I, too, love this photo. I have an idea, but would you please explain what is meant by "contralight".
Thanks,

"I have an idea, but would you please explain what is meant by "contralight"."

Contra-light: most of the light is comming from oposite direction, I took photo aiming towards the Sun. That's where the all flare and low contrast came from.

To All: tnx for kind words! Appreciated!
