    This is my 2 cents...

    I love the composition. Your girls are beautiful. My only CC would be to sharpen the eyes a little bit and remove what looks like a color cast to me.

    I'm with Stella on this: the little sister's eyes are a bit dark and could do well with a bit of selective brightening. And I personally might consider brightening the twins' irises a tad, too, to make the eyes look more expressive.

    There is a green cast there ... I guess they were standing on your lawn for this to be taken? And that reflects off part of their skin. You might want to correct that?

    It is framed a bit tight, but that's ok.

    First of all, wow, what a great shot to begin with! You're almost there. The final touch as everyone has pointed out is to brighten the irises (and even the whites just a touch) and then give them an ever so slight bit of sharpening. Mind if I play with the color version?

    For starters, try highlighting her whole face and clicking on "lighten shadows" and see what you get.
