|*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*
A very pleasing image that meets the challenge well.
There are varying degrees of flare dependant upon the angle of the lens in relation to the light source, your flare is subtle but definitely there, I'm all for subtlety. I particularly like the rim lighting on your patient son, quietly counting down the shots, before he goes and get some more indians, good for him!
Your focus and DOF works well. It can be difficult to control the exposure shooting contre-jour as you are here, you have controlled it well. The tones are lovely throughout. His position is a little too central, I feel it would have improved the shot if he had been placed a little further over to the left, diagonally opposite the light source and flare.
I hope you have followed SandyP's words of wisdom and hung it on your wall? Thank you for your lovely submission, Sid
