dancing queens

The scene you see is the tester for the dancing segment of my sons first house party. We set up the dancing area in the living room, complete with christmas lights, and my mom and daughter gave it a spin. The party has now been over for an hour and a half and the house is still standing, whew.
This photo was alright as is but i found the floor and my mommas legs a bit on the light side. I duplicated the background layer and did a curve to darken the whole photo. I then created a mask on this copied layer and filled it with black, to hide all of the darkening. I then painted in white on the mask with a nice large brush and an opacity of about 40%. I just built it up until it looked right.
