    I have my own sharpen script that I run through Pshop regardless of the pic quality, it has always improved the image :
    - USM : effect 18, radius 40, threshold 0
    - USM : effect 150 radius 0.3, threshold 0
    - edit/fade USM, 100%, darken blend mode,
    - USM : effect 150 radius 0.3, threshold 0
    - edit/fade USM, 50%, brighten blend mode.
    Save it at once and run it every time you want!

    - I applied my script to your pic, reult was much more brilliant red colors,
    - then cropped what I could on the right side and balanced the format with a slight top cropping,
    - pulled slight the bootom of the curves to beef the contrast up in the darker tones.

    Doesn't show that much but I think I succeeded in getting the features of the first little girl's face a little sharper. I selected only the face of the first little since I find it OK that the one at the back be softer.
    I went wild on the Unsharp Mask settings with 125% / radius 9.8 / treshold 40.
    I found that my increasing the threshold it kept the sharpening on the features but with solfter edges.
    Do you notice that it made the white of the eyes whiter and the pupils with more light in them? And I did not play with colors or saturation at all, only the unsharp mask did that.

    I tried different colors on your frame, from white to black, but it didn't work. So I simply replaced by a thin black line.
