First cropped to centre the ladies.
Adusted levels.
Removed red eye.
Adjusted skin tones of the lass on the left as she came out a bit pale after levels adjustment.
Did a slight noise reduction just to smooth out the jpeg artifacts a little.
Roughly selected the figures, smoothed selection and feathered, then made layer via copy.
Back to original layer - heavily blurred, mirrored, flipped vertically and applied a radial blur.
Lots more could be done for the background (your imagination is the limit)

For the figures you could play with the Render - lighting effects filter, apply brush strokes, textures etc.

Just have a play, but remember to always work on a copy not the original pic, in case you need to go back and start again.

Very quick cut n shunt to put the girls on a new BG. (selection a bit rough, but this was just to give you ideas).

Sharpened, then applied Neat Image to reduce noise.
