Greetings from the Critque Club!

Composition:
Your framing is spectacular. The couple is rule of thirds, the flag poles are all ragged and leading down to your subjects. The colors you captured are gorgeous.

Lighting:
Perfect. The people are perfect silohets, the texture on the ground is a nice touch. (someone said they'd have preferred no detail in the foreground, while that is usually good, I really think it works well for your photo.)

Technical:
Your technique is flawless.

Post-processing:
I'm sure you messed around with levels etc or something similar. You did nicely, not only are the results gorgeous, but it doesn't have that overly-processed look. Whatever you did, it definately looks good in this photo.

Overall:
I wouldn't change a thing. Excellent capture, excellent submission. This challenge had some stiff competition, so your 82% percentile finish is well earned.

Look forward to future submissions.

Wonderful sky and a very effectice silhouette. I really like the red highlights on the ground - but dislike the white line in the border. Colors are absolutely perfect.

Beautiful colors! It's hard to make out exactly what this is, and the silhouette of the "flag"(?) coming out of the man is not very attractive.

Good portrayal of emotion. With the slight silhouettes of flags and the strangely shaped poles, it leads me to believe that there was some struggle or hardship before the happy ending. Regardless, the picture tells a story and is very well done.

Beautiful photograph, but two small complaints. I wish the foreground were entirely black. And I would have preferred your subjects to be just a tad farther apart to better accentuate their forms, perhaps even quite a bit farther apart and holding hands or something.
