Hello again
Well this image is very dull and so the main challange was to try and get some colour into the image.
This i did by trial and error, switching back and forth between the a and b channels, gradually finding what made the image more pleasing and what made it worse.
I did some experimenting with the L channel but left it more or less where it was as I felt that the amount of brightening was a taste decision and would depend on what the final use for the image was.

If you go back to the beginning and set only the shadow, highlight and neutral on the L Channel, then curve the L channel to bring out the highlight details and then use the saturation slider, you might be suprised how fast and easy you can fix this one up.

The yellow in the image is really not there...It appears to be an artifact of the attempt to saturate.
