Very nicely done indeed. The expressions are straight out of an old-masterly religious painting. Lovely kids too.

Amazing styling. They're skins are luminous and the expressions just so in tune with each other. A superbly professional job.

I really like the metallic effect in this image, nice technique with the textures - something I might try in the future. Lovely kids also!

Love it but just feel it needs a little more space left and right.

You certainly have created something special, a great family portrait and well done, although I do agree with DaveU's comments, more so for the right hand side.

well, I do see the point of more space on the right side...unfortunately that is what I got there :-(
I have tried manipulating more space, but a difficult task

Absolutely wonderful - definitely an image that has 'feeling'. No need to change a thing . . . but if you are concerned that it is not possible to add space to the right - how about taking just a little off the left to give the same kind of balance adjustment? A very special image.
