January Squares: Backlight

My most common use of backlighting is for flowers and leaves. This scene caught my eye the other day:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/506sec

The square crop is this:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.15mm 1/506sec

I used Hipstamatic to create the square, but other than the crop, I let the photo stand as is. What is and is not in focus I found visually interesting, so I didn’t attempt to “fix” it.

The Instagram version is here:
