Wow Doug, that's a great shot. I love the way you've used the back lighting and still kept some detail in the shadows. Great composition too. #2413

Thank you, Michael. When I run across something this good, I bracket my shots. In this case, there's a real danger of that sun over-influencing the light meter, so I shot one a half stop over and a whole stop over. I think this was the original one, though. #5894
