i know this isn't the sports section, but i would like some feed back on this image, please. i really don't care too much for on camera strobes, because i believe they make a very harsh light. i really have a fascination for using the sun to backlight my subjects, i know its weird but thats what i like. anyway, here is an example that i did for a young soccer team. i used a white lighting 800 with just the 6 inch reflector pointed at the subject, opposite the sun. i used a 40d with the 70-200mm 2.8 the exif should be in the photo. again, thank you in advance! john

Using the sun as a backlight has a notable advantage of not forcing you subjects to squint into the sun. Even an on-camera flash can often produce a decent result although a more diffused flash as your using will probably be more consistantly pleasing.
