Thanks and great point about the florescent lights matching! I was thinking of just taking them out all the way... but if just color matching them would make the image look better I am game!
Here's a quick one I did for you so you can see if you like it.
There are many ways to do it, depending on your software. I use layers in Photoshop Elements 9.
I created three layers: a saturation layer which I took down almost but not quite to zero saturation, a brightness/contrast layer to make the lights look brighter, and a gaussian blur layer to give the lights some "glow."
I then masked out all the layers, and then used a soft white brush to reveal only the areas of the lights.
I like using adjustment layers, because I can individually adjust the opacity of the layers to control the strength of the effects, and all adjustments are non-destructive to the original image layer.
