Twilight capture at Peggy's Cove. Not the typical lighthouse scene so interested in feedback. Thanks in advance.

You've done very well here with composition and exposure. There's just enough detail in the shadows to let you know where they are, but not so much as to ruin the silhouette. You caught the boy making a gesture towards something off camera, which, IMHO, adds a little tension to the shot. The silhouette isn't very crisp, but that could just be compression from having to make the shot so small for this website. If I was to offer any suggestions, it would be to wait a few more minutes until the sun was lower and the lighthouse was lit. Of course, if this was a shot of opportunity and not one that was posed, that wasn't an option.

Otherwise, nicely done and keep it up.

Realy nice.

Micro nitpick: The horizon appears just off level.

This image is a fresh treatment of an arguably over photographed NS icon. I like it from both a technical and esthetic prospective. Great job!

If I were editing it, i'd move the lighthouse to the right so it is in the 1/3 line... there's too much empty space there and too close to the left edge... i'd even remove the little weed on the right, and i'd darken the foreground so it disappears and becomes black.

You might consider a variation that eliminates the lighthouse to focus on the figures.

I would just make the subjects sharper. Not sure if it's the quality on this forum but they seem a bit blurry. Looks awesome though!
