We investigate deuteron two-body photodisintegration within the framework of the Quark-Gluon Strings Model with nonlinear baryon Regge trajectories. Special attention is paid to the use of QCD motivated Regge trajectories of the logarithmic and square-root form. We find that the recent experimental data from TJNAF in the few-GeV region can be reasonably described by the model. Angular distributions at different $\gamma$-energies are presented and the effect of a forward-backward asymmetry is discussed. Predictions for the energy dependence of $d\sigma/dt$ at higher energies and different $\Theta_{\rm c.m.}$ are presented, too.
