From a technical perspective this image seemed to be all wrong at first, but I realized I had used a similar dark backlit sillouette and strong sunlight glinting off waves to good effect before.

It’s tough to do unless you have a good flare resistant lens that doesn’t suffer from other aberations like purple halos and the like. Most of the time I use a CPL filter to minimize reflected light, but on these days I left it at home.

For a more correct exposure I could have avoided backlighting and used a polarizer to cut out reflections, like in this one.

I guess some variety is good.
