How's something like this?
The main problems were related to the fact that it's a low-res image that's been kinda jpegged to death. Look at the legs from about mid-thigh down -- see how the pin-stripes get muddy from that point on? That's where the darkest parts were in the original image. If you've got a higher-res copy you may be able to eke out some more detail from there. The overall lightening of the image also made the jpg artifacts more noticeable, too.
You got a hi-res copy? It'll give me something to do this evening. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
P.S.: I'm no PS guru by any means, but it kept me busy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
P.P.S: I wasn't even about to tackle the first one... there's just no real detail in those dark tones to work with...
