This is indeed a nice shot!

It's amazing how colours light up so when they are backlit. It's like neon at night. You can see an example by looking at my shot called Glory.

You can also get the same effect with flowers as well. Unfortunately, most people often don't shoot flower shots at noon when this effect is best. However, the only good flower shot at noon is by using this technique, which can be tricky.

I am curious as to what time of day you shot this.

Good work, and I will surely check out your site.
