Spot on!
There are people who actually think LENS stabilization is better than sensor shifting!

Good selective focus on the front girl.
Considerations for you-
I am not convinced on sharpness of her front eye.
Is the guy necessary?  He breaks the pattern of three pretty girls in white tops and is further forward than the back two girls.  I would zap him.

For visitors who may not read all- these are always the effect on me and are not criticisms....john

Sure, could do more of a square crop with out the guy. Focus could be off indeed, lot of movement going on.

The three girls each with different expressions works well, as John said, a square crop to remove the guy in black would probably strengthen the image.

One of the 'guides' of composition is to have odd numbers of things, but it's one that does depend on the overall image - still, like all the 'rules', while you don't need to follow them, they can be a useful guide on what might be worth looking at changing for an alternative version of an image.

I completely agree with the odd number strategy. In this case I like the way the four heads move up and down in the frame. I wouldn't mind just the girls but getting rid of the guy's arm convincingly would be difficult for me.
