Shooting against the lightsource creates a lot of problems for any camera. Usual outcome is a silhouette of your subject, characteristically lacking detail. A common remedy in such cases is using a flash or a light reflector to add light where it is needed. Let's see some successful examples in your shots taken against the light! There are rules to observe, too - PLEASE read carefully before entering your work.
