I have adjusted a few, some are better and some are worse, I need another opinion to get the color right so I can use it to adjust the others.

First I set overall colour balance with a curves adjustment layer sampling with the eye droppers ... peak white on the white panel of one of the sunshade neutral grey fom the building on the right, and black from the area in the trees above the sunshade. This didn't do much for your wifes colouring admittedly. see below

Once I got nearer to a tanned look I flattened the image, and first thought add contrast by a global curves adjustment, but couldn't acheive what I wanted, so abandoned that approach final result was with an overall shadow/highlights adjustment

Hope the above gives you some ideas to acheive the result you're looking for. The workflow is as below ... you could do the Shadow highlights adjustment as another layer of course and save the whole as a .psd file, I've had to flatten and save as .jpg to display on this board ... Jack

Last one tweaked, I was wrong BTW ... you can't do the Shadow/Highlight adjustment as a layer, at least not in CS2, not sure of later version. ... Jack

Hm...mm !, not happy with the last pic there's a green cast crept in from somewhere. This is better, but there's still a hint of green in there, I don't have time to go further now though
