Hi, I would like advice and critique to improve as much as possible. no matter how harsh.

This was shot at the Taglyan in Hollywood, California while people setting up for the 2012 porsche release event.

While flare can be interesting, I think this might be a touch too much. It distracts from the subject. Had you moved two feet to your left or right, I think this would have produced much different results.

Still a nice photo, but that backlight is just really harsh IMO.

I am afraid that the flare is just offputting to me too.

Flare is great for shots with a girl in a cornfield, or couples etc. as it gives a softer, romantic feel to the shots. It just clashes with a businessman in a suit, I am afraid. There are ways to use flare to give a harder, more powerful look to an image such as this, but a soft feel like this, doesn't go with the businesslike subject (IMHO).

Sorry.
