I think this could be improved by bumping up the contrast a bit. I like the silhouette.

this looks more like a pose than a candid shot.

good colors and nice silhouette - not a classic candid, but effective.

I like the colors and the silhouette in general. However, it appears to be a bit soft in spots, and it is difficult to tell if (along the top of the fence) is halo-ing from oversharpening or light reflections
