This is beautifully precise, and beautifully timed. I do like the way the children take precedence over the iconic backdrop.
The right hand side of the frame doesn't add anything for me, it dilutes the impact. I feel a tighter crop could improve things.

Mod uploaded, I've cropped to square and also got rid of a few stray dots, no change otherwise. I particularly appreciate that little group of people on the headland in the background, they add balance. This really is a gem of a picture.

Excellent stuff.
You did well to catch those two in the foreground as you have done (or was it a case of 'machine gunning' and selecting the one that worked . . . ! ?)
Either way, it's a great capture.
I'm not sure how you've processed this. There's a kind of very pale 'vignette' effect towards the top right which caught my eye but then I might be inclined to crop some from the right anyway.

Well done.

Bren.

a different view of taj. i like it. the idea and the composition are good. but i prefer to see the taj without the people.

Great composition in the sense you have possible two photos in on, have uploaded a mod very similar to xwang but left to people in, it the people who makes the shot.

Its a magical shot. Great timing. I feel suggestions are trivial when what you have is so nice, but its up for critique, so here goes.

Think about making the silhouette of the boys pure black, - done in the mod. Check the Taj to see if its vertical, - its looks like it needs a clock-wise rotation to me, - just a little.

Loaded 2 mods, with the above done, mod2 is a letter box crop, and both are also sharpened a little which enhances the silhouettes.


Hope this is helpful,


regards
