Hello again
In this image I found that after a lot of experimentation that I could get detail in the sand but overall there was a red caste over the image. This is very noticeable in the parasol fronds and the sand.
I tried to remove it in Lab mode but removing the red caste in Lab brought back the blue caste that the original image had.
So I decided to tackle the red caste in RGB mode.
I thought that thisw was successfully done but now I notice that the deck chairs in the background are a bright cyan.
I would normally tone them down in a special layer.

This image is always a fight to the finish...

This is one where being subtle is the key..Fix the sand using the highlight threshold method. tackle the shadow on the chair and tweak the blues a bit...But too heavy of a hand here makes this image look garish..The cyan chairs is a good indicator that you have gone too far...
