      Amazing you got the sun in there AND balanced the flash so well on the foreground.

      What really makes this is the leg shadows. The high strobe gets their faces, while the sun pops the legs into silhouette and shadows coming forward. It makes the sun do about three different jobs. The building creates the right edge, the clouds and burned in sky (?) create the top edge, the shadow line creates the bottom edge, and the left most "model" and the building behind him create a nice left edge. I can't decide if I like the hot element in the background behind the guy's hand... is it distracting or helpful? Really, I guess I don't care, because I like the photo so much. Not just nice strobe work, but also good physical placement. Good exposure setting to get the sky and clouds. Strong in so many ways. This shot just plain rocks.
