So....what do I do next please......your examples would be great

Hi
A friend came to see me with a badly damaged photo.
I could not remove from the frame because I was scared of damaging it further.
It looks as if it has stuck to the glass at some time and someone has tried to remove it and irreparably damaged it.
I therefore took a photo of it in the frame and now have a workable before and after.
However, it just needs more punch and perhaps colour adjustments BUT, not really sure which way to go...
I am thinking of removing the people at the top of the image but before I do that wonder what I can do re the colour now.
It might also be that friends here would want to undertake a full restoration for a challenge.
Any help would be appreciated.
Best wishes Ray

My effort so far
