No special settings are needed, the camera just measured the backlight, reduced the exposure according to the bright sunny sky and the subjects were silhouetted. That's all.

EXIF would have been useful to complement the comment.

Truth is a pathless land.
The dead past darkens the ever living present.
Corrections and critics are more than very welcome, desirables.

Sorry, I don't get it. You start your thread by saying you need the settings to achieve a silhouette look. Then you now come in saying 'no special settings' are needed. Well, that's basically what other people here have been saying (i.e., most cameras in 'auto' will take a shot that looks like this under these conditions). And I'm not sure how your EXIF comment fits in ... Maybe the glass of wine hit me too hard...

I didn't start the thread Doc... just posted a replay.
