    I suppose this is the million dollar question what constitutes back lit?
    As you can see its lit from behindt he shadow couldn't be any clearer.
    I took this the yesterday its a shot from a prewedding shoot i did (and no its not a paid gig!). And as it fitted the theme here we go.

    Crawled back out of the woodwork have we? :p

    Nice fun shot this, I like it. My picky side says I'd have probably reduced the exposure/highlights of the path, but that's all ;)

    I must disagree. That would make the shadow too dark and it would dominate the bottom half of the shot way too much :p

    Hence why I said path and not the whole shot :p Plus reducing highlights 'shouldn't' effect the shadow too much, plus I was only talking a bit to stop it looking a touch blown ;)

    I like it. It's a nice moment, captured well. Lighting is good. I would of gone for a closer crop. My eye is drawn to the wall in the background which unbalances the shot.

    Agree about his eyes and the distracting wall, otherwise it's a nice enough shot.
