While this photograph isn't exactly symmetrical, I see where you were going. It's a great capture that you got with the 2 in almost the exact same "pose".

The colors seem just a tad oversaturated. Also, the subjects are pretty much centered. If you would have moved them a bit to the left, making it look as if they were moving through the picture, it might have scored a bit higher.

If this is helpful, please check the box.

Amazing capture. The color looks over saturated, but I still think this is an excellent entry.
