This was a fun picture to take. Actually, they are my little sisters. I didn't have a little boy to use at the time so I dressed my sister up to look like one. It was a simple picture to take, but I thought the idea was cute. And the sunset turned out to be a really good one.

great colors and concept. However, the crop seems a bit off to me.

I would have preferred that you followed the rule of thirds with your composition rather than have the kids central...but a nice image overall 7
