To me it mostly looks like you have only done some basic leveling and then applied a filter and called it editing (this is cleaning, by the way. Editing if the full process of preparing (leveling, curving and redrawing) and typesetting/lettering the page).

As a starter, I would recommend not using any filters when learning, to get a good grasp of redrawing and manual cleaning. Using filters to clean up your raws can come later, when you are comfortable with what you are doing. At least to me it looks like you have used some kind of filter, no?

The blacks still have quite some dirt, but the white end of the spectrum looks quite okay. The main issue with the filtering is that you have killed the dotted patterns and turned them a bit smudged (noticeable especially in frame 4 for the glow from the wrist-thingies). The smaller details have also lost their focus (noticeable especially in frame 3).

Overall, a quite all right job for a first time. But difficult to tell how much you did, and how much the filter did.

Make it 1200px... 1000 isn't big enough.
