?!

It's like trying to flog a dead horse, isn't it?! The starting point of the picture is so problematic already. We're talking about colour balance of various parts of the picture so much - we haven't even talked about focus. Why not move on to some other shots, where planning prevents the problem?! Cheers!

I think you're missing the point, this section is for people to practise their PP and to share techniques with other people.

The more problematic the better.

My 2 cents. We're starting to get artifacting from re-jpeging this image. Can be seen on the right side of the main girl's face (as we look at it). Hope this helps .
