Shadow Removal

Hi, I'm very new to photoshop and retouching, but have tried to read up a lot on this board and get the gist of things. I really like these pictures, but there is so much shadow on the faces. Is it possible to retouch these or are they beyond restoration? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Shadow Removal

It is salvageable..... I used shadow/highlight in PS and opened up the shadows....... fairly simple.
