Okay! I'm waiting for someone who knows WHAT they're talking about to reply but I just want to mention that your daughters (?) are precious - this is a precious as diamonds photo.
I'm curious about the color of the water......

Not sure I'll live up to Katy's criteria, but I'll give it a go
Hi Ray, welcome back from me too.
As Katy says, a lovely family shot for the album.
I like the composition, although I might have tried to get the girls a little larger in frame by stepping a pace closer to them, that's a minor consideration and may have had an adverse effect on DoF. I'm not too fussed about the colours.
The problem I see is an unnatural looking darkening, mostly around the edges - I'm not sure if it is a vignette you have applied, or if it is some content based processing (LCE perhaps) that has had a peculiar effect.
I think it would have more impact if bigger, but it would have to be hosted elsewhere, your own place, or TinyPic, to be big enough; e.g. approx. 1200px wide.
Hope that helps,

I'm wondering if this image was cropped? The stones in the foreground look very sharp and the rest of the image appears out of focus.
