Nice raw imagery there.
I like the high contrast B&W rendition you've done to this photo.
Thanks for sharing.

I like it, I like the harshness of the light combined with the contrast of the kids, it feels like a day on a hot beach...which it probably was? Also makes me think...what was the little girl thinking? Excited, a little hesitant, or just daydreaming? I like shots where you start to think about what you see.
Best Regards!

Not sure why I like this one but the composition does seem to hold the eyes.

This is classic. Composition can not be beat. You should submit this shot to some competitions - very very good. It has that international look.

-if you cut out little from the left, so that the girl and boy are symmetrical, it may look even better.

Rupert, thank you for your thoughtful comments. like you, i like scenes where there is a scene of mystery, paradox, and sometimes even transcendence. at least that is what i aim for on some occasions. silhouettes seems to work well with such aims.

ajlec2000--thank you for your comment

Abhi--thank you for your kind words. i guess cropping could make the photo "cleaner," but lately i've been leaning towards compositions with more layers and complexity. like many others, i started out shooting within the boundaries of the "rules," like the thirds, but lately i've been trying to expand my visual horizon. thanks for the thoughtful feedback!
