Quite good..although the person on the left has been slightly over exposed. But other than that...it's just fine.

I like the look. Would it look the same if you simply desaturated it? Do you mind posting the color version?

okay

here's the original



here's the desaturated.
because of the makeup my cousin's skin looks blotchy converted to B/W. so in color, i smoothened and flattened out her make up and then converted.
its okay but personally it needs punching up contrast-wise.

try the channel mixer if you have PS, first look at each channel, red green blue, and see where the best info lies, and use more of that channel as opposed to the problematic channels. Each example is different and thee is no formula to use for all pics, especially the difference between landscape pics and people pics, here`s a quick example

look how good your green channel is compared to the red and blue, some people would even take the green channel and say that is good enough

red- green- blue
