I to even out the facial skin tones with OnOne's Portrait application.

I used an inverted overlay blend and gaussian blur to move the Highlight and Shadow tones together.

Curves adjustment with a gradient was used to lighten the lower right portion of the photo and keep the left as it was.

I used the inverted overlay blend and gaussian blur again, I used a mask to keep the ladies as is, but the blend smoothed out the brick wall and lessened the impact of the shadows. The strength of the lighting seems to necessitate some type of shadow behind the ladies. It's just a matter of featuring the ladies and not the shadows.
