A very challenging image to edit indeed. Setting the custom white balance was the easy part, compensating for the spot light streaming down the statue creating the light blue aura was the hard part. Was able to blend the colors to match for the ceiling and statue but the flooring had to be totally desaturated then later tinted with a yellow layer at about 7% opacity.
