    Hi Kathy

    Maybe just a couple of thoughts. The white sky does nothing, so crop down the image. The kids are the focus so perhaps a graduated blur from foreground to background which also takes care of a lot of cracks. The kids don't seem to be too bad once you run a mild blur over them. Also, some aggressive sharpening might help. Fast, crude effort attached just to give you an idea. Good luck anyhow.
