    Just brightened up the faces and bodies. Next time when shooting in a backlit situation, use a flash (fill flash), to avoid this issue.

    ^^ Grainy effect comes from the fact that their faces are underexposed in the original image. There's really only so much you can do in these cases, and sometimes the results can look a touch weird. Granted, starting from a larger image would likely have a better overall end result.

    Also... I'm assuming you didn't shoot this in RAW mode. Working with RAW would give you a bit more to work with since in this case you have lost data when the camera builds the JPEG image from what it thinks you need and what it thinks you don't.
