Btw... does this look like a composite? Or heavily post processed? Seems like the boys were masked and the background motion blurred.

I would say, no. If it is, it's good. The shadows/sun direction seem true and the edges look clean. Nice that the full-size image is there to check it against. It looks like the photographer focused on the boys--pretty much the rest is in de-focus in the background. The only thing that might suggest it is the boy in the red trunks--his extended arm and leg look like their edges are a bit funny but that could just be sharpening halo.

Yep, those halos seemed odd to me (could be from oversharpening like you said), and the glow on the left kid's foot.
