[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A friend of mine thought me a new technique, to photograph against the noon sun. I couldn't see much, my pocket camera shade my face from the harsh dazzling sun and I just clicked on autumatic-closeup mode.

Your friend taught you a very useful tactic, which produced a stunning image! The backlighting is awesome and the detail captured is exceptional. Love it!!

Unusual effect, indeed.

I myself prefer not to cut part of a plant and hold it to the sky for photography, as many do. Call me a purist...
