Silhouettes and Sun Flares

What a beautiful time of year- FINALLY.  It's starting to cool off here in the desert and I am taking advantage of the earlier sunsets and just messing around with back lighting.  It's kinda a scary thing and I have far from mastered it but a few turned out ok.  The look I'm going for is just as my post title suggests...  Silhouettes (and trying to get that warm glow around my subject- Riley, and his adorable bed head)
 And Sun Flares.  I kinda like the look of the hazy pictures with the lens flare.  I can almost smell the summer air.  So here's what I have to show for those.

And this next shot is technically far from perfect, but I love it.  It shows how active and playful my little man is and I caught him in the midst of a tickle tackle!   It warms my heart, even with the blurring.

Very interesting.. The middle pics look to me like someone's really growing taller!! He's looking so big to me. I especially like the lighting at the back of his head and shoulders on the first picture. Did you get any where his head totally obscures the sun and leaves sillouette without the sun flair on his face??? The 2nd one has kind of a halo effect and I like the composition. Nice pics of a great little man!! :)
