What can I say, a really nice shot. Are the circles on the image from the light?

Shows a lot of potential - you've cut the girls out to get rid of distractions and also filled in the empty space with some interst in the lens flare filter.

the mono toning is soft and fairly flattering

All I'd suggest is a little more practice with the brush tool - try using it on a very low opacity so that it has minimal effect, you'll get smoother lines around the girls and that will give you a less jagged effect

With all due respect, you overdid the "photoshop", or post-processing. The skintones of the girl on the right do not seem natural in comparison with the eyes. However, the exposure and contrast do seem very keen.
