Sisters? I'd say twins - oh - that would make them sisters huh?
This is a good shot, but needs some adjustments in post-processing.
If you have Photoshop CS2, open it as it is, go to shadow/highlight tool, click Show more options, and adjust to the following numbers top to bottom:
20 | 50 | 30 | 0 | 50 | 30 | 0.01 | 0.01 and click OK.
Then Image, Adjustments, Auto-Contrast. Then Image, Adjustments, Photo filter and accept the default warmer at 25%. Then Image adjustments, Hue/Saturation and add 20%. That will get this a lot closer than it is in the challenge. There are a lot of other steps that can be/could be done with 3rd party filters & actions, but for a quick basics, this gets it pretty close.

I like your photo, but the lighting is off and it distracts from the real beauty of these two.

Nice capture. It looks like it could benefit from a levels adjustment, and/or a color balance. It seems a little dim and with a bluish overcast.

Nice shot. Lightening the highlights (via levels) would enhance this a little.

Nice composition and pose, good facial expressions. The lighting is poor, too dim and very flat.
