It's always tough to shoot into the light and not lose your subject. If you over-light the subject, you lose the balance. This shot works extremely well in both regards: The background comes across as very powerfull, without overwhelming the subject, and the subject is lit enough to be obvious without drowning in light. A tough proposition for even the best photographer, even in concept, and it's been executed almost perfectly here. The action seems a bit stiff and cold, no real direction there, but that might be the point. Great job and keep it up! Hope to see more soon.
